Congrats To Bowling Green, Ky.'s Own "Cage The Elephant" For Their "Best Rock Album" Grammy-"Tell Me I'm Pretty."

     I think there's a lot of people in Bowling Green right now who are extremely proud of our internationally known alternative rock sensations, "Cage The Elephant." Bowling Green has a big interest in their claim to fame! And we have been for a long time ever since their first album came out with their first hit song, "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked."

     And now we are even proud of these young rockers with their latest and incredible accomplishment by winning a Grammy Sunday night for "Best Rock Album!" It's for their new album, "Tell Me I'm Pretty." These boys continue to be on a winning streak and I'm glad I got to know them through my son, Tony Smith of the now defunct Bowling Green alternative rock band, "Sleeper Agent." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleeper_Agent_(band)
       Originally,  brothers, Matt and Brad Shultz were instrumental in helping Sleeper Agent get their start in the business by introducing them to their connections and Sleeper Agent even toured with Cage The Elephant for a while several years ago.  Matt also directed one of 
Sleeper Agent's videos for  "Get Burned."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Qz0m5IYh10  I also know CTE drummer, Jared Champion's parents, Bill and Debbie Champion of Bowling Green.  They are super nice people! We go way back through some local church connections. I know they are proud of their son as well as all of the other parents and friends are of their sons in the band too.
    Anyway, again, all of us in Bowling Green are super proud of these fine musicians and for helping put Bowling Green on the map in the world of popular music and especially for keeping us in the international spotlight whether it be for GM, home of the Corvette, the giant sinkhole underneath the National Corvette Museum, Western Kentucky University or the Bowling Green Massacre. Again, congrats boys!

Liberal Democrats Are Making The "Bowling Green Massacre" One Big Joke And Taking It To The Bank

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. _  We have made world-wide news again.

    The last time this happened was a couple years ago when a giant sinkhole collapsed underneath the dome at the National Corvette Museum in our city where it swallowed several Corvettes, the General Motors expensive American made sports car.

    But this time it was something that United States President Trump adviser, Kellyanne Conway said in an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews this past Thursday night that got the world's attention.

“I bet it’s brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered," Conway said.

Conway said she meant to say Bowling Green "terrorists," not "massacre," in a Tweet yesterday with a link to a ABC News story from 2013. It references two Iraqi citizens who were arrested in Bowling Green in 2011 and sentenced to prison for trying to send money and weapons to al-Qaeda.  Meanwhile on Friday, millions of people including liberal Democrats in the United States and across the world were having fun with her mistake and making one big joke out of it on Facebook and Twitter. They have taken this one to the bank especially the liberal Democrats in our city.  I noticed this morning that even a Wikipedia entry has already been created about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowling_Green_massacre
   
But I have to defend Kellyanne Conway. If all else fails for liberal Democrats, they grasp for the slightest, most insignificant thing they can find (like Kellyanne's failure to better prepare herself for an interview by not checking the facts properly or the fact that she misspoke) with the Trump administration and to try to make one big, humongous joke or mockery out of it. It's because they have nothing else on us and they know us conservative Republicans are right regardless.
