DNS, not sure what you mean about the "21 Trillion dollars in debt".

Re: Another war in the Middle East?

There is airspace, of course. If the drone was not over Iran, it was within the rules. And the only reason to violate the rules would be to provoke a war--which, even by the mindless standards of Trump, would be foolish. It's the fringe elements of Iran testing the limits of what they can do, and se...

Re: It's Alan

Biden is starting to show his age. With Schiff/Hoelzle you get a team that can work together, and each of us has strong points. For instance, Adam is a pencil-necked geek, and I am not. He has a lot of experience in Washington, and is very aware of how the system works, and is good on TV. Problem is...

Re: The War on Plastic

Overuse of plastic is a depressing thing about Asia. Bali beaches are very bad. I used to have to do a clean of my scene up every time I went out to shoot.

Re: It's Alan

That will never happen, because Trump is delusional and a pathological liar.
People who cannot see this in an instant create a problem for me: How is it that I can see the obvious, but they can't?

Re: Trump Anxiety Disorder.

I'm going to use the election results--if they are favorable--as an excuse to start feeling happy again. Looking back on it, I realize I spent too much time obsessing about how anyone could actually like that God Dam Crazy Man, and trying--and failing--to reason with those who do. When that piece of...

Re: Facebook Removes Hundreds of Media Pages

There is a hell of a lot of garbage on Facebook. Almost all of it from Conservatives. I'm happy they shut down Bullsh*t pages. Forget "free speech"--that is just a cover story for those who propagate lies and disinformation designed to fool ignorant people. Facebook has the right, and, given the dis...

Re: US Mid-term elections

Went to bed early on election day 2016, because I had a feeling of dread. Just couldn't deal with the possibility of the election of a God Dam Crazy Man.
This one feels different. I think that sane humans will retake the House, and restore some balance.
Hoping for a big blue wave.

Re: Where should we get our news?

If you are in America, MSNBC is the place to go. CNN is also decent. FOX is complete Bullsh*t. Guardian seems good to me. Some freaks will get all pissed off about this. This is typical of them. They are not rational people. It's ok to look at that chart, but, I think better to watch the shows. Ther...

Nice one. Maybe we can get some others to chip in with their own images.

Here's one I finished today.

Re: Trump Anxiety Disorder.

Hey David, I would say Trump's worst failures are not just the tax cut--which is horrible economics--and will lead to the inevitable cry to cut the deficit from conservatives. This, any Republican president would have done, because that is what they do. They live to cut taxes on rich people, and hur...

Hi Kim. Just put one up. Do you think the thread should be open to everyone who has natural beauty photos?

Sorry for the slow response time. I'm on WiFi, sometimes it goes out all day.

The Natural world, and why it matters.

Hi friends. I love going out to the beach and contemplating. Keeps me sane. I also love taking photos there. In this thread, I'll show some of my work. What I like are images that make you think and feel about natural beauty, and also put you into the same thoughtful mind I had when creating the ima...

Re: Trump Anxiety Disorder.

Yes, and the reason for that is Conservatives are basically afraid of anyone other than their tribe, and we have an entire TV network devoted to making that problem worse by spreading propaganda and lies. I'm referring to FOX, of course. This disease is spreading--Trumpism is becoming a virus infect...

Re: Trump Anxiety Disorder.

Hi Kim. My experience of losing 1500 "friends" on fb over the past two years has been, as you said, a lesson in attachments to views. I thought people would continue to enjoy my photos, maybe agree to disagree, or engage in a high-minded debate. I was wrong. No one did that. Everyone was too attache...

Re: It's Alan

Hi Kim. My photos are better than ever, after 3 years of working an hour a day in Lightroom and studying color theory. I'm happy to show them in whatever forum you think they should be placed. There is an "engaged" thing about it, because I do photography as a Buddhist practice, to keep me sane, and...
