Hush, Somebody’s Calling My Name

July 22, 2018

“Hush, Somebody’s Calling My Name,” by Brother Joe May, 1959. The song is often attributed to T.H. Wiseman who recorded it with the Bethel Jubilee Quartet in 1923, but seems much older.

Here Comes Donald Trump’s Personal Military Parade

July 20, 2018

Here Comes Donald Trump's Personal Military Parade

Since impeachment proceedings have not yet commenced, a Joint Chiefs of Staff team is finally getting around to planning President Trump’s personal vanity military parade, now scheduled for Saturday, November 10th. It will be executed by the U.S. Military District of Washington, the Army command in charge of state funerals for former presidents, who are no doubt rolling in their graves.

November 10th is not quite Veteran’s Day, perhaps because Mr. Trump is not quite a veteran. He is a former New York Military Academy High School Cadet Captain, though he was removed from actual command duties due to shirking. Anyway, he wants a military parade, just like his best bud Kim Jong-un. There are still bone spurs snags remaining, since expenses like Secret Service and police overtime and risers, stands and barriers cannot be paid through the military budget, and the White House hasn’t made provision for them. As a money-saving measure, perhaps the reviewing stand can be limited to a single seat, since only one person wants this parade. 89 percent of Military Times readers think it’s a waste of time and money.

More:

“Planning for Trump’s military parade finally getting underway,” Courtney Kube, NBC News

“Trump’s military parade expected to cost nearly as much as ‘tremendously expensive’ canceled war games,” Ryan Browne, CNN

“For the cost of Trump’s military parade, we could get eight months of Mueller’s probe,” Philip Bump, Washington Post
