Re: Blue "ripple"

UPDATE: More counting completed, more races called.

And e...

In 2018 the Dems lost a net number of seats in the Senate and re-gained ...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Rebirth is very logical and rational -- if you start with a premise that the world, the cosmos is at least in the final analysis -- just and balanced. I realize that is a tall order, beginning with that premise as many people believe it's all just chaos and random chance; but if you believe otherwi...

Re: Blue "ripple"

Some victories for the Dems, especially in some states like Nevada where the governor, lt. governor and many other races all flipped from GOP to Dems, but overall the political landscape in the U.S. is still heavily controlled by Republicans. Consider the following major categories and which party h...

The first openly gay person elected governor of a U.S. state in Colorado. https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/06/politics/jared-polis-colorado-gay-governor/index.html Counting still going on as I write this, however, overall it appears it is not going to be a Blue wave, nor a Red wave; perhaps a Blue "rippl...

Re: Best winter home for retired Buddhists?

If you're American, San Diego would be my choice. No visas, immigration to do.

Daytime high temperatures around 65 to 78 for 98% of the year. (22 Celsius)

Best beaches, walking, biking trails, and at least 63 Dharma centers:

Re: Shooting in a Florida Yoga Studio

I've had the tv news on for about an hour or more and no report of this. I heard about this here at DW.
