A summary of the top songs of 1970

For those of my generation! This was the music of 1970 on AM radio. Just a reminder, that was 50 years ago!

I am a Truck

I Am a Truck: 1960. Like most American kids, some of us grew up with Children Songs. Children songs rarely change. They are upbeat, happy-go-lucky tunes. Last years well-known kid song “Baby Shark” was not only an annoying song to adults but also an anthem to fans of the Washington Nationals baseball team. Don’t ask. This is a song from my childhood. The record laid around our house for 10 years.

Left wing double entendre

Left wing double entendre: One-Way to get around censorship is the methodology of “Double Entendre”. It was done in 19-century literature to get around church dogma. In the 20th century it was used to use for lyrics about sex and drugs starting with Bessie Smiths 1931 song: I need a little sugar in my bowl. It sounds innocent enough but it’s not. If you remark what the lyrics really means then you are accused of having a dirty mind. So this passive/aggressive method of being nasty is very Anglo-Saxon. It all died in the early 70’s when bands just blurted it out! Hey Baby! Let’s F- -K!
In the 60’s, radio was pretty conservative. So conservative that they accused songs having a secret message, so it was pulled off the air. The Beatles 1966 song “Yellow Submarine” was accused of being about going an acid trip. That was the Gavin report. Read all about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gavin_Report
In order to have a protest song that would have been indicted as Anti-American, they had to disguise it as a love song. The Canadian band “Guess Who” had a 1970 double entendre song called: American Woman. You think it was about this Canadian guy who was avoiding having a relationship this American woman. Nah! It was about Canada not wanting to be like the USA. Another song “See link below” was Don McLean’s 1971 song “Everybody love me” This you think it was about this arrogant guy who has sex with every woman he meets. Nope! The song is about America!
Censorship has eased up; there are less of these songs. Thank Buddha!

An Open Letter to the Senate Republicans

Party Loyalty Versus Morality

Honorable Senators of the United States Senate:

I am going to try really hard not to curse or go into a tirade. I will be respectful and remain as dignified as possible. Here it goes:

I am not naive enough, or Pollyanna hearted to believe you are going be objective over the Impeachment trial of President Trump. I know that you are going to vote to acquit him and to not remove him from office. Why? It is because he is a member of your family, or tribe.
It kind of works that way in slums. What is the old adage? Snitches get stitches. If someone commits a crime in your tribe, then you pretend you never saw it and, if or when you are asked about it, you reply: “I know nothing.” If you do rat, or “inform” on your fellow tribesman, then you are punished. It doesn’t matter if you are in the army, a street gang, or a family. It is all about being loyal.
However, is “Loyalty” a virtue? The 3rd branch of Philosophy—Ethics—has debated this preposition for hundreds of years. If your son commits a heinous crime, do you support him, love him, lie, and hide him? Or, do you turn him over to the police?
This ethical dilemma is why you will be voting “not guilty.” You will rationalize it and say the evidence is flimsy, predicated on hearsay. You will not say the real reason you are exonerating him. What is the real reason? If you vote your conscious then you will anger your rich donors and the party bosses. So, you recite your party’s talking points like a well-programmed robot, and prepare for your reelection. Come on! You know it’s true!
There is more in “Sacrifice” then dying for your country on a battlefield. Sacrifice also means betraying your rich donors and Republican leadership for the sake of patriotic justice. We have an insane, drug-addled president who could start World War Three at any moment. If you vote “Guilty,” not only will you save America, you will save the entire world!
Before you throw away your vote on vindicating a scurrilous reprobate, may I make a suggestion? Read the book by John F. Kennedy, “Profile In Courage.” What will you learn from this book? Don’t be a good Republican. Be a great patriot!

Yours truly,

Koch Ebola
