Saturday Open Thread | Christmas Jams

beautiful-christmas-candles-9Recorded in 1985, The Spirit of Christmas finds Ray Charles performing a variety of holiday favorites with vocal assistance from the Raelettes and an appearance by jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. The ten tracks mix standards and originals, including “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and the ballad “That Spirit of Christmas,” which was featured in the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. The Spirit of Christmas is perfect background music for any holiday celebration.

    God, some people are just so deliberately(?) dumb…ugh..

    Have not watched the View in over 10 years, but these new women they have…I don’t even know who they are or what to make of them…just ridiculous…everyone’s so shallow and simply jigging for a paycheck…

    Listen to the one saying that celebrities should perform at Trump’s inauguration …to show ‘unity’…LOL..

    She says until Trump proves that he’s not bad …
    …Lady, where have you been…have you seen who he’s stacking his banana republic ‘cabinet’ with …? Have you heard the evil he and his fellow white supremacists are spewing and threatening…where have you been as he pushed his birther crap for years…And let’s not even speak about that evil sh*t Mike Pence…

    They should find vile Scott Baio and the other Baldwin brother ..and that other immigrant guy that now does commercials…that spoke at their convention …

    Any real celebrity that shows up for Donald Trump must be shunned and mocked forever…

    Don’t let any of them weasel themselves into this crap under the guise of ‘unity’…

    Does Donald Trump …or any of his ardent and unabashedly white supremacist cronies look like they’re interested in ‘unity’…

    All they want is a celebrity-filled event to stroke their/his ego…

    Deny Trump every ounce of anything good…

    Make and keep him the dreadful, poisonous pariah he is…

    That Aretha Franklin is even giving it a thought, is disgraceful….shame on her…ugh…

    What folks won’t do for money…have some self-respect lady…

    My people never fail to disappoint…

        I’m keeping my eyes peeled and keeping tabs on everyone and anyone who as much as tries to be nice to or even remotely tries to normalize this awful man and his band of merry white supremacists…or tries to gloss over the crap that he’s done for years and continues to now …

        Don’t play along with him and his crap now – and 4 years from now try to once again retroactively feign outrage at him and his crap…

        This is how they let him slide ..even cheered him on for years as he pushed his Birther crap…said nothing, didn’t push back, and instead socialized and played golf with him and talked about how ‘gracious’ he was and what good kids he raised…even as he actively and maliciously pushed the damaging narratives about the historic President…a husband and a father to 2 minor daughters…and fueled the baseless hate against this young family…

        And only when he became a threat to them and their own ambitions several months ago… only then did they all start to retroactively feign outrage at his birther crap …and now they’ve already switched back once again to conveniently forgetting…

        I just can’t with some of these folks…
