Been working on the most amazing project.  Wouldn't it be cool if this patent changed the world?  I am sincerely excited. But I can't tell any body until it is filed. Soon.

"Finally getting my mojo back baby!"  Working on reconnecting with all of those who I haven't heard from or was too much in the blue funk to connect with this past year.  Thanks for your friendships, my peeps.

Corporations want what is best for themselves without consideration for what is best for individuals. This is their right to have such a desire, but I am an individualist humanist. If you like me think that the internet is a common resource that should remain for the benefit of individuals please consider this issue for yourself and please consider signing this petition. - Keith

What if the Democratic media worked like FOX news?:

"I've heard some people are wondering whether Governor Rick Perry is a fire bug. Surely is it is not possible he started the fires in Texas so that he would have a reason to look heroic. Although he clearly loves the role of crisis commander in chief. In fact, wasn't he out of the Texas Governor's mansion when someone throw a fire bomb at its front door. How do we know he didn't do it himself or have someone do it so that he could make the opposition look like crazy nuts."

Since Perry took office in 2001, four hurricanes have made direct landfall in Texas. Another, Rita, came by way of Louisiana and caused more than $11 billion in damage. And then there was Katrina, which plowed into New Orleans in August 2005 and pushed hundreds of thousands of evacuees into the arms of Texas. And now a drought of Biblical proportions is in full swing here in Texas and 50 wild fires are raging across the state burning down thousands of houses. I'm not sure the Country can afford to have him the White House.

I can't remember the name of the organization, but there is a conservative think tank which uses cognitive linguistics methods to statistically test the impact of various kind of framing and labels on public opinion. They develop a set of frames to serve as talking points, and these are distributed as a package to all party leadership, Republican members of congress, talking heads, any Republican who's words could end up in the mass media.

If you watch FOX News and read conservative publications, you'll notice that everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, starts spreading the same new frames almost instantly. It's not water-cooler talk. It's orchestrated.

Maybe after the economy tanks because our debt rating is downgraded we can have a serious (r)"evolution" of our political system in this country. I would like to see this two party deadlock be permanently changed (by citizen mandated constitutional amendment if necessary).

Let's have two-term term limits, get rid of PACs completely, severely limit campaign spending, move to proportional representation in at least one of the houses and implement automatic run offs for our president/vp. That way we can have a little more real competition for ideas and choice in who we vote for.

Why are you doing so much work to make the client remember their pain.  Of course she still has all the emotions and pain; you just spent 2 mins getting her to practice the pain.  It is not useful to rehearse the pain.  Let it go when it comes up, but don't rehearse it just so you can let it go.  If it is not a problem don't fix it.  Your skills are good, but I am concerned about your ethics.

 He asks did you have back pain when you came up?  She answers No.  He then reasks do you have pain now.  When you are sitting in the front of a room as a demo subject the presenter has an undue amount of influence by virtue of his positional power.  The implication of this type of questioning is to hypnotically suggest that she should have some pain (so that he can do this demo).   Then he reinvokes the pain by asking her to go back and remember when it was "really strong"  She says Yes.  He then reinforces this by asking ostensibly the audience, "Do you believe her? And then makes the metacomment, " Oh Yeah" while nodding in affirmation.  This is all a way of rehearsing the client through the pain, which moments ago she said "No, it is so much better now."  But he didn't leave that.  Instead he brought it back so that he could get rid of it again. 

You can easily deal with problems without going to their origination point if you know how to do that.  It is a myth that problems can only be solved by accessing the memory where they began. 

I agree that many people do dissociate and try to bury their suffering and pain as a coping mechanism.  And that this doesn't usually work very well, the pain keeps returning until it is reintegrated one way or another.  But the idea that the fact that she remembers somehow means that it wasn't better is not right.  Healing and reintegration don't create amnesia.  Especially if you do as he has done with this client and re-access the old memories.  This is tantamount to reinstalling the painful experience.  Very easy to do if you don't know what you are doing.  I see therapists make this mistake all the time.  But I am pretty sure that he knows what he was doing and did it intentionally for the sake of the demo. 

This is why I don't support his ethics. Good that you do though.

+Meri Walker I so much enjoy your mind. Thanks for challenging me. Not many people do that - proving your point about the desire for simplistic answers.

Three surgeons are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on, the first surgeon said, "Electricians are the best, everything inside is color coded." the second surgeon says, "No, I think librarians are, everything inside them is in alphabetical order" the third surgeon shut them up when he said: "You're all wrong, politicians are the easiest to operate on, there's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, and no spine, plus the head and the ass are interchangeable!

I heard a quip the other day that was so good I was surprised I'd never heard it before:

"I'm sure by now you all know the origin of the word 'politician.' For those who haven't, it from the Latin: 'poly' meaning many, and 'tics' meaning blood-sucking parasites."

Amazing food and service. Definitely a destination restaurant worth the trip. Which is good because they are in the shopping center where Walmart is of all places. The food is Better than Pappadeaux. The seafood was fresh and the steak I had last time was really flavorful. I also love going there for lunch as their poorboys are the best in town. Ask for Remoulade on the french rolls. Also, they have the best bread pudding this side of New Orleans. I highly recommend. Check them out. Call for a reservation on weekend evenings.
