YES, SHAME ON EVERY RADICAL, MODERATE, SUFI, SUNNY, SHIIT, AND WHAT-HAVE-YOU MUSLIM FOR BLOWING UP KIDS, WOMEN, INNOCENT MEN ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR THE PAST 50 OR SO YEARS!
YES, ONLY RADICAL FUNDAMENTALISTS DO IT. BUT THE REST OF THE MUSLIMS CONDONE IT BY BEING THE SILENT MAJORITY. THE REST OF THE MUSLIM WORLD NEVER GETS ANGRY AT THEIR CRAZY RADICALS WHEN A SUICIDAL “MARTYR” BLOWS UP BY THE ICE CREAM TRUCK, KILLING AND MAIMING DOZEN OF TODDLERS LIKE IT HAPPENED 10 YEARS AGO IN ISRAEL, OR WHEN A FEW JIHADISTS ROUND 300 SCHOOL CHILDREN AND HOLD THEM FOR 3 DAYS IN A STUFFY SCHOOL AUDITORIUM WITHOUT WATER OR FOOD, KILLING THEM RANDOMLY AND LEAVING 7 Y.O. DRINK THEIR URINE TO SURVIVE, LIKE IT HAPPENED IN BESLAN 5 OR SO YEARS AGO. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF MUSLIM RADICALS BLOW UP A PLANE OR DROP A PLANE ON A BUILDING, OR BLOW UP A TRAIN STATION – THE REST OF THE MUSLIMS ARE SILENT. THEY DON’T CONDEMN OR TRY TO CHANGE THE SCREWED UP THINKING THAT GOES INTO THIS KIND OF VIOLENCE. SO THEY ALL ARE GUILTY OF THE ATROCITIES THEIR RADICALS PERPETRATE.
WHEN THE BOMBS EXPLODED IN BOSTON, I WAS AT WORK. I SAID TO MY CO-WORKERS THE FIRST THING THAT CAME INTO MY MIND: “I WONDER WHAT THOSE MUSLIMS SAY TO THEIR ALLAH WHEN THEY GO DOWN IN FLAMES WITH ALL THEIR MASS KILLINGS”. A POLITICALLY CORRECT CO-WORKER IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO ARGUE THAT WE DON’T KNOW IF THE BOMBERS ARE MUSLIMS, AND EVEN IF THEY ARE, NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE THE SAME.
NOW WE KNOW: THEY ARE MUSLIMS. AND I WOULD SAY, THEY ALL ARE THE SAME. WHEN I GOT HOME AFTER WITNESSING THE WTC COLLAPSE ON 9/11, THE PALESTINIAN FAMILY THAT LIVED ACROSS FROM ME WAS HAVING A PIZZA PARTY NOT EVEN TRYING TO HIDE THEIR JOY.
YES, PALESTINIANS HAVE IT TOUGH IN ISRAEL, AND ISRAELIANS TREAT THEM HORRIBLY. BUT THIS FAMILY WAS LIVING IN AMERICA, WHERE NO ONE MISTREATED THEM, AND THEY WERE SO HAPPY THAT 3000 PEOPLE THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW LOST THEIR LIVES.
OF COURSE, I ALSO KNOW OTHER MUSLIMS. I SPENT 4 DAYS AS A GUEST OF A FUNDAMENTALIST MUSLIM FAMILY IN KARACHI IN 1997, AND IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIND KINDER AND MORE GENEROUS PEOPLE THAN THEM. BUT I SAY THEY TOO SHOULD BE ASHAMED BY NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THE MURDEROUS JIHADISTS IN THEIR MIDST.
I HAVE NOT READ KORAN, BUT I’VE HEARD IT SAYS THAT ONE SHOULD NOT HARM EVEN A TREE. UNFORTUNATELY, IT ALSO SAYS SOMEWHERE THAT A MUSLIM WHO WOULD KILL AN INFIDEL AND DIE AS A MARTYR WOULD GET 72 VIRGINS AFTER DEATH. THE MUSLIM HEAVEN MUST BE RUNNING OUT OF VIRGINS BY NOW. I ALSO KNOW THAT MUSLIMS BELIEVE THEIR ALLAH IS ONE GOD, THE SOLE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. DOES NOT IT OCCUR TO THEM THEN THAT THEIR ALLAH ALSO CREATED THE INFIDELS? THAT THE INFIDELS’ KIDS MUST BE INNOCENT, SINCE THE ALLAH HAS NOT PROVIDED THEM WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO KNOW THE CORRECT FAITH THEN?
IT OCCURS TO ME, THOUGH, THAT THEY DON’T CARE, SINCE THEY BOMB EACH OTHER WITH THE SAME ZEAL THEY BOMB THE INFIDELS.
I AM BEGINNING TO THINK THAT THEIR ALLAH IS THE CHRISTIAN LUCIFER/ DEVIL, SO THEY MUST ALL BE DEVIL WORSHIPERS. HOW ELSE TO EXPLAIN OTHERWISE THAT THE GREATER MAJORITY OF BLOODY CONFLICTS AND MASS KILLINGS ON OUR PLANETS HAVE BEEN INVOLVING MUSLIMS? WHETHER IT IS CHECHNYA, FORMER YUGOSLAVIA, SUDAN, MIDDLE EAST, SPAIN OR THE U.S., LOOK FOR MUSLIMS TO COMMIT THE BLOODIEST OF ATROCITIES.
IT’S ONE THING WHEN THEY KILL AMERICAN SOLDIERS IN IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN – THAT’S WAR. BUT IT IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT THING WHEN THEY KILL KIDS, MARATHONERS, TRAIN TRAVELERS OR WAITERS, CLERKS, AND OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING THOSE LUNATICS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT.
YES, THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE IN THE CHRISTIAN WORLD THAT COMMIT ATROCITIES AND MASS KILLINGS TOO. HITLER, FOR ONE, IS UNFORGETTABLE. BUT HIS ATROCITIES HAD A PURPOSE, THEY WERE A MEANS TO AN END. THE SAME GOES FOR JAPANESE AND AMERICANS (THIS WORLD HAS NOT WITNESSED WORSE A DESTRUCTION THEN THE ATOMIC BOMBS DROPPED ON JAPAN BY THE U.S.). BUT WE HAVE CONDEMNED THOSE ATROCITIES, WE FOUGHT AGAINST THE PERPETRATORS, WE HAVE VOWED TO NEVER REPEAT THOSE HORRORS.
