Many Perspectives of Attitude

By living today, we build what become tomorrow. We must know what was within Yesterday, to understand what we are faced with today.

how many ways is it sold, and by how many means is it bought?
the circle which wobbles as it spin....

---------------------------------------------------------------
would you buy a car that tells you when you can drive it ? would you buy a soda that has conditions on when you can drink it ?

Again, "bought passion" is everywhere, shaped by condition and regulate by a price, and rarely is it found to last without maintenance cost..

Is it likely that we as human beings have not evolved to grow beyond the drive to barter, bargain and sell passion unto each other ?

do we even know when we are bartering and bargaining, buying and selling, our passion unto each other?

is it possible that we've not yet learned the depths of sharing, without there being a barter point, and a bargaining level?

do you know how much it impacts your world, do you know how much it influences how you interact, and with whom you interact ?

how many ways is it sold & how many means is it bought?

What's in the beauty of a relationship

It's such a simple premise. Its such an amazing engaging realism. It's such a delight that unfolds what hearts can desire.

"the simplicity of being together, simply because you want to be so". the agenda is to share and, the goal entails doing so by ones own motivation to simply care, to share.

why do we destroy it with measurement of what that care should look like and, what rituals we claim it should engage to perform.

people have traveled the world and, endured many journeys of amazing feats, just to be with another, "simply because they wanted to be" - many go off to their task, which may take them miles away and, even continents afar, but, they find their way back "simply because they want to". some shape and re-shape their relationships, in every form imaginable, some make understanding in a wide variety of ways, 'just because they want to. They find ways to share what they can, when they can, "just because they want to"..
They don't need to coerce one another, nor issue each other threats and ultimatums, nor do they put conditions that force a sacrifice, which does not regard the others individual life and work. they learn to find reasons to make time, when they can find time, to share time. Just because they want to.

Some measure everything, until there is nothing left to measure, and they toss away a treasure of the heart, with the slashes on their measuring tool, showing them how much they have pushed away, and they measure still; until there is nothing but their own anguish left, to become their measure.

many live without the openness to share, but want to secure something they cannot afford the time to be the jailer to contain it. yet, they forget to 'be open in mind, and expressive of voice, to learn to craft understanding, which supports the open avenue to share.

We indulge to gain knowledge about a great many things, and then we fall foolish to turn our hearts love over to the illusion of emotion, when we know even in ourselves, the emotions are like an oceans tide, sometime its' high, and sometimes it's low, and sometimes it crashes the shores, and sometimes, it bathes it with the soft and soothing flow making smooth beaches and, beautiful sea spaces that are purely astounding.

but even so, like such things, if one has the understanding of a high peak, they can stand upon it, and marvel at the crashing tides, and not loose appreciation for the oceans flow.. such height is none other than, understandings elevation.

Shall we allow nature to teach us, or do we ignore the lessons it unfolds, while it shows us much and, give even the melody of the singing birds to sooth us as we indulge the blessings within the lessons.

Isn't it quite amazing, rarely does a bird starve or, the animals in the forest go without finding means of nourishment. Does it not tell us that we may need to respect, much more than we expect.

if so, we may learn much about, "What's in the beauty of a relationship".

Migrants sell up and flee Arizona ahead of crackdown

Nicaraguan mother Aguilar hawks a television set and a few clothes on the baking sidewalk outside her west Phoenix apartment block.

A few paces up the street, her undocumented Mexican neighbor Villasenor touts a kitchen table, some chairs and a few dishes as her family scrambles to get out of Arizona ahead of a looming crackdown on illegal immigrants.

"Everyone is selling up the little they have and leaving," said Villasenor, 31, who is headed for Pennsylvania. "We have no alternative. They have us cornered."

The two women are among scores of illegal immigrant families across Phoenix hauling the contents of their homes into the yard this weekend as they rush to sell up and get out before the state law takes effect on Thursday.

The law, the toughest imposed by any U.S. state to curb illegal immigration, seeks to drive more than 400,000 undocumented day laborers, landscapers, house cleaners, chambermaids and other workers out of Arizona, which borders Mexico.

It makes being an illegal immigrant a state crime and requires state and local police, during lawful contact, to investigate the status of anyone they reasonably suspect of being an illegal immigrant.

* In a sign of a gathering exodus, Mexican businesses from grocers and butcher shops to diners and beauty salons have shut their doors in recent weeks as their owners and leave.

On Saturday and Sunday, Reuters counted dozens of impromptu yard sales in Latino neighborhoods in central and west Phoenix/

"They wanted to drive Hispanics out of Arizona and they have succeeded even before the law even comes into effect," said Aguilar, 28, a mother of three young who was also offering a few cherished pictures and a stereo at one of five sales on the same block.

She said she had taken in just $20 as "everyone is selling and nobody wants to buy

________________________

What a paradox, surely some of the same people who want them gone, must have hired them, or they would not have had a job.

* It's kinda reminiscent of the round up of Japanese during World War II. and not much different from the era of the 'black codes" and jim crow segregation mentality.. that barred blacks from many areas and other things, and both the Japanese and Blacks were American citizens.
guess it shows, you can't put anything past what some Americans will do, and repeat doing if they can. this same process was done to Mexicans in the 1930's, and the process repeats itself in 2010.

