Re: Fake News

I may be wrong, but the impression that I get is that most of the high-profile people who have left the White House still have a positive opinion of the President, at least based upon their post-WH interviews. How else could it be? It's not clear how such post-WH interviews are representative of a ...

Re: "Is there a Self?"

You're just witnessing a phenomenon, an arisen phenomenon of destruction. And that has arisen. So that's what I mean when I say before, or I say often...things are not impermanent because you see them cease. Things are impermanent because they have arisen in the first place. So their manifestation ...

According to Maggie Haberman, Ms. Hicks had been planning to leave for some time. Maggie Haberman, the New York Times reporter who broke the news of Hicks' resignation, said Hicks' last day in the White House would most likely be in the coming weeks, adding that she did not say what her next job wou...

Not that I think it is such a good idea, but ten states already allow teachers to carry concealed weapons in schools.

Re: Do you have compassion for Nikolas Cruz?

Yes. He is obviously a very, very confused young man, ignorant and suffering just like all the beings in samsara. What is the ripening of suffering? When someone is overcome, and his mind is obsessed by suffering, either he sorrows and laments, and beating his breast, he weeps and becomes distraugh...

Re: Fake News

I read a comment today, in which someone succinctly rolled together a few of the concurrent investigations (e.g. Uranium One, Russian Interference, FISA abuses, Clinton Foundation) into a brief summary. If their suggestion of what is going on is even remotely true, things are going to get very inte...

Re: Trump - One Year

In the Cakkhu Sutta (SN 25.1) the sappurisa is said to have transcended the plane of the puthujjana, cf. Atthasalini 349 as well. Just something to keep in mind when discussing people of integrity from a worldly perspective.

Re: Fake News

I thought the liberal media thoroughly debunked the Uranium One scandal. It'll be interesting to see how they spin this, or will it be more or less censored out of their news cycle?

Re: Trump - One Year

His critics are so predictable and so easy to troll. Personally I suspect talk of a military parade is laying the groundwork for wedging the Democrats further towards extreme far left... I think President Trump really does love his country, so it isn’t purely a tactical maneuver. He got the idea du...

Re: Trump - One Year

When he views the parade I'd love the President to trick himself out in khaki or camouflage, if only to scare the beejeemees out of his critics.
