You must be some kind of commie socialist to complain about the Amerikan system of feudal lords. In Japan, another quite capitalist system, this wouldn't happen. There, during bad times the first to take pay cuts are management.

To the max, in most professions. So glad the law changed for mandatory reporters - years ago I reported a sex offense from a teacher to a student (I left teaching ten years ago for social work). Anyway, the boss yelled at me until I told him to shut up and walked out, reminding him i was following the law.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 22, 2018:
@Maggiemay. Just to note as my previous comment referenced, what they fly is not the "stars and bars" as many have just accepted that misnomer. They are flying the battle flag of the army if northern Virginia, Lee's army. That flag flew over the Southern capital for only a few months. Note - it's heritage is really bullshit, we have no fucking idea. The stars and bars is also red white blue with a circle of stars. Stared with 11 for the States that rebelled, then added 2 stars for Arkansas and Kentucky for the many traitors who went south to fight. The worst thing Clinton ever did as governor, give in for political favor, was add an extra star to the Arkansas flag for the confederacy. (And just in case, any cons wanting to storm the Clinton fence LOOK LOOK LOOK, everyone does some shit and be honest about the shitasses you support)
Well, I guess it is good to know that the US is not alone in the problems we're having.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 22, 2018:
Yep. (It's heritage you wouldn't understand). That phrase does so piss me off. I ask them three questions and find a miniscule number who can get past these three easy to answer "heritage" questions. Just what does the Bars and Stars look like? That flag you are flying, what is its origin story? Or the one that I have gotten, no shit, the most ridiculous answers (duh, 13 colonies), Why does it have 13 stars? Then when they try to counter punch with bullshit, I say, my Great grandfather Eli Greer fought for the Confederacy. Glad he lived. Glad he owned no slaves. And, most assuredly, glad he lost. They were traitorous. And, although I could join the so called son's of the confederacy, there is no way because unlike stupid asses in t-shirts, I know my heritage.

U.S. Child Gun Deaths: Firearms Are Second Biggest Killer in America
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 22, 2018:
This is an area that gun rights advocates have failed miserably. I have a put forth a proposition and haven't any takers: I'll accept going back to 60's standards for gun ownership if others will go back to 60's standards for gun safety and responsibility. Back then, we didn't hear the line - tragic accidents. Someone got shot, some one paid. People were held responsible. Self defense better damn sight have been necessary; a kid died, and parents or the responsible party went to jail for manslaughter or were heavily fined. Pretty simple to me. Why people who love guns won't accept that gives me pause to wonder. I no longer own a gun. Had my first one at 13. I'm here, on this site, because I believe in science and math. Statistics are clear: owning a gun does not make you safer. It is that simple.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 21, 2018:
Uhhhhhh. Too many people would need to maintain silence. I served in military intelligence and even there, where silence was golden and those who spoke up were shunned, many, if not most would refuse an illegal order and take it up the chain of command. At higher levels, that chain leaks like a sieve.
Trying to select a good January adventure. I'm voting for Antarctica.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 21, 2018:
I wanted to go to Antarctica in the late 70's early 80's. Tried to get stationed there in the military. People say why, and I say because at the time no one ever went but a very few. Now they have regular boat tours, and the tourists are messing the place up by polluting it. I vote don't go there. There are some really beautiful places in Africa, away from the strife and the city poverty, and the overrun touristy areas.

Can someone advise me on how to live with a muslim family who'll absolutely shun me if I tell them ...
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 21, 2018:
Much like a Christian or Hindu or other religious family, the advice will be similar: you are, unfortunately, in for years of a mess most likely. Either, you hide your true feelings and suffer internally and especially mentally and intellectually, or you tell those around you and they surprise you and accept although not approve of your decision, this is least likely to occur, or they freak out and the consequences are pretty much as you expect, which can range from hurt and worry to being shunned. Everyone lives in a different situation and I don't know your personal family setting. Living with it, depending on your age, etc may be tolerable for the time being, however, I think st some point you will most likely need to face it or move away from it, as many in your situation do. Meeting someone or just wanting to be with like minded individuals, etc will make staying very difficult. I would suggest not facing this alone. Finding someone you trust to speak one on one about the issue could be extremely difficult, albeit I believe helpful. Don't go to family members, no matter how liberal, unless they, too, are out. And don't talk to members of, in your case, you family's mosque. Maybe work, school, outside eith an independent mental health or social counselor. I say mental health knowing this isn't because you have a mental health issue, but the stress from this issue can affect your mood and such. Best wishes my friend.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 20, 2018:
They don't seem to have a clue. But then, neither do so many young Mormons out gospelizing. Ask them about being a regular murderer, in the Mormon church as opposed to an equally staunch evangelical one (Mormons claim murder is an unpardonablle sin, some will as it is church doctrine, while most avoid the topic or don't understand themselves). BTW, now that you have become friendly, do they know your full name? If you pass away, they, and the Mormon church, can write down your name in their book/list and pray you into heaven. You may remember a number of years ago the Church was holding an organized "pray in" for all the jews for whom they had names (millions) killed in the Holocaust to get into Mormon heaven. Many Jewish people got upset and made a fuss. I found the whole incident ridiculously funny.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 19, 2018:
The not eating certain water animals in Leviticus should cover beaver, but the Catholic Church issued a dispensation for Catholics in the Americas to eat them and muscrats because the lent probation of meat allows animals that swim in the water. To this day, during Lent, especially in Louisiana and parts of Canada, beaver barbeques are popular. I've eaten some strange things, but no beaver or muskrat.

