France’s Hollande Proposes Creation of Euro-Zone Governmen


Image result for eu flag

Or a coup for Germany?

I came upon the following bloomberg.com article that struck a funny chord.

The article to paraphrase, suggests: recognizing the difficulty arising from the Greek crisis, would it not be better if there was essentially one-Europe: parliament, currency, budget, taxes, etc.. This would be at the cost of the sovereignty of the 19 member (current) country’s.  And given that Germany reigns supreme in the current Eurozone of EU membership, would it, Germany, manage to conclude the struggle seemingly inherent to the past. 

Overall I find it odd that France to be the spoke’s country for this potential unfolding of events. 

There is no doubt the Greek crisis as it continues to unfold, reflecting an increase in civil unrest and disobedience; Euro countries will feel the need, in order to regain stability; expedite the suggested process of a Euro-Zone Government with, potentially, Chancellor Merkel as ????.

UPDATE: It would seem the reasoning proposed here is shared in a Huffington Post article by Nathan Gardels, THEWORLDPOST
“This week the geopolitical balance changed decisively. As Margaret Thatcher long ago, a German Europe, not a Europeanized Germany, would one day be the dominant reality on the continent. The tough terms of the latest Greek bailout and the relegation of France to a junior partner in those negotiations confirm her prescience.”

France’s Hollande Proposes Creation of Euro-Zone Government

French President Francois Hollande said that the 19 countries using the euro need their own government complete with a budget and parliament to cooperate better and overcome the Greek crisis.

“Circumstances are leading us to accelerate,” Hollande said in an opinion piece published by the Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. “What threatens us is not too much Europe, but a lack of it.”

While the euro zone has a common currency, fiscal and economic policies remain mostly in the hands of each member state. European Central Bank President Mario Draghi made a plea this week for deeper cooperation between the euro members after political squabbles over Greece almost led to a rupture in the single currency.

Countries in favor of more integration should move ahead, forming an “avant-garde,” Hollande said.

“Europe has let its institutions weaken and the 28 European Union member countries are struggling to agree to move ahead,” Hollande said on Sunday in a text which was also a homage to his mentor Jacques Delors, a former European Commission President who proposed similar ideas.

Draghi called for the creation of a shared treasury within 10 years in a joint proposal with politicians including European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem last month.

Miracle To Change


sunrise

Given the tumultuous times we increasingly find our world in, it seems appropriate to give this long ago written poem another spin.  It speaks loudly to the want and hope that humanity recognize the trajectory of its present course that only a blind-fool would think it not toward inhuman sufferance; if not its outright demise:

Miracle To Change

As the world spins on its axis tilt
Twenty-four hours of blood to be spilt

Humanity’s participants long for the day
Brutality and evil will have gone away

If history speaks as loudly as it does
Bullets and famine will win to love

Turbulence and chaos reflected in the skies
Surprisingly some still naively ask `why?

Though beauty of flora and fauna still exist
As casket wreaths it spoils their bliss

Mankind towards destruction seems inclined
What miracle to change will it have to find?

Challenges To Distraction


GREED

Is uniformity to an abiding person inclined
If, always found, they colour between the lines?
Or, in this age of perceived subversion, we find;
The increase in surveillance, demands it be, critically defined.

Lexicon to this 21st Century, conspires to set the stage;
For the eclipse of the past, be it with a whimper or through rage;
The margins of tomorrow will go beyond the written page;
Ear-marked for destruction or, possibly, left living in a Cage!

Challenges to distraction, are losing to the bid;
Manufacture to its reasons: perception to forbid;
Rendering future minds naive, relentlessly morbid;
Pledging a society chaotic and, grievously sordid.

This query-story need not end on so dire a note;
There is gradual rise to reasonable minds espousing hope
But, there is the pervasive mental lethargy of the many, to cope;
For without so doing, it may become a downward slope!

Metallic Bird


metallic bird

Beautiful flight of metallic bird;
Beasts to their unsuspecting prey;
Thunderous loud a cry heard;
Death, destruction, waste laid.

Fierceness to belie swiftness of grace;
Oppressor to innocence, faces unseen;
Deliverance of fire, wrath of human place;
Marvel of creation in defiance of a dream.

Lost to time is history of true purpose;
Distortion of naive inventor’s gleam;
Beautiful flight of metallic bird curses;
What future, humanity, might have been.

Rent-boy: Essential Public Service


rentboy

CAUTION: COARSE LANGUAGE

Standing vacant – on a dark street corner
I watch as their cars slowly drift by
Hoping on hope – one will give me a try
Excited by not knowing – who’d they be
If it was for my sex, or maybe just for me

Twenty-four by age, ninety-two by trade
Prostitution is how my living is made
I suck cock for the night’s rent
But if it’s my ass he wants to fuck
Less then a hundred, he’s out-a luck

Competition is stiff, the johns can be cruel
A street-boy has to know there are no rules
I’ve been stabbed – I’ve almost died
Staying out-a trouble means being more then street-wise
The truth of it – you need to look deep into their eyes

A john’s story is written all over their face
You gotta read it before going into a dark place
Once blown – the guilt can change their tune
So money up-front before getting on your knees
Or, with their cum still warm in your mouth, its their fist you’ll see

It’s the godly and righteous who look down at people like me
Little do they know, more often, its their husband’s I see
The desperate who want their cock sucked or a boy’s tight ass
The way I see it, society owes me, more respect
Cause without my kind-a service, a lot-a marriages would be a wreck.

HOW CORRUPT CAN IT GET?


 

OFFICIAL LIE IN THE MAKING

To anyone with a concerted interest in international events that shape our daily lives, the revelations brought to public attention from the likes of Julien Assange, Edward Snowden have served to enlighten global citizens to the level of corruption, graft and incompetence of those whom have been elected to represent our interests.  Unfortunately, what has been disclosed most recently by Al Jazeera News only amplifies the seriousness of these revelations.

A journalistic investigation stemming from digital leak of cables originating from the South African intelligence organization gain the world an insight to the political conjuring and coercion of rival leaders within the Middle East and the seemingly purposeful effort by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to thwart the United States – Iran nuclear negotiations with sole effort; to incite an atmosphere of conflict and threat of war.

The Al Jazeera disclosure titled SPY CABLES, clearly shows how Netanyahu in his 2012 address to the United Nations mislead the world on the state of Iran’s nuclear program and stage of uranium enrichment. A position to date, though having been informed otherwise by his own intelligence agency MOSSAD, not to be either accurate nor true, he has not recanted.

What is becoming increasingly evident by the `illegal’ disclosures of all that is hidden by world leaders from `WE THE PEOPLE’ under the umbrella of `national security’ is directly responsible for the death of literally millions of innocent lives, displacement and hardship of countless millions more and, the expenditure of trillions of taxpayer funds. And for what?

These critical, timely exposures communicate leadership of the world in the hands of a few heads-of-state, the United Nations and like bodies, can no longer be taken at their word. The issue of credibility of any statement by ANY government official regardless of nationality, CAN NO LONGER BE TAKEN AS CREDIBLE OR TRUE without due-prudence by an arms-length body. A body presently by default, has fallen to government officials or employees of conscience to leak hidden information i.e., whistleblowers and, by investigative journalist and documentarians. Simply put: those whom nati\oanal political leaders make every effort to find and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. And, stemming from the revelations being brought to light, it is clear why!

The only remaining question: HOW CORRUPT CAN WE LET IT GET, before we find a way to take back our World?
