A Letter to Dr. Ben Carson:

Now This Future.  This is a wonderful idea, a wonderful help to those less fortunate.

When I heard you speak I was shocked to hear you say that being poor is just a state of mind? That must also mean that being rich is also a state of mind and never the two shall meet, although you say your own mother had to work two jobs so that you could live a better life. How lucky your mother was to actually be living in an area where jobs were plentiful and there were jobs.

Educate yourself about the poor.

Take one man who lives in a rural area. Those factories have gone and there is one church, one store, and one garage. He has no money to get the bus out of town. So he walks 30 miles to a bigger town and arrives homeless, hungry and of course dirty.

The man finds a job dish washing at 7 bucks an hour 6.00 am to 6.00 pm in a 24 hour restaurant seven days a week and is paid every week. He does get a meal and the use of the wash room but at 6 pm he has to go out without money and a place to stay.

Of course I forgot to let you know that in order for you to get a job you need an address. There may be those who look at you and have empathy something you have to learn Ben. Also if you are given a cheque you will have no bank account.

Those one weeks can make or break you, there may be shelters or churches that help but imagine every day without a home?

I don’t want to hear about the labor laws dish washers are a dime a dozen and if you stick to it the boss may turn a blind eye. So the first week he earns $588.00 dollars he can afford a flop house, terrible conditions, and people can rob you, and they are usually at the rough end of town so you are not safe.

One step taken with hope easily dashed if there is no help.

The Titanic sank and Noah’s Ark did not.

Ben did you get help to succeed or did you do it alone without family help?

One more thing I want to let you know  about on the map above, you can see all the depressed areas where taxes are lower not at all like New York. There is very little work, education is poor, hospitals are lacking and the housing is too.With low taxes there is little to spend or fund and there should be. Surely you can see that or are you in a ‘Rich State of Mind’.

Now The Change Take a look. With a home jobs are needed. Co-operatives are businesses owned and run by and for their members. Whether the members are the customers, employees or residents they have an equal say in what the business does and a share in the profits.

As businesses driven by values not just profit, co-operatives share internationally agreed principles and act together to build a better world through co-operation.

The International Co-operative Alliance is an independent, non-governmental organisation established in 1895 to unite, represent and serve co-operatives worldwide.  The Alliance provides a global voice and forum for knowledge, expertise and co-ordinated action for and about co-operatives.

In 1995, the Alliance adopted the revised Statement on the Co-operative Identity which contains the definition of a co-operative, the values of co-operatives, and the seven co-operative principles as described below.

Co-operative values

Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.

Co-operative Principles

The co-operative principles are guidelines by which co-operatives put their values into practice.

1. Voluntary and Open Membership

Co-operatives are voluntary organisations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

2. Democratic Member Control

Co-operatives are democratic organisations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary co-operatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and co-operatives at other levels are also organised in a democratic manner.

3. Member Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their co-operative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the co-operative. Members usually receive limited compensation, if any, on capital subscribed as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing their co-operative, possibly by setting up reserves, part of which at least would be indivisible; benefiting members in proportion to their transactions with the co-operative; and supporting other activities approved by the membership.

4. Autonomy and Independence

Co-operatives are autonomous, self-help organisations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements with other organisations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their co-operative autonomy.

5. Education, Training and Information

Co-operatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. They inform the general public – particularly young people and opinion leaders – about the nature and benefits of co-operation.

6. Co-operation among Co-operatives

Co-operatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the co-operative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

7. Concern for Community

Co-operatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.

You have to care for others and not just yourself and your riches.

GOAT FARM– milk-cheese-Greek yogurt-factories.

SOFT FRUIT FARM-berries of all kinds-jam-fruit juices-factories.

KNITTING– clothes for upper crust stores in New York.

Why Qatar is the focus of terrorism claims?

Why Qatar is the focus of terrorism claims?

Doha has strongly denied Riyadh’s accusations, and said it has taken more robust counter-terrorism measures than some of its neighbors.

Saudi suspicions

Yet despite leading the opposition to Qatar’s financial activities – and no doubt emboldened by the recent visit to Riyadh by US President Donald Trump – Saudi Arabia has not escaped similar criticism.

Fifteen of the 19 aircraft hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi citizens; diplomatic cables from 2009 published by Wikileaks reflect regular US frustration at the difficulty of persuading the Saudi government to treat terrorist financing donors as a strategic priority; and the country has used its considerable hydrocarbon wealth to propagate its fundamentalist Wahhabi strain of Islam via schools and mosques around the world which have been accused by some of being a source of extremism.

Although a small number of individuals and entities in Saudi Arabia are alleged to have financed terrorism, the country is seemingly on much more supportive ground than Qatar, and is Recognised for its efforts.

The Beast is Steve Bannon.

