Tuesday Open Thread | Christmas Jams 2017

beautiful-christmas-candles-8Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) is a Christmas holiday song originally sung by Darlene Love and included on the 1963 Christmas compilation album, A Christmas Gift for You from Philles Records. The song was written by Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry along with Phil Spector, with the intentions of being sung by Ronnie Spector of The Ronettes. According to Darlene Love, Ronnie Spector was not able to put as much emotion into the song as needed. Instead, Love was brought into the studio to record the song which became a big success over time and one of Love’s signature tunes.

In December 2010, Rolling Stone magazine ranked “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” first on its list of The Greatest Rock and Roll Christmas Songs, saying that “nobody can match Love’s emotion and sheer vocal power.”

    Just look at the return on investment for these corporations. Legislators sell out and they sell out cheap. Congress is a swamp badly in need of draining.

    Who are we as a country? Time to decide
    Sally Q. Yates,
    Opinion contributor Published 3:15 a.m. ET Dec. 19, 2017

    Stand up and speak out on America’s core founding values. We are not living in ordinary times, and it’s not enough to admire them from afar.

    Over the course of our nation’s history, we have faced inflection points — times when we had to decide who we are as a country and what we stand for. Now is such a time. Beyond policy disagreements and partisan gamesmanship, there is something much more fundamental hanging in the balance. Will we remain faithful to our country’s core values?

    Our founding documents set forth the values that make us who we are, or at least who we aspire to be. I say aspire to be because we haven’t always lived up to our founding ideals — even at the time of our founding. When the Declaration of Independence proclaimed that all men are created equal, hundreds of thousands of African Americans were being enslaved by their fellow Americans.

    Senate GOP wary of ending Russia probes, despite pressure
    BY ALEXANDER BOLTON – 12/18/17 08:12 PM EST

    Senate Republicans are showing no signs they will wrap up their Russia investigations soon despite pressure from the White House.

    They’re also pushing back on the prospect that President Trump will fire special counsel Robert Mueller, which they fear would spark a backlash that could hurt the GOP in next fall’s midterm elections.

    “Everybody knows that if Trump fired Mueller it would be interpreted by everybody who writes about this as evidence that he’s done something wrong,” said a strategist close to the Senate GOP leadership.

    Basically everything can be explained by Mueller assembling an all-star team from some of the best talent available and Trump prioritizing sycophantic loyalty above all else including competence.

    just so folks understand why Trump lawyers so freaked out that Mueller (legally) had transition emails, it’s bc Trump staffers didn’t know FBI already had the emails and therefore they felt free to lie to FBI during interviews.
