Re: Trump. And why I hate him.

My friend, you know I am never shy. It is just what their donors wanted--tax cuts. Because that is all they ever want, and the Republican party exists for that reason alone. Tax cuts for the wealthy. Next up, they will complain about the deficit they have created, and use that as an excuse to cut so...

Re: Why telling lie is so bad?

I'd tell a lie if it would save a life, In the face of those who would kill.
Other than that, be honest.

Re: Trump. And why I hate him.

But who are the people who still like him, and why do they like him? What is wrong with these people? Because I think they must have some serious mental problems. "Mexicans are rapists"! he claimed. "Build a Wall"! He said. The crowd chanted along. Also: "Lock her up"! The audience was pleased. They...

Re: Trump. And why I hate him.

Trump got his start by telling idiots and fools--there are way more of them than you might want to admit--that President Obama was not born in America. This is just so much obvious Bulsh*t. Who is stupid enough to believe this complete Bulls*t? Answer: Trump supporters. They are God Dam Stupid. Note...

Trump. And why I hate him.

First off, friends, I apologize for not getting into the other discussions on this. Makes me so sick. I had to take some time off. Here is why I hate Trump, and why you should, too. 1) He refuses to recognize facts. 2) He is living in his own, separate reality, in which only he is great--all others ...

Re: Happy Halloween, I will now remove my mask

Oakland born but primarily a Patriots fan, due to time spent in New England.
But Baseball is a far superior sport. Go A's.

Re: Vault 7 (Wikileaks)

She was on a plane, and Bill Clinton was on another plane.They were both delayed. He went to talk to her. So what? Bill Clinton talks to everyone who will put up with him. Everyone knows that. As for James Comey, he was the guy who put out complete B.S. about Hillary. You need to stop reading right ...

"Fox and Friends" is paid propaganda, and everyone on the program are professional liars.

Re: How did you learn to love reading books?

You don't "learn' to love reading, you just have it.
Just like a musician loves to play, or an artist loves to create.
Life without books would be worthless for me. But then again, I can't abide small talk, and have no interest in most stuff that fills the minds of ordinary people.

Re: Vault 7 (Wikileaks)

The Central Intelligence Agency is collecting intelligence.
Shock, horror.
Was there anything in there proving all those accusations from the right about Hillary?
If they have it, why not release it?
The Clinton foundation is so corrupt? Obama tapped Trump's phone lines?
Hmm. No evidence of that.

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Everyone knows that Russian Embassy officials are being watched. Referencing anything from the propaganda show known as "Fox and Friends" is weak, to say the least. Those guys are paid to lie. And for once, I will agree with chowna. If you can't tell the difference between truth and fiction, you are...

Don't forget your reading glasses!
Also, I'd bring my camera. Because I like to take pretty beach pictures.

Re: Desert Island books religious/secular/mixture

As far as Dhamma books are concerned--the answer is obvious. Everyone will say the same thing.
But if you are ever stranded on the beach, best place to look is inward. Sit and listen to the waves.

You are correct--it's silly.
But have you read Patrick O'Brian? Great stuff.
