… customed chords

“Business Acumen”. Once upon a time… The PEOPLES that came to this part of the world WERE “the TIRED, the POOR, those TEAMING to be FREE”. Now, as their “great-great” grand-children have “winnowed” a life from the wallet pockets of whomever they can the cry of “foul” from their lips is the bloody finger pointing at THE VICTIM. The “middle” CLASS,  (“ Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. Class, [http://www.exploringnature.org/db/detail.php?dbID=87&detID=1192], being the “basic” identification.), is/ HAS gone the way of the DODO, the uniquenesses of what “they” were IS GONE. The year that Corporations became a “PERSON” meant that a ‘smart’ crook could hide within / behind a LAW that disables the “common good” of BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE for one’s “LIFE”, (the essentials: good food, shelter,etc.), without having to make the day’s wages be used within the ‘HOUR’.

The Jobs report told the “BEIGE FALSEHOOD” of folk having the ability to make the smaller parts of “THE DREAM” be able to be assembled, especially after the, STILL being PROSECUTED, banking community turning to newer ways of “BARNUMIZATION”. Small businesses have been bagging and, tagging the newly “aged” by using the “old-style” work ETHIC cloned to the dollar on a fishing line way of work place assignment, ( 40+ miles: to/ from.), for a (slightly) less than equal of weekly hours. (And, “WE” wonder why people live like “they” do.)

I do believe that the time HAS arrived that “OF THE… BY THE… FOR THE” is overdue. AND, that “WE” who CAN, SHOULD “enable” the “market” to provide BETTER FARE/ FAIR.

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

please do pardon
as I pass you by
I’m not affording simple
even as your “failure”
I’m past your “college” try
no matter how
the change of “right”
your gaslight is too dim
protecting that which
is more than sham
there’s no support for glitch
the “family” business
but your cirque
to swallow more than sword
how much longer
will you weave these yarns
until YOUR neck encounters
falsehood’s customed chords

CONGRATULATIONS (!!!!!!) to the reporter that wrote the NEW YORK TIMES article about General Mills’ attempt to BROAD SIDE a CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO SUE.

(http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/17/business/when-liking-a-brand-online-voids-the-right-to-sue.html?_r=0)

With the SAT being DUMBED someone within the legal ranks of the Minnesota FOOD provider “thought” that a PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKING of the DUE PROCESS given by FEDERAL LAW would be “EASILY” foundationed within the (ANTI-) SOCIAL MEDIA of the CORPORATE BULLY.

THIS ACTION ALONE PROVES that the MOST OBSCURE of WORDS HAS the NEED to be LEARNED… AS QUICKLY as POSSIBLE! Not too long ago there was mention that “some” parents of elementary school age students HAD asked that their children be allowed to write their class, (ENGLISH, the one that is “required” by a lot that can’t spell themselves.), ESSAY assignments “in Telephone TEXT form”. (!!!) Add that too many of the CLASSICS are now available as AUDIO-BOOKS… SOMEONE ELSE DECIPHERS the spelling for them. AMAZON is a major outlet.

The “EDGE” is being HONED. SOME by LAZINESS, MOST BY DESIGN and PLANNING.

The SADDER part of MY writing this post is that as a “person OF colour” it WASN’T so long ago that WE were KEPT from learning to read… JUST FOR THE ABOVE SIGHTED REASON.

It’s not so “glossable” when the tools of destruction becomes one’s OWN TARGETED SYSTEM.
IS IT?

As I’ve retorted MANY TIMES…

The cost of Life’s FREEDOM EQUALS… PAYING ATTENTION !!!

 





… the best “code” trace

1 01 2014

The ARROGANCE of those that can count without their fingers or, read with unmoving lips, is a show of just how much has been lost of “OUR” individual traits handed through the “slow” process of the NECESSITIES of LEARNING EXPERIENCES. ONE CANNOT be “SURE” of something that HAS NOT had the PROVEN events of testing through TIME and TRIAL, “trial” being the NEGATIVE bombardments of usage and IMPLEMENTATION VARIANCES. The newest (RICH KIDS) on the block are those that HAVE found that ” the more bread one has, the less “crap”  they have to taste to ingest.”  Mattering nothing, to them, that the trail of destruction will have enough entropic momentum to intersect the path that THEY believe will keep them “above” the “whatever”. The sadder fact IS that the “MONEY-CHANGERS”, ( a very proper term in that these folk are allowed to create a “VALUE” ALCHEMY that excludes REAL VALUES of ‘common’ exchange.), stand behind BORROWED CURTAINS practicing their “fiscal emperor’s attire” while their investors pretend to not notice.

