Thursday Open Thread | Christmas Jams 2019

Christmas candles 84Silver Bells” is a classic Christmas song, composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.

“Silver Bells” was first performed by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell in the motion picture The Lemon Drop Kid, filmed in Julyโ€“August 1950 and released in March 1951.[1] The first recorded version was by Bing Crosby and Carol Richards, released by Decca Records in October 1950.[2] After the Crosby and Richards recording became popular, Hope and Maxwell were called back in late 1950 to refilm a more elaborate production of the song.

“Silver Bells” started out as the questionable “Tinkle Bells.” Said Evans, “We never thought that tinkle had a double meaning until Jay went home and his [first] wife said, ‘Are you out of your mind? Do you know what the word tinkle is?'” The word is child’s slang for urination.

  2. #CrimingWhileWhite White man commit crimes against America and McConnell will move to dismiss charges before he’s heard the evidence. Glaring white privilege. But poor immigrants fleeing violence and seeking a better life in America are put in cages, denied basic human rights

    Imo the republicans fear the end of white politics.

    They know demographics are not in their favor…..the focus has expanded and now will center communities of color.

    They are freaking out.

    While the other top-tier candidates are fighting to be anointed the purest and win the approval of a small fraction of voters, Joe Biden is out here talking to the majority of voters about the main thing they care about, getting rid of Trump.

    Trump is not going to live forever.

    What will happen when he is no longer on TV every day to spread his lies and defend his corruption?

    And how are his supporters and enablers going to explain themselves to the world in the years after he’s gone?

      1. There will be others. Sarah Palin begat Trump and Trump will beget someone else.
      2. His supporters don’t care. They will never explain themselves. They do not believe they have to.

      • Liza says:

        The greedy, criminal scum is always with us. History proves that. Get used to it. Recognize what they are and treat them as such.

    Listening again to Lindsey Graham. He has sold out the United States and is undermining our intelligence community. Trump and Putin are happy with him. Someday we will find out why he has turned on American values.

    The mainstream media has been waiting since April for former vice president Joe Biden to crumble. Now he has several advantages

    @1kecko @josecanyousee @gryking Don’t you ever lecture people of color how to vote. 88% of Black People voted for Hillary. 30 million of us (Black/Latino/Asian/Native) voted for Hillary. We understand the brutality of white nationalism because we live it. Now go lecture the 57% of whites who voted for Trump.

    I don’t care how much sage and incense you burn, how many James Baldwin books you read or how much vegan food you eat if your “activism” consists of sitting on social shitting on folks like Barack Obama and Kamala Harris while being relatively quiet about Trump…you’re a fraud.

    • Liza says:

      Ha ha. My gut feeling is they wouldn’t get along at all. Just a gut feeling.

      But no one should underestimate the importance of the VP this time around. If one of these elderly people win the nomination, and it appears they will, the VP is more important than ever to the voters.
