Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

While true, your logic is also a blatant case of " whaboutism ". I hate to quote the Bible but, "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." Maybe the country that has killed 10 times as many Muslims a...

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

So the country that just spent 6 trillion dollars killing 500,000 Muslims since 9/11 is very upset that some human rights were violated. You certainly are the experts.

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

Delicious. The moralizing against Myanmar has been getting on my nerves for some time. Moralizing that started with the BRI development of infrastructure, oil pipelines and ports in Myanmar.

I feel the West is past it's prime on many levels. If I didn't have commitments here I would go to new lands.

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.

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.

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. ...
