You may be right, I may be wrong , but it may just be a maniac you're looking for.
Trump to solve water pressure problem.
Sounds allot like Benito Mussolini promising to get the trains to run on time.
I tried ,but couldn't get there.
I listened to a few other pieces with the same result.
I like more grit in my music.
I'm thinking "The Prisoner"
Remarkable, and yes scary.
There is a an episode of Criminal Minds in these lyrics.
I see this as predecessor to Stop Making Sense, @1984, particularly Once In A lifetime
At first reading, I thought it was the Onion
Your point is well made.
Actually that is what we believed our majority vote meant.
The rules changed when Team Trump realized the implicatio
Fauci for President
See my earlier post re McConnell " I'm 100% not impartial"
Trial a sham
Do they have Gray Poupon ?
With pride mixed with a little arrogance, I can happily say I have never heard or heard of any of the songs.
I have heard of some of the artists
In the category of music that doesn't suck, at a Christmas party I heard a Christmas Trap.
I have certainly heard worse
Probably both, but I'll come down on the side of sarcasm.
I would say 100% sarcasm , except the issue is too serious.
Also , I wonder if Jonathon Swift had the same problem
And now we have a Far Left Evangelical movement.
No more need be said
I am confident that neither of us believe KavanaUGH should be a Supreme Court Judge.
However, we get to that conclusion via different routes.
If I interpret your comments correctly, you are opposed to him because of his judicial philosophies and
his politics; a legitimate position
However carried to an extreme such thinking would result in a Court of likeminded individuals
(I must admit we do seem to be headed in that direction)
I do not believe unanimity of thought was what the Founding Fathers intended
At least that is how I read The Federalists.
My opposition to K,( I kind of like your Kafkaesque reference), is based on the man's temperament
and his ability to control his emotions, particularly at times of stress.
I'll admit to naivete, but I am more willing to accept someone with whom I disagree than
someone who has demonstrated the ability to lose it.
O.K. I'm guessing is completely unrelated, but you sent me looking for Ruby Ruby by Dion and
Couldn't find the Drifters original, and have no interest in the Beach Boys version.
Also , if I see that woman waving for a cab. I'm stopping!
I had not heard this in a very long time.
You are correct, the words still matter.
I don't know the solution to our immigration problems.
I know it is not a wall or a process whereby Immigation Judges allow people
attempting to follow the rules to languish.
Many of my Republican friends told me the Dreamer crisis would be solved if the Democrats
separated Dreamers from funding the government.
The Democrats folded, the issue remains.
The lyrics are meaningful today.
Much too much to unpack quickly.
A couple of kneejerk comments.
After the election Jeanne shared an article which if memory serves came from The New Yorker.
It offered many reasons to explain the election result.
One of the reasons resonated; the Democratic Party had "overlooked" rural America, concentrating on the urban elites.
This article identifies the Law and Justice acolytes as being well educated and neither rural or poor.
The quote fro Hannah Arendt, 1940 ???, rattled me the most.
I'm reminded of a quote from Santayana, about those who refuse to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it. I always thought, hoped, this was relevant.
Reading the words of the Greek professor re the circularity of political systems makes me wonder.
Finally, I can't ignore the similarity of Black PR and Fake News.
It is hard to believe but Trump's statements and sel serving lies

Where is the outrage?
Where are Ryan and McConnell?
Why is the only damning commentary coming from Jeff Flake, a self imposed lame duck Republican senator ?
Labeling Democrats who chose not to support his narcissism as treasonous and un- American
has moved our government and country closer to the worlds phony " democracies " we claim to loathe.
It cannot and should not be categorized as "another Trumpism".
Repeated comments and actions which undermine our institutions have a cumulative effect.
" Say it often enough and loud enough a, people start to believe it"
The shithole comments are all but forgotten.
This latest assault mus be answered.
Allie Reynolds, a member of the Creek Nation, pitched for Cleveland before coming to the Yankees.
Reynolds was nicknamed " Big Chief".
Jim Thorpe, a member of the Sac and Fox tribe, distinguished himself playing for the Carlisle Indians,
prior to his Olympic and professional football and baseball career.
To the best of my knowledge, neither objected to playing for the " Indians"
The Day The Earth Stood Still.
Klaatu barada Nickto,
Donald Trump is the ultimate three cars monte player.
His ability to masterfully hide the Queen, keeps both political parties, the Country,
and all us citizens guessing and off balance.
To date his strategy has been "successful"
