Palestinian PM: Plan to declare statehood by 2011 remains on track

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said Saturday that his plan to establish a Palestinian state by August 2011 remains on course.

In an interview with Channel 2, Fayyad denied that the Palestinians aim to seek unilateral recognition or any other alternative to a two-state solution.

Fayyad is credited with an economic upturn in the West Bank and improving law and order after a decade of violence. He has earned praise for taking steps to build a Palestinian state from the ground up and by renouncing violence against Israel.

In a rare address to the Israeli public, he urged people not to give up hope for peace.

He said in the interview broadcast Saturday that “we should not be discouraged because we have failed so many times before.” [read more]

Religion’s that teach people they will be forgiven for their sins should be banished!

Why does society automatically blame alleged ‘reclusive’ and quiet, and/or people with psychological trauma for these kinds of crimes?  When you automatically blame it on those issues, society turns it’s head on the real problem.

He’s obviously had an issue with sex, so why do American’s have an issues with sex? [Sex is great and everyone should enjoy it, no matter what!  He could have gone to a sex worker for his needs, if he didn’t have a relationship to share it with]

He had a problem with young “white” democrats supporting Obama because he was “black,” so why did he have that problem? [BTW, Obama is multi-ethnic, he has a Caucasian mother and African father.  But why was he having a problem with Obama being President?]

Why did he assume that his killing would be forgive by his “god,” and who’s telling him these kinds of lies?

[Our deeds are never forgive,  we all need to take responsibility for our actions because what you do to harm other people whether killing, discrimination, hate-mongering and targeting groups of other people just because you don’t like what they do will all come back to you as a result of your bad actions toward others, this is called Karma.  People will suffer the consequences of their deeds that harm others either now or later, it will all come back to you.  People are NOT forgiven!  Killing is wrong, no matter what! I don’t care what Christianity will say! Killing is wrong under any circumstances! No justification for it!]

To many religious groups are telling people that sex is bad, and that they shouldn’t have sex until they are married, this is not true.  To many religious groups are telling people that their sins will be forgive, and that is not true.  To many fanatical religious republican’s are continuously badgering Obama because they don’t’ want a Black man being the President of their white America, and the news media continuously and repetitively preaches this kind of crap.  His preacher, though his preacher denies preaching this, told him that even a mass murder would be forgiven of their sins!!  WTF is that all about?

Religion?  Christianity teaches followers that sex is wrong, it teaches that the races should be separated, and it teaches people that god will forgive them of their sins!! BULL!

Why did he have so many guns?  Having so many guns should have sent a message because a killers tool of the trade is a weapon, and weapons are used to kill.  Religion and guns, do not mix well!

Gunman at Pa. Health Club Was Bitter Over Women

George Sodini seethed with anger and frustration toward women. He couldn’t understand why they ignored him, despite his best efforts to look nice. He hadn’t had a girlfriend since 1984, hadn’t slept with a woman in 19 years. ”Women just don’t like me. There are 30 million desirable women in the US (my estimate) and I cannot find one. Not one of them finds me attractive,” the 48-year-old computer programmer lamented in a chilling diary he posted on the Internet.

For months, he also wrote vaguely about using guns to carry out his ”exit plan” at his health club, where lots of young women worked out.

On Tuesday, Sodini put his plan into action.

He went to the sprawling L.A. Fitness Club in this Pittsburgh suburb, turned out the lights on a dance-aerobics class filled with women, and opened fire with three guns, letting loose with a fusillade of at least 36 bullets.

He killed three women and wounded nine others before committing suicide.

”He just had a lot of hatred in him and (was) hell-bent on committing this act, and no one was going to stop him,” Allegheny County Police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said Wednesday.

Sodini’s Christian teaching taught him that he’d be forgive of his sin’s!!  Christian’s shouldn’t be telling people that crap!  They need to teach them that people are responsible for their own sins [hate, killings, negative thoughts, hate-mongering or doing any kind of harm to anyone else, either targeted discrimination or physical harm], and they will suffer the consequences of those actions either now or in another life time.  If they don’t teach people that belittling or targeting other groups of people is wrong then this stuff will always be around, and the news media is also to blame for it’s repetitive practices that target groups of people!  It’s called hate, and they will suffer those karmic consequences now or later, in another life.

“Failures in Love”
Although Sodini called religion a “waste,” he wrote that the Rev. Rick Knapp, his former pastor at the nondenominational Tetelestai Church in Plum, “teaches (and convinced me) you can commit mass murder then still go to heaven.”

Progressive thinking has been around for a long time. Open your mind.

Eastern thought or medicine is not a “new age” thing. 

It’s an ancient belief and practice.  Not sure who started saying that eastern medicine is a new age thing or that Buddhism is a “new age” spiritual practice, both of which are much older than western medicine or religions that are not ancient.

……  The idea of structural theory is similar to the Buddhist notion of all events and objects beings linked to each other,” he said.

Giving an interesting twist to conventional religious doctrine, Geshe Nyma said that “contradictions in scientific theory, much like debate in philosophy is always welcome in the scheme of Buddhism, since it encourages thought and therefore progress.”

Though Quantum Physics might apparently have little to do with Buddhist philosophy, the monk explained by saying that “the idea that things like time and space as not fixed, absolute has moved it to the realm of philosophical thinking.” Moving on to molecular physics, Geshe Nyma noted that “some Daribazaron of the earliest Buddhist scriptures had theorised on the atomic structure of matter, which had then branched off into the idea of existence and nothingness at later times.”

Delving into psychology, the Buddhist scholar observed that “while modern psychology and neuro-science has established the fact that the human mind works at multiple levels – the conscious, the subconscious and the unconscious, the idea toes the line with the Buddhist notion of chitta and siddha, that of the conscious mind and the ‘settled’ mind that may be roused through meditative practices.”

Science Connects to Buddha Nature and Inner Consciousness

Everyone should learn the basic concepts of science and evolve with it. I’ve always loved science because it’s connected to everything around us, the trees, the birds, the insects to the foods we eat!  The world is an amazing place! Having a degree in science, and coming from a family of Buddhists for many generations, I can understand the Dalai Lama’s interest and excitement in science, I’m still evolving.   I agree, totally love Dhondup’s question, because my knowledge and understanding of science has helped me to understand Buddhism better, though I still have a lot more to learn about Buddhist teachings into consciousness, my inner being.

Wouldn’t mind taking the course myself, so I hope the scientists eventually bring the Buddhist science teaching model home to America, so we can educate ourselves here to.

Teaching the Dalai Lama’s Monks: Better Religion Through Science

Do bacteria require light?” Tashi, one of my best students, wants to know. He sits there in Dharamsala, India, like his Buddhist monk colleagues, cross-legged on the floor in maroon robes, six hours a day learning science from a tall white Jewish guy from North Carolina.

Religion often has a hard time of it, especially among academics, and especially among scientists. Of course academics have no problem studying religion and raising big money to establish endowed chairs, centers, and institutes devoted to just that. But when actually being religious or even discussing personal beliefs or spirituality at all, is rare and, if anything, discouraged. To me this is an odd and disturbing social conundrum: let’s take our best thinkers and idea-people, theorizers, and policy developers and eradicate any discussion of personal belief, religion, or spirituality from their official discourse. Brilliant.

So, it’s refreshing to be part of a project, an experiment really, in which academics are actively engaging religious tradition and belief. Even better, and ironically, this engagement is driven by scientists; the very folks many blame for hammering personal belief out of intellectual conversation in the West in the first place.

Pastor Concerned that Buddhism Coming to HIS City!

Wow!  Doesn’t America have “religious freedom” or does that only stand if your a Christian? 

One pastor even comes up with a question of “where is the money coming from, is it being funneled out of the US?”  WTF!!!

Christian’s send money out of state all the time!

It’s a blatant attack on religious freedom, and I can ask the same thing of that pastor!  What is that pastor doing with the money he’s getting from his followers?  Is he spending it on church issues or is he buying several homes and cars for him and his family, all while the church might be in dire need?  I’ve seen that happen before.

Buddhist monks are not allowed to handle money, the laypeople handle the business aspect.  The temples are the non profits, and everything else is a business, if they have a book store they charge tax on sales, etc.  It’s like any other church or temple suppose to be.

Just because they might be tax exempt doesn’t mean they won’t spend money in the community. Just by purchasing the materials alone would help the community, what about that Pastor, is his church benefiting the community since it has “tax exempt” status for it’s house, and do they pay tax on their other church busineses?

These kinds of people allege they have nothing against Buddhism, but what they are doing is a blatant attack on Buddhism, and the excuses don’t help cover that up because I’ve heard to many people say things that misrepresent the true teachings of Buddhism, to many times. 

Buddhists in the community and surrounding areas have a right to their temple and it’s teachings!

Pataskala Residents question plans for Buddhist temple

Some area residents and religious leaders are worried about a proposed Buddhist development setting up shop along Blacks Road on the city’s eastern edge.
Residents and pastors recently approached the Pataskala City Council to express their concerns.