Steve Bannon Played Trump, Now Trump Is Struggling For Legitimacy

Every single person is different, there were Germans who hated Hitler, there are Syrians who hate Bashar al-Assad  the one reason 26 million Syrians are refugees and we did not look at the terrible war but the sickness that rose from it Al-Qaeda who were the be all and end all of EVIL.Bashar_al-Assad_in_Russia_(2015-10-21)_08

Would you want to leave the home you love and travel through hell to find safety? NO and not everyone is an evil but Steve Bannon loves a fight he loves to stir things up and the delight in his life is to throw the mud and brainwash those who are uneducated, scared and poor and believe every single word Trump and Bannon, history will see what happens but if you need a doctor in the USA will have emigrated and may be a Muslim.

Steve Bannon  In order to make up a story you have make up an enemy and Bannon hated all Muslims.

Trump’s entire speech to Muslim world

For some reason the above links would not show on You-tube so I did it this way.
Please understand that our culture is not the Saudi Arabian culture and they think that they are supreme in the world having lived in a YWCA in the UK when I was in my 20’s what amazed me was we were all treated as servants no matter what country we came from all we did was shake our heads and move on, there was one who was kind but she had been educated in London England.

This week’s bombing in Manchester, England, was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamist terrorism is ongoing. And President Trump’s journey to the Middle East illustrated yet again how the country central to the spread of this terrorism, Saudi Arabia, has managed to evade and deflect any responsibility for it. In fact, Trump has given Saudi Arabia a free pass and a free hand in the region.

This week’s bombing in Manchester, England, was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamist terrorism is ongoing. And President Trump’s journey to the Middle East illustrated yet again how the country central to the spread of this terrorism, Saudi Arabia, has managed to evade and deflect any responsibility for it. In fact, Trump has given Saudi Arabia a free pass and a free hand in the region.

The facts are well-known. For five decades, Saudi Arabia has spread its narrow, puritanical and intolerant version of Islam — originally practiced almost nowhere else — across the Muslim world. Osama bin Laden was Saudi, as were 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists.

And we know, via a leaked email from former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, in recent years the Saudi government, along with Qatar, has been “providing clandestine financial and logistic support to [the Islamic State] and other radical Sunni groups in the region.” Saudi nationals make up the second-largest group of foreign fighters in the Islamic State and, by some accounts, the largest in the terrorist group’s Iraqi operations. The kingdom is in a tacit alliance with al-Qaeda in Yemen.

The Islamic State draws its beliefs from Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabi version of Islam. As the former imam of the kingdom’s Grand Mosque said last year, the Islamic State “exploited our own principles, that can be found in our books. . . . We follow the same thought but apply it in a refined way.” Until the Islamic State could write its own textbooks for its schools, it adopted the Saudi curriculum as its own.

Saudi money is now transforming European Islam. Leaked German intelligence reports show that charities “closely connected with government offices” of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait are funding mosques, schools and imams to disseminate a fundamentalist, intolerant version of Islam throughout Germany.

In Kosovo, the New York Times’ Carlotta Gall describes the process by which a 500-year-old tradition of moderate Islam is being destroyed. “From their bases, the Saudi-trained imams propagated Wahhabism’s tenets: the supremacy of Shariah law as well as ideas of violent jihad and takfirism, which authorizes the killing of Muslims considered heretics for not following its interpretation of Islam. . . . Charitable assistance often had conditions attached. Families were given monthly stipends on the condition that they attended sermons in the mosque and that women and girls wore the veil.”

Saudi Arabia’s government has begun to slow many of its most egregious practices. It is now being run, de facto, by a young, intelligent reformer, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who appears to be refreshingly pragmatic, in the style of Dubai’s visionary leader, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum. But so far the Saudi reforms have mostly translated into better economic policy for the kingdom, not a break with its powerful religious establishment.

The United States has now signed up for Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy — a relentless series of battles against Shiites and their allies throughout the Middle East. That will enmesh Washington in a never-ending sectarian struggle, fuel regional instability and complicate its ties with countries such as Iraq that want good relations with both sides. But most important, it will do nothing to address the direct and ongoing threat to Americans — jihadist terrorism. I thought that Trump’s foreign policy was going to put America first, not Saudi Arabia.

There are some of us that talk and do nothing, some of us that want to do something and write about it and some of us who do not care. I care. Trump is sick. His father had dementia.

Adnan Khashoggi (Arabic: عدنان خاشقجي‎‎, Turkish: Adnan Kaşıkçı; 25 July 1935 – 6 June 2017) was a Saudi Arabian billionaire international businessman, best known for his involvement in arms dealing. He is estimated to have had a peak net worth of around US$4 billion in the early 1980s.

Khashoggi was born in Mecca, the son of Muhammad Khashoggi, who was King Abdul Aziz Al Saud’s personal doctor. His family is of Turkish origin. Adnan Khashoggi’s sister was author Samira Khashoggi Fayed who married businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed and was the mother of Dodi Fayed. Another sister, Soheir Khashoggi, is a well-known Arab writer (Mirage, Nadia’s Song, Mosaic).

Khashoggi was educated at Victoria College in Alexandria, Egypt, and the American universities California State University, Chico, Ohio State, and Stanford. Khashoggi left his studies in order to seek his fortune in business.
