TIME ENOUGH

SOCIO-TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT

 Sometimes I wonder

you know when I’m down

just why is The Path

so hard to be found

 Techno 02

The hours of our life on Earth count toward a seemingly infinite, yet inevitable ever changing conclusion

 

Pondering many wonders brought moments of pleasure

realizing there will never be enough time

fascinated by socio-technological advancement

upon the path still looking for a sign 

Fear the unknown

no I don’t dare

I embrace the unknown

my future to snare

By reducing our lives to a number of days

we foster internal procrastination

having looked, thinking there is plenty of time

we squander moments in blind fascination 

Fear the unknown

no don’t you dare

Embrace the unknown

your future to snare

Memorial Day Message

Today we hope you take the time to remember the men and women whose service has allowed us to live our everyday lives. Their dedicated service is what has allowed us to spend time with family, travel with friends, and barbecue with our neighbors free of threat this weekend. Their service allows us to continue to live and speak freely every day.

Whether it is a grandparent, parent, child, or friend, today the NCGOP is taking time to remember their sacrifice and service, and also pay homage to the many who are currently serving at home and overseas.

Ronald Reagan may have said it best, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

This weekend we celebrate the American heroism that has allowed freedom to flourish in the United States of America.

Searching for the One

With the early morning off-shore breeze

on a broad-reach tacking toward shore

thinking on the harbor once promised

and if I really ever wanted more

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

morning finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

Visiting the local breakfast house

sounding for that sympathetic ear

“Hey Sailor, ….another warm-up?”

“Ah … what? Oh … yes dear.”

I watch while they quickly consume

devouring needed calories for the day

witnessing distorted mental pathways

their thought’s exposed and on display

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

morning finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

The open ocean is the only truth

supporting life and building land

sailing far offshore each day alone

was never ever this sailor’s plan

Land-lubbers scurry ‘round their cities

building ant-hills atop one another

the open oceans of Mother Earth

would probably make them shudder

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

morning finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

Upon this Earth, the lady doth exist

my knowledge proves this to be true

but finding that one particular girl

has its’ own way of making me blue

Finding that very special individual

adds to the complexity of the quest

even though I grow much older

I’ll continue to looking for the best

Walking weatherworn docks

boat secured in its’ slip

morning finds me wandering

looking for one to share the trip

The energy and freedom of youth

is definitely wasted on the young

with knowledge only gained in time

can one’s own song be sung

These are the simple thoughts

of a Sailor who’s now grown old

questioning some of the choices

knowing the dream can not be sold

Wandering early in the evening

a friendly Pub to get a sip

another place for me to search

looking for one to share the trip

Gathering courage from Captain Morgan

chased with a shot or two for the smile

telling inebriated ‘tall tales’ of life at sea

a gallant effort going that extra mile

Close moves an interesting companion

a serendipitous moment in time

wondering “…could she really be the one?”

this evening will end sublime

Walking weatherworn docks

she called my boat a ship

I smile and continue

looking for one to share the trip

KEYNESIAN ECONOMICS

Library > Business & Finance > Finance and Investment Dictionary

body of economic thought originated by the British economist and government adviser, John Maynard Keynes (1883–1946), whose landmark work, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, was published in 1935. Writing during the Great Depression, Keynes took issue with the classical economists, like Adam Smith, who believed that the economy worked best when left alone. Keynes believed that active government intervention in the marketplace was the only method of ensuring economic growth and stability. He held essentially that insufficient demand causes unemployment and that excessive demand results in inflation; government should therefore manipulate the level of aggregate demand by adjusting levels of government expenditure and taxation. For example, to avoid depression Keynes advocated increased government spending and easy money, resulting in more investment, higher employment, and increased consumer spending.
Keynesian economics has had great influence on the public economic policies of industrial nations, including the United States.
In the 1980s, however, after repeated recessions, slow growth, and high rates of inflation in the U.S., a contrasting outlook, uniting monetarists and “supply siders,” blamed excessive government intervention for troubles in the economy.

HATE

If you hate America so much

  Most will say, "If you hate America so much, why don’t you just leave?”, when they talk/yell to many of the demonstrators/occupiers, but it’s not America they hate, though they are unable to articulate this – nor are they actually intelligent enough to understand the forces [consciously intended] responsible for producing their anger.

Some hate the fact that they work hard every day, and are not wealthy, while most of them HATE, venting all their fears, mistakes, losses, bad choices, missed opportunity, and just plain bad luck, on anyone other than themselves. This hate is driven by the modern day evolution of ‘greed’, and by all indications, greed is evolving exponentially (even daily).

It’s economics, simple but true. The Protesters are ignorant of economics, in fact, most people are ignorant of economics, but it’s economics that makes this all work. Would be in my lifetime (wishful thinking) a wonderful day indeed, when understanding comes to all, and the emotion ‘anger’ becomes a civil exchange of opposing forces.

A delicate balance of opposing ideas, beliefs, and ideologies, and the melding of same into a cohesive understanding of what to expect from each other, and here is the serendipitous part: Both agreeing, at the conclusion of the intercourse and exchange of positions, in full part, with each other.
