MY REASONS

MY REASONS

I know, some of you may find my blog long winded, and I totally understand. But as you look around and try to understand why the world is suddenly upside down, if not your own life, yet. Then you must understand that I have to try and explain what is happening and why things are the way they are, and what is next in the life of this country, life of the world and your life.

You may wish to laugh at me now, but you are always welcome to look through the archives here and tell me where I had been wrong before , and what i had said was wrong, then you will understand what is next and why.

THE MORE THE THINGS CHANGE

03/30/2009

THE MORE THE THINGS CHANGE

In case anyone here is confused, we elected Obama (not by my vote though, he is president) for change, and in case you are confused as to what has changed, let me tell you that nothing has changed.

If you listen to the right wing nuts or the Republicans, you would believe that Obama is a socialist and wants to tax the rich, so that the poor can live on welfare and make more babies, (mostly black and illegals).

In reality though, Obama has continued the transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich just as the Republicans have been doing for thirty years. I have previously shown how the rich enrich themselves by usurping the work (wealth is only created by labor adding value to a marketable product) of the workers by keeping the wages and benefits low. I have also shown that the "wealth", for the benefit of the rich, in the world was being created by the governments of the world going in debt, and workers pawning their future earnings to by products on borrowed money.

It is slowly becoming apparent to the masses that the money that the government is borrowing for bail outs is actually being transferred to the real rich that remain nameless as of yet.

Timothy Geithner is a liar, only yesterday he was more polished in his lie telling( Face the Nation). He sounded knowledgeable because he had practiced his lies and did not have to stop and think up an explanation.

When they keep talking about taxpayers, they are not talking about the rich, since they are already getting the money even if they have to pay some of it back at a later time. They are talking about the average person who will be left holding the bag, ( an empty bag in this case) and will have to pay back the money.

So when some one talks about transfer of wealth, remember it is still going money from the workers to the rich on top. Obama has not changed a damn thing , he should be called out on it!

here as a reminder is my post from

SLAVERY
It is a basic economic fact that in a market where labor is plentyful, the wages will drop. So it follows that when we live in a global market and this market has a glut of workers, pretend as we may the wages and thus the standard of living of the working class must fall. And what is service economy anyway. Service by definition does not produce anything and does not add value to anything, be it making of a burger or advice from a banker. You could always make a burger your self , go to a fast food restaurant and pay three dollars or go to a fancy bistro and pay eight dollars, it is still a burger, and the same advice you get from a banker could be gleaned from a magazine or researched on the net. As we are finding out that the certain office duties or banking functions can be performed anywhere in the world, thus no chance for one to improve their lot in life by extra hard work or education. As we watch we are being sold into slavery without being aware of it , YET. (M.N.R.)

TERRROR IN PAKISTAN, AGAIN

TERRROR IN PAKISTAN, AGAIN


When an average person thinks whatever they are doing is within the teachings of their belief then falsehoods take root, we forgot that the basic tenant of religion is taking care of the community, the poor and the widows and orphans, not trying to get in to paradise. We , all of us, put more emphasis on getting into paradise, getting to paradise should just happen incidently because you were doing good, true worship, Ibada.

Justice, and elimination of corruption, bribery, and the nepotism, the rich taking care of the other rich and no one taking care of the poor, increase in poverty and hunger, uncontrolled birth rate are all causes of terrorism at a deeper level, we will have these problem so long as there is corruption in the system, drones or not.

LESS THAN MEETS THE EYE

The retail in January and February picks up as Federal employees and retires recive pay increase, social security payments increase, and more so since the new electronic filings the tax refunds and recieved and spent earlier in the year that it used to be. Most recipient of the tax refunds plan to and spend the money on major purchases.With people losing jobs at the rate of over 500,000 a month It is hard to see how the spending increases can hold up.

UNITED STATES BEING RUN BY IDIOTS

03/26/2009

UNITED STATES BEING RUN BY IDIOTS

We really need a presidential declaration that the United States of America is being run by idiots, it is only fair you know, to warn everyone that wants to be like us or deal with us to warn them we don't really know what in the hell are we doing here. First of all we are say 46% Republican and 46% Democrat country and 8 % who don't count for anything any way and have no say so in the goings on. But at any given time each of the 46% is trying to prove that the other 46% percent are absolutely wrong, and guess what, they are absolutely right.

Look at our defence spending, social security, welfare policy, deregulation of the markets, abortion or not, health care (private or socialized) all are failures in toto. Our education system is failing regardless of the amount of money spent, we did not know 9/11 was coming or that Iraq did not have weapons of any destruction. We did not see the dot com bubble and did not see the current crash coming, or that the housing was over priced.

