About Me:
I am an 82-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 evolved from faith in superstition to behavioral scientist. I am a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Spokane's Providence Health & Services and Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute.
Life is meant to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it.
I bring to my community a worldliness that challenges attitudes and norms of a parochial and insular power structure. I traveled to 32 nations in the Western, Eastern, Northern and Southern Hemispheres interviewing women about their family and work lives, their health care, education, social structure, child and elder care, depression, and anxiety, and family violence. I had to be subtle when seeking information about violence. People do not like to reveal their vulnerabilities.

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.  

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…

Joan,

Wow did I have some very negative experiences. The eighties was not the time to let people know you didn’t believe in god. I had troubles with girlfriends, and all friends. I was popular in College. I was a DJ, but many people tried to get me to convert. Told me I was going to hell. Some fights even. I know Taekwondo so no problems there. It’s getting better every decade. Finding the millennial’s are non-believers. I think I came out too early. It caused me a lot of problems. It’s ashamed. I just don’t know, but I know I don’t believe in a 2,000 year old book. Thanks for letting me in. I will maybe set up a blog.

GoodMorning, Joan. Thank you for the welcome. I’m embarrassed to admit, but I just figured out how to reply & can’t find the comment from the email. I will have to figure out how to use this site. Im excited to meet new like minded people,

Thanks for the welcome, Joan. It often seems to be the case that fantasies and delusions encroach more severely upon one's mind as one ages, especially those fantasies pertaining to "life everlasting". But for me, the opposite has been true. I'm much less tolerant of delusion now than I was when I was young. At least, I think I am. I wouldn't really know, would I? :-(

Joan, despite a change looks, your smile is the same. And, of course, your insights and wisdom continues to shine through your comments. Stick with us. Losing Daniel was hard enough. We'd hate to lose you. What Loren said about you goes for me.

Well you're my favorite curmudgeon, Joan.

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.
