    Have more sex.  Just for the fuck of it.  Your cardiovascular system will thank you, plus you will smile more.

    Common sense is so uncommon…we could all stand for it to be a little more so.

  3. 1) stop teaching fear

    2) stop teaching greed

    2a) Eliminate money.

    3) come to senses

    4) turn over running of planet to small, nonhierarchical people’s collectives. Move beyond centralized control to free participation in and democratization of all human institutions.

    5) form Council of Strict But Fair Grandmas to cut through the BS of anyone who tries to reestablish the state in any form (see 4)

    6) reallocate all worldwide military resources as the people see fit (hopefully to produce planetary rescue technologies and develop alternative energy)

    7) establish world resources council (subject to the authority of the collectives) to review, reform and reinvent farming practices and technologies and allocation of food, water rights and technologies and allocation of water

    8)employ all planetary citizens (billions) making less than two dollars a day (everyone, since there is no longer any money) to clean, polish and replant planet

    8) crash course teaching program to teach people to be teachers and to teach people to read

    9) teach people to be doctors, engineers, research scientists, artists, and philosophers

    10) rest, knowing that world is saved

    11) Barack who?

  4. Nuking Davos Switzerland at the height of a certain conference.

    Can’t we just put #5 (strict but fair grandmas) in charge, and do away with #4 all together?  Sure they might institute something like mandatory world wide bingo night every Wed., but the proceeds could be used to pay for employing the first #8.  

  5. but Buhdy, I’m afraid of common sense and if use it, I won’t get to make a ‘killing’ in the market, and it will impact my life style. It would mean that my enemies would win! If Barack could bowl it would make it an elitist pastime and ruin it!  

  6. actual female bodies. Made in a union shop of course.

    You can’t make revolution in a pair of jeans that gaps in the waist or somewhere else.

    Don’t wait for someone else to lead.

    Although it’s kind of implied by # 3 I think.

  7. Did you intentionally make a post to which my sig is a direct rejoinder?

    The world does not need to be “saved”.  At best, people do.  And I don’t really believe that either.

  8. to orgasm.

    …  it is on the front page, afterall
