Doomsday, really?

There are three million millionaires in the USA that do not pay taxes because their assets are registered in tax paradise “countries” around the globe, many have another citizenship, a great prove of patriotism, no doubts about it.

There are also three million doomsday preppers, they have even a convention, a TV series in NatGeo, websites, facebook and social media pages and a whole industry that provides them with all what they need, costly, ridiculously fashioned and very successful but …..what is a doomsday prepper? A doomsday prepper is a guy, working alone, with friends, with his family, that believes de-facto that in case of a catastrophe the federal/state government will not help him/them to survive any life threatment situation, it can be an earthquake, a cyclone, a hurricane, a tsunami, a nuclear plant explossion, economic crisis, a war of any kind, bio threats, nuclear attacks from other countries, terrorism, comets, asteroids, solar flares, magnetic fields, gamma rays and whatever you can put into your imagination.

The rule of thumb is that you need a supply of food, water, energy, a bunker, hundreds of guns and ammunition (easily there) and training to stop any of their hungry citizens that did not prepare for that, to invade your space to take advantage of what you did to protect your family.

My conclusion is simple, there are out there at least six million guys who do not care about their country, government, society, institutions, marines, armed forces, FBI, CIA, NSA, DEA, fellow citizens, for them God Bless America and The Land of the Free are just a songs they sing on baseball games, the only important people are them!

Global warming, a lost war?

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-03-14/february-smashed-all-time-global-heat-record/724635

Are we loosing the the war against global warming?, yes…. ignorance, apathy and personal interests are winning.

The 6th mass extinction began with the last ice age and now it’s being catalyzed by man on a geometric progression. Honest scientists agree with the evidence so far. Dishonest scientists (there are a bunch who sold their soul to the devil), politicians and big economic powers deny the truth because they can not see beyond their own generation, do not want to see, do not care beyond that. Ignorance and stupidity of the people (who associate dinosaurs to cavemen) help them a lot with their behavior. The results are obvious, when the conveyor belt that regulates the temperature on far north and south of the globe will really slow down, we will have a new ice age, now with 8 to 10 billion people instead of the few millions of 10.000 years ago, with depleted resources of all kind, famine, lack of water, deserted oceans and more. Apocalyptic, yes it is,  but the scientific evidence so far and the projection based on it shows no bright future. How many honest people in the world know about this? Is there a future? Emissions control right now is like a band aid put on a terminal ill patient and since advertising controls the mind of the week, there is no doubt about what will happen.

Man…inhuman?

Man has broken all the schemes in the animal world, all other organisms of all kinds show a behavior based on their strict genetic code that regulates them and Nature takes care to mediate before any alteration on the balance occurs, ensuring the Biological Diversity that has allowed life on Earth shortly after its formation (some 3,000-3,500 million years ago) and the development of advanced life dating back around 500 million years.

The man began to write its own evolutive storyline about 7 million years ago, won the title of Homo sapiens merely some 100,000 back and reached adulthood after the last ice age, 10,000 years ago.

Since then he has been able to bring to extinction countless species of plants and animals by wholesale hunting, poaching or destroying the habitats and biodiversity. Man sets a price on everything, not only to products and services but to land, environment, animals, plants and even human life. Wars are a way to use his animal inherited component to go beyond reason and reach his ultimate goals. Man kills but not to get the kill to eat, man kills to obtain power, kills for money, kills for sex, he even kills for pleasure. The other fellow humans are only worth to the extent that they are useful, cities are important because they focus their chances on economic revenues, now cities are almost miniature polluted countries. Man closes his eyes and turns his head to the limited capacity of the planet’s resources, breeds wildly in numbers and not even cares about the impoverished world he will leave to his descendants. On the one hand we see billionaires showing off their fortunes, mainly obtained over the innocence or human stupidity and shallowness and at the same time over a billion people are starving or eating very poorly but a billion pets are fed as parasites buying its “love”….

Humanity is a concept based on a the human capacity to show a whole set of feelings that animals can’t because they do not have them but this man is getting more and more hypocritical by the day, more heartless, more cruel, more inhuman.

Refugees, a global issue?

