Lying Politicians And Words by George Carlin - From YouTube

Another one from George Carlin...words and their use and disuse.

Doublespeak, Ambiguity, Evasive...etc..
"From the cowardice that shrinks from new truth, From the laziness that is content with half truths, From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth, Oh God of Truth, deliver us." – Ancient Prayer

The Truth About Republicans by George Carlin - From YouTube

A little clip from George Carlin's great work.

Right being and doing are at the forefront here.  Not choosing sides.  That is the Hegelian Dialectic and thus confuses many.

Overview of America - From YouTube

A wonderfully done, informative overview of politics, trade, history, the Founding Fathers, etc..

Please go into this with a curious mindset... regardless if you are familiar with the society that put this on.  

We (must inherently) have loyalty to Concepts, Ideas, Metaphors, and Principles (and Good [Remember that "Still Small Voice"] ones at that)...and must be wary of having a fixed mindset to a Word.  Anyone can use words and turn around and do anything they wish, hence the term "Doublespeak".  Living by, from, and defending (Right) Concepts & Virtues and such and not by Words alone is sublime & profound and evident, followable, non-arguable, and honorable, so on.

The concept anyone seeks is Balance & Harmony with the occasional hint of Risk & Adventure, to keep things Real...  We of course have different personal ideas about this, which is the Relative... Thus the sublime Laws that govern are Absolute.  You have your idea and I have mine...Relative.  Where the ideas fundamentally stem from is the the air we breath.

No Party is correct if they do harm to others directly or indirectly.  WWIII is a war on the mind, public opinion, your idea of where to spend your dollars...etc..  Thus we come to the we really have free will in a massively over propagandized society?  The idea of free will is complex and yet simple.  We live here, on the earth, with others.  We have free will to think and do within the context of the earth & our being and face the effects of our causality.  No doubt "The All" that created us is in us..."The All is All and is in All".  So, we have a Guide or Law to follow and from that our free will begins...we can choose to listen to our intuition (call it what you like) or not.
The sequence of nations, as observed by Alexander Tyler, 1750, follows a predictable pattern “from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependence back again into bondage."

Why are Americans so easy to manipulate?

SATURDAY, OCT 13, 2012 09:00 AM CDT

We may be loathe to admit it, but behaviorism and consumerism are cut from the same cloth.

Why are Americans so easy to manipulate?(Credit: Sebastian Kaulitzki via Shutterstock)
This article originally appeared on AlterNet.
What a fascinating thing! Total control of a living organism!  — psychologist B.F. Skinner
The corporatization of society requires a population that accepts control by authorities, and so when psychologists and psychiatrists began providing techniques that could control people, the corporatocracy embraced mental health professionals.

Synthetic Food, Smart Pills and… Kangaroo Butlers?


“Orwellian” illustration from the 1965 comic strip, “Our New Age”
According to Athelstan Spilhaus, writing the comic strip “Our New Age” was his way of slipping a little subliminal education into the Sunday funnies. Each week the strip took a different topic—such as  ocean currents or heredity or the moons of Mars—and explained in a very straightforward way just what made that area of scientific discovery so interesting. Sometimes, he would dabble in futurism, looking at automated hospitals or the robot teachers of tomorrow—but the December 26, 1965 edition of the strip stands out as its most forward-looking. Spilhaus clearly had some fun writing about these mid-’60s predictions that included everything from citizens voting on specific laws by telephone to the dapper-looking kangaroo servants of the future.

By Steph in Animals & HabitatsNature & Ecosystems

Have you ever watched a grasshopper scratch its chin, or examined all of the tiny hairs on the face of a bee? Have you seen the world around you reflected in a drop of dew? Unless you’re a macro photographer – taking extreme close-up images of insects, flowers and other objects – you’ve probably never had the chance. These 16 amazing photographs give us up-close-and-personal views of flowers, creepy-crawlies, geckos and water droplets.

By VC: Irrational Consumerism (or The Few Companies Who Feed the World)

Not many people realize that most of the processed foods available on the market, whether they be in groceries or fast-food chains, all come from the same few companies.  Even less people realize that these companies are major actors in elite organizations who decide health, social and economic policies around the world. We’ll look at the big three companies who feed the world, their many brands and the tactics they undertake to make people crave their products.
If one were to carefully study the labels on packaged products in an average grocery store, one would probably notice that the same company names appear repeatedly: Nestlé, Kraft, General Mills and a few others. Many brands offering good ol’ fashioned homemade or all-natural/organic foods are nothing more than subsidiaries of these few world-wide mega-companies. The major difference between the main brand and the subsidiaries is packaging and advertising, which are targeted to reach different markets. In order to preserve the carefully crafted image surrounding a product, connections to the mother company are often conveniently hidden. Imagine an advertisement for bottled water going like this: “Drink pure, clear, refreshing Aquafina water, bottled with care from remote natural sources in the Himalayas … BROUGHT TO YOU BY PEPSICO, THE MAKER OF TACO BELL AND CHEETOS MIGHTY ZINGERS!” That would probably spoil the healthy, natural image they are trying to create for the product.

Back to Eden by Paul Gautschi

A wonderful video about gardening!

Back To Eden OFFICIAL FILM from Dana & Sarah Films on Vimeo.
Official Website:
Produced and Directed by: Dana Richardson and Sarah Zentz

After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul's gardens and orchards.

"Back to Eden" invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being implemented in diverse climates around the world.

The Green Universe: Jor-El Foretells Krypton's Apocalypse

The Green Universe: Jor-El

NASA-East CoastSensational news stories can make badly behaved celebrities and bickering politicians seem larger than life. Luckily, the scientists who study the vast universe maintain a different perspective. This week, we'll bring you quotes and videos that reveal nature's star power.
Jor-El Foretells Krypton's Apocalypse
Today's quote draws from the realm of fiction. When Superman's home planet of Krypton faces certain destruction, Jor-El presents his scientific data to the governing council. Rather than heed the warning, the politicians laugh it off: "This is an insult to our intelligence! . . . What does he take us for, fools?"
Hmm, does this sound familiar?
Watch this classic video clip to see an eerily current scenario.

It might look like a grainy photograph, but take a closer look. See that tiny little dot in the middle of the yellowish band of light? Carl Sagan asked the NASA operators of the Voyager I to snap this picture as the spacecraft was leaving our solar system, to remind us of this very simple fact: "Everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was lived out their life . . . lived there."

Spell It Out: 16 Abbreviated Company Names Explained

Spell It Out: 16 Abbreviated Company Names Explained 

by Ethan Trex - May 6, 2010 - 11:36 AM  {VIA - mental_floss}
Dozens of companies use acronyms or initials in their names, but how well do you know what the abbreviated letters 
mean? Let’s take a look at the etymologies behind a few abbreviated company names.

1. CVS

Sorry, drugstore fans, there aren’t three fatcat pharmacists with these initials running around out there. When the pharmacy chain was founded in Lowell, MA in 1963, it was known as “Consumer Value Stores.” Over time the name became abbreviated to simply CVS.

2. K-Mart

Longtime five-and-dime mogul Sebastian S. Kresge opened his first larger store in Garden City, Michigan, in 1962. The store was named K-Mart after him. (Kresge had earned the right to have a store named for him; he opened up his new venture at the tender age of 94.)
