‘Open to meeting women’ means:

  1. For sharing ideas, conversation and comparing perspectives.

  2. Personally meeting some showing mutual interest in cultivating friendship and social activities. There is no sexual or 'relationship' agenda.

  3. Only a possibility of exclusive intimacy eventuating, should one in particular become special;. Don't count on it because the 'last train' has probably already left the station. But it doesn't hurt to keep an ear open for a distant whistle..

So, for women in my age range still seeking ‘that one’ as sole motivation for screening, it is vital to point out that I’m not him.
I’m leaving the ‘off feet sweeping’ and hip attachment to other generations.

Pick One-Where Are You ?

If Your Ex Started Dating.....
Silver1wun comments on Jul 1, 2018:
Doesn't matter as long as the question is qualified by 'after'. No crime in finding attraction and interest in another person under any set of circumstances. What counts to me is honesty and that means terminating intimacy (if that is the understanding) with someone before cultivating the possibility of it with another person. It can happen to anyone at any time, male or female and people would do well to acknowledge that as a fact of life before entering into an understanding of sexual fidelity. What I see as seriously wrong is deception and carrying-on with another or self-deception in pretending one doesn't know something is not right. Telling the other person that it isn't working for you is honest. It doesn't matter if attraction to somebody else is part of the reason; in fact, all the better reason.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 29, 2018:
poor thing :(
So after reading some comments on an FB post, I became very curious.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 29, 2018:
1. Nature hasn't done such a bad job with our species and it appears that we are the most advanced on this planet. However evolved we believer ourselves to be, I don't believe we are going to outdo Nature at her own game on any level. When we try, it almost always ends unsuccessfully. By any name, permanent modification of genitalia for any reason is mutilation. A parent's duty is to protect and foster a child's healthy development. Religion or any other sets of ignorant, superstitious notions do not trump what Nature has ordained without consequences. Genital mutilation in all forms is barbaric, anti-life and anti-Nature. 2. Circumcision is an assumed norm alright; just as female genital mutilation is in some parts of the world. The roots are religious; as are all too many social practices thought to be 'custom' or secular. Both practices, along with so many other archaic and contemporary ways children are afflicted, are crimes against humanity. 3. 'Women's reproductive rights' is a narrow, misleading term substituted for political reasons. All people have (theoretically under our system) bodily sovereignty. Being personal sovereigns includes but is not limited to 'reproductive rights'; as though women are privileged in the matter. The labels 'pro-choice' and 'pro-life' are disingenuous and merely politically motivated dodges from the real issue directly related to power. As in the case of bodily sovereignty, the scope has been limited for political reasons. Pro this or that is a dodge. The broader, comprehensive issue is this. Who shall have the POWER to determine/define all conditions under which homicide is legally acceptable as remedial choice? The rest is window dressing.
I need some advice.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 29, 2018:
What instrument/s do you play well enough to pass as professional? Is your voice one of them? Do you live in an area that has venues for live entertainment? Are you good at composing and/or with lyrics? Music, if you're really good, offers so many options for employment while going to school. Depending on your virtuosity and talent, you might be able to 'have it both ways'. I know many entertainers, most of whom have tough lives financially and some for whom it has been the opposite. Consider teaming-up with another music major for gigs. The whole is always greater than the sum of it's parts, the saying goes and it's true.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 27, 2018:
This IS an attempt at humor, right? There is a 'Silly, Random & Fun' category; click on the wrong one? Maybe it's different where you live. Even without the Internet, especially for a straight youngster of 62, great women are everywhere. I'll grant that few might be suited well enough to become that special one, but she IS out there somewhere several times. (kind of like with air, expressed in ppm) We males really have SO MUCH MORE FROM WHICH TO CHOOSE and because of their sheer superior numbers alone, it is a lot tougher for women. I'm not even touching on the religiously rooted system of reciprocals they've been stuck with in the process, if they adhere to them. The content of obnoxious, alone for a reason folks is well represented on both sides. With males dying earlier and so many of us arrested in sexual development at 19, even in our eighties and later, women by far have the tougher 'row to hoe'. One thing that will probably help you is that you project a sensitivity, almost vulnerability, in your post. It should endear a lot of women. :) Good fortune in your endeavor.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 27, 2018:
Religious and political ideologies are functionally identical. They are prescribed sets of doctrines for which price of membership is abdication, all or in part, of individual reasoning faculties and subordination to the thinking of 'leaders'. Sad that so many who've abandoned phony religious organizations are so blind to their bondage to political pastors.

