Are You a Swifty?

I am. I think she's great.

And You?


About "role models":

History will demonstrate that deeply flawed individuals can be competant public servants. And those who fit the wide definition of "strong role model" can make the world a much more dangerous place.

"The opposition" uses a tool whereby they require supporters to "defend the indefensible", which is highly effective to force the other side to play defense, and kill (meaningful) conversations. The ability (and willingness) to connect the dots pertaining to major issues while minimizing the impact of (often trivial) individual flaws doesn’t make a person complicit, or a bad person. It makes them an adult capable of sorting things out, assigning priorities, and solving real problems. This also requres a high risk tolerance for being proven wrong.

"It's all about the hype, her PR staff, aided for some reason by the major media...been there done that, see Madonna."


Agreed, except that Madonna is more interesting personally and musically.   

So many people here sound like so many from my parents' generation when the Beatles first came out, that this new music that was intended for people a generation younger than themselves, by definition had to be no good, they didn't need to even listen to it to know that...  I'd expect it's always been this way and always will be. 

@larsman  What if “the new thing the kiddies are all gaga about” is, at one time, the Beatles, and at another time, it’s Taylor Swift?  
What if, at one time, it’s Bob Dylan, and another, it’s 21 Savage?  
Chuck Berry, or Bad Bunny?
Surely we’d agree that the first thing is much better than the second?  
Just because people get older and things marketed to young folks seem juvenile and frivolous doesn’t mean they are just as good as those things from the past.
