McCain being presumptuouszenbowl

Fri, 15 Aug 2008 11:21:08 +0000

It’s being written about – on page 14. But at least they’re writing about the man who called himself President – before the election: Standing behind a lectern in Michigan this week, with two trusted senators ready to do his bidding, John McCain seemed to forget for a moment that he was only running for […](image)

Right Intention and the Bush Administrationzenbowl

Sat, 21 Apr 2007 00:12:40 +0000

Right Intention follows Right View in the Eightfold Path. I’ll link to Access to Insight again for an explanation: The Buddha explains right intention as threefold: the intention of renunciation, the intention of good will, and the intention of harmlessness. The three are opposed to three parallel kinds of wrong intention: intention governed by desire, […](image)

Eightfold path – Right View and diplomacyzenbowl

Thu, 19 Apr 2007 00:30:49 +0000

The Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism is the path to enlightenment. Even if you don’t seek to become a Buddha, though, considering the lessons of the Path would be a great benefit to whatever goal you want to achieve. The Path is not a series of steps to be accomplished one after another, but as […](image)

WHO and Taiwanzenbowl

Wed, 18 Apr 2007 01:54:25 +0000

I’ll never understand why the World Health Organization is content to play petty national politics with Taiwan when so many potential pandemics come out of East Asia. Director Margaret Chan decided to go ahead and put her foot in it again this past weekend. Regardless of your standpoint on the whole “one-China” thing, it is […](image)

Wingnut Constitutional Saintszenbowl

Fri, 13 Apr 2007 15:35:55 +0000

There appears to be a sizeable segment of the population that feels being fired for making sexually and racially inappropriate comments at work is somehow akin to constitutional martyrdom. For your amusement, therefor, I offer you the Ten Wingnut Saints of the Constitution, persecuted unfairly by a system gone haywire. The First Amendment: Saint Imus […](image)

The other “surge”, China’s ForExzenbowl

Thu, 12 Apr 2007 23:17:55 +0000

China just announced that its Foreign Exchange reserves are up over 37% from last year. China’s foreign exchange reserve reached 1.2 trillion U.S. dollars by the end of March, up 37.36 percent from the same period last year, the People’s Bank of China announced on Thursday. “The rising trade surplus is the major factor contributing […](image)

A tribute to Kurt Vonnegutzenbowl

Thu, 12 Apr 2007 14:32:15 +0000

No one else captured the sheer idiocy of modern war and violence better than Kurt Vonnegut. I’m sure the web will be filled with a million little pieces of memory–shards of a broken mirror, reflecting tiny pieces of a literary giant, so I will be brief and to the point. Slaughterhouse Five and Cat’s Cradle […](image)

Turkey steps up rhetoric on PKKzenbowl

Wed, 11 Apr 2007 23:54:03 +0000

With all the talk about the success of the surge, Washington has been strangely quiet about the increasing tensions between Turkey and the Iraqi government. Today, Turkey upped the ante by reviewing its military options against suspected Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) camps in northern Iraq. For now it seems that Turkey is holding back, but […](image)

Anti-intellectualismzenbowl

Mon, 09 Apr 2007 00:08:09 +0000

It’s no secret that anti-intellectualism is becoming more common in the USA. There’s a visceral reaction among many prominent media figures when the idea of expertise is brought to the fore, be it in the field of foreign policy, domestic policy, science or anything else. Much of the problem rests in the heart of evangelical […](image)

CNN, off the chartszenbowl

Sun, 08 Apr 2007 02:35:50 +0000

So I click on the CNN.com headline Congressman meets outlaw Muslim group leader, expecting to see news about a Democrat endangering the world, because, of course, it’s CNN and they botch everything. And, my god, did they botch this headline. If you click on the story, you learn that Steny Hoyer (D-MD) met with a […](image)
