jay H replied to Joan Denoo's discussion FerFAL: Understanding Societal Collapse Warnings we should heed from Venezuela's crisis
"It was just 3 years ago that Salon had a gushing article about Venezuela and how it would change our perception of how a socialist society can live. Yup. Once the government ran out of the money it stole from the oil companies and destroyed the…"
jay H replied to tom sarbeck's discussion America's founding moment brought a society newly freed from religion. What went wrong?
"While some of the early founders were skeptical, many were religious secularists -- people who had a religion but wanted a secular government to avoid one religion getting power. This was the primary reason for the religious component of the 1st…"
jay H commented on Donald R Barbera's blog post CROTCH WATCH: NORTH CAROLINA & SOUTH CAROLINA
"Michael Penn:. There is a sudden fear that people are disguising themselves to appear as what they are not. This situation has existed all along, but it was possible to legally remove voyeurs and others (and that has frequently happened). The…"
jay H replied to Joan Denoo's discussion Difference between beliefs of one religion and another is more than difference between an atheist and a theist
"This is quite true. It is also why atheism will generally be an 'outside' group, Our frame of reference is quite different, so understandably people are not comfortable with us."
jay H replied to Henry McLeod's discussion Is it worth leaving the country for religious tolerance?
"One more thought: It's not that easy to just move to another country. Many 'desirable' countries have immigration policies that are much more restrictive than the US (and more restrictive than Donald). It can be a years long project,…"
jay H replied to Henry McLeod's discussion Is it worth leaving the country for religious tolerance?
"You need to differentiate between family rejection and general tolerance. No matter where you live, if your family is an overall intolerant group, than your experience wouldn't have been much different. No matter where you go, you will have to…"

"Heheh. Other people do this too? {BTW it's entirely possible to be for legal and against illegal immigration, indeed many (legally admitted) Cubans as well as Mexicans feel that way. It's primarily the Democrats who refuse to make a…"
jay H replied to Qiana-Maieev's discussion Expelled if You Have a Gay Sibling
"It's a private, RELIGIOUS school. If they wish to isolate themselves like that, it should be their privilege. People know the restrictions when they sign up like many other organizations of all types. How many people here are on Facebook? Did…"
jay H replied to James's discussion Bathroom Controversy
"I think you may have it backwards. Separation of the genders and using clothing and 'modesty' to separate genders is far more widespread (but not universal) across cultures than the Genesis account. Probably the Genesis account sought to…"

jay H replied to James's discussion Bathroom Controversy
"I agree with you that offering private facilities is a good option. Unfortunately that is interpreted in the current clime as treating some 'differently' and that seems to be verboten, no matter that it is indeed sensible. The Charlotte…"

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
