Steve Hall (Singer/Songwriter) debuted his new sample CD titled ‘Steve Hall—Not that Steve Hall’. The CD features two tracks, ’Can you feel it and ‘My own Dylan song’, which he hopes will afford proper respect to the folk legend himself… Mr. Dylan. Songs to follow will include ‘Trouble’, ‘Dancing too close’, ‘Morning brew’ along with several others. A ’retro’ album is also planned in the future to include some classics mixed with some retro styling's of his own.


The Pearls B4 Pigs banner is dedicated to the “useful idiots”, which is not my quote, but rather one I believe was coined by the Black Panther movement and later embraced by the Progressive (Socialist) movement in America. more at Pearls B4 Pigs webpage

Steve Hall “Not That Steve Hall”

On September 5th, 2013, Singer/Songwriter Steve Hall debuted his new sample CD titled ‘Steve Hall-Not that Steve Hall’. The CD features two tracks, ’Can you feel it ‘, in which its motivations are personal and ‘My own Dylan song’, which he hopes will afford proper respect to the folk legend himself… Mr. Dylan. Songs to follow will include ‘Trouble’, ‘Dancing too close’, ‘Morning brew’ along with several others. A ’retro’ album is also planned in the future to include some classics mixed with some retro styling's of his own.

Tunecore is the home for distribution and administration of Steve’s works, which will be split between studio recordings that include contributions by Nashville recording artists, which Steve coins as the ‘Mugicians’, and ‘Shack’ recordings recorded primarily by himself.

Political Writings


I wholeheartedly embrace


My brothers and sisters who demonstrate acceptance of themselves and all Americans to pursue happiness and contentment in life discarding the chains of racism that bind so many victims to the past.


I would also suggest that preferential bias towards those who are different than us is its own form of soft racism. We should expect the best of character and conduct from those we choose to associate with and realize that these are personality rather than physical traits.


For while there is still exists today ignorance and hatred nourished by smallness and fear that no distinction is immune to, we meaning those of us who choose trust and unity over fear elect not to include such nonsense in our spiritual diet.


What I am saying is that we need to remain diligent to defend ourselves from the fearful who have not matured through grace. We need to recognize stupidity and refuse to nourish it. But mostly, we need to seek brotherhood and embrace it as our way forward. read more



Will your vote count?


If you live in Stevens County Washington then perhaps not unless you follow up to be sure.


Some ballots have been returned to the sender because of the bar code above the sender’s name on the label. If your ballot comes back to you it may not reach the auditor’s office before the cutoff date and therefore not be counted.


How it is possible for an employee of the USPS not to realize that an obvious mail in ballot should understandably arrive at the elections office and not back in your mailbox… I don’t know but apparently that is the case in some cases.


You can find out if you have been harmed by this by checking the ‘MyVote’ page of the county elections website or contacting your auditor’s office by phone. The link and phone numbers are provided below. Your ballot should be received within two to three days.


Stevens County Auditor Election Department (509)684.7514 or 866.307.9060

Colville, WA 99114


My Vote link



It is important for all of our votes to be counted and if we want to clean up politics it is imperative for each of us to be responsible for our vote.


An uninformed choice on a ballot plays a game of chance with real world regulations. It is ok to leave a box blank if you do not know and it is actually the responsible thing to do.


There is no moral validation that your uninformed selection should take dominion over choosing not to blindly vote issues that will likely affect all of us. It’s like shooting into a crowd or choosing not to. You never know who you will hit.


We chose the government officials and regulations we have today. Many of them were chosen by chance and are effective accordingly. Vulnerable offices can be exposed by the non-votes so that those offices can be challenged and we get a better government, which means your non vote is just as important as your vote in many cases.



You cannot afford the affordable care act

You are going to need to trust someone and it should be yourself. I prefer your attention because you don’t trust me so please don’t, but admit the truth at least to yourself. Don’t be surprised if you find your story in this story.


Suppose I tell you that before your 40 hour work week was cut to twenty-five hours, your ten dollar per hour wage paid you $400.00 per week. Of that pay you received about $316.00 that you could take home. Take home pay at eight dollars per hour is about $252.00. read more



Israeli ceasefire let us be clear


Responsibility for the deaths of three Israeli soldiers at the beginning of a ceasefire originating from the pressure from US Secretary of State John Kerry in concert with the Obama administration and the United Nations must be shared by those same entities.


That’s what happens when you have politicians playing US President, US Secretary of State and UN Secretary while pretending that the real world facts of Hamas somehow exist in some alternative fantasy universe. Perhaps they should all get a trophy for participation.


Hamas is full of one-liners and all of them cry victim spew hate and reaffirm their dedication to the elimination of Israel. You can trust that part of what they say.


The Palestinian Authority who chose Hamas leadership cannot now disassociate themselves from those decisions. Rather they have to own both the association and the responsibility that comes with it.


Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu now says he is finished with ceasefires in Gaza and is no longer interested in listening to what the uninformed and illiterate heads of state and other bleeding heart external influences have to say. Sure as I breathe these influences are complicit in the deaths of the three soldiers and if you sided with them then so are you.


Any future dialog regarding a ceasefire in Gaza must be premised by a resolution that the ceasefire proposal shall first mandate that United Nations peacekeeping troops lead by US Secretary of State John Kerry will enter Gaza for the sole purpose of escorting ‘innocent’ Palestinians away from their positions as human shields to a location of adequate safety.


This will allow IDF forces to complete their tasks with minimal civilian casualties.


Of course the post amble of any such agreement should be that if any harm comes to Secretary Kerry or the UN troops while performing their duties then all bets are off… but it’s negotiable.


To be clear I am saying to the United Nations and specifically to US Secretary of State John Kerry… in the future put your lives where your mouths are. Three Israeli soldiers lost their lives because of your meddling and you should have known better.



Where to begin

With so many arguments to choose from it becomes increasingly easier to simply tune out to everything going on, or as most would say ‘going wrong’ today. But my conversation is with those of you who have chosen to tune out so far and allow your government to do the ‘right thing’ for you.


Now you have to tune out again in light of your decisions.


I’ve heard your crap.


“Those greedy rich businesses should be forced to pay more! We deserve a $15.00 per hour minimum wage!”


“The Republicans are out to ‘get’ the poor! They hate women and minorities! They are bigots who want to keep the black man down and deny us healthcare!”


“The Democrats want ‘social justice’ and ‘amnesty’ for illegal aliens. They fight for the poor and support welfare, free healthcare and ‘choice’ for women!”


Don’t forget the part about your not wanting to be reminded of how God might judge your actions… which adds God to the list of inconvenient truths. Thank God socialists in government are trying to erase the word God so you don’t have to hear about it.


Truth be told it is not God who is judging you because God has already forgiven you by grace.


Rather, it is your own conscience that condemns your thoughts and actions as you boldly declare that you are entitled as much as you are not responsible.


That really is selfish and immature narcissism.


Please tell me that deep in your heart you really are not that truly pathetic, because if you are then you should stop reading here, because my words deserve better eyes than yours.


I didn’t leave the company of Republicans because they were wrong. I left the party distinction behind for two reasons. First, Republicans don’t need to be tended and though prejudiced to their own moral values they are mostly good values. The second and most prominent reason I left is to caucus with those conservatives outside of the Republican fold. These conservatives I shall coin as the ‘Non Joiners’ or NJ conservatives.. read more



While it still is a free country for expressing concerns and ideas, I would like to know if the annexation of Crimea was what US President Obama was referring to when he told Russian President Putin and I paraphrase ‘I will have more room to move after the election’.

Is that why the official US response has been so measured?  read more
