G’day, Wheelizens!

Hai, Mac; hope that you and Elena are healing well.

I’m cutting out that getting to know you phase for Trump.

Hee! Had an amusing mental image of Sven singing a sarcastic version of “Getting To Know You” from The King And I.

Maaaaan…some of Drumpf’s supporters sure are sore winners. And Joooo-haters.

Actually what I’ve been humming to myself, to the tune of Tomorrow (apparently from Annie) is “it’s only a trigger pull away” in place of “you’re only a day away”

Well, it’s funny to me…

Hai, Sven…I like your updated “Tomorrow” lyrics. 👿

Insty’s certainly got pithy snark down to a science:

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
And a shout-out to our intrepid keeper-o-teh-threads, Mac! I hope that both you and Elena are doing better.

I see that Gary Johnson’s web page has gotten a yuuuuuuuge! increase in traffic since Cruz halted his campaign.

Crude; nonetheless, “heh!”

It’s hard to believe that the OC Weekly actually used that on the dead-tree cover of their magazine.

Even harder to believe the unworthy, feculent candidates being shoved down our throats.

Death to the Democrat and Republican parties!

As usual, Ace is spot on today…

Second, Trump represents an very stupid and dangerous form of authoritarianism. Everything with him is force and bullying. Riots at the convention if he doesn’t get his way. His online trolls actively threatening people’s physical safety.

I don’t get it — I’m supposed to be outraged by Lois Lerner, yet amused by this? Why? Because this will only be visited upon my enemies? First, that’s not principled, that’s just stupid tribalism,, and second, it’s not true — the gentle persuasions of authoritarian You Will Be Made to Buckle are already being visited on us, and by “us,” I mean non-Democrats.

I personally didn’t oppose the thuggishness of the left just to be bullied by a new thuggishness of the alt-right.

AoS appears to be one of the last bastions of sanity, Paddy.

I’ve listened to this song a dozen times today:

Not sure why, but looked this up tonight too: Manfred Mann’s Earth Band: As Above, So Below. I have the album on vinyl--need to rip it.

“The title of this album was inspired by a recording made in Surrey, England during the Second World War, by an ornithologist intending to record Nightingales. The bombers flew over at the same time and were recorded by accident. The recording has been incorporated in ‘As Above, So Below'”. -- Manfred Mann 1975

And some absolutely fantastic guitar work from Steve Hunter:
