These Clinton haters are at it again.
Last time Comey addressed the Clinton emails the Clinton camp spun it to sound like Comey cleared Clinton of all wrongdoing. That was of course, a lie. Comey never cleared Clinton, in fact, he said Clinton misused her email system and did send top secret emails off her private email system. And he added her email could have been hacked and normally would be disciplined for such action, but he brought no charges. Showing a disregard for sensitive information on Clinton's part and a total lack of government communication processes.
Now the Clinton haters are going nuts over Comey's latest statement. As usual, the Clinton haters want it both ways. It's hilarious that this was all caused by Clinton's pervert buddy who was already caught sending dick pics through his phone. Now he has been caught sending inappropriate material to a minor, so of course the FBI investigated all his emails and what do you know, Clinton appears on those emails.
As I have said many times, get ready for a Clinton presidency that is full of scandals. Her working character is secretive and dishonest. She responds with lies and hate, and her supporters are even worse than her.
I've already received my daily vulgar hate mail and death threats from Dervish Sanders and his hate buddies this morning. I guess they were up all night (drunk) thinking up words like cocksucker and other vulgarities to send me. Just like Clinton's pervert buddy. These Clinton haters learn from their leader. Just as Clinton was an ass to Sanders (that came out of her emails also) who was a gentleman during the debates with her, going so far as to say, "I'm sick and tired of hearing about your emails." And just like Republican idiot leaders who support Trump no matter what he says, Sanders is out telling people to vote for crooked Hillary.
The only difference between Trump and Clinton, is Trump uses more vulgar language publicly. Clinton is clearly more deceptive and that makes her dangerous.

Dream a Little Dream of Me

"Dream a Little Dream of Me" from 1931, music by Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt and lyrics by Gus Kahn. It was first recorded in February 1931 by Ozzie Nelson.

This song has always been a favorite of the American people and musicians. All the great singers have a version of this song. One of the most popular versions was by Mama Cass Elliot in 1968 (above). Cass Elliot was a member of the famous folk group "The Mama's and the Papas." She first sang the song with the group and then released this solo version. Mama had a great voice. Check out her music.

Eve of Destruction?

"Eve of Destruction" sung by Barry McGuire. Only Barry McGuire's gravely voice makes his version of this song better than all other versions. Released in 1965 it was the war protest song of the many that came out of the Vietnam era. McGuire was a folk singer in the group "The New Christy Minstrels" but this was a solo release by McGuire. P. F. Sloan wrote the song. The song is about irrational hate that begets irrational war. Many cite this song when they feel America is on the edge, like today. We survived then and we will survive now. WW II was much closer to the eve of destruction, but the words are prophetic. McGuire had many other hits in a long career. Check out his music.

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan just received the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. Well deserved for a life of poetry. That's the cherry on the top of his award littered life. Along with all of his music awards, Hall of Fame inductions, and top civilian awards like the Medal of Freedom, he is certainly getting the accolades he deserves.
His genius for "words and music" equals the best ever and only personal taste discerns a difference from other all time greats. Which begs the question why other great composers of "words and music" were not considered for the Pulitzer Prize Literature award.
A true musical troubadour of the 20th century and his generation. His music will be listened to for hundreds of years, and that is a good thing. If you are not familiar with his "words and music" read his words, listen to his music. 
The video below is Dylan live at the Newport Folk Festival in 1964 singing, "Mr. Tambourine Man."

Trump's Vulgarity

 This is what Sen. John McCain said today about the vulgarity Trump displayed in the now famous 2005 video:

"There are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments," the Republican senator from Arizona said in a statement. "No woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior. He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences."

There it is. Republicans trying to distance themselves from their elected candidate, that all Republicans endorsed. Even today, the Republican leaders won't take blame for their endorsements of Trump, including McCain.
Read my post, "Republicans Endorsing Clinton" and you will know I reject all these Republicans denouncing what Trump does, or says, yet, still supporting him and telling Americans to vote for him for president. Republicans will get off to easy if we allow them to now get away with disowning Trump. A price has to be paid for their bankrupt policies and their hate filled candidates.

Long John Baldry

              From Long John Baldry's 1971 album "It Ain't Easy" this is "Black Girl."

Rod Stewart and Elton John worked on this album. In fact the piano you here is Elton John playing.

From the same album this next song is called, "Don't Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie On The King Of Rock And Roll."

Republicans Endorsing Clinton

Clinton supporters are giddy over Republicans and Republican newspapers endorsing Clinton.
I don't want their endorsements. I don't want to let them off the hook. They should be stuck with the demagogue they have chosen as their candidate. Republican leaders are denouncing what Trump says, but won't rescind their endorsements.
These Republican newspapers have endorsed every idiot idea the Republicans have put forward that has helped ruin our government. Now they want to distance themselves from the clown their party has elected. I guess they want to save face with the public, but that was gone years ago when they endorsed trickle down economics,  when they endorsed Bush who lied and invaded Iraq killing thousands of American soldiers, when they endorsed not paying for two wars and a drug bill and raising the debt another 6 trillion, when they endorsed Bush's cutting Veteran benefits in the middle of a war, when they endorsed tax cuts when we were 16 trillion in debt, when they endorsed not renewing the Voting Rights Act in the face of Republicans passing laws that eliminated people's right to vote and courts finding those laws unconstitutional, when they endorsed Bush sending tax rebate checks to Americans while the debt grew, when they endorsed Cheney and his Halliburton company getting government contracts even when that company was killing soldiers with their dangerous supplies, and on, and on, and on.
Trump wants more tax cuts. Trump wants more trickle down economics. Trump wants to build up our already world superior military. Trump wants a wall on the Mexican border. Trump wants everything the Republicans have wanted for 40 years, most of which has been tried and proven to be failures. What's the difference? Trump is an outspoken bigot, racist, and hater? He's just been more vocal about what Republicans have been saying and passing laws about, for decades.
Republicans need to pay a higher price for the horrible leadership of the last 40 years and the criminally bad leaders they have put forth. They need to answer for electing Trump. I'm no prude so Trump's language makes no difference to me, than what Republicans have stood for, for decades. Is bad language the tipping point? Hogwash!
This decades old cry from Republicans that what government needs is a businessman as president. Hogwash! Government is as opposite from business as children are from adults. Government services are built on the idea of communal taxation. Business is built on the idea of paying no, or little taxes as possible. That's why Trump brags about not paying taxes and his corporate policies are all about not paying taxes. We should eliminate tax loop holes for companies like Trumps. Government is providing services to all the people, not bowing to the rich. Government should be paying its bills, not running up debt and then file bankruptcy. Republicans have gotten their way, cut taxes, no new taxes, and it has left us 20 trillion in debt. Republicans want to claim Obama has double the debt. Maybe that's because he is working on Republican laws and tax cuts, and the Republican majority won't let Obama change any of that.
So cheer on Republicans and Republican newspapers endorsing Clinton, but they should not be allowed to get off that easy. They should take the heat for the policies they passed and endorsed, that put us in this poor situation. They must pay a price for those rotten policies and their rotten candidate.
If Clinton needs Republican endorsements to win, she is a weak candidate.
