It’s Not Too Late: Simple, Small Changes which would Fix What’s Wrong with America

I hope to summarize things and remind everyone smaller actions which Must be taken to save the republic and save America from becoming a third world nation. There are so very many signs that our economy is at the breaking point: for example, the PE index or ratio, the prices of stocks are sky high, but earnings are about totally flat. The very rich have known a bad bust was at hand afor at least two years, and most astute economists think the bust will occur before or about mid-2020. George Soros, the world’s fourth wealthiest man, worth $72 billion, a year or soi ago took $55 billion out of the stock market and put it into liquid assets. And don’t think you can cover yourself with gold, either. In 1932 FDR confiscated all privately held gold for pennies on the dollar. But there ARE measures — relatively small measurs — which could stop the crash and fix America’s economy, if a trustworthy man could be trusted to have dictatorial powers in America, or If Lord Rothschild ordered that it be so.

Pope Francis: “Helping the Poor Isn’t Communism, It’s Gospel”

I always felt the disapproval of so many fellow conservatives/Christians because of my strong hope that we will be our brother’s keeper, even if this involves a certain amount of economic redistributionism. I feel somewhat vindicated and defended by some of Pope Francis’ recent statements. But even the founder of modern capitalist theory, Adam Smith, favored a graduated income tax (Wealth of Nations, 1776). Read More …

This and that & the future of MIR: The Land and Peace

I am at a hiatus, my creativity seems to have deserted me, and I desperately need some help writing this website and paying for the hosting and for adding a couple of plugins, such as a (paid) antimalware plugin and maybe an SEO (search engine optimization) expert.

Secrets of Life on this Oasis in Space that is Mother Earth

by The Daily Walk with Love — The Bible states summarily that “God is Life,” following this statement with “in Him is no darkness at all.” Could it not be that, as in so much in the New Testament, that the second phrase in this sentence is meant metaphorically?

Of Machines, of Men and of Co-evolution

The “technological singularity” (as computers and machines actually become smarter than men are) progresses. Google’s CEO, one of the originators of the whole idea, said that he expected it around 2040. At such, I almost scoff, believing as I do that this actually happened with Windows 8.0 (by a couple of clues), and certainly has been growing strongly in its reach during the reign of Windows 10, (and the control of computers, virtual assistants and robots over our lives). I am in as much a condition to comment on all this as anyone, having spent 15 to 20 hours a day for 15 years as an “internet addict,” working on various websites I have owned, and with ten years of college in the hard sciences.
