    3. Y'know, as I write this it is 7:30 on a cloudy and cool morning and Laurie is still crashed out with the insidious mutts. I remember when I was in college and people would sing this song at keg parties during the Reagan years when I was at UCONN. I knew at the time that they didn't quite get the lyrics, but this tune became representative of patriotism. And, I gotta tell ya, I think that's fine. I do not think that this tune is anti-American. I think that it incorporates criticism of the US with love of home.

    4. I just never understand what he's saying. Being a musician, people think I'm a snob, but I never tell anyone what they should or shouldn't like, although I can stand death metal. Springsteen's O.K. I wouldn't stand on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ and shout "he sucks!" I want to live.
      I love Cagney doing Yankee Doodle Boy. Not everyone's cup of apple pie, but I dig it!

    6. Years ago I invented a new type of music. It was a cross between Country and Rap. I called it Crap.

    7. Speaking of protest songs, Joan Baez chimes in with her take on "Nasty Man" Trump:

      At about 1:25 in, we hear (and see) this verse:

      /////////////////////////
      Fumblin’ and bumblin’ through the halls at night
      Turning every light switch on
      Searching for the room where you used to be the groom
      But she’s packed all her jew-ler-ee and gone.
      Yeah, she’s scooped up all of her jew-ler-ee and gone.
      /////////////////////////

      I don't like the look of that. Or am I must being sensitive?

  2. seeing as this is the one large country in the "global north" which treated Jews nicely, damn proud to be an American! Plus Columbus was a crypto-Jew converso (alleged), hence why I will defend him.

  3. Mr. Patrick Condell has no Jewish ancestors
    and no religion that might cause him to favor Jews.
