I’m with you Ms_McS. Being retired, my evening TV shows is the only way I keep track of what day it is! 😁 The TV doesn’t come on until the five o’clock or later news. And there are nights that don’t have anything of interest on (what DVD’s and streaming are for). But I love AGT, NCIS, The Code in the new season line up. No TV snob here!!

Like saying “god damn!” or “Jesus Christ!” when you stub your toe or screw up as an Atheist. It really has no meaning, just a habitual swear word.”Cunt” falls under the same category.

Cheeto can do anything he wants at this point. The Russians helped put him in office, he did everything he could to obstruct the investigation, he has worked outside the law most of his life and never held to account. Why would he feel any compulsions to not threaten and harass. He was just told as President he cannot even be indicted and the House is tied up in knots trying to come up with enough evidence to even start an impeachment.

Are you kidding? A roller coaster stock market for those behind the scenes is as good as winning the lottery! Get everybody all excited with juiced up economic numbers, sell your stocks on the crest, then create turmoil with trade disputes, fabricated fears, stocks go down. Go on a buying spree, settle everything, get the good news out and they sail back up so you can sell and reap the profits. Thump loves buying in a distressed market, he announced that back in 2008.

Barnie2years comments on May 25, 2019:
In doing research on taking my pup to Canada for a visit I discovered that while they only require the dogs to have all the major vaccinations, they have regulations against bringing Pitbulls and their mix breeds into the country. There are many cities in the US where they are forbidden as well. While that’s a shame for people who own well behaved ones, and I understand that they are fiercely loyal dogs and very protective, as you point out, when they go rogue they are ferocious killers of whatever they target.

Barnie2years comments on May 24, 2019:
Ultimately, you have to respect your grandmother's wishes. Watching a slow dying process is difficult, but at least it allows you to say your goodbyes. Those who die suddenly, in an accident or a health issue, there is always the feeling of not having said how you feel or being able to express your feelings while they can still hear you. As hard as it is, if you have her under hospice care, they generally have the person sedated and minimize their pain, unlike the treatments which are only designed to keep the body alive, not pain free. Watching death is not an easy thing, I watched my 15 month old son die from complications with leukemia, it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. But know she will be comforted by your presence if you choose to be by her side, and don't feel bad if for some reason you are not there when she doesn't take that last breath, as long as you left her know how much you care before she takes it.

Barnie2years comments on May 20, 2019:
The wonderful thing about religion is it’s total lack of standards. The Bible, having been a compilation of centuries of legends, tales and mysticism, lends itself to untold interpretations. Basically, you can read into whatever you like and any con artist can find gullible people they can convince that their interpretation is the true one. It allows every tribe, from the Amish to the snake handlers and everything in between to think they are the chosen and the only ones with the moral high ground. Are there non believers who don’t favor abortion? Of course! But the issue isn’t what you believe, it is the right of women to decide their body and how it is used. Anything else just relegates them to incubators. Life begins at birth. But the religious argument the every fertilized egg is sacred was the same argument used for years to forbid male masturbation: every sperm is sacred and possibly life producing. Except for some branches, most Christians have abandoned that ideology, but certainly not all of them. The best explanation was done by Monty Python in the Meaning of Life. https://youtu.be/fUspLVStPbk

Is depression more common in people people with higher IQ?
Barnie2years comments on May 18, 2019:
If you’re foolish enough to believe in a deity and an after life, perhaps it’s easier to deal with the issues of life. It’s one of the reasons for religion in the first place: keeping people at the bottom of the economy, and those suffering infirmities, content with their status in the expectation that their next one will be better. Those smart enough to not accept the fairytales are forced to deal with life as it is and a constant drive to improve their life. Failure to do that can leave you depressed and feeling hopeless if you are prone to those issues. It is to a certain extent genetic I believe as well.

Nothing wrong with being introspective, but my guess is that you will come to the same conclusion.

Guess we should get rid of all them too. I would also point out that the Puritans were torturing women they thought were witches and killing them, why did we let them stay. All kinds of ways to respond that are simply pointing out the obvious and won't faze anyone who feels like your aquaintance anyway. But it's good to bring things up, unless it's someone you are close too and would rather sneak up on the suject over a longer time period.

Barnie2years comments on May 5, 2019:
A coworker of mine was working a Lyft gig at a large college town. She picked up a group of dark skinned guys talking a foreign language. One of them said Allah Akbar and suddenly she was in a panic that she had a car full of terrorists and was considering calling the cops. I, and several others explained to her it was simply a Muslim greeting much the same as she would say “God bless you” (she is very Christian). Amazing how much things change when someone from a different religious ethnic group does exactly what you do everyday to non believers. It suddenly becomes a thing to fear and makes you feel threatened.

I agree with the other people who say we are born with both and which one dominates is both genetic and learned, both by experience (if a dog bites you when you are little, you will probably hate dogs) and through teaching (if you were raised in a racist family with little interaction with other cultures and people, chances are you will he a hateful racist). Same with love, it’s there, just has to be nurtured, especially if it is not the dominant emotion.
What’s your opinion on open carry?
Barnie2years comments on Apr 13, 2019:
Is open carry worse than concealed carry? If the person has a gun on his belt, visible to everyone, you are going to be watching their every move. With concealed carry, you are not going to know they have it, so if they have bad intentions you get less time to react. In Pennsylvania anyone can open carry. To legally carry concealed you need a permit, which is easily obtained as long as you don’t have a felony record. Just remember, if someone has bad intentions, the person carrying open will be the first target, or the person who saves the day. I never open carry, don’t want the attention.

