INFIDELS AND TERRORISTS, FEAR INC.

are_you_scared____red_by_xcomp

 

Are you scared yet?

When the fear party (GOP), screams about the terrorists and the terrorists are screaming about the Infidels from abroad or home grown, all these factions of fear do not belong in the Western Hemisphere. Infidels and terrorists represent a Crusade that should have become a video game and not a cause to die over.

We have played Infidel to people who fear that the same dreaded CRUSADING battle between Christian and Muslim will continue till the end of time, dragging dread through millennia and regurgitating itself almost every century in one form or another.

Business model continuous war.

Religious fanaticism is causing all this behavior. Holier than thou, fundamentalists, are ripening into strange fruit once visited on the different, the slave, the other. That shadow of religious rigidity is why our constitution separated Church and State.

MCC doesn’t care what religion or whether one practices any form of any belief system, you are free to have that experience here. That is the gift shared by the original people populating this hemisphere. Whatever you believe, it is a personal choice mostly taught as a cursory knowledge, and we don’t have to know it or have it shoved in our face as the only way, cause it isn’t the only way.

So zealots of all persuasions, you are here in America which by any other name is a special place of abundance and you are bringing your fears here choking that abundant life of gratitude.

How can anyone make sense of these times. In the spring the rumors that the global markets would crash during the summer spread throughout the financial world of investment banks. And that fear was realized in the summer with a crash that lasted a moment, or through September only to reverse itself in the next few months. We have a flat market in a flat world economically.

You want to get rich? Really rich, just get into some form of security business and sell fear. Fear has become the best game in town and even JT Barnum would have been impressed to see the suckers eating fear up. Republican candidates sell fear as the reason they should be elected, because they have more fear to sell. Optimism doesn’t make money.

Republicans have enjoyed thinking how to have FDR roll over in his grave with infinite plans to destroy the social safety network that raised so many from the depression Republicans thrive on. It is why Bush 2, went into Iraq to bust the American economy saddling soaring debt through the military buildups and wasteful programs.

America has a choice to buy fear or to believe in an optimistic future.

 

Which sort of American are you?

EXTRA EXTRA, BANKSY Does New York

MDC is pleased to be attending the Banksy Does New York premiere later this evening and to see our MDC clips featured in the documentary.

What a perfect use of the medium: a documentary premieres on HBO next Monday (Nov 17), filled with user-generated images about the stealth artist Banksy, whose images turned up in New York, fleetingly, and who counts on viewers’ reactions becoming part of his works. The experience of watching “Banksy Does New York” moves viewers to ask the same questions the artist poses: what is art, how does impermanence contribute or change the experience, what is the monetary value of an artwork? A cynic would argue, what good is putting street art on film or on the internet when it’s meant to be experienced in person, and only for a limited time?

Ultimately, though, what great fun, in a scavenge-hunter way, is this artist’s hit-and-run work? We should all have access via television.

Banksy, an elusive British street artist, political activist and satirist, is perhaps best known for his stenciled graffiti work and his film, “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” Among his notable works are a series of images at the Israeli West Bank Barrier, protesting the wall.

“Banksy Does New York,” and premiering Monday, Nov. 17 on HBO (9 p.m.), chronicles the month-long experiment during which Banksy announced he would post one unique piece or exhibit per day in an undisclosed place around New York. The resulting social media frenzy and mad dash to locate the day’s Banksy before it could be taken down or defaced is charted in the film. Pieces appeared in all five boroughs, treating subjects as diverse as Iraq and animal cruelty, in forms ranging from stencil to performance art to sculpture.

The thrill of the chase comes through in the film — another reason why it’s worth viewing the artworks in a documentary after the fact even if we weren’t on the street in the moment.

MDC send super Respect to Sam Simon

The co-creator of “The Simpsons” has no problem poking fun at his terminal cancer diagnosis. But when it comes to giving away every last cent of his fortune, that’s no laughing matter.

Two years ago, Sam Simon — also the comedic genius behind “Taxi” — was diagnosed with stage-4 colon cancer and given three to six months to live. Today, Simon, 59, continues to defy that original prognosis, but is wasting no time in preparing to donate his entire $100 million fortune to charity, he told Maria Shriver in a recent NBC News interview.

“In the hospital, right after [colon surgery], I realized I had to start making plans,” Simon told TMZ last year.

MDC also respects the creation of his animal sanctuary outside of Los Angeles.
The award-winning producer and director has pledged his millions to PETA, Save the Children and his eponymous foundation, which feeds more than 400 hungry families a day in Los Angeles, he told Shriver.

The generous mogul has two ex-wives, no heirs, and his loved ones are financially stable, according to Inside Philanthropy.

Simon said that this philanthropic process has been a form of “therapy” for him. Some of his greatest moments these days are watching animals that been caged up their entire lives “take their first steps on grass.”

The vehement animal rights activist is just as passionate about his work with children.

For nearly three decades, Simon has supported Save the Children’s work and has visited underserved kids across the globe to experience their strife firsthand.

Simon has met former child soldiers in Nepal, coffee farmers in Guatemala working to produce healthier foods for their families and young earthquake victims in Haiti.

In June, the organization named a global philanthropic community after the longtime benefactor.

“You know there are some shocking things,” Simon said in a statement. “But I remember kids playing with soccer balls made out of wire and newspaper — and for me to see happiness in the absence of anything that we would consider satisfying, from a material standpoint, was very inspirational, and is something that stays with you.”

YOU GOT, BLEACH IN YOUR BREAD

It’s illegal to use chemicals like chlorine and bromine to bleach flour in Europe. In the US, it’s standard operating procedure.

The original head of the FDA actually sued all the way to the Supreme Court to prohibit the bleaching of flour in the US and the Supreme Court agreed with him.

Their ruling was never enforced.

MDC shares the youtube video, The FDA Conspiracy & Bleached Flour.

The truth about white bread. What is enriched bleached white flour?
