“Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind.”~New Year’s Morn~2014~

Mr. Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl”~~here depicted~~

~~

Our Little Match Girl is emblematic of the great mass of disenfranchised Americans this New Year’s Day, 2014.~~

~~

She stares through the window from her desperately cold sadness to see the base, gluttonous, gaucherie of Washington~~a City where the Party never stops and the people who live outside Her walls~~cannot even stay warm at Wintertime~~

 Hans Christian Andersen

The Little Match-Seller~~
~~

It was terribly cold and nearly dark on the last evening of the old year, and the snow was falling fast. In the cold and the darkness, a poor little girl, with bare head and naked feet, roamed through the streets. It is true she had on a pair of slippers when she left home, but they were not of much use. They were very large, so large, indeed, that they had belonged to her mother, and the poor little creature had lost them in running across the street to avoid two carriages that were rolling along at a terrible rate. One of the slippers she could not find, and a boy seized upon the other and ran away with it, saying that he could use it as a cradle, when he had children of his own. So the little girl went on with her little naked feet, which were quite red and blue with the cold.

In an old apron she carried a number of matches, and had a bundle of them in her hands. No one had bought anything of her the whole day, nor had any one given here even a penny. Shivering with cold and hunger, she crept along; poor little child, she looked the picture of misery. The snowflakes fell on her long, fair hair, which hung in curls on her shoulders, but she regarded them not.

Lights were shining from every window, and there was a savory smell of roast goose, for it was New-year’s eve – yes, she remembered that. In a corner, between two houses, one of which projected beyond the other, she sank down and huddled herself together. She had drawn her little feet under her, but she could not keep off the cold; and she dared not go home, for she had sold no matches, and could not take home even a penny of money. Her father would certainly beat her; besides, it was almost as cold at home as here, for they had only the roof to cover them, through which the wind howled, although the largest holes had been stopped up with straw and rags.

Her little hands were almost frozen with the cold. Ah! perhaps a burning match might be some good, if she could draw it from the bundle and strike it against the wall, just to warm her fingers.

<  2  >

     She drew one out – “scratch!” how it sputtered as it burnt! It gave a warm, bright light, like a little candle, as she held her hand over it. It was really a wonderful light. It seemed to the little girl that she was sitting by a large iron stove, with polished brass feet and a brass ornament. How the fire burned! and seemed so beautifully warm that the child stretched out her feet as if to warm them, when, lo! the flame of the match went out, the stove vanished, and she had only the remains of the half-burnt match in her hand.

She rubbed another match on the wall. It burst into a flame, and where its light fell upon the wall it became as transparent as a veil, and she could see into the room. The table was covered with a snowy white table-cloth, on which stood a splendid dinner service, and a steaming roast goose, stuffed with apples and dried plums. And what was still more wonderful, the goose jumped down from the dish and waddled across the floor, with a knife and fork in its breast, to the little girl. Then the match went out, and there remained nothing but the thick, damp, cold wall before her.

She lighted another match, and then she found herself sitting under a beautiful Christmas-tree. It was larger and more beautifully decorated than the one which she had seen through the glass door at the rich merchant’s. Thousands of tapers were burning upon the green branches, and colored pictures, like those she had seen in the show-windows, looked down upon it all. The little one stretched out her hand towards them, and the match went out.

The Christmas lights rose higher and higher, till they looked to her like the stars in the sky. Then she saw a star fall, leaving behind it a bright streak of fire. “Some one is dying,” thought the little girl, for her old grandmother, the only one who had ever loved her, and who was now dead, had told her that when a star falls, a soul was going up to God.

<  3  >

     She again rubbed a match on the wall, and the light shone round her; in the brightness stood her old grandmother, clear and shining, yet mild and loving in her appearance.

“Grandmother,” cried the little one, “O take me with you; I know you will go away when the match burns out; you will vanish like the warm stove, the roast goose, and the large, glorious Christmas-tree.”

And she made haste to light the whole bundle of matches, for she wished to keep her grandmother there. And the matches glowed with a light that was brighter than the noon-day, and her grandmother had never appeared so large or so beautiful. She took the little girl in her arms, and they both flew upwards in brightness and joy far above the earth, where there was neither cold nor hunger nor pain, for they were with God.

In the dawn of morning there lay the poor little one, with pale cheeks and smiling mouth, leaning against the wall; she had been frozen to death on the last evening of the year; and the New-year’s sun rose and shone upon a little corpse! The child still sat, in the stiffness of death, holding the matches in her hand, one bundle of which was burnt.

“She tried to warm herself,” said some.

No one imagined what beautiful things she had seen, nor into what glory she had entered with her grandmother, on New-Year’s Day.~~

The song begins by posing a rhetorical question as to whether it is right that old times be forgotten, and is generally interpreted as a call to remember long-standing friendships.[9]Thomson’s Select Songs of Scotland was published in 1799 in which the second verse about greeting and toasting was moved to its present position at the end.[9]

Most common use of the song involves only the first verse and the chorus. The last lines of both of these are often sung with the extra words “For the sake of” or “And days of”, rather than Burns’ simpler lines. This allows one note for each word, rather than the slight melisma required to fit Burns’ original words to the melody.

