this is an AWFUL fire... made by DROUGHT. why doesn't California start to desalinate sea water to provide ample fresh water to irrigate the state? it is said to be too expensive! but if they began doing it, like any new project, moderations would evolve to make it cheaper.
an australian man invented a desalination machine that desalinates ocean water (kinda obvious as a NEED, for aussie, a whole continent surrounded by sea water, huh?), cheaply. it works. so why doesn't california use that?
i'm so amazed at this technological age. it has created a depression that is mostly transparent, because there are just barely enough social services and emergency food stamps for our own american citizens, when food is thrown out constantly. THERE IS PLENTY OF FOOD IN OUR COUNTRY! and the government also pays farmers not to grow crops to control prices! in these times, that should not be done. we should take care of those living in poverty!
although the fires burn where crops could grow, i tell ya, those food stamps ain't worth much, with today's food prices! how often do you see food for sale in your grocery store that is always $3.00 plus? constantly. a single person in Illinois that lives on a grand per month is not able to purchase protein: i am talking of buying--once a month, one item of something like a package of ground beef, or chicken, not peanut butter! peanuts are not a full protein. you need MEAT. read THE OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA.
we don't see unemployed men in lines to get a cup of soup. those men, those films made showing them in long lines since they were unemployed en masse after the 1929 crash of the stock market, is going on right now, but you do not SEE it.
what will we do about all the unemployed thanks to the quickly created (so fast!) Era of the Computer? did we have enough time to evolve into it? enough time to understand the systems. gee, i have a high degree in IT, but now that we are wireless, things are happening so fast that even i cannot keep track of the changes, therefore, i am not evolving into them.
i worry about so many things going on today, children having children, working away with only a 6 week paid break to bond with their newborn babies. the most important time of your life happened between the ages of zero to three. mothers should AT LEAST be given paid leave for those years, so that the love they give to their babies then builds up the foundation that will carry them through their entire life. well, look at our society. it's all "anything goes." i would not want to make a baby now. it's scary.
it is scary that an unemployed person living on $1,000/MONTH gets $113 a MONTH to purchase FOOD. (they are not allowed to pay for a pre-made food such as a rotissere chicken with their food stamps. why? they are exhausted from poverty. poverty sucks. why can't they take home a pre-made chicken? why must they cook all their food themselves in their depressed state of mind? it makes no sense.
ron paul, a republican, but an MD, conservative, a capitalist (i am one: isn't it fair that you should profit by your hard work? why is america headed toward "socialism" so wanted by far left liberals, which will become communism? communism always fails. so then, RON PAUL SAID THIS: well, if a person truly is in need of government assistance to LIVE, then, we, the people that have money enough to pay taxes, should help them. you do not see many GOP politicians offering help to those in need, so you?
we lost the best president we could have had, ron paul. his son is not like him. why didn't people research ron paul. HE understands MONEY: that is why he served our country as a house rep of TX for 21 terms! an honest, good, smart man. sure, a little arrogant, but that wasn't so bad. he would have pulled us out of our SEVENTEEN TRILLION deficit if he were the president for 8 years. what does obama do to care for the hidden poor?
what would hitlary benghazi clinton do about the sad state of affairs of we, the people? nothing. she is so dirty that it is really sad that she will probably become our next president (it is so politically correct today, to elect a WHITE woman for prez--one with darker skin--it is predicted that the wife of the current King will be the thing to do, to elect as the president in times to come...).
political correctness is one of the things that has created the "anything is okay" attitude where proper deportment, manners, ethics, and high standards in the way we treat others are a thing in the distant past. many people are downright MEAN. that's okay too. you see what i am talking about? if you live in a large city like chicago, you have seen evidence, much of it, in the news.
well, i am one tired disabled senior citizen that went shopping to that grocery store, crowded with angry people, so nervous to get out of there, for today is sunday. when they return to work tomorrow, it will be expected that they can and should do the work that they would have done saturday and sunday, but where is the TIME? what is wrong with the supervisors? THEY can't make up for work not done on days off the job!
time is our most precious commodity. that is the quote i made up based on an interesting sentence contained in real estate contracts. i thought and thought about TIME. there simply is no time to kill, but only to love.
may you feel love all about you. may you have good health and experience the wonders of life on our earth, everywhere you walk (except in the wild fires that COULD BE conquered by resolving the drought that causes them and makes them spread, making for so much destruction. when will it become politically correct to desalinate water from the oceans to provide a ton of water? to IRRIGATE dry land... so that all the creatures that are links in the food chain can repopulate themselves, alive and well, doing what they do--ask yourself: "am i for or against protecting our wild life? for it supports YOU, in that when they are destroyed by fire, it upsets the food chain that is supposed to feed SEVEN AND ONE HALF people that live on this planet: we have never had so many people alive on earth... think about that).
good night and good dreams to you. what i did for myself, when i was in so much pain from shopping, was to take a drive on lake shore drive, such a pretty road that runs along the beautiful great lake called lake michigan. i do not know if i will move. the lake is part of me. i lived so close to the lake as a kid. what a great childhood i had! i wish that all children had it. i worry. what i witness is not good. but that drive was a cure for my tired and previously nervous (in the crowded store) condition. i'm glad i gave it to myself.
don't forget: gift yourself when you need it. be well. ta ta for now. many smiles to you.
