“Neighbor”, the President insists, is not only a geographical state but a moral condition. I assume that he has been making public “deposits” of sentiment (capital) – here and abroad - to pay forward (will purchase) public “goods” from which, I think, we will profit.

Ascetic’s vision…?

We cannot resolve centuries old disputes, but we can begin to fix the lands and peoples we have broken. The young of the middle-east and Africa deserve a light at the end of the tunnel. A statute of limitations on West Bank ‘squatter’s rights’ litigation commensurate with repair of free access and integrations of all popular sectors according to internationally accepted standards, under review by both religious and secular committees, will be applied to each hectare of disputed border territory, as will been agreed upon by a date certain.

Attention… Politics in Progress! Please keep your libertarianism to yourself. Honest conservative prudence is welcome. Liberal/abundant opportunity/access to resources (ergo modern middle class) and fair legal redress (regulation/protections) expressed strongly (popular sentiment) and compromise is insisted upon here

Complex but not complicated…

ü Living wage

ü Equal pay

ü Marriage equality

ü Family leave insurance and paid parenting leave-time

ü Health care exchanges (cost controls) and provider competition (no fixed drug pricing)

ü Infrastructure “jobs” banking/lending/incentives

ü De- subsidization of mega-industries, drawback/disadvantage of financial criminality (punishment)

ü Financial transaction fees (bubble poppers)

ü Closure or re-filing of ‘war crimes’ indictments for Iraq occupation (including unprepared VA institution against returning/retiring sector of young professionals?)

ü De-droning of CIA and careful oversight of DOD drone assets

ü Ecol-organic (sustainable) energy production and metro-political planning

“How am I doing” replaces narrative “what have/will I do” because of shrinking evaluative life-timing that telecom has caught so nearly up to “real time”, I fear. Salience, relevance, prominence, aggregation and expectation/translation (forecast) of ideals are stunted in time while augmented/reinforced by techni-cohesion of the complex (unstable) factions, I guess – but, I’d have to check my twitter account and e-mail to be sure

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
