Hospitals & Asylums 






 August 2009


I got to camp out and watch the Perseid Meteor shower this year.  I must have fallen asleep before the peak.  Despite a waning moon it was supposed to be a good year for viewing the meteors.  I saw ten or twenty meteors, mostly radiating from a point a little bit to the east of the North star.  There were odd balls that went in different directions and one spectacular bolide, that was ten times larger and brighter than the brightest star, crossed the sky in a westerly direction and ended in a spectacular explosion.  Walking back to town the next morning I met a friendly guy on the trail and we talked and he gave me his business card, he is an artist, oil painter and stained glass maker, and an outdoor enthusiast.  I called him and we have become great friends, going for several hikes and sharing meals.  He renewed my enthusiasm in natural health foods and I have been shopping and cooking in small quantities to elude the roommates who monopolized the fridge.  I feel great; I just wish rice and beans didn’t cause gas.  On the topic of roommates, the mean ones moved out at the end of the month and I am the house boss for the new lease.  Things are looking up, I have a desk now and I hope it will help me to be more prolific.


This month I sorted through the lies and propaganda regarding the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development with the blessing of Pope Benedict XVI to enable the international community to gain a modicum of mastery over the international economic system.  Despite dire predictions of a 2.6% decline in gross world product and 3.9% decline in per capita income the United States reports a decline of only 1% and after my report the press reported that the Europe and Japan reported similar returns to normalcy with hope of positive economic growth in the third quarter.  Whether or not this translates into an improved economy in developing countries is unclear, and cause for concern.  In past economic crisis it is the poor in developing countries who are hit the hardest.  They do not have social safety nets to rely on in periods of unemployment and the resulting malnutrition can have permanent effects on their bodies and minds.  The number of people suffering hunger from extreme poverty of less than $1 a day increased from around 800 million to 1.2 billion.  The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) call for a reduction to 600 million by 2015.  The first article this month disseminates the propaganda regarding the World Financial and Economic Crisis and the sixth draft of Chapter 5 on International Development brings these findings to focus on achieving the MDGs.


So long as there are no new bailouts or virulent propagandas pertaining to the bailout the crisis should be over.  The question I wish to pose is do the United Nations want to ameliorate the humanitarian consequences of the economic crisis and show positive economic growth for 2009?  My plan to appreciate developing nation currencies would increase the purchasing power of people in developing nations so they could afford 33% more imported foodstuffs and technology and strengthen their domestic economy and financial sectors while the industrialized nations would improve their balance of trade, export industry and employment.  Appreciating 15% of the world economy by 33% would increase the overall Gross World Product (GWP) from $64 trillion to $67 trillion.  Thus, so long as macroeconomic behavior continued to abide by the international economic rules, and did not become more corrupt, and in fact took steps against the judicial corruption cracking the piggy bank, the theological battle with the number of the beast would be won.  The Millennium could begin anew and international economic cooperation would have a powerful new weapon for global income equality.


On a solemn note, the obituaries took a turn for the political.  Eunice Kennedy Schriver, a Kennedy family member by marriage and relative of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s wife, passed away at age 88 on August 11.  She was followed shortly thereafter with the death of Edward Kennedy at age 77 on August 26.  Although a son of his, Patrick J. Kennedy, continues the Kennedy political legacy in the House of Representatives, Edward Kennedy is the last of the famous Kennedy brothers to be assassinated.  He succumbed to brain cancer after a year of struggle.  His passing is a terrible loss for America.  He may have been the only Democrat who could be trusted to legislate health and welfare.  He survived bone cancer in 1974.  His family had a marvelous way of hosting parties for the doctors to come and suggest treatment that patients should emulate in their search for the truth, in a second or fifth opinion.  His life ended shortly after he was given the Congressional Freedom Medal by the President.  The nominees included several renowned cancer researchers, a mad scientist is however a far more ferocious beast than a quack.  Let us pray that medical science will be liberated from the Democratic and Republican (DR) health care reform agenda that took the lives of several famous people before taking that of the one wise Democrat, so that the truth will heal our society, and win Hillary Clinton the Vice-Presidency.


