Good video Unseen. I had not considered many of those points and to be honest I had forgotten about the severing of ties with the Kurds.November 15, 2020 at 9:16 pm #34419
No, not a good video!
If you keep playing redneck videos you might be a redneck.November 15, 2020 at 9:24 pm #34420November 15, 2020 at 9:26 pm #34421
Can’t get one goddamn reference by you…November 15, 2020 at 9:27 pm #34422
Was particularly peeved ya got Brain Droppings..November 15, 2020 at 9:47 pm #34423
“No, not a good video!
If you keep playing redneck videos you might be a redneck.”
In what sense? Morally? Moot.
Informative and reasonably objective? I thought so, I thought he made a lot of sense.
Now I’m truly not being sarcastic. I would like to understand why you thought the video was not a good one. This is cheese and chalk stuff in terms of opinion. I would appreciate an explanation of your opinion. My agenda is to learn and possibly change my opinion if I have misunderstood so egregiously. If it’s simply a matter of different points of view, I ‘m fins with that.November 15, 2020 at 9:51 pm #34424

You must NOT be a redneck.November 15, 2020 at 10:00 pm #34425
Dan Dennett had a few good Redneck quotes here. The whole video is worth a viewing.November 15, 2020 at 10:13 pm #34426
Glen, Glen is my name also but i don’t like it. Almost got a legal change of name. Are you okay with Glen?
I was making a joke. Reg picked up on the reference..it is a comedian who has a litany of you might be a redneck jokes. I was handicapping as video was playing so i probably missed some stuff. It did seem like prosaic analysis but i did not hear anything that made my hair stand up. Trump has committed so many what would have been major scandals that many of his bad deeds are forgotten. He also withheld military aid in Ukraine as leverage for dope on Biden and cost lives there.November 15, 2020 at 10:25 pm #34427
You might be an atheist if…
(and I don’t mean the semi-serious examples Dennett gives but rather funny ones…jokes a la Foxworthy)

So, what’s wrong with Glen, Glen? and if everything’s Jake with Jake, why is that?November 15, 2020 at 11:01 pm #34430
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. What is a glen? It is a shady nook in the woods. So that is something i love. The woods are lovely dark and deep and i hike in the woods before i sleep. But but but Glen just strikes me as one step above Melvin. Jake on the other hand is a tough guy name. Jake could be a flake-which suits me. It is in the vein of Peter Parker. Jake conveys something powerful and i don’t give shit. I call Jake Tapper, Tap out Tapper. And it is obvious that his name caused him to have an attitude. That guy can come off as a real Jake.November 15, 2020 at 11:57 pm #34432
I was hoping you were joking.
I’m fine with Glen. Also wouldn’t mind the gaelic “Gleneen” which is diminutive/intimate. Has never happened.
My Canadian Mother deliberately gave myself and my brother 4 letter names. This was because of the Aussie habit of messing around with names, sometimes longer, shorter, even a new name entirely. Didn’t work. Eventually it was “Glenie” which I loathe and which will bring out a rather acerbic side of my personality.
I was at school with a kid called ‘Myron’, he was the only Myron I’ve ever met. As soon as he turned 18 he changed his name to John.
I didn’t use “Glen’ in the army.*** I used my middle name ,which is terminally Irish. As is my family name. You can probably imagine how some people honed their alleged wit on that.
***Conscripted, served from 1968 to 1970. –and NO I am NOT a veteran
Count your blessings. (If you’ll excuse the expression)

You might be an atheist if…
…the only soul you have is in your music collection.
…the only spirit you want saved is that bottle of scotch you’ve been savouring slowly.
…the only revelation a burning bush gives you is that you need to go to a clinic.
You might be a Christian if you quote the bible; you might be an atheist if you’ve actually read it.November 16, 2020 at 12:19 am #34435
“You might be a Christian if you quote the bible; you might be an atheist if you’ve actually read it.”
Ironically, too true.
At the catholic boys schools I attended we were actively discouraged from reading the bible, “lest you become confused.” ( I kid you not) I was 16 the time ,so of course I went home and read the entire thing. I soon understood why they thought a sane person might get confused. Genesis? Pickle me grandmother! Do people actually believe that shit? OK New Testament: the four different accounts of the resurrection are enough to confuse anyone***
The Book of Revelations was studiously ignored. It embarrasses Catholics who actually read it. We just pretended it wasn’t part of the canon.
On YouTube yesterday I saw claim the the bible is THE most popular book ever printed, going by sales .
BUT the bible has long been recognised as ‘the least read best seller’. I found this to be true even of happy clappers who have tried proselytise to me over the years.
**The De La Salle brothers who pretended to teach me had the perfect answer for any thing hard or contradictory :
“Oh, that’s a mystery of faith ,we just believe it.” Truly.
