There comes a time ….

July 28, 2011

I once knew a guy who lived on Marco; his parents were immigrants from Russia, both single and met/married in America where Nick was born as the second child.  He was a wise man and self-made rich enough to retire in his late forties; age of 53 when I met him in 1981 but he lived like a pauper because he wanted to in an old trailer park with all the conveniences.  He ate and got drunk as often as he wanted to because he had the money; he washed and cleaned his person whenever he realized it was maybe time to do it but someone would have to come to his trailer home and haul him out of it for a full two days to clean the filth because Nick never washed a cup or bothered with his life scattered around on the floor and all over the place.  It was always in a mess.

 He eventually totaled a car and crippled himself; could hardly walk but still drove the new car occasionally before he got bedridden; never lost his humor or his brilliant mind.  One day we were just chatting; he was a great chatter and really loved people.  He always had time for a chat with whoever was present but didn’t take kindly to fools or arguments.  He was nearing his end.

 “You know, there comes a time when you have to pay for all the little sins that you committed two by two or even three in a row …. and you pay for them …. one by one,” he said.  He died shortly after that in 1998.

 I remember one of the first speeches by The One when his oratory with the strong pauses and incisive short statements, bowled half of America over.

 He enraptured the audience that evening with:

 “America will change ….the time for change has come …. America, the time has come.”

 He was drowned in applause several times and the audiences, Time Ragazine, Joe Klein and sixty million souls were ready to crown Him King or whatever He could have wanted or asked for.

 I remembered Nick this past week because, see, the time always comes when you have to pay for what you wanted or took for granted.  Nothing in life comes for free.

 Well, America also got what it wanted ….

 And now the time has come ….

Joe the Lamenting Man

July 24, 2011

Some of you may be pleased that I have changed my view on Time Rag Joe Klein.

 I have regarded him as a complete sod with a scrambled brain that is also seriously defect after too many election defeats for his White House candidates but he laments so passionately about not understanding the Bama on a certain point I decided that the things that I have called him and lampooning him all the time made me forget about the Bama effect on Joe.

 http://swampland.time.com/2011/07/23/two-compromises/

 I apologize for all the bad things that I have said of you in the past.  Your lament on not understanding the Bama on a certain point in the above link helped me to look for the true answer.

 And I found it; that is why I apologize to you personally from the depth of my heart and hope that you will forgive me.

 See Joe, unlike many others I don’t think that the Bama is stupid; he may be vain, arrogant, and deceitful and not to be trusted with anything but he is not stupid.  He is also a good politician, dresses well and reads a speech better than anyone; in short he has no peer in many of these things.

 The trouble is however, that he suffers from the “hearing deaf” syndrome and that is serious.  Next time just remember that when you want to lament some more.  The hearing deaf syndrome is the condition that one with normal or even good hearing suffers is not an ear or faulty hearing; it is in fact a psychological affliction that occurs when he doesn’t know what to do; he becomes deaf to advice at that point.

 Some experts say it is ego driven; others say it is a common affliction by people who inherited too many birth certificates; I dunno, but maybe I am wrong, or perhaps I don’t have complexes about birth certificates [having only one myself].

 Either way, when he gets an attack he starts twiddling with things like DADT and having beer with rowdy drunk professors and the biggest lot of bull poop; he just stops hearing.  It is a lousy affliction to suffer from, and when the job is bigger than you are competent it enhances the deaf effect.  Shucks.

 I actually now feel sorry for you and the Bama.  Poor little Joe, I really do.

Icarus, Space exploration, America, and Reality

July 22, 2011

You must blame my Blogging buddies JM, Cheechdog and the Nolanimrod if this Post offends you.

 JM you will find in

 http://jamiemacnab.wordpress.com/2011/07/21/i-dont-mean-this-to-be-personal/

 Cheechdog you will find everywhere if he doesn’t find you first and the Nolanimrod can be found in pensive mood as always in his Home Page:

http://nolanimrod.com/

 I contributed to JM’s recent Post as above [with the latest debt ceiling woes in America and Iran putting a War Fleet in the Atlantic Ocean in the back of my mind] when I remembered Icarus, the fellow who wanted to fly to the sun in old Mythology and the irony struck me.

 Many Folks in America seem surprised about the Iran decision and most are down in the dumps about their Country having lost their dominance in Space.  These things are only natural developments that they must expect if they keep on messing around in Iraq, Afghan, Egypt, Libya and Syria and on and on.

 As for the pipe dream of Space dominance they should thank their lucky stars that are at last rid of the Kennedy bunch, whose Jack had started the Moon Dream in order to get enough American votes to take him to the White House.

 Most people know that I am an agnostic about modern science.  Those who don’t know I ask to read my comments in JM’s Post and if it turns out to be relevant I shall publish the correspondence between us on Mankind and the Neanderthals that I allude to in the JM Post.

 Americans should learn by observing and following some of the examples of Russia and China.  Words like communism, socialism, Marxism should be scrapped from America’s list of imaginary threats.  These words are meaningless in today’s World; rather look at the mess you landed in with unbridled Capitalism and Freedom.

 Forget about Space Exploration and American dominance lost in it.  It was a pipe dream; concentrate on that debt ceiling and a solution for it.

