Why Does It Matter?

Culture

Does culture matter? Culture reflects an image of society. If we aspire to truly higher spiritual and moral achievements, it will be reflected in popular culture. That was the mood of the 1960’s. People seemed to desire something better for all. Popular music was multi-faceted and the themes of “love, peace, and happiness” prevailed. Since that time, society has devolved into fragmented, polarized factions with a few lusting for money and power over all. Popular music reflects it, too-all image, no substance. All looking for a more elaborate way of saying nothing… Garbage in, garbage out. Homogenized drivel. Yes, it matters.

Freedom

Does freedom matter? Do you want some faceless bureaucrat dictating every aspect of your life? Do you want to be banished to the digital gulag for having your own point of view?

This “funneling” involves social scores, financial transactions, education opportunities, medical decisions, in short, everything. Who better knows your needs- you or government? Choose carefully. It’s permanent with socialism. Yes, it matters.

Rule of Law

Does the rule of law matter? We have a totally corrupt Deep State (former and current) attempting a coup of our duly elected- President Donald J. Trump. They are trying to project all of the crimes they have committed on to him, making up stories and lying every step of the way, not to mention negating our vote. If they get away with this and escape their own crimes against humanity, we are surely lost in post-modern lunacy. Do you wish to have unequal two-tiered, elitist/globalist-tilted justice system? Are you still “innocent until proven guilty”? Do the ends justify the means? Yes, it matters.

Theft

Does theft matter? If a political party cheats to win an election, does it matter? If dead people, illegal aliens, and felons can vote (some multiple times, no doubt), who can’t? Can a Russian or Chinese citizen vote here? If you vote their “prescribed” way, probably. Do we need voter ID’s. Absolutely! How do politicians routinely steal from all of us, promising benefits for illegal aliens, while their constituencies wade through the mess of filth to a job that forces more taxes from them, only to see more of the same. Do we need the United Nations to continually undermine United States’ and Israel’s sovereignty? They are a total scam that we primarily fund. Organized theft. They are freeloaders using other people’s money (ours). Yes, it matters.

Honesty

Does honesty matter? If your friend lies to you, is it alright? Do you just accept the fact that elected officials will probably always lie to you? Do you think we should just “go along to get along”? Should we keep supporting media steeped in socialist bias? Maybe we should just hold everyone accountable. What a concept-fairness! Yes, it matters.

Free Speech

Does free speech matter? Do all opinions deserve to be heard? Should people be prevented from having thoughts as well as the right to air them? Will we have red flag free speech laws? We have unspoken ones now. Ask Christian or conservative YouTubers who have been jerked around or silenced what they think? Trust me, they’ll be coming for you , too, when your usefulness has expired. Yes, it matters.

Why Does It Matter?

Why does it matter? If you want the government dictating all things in your life, it won’t. Most of us, however, want our life decisions made individually, not collectively. We are unique, after all. “One size fits all” never works, that’s why socialism/communism never works. If you care about what kind of world you pass down to your children, it has to matter.

Why Do I Care?

Why do I care? I’m a composer/writer/producer. Why does it matter? I’m not Republican or Democrat. All I ask myself when voting is “How much personal freedom do I have with this candidate?”. That’s it. If I can’t express myself freely as an artist, I can’t properly do my work. Our country was built on personal responsibility- freedom to succeed as well as to fail. When man tries to put Government on par to God, he answers to no higher ideals than his own, thus failing miserably in the end. Look where we are today… How’s it working out? Of course, it all matters!

Free Speech-Part 3, Winter Soldier Video

Ending Attacks on Free Speech

After years of watching Socialists, Communists, Fascists, etc. completely stifle free speech and free thought in schools and media, we finally have a President who is ending attacks on free speech. College campuses especially are no longer places for lively debate. If you are white, conservative, Christian, over 50, you have no platform to speak. I won’t be subjected to the violence others spew on social media while people with my point of view are racist, haters, etc. Talk about bullies! This blog contains Part 2 of my ongoing narrative about free speech.

President Trump At CPAC 2019

President Donald Trump at CPAC March 2, 2019 said:

“We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and dangerous ideas. These ideas are dangerous,” Trump said. “Instead we believe in free speech, including online and including on campus.

“Today I’m proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research grants….”

“If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like Hayden (Hayden Williams, the young conservative assaulted recently at UC Berkley) and many other great young people and old people to speak. Free speech. If they don’t, it will be very costly.”

I will no longer be silent about my thoughts on President Trump. He will fight for my right for free speech. That’s why I love America and I will die for that right. There will no longer be a doubt who I support from now on. I support President Trump because he has clearly shown me that I as an individual, my right for free speech is as important to him as it is to me. Call us racists?-NO!-LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!! DO THE RESEARCH!!!

Just the Start

This is just the start. We are in the midst of a great awakening. People are starting to see what’s going on and they are demanding changes from the people who are data-mining them, as well as the government that they fork over ever-increasing taxes to.

I’m not the only person to leave the big search engine and social media. We won’t be back unless and until the playing field is leveled. As far as government is concerned-TERM LIMITS!

Say what you will, but so will I. I support individual freedom, not violent mobs. I stand with President Trump. That’s my choice. God Bless America!

Winter Soldier Video

I wrote a couple of earlier blogs about constructing my composition, now it’s time to produce and release my “Winter Soldier” video.

First, lets go back to where we left off. I had the lyrics and worked out the vocals. Then, I recorded them, along with some guitar- a little rhythm and some slide run through my Amplitube 4 plugin. Next, I mixed down to a 24-bit master wav file.

I took the finished file and dropped it into my Filmora Pro video editing software. I started making videos with Windows Movie Maker, but soon learned about Wondershare Filmora which I now use because of it’s great value and features.

Lastly, I get my videos from Storyblocks Video, there again, for quality and value. I string them together, add some effects, render, and upload to my Vimeo channel. Here is the final video:

From here, I will then release the 9 minute single of “Winter Soldier” on DistroKid.

On to the next project!
