Hell
"God has a way of standing before the nations with judgment, and it seems that I can hear God saying to America, 'You're too arrogant!   And if you don't change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power, and I'll place it in the hands of a nation that doesn't even know my name.   Be still and know that I'm God.'"

Martin Luther King, It's a Dark Day In Our Nation


“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who murder your prophets and stone those sent to save you. How often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Behold, your house is now yours, but is made desolate."

Matthew 23:37-39


"The more power a government has the more it can act arbitrarily according to the whims and desires of the elite, and the more it will make war on others and murder its foreign and domestic subjects... Power will achieve its murderous potential. It simply waits for an excuse, an event of some sort, an assassination, a massacre in a neighboring country, an attempted coup, a famine, or a natural disaster, to justify the beginning of murder en masse."

R. J. Rummel, Death by Government: A History of Mass Murder and Genocide Since 1900


“Power attracts the corruptible. Suspect any who seek it.”

Frank Herbert, Dune


"Fascism is capitalism plus murder."

Upton Sinclair

Such a worrier I seem today. for no one is being murdered yet, right?  Or at least anyone that matters.  Just the usual collateral damage of empire.

Stocks backed up a little today, led by the tech heavy NDX, which had been the lead on the latest bubble up without pause.

I don't know if this is The top, but it was sure looking toppy in short term grossly overbought conditions.

Even the markets need to exhale now and then.

Silver put a move on 17 today, but then settled back down to around 16.70. Gold was leashed all day.

The Dollar lost a little from yesterday.

Need little, want less, love more. For those that abide in love abide in God, and God in them.

Have a pleasant evening.
