A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

The Day the Music Died...

 At the risk of sounding like a cranky old man standing on his lawn with a shotgun, I must vehemently oppose the sheer plethora of stale pop songs which emphasize vocal effects and borrowed dance moves rather than legitimate talent and unique chord progressions.

And I'm not saying all pop stars are guilty of this. Sure, they all have the tendency to 'sample' music and rap on par with a kindergartner's rhyming skills, yet they also surprise us with their ability to compose original melodic beats and piano compositions (I'm looking at you, Lady Gaga!). Even before she truly made it, she was performing for packed crowds in New York city as jaws dropped and carpets were subsequently shampooed.

Before donning outlandish wigs and obscene costumes, a young woman's dreams were to entertain audience
s with her stunning vocals and dazzling diano displays.

So where did it all go wrong? Of course, celebrities face immense pressure from record execs and photographers to sell an image that can rake in as much revenue as possible. The anxiety this causes often leads to substance abuse and lost innocence. Beyond that, Ms. Germanotta has recently struggled with attempts to eschew her flamboyant attire in favor of more conservative clothing -- the likes of which she'd worn as a burgeoning performer beneath sparkling New York stage lights.

The singer herself has admitted to dealing with psychological issues which have been torturous to overcome. Yet once again, she's summoned upon those inner reserves of strength and wowed her fans with a glimpse of that young hopeful woman who sat in front of a piano so long ago as hopes and dreams drove her forward towards seemingly unattainable goals which would one day bathe her in stardom and metamorphosize that young woman into the stage presence we all know today.
