A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Money is about intelligence & skill - but I think almost so smart it can confuse itself & create self-doubt. 1968 was Earth Monkey - & the Earth element made it especially 'karmic' & consequential, I think. This year (next two years in fact) are Fire - which is energy & enthusiasm. The U.S.A. is a Fire Monkey being 'b.' 1776 - so I'm curious to see how this election year plays out for our nation...Another thing associated w/ the Monkey is Entertainment !...
Avatar 10:10am Boomis:

Can confirm. Am Earth Monkey -- have much self-doubt. But that's very interesting to know that there are different elements associated with the animal.

Talking heads have been predicting massive money & whoopass to be unleashed on Trump by GOP regulars - hasn't happened yet...Smells of "Reality" TV - to make the rest or even Hillary look human? It's hard to fathom the Trump phenomenon - but they are talking about maybe an open convention for the GOP...
Avatar 11:26am Wild Neil:

@Revolution-The phenomenon of Trump is not too difficult to fathom. He appears to be a true free agent not beholden to any special interest since he can self-fund his campaign. The popularity of his platform that indeed people are really that pissed off. I should know, I am one of them. NOW, could he merely be running hard right and then go straight for the middle once in? Perhaps. Is he a shill for Hillary Clinton? A pawn? Maybe...but I try to see things in non-conspiracy terms when practical...

@WN: Yeah maybe - but this is the Game of Power.

The GOP understands that the more they fight Trump they more they fuel a third-party run. They're hoping Trump loses clean and fair in the early primaries.