John Begg – Shinbashi

Here is the second post on another great little bar in the Shimbashi neighborhood of Tokyo.  We stumbled into this place when I had planned to go to Susie’s but found it closed.  John Begg sits right next door, and it’s sign is quite a bit more prominent and inviting than Susie’s.  I should start off by saying that regrettably I did not take any pictures at John Begg, so I shamelessly clipped these off the internet.  To the Japanese reviewer who took them, I hope you do not mind!

John Begg was a Scotsman from Aberdeen.  He started the New Loughnagar Distillery in the 1845, and as a result of receiving the “Royal Warrant of Appointment” as a supplier to the Queen (Victoria) he changed the name to Royal Loughnagar Distillery.  John Begg passed away in 1880, and the company was later acquired by John Dewar Ltd and Sons in 1916.  Today the company is still going strong as part of the massive holdings of the beverage giant Diageo.

While the origins of John Begg Whiskey are well documented, how this John Begg bar came about in Shinbashi remains a bit of a mystery.  What I can tell you is the place is run by a Mama-san who has been tending to this same establishment for quite a long time (40-50 years?).  It is my understanding that this bar originated in 1949.  My guess is that not much inside has changed since.  It is a much bigger place than Susie’s next door, but before you think it must be large, please don’t forget you had to turn sideways when you walked into Susie’s.  John Begg is small.  A very nice curved wood bar fronts around 6 or so stools along the right side of the room.

To the left is a seating area with three small sections that can seat around 9 at the most.  A few comfortable looking very small couch type pieces along with a few stools.  That’s it.  What makes this place so cool is the decor, both behind and on the bar as well as on the walls.  It is tasteful, old, and classy.  There is a very large painting of the Mama-san when she was young.  A very beautiful lady, both then as well as now.

John Begg has many different liquors but seems to specialize in Whiskey.  Begg’s brand is of course the “house pour”, and I would recommend the 12 year old Royal Loughnagar Single Malt, which was quite tasty.  Two capable and experienced barmen tend very professionally to the drinks.  The service is first rate.  One speaks a little bit of English, which was very helpful (I did not have my Japanese co-workers along for this adventure).  The place had some classic looking coasters seen here.

Go to John Begg if you want to relax and go back in time.  Enjoy the serenity of the place, the nice service, and the fine cocktails.  The craziness of Shinbashi is outside all around you, but within these walls you can escape.  You can enjoy.  There is a Ginza feel here, which is only a few blocks away.

I hope to return to this place with some of my Japanese friends so I can find out more about it from the Mama-san.  Shinbashi, Tokyo and the world needs more places like John Begg.  Search them out before they are gone forever, like Susie’s next door.

    • Washington, DC~~a beautiful and yet now~~terribly troubled capital city~~

      Fact is the Republican Party is supposed to be the part of small, limited government and while they talk the talk, they just don’t walk the walk, they either don’t deliver, can’t deliver or don’t want to deliver.

    Quite so, Craig~~quite so~~and that is what the pitched combat in our Party is about~~what does the Party stand for~~whom does it represent~~a combat that to my mind may very well lead to the dissolution of both Parties fairly soon as the utter failure to represent core constituent groups applies even more brazenly to the other Party~~than to our own~~ 

    ~

  • ~~I think it is dawning on a very broad cross section of the Americans that this city of my birth and now~~aged life~~ Washington, District of Columbia~~is the mortal enemy of the Americans and that what needs to be radically transformed is not America Herself but rather Washington, DC~~a distinction~~ and a difference of~~considerable consequence~~

Ronald Wilson Reagan~IN ONE WORD: Kindheartedness

Image

Ronald Reagan as a young star~~preparing for his ultimate role~~

A kindhearted world leader~~

~

December 30, 2013
~

Ronald Wilson Reagan (/ˈrɒnəld ˈwɪlsən ˈreɪɡən/; February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)

~

IN ONE WORD: Kindheartedness

~

Exposition~~

~

So many laudatory things have been written about President Reagan by others that I will simply say here that the character trait he best exemplified of which I made personal note of was his kindheartedness.

~

This attribute was best dramatized by his personal correspondence. All Presidents write letters to American citizens who’ve written them for various reasons that are hand selected by staff for response. Most are composed and auto-penned out at lowly clerical level and never seen by the President.

~

President Reagan took pains to write his notes personally, by hand and the subjects addressed were of many different kinds~~often very intimate and touching upon the long nights of the soul through which we are all destined to eventually go. He cared for people and was fascinated by them~~on a personal, one-on-one basis.

~

Often, he would put a bit of money in the envelope to a writer who was down on his luck~~designed to accompany his note of encouragement. He was a gentleman~~in the purest sense of that term.