I’m very tired. Even though it’s only been a three day week I HAVEN’T “had” to awaken at 5 a.m. for over thirty years. The problem(s) of “WHAT”  WE are becoming is none too dissimilar than the ARISTOCRACY and Monarchical ‘stupidities’ that chased so many TO this Nation. I’m NOT going to write much of anything, I’ll just direct you to A  couple of articles that “KIND’A” bring the totality of “WRONG ” into sharper FOCUS.

Time TO SHATTER The Bridge’s Crystal

(http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/23/business/international/us-retailers-decline-to-aid-factory-victims-in-bangladesh.html?_r=0)

When YOU’RE  OUT THERE getting ready to run some NEOPHYTE “shopper”  from the glassed entryway at YOUR local WALMART, SEARS OR CHILDREN’S PALACE THIS “BLACK FRIDAY”, (to get your ‘little one’ that DEEPLY DIS-COUNTED Christ’s Mass frock or toy.), I think that THERE ISsomething” that YOU SHOULD KNOW about HOW those items ‘achieved’ their INSANE LOW price. I won’t go into detail, that IS covered by the capable journalists at the NEW YORK TIMES . The crux of this post is to inform you of ANOTHER EXAMPLE of how RIDICULOUSLY GREEDY and CALLOUS the AMERICAN CORPORATE “MINE”-SET is affecting OTHER types of GLOBAL RELATIONSHIPS.

There have been some “fairly” DEVASTATING factory fires in the nation of Bangladesh. As YOU READ (!?) that 112 workers were killed at the TAZREEN factory blaze, while 1200 SOULS departed at the RANA PLAZA fire alone. These were UNIONIZED PEOPLE that had CHILDREN, HUSBANDS and WIVES, not counting that these CULTURED Nations ALSO PROVIDE for the OLDER members of THEIR FAMILIES, NOT putting them in NURSING “Facilities”.

The title is about the fact that the MATRIARCH of the WALTON family has taken a LOT of those MILLIONS of DOLLARS and BUILT a [WORLD “CLASS”] repository for display. AN “AUGHT” / ART Museum. I will place this thought within the category of the [“GURLITT” clause]. By REFUSING to “sprinkle” a LITTLE of the LUCRE that HAS made the WALTON KLAN “Just -a-might-more”… than t’others. And “why” the name of CRYSTAL BRIDGES can only be answered if YOU “go and [ASK ALICE]”…WHY She’s ‘ten feet tall’. ( Isn’t the last statement copyrighted?) The PEOPLE of NATIONS that seek to IMPROVE their way of LIFE have MORE to do with MORE than JUST US, and THAT is exactly WHAT they SHOULD BE RECEIVING as a GOOD NEIGHBOR, JUSTICE and COMPASSION, that just happens to make “US ” RICH. But, I guess that “they” live by the motto, “OUT-of-SIGHT, OFF-MY-MIND”  over there in “YER-CANS-ASS”.

Sadly, I’m making light of a DARK situation of INTERNATIONAL COMMERCE. The problem of HOW “WE” as a NATION can BE PART of the “GOOD” that NEEDS to be growing, instead of the fear mongering and …”UPS-MAN-SHIP” that makes the term UGLY AMERICAN that much more TRUE.

rsz_walton_mugshotHere’s to the HOPE that AMERICAN Commercial VENTURES  will begin to LEAD the way in SHOWING the WORLD HOW to conduct “GOOD WILL TOWARDS ‘MEN’.

The THOUGHT of the SEASON is… JUST DON’T SHOP “THERE”.

