Op-Ed: Top 10 Chart-Topping Country Music Singles Of 2013



” 2013 was a great year for the following singles, especially since they all topped the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts. Here are my picks of the 10 best of the year. To be fair, each country artist is represented only once.

At No. 10, is Justin Moore with his upbeat love song “Til My Last Day,” which was the first single to reach No. 1 on country radio in 2013. I love the traditional country side to Moore’s music and his twang.


At No. 9, is Randy Houser with his catchy and radio-friendly radio single “Runnin’ Out of Moonlight,” which is a tune that you could listen to on repeat the whole day.


Darius Rucker comes in at No. 8 with his rendition of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel,” which he made his own. Rucker brought this tune for No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts and it stayed there for two weeks in early June of 2013.”

IRS Protest St. Louis County May 21, 2013

Published on May 21, 2013

” Residents of St. Louis County met in front of the IRS offices on May 21, 2013 to protest the IRS’ practice of targeting and harassing conservatives, patriots and Tea Party supporters. There were no city or county police there, ONLY DEPT OF HOMELAND SECURITY POLICE. According to the IG report, the IRS began targeting conservative organizations, especially Tea Party groups, in Feb. 2010, (although there is much evidence that they have been targeting conservative groups and Christian groups since the 1980’s.) The IRS agents were directed to target organizations with the words “patriot” or “tea party” in the names. The power to tax is the power to destroy. This is what it is like to live in a police state tyranny. It has become evident that they are planning on using the IRS as their Gestapo.”

Forbes Lists America’s 20 ‘Most Miserable Cities’; Guess What The Vast Majority Have in Common?


Believe it or not , this is no third world slum ... This is Detroit


” Forbes just published its 20 Most Miserable Cities List for 2013. The magazine left off several obviously more “worthy” contenders, perhaps because its decisions to include and exclude certain criteria were, to say the least, more than a little odd.

I have listed the magazine’s top twenty following the jump, along with each city’s mayor and that person’s political leanings, showing a commonality the magazine’s Kurt Badenhausen failed to observe:


20. Youngstown, Ohio — Charles P. Sammarone, Democrat
19. Gary, Indiana — Karen Freeman-Wilson, Democrat
18. Poughkeepsie, New York — John C. Tkazyik, Republican
17. Cleveland, Ohio — Frank Jackson, Democrat
16. Atlanta, Georgia — Kasim Reed, Democrat
15. Atlantic City, New Jersey — Lorenzo Langford, Democrat
14. Milwaukee, Wisconsin — Tom Barrett, Democrat
13. Camden, New Jersey — Dana Redd, Democrat
12. St. Louis, Missouri — Francis Slay, Democrat
11. Toledo, Ohio — Michael Bell, ran as an independent but is a lifelong Democrat
10. New York, New York — Michael Bloomberg, Nanny State “Independent” since 2007; Democrat before 2001; ran as a Republican in 2001 just to get a spot on the ballot.
9. Waukegan, Illinois — Robert G. Sabonjian, Democrat (see first paragraph following this list)
8. Stockton, California — Anthony Silva, a Republican sworn into office by Democrat and former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown.
7. Warren, Michigan — James Fouts, Republican
6. Vallejo, California — Osby Davis, Not determinable
5. Modesto, California — Garrad Marsh, “non-partisan,” clear Democrat sympathies
4. Chicago, Illinois — Rahm Emanuel, Democrat
3. Rockford, Illinois — Larry Morrissey, Independent
2. Flint, Michigan — Dayne Walling, “nonpartisan,” formerly worked for U.S. Rep. Dale Kildee, a Democrat
