Notice, dog is god spelled backwards.
Siriusly!
Not only that, God and Satan behave like dogs and cats, an animal
believed to be associated with the Devil in the Dark Ages --
particularly if it is black.
You are dissing Catz in the i can haz cheeseburger era ?
Take a hint from voltaire on his deathbed;
Do you renounce the Devil ?
Nou nou, my good man, this is no time to be making enemies.
Then we are not talking just about religion anymore, but superstition.
Oh, make no mistake, Cats *ARE* evul, that's why i <3 em.
They are so honest about it.
Unlike women ... :)
Women? The relationship between women and cats is obvious: there you
have the word "pussycat." Do I need to elaborate? I don't think so.
They can also scratch badly and they can be very loving. And they have
a mind of their own, unlike dogs which are easily tamed.
That's where witchcraft comes handy. In Afro-Cuban culture and voodoo
the two are mixed together and we have a bunch of animals sacrificed.
Nah, witchcraft is quite low brow everyday magic.
AFAIK there is no curse to do anything solar/galactic.
Pretty much here and neighbours.
Yeah, witchcraft is for the lesser gods, while the bigger gods (the
god of Abraham, for example) can just curse humanity to suffering.
Jesus was a sacrificial lamb for all, so the story goes. It all makes
sense, you see?
Sure.
I hardly see any demonic possessions, so perhaps there actually was a
sacrifice.
Now let me ask you this and I want you to be honest:

Who do you rather be sacrificed for your sins, a god or a chicken?

That's the same logic Christians apply to Jesus. He died for their
sins, so they say. I rather have a chicken.

Exactly. But the Romans are not around anymore, so guess who picks up
the tab.

Funny, the Romans converted but they never got much out of it. Their
Empire crumbled soon after that.

The word "senator" is still used.

If this is true it only claimed it in a symbolic way. 1453 to 1776 is a
bit of a jump, and anyway the Roman Empire was an absolute monarchy from
quite early on, though there is no precise date.

I thought it was rather the fact that America chose to be a republic

word. No subversive ideas such as direct democracy.

I don't think so. They talk about meaningless issues such as "change."
Nothing concrete such as campaign reform, you know.

The city of New York though has some kind of experiment going on. No
campaign contribution larger than 250 bucks. We may say that
corporations and special interests run the show when no such
limitations are in place.

The rest of the country may have yet to experience democracy. This is

I walk in it say a mile where I could have ridden a bike 10 miles. Now
I'm part of the "idiotic evil masses" who drive without a second
thought. They are part of the consumer society that drives wars and
injustice in the world. You know, just yesterday a poll said most
people were unwilling to pay more for clothing that was made in safe
facilities, in humane conditions. I'm talking about the building that
collapsed killing 200 people. I'm willing to pay 15 bucks for flip
flops to make it safe and humane for them. The idiotic evil masses
must have heard of conditions in Nigeria. They must have heard of
Climate Change...
The question is who's the puppet master in all this game.
You are.
You are the one
who sees your outside as being
such as you see it.
Your outside can be seen
as being as much you
as is your inside.
Why chop yourself in half?
Why contend that it isn't you?
Is some other body, somebody else,
controlling how you see things?
It has been said
" You don't see things as they are.
  You see things as you are."

.
Sorry, we are talking about THE BIG TRUTHS, such as the Earth is NOT
flat and this is NOT a democracy.

What took so long for the world to find out?

I thought it was rather the fact that America chose to be a republic
rather than a democracy like in Greece. Again, "senator" is a key
word. No subversive ideas such as direct democracy.
Do the "Democrats" have implementing a democracy (rather than a
republic) in their election manifesto?

