With the greatest of trepidation, I feel we should nominate as leader of this Front, Jimmy Carter. I, of course, will insist on a full vetting of the candidate. The Jimmy Carter Foundation Habit for Humanity must come under especially close scrutiny. I will tolerate No Conflicts of Interest.

This just in, from the legal arm of The Allied Peanut Butter Liberation Front, or TAPBLF - pronounced "tabliff" (meant to mimic the sound of someone trying to talk with a mouthful of PB): Through tireless scrutiny by our comrades, a possible loop-hole to 'the prohibition' has emerged, per the "nutter-butter-peanut-butter-sandwich-cookie" product. Through a congressional oversight in House Bill PBJ527, these were categorized as "housing insulation", with an R-value of 14. With the caveat that their manufacture is no longer regulated, these can also be eaten, containing nearly ten percent of actual peanut butter.

Alex, Could you ask your bro, please? Or Doug, kindly see what John Hagelin thinks? Also, would *jam* act as kind of a yagya, a counterweight of sorts, if Skippy continues to be ingested? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <j_alexander_stanley@...> wrote : Who knows? However, that was one of those "Maharishi says..." pronouncements floating around FF in my early days here. Here's what MAPI has to say about peanuts (it's consistent with what MMY allegedly said): "Peanuts are not recommended in ayurveda. Peanuts are not really nuts; they are legumes. Peanuts are difficult to digest and can make one feel sluggish and lethargic in body and mind. Ayurvedically, it is better to use either cashew or almond butter for sandwiches." ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Did Maharishi really say that eating peanuts dulls the mind? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@... mailto:dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Aggregating Questions..

PS I would be grateful if the topic of transparency could be addressed before any other questions are entertained. # Is it the central purpose of [Global Country of World Peace [GCWP] to simply act as one of a myriad of movement tax shelters for the "non-profit" world of the wealthy? # Someone else asks: Why is the US Brahmasthan being ignored by admin? # Who currently owns the Brahmasthan of America?

Yifuxero writes: I'm skeptical of the rationale and underlying assumptions.. Would one of the conclusions be "Transcending will make you happy and TM is the preferred method of transcending". OK fine...let's see some evidence. Likewise, with the other claims. Will "transcending" offset bad karma. Will it make people richer?. How about curing diseases? Make some real substantial claims followed by some good uncooked data; with perhaps a few citations of peer reviewed research by somebody outside of the TMO or MUM. If the claims are true, people in vast numbers should be flocking to a practice that has specified benefits. Will "transcending" help one in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse? Will it extend one's lifespan? (doesn't look like it in view of the stats coming from FF) Send Your Q's.. I will aggregate Q’s from FFL and forward them on to the panel for the October 28th Meeting. Respond to this post/thread. Or, Anyone reading FFL but unable to post to FairfieldLife who have questions they would like asked Can send them to: fairfieldlife-ow...@yahoogroups.com mailto:fairfieldlife-ow...@yahoogroups.com I can include those too of the FFL lurkers, -JaiGuruYou
