Re: Hate Campaigns Here at PN

... are real, and how I feel about them is: disgusted. On the topic of Trump. Trump has the mentality of a small, tiny, little child. He a little baby-man, tiny and small, so tiny. No one is more tiny than him, since Abraham Lincoln. On one. No one ever ever. Though he is big and fat, so fat, he ha...

US Presidents have been the subject of jokes for comedians since the time of JFK or earlier.

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

Yes, to all that you posted above, IC.

So it sounds like the problem is non-existent or difficult or implacable, but not acceptable if proved real.

I’m afraid I have nothing more to add at this time. How about you?

Re: Wherever You Are, Whatever You Are Doing

Regarding "suffocation", please see my references in another thread to medical care of dyspneoa . Much suffering is caused by anxiety, which can be allayed. Where is that thread, please? My experience included no drugs but there was a definite anxiety. It’s my understanding that anxiety per se is a...

Re: talkin' 'bout 'murica, here...

I notice that what you are recommending is a lot of nothing. "A lot of nothing?" You mean that I don't recommend jumping to the stupid, unwarranted and counter-statistical assumption that all our cops are racist and in need of retraining? Indeed so. I also recommend we don't teach our young men to ...

Re: talkin' 'bout 'murica, here...

You aren't even recommending this much. I'm recommending we don't put any serious problem in the hands of people who don't know what's causing the problem. And I'm recommending we rule out any stupid and superficial explanations, such as "It's just racism," because nobody's interests are served by ...

Re: Wherever You Are, Whatever You Are Doing

BTW, I’m not afraid of COVID. I’m not even afraid of death. But I am afraid of suffocation, and I’ve had a taste of that without having COVID, as far as I know. If you think that respiratory failure from COVID is no big deal, just ask a friend to waterboard you for about 15 min. Yes, I think suffoc...

Wherever You Are, Whatever You Are Doing

Could you continue to live indefinitely the way you do now? Whatever stage of restrictions, if any, you endure now, could you see yourself continuing to endure for any amount of time going forward? As for me, I have stayed in the house, ordered groceries and dog food over the internet, and spent my ...

Re: philosophy of technology

I just assumed God is perfect. How can God not be perfect? Isn’t perfection in all things a basic attribute of God?

I mean to say that I thought God resides in heaven, and I’ve heard that heaven is perfect.

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

I don’t understand feelings well enough to name emotions involved or to say how they are to be changed. I recognize values as an element of a shared culture. I would like to pass on your other questions as the only evidence I have is my personal experience, which is, after all, anecdotal and about w...
