G-20 2016, China

80% of world interest will be dealt here.
They will negotiate or settle them in September 4 and 5.
China as host will take the full advantage.

US are the one and only super power.
But clearly down decline day is near.
All are preparing for next round.

World will prepare for days after Obama.
With Clinton it will be much the same.
But with Trump, imaginations are plenty.

Japan just beef up Africa interest.
But China market is real and now.
Then the normalization must go on and military action for eye only.

Russia is happy for the role.
Balancer can be very greased.
Pair with China can bring tons of benefits.

Euro needs China more then ever.
Hard cash has no replacement.
China is a happy shopper.

China becomes new source of arm sales.
Better price and practical speak for itself.
That covers lot third world countries.

Canada wants China’ domestic market.
It relies on past Liberal government’s good China relation.
But it still have to thunder the human right issue.

Base on recent China Foreign Affair Minister’ outburst.
It will be a tough sale.
But Canadian way will go on.

Rio came out pretty good.
Then China can play better host here.
West must yield some say to China.

Yes it is peace rising.
But China needs all taking him seriously.
Major part decision making role is a must for China now.

Maturity of Knicks Antony

He is the only one said it right.
After gold medal, he spoke of national unity.
You can tell he was passing on the value of team.

For the last game, he was all role player.
Power was there but very little self.
This will make him and his team different.

Remember Kobe?
He was in disgrace.
But he came back using national team as stepping stone.

He played hard on defense.
Team was his way.
And he ended up with more greatness.

Antony now finished his national team days.
He now is all for national unity.
It matches his team play this time.

Kobe reached new high after national team play.
This can be Antony’s turn.
One sees the big picture and step up in unity.

We used to see Antony as me only player.
But this time, he is the only one think of country and unity.
That is never easy coming from a me person.

The national unity statement showed compassion and maturity.
We can be pretty sure.
He will have a great season this year.

Olympics 2016

This can be wishful thinking on my part.
But I do wish well for America.
After all I was there for 15 years.

The way they are now worries me.
They are so deeply divided.
They need something major to unite the country.

Olympics seem perfect.
We don’t need anything planned.
That definitely will turn negative.

The contrast is there.
Violence is front page story again.
Olympic glory is not appreciated by all.

Those medal winner had life time hard work to get where they are.
They brim with tear and passion in glory.
But They are fortunate and better blessed half of the society.

That does not live well with many blacks.
Both side are so far apart.
Why not winners cross over to reach out?

We can see clearly.
None of the medalists reflected on greater passion.
That is to touch those black lives matter on TV.

Sadly the commercial interest is too strong.
The power of TV Olympics is sugar coating everything.
That will make divide worse.

Not that it will works.
But it is only right to show compassion to less fortunately.
The best educated elites missed the moment of their live.

Yes, Olympic is a major treat in every 4 years.
I have enjoyed Phelps glory.
And diving board precision near had my eye pop out.

Then I saw those gold medalists.
They worked hard to get to this moment.
But none remembered the much less fortunate.

How I wished.
One would share the glory for the unity.
But swimmers story makes all impossible.

Many looked like angels with tear in eye.
But I also can see TV images of black youth with hate in their eyes.
This is a moment lost.

I can imagine.
Those have nothing will hate even more.
The opportunity was never theirs to have.

But if one had thought about it and took action.
Not official but just show concern in interview would do.
Now it will take Phelps taking all medalist to visit the conflicted community.

Change maker

Bill Clinton is right.
Hilary indeed is a change maker.
I saw that since my Berkeley days in 1970s.

But what concerns me now is.
Will she be the right decision maker.
An ambassador death is still large in my mind.

Power of speech was clearly on display here.
Obama is the best there is.
But 8 years did pile up many negative effects.

Bill Clinton did TALK to us.
We saw a real Hilary in his word.
But he also lied to us by saying no sex with that woman.

Maybe that is why.
Obama insisted in his speech.
We all had made mistake.

Biden commanded the floor.
But he also showed a very scary side.
That is no sharing and US must be the only at any cost.

That me-only mentality had earned the U S ugly American name.
And in the name of America interest, nothing can be in the way.
Moral values are for the birds here.

Ex-New York Mayor made sharp contrast as billionaire.
But he failed to see.
We all know who and what Trump is.

But Trump did have the 14 million plus people supported him.
Those people had it with current well-off people.
Their reality is change.

And the VP candidate speech was something else.
There was no dignity or grace.
He degraded the position he is aiming at.

US can use a Trump 4 years to face up what went wrong.
And current First Lady is ready.
A first black and female US President will be historical.
