The Most Rare Scott Joplin Composition

"The Picture of Her Face"

This video speaks for itself; because both my parents are deceased, and I don't have any photos of either of them, thanks to the fire.

Scott Joplin plays an homily to an unknown "Grace", either a first wife, a first love, or to his Mother.
Whomever, he loved her very much.

Please, do take the few moments to listen, won't you?

Scott Joplin's most unfamiliar, most intimate composition,
"The Picture of Her Face", from 1895 :

Happy 25th Anniversary,
NASA's Hubble Telescope


“This vista of starry fireworks and glowing gas is a fitting image for our celebration of 25 years of amazing Hubble science.”

Through 25 years of smudged lenses, bad gyroscopes, and still producing images of God's living, loving universe which are stunning beyond imagination, beyond comprehension, maybe it's time again to congratulate NASA for something it got Right~!!

My favorite image is the Deep Space Image, not shown here. Instead, here's a representative image of our Milky Way home, and our relative position therein.


When seen in this context, why do our world's problems seem so important?
Yet our creator, Father God knows where each one of us is, 
He loves us that much~!

4/21/2015= I'm Really Having a Pretty Good Day~!


Nothing serious going on, except that I'm feeling cold (it's cold and rainy out), but I'm having a really good day.
Unusual, huh, for a 'known Malcontent'?
Today is my beloved, late grandpa's 101th birthday.  Heyyah, Papaw.

Despite being a life-long Democrat, he once confided to me that he voted for Richard Nixon for President twice, before swinging back Dem. for his last 4 Presidential elections.  Yep, he and I disagreed on Reagan, but I couldn't vote, so what difference did my voice make, back then~!  He also told me, that if I ever told anybody (then) that he'd voted for a Republican, he'd call me a damn liar... even though he really did!!

I believe that I know what my extraordinary, old Choctaw mentor would have to say about Hillary Clinton, yet as a Christian man, 
I cannot say those words here. 

Speaking of Hillary D. Clinton, here is her campaign's new OFFICIAL campaign theme song, debuting exclusively here on 'The Local Malcontent':


"The Hillary Waltz 2D Presidency", circa 1935,
when Hillary was in the 2nd Grade, and one year before
she perfected the polio vaccine.



(it is rumored, however unverified, that little 7-year-old Hillary is playing the kazoo on this recording as well; there is very little research being done to establishment as fact, and the future=tense Pres. isn't saying anything about the claim)

There Is No Need To Rebuild Our Home

America, We Love You, and we promise to defend you, ~!

WE Americans need to awaken, We need to come together, not take sides or fall into traps, designed to alienate ourselves from one another.  
That is the Democratic Party ambition:  division and animosity, hatred, anger, resentment.

Instead, we should all come together for what is truly, morally correct and just.  Overall.
We are far, far, far better off, when we all remember that our differences, through debate and study, make us all stronger by such, when the superfluous and the shallow concepts of short-sighted Liberals diminish by the overall good.

Enough editorializing.... bring on the videos~!

IT IS OUR HOME, OUR AMERICA


















The "Assinanations" Among Us


I am simply astounded by the sublime irony of the ordinary illegal alien-immigrant, who comes to the United States in order to escape the squalid, poor conditions back in their former land, only to get here, settle in, and continue to practice the political backwardness of their pasts.

To describe these people, who want it all instantly, from their new Uncle Sam, yet still remain devoted and  loyal to their old country, I have coined for myself a new word to describe the above:  
Assinanations.

Millions of illegal assinanations call some place within America home now.  Yet, they also fondly recall the political graft and the old ways by which their former countries hardly functioned at all,
instead of really grasping the true Ideal of Americanism, the American dream of real Liberty, freedom from governmental oversight and control, regulation and constricture.

Assinanations chose to flee from oppressive, overbearing, irresponsible governments.
Why The Hell would they then choose to elect, or re-elect someone as repugnant as those from whom they all have fled?

Illegal assinanations want America to be like their Mexico, their Honduras, their Haiti, their El Salvador (lol), in part, for their language and their familiarity with tradition.
And the Democratic Party in America recognizes that trait in them, 
and flaunts it, encouraging division in any/every way possible.

To the point that the party members, candidates, and elected pols stress 'dependence upon us, just like you were back then, but you're in a different place, so it will be different.  Ole~!' message to the assinanations.


For these bottom - feeding, American politicians, their word is assassination.  