 Well, I am into it so I may as well complete my legacy and make an utter fool of myself.

 Forget about alternative fuel, earth warming and clean coal to name but a few.  It’s pure nonsense, as is the pipe dream of wind energy, which in turn is no less a myth than old Icarus in his efforts to reach the Sun.

 Do as the Russians, China, India and many others; energy means coal and oil and will so for as long we live unless America really goes ahead to blow up the rest of the World; with a man like Obama at the helm you may just be silly enough to try it.

 One last completely idiotic statement should do it and destroy my credibility forever, but I shall put it in the form of two questions.  Who says oil and coal are non-renewable resources?  Who says the resources are not being renewed from the bottom up as we draw from the top?  I say they are being renewed every day in the same manner as the Lord Creator planned and provided a long time ago.  Who says new diamonds are not at this moment being formed by the same old process from which the first one that we found had come to be?

 Now have a go at me if you wish.

Obama running way ahead of the bunch in the Default race, going at full cry for Glory

July 16, 2011

Let me explain the basics of my theory first with the old story about the guy in Germany who had a suitcase full of all the money he had on his name after the Big War and wet decided to leave.  At the train station he looked away momentarily and when he looked back somebody had emptied the suitcase and ran off with it leaving all the money behind because it was worth less than the paper it was printed on.

 Today it is only slightly different.  Our forests are being depleted and trees from which paper is made can no longer be wasted on printing notes.  People know that the paperless office was a fallacy and that computers and the Internet have created ten times the amount of paper rather than less as they had promised.

 So they are feeling the shortage too and came with the computer chip.  Today your pension money or savings is not even on paper [which you can recycle and create something useful]; no, if a bank goes into default today all you will have is one small computer chip worth less than the paper used to print a billion dollars.

 The money in the World has virtually no hard asset backing; money laundering has grown out of any description in any modern vocabulary.  Billions and Trillions flash across the Worldwide Internet in seconds.  We don’t know how much of that is dirty money for laundering but I read just the other that Zurich has come to realize that their share of just Foreign Exchange transactions has been dwindling.  They had calculated the total value of that at  about Three Trillion USA dollars a day and they want their fair share.

 I have explained my view of the truth of Obama’s intentions [forget the front that he puts up in public] and recommend that you read it in the Post by my very dear friend and fellow Blogger.

 http://pumabydesign001.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/obama-%e2%80%9cthis-may-bring-my-presidency-down-but-i-will-not-yield-on-this%e2%80%9d-%e2%80%93-exactly-how-long-did-he-practice-that/

 Many other Blogs carried similar Posts but though I read a few others I couldn’t get to commenting in all of them.

 I have no reason at this midnight hour of Saturday, July 16, 2011 that has just now slipped into Sunday but let us assume for a moment that I am wrong and that he convinces/threatens or browbeats the GOP into giving him what he says he wants.  Will that save the day for America; sure enough a whole bunch of voters will glide their man to victory in 2012 and crown him Savior of America as is obviously their want.

 Will that really save America?  Why do you guys think China is expanding in virtually every other continent?  Why do you is Russia so quiet and not pumping much of their own oil?  They are now purported to have greater gold reserves than we ever had in South Africa but they hardly bother to mine the stuff.  Why?

 These two and many others know full well that America in on the verge of bankruptcy; that you have lost the moral high ground  and that the Arabs have now also turned against you because they don’t trust America.

 So then, what If I am not wrong?

 Contrary to some of the predicted gloom things won’t change much.  Obama will still be Savior and glide into 2012.  He will be helped along by the super-rich that will be a helluva lot richer than know.  Many of the neo-rich who were stupid enough and placed their money with investment bankers in worthless computer chips; but being crooks in the first place they will soon invent other lucrative avenues to steal and still end up wealthy.

 In this scenario crude oil will come at a premium; do remember the rich and the super rich couldn’t care one single nickel because they are all into the oil business in same way of another.

 China, and Russia and India will bail Obama out and get some more hefty Government guaranteed bonds on hefty slices of American soil that Obama will readily sign.  Why not?

 The Poor; oh yes I do admit that I almost forgot about them because I am effectively one of them.  We will suffer as we always do; we will bite the bullet and pull the belts in, drive less and less because gasoline will shoot up to $10 or $20 dollars a gallon.

 Obama will smile because he will surely have pledges under the table for at least ten or fifteen palatial retirement mansions  and move on to become richer that Bill Gates and Warren Buffett together.  And he will get his extra four years to destroy America which is really what he wants; it’s his old self-same grudge that Americans just don’t want to see.

 America will be virtually ungovernable even if Obama goes in 2012; if he stays until 2016 it will be completely ungovernable and at the mercy of North Korea and Iran.  These guys will have tiny high tech very long range intercontinental missiles by then and there is nothing the World is going to do to stop them because America has now gone rogue in the eyes of the World.

 Let us hope that my starting point is wrong; however; it won’t make much difference either way to the poor and the smaller countries and tribal lands if it should come to pass.

 Sorry Folks of the 50 States; though I cry for you the 57 States wanted it and may just get it if they are not careful.
