No, they weren't. In fact, he was the first Secretary of State in the Wilson Administration.

             But here's the way it came down. TR was in Africa shooting lions with a lever action Winchester when his life was saved by William Howard Taft, who had begun to abandon TR's work as a trust buster and was climbing back into bed with big business.
             It pissed TR off to the point where he came back and tried to wrest the nomination away from Taft for 1912, when that didn't work, he formed his own party and ran against him. That split the Republican party and got Wilson elected.
             So, most of the people supporting TR were progressive Republicans, the one's supporting Taft were pro-business Republicans, while the voters supporting Wilson were Democrats.
             Bryan, of course, supported Wilson with the right-wing-religious-wakko wing of the Democratic Party.

Yeah, Bill Bryan's quite familiar to me: Democrat, lawyer, cross of gold speech, Scopes Trial & all that. But his presidential races & early populist leanings were all before TR's independent bid in 1912.

So what's Bryan got to do with the price of tea in China?

Rig,

You apparently haven't the slightest idea of what the Progressive movement and/or the Progressive Party in the U.S. was & what their platform & ideology was.

Still, they were Republicans just the same.

No, they were not. TR had broken rather violently with the Republican party was a 3rd party candidate.

The right-wing-religious-wakkos were mostly Democrats

Not hardly. Sorry.

We seem to be on the verge of yet ANOTHER unwanted federal election in Canada! Virtually no one in the general public wants it, but the party politicians are playing their usual games of musical chairs. So.....our local Conservative Party member here in Simcoe Country is spouting bullshit about how we should vote Conservative to stop the evils of "socialism" from threatening!

He's appealing to his usual dumbass constituency, those who are stupid enough to respond to that sort of thing...despite the fact that their pensions, their health care, their roads, their schools, their municipal works, their libraries, their police, their fire department, their utilities, and a huge number of other things they want, love, and absolutely can't do without are provided by.....................socialism!

Idiots.

I know Bruce Stanton (the Conservative party member) and he doesn't strike me as a stupid man, so I presume he's simply saying whatever the Conservative party machine thinks will scare people off voting for the other parties and keep him in office. Surely he can't believe it???? No, I don't think he's that stupid by any means.

The average demographic around here is an older age group of rural and small town White English Canadians that is fairly (or considerably) well off financially...and that is exactly where the Conservative Party draws its strength in this country. It's the Old Guard. They live in the past and are terrified of the hordes of immigrants and other have-nots whom they envision clambering at the gates...

You can get a blind dog or a drunken gorilla elected in this town...just as long as he's a Conservative Party member. ;-) (not that I'm suggesting anything about Bruce Stanton...like I said, he's an okay guy, he's just batting for a bad team, that's all).

Rig,you epitomise the essence of the Know Nothing Party, a brief and correct summation from Wikipedia:

"The Know Nothing movement was a nativist American political movement of the 1840s and 1850s. It was empowered by popular fears that the country was being overwhelmed by Irish Catholic immigrants, who were often regarded as hostile to U.S. values and controlled by the Pope in Rome. Mainly active from 1854 to 1856, it strove to curb immigration and naturalization..."

Chongo says she oughta take what she can get, and I can see his point. It would certainly have an interesting effect on America's foreign policy with Sarah as Secretary of State, don'tcha think?

Last week we had our 4th Annual Top of the Mountain Music Mini Fest, accessed by tramway. There were 10 sets of performers for the evening and among them was a 'Bluescast', a political satire.

Among the songs they had us singing was (to the tune of Alouette):

Where is Sarah? Tell me, where is Sarah?
Where is Sarah? Tell me where she is.

Did she quit her governorjob
Yes she quit her governor job
Quit her job, quit her job
Oooooh

Where is Sarah? Tell me, where is Sarah?
Where is Sarah? Tell me where she is.

Is she on a speaking tour
Yes, she's on a speaking tour
Speaking tour, speaking tour, quit her job, quit her job
Ooohh

Where is Sarah? Tell me, where is Sarah?
Where is Sarah? Tell me where she is.

Has she got an author deal?
Yes, she's got an author deal
author deal, author deal, speaking tour, speaking tour, quit her job, quit her job

Oooohh

Where is Sarah? Tell me, where is Sarah?
Where is Sarah? Tell me where she is.

Will she run for president?
Oh, sure, she'll run for president.
President, president, speaking tour, speaking tour, author deal,author deal, quit her job, quit her job

Ooooohhhhhhhhh Oh"

Written by Ed Schoenfeld and Jeff Brown, Juneau, Alaska


And to the tune of Mrs. Robinson:

"Here's to you, Levi Johnston.
There's a place for those who kiss and tell.
We call it hell.
What's up with you, Levi Johnston?
Some say that you will go far.
As a porn star.
So says the Enquirerrrrrr."

Human interest in stories like hers is just another Miss America loses her crown story. Just another Brittany Spears melt down story.

What fascination remains is that these people still end up making vast sums of money. There is a vicarious thrill in watching complete asses make a fortune, it makes folks still believe that they too have a chance.

Yes, he's a fictional character. Burt Lancaster played the part with real gusto, and it was quite an entertaining film.

If you want to see some absolutely chilling examples, Rig, of what extreme anti-religious and proudly atheist fanaticism can do...rent the movie "Seven Years in Tibet", watch it through, and see what the Maoists did in Tibet in the 1950s.

