Prosperity is Forward

Posted By: Randy GageApril 22, 2013

Today many countries celebrate Earth Day.  A noble act, and protecting our planet is vital.  But be wary of negative and limiting memes that often surround this cause…

Conventional thinking is seldom very insightful, and sometimes the surface problems aren’t the real causes.  And the answer is not moving backwards.

The planet is made up mostly of water.  Yet kids die of thirst every day.  That is a crime.  But it’s not because it’s a water shortage.  It’s because the process of desalinizing water has not become viable enough to work everywhere in the world.  Like a lot of challenges, the answer lies in innovation.

There are those who would make you feel guilty for driving your car, reading a print newspaper, or even using electricity.  But even if everyone agreed to forsake all cars, boats, trains, planes and go back to candlelight (and good luck selling this idea) – the world would still be facing serious problems, just from the growing population.

Over the next decade we will face some of the most daunting problems humankind has ever seen.  We need better ways to grow food, supply energy, build shelter, travel and many other things.   But the solutions will come from moving forward, not backward.  The free enterprise system fosters innovation and inventions, and these are the things that create solutions.

So celebrate Earth Day.  Just know the best way to save Mother Earth is with the power of ideas.

  1. If you hold your hands over your heads with all fingers out-stretched, you will see a very interesting PATTERN - 6 W's - on one hand: World Wide Web and on the other hand, Wildlife, Wicked (Wisdom in disguise) and WEALTH - as Randy opines, without that last one, LIFE ON EARTH GOES EXTINCT - quickly! Lets get BUSY, shall we? (note: WildLife is a DUALITY - defn no. 1: EXTREME EXPERIENCES - MargaritaVille! defn no. 2: PRESERVING Earth's precious living systems) DUH!!

  2. Yes, the power of ideas will help mother earth.  I totally agree on that one.  We need new innovations in transportation and clean water.  As for free enterprise, I am pretty sure that it has a big share of the blame in how our earth became so polluted in the first place.  It wasn't because of inventions, it was because greedy people wanted money instead of the best ideas.  Tesla's electricity would have been far more beneficial to the earth, but we can thank some of the Greediest people of all time for killing that.
    By the way, who prevents us from having transportation that is cleaner?  Because trust me their have been innovations that would have made transportation a lot more clean.

  3. It's interesting you posted this today, as I was sleepless for awhile last night after having screened "Lincoln", Spielberg's Oscar nominated film. It was a harsh reminder of the closed minds and 'structure' that many of these limiting beliefs and memes came from.. And it scared the heck out of me! Fortunately, today the world embraces innovation and vision unlike those days!.. So yes, I agree wholeheartedly Randy..  Let's get a BOOM for Randy!!

  4. Annieb spoken like one of Heart's (rock band) greatest songs of all time (from 40-odd years ago) - Oh, Annie, Dreamboat Annie, little SHIP OF DREAMS! (and it is there, right in your name (as the solution is in their song, and other bands/songs of that era), JUST awaking from a 2x rip-van-winkle-esque slumber) - but the REAL UN-slumber is JUST getting rolling - 10 years since ISIS (Intl Station In Space) ascended to LEO (not the connie, silly - LOW EARTH ORBIT - and she (the ancient Egyptian HIJACKED GODDESS), is NONE TOO THRILLED with the men of the H.S.category of critters - time for VIGO (of Les Miserables and Wagner's Ring Operas and Lord Of The Rings itself) to get the R back - RECRUITING, Recursive (viral) Radical processes - so SUDDENLY, Planet Earth becomes VIRGO again for the first time SFB (Since Farming Began) - a 9,000 year time-out...ENDING as I type this! - How's THAT FOR AN IDEA, RG?? (wicked smile)

  5. What is really sad about all of this is the "limiting" belief that we have a "limited" supply of anything. This "limiting" belief drives prices at our gas pumps and it also causes countless deaths all over the world due to abortion because we do not have "enough" to support the population.
    When I start to see the "Global Warming Guru's" living in the manner they prescribe for everyone else, I will start to take them serious but there is already too much exposed about fixing the numbers to support their theory that I don't know how anyone can take them seriously anymore.

  6. lifetosuccess There is an UNlimited supply in the VERSE, however when you change the lens aka PERSPECTIVE to a SINGLE GLOBE (like Earth), you run SMACK INTO a meme known as SCARCITY.  Anyone NOT understanding / addressing scarcity is simply FI - like Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum aka a FINANCIAL / ECONOMIC ILLITERATE (common among humans who NO LONGER READ ANYTHING) - If you are sitting in downtown Beverly Hills, or Tokyo, or Rio DJ, it might APPEAR that there is an ABUNDANCE of resources - but like those funny MIRRORS on cars, appearances can be deceiving.  It would be WONDERFUL if we could simply toss the equivalent of a COSMIC FISHING LINE out into the Asteroid Belt and REEL IN all that yummy raw material.  Which works well as long as you SUSPEND REALITY or GOBBLE DOWN A TON OF HALLUCINAGENIC SUBSTANCES or some such, but NOT if you get out your microscope, your telescope, and your WHITE BOARD and DO THE EFFING MATH (again, something humans really, really SUCK AT, again, largely because humans ALMOST NEVER EVER READ ANYMORE). (sigh) (I grow weary of pointing this out) - READ, PEOPLE, READ SOMETHING BESIDES THE FUNNIES and SPORTS [email protected]! Please!!
    Oh, and it's CLIMATE CHANGE and it's as REAL as the 1.5 BILLION SHARKS we shredded for SEX SOUP or the INCREDIBLE amount of MERCURY we've dumped into the world's oceans courtesy of our yummy COAL-BURNING HABIT or....well - just go FREAKING READ SOMETHING FOR A CHANGE or TURN ON NAT GEO WILD or ANIMAL PLANET OR DISCOVERY CHANNEL FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS and THEN REPORT REPORT !! sheesh

  7. Speaking of limiting the piece below was published by Bloomberg Business Week.
    I lost all respect I had for them after reading this.
    Yes, being born rich does give you more opportunities and more connections, but believing you can do nothing about your station in life is learned helplessness and I am appalled that they would publish crap like this.
    http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-04-22/how-did-the-worlds-rich-get-that-way-luck#r=rss
    I thought it was a load of hogwash and encourages people to not take responsibility for anything.