~

Sui Generis.

~

He broke the mold.~

~

The mold is broken.~

~

He was a great leader to be sure~~but all that sort has been covered by others many times in other venues. I remember what might strike the reader as a comparatively small matter

~

~~I remember President Reagan’s kindheartedness.

~

That trait was twin brother to his boundless optimism and both were very real and visceral and they resonated with people directly, tangibly, personally.

~

He and I were of like mind that charity–caring for one’s fellow man~~is one’s personal responsibility~~not to be fobbed off on the government or the Church~~he believed as do I~~that caring for the sad, the poor, the misbegotten, is one’s personal responsibility and, in sharing that belief, he is a most fond memory.

~

He was inspirational.

~

Simply.

~

Inspirational.

Don’t productive Americans deserve a civil rights movement too?

Winston Churchill once said, “I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.” Throughout his life, from his time a journalist to his years as the British Prime Minister, a bottle of booze was never far from Churchill’s side. The wartime leader was notorious for his love of a drink. He is said to have drunk hock, a type of wine, with breakfast. Churchill would then amp up with alcohol intake during the day. At meal times the booze flowed freely. He was known to drink both champagne and brandy at lunch and dinner. Churchill would often joke about his alcohol intake. He once told the King of Saudi Arabia that his absolute rule of life required drinking before, during, and after meals.~~

Obamacare Train Wreck Could Derail US Recovery

Monday, 30 Dec 2013 09:22 AM

The U.S. economy is gaining strength, but the Obamacare train wreck, festering problems in far away China and uncertain leadership at the Federal Reserve could derail the recovery.No small courage will be required for good sense to finally restore American prosperity.

Here are three things that could derails a full economic recovery.

Obamacare

President Barack Obama is imposing the Affordable Care Act on a justifiably unwilling citizenry.

The botched rollout is laying bare the absolute incompetence of the Washington bureaucracy, but that is not the worst of it.Many young Americans have decided that Obamacare health insurance is too expensive for their needs, and insurers face financial ruin paying claims to a less healthy population of policyholders than anticipated. They will charge higher rates in 2015 and may require a bailout.

Don’t count on Republicans winning the Senate and putting Obamacare out of its misery — the electorate may prove too cynical.

In the 2013 Virginia gubernatorial election, voters, angry about Obamacare, blamed Democrat Terry McAuliffe. Yet, he managed a narrow victory by promising free health care to 300,000 citizens by expanding Medicaid.

Lest jobs creation and growth be handicapped by an excessively expensive and bureaucratic health care system, “makers” may simply have to tell the “takers” enough is enough, march on Washington and demand radical changes.

Don’t productive Americans deserve a civil rights movement too?

China’s Banking Mess

China’s economic miracle may prove a bigger fraud than the American pre-crisis prosperity built on shabby lending and consumer spending on steroids.

Many Chinese businesses that stock Wall-Mart with unimaginably inexpensive gadgets were built on loans they can’t repay. Similarly, banks have financed provincial governments to build cities occupied by displaced farmers that have no jobs.

Beijing has raised interest rates to gradually deflate bubbles in stock and land prices, but now borrowers cannot pay those rates and banks and private lenders could face ruin.

A financial crisis won’t end the rise of China, but it would expose a great fraud: the superiority of state-directed capitalism over western democracy and free markets.

No one would be more disappointed than the collectivists at National Public Broadcasting and other liberal media, who celebrate each Chinese achievement with the enthusiasm the French cheered General Washington’s victories over the British.

The simultaneous debunking of the ACA and Chinese miracle offer conservatives the opportunity to refocus the debate in America from the shortcomings of free markets and private enterprise to helping those thrive and contribute to middle class prosperity as they did in the 1980s and 1990s.

Federal Reserve

During the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve balked at bailing out GM. The Fed could have bought the automaker’s bad debt, just as it took bad mortgages off banks’ books. Ben Bernanke pronounced assisting GM would be “industrial policy” and limited the Fed to extraordinary measures to stabilize banks and credit markets.

Obama used TARP—the Treasury fund established by President Bush and Congress—to rescue both GM and American International Group, an insurance company.

The next financial crisis well could be defined by the coincident plights of health insurance companies under Obamacare, and the sagging fortunes of American companies who invested in China’s “recession proof” economy.

New Fed Chairman Janet Yellen is well known for her very liberal political views, which not so incidentally color her economics. In a crisis, she could see the limits of Fed policy discretion very differently than Bernanke.

Using the Fed’s money printing machinery to bail out health insurance companies and Obamacare could put America on a path to inflation and corruption similar to Latin American nations during the 1970s and 80s.

It would be up to Republicans in the Senate to shut down the chamber if necessary to force hearings and compel Chairman Yellen to defend the dollar, not debase the currency.

Standing up to the failures of liberalism, when it counts, has never been politically easy—and Republicans like Speaker Boehner and Congressman Ryan are rightly the targets of Tea Party criticism.

