The Republican Party has been funneling money from foreign anti-Democratic regimes and "investors" into the nation's political processes for decades. The money is, and has been, used to buy "absolute power" domestically for the Republican Party; and influence and control in American politics for enemies of democracy.
There have to be limits on power. If there are none, then evil men and women will use fear, brute force, and nationalism to enslave us.
Trump has quadrillioned down on his lie that Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian, showing that the more Dorian blew, the more Trump sucks. So this weekend's theme is for songs about states and cities in the U.S...even if they haven't been needlessly panicked yet by the BSer who cried wolf.
So this weekend's music theme is inspired by the recent Democratic debates, songs about personal stories, identity, issues, agreements and disagreements.

When Joe Biden was asked whether he supports marijuana legalization, he weaseled out and said that he didn't know whether or not Herb leads to heroin addiction. He wouldn't answer the question as to how it will ever be possible to answer that question if research is not allowed.
Barr claims that because of an unreviewed internal department memo, no President can be prosecuted for any crime but fails to offer a suggestion about how to "interfere" with a pattern of criminality that embeds itself and cyclically worsens.
Betsy doesn't really give a damn about our children or their education. The only thing that she cares about is anti-Democratic politics, and dismantling the Constitution. More than any other cause, I truly believe that Betsy Devos is the problem; she and all the others who put politics before everything including children's education.