  8. ThomasMrak Bloomberg is DEAD ON ACCURATE.  All you have to do to "prove" the theory is look at the Forbes List 30 years ago, then today.  And / or how many on the F-list DOUBLED their net worth in the past, say 20 years (that should be easy to do, right? WRONG!!) unless you were BORN INTO IT, a billion dollars is about as likely for a pauper as a trip TO ANOTHER STAR SYSTEM.  It did NOT say you COULDN'T do it - only that as the number of ZEROES INCREASES, the ODDS go down to NEAR ZERO that you will.  This is NOT THEORY.  It is REALITY.  No different than GRAVITY or that the SUN IS LIKELY TO BE THERE AGAIN TOMORROW - THAT sort of reality. By BUYING INTO THE HYPE of Horatio Alger, the RICH and POWERFUL have everyone PRECISELY where they want - INFECTED BY A MCV - Mind Control Virus - good luck getting rid of those - they are harder to shake than AVIAN FLU VIRUS (chortling)

  9. ThomasMrak As for the GAP in America - between RICH and POOR - the BIGGEST GAP ON EARTH, BTW, just head for TED TALK and pay attention to Wilkinson for a few minutes of your precious time and LEARN SOME ECONOMIC THEORY! Eh? http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_wilkinson.html (note: TED TALK is the hangout of LOTS OF RIGHTY-TIGHTIES) - Risky Is The New Safe, right?? Thanks, RG for the TOWN HALL - when those in power FINALLY LOSE EDITORIAL CONTROL (like in THIS THREAD), then THINGS WILL END BADLY FOR THEM - guaranteed - they do NOT appreciate loss of Editorial CONTROL - never have, never will!!

  10. StevenWayneJohnson ThomasMrak I don't believe in Horatio Alger either.
    He taught people that with a bit of pluck and luck people can be successes.
    I also agree that people being wealthier across the board would be more beneficial.
    However, any attempt to use force to do this does not work and hurts people.
    I would however like opinions from some of the people who are actually wealthy like Randy and some of the people here.

  11. StevenWayneJohnson It's a good thing that enough people aren't willing to take no for an answer and allow the circumstances to determine their self-worth and what they do with their lives.
    Failure happens, and there are rich people who lose it all or come close all the time.
    Being rich doesn't guarantee you'll keep it, especially if you don't know how to create value and you inherited it or if it really was a fluke and wasn't your own personal growth.

  12. ThomasMrak StevenWayneJohnson Jim Rohn (rich enough for ya?) always taught that it's OK TO BE BROKE, but it is being BROKE AND STUPID that will get you into all the trouble.  the PLUCK part is the ATTITUDE - that is the STARTING POINT TO ALL SUCCESS.  Get that part WRONG, and you MAY AS WELL NOT EVEN BOTHER.  I saw a wiki(wiccan)-o-pedia entry the other day about MAGICAL THINKING (I prefer to spell it MAGICKAL - K adds 3 zeroes - MORE LEVERAGE) - and it was discussing how DYSFUNCTIONAL someone is (and thus needs drugs and a shrink) if they BELIEVE that their thoughts ALONE can influence their world WITHOUT ANY BEHAVIOR - this is a MIND CONTROL VIRUS - until and unless you FORCE your subconscious mind to THINK DIFFERENTLY, the behavior will NEVER EVER FOLLOW - action follows thought, and THOUGHTS ARE THINGS!!!! do NOT buy into the MCV that Magickal Thoughts are just another form of PYCHOTIC BEHAVIOR - otherwise, you are just another SLAVE.  On the other hand, CHOOSE TO THINK MAGICKALLY for LONG ENOUGH and WITH A PURE AGENDA (that part is a WHOLE LOT MORE IMPORTANT that most are willing to admit) and the M/V (like Linux shorthand for MOVE YOUR SORRY ASS - aka the Multi-Verse will kick in some INSANE SYNCHRONICITIES and other "MERE COINCIDENCES" and PRESTO!! You are off to the wealth RACES IN NO TIME FLAT.
    When someone offers you "GOOD LUCK" just do the Rich Schefren thing and ADD THE P IN FRONT (P is the Scientific character for MOMENTUM) - and then it becomes Good Pluck or Momentum Luck (the MO being created by YOUR BRAIN) (smiling) sure love that guy, Rich S!! (and umm, another thing NAMES MEAN STUFF!! like Gage (Gauge) and Rich and Schefren (disguised Chevron, or Schefflera - a FLOWERING PLANT - DUH!!)

  13. Unfortunately "earth day" just like many other empty gestures is corporate/political propaganda that does absolutely nothing for the environment. 
    The global warming industry perpetuated the biggest fraud in human history making us believe that CO2 is "pollution". Far from it is is vital for life on earth and the minute traces that we humans add to the minute amount in the atmosphere is welcome news for all the biosphere and the alleged fraction of a degree in temperature is welcome news to humans. Beware of global cooling not warming. 
    So if CO2 is not pollution what happens to the "alternative energy" industry that sells electricity at 4 times the price and sucks in billions in subsidies for a fraudulent cause? Lets them go bust and make company to the solar energy fraud until they can come up with a real alternative that can stand on it's two feet and actually compete with coal or nuclear.
    May be then we can focus on the REAL pollution. Oh yes there is such thing of course. Particulate emissions, spills, industrial waste, toxic gas emanating from our furniture, fabrics and paint, food additives, preservatives, and pesticide residues in our food, car emissions that are NOT CO2 like nitrates, CO and so much more, all forgotten because we have followed the political correctness of the massive fraud of the CO2 being the bad guy.
    If you care for the environment there is a lot you can do but if you think that celebrating earth day and switching off your lights for an hour will actually do something, think again. CO2 is a good gas, critical for life on earth.
    This is the 16th year of no temperature increase. Have a cool day and please, do produce as much CO2 as you can. Everything that is green in colour and alive will love you for it. The green political movement is the most backwards anti prosperous, recalcitrant parasitic mob that has ever walked the planet.

  14. lifetosuccess 
    Well said. The "limit" is in our own mind.
    Ironically the quakes that sell "global warming" have found a way to create prosperity by using a fringe minority who hate prosperity and successful people and who have found a cause to unite against the "bad rich who are killing mother earth". Pure genius. The politicians buy in it because there are votes to be gained and the scientist, sell their souls for the fundings.
    The one left holding the bill are the productive, the prosperous who are actually doing some work and paying taxes.

  15. 1Marc My ONLY response is a single word HOMME and one MC (yer first and yer last char ) Matt Cutts - his animation says it all - CASE RESTED http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfGMYdalClU&feature=share&list=UUpQLC-evmUAon9BBpcW4kYg

  16. StevenWayneJohnson Annieb Thanks.  I think, right?  Anyway, yes I agree with you Global Warming is real.  Actually it is a scientific fact!

  17. StevenWayneJohnson 1Marc 
    Your predictable post is nothing but an appeal to hate the bad rich and humans are a weed that do not belong on earth. How do you reconcile the fact that you are presumably human and that dress with clothes live in a house and drive a car or a pushbike makes no difference and hopefully work for a living? 
    The "save the earth" industry is achieving the exact opposite by mixing 1% truth with 99% lies and being dismissed by most. The interesting part is how those behind this propaganda get rich riding on the back of well meaning individuals who support it.
    Greens want the population culled down to one billion and humans to go back to horse and carts and straw huts and dirt roads yet they do not knock themselves off and go around in jets to preach their hate religion. 
    Environmentalism is the new hate religion to replace other hate religions we already know. It is the destiny of humans to create principles that enslave them.
    Good luck with that.

