And now Joe ‘de-Hydes’?

Image result for joe biden cartoons

We are watching a rather sad movie or the rewriting of Joe Biden’s resume.  Once upon a time, he said some interesting things about Anita Hill, immigration chaos, and late-term abortion.   
That was Joe BT or Joe Biden before Trump.   Now, it’s Joe AT — after Trump.   
Frankly, Joe BT was better.  At least, he was speaking from the heart.   Joe AT is just pandering to a party hijacked by the left.   (Let’s stop calling these people liberals, please)
The latest change is over the Hyde Amendment, as John McCormack wrote:   
In what may be his first major move to the left on policy as a 2020 presidential candidate, Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden has endorsed repealing the Hyde amendment, a measure that prohibits federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is endangered.    
“It can’t stay,” Biden said of the Hyde amendment during an exchange with an ACLU activist earlier this month. The video of the exchange was posted by the ACLU on Twitter on May 8th but has drawn little attention since then (it was flagged by Washington Post reporter David Weigel on Sunday evening).
This is sick and it makes VP Biden look bad.  
First, it won’t work with the party’s crazy leftist base because they won’t believe the flip-flopping.
Second, it won’t work in the general election because he will look like a man who just reads polls.
Maybe VP Biden will win the nomination or win the presidency.  He may also melt when the activists start challenging his authenticity.
Stick to your principles Joe, or the Trump campaign will tear you up using your own words.

1965: “Ticket to ride” was # 1 this week

The Beatles added another # 1 song to their story.  
Ticket to ride” hit # 1 this week in the US, the UK and lots of other countries.   It was a great vocal performance by John & Paul.    George played a super guitar.  Ringo was unique with his drums.

The B-side “Yes it is” did not get a lot of radio airplay but was included in the “Beatles VI” LP released in the US.
The song was in the soundtrack of the movie “Help”.

Out of touch Democrats need to look down under


Over the weekend, a new round of experts got stung.  

Down in Australia, the voters sent a message and you’d better believe that “climate change” was in the mix.

This is from Stuart Varney:
The candidate Opens a New Window.  pushing tax hikes was sure to win.
The media Opens a New Window.  and the elites backed him.
The polls all said he would come out on top. Even the exit polls said he would win.
But he didn’t. Bill Shorten, Labour Party leader, lost Australia’s general election. The pundits are in a state of shock!
Now we don’t spend much time on Australian politics, but Democrats here should be taking a long hard look at this one.
In Australia voters were not prepared to sacrifice in the name of climate change, and they didn’t want to risk their prosperity by taxing the rich!
To be fair, election results are always complicated but something happened down under and it was not give us more liberalism.
On Sunday night, I called an Australian friend who lives in the area and asked for his thoughts about the election.  He said two things:
Australians are fed with an ever bureaucratic government.  They want more and more taxes and give you less services.   As he said, we are not getting our money’s worth.
He also said that climate change is one of those theoretical topics that sounds good on paper but hard to explain to the businesses or even labor unions fearful of losing their livelihood.
Is there a message for Democrats?  Yes — talk to real people and listen to what they have to say.  Beware of experts who only talk to other experts.

“Shane” the 3rd best Western ever?

Had a little time and watched “Shane”, a movie that I had seen bits and pieces of many times before.    
It was great.    
Shane is played by Alan Ladd.  He meets Joe Starrett (Van Heflin) and his wife, Marian (Jean Arthur) who are small farmers in Wyoming.    He learns that there is a campaign of intimidation against the farmers.    
What a great movie.    The rest is up to you.    Watch it!  
“Shane” is # 3  in the American Film Institute’s Top 10 Westerns.     By the way, # 2 is “High noon”, another one of my favorites.

1955: Chuck Berry and the story of "Maybellene"


Chuck Berry has a very special place in the history of rock.  He is one of the legendary composers and guitarists.     Where would rock be without Chuck Berry?

On this day in 1955, Chuck Berry recorded "Maybellene" and the rest is history.
Berry went on to have many more hits.   He also influenced The Beatles and The Rolling Stones of the next generation of rock.    
It all started for Berry with the wonderful "Maybellene".

"Silly love songs" # 1 this week in 1976



Image result for paul mccartney silly love songs images
Who remembers "Silly love songs"?  Or catching Paul McCartney & Wings in "The Wings over America" tour of 1976?

In terms of pop hits and records sold, Paul was the most successful ex-Beatle.    John went into seclusion for much of the late 1970s.   Ringo and George had some hits but not much more.

Paul had lots of hits, a recognition of his ability to write catchy tunes.    

In the summer of 1976, Paul was back on the radio and touring the US.

"Silly love songs" was # 1 for 5 weeks and was the most popular song of the year:

We remember Raymond Burr (1917-1993)




Image result for raymond burr images
We remember Raymond Burr, known to most of us as Perry Mason.  He was born on this day in 1917 and died in 1993.    
Back in 1956,  Burr was in Cuba working on “Affair in Havana“.     Burr played “Mal Mallabee”, a rich businessman confined to a wheelchair as the result of a boating accident.  Mallabee hired an investigator to look into his wife Lorna (Sara Shane) who is allegedly having an affair with Nick Douglas, an American living and working in Cuba played by John Cassavetes.   
Catch “Affair in Havana” the next time it’s shown on the retro channels.   I won’t tell you more about the plot. 
The movie will take you back to a time when Americans worked and invested in Cuba without fear of confiscation, totally functional pre-Castro Cuba.
After that movie, Burr applied for the role of “Perry Mason” .   He won the audition and started that show later in 1957 and it became one of the most popular TV series ever. 
I recall my late father saying that he saw the show in pre-Castro Cuba.  I remember watching the show in Mexico overdubbed in Spanish.

Burr had another popular series called “Ironside”.   It was good but I think most of us remember him for those Perry Mason shows.

As a result of the flight, Lindbergh became an international personality and met his future wife during a trip to Mexico.     He died in 1974.
