Our veterans have made their sacrifices for the rest of us, they deserve to be honored and treated with gratitude by all Americans (and especially by the V.A.). So this weekend's music thread is dedicated to our veterans, the themes being about peace, war, compassion and respect.
When things started to fall apart for McConnell, it didn’t take long for him to have his version of Hrothgar’s “dreadful demon that ruled unrighteous and raged against all.” For Hrothgar, his dreadful was Grendel. For Mitch, his dreadful demon is named Donald J. Trump.
People have asked me why I am running. I am running because every day you endure injustice is the longest day of your life. I am running because I want to be in a position to correct these injustices.
Trump has a fundamental disrespect for the American government. The "phony" Constitution, he said. He reeks of it: a cheap gangster who hates everything that we stand for. It's the most obvious salient about Trump. He hates the United States of America.
To mark how casually humans can change time on a timely schedule, the theme for this weekend's music thread is of course, time. Seconds, hours, years, yesterday, today and tomorrow, if you've got the time, we've got the music!

  • Kalima-Short Posts:Trump's tax records can be sought by Congress, appeals court orders
  • Kalima-Short Posts:I could only watch for an hour, and the embarrassing, filled with lies, Nunes statement, the ridiculous signs and meaningless interruptions by repubs sei my hair on fire. The testimonies from both men cut the defence of trump off at the knees. Will watch the rest later on YouTube as they were streaming it live. — A new factual bombshell is revealed in first day of public impeachment hearings
  • AdLib-Short Posts:So, Day One of the public Impeachment Hearings and brand new damning evidence comes out! Sondland said Trump 'cares more' about Biden investigation than Ukraine, Taylor says Taylor testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that his staffer asked Sondland what the president thought about Ukraine after the phone call, which came a day after Trump's conversation with Zelensky, which is the focus of the impeachment inquiry. Sondland said, "President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden," than U.S. policies on Ukraine, according to Taylor.
  • AdLib-Short Posts:They got the knife by pulling it out of America’s back where Haley stabbed it.
  • AdLib-Short Posts:Haley ruined herself. She boasted that she turned down the opportunity to protect the country in order to protect her career. She is as corrupt as Trump.
  • AdLib-Short Posts:You see all these people’s uprisings happening all around the world, a reaction to the wave of authoritarians taking over or oppressing worse. Seems like that is going on to a degree in the US and building. Trump’s getting booed and protest nearly everywhere he goes and giants businesses are failing by being boycotted. I think after impeachment, if he’s not removed by the traitorous GOP Senators, it will get much worse. Trump will only be able to campaign where they can prevent most Americans from expressing their resentment of him.
  • Kalima-Short Posts:Well judging by the protests, many people don’t and he can hear it plainly now. Desperation of a guilty man whose whole life has been a sham.
  • AdLib-Short Posts:The lies are now so rudimentary Trump should just say, “This isn’t a lie about Schiff.” No sane person can believe anything he says, he’s gone over the edge.
  • Kalima-Short Posts:Apropos Haley. — Trump officials knife Nikki Haley after she paints herself as one of the president’s staunchest defenders
