Joseps Kony will go down this year
The number one wanted on the list of the ICC for crimes against humanity
will be caught and hopefully turned over to the International Criminal Court
The US government is assisting on the ground
This is a key element in the global democratic revolution which is the agenda of this century
Accomplishing this will send yet another indelible message to those who feel no progress
is possible

The engine of progress is individuals acting in response to the universal values shared at the deepest level by all human beings everywhere

Joseph Kony - Mr Carney said: “I think this viral video that you mentioned is part of that response, raising awareness about the horific activities of the LRA, and consistent with the bipartisan legislation passed by our congress in 2010 the United States continues to pursue a comprehensive multi-faceted strategy to hel;p the governments and people of Central Africa in their efforts to end the threat posed by the LRA and reduce the human consequences of the LRA’s atrocities.”

Jesus was dead set against hoarding

Jesus was dead set against hoarding

He was for the circulation of everything 
And the sharing of everything
He even said that doing that is the key to decency and prosperity 
Even getting into heaven.

The answer is do not hoard circulate do not grouse be happy
Do not consume sustain do not be anxious
Tomorrow will come 
Forgive and be forgiven every day

Most bipartisan thing in recent years was the sorry repeal of Glass-Steagall



For the record the most bipartisan thing in recent years was 
the sorry repeal of Glass-Steagall on Bill Clinton's watch
Turning banks into casinos
and bankers into masters of avarice
The entire structure of my home town NYC changed
And you can still smell it
If Barack has a second term and Elizabeth Warren wins in Massachusets
I will favor her to succeed him in 2016



The way of Abba is place children first

The way of Abba is Place children first
The realm of Abba is for children made
We're judged when children know hunger and thirst
We're judged when we let Abba's passion fade

The wanderer will find a sacrament


The wanderer will find a sacrament in any sighting, hearing or parade.
The wanderer will not divide the truth, romantically conceiving unscaled heights,
Excoriating lows, bowing to highs,.one billion perspectives, one billion truths,
Sitting like bricks upon the passive mind; it takes some wandering to make them live.
Wherein lies greatness, in your life, in mine? 
Once set your anchor there and you are lost. 
Wander. Create. Make choices. Keep on going.
Your passing thanks the only clue you need.
Come joy! Come vision! Not some frozen past.
Come peace! Come light! Let all things be made new.
Thus let us learn to see and freely be, and thus become a world of wandering.


Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

Our minds can wander farther than our feet.

Our minds can wander farther than our feet.
To read the lives of those whose lives are o’er
Is to set feet upon another shore.
Sometimes the parallels are very clear,
And other times we’re drawn to stretch our sight.
We see the ebb and fall of lives long past
Their loves, their ills, short lives, long lives, now still.
We wander through these vaults of memory
Amazed at times at what our eyes can see.
Long-forgotten words are heard once more.
Names once lost in the mist rise up again.


Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

Nomads of the universe wander without moving and see in the dark


Some wander, some stay put, I move at will.
Sometimes to places anchored in the past.
Sometimes to seek out places to be known.
I wander but each place I am is home.
A wanderer may never move at all.

Descend into the stillness

Abba's Way: 70 The Stillest Hour:

Descend into the stillness where the power
Does not impinge, but rather creates room.
Yes, room to think of steps that you will take.
First one, then two, then one, then two again.
Nothing too fancy, you’re on guidance now.
Your stillest hour is in a ribbon wrapped,
A gift from Abba, please to recall that.

Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

Who is the still, small voice amid the storm?


Who is the still, small voice amid the storm?
Whence come the softest words that have such power,
That mountains move at one whispered command,
And centuries of ill turn round at will?
The stillest hour is now, let it enfold
The agonies, the dead ends and the blocks.
Immobile, you are set to move again.
Struck dumb by living, you will live some more.



Charles Sanders Peirce - Thinking in Threes

Let Abba’s guidance be your resting place.

