Kid Rock Might Be Running For U.S. Senate Because Everything Is Terrible

first_imgOh boy! I wonder what his major announcement will be! Surely, it’s not that he plans to run for U.S. Senate!However, the bid is not officially confirmed, and there are two reasons to be skeptical. 1) Kid Rock is a known flip-flopper. In 1998, the musician declared “I wanna be a cowboy,” though we have yet to see any evidence that he actually accomplished this goal after nearly two decades, and 2) As Consequence of Sound notes, “While Richie has expressed an interest in politics, it’s entirely possible, and likely probable, he’s not actually running for office. His campaign’s webstore is hosted on Warner Bros.’s website, suggesting the rocker is parlaying recent speculation into a marketing opportunity for a new music project.”If Rock is serious about running for Michigan’s Senate, he’d be up against incumbent Debbie Stabenow (D), as Kid Rock, though he identifies as a “Libertarian” (a.k.a. a Republican who likes to smoke pot), is a big supporter of Donald Trump. In the past, Rock has previously campaigned for the 45th president, sold merchandise for him, visited him in the White House, and generally just won’t hop off his dick. Ironically, if Kid Rock were to run for office, he may have to face-off against his good buddy, Ted Nugent, who is also considering running for office, because the bar for political standards is literally flush with the ground.[H/T Consequence of Sound] A few moments later, Kid Rock then posted this cryptic follow-up: Ah, yes, Kid Rock. What do you think when you hear the name? Do you think of the genius musician who heavily sampled the iconic “Sweet Home Alabama” in his song about growing up in Northern Michigan, or the genius lyricist who, in the very same song, rhymed the word “things” with “things,” making for an actually 100% perfect rhyme? #legendaryMaybe, your first instinct when you hear the name of the musician who penned such classics as “Cucci Galore” and “Bawitdaba”—the latter of which is mostly filled with incoherent babbling in between rants on the IRS and references to “porno flicks”—is, “Get that man into political office ASAP!” If you fall into this category, then buckle up, because you’re about to have a great day. Today, Robert Ritchie, the actual name of the celebrated and beloved musician that is Kid Rock, more or less announced that he would be running for U.S. Senate.A website for Kid Rock’s apparent senatorial run,  www.kidrockforsenate.com, went live today, which, I shit you not, only features a picture of Kid Rock next to a taxidermied deer, the lone phrase “ARE YOU SCARED?”, a link to a gift shop with predictably horribly rendered gear, and a poorly designed GIF that alternates between phrases like “PIMP OF THE NATION,” “BORN FREE,” and “IN ROCK WE TRUST.” Inexplicably, the GIF also features the phrases “PARTY TO THE PEOPLE,” “WELCOME TO THE PARTY,” and “I’LL ROCK THE PARTY” back to back, just to really hammer home Rock’s affinity toward both political parties and drinking-a-bottle-of-Southern-Comfort-and-waking-up-in-your-neighbor’s-bushes-naked parties.Clearly, the outpour about this new website got back to Kid Rock, as he then went to post on Twitter this:last_img read more

Rent cuts put landlords at risk

first_img REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella. Photo: Claudia BaxterREIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said it was their understanding that private arrangements made between landlords and tenants would impact insurance.“Each policy will differ but as a general rule, Landlord Insurance will not respond where landlords have reached a mutual agreement with a tenant about rent reduction,” she said in a live Facebook briefing.Furthermore, the moratorium effectively prevents landlords from meeting policy obligations to mitigate their loss by issuing default notices.“As we understand it, the process of issuing that default documentation can’t occur where the rent default is happening as a result of the coronavirus,” Ms Mercorella said.“I know that’s probably not the information that landlord’s want to hear, but it’s important we provide what we believe is accurate information.”That advice was confirmed by AON Australia, providers of CGU Landlord Insurance products, who today offered clarification for property managers on COVID-19 issues.AON confirmed rent default can be claimed for tenants unable to pay due to COVID-19, but not the shortfall where a reduction is agreed between a landlord and a tenant.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa8 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago“No, the different in weekly rent is not claimable as this is a mutual agreement between the landlord and tenant,” AON advised.In cases where the landlord and tenant mutually agree to suspend rent, the landlord is unable to claim for rent default under insurance.AON also advised that as of 5pm on Friday, 3 April CGU will not be offering ‘Rent default and theft by tenant’ cover on new policies, however that cover continues on existing policies.
