CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.
On 2017-05-09 Trump fired FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) Director James Comey, then over a period of days offered eight different rationalisations for doing so. When each excuse failed to fly, he made up another, making it even more obvious everything he said was a pack of lies. It is obvious he did it because Comey was heading an investigation into Trump and Putin colluding to fix the 2016 election. Comey was getting too close to finding impeachable crimes.
Here are a few of Trump’s excuses.
This video The March Of Reason contains a number of interviews with fundamentalists. Watch the way they speak. They sound normal, then it is almost as if some other personality takes over and starts talking for them in a very mechanical way. If you did not know about religion, you would think it was some kind of brain damage. In this state, they mechanically quote pat phrases that make little sense. All logical ability disappears. They imagine they are speaking self-evident, obvious facts, when it actuality it is gibberish. In this state, their individual lives are meaningless. All that counts is spreading the message. This is what Darrel Ray calls parasitical infection by the God Virus.The God Virus: How religion infects our lives and culture ~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
Right of Corporations To lie
Cigarette companies in Australia are demanding to be compensated for loss of sales when the Australian government insisted on truth in advertising, putting grim images of the consequences of smoking on the packs. Cigarette companies seem to think they have a constitutional right to lie to their customers and to kill them off. They should feel fortunate we tolerate them at all. They are in roughly the same position as the makers of heroin.
Why would anybody start smoking? Everyone who smokes tells you they wish they could quit, even if just to save the money. Anyone who tricks another into starting should be hanged.
We have a ridiculously high tolerance for being lied to by corporations. Oil companies claim they have state-of-the-art technology to clean up oil spills when the truth is they can only recover at best 5% of the crude once it hits the water and have no technology at all to clean up a bitumen spill.
Kellogg’s Corn Flakes fills the giant boxes only half full. Shampoo makers advertise all natural but when you read the fine print all the ingredients are chemicals with unpronounceable names, except for aqua which they use to disguise simple water.
When you sign up for Internet service the bill is 25% higher than promised because of all manner of fees and it is much slower than advertised.
Your food can be irradiated or genetically modified without labelling. The government conspires with agribusiness to make sure you do not know. Those 10-year energy saver bulb die after 9 months. Liquid soaps from China are advertised to smell like lemons and grapefruits but when you open them, they smell like pig vomit.
Then there is Post Cereals and its phony premiums. You comply with all the rules and send away for your $35 Reebok PlayDry Tee shirt and get nothing, not even an apology.
Then there is Dawn dish detergent that promises to donate $1 from the sale of each bottle to help clean oil-soaked wildlife. Then you read the fine print and discover they do no such thing.
And that does not begin to tackle the problem of incompetently designed products, like Brita pitchers, nearly all electric kettles and Colgate toothpaste that explodes if you take it on an airplane, or Campbell’s Chicken à la King with only one chunk of chicken per can.
We have been far too resigned. We need to fight back at crooked corporations. An honest corporation is now a rarity.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
