anyway, I'm outski, yall have fun in your isolation tank that keeps you away from actual reality.

 

Pssst.. in order to properly "flounce" (as Nungali puts it), you actually have to leave the room (or stop posting in the thread, as it were) or risk painting yourself as a bit overly dramatic - especially when being mocked for the initial attempt at a flounce...

 

Ahhh shit.. and I'm back.. is it still a proper flounce if I stay away a few days? And has the creative name calling let up at all in here?

 

:looks around:

 

What? Do I have ketchup on my chin, or something?

Now...  daobums arguing?  civilization collapsing?  tao destroyed?  You think a cat would build up too much pressure over that

You don't know cats very well, do you?

I am supposing oatmeal is NOT supposed to be pressure cooked, the glub would block the emergency release pressure valve .   B)

 

But, putty smarmy aside for one  moment     ........ hang on, I can do this   .......     ugghhhh  ..... 

 

 

....  putty smarmy aside for one  moment  ......

....   thank goodness it didnt get you  .

 

-  there I did it .

 

Now, for my  pressure cooker story , which is   the yin version of your  yang one     ( or is it the other way around  ?  )

 

GF and her GF and me are going out to dinner .  My  GF  insists we go vegetarian . I say 'You can eat whatever you choose, but I will decide after I check their menu  . '     - nope. Starts to get 'bargy'  so I opt out ;  " You girls go and have fun. "

 

They  come back early and  boy does she have the shits ! Storms off to bedroom .... slam !    So I asked her GF whats up ?

 

" We went to have vego Mexican at   that nearby elcheapo, a pressure cooker in the kitchen exploded just aswe came though the door , a glob of stewing meat raced through the kitchen, through the restaurant  and  some splattered us - fortunately it had cooled down by the time some hit us  ......  some went in my hair  ....  Pam got some in her mouth . " 

 

Me ;  "  Oh !  Thats terrible . I am glad you didnt get burned . "

Proof that Sean eliminating the right-wing shit on this forum was necessary based on what happened over at Reddit. 

who got "eliminated" as right-wing B.S.?

Has anyone mentioned the recent expose of Falun Gong is the top Facebook promoter of Drumpf? It's some kind of escalating of eschatology mission.

I live in Florida, and in looking up the most recent projections for Dorian was a bit surprised to see to see landfall is being projected for a very specific area on Tuesday morning. The area - West Palm Beach.

 

If the reason for posting this here isn't quite clear, the spiral shape of hurricanes reminds me of what I consider an ancient symbol of the goddess. Soo.. the goddess is taking aim at Trump, in one of the only ways it could hurt - his personal property and income. 

 

Which gave me a little chuckle - even as we have to get the last panel of the storm shutters up today.

 Excel power is set to be over 50% powered by renewable energy by 2026. And 100% by 2050. And they are innovating at an unprecedented rate that wouldn't be possible if they were taxed to the ground.

 https://www.xcelenergy.com/energy_portfolio/renewable_energy

 

Excel used to be NSP - Northern States Power. That renewable energy standard was only passed due to massive civil disobedience arrests. I got arrested in 1994 protesting against Excel (NSP) storing nuclear waste on the Mississippi River on a native indigenous reservation. The group Clean Water Action is the largest environmental lobby organization in Minnesota but they got fined by the IRS for being involved in these protests against Excel - for supposedly misusing deductible education donations for protesting against Excel (NSP). Then in 2000 I discovered my dad had been a laywer for NSP (excel) when the first nuclear power plant was opened - when I was conceived and born. The state attorney general was suing to increase the standards on allowed radiation emissions from the nuclear power plant. My dad had been the assistant attorney general (so a perfect hire for NSP-Excel). So I flew to Puerto Rico when I was 6 weeks old as part of a celebration vacation for my dad - after that lawsuit set a new national precedence that routine nuclear radiation emissions could not be regulated at a higher standard than the military-industrial complex standard.

 

So then I worked at Clean Water Action for 10 years - that renewable energy standard that you refer to in praising Excel was actually the "deal" - a trade off -  for allowing Excel to continue to store nuclear waste on the mississippi river.

http://nukewatchinfo.org/xcel-wants-to-run-48-yr-old-reactor-to-age-59-or-even-69/

Monticello’s notorious design type was also ignored by the MPR news report which failed to mention that the reactor is a General Electric “Mark 1”—the same design, built by the same manufacturer, as the four reactors that failed catastrophically at Fukushima-Daiichi in Japan on March 11, 2011. Fukushima’s red hot masses of melted metallic radioactive “corium” are still venting radiation to the air, and pouring radioactive cooling water into the Pacific, eight years after the disaster which resulted from the worst earthquake in recorded Japanese history.

 

Adding to the risk-taking at the 671-megawatt Monticello unit, are its power rate increases, which were also ignored by the MPR news story. In 1998, Xcel was permitted to boost its power output, allowing the company to run the reactor 6.3% hotter and harder. In 2013, in spite of its age, it was even permitted a second power rate increase, pushing the old jalopy an additional 12.9% beyond its originally licensed limit.

