Bewitched, Betwixt, Brexit, Bombing Brutality and Alzheimer’s Questions – Headlined by OpEdNews.com

In a world of rising tensions and temps, wisdom suggests, being great is a team sport – for when voter thinking is trumped, a 350 million-dollar a week membership lie – proves you can fool some of the people all of the time, on either side of the pond.

Notwithstanding, Greenspan rerun, what really is the inevitable global consequence of the audacity and austerity of isolationism?  Did Britons equivocate and evaluate or like Americans duped by LBJ’s Gulf of Tonkin lie, simply divide to be conquered?

Did The Great Wall of China limit worldly inroads or preserve ancient treasures?

Did Woodrow Wilson’s Isolationism keep America out of war, or miss the whole point of the Monroe Doctrine from A for Alliances to Z for Zika?

Which still reigns supreme, Queen Victoria’s, a relative on every European throne or John Donne’s No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main?

What launches predictable predictors, if not rabbit foots in the business of emotional pendulums convincing others the future is but the past, in refrain?

Why, with clinched fists, are we so thrilled to be taken for another ride of swerving curves, dips and dodges driven by the international bulls and national bears controlling market profits?

Isn’t seizing logic to ascertain why, a better investment, than faith in Too Big to Fail mysticism?

Shall we be controlled by boisterous roosters crowing, the sky is falling, or bank our 401Ks with higher authority?

Why give Wall Street roulette permission to spin our hearts and minds into the outer limits of sequestration?

Is it our life’s ambition to be added to the call sheet of high-end prostitutes and drug dealers, servicing Wall and K Streets speed-dialers, for Right Wing Corporate puppet masters?

Isn’t focusing on our individual core and global essence, worthy of moments of silence, to wonder, among other things, why they hate us?

Which came first, Middle Class bankruptcies or Bankster bonuses fleeing American taxes?

What exactly is the connecting tissue of our financial gain games?

Does our greatness as nation and people come from an alliance with the inconstant moon or the tie that binds?

The world is far less scary, misleading and doomsday oriented when we control our ability to brake, for knowledge creatively awakens when we trust our silence.

Aren’t we heroic enough to pause all device aberrations:  television blabber, radio screaming and print hell on earth visuals of mass destruction, and step outside the digital maze, to see beyond the marketing prism?

What if, We the People diligently hit pause on all the noise, and instead of acting out, like money-changers in the temples of doom, we cease and desist the buying and selling of souls in international sweat shops, black-op sites and America’s soup kitchens?

If we believe our roots are Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth or we hail from Abraham’s Ishmael, Isaac and Jokshan, remember like the U. S. Constitution, banking laws and stock market regulations, both Quran and Bible were written by old men with big agendas and little gender equality comprehension.

Whether our concept of life’s magnitude embraces Ethiopian 1974 discovery of Lucy or Lucia and her 1917 Portuguese playmates, it’s all caught on camera – and what if the Fatima scoop, in the wake of weather deaths and denial, includes, Global Warming and Climate Change?

Isn’t our intellect more visionary than the rearview mirror reflection of malice aforethought Alan Greenspan, Sarah Isgur Flores Boris Johnson, Trump hate mongering and terrorism, both foreign and domestic?

Can we not instead champion the five million Americans who courageously face Alzheimer’s every day?

Given the chance, listening in silence is our willing incubator for inspiration, where time is not of the essence, but rather the opportunity for knowledge and confirmation of truth – for our greatest Blue Chip stock is wisdom inhaling and exhaling through our Immaculate Heart.

First Father’s Day After Orlando Twins: Terrorism and Guns Headlined on OpEdNews.com Mon 6/20/16

gun violence Pulse Friends & FamilyWe are neither above nor disconnected from nature, but in our survival of the fittest, we leave our children dependent upon earth’s response to our global abuse, from birth to girth.

When did the sanctity of human life become, follow their conscience to off shore accounts for the wealthy and off range point-blank objectives against innocents?  When did obstruction to common sense and praises for assault weapons become sacrosanct, at our expense?

Without a care, robed in inheritance for bear, Wall Street is dressed to kill earth, air and fire while buying water as ware for more man’s inhumanity to man – including parents losing children to NRA’s bottom line bulls-eye plan.

Until we dare to bear witness to our long history of assassination by the limited vision of radicalized conservative genes, and demand life-saving laws vs. maximized magazines – our youth will be heir to what follows record highs of violence inspired hot air imposing drought and blood liens.

Fathered children, in lost embrace, barely able to vocalize through the stagnation of reason, swirl now in an ill wind — focalize on political alliance and parental tears, and when the smoke clears, all that’s left behind is, I can’t breathe during another moment of silence.

In a crowded theatre, school, church, parking lot or anywhere on the world stage of mass murder, we are either the life-line preventing dire human destruction or the choir settling for preaching over yet another preventable bier.

The universe and all of the diverse life within it, has a pulse, and though at its faintest in Congress, whether in Manhattan, the Grand Canyon or water stealing Las Vegas, life’s pulse is palatable until, believing in Wayne LaPierre liar, we find ourselves raising another premature pyre.

In natural ire, nature fires up occupation by human competition, for in the wilderness we are perceived more rapists of, than stewards for, the cathedrals of vanishing loved ones and forests.  We need find our moral roots before being forced to weep again at an altar of slaughter, where lie the targets victimized by the practice of easily exchanging common sense for under-regulated legal mass murder instruments.

For our sandwiched children caught betwixt and between, climate future and potential doctor suture — it is trial by crossfire:  old angry men flame throwing like Grand Dragons dying to burn up what’s left of their haul in little red wagons.  Fearing it’s their Last Hurrah, they try tie-dying America in bigotry and Voter ID, failing to recognize Open Carry is the real outlaw.

Now that those who haven’t the will for gun, earth, fire and water solutions, you Millennials must save yourselves by saving the planet from corporate institutions.  Rented Lobbyists bribing away our political balance and free clean water prove, we lose someone, when principal is abandoned and sowed collusion reaps death upon our daughters and our sons.

  • Affluenza Drunk Driver
  • Rapist Brock Turner
  • Killer of Christina Grimmie
  • Neo-Nazi killer of 41-year-old MP diversity champion, Jo Cox
  • Parents giving 14 -year-old daughter to 51-year-old man
  • The Pulse murderer

We’re not children anymore – so let’s stop letting our past kill our future with the evils of gerrymandering, Citizens United, rape, extreme nationalism and White Supremacists.

Recapture our essence of Out of Many, One and united, stand tall.  For when the 1% discovers it can’t eat money and the rest, seeing the writing on the wall — water is a premium in the hands of corporations – who, then, will be the AR-15 Targets, after all?

Refusing to tip our national definition in the direction of, killer boys with cowboy toys, let’s applaud and emulate the Good Samaritans — doctors, nurses, neighbors, teachers and repentant politicians, who stand against those proving manhood with deadly force — by our loving all Americans, of course.
