Almost 4:20 on another Lazy Sunday afternoon in the windy desert spring

I figure that it's important that I have a little discipline to write to you each day...it's funny the feelings you get after a little kind catnip mixture of eroticism, raw horniness and then crazy midlife desires of starting a family in the little village...my neigbors of the tiny cute cul desac are washing their cars and doing gardening. Last night, the English teacher across from my class, Mr. Rauch, Raphael (Erowyn's husband), and I had a few beers outside looking at the stars wishing the street lamp wasnt working. Raphaels great aim and velocity nailed both the shell , and the outer glass of the bulb with a couple of rocks. Each time, it looked like it would go out but it came back....
the stars in the desert are so beautiful, shame about the lights
and then its nice to have some intellectual conversation until the wee hours in the am while expanding our horizons...;)

I'm starting to wish that most of the teachers would stay as I get to know them and start having hope for the world. They are young intellectuals , with various altruistic past endeavors such as the peace corp and TFA....
we all share the same hopes for a cleaner less violent world...
I walk past the houses of the village, the older duplexes and triplexes have a much homier feel with the much larger yards than the newer more clone like homes....
the various gardens are all being planted for the fruits and blossoms of June...
it would almost be fun hanging out here for a couple of weeks in June getting to know everybody better without the stress of school!
There's only about 5 more weeks of classes before I go walkabout part of the time with Muffy. I'll have to ask Charles to watch Buffy. I worry about her like my daughter!
its a wonderful feeling with the end in sight of a fun summer...it makes you feel like a kid or only college age...you wish, Garvald!

Saturday: Back from the Pow Wow

I went with the Native American club to Albuquerque to see the gathering of Nations. It was a great trip. We stayed two nights at the Marriott and I filmed Lindsay Wagner who was in the audience. She still looks very young and beautiful . She must be at least 60. I will tell you more about it tomorrow! Buffy was so excited to see me when I came back. It was the longest time that I was without her! The other time I had to leave her at my house was when we stayed over night for the state chess championships at the beginning of the month.

Sunday: from newsbusters.org

I can see how some thought that the Bush impersonator was funnier than Colbert. It's amazing how much of a perfect clone they picked. He had his mannerisms and talk perfected. Saddam had doubles so I guess Bush should do the same since his popularity is sliding and the world's animosity towards him is growing! I think this impersonator would actually do a better job reading the scripts so that Fox " wouldn't have to edit" his video clips so much!
It only helped Bush that he could make fun of himself just as Reagan was a master of self effacement.
Colbert had alot of cajones to poke fun of the Bush and the administration. It appeared that many of his jokes went flat because of his audience but in a different crowd there would be a much different reaction. Colbert played the part very well and it almost seemed like he was a combination of many of the characters who reside on this site in need of a serious reality check.

Tuesday 12 minutes after 420, Just had my teeth cleened getting off a little early on Wednesday. Now later, maybe I can check out the ballroom dancing and have a couple beers to celebrated no cavities, Ma!

I'm generally happy with things. Mcb came by the life skills class and glad she didn't catch me at the computer. I don't want any animosity towards me in from the assistants about being on the computer a couple minutes. Today, I took Randy for a walk outside in the courtyard. It was a beautiful morning with the trees coming to life along with the new mural on the prison like wall of the band building gradually evolving ...now the Serendipachi mountains have been painted and the sun...it looks good!
Vinnie, the art teacher showed me the sketch of how it will look with a cougar on top of the mountain and the stars to one side and the sun coming up on the other horizon. His fiancee is the corn pollen teacher (It deals with Navaho culture) and she is getting her class involved with it!

My chess players are more enthused than ever about getting in as much chess as they can almost begging for more practice. There are 4 of them than are very competitive with each other. They all have some type of learning disability but I can their games evolving into much better play!

Wednesday: the more I think about today, I realize that I'd put it in the top 5% at least for these past couple of years...nothing eventful today, only the dental check up with no cavities!

