Okay. But I still haven't found any site that says Tse Tung was a Buddhist. In fact, all I have found say he practiced no religion. Thought you might have a site for that info.

<quoted text>What world do you live in that you don't know about poverty stricken areas of this country.
You might want to start by looking at the Appalachia area today. If I'm not mistaken, this is near where Annie grew up. There is still no running water, no indoor toilets, no electricity in many of these mountain homes.
But instead of taking a compassionate look at the poverty which some have had to withstand, you make fun, call them liars, and berate them as much as possible.
I was wrong. I don't think there's a thing left inside of you that is good or decent or compassionate.
Here's an article about that poverty. If it doesn't stir your hear, you're not worth talking to.

my ex was from mingo county wv. he insisted that i would love living there. so he uprooted me from dallas, texas and moved us to this lil hole in the wall town. most people in town didn't have indoor plumbing. BUT, they had those huge satellite dishes [that were so popular in the early 80s]sitting in their front yards!

when people would find out i was born in dallas texas they would ask if i knew J.R. EWING and the rest of the gang.

personally if i had a choice between t.v. and indoor plumbing.......indoor plumbing wins hands down!

The people for whom I make gifts are those who know that loving hands making something special for them is a much more thoughtful gift than something that can be purchased at the mall.
When has someone made homemade jelly for you? When has someone made homemade bread for you? I do that on a fairly regular basis for the people I love and care for. It's not quite the same as buying a jar of jelly and a loaf of bread at the store, which I presume is what you'd rather have.
ohhhhhhhhhhh my goodness girl..........homemade bread and jam.........:

We moved to the Mountains of N.C. and one of the interesting things I learned, was that many folks that lived in the area did not have power or running water in their homes up to the late 1970’s. A few homes in the area still did not have electricity running to their homes when we were there in the 90’s. We would go to the homes and do wellness checks during the winter time. When I asked a local why they did not have power, I was told that for some it was due to choice, and for others it was due to the cost of running the electric to the home from the main line at the road. Their homes did not look like the one in the link Water provided. They looked like typical smaller homes, but they were out in no mans land off of dirt paths that could loosely be termed a drive (We used ATV‘s during the winter to get in).
It is very easy in my opinion, to forget that some simply choose to live life without things that many of us take for granted. On 276 from S.C to N.C (or vise versa) at the ½ way point between the foothills of S.C. and the Eastern Continental Divide sign in N.C. there is an old iron hand drawn well off the side of the road, that many in the area still use to get fresh water. I tried to find a photo of the area online, I could not find the well but I did find one of my favorite spots to sit and unwind.

It is an open chapel, so there is no glass in that photo. I have to tell you that it was always amazing to sit up there on the ledge and look out over it all. The best time was during the winter, when you could only hike in. The photo says that it is a couple miles to N.C. but we lived about two city blocks from the camp, and we lived in N.C. so he is a little off in the mileage. If anyone finds themselves in the area, this is well worth a detour in my opinion (Do not attempt in the winter though). By the way, the silence is as breathtaking as the view. No cars, if you hit it right, no people…..hmmm, I think I am due for a road trip in the spring ;O)
we have alot of amish here in our neck of the woods.......most do not have electric lights.........but they do have gas powered genrators for their clothes dryers!

confuses the hell out of me!

The word "Kavi" seems to imply East Indian undertones. I unconsciouslly thought of the cereal brand "Kashi" when I originally read it. My honest opinion is lose that name and start over.

For the last time, please pay attention:

Pol Pot was a Buddhist.

Mao Tse Tung was an ATHEIST, NOT A BUDDHIST.

Thank you, however, for showing us all your hatred and your evil and your sickness that comprise the foundation of your christianity; you serve it well. I'm tempted to tell you that I think you've drilled one too many holes in your head, but in restrospect I don't think I will. As a matter of fact, I hope you *continue* to drill until you strike oil.

With regard to the tragic shootings yesterday...
After reading as many articles as I could find, I've not found one that gives any indication of the shooter's religion or lack thereof.
I have found however, he was Autistic which may be part of the cause of this tragic incident.
Therefore religion or lack of religion has no place in determining his supposed cause or purpose.
This was a senseless violent act that possibly could have been prevented. I wonder how he was brought up as an Autistic child. What was he allowed to do regarding weapons and such. Was he acting out one of his childhood fantisies? We have an Autistic child in our neighborhood and I've watched him lately acting out with play swords and such and it worries me.
You need to reconsider your position and try to look at this without your religion controlling your mindset.
From what I've heard, his mother was the teacher of the class he shot; he killed her first, then her class. The weapons were not his, they were his mother's. Maybe he thought she was giving them something she never gave him, and it drove him into a blind rage he felt he needed to act on. He was just one crazy sick dude.

I can see "viking" aka "just results" doing the same thing.*That* dude needs to be watched.

He tells himself that his hatred is okay, and is even forgiven and encouraged by his jesus. He'll probably wind up being the next mass shooter.

Gad. You're really wrapped around the axle over this, aren't you?

OK. First Google on "anapaest" and you will see this:

"An anapaest (also spelled anapæst or anapest, also called antidactylus) is a metrical foot used in formal poetry."

And the listing for "anapaestic tetrameter" includes the following: "the initial unstressed beat of a line may often be omitted."

So that first line you're worrying about -- the initial unstressed beat has been omitted. It's called a "clipped foot" -- scans this way:

i THINK about CHRISTmas this TIME of the YEAR.

Four anapaests. Anapaestic tetrameter. Is that clearer now?

(Criminy. All you had to say was, you didn't like the couplets.)