Disseminating the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development HA-14-8-09


The financial crisis has spread from industrialized colonial powers to become a full blown global economic crisis that will disparately affect developing nations that were neither responsible for causing the crisis nor are capable of competing with an illegal bailout.  Global forecasts estimate that world gross product will decrease by 2.6 percent and world income per capital by 3.7 per cent in 2009. Growth forecasts for developing countries in 2009 stood at only 1.2 percent compared to 7.7 percent in 2007.  The volume of world merchandise trade could plunge by 9 to 11 per cent.  Oil prices have plummeted by more than 70 per cent from their peak levels of mid-2008, prices of metals dropped by 50 per cent, while prices of other commodities, including basic grains, also declined significantly.  Private capital inflows to developing economies declined by more than 50 per cent during 2008, from the peak of more than $1 trillion registered in 2007 to less than $500 billion, and another significant decline of 50 per cent is expected for 2009.  ODA flows to developing countries were falling measurably during 2006-2007. In 2008, aid flows from donors increased again, reaching almost $120 billion, 0.3 per cent of donor countries’ combined GNI.  Massive public funding amounting to $18 trillion or almost 30 percent of the world gross product (WGP) has been made available to recapitalize banks.  To coordinate effective counter-measures under the WTO Agreement on Subsidies and Countermeasures and Art. IV of the IMF Articles of Agreement the estimated benefits that would result from devaluating the dollar and Euro 30% it can be taken into consideration that the G-20 accounts for 85% of the world economy and a 30% appreciation of 15% of the $64 trillion world economy would increase the economic value of middle income and developing nations from $9.6 trillion to $12.48 trillion dollars, an increase of $3.1 trillion to counter a loss of $2 trillion for a $67 trillion GWP and 2.1% economic growth rate for 2009.


CHAPTER 5: International Development (ID)


To amend Chapter 5 Columbia Institution for the Deaf Title 24 US Code §231-250 sixth draft. Under the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs, the number of hungry people living on less than $1 a day is set to decline to 10% (622 million people) by 2015.  In 2005 843 million people, 12.5% of the world population, and over a billion lived on less than a dollar a day, in 2009 after the economic crisis the number of hungry people is estimated to have risen to 18% (1.2 billion people).  To achieve the MDGs the US resolves to negotiate a 30% appreciation of most developing nation currencies and increase Official Development Assistance (ODA) in real terms and as a ratio of Gross National Income (GNI) and in the long run levy a 1% social security style payroll tax for international development.  To establish a new international economic system it is resolved to reform voting in the Bretton Woods institutions to a system based on population, a one person one vote, to use the IMF Special Drawing Right (SDR) as the international reserve currency and to negotiate a 30% appreciation of most developing nation currencies To create conditions where both peace and prosperity can flourish it is resolved for the United States to amend Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FRaI-d) to Foreign Relations (FR-ee), to change the name of the Court of International Trade of the United States (CoITUS) to Customs Court (CC), to consider changing the name of US Agency for International Development (USAID) to US International Development and to divide the USAID Bureau for Asia and the Near East (ANE) into the Bureau for Middle East and Central Asia (MECA) including Indonesia and North Africa and the Bureau for South East Asia (SEA) including Oceania.   Although the number of casualties of war have gone down greatly under the United Nations income inequality, poverty and deaths from preventable disease have increased and it is resolved to set down the Generals of the United Nations (GUN), freely elect a Secretary of the UN (SUN), change ECOSOC to SEA, General Assembly to Parliament, Trusteeship to Human Rights Council, International Tax Administration and renumber for a legitimate civilian government by ratifying the United Nations Charter Legitimate Edition (UNCLE).


CHAPTER 5 Test Questions HA-31-8-09


20 multiple choice questions and 4 research missions.  International development and welfare are the focus of international economic cooperation.  The current regime founded during the Second World War to replace the regime established during the First World War is however a military dictatorship.  While casualties of war have gone down income inequality has gone up and extreme poverty and preventable disease are major sources of casualties.  The West has become decadent but the East is not yet ascendant.  This test is designed to teach you the basics principles of international political reform, diplomacy, international economic regulation, international trade negotiations and international development as it applies to levying donations from the 1.5 billion people living in wealthy countries with 85% of world wealth and administrating that aid as efficiently as possible to benefit the 1.5 billion poorest people in the poorest countries.  This test is intended to give you the resolve to advocate what is right in face of overwhelming propaganda for persecution as the world’s 6.6 billion people struggle to achieve a Gross World Product (GWP) greater than $66 trillion.