  18. 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson I wonder where God stands with all this Earth Day stuff, I am thinking that He would think that this whole movement is just another "idol" that He would prefer that no one worship. Am I saying that it is right to savagely run through all of the resources on the planet? NO... But I do know that we have several multiple billion dollar companies (oil companies and health industry) that pay off our politicians to stifle creativity with regards to replacing fossil fuels and actually finding a cure for cancer.
    If those two things were done, you would pharmaceutical companies and the oil companies turned upside down.
    But we have our politicians grandstanding how we should clear cut our forests for paper, and then not 2 months later saying how the iPad is taking jobs away because bookstores are closing.
    Hypocrites at best...

  19. lifetosuccess 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson HE would likely tell HIS "people" to FEAR HIM and let HIS VENGEANCE PREVAIL, and NEVER EVER to do a THING for those silly memes called FEMALES or EARTH or WILDLIFE or VESSELS or other BLASPHEMOUS ENTITIES WITH THE WRONG GENDER or THAT DONT LOOK LIKE HIM thereby revealing the TOTAL CONTROL FREAK THAT HE HAS BEEN SFB (Since Farming Began) (note: think SPIRITUAL, NOT RE-LIG-O-US and you just MIGHT BE OK for a CHANGE (which HE HATES!!) (note the REACTIONARY LIGATURE for US in there...somewhere, if you actually READ (for a few SECONDS of ADULT LIFE)

  20. lifetosuccess 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson As for idols, I have tons of them, including MASSIVE ONES, like YACHTS.  The IPs (independent people / indigenous pariahs / IN MOMENTUM GENDER - F!) call them TOTEMS (marketers call them VBs or VISION BOARDS) and they SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF RELIGIOUS and CORPORATE and GOVERNMENTAL structures, just like the FIFTH ELEMENT (E = 3 = M = W = Y) scares the beetlejuice out of them too (just ask BEETLEJUICE HIMSELF!! he'll tell you) because it MEANS SOMEONE HAS GOT THEIR NUMBER FOR A CHANGE and uh oh - there's NO MORE EDITORIAL CONTROL!!! (courtesy of the Net, WordPress, SMS Texting, ISIS in LEO, etc etc) - BARKING IN  THE CANYON, WAKING UP THE NIGHT - BLACK CROW WITH AN INDIGO GLOW ON  THE HIGHWAY (America, Wheels Are Turning, Circa early 1970s - YOUTUBE IT!!)

  21. 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson Wrong human to call out on this one buddy. I've done what the US euphemistically refers to as TOTAL CARE for a Juvenile Type 1 Diabetic (no pancreas since age 10) who ALSO has no THYROID GLAND (since age 9) who met me over 30 years ago and we've been "together" ever since - in quotes because the STATE OF WASHINGTON KIDNAPPED HER some 10 months ago because someone checked the wrong box at APS (Adult Protective Shysters) and the $1.50 per hour they were paying me for 18 hours per day of care (IF I EVEN GOT 6 HOURS) no time off for good behavior, no FOOD CARD ($1300 per month was too RICH to warrant food - for either of us) and once the money was gone, the THREATENED TO SUE FOR GUARDIANSHIP OVER HER.  Not being in a very good position (zero money, zero income, giving up our house, no stored resources of any note, BOTH FAMILIES worn down by a FIFTY YEAR, 30 MILLION DOLLAR STRUGGLE including SLE (Systemic Lupus - which she has had for 28 years - arrived same time as the T1 - T3 neck injury that took over a year for her to "recover" from - and got precisely ZIPPO from government or legal system (except what disappeared into hip pockets of sickness "industry" and legal "industry"), a lung nightmare where her left lung filled with 3 liters of fluid - 8 weeks of ICU, a CENTRAL LINE, a NASTY DRAIN, surgeries, and 18 months of "MORE TOTAL CARE" (me again) (ZERO FUNDING, as usual), which was followed a few years later by a HYPOXIA EVENT (oxygen debt) rendering her a 1pct short-term memory and 1pct attention span ALZHEIMERS PATIENT at age 40 - 10 months of Nursing Care, and then I got the yummy task of 24-7-365 care (again, ZERO PAY, ZERO FOOD TOO - too many assets) ZERO ANY DAMN THING for 7 years, until what meager reserves were finally exhausted and I had to divorce her and BEG for their $140 per hour "stipend" that took EIGHTEEN MONTHS OF LEGAL WORK to get them to "re-evaluate" - same facts, same questions, same procedure - and after the Admin Law JUDGE YELLED AT THEIR ASSES, the relented, and moved her "awarded" hours up off the tarmac from 14 to 186 - 11 times more - any for the previous 8 years of hell? (or the previous 28 since I met the lady? nope) only back to WHEN THE DIVORCE HAPPENED - uh hug - FAMILY VALUES SOCIETY, MY ASS!! And then, the icing on the cake.  Her MULTI-MILLIONAIRE BROTHER, who PROMISED ME TO MY FACE he would care for her properly after I SIGNED OVER HER POWER OF ATTY, took just 24 hours and DUMPED HER IN A NURSING HOME, some EIGHT HOURS round trip by bus and ferry, so I couldn't "bother" her or whatever.  12 days later, the paramedics arrived to jump-start her off the floor (she hadn't seen a paramedic in EIGHT YEARS under my care, except the one time a FOOL called the goverment because she was aboard my boat and THAT MUST NOT BE RIGHT - A BRAIN-INJURY PATIENT ABOARD A BOAT? AND SHE WAS GONE - 3 months later, she landed in the BIG HOSPITAL to see about exchanging HER LOWER INTESTINES FOR AN OUTDOOR BAG (for life) - you see, the ALLOPATHIC WORLD hasn't a CLUE IN HELL how hard it is for a 50 year Juvenile Diabetic to keep her own immune system going  - that's called WHOLISM, and it's COMPETELY AND TOTALLY FOREIGN TO THE US SICKNESS BUSINESS (because it SURE AIN'T GOOD FOR THE BOTTOM LINE, IS IT?????) - somehow she dodged that BAG EVENT - which would have killed her in a week or two and back she went to the Nursing Home, where she remains, rotting, failing, and miserable without her HUSBAND (divorced, loyal 100pct, still have the ring) her RESCUE DOGGIES - which see has seen ONCE in almost a year) without the benefit of her BEST FRIEND in PORTLAND, who used to visit her 2-3 times per year and hasn't been able to see her in 16 months (she tried on her week off this week - my wife wasn't in good enough shape to see her) - and then the last (almost) straw - someone called in a KIDNAPPING THREAT to the goverment - only they pinned it on the WRONG PERSON - ME! instead of the State of WA (her brother RENTS ANOTHER MILLION DOLLAR HOME TO THE STATE ATTORNEY - of WA STATE, so it's kinda hard to complain to the govt) - the bottom line of the threat?  I can't see her.  nearly 3 months and counting. They say they'll call the cops if I come there.  NO DUE PROCESS, NO ACCOUNTABILITY, NO THINKING AT ALL, NO GRAY MATTER REMAINS IN US CULTURE. NONE. IT'S A GONER.
    The FOURTH ESTATE?  GONE MISSING - I've gone "up the line" on this one - BIG papers, radio, TV, OPRAH, DOC PHIL - as Jethro Tull says in Thick As A Brick - 1972 - "My Word's But A Whisper, Your DEAFNESS A SHOUT" 
    My RESPONSE? postal? addiction? drinking? beachcombing? hand-wringing? BAH - As James Purefoy (sociopath in The Following TV series) once said to HEATH LEDGER - and I quote "And you TILT WHEN YOU SHOULD WITHDRAW AND THAT'S KNIGHTLY TOO!!" 
    So I built a 100 MILLION PER MONTH MARKETING KRAKEN (model - mythical sea monster thingie) that employs WMD tactics (WILDLIFE, MEMETICS, DOPAMINE MKTG)  - FINALLY getting that "so easy a RHESUS MONKEY COULD DO IT" copy-a-bility thingie JUST RIGHT, and laughing all the way to the (CAYMAN ISLANDS) bank (assuming humans actually want to REFRAIN FROM GOING EXTINCT, enjoy a FIFTY WEEK PLAY YEAR, and raise TENS OF BILLIONS FOR THE EARTH'S LIVING SYSTEMS - Oceans, Land Habitat, and the 10 MILLION Minor PRIMATES (not JUST THE HOMO SAPIEN ONES) that are going to EXPIRE THIS YEAR) unless we GET THIS RIGHT...
    POSTURE: and frankly, at this point, while I would LOVE to get my 30-year wife/lover/significant other OUT OF JAIL, and I would LOVE to see the earth's living systems heal, and I would LOVE to run around the planet on yachts and hang out on private islands with MUSIC and FILMMAKING ROYALTY IN TOW, I really don't give a crap whether or not humans actually DO THIS - as Jim Rohn said MANY MANY TIMES - it is NEVER THE GOAL YOU SEEK - it is WHAT YOU BECOME IN THE PURSUIT OF IT THAT MATTERS.  And I LIKE where I've been and what I've become - a PRT - Pattern Recognition Thinker - a BROKE, LONELY, PRT, but a pretty HAPPY ONE, no matter how INSANE THAT MIGHT SOUND TO MOST HUMANS

