Re: Why the Government Shouldn't Break WhatsApp

Snowden released documents on the back doors built into the Android, Apple and Windows kernel. Quite simply all electronic communications are monitored all the time. How do people keep pretending that didn't happen?

Re: Chomsky's Requiem for the American Dream - free ebook today

He's been America's conscience for a long time. Ha! He's almost unknown except among intellectual types. So he is unknown to the ignorant... I've heard of him. I even have the GUARDIN' GNOME achievement. Like Bookchin when he is gone there is no replacement. http://left4dead.wikia.com/wiki/Gnome_Ch...

Re: Blue "ripple"

You did save Social Security and Medicare by the barest of margins. So great suffering was temporarily averted. But that is a very low standard.

Re: America”s Next Civil War

Sounds like Canadian wishful thinking. Canada is a very loyal vassal state. Our deep state and yours have been intimately connected since the Camp X days. I even fought in one of your utterly doomed wars knowing it was preordained to fail. When you sneeze we catch a cold. Our strategic planning rev...

Re: Best winter home for retired Buddhists?

I'm looking for a base for winter. Do you think Laos or Cambodia would be good for that? Winter in Laos and Cambodia is like winter in Thailand. Also what do you think are the best temples, amulet shops, healers, etc in Thailand? I only went to Bangkok. In Bangkok the amulet market behind the unive...

Re: Best winter home for retired Buddhists?

Cambodia and Laos are even cheaper than Thailand. When I was in Thailand this year I did not find it that cheap. It's all relative to your budget. Would you prefer to live simply in Florida or like a king in Bangkok? I have a buddy in Bangkok already and he found Cambodia full of scammers when he w...

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: https://dhammawiki.com/index.php/San_Diego I'm not American and the cost o...

Re: Best winter home for retired Buddhists?

Are there things like retreat cottages near Chiang Mai? By moving overseas I can afford a little cabin for retreat up in the hills. Would that work there? Tashi delek, That is difficult to obtain. Mostly one can rent a house there. The Thais are fully prepared to receive retirement people. The most...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I am not sure it's just the USA, though....look at Brexit, and some other movements in Europe and elsewhere. In the UK we have lost our 'centre' party completely and have polarised into far left and far right parties which will make for interesting elections where many people will feel neither side...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

Parties are for chumps. Get a grassroots chunk of votes and make demands. They listen real fast when you target ridings that won by less than a thousand votes. That was my secret. Dude, you really don’t expect anyone to take your chest thumping seriously, right? Meh, politics treated me well. The d...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

You are missing that in politics no one cares what you think. "You can't do anything. You are powerless." This is all you are saying. And it's true, you are Canadian, shaking your fist in impotent rage against a system in which you have no say. There is the power to get paid. Millions if you want. ...

This is very lazy thinking. Keep trying that lesser evil strategy. That's not a con either :thumbsup: ;) The greater evil is shrugging one's shoulders in apathy.

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I don't think you understand how good cop, bad cop works. It means the cops collude to put on a show that makes you think one is good and the other is bad. But really they are tricking you and both work for the same boss. The good cop is only pretending to be your friend. This is very lazy thinking...
