A Simple Dime


dime found

A  Simple  Dime

I seem to have a propensity for finding `money’ on the street; 99 percent of occasions it being finding a simple dime, a ten-cent coin piece; the latest of which is illustrated herewith.

The frequency, not the matter of finding `money’ but, more specifically, that it be a DIME!

A simple, singular dime!

This experience, not a new phenomenon but, one that dates back a couple of decades; the earliest being in my early 40’s.

However, it has taken until now to fully gain a true appreciation for the significance to such propensity; that being, in the finest of Buddhist teachings:

`Fate to good fortune need not be measured by the gain of (material) wealth incurred but, the wisdom teaching derived from such fate of fortune’

That, or, I’m just enough `lucky’ to find a single, simple dime at a time, on several occasions!

Empathy: defined?


Image result for empathy

 

Recent developments of a family nature have exposed me to a foreign experience, until now: the depth of hostility expressed and anxiety imposed upon an ailing, dying Father by his only and seemingly heartless Son.

What has materialized from this experience is clarity, from my perspective, of the true meaning of Empathy.

Empathy: what the non-suffering need feel for the suffering.

In the broader scope of human experience: it is the sufferance of the suffering for the non-suffering to suffer to realize the true meaning of Empathy.

IMPORTANT: SAVE THE DAY


 
Encountering on YouTube, a video titled: IMPORTANT: Save the Day  wherein several A-list celebrities amongst a few commoners, profess the vital importance of registering and eventually voting come November 8, 2016.  As would be expected several took to commenting on the said video with a wide range of response from the rational to the downright stupid.
I posted (see at the end of the comment stream below) what may arguably be considered a rationally objective view of the current state of the electoral process, the limited and potentially negative results regardless of which candidate wins then, subsequent to this posting, I reviewed the comments that had preceded my own.
Having done so I couldn’t help but reflect (see at the end of the comment stream below) on the general verbal mire that ensued and not necessarily directed toward the video content but, against fellow commenters.
My point via this posting is the fact that my comments received neither `a like, dislike`, nor even a supporting or abusive comment. Whilst, as illustrated here (see below), are the comments that followed my own (timeline), with as you will see, several likes, dislikes, and comments either way.
So, I don’t know why this is but, a want to draw the distinction to whatever conclusion you may yourself draw.
Good Luck to all who live in the United States, I do not envy though do fear for your and the rest of the World’s future post-November 8, 2016.

NAYKD POET

After posting my comment I scanned the other `Comment'(s) and it is sad to say: they are a true reflection of the chaotic mental state of the United States. A combination of ignorant, ill-informed and downright nastiness that spawns the deeply divisive state of the American Union. Based on the examples given in this comment thread, regardless of the 2016 election outcome, there is much turmoil in store for America and, unfortunately, the rest of the World will not be immune to the consequences from it. This situation, predictably, will be evidence to one of the most tumultuous decades of the 21st Century; opening with the 9-11 experience and, potentially, closing with an outright revolutionary uprising. Only time will be truth to history.

NAYKD POET

An impressive call-to-arms(vote) however, the American public are being given the choice to either shoot themselves in the head versus jumping off the nearest bridge; unfortunately, WE, the rest of the WORLD’s population, will suffer the same consequence regardless of the choice they make! The Electoral College system of choosing the next President of the United States does not ensure that the popular choice of the People will be the President Elect. For this reason: NO ONE anywhere, after November 8, 2016, will be resolved in knowing the future will be one we can look forward to with a modicum of HOPE, unlike the 2008 electoral cycle.

Nature’s Song Fading


The Nature of Things - SongbirdSOS

Click on image to watch CBC’s Nature of Things

Nature’s earthly realm is dying with each passing day;
Humanity, collectively, chooses to look the other way;
Ignoring the warnings echoed by what science has to say;
Witnessed by the fading, beauty song nature loves to play.