WE ALSO HAVE CRAZIES WHO GUN DOWN KIDS, MOVIE-GOERS, PASSERSBY. BUT WE CONDEMN THEM, WE SUE THEM, WE ATTEMPT TO CREATE LAWS THAT WOULD HELP PREVENT FURTHER ACTS LIKE THOSE. AT THE VERY LEAST WE DEBATE OUR DISTURBING INCIDENTS.
MUSLIMS, ON THE OTHER HAND, EITHER PRAISE THEIR MURDERERS AS “MARTYRS” OR REMAIN SILENT AND COMPLACENT ON THE ISSUE.
THAT’S WHY EVERY SELF-PITYING LOSER OF MUSLIM FAITH FEELS A RIGHT TO ACT OUT HIS ANGER AT THE WORLD AND TURN IT INTO “JIHAD” ACT OF EXTREME VIOLENCE AGAINST TOTALLY INNOCENT HUMAN BEINGS THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW.
SHAME ON ALL MUSLIMS FOR BOMBING THE BOSTON MARATHONERS, TORTURING BESLAN KIDS, BOMBING MADRID TRAIN STATION, LONDON UNDERGROUND, KILLING 3000 PEOPLE ON 9/11, ETC., ETC.!

GOD WAS LONELY, SO LONELY AS THERE WAS NO ONE BUT HIM
AND HE MADE HIMSELF A MIRROR JUST TO BREAK THE LONE ROUTINE
GOD WAS JOYOUS, SO JOYOUS AS REFLECTION CAME ALIVE
HE COULD SEE HIS NATURE NOW AND CAME TO KNOW IT AS LOVE
FINALLY SOMEONE TO TALK TO, TO TAKE CARE OF, TO RELATE
“HI”, HE SAID TO HIS REFLECTION, “CAN WE GO ON A DATE?”
BUT REFLECTION LAUGHED ALOUD, “I AM STILL THE PERFECT YOU.
REAL LOVE NEEDS IMPERFECTION, SO IT COULD HEAL THE WOUND”.
GOD WAS BROKEN, SO BROKEN, AND THE MIRROR FELL APART
INTO ZILLION TINY PIECES – JUST LIKE HIS REJECTED HEART.
AND IN EVERY PIECE HE LOOKED AT, HE COULD STILL SEE BUT HIMSELF.
BUT EACH PIECE WAS JAGGED AND CROOKED IN THE UNIQUE WAY IT FELL.
AND GOD CRIED, AND DIVINE TEARS FELL ON EACH AND EVERY PIECE,
MIXING IN WITH PAIN AND FEARS A LITTLE BIT OF WHAT HE IS.
AND HE CALLED EACH PIECE “A SOUL”. EACH WAS RAGGED, SORE AND ROUGH.
AND HE NURSED THEM AND CONSOLED THEM, SMOOTHING EVERY EDGE WITH LOVE.
AND HE TRIED TO HEAL THE WOUND. HE CREATED EARTH AND SKY.
BUT EACH PIECE STILL FILLS HIS EARS WITH ETERNAL LONELY CRY,
ASKING PUT TOGETHER PIECES, MAKE EACH SOUL FEEL COMPLETE
WITH SOMEONE WHO FITS THE CRANNIES, SO PAIN SUBSIDES A BIT.
AND GOD SEES HIS BROKEN IMAGE THAT REFLECTS IN EVERY SOUL,
AND HE SEES THAT HE IS A WOUND THAT IS SORE, OH, SO SORE…
WITH HIS HEART IN ZILLION PIECES, A ZILLION TIMES HIS LOVE HAS GROWN.
YET IT IS STILL UNREQUITED, MAKING HIM FEEL ALL ALONE.
AND HE LOOKS AT EVERY SOUL, HOPING TO GET A GLANCE
HOPING, WAITING FOR THAT MOMENT THAT WOULD HEAL THE HEART AT ONCE
FOR THAT SPARK OF RECOGNITION, THAT WOULD MAKE HER REALIZE
HE’S THE ONE WHO DOES COMPLETE HER,
WHEN HE’S REFLECTED IN HER EYES…

AFTER THE APOCALYPTIC FRANKENSTORM “SANDY”, ISRAEL NARROWINGLY AVERTING A WAR, EUROPEAN UNION ON THE BRINK, ETC., I AM ALMOST READY TO ACCEPT THAT THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO END BY X-MASS. IN CASE IT DOES NOT, YOU MAY ENJOY MY PREDICTIONS FOR 2013:)
FIRST, I MUST PAT MYSELF ON THE SHOULDER FOR PRETTY ACCURATE 2012 PREDICTIONS IN MY ARTICLE “THE YEAR 2012″:
1) OBAMA WON (ALTHOUGH THE ELECTIONS WERE CLOSE ENOUGH AND ROMNEY’S CHART TOO GOOD TO SCARE ME FOR A WHILE)
2) OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT PICKED IN FEBRUARY- MARCH (BUT IT WAS ITS END RATHER THAN BEGINNING OF SOMETHING MEANINGFUL)
3) THE U.S.’ ECONOMY BEGAN TO SPEED TOWARDS THE RECOVERY ONLY BY JULY, JUST AS I PREDICTED IT WOULD
4) THE WORLD IS IN TURMOIL AS WE SPEAK, IN ACCORDANCE WITH MY PREDICTIONS, AND
5) GUESS WHAT COUNTRY IS MOST BOTHERED AND BOTHERSOME RIGHT NOW? – IRAN, JUST LIKE I SAID. ALL THIS YEAR IT HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS. BESIDES ITS WORRISOME POLITICS AND NUKE AMBITIONS, ITS ECONOMY IS IN THE FREEFALL, FIRING UP THE INTERNAL UNREST
6) I DID SAY “CHINA IS ALSO LIKELY TO BE IN THE NEWS BECAUSE OF SUDDEN TRANSFORMATIONS”. WELL, ITS TRANSFORMATIONS ARE NOT SUDDEN, BUT THERE IS NEW LEADERSHIP THERE.
7) DESPITE WORRYING US TO DEATH, THE EUROPEAN UNION, GREECE AND ISRAEL ARE STILL THERE.
BASICALLY, I WAS RIGHT ON EVERY ACCOUNT.
SO NOW WHAT DO I SEE FOR 2013?