Getting along with Betty Lou again!...
most excited about the impact I'm making on these young chess players with learning disabilities..They can't get enough chess. I'm excited again about these players doing well in the district wide indivdual tournament in town. I'm excited about making a "human chess movie"!...
excited about: learning more about the Navajo culture as they learn to accept me..
about these rice crispies with a little sugar and iced milk!
about seeing Muffy in a few weeks...
about the murals on the school walls,...
about success coming to this poor town!
about living a long life with so little time to do so many things!
was that the spark that incited all the artists, authors, leaders, etc.?
they realizes their mortality and did something great, overcoming their own mid life crisis??
about how wonderful it would be if there was another chance to be on this exciting earth! If I knew I would be coming back I would be so much happier yet I would want fit so much into this short life!

    CBS Hypes Gouging, NBC Focuses on Fears of Greens & ABC Rejects Liberal Premises
    Posted by Brent Baker on April 25, 2006 - 21:46.
    The broadcast network evening shows delivered a variety of spins Tuesday night on the price of gas, with CBS raising a “windfall tax on big oil” and featuring an in-studio segment with left-wing busybody Eliot Spitzer, the Attorney General of New York, about price gouging and NBC's Brian Williams worried about the concerns of those want a “greener America.” ABC's Betsy Stark rejected the price-gouging charge and while CBS insisted that eliminating environmental regulations would have little effect, Stark reported such a suspension would have an immediate impact.

    CBS Evening News anchor Russ Mitchell asked White House reporter Jim Axelrod about the idea of "slapping a windfall tax on big oil companies for these record profits that they're making?" Mitchell then turned to Spitzer: "As a consumer, it seems like it's the wild West. How easy is it for a gas station, for an oil company to just jack up the price of gas?" NBC's Williams set up a story on President Bush's proposals by citing how “advocates for a greener America” are “seeing red over what they see as a quickly degrading environment." Williams soon asked David Gergen "what are the chances” that the high prices will lead the U.S. to now move from a “carbon based society to one that's more green?" Gergen replied: "Well, one hopes that's the case...” (Transcripts follow.)

    World News Tonight ran a “Reality Check” in which Betsy Stark noted that while “the President's pledge to crack down on price gouging may help quiet critics who believe the market is being manipulated,” the “reality is the industry is often accused and almost never found guilty."

    CBS's Jim Axelrod dismissed the impact of environmental rules that regulate the formulation of gasoline: "The President also wants certain environmental regulations to be suspended so that more gas can be used by more states interchangeably. Again, the idea is to pump up the supply. A few more drops headed to the barrel maybe, but really nothing's going to bring prices down anytime soon." In contrast, Stark asserted: "What could impact prices almost immediately is a suspension of environmental regulations. The reality here is that waiving the elaborate rules on summertime blends will likely push supplies up and prices down."

    Some highlights from Tuesday, April 25 gas price stories run on the broadcast network evening newscasts, gathered with the help of the MRC's Brad Wilmouth:

    CBS Evening News. Jim Axelrod concluded from the White House:


    "The President also wants certain environmental regulations to be suspended so that more gas can be used by more states interchangeably. Again, the idea is to pump up the supply. A few more drops headed to the barrel maybe, but really nothing's going to bring prices down anytime soon, Russ."

    Russ Mitchell then tossed leading and softball questions to his featured guest at the anchor desk, left-wing activist Eliot Spitzer, New York's Attorney General:

    "And joining me is a man who's keeping a close watch on the rise in gas prices, the Attorney General of the state of New York, Eliot Spitzer, who's also a candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor. Attorney General, thanks for joining us today."

    Attorney General Eliot Spitzer (D-NY): "My pleasure."

    Mitchell: "As a consumer, it seems like it's the wild West. How easy is it for a gas station, for an oil company to just jack up the price of gas?"

    Spitzer: "Very easy. And what we found after Katrina was that prices were going through the roof. Nobody was respectful of their legal obligation to abide by basic decency and New York state law that prohibits them from excessive price increases at a moment of dislocation such as a hurricane such as Katrina. And so it was very, very disturbing what we saw."

    Mitchell: "You are suing several gas stations in the state of New York right now. And in your mind, how did they break the law?"

    Spitzer: "They broke the law by increasing the price inordinately and outrageously compared to what they had to pay for it. In other words, people will say, 'Well, don't they pay more?' Yes, they paid more, but they doubled or tripled their profit margin at a time when there was a dislocation in the market from a hurricane. That was illegal and wrong."

    Mitchell: "As consumers, of course, most of us have to buy gasoline. What would you advise us to do. What can we do to make this better?"