All along, at crisis moments like these, they have capitulated. Now standing strong for America is even more difficult, but if not now then when?

Hedrick Smith has asked us “Who stole the American Dream?”~I ask a different question~”Who SOLD America?” I say~Globalized industry and international finance are the tools of the traitors at America’s throat~we must rid ourselves of these traitors~ruthlessly~

Image

Marcus Tullius Cicero, English byname Tully    (born 106 bce, Arpinum, Latium [now Arpino,Italy]—died Dec. 7, 43 bce, Formiae, Latium [now Formia]), Roman statesman, lawyer, scholar, and writer who vainly tried to uphold republican principles in the final civil wars that destroyed the Roman Republic. His writings include books of rhetoric, orations, philosophical and political treatises, and letters. He is remembered in modern times as the greatest Roman orator and innovator of what became known as Ciceronian rhetoric.

~~ 

 

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.

 

But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.

 

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through…all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

 

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

 

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

 

A murderer is less to fear.

 

The traitor is the plague.”

 

 

 – Marcus Tullius Cicero~~

Jefferson today would be on the barricades of the tea party patriots~seeking a man who would not compromise and instead kept his character intact~We ask~where is such a hero in our politics today who will not layer compromise upon compromise until he has no character left?

Annex - Fonda, Henry (Best Man, The)_NRFPT_01

Henry Fonda in The Best Man, released in 1964

Fonda’s hero in the film is the man who refuses to blackmail his opponent because “one by one, these compromises, these small corruptions, destroy “character””

~~

We ask~~where is such a hero in our politics today who will not layer compromise upon compromise until he has no character left?

~~

Dear Bernie~~

There is no question that it is troubling to many here that Tea Party and other groups of a generically conservative populist tincture are very much disparaged by the Democrats~~understandably because they fear them so and know they will never have their support–but likewise by the Republicans~~who consider them to be ignorant rubes, scolds and nags.
 
This is troubling because nobody–except for a few here–would have ever heard Jake Boehner’s name had it not been for the Tea Party. I am personally very troubled by this dynamic here today at Washington, as it smacks of Royalism and its attendant notion that certain elite groups have taken it upon themselves to decide who the Americans ought to vote for. 
 
Evidence how the polling men are already asking not “whom do you favor for President in 2016″ and let you answer but rather~~ “OK, which of the these do you favor in 2016?”  It never appears to dawn on the polling men that the only thing the Americans would likely decide about all the choices given, if they even knew anything much about most of these putative candidates, is that the Americans would likely say that they can all go hang themselves.
 
That said, unless somebody who knows what’s what and can be forceful in the eye of the storm presents himself, the horses being loaded into starter’s gate by the press and the polling men, are likely to make up the field in 2016~~from which gate will very almost certainly spring the winner.
The only qualification for getting in starter’s gate seems to be a preening presentation and comparison of very dull, yet also, gaudy, resumes of what the horses going in the gate have accomplished here at Washington~~notwithstanding that the Americans hate the Washington class.
 
All this is odd on a personal level as I met Mrs. Palin about 2 weeks before McCain trotted her out to meet the Americans and I remember thinking~~she has entirely too fetching a shape to her to waste on anything as dreary as politics.  I remember being alarmed at the fury with which the combined forces of Washington’s power groups became so instantly frantic to destroy her reputation~~which they certainly succeeded in doing in spades.
 
What was generally said to me was “she’s so stupid,” a charge that at Washington ought to be used with great caution as the political men here and those in the press services are no big bargain in the brains department. I remember thinking that they must be afraid of her as otherwise they would simply have ignored her.
 
One of the fellows in this group pointed finger at me and said “Begg–if that girl gets in, you are personally responsible.”  I think that says a lot in that many here at Washington really do think that we make the rules~~which is, Royalism.  I told the fellow that “it is none of your business, or mine, who the Americans want to elect and if this girl gets in it will because the people wanted her.”
 
This maybe the crux of the trouble here~~a system of kingmakers, king breakers and little tin kings themselves.  This is not a pretty thought given the backgrounds of so many of the men here who prance around as though they were heir to the throne of England when in fact they arrived here many, many years ago from some nondescript part of America having failed at insurance selling or some such.
 
Harder yet to fathom the reporters~~members of a class that used to be exclusively filled with men with holes in their shoes and cheap pint of liquor in their back pockets.  All of a sudden, these groups are Royalty.
 
That aside, the Americans are a very disparate people–it would be hard to think who, if anyone, speaks for any appreciable number of them.  The better men from the better families have, particularly so after Romney, abandoned politics altogether~~and understandably so. Who, having anything in the way of social background, save perhaps the Bush family~~a mixed blessing~~would stand for office?
 
I do not pretend, as others here do that I know the American people in my bone marrow, but it seems to me that the men of Washington have, in the last 20 or so years, become, evermore ostentatiously, self-ordained experts on what the Americans want and need from their government~~and likewise obsessed with stealing money~~personally.  
 