  22. Hey RG, sorry for WRITING A E-BOOK in here, man!  Thanks for LEAVING IT UP (even for a few hours) - it REALLY HELPED GET THE IDEAS / MEMES OUT, even if they sound pretty nutty... 🙂  CATHARTIC, to say the least!

  23. ThomasMrak StevenWayneJohnson my fav entrepreneur comeback kid story is JC PENNEY, who, flat broke, at age 79 (the WICKED NUMBER AGAIN - 7 of 9 borg / Voyager) STARTED PENNEY'S DEPT STORE - so much for "I'm too old" lameass excuses!! Right?

  24. In a more ideal world. I think we ought to live more spread out rather to be densely crammed into cities. Also, each house could generate its part of its own electricity with some wind power and solar (when that becomes less expensive). If everyone had about 10 acres of their own they could also grow some of their own fruits and vegetables. It would be great if cars were hybridized where it could run about 30 miles on electricity and rest on gas. Much of this involves a different kind of urban planning.

  25. We  ought to be aware as well as to who and what is polluting the earth. If you want it to stop, just stop buying products or services associated with these polluters. We also live in a system motivated by profit only. Not so much what is clean and good for the earth.

  26. Edward D Devero yeah, Edward - THINK about what it must be like to live in a 50-story HIGHRISE, completely removed from the EARTH such that you have to ride in a BOX for an HOUR A DAY with IDIOTS YOU HATE just to get down to CONCRETE, get in a CAR, and drive ANOTHER HOUR, so you can plunk your toes in some soil! sheesh - that has to make people soooo INSANE they need a shrink!

  27. I agree that the free enterprise system fosters innovation and inventions.  It certainly isn't fostered by people who tell you that you need "to get a job".  They are the very ones sitting back and waiting for someone else to create a solution when they themselves are the ones constantly complaining and pointing the finger at someone else.  Rise above the crowd and look beyond I say!

  28. Every time the environment is mentioned in a blog or debate on the internet, the replies are on this line:
    -"It is all the bad rich people's fault" It is "them", "those ones", "the greedy one" ....
    Normal intelligent people seem to flip at the sole mention of the word environment, take their brain out of the skull, run to the refrigerator and leave it there on a plate and start spewing out nonsense. 
    Consider for a minute, that the logic and reason has gone out the window in the western world when it comes to anything "environment". The very concept of protection has been hijacked by the lunatic fringe incited by a few alternative entrepreneurs with an agenda that are driving the lynch mob with the pitchfork and the rope. They have found a cause that takes them to the door or the prosperous and successful and they are knocking the door down to blame all their ancestral frustration on the bad rich this time with an apparent support from a fraudulent cause crafted carefully for ulterior motives. 
    Environmentalism is a religion and it is doing today what the spanish inquisition did a long time ago driven by yet another religion just as absurd and irrational as this one.

  29. 1Marc you don't get to have a green movement WITHOUT a green David Koresh or a green Jim Jones or a green Ted Kaczynski. It doesn't work that way.  If you blame the movement itself on the above 3, well, THAT IS WHY YOUR CORAL, YOUR 1.5 BILLION SHARKS, and YOUR 197,000 BLUE WHALES (OUT OF 200K 100 YEARS AGO) ARE GONE - you are blaming the LUNATIC FRINGE ALL OVER AGAIN (like the inquistion) and NOT LOOKING AT THE REAL CULPRIT - which looks back at you every time you comb your hair.  The people who are the REAL greens don't give a flying fuck about what SHT is going on (STUPID HUMAN TRICKS) - they just GET INTO THE TRENCHES and board SHIPS like the Steve Irwin or the Bob Barker, or a Woods Hole or Scripps Institute vessel (crappy pay, nasty conditions, nearly-as-dangerous as a navy surface ship 6-month "tour-of-duty" that DOES NOT HAVE A DAMN USO SUPPORTING THEIR LOVED ONES OR A STUPID 1/2 MILLION DOLLAR GOVERNMENT MOTORHOME PASSING OUT DIRT-CHEAP SCHOOL LOANS AND IN-GROUP NOTHING-INTEREST VET LOANS OR LONG-TERM MEDICAL OR COUNSELING - these people are the REAL WARRIORS OF PLANET EARTH and THEY GET BLAMED AS THE LUNATIC FRINGE! - uh huh - that makes about as much sense to me as the 7 billion people who all said in unison during 4th grade "I'm NOT very good at this MATH THING - I think I'll learn how to eat CHEETOS IN FRONT OF A TV SET INSTEAD!"

