Obviously we all drop our clangers all over the place. I wonder if any came off in the Holy of Holies? I am sure God must have been amused if they did. Otherwise the High Priest wouldn't have come out glowing with the light of encounter, but singed round the edges and 'smokin'. Well he was probably smoking from all that incense (IN-sense).
I think this idea developed because neither my Husband or I are able to get two of our pyrex bowls apart! They are just stuck. Without smashing one, we can't use either of them. I am not prepared to throw them away yet. I have this sneaky suspicion that if they just relax themselves, and I give them a little tap in the right place they might come apart, then I can use them again. Still It might take years, so I will put them in the shed for a bit. (I tried all the usual hot water stuff).
I think the whole world is up in arms about something, seemingly.
I don't actually think we need to completely dismantle the banking structures. I just think that managing money should be kept quite seperate from the political process, and that huge reforms are required.
Something that would slow down the whole shenanigans of these high frequency transfers, would be to ensure there is a proper paper trail that can be audited. If an audit can't be done as the transfers are created with some sort of 'paper trail', then we don't have much hope of putting the break on a complete collapse of our financial networks. For instance, even if I had a sum of money in the bank here, because of due process, I would not legitimately be able to spend it unless I can demonstrate where this money has come from.
When I have done business banking, I had to produce all sorts of ID, and be verified as a legitimate person to hold an account before I could open it for my business. It is really up to banks and financial institutions themselves to reform the system, and I can't imagine how they will do it. They shouldn't be allowed in any form to pay for, or donate to anything but charitable causes.
If there was real transparency in politics, then the voters should be able to see the accounts of each politicians campaign funds. Frankly it's better to reform the political system, make sure the person being voted for has the squeaky clean track record needed, and has some common sense. Then having come under a suitable vetting process, be eligible for dibs in a public fund for their campaign. If they lose in the primaries, and don't get sufficient votes, then they should be liable to pay back to public funds the money used. Perhaps this way there may be some intellegent candidate proposals from groups with similar agenda. The purpose to combine and form less fragmented and minority views that are not a real representation of a wider political landscape.
Well I might try getting those pyrex bowls apart again before they are consigned to a shelf in frustration.
I am showing my friend that portrait of her Grand Daughter today, I can always change it if she doesn't think it looks enough like her.
