President Obama knocked down TWO presidential firsts Sunday at the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors reception at the White House â€” and one included the Bay Areaâ€™s own cultural treasure and Kennedy Center honoree, Carlos Santana.
In his opening remarks about one of rockâ€™s seminal guitarists, Obama became the first president to make an LSD joke in the White House â€” in talking about Santanaâ€™s ground-breaking performance at Woodstock. Hereâ€™s what Obama â€” a Choom Gang veteran who was no stranger to mind-altering drugs in his youth â€” had to say about Santana, according to the official White House transcript:
â€śWhen a 22-year-old Carlos Santana took the stage at Woodstock, few people outside his hometown of San Francisco knew who he was. And the feeling was mutual. Carlos was in such a â€” shall we say â€” altered state of mind that he remembers almost nothing about the other performers. (Laughter and applause.)...

Carnal urge. Is that what it's called when you want a hamburger?

I quite believe you're right, sister. I am working towards utilising the Lester Roloff scheme of eating, which I reckon is more balanced, and a bit easier to accomplish. If you've not heard him preaching on SA, I can highly recommend it, especially his message on health. Great stuff! He's one of those preachers who is quite happy to break out in song halfway through a message, so much joy he has in the Lord, and the health to praise him with a loud voice.
John UK -- if you look at the history of the condiments, many of them were lacto fermented before Pasteur. that is they would have the acids, enzymes and probiotics that actually aid the body in breaking up the food, not high sugar, or worse high fructose corn syrup glop..... its the industrialized foods that are getting us.
a lot of vitamins are fat soluble, so without the good fats, body isn't absorbing. I would certainly hope people with questions look more deeply at these things.

Gs, just as it was extremely difficult for our blessed Lord Jesus to bring us into great blessings by his oblation, so is it also extremely difficult for us poor mortals to escape from the entrapment of commercial food enterprise.
We have been taught to sprinkle salt on our food, and then add sauces like ketchup or brown sauce. Therefore the natural taste disappears. They can then produce tasteless veggies and fruit without us noticing. Same happens with tea and coffee.
I am much helped by Baptist ministers Lester Roloff (here on SA) who was a health fanatic as well as a Christian, and it was Lester who greatly helped a former minister called George Malkmus, who eventually formed Hallelujah Acres in North Carolina. You can get some good info on their website. It takes time, but well worth the effort to at least look into it.
Btw I don't read Time Magazine and I couldn't care less who gets Man or Woman of the year. I have my own heroes but most of them are dead. Thanks for the tip 1517, it should be interesting but I won't be reading it for sure. I don't agree with a lot of things this pope has said and I even heard from other preachers that it was prophesied by another priest years ago that the 118th Pope would be the last Pope. Maybe that's why he is causing a stir with the others in his remarks he keeps making. Now, I find interesting that this Pope is the 118th pope and will give it a wait and see. ( if he is the last one before Jesus's return)
Nobody makes jokes about alcoholic intoxication anymore. I guess people would think you're talking about Republicans, and-- you can tax liquor. Hmm, I knew there was some reason why the Greedy Old Party didn't want to raise taxes.
Think about it: Many of those anti-establishment hippies, protestors, & campus Marxists from the '60s are now the Establishment, the People Who Matter. God help us; they evidently gained only age, not wisdom.
What a world apart from Matthew Henry, whose comments on Prov. 20:1 are appropriate for other forms of intoxication as well: â€śDrunkenness, which pretends to be a sociable thing, renders men unfit for society, for it makes them abusive with their tongues & outrageous in their passionsâ€ť
