After listening to a steady stream of complaining on this site, including myself, I welcome and celebrate any and all persons that stand up and vocalize their beliefs - and his apparent skepticism of the vast use of resources for meaningless conveniences - and then act upon them. If he gets but a few more people to think and prepare, then he has accomplished a great deal in my book. I'm guessing he probably has one of the larger followings on twitter...

and his apparent skepticism of the vast use of resources for meaningless conveniences 

You mean our God given resources that we have earned the use of by hard work and sacrifice? The reason we have problems now is the lazy forget all that and want everything for free. And then there's the agenda driven folks like yourself, that want to make us feel guilty.

Guilty of what? Nothing. We earned it, we use it, it's ours. MadMax is not happening.

I made no judgment on the accuracy of his predictions. I merely celebrated his willingness to speak his mind even though it might engender some skepticism.

Agenda-driven? You mean like suggesting that all resources are God-given and therefore our right to use as we see fit? [How'd that work for the residents of Easter Island?]

I have no particular agenda re: the environment, though I do believe there needs to an awareness of our personal and collective impacts.

LH, bikram yoga needs artificial heat to get the room to 100 degrees. i went to couple of sessions, it is just plain stupid. what is he talking about losing electricity when the end comes. he is a hypocrite. he won't have any heat, to do his Yoga in. these dumb yoga pushers, they have like five electric space heaters located around the room. heat up the yogis and let them fry. world comes to an end and AK can't do bikram yoga cause he ain't got no electric heat. i swear i am one hoot after a laugh.

I hope you are kidding.  AK is doing yoga now in order to get himself into the proper physical condition.  I'm sure he's well aware that, if the apocalypse happens, he won't be looking for the nearest yoga studio.  It's better to actually be in top physical shape than only wish he was.

Its clear that Ashton is one of those Bible freaks because he uses the term "end of days".  Well I will say this .. the Bible says that the meak shall inheret the Earth and if these Bible freaks think the end of days is coming, then by all means give up everything you got and hope you are chosen.

No.  My avatar is unique...until someone steals it.

I had tried yoga a few years ago and if you hit it right, I agree that the visuals can surely be a fringe benefit, although I highly doubt AK has taken up bikram yoga to check out girls' asses.

Additionally, I know several non-Jews that do yoga whom have no intention of converting to Judaism.  How does that comport with your theory?

Are you suggesting we all get bikes and rob banks as preparation for the end of days?

It is more accurate to say that the benefits of any style of yoga are completely dependent on the practitioner.  A person with the right mindset can receive as many benefits from Bikram as from any other style - except maybe Kriya.

Gigilo Ashton talked about how they lost power at their cabin and he loaded his gun and in a panic they went to the grocery store.  He is an apologist for Mugabe 2 Hussein to insure he gets movies in Hollywood.  If you bash conservatives and shill for marxism you can be a star too. 

His dowager wife is always bitching that she spent $500,000 on new t*ts, a face and ass lift plus a lot of work and still cannot get movie parts. 

BTW - those God given resources are being created each day by that reactor called the earth's core turning rocks into oil and nat gas. There is energy all over the earth and the earth is making new energy each day.  Solar will get cheaper over time too and geothermal power by the earth's core will work as well.  It already is working.

If you happen to feel guilty because of the aforementioned post, then you probably should because you are.

But that is irregardless, because the whole point of the previous poster apparently whooshed right over your incy head.

Here, let me spell it out for you, what he means it is the haphazzard, lazy, me me, I deserve something mentality that is plagued by most westerners. 

Enjoy the tipping point, because as the old saying goes, I don't have to out run the bear, I just have to outrun you, dipshit.

From Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

Usage Discussion of IRREGARDLESS:
Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead. Examples of IRREGARDLESS:
I told them that irregardless of what you read in books, they's some members of the theatrical profession that occasionally visits the place where they sleep. —Ring Lardner, The Big Town, 1921 Origin of IRREGARDLESS
probably blend of irrespective and regardless
First Known Use: circa 1912

self admission - Internally, I used to look down at the (Ir)regardless crowd.  Thank you for lightening the loathe. Or was it loath.

Loathe: (verb) To harbor a strong dislike or hatred for a thing.

"I loathe bananas!"


Loath: (adverb)[I think] To be reluctant; hesitant.

"I was loath to speak after seeing others attacked for it."
