Murder Most Foul, We Are All Conspiracy Theorists Now — Guess we are all conspiracy theorists now. Nobel laureate Bob Dylan released his first song in eight years two days ago (March 26). Murder Most Foul is about 17 minutes long and is his best since the 1970s. It’s subject is the murder of John F. Kennedy and how things really haven’t been right since.
You will not take it as a defense of the Lone Gunman Theory.
We are including images of the lyrics. Here is the song:
But leave that aside. Here is our song idea. It’s called “Can’t just come to Canada”.
You see with the Trump Administration in power, Canada is sending emissaries to the American illegals telling them no vayas al norte.
“You can’t just come to Canada and cross the border and stay there the rest of your life,” Pablo Rodriguez, a member of parliament and a strong ally of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, said only last month.
So Erick maybe you can take our idea and make a social justice rap with it or something. You don’t even have to give us credit.
Truthfully, Erick we don’t think you’d want to go to Canada. Did you ever notice the resemblance between Trudeau and Fidel? Just sayin’.
Stay in Miami. You are employed and here legally, right?
Robert started a gubernatorial run as an independent in 2010 against Tom Corbett before dropping out. In 2012, he took on Chaka Fattah in the Pennsylvania 2nd District congressional race as a Republican.
Imagine how much better things would be if he had won either?

Shia LaBeouf Opera — Hollywood superstar Shia LaBeouf is in the news again for insane, violent public behavior. Apparently the inauguration of President Trump has sent him over the edge. The below article was originally posted on Dec. 11, 2014 and it is quite newsworthy so we are republishing it.
We were wrong about Rob Cantor though.
Musician Rob Cantor — whose name we expect will be as recognizable as anyone’s by next year — wrote a goofy song concerning actor Shia LeBeouf as the protagonist of a horror film.
He made a cartoon of it and put it on YouTube in 2012 where it became moderately popular.
Well, someone cooked up the idea of making a highly polished live version of it featuring an orchestra, choir and extremely skilled professional dancers.
LeBeouf himself even makes an appearance.
Did everybody get their standard rates in making it? LeBeouf certainly didn’t. It involved at least two dozen professionals and took more than a few man-hours.
It’s free on YouTube and we didn’t see any adverts when we watched so the cash certainly isn’t flowing in from it.
It’s gotten 6.9 million views as of this writing, however, so Cantor’s visibility has increased and LeBeouf has shown himself to be a good sport. Count them as beneficiaries. We guess money isn’t everything.
Anyway, if you are one of the 6.9931 billion who hasn’t seen it, here it is:
