Re: Two months of writing.

Society They'll burn you at the stake Laugh, scoff, attack, berate And attempt to deconstruct you If you won't go along Then, one day, their minds change A wave of energy shifts in the mass And whatever was attacked before Is the new normal I accept that you're all assholes Who think you're really ...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

Our civilization is about to end and who knows what will arise instead of it. My money's on: https://media.serious.io/4b14d93cc2a886ed/serious.gif I could be overly dramatic but I think we're in the perfect storm. With climate change, poisonous oceans, the ruination of the landscape due to neoliber...

Re: Two months of writing.

The Chupacabra Where are you, chupacabra? In my heart? In my "soul?" Where did the chupacabra come from? Where did it go? Are you sapient, hemovore? Did the goats leave you wanting more? Did they ever catch you in South Texas? Or was it just hoax-as? Will we ever know who engineered you? Where you ...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

Sure, Hillary, Trump will literally blow up the world when elected. Trump will blow up the world. Obama will enslave white people. None of these crazy things ever happens... 😔 These days it's like, "why vote?" Why didn't the Dems just cast Oprah as a candidate when Trump joined and put Michelle in ...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

"I just say whatever gets a cheer out of the crowd." He can do this so well because he has no shame. Imagine "Take life by the kitty-cat" immortalized in marble. Since he became a public figure back in the late 70s, he's been a carnival barker/used car salesman, who would do or say anything to move...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

Now things are out in the open. This is the American reality and we have the opportunity to deal with it and move forward. Yes, a good thing, I agree. It's kind of like that point in therapy where your dark side gets brought out from the shadows into the light. Powerful, scary, ugly (and beautiful)...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

To me it seems - since 2012 - the behavior and expression of thoughts became more and more aggressive. So, often I observe angry speech without real reason. It makes me wonder what is going on over there in your big country. I thought about one day and narrowed down the timeframe to the same one yo...

Karma and Concussions

What is the karmic result of beating the ever loving crap out of people depending on context? For example, I know that Kung-Fu was developed as a non-violent means of fending off government military attacks on monastic communities in ancient China. Thus, beating someone unconscious in this context w...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

What do you think might help this country/globe heal? Run around like Nichiren as depicted in that old NHK historical series shouting (according to the subtitles) "You must all change your minds!" Trying to impeach a democratically elected leader, even if a significant number of people strongly dis...

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

Unilateralism seems to me like a natural consequence of Trumptastrophe's megalomania/narcissism. Dude either doesn't give a hoot about the big picture ... or, maybe worse, doesn't see it. He's a screaming ME machine ... and having graduated from tv to political reality-showbiz his ME now encompasse...

Re: Two months of writing.

Cicadas sing on a summer's day I sit belly full beneath ancient mesquite West Texas sun beams where worlds collided Body and mind spent but sated I danced forth from potentiality Lord Buddha, I did your work I snap my fingers, cough, and depart "Again and again they will be banished" My exile a subl...