A student came by. A real sweetheart of a guy, every father's dream son in law, handsome, kind, athelete, etc. Anyway, he asked if my friend (also male) could help him with a dilemma. We said that we would try. He was A senior. He said he was dating a stripper (luckily neither my friend Nor i said what we were thinking). We asked him the problem. She wanted to have sex; he was saving himself for marriage. My friend and I looked at each other and at the same time said, uh, sorry, but, we can't advise you on that one.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 19, 2018:
I agree that you need to be kind to yourself. Your suffering was not your fault, not one bit, none of it. As for forgiving your mother, simply don't allow filial guilt to make you do it. If you never do forgive, so be it, your reasons are valid. I would add my vote to seeking out professional help. Whether it be individual or group therapy, either, depending on the person, can be helpful. There is nothing wrong with sharing on an open and annonomous forum either. For depression, I have used depression. com. I still, also, see someone on occasion. Time is a good healer, but it can be a long, slow process with setbacks. I wish you the best. Please, take care of yourself. You are an important life.

I think yes. Unlike a Pulitzer which is for a single work, the Noble celebrates a lifetime. His songs, msny, especially the earliest stuff, are very poetic. All these awards are subjective; although granted with the science awards the winner needs,to have done something important, or new, and broadened knowledge. There have been awards, even in science, that in retrospect were poor choices. I think Dylan's award will stand the test of time. Possibly some one else may have been a "better" or as good as a choice. But Dylan, as you even state qualified. All subjective - not his best the last 30 years but some good stuff. Look up other literary award winners and see how many were excellent their entire lives.

Someday I may tell the story of risking my job: closed my door and went off to my students, who were smart enough to question a speaker's legitimacy, on the bullshit of a speaker who said condoms were not only an a front to god but wouldn't stop AIDS because little microscopic "thingies" could get through.
At a teen's funeral, a priest condemned suicide and 'basically called our son a sinner,' mother says...

That suicide going to hell bullshit really pisses me off. I'll stay calm, just know I've dealt with a grieving mother who was told that fucking shit. I could have beaten an old bastard at the time and my blood still boils over it.

The last couple years I've seen drive through ash Wednesday ashings. I wouldn't be surprised to see drive through Santa's popping up. Oh and, ugh, I saw Ubber Eats now delivers McDonald's.
5 Things People Get Wrong About Homelessness | HuffPost
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 16, 2018:
That is an excellent article and should be mandatory reading. Needs to be broadcast on all media until it is beaten into the thoughtless masses. I do believe it has one thing incorrect, but that is something that can't be known for sure; I believe and other studies have shown that their number of homeless is a lot higher.

With the addendum: except republicans.
People who don't understand these terms use them to weaponize their uneducated arguments.

Thank you. Sick of dumbasses who have no concepts and think I'm an evil communist. Ha. I spied on the communists in the cold war. They hate hearing: on paper communism is a great idea, BUT due to human nature it will always fall into some form of dictatorial state. Or, without FDR's socialist reforms the U.S. was in danger of turning even more violent during the late 20's and early 30's. And you can really piss off evangelicals when you remind them that it was liberal minded, socialist evangelicals that helped pull the US out of the great depression.
Bet you didn't know this....

Yep. And the military classified her inventions so she couldn't sue for patent infringement and thus she wasn't paid for the items she invented in WWII.

How can Chik Fil A claim a religious position. They have cows that write messages to kill chickens. Evolutionary marvels.

I had a student once tell me she was going to be a drug dealer. I feel "a little" bad as I made her cry. I didn't come into education right out of high school. Did other stuff including the military, etc. And I've been down the drug route. I told her she would get eaten up and spit out. Her facade of black clothing didn't hide a naive young women who would be taken advantage of.
My wife's family are all avid snow skiers. So I sent this to them. Amazingly positive responses!
