Saturday Morning....


I don't have alot of good news to offer this rainy Saturday...There is Burma that is still suffering Cyclone Damage, and over 2 million facing homelessness, and thousands in need , and the Military has continued to not allow AID Teams in. And then in China, thousands still missing, millions displaced and homeless, and Now this AM they are evacuating thousands of refugees due to Dams about to burst.In China the Government and Military are aiding the people as they flee destroyed villages, and working with Other AID Entities. The numbers from both Catastrophes are staggering. Both of these Disasters will continue to have consequential damage, as they face disease and starvation. Many NGO's and UN are still trying to assess if AID is getting to the people, as their teams are not allowed in.

I would ask that maybe people light a candle today and send thoughts of compassion to these people.....or Incense. Many of the people in both these regions are Buddhist and they will not even be able to grieve or bury or cremate their dead. The families in China,they are only allowed to have one child, and if their Only child has died at a State School, they have lost their Future. Very sad.

Posts below, vary from issues of Huckabee Stupidity to Racism to a Sinkhole to a Zen Garden...Scroll down.

I will be back later today after making calls to Kentucky, ( and I hope they go better than the calls last weekend).If you want to email me you can enigma4ever@earthlink ( esp. if anyone finds the Gator photo). Also if you want to go to the Lighter side of Life, THE ENIGMA CAFE over on the blogroll has some more ZEN postings, music and art....even some humor. Have a good Saturday.

The Borg Queen in Oregon defying calls and pleas by superdelegates and party elders, continuing her campaign of playing with knives to try and cut up Obama and damage him in the minds of voters in the General Election.

The woman is a monster, a snake, a screaming mimi, who clearly thinks she can wound him sufficiently so that McCain is elected president in November and then she can return in 2012 and run against him.

Anyone who thinks Hillary Clinton and her cabal of crazy paleo feminist supporters will hear the cry to rally around Obama in the General Election are sorely mistaken. Her base is truly insane.

On Friday, NARAL (a group I know very well and hold in great respect) told me they are receiving death threats from Hillbots angry with them for endorsing Barack Obama and not the Borg Queen.

I had doubts about Obama's electability in this country because of the institutionalized racism that still exists (think West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio) but I think his real challenge will be winning over these lunatic, white women, many of whom are donating to anti-Obama 527s in record numbers.

Such deep sorrow for those suffering the natural disasters. The world comunity wants to help Burma, but the Junta gvmnt resists the help. Timing is everything & a new major storm is brewing & heading their way. I took your advice & am burning a candle & lit incense- while I listen to the Zen garden music you posted. When I start to think about the suffering there, it brings me to tears.
Whole villages were wiped out. Survivors are struggling on, in harsh conditions. Safe drinking water must be a huge issue.
Why would a government refuse free international aid in such a dire situation? I have heard 42,000 have died.
I don't understand, why would they not want to save their own country & people?
I can't make sense out of their actions.


Thankfully, China is accepting help, but as you said, the loss of your only child would be devistating.

My prayer & hope is that the open the door to aid, affirm life, minimize the suffering.
May they heal & allow what is good in humanity to come forth & help each other in this time of great need, and loss.

42,000 is what they had admitted too, the Military...Asian papers report it has been much higher....and that they bodies are being thrown in the waters by the military because they have no way to bury....Some have been found missing fingers and ears, as jewelery has been removed...That they would also leave the bodies in the waters , to make others ill, and provide no shelter or help and then also stealing the food shipments...it is beyond evil....I don't understand WHY the UN does not take Emergency measures...

China...so sad...but atlest you do see people helping each other and the military there with equipment etc...NPR had some amazing reports this am on CNN , with live interviews and footage ( 6am) I hope they rerun it...to find out that they now are facing such Huge floods if the dams break...I have no words...

thank you ...namaste...I have been burning incense all week for both places..as they are not able to...nine sticks....

Christopher:

enigma there is a picture of the Gator Here
It's funny but when I punched in gator at Lake Daisetta Divajood's story was at the top of the page. Anyway it is pretty horrific what is happening in China and Myanmar and you know me being a realist I'll shut up. I do find it appalling the the Junta is taking the food and supplies and giving survivors rotting food. You are busy just take care!

Fortunately, for the people of Oregon, the Borg Queen hopped on her broom and flew off for Kentucky, where she's immediately began spreading her hate and bashed and dissed Obama.

She just can't resist the urge to attack him. Even though she knows her campaign will be over in less than 4 weeks, she can't control her mouth and the words the flow from it.

Christopher:
I called Kentucky today...much better than West Va...and I called oregon a few weeks ago..He is doing okay..and people seem impressed that he stood up to Bush...

RFK. One of the greats. JFK, too.

I want Obama to be another JFK.

enigma4ever said...

Hey Christopher...
I think Obama has the qualities of Greatness .....

the Interesting thing...He has qualities of JFK and RFK...his books and how he talk really reminds RFk.....some of his policy reminds me of JFK..and some of his other talks...the way he says " I will march with you" that is alot what MLK said - that he was with us, would always march with us- NOT Lead us...BUT march with us...

It's a really good article...Wavy Gravy ( goind for the whole sixties experince....and I have sandalwood incense burning....