MOSTLY, GOOD THINGS: THE COMING YEAR IS GOING TO BE MORE PEACEFUL AND PROSPEROUS FOR THE MOST OF US (GLOBAL WARMING NOTWITHSTANDING).
THE U.S. IS NOT HURTING IN ANY WAY. ITS ECONOMY SHOULD BE ON UP AND UP, ESPECIALLY AS OF JULY.
I AM A BIT WORRIED BY THE JUPITER GOING OVER THE 7TH HOUSE IN SIBLY’S CHART (WHICH IS MY FAVORITE FOR THE U.S.). THIS WOULD MEAN INCREASED ACTIVITIES IN FOREIGN AFFAIRS, AND THIS TO ME IS NEVER GOOD. EVEN IF WE ARE NOT ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN A WAR, WE MAY GET OUR HANDS DIRTY.
ISRAEL, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS GOING TO BE ENDANGERED AND INCREASINGLY ISOLATED FOR THE NEXT 2 YEARS, AS SATURN IS STROLLING OVER ITS FIRST HOUSE OF SELF, OPPOSITE TO THE 7TH HOUSE OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS. BUT 2014 IS GOING TO BE MUCH WORSE. SO IT IS STILL MORE OR LESS OK IN 2013. IN FACT, OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEACE AND IMPROVED ECONOMY WOULD MOST CERTAINLY PRESENT THEMSELVES EARLY IN THE YEAR AND THEN, EVEN BETTER, IN JULY OF 2013. BUT THOSE GOOD THINGS ONLY POSTPONE THE THE DARK CLOUDS ON ITS HORIZON.
RUSSIA MAY ACTUALLY FIND ITSELF IN A MUCH WORSE SHAPE THAN ISRAEL. BUT NOTHING DRASTIC IS EXPECTED IN 2013, JUST THE PRESSURE BUILD-UP. IT WOULD ALSO FIND ITSELF AT ODDS WITH THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AS SATURN SQUARES ITS ASCENDANT (SELF)/ DESCENDANT (OTHERS, I.E. FOREIGN AFFAIRS). BUT THIS IS SOFTENED BY JUPITER TRINING THE ASCENDANT AT THE SAME TIME – WHICH IS JULY. THAT VERY MONTH, URANUS COMES 1 DEGREE AWAY FROM SQUARING RUSSIAN SUN. WHATEVER IS HAPPENING OVER THE SUMMER WITH RUSSIA WOULD GROW INTO A REAL PROBLEM IN 2014. BUT IN 2013 IT IS STILL SAFE.
THE EUROPEAN UNION IS IN MUCH SADDER SITUATION IN 2013: SATURN IS GOING OVER ITS SUN IN JANUARY, APRIL AND SEPTEMBER.
THE SUN IN THE E.U.’S CHART RULES ITS FIRST HOUSE (SELF) AND IS LOCATED IN THE FOURTH HOUSE (ITS PEOPLE), AND ITS PEOPLE ARE INCREASINGLY NOT HAPPY WITH THE E.U..
LUCKILY THOUGH, THE JUPITER ALSO COMES ALONG IN JULY, BEGINNING TO TRINE ALL THOSE SCORPIO PLANETS IN THE E.U.’S FOURTH HOUSE. SO THE EUROPEAN UNION IS NOT GOING AWAY, AT LEAST, FOR NOW.
EVEN GREECE BENEFITS IN 2013: IT IS GOING TO GET THE NECESSARY MONEY INFLUX INTO ITS ECONOMY AND WOULD FIND ITSELF ON THE GOOD SIDE OF THINGS BY THE SECOND PART OF 2013, AS JUPITER WOULD BEGIN TRAVERSING ITS FIRST HOUSE, AND NOTHING ELSE IN THE GREECE’ CHART IS COMPROMISED BY ANYTHING IN HEAVENS AT THE MOMENT.
WE SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT EGYPT EITHER IN THE COMING YEAR. IT WOULD ENJOY GENERAL PROSPERITY AND PEACE.
AFGHANISTAN PRESENTS A MUCH SADDER PICTURE: AS NATO WITHDRAWS, ITS STAR BEGINS TO SET, AND IT WOULD FIND ITSELF IN SHAMBLES BY THE END OF THIS DECADE. BUT IN 2013 IT IS STILL OK.
THE ONLY COUNTRY OF THOSE I’VE EXAMINED THAT IS GOING TO HAVE REALLY TOUGH TIME IN 2013 IS IRAN . IT IS GOING TO SUFFER FROM THE ECONOMIC EMBARGO, ESPECIALLY IN THE FALL, AS SATURN IS SQUARING ITS MARS AND SUN. BUT ITS POPULATION IS GOING TO FEEL MORE PATRIOTIC, CONSOLIDATING BEHIND THE GOVERNMENT, AS A SERIOUS WAR THREAT IS LIKELY IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER. I SAY SO, BECAUSE JUPITER IS GOING OVER ITS FOURTH HOUSE (PEOPLE, LAND, HISTORY). THE WAR, HOWEVER, IS UNLIKELY, AS ONE PLANET DOES NOT MAKE A TREND. BUT DO EXPECT THIS COUNTRY TO WORRY US THOUGH, AS WE MOVE ON TO 2014.
SO, AS NYC AND I ARE RECOVERING FROM “SANDY”‘S SHOCKER, I AM WISHING YOU PEACEFUL AND PROSPEROUS 2013 AS PER MY PREDICTIONS:)

The Frankenstorm is about to blow into my windows on this Sunday night, 3 days before the Halloween. But it is not what I am scared about. I am scared of what to come 10 days from now. Never was I so nervous about an election. I never even cared about politics until the Clinton impeachment attempt.
But now it is becoming too personal, too close to home.
Maybe, of course, I am too traumatized by 2008. Then my business was in shambles. I was living through my savings, counting how many napkins my 7y.o. uses. I tried to get a job. LOL. The principal of my child’s school wrote me a recommendation, so I could get a teacher’s assistant job. I paid $200 to the department of ed for fingerprinting only to find out that all positions were frozen. I collected 10 recommendations so I could get the position of a deceased interpreter in court only to find out that all positions there were frozen too. I filled out an application for court officer test only to realize that the salary of the first 2 years would not pay my rent…
Now things are back to New normal. My business is making money again at 2005 level. Of course, money now does not go too far, so I am just making my ends meet instead of taking skiing trips and cruising like I used to. I cannot save a dollar. I also realize that there is not much I can do to improve the situation. I already work 60 hrs/wk instead of 20 like in 2005. I am also 7 yrs older, and I feel it. It’s hard to imagine that this is going to be the way of my life 10 – 20 yrs from now, but I also know now that I cannot retire. So 20 yrs from now I will, probably, still be running around town, albeit with a walker. And, if I don’t find a way to triple my income, with the cost of living inflation going in the same pace, I would also be running barefoot and hungry.
And, if Romney gets elected, I also stand to lose my medicare. Which could be a blessing in disguise: if I would not be able to afford the medicine I might need, I would die sooner, unburdening my son and myself.
“Don’t worry”, I hear, “Romney promises good business climate. He is a businessman himself”. Right. He made money by shipping our jobs to China. He has investments there. Because that’s where American money has gone. He has no idea how to grow a business. He only knows how to buy one.
How can I believe anything that he promises? He is a shape shifter. Is he moderate? Is he tea-bagging? If I were to judge him by the company he keeps – D. Trump, Paul Ryan.. – that’s not encouraging me at all.
It looks to me like he wants the presidency like another trophy. So he personally has no agenda besides winning. But his running mate does. And so goes my medicare.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not a great Obama fan either. But things are improving, albeit slowly. So why change horses in the mid-stream? Besides, I already know what I am getting there. BUSINESS NEEDS STABILITY. I need to be able to see ahead and plan accordingly. And I cannot stomach another 2008.
That’s why I am scared that Romney may win. I did say so in August when Obama looked practically like a shoe in (see my article Romney May Win). I am rarely wrong. So the end of 2012 may actually be the end of the world I used to know. Add to that the scary “Arab Spring”, Europe going bankrupt, Iran going nuclear, and we really get the perfect Frankenstorm gathering over our heads. And there is not a single leader in sight who can save the boat we are in…

In a few months, Americans are going to elect another president.
They have 2 guys to choose from: an incumbent Democrat and a vying Republican, since they only have 2 parties to play with.
That’s OK, since Democrats is a very amorphous party – they accept people with all kinds of point of view. Because of that they stand for nothing. In fact, they cannot even stand. They are spineless. So they always compromise.
As you know, in a compromise, nobody is happy. That’s why they are always unhappy.
On the other hand, they are a peaceful bunch with a “live and let live” attitude. They are understanding, agreeable, even if total push-overs. Every Democrat has a heart bleeding for every underdog that ever walked the Earth: gays, polar bears, the III world, kids, elderly, disabled, women, blacks, immigrants, etc.. In other words, they are sweet loving softies.
You just need to make cute eyes and ask for goodies, and the Democrats would bend all over to give you what you ask.
If gays want to get married, Democrats would throw a wedding. If polar bears want their ice back, they would stop drilling in Alaska and drive electric cars. If people are starving in Africa, they would send them their savings. If kids don’t get their breakfast, they would create a law to ensure every school kid get a free breakfast in school.
If women don’t want to have a kid, they would provide them with contraceptives and free abortions, and so on.
The only thing the Democrats appear to hate is guns (because they are woossies that are afraid of anything dangerous in the hands of children, and those guns for some reason always get into children’s hands).
But America is a big country, so as all embracing the Democratic party is, there are still people who could not fill the bill.
Those people call themselves Republicans.
And of course, they are totally opposite to their Democratic brethren. They are toughies (bullies is a politically incorrect word, and Republicans are extremely sensitive as to how you call them. They don’t even like when their political opponents say something negative about them. As a spineless compromising Democrat, I really don’t want to step on their toes).
The Republicans, being opposite to the Democrats, like only VERY RICH BOSSY people. Because, when they grow up, they want to become just like them.
Everything and everyone else they hate. They hate gays, and, whenever they are not gays themselves, they try to reform them and make them straight. And whenever gays want to marry, they’d rather shoot them.
They hate polar bears, kittens, trees, clear water, etc.. So when they cannot hunt/ cut/ poison them down to extinction, they would mine/ drill/put nasty polluting plants where these creatures live, so they would die slowly and painfully.
They hate kids, and not only they don’t want them to have free breakfast, they would like free education to go extinct too.
They hate women, and whenever they can afford it, they like their women to be always barefoot and pregnant. So they kill doctors who provide free contraceptives and abortions.
But when they have to send those pregnant women with many babies at tow to work, they make sure that these women don’t get men’s wages or get promoted. They certainly don’t want to see those women and babies going to a doctor either, so they cut their medicaid. God forbid, these women and kids want to eat – so they cut their foodstamps, etc., etc..
They hate the elderly too, and want them to die sooner rather than later. So they want to take away their medicare and foodstamps too.
They hate disabled, and would like to take their disability benefits away (and foodstamps).
They hate immigrants, and would like to deport every single one of them, and then to put American Wall at the border (I’m sure they want it to be bigger than the Chinese Wall, because Republicans are VERY PROUD AMERICANS (unlike the Democrats, whom they don’t even consider Americans and would like to deport them too).
They hate the first, the second, the third and the fourth worlds, because these countries are not America. So they wage wars on smaller countries at every opportunity. Because those stupid Democrats always ask them why America needs to go to war, the Republicans tell them that they are simply exporting American Democracy. When Democrats hear the word “Democracy”, they shut up. But really the Republicans simply want to kill those people because THEY DON’T LIKE THEM, and take their money/ oil/artifacts, so they can finally become VERY RICH BOSSY people like the ones that pay them.
The Republicans hate the poor, and want them to fend for themselves, so they could give them charity as bible requires (they are Christians).
Did I forget to mention, that they hate all non-Christian infidels, especially Muslims, except for Israeli Jews and Arabs of Saudi Arabia. I am not sure why they like Jews. Maybe, because some of them are VERY RICH BOSSY people. The Saudies they like because of oil. To them, oil is black gold.
But that is the only black they like. Black people they hate. Imagine how they felt when those spineless Democrats elected A BLACK PRESIDENT OF THEIR AMERICA!!!!
They started drinking funny tea right away at their party, making all kinds of noise, so the poor POTUS could not do his job and cut the tires on electric cars of the Democrats.
The good thing is they have not used their guns yet (they LOVE their guns(probably, because the Democrats hate them))
They also say they love God. But I don’t believe them because
1) they always lie
2) they hate everything and everyone that God created (except for themselves and VERY RICH BOSSY people)
But the good thing about Republicans, one always knows what they stand
for against, like
A) They hate government (and democrats in particular).
