Tea among the Ruins...

I am amused by all the bleating about dysfunction in Washington, particularly as we now have exactly what half the country wanted in the last election. We, the People, elected a divided government precisely because we didn't want anyone to get their way. We sealed the deal by electing enough Tea Party candidates to ensure gridlock. They have stated time and again that they will not settle for anything other than total victory or "death." Anyone else see a parallel between AlQuaeda and the Tea Party? A group of idealogue fundamentalists, co-opted to wage a dirty war, who then turn on their handlers and cause untold chaos and destruction on anyone that gets in their way: and I include the leader of their own party! Let me expand on this..their dogged, commitment to a fundamental ideology will bring down our economy and do untold damage to our system of government on a parallel to 9/11. And before anyone says" yes, but without the human cost." Let's check back in a year or two and count the number of veterans who have succumbed to reduced care, disaster victims who have succumbed to a reduced FEMA budget, homeless and starving who have succumbed to a vastly reduced safety net, victims of asthma and bronchial conditions who have succumbed to increased pollution ...the list of shame will go on and on...That is what the Tea Party stands for and that is who we handed the reins of power to.
cred text (see: US Constitution) in the most perverse ways to further their creed....

Black or White or Both...

A lot of people here are getting very exercised on the subject of religion and whether I have any!! I think Diane's dilemma expresses it best. She would clearly feel more comfortable if she could figure out whether I was a Christian, atheist, deist, pantheist or what!! THAT'S exactly the problem. Everyone wants Black or White. There is so much confusion in the human condition that we all want some clarity and definition- somewhere PLEASE!!! This unsettling confusion and need for identity has always led us humans toward some ( any ) kind of "tribalism." The only way we can feel secure in our fragile mortality is to "belong" to something or someone. It might be a nation, a city, a sport's club, a political party, a gang, a neighborhood, a social club or... a religion. It gives us clarity as to where we belong and the comfort that we will be surrounded by like-minded people. The problem is that that behavior robs us of the ability to identify fully with the only true club that we belong to: the human race. And that happens to be the only club that is non-exclusive. There are plenty of moslems, jews, christians, atheists, taoists, mormons who all believe in the same tenets of compassion, love, duty, and responsibility, but our need to identify and separate each other out keeps us from actually enacting these principles. The truth is that the human condition is, and will always be, confusing and confronting IF we surrender to that fact. And that's how it was meant to be. The word "religion" comes from the Latin "re-ligo" meaning "I tie back." It is how we tie ourselves back to the one-ness of the universe ( God, if you like.) However we choose to do this is up to each individual . Some have created "programs" to help the needy. These programs are called "Religions," but they owe more to political power-grabbing and exploitation than anything any of the great teachers have ever spoken about. I hope this helps those who are confused. I guess the closest to a religion that I have come, was spoken by a character on a TV sci-fi series a few years back She said that we are made up of the same molecules that make up the universe, that create the energy inside the nuclei of the stars. She explained that we are literally "star stuff", the universe made manifest- trying to figure itself out. So, be OK with the confusion and the murky differences between Black and White...that's what makes us human and divine at the same time. Good night and sleep well.

Enjoy the tea!

If, or when, the US defaults on its debts for the first time in history, I hope the Tea Party and all those misguided souls who bought their uninformed rhetoric, will take the responsibility that falls squarely on their shoulders. Their playground gesture of "taking the pledge", by definition, cast them as uncompromising and obstructionist. As a result, even their own leader of the House, unable to get them in line, is put in the shameful position of seeing this great nation sink into the depths of ignominy for the sake of personal, political hubris and the worst kind of partisan politics.

Charles Shaughnessy presents COFFEY BUZZ "The Traffic Zone!"

Charles Shaughnessy, David Shaughnessy & Lissa Coffey Present COFFEY BUZZ:  THE TRAFFIC ZONE CAR GADGETS!

Here is the latest episode of Coffey Buzz: The Traffic Zone! Click on anything you see in the video that you want to learn more about or buy, then click on the thumbnails that pop up to the right to go to the proper page on the internet! It's that easy to buy something you see you want! Didn't catch something with a click? Pause the video THEN click! Want to watch the video full screen? Choose that option from the video menu at the bottom right!




The Traffic Zone!
07-07-2011
In southern California, the Toyota Prius is a very popular car, especially among "Hollywood" types. Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio are just two of the stars who proudly drive this hybrid. In Southern California, we spend so much time on the road that it's important to have a fuel-efficient car, and the Prius gets about 45 miles to a gallon of gas, so there's not much better out there! When I first met with Charlie and David, I drove up and noticed that they each had their own Prius, so I felt an instant connection. David and I even have the same color, and the same year! We all feel strongly about the environment, and this is just one way that we can make a difference - while also saving money on gas!When we did our "Car Gadget" segment we used our own cars. David had the idea of making the opening like a Twilight Zone episode, and I think it turned out very clever! I love working with these guys, they have such a great sense of humor, and it definitely comes out in our show.


In the first part of the episode we showcase some products that help to make your commute less stressful, and more organized. In the second part, we visit a luxury car dealership, where we can dream a little bit of what life would be like in a high end vehicle. Basically, you could move right in and be quite comfortable!

Check out the show and let us know what you think. 
We love to get your comments. 


And be sure to visit the Coffey Cafe: Coffee recipes from Coffey Buzz & Lissa Coffey where we have posted two new coffee drinks - Kahvesi Coffee video and recipe! in the Coffey Cafe and Aloha Coffee video and recipe!.

Thanks for watching!

Love,
Lissa
