Currently living on disability SSDI. Working part time with autistic children. #CHANGE Published my first novel on Amazon - Reestablishing a Friendship: A Ghost Story. Now working on publishing poems. Then, a non fiction work on Taoist thought
I've been an English teacher; counselor; lots of life experiences; various other jobs and even Navy time. Three grown kids - all great and educated. I believe math and rules. I even believe I can argue language is in its lowest form binary. I read; I write; I like hiking, but haven't done many this summer. Currently spending a lot if time in the area.

1,000 Years Ago, the Catholic Church Didn’t Care If You Were Gay - [gayety.co]
Beowulfsfriend comments on Apr 17, 2019:
Much of the "new testament" was written by more Greek and Roman "influenced" writers of their time. So, of course, no need to mention homosexuality. Also, the Catholic church didn't edict suicide as a mortal sin until later due to the number of priests opting out to get to their heavenly reward sooner: the world was a figurative and litereral shit hole to live in.

Doing well on the LSAT has not shown to be a good indicator as to how someone will perform in law school. However, and do to many factors, 60 percent of minorities will do poorly while only 30 percent of white testers do poorly. So, it may not be the test so to speak, but societal actions that preclude it from being a worthwhile test.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Apr 12, 2019:
You know, I pretty much think people deserve choice in their life- and that guy has choice - find a new job or shave, as per the regulations of work. I would love to smoke some pot, but, can't do it for jobs: F the law, should be legal, but I respect that some jobs you just can't do it. The guy can most likely move, as I would guess there are places out there that don't require shaving. When in the Navy, we could have beards and I had one - so much easier to deal with and a water saver at sea. That said, had we gone to war and there had been a chance of an attack on my ship, much of that beard would have come off. I have read that the new masks will fit tight with beards though.

I don't remember, so I'm asking - did any of the Presidents apologize for the genocide of Natives? Oh yea, Obama did.