Listening to the news and there is a large problem called Trump.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 27, 2018:
Want a suggestion do you? I suggest that you consider 'listening' to *real* news. It takes individual effort to find it though. CSPAN helps a little. For all of the boo hooing, FOXNEWS, unlike CNN, MSNBC, NYT et al. Isn't having to retract stories every few weeks. Al Jazeera and RT are pretty good too. Our domestic pap passing for news is mostly distraction; kinda like a Punch and Judy show for the kids. People hear lots about supposed 'trade wars' just around the corner, Stormy Daniels, poor children at the border about twenty years late and they sop it up like manna. Watch the hearings in congress if you want to see real news. Uninterpreted, non-spoon-fed events are a great way to exercise individual judgment. If you want to cry about children mistreated by the United States Government, consider also the FACT that we pay over $10 Million a day to the Israeli regime; making it possible for them to indefinitely detatain and torture Palestinian children and shoot them in cold blood for getting within thirty meters of a fence that keeps them out of THEIR OWN COUNTRY and blockaded inside ghettos like Gaza. You won't see any of that in baby's breakfast either. Trump has many undesirable aspects to his personality, but no more than many of his predecessors. We, non-partisans in the middle ALWAYS determine which partisan candidate will be president. Guess what. We're going to do it again sooner than you think. Polls are as wrong this year as they were in 2016. This November will put safe spaces in high demand because there will be a blue wave with a smallness of staggering enormity. :)
Why can't a man have a friendship with a women like he does with another man?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 27, 2018:
I have a few too few of such female friends. It makes appreciation of them so much greater knowing how rare they are. One in particular is a best friend relationship as close as it gets without sexual intimacy. We once had it as well but mutually recognized some differences in living and outlook that weren't a 'fit' at that level. We are afflicted by religiously and patriarchally based social canon and erroneous notions that prevent both formation and salvation of close heterosexual, platonic friendships. Barriers can be overcome with honest examination and refusing to allow others who are not part of the friendship to interfere. It's no easy task for those who've already succombed to being 'saddled' and branded.
There is no such thing as a 'humble' opinion.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 27, 2018:
It makes good sarcasm, also inverted. I highly prize my opinions because most to almost all are personally thought-out and question specific; excluding as much 'group think' as possible. What passes for personal opinion on most questions today is spontaneous regurgitation of group doctrines and 'identity' based answers that people actually believe are their own; things like talking points.
Question to atheists: Do you attend religious family events or decline on principle?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 27, 2018:
An opinion you want? Non- believers by any title are thought by most devout believers to be morally adrift. Atheists know that morality is inborn and love is instinctual. The best teacher is example. The most eloquent way to express one's morality is to live it assertively and respectfully; honestly answering why. Would you attend a 'religious' based genital mutilation ceremony? For me, polite rejection of being a participant or supporter of rituals, initiations, etc. that are personally disturbing is a moral imperitive. For less harmful or silly custom type occasions like birthdays, Christmas parties or St. Patricks Day nonsense, I don't participate in the ritual aspects of them but don't reject being present either. Honest, straightforward explanations to family and close friends has worked for the most part. Example has worked even better. One close, devout friend in a 'Protestant' cult has told me that he thinks I act more like a Christian than most of the people with whom he attends church. I politely accepted the insult in the kind, loving way he meant it. :)
Soulmates: do they exist?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 25, 2018:
It is only a commonly used term, whatever the etiology, describing a bond so apparently compatible that those experiencing it feel as though 'fate has taken a hand'. Sometimes others call especially compatible people soul mates. Given the size of populations, there must be many people who, under the right circumstances, would qualify. I think the way people bond is similar to how chemicals bond. An atom or compound will have what we used to call (possibly still) an 'outer orbit'. The right number of electrons in that outer orbit was thought to determine the presence or absence of attraction in forming chemical bonds; some more and less complicated and some more and less stable. In living and observing life while also aware that we literally are walking chemistry sets, I see functional similarities in how some people attract for solid bonds and others weaker. Soul mates seem to be the optimal situation but not perfect; there really being no such thing.

