Anybody still collect/listen to vinyl?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 6, 2018:
My long passed buddy had over 2000. He used to bring me plastic covers to protect my albums that he knew had monetary value. All gone in divorce. My baby daughter (30), recently got a player and vinyls and set up an homage corner with Beatle posters, etc
I am venting now,so bear with me.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 6, 2018:
The new thing I have noted is companies actively saying they will not give preferential treatment to veterans, etc. I think some of those companies claiming to do so are doing it out of past pro sentiment that is now waning. Sorry for your loss. Anyone who helps out someone in the end is a good, worthy person. Thank you for your service. And to lighten the mood: as a Navy enlisted and the Army vrs Navy football game upon us, I sometimes am torn between rooting for Navy, and then being in favor of a bunch of elitist officers having their butts whipped by other elitist officers.
A Promising Male Birth Control Trial Is Finally Happening, But Some Women Are Furious
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 5, 2018:
What do the ladies think? It seems a bit off base to complain about a new birth control that frees up women. I've had a vasectomy because It was the safest form of long term permanent birth control. I wonder, do I pass muster having suffered for a week or so?

US reopens 'permanent diplomatic mission' in Somalia [aljazeera.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 5, 2018:
The problems in Somalia are directly linked to the overfishing by European and Asian countries encroaching on their unprotected coastlines. The U.S. became involved because of the rise of first pirates, then Islamic terrorists. It is too bad those who started the problem by robbing the people of their income and food aren't forced by international court to pay restitution. BTW thank you for your service. I briefly visited there in 80 while in the Navy. Back then all the East African nations I visited loved us.

Everyone is fucked and I see little hope. Just tonight NPR was saying that one in four health care workers and doctors are foreign born. I welcome that. Still, one of the reasons is the cost of education and the destruction of multiple generations saddle with huge debts or generations forgoing an education. Those are symptoms of a diseased society.

Power of the Punk
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 4, 2018:
There should be a punk hall of fame. Some if us "old timers" could tell stories from the 70's as we all know it wasn't just hard rock, classic rock, and disco. Being from the East, I even remember certain friends showing me "this new shit" now called hip-hop. I still preferred punk, but anything beat disco when it arrived. For those in Asia, disco hasn't ended yet.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 4, 2018:
Thre is gun control - for non whites - in this country. Look at the news and at statistics. That said, there are plenty of things that could be done with no constitutional changes needed (note we do not adhere to Hamiltonian interpretations- look them up). We could ban semi automatics and restrict the number of shells in a clip. 40 years ago when I still hunted, the state only allowed me to have three bullets in my gun to deer hunt. We could do like Iceland, or to some extent Finland and Switzerland, and require mandatory training and testing. We could go back to the "old" days when gun owners were held responsible for what are now tragic accidents (nobody wants to fine or imprison a grieving parent). We could do better background checks and keep people with physical violence offenses or domestic violence from obtaining them. We could, although I believe it is already better done than reported, keep mentally ill people from obtaining guns(this has a lot of flaws, as it has been politicised as a scape goat since most gun deaths attributed to mentally ill people are suicides).
Right away I thought about condemning the act but then.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 4, 2018:
It was a crime. Don't lower yourself to such standards. You're not being asked to mourn the damage, so you don't need to care about the loss. Still, as moral people, we shouldn't tolerate such outward hatred.

Are you pro "choice" or pro "life"?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 3, 2018:
The whole pro life moniker is bull shit created to make the pro choice people look evil. Being in favor of life is not taking away a woman's rights. Being in favor of life is not deciding unscientifically when a being has a consciousness. Being in favor if life is not supporting a country that kills its own people, even beyond the court room and with laws and regulations that damage health and safety. I could rant on, but with a current vote of 28 to 1, I am pretty sure I am preaching to the choir so to speak.
Christian Martyr or “American Dickhead”?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 3, 2018:
Martyr, ha, give me a break. American dumbass. More moronic than trying such shit in North Korea. I had heard about those people before. The fishermen who stranded there were killed, buried, dug up and then hung up on the beach as a warning. I have, because of this idiot, read more about the island people. They are dying out. They don't have enough people to sustain a genetically diverse population. The reason? The last guy they left on the island 70 some years ago introduced some diseases they had no immunity against. They have good reason to kill outsiders. Imagine if the Natives in the Americas had fought back. Probably a similar outcome to what we have now, in the long run, but the Europeans would have slowed their conquests.
There has been some talk on here about unsolicited dick pictures.

Outrageously true. Medical debt put my ex and me into bankruptcy. And the millions or billions in college debts is crazy. I graduated with none: GI bill helped, but getting student aid paid 100 percent in the 80's.

