Say, it’s only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

I love Ella Fitzgerald. Reblogging for jazz, baby.

As long as I’m promoting DW Fringe communities, Fringe Rewatch is just finishing up season two. We’ll take a week off and begin season three on October 3, complete schedule to follow. Admittedly, it helps to have a Dreamwidth account for commenting/discussion, but you can use any account that supports OpenID.

"Americans have lost their taste for collective sacrifice… so when a frightening enemy like al Qaeda or ISIS threatens our sense of security, it suits nearly everyone for the president to blow up the bad guys without asking 99 percent of us to interrupt our pursuit of happiness."

Pretending we’re not at war

Presidents no longer ask Congress to declare war when ordering the military into action. That suits most Americans just fine.
