Duck And Cover: The Lull Is Breaking, The Storm Is Nigh - David Stockman

"In short, what is happening now is that risk is coming out of hiding; the collateral chains are buckling; the financial time bombs are beginning to explode.

There is nothing especially new about this development—its the third occurrence this century. But there is possibly something different this time around the block.

This time the carnage could be much worse because the most recent tsunami of central bank credit was orders of magnitude larger and more virulent than during the run-up to the Lehman event or the dotcom implosion.

Miracles do happen. My neocon dad spent 2 hours watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube.

I have no idea why, but my Dad started watching Ron Paul videos on YouTube yesterday. I was in the living room a few feet away, and imagine my surprise when I heard Ron Paul's appearance on The View playing from Dad's computer speakers. He hates The View, and until yesterday, I was pretty sure he hated Ron Paul because Fox News told my Dad Ron Paul was anti-military (sigh). Just a couple of days ago he was lamenting the millions of GOP voters who stayed home rather than vote for Romney.

The family with 34 children - and counting (I wish there was Love section on DP)

Jeane and Paul Briggs have 34 children - 29 of whom were adopted from other countries including Mexico, Ghana and Ukraine. Now their family is about to get even bigger.

In 1985, Jeane Briggs was at church when she was shown a photograph of a two-year-old boy. He was living in an orphanage in Mexico, was blind and had been beaten so badly that he was in a body cast - his legs were broken and he had suffered brain damage.

The Breakthrough

The Breakthrough

Marching in the streets all day long,
Writing a brilliant, passionate song,
Fighting injustice, opposing what's wrong,
Wondering why we're not that strong,
Wondering why with all of our reading,
We're being led and not leading,
Working real hard, doing all we can,
We're still ruled by Them and The Man,
Still trying to do better every day,
Still lost along the way,
Still searching for something new,
Still striving for the breakthrough,
It will come when you pray for me and I pray for you,
It will come when you pray for me and I pray for you.

OK, so North Korea DIDN'T hack Sony... disgruntled ex employees?

What a twist that would be. Can't say as it'd surprise me but I would love to see all of our "goons" with egg on their collective faces...

The Problem With Police

I can't with full conscience blame the police totally for all the incidents that have recently taken place. From the killing of twelve year old Tamir Rice in Ohio, to the actions taken against protesters during Occupy Wall Street, the police are not the only ones to blame. I would even go further and say the police have very little blame placed upon them. The politicians are the ones to blame for one hundred percent of the events that have taken place these last few years. Sure, the police have some responsibility in a moral aspect to respect their fellow man and women by refusing to comply with the orders demanded by politicians even if that sacrifices their jobs. We the people also are to blame for demanding government do something about everything and not demanding them to do nothing about something.

Politicians are elected to govern within the restrictions set by the federal and state constitutions. For the last few decades or more, politicians have violated that restriction for political gain. They want the people to see that they are doing something. When something horrible happens, the politicians are right there to promise new laws and restrictions and the people allow this to happen.

The issue today with all these incidence involving police is a direct consequence of years of laws that are nonsense. From the war on drugs to the attempted soda ban, these are "laws" that create conflict. The politicians write the "laws" and they send the police to do their dirty work. Naturally, the ones who are seen as aggressors will hold the blame such as the police are now, and the politicians who caused the aggression will use the situation to their advantage when the people cry for them to do something, which is also happening now.

Can you create a ripple without a cause?

We've all seen a stone thrown into the water create ripples across the entire pond. And the ripples keep on going across the entire universe.

That is what that whole Beatles song was about, Across the Universe. Jai guru deva om (जय गुरुदेव ॐ), which roughly translates to: "Glory to the shining remover of darkness!"


http://youtu.be/PN9n1bAahg4

Jai guru deva om. Be that stone. Go out and remove some darkness in the world. Don't wait for it to happen. Go out and do it, even if it is just for one person. Go make a positive ripple in this world.
