This is my first video introduction for Take The Venus Project Challenge. I’ve supported The Venus Project over the last year, and so far, no one opposed has done a good job of explaining why I shouldn’t. I am challenging everyone to really study the Project to the best of their ability, before even discussing the issue. My goal is, at the very least, to raise everyones understanding of *exactly* what The Venus Project is, why we so strongly believe its needed, and how it can possibly be done. Until then, we cannot have productive conversations, as they will get sidetracked with elementary questions, misinformation, and disputes over facts that have already been established, which is a complete a waste of time. For more information please visit My Channel, and these websites: www.thevenusproject.com www.zeitgeistmovie.com www.thezeitgeistmovement.com Friendly Reminder: If we want people to listen to our ideas, acknowledge the facts, and respect our differences of opinion, we need to grant others that same courtesy. It also helps to be a credible source, so do as much research as you possibly can. I’m not perfect; if I make an error, correct me. If you talk about a global economy, with no understanding of exactly how that is to be implemented, no one can take you seriously. By the same token, if you’re against The Venus Project because its supposedly named after the planet Venus and suggests a New World Order, then no one will heed your warning either, because it’s …

Me trying to run through my walled in town as fast as possible without being too boring while listening to Signal Hill. The texture pack is a customized version of JohnSmith and is 32×32. Yes I used toomanyitems to build the town because I didn’t want to destroy the landscape gathering resources and it is just a waste of time for something on this large a scale.

A BEAUTIFUL DOG NEARLY KILLED BY NEW-AGERS! BEFORE and AFTER – Jeffrey Loy : www.FriendToAnimals.com
A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE DOG SAVED from the perils of New Age dog training and drug therapy. Here we have Betsy with the love-of-her-life, “Lola Bell”, a four month old Chihuahua. This poor little dog was biting Betsy more and more and being handled less and less as a direct result of the new age puppy training from a highly touted dog training school. The director of the school then decided that drug therapy from a PhD. behaviorist would be the next prudent action, but the behavior deteriorated and the side effects were worse yet. Never forget that clear thinking scientific guidelines say that all solutions must be COMPLETE, PERMANENT and QUICK, otherwise all that you’re left with is a cruel waste of time, money and resources. Betsy had already been financially drained and so asked me to solve as many problems as possible in ONE (1) visit. I don’t solve problems, BUT MY CLIENTS DO!!! Betsy was a trooper and gave it her all and here are the rudimentary results from that visit. Betsy said, “I learned and accomplished more in moments of honest science than in all the endless months of following the pop psychologists.” All that remains for Betsy to do is to persevere. Just keep on truckin’, Betsy! , – Jeffrey Loy : www.FriendToAnimals.com

Why is everyone still so determined to save the panda bears if China no longer has proper space for them?
Question by Science is my religion: Why is everyone still so determined to save the panda bears if China no longer has proper space for them?
China and the USA spend millions of dollars annually to try to increase population statistics on the giant panda, because there are only an estimated thousand living in the wild and another 600 or so living in captivity. These governments have been spending millions annually since the 50s, when their population dropped due to the increased population of the Chinese people. Panda bears have a slow gestation period, and after birth the mother panda must nurse the baby for at least 1 year. Some mother pandas have even abandoned their offspring instead of caring for their newborn from birth, resulting in a complete waste of money and time on hopes for this panda to help increase their depleting population. The various types of bamboo, along with the quantities of bamboo pandas need to survive in the wild are no longer plentiful in China due to their people’s overpopulation. Scientists such as Jared Diamond have stepped up to state what a waste of time and money these efforts are becoming. China is pretty much a wasteland right now with so much pollution and overpopulation that it would almost be cruel to release pandas back into the wild after living in zoos. Even the wildlife federation (WWF) agreed there isn’t enough room in China for a population of panda bears large enough to exist in China to remove them from the endangered species list. So, why are millions of dollars spent annually by China and the USA to increase the population of an animal that we don’t even have the room and resources available to keep alive if & when the population does ever increase?
Please do some research into China’s pollution problem. It may be the biggest country, but it is also highest in toxic pollution as well. Have you not seen the images of chinese people wearing face masks just so they can breath the air with a little less pollution entering their lungs? Even other countries have confronted China on their pollution problem, since their pollution becomes our pollution. Money for panda bears take away from other species also indangered but not as “cute & cuddly” as the giant panda. I’m well aware of the definition of extinction. I’ve never seen a woolley mammoth, saber toothed tiger or black wolf but I’m not losing sleep over it. Ever think that maybe the planet has it’s own ways of natural selection? Perhaps the panda’s time and purpose of this planet is about to end…and humans are standing in the way of nature doing what is best for this planet?
Answer by nekospiritfire
You are way over concerned with issues that are exaggerated by your mind.
1.) Millions of Dollars is almost nothing in the grand scheme of things, it only seems large to an individual. An example of something to be more concerned with is the F-22′s we contracted be built cost 740 million a piece to put through production considering even our military would rather spend money on anything more useful, (chosen due to political vote mongering, not actual technical usefulness) that’s nearly a billion per individual weapon that we don’t have any true use for.
2.) China is F***ING HUGE, it is not a barren wasteland by any stretch of the imagination. They badly polluted around population centers due to their recent industrial revolution, too young to be properly controlled, but it is nowhere killing all the usable habitat in china.
3.) Know the implications of extinct, it means the animal is gone forever it will never be seen by anyone ever again. You can talk to your kids and they’ll see it just like we see the dinosaurs or tasmanian wolf (to pick something more recent) it is just gone.
But lastly, despite the costs in rearing panda’s, and the fact that they will likely go extinct in the wild due to lack of timely enforced preventative measured, they still rake in more cash by drawing tourists and international attention by keeping them alive. That and by making an effort it is possible to at least prolong their wild existance, which is a far more worthy cause than war, yachts, cars and other common million/billion dollar endeavors.
Sorry to sound like a rant, it’s just that extinction is a terrible thing, especially to such a unique species.
*additional edit* You gain more by choosing a species that requires large habitat area and is generally appealing to the public. The reason for this is the public is more willing to donate to panda’s than those other “less cudly animals” but the byproduct of helping panda’s is saving huge amounts of acreage from development, perhaps saving other indigenous species from habitat loss.
This is common practice, and the majority of the pay does not come from any national government so it’s not coming out of YOUR wallet anyway.
The same deal happened with the california spotted owl people say “is it really worth it to save this one species of owl” Maybe, maybe not, but because it drew attention it saved a huge amount of the remaining california forest.

wouldnt it be better for the u.s. to be isolationist? Is Ron Paul for that? Is Hillary Clinton for that?
Question by firstname.lastname@example.org: wouldnt it be better for the u.s. to be isolationist? Is Ron Paul for that? Is Hillary Clinton for that?
Vietnam: napalm and agent orange, birth defects still occurring from this 40 years later. Iraq, depleted uranium, causing cancer in children and american military personnel. why is the u.s. fighting what was traditionally a french and russian war? consider the wasted resources and how they could be used here within the country where currently 37% of the population is born out of wedlock. Would it not be better to be more isolationistic, and spend the money on the public good inside of our own society?
Answer by oc_boomer
Ron Paul and Hillary Clinton are irrelevant candidates for the General Election. Its a waste of time to deal with any scenario.

Question by AtiaoftheJulii: Is Sarah Palin hiding behind veterans to whine about her ethics complaints?
Man, this woman has no shame.
The soon-to-be-ex-Governor has been tweeting this evening about more ethics complaints filed against her. And by tweeting, I mean whining.
But she’s found a way, she thinks, to divert attention: link the complaints to a compliment about veterans.
Here are the relevant tweets:
In violation of Ethics Act more allegations were filed today by serial complainer;gave to press be4 we could respond;ridiculous, wasteful… Some ask why not sue abusers of Ethics Act bc state wastes 1000′s hrs/millions of tax dollars to fight (and win!) frivolous charges, tho…. it costs political critics NOTHING to file/play their wasteful game;They should debate policy in political arena,not hide w/process abuse… BUT if there was a suit to end public waste of time/funds to constantly address false allegations I could see perhaps a veteran filing it… someone who’s put their life on the line protecting even opponents’ right to speak & protest, was willing to die for freedom of press but… knows it’s shameful 4 valuable time& public resources to be diverted frm needed causes to deal w/this abuse of govt accountability system… Hopefully these political critics filing this stuff (& some in press perpetuating it) appreciate the freedom to do so, protected by our vets
She always finds something to wrap herself in, doesn’t she? It’s either the flag, or her religion, or disabled children or vets. Shameless.
Here’s a tip, Palin. You want to be president? Learn to take responsibility once in a while.
Answer by bendover
Did you notice the Ethics complaints were filed by a serial complainer? Basically this person has filed these complaints 5 times with no regard to taxpayers’ money being spent. All of which have been thrown out. Maybe that’s the person who has no shame.