I'm not advocating illegal immigration, unfortunately, a great many people welcomed them here, in their desire to get cheap labor.. as long as they could afford to 'use" them.. now they toss them out like a dirty dish towel, they can't afford to use anymore. they ere happy to let them cook dinner, raise their and look after their , have a room in the family home and anything else they wanted to gain benefit from. When Arizona was making a killing with mexican labor to build all those houses in the 1990's and early 2000's, they loved Mexicans, and they'd pick them up in front of hardware stores, ask them if they had friends who wanted to come and work for them, and they solicited them, as if they were an available cheap labor servant pool, they could use and treat any way they wanted to.

but, also, with the people being Illegal, they knew one day they would get caught, some married Americans some had American born babies, and some sent money to Mexico and bought homes and land, and set up businesses, the unfortunate situation is, some had many babies and put those babies on a variety of state resources, by a variety of means. But many are simply hard working people. but then there is the gang element, where some of the gang mentality dominated some areas, and many things. but even on the drug avenue, there were many Americans hunting down Mexicans looking to buy drugs, so.. this is a mixed problem, because it was solicited as much is it was an illegal intrusion into the US, but the solicitation was like a magnet.. silently inviting more to crash the borders looking for opportunity. it was up to the Illegals, to police themselves, to curb violence and crime and the escalation of it, because they knew it was attracting high level attention and frustrating the American citizens, but they did not do enough to try and make their areas crime free zones.

Mexico has some responsibility in this mess as well, they are high on the list of trading partners, with the US, which means they did not put their money to use, to build for their people, yet they boast a high number of millionaires in their country, but they don't invest to build things, when they know how to do it, or they could not have come here and built things for those who hired them to do so.

The governing bodies in Mexico, let the cartels go crazy, and they let corruption defeat their system of governing. and then they do not develop the infrastructure of industrial things, to truly capitalize on attracting industry.

It's such a mess of a situation, where there are few innocent parties in the over-all.

The 22 statistics detailed here prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the middle class is being systematically wiped out of existence in America.

The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer at a staggering rate. Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most prosperous middle class in the history of the world, but now that is changing at a blinding pace.

So why are we witnessing such fundamental changes? Well, the globalism and "free trade" that our politicians and business leaders insisted would be so good for us have had some rather nasty side effects. It turns out that they didn't tell us that the "global economy" would mean that middle class American workers would eventually have to directly compete for jobs with people on the other side of the world where there is no minimum wage and very few regulations. The big global corporations have greatly benefited by exploiting third world labor pools over the last several decades, but middle class American workers have increasingly found things to be very tough.

Here are the statistics to prove it:

• 83 percent of all U.S. stocks are in the hands of 1 percent of the people.
• 61 percent of Americans "always or usually" live paycheck to paycheck, which was up from 49 percent in 2008 and 43 percent in 2007.
• 66 percent of the income growth between 2001 and 2007 went to the top 1% of all Americans.
• 36 percent of Americans say that they don't contribute anything to retirement savings.
• A staggering 43 percent of Americans have less than $10,000 saved up for retirement.
• 24 percent of American workers say that they have postponed their planned retirement age in the past year.
• Over 1.4 million Americans filed for personal bankruptcy in 2009, which represented a 32 percent increase over 2008.
• Only the top 5 percent of U.S. households have earned enough additional income to match the rise in housing costs since 1975.
• For the first time in U.S. history, banks own a greater share of residential housing net worth in the United States than all individual Americans put together.
• In 1950, the ratio of the average executive's paycheck to the average worker's paycheck was about 30 to 1. Since the year 2000, that ratio has exploded to between 300 to 500 to one.
• As of 2007, the bottom 80 percent of American households held about 7% of the liquid financial assets.
• The bottom 50 percent of income earners in the United States now collectively own less than 1 percent of the nation’s wealth.
• Average Wall Street bonuses for 2009 were up 17 percent when compared with 2008.
• In the United States, the average federal worker now earns 60% MORE than the average worker in the private sector.
• The top 1 percent of U.S. households own nearly twice as much of America's corporate wealth as they did just 15 years ago.
• In America today, the average time needed to find a job has risen to a record 35.2 weeks.
• More than 40 percent of Americans who actually are employed are now working in service jobs, which are often very low paying.
• or the first time in U.S. history, more than 40 million Americans are on food stamps, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture projects that number will go up to 43 million Americans in 2011.
• This is what American workers now must compete against: in China a garment worker makes approximately 86 cents an hour and in Cambodia a garment worker makes approximately 22 cents an hour.
• Approximately 21 percent of all in the United States are living below the poverty line in 2010 - the highest rate in 20 years.
• Despite the financial crisis, the number of millionaires in the United States rose a whopping 16 percent to 7.8 million in 2009.
• The top 10 percent of Americans now earn around 50 percent of our national income.

is a continual process some engage. For the willing, Intellect reaches for understanding, and in doing so, it is enriched within gaining perspectives for the development of awareness. it is the process of and for growth in individuals who choose to enable themselves for growth.

Life continues to be a march of progress, for those who seek progress, change is ever-present to those who do not beat it back, and the developmental process for and of growth, builds a better world, for those who can get beyond themselves.

the process is always being engaged. As people we must be pro-active in what become the actions of change, and not let 'reactions' be the only pathway to prompt change. there must be pro-active efforts pursued and engaged.
