Stocks are nose diving. Billions of dollars of value disappear each day. Its like watching the great plains become a dust bowl.
On one level this could help to explain the sullen mood I'm feeling out there. People are a little sticky and depressed, its like an unconscious virus.
People are raised evaluating the world from a materialistic perspective, sometimes overtly and sometimes unconsciously. America is incredibly class conscious. That's how I was raised, its not something I like, or wanted, or try to perpetuate but early on I was vaccinated in this way. I still search out that which is a little more elevated, a little more transcendent, that's a different story. Most people stick with the materialism, that's the dominant mood and its a worldwide shift.
On a completely different but related topic, I don't like seeing Edwards get the shaft, like he is out of contention. He is not. One misstep by number one and/or two and he's very viable. Even Rudy Giuliani is viewed by the media as viable and alive, and he's won nothing, though he might.
Edwards gets the shaft because corporations fear him. I don't see anybody else out there talking about the actual power of corporations. Nobody else would dare bite the hand that feeds them.
Obama on the other hand has lost all credibility with me for his pro-Reagan talk recently. Reagan wrecked so much of that which had value in this country. He accelerated the vast transfer of wealth from the middle and poor class to the wealthy. Things go downhill from Reagan on up.
We understand why Obama would say these things. He is trying to convert Republicans. Its a political tactic. Good luck with that.
I am about as far from an evangelical right wing anti this and that person but this next article is disconcerting. First animal-human embryo trials to go ahead
Experiments to create Britain’s first embryos that merge human and animal material will begin within months after a Government watchdog today approved two research teams to carry out the controversial work.
Scientists at King’s College London and the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne will now inject human DNA into empty eggs from cows, to create embryos known as cytoplasmic hybrids that are 99.9 per cent human in genetic terms.
They are trying to make this hybrid being seem okay with that 99.9% stuff. Hang on a second, my present understanding is that there is a very slight difference between humans and primates. That 0.1% is a big deal.
Scientists are bored. They are screwing with vegetables, making them richer in nutrients that we probably don't need if we just simply ate well balanced meals. Now they're creating hybrid animal - human beings. They need something/somebody to eat their genetically redesigned vegetables. Nobody else wants to.
