Open thread for Saturday, November 10th: This is your place to vent edition
Because I posted the weekday edition of the open thread on Tuesday instead of on Thursday I have decided to post the weekend edition on Saturday instead of Sunday this week. This is your place to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever topics come up throughout the day.
Many of you are still reeling from the election results so I have decided to make this your official place to vent and to rant about the results. I have decided that because there is nothing we can do about the results it is time to move on, so while I will answer comments on this post until the next open thread on Thursday I will stop answering comments on my two election related posts in order to focus on “moving forward.”
For the musical selection of the day I decided that if the theme was ranting against the government the obvious selection would be a classic punk rock song from back in the day.
When you think original punk rock you have to think about the Sex Pistols, so that is precisely what I have done. So what is the song I chose to showcase? When thinking Sex Pistols one naturally remembers ‘Anarchy in the UK’ or ‘God Save the Queen’ but I have decided to go in a different direction.
Because of the stupid and moronic statements of two Republican senatorial candidates in regard to rape and abortion the Republicans lost whatever chance they might have had at winning control of the Senate so I have decided to feature what is probably the most raw, in your face, unabashedly pro-life and anti-abortion anthem ever written.
If you are not familiar with the song please be advised that the lyrics are very graphic and several “F-Bombs” are included. If you are going to punk out, go all the way right? I decided to post a more recent reincarnation of the Sex Pistols due to the better audio and video quality.
Here is “Bodies” by the Sex Pistols:
