THE LAND OF OZ,

 10/29/2011


THE LAND OF OZ,
@tombstone001: Hell is to "absolutely know" you are nothing, it is also the heaven.
from my cousin Masood Anwar
TRUE ?????????
10 Lesser known facts about Libya and Gaddafi :

1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.
... 2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.
... 3. Home considered a human right in Libya – Gaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Gaddafi’s father has died while him, his wife and his mother are still living in a tent.
4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 Dinar (US$ 50,000 ) by the government to buy their first apartment to help start up the family.
5. Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25% of Libyans were literate. Today the figure is 83%.
6. Should Libyans want to take up farming as a career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and Livestock to kick- start their farms – all for free.
7. If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya, the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free but they get US $2, 300/month accommodation and car allowance.
8. In Libya, if a Libyan buys a car, the government pays 50% of the price.
9. The price of petrol in Libya is $0. 14 per liter.
10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – now frozen globally.(...
I posted this list, "unedited" on  my facebook page to start a discussion, not name calling, just to talk about things as adults.  I am sure those who made comments are just as sure of their positions and ideas as being the right ones, as I assume Ghadaffi was, just as certain as he was that we KNOW. That is the human folly that we are always so damn sure of being right. 


Just to make sure, the money was not his money, it was the money of his people, he did not own the oil that brought the money, no one, no leader, president king or dictator OWNS the country's wealth, so on that account, he was not the only one wrong, ( though I could be in my assumption). 


How may  people, "leaders" are led astray by their power, did Bush and Cheney not assume that it was in their power to legalize torture? Is the power drunk not what we were warned about? How then we  ever trust anyone who wields power over us? ANY ONE!

It is not just for the history books, it happens today, in our nations and even in our own homes, the one in power abuses those he is put in charge of, those of us from the East, so used to having "servants" in our homes, are we really just? Are we even fair? Have we not talked about some people being happy and content even while the spread feces around the yard? Honestly? how much value do we think their lives are worth, we don't have to be rapist or torturers to cross that fine line between "human" and "evil".

Personally, I am always suspicious of people  in power and all their great intentions.A study of recent history will show they all failed and they all failed their people, there are no great/obvious exceptions to the rule. It is terrible already when the power is in the hands of a dictator, it is even worse in a democracy these days because we elect leaders not on the basis of what will be best for our people and the country, but as to what we will get out of the deal for ourselves personally.

No amount of money can equal freedom of choice, but given no freedom,  you can oppress people for only so long,  and even with unlimited freedom, like in the USA for example, people do need money to survive,  so there is no easy equation.

It is also known, to the people in power that people can be pushed down and kept down and wanting for a very long time, the Romans knew it, the Normans knew it and the leaders of every third world country know.
Look around, at the slums of Bombay, of Karachi and Lahore, the Barrios of  LosAngles, of Juarez, of  Mexico City, Santiago and Rio de Janeiro, millions, even tens of millions living in scum, ignored  and still living,  oppressed yet uncomplaining, compliant in their misery, while their wealth, the wealth of their nations is stolen and usurped by the rich and powerful. What happened to the oil money of Mexico? Where is all the wealth that was remitted to Pakistan by those working overseas? Why the American bankers and industrialist do not want to pay welfare and unemployment benefits to the poor and working class after they have exported all the jobs overseas and refuse to pay a living wage to the working stiffs.

Strange here, that those who accuse Gaddafi of atrocities and also those who may  defend him are both willing to overlook the same from their own  preferred regimes. If we claim that Gaddafi was a megalomaniac, or just out right crazy, then who else would be on  that list, or rather would not be on that list  to keep it short? Who among the leaders today is not a liar and a thief? Can you name any?

And what about the role of the money, who has not tried to buy obedience and  conformity with the public funds real and imaginary. IN the USA, the republicans have bought the  loyalty of those who do not understand yet how they have been ripped of, and the democrats have been know to promise freebies to all.

Then there is the question of the other oil money,  the one used to buy arms and pay of prostitutes, buying properties and industries in the West, while spreading ignorance and illiteracy in teh Islamic countries, spewing hatred and discontent among the hungry and the hopeless.



Only from the "heavens" can you  get "real hell".

Not related though, I just posted this at the "White House wall" on Facebook.

There is a big kid at school, he goes thru the lockers of other kids taking what he wants, he beats up on little kids, takes their lunch money, also also eats up the kids lunch, he tears up kids books, kicks the wheels of their bikes, and threatens them with beatings if they do not bow to his wishes, he tells kids to loan him money knowing full well that he has no intention of paying it back as received. He threatens teachers, and the principles, even the friends. Please write here what you will tell this kid.

I like to have fun with people, really,

Basically there are no good governments, everyone everywhere is greedy and trying to get as much as they can for themselves and leave nothing for others, especially if the other means ill educated, poor. Most of us only do any thing good, if we do at all, is to may be feel good about ourselves only.
Surely Gaddafi thied to buy the goodwill of his people by spending money. Republicans and Democrats here have been spending money they don't have to keep the people appeased while they loot the riches, none of it is any different that the governments in the third world countries stealing the peoples money out right, be it Zimbabwe or Pakistan or the ex Soviet states, including Russia. I believe the Communists are adopting Capitalism only because it legitimizes the stealing from the countries riches. I am sure everyone reading this has a favorite "government", or their favorite type of a government, but all governments are made up of thieves at all levels, and you will certainly be wrong no matter who you  pick.

THE BOTTOM LINE, part four

THE BOTTOM LINE, part four

It is not that I am a pessimist, and to an extent I am, but I have my reasons. Are you popping the  cork of the bubbly because the Dow was up 347 today, then put it back, cork it.

How can there be a recovery coming? And if it is will it apply to you also? will you be out of the hole tomorrow? Have a new job or a higher paying job? Will your children be able to move out finally? Surely you jest!

The jobs are not coming back, and the government keeps lying, education system is designed to fail us, as is the banking system, as was the housing bubble, the war on drugs,  left and right, conservative and liberals keep fighting as if they have all the answers, or even any answers at all, the they don't. The ship of nation is sinking, the fight right now is not as to who gets to be the next president as it is about who gets to read the eulogy, who gets to sign the death certificate.

First thing to remember now is this, even though the government is lying and they can make up numbers as good as the Soviets did about their economy, the US government is not in control of the economy, sadly now neither is the Federal reserve bank, we are at the mercy of the banks, the really big banks and the so called financial institutions, we are at the mercy of the "investors" who do not invest are mere gamblers, we are at the mercy of those who have loaned us money, private and foreign countries.WE ARE AT THE MERCY OF THE SPECULATORS. Remember that song, "Dirty Laundry"? These speculators are betting on the head dying, and the body too. Credit Default Swaps" were also about the housing market dying.

I am for a lot of government spending, but now a days the whole economy is based on government spending alone,  while the TEA party complains about the government giveaways to the poor and needy and elderly, I have shown time and time again how these payments actually enrich the wealthy while still leaving the needy and elderly destitute, this is counter productive , more so when the tax rates are so low that who ever ends up with the money gets to keep all of it.

THE BOTTOM LINE, part three
no gimmicks, bulldoze the fancy large (empty and foreclosed) homes and build smaller and affordable homes that people can buy, and pay for, that will stimulate the housing markets, the only way. let the banks eat cake this time.
STARVING OF MASSES (STARVATION) IS NOT FOOD INSECURITY, IT IS WAR, IT IS CIVIL WAR, IT IS SOCIAL UPHEAVAL, IT IS PROFITEERING FROM MISERY, IT IS SELLING ARMS TO THUGS AND GANGS, IT IS SPECULATING IN THE GRAIN MARKETS, IT IS ETHANOL FOR CARS, IT IS BLACK MAILING NATIONS, IT IS BLACK MARKETING OF FOOD ITEMS, IT IS EXCRUCIATING PAIN, IT IS LOSING YOUR SIGHT, IT IS LOSING YOUR MUSCLES, ANYTHING BUT FOOD INSECURITY.
We also can not handle dysfunctional world, not everything can be for profit only. Capitalism without morals is dictatorship of the worst kind.

THE BOTTOM LINE, part two

You can never replace the truth that IS, with the truth that you want to be,
unless you are a politician.
 I has started to say, hey, who cares. Ghaddafi is dead, and once again America won.  I am funny man, I went to the White House wall on face book and posted this video, 



A compliment to my Commander in chief, why not? When this all got started back in Tunisia I had said,
"what will happen if the people became unafraid to die?" and the Libyans became unafraid to die, Syrians too, who will be next.Should all the tyrants in the Middle East be scared? Shouldn't all the tyrants everywhere?

SCARY THOUGHTS.

Who are the tyrants that must/should be scared? How about China? What will we do if the Chinese decided to have a little bitty revolution? Or if the Indians got tired of their poverty and their misery, there is only about eight or nine hundred million there living on the edge. Mexico? They are as corrupt as can be are they not?

While we celebrate lifting of millions form the scourge of poverty we can not ignore the fact that hundreds of millions are being left behind and worse the gap between the have and the have nots is ever increasing.  Like I said in "A New World Order, 2003" we have, in sheer numbers, more poor, more sick and more miserable now than at any other time in history. A sad fact as the world approaches the seven billion mark.

THE BOTTOM LINE

10/19/2011

THE BOTTOM LINE


If you want to deny reality and avoid the truth,  either quote a "god" or an economist.

I have said this before, we are in big trouble with no way out. We are not really looking for solutions anymore, we are biding time till the inevitable. Our problems are of our own creation, two hundred  plus years of the scientific advances has made man knowledgeable, given us a better and longer life. and made us too proud and cocky for our own good.

Some how or another, the scriptures tell us that we were created by the same power that created animals, and the science tells us that we are evolved form the animals, either way we are still pretty close to the animals, modern life only has taken away much of what we learned during our evolution. We have actually digressed.

Of course we are living longer and are healthier,  we not only occupy Wall Street, we also occupy many other countries, we not only help the poor countries, we also take their natural resources, corrupt their leaders and then leave them destitute, we not only build roads and bridges, we buy their politicians and war lords as long as they are willing to deal with us to the detriment of their own peoples, and if the want to kill their own we are happy to supply them weapons for the job, people have sold their own in to slavery through the ages.

EVENT HORIZON! part SEVEN


Let us all understand this much, no matter how much money you have, created by the government the Fed and the banks, it is still a "limited" amount of money, and if some are taking more then the others must have less. Do the poor deserve some? How they will get it if the pay for the poor keeps decreasing? That is what the ones in control of making the laws must decide. WHAT MUST THE STANDARD OF LIVING FOR THE POOR, THE RETIRED, THE OUT OF WORK MUST BE?
 You know that the bubbles were created by the false assumption of "unlimited money", if there is unlimited money then the bubble would not have burst, thanks for your comment. It is a zero sum game or there would not be any poverty hunger or need. Also, economics 101 teaches us that anything that is available  in unlimited quantity has zero value, then unlimited amount of money also has no value,

There are idiots being passed around for economists, remember, we are in this mess because of the experts, remember Dow 30,000 by 2010? Thanks for naming two black idiots though still does not prove your point of unlimited money. The rich people also cause inflation bidding up prices where the prices can not be sustained, poor people can not cause inflation. At margins the dollar has no value, you do not get extra value for paying a 400 hundred dollar dinner, you are paying for intangibles (nothing).

I copied and posted here most a "conversation" I had on the CNNmoney  facebook page, after a few comments the gentleman stopped writing back, may be it does not prove at all that I know more than he, but I my points, it is interesting to note how many of us have an opinion in the money matters, regardless of how little understanding we have of the subject matter.

Like I said about the OWS protesters using cell phones and bankcards and eating  at MCDonalds, we have compartmentalized our knowledge. Sadly same can be said of the TEA party crowd, survey after survey has shown the lack of understanding,  if not out right real knowledge, on part the general public in the USA. Not only the Constitution is misquoted, we even misquote and misinterpret the Bible also.


If a commodity is in limited quantity (money in this case) and  if a few take more the others must do with less. It is wrong to compare this to the Arab spring where the main reason was "freedom". In the "advanced nations"the promise of ever increasing prosperity has gone away, and not just for the reason of banking crisis, in a flat world, all must have the same standard of living also. This a new revelation to the masses of those protesting. While the going was good no one cared, now the reality strikes that the bowl has been taken away.

WHEN IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE

10/14/2011

WHEN IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE

So, how impressive is the OWS movement, are you  taken aback or taken in? Is it serving the purpose?  Is anything being accomplished or just a great waste of time and energy ? It would seem that a lot of liberals have lot of high hopes for the movement, but if the recent history is any indication, the movement is bound to die out  in short order without causing any change.

Please don't be upset with me, I just present my world view, it may or may not follow your dream line,  but this is how see things.Law of averages says that the OWS movement will fail or just fizzle out soon.We must note here a few things, OWS has been compared to the Arab spring, IT IS NOT, it is nothing like the Arab spring where a couple of oppressive regimes were over thrown by the people who dared to face the guns and the military might of their dictators, hundreds had died and the international pressure on the dictators finally pushed them out of power, we have no dictators to over throw , it is all economics not political  and no one is facing up to the military here,  it make a good sound bite though, but! no.

On the other hand though,  when you see whatever happened to the protests in France, in Britain and in now in Greece, the out look is not promising, all those protests failed without changing anything, the bankers and the financiers won. If you notice, no one is paying attention to the OWS protesters, a few cops to keep everyone in oreder other wise to ignore them and keep them in place. Business of banking and Wall Street still goes on , smoothly. No one is impressed or running scared.

The "movement" has also been compared to the TEA party,  it is not, nothing like it at all. The TEA party actually adopted the far right agenda and had a ready leadership and people in power structure ready to sign on and take over the leadership, nothing like it here in the OWS , leaders and the followers of the TEA party had money and organization, OWS lacks both so far, until some rich guy steps in, Soros and Buffet are not going to  do it.

I wrote about the dichotomies of life today an year ago,  and you can watch it first hand in these demonstrations, does any one even notice?  We have people young and old, carrying there cell phones and stuff made by the slave labor they like to bitch about, buying McDonald's etc food brought to them by the big corporations that abuse labor and animals, and paying for it with their bankcards issued by the Wall Street banks they are protesting against. I have always said, " before you lift your foot you should know where you want it to come down at, or where will it come down."

Before you start a revolution you should know how it will end and what you will do with it when it ends. I do not believe that either the TEA party or the OWS have any clue.Time after time, I have explained how there is no money, it never was, and how there are no jobs, there will not be, no matter who you  elect, whom you  follow or what your political leanings, you are on your own.

THIS IS NOT YET ALL OF THE STORY,  LET ME KNOW WHAT I AM NOT NOTICING

THE FIX IS IN?

10/11/2011


THE FIX  IS IN?

There are headlines today that the FBI or somebody has nailed another Muslim terror plot, this time an Iranian with ties to the Al- Qads brigade of the Persian forces is implicated, the story is amazing, really it is fantastic. If you are not given to deeper thinking and swallow every hook line and sinker, here is a fish story for the ages,  at least in as much as it smells fishy.

We must keep our eyes open as well as our minds too. I know and you have heard that the Iranian regime is our mortal enemies,  they are out to get us, they want to erase Israel from the face of the earth, they are developing nuclear weapons and will attack as really soon.

Like I said, keep an open mind, our real problem is not Iran and its nuclear weapons, it is not their threats of erasing Israel off the face of the planet, Our real problems with Iran are, soon as we leave Iraq they will own it, they are a threat to the Saudi monarchy,  they are causing problems in Bahrain, are friends of the Syrians, and once again, as always we been fucking the wrong horse ( I mean been betting on the wrong horse, sorry).

"A naturalized U.S. citizen holding Iranian and U.S. passports and a member of Iran's Revolutionary Guard face conspiracy charges connected with the plot.
"In addition to holding these individual conspirators accountable for their alleged role in this plot, the United States is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions," Holder said." CNN


Let's be fair, to me, I have not defended any terrorist plots on here, not the shoe bomber, not the New York Times square guy, not the drone guy, I did say that we might have put Major Nidal Hasan in a position where he may have been placed under undue pressure. I spoke out against the killing of an American without trial and due process. I am not writhing this, in any way, to justify any one's plot to kill any one in this country.


It is hard to believe that the Iranian government will actually put some one on line, with such direct relations/ connections to the Iranian government to be instantly implicated and thus be a target of the wrath of the US. As such if the guy was up to anything at all he would be doing it on his own. What does Iran gain from this anyway? A war? That the US has been planning and threatening of for ten years or more, who does not know that Iran is a constant thorn in the side of the US, Israel and our buddies in the desert, the Saudis. Would any one in the Iranian government be so stupid? I bet if this guy did say and do what he is accused of he acted on his own, he got led in to believing that this could be pulled off, and he had the money of his own to go along with it.

The world does not lack angry Muslims, I am sure this guy could have been one, did I not say before the Iraqi invasion that there are one point two billion people in this world that call them self Muslims, if you piss off just one tenth of one percent, you have one point two million people out trying to get you and you don't know who they are and what they may be capable of.

It does make sense though, that the US has been looking for an excuse to look strong in the middle east, with both the Iraqi and the Afghan misadventures in the pits, and others taking advantage of the opportunities while we are looking at scraps at best, everything working opposite of what was hoped, Iran provides a great target for a newer and bolder initiative.

Was it not just two days ago, Romney was talking about expanding the military and increasing the military budgets, well, this gives him or anyone else a chance to  go to war once more, god bless.

If you think I am crazy, here is a follow up form the CNN, a day late though

EVENT HORIZON! part six

What to make of my friends occupying Wall Street?  Those who really believe that they were the innocent taken to slaughter by the big banks and the hedge fund managers. Those who in their innocence still believe that the government, that is the president and the senate and the congress can really make things right.

As always, I look at the other side of the coin, how is it that the other half the country believes that the president and the congress and the senate are the problem, and if they all get out of the way of the Wall Street and the banks everything will be all right.

It is because both sides are misled and confused, both sides are being lied to by the misleaders of their own choosing. The hucksters are out in force, from the White house and the media, the congress and the presidential wannabe" everyone is lying constantly, Timothy Geithner and Bernanke,  Cantor and Boehner, president and local business people every one is lying hoping, they can  make some more money while country is "not dead yet".

In a real world,  who would go begging a government for money it does not have, is it not quite selfish that you  want your toys, your education, your unemployment benefits knowing the country is broke,  has been broke for a while, their is no money in the treasury. What happened, well we spent that money , borowed money to buy toys, for our populations, our kids, we bought big houses and air conditioners, we sent away jobs and created a lazy and selfish nation, generations of fools with no concept of work and education and ethics, ( haha, ethics, it's joke right).We have welfare queens, unemployed gamers, people living off grandma's social security checks, people with no jobs, education or skills breeding endlessly, hoping, no, knowing,  some one else will have to pay for it all.

you may want to look at this too "worshiping failure"

There is that theory called the Butterfly Effect ,"It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world - Chaos Theory". Bottom line being the the things are inter- related, inter-connected, thus to understand somethings in life, you must understand many other things also , in other words"

LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE".

This thing I write at the end of each of my posts. What brought it to my mind was a post from "worldmeets US" a page I like on the facebook to  look at the opinions of the other peoples around the world, the author is happy about how things have gotten better over the last two hundred years, and who can argue with that, not me, trust me, I do love my life and what I have and how i benefit from all the new great things, cars, air conditioning, air travel and especially running water and light on  at the flick of a switch.longer and healthier life spans and freedoms people never though about.

Did we get here without costs? Not to pee in someone's Cheerios, there have been immense costs too, some of them deffered but most just ignored and pushed aside for later, I for one have been  pointing out these problems and asking for some action or at least some recognition of theses for while.

We do not live in a vacuum,  some people have paid for our progress dearly, even with their own lives, and we should, we must recognize these  as we continue on our path to "progress and prosperity". It is only fair that if someone is paying the price for our  advancement, we should try to allay or at least minimize these costs.

It is strange, I look for an informed and intelligent discussion of the  problems facing the country and humanity, and all I seem to garner is responses from robots, from the left and the right, each hung up on their own core believes, and like all religious totally untouched by reality.

Case in point, I start with a comment on the White House wall, there too the site is infested with idiots, till it seems like the government must be paying some people off to keep the discussion at a  pre-stupid level. Such as this one, "Should the government offer a person with a terminal illness to receive a lump sum  payment of a hundred thousand dollars (or their family if the person be incapacitated) in lieu of further treatment?" Understand that this may save the social security and medicare a lot of money actually. How do my conservative friends feel?
