Carl Perkins' Cadillac

Carl Perkins' Cadillac:



by Drive-By Truckers

lyrics excerpt:
Life ain't nothing but a blending up of all the ups and downs
Dammit Elvis, don't you know
You made your Mama so proud
Before you ever made that record, before there ever was a Sun
Before you ever lost that Cadillac that Carl Perkins won

This post was scheduled before the stunning news of the attempted coup incited by our current president. from Wikipedia:
"The riots and storming of the Capitol have been described as insurrection, sedition, and domestic terrorism. Some sources have labeled it as an attempted coup d'├ętat. The incident was the first time the Capitol had been overrun since the 1814 burning of Washington by the British during the War of 1812."
My heart hurts. I'm in shock. If I can gather my thoughts I may post again later today.

  1. I am sorry for you & your country as to what is happening right now - domestic terrorism. This isn't democracy working, & guess which countries rejoice in it?

  3. 1812 the Capitol stormed by enemy factions during a time of war. Never would we believe that domestic terrorists would storm the Capitol. Certainly we don't come close to our parents/grandparents known as the Greatest Generation. They were called to war to fight Fascism.

  4. Nice. We need a good song today. I responded to you comment on my blog. Not sure you'll see it but I am worried about what comes next. And still so many people in congress followed through by questioning election results. They can spin it how they like, but the truth is they are doing it because of him. How can anyone give him support after yesterday? And by questioning election results, you are sounding more like you want big government, not supporting states rights which is a hallmark of the Republican party. Enough babbling from me.

    1. I agree. I just saw a tweet saying the most dangerous time is when you're trying to get the abuser out of the house :( And yet some people are now claiming it was antifa and not trump supporters [screams] They buy whatever he sells. Scary, indeed.

  5. You are courageous to try to talk about the disaster in Washington yesterday. What I find important is that Trump not only called on his minions to come to Washington, promising them he would walk with them (ha), and then winding them up to go attack the capitol building — he also should have been responsible for reinforcing the protection of the capitol and the legislators. BUT HE DIDN’T arrange for police or National Guard to be there — as he did heavily when the protestors were peaceful but not doing his bidding.

    1. I'm not courageous at all. I just think it's important to discuss these issues. Trump has been whipping up his minions into increasing frenzy for years now.
