Myles Kennedy is confused

Post by jailman »

Myles Kennedy wanted a leader, it was the theme of The Last Hero.

Well 2 months after the album was released, he got one: President Trump.

But Myles is still not happy. So maybe he really doesn't know what he wants.

Well, while writing the album, AB already knew it was going to be either Hilary or Trump as president and neither choices were really great choices that everyone can agree on.

The whole theme about The Last Hero isn't really wanting just a leader. It is wanting someone that everyone can rally behind and get excited about and that everyone knows that person can go out there and do great things in their community, state, country, whatever. The main focus really is are there people like that left in this world in this age after seeing public reactions to the polarizing US election of 2016? We are not sure, that's the scary part. That's how I perceive the theme at least.

I personally hated all this "Where is the Saviour?" pathos of TLH. This notion that there is Someone who will come one day and make things right is just stupid, naive and even infantile.

Literally everybody has been in a constant confused state of mind since Trump became president. Especially his own fans.

Prolly wanted someone that isn't an alleged felon. He's a picky man, is Myles.

Do You mean that even Trump's fans realized that he is a lunatic?

This is a good point. I personally dislike the politically charged lyrics of the album myself. I can't emotionally connect with them like the previous records. Granted not all the songs are politically charged and those are the ones I like.

I guess nobody here except for me voted for Trump then? lol. I think the people who didn't vote for trump are in a way worse mental state than the ones that did. Ever heard of Trump derangement syndrome? Go watch a couple videos of the terrorist group Antifa.

I won't say I'm not disappointed in him, I am, but only because he's not further to the right and not using his power of the presidency to the fullest. For example, instead of focusing on healthcare early in his presidency he should've spent all that time on getting the wall built.

Let's not make any assumptions of people's mental state based on who they voted for. It never really leads to anywhere that creates pleasant discussions.

That's funny. But just go watch some videos of people reacting to Trump being elected and you'll see what I'm talking about. You'll see people screaming like the world is ending. Two years in and the world is still going and is no worse off than how Obama left it. If people think Trump is really that bad than compare him to truly some of the worst presidents throughout American history, many of them didn't even last two years.

I’m not arguing anything! If I’ve learned anything from Facebook, it’s that arguing politics online is pointless.

At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if Trump got re-elected.

He will. Quote me on this and in two years if I'm wrong I'll admit it. But I think he will get a second term. There simply isn't another viable option in either party for the current political climate.

Saying Trump is a leader is like telling a retarded child that he's smart. You want to be nice because you know he'll believe you, but deep down, you know the truth.

The only difference is that the retarded kid has a normal skin tone and doesn't pee on hookers.
