Music Night: We are the 99%

This country is resembling a clusterfuck every single damn day:

“Wall Street’s doing great!!”  Yay, we rich people are still doing well.

“ObamaCare, MediCaid, MediCare, Section 8, food stamps, heat assistance, etc., are socialist programs and the most horrible things that ever happened on the planet!”  Seriously, I worked hard for my trust fund/inheritance, and only took a piddly million dollar loan from my dad once or twice.  You losers need to get jobs.

I could go on, but you get the picture.  WHAT. ABOUT. US?

  1. By the way: Green Day’s “American Idiot” album, beside being the best rock opera since Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” is an almost perfect rendition of Joseph Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey” into contemporary rock. Each song is a mirror image of the opposite (“American Idiot” — “Whatever happend to what’s her name?” (overture — epilogue) / “Jesus of Suburbia” — “Homecoming” (the hero leaves/returns)


    Look at how each song sets out the hero’s awakening, departure, descent, failure, enlightenment, awakening, return.

    I’m not convinced they (Green Day) had any notion of what they were doing, but that is the thing about mythological imagery: It is universal with or without you.

  2. On AM Joy, Frank Schaeffer is just livid with the defense of and by Roy Moore. He’s angrier than I’ve ever seen him.

  3. Well, since Putin told Trump (again), that Russia didn’t interfere in the US election, and Trump says he believes him, it proves Trump really is a Republican, because they all only believe things they want to hear in the first place.

    • out·li·er
      a person or thing situated away or detached from the main body or system.
      “less accessible islands and outliers”
      a person or thing differing from all other members of a particular group or set.
      “an outlier in Faulkner’s body of work”

      Words have meaning, Toomey. The majority of people (or anything), by definition, cannot be fucking outliers.
