It do seem sterling clear. To some. As for the rest? Well, like they say, ya can lead a horse to water but ya can't make it drink.

Wandering in samsars's barren land,
amidst confusion and suffering.

Obsuration and delusions arise,
manifesting as they will.

Your actions in response,
karmic energies you feed.

Know the nature of heart/mind,
liberation will be its resting perch.

I had another visit from one of your admirers. I didn't delete her comment... yet. Check it out and see if you know who she is. She has her profile blocked being the coward she is.

"Suzanne" is an escapee from a far-right blog that's also known as "The Stench Trench." Do as I do when I see its name: Hit the delete button.

As I said on your blog, "Suzanne" is probably a teenager living in its mother's basement, eating cheetos, and pulling the wings off flies for amusement.

The "delete button" is you friend.

Ms. Shaw, It looks like the colonies are going to get some inclement weather. Be safe and stay warm.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skudrunner: We have blizzard conditions right now in Boston, and it is snowing 2 to 4 inches an hour. I walked outside for a bit, and it was brutal, but I've been doing that since I was a kid, except for the years I lived in California and Florida.

While indictments do not always equal guilt or convictions, the sheer numbers we see from the Trump Admin should dispel the notion that Trump only gets the best people.

Hard to believe a US President could make us long for the good old days of Nixon, clearly a crook, but one who respected the presidency enough to resign rather than sully the office.

No Name Needed said...

Sure, Nixon resigned, but it was a little late, he already sullied the office.
There are different levels of wrongdoing and Trump certainly wins the contest.
But there are enough Americans that would vote for him as president again and it's not impossible that he could win. That says a lot about Americans in a bay way. Go figure.
Trump seems to have risen Bush's respect level by being so crooked in comparison.
There are still three years to go, but at this point it looks like anyone could beat Biden, or his VP.

skudrunner said...

Rev, I agree with your longing to return to the good old days but I would select RR. NNN not sure the current situation of incompetence will improve over the next three years. The hole keeps getting deeper and even leftists are loosing faith. Maybe Sinema for pres since she seems to be above being bought.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud, you ignored my post on the corporations that gave tens of thousands of $$$$ to Sinema?

Why? She's been bought by big money. Do you ever look these facts up????

More Than 50 Billionaires—Including A Couple Of Trump Supporters—Have Donated To Senator Kyrsten Sinema

Shaw Kenawe said...

"Over the last five years Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema has received contributions from more than 50 billionaire supporters, all but one of whom hail from outside of her home state of Arizona."

Sinema has taken thousands and thousands of $$$$ from billionaire supporter FROM OUT OF STATE!

Why do you think she's not on the take?

Excellent verifiable truths. Hewever, when frozen concrete belefs (and desires), driven by unmtigated single pointed self interest, get in the way of intellectual clarity the mist clouds abiity to see things as they really are.

skudrunner said...

Ms Shaw, All politicians accept $$$$ from corporations and billionaires even saint barry. It is part of our political system and one of the reasons they start out with ideals and end up crooks. We do have the best politicians money can buy and if they cannot buy the politician they buy one of their family.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud, you wrote this: "Maybe Sinema for pres since she seems to be above being bought."

But Sinema has taken lots and lots of money from billionaire supporters from OUT OF HER STATE!

Why would she do that? And what is your definition of "above being bought?"

skudrunner said...

Standing up to the pressure to march in line with the lemmings. Unfortunately it cost millions to win an election and that requires accepting money from anyone who gives. We should change the system but the politicians like it this way because it keeps a lot of newbees out and makes those in office millionaires. Who said crime doesn't pay, they have never met a career politician who's hand is always out.

I know you believe there are honest politicians especially democrats. I don't share your optimism or naivety.

Kyrsten Sinema won't run for president. If she does she won't receive the nomination. Not of the Democratic or republican parties. She likely won't get elected to a second term in the Senate. She (and Manchin) might get donald tRump a second term, however. Which I doubt she would view as a bad thing. She might flip to republican if the Senate changes hands in the midterms. Then take a job as a lobbyist after being replaced by Ruben Gallego in 2024.

Ray Cranston said...

skudrunner and other Trumpers are angry because Biden said he'd pick a BLACK woman for the SCOTUS?

What about this? Trumpers had no problem with Trump picking his nominees ONLY from a list provided by the Federalist Society -- a big time Catholic group that far righters use to fill SCOTUS seats.

You don't hear a peep outta skud when the choice is limited to that, and not "the best qualified," cuz skud and his peeps only see a problem when a Democrat does what they do.