I do not think it overstatement to say that we have arrived in a place not unlike the America Jefferson looked out at in disquietude and remarked, particularly having seen a fair amount of Europe~~ “the people are pressed down by an aristocratic class and have no advantage except poverty and perpetual war.”
Sounds like home to me.
 
This observation, collectively agreed by the framers, led to revolution~~which is why I sence that another such revolution is fast coming here~~I very much don’t want that, as revolutions are invariably messy affairs, but I can’t see a way out~~save our finding a leader who will slice off some crowned heads around here.
 
Jefferson would, most assuredly, have been a Tea Party rabble-rouser because he so detested entrenched, codified, Royalist power. Hence the title of this now labyrinthine essay in which we find ourselves called–”what would they make of us–our founders–if they saw how the government treats the American people today?”
 
A rather odd duck, and a terrible philosopher, summed up the attitude of official Washington as it is today constituted~comme ca~~
 
 
My point to you remains–this revolution can be run through one of the major Parties if we can somehow find the right men.
 
I can’t think the founders would be happy with us today.  No, not at all.
 
Yours, 
 
John~~
~~~~~
Dear Ramin and friends~~

 
Ramin–I agree your assessment of the Bill just past–it was a remarkable gaucherie for sure– but I lament your despondent response to it.
 
These guys can’t win all the time, Ramin.
 
Outside of this city~everybody hates them~the trouble is that the opposition to this city is fragmented and uninformed as to how to take power~~too many boutique Parties~too much internecine warfare~~not enough discipline–too many big egos, too many guys with their little plans to save the nation they have been carrying around in a briefcase for decades–politics is both very hard and very easy at one and the same time–
 
There is a revolution brewing–both here and in West Europe–against the same enemy–consolidated, globalized power at Washington and Brussels~~what is needed is a plan and a galvanizing leader to defeat that enemy.
 
The history of man is a continuing casting off of autocratic power–it’s continual–you get an ossified, self-congratulatory, inbred aristocracy that pushes the people far enough and them the bomb goes off.  And it will go off–both here and at Brussels very, very soon.  The conceit that you can control and abuse the great mass of people indefinitely without any consequence belies all history-from the dawn of man–autocratic governments fall–they always–fall–
 
So our task, amigos–is–what to do with that certain knowledge that the autocratic regime at Washington will fall–and soon?
 
We need to have a think about this as~~  when it falls–somebody will take over–I’d prefer it be an well=modulated, educated, thoughtful, affable man rather than a Hitler–but if the better men throw in the towel–we will get a Hitler.  I have been writing for 2 years to prevent that happening.
 
Thinking men have the capacity to plan to replace the old regime with a good, fresh start here at Washington.  Let’s be of good cheer and upbeat and positive.  What really is disconcerting to me is that so many good Americans have simply thrown in the towel–that’s not the American way–or for that matter the English, German or French way–we are people who are proud of our national identity–globalism in all it’s manifestations is the enemy of all civilized people–so let’s buck up and take over this little cow town and make it do what we want.
 
How so?  Here so-
 
Politics is hard and unbelieving boring work–to run and win a national campaign–but it’s easy when the great mass of people are completely disaffected with Washington–and they are–but you must have people who know the boring mechanics of getting a nomination who are just as disaffected as you and the others here~~I know the mechanics likely better than anyone here–Steve knows a lot as well–he’s been in combat in the States–I was a cog in the machine for many years–I know all the technical stuff that needs doing–which is one of the reasons why I so strongly advocate for staying within the structure of one of the major parties–free–and willing–labour on the ground from people who know best how to win Ohio-10 or MI-8 or PA–13–nobody can know all of this by himself—-and that is why the Party structure is so valuable–so the key is to get the nomination of one of the Parties and let the worker bees in the States and Districts do the drudge work–they’ll be happy to help–as soon as you get the nomination they go to work for you–so don’t cast off that amenity–it’s volunteer labour in the trenches– on the ground coming from people who know the terrain–it’s priceless–and at the same time–it’s free.
 
But we have to give the people something specific–a comparatively simple program–easy to understand–endlessly repeated to them by a guy who is affable–not shrill–not the sky is falling in–just an affable guy who wants to change Washington and turn it on its head—-this idea has had mass appeal going back to Wallace in 72 and Perot in 92–I can’t even imagine how much more viscerally the Americans hate Washington today than they did in 72 or 92.
 
I personally feel that the need to DE-globalize the finance sector to bring good jobs back home to America and rejuvenate the industrial base– trumps all other issues–even the debt–as–without good jobs–America really is over–let’s find a guy to sell our product–politicians are salesmen–I simply wish I were a younger man with younger arteries as I know far more than I ever wanted to know about the mechanics of the election process–consider how massive the number of Americans who are disaffected with Washington–if people could stick to a very focused objective and find a leader– a massive victory could be attained by taking over either one of the established Parties–they are both empty shells that serve no one save themselves and their courtiers–but they think the bacchanal will go on forever and it won’t–it simply can’t–
 
