Jackson Progressive Salon list: “Recent changes to our event calendar”

Hello, comrades!  🙂

I updated our calendar recently and that might have generated a lot of e-mail or app notification noise for you.  I apologize for that if so.

It appeared that along the way there were created duplicate calendar events.  I removed them but I wanted to ensure that everyone knows *we are still having weekly happy hours*!  🙂  And I use “happy hour” loosely.  Feel free to drink or not drink, eat or not eat.  The point is just to hang out in a friendly environment with people you might not otherwise hang out with but share a lot of your values.

I worked with Hal & Mal’s to come up with dates for our next three movie nights: September 13, October 18, and November 22.  Please attend and enjoy some thought-provoking media with your progressive sisters and brothers!

I think that’s it.

By the way, because we are a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization donations are *not* tax deductible.  But I encourage you to do it anyway!  🙂

Peace, love, and imagination,

Ali

Sen. Rand Paul claims in cowardly fashion that criticizing America warrants deportation

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/07/senator-rand-paul-offers-buy-ungrateful-rep-ilhan-omar-ticket-to-somalia.html

From http://utminers.utep.edu/omwilliamson/ENGL1311/fallacies.htm :

The Worst Negates the Bad (also, Be Grateful for What You’ve Got): The extremely common modern logical fallacy that an objectively bad situation somehow isn’t so bad simply because it could have been far worse, or because someone, somewhere has it even worse. E.g., “I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw someone who had no feet.” Or, “You’re protesting because you earn only $7.25 an hour? You could just as easily be out on the street! I happen to know there are people in Uttar Pradesh who are doing the very same work you’re doing for one tenth of what you’re making, and they’re pathetically glad just to have work at all. You need to shut up, put down that picket sign, get back to work for what I care to pay you, and thank me each and every day for giving you a job!”

Apparently the senator hasn’t been properly educated on how to think logically. But it sure has gotten him far in his life! Clearly our political class is rewarded not for being reasonable, nor correct, nor for pursuing truth, and definitely not for helping society; but instead for bullying, saying foolish things in public, appealing to the lowest common denominator, and distracting from the important things that are happening around us.

Thank the gods for the PR industry which keeps stupid people such as Trump’s pet Mulvaney employed.

USA TODAY: ‘I promise you, you’re wrong’: Fox News’ Wallace shuts down Mulvaney claim Mueller vindicated Trump.

Mulvaney, Sarah Sanders, Frank Luntz, Sunday talk show imaginers. . . . Just throw out the stupidest misconstructions you can concoct in your unreasonable mind without any regard for their veracity, value, impact on society, capacity for destruction. . . . Great job!! 👏👏👏👏👏👏💰💰💰💰💰💰👹 You consummate dancing monkeys!!

The Plastic Industry’s Fight to Keep Polluting the World

Pushes to “recycle” plastics are one element of a massive, industry-led effort to suppress meaningful efforts to reduce plastic waste.

Yeah, keep recycling!  🙂  Instead of donating money to Bernie Sanders, for example, or becoming an educated voter and citizen and rightfully condemning with hellfire the corporations that have completely hijacked the world you live in and that governs you.  Don’t want to appear to be too extreme, right?

Word-swapping & being better off with no news than commercial “news”

The politics and business of health care, by Caitlin Owens. Weekday mornings

Source: Vitals – July 15, 2019 – Axios

So, look at this paragraph:

Biden’s proposal is more ambitious than anything that was seriously on the table during the ACA debate, but looks decidedly moderate compared to Bernie Sanders’ plan — which is significantly more ambitious than almost any other health care system in the world.

It appears to me that the corporate-owned/corporate-controlled media have elected to swap out the word “worse” for “moderate”, and “better” for “ambitious”.  And I think the reason why they did that is because the de-facto tendency for corporate/conservative/status-quo/commercial media is to make it look like, “Gosh, it’s just too hard to do good things.  :-/ Sorry!  I mean, we just tried to do something good and that didn’t work, but now you want to do something *really* good?  How do you think *that* will turn out?  :-/  Yeah.  Now I’m really worried.  Let’s not do that.  That’s just too hard.  It might not work.”

Well, that’s weak.  🙂  And it seems like propaganda and not educational discourse.  So have fun reading your Axios and feeling like you are more aware than you were before you read it.  You were probably more correct in your thinking prior to reading it.  Remember the news that Fox News viewers were actually less informed than those who watch *none* of that garbage, commercial, cable-TV, non-local news.

 

Sex & White Male Capitalist Supremacy

One of the most tragic consequences of the way we have chosen to structure our stupid society is that sex between a man and a woman has largely been reduced to be merely a financial transaction, a commodity, and that is because white male capitalist supremacists are too greedy and stupid to conceive of a world in which things don’t have price tags. It seems to baffle them. So instead of sex being a fun, social, exquisite, delightful pleasure that we experience freely and in abundance (even if it’s with the same person within a monogamous relationship, by the way — I’m not talking about “sex planet” here) it becomes something else, something less, something cheap, used for leverage, for personal gain, for power, for social standing, even just to put food on the table, which might be the saddest thing of all.

Well, I would encourage people to think differently about things and instead seek to frolic freely with the opposite sex at every opportunity. Go with your gut! Follow your bliss! You know you want to. Because at some point either men will need to stop paying for sex or women will need to stop asking for compensation for it. Who will make the first move? Maybe both? Well, let’s get with it, shall we??? :-))))))))))
