vertical line Quote: "Who cares, check out this documentary! US is FUBAR!:)
Like Armitage speaks of how the Whole World tought Bush a Geniuse and celebrated when Saddams statue toppled! He`s an insider and really seem to believe we watch the same garbage and don`t read papers over here too or?!
The Whole World was humongous impressed by the small group of selected people bussed in to the area under military planning to topple some never mind statue with ittybitty help of a bulldozer. (US is long since way up there togheter with some chubby Chinese singing talents. I`m not saying that we are so much better over here, like Putin and his Russia's "unfortunate Muslim terrorist attacks" But he is good! While you guys most probable are forced to relate to more and more absurd horrendous stupidity before the rest of the Kennedy`s are dead and the second coming of Christ)


"
.........

" . . . while you guys . . . most probable forced to relate . . . "?
Who guys? What guys? Do you think that everyone posting on this board lives in the US?

vertical line Characteristically, it’s often the fascist who says “I’m not saying that we are so much better over here . . . ”; it’s the fascist who is intolerant of sounds from the “you guys”, the fascist who does the shushing - it seems to be a part of the fascist psychological make-up wanting to shut the “you guys” up.

“Brave man”? So you would “ask” Osho to “stop his talk” by shhing ‘fascist’ at him like the sound of hot air escaping from a balloon? Have the strong fumes you breathed for a year in your apartment got rid of your brain as well as your belly?

There is a beautiful simile known in India, that it is the empty vessel that makes the noise, when it is filled with water it makes no noise.

vertical line The latent wolfness in domestic dog-breeds is ustilised efffectively to pen domesticated herd-animals. The psyche of the sheepdog, for example, is unconsciously nonplussed when the shepherd doesn’t rush in to kill the sheep, but soon gets used to the way his master does things. Dogs work well off the leash when they have been trained to a satisfactory standard on the leash - the dog behaviour is then controlled psychologically via the invisible leash. The inherent quality of loyalty in dogs (loyal to the pack because therein lies the best chance for a meal), is used to train guards, hunters, trackers, sniffers, guides for the blind and police auxiliaries. In expert hands, a dog will even lead his master’s enemy to his master’s house.

It is vital that a domesticated dog living as part of a human family knows his place. For the dog, the family is a pack and he must learn very quickly that his position in the pack is below that of the smallest, most vulnerable human child. Virtually all problems associated with aggression in family pet dogs, arises because the dog believes itself to be top-dog (leader of the pack) or is vying for the position, sensing an opening.

Dogs started off as sentinels, guards to warn of approach. A dog is proud of the services he offers to his master and hates the cat for purring and alienating his master’s affections from his honest crap-eating face. Plus, cats have no sense of right and wrong. This is why dogs hate cats. Dogs are the only other animal apart from humans with a knowledge of right and wrong - the only other self righteous animal.

Cats, however began as psychic companions. Cats do not offer services. The cat offers herself.

At one time all new Nazi SS recruits were given a pet kitten to care for, to look after form a month or so. Initiation involved, on the order of a superior officer, the gouging out of the eye of the pet kitten. The idea is to demonstrate a lack of empathy, become a superhuman, an Ubermensch by carrying out a subhuman act.

“The snarl of a panther is certainly more dangerous than the snarl of a dog, but it isn’t ugly. A cat’s rage is beautiful, burning with a pure cat flame and crackling blue sparks, eyes blazing and sputtering. But a dog’s snarl is ugly, a redneck lynch-mob snarl . . . snarl of someone got a “Kill a Queer for Christ” sticker on his heap, a self-righteous occupied snarl. When you see that snarl you are looking at something that has no face of its own. A dog’s rage is not his. It is dictated by his trainer. And lynch-mob rage is dictated by conditioning.”
~William Burroughs

It's just a quote. With another quote.
UG says, "Osho is a pimp".
Jiddu says, "Osho is a criminal".
UG says, "Jiddu is a fake, a wordsmith only."
Osho says, "That UG is one angry bitter man who ripped Jiddu off."
Me? I couldn't care less what any of them think about of other. They're all dead.

vertical line I rejected the gift of any intended insult from those who have intended the insults and there have been a few intended. So that particular post in question is directed toward those it applies to. There is no need to name them.

Re: the quotes; I posted “respond/react” so there is a choice between respond or react, that is the meaning of the forward slash between the two words. You chose to react.

Re: “maybe relax and not try so much to prove . . .etc” is a (dishonest) assumption (you don’t know whether or not I’m relaxed and maybe have assumed that I am “trying to prove” something). It could have been honest without the word ‘maybe’ - this may indicate that you are not relaxed.

Your comments about rustic thinking all that stuff in response to a quote is sarcastic belittlement.

Re: “you’re nuts” is intended as humour but maybe you interpreted it as insult and may have accepted it by indicating it means I “[think] I know something about lehish”. Perhaps I should snow my posts with smileys. :)

I was under the impression you understood the intentions and what I was saying. However, misunderstandings do arise easily in this medium. You asked what I posted the quotes for, well perhaps you could have explained why you posted the Osho quote and then maybe snibbler could explain why he referred to me as “fascist”, why you keep on shushing fumes, why shayne overtly intended the insult punk, retard, asura blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda - in fact while I think about it you could all just start doing some explaining about why you posted this and that - like you wait hours before shushing another post cold when you had the opportunity to shush it warm. You have no qualms or difficulties in using the word ‘you’ but can’t use the word ‘I’. Even your beloved Osho knew that the words, ‘I’, ‘me’, ‘mine’, etc are mere conventions of language.

I really don’t know what this is all about but I’m ‘fed up’, haha, replete with it, haha- whatever it is and whatever you think it is, it’s completely and utterly pointless. It just seems to be the kind of stuff that gets your saliva glands going - it’s the same whatever you post and whichever forum you post it in.

I just read over this before posting and I’ve rambled on for long enough - I’ve decided I won’t be posting any thing else. So, if you have somehow felt offended by any words of rustic’s, all I can repeat is that there was no offence intended. The same applies for all the other posters. Just think of all those words as grains of sand slipping through the space between yourselves. Or feast on them to your heart’s delight. You chews.

A thank you to Chon Tri and Alan for providing and maintaining the site and for the opportunity to post in the forum.