But the autocrats can’t dodge away from this–if I get more votes than you–I win–so let’s at least give it a go, what–I mean we all have kids and we are all distressed so to me having a go at taking over one of these Parties is very worth the effort as~we’ve nothing to lose~~in fact–it’s an obligation for good men to get involved.
 
First off–we need to be optimistic–Jack Kennedy and Reagan were the  best Presidents of our lifetimes and they shared that trait–sunny optimism–it counts for a lot–it’s intangible–but it attracts voters like a moth to a lantern.  Be optimistic–my little plan–my core message appears below–it addresses the most important hot button issues both here and West Europe–the hatred of central authority and globalization.
 
Lisa remarked to me not long ago that I could win in a walk in EITHER Party simply by stressing this platform–particularly among the young who see the locomotion of destruction coming for them–if you worry about your kids–believe me –they are, or soon will be far more worried than you are, Ramin–all other issues would resolve themselves—-deficits, even debt, immigration, social inequities–all would be solved if we advocated for this platform alone~~
 
Moreover–we could run this solely on social media–no interviews with the established press services–just on social sites–word of mouth–we could run a front porch campaign–once we win a few primaries the conventional press will have to pick us up as we are an existential threat to Washington–but we don’t need them and will simply ignore them–and let them sit in their glass boxes talking to themselves and about us–while we proceed to win
 
All the dashing about in traditional modern campaigns has nothing to do with meeting the people or pressing the flesh–it has to do with fund-raising exercises–while I think that we will get mass funding when people start to hear about us–we will not need as much as the major parties candidates because we can run this campaign out of our living rooms–elections ultimately turn not on money or flash Washington resumes–but rather on ideas–good ideas–let’s get some good ideas out in front of the Americans commencing 2014 and take a shot and see if we can save this country–I know it can be done–people want a revolution against Washington–let’s stop thinking about the groups aligned against us and adopt a positive and optimistic program of our own to give the people their revolution–let’s be creative, and optimistic–the race begins January 2014–it ends November 2016–with God’s help and our collective effort and thought–we can take over this city and make it work for the people~~boundless optimism is endemic to the Americans–let’s concentrate on putting boundless optimism to work to do this first and foremost~~

The rich man ought not be taxed at all~~he ought be compelled to train and employ the poor man~~directly~~cutting Washington out altogether as the middleman~~

~~The principal need in America today is~~financial and industrial De-Globalization~~to facilitate the promotion of the possibility for the average man to get and keep a good job with good benefits paid by the employer~~as was done not very long ago.~~

Tom~~Agreed all points~you have to have the right horse for the right course–in a number of the races I will be tending in 2014~~we are sending moderate men–which is good because they are in moderate districts–as far as I am concerned we can go as far right as the world turns–but reality is that what we really need is numbers–numbers stir the drink–we already control the lower chamber–if we have the upper chamber in 2015–and we will–I don’t care much about the beliefs of the men in my red jackets–I just want to see floods of red jackets–I just want control of the two chambers–initially so to block any further shenanigans from white house and then to set the table for a red President in 2017~~and of course Rush et al are in business to excite the red meat eaters and he gets paid for that–it’s a business–I don’t begrudge Rush his living–as long as his living does not diverge from my interest in getting as many red jackets as possible elected~~if we win majorities with vegetarian moderate men in red jackets or of raw red meat-eating Tea Party men in red jackets–it’s all the same to me–but I don’t want any losses–losses ruin my disposition–Bernie wrote earlier–and correctly–that our Party has an uncanny ability to lose races in which our horses are heavy favorites to win–no more–and I agree with Ramin–it is a strategic error to slam the door on Dr. Paul, Governor Palin or any other jockey in red jacket–we are supposed to be the big tent–and not lock our own people out of it–Ramin was right–Romney’s guys made a strategic decision to lock Paul and Palin out of the convention–and it cost them the White House–learn from our mistakes–to repeat Reagan–“never speak ill of another Republican”~~if they wear red they are our friend–if they wear blue–they are our enemy~~this ain’t higher math, kids~John Daniel Begg Public Affairs

~~~

Dear Tom and Bernie~~thanks for your input–Bernie–the men you venerate, Goldwater, Reagan, Laxalt–worked within the Party to make their branch of the Party dominant.  They were Party men.  The same dynamics existed in 1964 as they do today~~the dominant wing–led then by George Romney and Nelson Rockefeller was even more unkind and savage to Goldwater than are any of the Washington insider types who face down Tea Party, Dr.Paul, Palin and the rest of  right flank of the party today.

 
If you think as I do that we are, at a minimum, a centre-right nation–and likely right now further right than that in desire of a massive over correction against the Party of the incumbent Executive–so–back a guy who holds your views in the Party–there are many of us.
 
