Salient Comment on Where have all the jobs gone?

Where have all the jobs gone? - CBS News:

"Technology is getting so advanced, it is replacing jobs. This started a long time ago, and when it started, a lot of people were worried that computers and technology would actually accomplish this. They were right. . . . If you have any doubts about this, just do a little reading about present-day Artificial Intelligence . . . . AI. If you think your job is not threatened by AI, you might want to update yourself on what AI is doing nowdays. So . . . now that the rich have the means to produce without having workers, do they still have the right to say that if you do not work, you should starve? Not everyone can be an AI programmer. I say we are on the cusp of a great change in society and the way things work, and, we need to find a way to adapt to it, without letting the fascists take over, nor letting common man become so lazy and complacent that he lets the fascists take over. . ."

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
