Some things are easy to mock, such as Al Gore Pope Gorus IV of the Holy Church of Global Warming selling his Current TV for hundreds of millions of oil dollars. But some other things are so bizarre its difficult to mock them because they come across as mockery already. Such is the case with the Capitol Wellness Expo happening on Capitol Hill this week.
The master of ceremonies for the event is a woman named Judy Kosovich, an attorney who, among other things, has written of the need for people to reconnect with the Earth. OK, thats not so weird, right? Well, maybe not conceptually, but when you read what shes written it gets weirder.
In a piece entitled, Time to Go Barefoot Outdoors, Kosovich wrote, Now that the weather is getting warmer, you might want to consider walking on the earth barefoot. Why? Because the earth has an abundance of electrons that will neutralize the excess positive charge you are probably carrying around. Um
She continues, The process of connecting with the earth is called "grounding" or "earthing." The most natural way to get grounded is to take your shoes and socks off and stand on soil, sand, or concrete barefoot. Yeah.
And thats just the tip of the crazy iceberg. (Check out the whole agenda here.) The only thing missing is a drum circle, though who knows if that warrants mention on the schedule?
But, as is often the case in Washington, D.C., theres more to this than meets the eye.
The event is sponsored by the Orwellian-sounding Citizens for Health which is chaired by James S. Turner, a lawyer with the D.C. firm Swankin & Turner. Turner, it turns out, is the sugar daddy of Citizens for Health in more ways than one.

I guess the Amish are the most well grounded people in America.
I believe so too.
...while holding this bare 110v wire and chanting Ohm's Law.
A bunch of wussies that will only go barefoot in “warm weather”.
That being said, I’m going to try some of this “earthing” or “grounding” this morning. Shall I shovel the 5 inches of snow off the ground to get direct contact, or not?
and this would be the one time I would be in before the sot :)
They have fed us the global warming scam which most ate up willingly so they now throw out magic, sorcery, witchcraft and hippie sh## to eat. More money in the pocket of the bloated one
I’d guess that ice might make a fairly good conductor...
Barefoot on concrete is *grounding*?
I am too old. I remember when all concrete was to be avoided because it interfered w/contact w/the soil.
I suppose when you are writing for an urban audience, you have to make adjustments.
More crony captialism. The web is bringing out issues like a blue dress, hookers in the DR and a senator, gun facts and myths that is all good. The problem is that when Newt took over folks thought solving big government and it’s excess was on the way, but Newt,Denny Hastert, Tom Delay etc. etc. just picked new big government crony players. The TV show was called “Who Do You Trust.” now the “voters” say nobody and they pick the warm fuzzy vs. the serious solutions.
“That being said, Im going to try some of this earthing or grounding this morning. Shall I shovel the 5 inches of snow off the ground to get direct contact, or not?”
Don’t be a Wuss! Stand on the snow until it melts and you get extra points. Let us know how that works out and how many toes they managed to save. :)
