Unapologetic flaming Socialist-Liberal.

Not sure what I am, but I don't like labels put on me anyway.

BBC said...

Speak, but keep my mama out of it!

Why? Sounds like fun to me, ha ha ha ha ha

Holte Ender said...

Way to go Mo - Nice bit of ivory tickling.

the walking man said...

I know a certain legislative body that he sings this song to.

becomingkate said...

He's a funky dude.

jadedj said...

BBC---Okay, zap...you're de-labeled.

BBC---She's up yonder with Barnum & Bailey.

Holte---Indeed it is.

wm---Exactly my sentiments. I wanted to see if anyone picked up on that.

kate---Not bad for an old guy, huh?

Mose is the man. Only caught him live once, but it was in a small club and Mose had hired my buddy to play bass. I've never seen him so confused, my buddy that is. Mose didn't stick to the script. That's why he is what he is, or was?? Hope he's still living.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---Wish I could attest to that, but I've never seen him live. He is a fav though.

He was still performing as of October '07. There's a video clip of a concert in Amsterdam on YouTube. He would have been 80 that year. Pretty incredible.

Fitting sound track for the current legislative session, I agree. Very timely, j.

jadedj said...

intell---Possibly ALL legislative sessions?

Harlequin said...

.... and it could just as easily be a jingle for the Canadian parliament as well.... sigh.

Tom Harper said...

I also saw Mose live. Boarding House in San Francisco, about a million years ago.

jadedj said...

Harlequin---Then you have my condolences.

jadedj said...

Tom---Would that I could say the same.

Karen said...

Ha! Ha!

Punch said...

I stand accused as charged.

jadedj said...

Punch---Correction...you stand accused as charged.

re: legislation
I have tuned it all out in self-defense and am developing the plan to move to Lake Tahoe, CA to work in the medicinal marijuana industry.

jadedj said...

PE---Good idea, but perhaps you should reconsider the locale. How about San Diego? Much longer growing season.

jadedj said...

Karen---Oops, sorry slipped right by you. Ha ha works for me.

Dedene said...

I hadn't heard this before, but it's great. Seems to describe the recent Copenhagen fiasco.

PS. I love your daughter's letter to Santa!

jadedj said...

Dedene---Amazing, isn't it?

Yes, she's a cutie...and on top of it.

Chimp said...

He is good. Is this dedicated to Joe Lieberman?

jadedj said...

Chimp---Yeah, except Joe's also comes with a large sack of monkey dung. It will be there shortly after xmas...he wasn't worth next day air.

mo.stoneskin said...

Um, what can I say? Well you've rounded my evening off nicely pal, good night!

jadedj said...

mo---Are you saying I put you to sleep? Don't feel bad, you are not the first to fall asleep on this blog...including me.
