Did a lot of moving growing up (not an army brat, an executive brat). I spent 10 years in Europe 1959/68. I still speak fluent French. It also gave me a chance to grow up without much church influence. Mom was devout, but not enough to go to a French church. Thankfully, by the time we got to Switzerland, where they had an American church, I was too scepital to be sucked in. Dad was kind of agnostic anyway, so if he skipped church, my sister and I usually didn’t have to go either.

Barnie2years comments on Nov 17, 2019:
For most of my life I seldom had dreams, let alone nightmares, that I remembered or was aware of. When I had my heart issue almost two years ago, the doctor put me on several medications such as statin, Plavix and another blood thnner. Ever since I have been on these medications I have wild and vivid dreams pretty much nightly. They are not really nightmares, but can be exhausting, since most of them involve being chased, chasing, frustrations, and other activities that leave me waking up in a sweat or exasperated. And I can even get up and go to the bathroom sometimes and go right back into the dream when I return to bed. I tried not taking one medication at a time for five days to see if it made a difference, but it didn't. The only good thing is there are occasional sexy dreams, that though they leave me frustrated, give me a bit of joy too!

Given some of the horrible generalizations of Millennials and Gen -Z I have seen on FB, can’t really blame them for the blowback. I defend them as my stepson is a fantastic kid and his friends as well. Much better than I was, and I was in no way a bad kid. But I had a lot of freedom and took advantage. As mentioned by several on this post, the Hippy generation turned into the Yuppie generation. Just as greedy and consumer driven as our parents for the most part. My parents didn’t get all bent out of shape when the social networks of Look and Time magazine were quoting our generation as not trusting anyone over 30 and rejection of our parents moral standards. These things pass and life goes on. Not going to fret about the new generation dissing on me,. The circle of life continues.

Barnie2years comments on Oct 25, 2019:
The tendency to lump people together because of single factors in their life is a human failure more than anything else. It is what permits horrendous actions against "the others" in the name of "us". Be it religion belief or lack thereof, race, sexual preference, or any other factor. In the end we are all individuals prone to our own foibles brought on by genetics, the environment we grew up in, the choices in life we made. I have seen Amish in porn shops and hanging around men's rooms, I knew an Amish woman who was molested by her father. Obviously being Catholic is no more a sign of a child mollester than being Luthern. But as humans we always want to lump people into whatever tribe that we fear or love the most, to our own detriment.

Love PBS! Opinions are not just innocent escapes of gas or words! They far too often have consequences. Trump’s opinions often stir racial hatred, just as Hiller’s opinions resulted in millions of people being rounded up and gassed. European opinions that people with darker skin were less than human resulted in slavery, extermination of natives in both North and South America and most of Asia being subjugated to white European rule. So anyone who says everyone is entitled to their opinion and free to express is a Liberal looking to lose their rights to their own opinions. The Far Right is not so open to that whole idea.

Barnie2years comments on Oct 23, 2019:
You can’t let it bother you! In this day and age of descent into tribalism, any feeling you express, any facts you present, opinions you hold, will set somebody or some group off. It doesn’t matter what they call themselves (Christian, Atheist, Satanist, Buddhist), they will jump on one word, one phrase, and find something to be offended about. And thanks to the Internet, they have lots of targets and unrestricted forums to verbally attack anyone they don’t agree with. I often leave stupid posts up, here and on Facebook, because I know that the majority of readers probably agree with me. And even if they don’t, the attack tends to be so off the wall it reflects more on the issues of the writer than it does on my feelings. And my thoughts are certainly well founded enough that some pissant with a grudge is not going to ruin my day. Even if I do take the time to respond, I know there is little chance of changing their mind, so I don’t waste a lot of time other than perhaps to clarify my thoughts for other readers. Life is too short to worry about trolls and blockheads.

After three years in a French public school I spent most of my time in International schools and with English speaking friends. Came back to the States at 17 and have had little use for my French since. And yet I can hold an adult conversation with French people I meet, can watch and mostly understand French language movies and have several French friends I stay in touch with online through written French, with only very occasional use of Google Translate. Has nothing to do with god, everything to do with you being attuned to recognizing a French accent or showing interest in someone foreign. If you spoke Polish or Slovak or any other language, chances are you would run into some of them and start a conversation just for fun.

George Conway: Trump Is Unfit for Office - The Atlantic
Barnie2years comments on Oct 7, 2019:
That is long! Conway is obviously a lawyer. Everything he states was clear to see long ago, but the Republicans chose to ignore it. If the Electoral College was designed for any purpose, it was to protect the country from popularly electing a con man by overriding the popular vote. It failed in its duty. The 25th Amendment will fail because of fear of retaliation. Impeachment will fail in the long run, not just because the Republicans in the Senate will not vote on it, but because by the time the House goes through the process the 2020 election cycle will be in full progress and unless Trump goes completely off the rails, people won’t care as they put all effort into electing a better president. What a messed up time we live in, but such is the cycle of life.

