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!  I'm not that active on here but try to poke my head in every once in a while.  :)

Hi Joan, 

   Do you know of any Conservative Atheists in your area?

I know of only two in my area.  They are young men in their twenties, who are Liberarian Atheists.  Nice guys, but not always easy with which to talk.

   I do not communicate through social media in a regular, consistent manner.  I do better via telephone, or in person.  It seems, to put what I want to say in writing, takes me four times longer than to speak it.  So I tell my friends, "If your topic is time sensitive, tell me, and I will check with more frequency."  And now you know too.

   We are experiencing are first couple of thirty degree days of the Autumn.  It will bounce back up to the fifties in the next day or so.  I have my yard tucked in for the winter.  How is your place?

Sheri

That was quick.

Fair play.

OK. Raised RCC and it still remains a mystery to me why or how my long dead parents managed to raise four heathens given they were, in fact devout RCC. Being, as I am, Irish, an atheist Irish man is somewhat of an isolate position. A majority here are what I would term functional atheists but nobody wants to admit that, in a fit of denial. Few will actually 'fess up to the reality. Thus, I reach out to other like minded folks at will.

Here's the link to my "How to Do It" post on putting up videos.  Problem is: YouTube has changed their layout (AGAIN!!!), though the SHARE link is pretty easy to find.  The problem is that, so far as I can tell, they don't offer automated sizing when generating the embed code, so you have to do it by hand.

The default width looks to be 560 and the height is 315 in their code.  Change these to 385 and 217, respectively when you're putting code into the comment section of a group and you should be in shape.  The larger size works for posts and "root" comments on posts.  If you have any further problems, please give a shout.

You appear to be having some problems posting to the new Quotations group, Joan.  Wassup?

Thanks, Joan. It is funny, but in all my years as a theist, I never had a clearly defined purpose for my life. This, despite working as an actor, a magician, and an author. Suddenly, without the pressure of fulfilling some "divine purpose," I realized my aim in life is to bring joy to people. It has been for a long time. I just couldn't see it.

Hi Joan,

Here's a link to an article from the newspaper "The Oregonian" about meth.

Here's a link to an article from the newspaper "The Oregonian" about meth.

Frontline has a good documentary about the meth epidemic

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVpyX9UP-Kw

My understanding is that pharmacutical labs in India send the base material to Mexican drug labs by the 50 gallon barrel. 

Is meth still a problem , or has it been kept under controll?
