Re: Black Lives Matter

Greetings, I think that race relations are actually harmed by Cultural Marxist movements such as Black Lives Matter (doubling as shell accounts for the Democrats) which are built upon agitprop. Comic relief! I think it is better instead to strive for a harmonious colorblind society, as per Martin L...

Re: Black Lives Matter

You're in Portland, Oregon? Not your fault of course, but it's known as one of the whitest large cities in the U.S. So Portland is racist? Well, of course not, and I don't think you meant to imply that . . . "Not you fault of course". Wow! Buddhism in America (including, perhaps, Las Vegas?) is kno...

The Post's View Opinion Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence is an unforgivable betrayal of his office Opinion by Editorial Board July 10, 2020 at 9:15 p.m. EDT THERE ARE no doubt thousands of people in federal prison who deserved a presidential commutation more than Roger Stone.

Re: Best of Trump, Worst of Trump

Trump makes those hand gestures and talks in that voice when making fun of practically anyone. Trump is an annoying blowhard, but that doesn't mean he hates disabled people. Thank you for confirming my prediction that a conservative on this forum would rationalize Trump's inhumanity. I didn't defen...

Report of Trump ridiculing a disabled person: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9reO3QnUA&pbjreload=101 This was always the incident that convinced me it would be impossible to support Trump. It is beyond insensitive. On this mainly right-wing forum, maybe one person can justify Trump's mockery? Tr...

Re: Yoga as Exercise

I am really bothered by the trend of yoga as exercise, because it removes the yogic postures from their original spiritual context, cheapening and commercializing the practice of yoga. Women might look attractive in tight pants, but what does it have to do with spirituality? I don't believe this is...

Re: The GOP

If humankind is burdened by the weight of negative karma, then leftist utopianism just can't work in the real world. This shouldn't be too hard to understand.

Re: The GOP

Citation? What kind of citation do you have in mind? Are you familiar with and understanding of the terms I have used? Reiun needs a citation so he can find a Leftist site that debunks the text or person or group quoted. Only if there is such a source. Preferably one you are proud to quote.

Re: The GOP

Presto Kensho wrote: Thu Jul 02, 2020 10:36 pm Leftist utopianism is against the Judeo-Christian doctrine of original sin, because it insists upon the predictability of mankind and human society. It's also against the Buddhist doctrine of past karma, which prevents human society from collectively being able to perfect itself.
