quote of the day--from Rachel Maddow--"Only if your name is Trump will your legal bills be paid by Other People's Money--by Republican National Convention-- if you ever bought a $40 make

America great again hat--" Quote is not verbatim, collage of things Maddow has said on her program. The couple had the gall to try and sell those hats on their first Hurricane Harvey trip. On 2nd trip clown told people who were in shelter, "Thanks for coming." Now he says he's good at cutting taxes (for the very rich). As soon as the bleating bragging voice comes on, I turn it off. Wish he wld just join Helfner in hell. Even Hefner was "better" than this guy. besides, H. was not US Presdt. 9-28-2017

trump's america is only for whites like him -- & billionaires, women he marries, his children and plastic surgeons--he shld go to jail. Wish Mueller probe will lead to his indictment soon.

serves him right, extreme nationalist bigot, for denying climate change. See below.

2 puffa jackets to one coat--crafts

As a writer, and after reading Michener's The Novel, I always feel that one should "do something else" for the time when one is not reading and writing. Steinbeck made boxes and gardened, and in The Novel, the writer does carpentry. Well, I paint and sew and cook and clean, and this woman Tree's videos have confirmed what I have been doing. Never take out a seam once put in. Before I saw her videos, I cannibalized 2 wool pants into one vest, 2 cotton pants into one blouse and after I watched her, I cut down 3 long dresses into tops, some with this very new shape. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEV7nVKstZPRYAtQEnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjB0aG5zBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=Stitchless+TV+Youtube&fr=yhs-mozilla-001&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-001#id=60&vid=3978a62149b0819c24b4a3c9f6793539&action=view Also watching her made me confident to cut boldly. Now sewing quite intensively for my craft show with others on 3 and 4th Nov--see Friendship Heights Village Center newsletter for details. I learned a tremendous amount by reading online or watching Youtube, incld how to make Italian meringue by Gordon Ramsey. But since I can't eat sugars, once I knew how, I didn't make it again, and I whipped the egg whites all by hand, in fact it gave me better control while watching the syrup turn a very light gold. I have a beater, but it's in another city. And now I regret having thrown out all my pans bought at garage sales, including a spring form pan and a soup pot/stock pot. It's very annoying not to have enough space for one projects. I will need a lot of space to do silk painting and tie dying. kmk 9-27-2017 Kyi May Kaung Words Sounds and Images

Rohingya-- a subset of Burmese Muslims

Disgusting--Just posted on comments section of New Mandala--Burma studies site--

Looking at this again, when Zarni and some few are defending Rohingya, while there is state-sponsored genocide in Burma. Almost all the people I worked with prior to 2010 went to Burma Burma Burma and advised Thein Sein. I can count on fingers of one hand those with integrity left outside to blow in wind. My father called the ass lickers "goats' balls." I more or less share Zarni's opinion that Burma Studies is a dead field. Mostly composed of art historians and junta apologists. Now the act of pretending things have changed in Burma has back-fired, and who fouled the nest, again the JUNTA JUNTA JUNTA. But people too busy blaming a woman, Aung San Suu Kyi. You people are not worth shit, and history will show why. Or just go to the Naaf River and see for yourself, or the Burma-China Border. Academic and "diplomatic" hemming and hawing is no use. And if you say "junta basher" one more time, I will ostracize you for good. Ever thought of looking for the true facts instead of doing cover up. Scholarship or journalism or writing or broadcasting is not a make up and window dressing job. The governments and NGOs who changed their name in 2010 from Friends of Burma to Friends of Mee Ahn Mar are also at fault. I pray I may never see any or you again. How many thought to go to Naaf River and take a personal look. How many donated even $5 for refugees? Disgusting. Kyi May Kaung (Ph.D.)

Maybe someone from the relief center. Now she's making speeches on cyber bullying, when "her husband is the biggest bully" says Mika B. on Morning Joe. True True. But richest of them all?? Gen.

