Re Israel, Adelson/AIPAC... (to be cont.): "...Kleiman has particularly strong feeling about Ben Cardin, a Democratic Senator from Maryland: “As a young political junkie in Baltimore, I admired Cardin intensely. He was a great state legislator and has been a fine Congressman and Senator. And maybe -- I hope -- his support for the bill is just for show, or for tactical advantage, or because he’s afraid of Sheldon Adelson and the AIPAC goon squad. Surely he must be smart enough to figure out that war with Iran is as much of a losing proposition for Israel -- not for Bibi, but for the Zionist project -- as it is for the U.S.”

Kleiman also makes a specific request of his readers: “Please consider making your voice heard especially strongly if you’re Jewish, or have a Jewish-sounding name.”

Kleiman’s post is evidence of great anxiety on the part of Jews about the manner in which this bill has become a Jewish issue. Liberals are worried that the Jews will be blamed for creating conditions for war if the Iran talks fail. This wouldn’t be the first time Jews are blamed for starting wars. In this case, it is true that Israel and its friends on Capitol Hill are helping lead the charge for these preemptive sanctions. (Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies are also pushing hard, but they seem to push less noisily than Jews.) Of course, there's also a plausible argument to be made that strong sanctions could prevent war -- so far, at least, they have -- but we’ll leave that for another time..."

On my mind this morning - Pavlovian methods & threads intertwining the concerns in Ted Kaczynski's "Unabomber Manifesto" & Aldous Huxley;s "Brave New World" (Los Angeles transplant from the U.K.'s illustrious Huxley family) :

RELATED QUERY:  THE NEW "SOMA"?  SMARTPHONEs, GPS, SOCIAL MEDIA & MARIJUANA? :

"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."

Setting the Crimea/Ukraine record state :    If that's what 93%96% of what Crimeans want - with 86% turnout -- who is the West to begrudge them, particularly after America/UK foreign intervention/invasion fiascos abroad (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia).  Before these World Bank puppets start world war III, I want to help set the record straight on the background of Crimea, with the hope that PDLA, IVAW and my other LA friends can help spread the word and help counter the Obama administration's portrayal of this as Russian aggression, before we get dragged into WW III.  

From what I've read, Crimea was part of Russia for centuries until Krushchev, who had ties to Ukraine by marriage, as well as by prior work and political history, gave it away to Ukraine as a 'gift' in 1954, ostensibly to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Ukraine's merger with tsarist Russia.  

The people of Crimea were not consulted on this decision, and had no say in it.  The population of Crimea was primarily Russian at that time, and still is (by about three to one, from what I've read).  When the government of Ukraine was recently overthrown, the new regime announced that the official language of Crimea would no longer be Russian, and the people there would not be allowed to speak their own language any more!  How would this make any of us feel if it were done here?  I know what my reaction would be.  

Now Crimea, essentially an autonomous, independent territory until these recent events, is holding a referendum to see what the people there want to do. 
Western governments, in bed with the IMF trying to get their fingers into this pie, are refusing to recognize this referendum, -even calling it 'illegal'.  The will of the people to determine their own future is being called 'illegal' by the governments of the 'free world'.  Nice.

Social Engineering & girls/boys' toys  Lego, Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbrow Brite, CandyLand, etc. - 1981 vs. 2014. Media is everything. Shapes what we do. What we value. How we think/reflect & analyze (or choose not to). Thought for the day -- See and witness advertising trends & the hyper-sexualization of American girls' toys. Future topic: militarization of American/Western boys' toys (videogames, Call of Duty, etc.) :
