Re: Fake News

Greetings, Donald Trump gave a $500,000 speech paid for by a Kremlin bank, and his private foundation had accepted $145 million from Vladi­mir Putin-linked oligarchs and their Western business partners! :jawdrop: Oh no, wait, that's #FakeNews ... it was actually Hillary . :lol: Oh, by the way... how...

Re: Hillary gave Away all our Uranium!

Greetings, Just wanted to see who got the joke. I know what you think the joke is, but I'm not so sure you're going to find it quite so amusing once the current array of investigations are completed and some of your heroes and heroines are behind bars... :stirthepot: We'll see... Metta, Paul. :)

Re: Is it okay to read buddhist text while i am using the toilet, having a smoke?

Greetings, I want to know whether it is okay if i read the dhamma on my smartphone while using the toilet or having a ciggarette while reading the dhamma? Any rules against that? The suttas were transmitted orally as opposed to being written down. As such, I'm not aware of any pre-emptive provisions...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Pulga, I think President Trump really does love his country, so it isn’t purely a tactical maneuver. I agree. One of the benefits to Trump of the Left thinking that he is stupid, is that they think he thinks in the same linear one-dimensional manner that they do. This assumption he is stup...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Chownah, Absolutely he trolls them for strategic advantage...absolutely he does that. Any lie that gives him strategic advantage will be told. No, I never said he does it through lies. “No one can resist the truth wrapped in a good joke, and ridicule is your most powerful weapon against th...

Greetings Lyndon, So you're basically admitting that you enjoy trolling left wing posters???? Makes sense to me. That's not what I said, Lyndon. To clarify: - Trump trolls them for strategic advantage, using their own aversion-filled mental rigidity about Trump against them... luring them into holdi...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings, When he views the parade I'd love the President to trick himself out in khaki or camouflage, if only to scare the beejeemees out of his critics. His critics are so predictable and so easy to troll. Personally I suspect talk of a military parade is laying the groundwork for wedging the Dem...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Chownah,

It's simply incongruous with actual events, IMO.

But if you wish to attribute such motives, I am not going to stop you, and I'm certainly not going to bother arguing with you about it.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings, Sounds like you think that trump has some great goal in mind. Well, yes, to Drain The Swamp in Washington DC. And to Lock Her Up. ;) ... but all by the book, in stark contrast to what preceded all this. But that aside, consider that as these shenanigans were afoot in the DOJ, FBI, State D...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Chownah, Does pubicly presenting this churn help in showing the case for conspiracy? The public don't need iron clad grounds for conspiracy, as the final decision on these matters will not be adjudicated within the public domain. However, the public as a whole will need to adjust and adapt...

It seems that not all of the dossier was presented to the FISA court and only the parts of the dossier which related to carter page were included and that at least some of those parts were corroborated...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings, Ironically, it's Trevor Noah who is part of what could more rightly be called the "propaganda machine", but that will all come to show itself in due course. In the meantime, a memo by the Senate Judiciary (aka the Grassley memo) has been released in a slightly less redacted form today, sh...
