Deep Blood Red may be the color of Communism, but it is likewise the color of RUBIES~~stones that set any girl’s heart aflutter~~Lovey had me wear red stockings and cravat~~odd in deep summer at Washington~~I’d thought~~as these Vietnamese are Communist fellas~~the red was for that bit~~but I came to find that the red stockings and cravat were redolent of rubies~~Lovey can be very single-minded~~

 

A New Vietnam awakens~Imperialism’s missed opportunities in Indochine~~Part 2~you can bet your bottom dollar that Lovey headed for Vietnam House to confer with Madame Cuong just as soon as she saw this earlier article about red, red rubies~~girls are very direct creatures when it comes to the important things in life~for instance~~large, red rubies~~

Pink Faceted Ruby from VietnamThe gem trade was stunned in the late 1980s by the discovery of rubies in Vietnam. In what surely must rank as the discovery of the century, tin and gold miners found rubies of a fine color at Luc Yen, north-west of Hanoi in 1986. Then one year later, stones of the similar color were found at Quy Chau, in Nghe An Province, west of the provincial seat of Vinh. Vietnam which had never previously been known for gemstones, suddenly found itself with what many experts believe are the two finest ruby mines in the world. Vietnamese Rubies have radiance in the dark vibrant red color and dazzling lively brilliance that take your breath away.  Most rubies are transparent and boast of a good pink to dark red color.

Girls of all nations become very best friends very quickly when there are rocks like this at stake~~

I’m fairly sure that Lovey did not read this opening article, but she certainly saw the pictures–and, in a flash!~~we were with the Cuong’s and  M. Hồ Chí Minh at Vietnam House to discuss~~Rubies~~

In Stinging Defeat for Cameron, Parliament Rejects British Participation in Syria Strike

Top news: By a vote of 285 to 272, the British House of Commons defeated a preliminary measure for authorizing a military intervention in Syria, a shocking defeat for Prime Minister David Cameron and a development that all but rules out British participation in punitive strikes against the Assad regime.

The defeat in Parliament represents the greatest setback of Cameron’s premiership and came largely at the hands of rebels within his own party. “It is clear to me that the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action,” a chastened Cameron said immediately after the vote. “I get that, and the government will act accordingly.”

There are few military implications for Cameron’s withdrawal from the coalition supportive of strikes against Assad, but the political fallout from his defeat could be serious. On Friday, French President Francois Hollande backed a military intervention, arguing that a chemical attack carried out by the Assad regime that may have left as many as 1,000 people dead “must not go unpunished.” But with Britain out, the Obama administration, which has staked out a clear position that it hopes to launch air strikes in Syria, faces serious challenges in assembling the coalition necessary to secure legal backing for the operation.

Officials in the Obama administration said late Thursday that the vote in Parliament would not dissuade the United States from striking Syria.

Snowden revelations: The Washington Post revealed on Thursday one of the most closely held secrets within the U.S. government: the size of the classified intelligence budget. The document, which was provided to the paper by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, reveals that U.S. intelligence spending has surpassed its Cold War peak and that the CIA receives a much greater portion of funding than was previously thought.


Middle East

  • The Egyptian government arrested Mohammed Beltagi, a leading figure within the Muslim Brotherhood and the head of its Freedom and Justice Party.
  • The Saudi Arabian cabinet passed a ban on domestic violence and other types of violence directed toward women.
  • Sinpoec, the Chinese energy company, bought a third of the American company Apache’s oil and gas unit in Egypt.

Asia

  • The Australian military is carrying out an investigation over whether its special forces mutilated the body of a dead insurgent.
  • Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh pledged that policy changes would halt the rupee’s slide to near record lows.
  • A suicide bomber targeted a mourning ceremony in Kunduz province and killed at least seven people, including the district governor.

Europe

  • The Spanish economy showed signs of improvement, with exports increasing, but it failed to notch a positive growth number in the second quarter.
  • The British Chamber of Commerce sharply increased its growth forecast for the years, saying the country’s economy would expand by 1.3 percent.
  • Portugal’s highest court struck down as unconstitutional the government’s plan to make it easier to to fire civil servants.

Americas

  • Thousands of protesters supporting a strike by Colombia’s agricultural workersclashed with police in the capital, Bogotá.
  • The Colombian government said it is willing to begin peace negotiations with the country’s second largest rebel group, the ELN, after the group released a Canadian hostage.
  • Amid concerns of inflation, Brazil’s central bank raised a key interest rate half a percent from 8.5 to 9 percent.

Africa

  • Amid reports that Rwandan troops may enter the Democratic Republic of the Congo, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called on Rwanda to exercise restraint.
  • South African gold mine workers plan to launch a strike as they battle for increased wages.
  • A severed human head was sent to the chief of Kenya’s police commission.

