I thought that for this weekend’s music thread it would be fun to post any example of duality with two songs in a single box that portray an opposite. We could also post a single song and have someone else post a song that portrays it’s opposite.

The disconnect between those Americans essentially supporting greater Climate Change and more frequent and terrible natural disasters that some of them dying in, is astounding. It’s like blocking a national effort to prevent the spread of Black Plague simply because Obama wants to do it (no doubt a re-definition of Black Plague to them).
It used to be that we could trust the news reporter to do the right thing. Not so today. They toe the corporate line. Twist the news stories to fit their agenda. They have all the republican candidates on and ask them soft questions and allow them to say whatever they want.
Night and day, day and night. The two ever lasting cosmological events of our lives here on the planet Earth. The complete, single revolution of the globe, as the globe itself revolves around that star of ours that gives us our days.
Hillary Clinton explained her position against taking positions as a reflection of her strength as a candidate, “Someone has to have the courage to take a stand not to take a stand!”
The republicans hurry to war but refuse to care for the veterans their war created. With that in mind, I believe that more veterans than ever are going to vote for a Democrat who is against senseless WAR! Bernie Sanders has been against all our wars since he has been a Rep. or Senator. Nearly all the GOP candidates are in favor of said wars. They even want to start another with Iran.
Should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be put to death for his monstrous crimes or spend the rest of his miserable days confined in a small cell?
To the surprise of the British Pollsters Thursday’s General Election wasn’t even close. Cameron’s Conservative (aka Tory) Party trounced Labour and saw its allied Liberal Democrats diminished even further. What does this mean for the United States’ closest ally?
Bernie has always said he is a “socialist” with a small “s”, which means he cares about all Americans. He wants everyone to have equal rights, equal chance to succeed, and equal pay for equal work. So many times I see where he is called a “communist” but he believes in democracy with a twist of socialism.
These Home-On-De-Ranged Texans believe chem trails are proof that the government is chemically mind controlling its own people, President Obama is a stealth Kenyan, Muslim, Socialist terrorist who wants to cut off their heads in the streets and every non-Texan is coming to take their guns away. These misfits from the Loon Star State thrive on paranoia.
I had the misfortune of watching Faux News yesterday in order to ascertain how the conservatives plan to defend the indefensible: The Killing of Freddie Gray. Many vicious, hateful accusations and talking points were spewed to justify the use of excessive force by police to “subdue” African-American males.
Democrats should not fear democracy as a threat, firstly because just the opposite is true and secondly because Republicans will sue them for theft of intellectual property (it’s the only use of the word “intellectual” Republicans are permitted to make).
We are running on borrowed time, folks. Every country needs to do all it can to lessen their effects on our environment.Every person should do all he or she can to cut their own carbon footprint. To speak out against polluters. To encourage others to take action. If we don’t start now our children and theirs will not enjoy the wonderful things that nature has to offer. The beauty of forests, lakes, rivers,and all the other resourses nature has given us.
There were minor injuries reported to some of the candidates. Chris Christie reportedly bruised his meatball sub, Scott Walker received minor scratches on both of his faces and Marco Rubio was uncovered at the bottom of the heap hoarsely pleading for a bottle of water.
All tv shows, movies, plays and books rely on one simple concept to be able to entertain. Their audience must willingly suspend their disbelief. We sit down in a movie theater knowing that there’s no way a human being could actually jump up into the sky and fly nor that […]
Instead of letting the GOP get away with trying to create an anti-identity based solely on what they oppose and want to repeal, it’s a good time to recognize who they really are as a party and what they truly stand for.
