TECHNOLOGY..........

In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning. I think of it as the Atlantis passage, and I've quoted it a few times before. "As I have said, this isn't the first time your civilization has been at this brink," God tells Walsch. "I want to repeat this, because it is vital that you hear this. Once before on your planet, the technology you developed was far greater than your ability to use it responsibly. You are approaching the same point in human history again. It is vitally important that you understand this. Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely. Your society is on the verge of becoming a product of your technology rather than your technology being a product of your society. When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself."

"How Will the 99% Deal with the Psychopaths in the 1%" ~ Alternet

A lot of the world's misery can be traced to people who lack the wiring for empathy. What can we do to contain the damage they cause?





Did you know that roughly one person in a hundred is clinically a  psychopath?  These individuals are either born with an emotional deficiency that keeps them from feeling bad about hurting others, or they are traumatized early in life in a manner that causes them to become this way.

Denver Shooting Appears to be an Organized Operation ~ Steve Beckow


Denver Shooting Appears to be an Organized Operation

2012 JULY 26

"James Holmes"
“James Holmes”
UPDATED – July 27, 2012
I spoke with Sierra Neblina this morning, who said that MGM had offered $2 million towards the cost of patient medical services and recovery costs. MGM made the Batman movie at  which the Denver shooting took place. Two million dollars will not go far to cover those costs and is viewed as a token gesture to deflect criticism from the studio for a movie extolling violence.
The Denver hospital is rumored to have expressed a willingness to waive the costs of the medical operations.
We’re not calling it the “Aurora” shooting because of suspicions that staging the shooting at a suburb with that name is designed to burden the word “Aurora” or dawn with negative connotations.
The Batman movie apparently features a scene where a gunman opens fire on a crowd of spectators at a sporting event, which at the very least is felt to be incitement to violence. The prevailing feeling here is that the Batman movies, or “dark knight” series, are being used to habituate viewers to chaos and violence.
Stephen Cook sends along this photo from the Sydney Morning Herald which shows two “views” of the shooter. Stephen points out that the two photos show different people – different eye shapes and colour, eyebrows, ear shape, noses -  which suggests that James Holmes was not the shooter and that the shooter was a “Manchurian Candidate” substituted for the real James Holmes, whose fate is unknown. Sierra notes that it isn’t an easy matter to change an individual’s eyes in the ways these photos indicate.
Reports are that a second individual may have been involved in the massacre (see video).
Also it’s felt that the complexity of rigging Holmes’ apartment with explosives and the cost of the munitions involved would have been beyond Holmes’ means. All of this points to an organized cabal operation.
Stephen adds: July 27, 2012
There is also a story circulating via a couple of chat rooms that James Holmes’ father, Robert Holmes – who is the Senior Lead Scientist at Fair Isaac Corporation in San Diego, according to his Linked In profile – is about to testify before the US Senate inquiry into the Libor scandal. We cannot verify this post, so please read this as information only. Nevertheless the intrigue continues…

“Most important to note about James Holmes, however, this report says, is that his father, Robert Holmes, was said to have been scheduled to testify within the next few weeks before a US Senate panel on the largest bank fraud scandal in world history that is currently unfolding and threatens to destabilize and destroy the Western banking system. Robert Holmes, whose “blueblood” family links go back to the Mayflower, is known throughout the global banking community as being the creator of one of the most sophisticated computer algorithms ever developed and is credited with developing predictive models for financial services; credit and fraud risk models, first and third party application fraud models and internet/online banking fraud models.
Educated at the University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University, Robert Holmes is currently the senior lead scientist with the American credit score company FICO, which was formally known as Fair, Isaac and Company, and which every American citizen is beholden to should they need to borrow money.
Mind you I am not saying that there is any sort of conspiracy involved here, however it has to make you stop and wonder, “what are the chances that two of America’s most volatile issues — gun control and the ongoing banking and mortgage crisis and scandal — could be countenanced by a single family?”
The’ report” this poster is referring to is from a site called:http://mortgagemovies.blogspot.com/2012/07/kingcast-and-mortgage-movies-remain.html
If you go there, the video, which begins with another story, is rather ‘out there’. But it even says the information included in it cannot be verified.