The only thing they want that requires government is military. They want bad big powerful military so they can go to war always. That is why, probably, they don’t want women to have abortions – they need those babies as soldiers.
Because the Republicans are very sensitive people, as I’ve already mentioned, if they got nukes, they don’t want any other country to have the nukes (because they are Proud Americans, and their weapons always must be bigger and better than anyone else’s).
I don’t know where they are going to get the money for that, because
B) they hate taxes. Taxes support the government, and they don’t want the government, only the military.
C) They hate the deficit. They are always surprised how come a Republican president has amassed such a big deficit, and always demand that a Democratic president would cut that deficit down.
When a Democratic president asks the Republicans how can he cut that deficit if they don’t want to pay taxes but want to have large military, they tell him to tax the kids, the elderly, the poor, the disabled, the polar bears and trees.
When a Democratic president says, “But I was sitting all night with my calculator, and it just does not compute”, they say that he does not know his economy, and that they are going to get a cheaper President in China.
Of course, the Republicans know the economy very well. Their middle name is VERY RICH BOSSY something.
Obviously, not all of them are VERY RICH BOSSY something, because only 1% of all American people can be VERY RICH and Bossy, and some people out of that 1% are even Democrats. But to the Republicans the middle name is enough.
They have even created their THINK TANKS. Those are either tanks that think, or the tanks, where Republicans do their thinking (I’ve told you they like weaponry).
Obviously, that thinking did some good for them. They’ve learned that real power is not even guns or money, but mass media.
Once they learned it, they’ve bought every American radio channel, a TV channel and a newspaper. The push-over Democrats now have only a little bit of the internet left. And because even Democrats like to read a newspaper or watch a TV once in a while, now even they are thinking there is something wrong them, and with the way they calculate their economy. And even if a Democrat gets elected now, that Democrats also wants to cut taxes and benefits, especially those benefits that the Republicans hate so much: subsidies to the poor, their foodstamps, etc., and think that welfare is a dirty word.
Of course, I am a Democrat, so I think that the Democrats I vote for are not going to cut as much of those benefits as a Republican guy would.
I also don’t read newspapers or watch TV – have not got the time (working 60 hrs/day + raising a kid would do it).
So maybe it’s a good thing that most of us now have to work so much more (the pay is less nowadays, and the cost of living grows on steroids – but there is no inflation, I hear (???)) – this way we, the Democrats, may continue to think like Democrats a little longer, even if not in a tank…

In my article The Year 2012, I wrote that my money is on Obama. That is because his Dasas for the next 4 years are very similar to the past 4 years (difficult and unsatisfying).
Moreover, Romney begins to resemble wooden Pinocchio. Ever since he entered the race for the White House, he became woodier and stiffer by the day, and every day when he is not lying or repeats like a parrot whatever the GOP wants him to say, he is obviously hiding something (like his tax returns).
Until 2011, I actually respected him – even in January 2012, when I wrote my Shark Tank piece.
But since some people already expect Obama to win re-election, I decided to take a look at Romney’s chart.
My first and last impression is WOW – this guy is spoiled by fate. Life could not be easier for this Pinocchio: everything he can conjecture, he gets.
Of course, he has his challenges too. When he feels insecure (which is often lately) because he knows he is different, he projects this stiff conservative demeanor. But he has his rebellious side. He is also a controlling freak (that’s why he feels so awful at being controlled – like he is now), and he is a true workaholic, aching for fame and recognition. He is also a golden go-getter. If he was not so hijacked by the GOP handlers, he could sell you a Brooklyn bridge in 5 minutes.
Lying does come naturally to him: he is Pisces, and so he is well aware the reality is not solid and can be manipulated.
With his Mars in Pisces as well, he is passive-aggressive.
But he does not hide things well, and all his secrets usually come out.
He is in his Sun dasa now, and his Sun is good for his career, particularly in management and government,so a government post is his for the picking.
Moreover, as of May and through November, he is his best Sun sub-dasa: Sun/Mercury. Mercury is a very helpful planet in his Vedic chart as the ruler of 2nd and 5th houses, and is next to the Sun and Mars in his 10th house of career.
So YES, Romney may very well win. Obama supporters may relax and skip on voting, independents may get so disgusted with both candidates that may skip on voting too, and many polling places may be rigged and/ or turn away some democrats on account of ID issues.
From that point on, Romney’s life sucks.
But who cares – ours will too.
Expect Obamacare to be dismantled, insurance premium sky-rocket; all kinds of de-regulations will take place, taxes of 1% cut to bare minimum, a war with Iran and cold war with Russia ignite, deficit to go through the roof, and the 99% turn into impoverished peones competing for slave wages…
But then, maybe, I could qualify as a refugee in Canada…

To be sure, I am a big fun of technology. I owned the first cell phone (that big and heavy thing), the first PC (that had 2 megabytes of memory and had to use the compression program, called “Stucker” to function).
When the first smart phone, Treo, hit the market, I was one of the very first people to get my hands on it.
It was more than a toy to me. It changed my life, allowing me to operate my business wherever I was, so I could skip on the costs of a brick office.
Many computers, cell phones and Treos later, I suddenly found myself looking for a new Treo substitute. Ever since HP acquired Palm (that has acquired Treo earlier), they have effectively killed the model of a Truly Smart Phone.
I got me a Palm Prixi as a substitute #1, and returned it 3 days later. The Treo I’ve got a few years earlier was so much more superior to it in every respect.
I got me an HTC Evo View tablet, planning for it to be the Treo substitute #2. With all the Android apps on the market, surely I should have now even a better office on the go. But standard address book on HTC screwed up my contacts so badly, it was unusable. I tried many other apps, and finally started entering my thousands of contacts (a must in my business) manually into Deja Office, because there I could have my unlimited categories (very important to me). I tried to sync my HTC with Deja sync (costing $40+ for the licence) with my Outlook, and immediately screwed up a category, which I could neither delete nor edit(?why would not they think of this?).
In fact, every Android sync I have tried so far would duplicate everything – contacts, playlists, pictures, etc. – both, in my PC and my tablet.
My every Treo (and I had several since it was first made) synced seamlessly with either Palm Desktop (great app) or outlook. I could easily multitask on Treo before Iphone was invented. And for business, no smart phone was smarter.