Perhaps our new neighbors, the assinanations who have come here illegally, could become interested in another word, of which they have heard before:  Revolution

*****************************
And why the hell don't Democratic politicians similarly honor, suck up to, the original inhabitants of this wild, wide land,  
We Indians, as much, as valuable, as honorably as they do these foreigners?

Seems that Communist equals Democrat to me~

Wal-Mart Fights-Back


It's about time~!

Wal-Mart has closed 5 stores in four states, which coincidentally, are the same stores where employees staged a strike for $15.00/hour starting wages, last fall.  

In six months time, the laid-off workers can re-apply for their jobs, if they want-to.  

And therein, lies the essence of the basis of the wage debate:

You apply for a job at Wal-Mart, or at McDonald's, or a a Choctaw casino, whatever~
You go through the interview process, and a job offer is extended, replete with your starting wage, of $minimum/hour.

AND, you accept.  You accept that bargain, agreeing to that employment contract.

Because $Min.hour beats the $0.00 per hour that you made last week.  Period.  
You are given the time(s) to show up for work, or orientation, whichever, and guess what?Because you got no money in your pocket, you show up~!, looking forward to that first fat check you can cash in two or three weeks.   YEAH, YOU AGREED TO THE  BARGAIN

You accepted the terms of employment... now complete your part of the bargain, or Go Back To Zero dollars Per Hour.   It IS THAT SIMPLE, STUPID.


I eat at lots of McDonald's restaurants every week, all over eastern Oklahoma.  I treat the people serving me with respect.  I hope every one of them seeks personal improvement, , aims for great, ambitious life-goals, and consider McDonald's or Wal-Mart as only preliminary stepping- stones along their own, personal work histories-successes.

Wal-Mart suddenly closed five stores in four states on Monday
for alleged plumbing problems.

The closures could last up to six months and affect roughly 2,200 workers in Texas, California, Oklahoma, and Florida, CNN Money reports.

Wal-Mart employees say they were completely blindsided by the news, having been notified only a couple hours before the stores closed at 7 p.m. Monday.

"Everybody just panicked and started crying," Venanzi Luna, a manager at a store in Pico Rivera, California, told CNN Money. 

All workers will receive paid leave for two months. After that, full-time workers could become eligible for severance, according to CNN Money. But part-time workers will be on their own. 

Local officials and employees have questioned Wal-Mart's reasoning for the closures.

According to ABC News, "no plumbing permits have been pulled in any of the five cities where the stores were suddenly closed for at least six months."

A city official in Pico Rivera confirmed to CBS Los Angeles that the city has not received any permit requests for building repairs.

In Midland, Texas, where another store was closed, a city official told ABC News that his plumbing inspector was turned away when he visited the store and offered to help secure construction permits.

"Uhh, Pick Out the Ones That Smell
the Worst, And Hurt the Most"


By that blog title, anyone would think that I am talking about the 2016 Democratic Presidential candidates.  Kinda, well yes, si,  right~

Instead, it is a Lucy Ricardo line, from a beloved episode of "I Love Lucy", wherein 
Ricky freaks out about possibly going bald. 

And how Lucy 'Helps out'.

Below, please ENJOY this hilarious episode of "I LOVE LUCY":

Dear GodLess Heatherns in California

Hey, "Leader" Jerry Brown,

Want some rain, some water?
Well, do ya, punk?

Then recognize Jehovah, God Almighty, as your Lord and Savior, INSTEAD of GOVERNMENT BY MAN, in Sacremento, and then drink freely~!

As we Okies do, today- We have more than we can use, thanks to our Holy GOD:


Hillary Rodham Clinton's Famous Laugh, Explained

Honest Injun, this is true:  Some female hyenas have penises, too. 
--Just like the male hyenas!!

And just like another more familiar, related, American family, the Clintons:   
Bill has one, Hillary has one, Chelsea got one two~!

Posted here is a rare family reunion of the Clintons, in 2013, videotaped secretly by the Secret Service assigned to protect former President Bill Clinton, otherwise known as the Condom Squad, guarding them both against bimbo eruptions. During which, one clearly hears Hillary's famous hyena laughter as she swings her
erect manhood around:



Do you hear Hillary's recognized, shrill laughter, as she and the Clinton family frolics?

But as everyone has suspected since 1973, Hillary the hyena has a biggun, uhh somewhere, in a lockbox, I'm told; 
As to how often she takes her dingy out for a sail in the breeze, I don't know that.


Hyena laughing, that's Hillary- to a tee.  The shemale bonding which 'she'  tries, with everyone, including her married, female assistant at State, is what will be revealed in the next 18 months, for all the world to cringe AT.