Yet we keep listening to the same experts and keep reelecting the same morons to the congress and the senate, Democrat or Republican.

CHANGE WE DO NOT BELIEVE IN

03/25/2009


CHANGE WE DO NOT BELIEVE IN


Let us understand this first, the housing mess, the bad assets, whatever you call it, these houses were build with money that never existed, loaned to people who could not pay it back , by the people (banks, financial institutions, hedge funds, insurance companies) who did not have it in the first place!

So what is our government up to now? We know that the crisis in the economy today was brought on by the bankers. Millions today are homeless, jobless, broke, in part due to their own stupidity and greed, and in part due to the greed and the scams of the bankers.

But as millions lose their homes and their futures the government is bent on giving money and guarantees to the bankers who brought us here.

It is Wall street stealing money form people all over again, what has changed here from the government changing hands from the Republicans to the Democrat majorities in both house and the Senate and a Democrat in the White house. We are still handing over the keys to the kingdom to the same batch of thieves.

I have explained elsewhere that when the government spends borrowed money, the money ultimately ends up with the richest, ( who again with lower taxes get to keep the most of it )now the government is willing to borrow the money and hand it over directly to the rich without any benefit to the working and the working poor.

Another fact is that the when government borrows money, it is paying more in interest than the FED charges its "member banks", thus the bank can make money it does not have just on the spread,

That is the banking, housing, rescue plan of Obama and Geithenr and Bernanke and company now, to write IOUs on behalf of the American public, and hand over the cash to the bankers directly to buy the so called "bad assets".

A RESET TO DEFAULT

03/25/2009

A RESET TO DEFAULT

Recently I had an opportunity to sit in on a meeting of an imam, a rabbi and a preacher of the gospel of Christ trying to bring the "communities of faith" to get along and act together for the common good of the community and the humanity. It was and uncommon pleasure indeed to see that at least some people of God were willing to let the God do His own thing in His own time, and just to get along here on earth in peace. May be IF there were to be a "GOD", HE might like it.
It is not to say that I Believe! My observations of the people of God and their follies is no secret. I actually love to expose the inherent hypocrisies of the religious. Mostly two faced, holier than thou good for nothings who look down upon seculars as know nothings. (click on the title of this article to read more)

How often in the history of God man has gone astray and then only reverted back to basics when **it has finally hit the fan.

I do not believe in a deity per se, but if it works for you then it is ok with me, I do however believe that the ancients were on to something when they wrote books and set the boundaries of human and community behavior, some today called that a religion, I call it common sense.

Man kind can not exist without boundaries of character. One of these being "Thou shalt not covet".

If you were to open your eyes , look around and see, you will see that the economic mess that we are in is in the whole based on unbridled coveting, we as a nation and the world fell into the coveting trap.

While I sat through the meetings, last two Tuesdays, and enjoyed the message that some in different beliefs are still willing to put their personal beliefs aside and work for the common good of humanity, my mind was still occupied with the thoughts of those who are so damn willing to go to heaven that they are willing to do everything that is barred by the commandments of their own "GODS".

DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS, OR WHATEVER!

03/23/2009

DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS, OR WHATEVER!

Oh my, white powder! or a green economy, only if I had not been sober since the late seventies, the treasury has a plan, and the markets are up, Dow is up over three hundred, the recession must be over, the Armageddon is stared down at the free markets door step.

And I don't have any white powder or any green leafy substance, or the good pills that Alice took.

As the rabbit spoke, Alice could "see" his words, taking the shape of a tail, she was lost in her own thoughts, and could see the story words forming in the shape of a tail, a twisted and a tortured tail. The tail was scary, ( read below), and it pronounced a death.

We are a good people, compassionate, and caring and utterly immature, perpetually immature.

Where is this money coming form, and how will it be paid back? What IS Obama's plan?

We spent eight years listening to Mr. Bush about how the wealth was being created, and I was warning about us being the brokest country on the plane. He told us to go out and spend money, and we did, and he spent the country in to bankruptcy, while we borrowed more of the money being created out of thin air.

Now Obama is going to fix all the problems of this country, with the money he does not have, and all will be well, in the land of OZ, formerly known as the US of A.


We can not solve all the problems with money, NO SIR! No more than we can fix all ailments with snake oil. Our problems are structural and very much human. I have argued for years that we waste money in education when the kids are not willing to learn, where the parents don't give a damn and where the kids are more interested in screwing, and foot ball and beauty pageants.
We can not solve the crime problems where the kids are had just for having kids, and then thrown out to raise themselves while the "parents" are trying to get their own lives together.