Mr. Hedrick Smith reminds us in the morning’s wee, small, hours that~There is no motivator quite like Gold, gentlemen~It is not so much the lack of gold itself, but rather the lack of access to the golden ladder~that so vexes the Americans~

Blake_jacobsladder.jpg (560×729)

Jacob’s Ladder by William Blake (c. 1800, British Museum, London)

Mr. Christopher Colford~~
 
 
Congratulations, Rick — and many thanks to you and John for sharing this eloquent essay with the group.
This is an important message for all of us today,
as Americans struggle to re-energize our willpower and spur the gridlocked political system:
“The success of the March on Washington and those other movements carry a lesson for today’s America, mired as we are in polarized, gridlocked politics, dominated by big money and special interest lobbies. . . .
“Millions of Americans in the 1960s and 1970s believed in the power of ordinary people. They believed that by acting together, they could shape the nation’s agenda and influence government policies. . . .
“They generated a period of unprecedented citizen activism that helped foster the most widely shared economic prosperity of the past seven decades and a much fairer version of American democracy. . . .
“That is a lesson we should take to heart — that by taking action ourselves, We the People can change the nation’s destiny and our own.”
 
 
A Lesson from the March on Washington
By Hedrick Smith
August 27, 2013
 
On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, former Pulitzer Prize-winningNew York Times reporter and editor Hedrick Smith reflects on the message we learned that day.
 
From the Lincoln Memorial, a great mass of humanity stretched away toward the spire of the Washington Monument. The March on Washington, 200,000 strong, was the largest protest army ever seen up to that time in the nation’s capital — a movement with historic impact and a message for us today, 50 years later.
 
The mood of that throng, as I mingled among them, was a surprise. People were determined, but not angry. They had come, yes, to protest against racial and economic discrimination, but also to celebrate. They had come to stake their claim to American democracy and to test whether People
Power could move a Congress and a President to expand the boundaries of freedom in America.
 
Like many in the crowd, I was fresh from the racial flashpoints — most recently, from Birmingham where the Gaston Motel, home to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and his team, had been bombed, sending towers of flame high into the dark night sky. King and his aides were away that night, but the explosion triggered hours of angry black rioting, brick throwing, and police tear gas. The next day, President Kennedy had called out the troops to restore calm and order.
 
Fearful of such racial violence in Washington, the Kennedy White House had tried to get the March leaders to call it off. But they refused and now the Powers-That-Be were braced for danger.
 
They misjudged the moment. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was a gentle army, schooled in the discipline of non-violence and now bent on the larger cause of moving not southern mayors but the national government.
 
In the pink dawn of August 28, 1963, long caravans of overnight buses rolled in to Washington from New England, New York and the Middle West, bringing tens of thousands of sympathizers, whites and blacks together, gathered to show solidarity with the front-line activists in the South.
 
From Dixie came the shock troops of the civil rights movement — carloads of sit-in students from Nashville and Greensboro, N.C.; Freedom Riders who had dared to ride desegregated buses into Montgomery, Alabama and Jackson, Mississippi, braving axe-handles and fire bombs from the Ku Klux Klan; and legions of street marchers who had defied the police dogs and billy clubs of Jim Crow all across the Old Confederacy.
 
There were the organizers of the March, the black labor leader A. Philip Randolph and his aide, Bayard Rustin; the fiery young activists of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee like John Lewis, Julian Bond, and Diane Nash; and the ministers from King’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, including the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth who had been slammed into a wall and hospitalized by the cannon-like jet streams of police fire hoses in Birmingham.
 
But for all their bruises, the crowd that day was in a hopeful, upbeat, almost festive mood. Many people had arrived hours early and took time to picnic on the Mall. Some played with children or lolled under the trees. Others spread blankets in the sun; fathers, dozing off, folded newspapers over their eyes. The event began with the sunny air of a mass picnic.
 
But as the event gained momentum, it became clear this was no picnic. It was history in the making — a festival of democracy, a mass celebration of People Power, appealing to Washington to mend past injustice.
 
A string of speakers called for economic as well as racial justice. But what is indelibly imprinted in the national memory are the anguished cadences of Martin Luther King’s soaring peroration. Again and again, he cried out: “I have a Dream. . . . I have a Dream. . . . I have a Dream that one day, this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. . . .”
 
But in a more impatient and less remembered passage, King was insistent. Blacks had come to Washington, he declared, “to cash a check . . . a promissory note” from the Founding Fathers “that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the ‘unalienable Rights’ of ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’” No more delay, King insisted to resounding cheers, We the People feel “the fierce urgency of now.” A year later, Congress passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act desegregating public travel and accommodations.
 
