Of Myth And Man…

“We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it’s all about.” 
― Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Walt Disney is cryogenically frozen, Newton was hit by an apple, Eve ate an apple, The Lost city of Atlantis, Man never landed on the moon, Elvis is dead-Ok maybe the last one  true.

We create myths, sometimes it seems they create themselves, out of real events but mostly they are complete fabrications. They are supposed to entertain, carry some ideas throughout the ages but modern myths seem to be more about satisfying a sophomoric desire to prank someone; unless you really think there are mutant alligators in the sewers, Psst…don’t tell anyone there really are.

Already the divisive myths are being used on you; to indoctrinate you, to make you fall in line, to keep you from questioning. The front-runner myth in politics at this time  is that  Bernie Sanders is not electable, but if you are a lib/dem and are critical of Hillary Clinton then you are said playing right into the RIGHT-WINGER’S hands….yes, folks!  free independent thinking is the enemy, for some there is great comfort in being part of group think.  So go listen to the Pied Pipers of the Internet—I’m sticking with Sanders until Xenu returns.

    “Four of the banks – JPMorgan, Barclays, Citigroup and RBS – have agreed to plead guilty to US criminal charges.
    The fifth, UBS, will plead guilty to rigging benchmark interest rates.”

      Hiya Classy – took the words right outta my mouth. I still like to see that they have to admit wrong doing, even if the punishment does not fit the crime.

      • Classical Gas says:

        I want to see perp walks. Until real live people are charged, tried and sentenced the culture will persist. They don’t think they’re doing anything wrong. 🙄

    “The U.S. government has charged four cancer charities with misusing more than $187 million in donations, with two agreeing to be dissolved and two fighting the allegations, the Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday.”

      That is incredibly sad for so many levels..I have personally donated to a certain institute for pediatric cancer research almost 1 K…hardly received any info what the did… that`s saying enough CG 😦

      • Classical Gas says:

        It’s very sad – and incredibly low of them. I hope your donation went to good use.

        • bebe says:

          We have to believe in that lovely CG what choices do we have ?
          Reports like that makes folks not to give it is something like a double edge sword,
          I am glad they exposed some of them , there are so many more others.

    Looks like Airbus could be in some deep do do (I wonder if they contracted out those ECUs and to whom, that’s what I would lkie to know)

    Airbus suggests that a military plane crash might have been caused by a problem with the software that controlled its engines.

    Investigators have found evidence a military plane crash in Spain may have been caused by software problems. The Airbus A400M crashed near Seville, on 9 May, after a failed emergency landing during its first flight. The four crew members on board were killed in the accident.

    It has sent out an alert to other air forces that have taken deliveries of the propeller aircraft, saying that they should carry out checks of the Electronic Control Units (ECU) on board. “For practical purposes, these are computers, and there is one on each engine,” the spokesman said.

    A $15 Minimum Wage Bombshell in Los Angeles – NYTimes.com

    Opponents of higher wages — generally, business groups and their political allies — have raised the same objections in Los Angeles that have been raised since the dawn of the federal minimum wage in 1938: that higher pay will lead to layoffs and business closings or business migration. But experience and research involving actual minimum wage increases indicate otherwise: Th

    “Osama bin Laden was fixated on attacking U.S. targets and pressured al Qaeda groups to heal local rivalries and focus on that cause, according to documents the United States says were seized in his hideout in Pakistan and released on Wednesday.”

    repeal of Glass Steagall – the most vile act of Bill’s career

    The Clintons Made Wall Street Richer, and It Returned the Favor | Alternet

    In 1999, President Bill Clinton rallied allies in Congress to pass the Financial Services Modernization Act, which repealed the Depression-Era Glass Steagall law separating commercial and investment banking. The result was a spree of mergers and growth that involved a huge growth in the size of the nation’s biggest banks and their profits.

    6 Awesome Things About Bernie Sanders You Might Not Know | Alternet

    Three weeks ago, a slightly disheveled U.S. senator wandered out to the front lawn of the Capitol Building and declared his campaign for president. Bernie Sanders, an avowed democratic socialist from the small state of Vermont, was in.

    The simplicity and directness of the setting signaled that Sanders wasn’t just another candidate in a crowded race, but a whole different kind of challenger. As Sanders was quick to warn, “People should not underestimate me.” He’s not kidding. As Sanders’ career has demonstrated, he doesn’t just hold policy positions, he acts on them.

        Did you party like it was 1999 while I was away?

        • waverly says:

          The day I can find a postable recording of Prince doing that song is the day I will party like that

            That little bugger has gone all,” it’s my shit” well he can keep it as fa as I concerned.

            • waverly says:

              Yeah, that’s like my sister. She was born an EXTREMELY gifted artist. But since childhood has hoarded her talent unwilling to share with the world. Her choice to make I guess. But a poor choice in my book.

              • Gadfly Jack says:

                I agree, but you gotta love her for her. What is her genre?

                • waverly says:

                  In grade school, I’m talkin about second grade here now. She could free hand Disney studio quality animation. You had to see it to believe it. My father made the mistake one day of taking some of her sketches to work with him to show off around the water cooler. After that she became very guarded, a virtual recluse. Only sharing with her very closest friends.

            • waverly says:

              Yeah – he is an R-teest

            • MSolomon2 says:

              I never could stand him. Always seemed so full-of-himself.

        • waverly says:

          I would love to post some Prince. Apparently he must have been very savy with his music rights.

          • Gadfly Jack says:

            I don’t mind music rights, but what he’s done is have a hissy fit that has little to do with monetizing and all to do with his ego. If he needs to make sure people using his music are not streaming without royalties or worse pirating his music–fine. But when he goes off an demands more than anyone else is getting on youtube then I say screw him. Every-time someone watches a clip on you tube he makes money and better yet is exposed to new generations of fans, most of the music I really like be it an oldie or contemporary I watch on youtube—then I go and buy it on iTunes, the artist makes money from youtube and iTunes.

            Nobody is going back to vinyl, CDs and even mp3s will change…the music world has changed and the OLD music G-ds like prince are small fries—he better get used to it.

            Just as a Eff you to him here is the video 1999.
