THIS Is An “Assault-Style Weapon.”

I dunno, Babs, but I do know this. I’d rather have that than nothing.

Independence Day 2015

Saturday, 4 July 2015

Editing The Declaration of Independence1776

Today is the Commemoration of the Birth of a New Nation, conceived in Liberty, on the self-evident proposition that All Men are created equal. No other nation in history accomplished what these 13 Colonies did, and no other nation in history achieved what the United States of America accomplished in such a relatively short time span. God Bless America.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

READ IT.

Better yet, read it while listening to this:

Stars and Stripes Forever

Note that the link to the recording dated August 1903 contains a politically correct disclaimer:

WARNING: These historical recordings may contain offensive or inappropriate language.

That warning, attached to a recording of a classic John Philip Sousa composition from the early 1900s, was intended as a caution to those who might be offended by the *ahem* lyrics. Pure idiocy.

Have a great Independence Day, and Remember Always.

Cozy

I’ll belch and I’ll fart and I’ll scratch where it itches, whenever and wherever.

Deal with it.

Independence Day

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (more…)

Saturday Matinee – Freedom, World Climate Control, Flo & Eddie, Neil Young (and A Poll)

Saturday, 23 January 2010

Sure it’s simplistic, with the 1949 cartoon stereotypes and all, but that doesn’t make the message wrong. Worth watching.
[Found by danrudy here.]

Koko and Fitz try to change the climate.  Fleisher’s “Out of the Inkwell” series was nothing less than bizarre, and this is a good ‘un.

How ’bout some Flo & Eddie. Nobody got the joke, and the Turtles were fairly successful.

Neil Young’s “Powderfinger” was one of my favorites.  Never stopped to wonder why.

We don’t do many polls here, but we like to hear from you quiet ones from time to time. There’s no risk, your votes are completely anonymous. Just click as many as you like.  Consider it your contribution to the TR Steerage Committee.

Saturday Matinee – MJ, Freedom, Rain, Smack, Frankie & Johnny & Satchmo

Saturday, 27 June 2009

Okay, let’s get it out of the way.  I’m talking Michael Jackson.
Click here and here.  Done.

Freedom. Worth fighting for.

Ivan Maximov‘s “Rain Down From Above.”  (Found here. For previously posted/linked Maximov animations,  click here.)

Set up smackdown [via].  These guys show up in a couple of other videos, so I suspect it was staged.  I thought it was funny.

Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers live, 1956, and not lip-synching.  (MJ’s dad certainly took notice of Lymon’s talent and success.)  Diana Ross’ 1981 version, complete with Frankie’s eye-roll, is here.

This is bizarre.  Louis Armstrong and Johnny Cash playing a 1930’s Jimmie Rogers song.  The guy who posted this to the Utoobage added this comment:

“I would have never guessed, but Louis Armstrong was a guest on the Johnny Cash Show. This and the story about Satchmo and Jimmie Rogers show how diverse musical tastes these men had and once again that music is a great connector.
This is from episode 38, Oct., 28, 1970 and must be one of Satchmo’s last performances. He was such a great performer right to the end and the Nashville audience and Johnny just loved him.
Louis Armstrong cracks everybody up at the start of the song: ‘Let’s give it to ’em in black and white.'”

Other news. Two folks on our blogroll could use some words of encouragement.

Chiqui had a stroke, and is recuperating, although he’s lost some use of his hands.  His english is almost as bad as my spanish, but you might want to leave a comment here.  Here’s an alternate link to a (poor) spanish-to-english translation: here.

Crotchety Old Man has some other nasty maladies, but I’m sure he’d like to hear from you, too.  Click here to leave a comment.
