Trump's goin' down! So the theme for this weekend’s music thread is law and crime, just desserts and paying a price.
To remind folks of the “wag the dog” scenario, where a president starts a bogus war to boost his re-election chances, this weekend’s music theme is about dogs that wag, cats that purr, American eagles that fly and songs about any and all animals.
This issue isn't just about whether anyone can prosecute criminal behavior by a President while in office, it's about Trump using the Office of the President to help himself politically in what may constitute dereliction of duty and treason.
Trump is a thug and a bully. He insults, mocks, belittles; and now, damns and curses anyone who disagrees with his methods. He reminds you more of a schoolyard bully that loses their nerve if you challenge them.
Everything Trump's touched lately is failing. Tariffs, negotiations with North Korea, controlling the deficit and keeping the economy growing. As his prospects for re-election keep dropping, Democrats show off a field of contenders who all look like winners against him. So this weekend's music theme is about winning and losing, playing the game and rolling the dice.
Brexiters have their own MAGA. They want the "Five Hundred Year Myth," of England; harking back to an entirely self-sufficient England that ruled the world - which never existed.
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.
This weekend's music thread is meant to keep folks on the southeast coast in mind with songs about storms, rain and all kinds of weather, bad and hopefully good.
Trump was asked if phantom armies exist: he said, "Of course not, but being non-existent and insubstantial, like my record of achievement, is a feature and not an issue. How better to fight non-existent foes than with a phantom army? We're bound to win - they're already dead!"
This weekend's music thread is a celebration of Woodstock's 50th anniversary. Whether they're songs about peace, love, war, protest or songs that are just reflective of those times, share your faves from the late 60's and early 70's.