Similarly we can not fix the jobs problems when we say we are committed to a global economy, we can not increase wages and reduce poverty when someone overseas can do the job cheaply, and we can provide health benefits when we want everyone to live for ever, even the brain dead ones.

So here is the only question I want to ask Obama, Geithner , Bernanke and Bush, tell me the truth please, will things will EVER be as good as we had, or are we in for a long long period of depressed economy, higher joblessness, more poverty, more crime, fewer people with health benefits, no retirement. Are we not just another third world country?

WHERE IS MY NOBLE PRIZE IN ECONOMICS???

WHERE IS MY NOBLE PRIZE IN ECONOMICS???

Bernanke defends big bank bailouts

""NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke responded to ongoing criticism of the government's efforts to keep alive institutions it has deemed "too big to fail," saying that this is an "enormous problem" that needs to be addressed.
Speaking before a group of community bankers in Phoenix, the central bank chief argued that actions taken thus far to prop up the nation's largest banks have been extremely unpleasant, but necessary to preventing further harm across financial markets and the broader economy.
"I do not think we have had a realistic alternative to preventing such failures," he said."
" Many smaller community banks avoided making too many subprime mortgages and also did not own the types of toxic securities backed by these loans that have plagued big banks. """

I believe it is high time, as I have previously suggested, that Bernanke, Paulson and Geithner, Greenspan etal, not just be put on stand, or in congressional hearing, we need to give these "experts" lie detector tests, the FBI needs to be looking in to this mess that we are in, and find out who knew what and when and how this racket was continued. It is hard to believe that myself with no more than two quarters of economice saw this coming many years ago, while these giants of ecoonomics never saw it coming.

Once again, I am not worried about the hundred forty/ sixty million in bonuses, what I do want to know where the one hundred seventy BILLION to the AIG went to, how many individual millionaires and billionaires benefited from this bail out ( got the government, tax payer money) and that is the real story.

FREE WILL??

03/18/2009




You know, you should know I have problems with religions, I have bigger problems with the religious of every stripe, I am not impressed by what you believe in, I am impressed only by what you ARE!
Religion it self is anti reason,  (no, your one too), first there is no karma, if it were true the poor would be rich and the rich would be poor, off and on, the torturers would be getting caught in combines in a field or run over by steam rollers on the pavements, and of course the bankers would find their homes looted and their bank accounts stolen, the people who starve the hungry around the world for profits would find them selves lost in the mountains without food or shelter, it does not happen.
If there is a god's plan, and a god's will then the man can not have free will, people do not choose to be poor, illiterate, blind, be stricken with cancer, if god has a plan it is a damn lousy one.

LIES THAT WE ARE TOLD

03/18/2009

LIES THAT WE ARE TOLD

So we hear all the noise about how this that and the other politician is helping fix the economy, so are they?

The biggest lie being told , right now, is the bank bail out. Who is actually being bailed out? And how does it help you get a job is a mystery, but we are being led to believe that it is working, that it will work.

If I am to believe that in a down economy, with consumption going down, and people not having any money, if only we could give money to the banks to make loans, they will, and everyone will get a job, and I do believe them then you don't need to read what I write. What will you think if i told you that I am going to open a bar, a restaurant, or start a trucking company, build a new mall, will you loan me any money? no , neither will the bank. Banks may have money to loan, but no sane person will go and borrow it, if they know they will have to pay it back. That is why the government is ready to guarantee just about any loan, business or personal. And this will put us back in the same hole we are trying to get out of.


The politicians are all over the place grand standing, they are so angry that the AIG execs are getting big bonuses, and you are impressed, dutifully impressed, right? And they are haggling over a hundred sixty million dollars of YOUR money. Right.

Can any one please tell me where these people were when the US government took on ten plus TRILLION dollars in debt, without a discussion in the congress, or without an authorization to raise the national debt limit.

They are all talking about the recovery, of jobs being created, has anyone been talking about the increasing homelessness and what we are to do about it? The increase in crime, petty or otherwise, where we will place these new millions of "criminals"? What police force will be available? Or even how we propose to feed the the new millions of the poor and hungry? The current welfare systems are being stretched already.,

BERNEKE PLAN FOR RECOVERY

03/17/2009

BERNENKE PLAN FOR RECOVERY

Is there any doubt that living out the "Alice in Wonderland", I showed you previously how our education system is wholly based on the Alice in wonderland "caucus race", (SO, WHY ASK ALICE). If you listen closely this is also the Bernenke plan for recovery. The mouse proposes a plan to dry out Alice and others who are wet from the "Pool of Tears" by speaking on a dry subject, recovery in this case is the elusive "IT".


