Moonlit Rainbow

Moonlit Rainbow

colors dancing in the dark

clouds gently cup the face of the Moon
as She looks down with lovingkindness

while the Magician stands in the Sacred Place
raising His staff in solemn ritual

Love meeting Love

the light of Man and Moon entwine
in the darkness
(the Moonlit darkness)
broken only by the shadow of an owl
soaring overhead

as He draws down the Moon
She draws up the Magician
a door between realms opens

and they meet
in silent ritual
in timeless ritual

Love meeting Love

where Dance and Music were first conceived

colors dancing in the dark

Moonlit Rainbow

It Ain’t Over ‘Til it’s Over, and Even Then it Ain’t Over

Peter Pan refused to grow up. Hillary Clinton refuses to give up. In latest twist on the campaign that wouldn’t die, Hillary is now going after superdelegates committed to Obama.

“One thing about superdelegates is that they can change their minds,” she told reporters aboard her campaign plane Sunday night.

The former first lady enters this week with an insurgent strategy not only to win over undecided superdelegates but to peel away Obama’s support from those party leaders and elected officials who already have committed to back him for the nomination.

Clinton’s strongest argument for becoming the nominee is that she leads in the popular vote. That is, after you count Florida, where neither candidate campaigned, and Michigan, where Obama voluntarily removed his name from the ballot, leaving Hillary to run unopposed. After initially agreeing that those states didn’t count, she now agressively argues that their votes should be counted, giving her the “lead” in popular votes. She somehow manages to divine the popular vote from states with caucuses to arrive at her popular vote totals giving her the lead.

All in all, it sounds like Hillary is playing from the NeoCon playbook: if you can’t beat ’em, change the rules.

Bush+Nazi Germany=Profits!

The Bush family fortune may be based, at least in part, from war profiteers dealing with Nazi Germany.

George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

Bush tossed out oblique slurs about appeasement, but his grandfather actually helped the Nazi war effort!
