Prager says it ALL with just a few words…

‘BUDDHISM WILL NEVER CURE CANCER’

I heard this after I’d listened to a few minutes of Obama’s “peace, love, dove” speech..”if everybody just cared enough, if everyone put the other first, if we all just got along, if money wasn’t so darned important….ladida!”  (I paraphrase, but this really is the love song of the Left, isn’t it?)

No, Mr. Obama, you might be happier when everybody’s picking daisies and loving on each other…….Buddhism is so uplifting and nonjudgmental, isn’t it?  BUT…….without Capitalism, without people WORKING HARD, without lives being shortened by gunshots and such pessimism in Black communities (you never ONCE even tried to help), without people expecting the best and going for it…………

…..it will never cure cancer.

Capitalism can.  And probably will.

Thanks, Dennis Prager…that one phrase is such a metaphor for us against them.

(and yes, folks, I like the juxtaposition of the photos, too…undeniable truth)

    Regarding your remark regarding Buddhism- The vast majority of Buddhists are not monks but highly productive people. Capitalism and Buddhism are not non-exclusive. It has an interesting take on life which I have enjoyed studying. But I get your point! Agree.. 🙂

  2. We should all spend some time on Prager University. It arms us against the lies in the media. We are in danger of outsourcing our research on the issues to the liberal elite. I used to have an assignment in class where students had to name the most important invention in history. In other words, the invention that had the most impact on humans and their lives. I got everything from the plane (we’re in Dayton) to the internet and everything in between.

    To me it was Guttenberg’s Printing press. It allowed knowledge to spread to common people. We know knowledge is power and we know that Americans were the most literate revolutionaries in history. The committees of correspondence were their internet. We need to educate ourselves in order to effectively combat media elite bias. The education industry, and it is an industry, is the current battlefield of ideas. And we’re losing. Z, keep up your work on this blog. It is a great forum of ideas. I learn a lot from other posters.

    Bunkerville…you’re right……most Buddhists aren’t monks but I mean the REALLY dedicated Buddhists, like monks, who do live that type of life. Productive to their faith, not so productive to all of mankind. thanks. I agree with you, too. Glad you still get the point!
    I hope the capitalism and Buddhism aren’t non exclusive….I have a friend who’s a VERY strong Christian now and she was a strong Buddhist for 25 years (she actually regrets now having brought so many into Buddhism) and I’m going to talk to her about it.

    Law and Order, yes, we are DEFINITELY losing….I so appreciate your enjoying my blog because I so often , especially lately, wonder if it’s the right thing for me to be doing. THANK YOU

    Please don’t question if your blog is the right thing to be doing, Z. I agree with L & O that it IS. I learn a lot from it and hope you continue doing it. As for Obama’s speech yesterday, like Trump said later…………..BORING! SOSO. (same old-same old).

    “if everybody just cared enough …. etc.” In other words if we were all Christians living as Christians. 🙂

    The Buddhist community that works some of these amazing healings is VERY limited, and accessible to few. Few of us could be a Shaolin monk – or get to one! – but we can ALL consider the interests of others as our own, walk by Jesus’ words and example, and create the conditions that brought the greatest lifting out of poverty and disease seen in world history. These are: the sanitation and refrigeration practices that the ‘excess’ wealth of accumulated capital allowed for and that the Judeo-Christian impulse for caring for our fellow man and God’s creation furthered into existence.

    VERY lucky me got to spend some time with Orson Bean today at an event we both attended…..Wondering which of you might have read his fabulous piece on Breitbart this week…very sad because, as he says, today’s bias is creating a situation far worse than the Communist Hunt of the 40’s (which he was part of because ‘I was chasing a russian Commie chick at the time’! Ed Sullivan got him jobs when Sullivan realized Orson was NO COMMIE, and his career continued to take off, obviously!)
    He is SO bright at 91 and so physically well he drives his bike all over Venice.
    His wife is a sweetheart……

    Anyway………just had to name drop a bit because I wish you could ALL meet him and see what a fabulous guy he is. And so conservative and such a good Christian……..a real ‘bon vivant’…spicy with an off-color joke, like the one he told from the podium today, and so full of fabulous memories of Jack Paar and Johnny Carson and SO SO SO many..he knew EVERYBODY. What a life.

    Sadly, those that need to listen to Prager won’t – for a number of reasons. Afraid to abandon their fantasy, Mind made up at age of 3, etc.

    Social media is either an echo chamber or an argument with a closed mind. Like a child who needs to put hand over flame, America must learn by experience and then not be so far in the hole it can’t get out. Yea, I know, I’m a ray of sunshine.

    Not being critical of your post or its intent. I still plug away too but expect nothing. Maybe, Maybe, 1 in a million will read some sanity and think, Hmm, maybe they have a point. Plus, what else would I do ?

    Hi, Kid…didn’t think that this quote that’s so important would change the minds of liberals…I do know that Prager DOES change hearts and minds; I know it personally from libs who started listening to him and changed. Honestly.

    I found this a really metaphorical and true remark……………
    Prager’s on radio, by the way, every day, and he speaks at universities where kids call in later and say he changed their minds on a lot of subjects.

    But, as I said, this post is for us…….a really good way of putting a huge problem in one phrase!

    They get 50 million views a year…pretty good. Obviously a lot of those are the same people, but that’s pretty darned good.

    Z, Well, it is always darkest before the dawn, but before I put my $ down, I need to see some evidence. It may come in early November and then again in Nov 2020. If we (America) are to survive, I believe the left must be rejected enthusiastically and for many elections to come.

    Yes, evidence. I haven’t seen any. As things heat up, both sides seem to entrench themselves in left or right (to keep it simple)