The LEFT-HANDED Business Proposition

5 11 2013

I have been trying to get some response from Mark Fuller, of WET.

dubai-fountain-620x324I believe that there’s an avenue that this Genius HASN’T tapped…YET. Even though I’m NOT a part of  BRAIN-” TRUNK” of his Company I “COULD” be one of the longest RHIZOMES ever recorded.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

” The IMAGINEERIUM: pOOLS OF mUSIC”

(rung by WET Hammers.)

I can’t remember when the thought first spit-balled my brain. I was standing by a dog peeing on the neighbor’s ‘GIrl with a Dolphin’, ( She said that it was a copy of some famous sculpture in Holland. ) The sunlight made white-gold sparkles when the Spitz’s leg shadow moved for balance against the overcooked Oatmeal, fake stone that the “Super-Store” had ordered for their TWO-Hundred, TWENTY-FIVE “CAUCASIONAL” regioned acres.

My Grand-Father had a few acres of farmed land just inside this monied, little Hovel of a town in the mid-western center of this Country. (The exact topographical integers AREN’T your business.) The streets were, artfully, named for the lifestyle of the time… Morning, South,North and Evening “STREETS”, the church on the town square had a portrait of a relative of one of the past Presidents. Stern old fellow, in fact that may have been his name… first, or last. The property sat over a natural, underground river that gave the house water that gave its gunk to the Limestone that it wandered through to get to us. (Someone got into HUGE trouble for passing off CITY WATER for “NATURAL SPRING” about fifteen years ago. “ALASKAN FALLS” was the counciled “little-white-LIE” that NO-ONE, “as yet” named, has been tried for yet.)
As kids we had squirt-guns galore to rustle up some cool fun during the Summer months. Balloons were the air granades tossed over the corner of the house were ‘SOMEONE’ would always believe that they were clever… well trained by every Hollywood western, or War movie.

The “WHIRLIGIG” type of lawn sprinkler had little ability for artistic expression, at first, until the “‘twist” open / closed, spray radius adjusters were added to the Hardware Store’s arsenal for Homeowners to have a flat, green ‘pasture’ that looked like Scarlett’s front portico’s division between the driveway and the Hitchin’ post. We’d take the old, broke down ones and re-bend the arms, then we’d drill out or put a piece of something to force into the thing and drill it with a smaller hole, so that the water shot farther. All the while finding different combinations to play with the neighbors’ heads and sensibilities.

Getting older, then purchasing a home I often think about doing some of those same things to “CREATE” while doing the mundane acts of “ho-moaner-shi_”.

BUT… one day I was able to “move UP” into an “ABODE”, a place with some real room for a one / one-hundredth of the east wing Garden of the “WHITE HOUSE”. At 100′ by 40′ the area gave me enough room that the “best half” couldn’t say “NO” to the buoyed ‘hood’ she’d married. I went to a site that downloaded a FREE cad “HOME PROJECT” for me to begin with. Mastering that took almost two years of using words forbidden by my Grand-Mother. As the idea became more Honorable than ornery I began the task of sizing an cutting, after scraping the twice-a-month fertilized sod from the target site. Digging  a concave into the dirt began the “AHM-HERST ASWAN”. It WAS gonna look “DAM” good. The lining was placed, as the “light-years” lengths of moisture avenues for the “dis-play”…

What I haven’t told you “of” is that I’d included some Wind Chimes, to hang over various sections, thereby being “in the way” of some of the spouts designed. Along with that is that the supports FOR those chimes hid small capillary tubes to SPIN the ‘clappers’ set to revolve inside the various tubing, creating a “bowing” effect. A LOT of work for a kid that would have been LABELED as “one” (to be) “LEFT BEHIND”.

The water bill “isn’t THAT BAD”. And the next stage of development is to light the traveling spouts of water that HAMMERS the chime. I’ll let you know in a few years how the MISS-“US” has dealt with my obsession. The goal is to be able to coordinate the “party” music(s) with the fountain, ( My “Belle”, Michelle has a dream of winning the city “Best Home” contest.), well enough that when either of the ‘spring decide to “JUMP” into ADULTHOOD… and MARRY, that we’ll allow a bizarre “WESTMINSTER / HOLLY-WEIRD background sound-track to the Affaire. Here’s to “days of OLD”.
