Open thread for Saturday September 1: Barack Obama’s ‘Red Right Hand’ edition
Here is the open thread for Saturday September 1st, this is the place to leave links you find interesting or to engage in conversation about whatever issues happen to come up.
Later on today we are going to go see the movie ‘Lawless’ it is a movie based on the true story of three brothers during the prohibition era. The screenplay just happens to have been written by one of my all time favorite musicians, Nick Cave, so I am really looking forward to seeing the movie and listening to the soundtrack.
About a year ago I wrote a post called ‘Barack Obama’s Red Right Hand’ in which I took a Nick Cave song written in 1994 and compared it to Barack Obama and his policies. The entity with the Red Right Hand was a man who made promises, but a man who had to be watched carefully because he “ain’t what he seems.” I have readers here today that I didn’t have over a year ago so in the interest of shameless self promotion I have decided to link to the article.
Please check out Barack Obama’s “Red Right Hand.”
And here is a pretty cool live version of the song:
