The excuse the Obama regime uses to attempt to explain away all of the scandals is the same: Errors in judgment were made, but never with mala fide intentions.

Arrrrrrggggggghhhh! Fox & Friends just used that AWFUL Icona Pop song as theme music to introduce Gov. Rick Perry of TX. You know — the one where the lyrics say “I drove my car into a bridge and I don’t care.”

I think their motives are mala fide.

The election of Obama was undertaken mala fide, for sure.

Ms. Paz of the IRS said she thought that "Tea Party" referred to people who are active in politics on either side of the political spectrum. She lied.

Since "mala" is the opposite of "bona," it is difficult to imagine Obama's elections being bona fide.

Well, you were the second poster, so the ribbon is automatic. And, like most colleges and universities, particularly those in the Ivy League, there is rampant grade inflation here.

Were it not for withholding, there would be a revolution when wage-earners realized just how much of their paycheck was going to the government. Hey, the IRS needs the money for their “conferences.”

There is a fairly well-known Italian song called "mala femmina," which translates to "bad woman."

I had gone to YouTube to find a nice version of "Mala Femmina" and that clip came up. The singer is Nino Rossano. He's been around for awhile.

More songs here.

Such a sad day. Vince Flynn dies of prostate cancer at age 47. Love his books and character, Mitch Rapp. Will miss him. Guess I will share this with DH, who thinks he should do nothing about his prostate cancer.

There is, indeed a noun expression—”mala fides.”
It translates into “bad faith.”

Really sorry to hear about Vince Flynn.

I had never heard that song, until I noticed it in that Shoe Dazzle ad when I was in the hospital. I brought it up here, and most, if not all, of you had never heard it before. Since my bitter complaints about it, I have heard it repeatedly and in various formats. It is the background music in a VODKA ad! Now theme music for Gov. Perry’s introduction! What next?

Does anyone ever listen to the lyrics before they co-opt these things as theme music?

I got this feeling on the summer day when you were gone.
I crashed my car into the bridge. I watched, I let it burn.
I threw your sh*t into a bag and pushed it down the stairs.
I crashed my car into the bridge.

I don’t care, I love it. I don’t care.

You’re from the 70’s, but I’m a 90’s b*tch

I’m not obsessed, other that I cannot understand why nobody else is disturbed by this terribly negative message this song sends teens and recognizes the danger.

I recently watched a Dateline on ID where a Montana honor student was convicted of doing exactly that after breaking up with her boyfriend. It was not quite exact, however. She crossed the center line and crashed her car into an oncoming car at 85 mph and killed 3 people. I suppose there was no bridge handy. She got 30 years in jail with 15 suspended. She texted her intention to kill herself by crashing her car to her boyfriend just before it happened. This happened 2 days before the prom.

Now, I have no idea whether this teen ever heard this song, but I do know that unstable, emotional people can be influenced by music, movies, and books.

It’s not even good music.

Afraid, maybe it’s just that we have all seen and heard far worse as far as current music lyrics, and this fails to register on the scale, because it’s no more heinous than many other songs. Popular culture is a cesspool, period. This particular song is, sad to say, fairly de riguer.

Obviously, I don’t listen to the same music you do — nor would I encourage my children to do so.

And it’s one thing when you can’t hear/understand the words. It’s another when the lyrics are as clear as Cole Porter.

With every word uttered of
All the screw-ups and misuse
The truth is plain to anyone
Who is not willfully obtuse

That every action of the IRS
Is mala fide, at the least-
A tool against an enemies list
And a way to feed that beast

It has a history of corruption
That goes back farther than us-
It is past time for a clean-up
And throwing it under the bus...