Blackberry came close, but it was more expensive to operate, and as a phone, it did not sound as good.
Eventually (I am now locked in a 2 yr contract), I will get me a Blackberry as a Treo substitute #3, if it still exists then (I hear, the company is in trouble).
But I will always miss my Treo, its easy and perfect sync, and so usable Palm Desktop.
I don’t care for touchable screens (all those smudges). Treo stylus worked great for me.
HTC has nothing Treo did not have, except for bigger screen size (I like that). At least, I thought, I could use it as a reader.
But here I am, on my vacation, ready to lay down in the sun with a book on my tablet – and I cannot see the screen in a sun at all. Even in a shade it is not much better. So the real book (that old paper format) is still superior to the new technological toy.
I am writing this post, using my PC, as typing is also not so great on the tablet’s virtual keyboard. Treo has invented QWERTY keyboard, and it is still superior to the new virtual ones.
As I am typing in text on the wordpress, I am wondering where the HTML writer has gone (I loved writing my posts in HTML).
I am also thinking that most of PC software, Google and now WordPress went now with the awful modern minimalist format – these unreadable white with light blue/ light grey pages and tiny links one has to spend time looking for.
Let me also complain about those new and newer microsoft windows.
While some Window7 features are nice (I can easily find any document I am looking for), when things go wrong, though, I find myself missing Windows XP – they had a so much more helpful control panel.
I am also missing some great software, that no longer functions with new Windows (and wait, they are about to release Windows 8). For years I used a great astrological program made for DOS (remember that operating software?). When I had to buy a new PC, I also had to buy a new astrological software, because Windows 7 could not run it. I went to the same software company, and paid $300+ for the “upgrade”, which I found to be totally unusable. It had too many bells and whistles, but calculating a simple solar return made me sweat from all the effort.
I also deleted MSWord2007, and got exhausted trying MSWord 2010, so I went back to MSWord 2003.
It seems that all that technology nowadays is made to make us shell more dollars rather than easing our lives.
A friend of mine got a new Mercedes, that suddenly started blinking the airbag light. We were afraid to take a trip in it, worrying that the airbag may deploy at any moment. This was a little thing, a tiny software flaw that made my friend to take it to the shop. I still remember how my first husband could easily fix whatever wrongs with his Porsche, because they did not computerize the cars so much then.
And don’t let me start on durability. In 2010, I have finally replaced my all-in-one HP printer that I’ve bought in mid-nineties. It was still working, but I fell in love with HP Envy. This beautiful thing lasted only 14 months.
In mid-nineties, HP was still making printers in the U.S.. Now they make them in China, so what should I expect???
Since 2010, I’ve spent about $5000 “upgrading” my technology, only to realize how great things were back then….
Treo went the way it went not because it was a bad product (in fact it was far more superior to anything on the market now), but because the company making it (first the start up Treo, then Palm) did not advertise it properly.
Iphone and Ipad got, on the other hand, plenty of buzz. So the crowd went the Apple way. My friends got the newest Ipad for their 10 y.o., who almost burned his fingers with it. I looked at Ipad before I’ve bought my HTC (another quiet company with a good product), and, obviously, found HTC to be better.
But then I never go with the crowd. When everyone was buying stocks in the 1990s, I stayed away, knowing the stocks were overpriced. But in 2001, I went and bought a few stocks for $500. I bought Amazon that was trading for $6 a share, Treo, and a few others. In 2004, when I was forced to sell my stocks, I unloaded them for almost $4000.
I am still cautious of real estate, as I think the bottom is a few years from now (the global economy is going south, and I expect people to get so much poorer in their majority, and, as they do, the prices should lower too).
When I buy my house, I would want all the modern plumbing and heating, of course. But I will be looking for a pre-war layout….

Yes, I did not make a mistake in this heading. James Holmes was a promising young man, going for Ph.D. in neuroscience,
until he went off the deep end.
Many blame the practically non-existent gun control in this country.
But they tend to miss the real issue.
Let’s face it, the greater majority of mass massacres in the U.S. occurs in schools, in colleges, or is perpetrated by highly educated people like James Holmes.
Perhaps it is time to take a look at how we educate our children. Perhaps then we will see that we are practically drive them crazy:
1) We send them to school when they are too young.
In national obsession to make our kids competitive, we think more schooling would do it. But schooling is not equal education.
Instead of reforming curriculum (read more on this at “American Education Reform”), we add days and hours to the time our kids spend away from their childhood.
In Europe, kids go to school when they are 7 y.o., and their minds are capable of abstract thinking, which is necessary for the process of learning math and science. And even then, they don’t spend more than 4 hrs in school and only 30 minutes on homework.
Until that age, the main learning is social and cultural, which occurs naturally during play time.
But we send our kids to pre-school at the age of 3.5, and to kindergarden as young as 4 y.o., cutting their time to learn to socialize (necessary for psychological health) to 1/2 the time they need.
Most of the kids that young find spending 6 hrs sitting torturous, and they are simply incapable of focusing for that prolonged period of time.
Then you have to add homework to that. My 4.5 y.o. son had to spend 45 minutes on largely meaningless homework.
2) But the main torture really comes in high-school.
Two kids of my close friends started specialized high-schools last year: the girl went to La Guardia (top New York School for artistic kids), and the boy went to famous Stuyvesant high-school.
Both of them have to get up at 5:30 am to get there (they live in Queens). Both of them get home at 5:30pm (that’s a 12 hrs day already), and then they have to do their homework.
Often they have to stay at their books till 3am, which means they get no more than 4 hrs of sleep on average.
BUT THESE ARE TEENAGERS WHO NEED TO SLEEP 9-10 HRS!
Have you heard of a sleep deprivation torture? How people go nuts from the lack of sleep?
When I met my husband, he has already developed mild depression from working 20 hrs/day 7days/wk during his first year in America. When our son was born, and was screaming every 45 minutes for almost a year (he had health issues), my husband almost went off the deep end, and I’ve lost good 10 points from my IQ on the loss of sleep account – and we were grown ups, in top athletic shape!
Kids who get into specialized high-schools are your brighter-than-average kids, and you would think they benefit from all this learning, even if at their sleep expense – until you find out what they are learning.
I was told, for instance, that at some point the kids at Stuyvesant and Bronx Science (another top school) have to learn some 64 forms of the ancient Chinese cast system (WHY? Who needs to know that except for scholars of Chinese history?). “But do you think they can point China on a map?”, asked me one of the moms of these high-schoolers.