Quote of the day--what state sponsored genocide looks like

https://mg.co.za/article/2017-09-18-rohingya-crisis-this-is-what-genocide-looks-like/Genocide scholars document a range of strategies of physical and psychological destruction which take place prior to mass killings. 9-19-2017 The world is witnessing a state-orchestrated humanitarian catastrophe on the Myanmar-Bangladesh border. The latest UN figures show a staggering 370 000 Rohingya have fled into Bangladesh since August 25. An unknown number have perished. Around 26 000 non-Muslims have also been displaced.

Rachel Maddow fr NYTs and Politico--Paul Manafort likely to be indicted, T. sees Malaysian leader who with Ukraine, laundered money in USA

they are both subjects of Kleptocracy investigation by special section at Department of Justice which eventually became the Mueller investigation. In July,FBI was allowed to pick Manafort's front door lock, and knocked on his bedroom door. To do this they needed FISA warrant, which they got which means there was a concern that Manafort might destroy criminal evidence. Manafort's people say his lawyer was not asked for the info that they copied out of his laptop, and confiscated. In addition, a special prosecutor from Kelptocracy section has left DOJ and joined Mueller team. https://news.google.com/news/video/gQDWc64Gnt8/d6_T-bImr_rxiDMG_eOXDZWTiHtXM?hl=en&ned=us

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has obtained a search warrant for Facebook to examine "inauthentic accounts" linked to Russian Trump campaign ads

http://www.businessinsider.com/mueller-obtains-warrant-for-russia-linked-facebook-ads-and-accounts-2017-9 Almost everyone in the DT HW has lawyered up, including lawyers like McGahn. Yesterday, VP Pence, who has lied a lot, lost his press secretary. See The Rachel Maddow Show 9-14-2017 for score card of those fired, she says names she has up are only in WH, and don't even include Sally Yates, and James Comey, or Preet Bharara and the DAs who resigned. It looks like Muellers' team, who just also hired another high powered investigator, is getting closer and closer, and T. is running scared. Kushner testified not under oath in closed hearing for 5 hours. T. is trying to sugar up Dems. As we all know, he does not blow kisses, unless he is seriously scared, as he did when he was scared of Comey and abt to fire him. I think his comeuppance DT's, is due now. But in meantime ESPN sportscaster has been fired for calling him a white supremacist. kmk 9-16-2017

What I wrote in 2012--so-called change in mee ahn mar, now so-called democracy

Reckless optimism Myanmar's 'reformed' gov? - Southeast Asia Globe Magazine http://scq.io/rr1F7FZi via @SEA_GLOBE What I wrote in 2012 Reckless optimism: Myanmar’s ‘reformed’ government? By: Dr Kyi May Kaung - POSTED ON: July 11, 2012 OPINION: Civilians in Myanmar lack the luxury of wearing rose-tinted glasses Dr Kyi May Kaung Following recent developments in Burma, the international media has suffered from a surfeit of overly optimistic reports of the glass-is-half-full variety, failing to analyse what constitutes ‘reform’. Change, indeed, is one part of reform. Considering that a handful of changes do not qualify as a ‘reformed’ government, it is clear to me that most media people do not understand what they are talking about. For reforms to stick, they need to be structural or systemic reforms. As Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been a victim of a kangaroo court’s ruling, repeatedly points out, there is no rule of law in Burma. For all you cup-half-full people, please be aware that you may be half-baked. It’s nice to be cheerful, but what if your good cheer is based on faulty facts? To understand Burma you need to know that it has always been a centrally-controlled system – from 1044 under the time of the Bagan kings, through British colonial rule to the ‘more’ centralised system set up by general Ne Win that is still in place today. Suu Kyi recently claimed that “good laws already exist in Burma”, but they are not enforced. In fact such ‘laws’ in Burma are either based on outdated British colonial laws, like the riot act, or were established under the command economy of Ne Win. With the exception of the democratically-elected U Nu period post-World War II, which ended with Ne Win’s coup of 1962, no law in Burma has ever been set by discussion and consensus in a real parliament. (I consider the present Hluttaw at worst a joke – a bad joke and an evil one – and at best, a movie studio setting). Farmers still don’t own their land – all they have is the right to cultivate it. Following the brutal clampdown on mass pro-democracy demonstrations in 1988, the junta began to change to an ‘open economy’. But guess what? It was open only to the regime and its crony capitalists. Tempted perhaps by the tasty profits the military earned under the caretaker government of the 1950s – which was a kind of dry-run coup for the junta led by people such as Brigadier Aung Gyi, a renowned capitalist from a commercial family – in 1990, the military established its Union of Myanmar Economic Holding Ltd, now the country’s largest conglomerate. Even though Suu Kyi’s recent call for responsible investment – warning investors of “reckless optimism” – rubbed the president the wrong way, I think they were completely justified. If investors flee from Burma, it won’t be due to her remarks, but because of the following things that made the news in May and June: escalating racial unrest in the Arakan region of western Burma leading to deaths; gold miners and factory workers striking as labour unrest spread; a lack of rule of law, allowing police to act like thugs, with a group of 70 ganging up on people at a roadside cafe and one woman dying while in their custody; the anniversary to mark a year of increasing attacks on the Kachin in northeastern Burma; a court ruling in favour of Zaykabar, a company that has been accused of stealing more than 800 acres of land from farmers in Rangoon’s Mingaladon Township; and farmers striking in Monywa against a Chinese copper company that has dumped excavation waste on their farmland. In short, dark storm clouds are gathering. Given the degree of anger, it is not hard to imagine something unfolding along similar lines to the French Revolution.

