If you love Kant, you’ll love No Impact Man, and make a donation to help him out, please

When there’s a plea for help in the name of Kant’s “Formula of Universal Law”, will you answer it in the name of Kant’s “Formula of Universal Law”? I should hope that you would. Colin Beavan entered his No Impact Man project as a Fifth Avenue living (only one bedroom though), published author, his wife a senior writer for Business …

Sigh, I Remember When Google Was a Baby

Juli Kearns Uncategorized 2 Comments

It’s said that Google now wants to run my life. Google, the world’s biggest search engine, is setting out to create the most comprehensive database of personal information ever assembled, one with the ability to tell people how to run their lives. In a mission statement that raises the spectre of an internet Big Brother to rival Orwellian visions of …

Damn elitism

Juli Kearns Uncategorized 4 Comments

One thing I get tired of with Democrat/Progressive blogs is, for instance, not being satisfied to jump up and down about Wingnut ideology (which is all that’s needed) but stooping to go, “Nyah, nyah! Look, stupid can’t even spell!” It’s elitist and wrong and unnecessary. I suppose it galls me as much as it does as I’ve worked with individuals …

One thing has nothing to do with the other

Today people are hearting No Impact Man for baking bread. With natural gas. With an electric kick-start natural gas oven. (When he discovered that the oven needed that electric kick-start he had to cut that circuit breaker back on.) No Impact Man. Remember, the man who strains to make ZERO IMPACT and is letting us know all about it via …

My Bucket of Dust and Shame

Juli Kearns Uncategorized 5 Comments

Here it is, me and my bucket of dust and shame (see previous post on No Impact Man not responding to my suggestion he pay his personal assistant and compensate them for their electrical and DSL investment in his project) and poor humiliated H.o.p. attempting to solace and rescue me from my pitiful estate. P.S. The belt is one that …

In which I continue to make no friends with people who love people who love the earth, though I would be nowhere without it myself and am totally indebted

I’ve posted a couple of times on some beefs I have with No Impact Man. It may seem like more than that but in reality I’ve only posted three times, which is changing today to four times. When No Impact Man advertised that he was looking for a volunteer assistant to do computer and phone duty at their own location, …

"Buying The War"

Well, we missed Bill Moyers’ “Buying the War” on television last night, so am happy to find that I can watch it online, which is what I’m now getting ready to do. P.S. Watched. It’s nice to have Bill Moyers back.

Somehow I never pictured Hypatia like this…

I’m so tired I can hardly focus but I’ve had this sitting on my computer for a couple days and it’s time to clear the desk. First confounded then allured by pre-Raphaelite art… …I have just wasted some time trying to read Charles Kingsley’s Hypatia, upon which this painting of the pagan, Greek philosopher, by Charles Williams Mitchell, is said …

The art of debate is all about finding the reflexive AGH! button first, and for No Impact Man it's all about Diced Cat Koan

All right, I now officially (in my bemused world) take up the role of No Impact Man’s nemesis, at least for today, or this morning, because everyone needs a lazy nemesis for balance, a lazy nemesis who doesn’t even bother to post comments on your blog because the last thing they want to do is do a non-debate with a …

No Impact Man, please consider paying your personal secretary whose electricity you'll be using for your No Impact benefit

I posted once on No Impact Man then didn’t post again because…well, he makes me uneasy for some reason. He’s certainly attracted a lot of attention…and he makes me uneasy. The way he’s conducting his experiment and publishing a book and doing a movie makes me uneasy. He does what he can to not sound sanctimonious while sounding religiously committed …
