My epic breakup and Parliament Funkadelic AKA Pfunk story

RIP Mose Allison

Saw him in San Francisco. There was a small earthquake which made it such a perfect night. 2016 keeps throwing body blows.

I can’t believe the things I’m seeing

I wonder ’bout some things I’ve heard

Everybody’s Crying Mercy

When they don’t know the meaning of the word

A bad enough situation

It’s sure enough getting worse

Everybody’s Crying Justice

Just as long as it’s business first

Toe to toe

Touch and go

Give a cheer

Get your souvenir

People running ’round in circles

Don’t know what they’re headed for

Everybody’s Crying Peace on Earth

Just as soon as we win this war

Straight ahead

Knock ’em dead

Pack your kit

Choose your hypocrite

Well you don’t have to go to off-Broadway

To see something plain absurd

Everybody’s Crying Mercy

When they don’t know the meaning of the word

Nobody knows the meaning of the word

America: Look what you’ve done

Donald Trump the Final Word

Jailing your opponent after an electoral victory isn’t democracy it’s the end of a democracy.

An American Embassy Member on Benghazi Controversy

I was chatting with a friend who works for an American Embassy. His thoughts were illuminating.

what did you think about how Benghazi was handled?

I don’t even know what that means. There is no expectation of any of us that the US Military is coming to our rescue. I have been places where our security officer had to explain that we were on our own if something went wrong, but I always knew that, anyway. Nothing happened in Benghazi that is out of the ordinary.

i deal with people every day that are still having hissy fits over it

I actually find that insulting. Those people died as heroes. They accepted a risk to fight the battle of ideas, a battle where the fundamental belief is that the hope for humanity is found in reasoning. Sometimes people die in that fight. That is heroic. People treat them like cowering desk jockeys. It is insulting.
