Hank Williams Jr. at Iowa State Fair: We've got a Muslim President who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him! | National News

MEMPHIS (IFS)  -- I love the freedom of speech.  And with it comes the wisdom and the curse of a double edged sword.  It cuts both ways.  Mr. Williams, man I love your music, but your daddy was right, you are a Boethius, and you are running head long into a brick wall at 100 miles per hour.  At this speed and the short distance with no brakes, you are going to die my friend.  Please take your foot off the gas, and at least open the door and bail out onto the grass.  Why are you committing artist suicide again? Man I love you, but you are over the top.--KHS

Hank Williams Jr. at Iowa State Fair: We've got a Muslim President who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him! | National News: “

() -- Nearly a year after country music singer Hank Williams Jr. courted controversy by comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler, he’s unleashed more fiery criticism, this time calling the president an anti-American Muslim.
Williams’ comment came near the end of a concert Friday night at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand, the Des Moines Register reported.
“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!” Williams said, according to the newspaper.
The comments reportedly went over well with the crowd, which responded with “loud and enthusiastic” cheers.
Williams appeared on “Fox & Friends” in October 2011 and said House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Obama playing golf together was “like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.”
His remarks resulted in ESPN yanking his longtime song from “Monday Night Football.” Williams subsequently released a song titled “Keep the Change” that hit back at the “United Socialist States of America.”
He called out the president again in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in July, saying, “You know, we’ve got a president that does a call to the Koran or Mecca or whatever.”

Russia’s all girl punk band PUSSY RIOT gets 2 years in prison

Russia’s all girl punk band PUSSY RIOT gets 2 years in prison
By Kenny Smith, IFS News Writer

MEMPHIS (IFS) – Russia’s all girl punk band PUSSY RIOT gets 2 years in prison for singing on the steps of a church and protesting President Putin’s rule of law in his attempt to put a lid on free speech. 

The charges of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred”, (also know in America as a “hate crime).  Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22; Marina Alyokhina, 24; and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30, were arrested for storming the steps of Moscow’s largest Orthodox cathedral back in February and singing an anti-Putin protest song against the government.

Pussy Riot donned ski-masks and bright-colored spandex while performing a “punk prayer song” during a noisy protest against President Putin who has close ties to the church. 

This clearly demonstrates Putin’s stand on protests from anyone who opposes his government.  The music industry is totally outraged at the actions of Moscow and requests the immediate release of these Russian musical pioneers.

This sends a shot in the dark message to other music icons in Russia, that they better be on their best behavior and only sing songs of the “motherland” that only will be pleasing to the president.  Only in the early days on Woody Guthrie in America in the 1930’s and Bob Marley before this death in the 1980’s that anyone would get in trouble for “singing songs”.

So the “good ole” Russian boys who like drinking their vodka and singing praises of the president will one day be in for a shocking retaliation at the ballet box in months to come.  It’s two things that governments should not do with their citizens, one is playing with their religions and the other is messing with their music.  It’s the only free thing that anyone person can do in their silence minds, “a song and a pray” that’s straight from the heart. 

You attack that simple form of freedom and the house of cards do come tumbling down.   It has been demonstrated again and again in history of man, no matter what country you are from.  It’s a government’s Achilles’ heel.

In honor of the trios self sacrifice at the hands of the “church/government” that Putin so loves, he has promised to make a Martyr out of three girls whose music is not really that much of a protest in accordance to western standards, but it will sell millions of downloads just because of what they are doing. 

KDTN Radio One’s music station will be one of those supporters of the Pussy Riot’s music and will play their music until they are released from prison.  On the KDTN Radio One’s site, you can click on the “buy now” icon that will send you to for the download.

Is Romney Ryan's Hope or Just Buying a record?

MEMPHIS (IFS) - Governor Romney's pick of  Rep. Paul Ryan, (R-Wis.), newly announced Republican vice presidential running mate could be Romney's last hope to dislodge Obama from the White house in November.  It was said that Ryan was almost a professional skier.  I attempted skiing back in the day at Antelope Valley College, in Lancaster, CA. as a kid hanging out with the girls.  To be honest, I liked the downhill runs, it was fast and easy getting back to the lodge and the fireplace.  Dislodging Obama with a downhill run is not going to do it.  Many on the policies that Obama endorsed were written by Ryan.  This is going to be a good one.  Finally a race to the end with Ryan trying to defend his record and Romney try to maintain Ryan's record that Romney wants to make it his own.  Do You get that?  You just buy a record that you want, make the guy the VP and you stand on his record and claim it as your record that you are trying to promote.  It makes dollars and "scents" to me, I think?

Memphis 911 - CALL 901-545-2677 for Police Services

Memphis (IFS) - There is no Memphis 911 emergency telephone services.  If you call 911 you get an operator about three minutes later, then they ask you "do you need an Ambulance or fire department?"  If your answer is none of the above, they hang up.

Memphis 911 - CALL 901-545-2677 for Police Services.

They answer the telephone on the first two rings and where to direct your call.  Very fast.  On my GPS unit it gives me eight locations for the Memphis police department; all of the telephone numbers are disconnected.  It took me over thrity minutes to get a live operator and a police officer to my location.  This is very sad.
