Devotion


A person who loves his or her daily work, away or at home, is truly happy...

"And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth. It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house. It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit, And to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and watching."--- Gibran

--->Keep the 'Change,' Mr. President. "If you’re still surprised at Obama’s betrayal, it’s time to expand your horizons and see the facts. He’s a made man in The Money Party. For those with an empirically justified cynical attitude, this all makes sense. Once elected, Obama wasted no time in paying back those who put him in power. He appointed Larry Summers as chief economic architect and NY Fed President Timothy Geithner as Secretary of the Treasury. We really don’t need any more narrative to determine how the story comes out...Swallow hard and read on...(click)

Note: Mr. Obama, alas, is a war economy President, just like Mr. Bush. He has escalated the war (singular) into wars (plural), open and covert in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Torture and 'rendition' remain, even as he is presiding over a massive increase of Panoptic surveillance of the American people; and, as stated, he appointed the Wall Street culprits who are responsible for global meltdown to his administration, and nine-tenths of all the peoples wealth is plundered, funneled to the top and shared by those perched there, while the middle and bottom are disenfranchised...Meanwhile, like Caesar of old, he throws some crumbs to the Plebs from time to time, as the foreclosures go on apace...

--->It takes my breath away. US Treasuries suffered their biggest two-day sell-off since the collapse of Lehman Brothers, following a torrid month that has seen borrowing costs for western governments soar. “You could argue that we are at a new stage where the global cost of capital goes higher and higher,” said Steven Major, global head of fixed income research at HSBC...Read on (click) [might need a strong drink. Never in the history of this country have so many been exploited by so few. If monopolies are not busted up, then we will be told to "assume the Position"].

Look folks, we Baby Boomers are through, all washed up. Done. Finis. We stole your God, your decent values, killed your babies [the future, the children who would have helped and protected you], gave you AIDS, ruined your environment, launched more and more planetary wars. After serving a brief stint in Hippiedom we combed our hair and put on suits, we blew up cynical Shylock bubbles, enticed you to invest so that we could suddenly withhold the credit while you slept, we popped the illusion of Credit Card wealth, burst the bubble, then we allowed the vultures to swoop down to pick up the assets which you thought were your own. Sorry about that. So now we repent and seek to show what we should have done. Dying people tell few lies, so it's time to hear our sorry story---for your children's sake.

--->Is Amazon Evil? "Jeff" Bezos (born January 12, 1964) is the founder, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Amazon.com. He sells us books cheap. But he also hates real, physical books and may be out to eliminate them altogether. That is one definition of a devil in my books...

Distributism. Check it out: Neither socialism nor laissez faire capitalism, it seeks to bust monoplies, and create the widest possible economic environment for truly free private ownership. Time for real not faux change. Follow Label below.
