The Future is in the Hands of our Children

Dear hearts, I don't usually, in fact hardly ever bug my friends and other loved ones in this manner, but I am sick in my heart from hearing so many of our leaders and people with direct access the public mind call for for yet more bombs and bullets to solve the problem of bombs and bullets!  - chuck

2 million people are now displaced refugees of Syria. 1 million of them are children.

These children have lost the home they've known, often, their families, and the opportunity to grow and prosper as they struggle to grasp what has just happened to them.

Many organisations in neighbouring countries such as UNHCR, UNICEF, Save the Children, and the World Food Programme are working to provide them with essential shelter, food, and the chance to continue their education.  However, the money they need for this work is severely lacking.

I just signed the petition in support of a plan for Education without Borders - a plan that will help get the Syrian refugee children in Lebanon to resume their education within several weeks.

Will you sign it as well?  Every signature really does make a difference:


Children trapped in conflict zones are the most neglected and forgotten in the world.

Alongside 15-year old Syrian Refugee twin Sisters, Zahra and Amcaltoom Kattoo, there are now over one million Syrian children, any of whom are now being denied food, shelter and education.  Victims of the Syrian crisis, these children are denied a childhood that can never be relived.

We call on the international community to support the new plan to provide immediate education for the nearly 400,000 Syrian children now exiled in Lebanon.

We demand that word leaders at the United Nations General Assembly resolve at their meetings on September 23rd to put up the $402 million urgently needed to provide education for the Syrian refugees in Lebanon and make available the funds necessary to ensure the right to education without borders for every child in the world.

"Kors i Himlen" is a Danish expletive which literally means, "Cross in Heaven" - I don't know for sure the etymology, but assume it alludes to "when you see the sign of the Son of Man in the sky - that generation will see the Terrible Times

Seems I'm not the only nut who has noticed this
You can see other piX here,  here and here Or,
if you're not lazy :-)    google: cross in the sky

(a word of caution, my anti- virus, blocks the top two results (before*its*news and god*like*productions), so be careful - be sure your anti-virus is up to date - most of the others are either weird or yawn inducing).

Truth is a Sad Song (a sonnet of insomnia)

Sometimes, when lay awake at night and can't fall asleep, I compose - usually sonnets - in my mind. Sometimes I forget them, sometimes I write them down like this one from the night of May 14.

The Truth is a Sad Song 

Is this what life is really all about?
A tickle, a wiggle, a squirt and out it pops!

It cries, then strides...until, one day it shouts: 
"My God! Must it really suddenly stop 
like this?  It seems like I have hardly begun!

The things I feel I need to do, they drop 
to the floor and all my shattered work is done!

"All is vanity...", the Preacher* said, 
"vanity and a striving after wind!"

Don't ask what happens to you when you're dead! 
Ask where it all begins, then you'll know where it ends! 

"The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong...**"
The truth is that the truth is a sad song!

*  That is, the author(s) of the book of Ecclesiastes
**Ecclesiastes 9:11

I Thought It Was a Joke...

Broozing past my usual haunts, I saw a link to Colbert at  Juan Cole's great blog - what fugged my imagination was the sign that said "Honor Bound to Defend Freedom" - I thought, they're playing with my mind, I mean like, nobody could really write that after the death camps and "Arbeit Macht Frei", no of course not, but yes they did.

O, fug, Fortress of Arrogance, your days are numbered...

Fortress of Arrogance...
I see the nature of your game, yes, I do!

I see rows and rows of concrete bricks
     piled up in walls many meters thick.
I see miles and miles of chain-link fence,
     electronic and high-tech defence,  yes, I do!

Fortress of Arrogance...
I see the quality of your shame,  yes, I do!

I see hours on end of poison dreams
     radiating from glowing screans.
I see banks of illusion,  modified souls,
     garbage exchanged for the purest of gold, yes, I do!

Fortress of Arrogance...
I see your number and your name,  yes, I do!

I see excrement screamers,  oceans of fleas,
     plagues of black locusts and scabs on the knees.                    
I see beans in the out-house, jam in the jar
     and, yes, I see Madam1 in her fat car,  yes, I do!

Fortress of Arrogance...
I see you going down in flames,  yes, I do!

She thinks she's so holy, but that's just a lie,
     like all of her lovers, she too will soon die.
In the space of an hour2 on one wicked day
     all wasted away,  yes, it's true!

