Here’s hoping that tomorrow will be peaceful day as folks in the US exercise their franchise. Whichever candidate wins, remember that it’s the United States of America. You’re all on the same team and it takes American teamwork to make the American dream work. And also remember that November is always the best time to choose a turkey (sorry, couldn’t resist)

Thanks a lot for the invitation!

May I hope to see more entertaining supporting films like yesterday's, in which some of the incumbent president's so-called patriots wanted to ram an election bus support vehicle with a pickup?

With the popcorn it is going to be difficult because of the current trade relations between the US and Europe. Most of the maize that is grown here is used to generate energy ...

A friend of mine has hacked the email account of one of the candidates and catched the planned soundtrack for the after show party, guess which side:

Tomorrow will be fine. Wednesday might be the start of a new Civil War though.
You might very well be correct in that. Thats why they say to stock up on the 3 B's. Beans, bullets, and bullion.

Cheerful little number.

Well, I learned the trade from Piggy Knowles
Sing Sing Tommy Shay, boys
God used me as a hammer, boys
To beat his weary drum today
Hoist that rag!

Sun is up, the world is flat
Damn good address for a rat
The smell of blood, the drone of flies
You know what to do if the baby cries
Hoist that rag!

Well, we stick our fingers in the ground
Heave and turn the world around
Smoke is blacking out the sun
At night I pray and clean my gun
The cracked bell rings and the ghost bird sings
And the gods go begging here
So just open fire when you hit the shore
All is fair in love and war
Hoist that rag!

Canada already elected a turkey, sorry, could not resist. MAGA all the way

Dear smalloffsetpressexperts,

might be i get the message in your favourite song wrong, if so, sorry for this reply:

As a child in the 70ies of the last century about 30-40 year old teachers told me in Germany at school about Martin Luther King´s „Dream“ and i took with me for the rest of my life that he was side by side playing in the same league with Mahatma Gandhi as the (may be only) both most integer and worthiest to be respected and last but not least with outstanding intelligence political acting people i have ever read, listen, seen (in television documentarys) and heard about ever since then…

I am quite sure, that Dr. Martin Luther King would not be amused to see himself misused for a „cultural message“ in which is declared what is wrong with an other religion like the islam to push up a bad mood against them and divide his nation furthermore and which is shared in a silly affirmative way with feeling harassed by the current political and economic circumstances and finding themselves victimized by it to their own impotence in the face of the complexity of the prevailing problems consciously longing for a leader who serves their comparatively (not only with Martin Luther Kings) lower instincts.

Now it seems me, the childs in the US have to learn totally wrong lessons about morality, responsability and patriotism by getting presented a role model which only interest is to feed his own ego and economical succsess.

It is not the current president of the US or his "style" that scares me, he is just a logical accident in your cultural history, but that about half of the people of (still) a super power like the US likes and vote such a totally free of empathy character is what scares me, because it reminds to a time in Germany starting 87 years ago, where a “protected mob” (like that ones they had tried to rammed a campain bus) is on the way to determine the way of life in your villages and cities.

I wish you all the very best next morning and the weeks after, really!

Yes you misunderstand, it is a plea for peace!!!!! MLK wanted peace and I loved his words. Face facts Muslims hate Jews and infidels like myself catholic. I do not understand all this hate was the song meaning, You bring up Germany and I curse the way some Germans had a dream to be pure, I worry America is heading that way with socialism. I find your judgmental words about Trump is your version of the media reports only. I could go on but hopefully you realize it is a plea for peace in the world, I wrote it and produced it in my home.

You bring up the Biden bus, I suggest watch this version no networks in the USA
You really need USA history lessons. I have lived it.

Democrats are the original slave owners, Republications fought to free them. Drink that in and picture Democrat run cities now, ring a bell?

Thanks for your reply I found it well done from your point of view. I see it different.

Thank you also for your reply, i will take it as a virtual handshaking, if you agree?


Yes you misunderstand, it is a plea for peace!!!!!

I wanted to believe that in the first half of the video, I admit that I pressed play with a bit of suspicion, but then asked myself whether at least Tom Petty's singing could be accepted as an influence, until I came across this teaching that Islam includes in itself a threat l at least interpreted as a wrong message: Crazy, desperate, nasty weirdos picking only the wrong points from their “manuals” for a justification of their doings are everywhere in all groups and communities ...

