Blooming Idiots

Open Thread Image.jpg

Here we are in the full flush of spring flowers, and the thought came to me that we are lorded over by blooming idiots. Take for example Biden's Gaza pier. Currently hundreds of trucks filled with food and relief items are lined up on the border ready to deliver the goods. However, there are Israeli settlers protesting and preventing the delivery. Seems a small military deployment could easily open up the route for the relief, but there's no will. Would the IDF shoot US soldiers? They have before. So why build the pier? How about to export Palestinians, first to Cyprus and then scatter them through the EU. I heard that speculated this week.

Album of the Week 3-23-24

Afternoon folks!

This week there are albums from all three Kings of the Blues, including one kinda goofy, kinda interesting album of one King doing the songs of "The King." After that we've got some soul from Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, some blues rock from Johnny Winter and some rockabilly from Wanda Jackson. In the diversity department we've got an album from Geoff Muldaur that I picked up at a used record store many years ago having heard one track on the radio and thinking the whole album might be a bit like that. Oops. Bonus points if anybody can figure out which cut that was.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the tunes!

Friday Night Photos Spring Edition

Happy Friday everyone. I hope everybody is doing well. Post any photos, memes, or music you like.

It's Spring. That means the days are getting longer. The temperatures are getting warmer. The trees are turning green. The flowers are blooming and mattresses are one sale. The return of Spring also brings with it the annual butterfly exhibit at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Open Thread - Thurs 21 Mar 2024 - Third Parties

Third Parties

A bit over a month ago Ron Placone (comedian, movie maker, political blogger, writer, used to appear on the Jimmy Dore show, and much more) wrote a substack/blog post about why he was joining the Green Party. It's called 'Why I Chose to Green Enter'.

I found the blog post to be interesting and thought provoking and I think Placone did a very good job of explaining why, even though he's really a 'no party preference' type of voter, joining the Green Party makes sense to him at this point.
