I just happened into a group of websites describing some monasteries in Thailand called Buddhist

Hell. It is very disturbing.

I have believed that hungry ghosts and Hell realms were conditions in this world.

Can anyone help me understand this? I think it is very scary.

Warning - the statues depicted are violent and horrible so don't click if you don't want to see them.

What executive orders do you think Obama should create during his last year in ffice

He issued about 247 so far.

I think he should issue one about body cameras on all police if he is allowed to do. And I don't give a shit how much it costs.

(I just found he issued an order to take out military equipment). And in Feb 2014 he called on congress to pass order for camera but that has obviously been ignored)


Here are some numbers of other presidents executive orders

Franklin Roosevelt executive the most orders with 3,701

Ronald Reagan - 381

George W Bush 294

Barack Obama - 234

I would hope that there is some way, (like the anti abortion governors use) to make the governors of the states that refuse to adopt medicaid expansion to do so)

Here is a list of the orders Obama has implemented so far.

Just looking for ideas if anyone has one. I am sure that, we the people, can come up with more than the Democrats in Washington.

I don't know what he has issued about gun control safety.

Maher on Democratic fighting and how it hurts the party

Maher has a great way explaining things and what he has to say about Democrats and their crazy behavior right now.


Bill Maher on the death of liberals! Must listen!

Maher has a great way explaining things and what he has to say about Democrats and their crazy behavior right now.


Is the keeper of the website here? None of the little

things where you change the size of your shirt are working. I checked some other ones on the site and they seem not to be working also.

I would like to buy some things but......



I also keep trying to change the number of my bernie stickers and it won't let me change it.

Who do you think Bernie would vote for?

Do you think if he lost the primaries he would say, "I'm not voting for Hillary because I stand by my "principles"

Fuck NO. The man would stand with the Democrats. He wouldn't go on this ego trip of taking his vote away on a platform because things aren't the way he demands them to be! No matter what we are all being granted the good fortune of learning from him and have him spread a new way of looking at things to the masses.

Don't you think that alone will cause whoever is president to behave differently?

Or would you rather have Trump because your principles are more ego than anything else? And in the meantime all your fighting is just hurting the Democratic cause. I understand that people's emotions are running very high but that is no excuse for bad behavior.

I will vote for whoever is the Democratic nominee. Just like I'm sure Bernie AND Hillary would.

I have a lot of chronic conditions. Is it possible that my need for stimulation causes some of them


I remember thinking about being cured from the gastritis I've had for years and all of a sudden the thought, "I won't have anything to think of or I won't have anything to blame for just laying around" popped in my head.

I have heard that you get physical illnesses for emotional reasons and if you heal the emotional reasons the physical symptoms will not longer be needed.

I am just now getting read to get treated for ADD. I hope that this might be a symptom.

This is a cross post from GD that was locked because it was supposed to be here. I do NOT

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027629814

expect the same kind of support on this primary discussion board but I was told I could not keep that thread over there.

This whole place is becoming a snooze zone for us not fighting about the primaries.

Every damn thread is about Bernie or Hillary. Hillary or Bernie. "Look at what awful thing this one did" "Look at what awful thing the other one did" "We have such a big lead" "No you don't"


There is nothing interesting to read anymore. Nothing about the world about politics except the Democratic primaries.

Has anyone looked at what congress is doing? I usually get my news here but no more because there is group OCD that has taken over.

Anyway that's it. I hate to have to go look for news other places but I supposed I'll have to until this thing is over.

I just read this wonderful post on Youtube about abortion and body autonomy

She goes by the name, Katherine Kuznetsov on Youtube and here is the post


"You have no argument against abortion. Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didnít want to.

See, we have this concept called ďbodily autonomy.Ē Itís thisÖ.cultural notion that a personís control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.

Like, we canít even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.

To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You canít even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they arenít using anymore after they have died.

Youíre asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.

Also, if you think that the extremely high crime rate and gun violence in the US compared to countries where guns aren't legal for civilians to have isn't correlated to guns, you're an idiot. Maybe if psychos weren't running around shooting up schools with the guns they legally purchased, you wouldn't need a gun to "defend" yourself.
