They should just send those evil stoners to the gulag and make them do internet spying for free. Problem solved.

With regards to religious restraint...are you saying that we have failed to follow the Doctrine of Religious Restraint as set down by our founders? That we (or politicians) have made coercive laws based on religious doctrine, and that's at the heart of social decay? Just wanting to get your meaning here, and maybe not quite following your line of thought. Please clarify.

We are actually AHEAD of yesterdays's pace, with more than 100 listens before 6AM. 

The NSA has you on speaker phone.

If you had a savings bond (and your parents didn't cash it in) you can still lay hands on it, from what I'm told. They just keep accruing interest, too, even after least the bonds from that era do. You should search for it. The government might owe you a lot of money.

I think that was at Ft. Hood. They did get caught and prosecuted, fwiw.

This kind of article just makes me understand how little I know about grassroots politics, which is to say, nothing at all.

Maybe he's right about some of this, I definitely get the impression from the millenials I know, that the biases introduced through the public schools are real , and that younger activists tend to be very naive about the whole process.

But this guy comes across like the organizers in Steinbeck's novel In Dubious Battle. Like the guys who know (but don't say it out loud) that making an omelet involves sacrificing a few eggs skulls.

I tried reading that book last year, and I just couldn't. And I couldn't really participate in a real movement, not as an organizer,because to me the end never justifies the means.

One of my kid's school friends asked his good buddy to shoot him in the butt with a BB gun, supposedly not loaded. This was several years back, and last I heard the BB was still in his ass.

Glad you're getting some positive feedback. Too bad the pay isn't better.

It strikes me that on some level the military industrial complex can't lose when they foment these skirmishes.

If they make Russia stand down they get the oil for Exxon and Chevron. If Russia doesn't stand down they sell jets and submarines to our NATO "allies". Such a deal.

We are so fucked.

Compared to the Fed, the Flash Boys are rank amateurs. It's unbelievable to me that the Fed has managed to short gold into the toilet for what now, two years? Who thinks they can't fake it in the Treasury Markets just as well?

It all works until one day...

David Deida has made some associations that put his work in a bad light with some people, but I find that I agree with most of what he has to say about the downside of feminism. I've read several of his books.

A couple of quotes:

“Every man knows that his highest purpose in life cannot be reduced to any particular relationship. If a man prioritizes his relationship over his highest purpose, he weakens himself, disserves the universe, and cheats his woman of an authentic man who can offer his full, undivided presence.”
― David Deida

“Your woman knows your weaknesses better than anybody. She knows where you will falter and give up. She knows the degree of mediocrity you will settle for. And, she knows your true capacity as a full man, a man of free consciousness and love. Her gift, if she is a good woman, is to test you with her darkest moods, over and over and over, until your consciousness is unperturbed by feminine challenge, and you are able to pervade her with your love, just as you are here to pervade the world. In response to your fearless consciousness, she will drench your world in love and light.”
― David Deida

"The most erotic moment for a woman is feeling that you are Shiva, the divine masculine: unperturbable, totally loving, fully present, and all-pervading. She cannot move you, because you already are what you are, with or without her. She cannot scare you away, because you already penetrate her in fearless love, pervading her heart and body. She cannot distract you, because your one-pointed commitment to truth will not bend to her wiles. Feeling this hugeness of love and freedom in you, she can trust you, utterly, and surrender her testing in celebration of love.

Until she wants to feel you as Shiva again. And then the testing will begin anew. In fact, it is precisely when you are most Shiva-like that she will most test you.”
― David Deida

IMHO the whole idea of equal rights, for women, or for that matter,for  any individual in any group that might have experienced unfairness and discrimination in Western culture, is a prime example of a first world, white people's issue, one that will rapidly lose all relevance as we ride the energy curve back down.

Even in BAU, we get confused around issues of fairness, like equal pay for equal work (which I support fully). Job equality does not mean that men and women are anything alike, or should be treated alike.

We've gotten off track completely because attempts at social justice for women have created a number of negative unforeseen consequences. Like the dissolution of the two parent family. Like women having to wear the pants in so many families...because the men have abandoned their responsibilities (for whatever reason, but I think the social welfare system and the judicial system are culpable to a large degree.)

Wearing the pants turns women into something they were never meant to be. (Manlike in behavior). Not wearing the pants makes men into androgynous wimps.

These people talking on the internet don't get this. But women are slaves to their intuition. That's why it's not uncommon for some so-called feminist woman to bail on her "sensitive New Age guy" and end up having an affair with some much more masculine man, often from a more primitive culture.
