Re: POTUS 2017

“I want to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians,” Trump said. “There is no reason there's not peace between Israel and the Palestinians — none whatsoever . So we're looking at that, and we're also looking at the potential of going to Saudi Arabia.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/...

Re: Inspiring University President stands up against intellectual infantilization

Thanks coucholder, Personally, I think the alt-right rants about safe spaces, triggering, SJW, etc are so silly that I don't take seriously anyone who uses such facile insults. As an educator, it is clear to me that safe spaces are a key aspect of learning. I challenge my students, but don't harass...

Re: POTUS 2017

Whatever "retreat" you subjectively feel has happened, doesn't seem to correlate with the concept of safe spaces as traditionally understood. To be honest, I have never seen any "safe space" in real life, apart perhaps from the nurse's office at school, but that's what it was in...

Re: POTUS 2017

Trump has retreated to his kind of safe space, that is a place filled with people adulating him, rather than facing a little humor directed at his person. I remember the day not so long ago when some of us pointed out how much of a fraud Trump is and others responded saying his election was a very m...

Pali term: avihiṃsā

avihiṃsā: [a+vihiṃsā] (the original context may be more user friendly) harmlessness, nonviolence, inoffensiveness. There is no direct definition of the term in the suttas. It seems to have been a well-known concept at the time that did not require much explanation. It can be seen as a principle unde...

Re: Does one need permision from both parents?

Thing is that my parents are divorced and the mother doesn't mind, the dad signed out when i was 6 y.o but i guess i would get permission from both. If your dad "signed out" then in the spirit of the rule you should not need to ask for his consent. Especially if you are out of touch. The ...

Republicans exempt their own insurance from their latest health care proposal

So House Republicans are keeping "Obamacare" regulations for themselves and allow the revival of the preexisting condition clauses for everyone else. I don't know if there can be any more blatant evidence that they are those who make up the swamp. Republicans exempt their own insurance fro...

avijjā: [a+vijjā] (the original context may be more user friendly) nescience, ignorance. Avijjā is defined at SN 12.2 as consisting of ignorance regarding the four noble truths: “katamā ca, bhikkhave, avijjā? yaṃ kho, bhikkhave, dukkhe aññāṇaṃ, dukkhasamudaye aññāṇaṃ, dukkhanirodhe aññāṇaṃ, dukkhani...
