Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

With so many Canadians, Europeans and Australians with such strong opinions about our elections here in States, I don't understand why we haven't already just annexed them all by now. The inhabitants of these nations should be paying taxes to us, apparently.

Show up with the military and flex your balls a bit. That really isn't the Buddhist way of dealing with people. Compassionate war.

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Well oddly enough Im like 3rd and 6th Generation Canadian but up till about 10 years ago did not know we are living in a Constitutional Monarchy . How is that even possible? Every Canadian house I've been in has the Queen on the wall (but okay, I've actually only been in a few Canadian homes). Kirt...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

I believe if there is a draw, then the appointment is tentatively permitted? Whoever is appointed will have a cloud hanging over them, and the basis for parties to start denying the constitutionality of the court and its decisions. I think anything short of Senate advice and consent lays the ground...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

The social issues are really just sideshows. Whoever wins, were either getting four years of tariff wars or four years of constant litigation. And if there's one thing Wall Street hates, it's instability. We'll need a nice new shiny war to reboot the system. Of course, we both know that social issu...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Naw, I predict it'll be a few grossly incompetent but dangerous idiots, and people like you who mostly just try to be vaguely menacing online behind a shield of anonymity. It'd take a bit more for them to actually organize themselves. Queequeg know exactly who I am. The problems is that you all see...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Except that a few Trump supporters have actually done stuff like this, tried to blow up Muslims, etc. Don't bullshit me man, I know some people personally who are already talking like they "might need to shoot all the liberals" if Hillary wins. Do I think they are serious? No, not really, I think m...

it's already underway. http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/02/us/mississippi-black-church-vandalized-vote-trump/ If that isn't just a bunch of puffed-up, propagandistic spin, then why haven't they flailed all of the educated liberals and academics yet?

Re: Belief in Kannon (Documentary)

I like this line from the same chapter: If a person, whether guilty or not, who has been put in stocks or bound with chains calls out the name of Guanshiyin Bodhisattva, his fetters will break apart and he will immediately be freed. It isn't included in Burton Watson's translation used by the SGI. ...
