5) The gases that our civilization are emitting such as CO2 is
actually a cooling mechanism .... BRING ON THE CHEAP ASS SAUDI OIL BUBBA !

The folks at the American Petroleum Institute would love to talk with you about this. I bet they'd offer you a job.

Anyway, I'm interested in what the scientists have to say on these matters. I don't know of any scientists making these claims.

Feel free to knock on Prof. Emeritus Guy McPherson's door. He'll be glad
to correct your errors.
I don't need a job.... I'm the owner of a prolific gold n silver mine in Az.
Thanks for the lead Bubba...

Oh & bye the bye.....
Review the study on heat increases over the U.S. post 9/11.
The week we had no airline service.
Next victim please !

G. McPherson subscribes to the anthropogenic greenhouse gases theory concerning the causes of increased global temperature averages.  He's also sloppy in how he wields science to argue his Near Term Extinction hypothesis. But he sides with the world's scientists on the matter of the causes of warming.  -- Unless he changed his mind recently, that is. I've heard no word of such a change in his thinking.

"Review the study on heat increases over the U.S. post 9/11.

Which study? Link or title/author

I'm sick to death of "spirituality" coming to mean "never get angry".  What a dumb load of shit that is.

It's true, though, that appropriate anger should be appropriately directed.  But the narcissists who run our world don't give a flying fork about our anger.

In any case, it's true. America is nothing more than a "reality" TV show now.   Just like "spirituality" in most cases.  Real is fake and fake is real.

 ... a game in which everyone loses and is a loser.

It's the only game in town.

All the amazing and wonderful are contestants--, presidents, even Hollywood actors!  Even you!  What a game -- the only game in town!

Hardly anyone knows about this game, 'cause to be an outsider to the game you really have to be an outsider to the game.  And hardly any loser is.

This was the last day of the trump administration.  It was the last day of any American administration.

Stick a fork in it; America is quite dead.

Few people here will know what I'm talking about. That's fine. That's not my problem.

Speaking of the wish to have 99.9% of humans dead, why stop there?  Why not wish them all dead? Hmm?

The very first sentence in this writing is false.

"In the We Need Peace thread Inside the Diner begun by Diner JoW, Diner JRM said I don't provide practical solutions for resolving the problems that Homo Sap faces."

What actually happened was that RE said that he believed X (a sentence to the effect of the underlined, above) about me.  I  proposed that he speak that same sentence to himself in the mirror as a kind of experiment, to see how he might feel about hearing him say that to himself in the mirror.  RE mistakenly took my proposed experiment as a statement about him, echoing his own statement to me -- thus entirely missing my point.  As usual.

I realize I'm speaking Swahili here, as usual.  Whatever.

You know what they say about pearls.  They are bright and shiny, and I'm going on a very long walkabout.

  I hope your teaching others does not involve you getting paid for it. That will definitely skew any true complete communication. When I was in my "Bodhisattva" phase years ago I never accepted anything for communicating with others. For every one that lives here in the monastery it is the same way.

I work for a non-profit educational organization which offers classes, sessions, workshops and retreats with various teachers, some local and some not.   Our policy is to give whatever we offer as a gift, when possible. When our costs make this impossible we sometimes offer our workshops or retreats within a sliding scale fee system with a very low bottom end, which is further modified by requests for donations to our scholarship fund. I'm an administrator, and one of the organization's founders, so I get to make decisions.  No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  And, no, I do not get paid to teach. Our organization has never brought in enough money -- yet -- for me to earn a salary.  I am not motivated by money in the least.

It was you, RE, who said " ... before you shove your foot down your mouth any further."

Do you honestly think that's not insulting, you who are so easily insulted?

I think you're so easily insulted because that which you accuse others -- such as myself -- of YOU ACCUSE YOURSELF OF.   But you don't do it in the light of conscious awareness, no. You do it in the dark.  You are shadow boxing.  And you think this makes you innocent.

It does not.

Do you never stop insulting people?  Is this the only way you can satisfy your ego?

Mirror mirror on the wall....


In any event, I suggest waiting until I publish the 12 Steps before you shove your foot down your mouth any further.

It must be terrible to live your life in unending competition with others, as if life were a proving ground for your basic worth.   It must be even worse to have to get out your rocket launcher, and to deny that you're doing so, in this game of "who wins?".

You win.  Okay.  Whatever.

Celebrating Easter with Eggs Benedict made with the first tomatoes from the garden.

Mmmmm. Looks yummy!  I love Eggs Benedict, but have somehow never made it at home.  Hmm.  I think it's because I've never attempted hollandaise sauce.  I'm not sure why hollandaise sauce vaguely intimidates me. Hmm.
