The Middle-East, Syria, How Much Blood Per Acre Is The Land Worth?

The Middle-East, Syria, How Much Blood Per Acre Is The Land Worth?

 

Sometimes on our evening news we see scenes of places where wars are going on in the ‘Islamic world’. Whether the landscaping is from Libya, Syria, Iraq, or Afghanistan, folks these people are fighting over and losing their lives over what is nothing but rubble. Folks before George W. Bush ran us into Iraq so he could show his daddy ‘how it’s done’, these battle scenes we have been seeing on the evening news were the cities that are now rubble, some had hundreds of thousands, some millions of residents. In the places where buildings are still standing they are so mauled they will need to be torn down even if a total peace started right now. What I am getting at here is a financial question. Think about it for a moment, if Cities like Knoxville Tennessee, Lexington Kentucky, and Deadwood South Dakota were standing in total rubble what would be the cost of the rubble being hauled to a huge land dump/buried and then having the land scraped clean? Then of course there is the cost of reconstruction. Just in the cities that I just mentioned the cost would probably be several hundred billion dollars. What do you think the rebuild cost will be to remake a whole country like Syria from the ground up? If the Syrian President told ISIS that they could have the City (the ruins) of Aleppo, what would they have gained? They would have a lot of stone, a lot of rock, and a whole lot of dry baron dirt. No economy, no infrastructure, no housing, no people, total brain-drain, no food, no transportation system, what piece of dirt over there is worth anyone’s bloodshed? Should the world maybe realize that there is more behind these wars than just wanting the dirt? Could the real issue be the raw hatred of each other (Shiite – Sunni)? If this is the case (and it is) then it makes no sense for ‘the West’ to spill any of our blood over there because this is a fight that will only end when one has killed-off the other, no matter how much of our blood we give to each of them because they both hate our guts. Should the whole world pull a Donald Trump and maybe put a wall up around all of the Middle-East, deport all people whom believe in Islam and make them stay there and fight it out until only one or the other exist? Thing is the world would still have to keep the winner walled in because you know that the winners would unleash all their hate on you as soon as they get back into your country.

The Wall Of Shame

The Wall Of Shame

Why do we build, to keep out

Was not Berlin’s built to keep in

The Great Wall of China can be seen from space

Decide what is real, do you live a sanctified life

Your reflection in the world’s looking glass

Does it show but one face or do you have many

Division from the south, but not from the north

Do you not see your two faces shining

 

What do you think your wall will facilitate

The poor of the south are humans just like you

Hungry, tired, and scared, they come to your gates

Looking for a safe place to build, and work and pray

We build a higher wall, we tell them they have to wait

From terrorist and drugs, you say your wall will defend

You wall out your brother, your neighbor, your friends

 

How is it you can be so cold yet say you’re a Christian

Do you not know, nor see, nor care, people are starving

By your actions you do offend the Lord Himself

Do you not think that a terrorist or a drug King Pin

Can enter your haven from the cold frozen north

Do not speak to me of family values ye hypocrite

As children and mothers die of hunger and guns

At the foot of this wall, this barrier you create

Meet In The Middle: Have The Trump Wall (We Pay For It); And Have Direct Path To Citizenship

Yesterday the Republican Convention opened in Cleveland Ohio to a chorus of hate and infighting among the Republicans as many tried to ‘dump Trump’ from ‘their’ ticket. What they were trying to do was to annul all of the voters voices in all of the states primaries. You see, they so not care what ‘the people’ want or what the people have had to say. Before you jump on the Republicans remember that next week the Democrats have their Convention in Philadelphia Pa  and there are going to be a lot of very upset Bernie Sanders followers there who will never vote for Ms. Hillary even though Bernie sold them out by endorsing her. Remember it was mostly Bernie backers who started most of the violence outside at the Trump rallies.

If Mr. Trump or Mr. Sanders become the next President of the United States, how much can/will actually change in D.C. politics? If either one of these two out-lairs becomes our next President both sides of the Congressional Isle, Republican and Democratic will fight against the will of the people by fighting against our elected President. Both of these grand old parties leaderships are off base in not knowing that it is they themselves who do not represent the actual base of their own party. Personally I still think that this November first there should be at least five names on the Presidential ballot for ‘we the people’ to get to vote on. I think Mr. Sanders and Mr. Trump as Independents, Mr. Cruz as the Tea Party Representative, Ms. Hillary as the Democratic Party’s Representative and Mr. Kasich as the Republican Party’s Representative. I just think that this would give the American people a more ‘honest’ vote. What I mean by this is simply that I believe the American people and these Party’s leaderships would know much more clearly where ‘we the people’ stand on the issues. In my thoughts we then take the top two candidates (provided that no one got above 50% in the first election) square them in another election two weeks later. I’m just saying, it could work, what do you think?

 

What I am asking is for all party’s to meet more toward the center, that way a lot will get accomplished where only gridlock rules right now. The ‘far-right’ wants the Trump Wall and much tighter security at our borders, let America have this wall but have it built along the American side so that we control it. Have it built with American money by legal American workers. Make several legal entry points in each border state. Make it as easy for people on our southern borders to legally enter as we do for our Canadian friends. Then make the penalties for being caught here illegally much more severe.

 

Now the back-end of this argument, the reality of the financial cost and the human cost of deporting a minimum of eleven million people? How about the reality of the children whom were born here? Are we a Christian Nation? Are we, really? We have to make a direct pathway to citizenship for all people living here regardless of nationality. My exception to this rule would have to be is if a person is a convicted felon or has a felony warrant out for their arrest. Those folks wishing to live here should be given a fair and open hearing on their request for citizenship. I hope that you can see that what I am trying to do is to be fair to both ‘extreme’ factions of the two main party’s.  Good diplomacy means that neither side is happy but both sides get good movement in their direction on the issue that they say concerns them the most. Gridlock is destroying our country from the inside and it is not what the majority of the people want. What this election cycle is showing is the fact that the RNC and the DNC don’t give a damn what ‘we the people’ think.

(Philosophy/Poem) THE WALL

The Wall—-First published here on 4-5-14

 

Why do we build, to keep out?

Was not Berlin’s built to keep in?

The Great Wall of China can be seen from space.

Decide what is real

Your reflection in the world’s looking glass

Does it show but one face?

 

Division from the south, but not from the north.

Do you not see your two faces shining?

What do you think your wall will facilitate?

 

The poor of the south,

Hungry, tired, and scared, they come to your gates

Looking for a safe place to build, and work and pray.

We build a higher wall

We tell them they have to wait.

 

From terrorist and drugs, you say your wall will defend.

You wall out your brother, your neighbor, your friends.

How is it you can be so cold?

Do you not know, nor see, nor care

That by your actions you do offend?

 

Do you not think that a terrorist or a drug King Pin

Can enter your haven from the cold frozen north?

Do not speak to me of family values

As children and mothers die of hunger

At the foot of this wall you create.
