Winds Of Change by Warren Buffett

A quick piece by Warren Buffett, sent as an email. Considering the current status, it's worth a least a quick perusal.
"Winds of Change"...

Don't Allow The Dead To Arise On November Fifth

Remember, remember, the fifth of November...don't allow Hynes to be a contender.

Apologies for butchering that little rhyme.

What else happened on that day in time?

From Wikipedia:

November 5 is the 309th day of the year (310th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 56 days remaining until the end of the year.

Are The GMO Ballot Initiatives Simply Gatekeeping?

FrankenFoods/GMOs will NEVER be equivalent to conventionally/organically-produced crops.

I can state that as a certainty.

The "science" of GMOs dictates that their crops can never be equivalent to non-GMO crops.

The Visitor Who Won't Leave

"I'll give up the position of Kings County District Attorney when you pry (or take) it from my cold, dead hands."'s kind of looking that way, isn't it?

I was very pleased with the outcome last month in the primary when I woke up later that evening. However, one saying kept creeping around in my mind:

Let's Try Banking For We The People


This morning, I began working on some PCs that were in need of upgrading. As they are being upgraded, I found myself with a moment to check some things out.

Big Issues in the Mayoral Race by Larry Littlefield caught my eye.

We do have a serious problem, and we need something in the way of a working remedy, not just for New York, but for America.

I read a piece by Ellen Brown, and I want to share that with you all.

Is Hynes Pulling An End Run Around The Will Of The Voters In Brooklyn?

I wrote in my last piece regarding the primaries; how I woke up after 11:00 PM to find out that Ken Thompson had beaten incumbent Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes, among other triumphs.

It was a great day.

I thought to myself, in anticipation of the changes, that a number of people would see in their lives; notably, John Giuca and his mother, Doreen Giuliano, John Kennedy O'Hara, Jabbar Collins, David Ranta, Jeffrey Deskovic, Derrick Hamilton and Samuel Kellner, to name just a few.

A Breeze Blows Out Of Brooklyn

I wish to first offer my congratulations to the winners - Letitia James, Laurie Cumbo, Scott Stringer, and especially to Bill de Blasio and Ken Thompson.

What a fantastic thing to wake up to at 11:00 PM!

GMOs/WAR - What Are They Good For? NOTHING

Happy Friday, dear readers!

Bill de Blasio is standing tall in the polls, with a scant number of days left until the primary.

Let's look for the newspapers that endorsed Christine Quinn to make an attempt at derailing his campaign.

Let's be ready to fight back.

Similarly - what dirty tricks will Breezy Point Joe pull out to steal the office of the District Attorney of Kings County away from Ken Thompson?

Once again, let's be ready.

Labor Day Weekend is upon us. I hope that everyone has something fun awaiting them.

The Patriot's Quandary

How strong are your convictions?

Are you familiar with the saying, "In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned.  When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

That was penned by Samuel Clemens, known colloquially as Mark Twain (Notebook, 1935).

Don't Waste Your Beautiful Minds On Garbage

Last Thursday, I was saddened to discover that Abe George was no longer running for the office of Brooklyn District Attorney. I heard the news just as it was being announced over the airwaves that evening. That sadness, however, was mitigated by the idea that now we are going to bear witness to quite the event: Hynes vs. Thompson, with Abe George in Thompson's corner.

Let's Keep It Cool


I'm just going to share a letter with you in response to an article on Al Jazeera that I saw the other day:
