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!"

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...

Jim Grant: "The Fed Has A 3rd Mandate... The Administration Of American Equity Prices"

Having recently given us a two paragraph synopsis of all that is wrong with our financial market faith in fed officialdom, Jim Grant unleashes his critical wit and insight on CNBC to explain the Fed's new remit, as Bill Dudley recently explained, "the administration of American equity prices." The Fed will find it difficult to raise rates - both technically (for reasons we have explained in detail previously) and "they will find many blocks in the way having to do with financial markets' reaction." Simply put, the Fed wants to raise rates but mostly it wants peace and quiet, which it does not have: "The Fed is America's central bank but it is the steward of the world's currency," and as Grant concludes, "it is raining currencies around the world... and the Fed must be cognizant of that."

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.

Ben Carson Chooses Sides: Israel Wins His Allegiance

He has proven that he is among the people who wish to be president at any cost.

"He showed sympathy for Israel's much-maligned settlement movement and questioned the desire among Palestinians for peace."

What an absurd thing to say. There is a lovely video posted here this morning, "The Quiet Revolution" which points out the truth: At our core, most of us want the same thing and peace is very near the top of our lists. To pretend Palestinians do not want peace is to deny their basic humanity. To pretend Israel is not an aggressor is to ignore the boundaries defined in the original treaty that created Israel.

The Tucker takeaway talks about the relationship between legislation and violence:

Paul Craig Roberts – Russia To Unleash Ultimate Black Swan Against The West

All Russia would have to do Is buy every ounce of silver available. 1 billion ounces of silver is what is available in the world. 1 billion times 16 is 16 billion dollars. Chump change to a government. Russia could swap Gold for silver easily. I think the Russians know the Achilles heel of the western banking system. Now this. http://www.stevequayle.com/index.php?s=33&d=1253

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.

Vipassana Meditation 10 Day Retreat

https://www.dhamma.org/

The ten day course is free, then donations are requested to keep the course going. I began looking into this because it is what Kong-Pop U-Yen practices, and he sees the Universe in a way that makes beautiful sense. He does his best to explain to idiots like me, but he also claims that his practice of Vipassana is why he perceives so clearly. I want to get me some.

OK, I can afford it, I can even get someone to cover the farm for 10 days to go, so what next...?

GMO: What We Were Promised, What We Got

"There is no mistaking the data – the large increase in glyphosate use in the US is mostly due to the increase in glyphosate-resistant GE crops – and this has led to more disease.
