Fire and Ice

Fire and Ice

By Robert Frost

September 30, 2016

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate,
To say that for destruction ice,
Is also great,
And would suffice.

Time After Time

Time After Time

Time passes so slowly if you are unaware of it and so quickly if you are aware of it. ~ Marc Bolan

Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future is not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires. ~ Charles Caleb Colton

Time wastes our bodies and our wits, but we waste time,
so we are quits. ~ Anonymous

Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back. ~ Harvey McKay

Time moves slowly but passes quickly. ~ Alice Walker

Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunderstorm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols. ~ Thomas Mann

Time does not pass, it continues. ~ Marty Rubin

Time. Like a petal in the wind, Flows softly by. As old lives
are taken, New ones begin. A continual chain, Which lasts
throughout eternity. Every life but a minute in time, But
each of equal importance. ~ Cindy Cheney

Time goes, you say, Ah no! Alas, Time stays, we go.
~ Henry Austin Dobson

Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current;
no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another
takes its place, and this too will be swept away. ~ Marcus Aurelius

Indifferent to the affairs of men, time runs out, precise, heedless, exact, and immutable in rhythm. ~ Erwin Sylvanus

The long unmeasured pulse of time moves everything. There is
nothing hidden that it cannot bring to light, nothing once known
that may not become unknown. Nothing is impossible. ~ Sophocles

Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of
other people's thinking. ~ Steve Jobs

The trouble is you think you have time. ~ Buddha

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.
~ Hector Louis Berlioz

My Eternal

My Eternal

By The Fallen Angel
Dark Poetry
September 27, 2016

Rather safe in death than alone in life
Begging life to drain its flow
The eyes of an angel are eyes of tragedy
hours sifting and aging old

A walking on the sands of Egypt
A foot so bare in scorching truth
A thirst that cannot quell
A living hell

Sucked in alive away from light
Agast had forgotten joyful night
Too deep within the desert sands
Too deep the hands, to deep a scourge
The anger of words
Angered at what has become
a life, a strife, a descort

Swallowed by scorpions
that tear away the flesh
They are the poison in the blood
The fear in the heart

The bridge of the Genesis has burned
The terminus bleeds forever
But burns all together separate
Alas the soul but in an empty seed
A shell in need of source
a shell that beckons remorse

Not that there was nothing to live for
But because living was for nothing
It is that living was dying
and death delayed

Tormented by new found wisdoms
in an age of undying sight beyond sight
A paradigm shifting in fright
to never rest the chronos spines
spun in obsession of truths

No more, for the third eye
is merely blind

The signs and wonders of present time
affirm the ineffectuality and folly of life
Alone is the genesis and alone the eternal
The terminus bleeds in endless draw

With love there is pain
and in pain there is decay

No matter the sum ecstacy
Of human kindness
It all but harvests misery

A call for the soul,
A duty from The Lord,

The Demise of Barack Obama

The Demise of Barack Obama

By Expotera
September 22, 2016

Satan:

On September 18, 2016, one of your earthly, "minions" sent me a, "Death Threat" via my personal e-mail.

So Satan, today, September 22, 2016, I am now sending you and all your earthly, "minions" the below message which is now entitled, "The Demise of Barack Obama" Satan, because where I and from where, "We" come from, we fully believe in an, "Eye For An Eye" as well as a, "Tooth For A Tooth" as well as a, "Life For A Life" as well as a, "Soul For A Soul" Satan.

You see Satan, you and some of your earthly followers call and/or refer to yourselves as, "Free Thinkers" but Satan, my mind is truly, "Free" and because of this I am opinionated, and I don't think I'll be swayed, moved, and/or intimidated, because I am too sophisticated to be manipulated, or care about what you care about, because you can't defy nature, no matter how much you scream or shout, Satan.

Because in the words of one of my, "Hero's" Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right” Satan because in the words of yet another one of my, "Hero's" Mahatma Gandhi, "There are people in the world so hungry, that God, cannot appear to them except in the form of a piece of bread" Satan.

Now Satan even though you and your earthly, "minions" continue to deliberately, as well as continue to systematically, "STARVE" billions, upon billions, upon billions of my and our earthly Sisters and Brothers on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis, we just continue to pray daily that our, "Creator" will have mercy on us, and will give us this day’s, or the next day’s provisions, Satan, or give us only our, "Daily Bread" Satan.

Meanwhile Satan and in the words of American Author William Blum, "From 1945 to 2003, the United States attempted to overthrow more than 40 foreign governments and to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist movements fighting against intolerable regimes and in the process, the US bombed some 25 countries, which caused the end of life for several million people and condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair" Satan.

