A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedoms of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
   ~ James Madison

BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.

Today we have a TV commercial from the 60s that somehow escaped us at the time. Perhaps it was a late-night commercial that, as kids, we were not allowed to watch. Well... we can watch now!

See... we told you so:

"IT'S A HURRICANE IT'S A HURRICANE WERE ALL GOING TO DIE WERE ALL GONNA DIE."

I Remember... June 8, 1968

I remember June 8, 1968... but only because both "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Lady Willpower" were released on that day. Also on June 8, 1968, Bermuda adopted its constitution. But for some reason, that did not attract my attention.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:

1. First, our current events question:
Last week, President Obama spoke of his perception of himself. Fill in the mising word:
"I am the closest thing to a ______ that has ever sat" in the Oval Office.
    Muslim
    Black man
    Jew
    dictator
    socialist
    libertarian
    progressive
    Constitutional law professor
    climate change czar
    Kenyan
    savior
    basketball star
    community organizer
    illegal drug user

2. It's a still-shot... not from a movie or TV show. It's from a TV commercial in the 60s. The music was so catchy that it was turned into a hit instrumental. What product was promoted in this popular ad?

3. We noted, above, that "Lady Willpower" was released on June 8, 1968. What group had a hit with that song?

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.