“I question where the funding comes from, and what their real intentions are and the impact on the community long-term,” said Gale Road resident Glenn Graham, a pastor at a Kirkersville-area church.

Valley Road resident Andrea Adkins questioned the proposed development’s financial impact on the city, considering one element would possess tax-exempt status.

“There’s not tax money coming in,” Adkins said. “That’s not going to benefit the city at all.”

Pastor Gary Nelson, of One Purpose Community Church, added he has nothing against Buddhists, although they possess differing views. However, Nelson questioned how the development would incorporate a temple with a restaurant, market and spa.

“I see a businesses set up on a nonprofit status,” he said. “I don’t know really how that’s going to benefit the community that much if they use the religious status that me, as a pastor, I understand, but to come in and try to funnel money maybe out of this country, I have no idea. Those are questions I would like to have answered through this process.”

“Some people think of (Buddhism) as a new age religion, but it is a faith that has been around 2,500 years,” Wesley said.

Buddhism appeals to Wesley because the meditative aspects clear her mind. However, she cautioned Buddhism is not solely focused on looking inward.

“One of the decisions Buddhism teaches is love and compassion for everyone,” she said.

Christian Crusaders Advocate for Pro-Killing; Again!

This isn’t the only issue here.  These people use the bible as their rule book, and the bible advocates of killing of all sorts of people.  The people attacking other groups of people, diversity, gay people and other races because of race mixing, and so much more.  Just open up their bible and you will see who it advocates for killing through their delusional interpretation and neo-translations of these new aged bibles [not the same when I was growing up].  All I have to say is beware of False Prophets!

I didn’t see Newt Gingrich’s name on this list, also we can’t forget about those other crusader’s who have already terrorized other people, like Jim Jones, Timothy McVeigh, Branch Davidian and more.   I can’t see how America easily forgets about these terrorists, and shifts attention to Iraq, Afghanistan or the Islamic faith, when we have these Christian’s doing all this here.    All I have to say is who’s going to be next, again.

Very scary people!

Don’t we have a rule of law in America, so why do these people think they can go around terrorizing people.  This just urks me,  here we have American soldiers dying [more than 4300] in Iraq and Afghanistan over alleged terrorism, over their own army of god belief system, yet we have these Christians doing the same thing in our own back yard.

Perhaps we should bring our soldiers home!

You know, I don’t believe nor practice abortion, but that doesn’t give me a right to take the law into my own hands or judge other people.  Judgement according  the bible is left for your god on judgment day.   You break the law, you kill people, you will be judged by your god.  You will not be judged by me, or at least that is what the bible say’s, so this is why I am no longer a Christian because I don’t believe in advocation of terrorism or killing of any kind.  One abortion doesn’t justify killing others, and I’m talking about American law, not religious law.

We all don’t follow the same faith, and we all don’t believe in the same thing.  So, keep your religion to yourself, do not force it on other’s, nor should it be used to target other groups of people, not of that belief.

Corporations threaten Organic Industry with Toxins!

I don’t know why the US is still purchasing products from China after the products we’ve been getting from them.  First, the lives of our pets have been endangered by Chinese factories who use poison as a substitute for protein, second, our children’s lives are put endanger by the toxins in the toy’s purchased from China, and third, American’s have not jobs…  Why are American companies taking American jobs to China?  Are they that unpatriotic and greedy that they are more willing to take jobs over seas, so that they can bulk their bank accounts at Swiss banks to evade American taxes?

What ever happened to grown in America?

What ever happened to made in America?

If you go to WalMart, you should be ashamed!  Look at all those products because most are made in China! We’re not saying you can buy foreign products.  We’re saying that everything doesn’t have to be made or grown in other country’s.  America was founded by small family farmers!  Small farms made America.  American’s don’t have jobs because greedy corporation’s take those jobs over seas.  I’d call that anti-American!  First these corporation’s received tax subsidies which small family farmers were not eligible or not able to apply, and as a result those small family farmers had to sell their land to these greedy corporations, and family lost their farms that they had for generations!


