He would likely be skeptical of any candidate with ties to the CFR.

Where did I put my tinfoil hat?

Take care,


Good point, Barry. What would Buddha do? I think he would do his best. :D

I don't know.

Jordan, I can give my tinfoil hat if you want! I need a new one, a bigger one!

Jordan, I had to go and look up the meaning of "CFR" - and now that I know what it stands for (I think), I still don't know what it means! I could probably use that tinfoil hat.

Did the girls survive the sugar rush? Very cute photo of you and the girls - you look great in your lion suit (that is you, isn't it?)!

Uku, I'm gonna make a new tinfoil hat for my Buddha statue - very stylish! Sorry to hear that your head is growing...

Best wishes in the Dharma,


Hey Barry,

Well, I guess in a way part of me was in the lion suit. The lamb suit too!

Hear is some more fun stuff on the CFR:


As to the sugar rush, what goes up must come down!

Take care,


Hi Barry,

wow, that Buddha statue sounds very stylish!

I don't know, maybe my head is growing too but I meant that I need a bigger tinfoil hat because the one I have right now doesn't seem to help me!

Take care, Dharmabro,

Hey Barry,

There is a guy in Phoenix named Bob Larson who teaches DWJD "Do What Jesus Did!" His specialty is exocism of demons. Perhaps he could exorcise a few demons for this one.

May God help us all realize that the demon to fear is our own false sense of self.

and lastly, please vote.

Hi Paul,

I could use a good exorcism right about now - just a few small demons rattling around in my head. Just a few.

Voting already appeared! Now just waiting...

Hope you're well!
