Time to stop chasin’ that dollar, time to take a moment to stomp and holler

“Hard Working Americans,” featuring Todd Snider, Duane Trucks (yes, of Southern rock royalty) and others, just put out their second album, “Rest in Chaos.” Here’s a great cut from their first album to get you into the weekend. They’re opening their national tour tonight at the Fillmore, and will be playing the Buckhead Theater here in Atlanta on Aug. 20.

Ghazala Khan generously offered to loan Donald his copy of the Constitution. It was a very nice gesture on his part, and one I’d like to emulate. Though Donald assures us he’s very smart, and knows all the best words, he often seems confused about the precise meaning of basic simple words like sarcasm, and sacrifice. The sad result is that he often winds up looking like total idiot. To remedy the problem, I’d like to loan him my dictionary. Then he’d know the meaning of the word sacrifice.

Sacrifice a verb

 To give up something for something else considered more important:

When you were asked specifically what you had sacrificed, you said that you worked hard. Technically speaking, that’s not a sacrifice. Sacrifices involve giving up something that you value for something more important. If the situation ever comes up again, use Trump University as an example. You obviously sacrificed human decency for monetary gain, and you’ve done that countless times. How can Mr. Khan’s onetime loss of a son possibly compare to your life time of sacrifice?

Donald did you catch that last line? I was being sarcastic. Dictionary’s my man. No billionaire should leave home without one.

Thanks!!

I hadn't thought about this song for a while, but it made an excellent 'mind organ' tune to replay while cutting my mom's grass this afternoon!

On a musical note, lots of good Southern Rockers but none better than the original Lynyrd Skynyrd ( Swamp Music )

Royalty of Southern Rock = Royalty of Rock where Rock was born. I said it once before but it bares repeating.

Great choice Jay. Have you read Todd's book? He's a modern day Arlo.
