Gold and silver are dropping. They are dropping so that the super rich, who understand the monetary secrets of the world need to control more of it. It all reminds me of the upcoming yearly classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” There is much, much more to this movie than just the obvious. At one point Harry Bailey is talking about the panic which is hitting the banks….the depression era. He says: Can’t you understand what’s happening here? Don’t you see what’s happening? Potter isn’t selling. Potter’s buying! And why? Because we’re panicky and he’s not. That’s why. He’s pickin’ up some bargains. Now, we can get through this thing all right. We’ve, we’ve got to stick together, though. We’ve got to have faith in each other.
But, that’s not happening is it? The media continues to divide us. The political parties keep on dividing us. They make us hate each other. Hate. We cannot stick together and have faith in each other while looking at each other through the haze and fog of hate which is being spread by the ultra-rich owned media. Our politicians are simply pawns of the power of the money behind them. Look at gold and silver, dropping. The rich and super rich will be buying while the rest of the world panics over the instability of a financial system built on “smoke and mirrors”
Today there are sick people who are having serious health problems, perhaps even having surgery. Think of them, and pray for them if you are a praying person.
There are people who are hungry, feed them if you can.
There are people who are burying loved ones, wish them peace.
There are people who are fighting wars, wish them understanding.
For those who hate, wish them love.
For those with who you disagree, try for resolution.
Because all of humanity are passengers on the same ship, and traveling in the same direction. If something happens on the ship, then we all go down together.
Humility is a virtue, and pride cometh before the fall.
It is ironic to me that Columbus has a federal holiday just the same as Lincoln and Martin Luther King. It’s actually worse than that really. We were taught in school how Columbus was a great explorer and hero. In actuality Columbus never thought the world was flat. Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand never thought the world was flat. Columbus was after..wealth…fame, and a lucrative trade route. He stumbled onto a new continent and so.. he got the fame, and he got slaves on his subsequent trips to the Americas in in 1493 to 1496. He had his men cut the noses and ears off of the Lucayan Natives so that these natives, who had been so friendly with him on his first voyage would get the message that he meant business. He demanded their woman as sex slaves for his men, and because he had seen the natives wearing gold necklaces on his first trip…he demanded GOLD. The natives rebelled, and Columbus and his men went to battle with them, and slaughtered them. Many of the bodies of the Indians were fed to dogs…some still alive. Not getting the gold he wanted, he took 500 back to Spain as slaves…only 300 survived the trip. He came back on other trips to find that gold…but it eluded him, falling to subsequent Conquistadors to find it instead.
As a first grader we had a play about Columbus. One of my friends Terry Roberts played Columbus. I played one of the Indians. I’m glad I was on the right side.
Columbus doesn’t deserve a holiday. He deserves for History to be corrected and show him for the bad man he really was.