What is less appreciated now is that the March on Washington and the civil rights movement from which it sprang epitomized an era when People Power — grass roots citizen action — won many political victories in Washington.
 
A women’s movement fought for better pay and won a law on equal economic rights. A consumer’s movement, sparked by author-activist Ralph
Nader, demanded and got consumer safety laws and more honest product labeling. A then-powerful labor movement achieved a social compact for good jobs, steady raises, and company-paid health and retirement benefits. In April 1971, 20 million Americans, angered by the pollution of America’s air and waterways, went into the streets and won a stream of environmental laws from Congress and Republican President Richard Nixon. A peace movement helped end the Vietnam War.
 
The success of the March on Washington and those other movements carry a lesson for today’s America, mired as we are in polarized, gridlocked politics, dominated by big money and special interest lobbies.
 
Unlike most Americans today, who feel ignored by Washington and powerless to change that situation, millions of Americans in the 1960s and 1970s believed in the power of ordinary people. They believed that by acting together, they could shape the nation’s agenda and influence government policies.
 
Average Americans felt confident that they counted politically. Acting on that confidence, they generated a period of unprecedented citizen activism that helped foster the most widely shared economic prosperity of the past seven decades and a much fairer version of American democracy.
 
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, that is a lesson we should take to heart — that by taking action ourselves, We the People can change the nation’s destiny and our own.

 Mr. Daniel Martinez~~

hear, hear!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Schoolboys are taught that Jacob’s Golden Ladder grows slippery at the top~and that many an unlucky angel has made that long, long drop. This Biblical and physical, allusion today made secular and metaphysical by our good friend Mr. Hedrick Smith and others~suggests a troubling question~how can a rich country rather suddenly become a poor country and the reaction of the citizens appears to be~apathy. Yes, Apathy. Apathy.

I must say that I am at a loss, gentlemen, yes, at a complete loss~~to understand how a rich man can be deprived of his riches and, more so yet, denied access to the Golden Ladder at top of which he might reclaim his treasure~~and his reaction is~~apathy??

I am not a Board Certified therapist but I must say that this reaction begs all layman’s credulity~~yes, Sir~~ all of his credulity.  How is it conceivably possible that a man could have both his wealth and the mechanism to reclaim it taken from him and he is apathetic?

Not possible, gentlemen~~simply not possible.  There is something else at play here~~something more dastardly rotten in the Land of the Danes than appears to us on first blush.

What could it be?

I will say here again, as I say in every forum~~not withstanding differences of style and emphasis, both the men of the left and of the right here gathered will let out a hearty cheer to a platform of two parts~~the only issues of consequence now needed to restore American wealth, vitality, morality, happiness and ambition~~

~~To flood the country with good paying jobs~~principally via the forced repatriation of all off shored American productive enterprise.

And~~of co-equal weight~

~~A swift and savage end to the irrepressible, rapacious, ceaseless, American War Machine.

To do these two~~simple~~things is a moral imperative sans pariel~and it likewise will quickly put an end to apathy because Jacob’s Golden Ladder will once again glisten and glitter before the eyes of Americans now apathetic~~

There is no motivator quite like GOLD, gentlemen.~~

It is not so much the lack of gold itself, but rather the lack of access to the golden ladder~that so vexes the Americans~~

Little Orphant Annie

by James Whitcomb Riley

Little Orphant Annie's come to our house to stay,
An' wash the cups an' saucers up, an' brush the crumbs away,
An' shoo the chickens off the porch, an' dust the hearth, an' sweep,
An' make the fire, an' bake the bread, an' earn her board-an'-keep;
An' all us other childern, when the supper things is done,
We set around the kitchen fire an' has the mostest fun
A-list'nin' to the witch-tales 'at Annie tells about,
An' the Gobble-uns 'at gits you
             Ef you
                Don't
                   Watch
                      Out!

Onc't they was a little boy wouldn't say his prayers,--
So when he went to bed at night, away up stairs,
His Mammy heerd him holler, an' his Daddy heerd him bawl,
An' when they turn't the kivvers down, he wasn't there at all!
An' they seeked him in the rafter-room, an' cubby-hole, an' press,
An' seeked him up the chimbly-flue, an' ever'wheres, I guess;
But all they ever found was thist his pants an' roundabout--
An' the Gobble-uns'll git you
             Ef you
                Don't
                   Watch
                      Out!

