We are now facing, for the first time in our history, three deadly and persistent enemies at once; with one being the implosion of the Economy. Combined with the pandemic, and the social crisis; we are dangerously close to collapse. And all because for thirty years we allowed extremist cultists to reduce government to factionalism. Government became so dysfunctional that it could not defend us.
This week, Trump mused about using insulin without a professional medical diagnosis, as a general preventive. Once again it has to be said, "the man will kill and kill, out of stupidity, until he is stopped!"
This has been a shocking, tragic and emotional week. So this weekend's music thread is about justice, activism, peace, compassion and unity.
Chloroquine is a rampant public health problem in India - it is yet another drug epidemic in itself. And it is poised to hit the United States; especially after the American president's endorsement by planetary dispatch.
To celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, this weekend includes songs about war and protest but also songs about life, being remembered, noble and loved.

  • Steppenwolf-Short Posts:On top of all this pain and sadness, when the country has been intentionally destabilized by politicized gangs of police and right wing extremists, Young Billy Barr vomits up the idiocy of: "outside agitators." But, shrinks away from speaking of the crime, and the investigation. Obviously there won't be any real investigation. Sessions made it policy that corrupt police departments police themselves. No federal investigation into the crime and the conspiracy have been commissioned. No indictments have been issued. The "suspect" has not been arraigned. He could be released tomorrow. The "Three" have not been arrested. The Media are burying important details. Welcome to, "Trump America." And, why oh why, Little Boy Blue, did Officer Chauvin appear to be in drug-induced psychosis? Actually, all four. "Things keep getting curiouser and curiouser." -Alice- * Oh, and: What if someone were to organize a convoy of busses, fill them with protesters, and drive them up to Minnesota? Why the fuck do I need to be from Minneapolis to be angry and heartbroken. To be allowed to speak out. And to Young Billy Barr: Shove it! And do your job, hack! Idiot!
  • dinny-Is Trump Getting Away With Murder?:Not to mention the horrendous price of insulin, or the fact that it is only legally available on prescription. And people are dying through lack of it. He seems to think that anyone can get any drug they want. I don't understand that. Is it true that the pharmaceutical industry is so messed up that a person can walk into a doctors office and just ask for whatever they want and walk out with the script? The most expensive healthcare system on earth only serves the rich.
  • dinny-Trump’s Latest Plan for the Recovery? TOTAL DENIAL!:I think that in a genuine political democracy, a person like DJT would never get elected. Mainly because the turnout would be higher, which belies the failure of U.S. democracy. (Or should I say "The great experiment?" The divided two party system is not designed to serve the electorate, but rather it seems to deny them their rights. Recently Trump complained that if everyone had a fair shot at voting, the Republican Party would never get another president elected ! In effect he actually normalized the purging ( by whatever means necessary ) of live voters. How can that circle ever be squared?
