Fleetwood Mac - Hold Me (one by Christine McVie)

Official Video and Album Version



2018 Remaster



Lyrics

Can you understand me
Baby don't you hand me a line
Although it doesn't matter
You and me got plenty of time
There's nobody in the future
So baby let me hand you my love
Oh, there's no step for you to dance to
So slip your hand inside of my glove

Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

I don't want no damage
But how am I gonna manage with you
You want the percentage
But I'm the fool payin' the dues
I live just around the corner
If you got a minute to spare
I'll be waitin' for ya'
If you ever want to be there

Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me
Hold me, hold me, hold me

Fleetwood Mac - Peacekeeper (one by Lindsey Buckingham)

Official Video Version



Album Version



Lyrics:

We make all of our suns the same
Every one will suffer the fire we've made
They all explode just the same
And there's no going back on the plans we've made

Peacekeeper, take your time
Wait for the dark of night
Soon all the suns will rise
Peacekeeper, don't tell why
Don't be afraid to fight
Love is the sweet surprise

Only creatures who are on their way
Ever poison their own well
But we still have time to hate
And there's still something we can sell

Peacekeeper, take your time
Wait for the dark of night
Soon all the suns will rise
Peacekeeper, don't tell why
Don't be afraid to fight
Love is the sweet surprise

When the night is cold and still
When you thought you'd had your fill
Take all the time you will
This is not a test, it's not a drill
Take no prisoners, only kill

You know all of our friends are Gods
And they all tell us how to paint our face
But there's only one brush we need
It's the one that never leaves a trace

Peacekeeper, take your time
Wait for the dark of night
Soon all the suns will rise
Peacekeeper, don't tell why
Don't be afraid to fight
Love is the sweet surprise

Fleetwood Mac - Say You Will (one by Stevie Nicks)

Official Video Version



Album Version



Lyrics

Something in you brought out something in me
That I've never been since
That part of me that was only for you
That kind of romance
Comes only once, that kind of love
That kind of fever dance
That you love because you've become someone else
In an instant

Say you will, say you will give me one more chance
At least give me time to change your mind
That always seems to heal the wounds
If I can get you to dance

Something in you put a hold on my heart
It's hard to believe now
Here is a place that will never be dark
I remember that place
That kind of touch, electricity of love
That certain kind of grace
That you love because you become someone else
In an instant

Say you will, say you will give me one more chance
At least give me time to change your mind
That always seems to heal the wounds
If I can get you to dance

Say you will, say you will give me one more chance
(Say you will)
At least give me time to change your mind
(Say you will)
That always seems to heal the wounds
If I can get you to dance

Same, exactly.

I even had a tentative schedule to try to regain my ability to sleep, and to do some creative stuff, maybe some writing (which I haven't done in 4 years).

Now, I don't really see an end in sight, not even Inauguration day.

I did understand Trump would behave badly after the election, but I didn't really think about how much it would impact Joe and Kamala. That's the most painful thing to me, is watching the transition destroyed, and imagining what the consequences will be. I simply didn't understand that the transition process itself could be uprooted.

Thom Hartmann floated this possibility a couple of months back.

I always listen to what Thom Hartmann has to say, but I couldn't gauge how serious he was about this, since his theory depended on the cooperation of Fed Chair Powell, so for the most part I dismissed it. (Jay Powell is not going to help Trump crash the stock market.)

But there are other ways he could accomplish this.

I'm not putting a single thing past Trump. He will hurt anybody at this point, even his rich friends. He's beyond caring.

I think it was Joy Reid who last night said "The mask is off..."

This was indisputably pure racism. Right in America's face.

I'm not really sure if, in my lifetime, I've ever seen anything so bold by public officials. This seems like something from the 1950s or 60s. Stuff I've only read about.

They weren't trying to "sneak" something through. It was so blatant. It felt to me like what it might have been like to watch cops block the way of little black kids trying to go to school. It was repulsive.

Something to watch out for here: Erik Prince's old plan

Remember this? Mattis laughed him out of the Pentagon, but new people are in there now:

Here’s the blueprint for Erik Prince’s $5 billion plan to privatize the Afghanistan war

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2018/09/05/heres-the-blueprint-for-erik-princes-5-billion-plan-to-privatize-the-afghanistan-war/

When Trump does something on an international scale that, at first blush,

doesn't seem to benefit him directly or personally, I start to wonder if he is repaying a favor to a foreign leader, or expecting a favor in return (i.e., the Syrian troop pullout, moving the embassy to Jerusalem).

I'm thinking... Prior to Trump, McCain was the figure he most

idolized, and when McCain died, that left Graham open to maximize (or, really, capitalize on) his relationship with someone even more powerful than McCain. Graham seems gratified to bask in the limelight these larger-than-life figures receive. Sort of like Pence does with Trump, albeit with less fanfare and self-promotion.

I'm sticking with the "Pilot fish" theory of Lindsey Graham.

Woodward's first book on Trump, Fear, depicts Graham as starstruck by how close his relationship with Trump became. Graham, for a while at least, thought he had tremendous influence over Trump, and loved being the guy Trump called at midnight to vent, and to play golf with. He attaches himself to the biggest whale.

I'm open to the blackmail theory, but Graham's relationship with Trump is not the relationship most people would have with their blackmailer.

When John McCain died, so did Graham's Jiminy Cricket (his conscience).

At some point the adolescent infatuation gave way to fear, because Trump stopped listening so much to Graham and, in Graham's estimation, Trump has immense power, even after being roundly defeated in this election.
