Memorial Day, a time to remember and thank the veterans who risked life and limb to keep uphold our liberties. Post songs about wars and better yet, the ending of those wars. Songs about remembrance, songs about peace and songs about America.
AdLib : Night! funksands : Night buddy. Take care. AdLib : Good, very glad it worked out and not surprised you had a thoughtful fallback position. funksands : Oh, yes we pretty much got everything we wanted. If they are going to make him go back we had a strategy […]
I’m a Little Teabagger – by Ted Cruz: “I’m a little teabagger, short and stout, Here is my handle, here is my spout. When I get all steamed up hear me shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.”
This weekend’s music thread is all about the soothing power of music. Post your favorite instrumentals, Trumpets, Drums, Pianos, Saxaphones, Flutes, Clarinets, Harps, Harmonicas…..any style, era or genre.
AdLib is online. SallyT : Good night! choicelady : Good night! SallyT : You have as much of a relaxing weekend that you can and I will see you when you get to the funnies! choicelady : Well, dear Sally – I have to go back to work tomorrow to […]
Last night I had a dream of a beautiful dusk landscape, I dreamt I was as light as the ether, a floating spirit visiting things to come. The shades and shadows of my life wrestled their way into my slumber… I dreamt that Dick and George decided to turn themselves […]
After a somewhat dark week in the news, I thought I’d make this weekend’s music thread a little on the lighter side of life. It’s about the combination of video and music, sort of like an early version of MTV. It’s about your favorite, most creative music videos. Choose any […]
AdLib : Sleep well, CL! Once again, you’ve earned that and a long vacation on a beach somewhere sipping drinks with umbrellas in them! Night! choicelady : OK dear friend – I’m packing it in. The siren call of sleep is too overwhelming to ignore! Have a lovely weekend, […]
It was a no-brainer (or as known in Republican circles, a “Gohmert”) for Republicans to vote against background checks, an assault weapons ban and a gun magazine limit. And it was just as easy for them to be “outraged” by the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. Only If deaths help them politically, do they matter.
Are there really that many happy meals missing french fries? Judging by the look of the GOP, the NRA and producers of rifles for children, I really think so. So this weekend’s music thread is about crazy people, lunatics and just plain mayhem.
MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib = still here? AdLib : Glad you’re feeling better, CL! Vox is recommended by 9 out of 10 doctors! See you next week, sleep well and best to hubby! choicelady : AdLib – thank you! I think so, too! Well, I will let you go. I […]
The enemy is small but incredibly powerful, they mount assaults all across the globe on people everywhere but are like terror cells, operating independently but driven by the same philosophies and practicing the same ruthlessness. The enemy is both foreign and domestic and has more destructive power than any army.
This weekend’s music thread is about travel, by air, sea, or land. By plane train or automobile (or cars and trucks). It is about movement, getaways, sort of like Congress trying to get away from furloughed air traffic controllers and the unforeseen inconvenience of their travel plans. It’s amazing how […]
AdLib : Sally, always appreciate the heads up on Maher! Thanks and sleep well! SallyT : See you later. SallyT : You do the same and just catch the New Rules on Real Time. That is the best of it. AdLib : Sally, great closing the Vox Pop Bar with […]
“I realize the tragic significance of the atomic bomb… It is an awful responsibility which has come to us… We thank God that it has come to us, instead of to our enemies; and we pray that He may guide us to use it in His ways and for His purposes”.
President Harry Truman, August 9, 1945
They literally wrap themselves in flags (at least flag pins) but if you were to make a checklist of all of America’s founding and ongoing principles, as a democracy and society, you’d find a substantial Republican checklist of things they despise.