    1. If you hold your hands over your heads with all fingers out-stretched, you will see a very interesting PATTERN - 6 W's - on one hand: World Wide Web and on the other hand, Wildlife, Wicked (Wisdom in disguise) and WEALTH - as Randy opines, without that last one, LIFE ON EARTH GOES EXTINCT - quickly! Lets get BUSY, shall we? (note: WildLife is a DUALITY - defn no. 1: EXTREME EXPERIENCES - MargaritaVille! defn no. 2: PRESERVING Earth's precious living systems) DUH!!

    2. Yes, the power of ideas will help mother earth.  I totally agree on that one.  We need new innovations in transportation and clean water.  As for free enterprise, I am pretty sure that it has a big share of the blame in how our earth became so polluted in the first place.  It wasn't because of inventions, it was because greedy people wanted money instead of the best ideas.  Tesla's electricity would have been far more beneficial to the earth, but we can thank some of the Greediest people of all time for killing that.
      By the way, who prevents us from having transportation that is cleaner?  Because trust me their have been innovations that would have made transportation a lot more clean.

    3. It's interesting you posted this today, as I was sleepless for awhile last night after having screened "Lincoln", Spielberg's Oscar nominated film. It was a harsh reminder of the closed minds and 'structure' that many of these limiting beliefs and memes came from.. And it scared the heck out of me! Fortunately, today the world embraces innovation and vision unlike those days!.. So yes, I agree wholeheartedly Randy..  Let's get a BOOM for Randy!!

    4. Annieb spoken like one of Heart's (rock band) greatest songs of all time (from 40-odd years ago) - Oh, Annie, Dreamboat Annie, little SHIP OF DREAMS! (and it is there, right in your name (as the solution is in their song, and other bands/songs of that era), JUST awaking from a 2x rip-van-winkle-esque slumber) - but the REAL UN-slumber is JUST getting rolling - 10 years since ISIS (Intl Station In Space) ascended to LEO (not the connie, silly - LOW EARTH ORBIT - and she (the ancient Egyptian HIJACKED GODDESS), is NONE TOO THRILLED with the men of the H.S.category of critters - time for VIGO (of Les Miserables and Wagner's Ring Operas and Lord Of The Rings itself) to get the R back - RECRUITING, Recursive (viral) Radical processes - so SUDDENLY, Planet Earth becomes VIRGO again for the first time SFB (Since Farming Began) - a 9,000 year time-out...ENDING as I type this! - How's THAT FOR AN IDEA, RG?? (wicked smile)

    5. What is really sad about all of this is the "limiting" belief that we have a "limited" supply of anything. This "limiting" belief drives prices at our gas pumps and it also causes countless deaths all over the world due to abortion because we do not have "enough" to support the population.
      When I start to see the "Global Warming Guru's" living in the manner they prescribe for everyone else, I will start to take them serious but there is already too much exposed about fixing the numbers to support their theory that I don't know how anyone can take them seriously anymore.

    6. lifetosuccess There is an UNlimited supply in the VERSE, however when you change the lens aka PERSPECTIVE to a SINGLE GLOBE (like Earth), you run SMACK INTO a meme known as SCARCITY.  Anyone NOT understanding / addressing scarcity is simply FI - like Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum aka a FINANCIAL / ECONOMIC ILLITERATE (common among humans who NO LONGER READ ANYTHING) - If you are sitting in downtown Beverly Hills, or Tokyo, or Rio DJ, it might APPEAR that there is an ABUNDANCE of resources - but like those funny MIRRORS on cars, appearances can be deceiving.  It would be WONDERFUL if we could simply toss the equivalent of a COSMIC FISHING LINE out into the Asteroid Belt and REEL IN all that yummy raw material.  Which works well as long as you SUSPEND REALITY or GOBBLE DOWN A TON OF HALLUCINAGENIC SUBSTANCES or some such, but NOT if you get out your microscope, your telescope, and your WHITE BOARD and DO THE EFFING MATH (again, something humans really, really SUCK AT, again, largely because humans ALMOST NEVER EVER READ ANYMORE). (sigh) (I grow weary of pointing this out) - READ, PEOPLE, READ SOMETHING BESIDES THE FUNNIES and SPORTS [email protected]! Please!!
      Oh, and it's CLIMATE CHANGE and it's as REAL as the 1.5 BILLION SHARKS we shredded for SEX SOUP or the INCREDIBLE amount of MERCURY we've dumped into the world's oceans courtesy of our yummy COAL-BURNING HABIT or....well - just go FREAKING READ SOMETHING FOR A CHANGE or TURN ON NAT GEO WILD or ANIMAL PLANET OR DISCOVERY CHANNEL FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS and THEN REPORT REPORT !! sheesh

    7. Speaking of limiting the piece below was published by Bloomberg Business Week.
      I lost all respect I had for them after reading this.
      Yes, being born rich does give you more opportunities and more connections, but believing you can do nothing about your station in life is learned helplessness and I am appalled that they would publish crap like this.
      http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-04-22/how-did-the-worlds-rich-get-that-way-luck#r=rss
      I thought it was a load of hogwash and encourages people to not take responsibility for anything.

    8. ThomasMrak Bloomberg is DEAD ON ACCURATE.  All you have to do to "prove" the theory is look at the Forbes List 30 years ago, then today.  And / or how many on the F-list DOUBLED their net worth in the past, say 20 years (that should be easy to do, right? WRONG!!) unless you were BORN INTO IT, a billion dollars is about as likely for a pauper as a trip TO ANOTHER STAR SYSTEM.  It did NOT say you COULDN'T do it - only that as the number of ZEROES INCREASES, the ODDS go down to NEAR ZERO that you will.  This is NOT THEORY.  It is REALITY.  No different than GRAVITY or that the SUN IS LIKELY TO BE THERE AGAIN TOMORROW - THAT sort of reality. By BUYING INTO THE HYPE of Horatio Alger, the RICH and POWERFUL have everyone PRECISELY where they want - INFECTED BY A MCV - Mind Control Virus - good luck getting rid of those - they are harder to shake than AVIAN FLU VIRUS (chortling)

    9. ThomasMrak As for the GAP in America - between RICH and POOR - the BIGGEST GAP ON EARTH, BTW, just head for TED TALK and pay attention to Wilkinson for a few minutes of your precious time and LEARN SOME ECONOMIC THEORY! Eh? http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_wilkinson.html (note: TED TALK is the hangout of LOTS OF RIGHTY-TIGHTIES) - Risky Is The New Safe, right?? Thanks, RG for the TOWN HALL - when those in power FINALLY LOSE EDITORIAL CONTROL (like in THIS THREAD), then THINGS WILL END BADLY FOR THEM - guaranteed - they do NOT appreciate loss of Editorial CONTROL - never have, never will!!

