It looks like the war is ripping the hell out of the top, while the government is doing its best to feed the bottom. Meanwhile, the middle class is stagnating with nothing to do. The middle class is capable of negotiating an end to the war, because peace is better for business, and the lower end can be put to work. Let's invigorate the middle class.

I don't think Jesus's aim was to be perfect. I believe his idea is to be as reasonable as you can.
We all enjoy our creature comforts. They enhance personal incentive. But be careful not to allow creature comforts to become chemical addictions. The Law will not smile on you.
I think I know what the U.S. Government is trying to do: sober up its people.
I have a new theory for the Catholics concerning Jesus. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
The Old Testament's "Eye for an Eye, Tooth for a Tooth" was only meant for the purpose of deterrence. If deterrence did not work, and two belligerents went after each other, what purpose did that serve?
In the New Testament, if a belligerent struck you, Jesus's idea was not to strike back. The general idea is to reason out an argument, but sometimes that doesn't work. Jesus has a different form of deterrence. If a belligerent goes after you, if you can absorb the blow the first time, if there is a second blow, it won't be as bad as the first, and that will probably be about it. Reason may then work better. The belligerent needs to see that he's an a---- in his own mind's eye, then by his own conscience, he will stop. This is not 100% scientifically provable, but this form of deterrence works better than the first.
One thing for certain, rocket science never works.
Probably every gardener out there sooner or later talks to her plants. If you were a doctor, certainly you'd talk to your patient to find out where it hurts. I used to be a forest fireman. I would talk to the tree to find out where it hurt. You would certainly think I'm nuts if I said the tree could talk back! Would you cut down a tree if it were only trying to establish a channel of communication?
The Earth has been with us a long time, hasn't it? So has the Sun. I believe there is a profound relationship between the Sun and our Earth. I think the Earth's true name is Terry (as in terrain, territory), and the Sun's name is actually Samantha, the Sun-Mom. Together, I think they share a very subtle intelligence about life here. Just how long has the Natural Environment been with us, before many attempted to destroy it?Read More »from Long Live the Sun-Mom
I believe between now and 2012, Samantha will come to Terry"s rescue. Through all types of solar activity, Samantha will effectively knock out the electrical power grid. She will short circuit most technology, particularly that which sucks out Terry's blood, much the way a mosquito sucks out human's blood. She will destroy the nuclear bomb's ability to function. She will burn out all the high powered brains of the gluttons who think they run things, through strokes and stuff. She will restore the Natural Environment. You see, backwards progress works, doesn't it?
We need a Grinch to slither down the chimney of every American home and take away (with relish) all the telescreens, satellite radios, cell phones, monitors, and everything else that can be fitted with an eavesdropping device, so we can maintain our own personal privacy, and avoid the paranoia of too much Big Brother, so we can sleep better at night. The Grinch can truck all the gizmos up a slope and dump them off the side of a mountain. Then we'll all breathe easier. Thank you Grinch!
If you'd like to get it right, use sound reasoning.
