Fears of Cyberwar from China; A Marshall Plan for Haiti

A Marshall Plan for Haiti

Gee, didn't I use that exact term a few days ago? Didn't I say it would take a Marshall Plan? Disaster Capitalism. It is more profitable to kill people and take lives than it is to save them. Forget the rhetoric folks. Lay preconceptions aside and just see what's happening here. Perhaps the newcomers, after reading the Marshall Plan story should go back and read one of my best essays ever... It's called Globalcorp.

Here's the Haiti story:
Here's Globalcorp:

And here's a quote from Globalcorp:

"As the human race blows itself into extinction, or destroys the climate, or starves itself to death, the last corporate merger and acquisition will take place. And at the same moment as mankind dies, the CFO of "GlobalCorp" will be shouting, 'Hooray! We did it!'"

Pentagon’s Social Network Becomes Hub for Haiti Relief

"On Monday, Jean Demay, DISA's technical manager for the agency's Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, happened to be at the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Miami preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane. After the earthquake hit on Tuesday, Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system.">

Hi agian,

The oil wells in Haiti might be old but Cuba is just around the corner...

Pakistanis Furious as Power Shortages Grip Nation


“We were already facing the brunt of suicide attacks and bomb explosions and now the government has dropped the bombs of power cuts and natural gas load shedding," said Fazal Karim, an auto rickshaw mechanic.


I read this - and other articles about Haiti - in my warm house after eating a nutritious and very tasty meal with a glass of wine with my family around me.....

As agape wins says “We none of us deserve the comfort we enjoy; Peace,Namaste,Amae.”

Nothing is permanent. Not the relative luxury of my western lifestyle. And (I hope) not the suffering of those who are without it....



gamedog - no offense taken mate!

RanD - glad you are still here after the recent storm. This place would be poorer without you, even if I must admit much of what you say flies over my head. But that is surely my failing, is it not?

I was hoping that once MCR got to rest and chill out a bit after completing his book, his movie, and flying around the country to promote his movie, that he'd want to begin posting in here frequently again. And I'm happy to see that he's back in action in here!

So glad to see this activity, voices I haven't heard in AGGGES!
Andrea Muhrrteyn, glad to see your name in lights!

gamedog said...Agape, is the difference in attitude you highlight not a result of a driven policy of social deprivation?

What? I do not recall the difference in attitude you question, or is it just the general tone of my posts? I will respond.

Potassium Iodide explained from the horses(CDC) mouth,
It's taken to save your LIFE, NOT TAKE IT.
You can find it at a Surplus store, or a Good Health food
Store; it's also taken for a Thyroid condition!

Quote; You should not use table salt as a substitute for KI. Unquote.

We are here to prepare people NOT Exterminate them!

For the ultimate Doom-Gloom listen to Mr Camping, he has time & date;
no escape, you do not have a choice/chance-just roll over!!

A sign at a local florist:
"Vision is the Art of seeing the invisible!"
It's also being able to understand what everyone else sees/is aware of-But ignores or denies. What tells a smart Rat to leave a sinking Ship?

There have been several posts from those who "Got the picture" & got right to work preparing, on their own, without a Teacher or Preacher.
Wherever you are is unique for any number of reasons, primary of
which is the people around you; do you agree/get along, will they assist you or fight you tooth and nail? Should/could you chuck it all, as some have, or is there a reason you feel/are forced to stay put.
Survival can be/should be a Community effort, you can not say show me/teach me; it has to be Help me/I'll Help you--We will both muddle through.
That is what Agape, evolved into Amae is about, sharing not HORDING!

There has always been a Remnant, with planning/sharing you can be part of it; even if you die your work will live on!
If you just try and hide, even if you make it through where do you see yourself?

I am listening to music that I love....the reason? Because I know it won't last.
Someday soon, we will be Haiti, I except that, so I will enjoy what I can when I can.

Paul, Thanks for the high five. You're a prince of woman & man.

Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chavez has reportedly said the Haiti earthquake was caused by a U.S. tectonic weapons test, also being dubbed The Earthquake Weapon.

RanD said...

agape wins, your adage: “We none of us deserve the comfort we enjoy; Peace,Namaste,Amae” indeed speaks a profound and humbling truth, one which both begs & demands that we who are advantaged use our gift to make it better for all.