Goldwater won the nomination despite his being an outsider and things said of him then were very reminiscent of what is said of Tea Party and others today–said by both Democrats and George Romney and Nelson–but Goldwater won despite them all–and even though he lost the general election he paved the way for the eventual rise of Reagan who likewise remained to the end a Party man.
 
The major Parties are clean slates–get enough support for your guy–do the dogged, boring work necessary to get him nominated, use the priceless–on the ground in the districts and states–free labor of committed Party workers~~and take the White House and both chambers.
~~
Then~~we can do anything we want.~~
~~
 
There is nothing inherently evil or immoral about either of the Parties–if they are now run by men you don’t like–run a guy you do like–within the Party apparatus–as did Reagan, Goldwater and Laxalt.  There really is no realistic way to win any other way.~~and Tom Clark is, I must say, most correct here that if you choose to sit out the race altogether or support one of the peripheral Parties that virtually no one has ever heard of–it benefits the Democrats because they are always lock step behind their nominee~~we just lost a Governor out here in Virginia in large measure because the Libertarian took about 8%–well more than twice the spread of difference between the major Party standard bearers~~
 
For me–there is only one issue of consequence in this country right now~~

The rich man ought not be taxed at all~~he ought be compelled to employ the poor man~~directly~~

~~The principal need in America today is~~financial and industrial De-Globalization~~to facilitate the promotion of the possibility for the average man to get and keep a good job with good benefits paid by the employer~~as was done not very long ago.~~

 

If you ran a man–in either Party–whose platform was that–and only that–he would win in a landslide and his down ballot followers would do likewise~~John

Dear Bernie~~

 
There is no question that it is troubling to many here that Tea Party and other groups of a generically conservative populist tincture are very much disparaged by the Democrats~~understandably because they fear them so and know they will never have their support–but likewise by the Republicans~~who consider them to be ignorant rubes and nags.
 
This is troubling because nobody–except for a few here–would have ever heard Jake Boehner’s name had it not been for the Tea Party. I am personally very troubled by this dynamic here today at Washington, as it smacks of Royalism and its attendant notion that certain elite groups have taken it upon themselves to decide who the Americans ought to vote for. 
 
Evidence how the polling men are already asking not “whom do you favor for President in 2016” and let you answer but rather~~ “OK, which of the these do you favor in 2016?”  It never appears to dawn on the polling men that the only thing the Americans would likely decide about all the choices given, if they even knew anything much about most of these putative candidates, is that the Americans would likely say that they can all go hang themselves.
 
That said, unless somebody who knows what’s what and can be forceful in the eye of the storm presents himself, the horses being loaded into starters gate by the press and the polling men, are likely to make up the field in 2016~~from which gate will very almost certainly spring the winner.  The only qualification for getting in starter’s gate seems to be a presentation and comparison of very dull, yet also, gaudy, resumes of what the horses going in the gate have accomplished here at Washington~notwithstanding that the Americans hate the Washington class.
 
All this is odd on a personal level as I met Mrs. Palin about 2 weeks before McCain trotted her out to meet the Americans and I remember thinking~~she has entirely to fetching a shape to her to waste on anything as dreary as politics.  I remember being alarmed at the fury with which the combined forces of Washington’s power groups became so instantly frantic to destroy her reputation~which they certainly succeeded in doing in spades.
 
What was generally said to me was “she’s so stupid,” a charge that at Washington ought to be used with great caution as the political men here and those in the press services are no big bargain in the brains department.  I remember thinking that they must be afraid of her as otherwise they would simply have ignored her.
 
One of the fellows in this group pointed finger at me and said “Begg–if that girl gets in, you are personally responsible.”  I think that says a lot in that many here at Washington really do think that we make the rules~which is, Royalism.  I told the fellow that “it is none of your business, or mine, who the Americans want to elect and if this girl gets in it will because the people wanted her.”
 
This maybe the crux of the trouble here~~a system of kingmakers, king breakers and little tin kings themselves.  This is not a pretty thought given the backgrounds of so many of the men here who prance around as though they were heir to the throne of England when in fact they arrived here many, many years ago from some nondescript part of America having failed at insurance selling or some such.
 
Harder yet to fathom the reporters~~members of a class that used to be exclusively filled with men with holes in their shoes and cheap pint of liquor in their back pockets.  All of a sudden, these groups are Royalty.
 
That aside, the Americans are a very disparate people–it would be hard to think who, if anyone, speaks for any appreciable number of them.  The better men from the better families have, particularly so after Romney, abandoned politics altogether~~and understandably so. Who, having anything in the way of social background, save perhaps the Bush family~~a mixed blessing~~would stand for office?
 
I do not pretend, as others here do that I know the American people in my bone marrow, but it seems to me that the men of Washington have, in the last 20 or so years, become, evermore ostentatiously, self-ordained experts on what the Americans want and need from their government–and likewise obsessed with stealing money–personally.  
 