We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep."

Silver1wun comments on Jun 23, 2018:
None of us possess an inherent right to be humored in our departures from reality. If I choose to be called Theodore Roosevelt, like you or any other individual, I have the freedom to do so. What we do not and should not have is a requirement of any kind placed upon others to treat it with respect. That is a matter of prevalent manners, but no more. If I want to be atheist, it's my business and right; as would be titling myself His Heathenness. To expect others to address me in such a fashion would cause a great deal of eye rolling. I might be offended by it as well. But I have no privileged power to impose upon them a requirement to address me as 'Your Heathenness'. All males have been female until androgens cause us to develop as males. Females have NEVER been males and, save a few special differentiations, are the better functioning and more survivable humans. For a male to merely 'think' himself to be female is perhaps vivid and real subjectively, but in this real world of life function and scientific fact, the notion is absurd. All of the whining and cross-dressing and hormones and surgeries that can ever be developed will not rid us of the Y Chromosome. All of the pretending and cooperation of others with it we can devise cannot give a male the experience of growing up female or certain circumstantial conditions of extreme vulnerability felt by females. The list goes on but objective reality needs no arguments for the overwhelming majority of people who live it. One cannot define or legislate good or poor manners for others; especially when it is based on fantasy. That is the very battle atheists fight against theologians who try to impose respect and the force of law upon others because of THEIR fantasies. It is just as much a disorder as anorexia. In one case one sees a woman in the mirror. In the other, regardless of how gaunt in reality, one sees fat. Because nobody else sees a person starving as over-weight isn't their deficiency, they might sympathize or try to politely disagree, but they owe no apologies or humoring.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 22, 2018:
Want real children crying and tortured, by the way, in captivity? The US government supports it, so get mad about it too. And while you're at it get mad about the children also shot in cold blood, not for crossing a 'border' but by getting within 30 meters of one. In Gaza, wholesale cold blooded murder us supported by our government and not a single politician has ANYTHING to say about it. This border situation isn't new but it's all the Left has left to distract people from real news going on in Congress every day; real news revealing the vile corruption at highest levels of the FBI and our 'intelligence community'... By all means whiners, don't look at that. I'm sure you won't n0t just because it isn't getting coverage in state/corporate media, but because you really don't want to know. I fully inderstand; having dealt with frightened Christian Fundamentalists who also don't really want to know anything conflicting with what THEIR overseers tell them. November will be a 'come to Jesus' opportunity for all of the sycophants after another historic election victory for the GOP. You don't have to be a Republican to see that.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 21, 2018:
Yes, I think it is expecting too much; at least would be for me. You made reasonable, rational attempts to continue contact and as you described, 'crickets'. Given that we're all relative strangers with no in person contact, to me, it is eloquent and the very benefit sought and appreciated from participation in this site. Loss of interest at this level is almost as much to be celebrated as growing interest. Better focus on people with whom friendships might be cultivated on the basis of common interests is facilitated by messaging 'mind contact' that I think saves a lot of time and energy required for an actual meeting. Another way I like to put it is that it saves a lot of 'frog kissing' both ways. :) I've had interesting text exchanges with many women. Direct conversations disclose how we think; as opposed (for me) to what we think. 'What one thinks' without regard to why, it is an instant flag for me of probable ideological indoctrination; a state of mind functionally identical to theological indoctrination. Conversely, messaging discloses things about me that might be important to initially interested women that move beyond mere atheism that send up flags for them. For examples: An attitude that also rejects rituals of all kinds, a lack of typical respect for, or pursuit of, wealth. Seeing no value in some superficial things like jewelry, fashion, body marking and piercing matters to many women. Rejecting many social mores (gender role related) for both males and females. An opinion that women are our 'kind's' natural leaders is a BIG ONE because it contains a minimum expectation of parity in reciprocals instead of expecting the male exclusively taking the lead. Arrest of interest at any point in the cyber process is a good thing. :) I like the sound of crickets at this level because continuation probably wouldn't have resulted in establishing friendship; especially friendships with intimate bonding potential. If a woman can't think for herself and isn't self-assured enough to initiate or maintain her half of contact I'm not interested anyway. Shouldn't it work both ways? If more men had attitudes similar to this, women would be freed from the discomfort of premature, unwanted advances.