At last the Mouse, who seemed to be a person of authority among them,called out, 'Sit down, all of you, and listen to me! I'LL soon make you dry enough!' They all sat down at once, in a large ring, with the Mouse in the middle. Alice kept her eyes anxiously fixed on it, for she felt sure she would catch a bad cold if she did not get dry very soon.'Ahem!' said the Mouse with an important air, 'are you all ready? This is the driest thing I know. Silence all round, if you please! "William the Conqueror, whose cause was favoured by the pope, was soon submitted to by the English, who wanted leaders, and had been of late much accustomed to usurpation and conquest. Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria--"''Ugh!' said the Lory, with a shiver.'I beg your pardon!' said the Mouse, frowning, but very politely: 'Did you speak?''Not I!' said the Lory hastily.'I thought you did,' said the Mouse. '--I proceed. "Edwin and Morcar,the earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him: and even Stigand,the patriotic archbishop of Canterbury, found it advisable--"''Found WHAT?' said the Duck. 'Found IT,' the Mouse replied rather crossly: 'of course you know what "it" means.'' I know what "it" means well enough, when I find a thing,' said the Duck: 'it's generally a frog or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?' The Mouse did not notice this question, but hurriedly went on, '"--found it advisable to go with Edgar Atheling to meet William and offer him thecrown. William's conduct at first was moderate. But the insolence of his Normans--" How are you getting on now, my dear?' it continued, turning to Alice as it spoke.

'As wet as ever,' said Alice in a melancholy tone: 'it doesn't seem to dry me at all.'

"Later this year the recovery will begin", we may still all be wet, for a very very long time.

AN ISSUE OF FAIRNESS

03/16/ 2009

AN ISSUE OF FAIRNESS


As the joblessness increases so does the poverty and the homelessness. We are a nation of compassionate people and want to help the poor, so I am right so far, right?

Here are two problems, we are a broke nation borrowing money , even from other countries to keep going, "temporarily" even though this temporary situation has lasted over a generation while the fix is just over the horizon. Are you with me so far?

We are borrowing money from the people, who have no money to give, their own people have no health care or welfare system like ours, where the poor can live in comfortable homes and have air conditioning and color TVs, large screen minds you. Why their poor should be obligated to support our poor.

Two and this is the worst, the new homeless, living in shelters and tent cities and parking lots are the ones who up until recently had worked, had jobs and even homes. While they are forced to live in these conditions people who have never worked or did not make an effort to improve themselves and have been on the dole for long periods get to stay in comfort.

It is time, while we are solving other problems, welfare system needs and immediate looking into, we need to provide equal measures of comfort and support to all, if we must, and unfair and unequal welfare program will cause us problems soon if not corrected.

NEVER NEVER LAND

So now the chancellor of the ex-chequer, that is treasury secretary to you and me, warns against pay increases in the face of 3.6% inflation in a month.

Can you tell the difference between the truths that you "KNOW" , and reality?

Did I not tell you many years ago that we were being sold in to slavery. One thing good about owning the slaves is that you get to chose whom you want to feed and who you want to keep. and this economic crisis increases in magnitude, surely people will be willing to work food, or food and shelter. Once you have enslaved a people, it is easy to bargain the terms of their employment.

""""The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice.
`Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'
`What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. `Explain yourself!'
`I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, sir' said Alice, `because I'm not myself, you see.'
`I don't see,' said the Caterpillar.
`I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly,' Alice replied very politely, `for I can't understand it myself to begin with; and being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing.' """"

PAKISTAN ON THE BRINK

03/14/2009

PAKISTAN ON THE BRINK


For sixty years Pakistan has been ruled by thugs and thieves, that's why I had wrriten to President Bush to stop lying that he wants democracy in that country, and supporting Benazir. In the end Benazir did go to Pakistan and was killed.
Zardari , a crook that he has been all his life, was elected by the illiterate masses in sympathy and now he is showing himself out to be what he always has been. a thug and a thief.

It has been the policy of the West to support any one corrupt or corruptible, for the leadership in the Middle East, and elsewhere as long as they agreed to kow tow to the West and sell out their own populace.