I don't think so. They talk about meaningless issues such as "change."
Nothing concrete such as campaign reform, you know.
The city of New York though has some kind of experiment going on. No
campaign contribution larger than 250 bucks. We may say that
corporations and special interests run the show when no such
limitations are in place.
The rest of the country may have yet to experience democracy. This is

I walk in it say a mile where I could have ridden a bike 10 miles. Now
I'm part of the "idiotic evil masses" who drive without a second
thought. They are part of the consumer society that drives wars and
injustice in the world. You know, just yesterday a poll said most
people were unwilling to pay more for clothing that was made in safe
facilities, in humane conditions. I'm talking about the building that
collapsed killing 200 people. I'm willing to pay 15 bucks for flip
flops to make it safe and humane for them. The idiotic evil masses
must have heard of conditions in Nigeria. They must have heard of
Climate Change...
The question is who's the puppet master in all this game.
You are.
You are the one
who sees your outside as being
such as you see it.
Your outside can be seen
as being as much you
as is your inside.
Why chop yourself in half?
Why contend that it isn't you?
Is some other body, somebody else,
controlling how you see things?

appropriate tool to snip or change the world.

block selection of text by pressing and holding in the area of text you're

I'll try it later. The tablet is much lighter, but now I got the real

I think the Beatles' revolution is actually quite good. Too much
revolution is bad for you, too little is also bad...

Let's review the lyrics:

"Revolution"

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We don't love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright, al...

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

Don't you know know it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright

Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright

***

OK, revolution is a way of evolution when things need fixing fast.
It's like the dinosaurs needed the asteroid to make room for the
mammals. Now things need fixing once again.

Too many gorillas in the jungle. There's no place for the monkey to
have fun and that's very bad. Not even God is safe from his shit.

John Lennon was just an idealist. And that's no good. You must be
practical with the revolution. We need bike facilities and bullet
trains, for example. There's no room for war anymore. The drone is a
reliable technology. And the mighty tablet, that's the one you touch
with your simian arms, is our best hope, provided you read the right
texts and not waste your time chatting and shopping.

Yes, I'm addicted to the new technologies too but we must go out
whatever the price. No matter how hostile the jungle is. It's very
hostile. Now what? Yes, go out with your technology. Very smart.

You also think too little revolution is bad? Thank you.

Yep, it works, slowly but surely. I do it by control and arrows.

Or the UK is an epigone of America. Two parties with small variations

Now nobody believes in democracy anymore. It was said democracies
don't go to war. They just want their resources. The machine must not
slow down in any way. Wars are big business as well.

I think a bullet train is a better investment though. No matter how
corrupt the system is. Romans are remembered by their aqueducts not
their conquests. And water supplies are running out so we must look
for solutions, or practice frugality. That's a great idea that
capitalism has a hard time swallowing. That's why we are on the verge

Could you identify it? I'm interested in that kind of thing. While NY
looks like what Europeans think of as a city, I found in, eg, Louisiana,
that the cities are not really cities but collections of buildings.

Myth, after all, is what we believe naturally.  History is what we must
painfully learn and struggle to remember.  -Albert Goldman
Very little variation and yet they hate each other with a passion?
This side of the Atlantic "liberal" is worse than gay.
I would be afraid to say such word out loud. If I were to come out of
the closet I think it would be safe to admit being a liberal in NYC.
Yes, I think so.  The Law and Order stable is generally liberal and
Lennie (pbuh) was sometimes suspected of reactionary tendencies.
Well, what counts is that the parks are free of homeless and the
streets free of litter.
That's the problem in my reactionary town, mostly corruption. Though I
think that's a bipartisan issue.
Could you identify it?  I'm interested in that kind of thing.  While NY
looks like what Europeans think of as a city, I found in, eg, Louisiana,
that the cities are not really cities but collections of buildings.
Lafayette, Lake Charles and even Baton Rouge do not seem busy at any
time of day.
I said it last summer: "If you hate people, you'll love America --
except if you live in NYC."

