Dandy Lion commented on nerd cred's blog post THIS ISN'T POLITICAL
"Nerd, here is one of the articles I referred to. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article12983720.html"

Dandy Lion commented on old new lefty's blog post Things are not working out as planned after Election Day, and that's a good thing!
"I reckon that the congressional Republicans would rather have a solid right-winger like Pence than the wild-card, erratic Trump, so there is motive for an early impeachment. And he's bound to do something to give them opportunity."

Dandy Lion commented on nerd cred's blog post THIS ISN'T POLITICAL
"Aside from swindling the Florida government for megabucks, and paying a $1.7 billion fine to settle, Scott is also the governor who ordered government employees not to refer to global warming or climate change. So appalling behavior from him is more…"

"I didn't know James well but he commented on some of my posts at Open and encouraged me to write more. Nice tribute jmac and he certainly is missed here."

"And a merry Xmas to you and yours jmac. But The Doors also covered a Weill number - The Alabama Song also known as Whiskey Bar."

"Worse than Reagan 1980."

Dandy Lion commented on Ron Powell's blog post Welcome to the OurSalon Live, Real Time, Election Night Focus Group and Open Forum
"I think there were at least two factors at work.  Some people claimed to be Hillary supporters but voted otherwise.  I'm in Canada and some female candidates have surprisingly underperformed their polling expectation.  Second,…"

Dandy Lion commented on Ron Powell's blog post Welcome to the OurSalon Live, Real Time, Election Night Focus Group and Open Forum
"What an awful outcome.  I really didn't think it would happen.  Even as late as 9:30 this evening I was reassuring my pals that those early numbers were mere flesh wounds."

Dandy Lion commented on Ted Frier's blog post “Trumpism” is America’s Problem, Not Just the GOP’s
"Great article Mr. Frier.  As opposed to a Republican problem, it’s an American one all right though the USA is not unique in this.  Most European countries have similar movements though few have as unhinged core as the Trump…"

Dandy Lion commented on Jonathan Wolfman's blog post Trump Incites Violence? Now We Know:...Words Matter (I Shared This Just Yesterday.)
"Yeah, and I saw Giuliani spinning that all Trump meant was that those who support the 2nd amendment could VOTE against Clinton.  What an oily little slug."

Dandy Lion commented on JMac1949 Today's blog post "Upspeak and Vocal Fry" It's Starting to Make me Crazy...
"I have to admit to feeling the charm of the Southern accent, though I’ve heard softer versions than most on this video.  And no “bless his/her/your heart”?  I admit to accent biases and while I quite like the Southern…"

Dandy Lion commented on Kenny1948's blog post People who criticize but contribute nothing!
"I was going to comment of foolish monkey's post but since that's not possible, I'll do it here.  I enjoyed the political discussion here especially during an SBA hiatus a year or two ago.  But when I do check in, she's…"

Dandy Lion commented on JMac1949 Today's blog post Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert having Fun with Politics
"Funny routines.  In normal times in a normal society Trump would be a joke and an object of widespread derision.  He's all that except he has a better chance of winning the presidency than any of the Cubs, Dodgers, Giants, Nationals,…"

Dandy Lion commented on JMac1949 Today's blog post Trumpxit - Not that What I Might have to Say Makes any Difference
"Re Quebec, in the first referendum the margin was close to 20 points.  Not so small. The Brexit result was awful.  There's a very good chance that well before the 2 years of exit negotiations, a majority of Brits will regret their…"

Dandy Lion commented on Tommi Avicolli Mecca's blog post Ali's greatest fight was against the military
"I'd read another statement from Ali from which some of your quotes are drawn. " “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called…"

Trump - The Producer

Posted on February 28, 2016 at 7:30am 12 Comments

        Remember that movie – The Producers?  Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom (played by Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder) try to put on a show that’s bound to fail.  They search for the most offensive, preposterous script and, well, here’s what Wiki says: 

“After reading many bad plays, the partners find the obvious…

2016 – A Bad Year For Rock Stars

Posted on February 4, 2016 at 9:23am 11 Comments

        Well hasn’t it been an awful year for classic rock stars?  Bowie, Glen Frey, Lemmy from Motorhead and on the same day, two of the original Jefferson Airplane – Paul Kantner and Signe Anderson.

        In the media overload following Bowie’s demise, I read some cynics disparaging the fuss.  That seems a bleak and callow…

I Lie For a Reason. Don't You?

Posted on November 20, 2015 at 4:00am 14 Comments

I’ve been away for a while and in going back through older posts, I noticed a topic (by koshersalaami?) on sort of a writer’s call.  It reminded me of an old conversation. 

 

        “The difference is, I lie for a reason.” 

        Tabitha, my colleague, friend, confidante and occasional nemesis, was questioning me about a series of lies I told while working on a messy political farrago where everyone was covering their asses.  I had bluffed a couple into partial…