In Pakistan US may have chewed up that they are able to swallow, one, Pakistan is a nuclear armed country, two they have an Islamic insurgency that is proving to be more capable than Pakistan forces can handle, three, Zardari is after all a Sindhi, with very little support from the majority especially now that he has usurped the power of Nawaz Sharif. Unless the military once again steps in Pakistan will break out in to chaos, in a very short order.

A civil war, a clear possibility, or the break up of the country in to will have severe consequences far beyond its borders, and India may try to step in to the breech.

I had written Bush, that he was lying about Benazir, Us will suffer the consequence of baring a false witness.

SEX AND FORECLOSURES

03/13/2009

SEX AND FORECLOSURES


So you say how is sex related to foreclosures? Let me explain, in today's society it is not uncommon for a woman to have a child or two from a previous relationship when she gets in a new relationship ( it could also be a man). Let's say they are from middle class or better and buy a home depending partly on the child support income from the previous partner to pay expenses, even some of the mortgage payment. Now in these tough economic times if that previous partner losses their job and the child support stops, you know what will happen next.

Also as the job loses increase, we have laws on the books to jail "dead beat" parents, all these people who now can not afford to make child support payments also actually face being jailed and also have child support payments acculmulate to the point that getting a job would be meaning less if all you can do is to forward your pay check to the courts to pay off the cost of your old relations.

OK ! SO WHY ASK ALICE


Well , some people think that Nostradamus had hidden messages in his writings, that he predictied the future.

In the example shown below from the "Alice in Wonderland" did you catch it? It shows the American Education System, still clueless?

Here is the Americna Education system in a nutshell

'Why,' said the Dodo, 'the best way to explain it is to do it.' (And, as you might like to try the thing yourself, some winter day, I will tell you how the Dodo managed it.)

First it marked out a race-course, in a sort of circle, ('the exact shape doesn't matter,' it said,) and then all the party were placed along the course, here and there. There was no 'One, two, three, and away,' but they began running when they liked, and left off when they liked, so that it was not easy to know when the race was over. However, when they had been running half an hour or so, and were quite dry again, the Dodo suddenly called out 'The race is over!' and they all crowded round it, panting, and asking, 'But who has won?' This question the Dodo could not answer without a great deal of thought, and it sat for a long time with one finger pressed upon its forehead (the position in which you usually see Shakespeare, in the pictures of him), while the rest waited in silence.
At last the Dodo said, 'EVERYBODY has won, and all must have prizes.'

THE FUTURE IS HERE

NPR had a disscussion of the new economy and the future, on their program, "ON POINT" with Tom Ashbrook, (onpointradio.org) it is linked to the title here and you can hear the discussion yourself and read the comments.


I have discussed these same problems in my article, "A new world order, 2003", posted below. The idea of ever expanding economy, consumerism, commercialism is all counter to the future of the humanity, the world. A profit based economy looking for more consumers, and more profits is counter intutive. We are running out of land, out of water and even out of fish in the ocean.

Population control, lower standard of living for all but a few, enforced shorter life spans, euthenasia, selective breedings, are all in the near future and need to be discussed and faced, we can go in to the future blind and we will still get there, lets get to the point.

REMEMBERING PROPHET'S TEACHINGS

03/10/2009

REMEMBERING PROPHET'S TEACHINGS

I wish while you were at it, you would have discussed the problem of Islamic genocide in Darfur, and blood letting of Muslims by Muslims in Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine,Egypt, Afghanistan and elsewhere. I think you forgot that the prophet called All Muslims brothers, which is not shown by any Islamic country within her own populace or to the populace of other Islamic countries. We respect more the christians and whites than other Muslims or the people of brown skins, truth is a commodity and you used it sparingly to your own advntage only, this is hypocrisy (nifaq) not truth, Muslims have no leg to stand on in these problems in duscussions with non Muslims. I have heard that the last words of the prophet were " Umati, Umati, Umati", and not the oil momney, oil money, oil money, is that true?
AS the Islamic countries, not naming a particular name right here now, appease the "fundamentalists", to stay in power they also lessen their own chances of reform, and then get in trouble with so called moderates and seculars. Look at what is happening in Pakistan, it could happen elsewhere also. Read the stories of the Mufti refusing to anull the marriage of a eight year old, or the widow being sentenced to lashing for being in company of boy who had brought her bread and no more,

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/saudiarabia/4964935/Saudi-court-sentences-widow-75-to-lashes-for-mingling-with-men.html

was Islam to be religion void of reason compassion and education?

http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2006/09/beyond-stupid-god-and-immortal-man.html

Islam will not be dishonered by any actions of the non- Muslims, while Muslims regimes the world over practice corruption and injustice, both by Islamists and the seculars (moderate) Muslims.
I will be posting the copies of this letter on my blogs. sincerely

CHILDREN OF MUSLIM FATHERS

May be it is also time for us to recognize that many Saudis and other Muslims that travel to foreign countries like Bangkok, India and England etc. fornicate there and leave their bastard offsprings. I personally know some young people whose Muslim fathers (some married back home) had relationships over here while they were on government sponsered military training.

