Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Karma Knows, Baby

The Bush gang's parting gift: a final, frantic looting of the public wealth.
The US bail-out amounts to a strings-free, public-funded windfall for big business. Welcome to "no-risk capitalism". From Naomi Klein in The Guardian.

The strangest thing about the whole matter is that, unlike other shifty maneuvers by governments, this one is being done completely in the open...and not a peep from anyone.

Where are the protests? Where are the general strikes? Where are the sit-ins and boycotts?
Governments around the world have effectively robbed their citizens and I've yet to see one protest march in the streets.

Have we become so cowed? When they see that they have easily got away with this heist, imagine the encore? Its time to say enough. And remember, in the words of Whoopi Goldberg, karma KNOWS, baby. God sees all and karma knows what you did. Vengeance is mine: I will repay saith the Lord. Not man's or woman's or law's or politico's. God's. That should give pause but likely won't.

QUOTE This duplicity is a political opportunity. Whoever wins on November 4 will have enormous moral authority. It should be used to call for a freeze on the dispersal of bail-out funds, not after the inauguration but right away. All deals should be renegotiated, this time with the public getting the guarantees.
It is risky, of course, to interrupt the bail-out process. Nothing could be riskier, however, than allowing the Bush gang their parting gift to big business - the gift that will keep on taking. UNQUOTE
