Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Jeez. If we get a civil war going, its going to be fugly. It will be domestic terrorism because that crowd lacks the capacity for a head to head fight. At some point, they are going to see that taking over national parks or declaring independent states gets nowhere. They can't take and hold territo...

alt-right :quoteunquote: jingoism :quoteunquote: are antithetical to Mahayana. Not true. Oh, absolutely. White nationalism, racism, and xenophobia have no place in Mahāyāna.

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Because your brand of politics relies on a combination of nostalgia for an America that was never was, and demonization of all the groups you think led to it's downfall (uppity women, BLM people, gays who dare to expect equality under the law, whatever)...freaking obvious why most people of your mi...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

I'm curious about your background Cicada. Where do such views still survive? My background? Wild, outlaw cracker spawn (we may have relation to both the infamous James Earl Ray and musician Stevie Ray Vaughan,) and Tejano Hispanics. (The annals of my mother's people are recorded pictorially in a co...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Even though many are fed up, there will be no up rising, no revolution. The reason being while there is plenty of food, huge variety from organic to junk food, alcohol readily available and often cheap enough. Then add entertainment, distraction...porn, face book, snap chat, TV, Netflix, I could go...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

The demographics have changed quite a bit and some states are now 'majority-minority' meaning that all the minority demographic groups added together are higher in numbers than the whites, which means you cannot win potus by appealing only to whites, ignoring issues effecting minorities.

Re: Technology prompted racial self-identification

It's actually a very specific subset demographic of African Americans, who are college educated, and supporters who see the concerns raised by that group as symbolic of their own, Nominally Left and Liberal White supporters, that is, who see the concerns being raised by such groups as congruent wit...

Re: Technology prompted racial self-identification

I don't know of anywhere other than DW (and only then it's pretty part time) where people even use emojis in a non-ironic manner. Ironically, you wrote this unironically. Why?
