The Olympics are the worship of man, the worship of his body. But sports are the worship of man's body; war is the ultimate that all of these lead to. The ultimate manifestation of all of these is War.--His physical prowess, his mechanical ingenuity, his tactical genius and his indomitable spirit! The Olympics are the worship of man, the worship of his body. But sports are the worship of man's body; war is the ultimate that all of these lead to. The ultimate manifestation of all of these is War.--His physical prowess, his mechanical ingenuity, his tactical genius and his indomitable spirit!War is the ultimate combination. Man at his best, which is his worst!--WAR! His most destructive worst, his greatest strength, his greatest genius, his greatest inventive power and his greatest spirit, patriotism or whatever you want to call it, is used for war and a competitive spirit against others who are doing the same.
See how this competitive sports thing has been the final stages of every great civilisation and empire!--The worship of the body. It's very sexual too, as you notice, all these things are very sexy. So sex is included as a part, but in some ways a very minor part.Sports glorifies sex, but at the same time belittles it and pretends to dislike it.
Did you know that the Nicaragua-El Salvador War, in which 20,000 people were killed, started over a football game? In fact, Ernest Hemingway, the world famous writer, who spent so much of his time in Latin America and Spain, said you could eliminate most Latin American wars and their causes by simply banning football or soccer! Those games get them so worked up into a frenzy against each other that nothing but a total all-out war can truly satisfy the spirit of it! The whole thing is a worship of the flesh and the worship of man with a competitive spirit of war, the very essence of contention and competition and struggle: warfare, and the perfect preparation for it! Sports is war in disguise, and the Olympics disguised all this under the totally false and contrary theme song of "Peace"! That's their theme!--Isn't that something. So they speak peace while war is in their hearts, and they talk peace while they prepare for war--prepare their bodies for war!
Is the Matt Cain.... perfect?
you have only a small point thier ,;SECURITY, can prevent that in an area during cook-offs team members only, that does not seem as wee a good enough excuse.we the fans of him,expect this and expect him to show he's hands on more often.no-one doubts he can do it .Its not that, we just expect. and DR. BBQ ROCKS ,LOVE WHAT THAT GUY DOES.
I know your questions are tongue-in-cheek, but, in reality, imagine trying to concentrate on cooking perfect BBQ when you have a thousand fans trying to get your autograph. Guy loves BBQ and I am sure he wishes that sometimes he were not so famous so that he could sit back with a cold one and just enjoy his friends and the good times. The price of fame
To equate the Fourth of July with Christianity is absurd! I do not like the spreading of American-style democracy at the hands of the bloodthirsty and warlike Americans themselves. This does not lead to more Christianity, but to a nation drifting further.
Has America brought more Christianity and Christian values to Iraq or Afghanistan, or other nations it has attacked in one way or another in recent years? No, the opposite is true. America cannot impose righteousness on others. That is a personal affair, not something that can be imposed in a national crusade.
Materialism, "the devotion to material wealth and possessions at the expense of spiritual or intellectual values," is virtually synonymous with capitalism, the profit-driven system that dominates the economies and nations of today.

Too many Americans are still out of work to justify cuts to the food stamp program. Democrats and Republicans banded together in the Senate to defeat an amendment by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to slash spending on the program nearly in half.
Still, a version of the 2012 Farm Bill passed by the Senate Agriculture Committee and being debated by the Senate floor contains a $4.5 billion reduction over the next decade to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program budget. The cuts aren’t as steep as Paul’s proposal and they represent a fraction of the federal program’s $80 billion a year spending. But it would nonetheless be a devastating blow to poor families. An amendment restoring cuts, offered by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is the best solution. Her amendment would not add to the deficit. Restoring cuts to the food stamp program would be paid for by capping subsidies to the highly profitable crop insurance companies
They even made the poor people fight these wars for them, when all the poor really wanted was peace and enough to eat and wear and a place to sleep.They refuse to fight these wars and rebelled against letting the rich rob them.