Satan, the shortest verse in the Bible is only, "Two" words, and the shortest sentence written by William Shakespeare is only, "Two" words, and Satan, they can both be explained with both past and present meanings, such as, "Jesus Wept" Satan, because I believe that, "Jesus Wept" simply because they did not know who they had with them, for if they knew what I, and what, "We" know, then they would have known that they were with the, "Creator" of life, Satan.

So inclosing Satan, I and, "We" now present, "The Demise of Barack Obama" Satan, simply because, roses are red, and violets are blue, I and, "We" see your, "death threat" and now, I and we, "Raise" you, by one, by two, by three, or maybe even by, "Four" Satan, as in, "44" or by, "Two" as in, "22" because when it comes to, "Exponential Growth" Satan, anything multiplied by itself, automatically doubles in, "Size" Satan, so your, "death threat" now against me, has now automatically doubled in, "SIZE" and it now also includes all of, "YOU" Satan, so now without any further ado, here are some numbers for your independent and objective, "Review" Satan:

The Demise of Barack Obama =144

The Ancient Sun Gods =72. Saturn is King =72.

I've Been to the Mountaintop =288 (MLK's Last Speech on 4/3)

The President of The United States =156. Dark Lord Saturn =1056. Saturn is Satan =1056.

Planet Saturn =161. The Keeper of Time =161. Saturn The Eye =161. One Hundred Sixty-One =239.

Moonlight =113/314. The Saturn-Moon Matrix =314. Twenty-Two Divided by Seven =314 (22/7=3.14) Obama Demise =227.

Malcolm =154. Lord =154. X =144. Time =144. Saturn Creator-Controller of Earth =144. Malcolm X Is Code For LORD SATURN =142. Hollow Moon =142. Moon is Mind Control Broadcast Station =142.

All Things Will Die

All Things Will Die

By Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809 - 1892)
Dying Matters.org
September 20, 2016

All Things will Die
Clearly the blue river chimes in its flowing
Under my eye;
Warmly and broadly the south winds are blowing
Over the sky.

One after another the white clouds are fleeting;
Every heart this May morning in joyance is beating
Full merrily;
Yet all things must die.

The stream will cease to flow;
The wind will cease to blow;
The clouds will cease to fleet;
The heart will cease to beat;
For all things must die.

All things must die.

Spring will come never more.
O, vanity!
Death waits at the door.

See! our friends are all forsaking
The wine and the merrymaking.

We are call’d-we must go.
Laid low, very low,
In the dark we must lie.

The merry glees are still;
The voice of the bird
Shall no more be heard,
Nor the wind on the hill.

O, misery!

Hark! death is calling
While I speak to ye,
The jaw is falling,
The red cheek paling,
The strong limbs failing;
Ice with the warm blood mixing;
The eyeballs fixing.

Nine times goes the passing bell:
Ye merry souls, farewell.

The old earth
Had a birth,
As all men know,
Long ago.

And the old earth must die.

So let the warm winds range,
And the blue wave beat the shore;
For even and morn
Ye will never see
Thro’ eternity.
All things were born.
Ye will come never more,
For all things must die.

Tony's Life

Tony's Life

By Expotera
September 18, 2016

Satan:

Earlier today I received an e-mail from one of your earthly, "minions" which was simply entitled, "Tony's Life" and Satan this e-mail was obviously a not so veiled, "Threat" now against my life here on this Earth by you and yours and Satan, all I can honestly now say to both you, and yours, is you can't actually, "Take" something from someone, that you actually never, "Gave" to someone.

Therefore when I now, "Die" Satan, I will actually be, "Giving"
my life back to the original, "Creator" of my life, which isn't,
"you" and/or any of your earthly, "minions" of course.

So inclosing Satan, I am only now here to start the, "WAR" with both you and all of your earthly, "minions" Satan, because in short, we, "Expoterians" hate, baby killers, child molesters, land, resource, money, and idea thieves, along with pathological liars, warmongers, war criminals, terrorist, rapist, slave owners, sellouts, blasphemers, cowards, and hypocrites, just to name a, "Few" so, I am now fully expecting to, "Give" my life, in the name of both my non-earthly, "Creator" as well as in the name of my now earthly, "Cause" so here's to, "Tony's Life" Satan, because no matter what now happens to me, I will be seeing you, and all of yours, on the, "Battle Field" as well as on the other side of the, "Rainbow" Satan.