    10. StevenWayneJohnson ThomasMrak I don't believe in Horatio Alger either.
      He taught people that with a bit of pluck and luck people can be successes.
      I also agree that people being wealthier across the board would be more beneficial.
      However, any attempt to use force to do this does not work and hurts people.
      I would however like opinions from some of the people who are actually wealthy like Randy and some of the people here.

    11. StevenWayneJohnson It's a good thing that enough people aren't willing to take no for an answer and allow the circumstances to determine their self-worth and what they do with their lives.
      Failure happens, and there are rich people who lose it all or come close all the time.
      Being rich doesn't guarantee you'll keep it, especially if you don't know how to create value and you inherited it or if it really was a fluke and wasn't your own personal growth.

    12. ThomasMrak StevenWayneJohnson Jim Rohn (rich enough for ya?) always taught that it's OK TO BE BROKE, but it is being BROKE AND STUPID that will get you into all the trouble.  the PLUCK part is the ATTITUDE - that is the STARTING POINT TO ALL SUCCESS.  Get that part WRONG, and you MAY AS WELL NOT EVEN BOTHER.  I saw a wiki(wiccan)-o-pedia entry the other day about MAGICAL THINKING (I prefer to spell it MAGICKAL - K adds 3 zeroes - MORE LEVERAGE) - and it was discussing how DYSFUNCTIONAL someone is (and thus needs drugs and a shrink) if they BELIEVE that their thoughts ALONE can influence their world WITHOUT ANY BEHAVIOR - this is a MIND CONTROL VIRUS - until and unless you FORCE your subconscious mind to THINK DIFFERENTLY, the behavior will NEVER EVER FOLLOW - action follows thought, and THOUGHTS ARE THINGS!!!! do NOT buy into the MCV that Magickal Thoughts are just another form of PYCHOTIC BEHAVIOR - otherwise, you are just another SLAVE.  On the other hand, CHOOSE TO THINK MAGICKALLY for LONG ENOUGH and WITH A PURE AGENDA (that part is a WHOLE LOT MORE IMPORTANT that most are willing to admit) and the M/V (like Linux shorthand for MOVE YOUR SORRY ASS - aka the Multi-Verse will kick in some INSANE SYNCHRONICITIES and other "MERE COINCIDENCES" and PRESTO!! You are off to the wealth RACES IN NO TIME FLAT.
      When someone offers you "GOOD LUCK" just do the Rich Schefren thing and ADD THE P IN FRONT (P is the Scientific character for MOMENTUM) - and then it becomes Good Pluck or Momentum Luck (the MO being created by YOUR BRAIN) (smiling) sure love that guy, Rich S!! (and umm, another thing NAMES MEAN STUFF!! like Gage (Gauge) and Rich and Schefren (disguised Chevron, or Schefflera - a FLOWERING PLANT - DUH!!)

    13. Unfortunately "earth day" just like many other empty gestures is corporate/political propaganda that does absolutely nothing for the environment. 
      The global warming industry perpetuated the biggest fraud in human history making us believe that CO2 is "pollution". Far from it is is vital for life on earth and the minute traces that we humans add to the minute amount in the atmosphere is welcome news for all the biosphere and the alleged fraction of a degree in temperature is welcome news to humans. Beware of global cooling not warming. 
      So if CO2 is not pollution what happens to the "alternative energy" industry that sells electricity at 4 times the price and sucks in billions in subsidies for a fraudulent cause? Lets them go bust and make company to the solar energy fraud until they can come up with a real alternative that can stand on it's two feet and actually compete with coal or nuclear.
      May be then we can focus on the REAL pollution. Oh yes there is such thing of course. Particulate emissions, spills, industrial waste, toxic gas emanating from our furniture, fabrics and paint, food additives, preservatives, and pesticide residues in our food, car emissions that are NOT CO2 like nitrates, CO and so much more, all forgotten because we have followed the political correctness of the massive fraud of the CO2 being the bad guy.
      If you care for the environment there is a lot you can do but if you think that celebrating earth day and switching off your lights for an hour will actually do something, think again. CO2 is a good gas, critical for life on earth.
      This is the 16th year of no temperature increase. Have a cool day and please, do produce as much CO2 as you can. Everything that is green in colour and alive will love you for it. The green political movement is the most backwards anti prosperous, recalcitrant parasitic mob that has ever walked the planet.

    14. lifetosuccess 
      Well said. The "limit" is in our own mind.
      Ironically the quakes that sell "global warming" have found a way to create prosperity by using a fringe minority who hate prosperity and successful people and who have found a cause to unite against the "bad rich who are killing mother earth". Pure genius. The politicians buy in it because there are votes to be gained and the scientist, sell their souls for the fundings.
      The one left holding the bill are the productive, the prosperous who are actually doing some work and paying taxes.

    15. 1Marc My ONLY response is a single word HOMME and one MC (yer first and yer last char ) Matt Cutts - his animation says it all - CASE RESTED http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfGMYdalClU&feature=share&list=UUpQLC-evmUAon9BBpcW4kYg

    16. StevenWayneJohnson Annieb Thanks.  I think, right?  Anyway, yes I agree with you Global Warming is real.  Actually it is a scientific fact!

    17. StevenWayneJohnson 1Marc 
      Your predictable post is nothing but an appeal to hate the bad rich and humans are a weed that do not belong on earth. How do you reconcile the fact that you are presumably human and that dress with clothes live in a house and drive a car or a pushbike makes no difference and hopefully work for a living? 
      The "save the earth" industry is achieving the exact opposite by mixing 1% truth with 99% lies and being dismissed by most. The interesting part is how those behind this propaganda get rich riding on the back of well meaning individuals who support it.
      Greens want the population culled down to one billion and humans to go back to horse and carts and straw huts and dirt roads yet they do not knock themselves off and go around in jets to preach their hate religion. 
      Environmentalism is the new hate religion to replace other hate religions we already know. It is the destiny of humans to create principles that enslave them.
      Good luck with that.