Barnie2years comments on Apr 12, 2019:
Trump is not the disease, he is just the most visible symptom. Republican trolls who constantly post that Obama started the racism are right in a manner of speaking. The election of a black man to the presidency scared the large minority of racists in this country into organizing and getting their hateful messages out to recruit more fearful white supremists into their ranks. And Trump’s announcement of his presidential run which trashed immigrants touched right to the heart of their hatred and let them know they could elect one of their own to the lead the country, even though no one actually thought he could win. But dirty deals, huge money, voter suppression, division in the Democratic Party put this Orange Buffoon into office. If the Democrats can’t coalesce behind one candidate and one primary message, Trump just might get four more years to totally bankrupt the country, not only financially, but morally.

Barnie2years comments on Mar 26, 2019:
A study of the ebb and flow of religiosity would take volumes and still be incomplete due to great gaps in written history and the understanding of the events and societies at various times of cataclysmic changes in spirituality. On more recent histories, the French Revolution, where the God anointed Royals were put to the guillotine by the masses fed up with their religiously prescribed lot comes to mind. In the East, the Russian Orthodoxy is making somewhat of a comeback after decades of suppression under Communism (again, the people’s uprising against the supposedly God appointed Czar and royalty) and current leaderships embrassing of the religion for its own purposes. In the grand scheme of things, religion has always been used as a means to control the masses by those who lead them. The Christian faith and bible were not widespread until the Roman Cesar, I believe Constantine (too lazy to look it up) decided to consolidate various Christian texts into one which would give him the “Godly ordained” power to rule over his Empire. It was such a great rendition of these texts that it has held more or less ever since. Right sadly until this very present time, with Evangelicals belief that Trump was chosen by their God to lead the United States back into its God ordained place in the world.

Kind of like putting graffiti, not always good, on the sides of a beautiful mansion that you can never remove without destroying the walls.

I used to think of Atheists as Fundamentalists non-believers, ie, radical. So for years I preferred to refer to my non belief as Agnostic. I have since realized that Atheists, like most other personal beliefs, come in astronomical varieties, from the militant to the closeted. So I now proudly assume the Atheists designation and as a sidebar, have become somewhat more critical of the religious stranglehold in this country. Even more so since The Orange Diety assumed office and takes the country down the sewer hole of theocracy.
Atheism is just another religion. Here’s why: 1. You spend too much time thinking about the ...

Only someone who has no idea what Atheism is, has never really been around non believers, and been brainwashed by his religion would even put forth such an ignorant list of things Atheists never do. It's the equivalent of saying motorcycle riding is a religion, or exercising is a religion. Thanks for the chuckle! ?

What a bunch of claptrap. I am 67 years old and still find it amazing that people can read this kind of spew and entertain the idea that it matters. The author of this article is just the Christian version of the Taliban, so insecure in their belief that they fear any humor directed at their “savior.” Sadly, they have enough followers as to allow them to become very wealthy, all tax free. The only requirement to make that money is to keep your believers in total fear and make them believe you have the best way for them to enjoy life...after they die.
A beautifully wonderful end to the day ❀ my life!

Barnie2years comments on Mar 18, 2019:
From the Daily Beast: In a Military Times poll of more than 1,000 active-duty troops, nearly one in four said they had seen white nationalism in the military. Forty-two percent of non-white respondents said they had personally experienced white nationalism in the military, as opposed to only 18 percent of white respondents. Thirty percent of all respondents said white nationalists posed a significant threat to national security, more than Syria, which only 27 percent of respondents described as a national security threat. Nearly 5 percent of respondents wrote comments complaining that groups like Black Lives Matter should have been included as national security threats, the Military Times reported.

What’s old is new again! This was the way children were transported in one form or another, for centuries. Then someone designed baby buggies and strollers, not to mention the 60 lb jobs women used to kill themselves trying to get in the bus, generally with the baby in the seat. We used carriers like this, then backpacks when my son get bigger. They love the body contact and the views, way better than being at ground level.
I need comedy right now. Please feel free to post anything that has recently made you laugh.

An unfortunate truth in our society

Sadly, as societies evolve, this is pretty standard, until those at the bottom rise up and revolt. Or the social structure collapses because of the greed. Our time is coming.

They are his followers. To them he is the second coming, no matter how flawed, because he is the only one promising to do away with the Constitution and replace it with a theocracy run by oligarchs. Dedicated believers are the easiest to manipulate. That’s why in Russia the Orthodox Church has cemented ties with Putin. If you can believe the fantasy of an invisible entity, it’s a small step to believe he chose your leader. And the bond between religion and politics serves both very well.

Sadly, with his issues, he will try to drag you back in every time you try to move on. You don’t mention if he has violent tendencies. If he does, that can make the returning dangerous, not just a mistake. You have your work cut out for you and some serious choices for your own well being to think about.
