Robert Palmer – Mercy Mercy Me

July 30, 2016

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind
That blows from the north, west, south and east
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
Oil wasted on the oceans and our seas
Fish full of mercury
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
Radiation underground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
What about this over-crowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?

 

Comment from Jerry Sullivan :

This protest song from Marvin brought Motown into the fray of the day… war, ecology, human rights… and he did it against the wishes of the Motown bosses. A brave move and done with such class!! Miss you Marvin and all the others who lost out to drugs and booze and the pressures of success. RIP BROTHER!!

Turkey coup: What does the state of emergency mean for democracy?

(excerpt)

Instead of passing laws through the usually long parliamentary process, the Cabinet can create a draft decree, and with the President’s approval, it will go to Parliament for a simple yes or no vote, to be made within 30 days.

Annuit cœptis

(excerpts)

Taken from the Latin words annuo (third-person singular present or perfect annuit), “to nod” or “to approve”, and coeptum (plural coepta), “commencement, undertaking”, it is literally translated, “[he/she/it] favors our undertakings” or “[he/she/it] has favored our undertakings” (annuit could be in either the present or perfect tense).[2]

Change from Deo Favente to Annuit Cœptis

Annuit Cœptis is translated by the U.S. State Department,[7] the U.S. Mint,[8] and the U.S. Treasury[9] as, “He [God] has favored our undertakings” (brackets in original). However, the original Latin does not explicitly state who (or what) is the subject of the sentence.[10] Robert Hieronimus, who wrote a Ph.D. dissertation about this portion of the Great Seal, argued that Thomson’s intent was to find a phrase that contained exactly 13 letters to fit the theme of the seal.[11] On the obverse was E Pluribus Unum (13 letters), along with 13 stars, 13 horizontal stripes (on the shield on back of the US $1 Dollar Bill), 13 vertical stripes, 13 arrows, 13 olive leaves, and 13 olives. The pyramid under the motto, Annuit Cœptis, has 13 letters. Deo Favente had only ten letters. According to Hieronimus, Annuit Coeptis has 13 letters and was selected to fit the theme.

Mother Goddess as Kali – The Feminine Force in Indian Art

(excerpt)

The image of a recumbent Shiva lying under the feet of Kali represents Shiva as the passive potential of creation and Kali as his Shakti. The generic term Shakti denotes the Universal feminine creative principle and the energizing force behind all male divinity including Shiva. Shakti is known by the general name Devi, from the root ‘div’, meaning to shine. She is the Shining One, who is given different names in different places and in different appearances, as the symbol of the life-giving powers of the Universe. It is she that powers him. This Shakti is expressed as the i in Shiva’s name. Without this i, Shiva becomes Shva, which in Sanskrit means a corpse. Thus suggesting that without his Shakti, Shiva is powerless or inert.

Kali is a particularly appropriate image for conveying the idea of the world as the play of the gods. The spontaneous, effortless, dizzying creativity of the divine reflex is conveyed in her wild appearance. Insofar as kali is identified with the phenomenal world, she presents a picture of that world that underlies its ephemeral and unpredictable nature. In her mad dancing, disheveled hair, and eerie howl there is made present the hint of a world reeling, careening out of control. The world is created and destroyed in Kali’s wild dancing, and the truth of redemption lies in man’s awareness that he is invited to take part in that dance, to yield to the frenzied beat of the Mother’s dance of life and death.

’Send My Love (To Your New Lover)’ is taken from the new album, 25, out now. http://adele.com
