    I never understood that Buddhist, "I'm politically pissed so I am going to set myself on fire" thing. Personally I would rather grab a rifle and fight the bastards.

    I expected to see a protest about the One Child policy. I saw that HBO episode of Vice covering the current situation in China because of it. There are now 50 million more men than women there. If a man cannot afford to take care of the family including his parents and hers, he may never get married.

    If they'd stop killing the infant girls, that problem would go away.

    and seeing a baby girl get run over in the streets and just walking by her like she were a bird hit by a car.

    They want sons so that they will have someone to take care of them when they get old as Greg said above. I find it funny they do that because my experience is women are far better at caring for elder parents/grandparents than men.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Setting themselves on fire is kind of like Detroiters and LA residents getting pissed and burning their own houses down.

    I don't know about Detroit (though I can guess), but in LA, it was just one type of person burning their own shit down. I know, I was there when the last riot happened.

    the Dalai Lama told Thurman. "The same energy that can cause someone to do this to himself is very close to the energy that enables someone to kill others in fury and outrage."

    Ah, Wingson, Confucius say, For gentlemen of purpose and men of ren, while it is inconceivable that they should seek to stay alive at the expense of ren, it may happen that they have to accept death in order to have ren accomplished.

    If the promise of 72 virgins were made, I'd think this guy might be related to Allah.

    Back when the riots happened, the blacks tried to go into the better parts of LA to riot and loot. They got to the edge of those areas and saw a wall of police officers. They promptly turned back and destroyed their own neighborhoods.

    What a fucking joke.

    That happened in the Mexican neighborhoods also. The rioters ran into the vatos and turned back. There was a classic video of black rioters running out of a Hispanic owned business carrying loot. Then a few seconds later, there was a bunch of vatos bringing the stuff back into the store.