Rihanna and the Reality of Abuse

comments on an npr show

A timely show since I had already commented today about the teen suicide , below, we need to learn to connect the dots.

It is ironic, the same psychologists and anthropoligists that call the multiple relations of couples as the normal human behavior and thenature are shocked and surprised that the beating up women is also instinctive and natural, especially if a woman is agressive or independent. When a woman gets out of line she is beaten, be it in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan or an African country or the United States, no matter how we try to sound and be different. Sexual violance is the cost of “sexual freedom”. Obsession, possession, harrassment, stalking, call it what you may is a part and parcel of the sexual freedoms that we want to enjoy. You can not oout law human nature. Ancients tried to cordon the human behavior with establishment of silly little guidelines like, one man one woman, no coveting,no adultery, and damn sure no “dating”, no boy griends and girl friends. But what did they know?

I did not get to hear the whole show today, did any one mention the female teen suicide after her sexted nudie was shared by her ex -bf,

TEEN SUCIDE ( SEXTING)






Here we are again, one more child dead, one more mother blaming the school, anyone , but herself and her daughter for the tragedy. What was the fault of the school? What could they have done to stop the boys, other then may be tell them not to talk about her daughter being a slut, but would that have stopped anyone, what about the right of free speach, here see, we are confused.

Do we not realize, sex is not a children's game,or a right or a need. Sex is something we do in a marriage, not a committed realtionship, not something to do with anyone anywhere to relieve the stress, or to show appericiation, sex is killing us.

A NOTE FROM A MORAL AUTHORITY (ARAB NEWS)

03/06/2009


A NOTE FROM A MORAL AUTHORITY (ARAB NEWS)


It would be shameful If I did not take due notice of the moral outrage exhibited by the Arab News on line in the case of the warrants issued for the arrest of Omar Bashir, President of Sudan.

"The decision by the International Criminal Court of Justice to issue an arrest warrant for President Omar Bashir of Sudan on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur reeks of hypocrisy. What about the war crimes committed by George W. Bush and Tony Blair in Iraq and the war crimes committed by Ehud Olmert and the rest of the Israeli government in Gaza? What about the war crimes of Ariel Sharon in Lebanon? Where are the arrest warrants for them?"


http://arabnews.com/?page=7&section=0&article=119936&d=6&m=3&y=2009


In the same day news items there is one about the "Arab lawmakers condemn the warrants against Bashir", and one about why "West should not give up on Pakistan", as well the article questions the lack of success of Muslims in resolving their own problems.

In my mind, I have difficulty keeping things separated, so all of these articles get connected.
Why are Bush and Blair not indicted you ask? Who were the biggest supporters of the Egyptian and the Saudi regimes I wonder. Is it not biting the hand that feeds you .
I have railed against the stupid US polices for a long time, as pertaining to the Middle East and the Islamic worlds. And so much is true that US and Britain are both supporters of murderous and oppressive regimes elsewhere in the region. I was against our invasion of Iraq as well as the call of Bush for democracy in Pakistan which upturned the apple cart there.

I smiled though when I read the litany of charges against the various African regimes, and the discussion of the cleptocracy in Pakistan, by all mean the list is not inclusive so it sounds like that pot calling the kettle black.

VOODOO ECONOMICS


Some fifteen years ago, just before Christmas, a co -worker of mine received a credit card in the mail. We worked at a gas station, so the credit card only had a some five hundered dollar credit limit. Needless to say that weekend she not only went shopping for Christmas, she and her family also stayed at to motel in Dothan and called out for pizza. Before the night was out they had spent the credit limit and gone over some too. Let me ask you now would you elect that lady to run our country?

The problem is that our country IS being run today by some people with the same kind of fiscal responsibility. About two years ago, i wrote a series in this space, (letters to the Dothan Eagle), where i had not only discussed the need for raising taxes to solve our budget problems and also to improve the condition of our social -security mess.

