Out of respect to the OP and forum staff, I'd request you start a new topic if you wish to explore the matter further.

Re: Itty bitty avatars

Greetings Nicholas,

The image height was 189 pixels, and the allowable max is 200, so I didn't need to scale the image, or crop anything from the top or bottom... so instead I just cropped from the left and right and tried to keep the Buddha central.

Re: Itty bitty avatars

Greetings Nicholas,

If you don't know how to scale images on your computer, I'm happy to do it for you.

I just use good old MS Paint.

Re: How do Trump supporters justify seeing past all that?

Greetings Dan, Thanks you for replying, Paul. Could you point to a few of these assertions that are totally fraudulent? Nicholas has already done that. TBH, I am much more interested in understanding where people are coming from, than in validating my prejudices. So anything you'd be willing to shar...

Re: How do Trump supporters justify seeing past all that?

Greetings Dan, Your post is symptomatic of why the author will never understand Trump's support. - It construes scenarios in the worst-possible light, often to the extent of being totally fraudulent - It literally puts words in the mouths of its supporters, pre-judging them (i.e. prejudice) Trump su...

Re: Should we have a world protest day?

Greetings, Just as when you asked the same question in another topic.... To whom, and about what? Is what you say in accord with the Blessed One's teaching? It looks very contradictory to any suttas I've ever read. Suttas I have read tend to talk about universality (of loving-kindness, of compassion...

Australia is often influenced by what's happening in America... even when there are no genuine parallels between the situations in question. I suspect local radicals have seen ...

Indeed. There is definitely more to all of this than we will be told by the mainstream media.

For example, see this "stunning development"...

Greetings, It appears that the protest now moved to Australia as well!! Yes, the Australian mainstream media jumped all over the U.S. riots like a bad rash - glorifying the protests in order to cast President Trump in a bad light... and by doing so, seditiously encouraging certain people to foment d...
