“…where did you go Joe dDiMaggio, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
Someone said Bob Dylan’s SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK BLUES was the first rap song.
How about Don McClean’s AMERICAN PIE . Or Billy Joel’s WE DIDN’T LIGHT THE FIRE?
Where is rap? Eminem? Anyone, …Bueller? The fodder is there. Never been more cherries to pick.
- No shortage of Trump bashing books. Amy Suskind’s THE LIST capsizes all the dishonesty and absurdity in her list (throw enough stuff on the wall and some will stick). Fear-mongering in America is nothing new: Top picks : KKK, the mafia, and the IRS. Watergate Bob Woodard entitles his book FEAR, highlighting Trump’s proclamation of its effectiveness.
- Hey, hey hey. FDR (“we have nothing to fear, but fear itself.”)
- David Halberstam’s book , THE CHILDREN, cites the courage of the young Nashville college students who led the civil rights protest’s beginning . Led by Diane Nash, James Bevel, Marion Barry and others–the group had to take these fearful actions before their children were born. They saw the chilling effect of fear on their elders, when threats to children and grandchildren were common.
Has there ever been a greater need for young Americans to screw up their courage and to tell the would be emperor he not only is naked, but also stripped of fear?
PS vote until the fox is out of the henhouse. Vote only for those who will (1) vote for some form of terms limits and (2) agree to be publicly hung if they renege once elected..
With apologies :
Trump is in the Whitehouse,
nation’s in the crap-house.
Manafort, Roger Stone and Cohen,
Off to the jailhouse, they’ll be going.
Wall in China, grab vaginas
Stoopid rednecks in Carolinas.
Shut down, shut up, plan unravels,
Oops, Nancy has the gavel.
I couldn’t vote for Donald,
You couldn’t vote for Hilary.
Now we’d both would vote for daffy duck,
How much worse could it be?
Tax evasion, New York past.
Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity,
What a cast.
Rude, crude, tolerate insanity,
How much longer will you let it be?
No dog for Trump, dogs won’t take him
McCain is a loser? What a thing to shout.
Military expertise?, prep school academies!
Vietnam, heel corns, gotta use my daddy’s clout
GOP–no more hiding. Right and wrong are colliding.
On the fence? Vote like Pence?
Come on man, use your sense
Iraq I didn’t, Iraq I did,
Tweets and flip-flops, spell like a kid.
Blame Obamas, but give her speech,
First lady, out of reach.
See no heroes, neither saints,
Sent poor ‘W”off to paint.
“W” got it right once. This is it:
Trumps’s inauguration: “…ain’t that some weird shit”
