(Song learned in 40s)Last night as I lay on my pillow, Last night as I lay on my bed,

I stuck my feet out the window.

Next morning my neighbors were dead!

Oh bring back, oh bring back, oh bring back my neighbors to me, to me.

Oh bring back, oh bring back, oh bring back my neighbors to me!

Leopold who bought, raped the Congo, was son of Queen Victoria's uncle (mother's brother)!!!

Leopold II of Belgium

Interconnectedness of PTB nothing new

What's going on with the polls in Beto-Cruz race? Wasn't it close? Now Beto just 20% chance of win?!

Want info on Saudi/WaPo journalist disappearance/murder? See CRofer post at---

Rofer's research-backed post today at balloon-juice.com.

Many links to sources.

Also info and links in comments to her post.

'OUR neeegroes are very happy. It's all these outside agitators that are causing trouble!!!'

Common southern white cry during the Civil Rights era.

Remember seeing a heavy-set bearded white politician saying this during a discussion at some Democratic National Convention.

Also remember watching the 1976 Democratic Convention when the Carters, the Veep nominee's family came together on the platform to celebrate the 76 nominees--they led the convention in singing 'We shall overcome,' the call to arms of the Civil Rights Movement.

How do dems fight GOP control of senate by withdrawing support from dem candidates???

Do boarding houses, rooming houses still exist? They're common in pre-WWII novels

Note--my grandmother ran one until late 30s.

Why, oh why do avowedly liberal sites constantly attack dems? Esp now

I understand people get unhappy that dem leaders aren't doing what they (the complainers) think is the right approach. But why not suggest that readers get out, get involved, help work on strategy.

From the little I saw of the work the dem county chair did during a campaign I was in awe. There was so much more involved than what I had ever imagined.

I don't know the actual background of those writing the doom-and-gloom attacks.

But rather than join in on the perenniel complaint that the national or local dems aren't doing it right, aren't making the effective moves, why not get involved and start to help set strategies that you think are effective? And surprise-- you just might discover that your view is limited by your experience and that other people with different experuences might just see something you have been missing.

Has anyone posted the lyrics to Lynzy Lab's song 'A Scary Time' online?

'Keep calm. Keep cool. And be collected.(repeat 3x ever more softly) GO WOMEN!!'

Adapted from a late 50s HS football cheer!

IIRC, it was to encourage team and fans when things didn't look so good.