After reading the answers on here, I am not sure you have any better answer than you had before. So, I will throw my two cents in. I often consider myself a “realist” as much as an Atheist. Which means that I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about what I can’t prove, can’t see and doesn’t have any bearing on my life. Whether a “god” exists or not, I have seen no indication of it, it has no effect on my life, I have no fear of death because it is inevitable regardless of what you believe. Nobody has yet taken a picture of billions of humans who have died running around in heaven or hell. No pictures of winged people flying around protecting people. In wartime, most people on both sides pray, they die randomly anyway, not based on how many times they attended church or temple or mosque. If you are going to question that which is not seen and unprovable, what is your take on extraterrestrials? There are far more sightings, testimonials, and archeological evidence they exist or existed than what is available for proving a god. Or ghosts? Many people can testify they have experienced them. Where do you draw the line of what to believe and what not? By the numbers of people who favor that belief. The Abrahamic religions, taken as a group, certainly have the numbers. But some of that is due to the fact that they were great at killing off the competition! 😄

👍🧚‍♀️ Here’s a little fairy for your birthday! She can’t work her magic until it actually is your birthday. Which means she will be in a holding pattern for the next month! You have so many gifts already; good looks, a good mind, a loving family, good health and a great sense of humor. It will take the fairy (let’s call her Betty!) at least a month to get that world peace thing going. And perhaps she can provide the House some help with their impeachment work as a great gift as well!

Given that he is running the most corrupt government in modern history, this is laughable. But then many people thought Hitler was just a funny guy in his early years.

You have to realize there is a theory out there espoused by certain men that directness is the best way to achieve a goal. In the world of sales it is taught that the law of averages says that the more “no’s” you get, the closer you are to a “yes”. In sales classes I attended this idea was carried over to the pickup world. That manifests itself in the idea that if you go up to enough women and ask them if they would like to give you a blow job, though you may get your face smacked or yelled at 95% of the time, at some point you will meet up with one of the 5% who will say yes. That, according to the theory makes it worth the effort. Seems your fellow falls into that mindset, and with online dating, the fear of physical violence makes it much less painful to test the theory. And easier, since you can broadcast your slime over a much wider audience. Sadly, for the same reason telemarking and phone scams work, this approach at some point probably does too. I know some pretty creepy dudes that have a lot more success in the dating pool than me, that’s for sure.

Wait, wait! We have to give the president time to destroy all the relevant documents! Does anyone remember Reagan and Oliver North’s mad dash to shred all documents relevant to illegally supplying arms to Nicaraguayen rebels? Nixon I am sure would have liked more time to burn the tapes or at least add more blank spaces.

I would be happy if all political ads which do anything beyond profiling the candidate, their positions, experience and priorities were banned. Negative ads should not be allowed at all on any platform.

Much of religion is based on fear. They use love to try and cover it over, but the driving force is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of death, fear of being alone. The human need of tribalism, fear of “the other.” All are used to indoctrinate children into the fold of whatever the religious beliefs of their parents happen to be. As we grow older, we develop our own sense of need. Some leave their faith for stronger ones, cults if you will, out of fear that the one they were in had it wrong. Some go the other way and find more liberal believers to follow. And some like you just question what it is you believe but can’t accept the idea of nothing out of fear of being wrong. I had a friend who said he believed because he could not accept the idea that life on earth is finite, humans being the wonderful species we are. That there had to be more! Even my Dad, who I’m sure was an Agnostic even though he never stated it directly, as he neared the end, was hedging his bets and showing a religious side. You know, just in case. That is how deeply ingrained the idea was in his childhood. Speaking for myself, I am an Atheist. I went through many years when things in my life seemed too odd to be just random events or coincidence. So I espoused “fate” as propelling people’s lives to their “destinies.” The problem with that is fate and destiny require a master to orchestrate, which of course leads you back to a god. Then in watching the movie Butterfly Effect there was a short extra feature on the Chaos Theory as it relates to life. (The movie itself was not that great. I am not an Aston Krutcher fan. The earlier French version I though was better by far, called Happenstance I believe.) This theory explained to me exactly why things happen, sort of. They are not random, and not controlled by some invisible puppet master as in fate, and certainly not subject to change by human prayer, which I consider to be the equivalent and as useful as wishing. No, the things that happen in your life are created by not only decisions and actions that you yourself make, but by those made by millions of others all the time! This is a very simplified version of the theory and would probably take a book to explain exactly the thoughts behind it. But it was the time I pretty much became a certified Atheist. And I will remain one until the day someone will show me with photos, a map and introduction exactly where heaven is, who god is and where all the billions of people who have died over the eons of human existence are stored. 😄 Sorry, I ran on, don’t get to talk about this much.

Now that you are out of Shawn’s grasp, stay out. Expect him to try and lure you back at some point. Don’t! Be cautious if you still have things to move. Drugs, alcohol and religion create some very dangerous people.

I find this stuff so sad. Shows to a degree how little we as a species have evolved from our cave dwelling ancestors.