This was a rhetorical question. I knew they cannot (for some reason, geography is not considered important in American education system).
On top of such rigorous schooling, the high-schoolers also have to study for their SAT tests. So if the first July past their h.s. junior year, these high-schoolers spent sleeping (almost 24 hrs/day), their next summer they are spending at their SAT books.
The girl started loosing her hair and developed headaches with nose-bleeds. I have not seen much of the boy this summer (we spend our summers in Catskills by the lake). He has no time for this at all.
I always thought my boy would start working during his summer vacation, once he turns 14 y.o. (I always thought that this would be very important and educational as the first step into the real world). But I am realizing now that the summers during high-school years are really no vacation at all, and, if anything, he would need to catch up on his sleep, if I want him psychologically sound.
After this kind of high-schooling, college would probably seem like a long vacation.
3) But then in college, our kids enter another psychologically dangerous zone:
Deprived of time to be kids and learning how to socialize, deprived of sleep, and having no practical knowledge of how to take care of themselves (how to cook, how to saw a button, etc.), because there was no time to learn this (the kids were stuffing their heads with disparate book knowledge), our brightest children are thrown together in a dorm with plenty of time to do all that.
But they don’t know how to! So they go on binge drinking, experiment with sex and drugs, screw their digestive systems with stale pizza and all the junk food they can get their hands on.
Heart-breaks are as common as drunken parties, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT LEARNED HOW TO SOCIALIZE while in safe environment of life within their family.
The only children, like my son, are even in the greater disadvantage. Siblings do provide some socializing education by simply being there all the time. Except that sibling socializing is based on rivalry and pekin order, so even those kids have some holes in their social education.
So my fellow Americans should not be so shocked at the high suicidal, homicidal, rape and drug/alcohol addiction rates among college students at all.
It is nothing but a consequence of all that schooling. And the sad icing on this poisonous cake is that these kids still cannot compete with European, Asian and other students around the world in terms of their actual practical knowledge needed in their chosen professions.
THAT IS BECAUSE THE CURRICULUM THEY ARE TAUGHT LACKS BOTH LOGIC AND CONSISTENCY.
4) Upon graduation, our brightests of the brightest go on to post-graduation education, like medical school for instance (like James Holmes).
This education is vigorous and expensive (nowadays, it is often indebting students for life), while it occurs biologically and psychologically during the time when human beings are genetically programmed to start families.
But these students have to cool it, as they don’t have financial and psychological capabilities (when the rest of the kids learned the sciences of romance and practical living, these kids were learning book knowledge).
5) Then they finally enter the grown up world of real work and spend next 5 yrs of so unlearning what their heads were stuffed with… With the exception of medical students. They start their residenture (like this poor James Holmes, I assume). Then they realize that the 4 years of their specialized high-school was just the first ring of hell. Everything pales in comparison with residenture.
They work 36 hrs straight, go home to drop dead on the bed, and their pager rings, calling them back to the hospital.
I know personally 2 people who went off the deep end during their residenture time.
Why Americans choose to train their doctors that way, beats me. When my child was young, and I was sleep deprived, my mind was filled with perpetual fog. I am not even talking about the times when I would buy groceries and leave them in the store, when I went to wash my hands in the public restroom and left there my diamond ring, etc., etc.. No, I am talking of the mind fog that makes solving even simple problems difficult.
These young doctors ARE EVEN MORE SLEEP DEPRIVED.
When you arrive in the emergency room because you are feeling so awful you are afraid you may die, you don’t even realize that the doc who is looking at you, trying to correctly diagnose your problem has not slept for 28 hrs, and his mind is FOGGY, VERY FOGGY.
Sure, you may say, if he prescribes me a wrong medicine or amputates the wrong leg, I am going to sue him for millions.
But would not you prefer the right medical treatment instead?
I am assuring you though, that every trip you take to that emergency room is like playing Russian roulette.
So WHY are we doing this to our doctors? Even truckers are required to take sleep stops every 12 hrs or so.
James Holmes went through all this, and thought he can go further.
But he could not. His mind snapped.
So instead of healing the multitude as he was planning to do with his life, he went and took a few lives instead.
We can blame him, our strong gun lobby, etc., etc..
But really, we should blame ourselves. Because we as a society have created an education system that turns out psychologically damaged individuals whose education is so full of knowledge holes that they still cannot compete with those bright foreigners we hire instead.

I was watching Shark Tank a few days ago. A guy from the middle of America came in with an invention for small trucks.
The invention was a useful one for truckers (I am not one of them), but required some serious investment.
The guy was adamant about producing his invention in America. He was talking about his hometown, where all the big employers have left, and unemployment and poverty are rampant. He was talking about his love for OUR country and that he dreams to contribute somehow to OUR prosperity, and to that of his hometown in particular.
The Sharks raised the issue of the costs of production in the U.S. (US) being much greater than that of overseas.
The guy countered, raising quality and trustworthiness issues with overseas production, citing some examples.
There was no doubt that the Sharks were impressed with the guy and his position. One of the Sharks actually cried remembering his dad, a factory worker, who was so proud of being a factory worker.
But none of them chose to invest in the guy’s invention out of concern that manufacturing it in the U.S. (US) would cost them more than that of overseas.
I understand their position, being a business woman myself, no matter how morally wrong that might be.
When I choose my contractors for a job, their rates are one of most important factors in my consideration. After all, I am in business to make money
Of course, the money I make are so slim (barely keeping my family above water), that I am in no position to follow my principles.
But the Sharks are. The Bush’s tax cuts, financial deregulations, and the NAFTA agreement (signed by Clinton) made them so much richer while the rest of us are so much poorer.
Yes, it’s true that the economy now is global and the labor market is in particular. Yes, Americans now compete for jobs with Chinese, Russians, Indians, etc., who can afford much lower wages. So the whatever jobs in America are left also offer lower wages (and that is how we get poorer).
As we get poorer, our government gets poorer (it’s income is our taxes). It can no longer offer comfortable retirement plans, etc., and must borrow to keep the poorest of the poor from hitting the pavement and rioting.
Talking to that guy, the Sharks cited Apple as an example of the company that manufactures offshore, yet employs 45,000 people in the U.S. thanks to great long-term planning.
