Re: Bushfires in Australia

Of a year in which the global warming is just over 1 degree. I live in an area that is mostly bush but each one or two years controlled burning is practised. Australia has always had bushfires. The current bushfires are obviously due to lack of forestry management rather than due the superstition o...

Re: Israel - United Arab Emirates landmark accord

You think Trump gives a damn about Palestinians, obviously not. or Biden & Harris? Anyway, this new video says 689 homes or structures were demolished this year and 869 Palestinians were made homeless. Yet there are folks who believe, for some reason, Buddhism supports or is compatible with Zionism...

Re: Why did Trump and The Conservatives fall?

Reason #2 Loss of control of mass-media due to supporting psychopathic lies about Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, etc. Now the right wing white conservatives are crying about how the globalist mass-media took control of the election narrative (and, if & when they wake up, the Covid-19 narrati...

Why did Trump & The Conservatives fall?

Reason #1

A lack of virtue. I was watching the video below recently and was impressed with Trump's manner. Why didn't Trump always speak with the manner in the video rather than engage in gutter talk?? :shrug:

Re: final POTUS poll

P.S. I can't give D. Trump a plan to fight the pandemic. It's a ridiculous expectation. There are thousands of doctors and the CDC who are QUALIFIED to fight the disease as the best specialists in the world. D. Trump needs to learn just as I am learning in a new field. He can do it. CDC is confused...

Re: Islam and Free Speech

“.. insulting the Prophet is insulting all Muslims, all prophets, all human values, and trampling ethics'. 'Insulting the prophet is no achievement. It's immoral.
