      It wasn’t long before Twitter users stormed Huckabee’s timeline with some 9,000 or so thoughts of their own: Merkel isn’t the one associated with nazis, Mike. Angela Merkel has far less in common with Nazis than Donald J. Trump, and I say this as a Jew. Also, go fuck yourself to the depths of hell, father-of-a-dog-killer – it’s almost as awkward as wishing the Japanese prime minister a “happy memorial day” wouldn’t you say? – Since most people commenting here understand how idiotic your tweet it, they might be interested in this fascinating profile of Merkel, a woman whose intellect and accomplishments are truly remarkable.”

    “Peter, Paul and Mary perform “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” live at their 25th anniversary concert in 1986. Now, two and a half decades later, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the formation of the group in the famed Greenwich Village,” ”
    The track was originally written by Pete Seeger. Peter, Paul and Mary included it on their first album released in 1962. It was one of the rare folk albums to reach US#1 – staying for over a month.”

    “On July 26, 1956, the House of Representatives voted 373 to 9 to cite Pete Seeger and seven others (including playwright Arthur Miller) for contempt, as they failed to cooperate with House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in their attempts to investigate alleged subversives and communists. Pete Seeger testified before the HUAC in 1955.
    In one of Pete’s darkest moments, when his personal freedom, his career, and his safety were in jeopardy, a flash of inspiration ignited this song. The song was stirred by a passage from Mikhail Sholokhov’s novel “And Quie Flows the Don”. Around the world the song traveled and in 1962 at a UNICEF concert in Germany, Marlene Dietrich, Academy Award-nominated German-born American actress, first performed the song in French, as “Qui peut dire ou vont les fleurs?” Shortly after she sang it in German. The song’s impact in Germany just after WWII was shattering. It’s universal message, “let there be peace in the world” did not get lost in its translation. To the contrary, the combination of the language, the setting, and the great lyrics has had a profound effect on people all around the world. May it have the same effect today and bring renewed awareness to all that hear it.”
