Sunday Open Thread

For all the victims and the families of Hurricane Matthew.

“Hard Times Come Again No More”

Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh hard times come again no more.

Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh hard times come again no more.

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay,
There are frail forms fainting at the door;
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh hard times come again no more.

There’s a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away,
With a worn heart whose better days are o’er:
Though her voice would be merry, ’tis sighing all the day,
Oh hard times come again no more.


Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave,
Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh hard times come again no more.

      All of this faux outrage is really getting on my nerves. Trump’s candidacy has never been about anything other than a seething hatred for President Obama and buying an extension on white supremacy, presumably hoping to save it from its inevitable demise.

    • Liza says:

      Pence is worried about getting painted with the same tar brush. He probably has been fantasizing about being a presidential candidate himself.

    LOL That nasty-looking, double-speak Ben Stein on CBC This Morning, decrying Trump and calling for him to quit.

    Why the GOP White men are having a conniption
