To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed.--TL Simons

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.