Obama's Secret Plan To Lose The Election: A Rhetoric of Irony | The New Republic

President Obama is stumping in Scranton this afternoon, which is strange, because as everyone now knows, he has decided to abandon the white working class.

Requiem for a Failed Education Policy: The Long Slow Death of No Child Left Behind - The New Republic

"Eleven years ago, I moved to Washington, D.C. to work on education. The liberal think tank that hired me focused on state issues, so I had nothing to do with the project that was consuming D.C. wonks at the time: a once-a-decade reauthorization of the mammoth federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act that would become the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001....."CLICK TO READ MORE....

End the madness, Penn State, and give us Paterno's statue - NCAA Football - CBSSports.com

Give us the statue, Penn State. Take it down, and do it now.
What about this don't you understand? Seven months ago the school fired Joe Paterno for not doing enough -- barely doing anything, really -- during the previous decade to stop longtime assistant Jerry Sandusky from molesting kids. Eight days ago Penn State released its own commissioned report on the Sandusky scandal, a report that focused on blame for the cover-up and concluded it lay heavily with Joe Paterno.(read more...)

Pathos of the Plutocrat - NYTimes.com-Paul Krugman

“Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me.” So wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald — and he didn’t just mean that they have more money. What he meant instead, at least in part, was that many of the very rich expect a level of deference that the rest of us never experience and are deeply distressed when they don’t get the special treatment they consider their birthright; their wealth “makes them soft where we are hard.”(read more)

Random post from Huff Post today....

I read this outstanding post on the Huff Post today....fully appreciated it:

Things the Republican base has to like to vote for Mitt.
Corrupt mafia like figures that want to buy a war with Iran because they are more a citizen of Israel than the US: By corrupt I mean gambling kingpins who bribe with cash, women, use stand over tactics and who put wealth over nation, greed over good.
A Presidential candidate who is devoid of all notions of patriotism 
Politicians that block tax breaks and incentives for job importers and fight to keep an expand tax breaks and expanded incentives for job exporters leading to 12 million jobs going to China alone in the past decade and then complaining about Obama not doing anything about jobs.
Billionaires openly buying or attempting to buy the government and them supporting the eventual disenfranchisement of even themselves as government is finally bought and all opposition crushed, who think they’ll be fighting a pitch battle for freedom against the left while they give a very few people the whole country by supporting the sale of it wholesale and in collusion with vast amounts of foreign derived money.
Thank God they are a rapidly aging ethno-homogenous species in a nation undergoing a renaissance of ethno diversity and expansion adding the dimension of an outside world.
 The old White billionaires might own the media and therefore have control of the perceived message and own most of everything else but the internet is where we get to fight back, spread the truth, organize and plan to reintroduce democracy back into the wild freeing it from its captivity program that has seen nearly all of it locked away.
 With the only illusion of freedom being the freedom to shop and the freedom to be mind numbingly entertained and programmed by our TV screens.
Not forgetting the freedom to throw our money away at Sheldon’s house always wins casinos or Wall Street’s house always wins casinos.

Mitt’s real insult to the NAACP - Salon.com


I have to admit, I started out giving Mitt Romney some credit for agreeing to address the NAACP. I’m a sucker for the make-nice gesture in this age of political division and cruelty. Republican presidential candidates have been known to snub the group’s annual gathering: Bob Dole did in 1996, and while George W. Bush attended in 2000, when he was promising to be a compassionate conservative, he skipped it in 2004, when it was clear that he was not.
I knew Romney’s visit was mainly designed to make him appear reasonable to white swing voters who are a little worried about the GOP’s wingnuttery when it comes to our first black president. Still, I thought it was a mildly reassuring symbolic gesture that might serve to keep the chasm between African-Americans and the GOP from turning into a dangerous canyon.
I expected it would be awkward; .......