 

MPR’s report did make me howl once. On the air, the reporter noted that Xcel, Inc. had agreed to install additional solar and wind electric generation systems, and added that more solar and wind “is good for environmental groups.” Again, saying that environmental groups benefit is true, but like saying the surface of the sun is “hot,” it understates the case by orders of magnitude. More solar and wind power are good in general for everybody, and for all groups in general.

 

So I would say that it's too little too late.

  Tao doesn't print money.  But it does base its functions on self-replication.  Who'd have guessed that this "virtue" of tao could be imitated to build replicators of dead things and get enslaved by them.  I'm pretty sure tao itself, if it had a head to scratch, would be doing just that looking at us.     

China actually was the FIRST to create paper money and its value was backed by  the "military" - of course. And this idea of replicating dead things as an "imitation" of the Dao - I don't get into the mathematical ritual origins of mass ritual sacrifice geometry - well at least to mention how the 10-based rod number counting system was imported into China, (just trying subtracting the Moon calendar from the Sun calendar using ideograms or whatever they're called).... haha. Yes as left-brain/right hand technology then took over with the plow-based patriarchy creating this illusion of "containing" infinity using numbers - a good book on this is:

 

 

 

Quote

 

 

 

 

 

Fiction, Famine, and the Rise of Economics in Victorian Britain and Ireland ... Mary Barton, Cranford, and North and South, and Charles Dickens's Bleak House.

 

 
So about this time when Egyptian hieroglyphs were being translated - suddenly Westerners had to change their idea of how geometry using phonetic based symbols was linked to numbers as Infinity to define money (and technological reproduction as "value").
Quote

Smith’s “theory of wealth and poverty developed out of his engagement with the philosophy of language” (p. 13). Human communication arose out of physical needs (p. 29), humans are characterized by a capacity for sympathy (p. 36), and humans trade both sentiment as well as goods (p. 44). To this, might be added the explicit case made by Smith in his Wealth of Nations for trade carried in language and governed by reciprocity (Smith 1776, p. 30)

 

So then the 60-based number system that was older was also more right brain dominant - with, for example "12" as they key from music theory for the small universe meditation as Daoist Neidan. So we can then see how the Western asian Chariot "Hub" culture moved into China - and began a Westernization with the printing of money and the loss of the Dao.

 

The greeks were the first to use a 10-based number currency though. And by then the "complementary opposites" math secret of Daoism - from music - was being rapidly lost and then replaced with a symmetric-based ideology of dualism as irrational magnitude, the so-called "Greek Miracle." This is so deeply entrenched in our minds that we hardly notice anymore.

This is a very delicate subject. On the surface Steve's assertion is shocking, outrageous ... And probably gets a lot of people's backs up. But I think it bears a little deeper discussion.

 

It is telling that the statement is qualified by ... in the US.  I would expect that Chistians outside of US might take exception to the assertion. But I think there is a bit of truth in the assertion. Let me suggest a way to think about this.

 

The current situation in the US began its rise in the early 1980s with the political coalescing of the Moral Majority. Christian communities had fairly strong sense of direction surrounding issues of morality ... public prayer, abortion, sexuality. This sense of Christian morality had served the country relatively well in terms of social behavioral guidelines and order. In many ways it was the US morality.

 

So, what happened? Some very astute politicians realized that Christians represented a voting block that was already consolidated around a set of values. They needed no convincing. All that was necessary was that a political party, regardless of its agenda, adopt these moral values, at least superficially, and a large block of voters would swing their way.

 

Ever since then, that political party has only had to agitate the moral block ... by way of threatening their core values ... in order to gain support each political cycle ... And their real agenda can ride the wave. So, every election cycle, the same "issues" arise ... prayer, religious imagery in public places, abortion, sexuality (now in the form of LGBT issues). Align these issues with American core values ... mom, Apple pie and the American flag ... And you have a very potent mixture indeed.

 

In this way, Christian moral authority has been usurped. As long as the political party is able to identify with morality ... It has the high ground. This is because it is sacreligious to question an established religion. This is a very powerful position.

 

Seen from this vantage point ... Steve's assertion makes sense. But where to place the fault. Is it Chistians that are at fault ... not from the point of view of a life guiding morality ... perhaps, though, by allowing themselves to be manipulated. Generally, as a country we (the US) share the blame for having allowed this situation to go unchallenged.  And certainly, there are those master manipulators,  who saw the potential and seized upon it.

 

Small wonder our founding fathers took steps to try and keep religion and governing separate. They just didn't figure on political parties being so ... Machiavellian. 

 

Just sayin.

 

 

I wrote a paper in my first year of college on the Christian church being complicit with the Nazis. Certainly there were outliers as activists but by in large the Church was part of the creation of the New World Neo-Nazi movement.