Listening to 'news'? Nope, listening to propaganda about something that is not new in qualitative terms and about an impending 'trade war' also erroneously blamed on Trump. The news isn't being covered. The news is going on in House Chambers where the utter politicization and corruption of the highest levels of the FBI are being clearly revealed in Inspector General testimony about the report released. The deep-state fabricators of propaganda and distraction want it that way. The blind sycophantic consumers of a phony scandal a week club sop it up hungrily to feed a bottomless appetite for substitute, ear tickling 'facts' as valid as their safe-zone shared fantasies. Trump was chosen under our system (which is NOT a Democracy and never has been). Losers whine. That's what they do when they are losers before the contest even begins; when they choose losers for leaders. Not Trump's fault, not the Russians' fault, not Stormy Daniels' fault nor is it anybody's fault but the losers. Losing is what they do. Just wait. It gets better! In November the winners are going to win again and the losers are going to lose again. It's how they 'roll'.

It makes them and those supporting them worthy of any catastrophes that should befall them. It is rational and healthy for any system to protect itself and it's integrity, it's functional definition. Not to do so is AIDS at the socio-economic level. It is a disease of the body social; the body politic and it is fatal.

I am suffering from depression at the moment
Silver1wun comments on Jun 19, 2018:
Depression is a symptom with causes that vary, somewhat like anemia. Without knowing anything about a person, even a wild guess seldom hits the mark. I used to get depressed once in awhile. It was usually the easily identifiable kind called 'anger turned inward' unrelated to things like disability or addictions. Anger happens pretty commonly as a result of frustration from unrealized expectations, sometimes exascerbated by ingratitude. I found one good remedy by accident. Suffering depression after walking away from everything material connected with a marriage many years ago; I was riding a bus to work and was running late. Sitting there silently cursing the buses for always being behind schedule it happened! The beeping sound! Whenever the bus was taking on a person in a wheelchair a little platform SLOWLY extended. The driver had to get out of his/her seat, wrestle the chair into place, secure it with a belt and then FINALLY resume driving! Boy was I pissed now being even later.. Suddenly while regarding that poor young soul bound to a chair, I felt internally embarrassed and really ungrateful. Would I ever in ten lifetimes switch places with him? Being merely late for work shrunk to insignificance. Loss of my car, house and the illusion of them being meaningful at all disappeared; especially knowing that I, unlike the other passenger, would be able to replace them soon. During the rest of the ride new eyes recognized others on that bus with physically apparent barriers that I didn't have. It has stayed with me as a reusable remedy in times of frustration. I've learned that anger management is mis-named. Actually expectation management and gratitude management head-off necessity for it. That includes anger at self. My case as mentioned was about depression not complicated by other issues.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 19, 2018:
Too much information is more of a burden when we store it indiscriminately. I've found that carrying around lots of information about things that are not so vs. actual knowledge - information about things that are so, the load is much more easily managed. Consider how much lighter and freer it was after having uloaded theological myths. It gets even easier by shedding many social mores attached to the erstwhile myths. Divesting oneself of political myths is even better! Information (knowledge) necessary for such evolution is a bit difficult to acquire sometimes but it DOES lighten the 'overload'.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 18, 2018:
Your worst 'enemy' of the natural process of attracting someone worth the investment is WORRY. It is a destructive emotion that will cause you to settle, as in cash-in chips in a game that seems risky to continue just when it is beginning to work. Take the energy wasted in worry and invest it examination and improvement of you. Self love and especially loyalty to self coming from it will make you your best guardian while 'giving off' the most accurate appearance of your self to others. It takes time and courage to avoid distractions like physical or material attractions IF what you want is to have ultimate compatibility and longevity. If you have to 'kiss a lot of frogs' you're kissing way too soon. Also, if what we love only includes our best foot 'put forward', there's still work to be done. When we wholly love and respect ourselves leading with a best foot will feel disingenuous. ....and a bit too worried.
Love or in-love?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 18, 2018:
In just about every application of the verb 'falling', it is something undesirable, often injuring and always in error; frequently occurring in the midst of haste and inattentiveness. Why falling when applied to discovery of love is a positive is some mystery; especially because the phenomenon so glowingly described shows the same results. If a solid, intimate, well thought out and felt relationship is to eventuate, falling just doesn't seem to be a desirable element. Attraction should be cultivated rationally, over time. This optimizes the ability to develop familiarity, depth of respect, affection, trust and real love of a person; not just want of them for how they look or what they possess or what kind of commitment can be secured as a substitute for 'trust'. Falling in love is one of many myths that remain with people even long after they've disposed of belief in other more obvious myths like religions.
This feels true to me.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 18, 2018:
This sentiment is well founded. Social attitudes toward development of a strong, lasting intimate bond are antithetical to it occurring naturally. There is no such thing as 'fast food' yet cutting to the chase out of impatience, before we even know what we're chasing, just to allay anxiety and feelings of emptiness are the rule, not the exception. There is no abundance, no 'shelf-life' what we accept in the rush is often the best available from both sides in the drive-thru, good or not. And oh how exasperating to discover when we're back on the freeway that some items ordered or expected aren't in the bag! No fault finding in this, save destructive conditioning by society and it's (male dominated) institutions.

