Fallon takes over “The Tonight Show” Feb. 17

Jimmy Fallon hosted his final “Late Night” Friday, and he brought the Muppets on-stage for a proper send-off. Fallon, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the crew sang a scratchy rendition of “The Weight,” The Band song widely considered one of the greatest in rock history.

Fallon has set himself apart as a talk show host with his affinity for live music, recruiting The Roots as his in-house band and performing on his own as well. He played the drums in this final jamboree, the same instrument as Questlove, The Roots’ leader.

While many pretend they know what they are doing on-stage with a guitar in tow, Fallon’s skill and enthusiasm have drawn praise from many of his musical guests. The recent Vanity Fair cover story on his new gig featured an interview with the highest authority in the land, Sir Paul McCartney.

    Bill
    Clinton said this economy could not be fixed in 4 years giving Obama a pass.
    Wrong. A liberal could not fix it in 2 centuries, I could fix it 2 days or 2
    weeks, give or take.

    To get this country back at 3-5% growth rate and 5% unemployment rate, it is
    real simple. We need to:

    1.
    Cut
    taxes, possibly move to a flat tax (18%) or a more simpler tax code

    2.
    Reform
    and gut the IRS

    3.
    Dump
    Sarbanes Oxley

    4.
    Dump
    Dodd/Frank bill

    5.
    Dump
    Obamacare (allow for more competition and pass a tort reform bill)

    6.
    Reform
    health care

    7.
    Reform
    social security (increase age in states and stop at age 72) and bolster social
    security (make sure it is not about to run out of money)

    8.
    Undermine
    the EPA which is just killing jobs and economic activity

    9.
    Undermine
    the Dept. of Energy and Interior (new leadership)

    10.
    Drill
    off shore, open more lands for non-wasted use, become energy efficient

    11.
    Pass
    the Keystone pipeline bill

    Miscellaneous:

    12.
    Build
    the wall along our Southern Border

    13.
    Confront
    Iran and Russia over Iranian nuclear sites (take out Iran’s leadership)

    14.
    Get
    almost all of our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan (help Afghanistan develop
    that tritium deposit and keep hundreds of drones flying over Afghanistan and
    Iraq too)

    15.
    Get
    troops out of Germany and Italy and everywhere else they do not need them to be
    and have them live and train on American soil

    16.
    Make
    South Korea to pay us to keep our troops there

    17.
    Make
    Japan pay us to keep our troops there (or ask China to pay us to keep our
    troops there) ; Bolster position in Hawaii

    18.
    Lower
    all federal wages across the board, cut benefits and pensions for all federal
    employees

    Is Barnie Frank really
    going to get away with destroying Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and devastating
    the housing sector? I guess so.

    America
    pipes natural gas and fuel all over the country. We should do the same with
    water. When one state or region is loaded with water we should be able to pump
    billions of gallons of water to another part of the country.

    This
    would cost billions of dollars but it would be a serious infrastructure
    improvement for all of America. We could afford it if we did not waste billions
    of dollars on socialized healthcare, a broken tax code, wasteful spending,
    protecting the liberals in Europe while our troops provide their businesses
    with jobs, hamstringing our energy sector, unending unemployment payments, and
    fake science such as Solyndra.
