* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Interesting article:

http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/10107-chris-hedges-time-to-get-crazy

Ehh, didn't really tie in, to me. It seemed like the writer already had an idea of specific issues and actions to take, and wrote the article for a like-minded... even identical-minded... readership. So, it just became a pep talk, saying, "What Would/Did Crazy Horse Do?" But the issue(s) in the writer's mind isn't/aren't exactly the same as the issue that Crazy Horse died for. So, if it's not rallying for activism specifically in the Native/White American race issue, then why even bring it up? It just becomes the vaguest, blandest, most meandering, "Never give up! Never surrender!" pep talk ever, which... is still nice to have sometimes I guess?

But I wouldn't call it interesting. I thought that article was actually very uninteresting.

I found the comparisons between the manifest destiny of the our country in past years and the manifest destiny of the corporations of today very interesting.  He actually did a very good job by being low key and rational, rather than making it a rallying cry for the occupy movement which is one of his pet things right now.  This is not aimed at those who already believe, as I do, that we already have a government by the corporations, for the corporations, and of the corporations.  This is for those who are still blinded by the advertising.