Let's talk a bit about Rumspringa
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 1, 2018:
I've witnessed rumspringa up close. The comments are pretty close to true as the Amish are only required in PA to get an eighth grade education. The worst part is rhe family pressure to return to the fold when the time is up. Many families threaten and even do ostracize any one that does not return. I came across a 22 year old Amish man who was in the mental hospital trying to deal with family pressures and the excessive use of alcohol (and, no, alcohol is not against church rules, where I lived it was well known: see a buggy coming to a stop sign after 2am, don't expect it to always stop because the driver may be asleep drunk and the horse is headed home). Anyway, the young man told me that he was expected to come home, go to work with an Amish business, and get married. He also said, "It will take a hell of a women for me to want to give up my Kawasaki."

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 1, 2018:
Call me skeptical, or call me I've seen too much, but evidence shows a near 100 percent recidivism rate for pedos. Getting married late too often equals marrying someone who already has kids. I've worked in social work and the education field and have made reports as a mandatory reporter.

List of missing in California's deadliest wildfire drops sharply [reuters.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 1, 2018:
Just a note: one in nine of the firefighters in California are prisoners. They save the state millions every year. Some have helped fight multiple fires. For every two days they firefight, they lose a day on their sentence. Although I understand that certain people should never be allowed in public jobs that would put them in contact with people, especially children, due to rules against having any criminal record, they can't become firemen after prison. Like I said, I'm sure some should be no where around people, but I'm also sure there are some who leave prison who would be fine workers, and here these guys are well trained.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Dec 1, 2018:
Much is depression, true. A lot of that is driven by the rising gap in the haves and have lots less and more debt economics which pushes people into feeling trapped and pinned down. Depression can have a lot of root causes. On occasion, it is as simple as you were born with it. Still, it is often, as they say anger turned inward and that American have root causes. Finding those can be a help in therapeutic approaches.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 30, 2018:
I have read a number of "stories" Anything on video is definitely fake. Some other stories, not levitation, sound very slightly possible, and at least a few science studies have shown a vague possibility: like sitting outside in freezing weather and drying a wet sheet wrapped around the body. Science has shown that some people can be placed in a freezing room and keep their hands warm through concentration. I think I would fail. But levitation, no way, no how. Gravity.

How many war zones has the Prez visited? None. Why? Against the war. WTF? No matter what you thought about Obama, a guy who voted against the Iraq war, he acted as a President and visited the troops.

If our ancestors did it, why not everyone else
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 28, 2018:
For the political duhs, who have bought the kool aid, real problems are less in migrants than in HB1 and Student visas where many come and stay. Migrants face a two year, intense scrutiny. Look into it. Wake up. Big business seeking chraper labor and schools seeking ready cash and the government not doing many checks or balances brings in more trouble than does those who go through the system. Those migrants aren't illegals, as they come and request asylum (which can be granted or denied). Worries about terrorists is an absolute red herring as one - terrorists hate to wait, and two - terrorists have money and connections to get in (911 anyone- all HB1 or student visas).
I really wish that religious fanaticism was listed in the DSM.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 27, 2018:
It should be, but isn't. Only if the afflicted has some actual, listed ailment that the fanaticism enhances would any psychologist examine it. I had a therapist briefly who kept holy water. True. Even saw her rosary given by a friend who worked with Catholic priests to do exorcisms (about one to two hundred a year are still sanctioned). That woman is now a nun at 58.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 24, 2018:
I know my answer, and it is not an absolute yes. I support the idea, especially among those with terminal or intense physical pain. Deep psychological pain though, and I know some will argue, is much more difficult to support. I won't go into my history, just know I can and do empathize. Time and science pushed me over the top. Therefore, when there is a strong possibility for recovery, I cannot support euthanasia. I agree that mental pain is horrible to suffer; i do, however, see the two in a differing light.
Do you still believe in Capitalism?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 24, 2018:
I'm not sure since I became aware of other systems that I ever believed in capitalism. What bothers me most as an American is the real stupidity and mind zombism of an unknowingly and brainwashed people. People who think anything else other than capitalism is evil and unbiblical (ironic as the bibly has been used to support other systems like feudalism, which seems a lot like a system similar to capitalism). Far too many in the U.S. don't know the difference between socialism and communism, thus the capitalist have won any argument in favor of more socialism.

