In Praise of Farmers Markets
ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 27, 2019:
Farmers markets in England never seem to have farmers selling - most stalls are normal market sellers who push up the price because buyers are generally wealthy middle class wanting 'real' food. But we have a network of small growers of fruit, veg, flowers, eggs, poultry, sheep, pigs, milk, cows - all at a reasonable price....generally a swap for my fish, venison, rabbits, or even looking after their dog or cat. I went to a very real weekly farmers market in cuba - big trucks arrive in the early morning holding several tons of produce - the back of the truck is lifted and people pick direct from the truck and pay the driver

One thing almost guaranteed when sharing your life with a dog is that they will die before you. It is harder than losing almost any person - your dog is there every morning, all through the day, and when you sleep at night - you never spend so much time with anyone, that close personal bond is so strong

ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 26, 2019:
I have fought against these - and suffered from them - for too many years to stop now Those who engage in torture Those who physically abuse and/or rape others, (those weaker than themselves) Those who impose their own moral and ethical codes on others in those simple guidelines there ar so many areas where conflicts in implementation occur my morality says this torture is acceptable she is an infidel whore - so rape is ok etc..............I have had to use my own judgment on such moral issues and always tried not to impose my western culture. I am uncertain that I always made a correct decision
'In God We Trust' Signs Go Up In South Dakota Public Schools, As Required By Law : NPR
ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 26, 2019:
I do not believe in a god, but accept the concept has a useful role in society.... 'God' as in a group of men back in around ad400 put together a book collection that gives general guidance on what to do and more often, what not to do (killing people, stealing, fucking neighbours wife, etc) - these are a reasonable basis for social living - and backed up by the mystical post mortem hell ensures most people adhere to the programme..... I am uncertain of what society could install to take over that role - a general idea of being moral and ethical does not appear to be a powerful enough driver to ensure compliance - and we have all seen how low social norms can fall, yet still be accepted.

California Pastor Loses Job After Posting Sign Stating 'Homosexuality Is Still a Sin' | CBN News
ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 24, 2019:
If he is openly homophobic, lesbophobic, paedophobic, fat person phobic or whatever. I would say he has a right to his belief and a right to write it .... and others have a right to disagree and write their own comments. It is how civilised society conducts itself - the problems start when someone decides violence is a better way of promulgating their view than text or speech. It is quite probable that almost everything anyone writes on the internet, says on a phone, or in certain cases speaks directly to another person can be analysed by a government agency But no-one, whether it be an individual, social group, or government, has a right to prevent people holding a viewpoint and expressing that view through text or speech.

Why Don’t Police Catch Serial Rapists? - The Atlantic
ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 18, 2019:
I have argued for many years that the police should make greater use of forensic technology in documenting crime - Rape is a special case, but all crimes have victims. Fingerprinting, palm prints DNA, everything that identifies an individual should be collected, collated in one database and referenced every time someone new is added to the list. This may not immediately solving a case, but documenting who did it on the basis that sooner or later, like turds, they will float to the surface will produce convictions. Currently crime pays and perpretators will probably get away with it - if people find criminals are being caught at any time, even years after the act, it may reduce crime rates, particularly if deterrent penalties are imposed.
Again the comparison is chilling
ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 18, 2019:
deplorable action to lock up these kids coming over the mexican border, but I have not heard reports of any being gassed and cremated (maybe need to give it time) Perhaps all those who find the idea of them being locked up could sponsor one child and offer a bed and board - for just one child - the problem is then resolved. Sadly, the world is full of complainants, while there is a dearth of action takers

For queries below - the benefits of 3 years work as a bricklayer and a degree in ceramics - The bricks with music would be hand made - a flat surface of soft clay then hand carved with that music. The colour difference - that clay may be completely different to the mass produced bricks, or fired at a different temperature. The different pointing around the music bricks may indicate that the original standard bricks were removed and replaced by these - but could simply be that there is efflorescence from the music bricks.

I agree with almost everything you say.- but it has been going on for much more than 100 years - probably right back to the crusader invasions of a thousand years ago.

Imposing western values and ethics onto other countries with their own civilisation, often of much longer standing than the USA, is wrong .. and foolhardy.

ShadowAmicus comments on Jul 14, 2019:
I have friends and acquaintances around the world who followtheir god, under whatever religious banner they choose - me being agnostic does not prevent friendship,rather the opposite. Almost every religion is based on a moral and social code and there are massive overlaps of moral values between these religions and my own views - the basics like not killing, not stealing, helping others, etc.- and some religious ideas I disbelieve like sex, particularly homosexuality, or with a neighbours wife is a sin. My friends and I often talk directly, or by messaging, about moral and philosophical questions and debate possible actions that could be taken to improve parts of the world. They, for the most part, agree that it is not necessary to follow a god to be a 'good' person, as I have come to accept that the teaching of moral values to children can not always be left to parents and is easier for society in general to instill such values if there is a standard bearer / religion to follow. Our only difference is that they are certain a supreme being exists and I do not - but lacking evidence either way I acknowledge there may be (in the same way that we have not yet found a goatherder on the moon - but there may be one) It is judgmental, chauvinistic and frankly stupid, to cut out of your life any person simply because they hold religious views ... better to talk, acknowledge the differences and celebrate the points of agreement.