Divergent minds’ relentless debate of causes and the effects
While extremes of rain-soaked floods to drought are there to detect
That something significant is happening, a sure winning bet;
Leading to an obvious outcome, future generations will be left to regret.

Dire news of destruction to upset each night’s dinner plate
Serves to detract from gaining remedy but likely to infuriate;
Fuelled by the incessant arguing the mindless like to instigate
While the world around consumes precious time remaining to mitigate.

Global rising temperatures melt ancient glaciers that once stood tall;
Countless species of wildlife are going extinct by this mindless stall
To take decisive action to avoid global civilization’s final fall;
What greater event than the permanent silence of nature’s song call?

Donald Trump : Whack Job?


Real estate developer Donald Trump (Reuters/Chris Keane)

The following is an article being circulated by email in recognition of Donald J. Trump’s campaign bid for the 2016 Republican Presidency nomination to which I provide a personal view at its conclusion:

“WHACK JOB” OR AMERICA’S SAVIOR?

WHO IS DONALD TRUMP? AND WHAT DOES HE REALLY STAND FOR?
A MUST READ & SHARE!

Donald Trump……..who he REALLY is….
The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something.

When interviewing those who work for him (or who have or have had business dealings with him) negative stories are, curiously, lacking. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is an unmistakable lack of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and compassionate leader and say he has far more integrity and high moral standards than many people think.

And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous people rarely talk of the charitable acts they bestow on others.

But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is, what is Donald Trump’s plan for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t do their own research, here, in no particular order, is an overview of many of Trumps positions and plans:

1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

2.) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.

3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point):

American interests come first. Always. No apologies.
Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
Only go to war to win.
Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
See the unseen. Prepare for threats before they materialize.
Respect and support our present and past warriors.

4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again, drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S., once again creating jobs here.

6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.

8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to:

Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%
From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%
From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%
$1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%

9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country. Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

11.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

12.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

13.) Trump opposes Common Core.

14.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

15.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

16.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states’ rights issue, not a federal issue.

17.) Trump supports the death penalty.

18.) Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense and innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around.

He tells a personal story to illustrate the point:

“When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs.

They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.”

On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.

He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.

Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans. Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.

Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due. Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer.

To this article I respond:

The reality of Donald Trump is not in the context of what GOOD he could do for the US domestically but, what HARM he could unleash internationally! He may be able to run a successful business using what techniques he has/continues to employ when negotiating business transactions but, do they transfer equitably to international peace negotiations, trade agreements, etc., etc..

In exploring Trump’s style and the resulting outcomes one need only look at his recent interaction with the Government of Scotland regarding his golf course resort in northern Scotland and its plan to install wind turbines off the coast adjacent the resort location: http://www.rt.com/uk/265258-trump-loses-court-battle/ (Google: Trump, windfarm, Scotland, to get the full history and outcome) – it is well covered.

What it exemplifies is how Trump goes about doing business; his negotiating style; and, his (in)sensitivity to the realities on the ground visa-vi local and social politics. You will find it does not differ much from the way he is currently presenting himself in his campaign for presidency: informal, off-the-cuff and though personable at times; sutley intimidating to his opponents leading to defensive and opposing rhetoric and unconstructive debate.

The positive aspects of Trump’s platform as detailed by the above-circulated email, promising to reconstruct the US industrial manufacturing base can not be denied but now, in this 21st century global economy, is it realistic the reformation demanded and portrayed by Trump’s stump speeches be attainable without raising the ire of trade and currency wars beyond what is currently experienced globally with China at the helm? And, most importantly, the risk such aggressive international posturing leading to isolationist policies by other governments bringing the global economy to a standstill and potentially a global economic depression.

The trouble for the American electorate is, more times than not, the inability or willingness to see beyond their collective patriotic `noses’; to see and weigh the full implication of their choices. They are an electorate that derives their decision making on the `philosophy of impulse’. Led to believe their own propaganda: `the US is greatest nation in the world’, they do not feel obliged to consider the weight of their choices on the rest of the global community. And, that such indifference typically out of pure ignorance of critical issues, can lead to real conflict.

