A break from politics with a song I composed.

I am a huge fan of T REX, so I decided to write a song in that style. If you like it, please rec it.

Thanks for listening.



do you remember you were really wild?
cruising with your friends down the miracle mile
ain't it great to be young and alive
zero to hero in 3.5
corporation priestess on my TV screen
she pedals gold leaf to social extremes
don't touch that dial the American idol
shot through the heart of what's really vital
The Cool Kids do it
All the Cool Kids are doing it
All the Cool Kids do it
so why don't you?
don't you wish it was just like the tales?
left abandoned in designer labels
Ain't it great to be young and alive?
hero to zero in 2.5
corporation priestess on my TV screen
she pedals gold cards and Hollywood dreams
and while they're selling you the final solution..the cheap absolution....the SOFT REVOLUTION
The Cool Kids do it
All the Cool Kids are doing it
All the Cool Kids do it
so why don't you? (not with you)
we are the Cool Kids walking down the street
dancing to our own drum marching to our own beat
we are the Cool Kids walking down the street
dancing to our own drum marching to our own beat
The Cool Kids do it
All the Cool Kids are doing it
All the Cool Kids do it
so why don't you?

we are the Cool Kids walking down the street
dancing to our own drum, marching to our beat

Even Fox is telling trump to STFU!


One wonders what Donald Trump’s electoral fortunes would look like if he and his supporters transferred all the energy they put into attacking polls that show him losing into actually trying to persuade voters....

Once again, I ask trump and pence where is the proof that his accusers are lying?

I only ask because last Friday, trump and pence both said the proof was "hours away." Could it have been the former Arkansas anchorwoman who came forward about Bill and was subsequently invited to the debate? If so, it is hardly proof of anything. It's "I know you are but what am I?"

trump loyalists plan own exit poll amid claims of 'rigged' election


trump loyalists will attempt to conduct their own crowd-funded exit polling on election day, ostensibly due to fears that electronic voting machines in certain areas may have been “rigged”, the Guardian has learned.

But the effort, led by Trump’s notorious informal adviser Roger Stone, will focus on 600 different precincts in nine Democratic leaning cities with large minority populations, a tactic branded highly irregular by experts, who suggested that organizers could potentially use the polling as a way to intimidate voters.

Stone told the Guardian that around 1,300 volunteers from the controversial Citizens for Trump grassroots coalition would conduct exit polling in Cleveland, Detroit, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Fort Lauderdale, Charlotte, Richmond and Fayetteville – all locations in pivotal swing states.


Stone, who did not identify the particular precincts volunteers would be targeting, argued that the polling methodology, was “designed by professionals”, but was unable to identify who these professionals were. The former Richard Nixon adviser added that the effort was being run by the “Stop the Steal” organization, a group founded by Stone in the lead up to the Republican national convention in July, which organized protests aimed at preventing party delegates from taking the nomination away from Trump.

Christie dumps trump, dodges question, "Are you proud of trump's campaign?"


Listen, for me, the person who needs most to be concerned about the kind of the campaign they’re running is the candidate, because it’s the candidate’s campaign,” Christie said. “It’s not my campaign, it’s not Jeff Sessions’ campaign, it’s not Rudy Giuliani’s campaign. We’re surrogates. And I’m proud of everything I’ve said and that’s all I can control. The rest of it I can’t control, Kelly.”

The clip aired on Tuesday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Awkward. Just so awkward,” host Mika Brzezinski quipped.

I just wanted to point something out...

the world is now used to hacks as a part of daily life. Wikileaks is seen as a legitimate news source. we are more concerned with the content of the hack than the way in which the information was acquired, and there isn't an agency anywhere in the world that's doing enough to try and stop it. Cutting Assange's internet isn't even scratching the surface.What he is doing is a complete and utter misinterpretation of the concept of freedom of speech. Even if he was posting hacked trump emails, I would feel the same way.....but he isn't. We are officially getting used to being hacked and no one is alarmed.

I hate to say it, but even Nixon must be rolling in his grave.

BTW, Where is the irrefutable proof that trump's accusers are lying?

He and Pence promised it was "hours away" as of Friday.

thanks to Huffington post

they end each and every trump article with this:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

just a thought, RE donald and his denials

if donald says the women who accuse him of groping and assault are lying, then HE is a liar on Howard Stern and with Billy Bush and everything else, and nothing but all brag and no action. We don't need that kind of person in the White House, either.

you can not have it both ways, trump. sorry.

trump urges supporters to vote on November 28.


Florida voters, be forewarned: consult a calendar, not your candidate before casting ballots for president next month — especially those taking cues from Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“We’re doing something that’s incredible, it’s a movement,” Mr. Trump told supporters Tuesday at a campaign rally in Panama City. “But if we don’t win, all it is is a little asterisk in history. There’s never been anything like this so go and register, make sure you get out and vote Nov. 28.”

As the nation’s largest swing state, Florida will undoubtedly play a pivotal part in deciding between Mr. Trump or Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton as the nation’s next president next month. Voters taking advice from Mr. Trump won’t have their say, however, if they heed their candidate’s advice and cast their ballots three weeks after Election Day actually occurs on Nov. 8.