    Spitzer: "Any consumer should comparison shop. The reality is you can go to four or five different gas stations, one of them will have a lower price. And if you go to that station with a lower price over time, that will help drive the price down. But realistically, as individual consumers, we cannot affect the global market or even the local market. We are the pawns in this battle."

    Mitchell: "We're stuck."

    Spitzer: "We are stuck."

    Mitchell: "New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, thanks for joining us."

    Spitzer: "Thank you very much."

    NBC Nightly News. Brian Williams led:


    "Good evening. While a nation of drivers and consumers does a slow burn over yet another sudden spike in the price of gas and with advocates for a greener America seeing red over what they see as a quickly degrading environment, today President Bush took on the topic of energy to mixed reviews. Specifically, his plans to divert oil from the nation's strategic oil reserve. The President wants to suspend some environmental rules on what kind of gas can be burned in cars during the summer. He has the government looking for price gouging and the President wants Congress to take away tax breaks from oil companies, some of which he just signed into law as part of the energy bill. It is a lot of ground to cover and it's a big and urgent issue in this country and we have it covered tonight."
    After David Gregory, Williams brought aboard David Gergen, of U.S. News and Harvard University, from Boston. Gregory's second of two questions:

    "David, in the bigger picture sense, what are the chances, do you think, that we will look back on this period right now and say that in retrospect it was a period of transition for the United States from what's been called a carbon based society to one that's more green?"

    David Gergen: "Well, one hopes that's the case, Brian, but we've had these kind of transition periods before and we've unfortunately we've taken an exit, an off ramp and never kept going. I was back in the White House in the early 1970s writing speeches about energy independence. We've been talking about this for over twenty years without succeeding. It's like school reform without true comprehensive reform. In this case, the coming together of a terrorism threat, the high prices of oil, and the looming sense that climate change really could be irreversible and extraordinarily dangerous, maybe this is the time when we'll break through and have a real political break through. But it's too early to say."

    ABC's World News Tonight. Following Martha Raddatz on Bush's proposals, anchor Elizabeth Vargas set up the newscast's second story of the night on gas prices:


    "How much relief the President's proposals may eventually give to motorists filling up at the pump remains to be seen. But the oil markets reacted immediately to his speech. Crude oil prices fell to $72.88 a barrel, down 45 cents from yesterday. ABC's Betsy Stark has a 'Reality Check.'"

    Betsy Stark: "The President's pledge to crack down on price gouging may help quiet critics who believe the market is being manipulated. But the reality is the industry is often accused and almost never found guilty."

    Robin West, PFC Energy: "I don't think anyone's going to find anything. I think it just makes everyone feel better."

    Stark: "Mr. Bush talked about getting prices down by promoting fuel efficiency, driving slower and driving less. But the reality is that will only lower prices if Americans change their behavior en masse."

    West: "They like big, comfortable, heavy, inefficient cars to drive around in. That's fine. That's their choice. But they should realize there are consequences of that choice, and the consequence is higher prices."

    Stark: "What could impact prices almost immediately is a suspension of environmental regulations. The reality here is that waiving the elaborate rules on summertime blends will likely push supplies up and prices down."

    Fadel Gheit, Oppenheimer and Company energy analyst: "I would say it will bring gasoline prices down substantially within, say, two to three weeks. I would say by 20 cents at least, or even more."

    Stark: "Over the long term, the President's proposal to develop alternative fuels, including hydrogen power and ethanol, could provide relief at the pump. And so could his plan to increase domestic supplies. But the reality is any relief from either of those proposals is probably years away."

    Gheit: "It is not going to have any impact on gasoline prices next year, or for the next five or even ten years."

    Stark: "As for Mr. Bush's plan to stop filling the strategic petroleum reserve for the summer, the reality is it may sound like a big deal, but it's really just a drop in the bucket."

    West, PFC Energy: "It's a sensible step to take. There's nothing wrong with doing this. But this isn't a silver bullet."

    Stark: "We heard that again and again today. No silver bullets, no quick fixes. Analysts say it's taken 25 years to get into this mess. And it's going to take years to get out of it. Probably not what Americans want to hear."

    Vargas: "I was just going to say that's not what they're looking to hear right now. All right. Thanks, Betsy."