An' one time a little girl 'ud allus laugh an' grin,
An' make fun of ever'one, an' all her blood an' kin;
An' onc't, when they was "company," an' ole folks was there,
She mocked 'em an' shocked 'em, an' said she didn't care!
An' thist as she kicked her heels, an' turn't to run an' hide,
They was two great big Black Things a-standin' by her side,
An' they snatched her through the ceilin' 'fore she knowed what she's about!

An' the Gobble-uns'll git you
             Ef you
                Don't
                   Watch
                      Out!

An' little Orphant Annie says when the blaze is blue,
An' the lamp-wick sputters, an' the wind goes woo-oo!
An' you hear the crickets quit, an' the moon is gray,
An' the lightnin'-bugs in dew is all squenched away,--
You better mind yer parents, an' yer teachers fond an' dear,
An' churish them 'at loves you, an' dry the orphant's tear,
An' he'p the pore an' needy ones 'at clusters all about,
Er the Gobble-uns'll git you
             Ef you
                Don't
                   Watch
                      Out!

Obama Prepares Syria Strike Over War-Weary Americans’ Objections

August 26, 2013 by 

It looks like President Barack Obama is getting ready to retaliate against Syria for crossing his “red line” on the use of weapons of mass destruction – but a new Reuters poll shows that almost nobody wants the U.S. to get involved in yet another inscrutable war in the Middle East.

The poll surveyed Americans’ opinions on whether U.S. should intervene in the Syrian conflict – regardless of whether President Bashar al-Assad violated basic human rights by using chemical weapons against civilians. It found that 60 percent of Americans are opposed to any intervention in Syria, while only 9 percent believe the U.S. should get involved. Even when asked whether it could be proved that chemical weapons have been used against civilians in Syria, only 25 percent of those polled said the U.S. would be justified in intervening.

Many who offered comments along with their poll responses justified their opposition by saying the U.S. can’t effectively police the world and that it’s not a job that President Obama, like his Presidential forebears, should assume.

Ahead of any possible military action against Assad, Obama’s critics are sharpening their knives against the President’s possible capitulation to the same second-term modus operandi of predecessors, who mired the U.S. in Middle Eastern conflict on the pretense of righting moral atrocities.

“In many ways, President Barack Obama has rehabilitated the presidency of George W. Bush in ways which the conservative president’s supporters never could,” writes Mediaite’s Noah Rothman. “This is especially true in relation to the conduct of the global war on terror; an area of public policy in which Obama arguably had the broadest public mandate to govern in ways radically dissimilar to his predecessor.”

In other words, President Obama has come full circle from his promise of “change,” and will stand amongst the Bushes when history remembers his role in extending America’s enforcement ambitions in the Middle East at the run of the 21st Century.

Washington’s all time favorite toy~~A toy that loves you back~~on command~~

It’s not business, Mr. bin Laden~it’s only personal~

Image

It’s not business, Mr. bin Laden~it’s only personal~

Mr. bin Laden and his merry pranksters may well be listed dead for purposes of business~~but I’ve yet to do with them~~personally.

You ask why, Sir?~~Alright~~here’s why , Sir~~

On going for my most recent passport snap, I was told~~”No smiling permitted, Sir, since the 9-1-1 business, you know.”

On hearing this, my eyes popped wide in amazement. Young Paulie, good lad with a camera, assured “We can do a second snap of course, Sir, as you were so startled the first.”

On moment’s reflection, I said~~”No, Paulie, lad, I want to remember this for what it was~~and carry it with me world over, so that I am ever reminded that Mr. bin Laden and his merry pranksters have yet to do with me~~personally.”

Paulie, not an Italian, did not take my meaning. I explained. “Paulie, Mia Mummy~~Una Bella Italiana~~passed to me~~by blood~~this message~~in matters serious as that between myself~~personally~~ and Mr. bin Laden and his pranksters~~it’s not business~~it’s only personal~~very, very~~personal”~~

I am off now to dance once last with Imelda in her misty Island paradise named for the Prince of Spain~where~~

I understand~~she is now both a widow and a politician~~heavens~~what a dreary ending to those charming, dancing feet~~

I am off to dance again with Imelda~~personally~~having at this point~~no further business~~to conduct with her or her nation called the wonderful Philippines~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Image

 Earlier in life, I reveled in the gaiety of the South East Asia and in the fluid arms of Imelda~~a wonderful dancer~~I had then no business with Mr. bin Laden~~or any interest in him~~personally~~ 

I believe, my first color passport photograph~~

earlier black and white shots were so much keener~~

taken in the early 1970’s

preparatory to jetting off to Clark Air Force Base and Subic Bay Naval Base

to savour for listless hours the steaming broth of South Eastern romance in~~

Senora Imelda’s tropic paradise~~named for a Prince of Spain~~The Philippine Islands~
