Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 96

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Pay a third of the normal daily wage before employees start work. These advances would be deducted from their weekly pay. The clocking intelligent machine would disburse the daily advance pay as in teller machine, check that the worker arrive 5 min before schedule, register his face/ finger print. Supervisors would confirm all the exchanges so that cheating occurred. 

Truth is for me the most dangerous term that man has invented:  Truth blocks any consensus, negotiation or meaningful conversation and it connote an extremist disposition based on ignorance and lack of intellectual interactions.

The concept of truth is practically opposite to faith, although people positively correlate it with faith.

Religion is basically a theological philosophy that has been manipulated to be grounded in myths, symbols, and secrecy to satisfy the initiated High Priests and generates its power through scare tactics within the psychic of man.

Twice a year, the Atlantic and Pacific will experience a dozen cyclones of Irma magnitude: When investment in shacks on higher grounds will be imposed by UN?

The sea is 2 degrees hotter and the warmer streams are no longer being cooled enough by the poles. Number of cyclones increased 4 folds in 3 decades and strength far more devastating. Why should we get used to this insanity?

Quand les medias nous familiarisent avec la barbarie et l’atrocite’, c’ est qu’ elles nous ont rendu malade pour qu’ on reagir proprement.

Ce sont ces corps humains, par miliers, qui se decomposent dans les rues qui brouillent la separation entre la vie et la mort.

La puanteur et le silence apres une deflagration (suicide bombing) ne sont pas capter et registrer.

Youth caring about death is as irrelevant to them as shitting and pissing.

Tu peux recevoir les cles pour comprendre la honte, mais jamais le pouvoir de l’effacer.

A force de lire tous les poems qui tombaient a mes yeux, un nauvaise poem conduit a la bonne poesie.

By autistic standards, the normal human brain is easily distracted, obsessively social, and suffers from a deficit of attention to detail.

“Les Scouts partent dans la vie avec une longueur d’avance! Ils ont appris à conduire des équipes, gérer des conflits, motiver et souder les gens. Ils ont également des compétences en gestion de projets: ils savent planifier des objectifs, assumer le leadership. Enfin, ils ont des compétences sociales. Beaucoup choisissent d’ailleurs des métiers proches de l’humain, dans le social ou la santé.” (Emmanuelle Gabioud, ASG –

Soldiers in Lebanon are only allowed to donate blood at military hospitals, unless they are granted permission to do it at civilian ones. This system has provided auto-sufficiency to military hospitals in terms of blood components throughout the years. Too many restrictions on the soldiers: they cannot even vote their conscience, but can die for the homeland. Soldiers are forbidden to talk politics as if expressing an opinion is the pest.

“As long as you’re up, pass me a Grant’s” (bottle of whisky). Ulysses S Grant 8-year mandate was a succession of daily cocktail parties.

Was Ulysses S Grant 8-year mandate of alcoholism a reaction to calamities of civil war or “Proud to be alcoholic” Grant?

Read the funny piece of Art Buchwald on “Precis sur le cocktail”. Apres que les Bostoniens jeterent le the’ (tea) Britanique dans la rade, force a Mrs John Adams de servir  du whisky et gins in her party. L’ idee’ d’ une insurrection fit jour “Hey, le whisky est un meilleur boisson que le the'”

July 2013. Les combatants entraient de la Turkie en Syria en plein jour. Les civils, fuyant la guerre, marchaient la nuit, sans torche, dans la boue du canal, a la merci des passeurs.


What do they share: KuKlusKlan, Drug Cartels, Extremist religious sects…?

Random violence is the most striking resemblance among criminal organizations and one-dimensional violent ideological parties and extreme religious sects.

These criminal organizations start their projects with the strategy of random violence, until the 1% on the top of the organization realizes that business is brisk and profit is coming in.  At this phase, random violence activities are reduced to a minimum, sort of couple of random violent acts are enough to remind the community that “we are still here, and kicking…” I’ll expose a few example of such organizations.

One, on KuKlusKlan.

After the American Civil War, six lawyer soldiers in the Confederate army formed a budding midnight pranks, riding horses and draped in white sheets and pillow-case hoods.  This group chose “KuKlus” for name, from the Greek kuklos or “circle of friends”.

