Donald R Barbera replied to Joan Denoo's discussion Did the American Revolution produce significant benefits for women, native Americans, blacks, propertyless white males, and indentured servants? in the group Hang With Friends
"I will say the only people that benefited from the Revolution were white men. Surely, blacks gained nothing except a continued life of slavery. Women? Women were little more than window dressing baby machines.Some women had 19-20 children.…"

GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, BUT THE MOVIE IS—AGAIN

Posted on April 11, 2016 at 9:42pm 19 Comments

Recently, I watched a movie named “God Is Not Dead 2” fully intending to remain neutral although I’d already seen “God’s Not Dead.” The first movie sucked and this one is even worse. It is more propaganda than a movie and the proselytizing is obnoxious. Once again, those poor Christians are…

Thinking is a terrible thing. If done correctly it ought to frighten you and shake you from your comfortable foundations, because it should reveal things, raise questions and challenge your ideas about yourself, your beliefs and the world.

Thanks, Donald, for the link to the music. I like the way you phrased the music appreciation via education. I always seek out your posts.

Thanks, Donald.  Needless to say, I'm the guy with the Brooklyn accent.  Rev Jones is the cowboy and the pompous bombastic asshole is the imam.

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!
