Care of Ace. I tried not to scrape all of it but there’s no good place to cut so here it is – most of it. I watched this on YouTube last night and planned to discuss it since; I’m a bit unsure how to discuss it, because the points Cooke makes — that Trump […]

“The whole enchilada”

by Susan Olsen April 12, 2015

Who Said It?
“I’m pretty conservative on a lot of things”

by Mike June 11, 2014

Something I hadn’t expected to learn (but why not – not every rock musician is like Springsteen) is that Metallica’s James Hetfield is actually a kinda conservative guy, with credentials that we wish some of our politicians would emulate!