Let me back up here and discuss some about the current economy, before the elections we were told that Mr Bush had stopped drinking and other stuff. Then what is he doing? If there are new factories going up around the country I want us to be told. Sure there is an economic boom, houses and condos are going up everywhere and new eating places and malls also, but we are still buying more from other countries than we can really afford. We are borrowing stuff (trade deficit, 480 billion per year) and selling it, on credit, to the people who have no money to buy. Is that an economic boom. Most of the new jobs being created are in the homeland security arena, how is that helping the American consumer, it is actually an added overhead in the long run. Most other jobs are in defense related industries or areas being helped by the war on Iraq and the war on terrorism. Not real jobs , not great jobs that add value to anything or produce a thing.
All this at the cost of a two trillion dollar deficit racked up by Mr Bush through an ill advised, and countinuingly expensive "war". And let me put this in perspective, Mr Bush has doubled the Reagan deficit of a trillion dollars in half as much time. No wonder he is claiming that the economy is booming,( mostly for him and his buddies). In the long run , however, the working classes always have to suffer from such a mess. If there were to be a depression, the rich will still have their money, and if the deficits are paid for through inflation, the rich always make more money through higher interest rates , while the working people lose the buying power of their incomes.

Do you want to give Mr Bush another four years?
1. Mr Bush gave the rich their tax cuts to make up the income they will lose due to current interest rates staying low .

2. They say there is three trillion dollars in cash on the side lines whine the stock market has been treading water for three years, why the people with this money won't invest in the USA.

3. If compared with the price of gold or foreign currencies the stock market today is at six thousand actually, not the ten thousand as it says for the DOW .

THE ATTACK IN LAHORE, PAKISTAN

THE ATTACK IN LAHORE, PAKISTAN


Nothing funny about this one, but, isn't it odd that only a few days ago I had started writing the series, "Connecting the Dots", below.

http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2009/03/connecting-dots-ii.html

So let's continue, first many have assumed, even concluded, that the atttacks were the work of some Islamist faction, Al Qaeda, Taliban, Lashker e Taeba, the ususal suspects, one even mentioned the Tamil insurgents, that excludes the fact that Pakistan also has many political malitias, drug gangs, and just general purpose gangs of thugs and looters.

Muslim populations need to come to terms that these so called religious malitias are in fact no different than common criminals, in as much as they are power hungry, made of rapists and theives, under the guise of Islam.

WHAT RECOVERY? WHEN RECOVERY?

WHAT RECOVERY? WHEN RECOVERY?

So there, the auto sales are down, and the housing is still in a slump, stocks keep falling, around the world. The promises of the president and his cadre not withstanding, recovery is but a fleeting dream.

Are we to believe the economic predictions of the experts, to follow the yellow brick road to the house of oz, only to find that the wizard has nothing to give.

The bail out of AIG, CITI, GM, etal is not doing a thing for the public in general, though the Bernanke, Geithner duo of clowns keeps pleading to the other five hundred thirty five know nothings on the hill.

Or may be they all know, that the country has been bankrupted, the "hundreds of trillions" lost in the markets had never really existed, and a few trillion being offered to stem the loses will do nothing to stop the bleeding.

There is no new technology, new industry and a new need that will create real jobs, time to put away the foolish things, like ideology.

President Obama and others need to come out and tell the people the real truth. Capitalism has failed, just as socialism did. Money can not be created from thin air. There are jobs that the Americans are willing to do, the same ones that were called the jobs that the Americans will not do. No amount of self help books will change the future.

I have been patient for many years, like when I asked senator Shelby, personally, " when the US government runs up a deficit, who ends up with the money," I have yet to get an answer, after two years. Obama recovery plan, by design creates temporary jobs only, and it will cost eight hundred billion dollars, has anyone asked Bernanke or Giethner, what about the three trillion plus you have spent, who got the money and what are the results? Why is the economy still in the dumps after all that money has been given away, and to whom??????? ever wonder

BILL CLINTON'S BALANCING ACT

BILL CLINTON'S BALANCING ACT

In his testimony to the senate today, Ben Bernake finally uttered the words I have been saying all along, for years, that tax revenues under Clinton increased because of the stock market bubble, (day trading and stocks going up and up thus increasing the capital gains tax revenues), Clinton administration takes the credit for balancing the budget like they had anything to do with it.

LARRY KUDLOW FOR SENATE?

Larry Kudlow in the senate?

Why does America listen to the idiots. Where were the CNBC guys when the world of finance was fisrt built up on the clouds and then when it was crashing down. If these idiots were so smart then why was there no warning, I was warnig about the financial schemes and the crash in two thousand three, Larry only knows one sentence, " cut taxes" has any one ever shown what happens to the economy when tax cuts are not accopmanied with increase in deficit spending, since deficits hide the true effect of tax cuts which is reduced tax revenues.

