Re: How much can a person change about themselves?

I get kind of angry and frustrated at times talking with people on the Internet. I know I shouldn't but there seems to be something inside my mind that propels me in that direction. It's not like I can just flip a switch and turn off anger or frustration and not be angry or frustrated anymore. Some...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

And the Americans who are health conscious, with good immune systems and access to health care are the ones surviving the pandemic! I'm making the point that your typical generalized characterizations of Americans are WRONG. It's the same way you accuse people you don't know of being Wokies. You do...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

I've not 'trying' to do, or be, anything on here (unlike some I could mention). You like to accuse me of this, which is wrong. I'm not pretending or trying to be anything either. I am genuine. You may simply not understand that. But, as with all of your claims against people you don't know, being w...

Re: STOP THE STEAL; An excercise in Political Performance

It is a performance based on lies and fantasy because the only agenda is to "win". The actors do not represent (in any way) the audience they speak/play to. No script is off limits on the stage, rather it's a form of insane improv. Nothing becomes too absurd for such a fantasy. The viewers seeking t...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

Yeah I know that you've been pissed at me for some time now. No, I'm not. Truly. I respond to each poster on this forum in the moment, and I'm pretty much always open to new potential to be experienced with people. (Although some may be more of a challenge to look past their relentlessly intoxicate...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

Blah, blah, blah Making a landslide of claims doesn't have anything to do with truth. If you understood this, you would not have supported such an obvious and proven prolific liar. Nor would you have been so dependent on mimicking one-sided distortions of media sources. You have clearly been a will...

Re: Putting ''Immanuel Can'' In The Religious Spotlight Part 2

Oh, hey...I get my own "part II." I feel privileged. I was just thinking, why the Hell does a topic with you and your nonsense need a Part 2? :lol: I guess it's because DAM is dramatic and likes to overblow things... and you like to be blown up. My point is Immanuel, IC will do. "Immanuel" is Chris...

Re: The Capitol building is breached by the Retrumplicans NOW!

Are you still a Dead fan, by the way? I'm a big Dead fan (as is probably obvious from my name and avatar) I still have all their music... I loved Terrapin Station... and when I hear them now, it brings back a certain glow :) ...but admittedly my connection has been most enduring over the years with...

Re: The Capitol building is breached by the Retrumplicans NOW!

I'm intrigued by the crazies, because at least they can provide something novel--some new twist on lunacy, and I find it an interesting challenge to see if I can get them to be a little less crazy Me too... but I think they're in a constant state of doubling down on their crazy because they fear th...

Re: The Exemplary Role Model of Jesus

Humans are capable of becoming all kinds of things, yes? Not really, humans can only be the human they are being, the being that they are being cannot be Jesus, unless that being really is Jesus. You asked if it was possible for a human to become like Jesus, yes? I answered what appears to me to be...

Re: You must be an idiot

The subject of idiots aside, how do you know when someone is using sarcasm in addressing you or others? Sorry, didn't mean to ignore your question... I just didn't have an obvious answer. I think it's difficult to tell sarcasm because there are so many factors involved... the speaker, the receiver,...

Re: The Exemplary Role Model of Jesus

Is it possible for the ''human primate'' to become like Jesus? Humans are capable of becoming all kinds of things, yes? Jesus said ''the kingdom of heaven is within you'' Does that mean it is possible for the 'human primate' to be (The Exemplary Role Model of Jesus) I think such an idea points to t...

Re: You must be an idiot

Well, I've called some people idiots on this forum, so I'd like to respond to this. I only say it when I really mean it and think it. However, I'm not saying it hatefully. I'm simply voicing what I see. I do not wish ill upon the other person. If I met them in person, I would be focusing on the ways...

Re: The Capitol building is breached by the Retrumplicans NOW!

Thank you, Lacewing, for your post. Well put. :) Thank you. It seems to me that good logic and clear sight must always strive to look at everything equally, without blind favor... and if there is blind favor, that should be examined even more closely (in case we're being a slave to it). It can be o...

Re: The Capitol building is breached by the Retrumplicans NOW!

Would impeachment/removal obviously be the correct action for the same exact offense of a Democratic president? Hold Trump accountable as would be reasonably demanded of any president. Are there multiple groups with destructive agendas for and against both political parties? Yes. Are members of only...
