"The duck's ass is a haircut style that was popular during the 1950s. It is also called the duck's tail, the ducktail, the duck's arse (UK), or simply D.A., and is also described as slicked back hair... The D.A. quickly became a stereotypical feature of rebels and nonconformists, and gained popularity especially after the rise of rock 'n roll legend Elvis Presley, who sported the same look. Although the ducktail was adopted by Hollywood to represent the wild youth of the Fifties, only a minority of males actually sported a D.A."  -

"In recent years the pompadour hair style has been adopted by those enamoured with vintage culture of the late 1950s and early 1960s, which includes antique cars, hot rods, muscle cars, American folk music, greasers, rockabilly bands, and Elvis Presley, Afghanistan's Ahmad Zahir as well as actors such as James Dean and Desi Arnaz."

"Sideburns are patches of facial hair grown on the sides of the face, extending from the hairline to below the ears.
sideburns were sported by "hoods", "greasers", and "rockers" as an emblem of rebellious post-pubescent manliness by young men who scorned to be "Ivy League".


There were parallels between the federal election which brought Trump to power late last year and that which saw Justin Trudeau bump Stepehen Harper from his throne.  In each case the polls were wrong! The 2015 Canadian federal election was held on October 19, 2015, to elect members to the House of Commons of the 42nd Canadian Parliament. If the issues seem similar, they were! A difference was the fact that a right-wing politico was making a fourth bid to remain in power and a socialist party stood in second place to the Conservatives, with the Liberals Party trailing far behind. They took 184 seats, the Conservayives 99 and the New Democratic Party, 44. Both losing leaders stepped down.  Part of the loss was related to the devaluation of Canadian currency and job losses.

Unfortunately in the United States in 2016, the Sun did weep and is in danger of falling into that black hole of which Teutonic myth speaks; taken down by wolves.
