Happy Birthday King

Elvis Presley would have been 79 years old today. The King of Rock n Roll never won a Grammy award for his rock music. However, he did win 3 Grammy awards for his gospel music.

The King's career did have some turbulent moments and one of those happened in La Crosse, Wisconsin. After a mid 50's concert performance the local catholic diocese sent a letter to J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI warning that Elvis was a security danger to the United States. Apparently his main infraction was autographing some body parts of teenage girls. How the times have changed!

The FBI Director kept surveillance tabs and a file on Elvis for the rest of his life. Apparently some things don't change!

Some Wisconsin laws obviously need to be changed regarding sitting governors being allowed to sit on juries. Governor Walker is currently sitting on a jury trial and one of the defendants is indirectly a 5 time campaign contributor to the governor. The trial judge is aware of this so I'm not putting this on the governor at all. But this reeks of conflict and the governor should be recused.

Apparently Sean Hannity has never watched a NFL game. He believes that Tim Tebow is being punished and discriminated against by the NFL for his Christian beliefs. Tebow was a terrible passing quarterback but this belief is blatantly false. Tebow was offered other position jobs by other NFL teams but it was quarterback or nothing for Tebow. Nobody in this country believes he is being persecuted for his religious beliefs except for a few low information followers of this empty suit.

Jimmy Buffett recently revealed a tidbit about his famous hit song "Margaritaville" which was released in 1977. Elvis Presley was scheduled to record it before his untimely death. I'm going to spend the rest of my day singing it just like Elvis!
