Also, Fox news is not operating in a vacuum. They didn't create some anti-Obama sentiment out of thin air. They're simply fueling an already existing paranoia. See .
"Delighting in existence, O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence, they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind."
- It. p 43

Malala Yousafzai asks President Barack Obama to end drone strikes in Pakistan



The video clip is nice (it is from the Daily Show though).

I don't want to discuss the drone stakes but drone strikes are dictated by the politics of the US and Obama, but I think you are forcing this off topic.

Well there are many rational reasons to be critical of the Obama presidencies. Malala Yousafzai is critical of the drone strikes because she thinks they fuel terrorism and because innocent people are killed. I don't think that she is a hater or his moral inferior.

Now if this topic was meant to be about the shutdown and US internal political manoeuvring then yes my posts may have missed the mark but this thread had already rambled and wobbled and possibly the intention of the OP was not that clear. Some may enjoy to read about Malala and listen to her speak.

Is there any way to properly practice Buddhism without being an Obama supporter, it would seem some think not.......
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John
