An Angel’s envy


Wonderful

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Looking at your dwellings
Houses and farms
Mind wonders
About the lives you live
Full of hope
Amazing skills
Then we come around
Good or bad news
Changing your views
Amending your fate
Habits you hate
Make you believe
Or devoid of faith
Bed of flowers
Mourning wreath
We live eternity
You, a moment or two
Still, that much happiness?
May we have it too!!

Facebook Promote The Oldest Anti-Jewish Libel: Eric Lee


Engage

This is a cross-post by Eric Lee

I learned this morning that Facebook has a page devoted to “Jewish ritual murder” which I found hard to believe — so I checked and found it’s true.

So, as one does, I used Facebook’s complaint procedure to formally report harassment.  After all, I do feel harassed — as a Jew and a human being — by people promoting vile anti-Jewish propaganda.

It took Facebook 32 minutes to respond, which is great.

Good to see that they care about racism and antisemitism and are as keen as I am to … wait a minute … here’s a screenshot of their response:

Amanda Todd’s mom: ‘This is truly a day that we’ve been waiting for’


Global News

VANCOUVER – Amanda Todd’s mother, Carol, fought back tears and wiped her eyes through a news conference Thursday afternoon about a man being arrested in connection with the online bullying of Amanda Todd.

It was revealed on Thursday that a 35-year-old man living in the Netherlands was arrested in January. Five charges have now been laid against him by BC Crown Counsel, including one count of Internet luring and one count of possession of child pornography, among others.

“This is truly a day that we’ve been waiting for,” said Carol Todd. “I always knew deep in my heart that what my daughter told was the truth.”

The man, who RCMP have not named to protect the integrity of the Dutch investigation, reportedly pressured his victims, including Amanda, to perform sexual acts on webcam and recorded the images.

Insp. Paulette Friell, with the Coquitlam RCMP, said an investigation was launched in December…

Outrage Over Obamacare Is Nothing Compared With FDR?s New Deal (via Moyers & Company)

Every baby step toward guaranteeing American working people a minimum of economic security with new social insurance programs has been greeted with howls of horror and outrage — and predictions that the end of the Republic is near. Every new addition?

TURNING OUR DREAM METAPHORS IN TO SPIRITUAL REALITY, AND TURNING OUR SPIRITUAL REALITY IN TO LIFE WISDOM

Going beyond reason

Imagination it’s like a musical instrument all Men posses,

The Language of Metaphor

Metaphor is a figure Rhetoric of identifying a real term (R) with one imaginary (I) between which there is a similarity or analogy: Metaphor comes from Greek meta (outside or beyond) and pherein to move. To move a meaning beyond a boundary of reason, to a place of the Imagination by analogy, and similitude.

Viewed as an aspect of speech and writing, metaphor qualifies as style, in particular, style characterized by a type of analogy. An expression (word, phrase) that by implication suggests the likeness of one entity to another entity gives style to an item of speech or writing, whether the entities consist of objects, events, ideas, activities, attributes, or almost anything expressible in language.