    18. 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson I wonder where God stands with all this Earth Day stuff, I am thinking that He would think that this whole movement is just another "idol" that He would prefer that no one worship. Am I saying that it is right to savagely run through all of the resources on the planet? NO... But I do know that we have several multiple billion dollar companies (oil companies and health industry) that pay off our politicians to stifle creativity with regards to replacing fossil fuels and actually finding a cure for cancer.
      If those two things were done, you would pharmaceutical companies and the oil companies turned upside down.
      But we have our politicians grandstanding how we should clear cut our forests for paper, and then not 2 months later saying how the iPad is taking jobs away because bookstores are closing.
      Hypocrites at best...

    19. lifetosuccess 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson HE would likely tell HIS "people" to FEAR HIM and let HIS VENGEANCE PREVAIL, and NEVER EVER to do a THING for those silly memes called FEMALES or EARTH or WILDLIFE or VESSELS or other BLASPHEMOUS ENTITIES WITH THE WRONG GENDER or THAT DONT LOOK LIKE HIM thereby revealing the TOTAL CONTROL FREAK THAT HE HAS BEEN SFB (Since Farming Began) (note: think SPIRITUAL, NOT RE-LIG-O-US and you just MIGHT BE OK for a CHANGE (which HE HATES!!) (note the REACTIONARY LIGATURE for US in there...somewhere, if you actually READ (for a few SECONDS of ADULT LIFE)

    20. lifetosuccess 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson As for idols, I have tons of them, including MASSIVE ONES, like YACHTS.  The IPs (independent people / indigenous pariahs / IN MOMENTUM GENDER - F!) call them TOTEMS (marketers call them VBs or VISION BOARDS) and they SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF RELIGIOUS and CORPORATE and GOVERNMENTAL structures, just like the FIFTH ELEMENT (E = 3 = M = W = Y) scares the beetlejuice out of them too (just ask BEETLEJUICE HIMSELF!! he'll tell you) because it MEANS SOMEONE HAS GOT THEIR NUMBER FOR A CHANGE and uh oh - there's NO MORE EDITORIAL CONTROL!!! (courtesy of the Net, WordPress, SMS Texting, ISIS in LEO, etc etc) - BARKING IN  THE CANYON, WAKING UP THE NIGHT - BLACK CROW WITH AN INDIGO GLOW ON  THE HIGHWAY (America, Wheels Are Turning, Circa early 1970s - YOUTUBE IT!!)

    21. 1Marc StevenWayneJohnson Wrong human to call out on this one buddy. I've done what the US euphemistically refers to as TOTAL CARE for a Juvenile Type 1 Diabetic (no pancreas since age 10) who ALSO has no THYROID GLAND (since age 9) who met me over 30 years ago and we've been "together" ever since - in quotes because the STATE OF WASHINGTON KIDNAPPED HER some 10 months ago because someone checked the wrong box at APS (Adult Protective Shysters) and the $1.50 per hour they were paying me for 18 hours per day of care (IF I EVEN GOT 6 HOURS) no time off for good behavior, no FOOD CARD ($1300 per month was too RICH to warrant food - for either of us) and once the money was gone, the THREATENED TO SUE FOR GUARDIANSHIP OVER HER.  Not being in a very good position (zero money, zero income, giving up our house, no stored resources of any note, BOTH FAMILIES worn down by a FIFTY YEAR, 30 MILLION DOLLAR STRUGGLE including SLE (Systemic Lupus - which she has had for 28 years - arrived same time as the T1 - T3 neck injury that took over a year for her to "recover" from - and got precisely ZIPPO from government or legal system (except what disappeared into hip pockets of sickness "industry" and legal "industry"), a lung nightmare where her left lung filled with 3 liters of fluid - 8 weeks of ICU, a CENTRAL LINE, a NASTY DRAIN, surgeries, and 18 months of "MORE TOTAL CARE" (me again) (ZERO FUNDING, as usual), which was followed a few years later by a HYPOXIA EVENT (oxygen debt) rendering her a 1pct short-term memory and 1pct attention span ALZHEIMERS PATIENT at age 40 - 10 months of Nursing Care, and then I got the yummy task of 24-7-365 care (again, ZERO PAY, ZERO FOOD TOO - too many assets) ZERO ANY DAMN THING for 7 years, until what meager reserves were finally exhausted and I had to divorce her and BEG for their $140 per hour "stipend" that took EIGHTEEN MONTHS OF LEGAL WORK to get them to "re-evaluate" - same facts, same questions, same procedure - and after the Admin Law JUDGE YELLED AT THEIR ASSES, the relented, and moved her "awarded" hours up off the tarmac from 14 to 186 - 11 times more - any for the previous 8 years of hell? (or the previous 28 since I met the lady? nope) only back to WHEN THE DIVORCE HAPPENED - uh hug - FAMILY VALUES SOCIETY, MY ASS!! And then, the icing on the cake.  Her MULTI-MILLIONAIRE BROTHER, who PROMISED ME TO MY FACE he would care for her properly after I SIGNED OVER HER POWER OF ATTY, took just 24 hours and DUMPED HER IN A NURSING HOME, some EIGHT HOURS round trip by bus and ferry, so I couldn't "bother" her or whatever.  12 days later, the paramedics arrived to jump-start her off the floor (she hadn't seen a paramedic in EIGHT YEARS under my care, except the one time a FOOL called the goverment because she was aboard my boat and THAT MUST NOT BE RIGHT - A BRAIN-INJURY PATIENT ABOARD A BOAT? AND SHE WAS GONE - 3 months later, she landed in the BIG HOSPITAL to see about exchanging HER LOWER INTESTINES FOR AN OUTDOOR BAG (for life) - you see, the ALLOPATHIC WORLD hasn't a CLUE IN HELL how hard it is for a 50 year Juvenile Diabetic to keep her own immune system going  - that's called WHOLISM, and it's COMPETELY AND TOTALLY FOREIGN TO THE US SICKNESS BUSINESS (because it SURE AIN'T GOOD FOR THE BOTTOM LINE, IS IT?????) - somehow she dodged that BAG EVENT - which would have killed her in a week or two and back she went to the Nursing Home, where she remains, rotting, failing, and miserable without her HUSBAND (divorced, loyal 100pct, still have the ring) her RESCUE DOGGIES - which see has seen ONCE in almost a year) without the benefit of her BEST FRIEND in PORTLAND, who used to visit her 2-3 times per year and hasn't been able to see her in 16 months (she tried on her week off this week - my wife wasn't in good enough shape to see her) - and then the last (almost) straw - someone called in a KIDNAPPING THREAT to the goverment - only they pinned it on the WRONG PERSON - ME! instead of the State of WA (her brother RENTS ANOTHER MILLION DOLLAR HOME TO THE STATE ATTORNEY - of WA STATE, so it's kinda hard to complain to the govt) - the bottom line of the threat?  I can't see her.  nearly 3 months and counting. They say they'll call the cops if I come there.  NO DUE PROCESS, NO ACCOUNTABILITY, NO THINKING AT ALL, NO GRAY MATTER REMAINS IN US CULTURE. NONE. IT'S A GONER.
      The FOURTH ESTATE?  GONE MISSING - I've gone "up the line" on this one - BIG papers, radio, TV, OPRAH, DOC PHIL - as Jethro Tull says in Thick As A Brick - 1972 - "My Word's But A Whisper, Your DEAFNESS A SHOUT" 
      My RESPONSE? postal? addiction? drinking? beachcombing? hand-wringing? BAH - As James Purefoy (sociopath in The Following TV series) once said to HEATH LEDGER - and I quote "And you TILT WHEN YOU SHOULD WITHDRAW AND THAT'S KNIGHTLY TOO!!" 
      So I built a 100 MILLION PER MONTH MARKETING KRAKEN (model - mythical sea monster thingie) that employs WMD tactics (WILDLIFE, MEMETICS, DOPAMINE MKTG)  - FINALLY getting that "so easy a RHESUS MONKEY COULD DO IT" copy-a-bility thingie JUST RIGHT, and laughing all the way to the (CAYMAN ISLANDS) bank (assuming humans actually want to REFRAIN FROM GOING EXTINCT, enjoy a FIFTY WEEK PLAY YEAR, and raise TENS OF BILLIONS FOR THE EARTH'S LIVING SYSTEMS - Oceans, Land Habitat, and the 10 MILLION Minor PRIMATES (not JUST THE HOMO SAPIEN ONES) that are going to EXPIRE THIS YEAR) unless we GET THIS RIGHT...
      POSTURE: and frankly, at this point, while I would LOVE to get my 30-year wife/lover/significant other OUT OF JAIL, and I would LOVE to see the earth's living systems heal, and I would LOVE to run around the planet on yachts and hang out on private islands with MUSIC and FILMMAKING ROYALTY IN TOW, I really don't give a crap whether or not humans actually DO THIS - as Jim Rohn said MANY MANY TIMES - it is NEVER THE GOAL YOU SEEK - it is WHAT YOU BECOME IN THE PURSUIT OF IT THAT MATTERS.  And I LIKE where I've been and what I've become - a PRT - Pattern Recognition Thinker - a BROKE, LONELY, PRT, but a pretty HAPPY ONE, no matter how INSANE THAT MIGHT SOUND TO MOST HUMANS