It was just two months ago when Larry said that the PE ratios of the stocks were great and the stocks are cheap, a good buy! are you going to listen to this moron on economy?

Dodd is a moron all the same any way.

CONNECTING THE DOTS II

CONNECTING THE DOTS

Item, the drug cartel wars in Mexico

Item, the mutiny of border guards in BenglaDesh

Item, take over of Swat Valley in Pakistan by the fundamentalists

Item, coca production in Columbia, Bolivia, poppy production in Afghanistan

So what do all these have in common? everything, actually they are all the same one problem, though some may see one or another angle to the problems, many, however, fail to see the common threads. But first we need to remember that ALL humans are mostly the same, even the educated and the rich have the same basic human traits of the rest, the uneducated and the poor, And the second, if the first is true, which it is, what can happen over there can also happen here, we are not immune because we are white, black, educated or or richer or Americans, what is happening over there can also happen here. As I had mentioned in my radio interview, back in march 2005, the problem with Mexico is not that they don't have money, especially with all the oil revenues, it was that the rich were hoarding money and corrupting the politics and justice systems.

Previously I have also said that if you corrupt the system for your gain, then you, yourself, also suffer the consequences of a corrupt system. In poor countries it is easy to bribe someone, but when bribery becomes the norm then more and more monies are required to corrupt someone, unless, the people are so poor that they can still be bought off cheaply. Mexican rich and the middle class are no longer safe. Safe heavens for the rich become smaller as the poverty and the corruption rises.

Unless you have been living in a bubble, you know what is happening in these various countries I have used in my example above, and just in case you do live in a bubble, here is some information. In Mexico drug lords have a war going on , not just between themselves, but also against the police and the army, kidnappings, murders, torture, assassinations are becoming the norm and no one is safe. Columbia and Bolivia have insurgencies tied to the drug trade, they have the same problems with corruption. In Bengla Desh, the border guards had a mutiny and they killed or kidnapped one hundred forty of their own officers, over seventy corpses have been discovered, seventy are still missing. And in Pakistan the government relinquished the control of the Swat Valley to the radical Islamists. Sway Valley used to be a summer heaven for the rich, where the poor population was used as virtual slaves for the summer months by the rich vacationers. Well ok, not as virtual slaves , but the poor people of Swat were just very happy to serve the vacationing for what ever money they could earn.

Who is standing up for the poor? On an empty stomach all philosophies turn to self preservation, and people will do whatever they think will feed them and their kids and kin. Taliban and Al Qaeda find recruits among the poor, and so do the Mexican drug lords, poor peasants in Columbia and Afghanistan grow coca and poppies.

In justice, real or perceived will always bring a reaction. While everyone was celebrating the growth of "richism" I was warning about people who got left behind. In nineteen eighty six i warned my relatives in Pakistan about the unfairness of the system there, told them about the corruption and its consequences. I used the example, not of the Iranian revolution, but of the French and Russian revolutions where the have nots had risen against the haves. I got excuses, no surprise there.

I had voted for Reagan the first time, a sin I will never forget, but soon as he was elected, I turned against him, he did not balance the budget, and his trickle down theory wasn't worth a cup of hot piss.

For the last forty years mankind has had an obsession with getting rich, it is no longer enough to have a roof over your head, and food to eat, and a nice family, it has al been about making money, and if you were not making money, and tons of it you were a fool, a slacker. It did not matter at all how many people you had to use, abuse, swindle, con, fool or back stab, long as you were making money.

THE NEWEST CIGARETTE TAX HIKE

In the name of full disclosure, I am cigarette vendor. Having said that, Cigarette tax is about the most regressive tax that we have, as most smokers today are less well educated and poorer. Although it says here that the intentions of the tax hike have good intentions, they fail to mention there is already a hidden tax of six hundred billion plus on cigarettes that the state(politicians) have manged to steal and divert to their own pet causes, and the poor pay for this tax (settlement).
As the incomes are in decline and the unemployment rates are higher for the less well educated already, that from what I have observed, many people will pay for cigarettes and will have no money left for a treat or even food for their kids, so how are we helping the poor kids, by exposing them to more neglect, if not out right abuse.  yes, I have seen kids treated harshly by  many a frustrated parent that has no money left after paying for their smokes. 

What will be more fair is to increase the tax on alcohol ( beer, wine and liquors) by say thirty percent  to replace the tax loss, and snag you  some money from those who can afford it.
