    @jakelafort – I have added a few of your words to my vocab. You have a knack of using uncommon words that are always apt for the statement you make. Using long words at the correct time does not a Sesquipedalian make. So, don’t become pauciloquent, a word you reminded me of not so long ago. (I am sure you won’t ever 😊).

      Thanks for the kind words

      “Meaning is derived through involvement”

      This quote resonates with me.

      @TheEncogitationer

      I agree with you on being a happy warrior and alleviate as much suffering as I can, I hope to someday be a beacon of reason. Religion has screwed up my home country. But first I have to take care of myself.

    • @Jakelafort – Thanks for posting the video. I had not seen it before but was aware of his testament.

      In the book “Diderot and the art of thinking freely”, the author Andrew S. Curran writes that:

      Meslier’s testament maintains that the entire Catholic religion was nothing more than a human invention; that faith is the foundation of error; that…[Read more]

      @jakelafort ” I was not aware of the Gaelic Glen.” It’s actually a generic gaelic suffix “een” . It means ‘little’ or is used as term of endearment. It can also be used as a pejorative. Pretty sure ‘Glen’ is not a gaelic name, but comes from the Irish and Scottish gaelic; ‘gleann’ , a small mountain valley.

      Why can’t it be both a pe…[Read more]

      “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 ch…[Read more]

    • @jakelafort – for some reason that reminded me of a quote by Timothy Leary –

      LSD is a psychedelic drug which occasionally causes psychotic behavior in people who have NOT taken it.”

      About the same time (30 years ago) a neighbor called to my house (5 bedrooms) – which he once called “a den of iniquity” because I kept it as an open house and usu…[Read more]

      I did not say that she sees it as a business transaction,… But at the same time she’s not a dumb bitch. She’s actually super smart. Don’t let her accent fool you. And I heard the story about her that there is almost no major staffing decision that is made without Melania. They were saying that she is the person who chose, or helped…[Read more]

      All I have to go by is what I’ve heard and read about her. But from what I can tell, there’s a lot about her that I’ve come to respect. I could give you lots of examples but for starters: I read somewhere she “renegotiated” her premarital contract with Donald far beyond what any other wife has been able to get. She has HIM by the ba…[Read more]

      But Ivy he asked supremacists to stand by. That is not alarming, right?

      yes it is very alarming. And should be a big glowing red flag in front of everybody’s face. That was a very intentional slight. That was no mistake. He did not stutter. There he is, the so-called leader of the free world or whatever the fuck you want to call i…[Read more]

      My prediction right now, Please Lord May I be wrong: he is pretty much going to lie steal and cheat in every possible way, and use his money and power and connections to fudge the numbers and rig the system to get reelected. He’s going to use the post office as a weapon, and just because people of color will vote for Kamala Harris, d…[Read more]

      @Jakelafort

      You were looking at the situation with an old-school mentality, the problem is the old rules don’t apply anymore. There might be some people that switch over to Joe Biden that voted for Trump before, but in the places where it really counts for the electoral college, I just don’t see it. They might not like trump anymore, but I don…[Read more]

      It’s officially started:

      This white woman Trump supporter on Facebook has this video that’s going viral about how she stepped into a place to vote and they told her she was registered as a Democrat and couldn’t vote.

      So this is what they’re going to do is make people think that somehow the voting isn’t fair…That’s just one of many things…

      @jakelafort

      There were plenty of other women of color that would have been FAR less controversial. You have to realize that there are a LOT of people in this country who will believe almost anything Trump says.

      again I was really rooting for her. But I think he could have done a lot better. There are plenty of women of color he could have chosen…[Read more]

    • @jakelafort – Is there anything in the 14th amendment that prohibits an anonymous federal force from picking random citizens off the streets or am I am I confusing this with another law? It is almost as if habeas corpus has been suspended in parts of Portland.
