Ladies and gentlemen, 2014’s best rock song is ….

Grammy nominations were announced today, and as part of the full-service investigative journalism that you’ve come to expect from this blog, I have now listened to and carefully judged all five entries in the category of best rock song of the year.

Of those five, the best rock song of 2014 is:

Of course, that doesn’t mean it will win the Grammy. It just means it won a JayBee, for whatever that’s worth.

The state of GA does not register firearms.  Only 6 states have gun registration.  GA is not one of them

Good to see the college kids out in Berkley showing some enthusiasm.  I love that, and it's why I'd like to see the draft reinstated without exemption, get these college lamo-s fired up, protesting and rioting and setting cars on fire and the like.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed rumors this morning that the company would be handing over names and photos of site users who have posted pictures of themselves with guns to the government. Democrat leaders applauded Facebook's move, stating that it is important to know who has guns in America, especially since many of the weapons that they'd seen could very well be unregistered.

@KUTGF It is none of the govts business if I own a gun.  What will the govt do with this data?

@LilBarryBailout @KUTGF  Much like AAS or TD posting a Issa photo or a photoshopped protestor sign, it is not my job to check on the truthiness of the original story.  My only comment was on the flipping out.  Now Wile E Coyote, are the gun nuts flipping out?  LOL

Weren't you going on about personal responsibility and choices last night? 

Don't recall getting a response from you about how the NYPD officer who made the choice to use a long-banned chokehold procedure on Eric Garner, leading to his death, is going to take responsibility for that choice. 

Rule of law means taking responsibility applies to everyone, with no special exclusions for agents of the government, right?

@LeninTime @WGA1990 

I answered you, Lenin. Maybe you fell asleep reading the communist manifesto. Evidently, the so called choke hold may be banned by the NYPD but there's no state law concerning its use. The medical examiner determined that Garner's health issues contributed to his death and the G.L. couldn't find probable cause to indict Pantaleo. Pretty much end of story unless the Fed files charges but that would require racial motivation and that doesn't appear to exist since Garner was breaking the law and store merchants in the area filed complaints against him not to mention his effort to resist arrest.

@LeninTime @WGA1990 --   And you won't.  It's only about "personal responsibility" if you're poor and brown.  If you have money, are a corporation, or are NOT brown, it's about "someone else's fault".

Difference between liberals and conservatives? Many conservative conspiracy nuts (Birther's, Benghazi!, etc.) get elected to Congress, have TV shows, etc. Liberal conspiracy nuts (Truther's) seldom get elected to office or have TV shows because liberals are generally smarter.

Jay, needs to get back on the job and herd his sheep. They've wondered from Cliven Bundy to rants about Christians to white on black homicide and other topics that occupy their far-left liberal minds. The recent shellacking in the mid-term election that portends the fall of liberalism in America has them in a state of denial and uncontrolled frenzy. Now all they can do to comfort themselves is to call conservative bloggers racists.

@SFM_Scootter @WGA1990 

Yeah the beat goes on. Maybe Jay should have Tuesday night music to help get them through the week. And maybe Wednesday night music as well. Eventually, turning his blog into an all music forum. That should keep them occupied and in complete denial for the entire week.

Golly, I wonder why Fox "News" decided to devote no fewer than five (5) above-the-fold linked stories to "How Much We Wingers Hate Us Some Rolling Stone"?

 And white-on-black homicides are 354 percent more likely to be found “justified” under the law (meaning perpetrators escape charges) than white-on-white homicides.

And if you even bothered to read many of my posts, and you recall my history as an elected official, I have never been shy about articulating my true feelings about anything, stands.

And neither were the voters who voted you out.  :D  What was it one official said:  "bitter young man who threw away what could have been a promising political career because he couldn't keep his mouth shut or his fingers off the keyboard"  While some may claim "true feelings" others may regard as not representing the taxpayers.  That seems to be a real problem of the GOP these days.

In an unrelated rant, will somebody please tell that d-bag on the Today show that Beyonce and JayZee are NOT "our royalty?"

The lineage of this pastor is dubious.  The original Christians were middle eastern, as was Jesus.  The bible was written in Greek, and the descendant of the original Christians is the Eastern Orthodox church.  That church converted the Romans, and in turn the Romans converted the barbarians and pagans.  We are descended from that branch of Christianity, i.e. the barbarians and pagans.

Our branch of Christianity conducted the crusades and more recently invasions of middle eastern countries.  An example is Iraq, where more than one million Christians have become refugees and fled Iraq.  Keep in mind these Christians are the descendants of the original Christians.  In retrospect the original Christians would be better off, had they not converted our ancestors.

This pastor's barbaric attitude is an affront to the original concepts of Christianity.

@Kamchak How bout in most Islamic nations where if you're gay you can be killed by law...

@WoodstockMike 

False equivalence. 

This Baptist minister wasn't advocating laws that would kill gays, he said he would pray to his god that this man would commit suicide.

I think Woody is trying to say that American right wingers are slightly more humane to Teh Gheyz than are some authoritarian regimes run by religious d-bags.

[golf clap] for our slightly more humane right wingers! Forward!

Cameras on police will reduce the arrest rate. Reducing the arrest rate will 

reduce the crime rate, since unreported crime is not reflected in crime rates.

Ummmmm.  Nope, I don't think so.