Does Australian politicians know what are they doing bringing 12.000 refugees into the Country? Are they simply improvising and succumbing under the international pressure of those powerful countries that start or favor wars….as a business? Australia’s economy is mainly based on mining, real estate and retailers, the workers floating around the incredible (artificial) high prices of housing are probably the best paid at the moment, many are making billions, the government lowers interest rates (to historical low values) and make them richer…. and other people poorer, gess who?. But Australia has many other problems, as any other country, public services are deteriorating rapidly, especially health services, leaving people without jobs and tax payers without assistance, there are many people living on Centrelink benefits, legally or not (tax payers money), jobs are hard to find, electricity bills are the highest in the world, obesity, drug consumption and alcohol are serious growing problems that increase pressure on public heath. While government policies (any party) go in one direction (the best paid politicians in the world), the economy goes the other way and they do not seem to understand it or look the other way. Fighting other countries wars and getting as counterpart the consequences of it in terms of war expenses, death soldiers and lots of refugees does not seem the right way to go, at least for me….and I sceptic, solidarity among humans only works one way….

Is Democracy good for everyone?

This subject has ben analyzed by many experts, many times, during a long period of time, here my own version. Most industrialized first world countries show democracy as the way to standout from the crowd, together with freedom, entrepreneurs, educated citizens, a non invasive State, law enforcement and more. Most of these countries may have had a certain form of democracy from several centuries back. Many countries are industrialized but the population is typically 3rd wordily, others have been ruled by dictators practically since they were born or have had glimpses of democracy from time to time and many still have very ancients forms of government dating centuries ago or millennia.Is Democracy good for everyone? Giving a look at the daily press headlines in this convulsed world the conclusion is obvious. In many latin american countries democracy and populism has given raise to a new inhabitant that decides with his vote the faith of the Country. Below a common profile.

Age: middle thirties

Education: left early primary school

Profession: none, sells anything, legal or illegal

Civil State: single, partnership, married, divorced, occasional, or all of them at a given time

Goal in life: don’t work much, get as much money as possible (during the week)

On weekends: bear, partying, lottery, sex with any available

Children: several, does not know exactly how many, he does not care, no sense of parent ship

Future: the same but better, perhaps a payment from government could help..

“I was born here, I deserve to have a share on the country’s resources and money”

End.

Animal Rights?, the Right Ones..

There are half a billion dogs on the planet and if we add cats and other pets the number skyrockets to over a billion. There are also about a billion people that does not feed well, ranging from malnutrition to famine but….. we prefer to look the other side while we feed pets, give them living facilities, grooming, pet-sitting, entertainment, psychologic consultation, vets, insurance, medicines, hospitals, surgical attention and more, much more. Many, many people do not have access to that quality of life. There are exceptions though….working dogs as sheppards, trained dogs to detect bombs, illegal money, drugs, fires, rescue, dogs for the blind, dogs for vigilance, dogs for people that lost all loved ones are all out of the question, what I am against are the pets converted into parasites, just suckling resources to fulfill man’s miseries.

Besides that, there are thousands of NGO defending the rights of animals to avoid abuse by man but most of them refer to pets (mainly dogs) and animals used/trained for entertainment. Most of those people do not have any idea that hundreds of millions of animals are massacred every year on behave of feeding stupid culinary,  medicinal or economical apetite. Sharks fin soup at 100$/plate, (tasteless but flavored with a cube) causes 100 million sharks to be de-finned and launched to the sea still alive. The wholesale “sport” hunt in Africa, the unproved “oriental medicine” based on myths make kill a huge amount of elephants, rhinos, big cats in general for those “special” parts that cure or invigorate sexual powers. Besides dozens of other examples, the continuous destruction of habitats leads to death to numerous species causing the unbalance of Nature’s equilibrium.

All of the above is much more important in terms of “human rights” that caring for pets, once species are gone, are gone forever and it has a crucial influence in human life, man spits to the sky and then tries to avoid it using an umbrella, what a paradox, but this paradox seems to be imprinted in the genes. We know what the future will be, at least some of us know, either for us or those that don’t by ignorance or looking the other way, the future will be the same. The history of Earth and its inhabitants has given enough evidence about the short term future on a geological magnitude.

UN, OAS, EU and 59.997 more, good for something?

Given how helpless intergovernmental organizations seem to be on these days, starting with the UN, OAS, EU, I went to find how many of them are registered, to my shocking surprise …. 60,000 …
Watching the dramatic state of the world, one wonders what are these organizations for?, what is their practical purpose?, do the results justify its existence ? In the beginning probably the intentions were good and they achieved reasonable agreements, but what about today?
The theory :International cooperation and preventing conflicts.
Practice: do not prevent conflicts, the vast majority of their decisions are economic agreements supposedly for countries, but in reality turn out to be to strengthen the government in power with a view to new elections, they do not encourage democracy and other systems on non-democratic countries; the rich and the tyrants are buying decisions even in sports organizations, blackmailing is a common practice….So what do you think?
