The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - Media Ignores a Political Candidate by Orangutan in videos

Nice to see this! Thanks! I miss Jon Stewart

I was just thinking about how Stephen Colbert became such a huge disappointment, and Jon Stewart bowed out and walked away (which is really the only option when the media manipulators want you to sell your soul too) No one can replace Jon Stewart, he was really one a kind. We don't have any mainstream voices like this at the moment. (which I think is by design) Jimmy Dore has a good thing going on.

Child Free is the life for me! I don't care what anyone says about it.

I see it from the other side, that popping out exponential kids is the trap! I guess it might be right for some people, who want to spend the majority of their time and money chasing kids around. LOL

I think it's hilarious when people call it selfish or lonely or meaningless not to have kids... I think it's jealousy / misery loves company!

I think religion can stop people from reaching a deeper spiritual experience. I don't know what the nature of god is, but I know what religion teaches us isn't right. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

I really like one phrase you said "practicing active imagination" I love letting my imagination run, also!

There's a great quote about how "an educated mind can entertain a thought without accepting it" (Aristotle) which is so true, its fun to think about outlandish things. It's fun to see where the limits are.

I want to know what is true for me.

My current philosophy is that we live among layers of space that we cannot perceive with our human senses (and barely with our electronic senses because we don't operate on that frequency) and there can be an overlap, an interaction, they can affect us, and we can have an affect in that realm (which is why there was increased ufo activity around nuclear bomb tests, which is extremely fascinating to me!)
I'm rambling, but I definitely don't need modern religion to be my full spiritual self, I say daily thanks to the infinite layers of creation around me, in plant and animal form, in the winds and the seasons... I can't believe it's September already. Peace!

Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. — Thomas Jefferson, 1807 by hennaojisan in quotes

Julian Assange’s father warns WikiLeaks’ publisher’s health is “declining rapidly” in Belmarsh Prison. When he travelled from Australia to London “we waited and were told that we couldn’t come" into the prison for a pre-arranged visit “No reason was given except there were conflicting appointments” by EndlessSunflowers in conspiracy

He related that when he travelled from Australia to London two-and-a-half months ago, “we waited and were told that we couldn’t come” into the prison for a pre-arranged visit with Assange.

“No reason was given,” Shipton said, except that “there were conflicting appointments made with prison doctors to come and see him. So, they use the visiting times to have his medical examiners examine him, which means that a social visit needs to be cancelled.”

Shipton, along with a WikiLeaks staff member and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, returned the following week for another arranged visit. “We waited 46 minutes for Julian to arrive,” he said. The prison authorities claimed that they had “forgotten” to notify Assange of the visit, “so they had to go and find him and bring him down.”

This resulted in the two-hour visit, which Assange is entitled to, being reduced to just one hour. “To travel all the way from Australia to see Julian and to get only an hour, it seems cruel to me,” Shipton said.

Asked by Grech whether he thought this was the result of incompetence, or a deliberate attack on Assange’s rights, Shipton answered: “I’m told that often that is done with a well-known prisoner to assert authority over him and over his visitors.”

"I believe there's beauty in all dimensions..." Richard Feynman by EndlessSunflowers in quotes

Another Favorite Feynman Quote:

“I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts.” Richard Feynman

"They know the ruling institutions are dysfunctional and despised. They know the media, Wall Street, and the big banks are distrusted and hated. They know the criminal justice system is a sham. They know social mobility is, in effect, nonexistent. And, most importantly, they know that the financial system is not sustainable. They also know they are to blame."

At what point do these genius conservatives realize that "go forth and multiply" is just more religious mumbo-jumbo and that the exploding human population is actually a problem... any self awareness going on with them, at all?

I have 41 items checked out from my library at the moment (our limit is 75) audiobooks, cds, movies, graphic novels, books of course! fiction and non fiction, cookbooks, wood working books, sci fi, mystery, dr. seuss, man I love the public library.

I'm so glad it exists as an ancient concept, because there's no way we could implement something as beneficial and sensical as "socialist" community libraries these days, lol! love you saidit
