Is this yet another … Yawn … Yawn … Oxymoron?
Try it and see what I mean!
Granny’s TimeMachine has suffered a breakdown … James Tobin, Paul Samuelson, John Kenneth Galbraith, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Richard Nixon, Roger Douglas, Friedrich Hayek, Hans-Werner Sinn, Ayse Bugra, Andrew Coyne
How? How to fix things? Abolish unemployment insurance and minimum wage.
Maybe Einstein’s theory of Relativity … Maybe the answer is to be found there …
Einstein? What would he have known about poverty?
They say poverty is relative, don’t they?
Hmmm … Relative to what?
Well besides Einstein was a Jew?
So, look at history … Every time things start getting bad somebody finds some Jew to blame … Or Catholic …
So isn’t it logical that he who takes the blame might also provide the solution? I know … I know … Straws … And I haven’t even begun to talk about camels …
Is truth also relative? Did Einstein have a formula for determining truth?
What about all those crazies … Got to be … Nothing like that could possibly have happened in our fine world … Even to admit to believing it would brand one as suffering some sort of mental breakdown … So how do these urban legends spread?
Truth … Relative … Relatively true or truthfully relative?
Ahh no … This cannot possibly be …
Whooooooh … And then things get really crazy …
Maestro please … Lighten our load
Let’s talk George.
Integrity George? You are asking me what
Well George I guess nobody actually liked what I had to say Continue reading
Today is June 20th … Everyday is special …
today is World Refugee Day
What is a refugee? Why would anyone choose to be a refugee? Are we willing to help refugees? Why? What about people who choose not to be refugees? What about those who wish to remain in their own country? What about those people who wish to live in peace, raise their families, make a decent honest living? Is there a special day for them too?
On days when I feel that this world doesn’t offer me much comfort I always have my virtual home at http://www.u2.com/index/home/
As in most homes, nobody there is perfect, not even Bono … But refugees are always welcome.
Today as I paint my daily cup I will ponder what it is to be a refugee and not have a place to call home.
Since some of my own ancestors were Irish refugees from Ireland I think today’s cup might be orange and white and green.
Today is June 27th.
If I hold the Irish flag up to you what you will see, from your point of view, reading left to right, the way we usually read a flag, is green, white and orange. From my position behind the flag, I might see it as orange, white, green, the flag of the Ivory Coast, unless I read it from right to left. Most confusing but somewhat interesting, this was brought to my attention by a very smart young man.
