Share POLITICS: Linear Programming and Why Karmarkar's Algorithm Won't Work In A Democ
KIyer 2019-11-11 09:21
Getting stuck with extreme idealistic unattainable or impractical expectations and positions on too many issues with one possible single vote every few years with so many others with differing opinions and interests is the big folly in the politics of democracy. Idealism is not bad in itself, but carried beyond practicality is foolish and futile. Older people with repeated experience of disappointments tend to become a bit more pragmatic, but not all do. ...

Next to the window, she sat alone At a table for meant for two Looking out at the setting sun As longer the shadows grew I did not want to come across as rude I sat down a table away Into her reverie I did not intrude Even a “Hello!” I did not say I ate quietly from my plate She silently sipped her tea Discreetly I caught glimpses of her Never caught her looking at me & ...

Share Words And Their Meanings
KIyer 2019-8-22 10:48
Long ago when I lived in the USA, I noticed that most words used there politically and in media were just labels. These labels often meant nothing close to the original meaning of the words they were derived from, sometimes they really meant the opposite - they were just meant to artificially create a feeling of being goodness/political correctness through association.. A 'liberal' does not necessarily have a mostly liberal outlook towards others, a 'democrat' does not follow de ...

Share The Christmas Spirit
KIyer 2019-8-15 10:17
Met with a grumpy old man, a friend of mine with a heart of gold today. He always affectionately addresses me as "son". He is in hospital on a long recovery. I took my son along as he likes this curmudgeon. It was our "Christmas presence" for him. He was very happy to see us and in his usual manner gave my son some advice fondly with his put-on "grinch face". He always spoke about not giving gifts on occasions, not wasting money and that too borrowed money... He wants the younger generation to ...

Share All The Holiness, Beauty and Evil
KIyer 2019-3-27 13:58
No place, no monument, no symbol or word is holy, beautiful, ugly or evil in itself. True Holiness and beauty, exists only within us - in the souls and thoughts of living creatures. Ugliness and evil exists mostly within humans. Copyright © KIyer 2019 All rights reserved

Share The Most Basic Motivation For Wealth Creation
KIyer 2019-2-4 09:57
Not all who are wealthy are at fault somehow. Many earn it honestly or inherit it legally, not at anyone else's expense. Not all who are poor and struggling are so due to someone else's fault. They truly have not earned wealth or sympathy in society. There are corrupt and honest rich, just like honest and corrupt poor. They each need to be treated differently, according to their nature, not their level of wealth. A single individual cannot use more than a certain amou ...

Share The Extremes ?
KIyer 2019-2-3 09:03
SCENE 1 Sarah greeted her friends at the door, looking very happy and excited to see them, yet there was an unmistakable new calm and relaxed look to her. After they were all done squealing, jumping and hugging her in turns they wandered in. They all exclaimed at the elegance and beauty of the house, all the way from the front porch to the dining room via all the other rooms - on the standard house tour. The place was truly luxurious in an understated way - very upscale and hinted of obscenel ...

Share O, How The Times Have Changed!
KIyer 2018-10-12 10:20
For a long time we had politicians from the two major blocs trying to sound or appear to different basic values from each other to appeal to voters (even though they were basically the same). Now we have politicians from both major blocs trying to sound as if they all hold the same basic values to try and pull down those from their own party who are changing the status quo! Something has rocked their long established, smooth running gravy train. For a long tim ...
