Try this one out for size: A retired cop patient of mine believes the US didn't kill Usama bin Laden. He thinks OBL is being kept alive to be tortured for information about al-Qaeda. He further believes that the Navy SEAL Team 6 who were involved in the operation were murdered by the US government. Remember the recent helicopter crash that killed 30 Americans in Afghanistan? He thinks the chopper was shot down by friendly fire.

Made ME wonder.

...or is it wrong for an American woman to say that she's "just had Indian food so don't breathe" to the Indian lady currently threading said white woman's eyebrows?

Wow! A real life version of the house in the movie Up.

From Hands of Serenity Healing during Hurricane Irene:

"As I sit and watch the tops of the trees torque in the intermittent winds, I can't help but think what a lesson in resilience the trees bring to us. A tree guy once told me that every drop of rain increases the weight of the leaf 100 times. Multiply that by the thousands of leaves the tree bears and imagine the extra weight the tree is carrying. And so the shaking and torquing of the branches actually helps the tree to lessen its burden as it releases the extra weight of the water."

People really are idiots. Going surfing or kayaking during a hurricane? Walking along the beaches waiting for the storm? Staying at your house in a flood zone when a monster hurricane is coming? "No way in hell I'm leaving!' 'I wanna protect my property.' 'Oh I've lived here all my life. I'm staying.' 'Well, my neighbors are staying so I am, too.' They're just asking for it. At least people with animals have a valid reason to stay: they don't want to leave their pets behind. Kudos to most of the states in the storm's path, they have set up animal shelters as well. Hard-earned lesson from Katrina.

Then when things get really bad, they'll call 911. How dare they ask these emergency personnel to risk their lives to save their stupid asses? I loved what a N or S Carolina fire chief said: something along the lines of they'll be getting picked up from the roofs of their houses, or getting scraped off their yards if they don't listen.

Even if it is over-hyped, it's still better to err on the side of safety. If people don't get warned enough, they get mad. If they're warned, they get mad anyway about the panic caused by the media coverage. It's good to be prepared anyway than be caught unawares.

So let's hope Irene calms herself down and behaves better than anticipated. If only for the sake of those idiots who refused to evacuate. Be safe everyone.

Oh my gosh! I made basa this article and was so inis! Whatever happened to "Ang wikang Pilipino ay wikang panlahat. Ilaw at lakas sa tuwid na landas."? Ampotcha! Clearly, this James Soriano is off his sosyal na rocker kasi hindi marunong mag-Pilipino. My gulay! He needs to make suri his pagibig for his bayan. I want to makilala him just so I can sampal sampal his face with a Filipino-English diksyonaryo.

Golly! Am I just overreacting? Why am I so galit?

"Be kind to yourself. Begin to love and approve of yourself."---Louise Hay

from Facebook:

The President has just confirmed that the DC earthquake occurred on a rare and obscure fault-line, apparently known as "Bush's Fault". The President also announced that the Secret Service & Maxine Waters continues an investigation of the quake's suspicious ties to the Tea Party. Conservatives, however, claim that it was caused by the founding fathers rolling over in their graves. Historians confirm that the founding fathers have been on rotisserie status in their graves since the 2000 election.

"I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive."---Henry Miller

...that together we are strong. When you join your hearts and prayers and intentions with the hearts and prayers and intentions of others, almost anything becomes possible.

Perfect on this day of a rare East coast earthquake.

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo

From Kundalini Yoga: This is the Adi Mantra that precedes Kundalini Yoga practice, tuning one in to the higher self. Ong is "Infinite Creative energy in manifestation and activity". ("Om" or Aum is God absolute and unmanifested), Namo is "reverent greetings' implying humility, Guru means "teacher or wisdom", Dev means "Divine or of God" and Namo reaffirms humility and reverence. In all it means, "I call upon Divine Wisdom".

"Some folks has a lot of things around them that shines for other peoples. I think that maybe some of them was in tunnels. And in that tunnel, the only light they had, was inside of them. And then long after they escape that tunnel, they still be shining for everybody else."---Claireece Jones from the film 'Precious'

"Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

"We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize."---Thich Nhat Hanh

"Surely the earth can be saved by all the people who insist on love."---Alice Walker

The Japanese people are turning in lost items and cash from the tsunami/earthquake zone, while food aid to Somalians are being stolen and sold? What is wrong with the world?

I picked up Chinese food tonight for dinner. First thing I heard was a man saying "sasampalin kita diyan eh!" (I'm going to slap you!) That's when I noticed a Filipino family sitting at a table. There were two little boys, and the younger one was misbehaving. I bet if they were home, the kid might have gotten what his dad was threatening him with.

Isn't there a better way to discipline your kids other than smacking them around?

I love Anderson Cooper's laugh, but I think I love his giggling more!

Loving this song right now.

Durga: Om Dum Durgayei Namaha

Rough Translation: 'Om and Salutations to that feminine energy which protects from all manner of negative influences, and for which Dum is the seed.'

Durga is the Divine Protectress. Typically shown riding a lion or a tiger, Durga has a hundred arms, each with a different weapon of destruction. Yet her face is exquisitely beautiful to behold. The interpretation is that to the pious and the sincere seeker after truth, her sight can produce ecstasy and a variety of beautiful forms.

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony."---Mahatma Gandhi

Lakshmi: Om Shrim Mahalakshmiyei Swaha

Rough Translation: 'Om and salutations to that feminine energy which bestows all manner of wealth, and for which Shrim is the seed'

This mantra has not only been used for the purpose of attracting prosperity, but also for drawing in proper friends, clearing up family misunderstandings and quarrels, and smoothing some health problems. As we all know, there are many different kinds of wealth. As you use this mantra, focus on the kind of wealth you wish to manifest in your life.

"Unless you've done it, please stop speaking confidently about how easy and obvious it would be to punch a shark in the nose."---Funny or Die

"A wonderful way to ensure the safety and stability of your home and possessions is to surround them with 'white light'. White light is an angel energy that has a life force and intelligence all its own. When you surround yourself or your possessions with white light, you've put up a shield that ensures its protection."---Doreen Virtue

To Ganesha: Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha. ( 'Om and salutations to the remover of obstacles for which Gum is the seed.')

I hate technology. I wouldn't have any newfangled gadgets if not for my sisters. My cell phone is old. I don't feel the need to run out and purchase the latest must-have electronics. I'm especially peeved when I ask other people to use my old digital camera, especially when someone is taking the same shot with 3 different cameras. I feel judged and get defensive because mine is inevitably the low-tech one. I particularly remember this skinny blonde in the city last year who just simply gave up using my camera after 2-3 attempts to take a photo of me and some friends. Did you ever think it was your fault? *shakes fist*

But my point was, if you disapprove of my camera, then just refuse to take a picture. Unless you're buying me the latest and greatest one, then shut your piehole.(spoken with Clint Eastwood's voice)

"Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, surrounded by assholes."---William Gibson

Facebook statuses I found to be true but never re-posted:

TO ALL MY FELLOW NUTS-I just realized..We sit and stare at a screen...We talk to ourselves...we have imaginary friends and farms, cities and fake animals...we cook imaginary food in imaginary bakeries...we poke people and think it's OK...we even write on walls...think about it. Facebook is a mental hospital and we are all patients. Feel free to steal this...I just did...Party in my ward XXXXX

Welcome to Facebook...Where love stories are perfect. Where shit talkers tell the truth. Where everyone brags they have the perfect life and claim to be in love with their partners. Where your enemies are the ones that visit your profile the most. Where your ex-friends block you. Where your ex-love unfriends you. Where you post something & people interpret whatever the hell they want.Repost if you agree. ;)