    22. Hey RG, sorry for WRITING A E-BOOK in here, man!  Thanks for LEAVING IT UP (even for a few hours) - it REALLY HELPED GET THE IDEAS / MEMES OUT, even if they sound pretty nutty... 🙂  CATHARTIC, to say the least!

    23. ThomasMrak StevenWayneJohnson my fav entrepreneur comeback kid story is JC PENNEY, who, flat broke, at age 79 (the WICKED NUMBER AGAIN - 7 of 9 borg / Voyager) STARTED PENNEY'S DEPT STORE - so much for "I'm too old" lameass excuses!! Right?

    24. In a more ideal world. I think we ought to live more spread out rather to be densely crammed into cities. Also, each house could generate its part of its own electricity with some wind power and solar (when that becomes less expensive). If everyone had about 10 acres of their own they could also grow some of their own fruits and vegetables. It would be great if cars were hybridized where it could run about 30 miles on electricity and rest on gas. Much of this involves a different kind of urban planning.

    25. We  ought to be aware as well as to who and what is polluting the earth. If you want it to stop, just stop buying products or services associated with these polluters. We also live in a system motivated by profit only. Not so much what is clean and good for the earth.

    26. Edward D Devero yeah, Edward - THINK about what it must be like to live in a 50-story HIGHRISE, completely removed from the EARTH such that you have to ride in a BOX for an HOUR A DAY with IDIOTS YOU HATE just to get down to CONCRETE, get in a CAR, and drive ANOTHER HOUR, so you can plunk your toes in some soil! sheesh - that has to make people soooo INSANE they need a shrink!

    27. I agree that the free enterprise system fosters innovation and inventions.  It certainly isn't fostered by people who tell you that you need "to get a job".  They are the very ones sitting back and waiting for someone else to create a solution when they themselves are the ones constantly complaining and pointing the finger at someone else.  Rise above the crowd and look beyond I say!

    28. Every time the environment is mentioned in a blog or debate on the internet, the replies are on this line:
      -"It is all the bad rich people's fault" It is "them", "those ones", "the greedy one" ....
      Normal intelligent people seem to flip at the sole mention of the word environment, take their brain out of the skull, run to the refrigerator and leave it there on a plate and start spewing out nonsense. 
      Consider for a minute, that the logic and reason has gone out the window in the western world when it comes to anything "environment". The very concept of protection has been hijacked by the lunatic fringe incited by a few alternative entrepreneurs with an agenda that are driving the lynch mob with the pitchfork and the rope. They have found a cause that takes them to the door or the prosperous and successful and they are knocking the door down to blame all their ancestral frustration on the bad rich this time with an apparent support from a fraudulent cause crafted carefully for ulterior motives. 
      Environmentalism is a religion and it is doing today what the spanish inquisition did a long time ago driven by yet another religion just as absurd and irrational as this one.

    29. 1Marc you don't get to have a green movement WITHOUT a green David Koresh or a green Jim Jones or a green Ted Kaczynski. It doesn't work that way.  If you blame the movement itself on the above 3, well, THAT IS WHY YOUR CORAL, YOUR 1.5 BILLION SHARKS, and YOUR 197,000 BLUE WHALES (OUT OF 200K 100 YEARS AGO) ARE GONE - you are blaming the LUNATIC FRINGE ALL OVER AGAIN (like the inquistion) and NOT LOOKING AT THE REAL CULPRIT - which looks back at you every time you comb your hair.  The people who are the REAL greens don't give a flying fuck about what SHT is going on (STUPID HUMAN TRICKS) - they just GET INTO THE TRENCHES and board SHIPS like the Steve Irwin or the Bob Barker, or a Woods Hole or Scripps Institute vessel (crappy pay, nasty conditions, nearly-as-dangerous as a navy surface ship 6-month "tour-of-duty" that DOES NOT HAVE A DAMN USO SUPPORTING THEIR LOVED ONES OR A STUPID 1/2 MILLION DOLLAR GOVERNMENT MOTORHOME PASSING OUT DIRT-CHEAP SCHOOL LOANS AND IN-GROUP NOTHING-INTEREST VET LOANS OR LONG-TERM MEDICAL OR COUNSELING - these people are the REAL WARRIORS OF PLANET EARTH and THEY GET BLAMED AS THE LUNATIC FRINGE! - uh huh - that makes about as much sense to me as the 7 billion people who all said in unison during 4th grade "I'm NOT very good at this MATH THING - I think I'll learn how to eat CHEETOS IN FRONT OF A TV SET INSTEAD!"