Curious about this book and hope read this as my Dad also went to UC Berkeley and would have been 100 this year . . . and majored in Agriculture and Forestry.
I used to sit on my porch in the morning and watch them lift off every year until they forced the closure of Windsorland Mobile Home Park...but that's another story for another day...
This is an amazing spectacle to see and I suggest that you get up before the sun does, drive to Windsor and watch...then eat breakfast at the Downtown Grill or get a cuppa at Cafe Noto...
I look forward to reading this book.
Music. You know the drill. Get your summer on with headliners Chuck Prophet, Cold Blood and others on Saturday and Sunday, June 9–10, in downtown Novato...This may work..Not Dick Dale, this year...but I love Mr. and Mrs. Prophet, and ColdBlood and so much more...b
Please take a look at my campaign, http.www.tiffanyreneeforcongress.com I have kept it positive and I've actually been working in my community for the people for over 20 years. I enough elected experience to get the job done without the political baggage and campaign favors required of politicians that raise hundreds of thousands of dollars. I refuse to spend 30-40 hours a week dialing for dollars. I want to work and fight for you! Please don't buy into the old system of campaigning. Do your homework. Vote for Tiffany Renée for our future!
No bomb in the Santa Rosa case!? I guess what Talbot and Helvarg saw wasn't a real bomb and Bari's admission that her husband was involved was a figment of their imagination. DAS&G needs to start making up better lies.
Bottom line, Lawson has not gone the route of digging into Soloman, Huffman or Adams' past to negative campaign on a spin of lies. I have heard nothing negative come out from her campaign about others and she had money to do it well if she wanted to go that route ... That's integrity. Huffman seems to have some too so far.
Integrity? You just decided to vote for Stacey Lawson? Sure.
My God. Is anyone paying attention to these horrible actions by Paul Andersen. Happy Susan Adams will not get elected if this is the kind of people she trusts and has on her staff. I can only imagine Norman Soloman is just as bad ... spending big bucks to slander another candidate.
What ever happened to integrity?
Stacey Lawson just got my vote. The only "real" candidate in the race who is focusing us, the people. Seriously a sign of strength to keep the focus on us and our needs.
I bet you could ask almost any American today why the U.S. was fighting in Vietnam and they couldn't give you a good reason. You know the reasons that Johnson and Kennedy gave?--"We're fighting for freedom for the Vietnamese. We're fighting to protect free South Vietnam Well, whether they wanted to be or not they wound up not being free, the U.S. lost the war and North Vietnam took over!
Really now, how many Americans really cared about the Vietnamese being free or not? How many American boys would have been happy to go over there and give their lives to free the Vietnamese? How many had such idealistic ideals? They don't know what they fought the Korean war for either, which they lost. They also don't know why they fought the Grenadian war or why they fought the Panamanian war. They don't know what they fought these wars for.--And they know just as little about why they're now going to be made to fight and die. I don't even think most of them would be willing to go there and die for the oil.

I like trains. Lagunitas, Forest Knolls, Woodacre, Fairfax, Pt.Reyes Station were all villages founded along a train that could get you to school, work and shoping all the way to San Francisco. All the houses were built within walking distance (1 mile) of the stations , which in the Valley were often just a mile apart.
You just can't set a couple stations miles apart on top of sprawl and expect the ridership to support a train to nowhere. I like trains, I just don't like profiteering at taxpayers expense.
Thanks for acknowledging my Pacific Sun endorsement.

There is much more regarding this to be learned here. Spread the word... there will be a Day of Shame on SSU on May 12th.

I don't think it's fair or logical to even suggest that rape and sexual assault has any connection with the word bitch in a rap song. Whats next a ban from playing Katy Perrys Last Friday Night because the drinking theme in her lyrics are going to cause drinking and driving deaths? If people rape or drink and drive their not doing it because a song told them its o.k. A college campus shouldn't be a place that buries its head in the sand and trys to be void of pop culture. If a couple of songs have references to drugs, liquor, weed or even drop the word bitch a few times it isn't a time to go running to the president of the college and asking him to intervene, its time for you to get more involved with whatever group is responsible. Or at least walk up to the DJ or some other person with that group and let him or her know how you feel about certain songs before you go running to the president. And what if it was a female DJ playing songs with the word bitch in it, or a female artist like Alanis Morissette singing "Im a Bitch" what then? Are they inciting rape?
