Greetings from the Western Empire

Postby FlyingCow » Sun Aug 09, 2009 7:27 pm

My name is Flying Cow, and George Bush has ruined my life.

I had a successful business and it went down the tubes because of the Bushism, as I like to call it, depression that this evil man has created. Now all I have is my hat that says "Cheney - Satan 08" and my beaten up Jeep.

I am a citizen of the American Empire that is crumbling. Buddhism has helped me cope a little, but I still need to get another business going again or a good job so I can get back on my feet. My business has crashed, but I still have a little of my sanity.

Your forum looks very fine.

Hi FlyingOx

Thanks for writing an intro and I am sorry that your business went bust.
I wish you all the very best with a new business venture or employment. and be sure to utilise this forum for support and companionship on the path.

Hi & Welcome


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