Question by NJ: Would it be best to have a Wiccan Teacher or read books about Wicca?
Well, I brought these 2 books about Wicca,so far, I’m starting to understanding a little bit of the history behind it but I have this doubt in my mind that I’ll never learn as much I need to learn about Wicca even tho I’ll continue reading other books including the ones I have and here are the reasons: I’m more of the visual learner(Yes, I could probably choose to go on Youtube but not exactly sure if most of the videos will give me the accurate info), Where I live, it’s more based on Christianity and is VERY rare to find an experienced Wiccan in this state. Would it be best for me to just read books? :/
Answer by Fight on the Oppression
what is the point? It is a completely waste of time. Better pick up a chemistry book and start reading that. It will be more useful for you in life

Question by <3: Can I sue the college I graduated?
Ok so I graduated from a biology degree in my country which is all payed because my father helped me. I decided to study in this college in Florida a post-bachelor degree in laboratory science. I won’t specify but it is related to medicine. The program was awful. It did not prepared me for the real world, it just helped me to pass the certification and that’s it, but I lost my first first job, and now I started my second job I began my third week and I already have problems. I was called by the Human Resources to have a talk with her and the supervisor. She is telling me that I wasn”t honest to them because in my resume it says that I learned a bunch of skills at school, but at work my performance is not the best.
That college gave me horrible training. I was suppose to have an intensive 5 month training in a laboratory but the lab workers there treated me horribly, they neglected me and did not want to train me. I talked about this with the program director and she did nothing. Then I found out that another classmate had the same problem, but she din;t knew nothing.
This program was a waste of time and money. I have 30,000 in debt for a piece of paper. All of the lab workers from my country got trained and didn’t had to go to college. The things that were taught in that pricey college could have been learned with just training.
Now I am in debt and I afraid I could lose another job. Can I sue this college? Academically I am overqualified, but my skills are not good, and the people from this labs are not very friendly to help you out, they just see you as competition.
Answer by ladystang
you can sue anybody for anything

You’re already helping yourself. Employers love to hire veterans. You are in a position to map out your life. Explore all options.

Question by Jeff S: Is a Liberal Arts Degree worth it?
I just received my associate’s degree in LA from a local community college, and I am in the process of transferring to a 4 year state university to pursue a bachelor’s in LA. A lot of my friends say liberal arts degrees are a waste of time, and makes it harder to find a job because you don’t specialize in one field. I told them that’s exactly why I like LA. It is a more diverse degree. You don’t focus on just one particular genre you learn a little bit of everything.
I’ve taken philosophy, which helps with critical thinking skills. Psych and sociology, which helps me understand societies thinking and behaviors. Three English comp classes, which helps me be a better writer, and express ideas. Public speaking, which helps me articulate and speak in front of crowds fluently. Stats and calculus, for math skills. Environmental science and chemistry. Two American history classes and western civ, to understand history and cultures. Spanish, which I’m already fluent, but it filled a core class. Computer classes, which made me fluent in Word, Power Point, and Excel. Art, which I admit won’t help me much, but I enjoyed it. Most of my electives were business related.
I’d call that a pretty well rounded education that will help prepare you for anything. It gives you many social skills that will help you succeed in the real world and gives you critical thinking and problem solving skills which bosses usually look for in an employee. My friends still tell me I’m full of crap. I’m a motivated student with a 3.75 GPA, and it pisses me off when people say LA degrees are “dummy degrees” or for people who don’t know what they want to do.
I would just like some opinions from some graduates with an LA degree. How did human resources look at it when you applied for a job? Are you happy you majored in LA? Would you go back and change it if you could? Answers and personal experiences would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.
I’ve taken a few upper level business classes. Pretty much all my electives are business. Total Quality Concepts, Marketing, Business Law, Business Ethics, Accounting I and II, Small Business Management. I don’t necessarily want a job in the white collar executive world. I prefer helping people. I’m considering focusing on Psychology for a bachelor’s and possibly masters. I just like LA for now, because I can keep my options open. I don’t want to spend years focusing on one subject, just to find out it’s not what I want to do with my life.
Thank you both, for your input.
Answer by eri
That’s great that you got a well-rounded education. But your friends are correct – while they also got a well-rounded education thanks to their general education and elective courses, they specialized in something, which means they are at least slightly more employable than you. Especially since their major required upper level courses, and you probably didn’t take many of those (since you wouldn’t be qualified to take them in most fields without majoring in the field). Hopefully you have a job in mind that doesn’t require a specific major. There are certainly a lot of choices for that, but then, there are also a lot of unemployed people.