It is not difficult after watching several of Trump’s stump speeches, considering the enthusiastic reaction of his attending supporters, he is a viable candidate but, a what cost to everyone directly and indirectly affected? The shame resides in the fact that the list of Republican contenders in the Primary line-up though the antithesis of Trump, are not much of an inspiration or character to be formidable opponents. And this, if for no other reason, we should all be quite frightened of the potential outcome!

What is Wrong With Humanity?


humanity balanceAt some point in this conversation the words, message, however you may want to term it, will undoubtedly begin to sound as a `rant’. That said, a concerted effort will be made to defer that potential conclusion at all cost to the privilege of your attention to this piece.

Humanity’s presence on this celestial body to which it has been given the unclarified privilege to inhabit for an indeterminate period of time to the present has as history will support, been mired in conflict. Aggression is and, seemingly always has been, at the forefront of this earthly occupation. A condition possibly attributable to the primordial, animalistic, component to living DNA: the innate struggle for all living entities to survive at all cost. But what this does not account for in the case of Humans is the `sentient’ aspect that purportedly differentiates it from other living entities it shares the planet.

So, `what is wrong with humanity?’

According to the Wikipedia’s reference on the topic of `Civilization

“The earliest emergence of [human] civilizations is generally associated with the final stages of the Neolithic Revolution, culminating in the relatively rapid process of state formation, a political development associated with the appearance of a governing elite.

If this holds to be accurate, approximately 9000 BCE was the start of humanity’s evolution to the present era commonly referred to in this the 21st century as the Information Age. A transition period of over 11000 years or, put another way: considering twenty years for each generational cycle – 550 generations.

It is certain many would argue that humanity has progressed substantially to behaving in a more civilized manner meaning, co-existing but, is this accurate?

The underpinning principle to any civilized culture is the `rule of law’. The formulation and establishment of rules and codes of conduct – behavior, a grouping of humans collectively and mutually agree to accept to guide the development and growth of their civilized grouping.

The evolution of this basic principal has undoubtedly met its share of resistance manifest in a variety of ways from the lone-gunman holding up a local bank to corrupt legislators and whole governments often culminating in regional, national and international conflicts.

Examination of the history that brings humanity to its present state now, in the formative years of this 21st century, it becomes evidently clear there is but one principle that truly dictates the course of humanity’s evolution: POWER of FORCE.

The phrase taken from the infamous Star Wars saga: `May the force be with you’ takes on a different connotation in the context of human socio-economic development and advancement where FORCE is derived from two fundamental elements: Money and Bullets. The presence of either or both, in any context of their application, is widely evidenced and proven to supersede the `rule of law’ that underpins a civilized organization.

Ironically, as the presence of humanity surpasses 7-billion and expected to approach 10-billion by mid-21st century, the power of influence increasingly, is residing in the hands of but a few powerful individuals and family dynasties. A situation where 0.7% (32 million) of the global population retain 41% of global wealth (US98.7tn).

pyramid

http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2013/oct/09/worlds-wealthy-where-russia-rich-list

This small super-elite group who, through secretive organizations such as the Bilderberg Group, hold high security, suggestively clandestine, conferences at Davos Switzerland to chart the course the remaining 99.93% of humanity will take over the coming decades.

What supports and is essential for this global wealth pyramid to exist and prosper is a myriad and matrix of individual pyramids of power that ultimately support the overall structure of power and influence. Be that by individuals, governmental institutions and/or, private organizations.

All equally share in the application-enforcement of the same two basic elements: money and if necessary, bullets, to acquire, establish and retain such force of influence.

Ultimately the true value of individual human life in the context of such power has to be deemed negligible. The death of countless millions of innocent lives over the last and into the current century is clear evidence to this harsh statement.

A current and living example of all that is being spoken of here resides in the financial dissolution of Greece, a member state to the Eurozone and the European Union.