But these 45,000 American employees are mainly salespeople who sell Apple products to us. As we get poorer (and we will – until the global labor market’s wages get equal everywhere, we are going to see our incomes slide), we would be able to afford iphones, Macs, ipads less and less (I cannot afford neither of them as we speak). Apple would have to then reduce its American sales force more and more, until it may get out of American market altogether. As its market shrinks, so will its production, and Apple itself will get poorer and poorer.
But that is really long term planning, and no business nowadays plans that far ahead.
Our “truck” guy is but a Don Quixote of our times. He is fighting the tsunami of changes that swept our world with the onset of the global economy.
I see Obama as such a Don Quixote as well. He is fighting the losing battle too, as he believes in compromises with the other side of the political isle to the point that he almost committed political suicide last August (remember the deficit ceiling debacle?). He seems to ignore the political reality, where Republicans are being ruled by 1 person, Grover Norquist, who is financed by the likes of brothers Koch, and the policies Republicans endorse and push are being carefully prepared and fed to them by ALEC, the group of 18 large corporations.
In such political reality, the welfare of the U.S. (US, the people) is pushed aside for the sake of winning the power and making more money for ALEC and the likes of Koch brothers (even though it is ultimately short-sighted goal).
One cannot even blame them. We all are faulty in that we want our prosperity now, counting that the future would take care of itself. This is true for Democrats like me just as much as it is true for Republicans.
Even though our money bills say “In God we trust”, we trust in money bills so much more.
It takes people with more money than their possible life span may require, like Warren Buffet, to raise above the Green God and put the welfare of their country first. But their voices are the lonely voices lost in the wilderness.
Everybody admires them and aspires after them, but no one hears them.
When Warren Buffet said that Bush’s tax cuts were intended to create the tide that lifted all boats, but in reality only all yachts were lifted, the yacht owners chose to ignore their idol.
The GOP now is months from nominating Mitt Romney, one of these yacht owners. He would surely uphold the policies that lifted his yacht. Even though his background shows more concern for the fellow Americans (like his health insurance reform in Massachusetts, for instance) then the greater majority of GOP leadership, one cannot forget that he is a Shark. He too would cry out of sympathy with a trucker and then send him away with nothing.
I’ve heard Obama talking about the same tax reform I’ve been screaming in the wilderness on these pages for years now: the reform where companies get financially rewarded for keeping jobs here and financially punished for sending them overseas. I am not counting on these reforms even if he gets to them (if he wins the election and has enough political capital to get the ball rolling), because he may compromise the life out of these reforms too – just as he did with health care, financial regulations, etc.
I think if our leaders cannot or are unwilling to take care of our country, we, the people, should start doing it ourselves. Please read New Economy, or Buy American, Stupid!

I am going to base my predictions for the year of 2012 on Sibli chart out of all other possible horoscopes of the U.S., since it appears to be most responsive to actual events.
As you may guess, 2012 is promising to be another interesting year.
Since 9/11/2001, every year has been interesting. Until then, I did not even care much about politics, economy, or even mundane astrology. Now that I am clearly part of the “99″%, my life is increasingly tied up with the socio-economic tides sweeping the planet. So now I am taking a closer look at the ominous 2012 – which, according to Maya people, signifies an end to a 5000+ years cycle of the human history.
While I have no doubt that the world is going to survive it, the world as we know it is already changing – just take the look around.
2012 is going to bring more changes, especially to the U.S., since we also have to go through presidential elections.
My money is on Obama, since his Vedic planetary cycles don’t show much change – it will continue to be difficult, unsettling and depressing for him.
Our country is bound to see more turmoil: February 2012 is going to see more “Occupy Wall Street” activity, as Uranus is going back to square off with the U.S. Venus, just as it did in September of 2011, when the movement took hold.
But there are going to be significant changes, as North Node is going over the ascendant in the Sibly chart.
In natal astrology, a Moon’s node going over ascendant or midheaven signifies drastic change in that person’s life. I don’t think it should be that much different in mundane astrology. So I wold expect significant changes for the U.S. that begin to mount as of mid-January.
A lot of it would have to do with economy, as Mars is turning retrograde on 1/24/12, slowing everything down business-wise. It will hold the world’s economy at stand-still until 4/14, when it finally goes direct.
It starts its retrograde motion in 23′ of Virgo, while sitting on the U.S.’ Neptune in 10th house of the Sibly chart. Neptune, meanwhile, is finishing going over the U.S.’ Moon, which it has been doing for most of 2011. I read it as confusion and deception at the helm of the U.S. government that is completely putting the country adrift, and the U.S.’ stand in the world comes into question once again. Quite possible, our credit rating may get downgraded again.
People are going to take to the street in greater numbers in February as Uranus squares the U.S. Venus and the Sun goes over the U.S. Moon.
Since Saturn is squaring the U.S. Pluto in the 2nd house (financial assets}, the dismal economic prospects are more than certain through out most of 2012, especially through the first half of the year.
Even though Mars goes direct in April, Venus turns retrograde on5/15/12 and until 6/27/12, when it turns direct, we find ourselves in socio-economic la-la land.
So, January – June of 2012, the business community is likely to find itself hang in limbo of uncertainties. Only as we touch the terra firma in July, we might be able to begin to assess the damage.
Meanwhile, Uranus and Pluto begin to square each other in the sky in June and keep on doing so through early October.
Since each of these planets is capable to bring a revolution on its own, 2 of them are bound to stir mankind in every corner of the world. Serious wars/ accidents/ natural phenomena are also quite possible when these 2 planets are at each other throats. Iran is going to be most affected, if one of the mundane chart I found for it is correct – since it places Iran’s Moon right under transiting Uranus and being squared by transiting Pluto.
China is also likely to be in the news because of sudden transformations, as its Sun is being opposed by Uranus and squared by Pluto at that time.
European Union, Greece and Israel don’t get a direct planetary hit, so they will pull through OK for now.
For the U.S., the Fall of 2012 brings more positive outlook and, in December, we may even begin to feel that troubles are behind us.
Of course, Pluto cruising through Capricorn until 2024 is not going to let us off the hook in 12/12. It will ensure that the world’s governments and corporations transform themselves completely by then, so it can begin to decide the human kind’s survival while moving through Aquarius.
But as far as 2012 is concerned, it is going to be one of the most tumultuous and difficult years in history, yet it does not spell the end of anything – not even the end of our troubles.
