Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Stupid Ploys

I have another piece at CounterPunch today.

In it I make fun of Trump for stealing Queen's music for his campaign.

But the thieving doesn't start or stop with Trump; a history of this sort of malfeasance dates back to Reagan and his clueless misinterpretation of Springsteen's "Born in the USA."

This one was sanctioned but should have been avoided, simply because it was saccharine and in poor taste--much like the Clintons themselves I suppose.