Corporations Undermine Organic Reputation: Chinese Soy Imports and Toxic Petrochemicals

New Report: Many Organic Soy Food Brands Importing Beans from China We no longer trust these imports to feed our pets. They have no place in organicsCornucopia, WI: Tremendous growth in the organic soy foods industry has occurred over the last two decades as consumers seek healthy dietary alternative sources of protein. Many companies touting their “natural” or “organic” soy brands have found favor in the supermarket. A new report, released this week by The Cornucopia Institute, lifts the veil on some of these companies, exposing widespread importation of soybeans from China and the use of toxic chemicals to process soy foods labeled as “natural.”The report, Beyond the Bean: The Heroes and Charlatans of the Natural and Organic Soy Foods Industry, and an accompanying ratings scorecard of organic brands, separates industry heroes-who have gone out of their way to connect with domestic farmers-from agribusinesses that are exploiting the trust of consumers.Part of the meteoric rise in organic food sales has been built on the expectation from consumers that organic foods support a more environmentally sound form of agriculture and one that financially rewards family farmers through their patronage. “Importing Chinese soybeans or contributing to the loss of rain forests by shipping in commodities from Brazil just flat-out contradicts the working definition of organic agriculture,” said Mark Kastel, Senior Farm Policy Analyst at The Cornucopia Institute.Through a nationwide survey of the industry, onsite farm, and processor visits, plus reviews of import data, Cornucopia assembled a rating system aimed at empowering consumers and wholesale buyers with the knowledge necessary to support brands that respect the fundamental tenets of organics.

American Soldiers are NOT Christian Crusaders!

I’m so thankful that Bush is gone! 

I find this disturbing to say the least!  Bush sent soldiers into Iraq, as warriors for “god”, whose god I ask because American’s have a diverse people who practice diverse spiritual practices.  America has always had a diverse culture of people with diverse spiritual practices.  Bush was suppose to keep his practice out of America’s government [Separation of Church and State] , it’s a personal practice and it’s a shame that he sent American soldiers into a Muslim country with that attitude.

“U.S. soldiers “are not Christian crusaders, and they ought not be depicted as such.”
                                                            – Rev. Barry W. Lynn

Pentagon: Bible Quotes No Longer In Reports

The Pentagon said Monday it no longer includes a Bible quote on the cover page of daily intelligence briefings it sends to the White House as was practice during the Bush administration.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said he did not know how long the Worldwide Intelligence Update cover sheets quoted from the Bible. Air Force Maj. Gen. Glen Shaffer, who was responsible for including them, retired in August 2003, according to his biography.

For a period in 2003, at least, the daily reports prepared for President George W. Bush carried quotes from the books of Psalms and Ephesians and the Gospel of Peter. At the time, the reports focused largely on the war in Iraq.

The Bible quotes apparently aimed to support Bush at a time when soldiers’ deaths in Iraq were on the rise, according to the June issue of CQ magazine. But they offended at least one Muslim analyst at the Pentagon and worried other employees that the passages were inappropriate.

On Thursday, April 10, 2003, for example, the report quoted the book of Psalms _ “Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him. … To deliver their soul from death.” _ and featured pictures of the statue of Saddam Hussein being pulled down and celebrating crowds in Baghdad. [read more]

Medical Marijuana Shops in California

Federal law doesn’t trump state law.  LESS GOVERNMENT!  Hello, wasn’t Bush’s first election theme, “less government”?  I think it was, but he totally ignored that and created more government control over American’s.  States shouldn’t be force to follow federal law if the state approved a law. 

Of course, nothing trumps constitutional law, and medical marijuana is a civil right.  OMT!  It’s only an herb given to us by the creator for it’s medicinal properties! 

The police official should be looking for other work instead of attacking these shops all the time.

Supreme Court Hands Medical Marijuana Major Victory

The U.S. Supreme Court handed medical marijuana patients and advocates a resounding victory on Monday, refusing to hear a case brought by San Diego County, which has long chafed at implementing statewide medical marijuana laws.

The state of California, in an effort to systematize the 1996 voter-approved initiative, required localities to implement identification card programs for patients with doctor approval in 2004. Such ID cards are required to enter medical marijuana shops in California and can be shown to police officers who find patients in possession of marijuana.

San Diego County, however, argued that the federal ban on marijuana trumps the state law, meaning they are not required to follow the state law. The county filed suit in 2006. Both the San Diego Superior Court and the Fourth District Court of Appeals rejected the argument, which was followed by the California Supreme Court’s refusal to review the case in 2008.

The San Diego Board of Supervisors voted to appeal to the Supreme Court.

“The courts have made clear that federal law does not preempt California’s medical marijuana law and that local officials must comply with that law,” said Joe Elford, chief counsel with Americans for Safe Access (ASA), a national medical marijuana advocacy group with a large presence in California. “No longer will local officials be able to hide behind federal law and resist upholding California’s medical marijuana law.”

It is not the job, in other words, of local cops or municipalities to enforce federal laws. In fact, the federal government has never made such an argument. The California counties acted on their own. [read more]
