Some stupid (JismTwitterCrap linked)...

Waylon, Hank and any other decent song writer would pound some sense into Willy if they could.

The left may or may not get power but if they keep at it, the Civil War will look like a game of checkers
compared to what is coming their way.

I don't look to doper musicians for political wisdom, but when you're DU-DUmb I guess they can seem smart when they say what you wanted to hear. For my part, to the degree Hollyweird and the music industry hate Trump, I see that as an endorsement.
Facts don't matter to DUpipo

Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

One of my favorite quotes from Alice Cooper
Quote
I call it treason against rock 'n' roll because rock is the antithesis of politics. Rock should never be in bed with politics. ... When I was a kid and my parents started talking about politics, I'd run to my room and put on the Rolling Stones as loud as I could. So when I see all these rock stars up there talking politics, it makes me sick. .... If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.

https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Alice_Cooper
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.
Blaise Pascal

Professional musicians are amazing at what they do, but usually are as Cooper said when it comes to things like finances and contracts. Aretha Franklin dying intestate would be the latest - but far from unique - example of this. The only musician I can think of who did really well off-stage was Lawrence Welk, who did well in real estate.
