    Without imbuing false modesty, I don’t see myself as particularly moral (I’ve done some pretty sh* things in my life) nor do I characterize myself as emotionally stable, however I do find my spirit stirred in moments when I allow myself to be present and vulnerable to my humanness. Perhaps that is a beginning to the morality and emotional character that you mention.

    My admi ...[text shortened]... hat in my focusing on being a more authentic human, I am better able to feed my spiritual beingness.
    Being receptive to spiritual awakening is already a spiritual awakening.

    News, unfortunately, has become entertainment. Daily newspapers and quality magazines are dying. Social media have pushed to the forefront dozens of new information sources, many of them biased or unreliable. The current administration in Washington follows a script written for a reality TV show.
    There's a script?? I think they're ad libbing their way through, one crisis after another.

    Politics goes on at many levels and ultimately involves community service, not just power. For example, helping out at a local soup kitchen, dispensing food to homeless people, is politics at a level feasible for anyone who cares about his or her community.

    There is, however, in America, a very strong and vocal segment of the population which has a visceral mistrust and hatred of government and regulation in all its forms. They have a vote in the world's showcase democracy and yet do nothing but gripe about 'goobermint' taking away their rights. Political dilettantes they are.

    I don't think Trump showing up at any middle East venue would be met with anything resembling acceptance.
    He's lionised in Israel.

    There is no reason to think that intelligent life on other planets must have opposable thumbs and use electricity, just because we do.

    This sad time in America is a lot like the early Hitler days, people getting into this personality cult and the don't see the road they are going down is extremely dangerous.
    They can't see the idea of democracy is fragile, easy to ruin and Trump is well on his way to doing exactly that, turn the US from a democracy to an autocracy.
    People who condone th ...[text shortened]... e what is going on are the dangerous ones, being unconsciously dragged along by a toxic personality.
    When a head of state is given carte blanche to employ the organs of state to harass his political rivals;

    when a head of state actively manipulates news media to print a distorted narrative at variance with facts;

    when a head of state shields his convicted cronies from justice,

    fear for liberty--for these are the very building blocks of tyranny.

    There are so many variables, it is pure speculation that any intelligent exo-life-form would even try to communicate. Imagine an opaque-cloud-covered planet like Venus, or a water-world; intelligent life could develop there and never get beyond its own atmosphere or ocean, never see the sky, never even suppose that there might be anything above their own atmosphere or ocean to communicate with.

    I do not know how it is done, but I have played against a player who did not see the boards (2 simultaneous games).

    one more time...there was no dirt that needed dug up. biden is on tape admitting it.

    And Trump has never said Guilianni was not his lawyer...wtf?
    One more time: It's not about the Bidens. It's about Trump. Trump denied what he now admits. He lied, lied, lied. Republican Senators bought the lie and voted to acquit a liar.

    The liar then fires the people who told the truth. The people who told the truth are vilified and lose their jobs, the one who lied keeps his job and is lionized. Morality turned upside down. That's what Republicanism stands for.

    Get it now?

    Trump now admits to what Sondland and the Lt. Colonel testified to, namely that Trump sent Giuliani on a mission to Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens. Trump had previously denied this.

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/02/13/politics/trump-rudy-giuliani-ukraine-interview/index.html

    So why did he fire them? What a hypocrite.