Then watch some documentaries on Pol Pot and the Khymer Rouge who managed to kill about 1/3 of the entire domestic population in their own country in just a few years of organized insanity. They were atheist fanatics too.

Fanaticism can take any conceivable viewpoint and turn it into a murderous obscenity.

You think? Well, I guess it all depends on your definition of honesty. I know any number of religious people who are extremely honest. That doesn't mean you would necessarily agree with them about everything, though. I bet there are witch doctors who are completely honest too...simply because they DO believe in what they are doing.

Elmer Gantry was a bit different than that...an interesting case indeed! But he was rather a likeable rascal, I thought.

It's a very well known story by now, Wesley, for those who have followed Buffy's career closely or attended her concerts and heard her speak of it. You would find numerous writeups about it in articles written about Buffy in mainstream journalism. There were a few folk acts that were heavily blacklisted at various times...among them Buffy Sainte-Marie, The Weavers (at an earlier date than Buffy), and Eartha Kitt (who was blacklisted in the 60s because she spoke out vigorously against the Vietnam War).

Buffy made far better money than you think, but she had to make it mostly in Europe and the Far East during those years of the blacklist (which only took effect in the USA and Canada). There were always a handful of famous and very gifted "folksingers" out there who had an extremely lucrative career in music, and among those were people like Buffy Sainte-Marie, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen, for example. Just because your average folksinger makes diddly-squat does not mean that nobody makes good money singing folk music.

Yes, they needed undercover agents to wreck her North American career. She was one of the artists being managed by Albert Grossman, and most people that Grossman handled did very well indeed during the 60s and 70s.

Government agents were sent to every radio station in the USA and Canada to strongly suggest that they not play music by Buffy Sainte-Marie. They said that she was a "communist" (untrue) and a "subversive" (their opinion).

She launched a court case in the mid-70s to secure a copy of her FBI file (and it is her constitutional right to be provided with that, if she requests it). The case took some time to resolve, and was costly, but they did eventually provide her with a copy of said file. There was nothing incriminating in it at all...merely a lot of pointless innuendo such as..."---------, a known subversive, was seen attending a Buffy Sainte-Marie concert at ----------" etc... This was a case of being under suspicion because you have written and performed a few protest songs that piss off the government. Period.

It was Lyndon Johnson who lowered the boom on Buffy Sainte-Marie. He was bothered by her songs "My Country 'Tis of the People You're Dying" and "Now That the Buffalo's Gone", among others.

Buffy says now that it was sort of like the government was going after a gnat with a giant sledgehammer...given that her ability to actually threaten the existing status quo in North America was virtually nil. ;-) It seems quite ridiculous in retrospect that they would have mounted such a big effort against her, but I think it demonstrates rather well the utter arrogance of the people at the top in this society.

Eartha Kitt's career was also very badly damaged by those same people, but she did VERY well in Europe, as did Buffy.

I've never heard that story before. I'm not disputing it - just saying I've never heard it before.

Did they really need undercover agents to ruin her career? She was - and is - a FOLKSINGER. "Career" and "folksinger" don't exactly go together.

It could be done, Carol. The big publishing houses and the mass media are concentrated in just a few wealthy hands, and I'm sure it is possible to effectively promote (or suppress) any particular book that some of those major players wish to promote (or suppress). If so promoted, it will sell in very large quantities. It just needs to be brought to people's attention, that's all.

The same thing is done with music. Buffy Sainte-Marie's music, for example, was very effectively suppressed between about 1965 and 1975 by undercover agents of the Johnson and Nixon administrations who brought pressure on the media that play popular music, and it basically killed her career in North America at that time in the sense that she got NO airplay and consequently sold a lot less records. Certain other people got massively promoted during those same years because they weren't seen as a threat by the powers that be...and there was money to be made.

Seems to me like it would be child's play for those people to successfully pump up the sales of a book...if they wanted to. All that is needed to do it is the desire to do it. The means are always there. The public buys what they hear about...in effect, they buy what they are told to buy by the authoritative voices in the media.

At each Investor Forum there is usually a media centre equipped with printers, photocopiers, computers and internet access, where refreshments are provided throughout the day. In addition, there are separate media rooms where media briefings and interviews are conducted.

We issue media invitations to register for Investor Forums one month in advance.

I wonder how the CLSA Investors Forum members feel about the choice of speakers. Palin seems pretty lightweight compared to Greenspan, Gore and Clinton. They certainly can't expect an in depth look at the economy. This will be interesting. Wonder why the press was barred?
From their website:

CLSA Investor Forums
CLSA Investor Forums have become the most successful events of their kind. First held in 1994, CLSA now runs seven major Forums in Asia and the US, which attract more than 5,000 institutional investors, corporations and speakers annually.

Global leaders and industry specialists use CLSA Investor Forums as a platform to examine the economic, political, environmental, technological and financial trends impacting global markets. In the past, keynote speakers have included Bill Clinton, Alan Greenspan, Al Gore, Henry Kissinger, Lee Kuan Yew and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, to name a few.

CLSA Investor Forums also offer high-level corporate access. Each year, more than 1,600 CEOs and CFOs from 750 corporations present to and meet with CLSA clients, while an average of 1,500 private meetings are held at each Forum, ensuring maximum one-on-one face time for companies and investors.
