Another very important tenet of Buddhism is the law of “cause and effect.” Thus for every action, there is a response. Too often, the two, cause and effect, are separated by years and sometimes, a lifetime or so.
Thus, it may appear as if people do not suffer for their evil actions or others miss finding happiness based on their kindness. The whole process takes patience.
But enough theory. Let’s have fun playing the Instant Karma game that we make up as we go.
Ted Cruz who presently has access to health insurance from three different sources: the amazing coverage offered by his wife’s employer Goldman Sachs; the wonderful polices made available to all members of Congress; national health insurance of Canada where Cruz was born.
The junior Senator from Texas has crafted a career centered on destroying, repealing or crippling Obamacare.
Instant Karma- Cruz gets sick and hit by a train and has no coverage.
Staying with Cruz for just another moment. He was born in Canada to an American mother and foreign father. Can he run for President?
He is white so the answer is yes. He has neither executive ability nor a coherent political philosophy so the answer is no.
This is simple and fun to play at home.
George W. Bush is visiting Iraq and gets hit by a drunken driver in a stolen car with a bad paint job. Think about it.
Family values politician David Vitter is caught going to prostitutes. Wait, that actually happened.
Rabid homophobe Michele Bachmann marries a gay man…
See- this is a great game for friends and family.
Let’s play some more.
Dick Cheney is finally tried at The Hague for War Crimes.
Wait. That would be justice.
