    About a year into the pandemic, I accidentally discovered that a close friend of mine was a Republican of the genus Trumpicus. I innocently asked her if she’d gotten vaccinated yet, and she replied that she wasn’t going to because the vaccine had killed thousands of people around the world, adding that this wasn’t common knowledge because the media wasn’t reporting it… Also, she added this thought – I’m paraphrasing: Pandemics happen – always have and always will. So, a group of folks that would yawn in the face of a world-wide pandemic – and yawn they did – aint gonna give a rat’s a$$ about things like industrial accidents. Right, and if anyone out there doubts the necessity of regulations, that person needs to go over to Turkey right now and witness what the lack of these has wrought.

    yes – no argument there – it strikes me that Nick could do any genre and it would be good – a guitarist that’s worked on a few of his albums was a member of Commander Cody, which I guess you’d call a western swing/country rock band.

    Yowza – the Specials! Ska! Think you could also call it “alt reggae.” The Specials, the English Beat… I saw the latter once in Chapel Hill, NC. At some point, a few guys from the English Beat formed a band called the Fine Young Cannibals, good, good, good. When it comes to pop/rock, it’s hard to beat the alt stuff that appeared in the 70s and into the 80s. Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads, New Order, the Jam, the Pretenders, Tracey Thorn……………………

    And, here’s the other thing… According to those guys, it’s the liberals who are always worrying about stuff that doesn’t need to be worried about. Then they, for example, go and fight 24/7 to keep couples, as a friend of mine puts it, with the same sex part from being able to marry. And if you really want to see how good conservatives are at figuring out what to worry about, go compare Covid death rates between areas of the country that supported Biden and those that supported Trump. I know I for one will sleep better when Republicans take control of the House and launch investigations of Hunter Biden, Dr. Fauci, and the investigation of the January 6th insurrection. Getting to the bottom of these problems will surely make America great again…………………

    Yes. Yes. Yes. Can’t do anything to mess with the votes that keep you in power, right.

    Read a great column the other day about this incident… Its point was the that the lie here is really the least repulsive thing, the most disgusting aspect being that Trump’s not knowing indeed makes it all okay. So nothing to see if the guy has dinner with a Nazi, if he’s unaware of the fact, but the other suggestion here is that Nazis in America is NOT a problem to Trump if he doesn’t know about it. Think of the times you’ve seen him take this angle when asked about Nazis, white supremacists, etc., specifically when he’s asked what he thinks about their words and actions. The first thing he does is plead ignorance of the speech or deeds in question, and then whatever follows involves no condemnation of hatred or racism. And Trump’s followers and defenders do the same thing. A common line you heard from many of these who were asked about this incident went basically like this: I didn’t know about that. Naturally, this leads to another question: If all of these capable Republicans know so little about the Nazis in this country, why aren’t they ever moved to learn more?
