First, I've been tempted to respond in a logical way to "Unikorn's" comment, but what he wrote was so far beyond reason, and so confused and incoherent, that I will not waste my time nor this forum's bandwidth on responding to his comment. For him to suggest that I have any sympathies with neocons, ...

Hey Ruiz,

Cool! And herewith I submit another very "ZEN" song, titled,
"Atomic Dog", It answers the Zen koan, "Does a dog have a Buddha-nature?" http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=LuyS9M8T03A

Vissi wrote, Please look Dr. King in the eye and say it directly to him, won't you? Gladly. I'd say, "Dr King, it's lamentable that so many Americans still think of Blacks as niggers and treat them as such in practice even though they don't use the word in public". See also, how the word was used to...

Hey Ruiz,

Good to hear from ya. And isn't that music (for "The Immigrant") just BEAUTIFUL?
Sometimes I just turn it on to listen to over and over.... :-)

I'm not being sarcastic or cynical at all, when I submit for your contemplation, the "Zen of Beavis": http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=7QxT-Qir6lQ Yes, this really IS "Zen". Seriously! And on that note (about Mexican immigrants to America), THIS warm-hearted cartoon, is ALSO ZEN! When you click this li...

Just a PS to part of my above comment, in which I said I had deep roots in America, including in Virginia where my cousin George Washington was born.... ...here is a beautiful song by the (VERY LIBERAL in the BEST way!) American diva, Joan Baez, about my heritage. And it's the heritage of the "WHITE...

Clemsy, thanks for your response in the spirit of our "agreeing to disagree" about the details while we agree on basic principles. And I think this is what JCF forum should be about, sharing and disputing personal perspectives with mutual respect in a "round table" way. You wrote: How's this: where ...

Clemsy, when you wrote this bit: It's really easy to be so be so cynical and pessimistic from the other side of the planet, Ned. you were out of line. My own small daughter lives in America. Not to mention that I haven't exactly been sunning myself on Sydney's Bondi Beach for the past decade or so; ...

Just a minor but significant correction: Unikorn referred to Campbell as "Dr". But Campbell had no doctorate degree of any kind, and he didn't have much respect for them either. He dropped out of his PhD studies because his PhD course was far behind the level of personal scholarship he had already ...

I assume that by "hyperbole" you include the lyrics of the Obama song? Again, it's not Obama as a person who worries me. Rather, I'm appalled by how low American political rhetoric has sunk, and the fact that self-described "liberals" are not sickened by scenes like this, forebodes the emergence of ...

Back to the original topic: A few days ago, my jaw dropped beneath the floor when I saw a stomach-churning video of some American children (apparently the children of so-called "liberals") singing a song about Obama bringing "happiness" to the entire world. Having spent a considerable amount of time...

Boringguy,

Oh dear. Please don't tell me you're a "back door man".

But if there are any "back-door men" here, then please pay a visit to the CEO of Lehman Brothers.

Computer information "reincarnates"

I'm reposting a comment I made on another thread, because I think it warrants a "spin-off" thread in this section: Joe, I'm mindful that my computer is an "it", and I am "its" god. So, my reasoning (a bit tongue in cheek) is that analagously to how the Christian God inspirited mere "dust" with the b...

Joe, I'm mindful that my computer is an "it", and I am "its" god. So, my reasoning (a bit tongue in cheek) is that analagously to how the Christian God inspirited mere "dust" with the breath of life and consciousness, I do the same for my computer.