The sprawl atomizes people (what a fantastic word). People are
naturally SOCIAL until they get behind the wheel of the automobile.
The only friendly vehicle that could traverse a city (another nice
word) without destroying communities is the bicycle. Public
transportation too, but that requires some burning of gas and a lot of
patience in a spread out city. Buses can't really adapt to your route
as well.

Last summer I landed 100 miles from NYC, in a little town called
Woodbourne and I thought of Heaven and Hell. Absolutely beautiful but
absolutely nothing to do. No trails to hike, something the Europeans
enjoy as well. NYC is different. There are trails not far from the
city or at least as close as being practical. Central Park is a nice
getaway in the middle of the Urban Jungle. The rest of America is a
DESERT for the most part. Parks are full of homeless in my area, so
that's something to avoid. You see few people and when you find it's
often the wrong people. An Oasis is hard to find.

Hey, I got my nice desert cap...

My guess is that those "beach path lights" were installed and paid for
by the local municipality.
Have you considered the possibility that WASTE FEEDS CORRUPTION?
Just a thought. No democracy, no feedback from the people, no people
riding at night.
People are probably afraid of the "lighted tunnel" they are said to go
through when they die. But the Wise Man is not afraid of that. It's
all dark.
Thus spoke Zarathustra...
"You have evolved from worm to man, but much within you is still worm.
Once you were apes, yet even now man is more of an ape than any of the
apes."
-- Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra

Who else needs the alpha leader as much as man?
Man needs God, of course. No one more than Nietzsche.
Why, the placebo effect? Bad news is better than good news that are
not realistic. Climate Change is a good example of that. The good news
is that we can walk or ride a bike to minimize its effect. Christians
expect Jesus to come and rescue the world from Satan. Who's Satan
anyway, Big Oil?
Avoiding reality may feel good for a while.
Man only gets in trouble when he looks for an "alpha leader" among his
own kind.
Nietzsche made mistakes, big ones. Superman is dead.
But then, man is the monkey who loves trouble.
True. The only hope is in the Tablet, meaning the books and culture we
can get through that wonder of technology. The Nook was on sale this
weekend.
The following is basically a monologue, no need for debate...
The TABLET may be the most important first step toward saving big
money and cleaning up thejungle. As the Nook allows us to borrow
books from the library withoutbeingexposed to the odors the homeless
and old books give out, I can see the library as a HOTPOT & E-BOOK
facility. The bathrooms, now a place for the homeless to wash
themselves, may finally close as the libraries themselves. Hey, many
of our parks have already closed their restrooms partially or totally
to avoid the homeless, so you must go behind the bushes yourself.
Maybe the two, libraries and parks, should close for good.
And this in turn can save big money to Obama's precarious budget.
Guess what, I'm enrolling in e-book borrowing, and this in turn may
avoid diseases often found in old books...
Man needs God.
God is there for man, He patiently waits for all of us to return home
for the feast; but God has also seen fit to give the monkeys what we
call "free will."
You're free to turn your back on God.
No skin off my nose, 'cept I'm responsible for you.
Actually there's no single individual god. There are MANY but they
ain't bothering with the monkeys destroying their environment due to
OVERPOPULATION & DEFORESTATION...

That's a metaphor not found in the Bible, for it commands the people
to "prosper and multiply," a recipe for disaster and war. It seems the
gods are made of stone or something.
you violated my freedom of speech... or in usenet terms... to post.
Sorry, the gods are made of stone or something. We only shape them and
carry them to the final destination. From the quarry to their resting
place...

You want a lion's body with a human head? Yes, we specialize in that.
We got 3 million slaves on standby. Maybe 300 millions. Whatever you
want. You want a god with wings or such as a millipede? You know, I
think god is a worm, not a roach. It would be hard to sell.
pack your bags and wait to be escorted out.
we, me and being, were making you look good monkey. we were
translating for you into two languages that you forgot monkey... are
you sure you are a monkey? because you are a mere "then" away from
being dropped into a real monkey world.
The real make believe world? I'd be afraid of that.
