Woo-Hoo!! You get “Hotel California” again. ‘Prisoners of our own device’…right?
The Eagles “Hotel California” 1976 Live
From The Daily Caller, “VICTOR DAVIS HANSON TELLS TUCKER WHY CALIFORNIA IS ‘AMERICA’S FIRST THIRD-WORLD STATE’.”
Responding to host Tucker Carlson’s question about why he considers California a “Third World state,” Hanson pointed to “symptoms” we typically “associate with failed states” such as high taxes, poor schools, a super-rich class, and a significant percentage of its people below the poverty line.
“We have the most billionaires of any state in nation and then we have the largest underclass,” he said, blaming in part the overturning of the “very popular” Proposition 187, which would have denied non-emergency healthcare to illegal immigrants.
“That was unfortunately part of a perfect storm,” said Hanson, describing the millions of people who chose to move elsewhere over the next two decades.
“Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
‘Relax’ said the night man,
‘We are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'”
The Daily Beast reports, “She Posted a Bad Yelp Review. Then Her Nightmare Began.”
Two weeks after she posted a blurb about a disappointing bachelorette party venue on Long Island, the cyberbullying—in the form of disturbing, harassing, sexually explicit messages—started flooding her Facebook and her wedding website.
And for the guitar solo…
“Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast”
The Eagles – “Hotel California”
**A day without hearing “Hotel California” is like a day without sunshine….
