This is not a new clip, but Mr Kelly, White (Supremacist) House Chief of Staff

Needs to see it.

Robert E. Lee was a traitor waging war and killing American soldiers to perpetuate a system of chattel slavery that was enforced with rape torture and murder.

Lying scum bastards of a feather flock together I guess

The indictments got me hyped up

But the guilty plea announced this morning is making me smile a big wide smile...

I am try to imagine all the ways this DOJ statement is burning holes in what passes for brains at the Orange House.

"Papadopoulos was arrested in July 2017 and pleaded guilty on Oct. 5. His plea agreement says the government will inform the sentencing judge of his "efforts to cooperate with the Government, on the condition that your client continues to respond and provide information regarding any and all matters as to which the Government deems relevant."

Ya know what?

The fish never notice that they are in a drift net until the fishermen start reeling it in.

A peek behind the curtains in GA politics

And an experiment in turning the tables.

The Cardinals are bringing back Jose Oquendo as 3rd base coach.

Thanks be to our Lord Stan Musial, maybe Jose can get the base running up to par and get our infield to take the skillets out of their gloves.

That is not the BIG big news though, Jose after all is rejoining the club, he was the 3rd base coach before - so big news, but not BIG

No the BIG news is That Willie is coming back to the Lou as a full time outfield coach. Welcome home #51, we missed you.

We need a red trucker hat

Because if it's on a red trucker hat, it has to be true.

I woke up to the news this morning and I...

Had a bit of a moment, crying for a stranger I had only seen on stage 4 times.

He was criminally unknown in the USA but he was a national hero in his native country just to our north. Gordon Downie had passed away.

I'm tearing up now just typing this...

I 1st heard the Hip in 1989 while stationed northeast of Buffalo NY.

Still remember the track that came over my beater Nova's radio, Highway Girl on k-rock 95, the Toronto station that crushed the crap corporate rock stations in Rochester and Buffalo.

For the next 3 years the classics singles kept coming one after another.

38 Years Old, Blow At High Dough, New Orleans is Sinking, Little Bones, 3 Pistols, Fiddler's Green, Locked in the Trunk of a Car.

While I lived on the shore of Lake Ontario between 1989 and 1992 The Tragically Hip released 3 of the best hard rock albums ever produced and they came came like clock work -Boom Boom Boom.

Up to Here
Road Apples
Fully Completely

After I left NY, the band drifted away from the blues rock growl and snarl mixed with the occasional ballad formula and began to let the band - and especially their front-man singer and lyricist Gord Downie have more room to explore.

Melodically more adventurous and lyrically challenging albums followed and The Hip became established as the Canadian band of record.

I have to point out that no matter how experimental the albums became, the band always played tight and skilled arrangements and never once failed to include at least 1 bad ass rocker that sounds best played loud in a speeding car.

They kept this up for over 30 years releasing albums and touring North America and Europe practically non-stop until Gordie was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer last year.

Upon getting this news, they released an album and went on tour.

Because the Road was Gordie's home as much as Kingston Ontario was.

At the conclusion of their national tour - which became an event that culminated in the final live show from Toronto broadcast on the CBC. An event that led to the Toronto PD to Tweet (only half jokingly) "Dear World, please be advised that Canada will be closed tonight beginning tonight at 8:30 ET"

Gordie then released "The Secret Path" a book and Album sharing the story of an indigenous Canadian boy who died trying to escape from a reeducation camp in the 60s.

Then he went silent, underwent treatment and lived at home with his wife and kids.

Until today.

RIP Mr. Downie.

You know why, we know why. Let me say it plain out...

I was listening to the local sports radio station on the way to work this morning. Typical sports talk FM station with a local columnist doing the 7-10 slot.

Here is something you gotta know about where I live; if you take a 10 minute drive from the city in any direction you are in the prairie and it is corn, soybeans and white folks as far as the eye can see.

So, the announcer/morning show host decides to do a hot take on the NFL protests. So topical!

Fresh thoughts from a middle aged guy the same color and consistency as a tube of Pillsbury biscuit dough! And guess what? You will be shocked to learn that this doughy creature feels that the protests are… Wait for it… MISGUIDED! What are these guys trying to achieve? Why are they doing this in such a divisive way?


They are protesting, and this is a direct fucking quote “Which I suppose is their right to do, but” (there is always a fucking BUT and we all know what lays behind a BUT – A pile of shit) “they are slowly killing the golden goose”.

Yep he put out a 20 minute segment that can be summarized as "Shut up - you're getting a paycheck"

Now I wrote that little anecdote as an introduction to laying out this little pearl of knowledge – Which we all know, but seldom just state out loud and in plain English -The reason white people are offended by the protests has nothing to do with the Flag, the Military or any other smoke screen tossed out in the media.

They are pissed off because they completely support brown people being brutalized and treated as second class (at best) citizens by the American Justice System. They would also like you all to kindly shut up about it.

They are not bothered in the least by a 12 year old boy being killed without repercussions.

Or a man choked to death for selling cigs.

Or a man shot dead while buying a BB gun in Walmart.

Or any other event that leaves a high melanin citizen bleeding or dead.

Let me be clear. They support the status quo and are pissed about ANY protest against it. The actual mechanics of the protest are unimportant. Whatever action a protester takes, in their eyes it will be disrespectful, un-American and treasonous.

Here is the bottom line.

Beatings and killings and unwarranted searches are fine. The majority of white people will always support these policies.
Because brown people are semi-human and violent - threats to “Law & Order”.

Buttressing this belief is why racist shitheads bring up “black on black” crime. This belief is the dog that the “what about Chicago” question is whistling for.

This white supremacist core value is why at the end of the day, we have Donald Fucking Trump as POTUS, and all this dancing around the edge of addressing it will not do a fucking thing to change it.

Rick Danko, Levon Helm, David Crosby, Neil Young

Perhaps one of the best "just for this 1 record" line ups in history.

Rick Danko's bass shines on this cut, and Neil's biting vocal sneer is in top form.

Greg Popovich served as an Intelligence Officer in the USAF...

Retiring early as a Major during a Reduction In Force (RIF) program.

He's had a solid career since as a basketball coach. You've probably heard of him even if you don't follow the NBA.

He's also black on fucks regarding the "President"

This is as brutal a statement from a man who served I have ever heard. Most former officers keep things low key. Not Pop.

"This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner–and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers–is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all."

You speak for us all Coach.
