Late Night FDL: Wolf Moon

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real – Wolf Moon

Neil Young certainly doesn’t mince his words…

When Donald Trump strode on to the stage at Trump Tower on Tuesday to announce that he would enter the Republican race for president, a rock and roll anthem blared: Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.” It was an odd choice, given that the 1989 song seemed to slam a Republican administration for not giving a damn about the poor. And Young has taken exception to Trump’s appropriation of his tune. A statement issued to Mother Jones for Young by his longtime manager Elliot Roberts suggests Young was not pleased by Trump’s use of the song:

Donald Trump’s use of “Rockin’ in the Free World” was not authorized. Mr. Young is a longtime supporter of Bernie Sanders.

In other words, it may be a free world, but you’re not free to steal my song.

What’s on your mind tonite…?

    I must say that I love Neil’s sheer activism, he’s a true Canuck…!

    With a Fed. Judge weighing her decision on Maui’s GMO ban(in which she should’ve recused herself for her husband’s ties to Monsanto/Big AG), Neil gives an impromptu show on the Valley Isle…

    Anyone who’s ever made an off-hand online comment about what they think should be done to politicians, judges, etc., needs read the Buzzfeed piece below:

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/cjciaramella/justice-department-subpoenaes-reasoncom-to-unmask-commenters#.ugKDXdqPv

    The DoJ has issued a, now leaked, subpoena to reason.com (a libertarian website) to hand over all possible identifying info they have on six commenters who made fairly tame comments about what they thought should be done to “judges like” the one who gave the Silk Road founder a life sentence.

    “The government will resign in the next 24 hours because this one is weak and there is no chance that Hamas will allow it to work in Gaza,” said secretary general Amin Maqbul.

    as long as Hamas and Israel aren’t talking directly to each other, it ain’t notable news.

    why would Arne Duncan have to justify anything because a single school committed fraud?

    Jesus fucking Christ, are you stupid, or are you just pretending to be stupid?

    Arne Duncan is an advocate of charter schools. Many charter schools, including this one, are corrupt.

    Inasmuch as we’re communicating electronically, I have to type this out. But if I could draw it for you with crayons, I’d be happy to do so.

    no, I’m simply pointing out the stupidity in the comment.

    fraud found in a single school unconnected to Duncan is not anything for him to explain.

    “Educational attainments” is the kind of phrase you expect from an intellectually insecure person who’s trying to impress the rubes with his ten-dollar vocabulary. It’s the Charlie the Tuna syndrome: Starkist wants tuna that taste good, pal. They don’t want a tuna trying to show it has good taste.

    Actually, I wanted to reread his post about the LA Times advocating for Edward Snowden’s prosecution. Why can’t I find a link to Kevin’s previous posts, like when his stories could be found and revisited via “The Dissenter” link? Am I just overlooking a link to his “section”?

    If you click on Kevin’s name on a post by him, that will take you to a page with all articles posted under his name since “the change.” Ditto for any author/poster.

  81. PillBilly
    June 17, 2015 at 12:21 pm

    Thanks, but his name was only available to “click on”, because CT posted a link to one of his articles after I asked about it. I’ve yet to see how one would “easily” find his posts without going back chronologically through all the FDL posts until you came across one of his, and then you could click on his name for his other ones. I even tried clicking on “About” (top of FDL) > “Staff”, > Kevin Gosztola. Even then, there is no hot link to his posts. Seems like a waste of a writer’s effort, for there not to be an easy way to access their body of posts.