Sincerely,

Tony's Life

An Open Letter To Colin Powell

An Open Letter To Colin Powell

By Expotera
September 14, 2016

Dear Mr. Powell:

My name is Tony Whitcomb and I am a 50 year old African American male and I am now writing this, "Open Letter" to you because it has now been revealed in some of your personal e-mail exchanges which were leaked online yesterday, that you called and personally referred to Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump as an, “international pariah" as well as a, "national disgrace."

Well Mr. Powell, for the record and for what it is now worth, as, "Human Beings" we often call and/or project onto others what we really and what we truly are ourselves, and in your case Mr. Powell, one would have to ignore your monumentally disgraceful Iraq War drumbeating at the United Nations where you as, "Secretary Powell" were, at best, the necons' extremely useful, "Idiot" and, at worst, an, "International Pariah" and might I add a, "War Criminal" as well, just like your former boss, "George Bush" and just like your current fellow, high yellow, "Sellout" friend, Barack Obama.

You see Mr. Powell, you are absolutely positively one of the very last people who is now living both here on this Earth, as well as living here in the United States of America that should be calling and/or referring to Donald J. Trump, or to anyone else for that matter, as a, "National Disgrace" and/or an, "International Pariah" simply because at this point you have both no honor, as well as no credibility, which is why like, "Saddam Hussein" you should just go find some hole to hide in because on November 08, 2016, "The People" will be electing Donald J. Trump as the next, "President" of the United States of America and, "The People" Mr. Powell, will be expecting, "President Elect Trump" to bring you, and all of your fellow, "War Criminals" to justice, Mr. Powell.

So inclosing Mr. Powell, you calling Donald J. Trump name's like an, "international pariah" as well as a, "national disgrace" is kinda like the, "Pot" now trying to call the, "Kettle" black, Mr. Powell, and since you have actually, "Killed" more black and more brown skin people, than Donald J. Trump, ever has, you, Mr. Powell, are both a, "Pariah" as well as a, "Disgrace" to your own, "Creator" to your own, "People" and to your own, "Ancestors" Mr. Powell, and no one needs to read any of this in an, "Email" because it is now written here, as well as written all over your, "Face" Mr. Powell.

Sincerely,

Tony Whitcomb

The Pain You Feel

The Pain You Feel

By Sam Alexander
Adbusters.org
September 9, 2016

I was drifting through cyberspace recently not really absorbing
the words in front of me, when I came across a sentence that
tripped me up, so to speak, and forced me to pay attention.

That sentence read: “The pain you feel is capitalism dying.”

The writer went on to explain that it hurts because we are
inside this dying system, we are inside this unsustainable
form of civilization while it is undermining the life support
system we call Earth, and what is perhaps most unsettling
about this is that it’s not yet clear what comes next; nor is
it obvious that the global problems we face even have smooth,
painless solutions.

The hour is dark and a bright new dawn is not guaranteed.

The words left an impression on me I think because they describe
that strange, existential ache that we probably have all felt at
some time or another, when contemplating how we should live
our lives in a world that seems so tragically off track.

I am referring here to the emotional or what one might even call
the spiritual challenge of living in an age of crisis; of living in an
age when the myths and stories that have shaped and grounded
our cultures, and even our identities have begun to breakdown,
unsettling our sense of purpose and place in a fast-changing
world.

But this crisis of meaning in our culture, if I can put it that way,
presents itself to us, I think, as a heavily disguised but tantalizing
opportunity.

One of the most promising aspects of the biological world we
live in is that the cycles of nature embrace death and decay
as a necessary part of rebirth – as anyone who composts knows
very well – and if we understand this, then we can see that as
the existing form of life deteriorates in the face of environmental
limits, new ways to live will inevitably evolve, and are evolving,
like green shoots peeking out of the widening concrete cracks in
capitalism.

Our challenge is to face this inevitable breakdown with defiant
positivity and set about turning today’s crises into opportunities
to reinvent ourselves, our cultures, and our economies in more
localized, more resilient, more humane ways.

We are, it seems, like tiny microbes inside this massive,
decomposing system, being challenged to work creatively
in our own small ways, building the soil from which a
diversity of new worlds can emerge.

In short, I would say that we are being challenged at this moment
in history to compost capitalism, and in the rich soil of resistance
bring renewal to our task, our collective task, to seed a new Earth
story.

Finland's Basic Income

Finland's Basic Income

Thousands to receive basic income in Finland: A trial that could
lead to the greatest societal transformation of our time

By Demos Helsinki
September 03, 2016

Finland is about to launch an experiment in which a randomly
selected group of 2,000–3,000 citizens already on unemployment
benefits will begin to receive a monthly basic income of 560 euros
(approx. $600).

