I am a big fan of Roy Zimmerman. I had the good fortune to see him perform in Ashland, OR. I also had the chance to speak with him when I bought his CD.

Like me, he is of both Swedish and German ancestry. He remarked that because of that he vacillates between suicide and world domination. I thanked him for talking about the issues of "our people".

Here he is talking about MAGA sung to the tune of a Smokey Robinson hit.

    I love that one too. When you first posted it a while back, I meant to watch it later but I forgot about it. You've turned me into a fan of Roy Zimmerman and Co.

    Once in a while, like this morning, I read through the posts here for my entertainment, but I doubt very much if I'll be joining any more political discussions. I can handle most of what life throws at me, and I can handle opinions that differ from mine, but I absolutely cannot handle the illogic that's regularly on display here by one of the participants.

    Peace.

    Donna,
    I intend to post videos and the work of other humorists and entertainers. Check in occasionally for the latest Moment of Zim and whatever else I deem worthy.

    Of course, you don't have to engage in discussions with other posters. You can post your commentary or link to news report (as an article) and let the detractors flail in response to the facts.

    I know I can do that, but that's exactly how you get sucked back into debating them. So I'll pass on that.

    Btw, I posted the Zimmerman 'socialist" video on Facebook.

    Happy Independence Day

    Heather Cox Richardson-Author

    "And on July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, declaring: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."

    For all the fact that the congressmen got around the sticky problem of Black and Indigenous enslavement by defining "men" as "white men," and for all that it never crossed their minds that women might also have rights, the Declaration of Independence was an astonishingly radical document. In a world that had been dominated by a small class of rich men for so long that most people simply accepted that they should be forever tied to their status at birth, a group of upstart legislators clinging to the edge of a continent declared that no man was born better than any other. America was founded on the radical idea that all men are created equal.

    What the founders declared self-evident was not so clear eighty-seven years later, when southern white men went to war to guarantee that Black Americans, Indigenous Americans, Chinese, Mexicans, and Irish would be permanently locked into a lower status than whites. In that era, equality had become a "proposition," rather than "self-evident." "Four score and seven years ago," Abraham Lincoln reminded Americans, "our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." In 1863, Lincoln explained, the Civil War was "testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure."

    It did, of course. The Confederate rebellion failed. The United States endured, and as people of different races, incomes, genders, and abilities began to demand that the nation honor its founding principles, Americans began to expand the idea that all men are created equal.

    But just as in the 1850s, we are now, once again, facing a rebellion against the idea of equality, as a few wealthy men seek to reshape America into a nation in which certain people are better than others.
    The men who adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, pledged their "Lives, [their] Fortunes and [their] sacred Honor" to defend the idea of human equality, however limited they were in executing it. Ever since then, Americans from all walks of life have sacrificed their own fortunes, honor, and even their lives for that principle. Lincoln reminded Civil War Americans of those sacrifices when he urged the people of his era to "take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

    Words to live by in 2021.
    Happy Independence Day, everyone.

    I have to say, this is absurdism in as brilliant a form as I can imagine, especially, for a boomer. The mellow tones of that Temptations' megahit, paired with those words. Oy veh!

    Separate the poem from the tune and you have vile, unadulterated hate speech. Brilliantly absurd.

    Most of all, this is as concise a declaration of the Swampcult Blue MAGA myth as I've seen. As time goes on, I consider this thinking, more and more, as 6,000 year old earth Creationism set to politics.

    Read Genesis 1 literally, with a scientific mindset, and you get Creationism. View the 020 election with a progressive, woke Swampcult Blue MAGA mindset and you get this poem.

    Absolutely brilliant!
