Yellow and Blue Make Green - Sometimes

Yellow and Blue Make Green - SometimesAs small children, one of the first laws we learned in art class is that yellow and blue make green. However, even the laws of nature change according to who is in charge or has the most influence.

For example, take the law of entropy.This expresses the principle that a system left to run on its own tends to naturally go into disorder. But some wise scientists tell the rest of "unlearned" mortals that a chaotic big bang produced a universe that resulted in a planet being situated in the perfect position, with the perfect characteristics, to sustain life from simple, single cell organisms to complex humans.



If that is true, next time you want a brand new luxury car go to your nearest junkyard and detonate a big bomb. A perfect car would be the result. Paint it green and name it Eden. By the way, the original Ford Model Ts came only in green.

Speaking of green, since yellow and blue took over these lovely islands of Antigua & Barbuda in the Caribbean Sea, green has been quickly fading.

When Lennon sang of a yellow submarine, he recognized skies of blue and seas of green. Some said he was on a drug trip. I wonder what trip our policymakers were on when they decided to build the yellow concrete monster east of Independence Drive.

Not only has it blocked out the blue sky, but it also killed the green grass. Anyway, if our "wise'' leaders (loosely speaking) are to be believed, it eventually will make us many green dollars.

Well, since those green dollars got lost in the blue seas between Trinidad and Barbados, a bluebird thinks it is a great idea to import some yellow chicks. No, I am not speaking of girls from China, that yellow dragonflies on a red background (or is it the opposite way around).

I refer to those chickens they intend to put on many acres of green land close to the blue sea. I wonder if Arnold will start to squeal when Lisa is pushed off Green Acres. Someone on shore may make plenty green dollars, but not the small producers occupying the red dirt.

This seem to be the big idea to bring green dollars, but may I put in my two brown cents? They were not necessarily found in Villa Area.

On hikes through the hills and valleys of Antigua, one cannot help but notice the vast amount of green lemongrass. Since this is an invasive species and is killing many green acres, like the Chicken Kings, why not get rid of it in a manner that can earn some money? Bag it and sell it as tea. That would surely cut down our food import bill and there may be a little left over for export. Isn't that the whole idea behind the chicken farm?

Then again, what the red hell do I know about blue economics; I just wear a white coat that occasionally gets stained with blood or paint, not wine.

On the hikes, far too often one can see green hills being stripped bare in the name of development. Rusty fences are enclosing land that no one has paid for. The water courses are blocked up and natural fauna displaced.

Do not talk about the mangroves, whether black, white, or red; they are nowhere to be found. Then again, there is nothing like blue economics. Whatever green dollars we save or take in on yellow chicken will be balanced by what we lose or have to pay out on red fish.

I hear plenty talk about protecting the environment and going green. Hence I am a little puzzled about the Wadadli petroleum Power Plant. It was built by yellow people, being embraced by blues,cursed by reds, while it bellows black smoke on black people.



However, one thing in which there is no confusion is that we are paying plenty green money for an old grey elephant. I guess this is the big yellow and blue idea of going green.

That is why I was originally so confused when it was asked if we expected to see blood or wine. But it became clear that someone needed to go to the MSJ Medical Centre after hitting his head and bleeding due to a fall from drinking too much wine. No wonder he was seeing so much red.

Anyways, as one commentator usually writes after my articles - stick to your knitting Dr Simon. So this article has nothing to do with politics, economics or even knitting. I am not that good with those kinds of needles.

But before you shoot the messenger, I was just going over my colour schemes in an effort to start painting again, a knit I do know something about. I was just surprised that when I mixed the yellow and blue, it did not turn out green. Then again, there was a power plant failure and the electricity went off.

A Thing Of Beauty Is A Joy To Behold!

#11 John French II » 2013-02-10 20:08

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! Doc, Missed but Never Forgotten. Quote:
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wereathing A flowery band to bind us to the earth, Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth, Of noble natures, of the gloomy days, Of all the unhealthy and o'er darkened ways Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all, Some shape of beauty moves away the pall From our dark spirits. John Keats
As many toil while living in the IMF's NEST of Fiscal Adjustment & Structural Reform, Please be not still but gives us more excess of your writing filled with a spirit of love & wit as fresh as the morning dew.
Your words embody the diagnosis & treatment for the affective, behavioural, cognitive & perceptual abnormalities of Quote:
the weariness, the fever & the fret Here where men sit & hear each other groan; Where Palsy shakes a few, sad last gray hairs, Where youth grows pale & spectre-thin, & dies Where but to think is to be full of sorrow & leaden eyed despairs. Keats
Again, Thanks Doc. We Need The Healing Powers Of Your Therapeutic Writings.
Go Well! Much Respect!

Dr. Simon, I must applaud you for wrapping all of the nonsense of our leaders into this tortilla of a summary. I hope the choke when they read it, and that you are there to perform the Heimlich maneuver on them. LOL

When peaceful men wage war!

You can say what you want, but this was the most political, non political piece I have read here on CA, here is why: You almost never talk Politicks, but The sarcasms drips out like a leaking bucket about to burst. This is a sign of the times to come. In my opinion you are like the clam before the storm. The pot jus-a-bubble and looks like it a-go-boil-over. The poor people of this country got robbed and raped. The shameful thing is that not one government leader have spoke out against this betrayal. Not even to acknowledge that even with the so-call new plant DOES NOT WORK. We as the people paying is not even afforded an update on how what was promised is coming along. The sad truth is that those very same culprits may still be in charge after 2014 because of power struggle on the opposite side of this argument. I see a bad moon rising. God forgive, but heads must roll. This is a wicked thing that has been perpetrated on the backs of the poor in Antigua, a heartless proposition of the evil kind.

This article is a refreshing read. I love the tongue and cheek.

Here is food for thought: "I hear plenty talk about protecting the environment and going green. Hence I am a little puzzled about the Wadadli petroleum Power Plant. It was built by yellow people, being embraced by blues,cursed by reds, while it bellows black smoke on black people."

"let's fix the little things with RWE before we attempt to fix the big things."

a good laugh

#2 tenman » 2013-02-10 09:43

Doc thanks. Sometimes its best to just laugh at the mess so we don't go mad. The powers that be, just always seem to turn the meaning of things on its head. Portions which spoke loud to me:
