“Me too. I make my green smoothies a meal whether it's breakfast or lunch and sometimes for dinner as I put everything in them like a couple of spices, nutritional yeast and hemp meal along with fruits and veggies. I just think of all the nutrition as I sip.”

“Thats awesome..... I feel so much better about myself...”
“And now we do as well don't we. I'm afraid the government would find my emails rather boring. Heck, they aren't even humorous though they might wonder at one I received yesterday which was a doozy though it was just "stupidness" which would have been funny if it weren't pathetic.”
“Ole cheney had a lapse of memory on Sunday didn't he or did he lose the memory of Valerie Plame during his heart replacement surgery? He could have cost her her life and certainly it cost her her job.”
“Sorry HP but nothing missy palin could do or say would surpise, make me raise eyebrows, roll eyes, be shocking or in any other way cause me to do other than wonder why she gets all the attention she does. She has filthy, harsh and very unladylike mouth, she use a palette knife to load on the makeup and she always looks like she desperately needs a shower. I do wish, fervently that she would just go away. And that's away anywhere, walk water, invade Russia with her crazy immoral tacky family or get lost in the desert. I don't care and the sooner she closes her mouth and retreats the better in my opinion. I shall never forgive McCain for unleashing this tyrant on the American public. Couldn't she run for dogcatcher in Mississippi?”
“Congress has no reason to be unhappy. Their paycheck, health care and pensions are sacredly covered and with less to do in congress they have more time drinking sessions with their buddies for golf, drinking sessions with their buddies, time with their mistresses and drinking sessions with their buddies or alone with the tv and watch reruns of themselves.
Cynical YES! However this country has MADE ME DO IT!”
“Me too. One hundred million dollars wasted on this trip is absurd. Good thing this is his last term is all I can say and I voted for him twice. Guess he's going to have fun just traveling around for the rest of his time being president. Talk about a lame duck. It's absurd I repeat.”

“The only thing absurd is the supposed cost of this trip. Where is the source of this? Oh, that's right, it's made up. I'm sure it also includes the aircraft carrier with all it's staff that is being paid for no matter if the president sleeps in that day or takes a trip. Thanks for supporting the reduction of the military budget!”

“I voted for him twice--the first because I believed in him, the last was just to vote against Romney. Sadly, he reminds me a little more of Bush with each passing day.”
“Condone what VT? Where are you getting your information because this is the first I've heard of such goings on and I know many Buddhists teachers and students and centers and I consider your charges very serious. Buddhists take precepts and when they violate any one of them they are no longer Buddhists. The precept that is violated the most has to do with sexual activity.”

“Go back to the post I was commenting on -- it's attempted analogy falls flat. As for how good Buddhists are at living up to their own precepts -- I have no idea and hold no opinion on it.”
“Would you please let us know where you are getting this info. I think you're prefabricating here but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt PROVIDING you come up with resources. I'm pretty much up on Buddhist centers and teachers and this is the first I've heard of the criminal activity. All I've heard about and know of is sexual activity.”

“My opinion comes from 23 years of having lived in Asia. I have gone on retreat in Buddhist centers in Japan, China, Thailand, India, and Nepal. As is true in any religion, there is a sharp contrast between the beauty of the religion within the walls of the sanctuary and the harsh reality of the real world outside those walls: a disturbing disconnect.
Resources? What I have observed first-hand in the streets of Bangkok and Kathmandu. The stories of anger and frustration my Asian and Western friends have told anybody who would listen. History, especially that of the Vietnam War which created the sex industry in Bangkok. Consider also that the bi-racial children of American GIs and Vietnamese women had to come to America in the late 70's early 80's because they were outcasts in their own culture.
Listen to how atheists rail against the Abrahamic religions: the opiate of the people, keeping the believers in a sheep-like state to dispossess them of resources and political power.
Well, Buddhism should not be free of critical examination. I prefer Buddhist thought and practice: there is not an evangelical wing, thank god. There are no missionaries. There are no terrorists. But nor is there much in the way of a "Liberation Theology" which would be able to address some of the enormous social and political ills of a region that has suffered so much for so long.”
