Widening Inequality Combined with Modest Growth

"The author, Benjamin M. Friedman, argues that inequality, combined with only modest growth, can have grave moral consequences. History suggests that, in the past, a rising standard of living has promoted tolerance for others, commitment to economic opportunity, and democracy. But stagnating incomes due to inequality can lead to the opposite outcomes. The nation’s response to immigration is a good example, says the author."THE CRISIS TRIGGERED BY THE COLLAPSE OF SUBPRIME MORTGAGE LENDING in the…See More

Today is the first day I can see the raised bed in my vegetable garden. My seeds will be going into seed trays in the next few days and hopefully will be hardening off in the greenhouse. Let the seeding begin!

About Me:
I am an 80-year-old curmudgeon; I like the 1500s spelling best and definition:
"An ill-tempered (and frequently old) person full of stubborn ideas or opinions."
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

Winter Solstice offers a time to look back on the past year to acknowledge my challenges and the things I chose to do to solve those problems. This recent past year was a very hard one for me with the death of my oldest son, Cary, a victim of cancer at the young age of 53 years and one month. This loss turned out to be harder on me than I imagined. Thankfully, Craig and Laura and their families walked these dark days with me. 

After wallowing in that pain I turn my attention to the…

Part 4 Booms and busts punctuate the history of capitalism; it is a systemic problem.

Part 4 Booms and busts punctuate the history of capitalism; it is a systemic problem.

Remember General Motors, producer of automobiles? Over the last thirty years, General Motors created a subsidiary called GMAC, General Motors Acceptance Corporation. It is a bank. It lends money. It began by lending money to people to buy cars because their wages couldn’t pay for them. Then GMAC discovered they could make more money off the interest of the loan than they could make…

Part 3 We reached the limits of the kinds of capitalism this society can endure.

Part 3  We reached the limits of the kinds of capitalism this society can endure.  

Turning, now, to the big business community, the last thirty years have been spectacular. Everything about the working class, with the introduction of computers, U.S. workers became more and more productive. We had a thirty-year period of rising labor productivity. Each year the worker produces more, and the wages stayed the same. 

The gap between what the workers…

Hi Joan!  Thanx for the note and warm welcome. This being my first post to any blog , am treading new unfamiliar waters. Consider me more a gardener rather than a Farmer. I incorporated the PH into my handle to delineate more precisely my leaning to medical MJ.<wink>,,,Though I was hoping to connect with folks in my area of Humboldt Co. Calif.  for reasons of making specifically friends/contacts within visiting distance, Too, even though I suspect there are many atheists here we, as most atheists, don't advertise ourselves around here and it does get a bit tedious at times socializing with believers all the time.

  Your hunch is correct though in that we are indeed in earthquake country!  Several dozen a day is not an exaggeration small ones mostly but quite often a 2-4 pointer is quite common..Wanna be pen pals? I always enjoy meeting new people :)   Allow me then to compliment you on your garden photos, more precisely the garden itself !  Beautiful! Thanx for sharing..  :) 

As mentioned , this being my first blog experience, am gonna have to remember to check in with this blog for I am rather surprised at how soon I received a msg.  Which I would add brought a welcome smile to me face. Oh dear what a blabber i am!!  Wel, gotta run now...again so very nice to make your acquaintance Joan !...   All my best to you and the great Nor'west !! tah!

Hi Joan, thanks for welcoming me to A/N. I hope to meet some like minded people in my area, but they're pretty few and far between in this part of the country. I travel quite a bit for business and find the West Coast, NW, and NE of the country much more accepting of non-theistic ideals.-Mike S.

I'm so sorry, Joan. Feel free to send me messages if you want to talk.

Hugs, Ruth.

Thank you, Joan. As a student of life and a seeker of all things logical I often ran into a site with this "Irreverend Mike"-15 years ago I dove into the battle of ones faith. What faith I had prior to 15 years ago was not suitable an answer. Thus I dove ALL in and opened my mind towards all views. When I dove-I ran back into this "Irreverend Mike", engaged contact and I am forever grateful. Looking to give a "shout out" and say "Thank you", whether he remembers me or not, I found this site. I am excited!! Thank you again for your welcoming!

Thanks, Joan, I was wondering when someone would notice!  I figured it was about time to update things (the old pic is at least six to seven years old), so I pressed my webcam into service and ... VOILA!

Hi Joan thanks for your message. I've been a critical thinker since childhood but never actually considered myself an atheist. I've actually decided that's what I consider myself not so long ago! I do watch a lot of stuff about evolution but I feel like a bit of a noob among a group of self-proclaimed atheists! So hard to find that in real life!

I'm still getting the lay of the land, so to speak.

Thanks for the welcome, Joan.
