Mele Kalikimaka ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We just received a couple of Christmas gifts from our friends in Lake Oswego.  One of them was a hand made ornament, a chicken sewn out of a red and white floral patterned cloth.  On Hawaii, chickens are everywhere, especially on Kawaii where there are no natural predators for the wild chickens.  The Hawaiians do not think of them as food.

A Brit named Cooke explored the Pacific islands three times and on his third lap he was killed by natives on a Hawaiian island.  I think that was in 1799.  He was trying to kidnap the king, who was clueless.  Empire builders like to start by kidnapping the king.  I just finished reading Sapiens by Harari and he speaks of the progress of empires around the world.  The Aztecs and then the Incas were enslaved by small bands of Europeans who landed and said "We come in peace.  Take us to your ruler."  They were taken to the rulers and promptly captured them, stole their wealth and enslaved their people.  If we are to take any lessons from this, it might be to immediately slaughter any godlike strangers that show up asking for our leaders.

I meant what you said, not what i said. Thank you.

The right wing seems to have this nightmare that they will be inundated and overwhelmed by the poor of the world. They want to think that we agree with them. Brexit and Trump suggest that they have been successful in manipulating that agreement.

Someday, i hope soon, the 99+% will figure out that they have more in common with each other than they do with the -1%.

I read somewhere that the meek will inherit the earth.
