Oil

I find it interesting that many people feel we should open up more land and water to oil companys so we can lower the oil price. This would be a great idea if the scarcity of oil was to blame. It seems that the real deal is the oil companies already hold millions of acres untaped leases. So why would they need anymore? I believe that the answer is, they want it all tied up in legal leases and then they can raise the price even more. We should not let these thieves hold any more leases, They want to hold ALL the cards. We must not give them anymore. They will rob us of our natural resources.

The Collar by the Warr Brothers

THE COLLAR – Trailer

The Collar
I hope everyone has gone to Myspacetv and voted on my friends lastest project “The Collar”.

I remember reading the script and feeling all emotional. The lives of the working class and the struggles with management are a story that is worth watching. The film is done in my home town and the story line is one every factory person can relate too.Hats off to “The Collar”!

Our best wishes for The WARR BROTHERS, We are proud to call you friends. You are Generation Cobweb. To all those who dream, we look to you with praises.

God, the word

One must accept that no two people can share the identical emotional and mental images as another. The best we can hope for is a rudimentary understanding. This makes discussion of philosophy so darn interesting. Mention God to anyone and then try to get every aspect of his or her idea, or “meaning” of that word and you end up with a great never-ending debate. For even the words used must be defined in the same manner or the true “knowing” will never be achieved. It would be a debate that would lead to forever. How can two people ever really share the same reality of thought? Maybe silence is the only way?

George Carlin dies at 71

George Carlin died yesterday around 6:00 pm (PST) at St. John’s Hospital, Santa Monica after being admitted for chest pain. It’s always sad when someone as brilliant and insightful as George Carlin passes.

Just five days ago Carlin was notified he was this years recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

“In his lengthy career as a comedian, writer, and actor, George Carlin has not only made us laugh, but he makes us think,” Kennedy Center Chairman Stephen Schwarzmann said in the announcement of the award. “His influence on the next generation of comics has been far-reaching.”

Carlin is reported to have replied, “Thank you Mr. Twain, Have your people call my people.”

Here’s one of my favorite Carlin routines – it’s hard to pick one as he has so many but this set is still so spot on. Carlin’s humor is timeless, as this video proves. I do have to warn you the language is uncensored, if that offends you don’t watch.

Bet on Opra

Today, Bette Midler came on the Ophra network to promote her new Las Vegas show. During the show they gave a woman free tickets to her upcoming show in Vegas for her commitment to the very cause that Bet and Ophra claim are their loves.

My beef with all of this is that Vegas is on the top wasteful cities in America. They blow so much electricity just to promote the very business that is built on losers. They waste so much water in just evaporation from the pretty pools that has changed the weather around the region. Vegas is a wasteful city one might ask why or how can someone who claims to be “green” promote themselves in a town that represents waste!

Ophra, Bette, if you truely care about what you say and mean it for ALL, it should start with you first. By bringing your fans to a place that will take your fans money, waste so much resources while doing it, and will waste so much jet fuel in the process, it seems to be one step forward and five steps back.

True knowledge

As many of you know prayer works, but why? We do not always have the same image of God in our minds when we pray, we don’t even call him by the same name sometimes, but still the same, prayer seems to work. Why?

Prayer means different things to different people, for now we will agree it is a focus of mind towards a specific thought, or desire. We usually go to a place inside ourselves and look at the world as if we are not capable of failure without an exterior help, Gods help. We alow all things we cannot do to be done by a higher power.

Thought has power. A great master once said “All these things I do, you too shall do and greater!”. If he did not mean it why say it? I believe that we have inate power from the creator to do all things, sometimes selfdoubt gets in the way and we need to as for help, but is it really someone higher than us or could we be allowing ourselve to do what we thought we couldn’t?

Where are we?

Life is like the wear on a car tire in that once you start going down the road of life, you can tell by the wear on the tires how things have been going. Rough roads often show different patterns than a car driven in the city or one that has been highway all the way. Your life starts to show wear on you in the same way and those that can see the patterns can understand the path you have taken.

Obama Clinton?

If Obama becomes the next president, and Clinton gets the vice -president, it would pose a perfect situation for those behind the power seat to create a sacrificial lamb, creating the very situation that could result in the very real police state that we all have been talking about.

Remember, those of us who believe that the Clintons are just another Bush in sheep’s clothing, are terrified at the thought of the next President after a major domestic crisis becoming a dictator, and even scarier, that person could be Clinton.

Who ever it will be will not be who we as a nation will want. We should never recognize a dictator as our leader. That will be the time Americans must stand up for what our ancestors sacrificed lives for, Freedom and a government lead by the people for the people!