Without going into the specific details of the Greek situation, suffice it to say the majority of the Greek population are being held captive to punitive, extreme austerity measures imposed by fellow Eurozone states namely Germany and France, for the documented excesses of the minority, Greek elite-wealth establishment.

Emanating from the global financial collapse of 2007-08, Greece amongst other Eurozone member states such as Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy, has been embroiled in negotiations to restructure payment of its massive national debt that presently exceeds 200% of Gross National Production (GDP). A level of debt that is unsustainable and never fully repayable when it exceeds the realistic potential of generating revenue to do so.

This dire situation of harsh austerity measures crippling the country since 2009 resulted in the 2015 election of new left-leaning State government party: Syriza on the platform to reverse regulations imposed by Eurozone member states. This mandate is further re-enforced by a 61% majority, national referendum in support of the stated platform even at the cost of leaving the Eurozone but staying within the European Union. This would constitute returning to the Drachma currency from the current Euro.

It is not evidently clear as to the true reasons for it but, the Syriza Party and the Greek Parliament have failed to institute the clear mandate given them by the majority of the Greek populace and have in fact, resigned to even harsher austerity measures than those imposed at the outset of this dire saga.

So again, it begs the question: `what is wrong with humanity?’

Clearly, the super-elite hold the power of money by which to acquire and control a power of the bullet to easily impose and control a power of force upon the majority into sheepish submission.

It would seem self-evident, with a ratio of 9.93:>1, the ability to change the present system to a more equalitarian structure would/should be relatively easy. So why has this not happened and what will it take to do so?

The simple answer is Fear. The fear of disrupting a civilized order as harsh as it may be; to delve into the chaotic and destructive nature of revolution. The types of revolution being played out in theatres of conflict as in the Middle East: Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.., the Israeli occupation of Palestinians of Gaza and West Bank. In these conflicts all that appears to being accomplished is death and displacement of thousands of innocent lives that once flourished in established civilized communities now abandoned and laying in ruin; possibly for decades.

In conclusion, if one can be drawn, the super-elite will maintain their austere hold of the majority of humanity unless the ways, means and courage, as yet unfathomable, manifest. Failing such a miracle, the road travelled for most occupants and their progeny to this celestial body, seems less than inviting contrary to the prophetic projections of wealth and goodness professed by contrived, propagandist, entertainment-centric and complicit global, mass media.

May time prove this wrong!

This Longest Night


Inspired by the movement that seems to be taking hold in the guise of Senator Bernie Sanders’ bid for the 45th President of the United States and, the events transpiring in Europe between Greece’s new left-wing government and, the rest of the Eurozone nations.  Through these effort, voice of the Common Peoples has chance to be heard:

Image result for Bernie SandersGreece-button-3

I walk alone, this country mile,
I harbour fear, behind a smile,
The pain I feel, has been for a while;
Each new step, has become a trial.

I look to those, who’ve come before,
For clue to what will help restore
The goodness of love that is our core;
To rid repressive apathy, for ever more.

A future of pride, full of promise
Is within our reach, vibrant and honest;
Revitalizing the weak, to be the strongest;
Railing against greed and the lawless

With this new hope, there comes a true light;
The downtrodden, for once, standing up to fight;
Fuelled by the energy to make matters right;
Exiting the darkness, from this longest night.

As a side-note: The next President-elect will be the 45th Presidency; for those into Numerology, this would reflect the Number – 9. `The last of the cardinal numbers, the 9 is the most worldly and sophisticated of all numbers. The 9 has some similarities with the 6. However, whereas the 6 as a symbol of motherly (or fatherly) love, giving its love and care to friends, family and the immediate community, the 9 offers it to the world at large; the 9, more than any other number, has global consciousness. Looking at the shape of the symbol is, as always, quite telling. The 9 is like the 6 upside down, a symbol of her offering sympathy and compassion to everyone; a reservoir of giving with a generous downward spout.(source:http://www.numerology.com/numerology-numbers/9)
