Las Vegas: The Good, the Bad, the Very, Very Ugly

Friday, July 18th, 2014

20140714_112052By Gary Stamper & Anyaa McAndrew

Wow, we just returned from five days in Las Vegas, and we are reflecting today on why we went, what the highlights were, including the hotels, the food, and the entertainment…in other words, the good, the bad and the ugly of Las Vegas and our trip.

First, why would we go to Las Vegas in the first place? After all…We consider ourselves “conscious” and “spiritual,” and, let’s face it: Vegas represents everything that is wrong with our materialistic culture, the epitome of over-the-top decadence.

Heavy metal pollution makes no distinction between how crops are grown. Irrespective of whether farming practices are organic or conventional practices are used, if the likes of cadmium, arsenic, lead, nickel and mercury are in the soil, water or air they can contaminate food and poison the people who consume it.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Apocalypse II

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Commentary by Gary Stamper

Strangelove“In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in his cosmic loneliness.

And God said, “Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done.” And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close to mud as man sat, looked around, and spoke. “What is the purpose of all this?” he asked politely.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE GREAT MORAL CRISIS OF OUR TIME

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Last month, a torrential rainstorm dumped 22 inches of water on the Florida panhandle and Alabama coast in 24 hours — flooding houses, stranding residents, washing out roadways. The lucky were plucked from rooftops by helicopters or rescued in boats, but some perished in the high water.

Meanwhile, California is experiencing the third year of an extreme drought that has bankrupted farmers and pitted agricultural regions against big cities. Climatologists say this is the driest period in the state’s recorded weather history, and its effects may become much more severe.

Isolated events? Mother Nature’s caprice at work? Nope. According to scientists, those are manmade disasters, weather phenomena created (or at least worsened) by human-induced climate change.

The Anthropocene: It’s Not All About Us, By Richard Heinberg

Friday, May 9th, 2014

AnthropoceneThanks to Carolyn Baker,  reposted from Common Dreams

Time to celebrate! Woo-hoo! It’s official: we humans have started a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene. Who’d have thought that just one species among millions might be capable of such an amazing accomplishment?

Let’s wait to stock up on party favors, though. After all, the Anthropocene could be rather bleak.

In Defense of Inaction, by Dave Pollard

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

I have, of late, had a falling out with many of my fellow ‘progressives’, similar I suppose to that of Paul Kingsnorth, who is being savaged by Naomi Klein and others for giving up on the environmental movement and non-local activism, and by humanists for losing faith in our species’ capacity for innovation and change.

Death and Rebirth, Endings and Beginnings

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

reincarnation-in-buddhismDevelopments on the planetary scale also deeply apply to the personal. Death has always been personal, whether it is our own or that of someone we love, an individual or a people. A particularly insidious death occurs when someone we love is dying of cancer, slowly wasting away, a once powerful presence fading as treatment after treatment is abandoned in hope of finding the next treatment to stop what appears to be more and more unstoppable.

I cannot help but be reminded of how very much like humanity’s dilemma this can be, whether it is in the death of a single person, endings, the collapse of a currency, an economic system, or perhaps even the demise of humanity itself.

Money 2It’s building and the bubble is getting closer to bursting. What did you expect, it has been completely unsustainable, a “pyramid scheme” of global proportions and fraud about how we think about money…and it’s all about to change.

Malaysia- plane

With what we now know about the US Government’s multiple roles in state-sponsored terrorism, this must be considered. It’s become increasingly difficult to believe what we’re being told by our leaders and the mainstream media. I’m reminded of the old joke: “How do you know when a politician is lying?…” – ed.
