"I've used both techniques. Each has its pros and cons. Wallowing in self loathing is generally underrated."

"Fantastic! I will look for MacAllan 12 when I'm in town. The 18 and upward are a little out of my budget at the moment. Thanks for the tip!"

"Then I prescribe The MacAllan, 12 years old at least and preferably 18 or 25. Its smooth, rich Speyside character may not be as rough and contradictory as Johnny Walker Black, but it may be more to your liking."

Friendly Helpers For Those Expatriating?

Friendly Helpers For Those Expatriating?

 

If anyone outside the USA has possible job leads for persons wanting to expatriate, I would be grateful for friendly voices and tips.

I don’t mean to “cry wolf” because it is not literally bad enough here in the US to need the protection of legal sanctuary.

But some folk (I’m one of them) have a suspicion it will become quite bad in upcoming years. I can speak some Spanish, German, and French, but not yet…

The Word ‘Truth’

 

Has the word ‘truth’ been fully and completely co-opted? In my view the answer is yes. Words such as accuracy and correctness must be used now to convey something the word truth used to still convey as recently as 30 years ago.

 

It seems the word truth was being corrupted and co-opted generations earlier however. Superman fought “for truth, justice, and the American way” as though a non-earth-born life form would,…

[Quick edit: my blog could make it seem I recently became an atheist.  Really it's been somewhere between 7 and 20 years.  The lower number reflects how long I've said "I'm an atheist."  The higher number reflects how long I've said, "by nearly every definition I'm an atheist, so I'm probably an atheist."

Jim, welcome to Atheist Nexus, and I see you like Dyslexic's DOG's discussion, Fox News = ... I like reading Dyslexic Dog's contributions, too and look forward to reading what you have to say about current events or whatever. Make yourself at home. 

You write that you are college educated; what are your interests? It is reassuring to learn that you are "mostly sane." That is good quality.
