"This is not my house, this is not my beautiful wife...." Talking Heads

The Global Outrage of an Educated Man.....vol.98
Dire signs and ominous sounds come muttering to us through horrific job reports, local corporate buyouts(Best Buy), and endless wars, frustration and humanitarian crises in the Gaza strip (Israel once funded HAMAS to fight the Arafat led PLO, sounds familiar like the US funding IRAQ to fight IRAN) where the meek are not inheriting the earth, only bloodshed and the loss of whole families. The Happy Holiday shopping and relative greeting season has given way to grim forecasts, limited possibilities and mounting national debt. But, there may be a silver lining in all of this. Hear me out people. Maybe the Global Financial Crisis was necessary as a means for a world shift in consciousness, from the material to focusing on the immaterial, from the self to the whole. History has shown that revolutions only occur when the people find themselves so downtrodden that they will take it no more, and only then will they demand action and results. These may just be the birth pangs of a new global awakening. The poles are shifting. The playing field is being leveled and maybe, just maybe, our aspirations for what is necessary, for what is truly important like good will towards others, no matter their religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality or social standing will rise above the unimportant complacency of what is not needed, only desired because of it's the relative ease of past tradition. 
On December 21st, 2012 an occurrence that only occurs once every 25,800 years will take place. The Earth will be in exact alignment with the Sun and the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, which scientist's have found has a black hole in the center. What does it all mean? Where are we headed? Am I just crazy, or did I forget to take my meds? I will say this, if it comes and goes and nothing happens, I will be the first to admit that I was wrong and I apologize, or maybe you'll just want a place on the Ark that I'm going to have to build. Ha. Like the Beach Boys sang,"God only knows".
Until next time, open arms and open minds.
