Jones, lead singer of the 1960s group that was assembled as an American version of The Beatles, died of a massive heart attack in Indiantown, where he lived, his publicist Helen Kensick said.

Jones, 66, had complained he wasn’t feeling well earlier in the morning. Fire-rescue personnel responded, taking him to Martin Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

More from TMZ.

The passing of Davy Jones really hits home and reminds me of my childhood and days gone by.  Oh how I remember as a kid watching the Monkees TV show and my sisters would have Davy’s pic on their bedroom walls. Talk about a simpler time and when TV was not filled with reality TV, but more upbeat and fun TV. Check out more of the life and times of Davy Jones. In 1989, the Monkees received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Monkees TV Show Theme

Hey, hey, we’re the monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

You know that we want to
Do what we like to do,
The only time we get restless
Is around something new

Hey, hey, we’re the monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We’re just trying to be friendly
So come and Hey, hey, we’re the monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down.

Farewell Day Jones, rest in Peace … you made all Monkeys believers … from the Monkees, “I’m a Believer”.

GOP Presidential Primary: Mitt Romney Sweeps Night, Victorious in Michigan and Arizona


What was touted by many political pundits as a potential nightmare evening for Mitt Romney, in the end Romney won the primaries in both Michigan and Arizona. It was a runaway victory in Arizona; however, Michigan was a much closer race. But was it?Romney topped Santorum in AZ, 47% to 26%. Romney’s victory in Michigan over Santorum was a much closer tally at a 41% to 38% margin. But was it really that close in Michigan? Not really, as Democrats who voted in the GOP primary went for Santorum heavily. There is no way these folks would ever vote for a Republican against the GOP Presidential candidate.

Romney wins Michigan and Arizona by this much …

The victory by Mr. Romney in Arizona, which awarded him the state’s entire allotment of 29 delegates, was overshadowed by the battle in Michigan. He prevailed in the statewide popular vote by four percentage points, relying on large margins in the counties around Detroit where he spent his childhood, but the fight for delegates was closer.

Michigan awards its 30 delegates by Congressional district, which meant Mr. Santorum would either leave Michigan with nearly the same number as Mr. Romney or only slightly fewer. Mr. Santorum beamed when he took the stage before a cheering crowd in Grand Rapids and reminded his supporters of how far he had come.

Exit polls in Michigan say …

Just curious, if Obama won a state by a close margin, after having won so many in 2008 by a large margin … would the liberal MSM call the victory ugly? Of course not. If any one made such a comment, the liberal press would be posting articles that the GOP called Obama ugly.

In the end, a wins is a win and its onto the next state …

Barack Obama’s Shovel Ready Projects … GITMO Terrorists Get $750,000 Soccer Field

Is GITMO a prison or summer camp for terrorists?

The federal debt is at an out of control $1 trillion, yet that does not stop the feds from continuing to waste even more money. GITMO terrorists get $750,000 soccer field. May I ask who actually provides the stamp of approval on such ridiculous and wasteful projects to the American tax payers? Add this to the list of Obama’s “shovel ready” projects.

At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches — at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.

The project was the highlight of a tour Tuesday of the detention camp for reporters at the facility covering the arraignment in a military court of Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident and the the only legal U.S. resident on trial at Guantanamo.

The project began in April 2011 and is due to finish this spring. The detainees will now have three recreation facilities at Camp 6, which is home to “highly compliant” detainees who live in a communal setting.

In addition to an indoor recreation field and the existing outdoor recreation field, the new soccer field — selected because it is such a popular sport with detainees — is half the size of an American football field.

How do most Americans feel … what Atlas Shrugs said, “I think I am going to puke. Then cry. Or maybe cry first and then puke.”

Louis Farrakhan Deals Up the Race Card, Again … Warns of Racial Hatred that could Lead to attempts to kill President Obama

The Race Card and Hate from Louis Farrakhan …

Who is really tired of the race card? This is all the LEFT and the race baiters like Minister Louis Farrakhan have left when it comes to Obama. After all, it is not like Barack Obama can run on his record. Instead those that have been causing dissent between the races for years like Louis Farrakhan now warn that racial hatred could lead to an assassination attempt.

In a fiery lecture to thousands of followers of the Nation of Islam on Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan warned that racial hatred could lead to attempts to assassinate President Barack Obama.

Farrakhan spent much of his oration decrying what he cast as Satan’s influence over racist forces in politics and society before asking a pointed rhetorical question: “Do you think they’re wicked enough to be plotting our brother’s assassination as we speak?”

Then again, its not like Obama does not use the race card at the drop of a hat. So now we have African Americans for Obama. Really Mr. President? Imagine if we had Whites for Romney or Santorum … oh that would go over well with the MSM. So this is the “hope & change” that America was promised. Interestingly enough most people like Obama as a person, its his radical Left and socialist policies that they can’t stand. When it comes to hate, Farrakhan need to look no further than the mirror.

Farrakhan drew a distinction between noble Jews and followers of “the synagogue of Satan,” and he pointed to a recent incident in which the publisher of a Jewish magazine suggested Israeli security forces could help preserve Israel by killing Obama. He attacked Israeli policies, while also directing criticism at perceived Jewish influence in the U.S.

“Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over,” he said, blaming the entertainment industry for degrading the country’s morality.

Hmm, isn’t it Hollywood where Obama has his high priced fund raisers?

Barack Obama Looks to Cut Military Healthcare (Tricare) But Not for Unionized Civilian Defense Workers

Barack Obama, “Union” Commander in Chief …

If anyone was still wondering which side of the fence that Obama stood on when it comes to the US military, they need look no farther than his proposed budget. Obama looks to cut healthcare benefits for active duty and retired US military, while while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits unchanged. Go figure.

The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.

The Gateway Pundit reminds us that Barack Obama cut pay for military men and women serving in harm’s way starting this month. Nice, eh? One would think that of all individuals employed by the US government, the US military would be priority one.

This hardly seems FAIR Mr. President, since you are so fond of everything being such. I would also agree with the Lonely Conservative and her questioning of your admins priorities when it comes to healthcare.

Rasmussen: 55% Oppose Affirmative Action Policies for College Admissions as SCOTUS Agrees to Hear Case

As the SCOTUS agreed to hear the case of colleges using affirmative action as part of college admissions, a recent Rasmussen poll shows that 55% of Americans oppose using such policies.Just a mere 24% are in favor of applying preferential treatment and affirmative action to college admissions.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 24% of Likely U.S. Voters favor applying affirmative action policies to college admissions. Fifty-five percent (55%) oppose the use of such policies to determine who is admitted to colleges and universities. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Just last week the SCOTUS agreed to hear a case dealing with affirmative action and college admission.

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear the controversial case Fisher v. University of Texas. The case comes from Abigail Fisher, a white college student, who sued the University of Texas after she was denied admission.

The current standard of affirmative action usage in college admissions comes from the 2003 Supreme Court case Grutter v. Bollinger, discussed by the Ohio State Law Journal, which allows continued use of affirmative action as long as race is not a deciding factor and is only one of many factors in an applicant’s admission. Also noteworthy in the Grutter decision was the inclusion of a prediction that, while affirmative action was still necessary in 2003, it might no longer be valid in 25 years or so.

I believe that the Court should take this opportunity to hasten the end of affirmative action in college admissions and not wait an additional 16 years to let it expire.

More Class from Leftist Protesters … Throw Urine Bombs at Denver Police

More respect and class from the protesting LEFT …

Protesting Leftist pigs threw piss bombs at police during a protest in Denver, CO. Five protesters were arrested and face charges including criminal mischief. Although reports are stating that these protesters were not affiliated with the Occupy Denver folks, when was the last time your heard of the Right or the Tea Party throwing urine at police? Hmm?

Several protesters were arrested Saturday evening during a disruptive anti-police protest in downtown Denver.

According to Lt. Matt Murray of the Denver Police Department, at 7:30 p.m. close to 60-70 anarchist protesters started marching on 16th Street Mall.

The Mall Ride was forced to shut down as protesters allegedly threw urine-filled balloons, set off fireworks and sprayed painted several vehicles including an RTD bus.

Leftist Class personified!

Obamacare is a Negative for Barack Obama in Battleground States in 2012 Presidential Election

Gee, who could not have seen this coming … Obamacare hurts President Barack Obama’s reelection bid in 2012.

Obamacare is a net negative for Barack Obama in battleground states in his 2012 reelection bid. Obama, Democrats and the MSM thought we would forget by now that they forced Obamacare down the throats on the American people. They were wrong. In battleground states like Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are all negatively impacted by Obamacare. What does this say about Obama’s signature legislation that so many are against it?

In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of the nation’s dozen top battleground states, a clear majority of registered voters call the bill’s passage “a bad thing” and support its repeal if a Republican wins the White House in November. Two years after he signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act— and as the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments about its constitutionality next month — the president has failed to convince most Americans that it was the right thing to do.

“Mandating that you have to buy the insurance rubs me the wrong way altogether,” says Fred Harrison, 62, a horse trainer from York County, Pa., who was among those surveyed and supports repeal even though he likes some provisions of the law. “It should be my own choice.”

Obamacare is an albatross for Obama. It won’t go away and will be a deciding factor for many on the fence voters in 2012. As reported at The Hill, Obama fading in head-to-head matchups with Romney, Santorum. When “We the People” look at the specifics of what Obama has done in his first term vs. what the MSM wants to spin Obama’s accomplishment as … there is no question as to the choice that America is headed in the wrong direction. Even worse for President Obama is the fact that Obamacare and the “individual mandate” will be reviewed by the SCOTUS prior to the 2012 election. A majority of Americans are in opposition to Obamacare. So what’s worse for Obama, the SCOTUS knocking down his legislation or the SCOTUS enraging “We the People” prior to the 2012 election and voting for the government take over of healthcare? When 72% of Americans think that Obamacare in Unconstitutional, Barack Obama and the Democrats, you have a real problem. Its a lose-lose for Obama.

It’s not just Obama who will have to explain Obamacare in 2012 … many Democrat US Senators will also need to justify their vote and going against the will of the American people.
