Joey Dee & The Starlighters - Shout

These movie clips don't do justice to the excitement that this group could generate when on their home turf. I once drove the 180 miles to New York on a friday night just to stand three deep at the bar of the Peppermint Lounge. Caught them again a year later when they were the homecoming block party band at IU.

"I welcome their hatred" FDR @ MSG 10/31/1936

For twelve years this Nation was afflicted with hear-nothing, see-nothing, do-nothing Government. The Nation looked to Government but the Government looked away. Nine mocking years with the golden calf and three long years of the scourge! Nine crazy years at the ticker and three long years in the breadlines! Nine mad years of mirage and three long years of despair! Powerful influences strive today to restore that kind of government with its doctrine that that Government is best which is most indifferent.

For nearly four years you have had an Administration which instead of twirling its thumbs has rolled up its sleeves. We will keep our sleeves rolled up.

We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.

Fun With Fundies: The Scopes Trial 2.0

By OTOOLEFAN

The Scopes Trial was nearly 100 years ago and yet, here we are in the 21st Century and this battle still goes on, even on Twitter. It's discouraging though not surprising that there are people who still unquestionably declare the world to be roughly only 6000 years old; a belief not even shared by most mainstream Christian denominations, let alone religious skeptics. How can we expect people to accept climate change when they're walking around (fully erect, I might add) with foolish notions lodged in their brain about the age of our planet itself?  But I guess we must remember that this is the same country where more people believe in angels than Evolution.

The following is an exchange I had on Twitter with a Fundamentalist Christian from Texas:

OTOOLEFAN: Man up? You're the one who goes around bragging about blocking girls on Twitter!

bill453: I blocked her for mocking God.

OTOOLEFAN: How Christian.

bill453: When reason is repeatedly rejected we turn them over to Satan.

bill453: Who are you to judge what is Christian?

OTOOLEFAN: How old do you believe the Earth to be?

bill453: About 6 thousand years just like the Bible says.

OTOOLEFAN: Fossils are just a trick, right? Flintstones is a documentary?

bill453: Why would I think fossils are a trick? They are formed by catastrophic events like the world wide flood.

OTOOLEFAN: Don't you know that we have fossils that go back MILLIONS of years?

bill453: no they don't.

OTOOLEFAN: Please tell me WHERE in the Bible it says how old the Earth is?

bill453: God created the earth a fully developed planet just like He created Adam a fully developed man.

OTOOLEFAN: You don't believe we have fossils that go back longer than 6,000 years?? What grade did you get in Science?

bill453: I did not say the earth is exactly 6k years old, I said about and I am not the final authority, the Bible is.

OTOOLEFAN: Who did Cain & Abel marry?

bill453: their sisters, the gene pool was uncontaminated.

bill453: I go by the lineage.

Fairy tales die hard.
