Zorba the Greek Dance and How it Relates to Manliness We talk a lot about gentlemanly behavior and comportment on The Art of Manliness. I think it’s a trait we can all use more of and our culture finds in short supply. Acting like gentlemen builds our self-respect, makes our interactions with others more pleasant, and brings civility back to society. But I don’t think we should pursue manners and self-discipline to the detriment of our Wild Man. But according to Bly, the Wild Man isn’t some macho dude or savage man who takes pleasure in violence. In Iron John, the Wild Man takes a young boy out into the woods away from his parents and in the process teaches the boy about being a man. Zorba the Greek Dances His Heart Out A film that perfectly captures man’s need to get in touch with his Wild Man is Zorba the Greek. Basil, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. There’s this awesome scene in the film where the difference between Basil and Zorba is highlighted perfectly. Zorba dances like a mad man and Basil watches in awe. Ask for help.

cornellintro.pdf National Debt Graph by President The best odds on the presidential election come from the betting markets and can be found here. In 1981, the supply-siders commandeered the Reagan Presidency and employed their Voodoo economics, as Bush senior had called it in 1980. He was saying that tax cuts would not increase government revenues. As you can see on the graph above (get it on your smartphone app info), the Voodoo failed just as Bush predicted, and the supply-siders turned a 32-year winning streak into a debt disaster that continues to this day. What's causing today's huge deficits? Bush senior fought against supply-side debt, so the Republicans didn't support him and he lost to Clinton, who put an end to supply-side economics. What about Obama? Recessions cut tax revenues—in this case, dramatically. The green line shows what would have happened to the national debt if Reagan and the Bushes had balanced their budgets as Reagan claimed he would. The Election. Thanks for all the "Likes" and "Shares" — a real help.

5 Differences Between Hemp and Marijuana Hemp and marijuana are two popular names for the cannabis plant. The word cannabis often brings to mind images of a burning joint or a bong filling up with white smoke. Most of the time, the term wouldn’t be equated with plant-based plastics, durable paper or military grade fabric. But in reality, cannabis has just as much to do with these industrial hemp products as it does with the recreational drug better known as marijuana or pot. This begs the question — how is hemp different from marijuana? 1. A 19th century illustration of Cannabis sativa (Photo: Wikimedia Commons) Cannabis is believed to be one of the oldest domesticated crops. Tall, sturdy plants were grown by early civilizations to make a variety of foods, oils and textiles, such as rope and fabrics.

Bacteria Killing WINGS -- Mind Blow #60 JANINE TURNER: Science about our neocortex validates our Founding Fathers' vision What do our nation’s Founders and monkeys have in common? An innate understanding about the value of community, small communities. Our Founders knew that people best governed themselves when they were in small groups. The people within these groups knew best what they needed, knew best how to make it happen and knew best how to take care of one another. A relatively new anthropological theory has revealed that the magic number for efficient communities is 150. How do monkeys fit into this? The Dunbar Number legitimizes with scientific theory what our ancestors already knew. Ever wonder why you feel so powerless regarding your influence over your supposed self-governing republic? This is one of the reasons why the majority of Americans have lost their feeling of belonging, independence, vigor and empowerment. The answer for restored liberty and self-reliance lies in the Dunbar Number.
