8. My nomination for this week's song

is a tune by Woody Guthrie, as timely now as in his day, called, "All You Fascists Bound to Lose."

You tube has a good video of this showing pics of modern fascists. First in the line up is Donald J. Trump.

I cannot get a link to post. Anyone who can, please do so.

Short, catchy tune. Fun to sing on the way to your voting site, although too partisan to sing once you're there. (Maybe hum it without the words to keep your spirits up while you wait in line.)

Something of a Popular Front man, myself.

For example, Whig has varying political meanings according to place and time. I am not familiar with what appears to be an uncited quote in your post, so it has no context for me and I wonder why you posted it without naming the source.

Comrade is also a term with variable meanings, but the most commonly recognized political use of it in the US is in reference to the communist party.

The term "sir" is somewhat more specific, but has no application to me. I am neither knighted nor male.

You are free to take whatever meaning pleases you from any words I use. I am well aware an author bears some responsibility for any meaning which can be taken from written words, whether that meaning is plain or requires torture of the text.

"With me, fishing has always been an excuse to drink in the morning."
