I know I am but what are you?

“All religions are equally false and equally true, depending on how you use them. You can use them in the service of the ego, or you can use them in the service of the Truth. If you believe only your religion is the Truth, you are using it in the service of the ego. Used in such a way, religion becomes ideology and creates an illusory sense of superiority as well as division and conflict between people. In the service of the Truth, religious teachings represent signposts or maps left behind by awakened humans to assist you in spiritual awakening, that is to say, in becoming free of identification with form.”

Kicking back, bro

Economy.  The FED built the “explosive” device, Big Banks pushed the button, the Bush Administration fanned the flames, and the Obama Administration is kicking back having a beer and waiting for the smoke to clear.

Puppet show.  At the very best we are letting the same stupid policies come back to bite us in the rear.  I am tired of watching the corporate puppet show.  I might as well buy all the political talking bobble-heads, line them up on the desk, and have them run the Government.  Raise taxes? Bobble-heads? Lower taxes? Bobble-heads?  Drill the Arctic for oil?  Bobble-heads?  Raise the debt ceiling?  Bobble-heads?  Did Democrats get drunk last night and give poor people free Martinis, again?  Bobble-heads?  Did the Republicans steal your lunch money and make inappropriate comments about rape victims, again? Bobble-heads?  Shall we just throw out the rule-of-law, agree that corporations are people, and refuse to acknowledge the rampant financial fraud, swindling, and shenanigans?  Bobble-heads? I think they are saying, Yes.  They are saying Yes and No. Yes and No?  Right?  Left, right, yes, no.  Okay. Got it.

Election season diarrhea.  Is is just me, or does political discourse in America grievously resemble a misleading attempt to sit down to tea and Cheetos with the Mad-hatter inside the oval at a Nascar race within a vast cultural wilderness of bewilderment?   The spectrum of “Save money, Live better” party politics would be much more informative interesting with interpretive dancers dressed like Elvis and Jesus, dipping marshmallows into a Chocolate Wonderfall provided by the Golden Corral.  So far the 2012 Election is a few kittens short of a Pussy Riot and a couple of Budweiser’s short of a Joe-six-pack.  Pass the remote, I’ve fallen and I can’t reach the TV.  Pause.  (Sound of static)  I will take your silence as nonverbal agreement.  SQUAREROOTOFZERO
