Thanks

SSome Days It's Tough To Remember All The Things We Have To Be Thankful For



I Guess I'll Be Thankful You stopped By... I Know I Haven't In A While...

Been Busy , But I am definitely too blessed to stay stressed...



My favorite crap activity last week was probably watching the actual collapse of the Attorney General in front of his admirers...


yeah I got a jolt of sick pleasure from it...

sort of like how Rummy and pals must have felt while watching their closed circuit satellite camera feed of the Abu Ghraib prison pyramids...

It was a remarkable media moment, one not gloated over or enjoyed enough... too quickly overlooked by the media...

Mukasey apparently can't even believe his own b.s and hopefully you saw it when he passed out mid-sentence, the other night...

It was in the middle of a speech to a bunch of lawyer creeps called "The Federalist Society",

It's a cabal of "conservative" legal minions bent on dismantling your legal rights that Dick Cheney refers to as "a model of thoughtful, reasoned dialogue" ...

Which really means: "hungry sadistic wolf sharks with no morals"

These are the master minds of mayhem who helped out Gonzales with his torture memos, and don't believe in the burdens of habeas corpus, or antitrust laws, laws protecting consumers or the environment, the civil rights act, meaningful worker health and safety regulations, and the likes...


During the speech they were getting liquored up and gnashing their teeth into some red meat while Mukasey blithered on. It was rote exercise in typical talking points, in which he was insisting that the DOJ under the Bush admin's run acted lawfully and "professionally"...

Soon, Mukasey smelled his own bull shit...

...and then, with the putrid stink from his lying breath driving his conscience mad, the conscience decided the only honorable thing to do would be to lose consciousness...



Mukasey has reasons to be revolted by his own role in so many of the most egregious examples of the Bush DOJ's disregard for things like Habeas Corpus, and the rule of law. Mukasey has endorsed numerous unconstitutional acts and in 2005 even had complaints from dozens of his court appointed bodyguards who said Mukasey made them do his personal errands like "carry groceries, luggage and golf clubs".

What a fucking asshole

anyhow

here's a random "thanx for giving me what I didn't want" mix...

I know there were plenty days that the Ikettes weren't thankful for...but that doesn't mean I'm not thankful for their sweet sounds...

The Ikettes - I'm So Thankful

How about wise old Ray Davies, he's probably thankful that when Chrissy Hynde used to kick his ass around the house, and when those muggers shot him a few years ago in New Orleans that he lived both times...

Ray Davies - Thanksgiving Day


and who can help but appreciate Sam & Dave

Sam & Dave - Thank You




This next song has the same name, but the track just ain't as good as the one above IMHO... but I am still thankful for the Cougar...

he's still an American wise ass after all these years... and now with his teenage kid playing guitar at some shows for golly sakes...

John Cougar Mellencamp - Thank You

here's a release worth being thankful for... if a bit hard to track down thanks to yer pals at the RIAA...

In case ya missed it Cassettes Won't Listen mashed up some pre-leaked G'n'R tracks from Chinese Democracy and added in some Ludacris vocals...

inane but what isn't these daze...

here's the first track

Ludacris Democracy - Move Bitch


This one is even dumber , or at least funnier, and comes up when you search Amazon for a link to buy Chinese Democracy...No Guns Just Rose



Anyhow...

I gotta get on the road, headed south through the central valley and onto Los Angeles... here's a few more for the road...

So Looks like the price of gas went down a few bucks since I was last talking at ya hereI'm sure ex- San Francisco Cab driver Jim Campilongo is thanful for that.

You can hear Jim on this track tearing it up with Rochester NY's faith funkateers The Campbell Brothers...

The Campbell Brothers - Thank You Jesus
