She was too young to remember me, but I was on a break and got to watch them do several takes of a scene for the film then. I also met Warren Oates (now deceased) who was in that same movie. In honor of Oates the local drive-in was playing his film "Chandler" at the time. This was around 1973.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 12, 2019:
Men like Prince think they are above the law. This is the main reason that many security companies today are private. They really do not answer to anyone. This fits the agenda of the Koch brothers, Trump, DeVos, et al, and works much as it did when Dick Cheney ran all of this in the Bush administration. The USA is literally an oil company with an army. Keep the above in mind when you read any "facts" of why we have to go into another country or why we should go into another country. Democracy is not a part of these ops.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 12, 2019:
On another website a believer told me I should study how we got the scriptures and how the bible was put together. He said this after I had posted on that same subject and claimed it as a big point on my non-belief. My answer to him was that 300 plus year old writings are not consistent with anything related to a man named Jesus and his "scholar" he is pointing me to is all locked up in a particular denomination. His belief becomes a biased opinion of the group he belongs to. He ends up saying that Josephus and Paul were contemporaries of each other. I point out to him that neither man knew or met Jesus and Paul is credited with writing a third of the NT. Paul was deluded and had a little to say about angels and heaven. One of his problems was that he could never tell if he was in or out of his body.

The problem once I take on 100% belief or disbelief is that I take on the burden of proof for such a claim. I cannot do that because there is no proof or evidence.

It's a borderline idea of civil war and if the time is ever right for this they will fall into larger groups that believe the same thing. Government and taxes are needed just like schools and roads are needed. Healthcare for all is needed.

Not only are "mature" politicians getting it wrong, the entire conservative group is getting it wrong. Some of this carries over into our confused DNC. We need people like Ocasio-Cortez to stir things up. How can you take a person as being logical when he is against AOC because we "cannot live in a world without cows or airplanes." She did not say that we should. It was someone else's ideas of what she said. Chances are it came from the conservative right.

All I said was that Trump is the problem in America today and I would not walk across the street to see him.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 9, 2019:
I see your disdain and I agree with every word and thought here. Born and raised in America I still do not understand it. My take is that the rich want to show you that the problem is people on welfare. These are the ones that hold back the average man and take away everything he is entitled to. The average man seems to buy into this even though he has family somewhere that is on welfare. God belief steps in next because god wants you to "be healthy and prosper" so your poor family members must have some "secret sin" in their lives. You don't know what it is and neither do they, but that has to be the answer. This makes you better than them and lifts your white ass above all the other skin types. After all, Jesus was a white man. This is my story on how white Evangelicals fund the mega rich and it is likely to continue as long as we have a mix of faith and politics. Reagan opened the doors for this and he was driven by his wife who was a believer in astrology. Go figure.

Alex Trebek requests prayers from viewers .
DenoPenno comments on Mar 8, 2019:
Trebek has a disease that is a death sentence. I feel for him because my mother died from the same thing. They say this puts me at risk also. The thing is, prayers to imaginary gods will not help you. My step father just knew that god was going to heal mom. God healed about as many as he healed the last time. Mom lived about as long as anyone else that developed the disease. Perhaps if we had prayed differently and held our tongues in other areas of our mouths. Maybe doing that and then hopping on one foot. Patrick Swayze died of the same thing but he lived longer than my mom. They say his wife is still so terribly upset with him for dying and leaving her. She was under age when he and Lisa first met. Oh, but Miss Nemi, it was not his fault. He did not want to die and leave you.

Services we take for granted in our country and going to hell, roads and infrastructure, etc. and nobody cares. America is trying the best it can at being an oligarchy. Nobody gives a damn about you, your water or food, your healthcare, or your land. You are offered an "America Dream" that is impossible to achieve unless you somehow become on of the elite. This is why I have a half acre of land and live in a mobile home and have an average car. I have learned to live within my means because I know how bad the world really is.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 8, 2019:
Look for Trump to try and get that going over here. He has already wanted names of Facebook activists and those who write things about him. Well, why not? The UK has "hate speech" laws and we are fast going there. Facebook says it will not comply but they recently went in with a GOP right wing fact checking organization. Since when did the GOP fact check anything? Currently Facebook has two faces about American politics and it depends on which side you are on as to which face you see. I suppose that is considered normal when you are selling information. I was censored in FB once along these lines for "bullying" a man who came out of thin air to post on my page. In free speech you have a right to diss your government and that includes those who run it. More today than ever they appear to not care at all for the citizens.

I assume someone called to report this man and that most likely means they are living in the area. This incident and many others like it are a symptom of living in Trumpworld. Power has now been given to white nationalists. We have a world where racism raises it's ugly head again and the number one leader says it is OK.

My radar picks up on whites talking trash and some of them do it unawares. Some are flat out racists. I'm aware that Julie and Tommy can be as intelligent as anyone else and they should be allowed to be anyone they want to be. Yet, I find ignorant whites arguing on how they would feel if "god had made them a black man." It's insanity! I don't want to cry about this issue or feel any guilt. I do feel badly about it and I avoid anyone who is racist in any way whether they are aware of it or not.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
I feared death when I was a believer and you would think you would be OK with death then because it's in "god's plan." Today I do not fear death. The fear I have is knowing I will die and have all that unfinished business. Regardless of how trivial the things we do really are, they are important to us. I might add that I prefer to die without pain if possible.

There is no one verse. The bible in general should do it. The Ten Commandments are mostly bad. They point out the jealous tribal god. In some of the old manuscripts god's name was "jealous."

(You can Google these things and find verses.) Just use a few key words. Part of the harm is in keeping people ignorant. Many still teach that Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt. Just as many believe it. This is an impossibility.

A believe cannot reason that way. To them god is a given and if you do not believe in him you must be angry at him. This is why we are "angry atheists." Also, believers have a book that says everybody believes in god. This is why they say there are no atheists in foxholes. If I'm in a foxhole gods are the last thing I'm thinking about. To illustrate how believers think I can tell you this story from my believing days. When I heard that Madalyn Murray O'Hair was murdered I assumed god did it or allowed it because she did not believe in him. Ignorant, yes, but this is the spell that believers are under.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
This is a very good question. In my day you found people at the river party that was rumored to be going on. That or the bowling alley even if you didn't bowl. Certain bars that played music. Today I don't drink and drive. Not even one. A library in my area might have 3 people. Recently I went to the Senior Center with a friend. Here I met half dead people and we got to say the pledge as well as to pray. Then we ate and talked. Not my cup of tea. I suspect a good place to meet people would be wherever it is that they sit around in a group all looking down at their phones and texting each other. Today you text Suzy about going to the event with you and she is sitting right by you. Or you can just text any words that show up on your screen and find out you are being played.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
I sort of fit into that. My circle is almost down to me alone these days. I like being alone but I can be in a group and talk of many things. I work with the public but could also give a speech to a crowd. I cherish my alone time most of all. Even so, I remember working in a factory where I saw 2 men walking along and one points me out. He says - "See that man. He will follow you around talking to you." It was funny because the one man was following the other man at the time. Since I do love to talk you would think I would love texting. Not so. I hate it. Everyone walks around with there head down and smiling at their phone. Mine is in my pocket or I left it in my car. Not so long ago a person got my number and said now we can text each other. Why? I send a text only if you sent me one and it has some importance.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
I know it is a hard road to travel. As most of my family dies off I get more irritated with believers in any form. They want to call you into a debate or discussion because they think you have just "fallen away" and they can get you to believe again. Their book compels them to do this. I have the advantage of studying that book and knowing more about it than the average person. This is also why I do not believe. I'm tired of looking at the sky and trees as evidence. I find no proof that an invisible being is concerned with us in any way. When the doorknockers show up all smiles and bibles in hand I'm starting to get outspoken like never before. Trying my new one now, I open the door for the First Blabtist Church and say "sorry, don't believe" and just close the door in their face. That usually does it.

The picture makes it look bad as I'm sure it really is. This looks horrific! The problem is that Facebook plays every side for manipulation and opinion. The idea is get all the info on you they can so that your opinions can influence others in some way, and all of it is about selling something. Today we are the product. A man I know tells me he reads all the bad info on Obama and Hillary there, and very shortly Trump will have them both in prison. What my feed shows is this same thing about Trump. Others apparently believe we are allowing babies to be born and then killing them. Still more think that Bush and Obama are set to be killed for alleged crimes. This is all just one tip of the iceberg. In the name of profits our world has went nuts! Do I believe the above pics? Yes I do, and I'm not a fan of Nuttiyahu. People living in a land where they fight over the land when there is no other land to give are likely to be in this type of battle. The Middle East has been in this forever and America has made a choice and drank the koolaid. We base it all on make believe books written by an invisible man.
How about some Viggo Mortensen?

Roseanne Bar calls Ocasio-cortez a "bug eyed bitch" [secondnexus.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
I'm not sure that Roseanne even knows what she is trying to say. She lost her show because she viewed herself as a political activist and she just had to speak out in a crude joke about Obama and Valerie Jarrett. The problem here is that Trump was president at the time. Totally ignorant.

One of my marriages would be considered a child bride. I was 24 and we ran away to be married in Alabama. The way the law went they had to contact her parents for consent but the time frame would expire before they could reply. This was before our "information age" as we have things today.
Reminder: A difference of opinion is not an attack.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
Thanks for this post. I've noticed that if I reply to someone they think I am attacking and that I should not be able to do this. If I disagree with you I am only trying to make you think. For the most part there are more attackers on Facebook than anywhere else I've found. If someone's info is wrong just post a link to a trusted site that gets the info right and that should settle it. This can be done without pages of debate, and I do not like debate. The problem with debate is that the original subject is lost in all the ongoing pages of reply.

As cannibis becomes legal look for many other things to come out, all in the name of making money. Will they help you? We will have to try them to see.
This is an amazing site.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 6, 2019:
Your words ring true to me because I have found that once you become agnostic/atheist you have a different shared kinship with other human beings. Everything becomes different. My own daughters tell me they "believe in god in their own way." Everybody I know wants to give some ability to their invisible god. The answer to almost anything for the world at large is to "pray." Talking with my lifelong theist friend about the universe brings him to "god did it" when we reach a point that should be answered with "we don't know." I'm pushing 73 and find more people carrying guns. I'm also afraid but apparently not of the same things they are. Most of the above makes me feel alone. This site is a breath of fresh air!

DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
In the end that POS might succeed in getting things set just right for DeVos, Pence, and others to step in with their Christian Nation garbage. The result would be to teach Christianity in public schools. The end result of that after some legal battles would be to teach ALL religions in schools. This would have to be done equally and there is not enough time. Rather than help their god the idiots end up as having a lot to do with the god belief decline. You cannot legislate religion and you cannot legislate morality.
The cheering points of the CPAC. []
DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Both of my daughters were raised as girls. If one of them picked up the GI Joe we made her put it down and go back to Barbie. I can tell you right now if AOC comes to take my cows she will have to pry them out of my cold dead hands! What sort of frigging nonsense is that CPAC? I would be afraid to align myself with any party that would do this.
Your faith is determined by where you were born or where you were brainwashed. Do you agree?
DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
In most cases I can agree. You are unlikely to find a Pentecostal living in Iran who was also born in Iran. When some people wake up they determine accurately that gods are myths. Others just keep on trying to believe by changing the background information. This last one is the true insanity of religion. I've had others tell me that I could not have tried all the religions. Why would I have to? This is proof that they never stopped believing.
This is why we can't have nice things.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
It isn't always grandpa either. The vast majority in our country just does not get it that taxes can give us all social security and universal healthcare. This is not happening because somebody along the way wants to make more money.

DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
I see some of this but why do we bring Obama into it? Obama is not in power today. I see your post as a diversion along the lines of any current GOP supporter. Let's forget about our Trump problem and divert the conversation into something else. Fuck Trump!
This is Democratic socialism not capitalism.
DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
I love Democratic Socialism. Without it I would have money problems with no Social Security. On that issue alone the Republicans would have less money for their masters because in many cases all over America someone would have to be taking care of their parents at home. No money for nursing homes any longer. You cannot take care of elderly parents and still work a job. The above is only one issue in a very long line of opposition to much needed services. The GOP is out of touch and they seem to only support Pacman Capitalism. Real capitalism is where you actually build a better mouse trap.
I love coffee! Woo-Hoo! LOL

Me too but I can never brew coffee like I get at the local Mobil station. They have the best coffee.

I'm always happy when Trump loses a lawsuit. You never know when he will want to make a binding deal using fake identities and then not even have that deal signed. He's a stable genius!
Good morning! I can't believe daylight savings time is upon us this weekend.

We should forever be on daylight savings time. It takes me a week to adjust also and I don't know what I'm going to do with all this saved up time. :)
Ex-Trump White House lawyer calls Mueller 'hero,' says probe is no witch hunt []
DenoPenno comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Trump supporters believe this is all a "witch hunt" but they forget the number one thing about it all. Robert Mueller is a Republican. His investigation has nothing to do with Democrats or what Democrats want. All that noise come from Trump's lying mouth.
Bravery: Richard Dawkins interviews Saudi Arabian atheist author Rana Ahmad
DenoPenno comments on Mar 4, 2019:
She is brave and I love Richard Dawkins! Can you imagine any situation where your own brother wants to kill you? This is what fanatical religion does. All this woman wants is equality and to not be forcefully guided by the invisible man. Strangely, as Muslims break away from this it is starting to crank up in America again with a different name and more suppression. Deep down our believers are different only in name and more limited action.