Speaking of carnage

After the latest carnage because any dingbat in his wrong mind can grab something like a semi-automatic Bushmaster - the expected chorus of religious blasphemy cranks up, it's not the access a dingbat has to the semi-automatic, it is:

  1. ban on school prayer
  2. smart phones
  3. gay marriage
  4. marijauna 
  5. not spanking 
  6. teenagers who use cuss words
  7. black people (or whatever...)
That is to say, for some reason, take your pick, God is pissed off - none of these things would happen if we got rid of numbers 1 through 7 and any others these blasphemers might think of in a God Dominionated America.

It seems to me, that when someone uses "God" as a codeword, half the people turn their brains off and the other half stick their fingers in their ears.  The reason for that is there are too many people with access to the mass media who do God-speak with their heads up their collective ass...

Again, again - it's the ease of access to things whose only use is to kill people - don't blame God!

In a Free Society

From an article by Glenn Greenwald:

In a free society, those who wield political power fear those over whom the power is wielded: specifically, they harbor a healthy fear of what will happen to them if they abuse that power. But the hallmark of tyranny is that the opposite dynamic prevails: the citizenry fears its government because citizens know that there are no actual, meaningful limits on how power can be exercised. A nation in which liberties are systematically abused - in which limitations on state power are ignored without consequence - is one which gives rise to a climate of fear.

Frankly, I'm a bit paranoid myself and often censure or disguise who or what I am writing about, for example, Bulimo Charisma.

You can read the rest of the article here - but I don't recommend that because Glenn is a raving homosexual and his words and opinions have little bearing on the reality of freedom in the time since Terrible Tuesday...

Anyways, the bottom line for me is that secrecy - in itself - leads to disruption of democracy. yeah, yeah, yeah, it may be a necessity for national security, but the dynamics, especially when there is so much money, power and influence involved, lead to a parody of democracy and the morphing from republic to empire and what rough beast that lies beyond seems not only inevitable but hyped on steroids...

terrible times are coming, any fool can see
yet everyone keeps running after more misery
for our selves and our children
it's hard to believe...

There Is NO Fiscal Cliff

There is no "Fiscal Cliff".    

It is a fiction, a conscious fiction, a big lie as Doctor Goebbels so nicely framed it.

Between Charisma and Hominy

Well folks, here we go, with lies thicker than flies on a old dead pig lying for week in the sun, the gig is about to be shoved up the flagpole.

Depending on how many votes that can be stolen by the Repugnants - actually, not so much stolen, but prevented from being cast, or, lacking that, kept out of the tally, either Bulimo Charisma we be reconfirmed as Prezdent and Supreme Hole of God's Own Country, aka The United State of Arrogance, which as we all know, has the best democracy money can buy - or, Hominy Grits

Indeed, is it not  more than passing strange, that, in a country where you can choose between 14 different kinds of toothpaste, we only get to choose between two flavors of Prezdent?

This old fart remembers when Idly Stevenson proudly proclaimed, you can't sell the Arrogant Prezdent like you sell toothpaste and lost, twice...

Actually, it's not like toothpaste, it's like the choice between plague and cholera - well no, if it's Hominy Grits who gets to strut his gut as Commander in Chief [sic], it will be more like the black death.  If it's Grits for the next morning prayer in the Right House, there will be war in 2013 - not there hasn't been war in 2012, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3...but I mean endless, ultimate war over resources and the right to rape the earth in the name of God and the bottom line.

When the nitty really gets gritty, it will be a big surprise when we find out who is actually holding aces up their figurative sleeves - for my money it won't be Eyeran.

Still, look on the bright side, Hominy is a nice guy, he loves his wife, believes in God and that these are the End Times.

A Question or two

1:   If you knew for certain that, in any case, you were going to hell, what changes, if any, would you make in the way you lived your life?

2:   If you knew for certain that the fix was in and were going to heaven, what changes, if any, would you make in the way you lived your life?

3: If you knew without a doubt that neither heaven nor hell exist, what changes, if any, would you make in the  way you lived your life?
If the answer is more or less, "none at all", then there is a distinct possibility that you just might be a real human being - now don't let that go to your head, I only said that there was a possibility - you still might be a silly little twit,

A Good Friday Question, 2012...

The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived!

Who was the greatest man who ever lived?

Jesus? Mohammed? Moses? Buddha?


The greatest man who ever lived has yet to be known, has yet to be born and, likely as not, may be a woman.

If that is so, what are we who, with acts of commission and ommision, destroy the future?
