We're On The Road And We're Gunning For The Buddha


There's some crazy music coming out these days.

 If the Dalai Lama knows he's a faker (and I'm convinced he does) this would be a smart move:
"Dalai Lama says if scientific method finds Buddhist principles wrong, Buddhism must change."

It's whatever you say it is, just say it's Buddhism.

Meanwhile, probably from looking at old Hitler photos, Salon's Mary Elizabeth Williams has mastered patting herself on the back while giving the Black Power salute:
"B-37 may have been legitimately concerned that a book would all but surely expose her identity and put her privacy and safety in jeopardy. She may have been motivated entirely by self-preservation. And her retreat certainly doesn’t spell the end of the Trayvon Martin industry – there will be other deals to be made, other stories to be sold off. And none of it changes the fact that a kid is still dead, that parents still grieve for a son lost. But what unfolded so quickly on Monday – from a potential profit off senseless death to a very public shaming that led to a change of heart – shows that sometimes our outrage really does have a positive effect."

Death threats - I mean, "a very public shaming that led to a change of heart" - always seem to do the trick, once someone's "been motivated entirely by self-preservation," don't they, Gangsta?

The things you can read in the so-called legitimate press these days,...


  1. Something tells me the Lama will find some scientists that "prove" Buddhism is true (after all, you can find "scientists" who will prove Jenny McCarthy is a genius).

    And if I never hear the names George Zimmerman or Trayvon Martin again I'll be a happy person (which means I'm gaming the table, because we all know it isn't going to happen -- too much woo to be pitched for everybody on that little story yet).


    *personally, I think they were both idiots (one was more guilty than the other, but he's already paid his pound, and there is no law against doing dumb things, so there's that) -- idiot ships who unfortunately for the rest of us bumped in the night, and everybody else gets to pay for the hype the players can't resist playing over their idiocy

  2. Well said, PW. I wish somebody would come home from a long vacation and discover their security camera filmed the whole ordeal. I wouldn't mind in the least if it proved everything I thought happened was wrong if it laid this whole thing to rest.

  3. If there was it would get suppressed...this isn't about any right or wrong, or even about George or Trayvon (who, while both idiots imhao, are/were still human beings...not one side or the other's favorite pet strawmen; they live or die by what happens, the players don't).
    The narratives have to be upheld! (no matter what the costs -- that includes making sure that there is a steady supply of other Trayvon Martins and other George Zimmermans to feed into the meat grinder along with the rest of us).
