The Tower of Babel is definitely running on all cylinders

The Tower of Babel is definitely running on all cylinders. Of course we forget that these things come down to the final minute when the President notes the monumental solution that wiser heads have achieved. But people have to fill in the time with something.

Where Does The World Divide and Which Side Are We On?

Morning Observations 16 July 2011 – New Cities, Carmageddon, Charities, Penitence, Money, Captcha, Wall Street – Associated Content from Yahoo! – associatedcontent.com.

That’s the question that dogs me after putting up this post. I have always been a partisan of community and of new cities. Fifty years worth of energy has been expended writing about the dangers of continued allegiance to oil and the car. Speaking of which traffic jams are now news with the length of a jam the headline. China had one exceeding 60 miles. LA wonders if it can beat China.

Charity raises what can be a most ugly head. We have the most shabby information when it comes to understanding charity and how it relates to capitalism and how the two create a world in which the result is benign genocide. That is my thesis BTW. It wants some proving I will admit. The surface remains unscratched.

I cannot for the life of me understand how I could have written about Obama for years and never had one personal encounter with the Obama folk. That is a recurrent theme because it asks the question what side am I on. I am one of the privileged. I live in the metropole of metropoles. I have freedom of speech. I should be grateful. I should be thankful. And I should be under no illusions about which side I am on.

But I do not feel on the side that I came from. Nor do I have the gall to pose as if I do not come from that side. So I do the only thing I can do. Put words out that advocate as I believe that the goal of existence is to realize the universality that is in us all. Ultimately we are on no side. We are one.

When we fail Abba succeeds. I wonder if Abba will smile if and when we consign the entire world to economic disaster. It will not be pretty and it will not bring out the best in us. It would be vastly better to limp forward without a crisis of such proportions.

The hypocritical GOP does not really care about anything but beating Obama

On one level the GOP is not hypoctitical at all. If you concede that they are viscerally opposed to the President and want him out, everything else becomes clear. What is hypocritical is pretending that this is not a motive that trumps everything else in their little book of claims. They do not care about whether we go down the tube globally. They do not care about national security save as a political point to regain power. They do not care about debt though they use this as their excuse for their Obama hatred. And so forth. What is delicious is that this is obvious. And it is over reach. And it will defeat them.

More and even more below:

Obama Wins Either Way, Electronic War, High Speed Grid, DSK Culpable – Associated Content from Yahoo! – associatedcontent.com: “The hypocritical GOP does not really care about anything but beating Obama. This is unpatriotic and suicidal for the Republicans. By proposing a meda-deal and being willing to do it, Obama has made any small deal look merely like a necessity because of the intransigent GOP. The intransigent GOP is therefore the loser.”

Window on Obama 2008 – Brian Schweitzer, New Yorker, John McCain

From a growing archive filed as Obama Diary.

Could Brian Schweitzer Have Been Obama’s VP? Flashback to 2008 – Associated Content from Yahoo! – associatedcontent.com: “Does Barack Obama have a Western Strategy for winning the 2008 Presidential election? Yes he sees the West as winnable and he is campaigning there in earnest. But I’m talking about something larger.”

New Yorker Cover Savages Obama July 2008 – Associated Content from Yahoo! – associatedcontent.com: “The notion that it is satire to portray the Obamas this way is disingenuous and ultimately false.”

+

McCain was Doomed Well Before He was Nominated in 2008 – Associated Content from Yahoo! – associatedcontent.com: “McCain may not end up being nominated. I am not saying the odds are 50/50 but they are moving in that direction. The reason is simple. The man is outdoing Hillary Clinton in underestimating his opponent.”

Jun 16, 2011
He is turning into a scapegoat of massive dimensions. This is rank stupidity. Pardoning Bradley would say to the world that the President walks the walk when he talks about freedom and justice as universal values. …