    Montana Lyons reminds me of a radical lefist who lived next door to me, always ranting about "Bush" and "repulicans." He finally shot himself in the mouth with a shotgun.

    I guess that I can empathize with him. Living next to an obsessed immature loon would drive anyone mad!

    yes Nathan! Very reasoned, and well thought-out position. if only others could think as reasonibly and rationally as you. Unfortunately, many foaming-at-the-mouth leftists are obsessed with practicing the "politics of fear," on the environment.

Really sad, actually. must be why people like Montana Lyons are so unhappy with themselves: They have to go around inventing "conspiracies" like "Laura Bush is a a Murderer!" HA!

    Too danm funny!

    And if you ANYTHING about environmental research (which you OBVIOUSLY don't), you would know there is typically a several year time gap in information (typically between 5-7 years before all world wide data is collected). So the LATEST information we have is from the mid to late 1990s. You really ARE showing your IGNORANCE of scientific research. tsk...tsk..

    ha!

    So you are IGNORANTLY asking for something "in this century" (the 2000s) that scientists don't even HAVE yet.

    But the DATA (from as recently as 1997) confirms MY position that volcanoes put out more global emissions than man, period.

    Maybe YOU should have played MORE chess. I would have perhaps kept you from PLAGIARIZING the work of others!

    HA!

    this immature little boy that reminds me so much of one of my chess players that gets so excited when I help advise him on the game and he checkmates me. I then let him feel better when he brags to everyone at school.

    chess is great for the self esteem of students with learning disabilities. It helps them focus and actually behave better. You should take up chess Karl. You seem to suffer from many insecurities and issues. Were you abused in your recent childhood? I am curious why you have this obsession with me? Have you thought about getting help and medication?

    Most of the conservatives I know do care about conservation and the environment. At the same time, they support energy proposals like drilling in ANWR because the benefits seemed to outweigh the marginal environmental effects.

    As long as Al Gore is the face of "environmentalism" and as long as environmentalists come across as categorically anti-business, the movement is not going to attract many conservatives.

    That's all I'm saying too. It's a mystery to me why so many conservatives are hostile to environmentalism, I think it is part of their overall mistrust of science

    the white house is sleeping with the major oil companies, the family has been tied to oil for decades. environmentalism and global warming is a threat to their livelihood . They know that there are much cleaner alternatives that could eventually put the oil companies out of business, but as long as they can charge for energy they have us by the cajones. Bush gave a huge tax break to oil companies and now he acts like hes on the side of the consumer!

    futbol: That is why the left wants "population control" (translation: abortion as a means of sex selection and population control).

    Because, in the end, they DON'T value human life very much and believe human beings shouldn't even BE on the earth and have less of a right to exist than a Dolphin.

    Just look at the loon University of Texas professor who recently said that the Earth would benefit if 3/4 of all humans would just DIE right away. Boy! Hitler would have LOVED this kooky leftist!

    These people really have skewed priorities.

    burning a lot of SUVs causes way more pollution than letting all of those SUVs run their life...

    "Chlorine from natural sources is soluble, and so it gets rained out of the lower atmosphere," the journal Science explained (6/11/93). "CFCs, in contrast, are insoluble and inert and thus make it to the stratosphere to release their chlorine." Science also noted that chlorine found in the stratosphere-- where it can eat away at Earth's protective ozone layer--is always found with other byproducts of CFCs, and not with the byproducts of natural chlorine sources. "Ozone depletion is real, as certain as Neil Armstrong's landing on the moon," Dr. Sherwood Rowland, an atmospheric chemist at the University of California at Irvine, told Extra!. "Natural causes of ozone depletion are not significant."

    why should we trust the same crowd that lied to us about over population, get it?

    and balboa it is not about hypocrites?

    i mean if the environment was such a big deal and it is obvious that you, zapata and others voted for John Kerry, why would you vote for a hypocrite when it comes to the environment?

    remeber Kerry while in Detroit owned SUVs, but when he went to another state he didn't own SUVs...

    or how about those environmentalist that care so much about the environment that they burn car lots full of SUVs and Hummers.....

    tell me which one would produce more pollution, burning a lot full of SUVs, you know burning all the plastic parts, tires, etc, or letting the SUV run its life course?