Mozart complete opera, The Magic Flute (audio only) conducted by Herbert von Karajan

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kHqX1HuUpk It's a little different musically from productions I am more used to. The musical interpretation is a bit different. I don't speak or understand much German, but I think the German ennunciation in this production is more distinct. I do find that sometimes von Karajan can be technically excellent, but a bit soulless in his interpretation. I liked the Levine, Metropolitan Opera production featuring Kathleen Battle the best. The sets and costumes of that production were designed by David Hockney. Kyi May Kaung 9-5-2017

Amazing story of Lew Wallace, Union General during American Civil War, author of Ben Hur--

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben-Hur:_A_Tale_of_the_Christ All written from library research, some at the Library of Congress. I was much struck by the theological discussions of the Three Kings in the desert in Part One. Just amazing. This just shows, how classics become classics. So amazed it was written so long ago. 9-2-2017

Quote of the day--from Ben Hur--Gutenberg Porject

No one, be it remembered, seeks the desert for a pleasure-ground. Life and business traverse it by paths along which the bones of things dead are strewn as so many blazons. Such are the roads from well to well, from pasture to pasture. The heart of the most veteran sheik beats quicker when he finds himself alone in the pathless tracts. So the man with whom we are dealing could not have been in search of pleasure; neither was his manner that of a fugitive; not once did he look behind him. In such situations fear and curiosity are the most common sensations; he was not moved by them. When men are lonely, they stoop to any companionship; the dog becomes a comrade, the horse a friend, and it is no shame to shower them with caresses and speeches of love. The camel received no such token, not a touch, not a word. Exactly at noon the dromedary, of its own will, stopped, and uttered the cry or moan, peculiarly piteous, by which its kind always protest against an overload, and sometimes crave attention and rest. The master thereupon bestirred himself, waking, as it were, from sleep. He threw the curtains of the houdah up, looked at the sun, surveyed the country on every side long and carefully, as if to identify an appointed place. Satisfied with the inspection, he drew a deep breath and nodded, much as to say, "At last, at last!" A moment after, he crossed his hands upon his breast, bowed his head, and prayed silently. The pious duty done, he prepared to dismount. From his throat proceeded the sound heard doubtless by the favorite camels of Job--Ikh! ikh!--the signal to kneel. Slowly the animal obeyed, grunting the while. The rider then put his foot upon the slender neck, and stepped upon the sand.