The Doobie Brothers - South City Midnight Lady





I am such a lucky man to love such a wonderful South city midnight Lady, 

sometimes when I'm all alone, I cry thinking about you and our love~

And So the Season of Hillary Begins


The wacky Democrats are putting their best pinch-hitter up to the plate:

Former carpet-bagging-Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton has announced the poorest kept secret in American history today:  That she's running for President in 2016.

How many good people must die this time, for her to achieve this goal of hers?

Since the Democratic party is bereft of new ideas politically, their intent is to resort to novelty once again, in the female personage of Hillary.  Here's her campaign's logo:



Notice the fat legs of that letter H-- they're huge, they're thick, just like hers~!

Notice the far-too-simplistic square block style, like a challenge to a 4 year old, asking, "which two blocks are the same?"  In Hillary's case, the blocks keep changing color and shape, depending upon her most current revision of history.

The red arrow points to the Right:  and it looks phallic.  That part probably represents Bill....

The best quote I've seen regarding this logo of Hillary's comes from Jim Treacher 
of the Daily Caller, who quipped:
"This isn't @Hillary Clinton's campaign logo.  She just left her blinker on."

This Calls for Some "Kitten" Magic

"Kitten on the Keys" by Zez Confrey, that is...




Today is the exact kind of day, where I love to listen to ragtime piano all day long, because it pumps me up so, causing me to get alot of things done for my wife.  This is how I tackle a "honey do" list of otherwise, mind-numbing chores, specifically designated for us males.
My 'honey do' list?  
I have to clean out the garage,
I have to clean out the gutters on the house (I hate climbing my ladder),
I have to caulk the west bathroom window, outside/inside
I have to dig a trench and then bury an electric line down 
the back incline to Leticia's fishpond,
then string up party lights (Christmas lights) in a circle around the fishpond.



Don't worry, I have a plan:  Ragtime music Energizes me for just such annual events~!
Loads of Scott Joplin, some Zez Confrey, some Charley Straight mixed in for fun~  Maybe, even, some Xylophone and Kazoo, courtesy of Mickey Xylophone:



And maybe some late in the day, Sugar Cane for added energy~



OMG, let's get to work already!!

Tonight, Leti gets to pull and braid my hair- ah, sweet retribution! Thank you, Kitty magic

Here Come The Kaliphonies ~
Let's Show Them How We Really Feel

From D.C. Clothesline:

In December 2014, NBC Nightly News reported on a massive amount of rainfall that fell in a 24 hour period. In Southern California, it was 8″ or more in spots.

During the broadcast, an NBC reporter interviewed Fritz Coleman, a Southern California Weathercaster for KNBC, who stood aside the swelled Los Angeles River and said: “All of our water – we sit and watch it run down the L.A. River and we go – see ya.” The reporter then claimed that, in fact “85% of all the rain water that falls in Southern California is wasted.” It is not collected or diverted. It is allowed to simply run out to sea.

And why is that? Well, of course – it’s radical environmentalism and the extremist policies they push, with the aide of their willing accomplices in the California State House and Governor’s Mansion.

Just as they do nationwide to our energy sector – forcing the closure of hundreds of coal plants, not allowing drilling on federal lands or permitting the construction of nuclear plants, these environmentalist wackos have all but caused the drought conditions in California.

So here come the Kaliphonies back East, escaping their man-made Dust Bowl.
Back to areas of the country, where common-sense water policy
has been in effect since at least 1945.

There IS, in fact, one particular form of discrimination and bigotry, which is perfectly normal and fully accepted within the US borders.  Can you name it?

It is the discrimination exhibited against Conservative, Republican, Christian ways of life.  

We all see proof of that form of discrimination on so-called 'news-channels' like NBC and CNN all the time; most university campuses along the east and west coasts and most recently, with an interview of Presidential candidate Rand Paul on the "Today" Show, NBC.

And since this form of discrimination is completely acceptable, I would suggest to the leaders of several Red, conservative legislatures in Topeka, Austin, Oklahoma City, Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Lincoln and Jefferson City to refuse Liberal immigration fleeing California, bent upon destroying our states next with their disastrous environmental policies and other hair-brained ideas from settling into our part of the country.

~~Exercise our discrimination, it's OK~!  It's endorsed by all three broadcast networks, the Executive branch of government, and the Democratic National Committee.

It could sound something like this:  
"Humm, ma'am, it says here that you were a registered Democrat, back in San Bernardino.  Is that correct?" 
"Like yeah, and??"
"What about your uh, six children, here, are they also Liberal?"  Just keep on moving lady, try Chicago."
