Everly Brothers sing "Mama Tried" live on the Ed Sullivan Show

Arguably the Americana genre of music was born in 1968. The Band cut Music From Big Pink. The Byrds released Sweetheart Of The Rodeo.

And a lesser-known album by the Everly Brothers was issued in '68. It's called Roots.

Here's the opening track of that classic album, a cover of Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried."

Democrats: Placing Politics Over People

The country is in crisis. But that doesn't stop the Democrats from pushing their leftist agenda by stuffing junk into the coronavirus economic rescue bill that has nothing, and I mean nothing, to do with COVID-19 and its effects.

Liberals want to add leftist goodies on to coronavirus aid bill

Liberals believe, to use Rahm Emanuel's words, that a crisis never should go to waste. Which is why Democrats in Congress are trying to add a leftist goody bag onto the coronavirus aid bill.

From James S. Robbins in USA Today:
The 1119-page bill is Christmas in March for liberal special interests. It imposes racial and gender pay equity provisions, diversity on corporate boards, increased use of minority-owned banks by federal offices, and a grab-bag of other diversity-themed requirements. It increases the collective bargaining power for unions and cancels all the debt owed by the U.S. Postal Service to the U.S. Treasury. For the global warming crowd there are increased fuel emission standards and required carbon offsets for airlines, plus tax credits for alternative energy programs. For the kids there is a provision for student loan payment deferment, and for the education bureaucrats who overcharge them a $9.5 billion giveaway to colleges and universities. It gives $100 million to juvenile justice programs, and suspends various aspects of enforcement of immigration laws.

Perhaps the most troubling sections of the bill are under the rubric ‘‘American Coronavirus/COVID–19 Election Safety and Security” or ‘‘ACCESS” Act. This section would impose requirements on states for early voting, voting by mail, required mailing of absentee ballots to everyone, ballot harvesting (i.e., having third parties deliver absentee ballots), online voter registration, same-day registration and other practices which undermine confidence in the integrity of the ballot. In these days of increasing threats to election security we should be moving rapidly back to in-person paper ballots, but this bill would be a radical step in the wrong direction.