Trump-eter
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 23, 2018:
I have been anti Trump for years. He is a phony and a con man who uses others to profit for himself while not caring how the others suffer. Read about his 6 bankruptcies and the smaller contractors who suffered. As a veteran his long string of anti veteran actions and remarks are despicable. Just one example (real news, not well known, but factual) in 92 he sued to keep disabled vets from running food carts in Manhattan because it wouldn't look nice. He lost. Still what kind of man does that? He uses the military as a political pawn, and hasn't visited any military units deployed in war zones (a craven chickenhawk. And if anyone says it is because he opposed the wars, then get the troops the hell out, and note that Obama voted against the wars as a Senator and visited Afghanistan and Iraq)

John Allen Chau, Preacher killed by Natives, Appalling Atheist Reactions - YouTube
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 23, 2018:
The island which he went to is well known. Others, not trying to spread religion have been killed there. So, he would have known the risks. And doing so makes him eligible for a Darwin award. If he expected god to protect him, he was highly naive. I place his death in a category akin to going into North Korea to preach, etc. You have been warned, and you should expect the worst.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 20, 2018:
It is, and truthfully, a sad commentary when there are supposedly more dangerous places in the world (shitholes) where one feels safer than in safe places in the U.S. The only place I have had a gun held on me (been in Asia, Africa and the Mideast and Mexico/Canada) was in San Diego by a cop. I'm a white male. We did have an illegal fire on the beach - a 25 dollar fine at the time.

Do you think abortion laws will be givenback to each state?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 20, 2018:
If one were to ask, most evangelicals, due to a lack of knowledge, would agree that the U.S. should go back to Puritan standards for abortion. They were, however, for those that don't know, legal up until quickening, which sometimes does not occur until the third trimester.
What do normal people do when they feel this sad?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 20, 2018:
Not sure what, in your sense, is this sad. I can empathise, having spent much of my life as a depressive. I even spent a year hospitalized. Thus, I would say, if it is too deep that the many good suggestions being posted here, and I still use many, don't help, then it is time to seek professional help. In the end, my main stressor and "problem" was allowing myself to be in an abusive relationship. Everyone has a different story, a different path, and a different needed outcome. For me, life is now good as I have a handle on and control of my situation. I offer this as hope, knowing feeling sad can be a miserable thing. Try what is offered; I suggest going to talk with someone, even a neo professional; and don't be afraid to seek help. (side note: for full disclosure - if you fear or have heard bad things about psych units, all of that comes with an element of truth. Still, I wish and want for you the best and safest life)

The weakening of Planned parenthood has shown, in all statistical data, to increase unwanted pregnancies and then, more abortions. Keeping women pregnant is a good way to keep them down economically, especially when men are not made to pay their fair share. Face it guys, we are 50% of baby making; and with the ease and accuracy of DNA tests, there are NO excuses for not taking responsibility for one's child.
Trying really hard to not post any politics on face book for one week and see what happens.

Yea. See how that goes. I couldn't resist one today. I posted about Trump's disrespect for the military. I asked my military mates only to respond; told everyone else that at this moment I didn't care what they thought, that we could talk later. Let's see how that goes over.
I bet your mother was the same ... that is why you turned out all right.
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 19, 2018:
Don't assume all moms are this way. Try some social work. Meet some abuse survivors. I get your gist, and for many it is true. Even all my kids had jobs; and they appreciate their education. But it isn't that simple as the meme makes it sound.
A paradox of a sort

Yeah. I tell people my ancestors were horse traders and they're like "oh" and I'm like "that's like used car salesmen today."
[politico.com] US Troops Near Mexico Border Start Coming Home
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 19, 2018:
Proof positive of a wasteful political stunt. The troops would have been better utilized in California for search and rescue and humanitarian assistance.
Trump Says He Was 'Fully Briefed' and Also 'Not Briefed Yet' But Either Way Saudi Crown Prince ...

The House of Saud snaps its fingers and our government pulls down their pants for butt access.
Have we been to the moon?...Cant even get 200,000 miles on the average car!!
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 19, 2018:
About two thirds of the world's population scoffs at the notion of man having been to the moon, including a number of Americans and other so called advanced nations. I am looking forward to China putting humans there shortly after 2020 off their timeline holds because more if the world will believe man has gone there.
I reached level 5! Where are my promised virgins?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 19, 2018:
You have been reading the Agnistc Hadif. Only trust the real word of Dog in the great spiritual text WOOF, as translated from the drunken English version of Wolf. Besides, those promised virgins are all thirty something comic book nerds (Not that I don't love me some good comics, or a good, redheaded nerd)
What the frock
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 18, 2018:
A specious argument. Marriage or not has nothing to do with child abuse. In fact, the amount of those priests who were pedophiles is not too far off of the national or world average. The secondary crime which allowed the first crime to be epidemic was the silence by and the cover up of the crimes by so many in the church hierarchy. Those crimes allowed criminal priests to continue committing crimes while others looked away and hid the facts from the public. For them, a return to burning at the stake would be too nice; bring out some tools from the Spanish Inquisition and then watch them suffer.
So this!!!!!!!!!
