It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well.

If you check out the lyrics to Paisley's songs like Southern Comfort Zone and American Saturday Night, he does a pretty good job expressing ... well pretty liberal ideas.

The nearest I get to “country music” is The Grateful Dead, so I’ll have to take your word for it.

My post above was prompted by my memory of what “the good ol’ boys and girls” had to say about The Dixie Chicks, when they dissed Dubya not so many years ago.

I dig -- this was a part of a conversation I had earlier today.  American Saturday Night is basically about immigration without necessarily coming out and saying so.  Southern Comfort Zone came from his experience in Paris as a 'minority'...

Consider:
I have walked the streets of Rome, I have been to foreign lands
I know what it's like to talk and have nobody understand
I have seen the Eiffel Tower lit up on a Paris night
I have kissed a West Coast girl underneath the Northern Lights
I know what it's like to be the only one like me,
To take a good hard look around and be in the minority
And I miss my Tennessee home
I can see the ways that I've grown
I can't see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort zone


My appreciation for country is more the older stuff...but I appreciate this after I gave it another look :)

Trump voter fraud commission is sued — by one of its own commissioners

Quote
A Democratic member of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity filed suit against the commission in federal court in Washington, D.C. on Thursday morning, alleging that its Republican leadership has intentionally excluded him from deliberations and violated federal transparency laws. The commission has been sued more times (eight, including the new filing) than it has officially convened for meetings (two times).

The suit, filed by Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, accuses the commission of violating the Federal Advisory Commission Act, which, among other things, requires that advisory committees be bipartisan and sets transparency requirements for them. “Everything we are doing is absolutely perpendicular to that,” Dunlap charged in an interview. “We aren’t inviting the public to participate. We aren’t transparent. And we aren’t even working together at all. My real fear is that this commission will offer policy recommendations that have not been properly vetted by all of the commissioners.”

Lawyers are certainly making money with the Trump “Administration” in the White House.

I have zero expertise in this sort of thing, but you may want to research how Dan Savage managed to redefine the word “santorum,” as described in the following Wikipedia article:

Campaign for the neologism "santorum"

Quote
The campaign for the neologism "santorum" started with a contest held in May 2003 by Dan Savage, a sex columnist and LGBT rights activist. Savage asked his readers to create a definition for the word "santorum" in response to then-U.S. Senator Rick Santorum's views on homosexuality, and comments about same sex marriage. In his comments, Santorum had stated that "n every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be." Savage announced the winning entry, which defined "santorum" as "the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex". He created a web site, spreadingsantorum.com (and santorum.com), to promote the definition, which became a top internet search result displacing the Senator's official website on many search engines, including Google, Yahoo! Search, and Bing.

U.S. hate crimes rise for second straight year: FBI

Quote
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of hate crimes committed in the United States rose in 2016 for the second consecutive year, with African-Americans, Jews and Muslims targeted in many of the incidents, the FBI said on Monday in an annual report.

There were 6,121 hate crime incidents recorded last year, an almost 5 percent rise from 2015 and a 10 percent increase from 2014, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Hate Crimes Statistics report said. It did not give a reason for the rise.

(Bold type is mine.)

Here’s the link: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-hatecrime-fbi/u-s-hate-crimes-rise-for-second-straight-year-fbi-idUSKBN1DD2BA

I think I can give a reason for the rise.

Not specifically related to Trump (any more so than anything else in American politics right now), but it struck me today that it's a real shame there's nobody on the "not batshit crazy conservative" side pulling the strings of real schism in the GOP, with the kerfluffle surrounding Roy Moore and the general rabid hatred for Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan on account of their not being quite crazy enough. It seems like the perfect time to start astroturfing a synthetic "grassroots" movement to vote for some kind of MAGA Party. Play up all the ways the Republican establishment is stabbing Real 'Murricans in the back by failing to round up and imprison, deport, and/or execute anyone who isn't white, straight, male, or Christian enough. It's plainly evident that there's no turning these people back from where they are, and the least destructive way to avert actual disaster is to stop treating them as if they're within the spectrum of reasonable politics. Give them exactly what they want -- an openly extremist party, but one totally controlled by cynics and doomed to failure -- just to mop up all those MAGA votes and throw them in the trash. I'd do it, but I left my fifty billion dollars in my other pants.

The Real ‘Murricans may be doing that job all by themselves. There are, after all, a growing number of Republican incumbents who have already decided to not run for reelection next year.

One of those incumbents, to my surprise, is the “moderate” from my congressional district. In this particular case, Mr. Moderate is so popular it’s extremely unlikely he could lose the GOP primary to a rabid conservative. And, after having being reelected several times by sizable margins, the Democrats have yet to find a viable candidate, who actually lives within the congressional district, to run against him. The consensus opinion in the district is that Mr. Moderate has had his fill of the crazies in his party, and just wants to move on with his life.

No collusion whatsoever

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/360189-trump-tweeted-about-podesta-emails-15-minutes-after-wikileaks-asked

Quote
President Trump tweeted about the hacked emails of then-Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta approximately 15 minutes after WikiLeaks requested his son Donald Trump Jr. to, The Atlantic reported Monday.

"Trump Jr. did not respond to this message. But just 15 minutes after it was sent...Donald Trump himself tweeted," according to the report.

While it does seem very smoking gun, I'm leaning toward coincidence. I mean, Donald Trump understanding and following a very simple instruction? Nah  :lulz:
