DenoPenno comments on Jul 20, 2019:
My flying dreams were mostly while I was a younger man, but anything is possible. I often find that it is a means of travel and the past is also available to travel. Some things can be learned but not like films or novels portray them. Mostly my dreams today express some anxiety that may have been present as I went to sleep. Since the mind is not fully asleep I find that outside influences like storm or rain may become part of the dream experience and add to the dream setting. By all means write down the dream experience in the first 15 minutes of it will be lost forever.

DenoPenno comments on Jul 20, 2019:
All I know is that socialist ideas are one thing and a socialist government is yet another. Social security is OK and so is socialized medical care. Hard core conservatives fight it and the base reason is money. They claim it takes too much money while their basic plan is to continue making money in the current system. We have always had these ideas and put some of them to work for our betterment. Programs becoming the law of the land is OK. When these same programs govern the people it all goes rotten. This seems to be something that conservatives never catch on to. They cannot distinguish the difference.
And they are serious about their "reporting." Jerry Springer journalism at its finest.

DenoPenno comments on Jul 18, 2019:
Exactly correct. Keep in mind that god did not like mankind for not doing what he said and he condemned us to populate the earth through incest. This was possible because of the extra long lives people lived then. Something about this pissed god off also even though it was his plan. The second time around he drowned everyone except for 8 people and the animals, saving them all on a big boat, and he started that same plan of incest once again!

The true tragedy of trump
DenoPenno comments on Jul 18, 2019:
In my case this has resulted in a lost friendship with a man I have known for 50 years. We still speak but no longer go out of our way to be friends or talk on the phone. We no longer visit each other. The man is not into politics and not super bright but our split came when he told me in all sincerity that "Trump has done more for us in a short time than all the presidents before him." I exploded on him and the Trumper made this remark long before Trump himself said it at the NATO meeting where he was laughed at. Later Fox and other media played the video and cut out the laughter. I don't think my former friend even reads news in any form. To fact check might mean it was "fake news." He simply believes what he wants to believe.

You hit them too close to home. Trumpers know that Trump is "of god" because Pence is a breath away from giving America that "Christian nation" status that so many think we have. Pence is one of those who fall right in there with the New Apostolic Reformation.
Are we, (The US,) engaged in a great civil war?
DenoPenno comments on Jul 18, 2019:
An old strategy to sell goods and products galore was to "create for the king an enemy." This has always worked well. In times of war you could even sell to both sides. This progresses into modern times with people selling Widgets and how everyone needs a widget and their widget is the absolute best. It makes you ask what happens when we have no more widgets? That is when you start confliction. Simply cause everyone to become conflicted. The result is that you have many different people believing many different things. If you sell your bill of goods properly some will always buy your product and may even be willing to fight others along the way. I'm not just talking car sales here or Facebook showing you pages you have recently viewed on the Internet. Let's take it deeper. America is divided and conflicted. This happened to us because others wanted our money and also our support. The "products" being created are different models of how they think we would want our world to be. It made money, got some people killed, and also got people like Donald Trump elected. The left is as guilty as the right and once Trump is in power nobody knows exactly what to do any longer. The American Dream is dead. You might work 2 or more jobs and still think it is alive and well, but you are being taken in by both sides. Your conflict might be that you will not admit this. It has to be happening because of non-white and not entitled people. You might see that Donald Trump is not exactly right on things but he is close enough for you. You don't want to miss out. You want to make sure that "you get yours" and that it is not stolen by some unworthy group or person. At the moment this is the state of America's new great civil war. The powers that be are not very civil. A wrong move here could bring this into a real warfare.

It is a very good question to ask why we are not talking about this. In the meantime Trump and friends will go fullsteam ahead to prosecute others and implicate others as a distraction in order to make you believe he is totally innocent as usual. Any name on the Trump enemy list will be investigated as part of this distraction. Trumpers will take this action to mean that Donald has to be innocent.

DenoPenno comments on Jul 13, 2019:
In Genesis 2.7 of the KJV we find that "man became a living soul." This would seem to indicate that man could also be a "dead" soul. They play with the Hebrew word nephesh or "breath" to indicate that god breathed into man to bring him to life. Nothing says that god gave man a soul or that mankind "has a soul." You cannot get diehard believers away from this idea however. Despite Ecclesiastes 9.5 saying that "the dead know nothing" believers chose to go along with Saul of Tarsus who had visions and revelations as St. Paul. In doing so the man could never tell whether he was "in or out of his body" and since he is credited with writing two thirds of the NT people easily are convinced that they can jump around from place to place without their bodies and they are tricked into thinking this is all "biblical." This borders very closely on what we know of a sleep or dreaming realm where we can do many things that are impossible to those who are awake. You do not have a soul. You are the soul.

Although I can agree with you it is important to control your feelings of rage. All you have control over is yourself and you must control rage or it will control you.

Get a grip on this or it will get a grip on you. Do not end up taking medicine for things you cannot change. Notice I did not ask you to "forgive" anybody but you do need to get the hell away from the source of the anger and rage.

These are no more than an increased tax on goods. Importers bring in the goods and pay for them as they come in, then Americans who buy the goods pay more than before to compensate the extra costs. Silly people believe that China and Mexico are paying more. That isn't how it works. It gets worse when the Trumpers claim this is all Trump's way of bringing jobs back to America. At some point they all think someone will start making the goods in America again and make them for less. This idea is nonsense that defies logic.

Trump never was presidential and can never be presidential. It's in his nature. The big thing that nobody addresses is that no president before Trump would be allowed to get away with even a third of what Trump does and gets away with. The big question is why is this happening and what can we do about it?
Who says it can't happen here? Read this list of Trump attrocities.

It can and is happening here. The big question is how do we change it? Appearance says that the Trump GOP is happy with it.

Forgiveness is a form of letting go, but they are not the same thing.
DenoPenno comments on Jul 8, 2019:
There is no need to forgive. I think this is pushed upon us because of Christianity and the idea that if you do not forgive you may not get into heaven. Often I read of people who claim openly that they forgive the one that murdered their loved one. My first thoughts are "like hell you do!" If it is all about a personal love relationship of 2 people the stories can vary and be different in many ways. The bottom line is always that both of you ended up going in different directions.

Of course it is child abuse. In some parts of America today they have after school people who move in to teach children that they are sinners. This was questioned in court and it was found that they could no longer use school property for this. The Good News Club of the religious right would have your child crying because they have "sinned" and much of America still goes along with it. I personally think that the club and the participating school should be sued to the max.
Religious indoctrination in public schools.
DenoPenno comments on Jul 6, 2019:
When most Americans tell you they are against teaching religion in our public schools it is because of our clause for separation of church and state. What we are fighting against is Evangelicals moving in to claim we are really a Christian Nation and what they are pushing is their own brand of religion. In other words, their church and their Sunday School moves right in to become part of public education. This is wrong. Flat out wrong! What would be allowed in teaching about religion is all religions in general, what they are about, and where they came from. In this way religion itself does not dominate our public education. Religion is taught as an historical point and not a "chose you this day which god you will serve" situation. No god will ever dominate the classroom and can never be spoken of as doing so.

I'm glad they left the banners up. It is rightly said that "in god we trust" can be printed on our money for that is the god that people trust in the most.
I was not raised in a religious environment.
DenoPenno comments on Jul 5, 2019:
My exposure to religion came at about age 12 or 13. I was so overwhelmed by it that I took it to extremes and wanted to be a minister. Many years later I credit that study itself with helping me to be skeptical. Believers were all people older than me and old people themselves. I thought automatically that they knew the truth. Today I resent religion in any form because it misleads people. "Well, how did you get here then?" I'm not sure about others but I had parents.

Hooking up again in 6 months is not exactly my thing. Last night on an Online site someone was trying to catfish me. (I had to look that up once to see what it was but I'm sure there are different types of it.) One thing that bothers me as a male is all the men who have to have women shorter than they are. Why? I don't care if you are 6' 2". Men are also bothered if a woman makes more money than they do. Again, I do not personally see why.
[] Could this mean they will eventually see their error in ever believing at all?
DenoPenno comments on Jul 5, 2019:
God is called "he" because the bible writers viewed women as just another kind of property by which they could also reproduce themselves. Their bible book also has god speaking and saying "let us make man in our image." This would appear to say god is a male image because god was interpreted as talking to Jesus and Michael the Archangel. If you are a JW you believe that Jesus** was** Michael the Archangel. To me it is a lot of hooey!
Which Food Network chef do you find most annoying and which ones do you find entertaining?

Emeril Lagassi is OK and I like Rachel Ray. Actually I don't watch food shows too often.
Happy 'escape our grasp' Day. I hope you are satisfied??? ;)
DenoPenno comments on Jul 4, 2019:
Thanks for the good wishes but I am not satisfied. I might be if I outlive Bone Spurs.
Has the ring of truth
DenoPenno comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I agree with the sign 100 percent.
When you're a dictator...
DenoPenno comments on Jul 4, 2019:
I agree with Batman. As for Bone Spurs, we should forcibly operate on him. I know he does not remember which heel had the bone spurs but they do not go away on their own. Operate on both his feet.
So if trump loses the election, will he fabricate a crisis and try to stay in power?
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I believe there is a good chance that he might do that. Will anyone have guts enough to forcibly remove him?
Religious right striking back at atheist
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I agree with mayor Betsy Price that many Americans have fought and died for our freedoms. I'm having problems with putting that into any religious belief unless the implication was that our Veterans deserve some sort of reward. I'm also a Veteran. It doesn't mean that we go to some special place.
Info for trumpers pay heed lol
DenoPenno comments on Jul 3, 2019:
I like this idea. LOL Fake newspapers are now popping up pointing out that Obama and everyone before Trump was spying on him including our FBI and CIA. Is Trump suddenly that important? I thought this was called investigation. Trump's GOP wants to make it a crime.
