It;s All About an End of an Error Thing

Dear America,

"Markets will rise and fall, 
but this is the United States of America...
No matter what some agency may say, 
we've always been 
and always will be 
a triple-A country." 

President Obama


Civilizations will rise and fall, but this is the United States of America...No matter what I have said in the past, we've always been and always will be a AAA country and exceptional in every way...now give me back my credit rating.

According to Ben Feller, an AP White House Correspondent, "S&P officials said that five countries including Canada and Australia have lost their AAA ratings from S&P and then regained them. The shortest time that it took a country to regain an AAA rating was nine years and the longest time was 18 years."

Can you just imagine it? going another nine years operating under a veil of rocky credibility, questionable fiscal accountability, wanton corruption, and the continuation of political divide reaching polarities of extremities so far and wide we quite possibly simply fall down and go boom?

Can you just imagine it? going another eighteen years before, with certainty now, falling down and go boom?

This snippet in time exemplifies every sound principle, every minute detail of the separation of powers, every fine glimmer of reason which decidedly mounted our foundation upon austerity, humility, and conservative ideals in the first place; the founders purposely rested the general welfare upon the individual to hold to the universal values and principles broadly accepted as Natural Law in order to protect us.

And with good reason too, right?  The great responsibility and duty to stand guard and stand up to the fall of man fell to each and every one of us to uphold. 

Human error alert, human error alert...

It wasn't long ago that I was being, for lack of better word, schooled by someone in my family circle. In a nutshell, this was the approach:

“liberals tend to evolve their beliefs and their ideas based more on “lived experiences” than established family/religious/ideological traditions.” [that would be a direct attack against my position as a conservative, just to clue you in]

And by the way, this is one of the 'lighter' lessons, having arrived at this left brain common sense through their personal experiences of course.

The thing is, whether we are knee deep simply into our own little microcosm of humanity, or attempt to be in relationship in the macro, the same dynamic seems to be upon us -- overwhelming us with animosity and a life long separation driven by differences, rather than our commonalities of humanity,  namely, the good things which have the power to carry us in the bad times and keep us tied together united celebrating our good.

The common good was the driving force of our foundation in the past, while it is the fundamental solution to a happy future.

At the risk of repeating thoughts of blogs past -- just how can we expect our government to be able to solve monumental issues that have been building up for years, uncomfortably amplified during the holidays, while undermining the opportunity we have before us to really learn, grow, prosper, and move on into the future with sweetness and light, when just across our own kitchen table sits the same destructive forces?

I mean, my God, just keeping aligned with embracing a simple law of civility seems beyond reach; believing we live and breathe and dynamically function as part of one big American family, respective of our inherent motto 'e pluribus unum', if the times tell us anything at all, we can fuggetaboutit.

The lines have been drawn, or decided for us.  This is good.  This is evil.  Done. [if only in our own minds]

We can't operate and progress happily, merrily, jovially under the weight of this family code.

Just look at London. Here's just one voice explaining it:

"This is the uprising of the working class. We're redistributing the wealth," said Bryn Phillips, a 28-year-old self-described anarchist, as young people emerged from the store with chocolate bars and ice cream cones.

Phillips claimed rioters were motivated by distrust of the police, and drew a link between the rage on London's street and insurgent right-wing politics in the United States. "In America you have the tea party, in England you've got this," he said.

That, a direct quote out of an AP/London article describing 'on a 3rd day'.

This is London circa 2011 [yes, just like Greece, the fall back method of choice to solve societal corruptions large and small] and it is coming to America.

If you think we are immune just remember Wisconsin just a few months back; remember Arizona a year ago; and then recollect Cairo and just remember the power to the people celebrating the so-called, peaceful 'Arab Spring' -- the same one responsible for the violent attack, I mean rape, of an American reporter within their midst who simply was there to record a slice of history.

Chaos is the new civility.

And by the way Bryn, anarchist-in-chief of the hour, you, sir, are no Tea Party equivalent.  DO you see ANYONE from the Tea Party using violence as a means for change?  DO you see ANYONE from the Tea Party leaving so much as a paper cup behind, let alone a trail of riotous devastation against innocent people and commercial enterprises?

I wrote down a comment made on a story a couple of days ago -- my apologies for neither remembering the story or the tag name of it's origin.  I do, however, remember I was surfing stories on The Daily Caller, if that helps at all, probably not, whatever.  But this is what I scratched out and placed in a prominent place for future pickings:

don't learn, they "feel."  
And since it always feels better 
to want an earthly paradise, 
they never let rationality or experience 
get in their way."

The means to an end seems of little concern, trivial, even if it may be highly uncivil, harmful, destructive, violent, and divisive in every way; and goes the same if whether or not it comes via covert ops [by example through the upper echelon operatives of this administration] or straight up [as in the riots of London].

Our founding fathers got it right for just so many reasons!

The building of our America upon universal truths centering upon the power of the INDIVIDUAL, of self-reliance, resting in a limited government in every way, and relying upon the RULE of LAW to decide in absolutes and above all protecting us from ourselves explains everything -- in this moment reflective of the life we have made for ourselves.

The founders saw this coming and gave it their best shot to align all future generations with proven statutes of civility, of lawfulness, of honor, of credibility, of accountability, of integrity, of faith, of hope, of charity.

IT IS NOT THE LAWS FAULT that we are in this mess; it is the people's fault.  [and by all appearances, it would seem to be true that only the Tea Party recognizes this profound grasp of the oncoming great fall of human nature, of man, of civilization as we know it in America going on right now... maybe even right down a street near you]

"I predict future happiness 
for Americans 
if they can prevent the government 
from wasting the labors of the people 
under the pretense 
of taking care of them."  

Thomas Jefferson


and also said, circa 1802:
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."  j...ah this girl just loves you Tommy boy...

but oops we did it again.

Austerity measures are coming to America -- whether we choose to see it or not, whether we agree with it or not.  For richer or for poorer.  In sickness and in health.

While here we are, deep into the aftermath of the S & P downgrade fiddling with our daily experience in both the micro and the macro -- with the anti-austerity revolutions raging far and wide -- THIS is our new reality.  We may not be seeing it yet just down the street, but it is coming.

The S & P cited the brutal, and sometimes juvenile, divide between the parties as part and parcel of their decision.  The way I look at it, it was kind of like a father sounding off from the head of the table saying, 'knock it off.'  The arguing about nothing and everything -- and anything but the truth -- was getting to him.

You know it's not like we didn't see this S & P thing coming...I mean, c'mon, they have been sounding off about this -- in the company of other credit rating agencies to boot -- for months now; it was as if months ago, the S & P told the president and this administration, 'don't call my bluff.'

well oopsy-daisy and london bridges falling down.

Make it a Good Day, G