Five former general in the Confederate army, supported by plantation owners, adopted the name and terrorized and killed emancipated black slaves.  This new organization added Kl as a prefix to names, thus Klan for clan.

President Ulysses S. Grant delivered a speech to the House of Representatives in 1872, on the objectives of the Klan: “They are organized to prevent all political action not in accord with the views of the members, to deprive colored citizens of the right to bear arms, and of the right of a free ballot, to suppress the schools in which colored children were taught, and to reduce the colored people to a condition closely allied to that of slavery…

Within a decade in 1870’s, the Klan, as an organization, was defeated by legal and military intervention out of Washington DC. As the federal government troops withdrew from the South, and combined with US Supreme Court ruling for full-scale racial segregation, the Klan reappeared in force.

By 1920, the Klan claimed 8 million members and insinuated that most politicians and police forces in the south were Klans.

This climate of the “supremacists” cowed the Blacks into hunkering down into their own communities. Statistics gathered from 1890 to 1970, revealed the following facts:

First, in the decade of 1890-1899, there were 1,111 lynchings of Blacks, and this number dropped steadily to 3 in the 60’s.

Second, the decades which witnessed high lynching frequency coincided with periods of Klan “suppressed activities”.  Thus, the lynchings were carried out by the prevalent social/political climate of racial discrimination, a climate that the Klan managed to disseminate.

Third, by the 30’s, lynching was no longer a profitable necessity: The huge business profit of the “Board of Directors” of the Klan didn’t need but a couple of lynching per year to go a long way in inducing docile behavior among the southern people.

The Klan created rackets, generated money from “protection of business owners to scare off the unions“, donations from frequent rallies, dues from members… How the Klan lost ground? (Read note 1)

Two, on drug dealers and drug cartels... Read note 4.  You’ll discover that almost all criminal organizations are structured as the legal liberal capitalist enterprises, and that the rational is basically the same for withholding sharing profit with the lower rank-and-files, such as workers and employees.

Three, on extreme religious sects. Since time immemorial, sects in relative majority in a community tend to engage in random violence in order to vacate or force the minority sects into transferring somewhere else.

After the occupation of Iraq by US troops in 2003, waves of “terrorist” random violent mass killing by car-bombs were meant to securing the displacement of minority sects outside the zone of influence of the majority in a region.

Although these occurrences have diminished in number, the toll in casualties for every activity is as large and as brutal as ever. These random violence on “innocent civilians” are strong messages that “we are here…and we want our share of the pie…”

The Zionist terror organizations in Palestine were the first groups to instituting these random violence tactics in the Middle-East, during British mandate. The terror resumed after the partition of Palestine into two lands, at the recognition of the State of Israel, after the recognition, and continuing till today.

Actually, most of the current Islamic “terrorist” organizations have learned the tools and procedures from their Masters the Zionist terror organizations.

For example, the Zionist Irgun and Haganah terror parties forced Palestinians out of their villages by committing genocides in several towns. During the invasion of Lebanon in 1982, Israel dropped bombs on high-rise buildings:  The special bombs (given away by the US Administrations) were of the kind to pierce all floors and detonate in the basement, where hundreds of civilians were huddled.

This tactic was to convince civilians to vacate the area before the advance of the Israeli army…The genocide in the Palestinian camps of Sabra, Chatila, Jenine…are samples of this criminal mentality. Read note 2.

The civil war in Lebanon that lasted over 17 years witnessed random violence by sectarian militia organizations in order to securing their own canton by “cleansing” the areas from “unwanted minorities

Note 1: From a chapter of “Freakonomics” by Levitt and Dubner, we read that Stetson Kennedy, aided by an inside informant to the inner circles of the Klan, disseminated information and pieces of intelligence to journalist Drew Pearson, whose radio program “Washington Merry-Go Round” was heard by million of adults every day, and also to the producers of the show “Adventures of Superman“, which reached million of children every day.

The US citizens got familiar with the secret code names and the secret childish behavior of the Klan organization.  Membership dropped drastically: People felt ashamed being fingered out as Klan…behaving in Klan antics… childish manner…
