I have been unemployed for about a week. I keep thinking I need a puppy, I do have time now to train one. I have two cats, they're about 3 and 4 years old. Then I remember my back yard isn't fenced, the grands are frequent visitors, and I will likely be going back to work.... and I get over it. I want a dog someday, but this isn't the best house for it, so we will see what happens when I really retire.

I never even mentioned it to my kids til the youngest was applying for a passport and I was renewing mine, we were at the Post Office Passport window.

Atheists most politically active group in US, survey finds - The Christian Post
KKGator comments on Jun 14, 2020:
I guess they're on to me, too. I couldn't read the article. LOL I've got the general idea though. ;)
HippieChick58 replies on Jun 14, 2020:
And the last part is: “This could be one of the reasons that the Blue Wave happened in 2018 — a very agitated base of atheists who got politically involved,” he continued. “White evangelicals make up 15.6% of the population, atheists and agnostics combined are 13.2%. With that level of political activity, it’s fair to say that these nones might be a bigger political force in the next presidential election than we give them credit for — they just have to stay angry and stay engaged.” As religious unaffiliated Americans in general appear to increase in number, the Democratic Party has made more overtures to those who identify as atheist. Last August, the Democratic National Committee passed a resolution in support of religious unaffiliated Americans, declaring that atheists and agnostics “overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values.” "I am proud to see the Democratic Party take that to heart by bringing secular Americans into the fold,” said Sarah Levin, director of governmental affairs for the Secular Coalition of America, which championed the resolution. “America was founded as a secular government charged with representing and protecting the freedoms of people of all faiths and none.” In the current session of Congress, 88.2% of members identify as Christian, while 6.4% identify as Jewish, and 3.6% identified either as unaffiliated or declined to answer, according to Pew Research Center.

HippieChick58 replies on Jun 14, 2020:
The first half of the article says: Americans who identify as atheist are the most likely group to be involved in political activism, according to a report by a political science professor. Ryan P. Burge of Eastern Illinois University drew from data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Survey of 2018 for his report published by Religion in Public. When asked about political activity within the past 12 months, 24.9% of atheist respondents said they had attended a march or protest, the largest of any of the surveyed religious groups. Additionally, 41.9% of atheist respondents said they had contacted a public official, again the largest percentage of surveyed religious groups, and 37% had donated money to a candidate, tying with Jews for first place. Also, 24.1% of atheist respondents reported putting up a political sign, placing them in a close second to 24.7% of Buddhist respondents. White evangelical respondents showed less participation by comparison, with 4.4% of respondents saying they had attended a march or protest and 28.5% saying they had contacted a public official. “It’s become almost a trope at this point among people who study and write about American religion and politics — evangelicals punch way above their weight. Their voter turnout has stayed relatively steady despite their drop in population share,” wrote Burge. “But I was working through some data today and noticed something that I don’t think that I’ve seen reported on much — atheists are incredibly politically active — more so than any other religious group.” Burge went on to speculate that this increased political involvement might have helped contribute to Democratic political successes in the 2018 midterm elections.

HippieChick58 replies on Jun 13, 2020:
@WayneDalton @Detritus I don't know that those of us alive in the US now "deserve" that cretin, however our history as Detritus points out is loaded with transgressions against all sorts of weaker peoples. We are certainly paying the price for those transgressions. And truly Detritus has only scratched the surface of the sins of our forefathers. Howard Zinn's book A People's History of The United States was so hard for me to read. I read it a few years ago at the recommendation of my kids. HOW had I not known so much of that? And for that matter why did my kids know it and not me? The real point is that needs to be taught to everyone in the US, and we need to fix things so it doesn't happen anymore. And we need to stop it from happening to anyone. We also need to attone for the sins of our forefathers, the US is not great any longer, and hasn't been for a while.

I took it back to my daughter and she commented she was wondering where that went to.

@Lauren @StarvingArtist I have a countdown timer on my phone of days left until I can get Medicaid. Right now it is over 900 days. I'm 62, so technically I can retire, but I don't want to shell out for health insurance, I did COBRA for six months about 1.5 years ago. It is pricey. So I'm just sucking up here til I can retire. I like most of the job, I like helping families figure out their medical bills. I don't like the BS, some of it is the office and some is the system in the US.

That franchise owner is paying dues to the franchise, and the franchise makes rules for all their stores. They are connected. If the stores face backlash for what the representative of the franchise is doing, they need to apply pressure in whatever form to the franchise.

HippieChick58 replies on Jun 2, 2020:
@t1nick I own two televisions but no longer have cable. AND the sofa is across the room from one of the TVs, great viewing angle. However, I had to stop sitting on the sofa when I developed sciatica. My recent TV viewing has been videos on my laptop as I sit beside the TV. Other TV is in the basement which I no longer use... I have thought about relocating it, but I don't have a place I want to put it, and I don't watch that much TV. I turned off cable during the 2016 primary season, I looked up from my computer and saw Ted Cruz in my living room. It was an ad prior to the Iowa primary. Nope, no Ted, no cable. I'm happy.

It is that 40+ hours a week that I am at work, and those 56 hours per week I'm trying to sleep that they do their mischief. When I am home the spray bottle is usually nearby. In fact the bottle in the bedroom is plastic, and all I have to do it tap on it and the guilty party will fly out of what ever mischief she is up to. Both cats are less than 4 years old, so full of piss and vinegar.
