Is “the end” near?

Hello. October here in the northern hemisphere. The heat of summer is receding and winter’s cold is prepared to wrap its frigid fingers around the human herd huddled in their hovels.

The Ebola virus has entered the USA and a caretaker for one of the infected has become infected from the patient.

A message board at one of the Web sites I frequent offered a question:

.

“Can virus be used as war weapons?”

What is the future of the USA?

.

.

Placed upon a Washington Post comment section following an article about the popularity of Congress.

.

The embers of Revolutionary War Two are fanned constantly by the unrepairable farce that is the USA federal government. The unholy alliance between BIG business and BIG government is allowing the elites and their systems to handily win the ongoing class war.

I fear the only way to save the USA is to destroy the old systems, including the federal government and the monolithic corporations and put a new set of Founders to start anew.

The existing Constitution is a good bedrock but the multitude of elite owned, created and lackey operated systems have created a nation of serfs indoctrinated by the most effective propaganda systems ever created into believing that as things are is correct and proper.

The military will be needed to back the freedom fighters going up against tyranny that possess the wealth and power to destroy entire countries. I fear the elites would willingly murder millions of good, decent folks to preserve their huge scam,

The future is unknown to us but if trends continue as they have will the growing oligarchy-plutocracy become so embedded it will never be torn down so that freedom and fairness can spread across the once-sovereign USA lorded over by greed and power lust where profit is the prophet?

Advantages of Wealth

.

“The first million is tough. The rest of the millions comes easy.”

That is close enough to the quote I read long ago.  As us common folks struggle to grab enough wealth to live at a day-to-day level some folks do better for various reasons.

Like math… “economics is hard” so I avoid the complicated parts. Everybody I have talked to understands there is legitimate wealth inequality and there is no anger about that. However, it seems that too much of the wealth disparity is achieved by methods created by the wealthy and thus powerful people of the planet.

The advantage for the wealthy extend to all parts of life. That includes how you are treated by police, the courts, other people and, perhaps most importantly, others with a lot to enormous amounts of wealth.

Decades Ago Way Over There

Another infrequent memory brought to life after viewing the story below I placed on a message board nine years ago and just found again accidently while Web wandering:

The typhoon was coming from the south. Sortie the fleet was the order of the day. Off we went. Every ship in Subic Bay headed for the relative safety of the open sea. We kicked the old Scuzzy Scho in the butt and headed north, hoping to outrun and evade the approaching storm.

Disjointed Written Ramblings

Hello human herd.  I do not know you but if you are a decent person I hope that all is well for you and yours.  For the hooligans and scumbags and ne’er-do-wells engaged in anti-social activities… well, I hope that karma thing plops atop your presence and smothers you with whatever you deserve.

Wandering the Find-a-Grave Web site I found the following:

.

Obituary February 4, 1897 Blount county Newspaper.

“Uncle Billy Burnum died at his home neat Chepultepec last Friday. Mr. Burnum was one of the oldest citizens of the county being in his 85th year. Up to a few days before his death he seemed to be in perfect health and got about like a young man. He was a good old man and highly respected by all who knew him. One by one the old landmarks are passing away.”

.

.

That is a nice way to be remembered.  Well, at least by the one doing the writing.  There could be others who were glad he was dead and gone but that possibility is tossed in because I am the dark cloud by nature,  surrounding the silver lining, the Disgruntled Old Coot (DOC).

Some folks would label me a realist but I prefer DOC.  In this instance I prefer to stick with what was written about the fellow… that he was a decent fellow.

If you want you can cross the miles and visit Billy Burnums’ current place on the Web and view his Earthly residing spot:

Wandering the Web I seek information, facts, opinions, ideas, attitudes… the many varied aspects of humans interacting with everything clustered upon this planet.

Our minute speck of stuff embedded in a huge universe.

From a different viewpoint we are a huge speck made up of innumerable tiny pieces such as atoms and all the even tinier pieces that join together to create atoms.
