Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Yeats – The Second Coming – First Stanza
Things do appear to be coming apart rather rapidly and here is some further proof.
Bandits attacking illegals at border crossings.
Somebody is doing the job the government won’t do. It is too little too late but at least they are adding a cost to illegal border crossings.
Muslim separatists blamed for Chinese 9/11 knife attacks.
I knew this the moment I heard of the event. At least the British papers are willing to spell it out since the American press is lost to truth.
Russia and China in agreement over occupation of Crimea.
The Chinese see this as a good chance to get a green light from Russia over their own ambitions in Asia. This is a prelude to a non-aggression pact similar to the German-Soviet version over the dismantling of Poland.
Men Rob pregnant woman in labor at gunpoint.
The vermin roaming the streets in the USA continue to plumb the depths of depravity. Here you have some displaying their contempt for their fellows in humanity by attacking a pregnant woman in Annapolis, Maryland.
New diet craze of Grasshoppers, Worms, and Termites.
They won’t call this a diet craze when it is all there is left to eat.
Bitcoin theft at Mt. Gox
Half a billion worth of bitcoin digital currency has gone missing from the main exchange that held bitcoin assets. This wasn’t predictable. Oh no, not at all.
Deaths in China Continue for H7N9 Bird Flu
This could be the thing that sets this going across the planet. A pandemic is just waiting to happen.
Bitcoin suffers another loss.
The desire for another currency has produced the opportunity for fraud and theft. Many users of this form of value have lost their investment. I’d stay with silver and gold.