I do not think it overstatement to say that we have arrived in a place not unlike the America Jefferson looked out at in disquietude and remarked, particularly having seen a fair amount of Europe~~ “the people are pressed down by an aristocratic class and have no advantage except poverty and perpetual war.”  Sounds like home to me.
 
This observation, collectively agreed by the framers, led to revolution~~which is why I sence that another such revolution is fast coming here~~I very much don’t want that, as revolutions are invariably messy affairs, but I can’t see a way out~~save our finding a leader who will slice off some crowned heads around here.
 
Jefferson would, most assuredly, have been a Tea Party rabble-rouser because he so detested entrenched, codified, Royalist power.  Hence the title of this now labyrinthine essay in which we find ourselves called–“what would they make of us–our founders–if they saw how the government treats the American people today?”
 
A rather odd duck, and a terrible philosopher, summed up the attitude of official Washington as it is today constituted~comme ca~~
 
 
My point to you remains–this revolution can be run through one of the major Parties if we can somehow find the right men.
 
I can’t think the founders would be happy with us today.  No, not at all.
 
Yours, 
 
John

Greed may now be naughty yet greed remains America~

“In a real dark night of the soul, it is always three o’clock in the morning, day after day.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Scott Fitzgerald was a reasonably talented writer who managed being the quintessential American novelist and his work, The Great Gatsby, is the quintessential American novel. There is little not in the book that one need know of the Americans.

 

We ask~~why then, is Gatsby so critically panned~~times now seven times~~ by the librarian class? Librarians mutter that there “is nothing to this book~~beyond money and ostentatious display!”

 

But girls, girls~~that is what America is~~money, quickly, and sloppily acquired, and its ostentatious display~~that is America.

 

Despite what schoolmarmish ones might tell you~~the story of Gatsby is the story of the Americans~~a people insatiably thirsty for more money than they can count and an opulence that Kings would envy.

 

Willy Maugham, a writer more adroit than myself or even our thirsty Scotty, said of the Americans~~

~~

“The Americans are so terribly successful principally because they know who they are~~something most people do not know~~the Americans are a people feverishly devoted to the twin lusts of~~~ big business and fornication~~and very, very little else.”~~

~~~~

fitzgerald1

“At any rate, let us love for a while, for a year or so, you and me. That’s a form of divine drunkenness that we can all try. There are only diamonds in the whole world, diamonds and perhaps the shabby gift of disillusion.~~

F. Scott Fitzgerald home at 6 Gateway Drive in Great Neck Estates, the basis of Nick's house in The Great Gatsby

Scott Fitzgerald lived with his wife Zelda Fitzgerald at 6 Gateway Drive in Great Neck Estates, in King’s Point on Long Island, New York, from 1922-1924s, and based West Egg in the book, The Great Gatsby, on Great Neck/King’s Point, and the neighbouring East Egg was modelled on the more affluent Sands Point

The couple moved there in 1922 after the birth of their daughter “Scottie” and the home became the inspiration for Nick Carraway’s West Egg house in the novel. Read more about the development of the story here.

It would have been more creative for Pope Francis to say~”hey rich guys~employ some poor guys.”

Image

@Chan Lowe

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

For now, I’ll say this–I do think that Papa Francis took a look at his position and thought something like this~~”I am 77 years old, I have one lung, I am not well~~what do I want to do with the years I have left~~get all involved in the banking scandal at Vatican Bank~~or the problem with the homosexual priests~~or do I want to go out among the people and live as Jesus lived~~after all the Pope represents Jesus here on earth~~I have decided to go among the poor and let the enormous bureaucracy take care of the PR problems”~~this is how I think his mind works~~I think Pope recognizes that he~~like the American President and the English Crown as we’ve discussed in our notes, Karen, ~~are symbols~~Pope is supposed to be a symbol of Jesus on earth.  Queen a symbol of England. Our President a symbol of America.

 
That’s where it gets tough~~the Church has had right-wing and left-wing Popes but all of them have written notes of this sort reminding the rich to care for the poor, reminding the rich that the poor have a right to form guilds and unions and reminding the rich of their Christian charitable obligations~~it is Pope’s duty to be a champion of the poor.
 
And, this has always been tough sledding~~in Europe the unions are controlled by the communists~~whereas in America the unions are controlled by the Mafia~~so the Popes have always had a difficult time getting out their message of the need for Christian charity without appearing to be favoring communists or Mafia.
 
As in the earlier question~~I would caution Pope Francis to advocate for the employment of the poor at good jobs and train them to be independent rather than appearing to get tied up in some tired social leveling gambit~~now that would have been creative for Pope to say~~”hey rich guys~~employ some poor guys.”
~~~~~~~~~~~
That said~~it remains to be seen how he develops~~but remember this~~he was elected King by his fellow Princes of the Church and to that extent he is representative of the majority point of view at Rome~~or else he would not have got into office.
