Just an intro/Sunday Morning Open Thread

₪ Cobija: Corporativa al atardecer - Flickr Meeting at Tusk ₪
I am a middle aged man who see's the world as it is not as the propagandists wish it were seen. A man that believes delivering butter always trumps delivering bombs. Someone that knows they don't hate us for our freedoms but for our repeated attempts at expanding Empire at the behest of the corporations, Military Industrial Complex, media and financial moguls to which many politicians on both sides of the debate are beholden. In short, I am a citizen with some things to say that understands we face an uphill battle but, such is life.

Pretty simple actually.

China and Transgender People

Qian Jinfan felt she should be a girl at the age of 3. But she never had a chance to be one until she reached the age of 80.

In June Qian became the oldest Chinese citizen to come out to the media about being transgender…at the age of 84. Despite the efforts of her wife and son to "ground" her, she snuck out of their home to speak to China Daily.

Economic Populist: Why Is Europe's Economy Imploding?

Burning the Midnight Oil for Economic Populism

(NB. This is a copy and paste of what started as a "blog post". See also the original blog post for some excellent contributions by commentators there)


The European Union is in a world of hurt right now, as economies go. The crises in Greece and elsewhere are becoming famous, and latest confidence surveys from Germany (pdf) suggest Germany is risking recession.

The problem? The system was built broken, based on unfounded fantasies about how real world economies actually work. Or, as John Maynard Keynes said nearly a century ago:

“The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.”

You're Doing It Wrong!

This is the first edition of a new weekly series titled "You're Doing It Wrong" wherein I step up on my soapbox and rant a little about the media, the powers that be, and the stuff they get wrong or frame wrong. Essentially, this is gonna be the stuff that I yell at my TV whenever I watch the news or the various talking head shows.