That basic income will replace their existing benefits.

The amount is the same as the current guaranteed minimum level
of Finnish social security support.

The pilot study, running for two years in 2017-2018, aims to assess
whether basic income can help reduce poverty, social exclusion,
and bureaucracy, while increasing the employment rate.

The Finnish government introduced its legislative bill for the
experiment on 25 August.

Originally, the scope of the basic income experiment was much
more ambitious.

Many experts have criticized the government’s experiment for
its small sample size and for the setup of the trial, which will
be performed within just one experimental condition.

This implies that the experiment can provide insights on only one
issue, namely whether the removal of the disincentives embedded
in social security will encourage those now unemployed to return
to the workforce or not.

Still, the world’s largest national basic income experiment
represents a big leap towards experimental governance, a
transformation that has been given strong emphasis in the
current government program of the Finnish state.

Additionally, the Finnish trial sets the agenda for the future
of universal basic income at large.

Its results will be closely followed by governments worldwide.

The basic income experiment may thus well lead to the greatest
societal transformation of our time.

There are few important things one should understand when
following the headlines on the Finnish basic income experiment:

1. Basic income is the most comprehensive political reform
of our century so far.

There is no other reform in sight that would a) potentially impact
the majority of citizens in any given nation and b) be of such great
importance in as many countries as basic income is today.

Take the global interest in the Finnish experiment as evidence: why
such attention for a trial in a country of just 5 million inhabitants?

Probably because basic income seems to address challenges faced
by all societies across borders.

Currently, basic income is being discussed in earnest in Switzerland
(where a basic income reform was rejected in a referendum in June
2016), in the US (where Y Combinator, an organization known for its
highly successful start-up accelerator, has announced a pilot
experiment for basic income to take place in Oakland, California)
and in the Netherlands (where a basic income experiment will begin
in the city of Utrecht in January 2017).

2. The Finnish basic income experiment is officially referred to as
an incremental reform of the welfare model, not as an indicator of
a complete paradigm shift.

At present, citizens in Finland are entitled to a minimum level
of social security support that is the same as the amount of its
suggested basic income (560€ a month).

In official statements, the basic income experiment is said to aim
to reduce bureaucracy, to unravel disincentives and to decrease
poverty in society.

Government documents do not mention changes in the structure
of work and income, nor do they offer comments on looming
technology-induced unemployment.

Looming explosion of robotics and automatisation is estimated to
take over various jobs in short period of time, resulting in major
changes in the structure of work.

Hence, basic income is seen as an additional element to the
Finnish universal social security system.

Elsewhere, basic income has been envisioned as a solution for
rising inequality, exacerbated by the explosion of robotics and
the automatisation of routine work.

Top politicians in Finland, however, have not explicitly made
these connections.

3. The basic income trial is a part of a larger shift in policy-making.

Over the last two years, Finland has explored possibilities
on how to reform its policy-making functions.

As Forbes put it, Finland, through the Prime Minister’s Office, has
“been pioneering a form of deciding upon public policy where
people actually think through the problems at issue, think about
them, consider solutions, test a few of them, then implement the
best.”

This new form of policy-making has come to be known as,
“co-design” or “co-creation” of policy.

In short, the term refers to the engaging of relevant stakeholders
and citizens in the policy-making process from its early phases
onwards.

As further described in this article, which looks at the policy-
making model that was created by Nordic think tank Demos
Helsinki, more human-centered and experimental governmental
steering can encourage trust and make policy more user-oriented,
targeted and efficient.

The basic income trial will pave the way for about 20 other large-
scale experiments in Finland that have been launched or will be
launched by the country’s ministries in the coming months.

With the preparation work for the basic income trial, the Finns
have spotted a handful of legislative problems that will need to
be tackled in order to foster further experimentation.

Experimental culture in general has encouraged civil servants to
take a permissive attitude to legislation and thus enabled further
innovative experimentation (well demonstrated by this case, where
traffic law was reinterpreted so that it allowed Finland to become
the first country in the world to test driverless vehicles in real
urban environments).

Lastly, preparing the large experiment has already forced the
country to open up the discussion on and solve important issues
in relation to the ethics and practices of experimenting.

All this lays as a solid groundwork for building a forerunner
governance system in the country.
Demos Helsinki has written widely on basic income, and its experts
have been consulted for features in The Guardian, Forbes, Business
Insider, Futurism, and other media.