Abba's Way: 70 The Stillest Hour:

Let Abba’s guidance be your resting place.
You are not dead, just silent and enclosed.
Now rise and feel a rising, subtle power.
And move on, lifted by the stillest hour.

President Should Be Clear As A Bell on Torture

Letter to President Obama urging statement against torture | Human Rights First: "In light of the debate following the death of Osama bin Laden, we urge you to make an unequivocal statement that torture is illegal, immoral, and un-American. The use of torture undermines our national security and intelligence gathering efforts. The United States must lead by our core principles and condemn torture"

The President would lose nothing by finding a way to make this statement. He has in the past made major human rights statements in the context of speeches and other utterances and they are highly significant. One could have understood his attitude to democratic revolution by listening to what he actually said.

To make a statement like the above regarding torture would be useful at a time when there is a good deal of undue elation bearing the McCain bomb Iran stamp running about.


The Senators feed at the trough



The Senators feed at the trough
The billionaires fill with their slop
The money serves to reelect them
Thuggery that's hard to top

Much the same but only better



Much the same but only better
I guess that's the formula
Old rung out no matter what
Register rings: Tra la la

My first impulse would be to share



My first impulse would be to share
The other way I wouldn't dare
To leave my good friends in the lurch
I might as well give up the church

What Is Aggregation and How Does It Serve

Though about half of what is published here is entirely original, the other half could be seen as aggregated. There is now some effort to create standards for aggregation. I assume one of them is to provide not merely a prominent indication of a source, but some indication that if you click on a link you will not suffer loss of any sort. Abiding by these rules seems to me reasonable. Aggregation acknowledges the value of other efforts and presents an occasion for salient addition and responses. It seems cool to do this with style and adherence to standards that are in themselves designed to advance the global conversation.

Hospitals Now Present A National Security Risk

Hospital Audit Finds Radioactive Materials Unsecured - NYTimes.com:

'via Blog this'

Nothing about nuclear seems safe. In addition to plants being a source of worry, now hospitals are deemed a security risk because of their carelessness in dealing with radioactive materials.

Santorum's Going More George Bush Every Day

Fortunes Turn, as Does Style, for Santorum - NYTimes.com:

'via Blog this'

The stripes are showing as the article above attests. Santorum won those stripes serving George Bush as a high profile operative in the Senate. He got creamed after two terms because Pennsylvanians were not enamored either with his arcane social views or with his service to the man who caused our country to teeter on the edge of ruination. If Abba is favoring the canny American people with a comedy called The Collapse of  Boehner-McConnell Presidential Zapping, showing up Santorum for exactly what and who he is - a Bush 3 Wannabe who will complete our national meltdown - this story is Scene One.

Goldman Methodology - Sic Transit Whistleblowers

Public Rebuke of Culture at Goldman Opens Debate - NYTimes.com: "Mr. Smith is making a considerable financial sacrifice in publicly criticizing Goldman. Most Wall Street employees sign nondisparagement and nondisclosure agreements before they join a firm. If Mr. Smith did, Goldman may take legal action and refuse to release stock options he has accumulated. Mr. Smith may also find it difficult to find work on Wall Street after such a public resignation."

Polls Yo-Yo and the Canny American People

Obama-mentum - NYTimes.com:

'via Blog this'

Polls have the capacity to yank people this way and that hourly. Mr. Obama's popularity is a case in point. Given the fact that the man is not merely hated by millions and that he is routinely taken to the woodshed by everyone else regardless of their politics, ambient popularity is a given. But the American people are a canny lot. They know that Mr. Obama is a better risk than anything the GOP is now offering. So does the rank and file in the GOP. Which is why we will have a brouhaha in Tampa. No Mitt coronation prior to that. Steady as we go should be the sanity mantra. Regardless of who the GOP puts forward, she or he will be committed to an agenda of doom. We will want to bring one person to vote Democratic for every vile dollar the Koch Brothers invest in doom..