Sorry, but I think, although your skills as a musician is not without any talent in my opinion, you are failed with your approach of a plea. Might be real poetry/music/art must reach a more transzendental level of a discribed or “felt” motive to carry away others with you, and there is to made a decision first, I mean, do you want to make music by expressing yourself or answering to what drives you or do you want to formulate a message and uses music as a tool for that. (exaggerated: Creating miracles or hammer teaching “propaganda”) I am not able to play any note with any instrument, but had some exhibitions of my visual art and think the “problem” is the same…



You really need USA history lessons. I have lived it.

Well, i think first of all i do need english language lessons… 😉

That´s why i am reading and partizipating here in this forum (in addition to professional orientation), to get in touch with the real „unfiltered“ (by media) US today



Democrats are the original slave owners, Republications fought to free them.

You are right, i did not know that, i will do a research when i am through with the history of my country, that is a lot of… The republications today are more interested in law and order i get here from the media...



In the video that shows the „Pickup-Biden Campaign-crasher“ are very much words and very view picture to see. I saw other (more) pictures, but do not find them anymore. Would you agree that neither you and me were there as it happens?

What i wanted to discribe and for what i took this as an example i tried in my post before and get therefore a „well done“ from your side and keith1 (thanks for that keith, only a „I ´d tears in my eyes by reading“ from "D Ink Man" - which posts here Printing Evolution - Thirty Years Past to Present in one of the hottest debates on this planet has won my heart forever - could top my vain proud 😉…), so i think i did not failed completly with my "message":

It is not only in the US to see that (mostly national and conservative "clothed") populism is coming up to grab the power and with my german history background i have reasons to fear that more than crazy killers. And you too!



Ah, politics, religion, science facts…

So happy, that art (and in there music…) is still the island where emotion and passion is all time the right place for as well as a point for restarting your soul by mentally concentration and discovering new perspectives! Please don't label me as an esoteric weirdo: Love is also an oppurtunity 😉



Seems that Trump is winning again, the good news in that is, that your next civil war will be postpone yet? 😊

I haven't watched the video. But just reading that "Dems are the original slave owners, Reps fought to free them." Which I already knew. And I glad this is waking more people to the history. An slavery started a LONG time before there were Dems and Reps. We can go back to the Egytians when they were building the pyramids and them using the Jewish people, and I'm sure there are many more stories before that, that was never written down throughout history all over the globe. It's all about power and who seems to have it. But still the bigger issue is not slavery, it's where one person for whatever reason feels they are better than another person...that s**t needs to stop NOW! No one is better than another! I believe we are all equal. Now, we all have made certain decisions in our lives that have lead us to one place or another, but we are all the same. We have feelings, we care about someone/thing and we want to be heard and loved.

The scientific consensus is, that is a (widely held) myth.

American exceptionalism? ;-)

Personally I think that whenever people are stratified in groups according to some characteristic (e.g. race, religion, politics, etc) and then treated as monoliths (e.g. the black vote, the left or the right, etc.) then you are going to have problems. You are no longer dealing with individuals you are dealing with abstractions. And it's easier to commit atrocities in thought or action against abstractions than to actual individual people. It also encourages and perpetuates dualistic thinking - which is usually not a good thing. You see examples of this all the time in US (and other country) news/opinion outlets.

On a related sidebar. One thing that I've always been intrigued by is the difference in how crimes are reported in the media.
In the US - the race of the bad guy is typically stated in reporting. That, for example, subtly ties race to crime and reinforces social stratification and monolithic thinking.
In most European countries - the race of the bad guy is typically not stated in reporting. Because the race of the bad guy is usually not relevant.

Now, we all have made certain decisions in our lives that have lead us to one place or another, but we are all the same. We have feelings, we care about someone/thing and we want to be heard and loved.

Maybe that's why some people turn to crime. They'll finally be wanted.

Good discussion, I am also a German/American and suffered some name calling for that, no big deal I was not in WW2. My relatives were and fought for the USA and wounded. I take pride in the USA. I could go on about how the blue side will open our borders and tax people to provide free everything for them for the sake of votes to keep them in office,. Would you allow someone to walk into your front door and demand you take care of my family and pay for us. I am working hard to provide for my family and now my taxes go up and that will affect my Business. Look on you tube for tours of Baltimore City and see how divested we are. I have a saying "Give a Red a pile of bricks he will build a city, Give a Blue a city they will turn it into a pile bricks" take a tour and see. It is easy to live some where else in the world and criticize the USA by watching the news that is owned by Amazon, Google and Twitter etc., I live it and see the truth.

The news media here are not allowed to say what race committed a crime or a murder, But most are recorded on video now and known.

One last Note:

Police: Car reportedly driven by Biden staffer 'may be' at fault for collision caught in viral Biden campaign bus video​
