Saturday Night Live …. “Election Week Cold Open – Kate McKinnon …. “!!


~~November 14, 2016~~ 


Singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”

A very classy end to the skits presented by Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin

Ironic and poignant.

Listen to the words.



After a world-historical terrible week like this one, how do you open a comedy show? Saturday Night Live opted for something spare and moving, putting Kate McKinnon on stage alone with a piano to perform a stripped-down version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in full Hillary Clinton garb.

Singing the best-known song by the just-deceased singer-songwriter while dressed as the just-defeated presidential candidate sounds like a little much – and it is! – but it sort of works, not least because Cohen’s last verse, with lines like “I told the truth, I didn’t come to fool ya,” are surprisingly on-point.
McKinnon followed the song by looking at the camera, teary-eyed, and saying,

“I’m not giving up, and neither should you.”

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”


It’s been a long week, barely five days after America decided against the most qualified, prepared candidate and chose the alternative.

I’m still numb and shocked.

It’s affected friends and family.

In my humble opinion, it won’t get any better.

Look at the choices for Chief of Staff and White House strategist.

If you don’t know, look them up.

Study, educate yourself.

Don’t normalize the abnormal!

I don’t have the spirit Hillary showed in her concession speech.

‘I’m not ready to make nice”

Thoughts for today, #271 …. “Who Wouldn’t Feel the Same?”!!


~~October 22, 2015~~ 


Almost as long as there has been life, war has been a part of it.

Mankind continues to wage war even though the consequences often breed nothing but misery.

However, when a person is called to defend his or her country, or protect other defenseless people, it is his duty to fight.

There is no question that there is evil in the world and we must not rest on our laurels and say it is none of our business.

We cannot stand by and watch while others are being persecuted.

It is the duty of mankind to uphold justice.

To start the day …. “Wishing and hoping”!!

~~September 28, 2014~~ 

A combined message: war, peace, rich folks, soldiers, timeless.

I found this graphic this morning as I browsed through the postings in Facebook. The reason I chose to post it is that even though this man lived from 1912 through 1967, I consider these words timeless. 

I assume that he lived through WWII, Korea and Vietnam and all the conflicts and “skirmishes” that happened during his life time. 

Yet, these words could very easily apply to our current times. 

If only ….. this would happen. 


“As it appears in …. “

Woodrow Wilson “Woody” Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967) was an American singer-songwriter and folk musician whose musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children’s songs, ballads and improvised works. He frequently performed with the slogan This Machine Kills Fascists displayed on his guitar. His best-known song is “This Land Is Your Land.”

Many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress. Such songwriters as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Hunter, Harry Chapin, John Mellencamp, Pete Seeger, Andy Irvine, Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg, Jerry Garcia, Jay Farrar, Bob Weir, Jeff Tweedy, Bob Childers and Tom Paxton have acknowledged Guthrie as a major influence.

Many of his songs are about his experiences in the Dust Bowl era during the Great Depression when Guthrie traveled with displaced farmers from Oklahoma to California and learned their traditional folk and blues songs, earning him the nickname the “Dust Bowl Troubadour.”

Throughout his life Guthrie was associated with United States Communist groups, though he was seemingly not a member of any.
