We are obviously talking in-terms of technology?
What we create is not significant.
Nor is it relevant in terms of the video you presented.
Why not watch Carl Cox for that matter.
An incredible spectacle I assure you.
Cool

Hello,

I remember that Fintan and I spoke briefly about 911. I'm not sure if
I understood him exactly correctly or not, but what I was trying to
say is that 911 was exactly what it seemed to be. It was not done by
the CIA; it was not something thought up by the Bushies and Cheney;
and to spend a lot of time ragging that out is time wasted on what to
do about the government.

Although I cannot believe that Bush and Company did it, they couldn't
have welcomed it any more heartily if they had. They jumped on every
opportunity that seemed to open up in the direction of turning the
United States into an authoritarian country. They used and continue
to use it to this day as a way to put fear into the people and damage
the Constitution.

Does this answer what you were talking about?

Best,
Stephen

Sure, makes perfect sense. Yet another unlucky day for the massively incompetant military, the bumbling FAA, stupid NORAD and the moronic intel agencies - coupled with a yet another wonderfully lucky day for the patient war mongers, the prescient Right-wing think-tanks, the fortunate defense contractors and the windfall-blessed banking industry.

Nothing new, nothing to worry about, nothing fixable in any way, nothing deliberately evil. Just what it seemed to be. Cool

Urban Dictionary
Hippy is often used as a derogatory form of the term "Flower Child". The term flower child comes from the use of "flower power", which is anti-violent protest, especially the act of putting a flower in a gun as a protest against the war.

The original flower child movement was made of people who promoted love over hate, wanted to end the war, were very intelligent and politically active, were unsatisfied with today's culture and wished to expand their minds and those of the people around them. They tended to be very liberal democrats, or more commonly, socialists. They were very concerned with the world around them, not just war, but poverty, women's rights, civil rights, youth's rights, and the preservation of the environment.

The term hippy more commonly refers to drugged out dirty teenagers, or later joiners of the movement who just wanted to be cool and did not really care about all the issues. Most 'hippies' will not be offended by the term, because in its originality, it was interchangeable with the term 'flower child'.

There tends to be a very misunderstood association of hippies with drugs. In the original movement, many of the young people were very dissatisfied with their morals and religions being taught at home, and were searching for something new. They turned to nature and ancient natural spiritual beliefs, eastern religions (especially Buddhism), and of course, mind expanding drugs such as Marijuana, LSD, and Mushrooms. It is important to remember that drugs such as LSD were not made illegal until 1965, well after the beatnik and folkie beginning of the flower child movement, and that these drugs were often used in spiritual practices as ways to make it easier to open up the mind and journey within oneself. Did all hippies do drugs? Pretty much. Did a whole lot of them stop: Yes, although marijuana use is still common among modern hippies, the majority have learned from those before them, and stopped the use of these 'heaver' drugs. And dont make the mistake of inferring that all hippies these days smoke, pot is at least 5 times more potent and often laced with more dangerous drugs, so huge amounts have chosen to stop, or never began.

Another common mistuned standing is the idea that all hippies are 'dirty' and 'smell'. We must remember, most hippies were baby boomers from suburbia in their earlier lives, so yes, they showered. This idea comes from the fact that most hippies believed that all people should be equal, and there for many did not own many outfits and would let them get torn, stained, and patched before buying new ones. Also, music was a way of sending a political and spiritual message to the world, and therefore hippies flocked to concerts. Huge outdoor concerts were common, and there weren't the most appropriate showering facilities at these places. I'm sure there were also some who saw showering more than once a week as a waste of precious of time. Keep in mind, that this is still the amount of times between bathing in many modern European countries.

There are countless famous flower children, but the most famous would have to be John Lennon, and Donovan. John Lennon of course was a member of the Beatles, and ran mass protests throughout the 70's, along with making some of the most famous protest music such as "All We Are Saying is Give Peace a Chance" and "Power to the People". The Term "Flower Power" was first used in an article about Donovan, his roots as a beatnik show the beginning of the movement, and he was a bit of a spiritual leader for the masses.

"Apathy isn't it, and we can do something. Ok, so flower power didn't work, so what? We start again." -John Lennon

Welcome to StephenGaskin.com.

Glad to have you aboard.

The democrats think there's a class war. They think class war has taken away the benefits from the old people and taken away the educational opportunities for the youth and taken away the benefits for the veterans and taken away the benefits for the veterans' wives and that we live in a time when the families of soldiers in combat are living on welfare.

And the republicans think class warfare is when the democrats mention any of that.

If a person in a murder trial could be shown to have as direct a link chain of command to a killing as Rumsfeld has to Iraq, they could be tried, found guilty, and -- in some places -- put to the death penalty for their complicity.

What are we to say when a country that calls itself the only superpower in the world changes hands in a coup d'tat as it did in 2000 and nothing is ever said and it gets swept under the rug by the next election?

The Doctrine of Corporate Personhood is in truth and technically an idolatry. (City Trader ought to appreciate that comment.)

I dont believe in capital punishment for humans, but I believe in it for corporations. The whole tort reform trip is to try to keep it so corporations cannot be sued out of business, and I thought a corporation that did bad stuff should be sued out of business. I thought the way capitalism works was, if youre out in the jungle and a lion bites off your leg, then youre a one-legged capitalist and thats just the damn way it goes.
