Song of the Day: "Freedun"

I should have put "Paper Planes" on my Clark Memorial Playlist. I guess I still can. It's a list of songs I associate with him for one reason or another. He was very excited to tell me about that song about a year after I posted it here. He was early on a lot of things (The Band Perry, that Creed song from a few Christmas mornings ago), just not M.I.A.

I heard that this will be her final album. Or "final" album.

Possibly that means M.I.A. and she's pulling a John Cougar or Cat Stevens on us.

Possibly that means everything.

I think the former. With the possibility that she comes out of retirement in 7 years as the next likely scenario.

Happy Anniversary, Part 2

Today is also the __-year anniversary of the attack on the ________ in Benghazi which is in ______________ (a country).

Many Americans are furious about this event. You might be one of them. Are you...?
A) Disgusted at how _____________ (a person) went on Sunday morning "pundits, government officials, candidates and other people with nothing to do on a Sunday morning, and none of whom are under oath, all talking over each other" news show and lied about the events, ascribing motivations to some shitty movie on YouTube
B) Saddened by the knowledge that Hillary Clinton personally ordered NATO, the Super Friends and the Transformers all to stand down, saying "fuck them, this will never hurt my election chances, Jeb Bush won't stand a chance against me"
C) Angry that Barrack HUSSEIN Obama has never said the words _______ ________ in talking about all the terrorisms terrorizing the America
D) Just interested in accountability, possibly for the only time ever with respect to the government; hold someone responsible for the loss of ______ American lives
E) Hating anyone who insults this country by taking a knee during the ___________
F) All of the above
G) Some of the above (doesn't matter which)
H) None of the above
I) Something else
J) Reserve the right to decide at a later time because obviously Crooked Hillary did something wrong and even though millions have been spent on 7 Benghazi investigations by Congress showing no smoking gun, there's probably something somewhere, maybe in those deleted emails, she deleted those emails from her private server ergo she's a traitor, lock her up

Happy Anniversary, Part 1

Today is also the anniversary of the day Donald J. Trump says he saw thousands and thousands of Muslims celebrating when the twin towers came down.
“Hey, I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”--Donald J. Trump
This claim has been investigated by numerous news organizations (and advertising sales organizations that provide "news" as content between commercials) who have found no such thing happened.

The most generous explanation possible is that Trump is confusing seeing groups of non-white people reacting to the collapse of the tower--here it is important to understand a behavior known as "black reacting" (see The Nightly Show archives on this topic for examples)--and thinking they were in New Jersey.

This happens to me all the time. I was watching a movie set back in the Paleolithic era and my first thought was "what exit?"

But it's okay that I do it; I'm not running for President (although if I did, I would win... just like Sarah Palin). If Donald J. Trump is elected he might launch airstrikes thinking that it's another country only to find out that it's Trenton or Cherry Hill or The 'Boken.

Air strikes would only help in Trenton.