Those responsible for their care are also responsible for their existence. Directly or indirectly, they are also responsible for them illegally entering our territory. They should be herded back across the border where they entered and become repatriated or illegal guests of the country from which they entered. I think any Christians disposed to care for them should follow them back.
Who has/had the best singing voice of all-time? My vote goes to Whitney Houston.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 17, 2018:
Without criteria on which to base such judgment answers are merely opinion and sentimental. There are two different fundamental bases upon which to evaluate best voice that don't even include elements like phrasing and emotional emphasis. Who can say who is the best? Artists are different in so many ways from one another. Many play an instrument with great virtuosity. I ask do they play the instrument or do they play music? The voice is an instrument through which one can render musical performances. I ask are they using musical compositions to demonstrate instrumental virtuosity or applying virtuosity to a composition in order to render music. A great voice is one that renders not only well practiced instrumental gymnastics but one that honors composer, piece and audience. That said, who can compare with Ella?

Only George saw so many things in such authentically original ways. He literally treated us to how original and critical thoughts feel along with the bitter disappointment that so few others *actually see!* It relates to my favorite DaVinci perspective. He saw us (people) in three categories: 'Those who see, who see when they are shown and those who do not see'.
The government doesn't want us to be well informed.

He was right and what the government wants they have. I see little evidence of critical thought anywhere. Just a lot of swapping one set of isms for another; of uniting with locked arms and locked minds. Sure miss George!

Will Trump win in 2020?

We are on a worldwide stage, showing how agnostics and atheists think and live, and laugh and play.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 16, 2018:
Thinking of non-believers in terms of community feels a bit confining. I share no sense of anything with other infidels except the intellectual waters we've chosen for habitat. It's sort of like salt vs. fresh waters with the brackish waters in-between for agnostics. Rejecting salt doesn't mean that there aren't still a lot of strange fish in the area with whom there is little of anything different to note than when they were in 'the sea'. One example is an entirely common delusion among non-believers that rejection of gods is more than evidence of the *possibility* that one thinks independently. Most of them are still uncomfortable with self-navigating and still prefer moving about in 'schools'; comforted and secure by schools of 'like-minded' fish. Like mindedness is, in fact, often mentioned as a desirable trait in others. Independent, critical thought avoids such safe-zones; seeking rather like interested with differing perspectives to share and compare. It is how learning happens.
I had an epiphany today.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 15, 2018:
The first 'order of business' in learning why and how former attachments failed to meet expectations is to own our part in it. I truly believe that no person can be more than half culpable for failure in a process wherein both parties voluntarily participate. Until or unless honest self-examination is done, responsibility is accepted and forgiveness of both self and the other happen, most people will continue to fail, blame other people's flaws and repeat the process. Some hallmark errors are being distracted by what we perceive to be beautiful and desirable (the storybook falling in love) to the extend that beautiful, unrealistic fantasies are fabricated - both ways. We fixate on this early paclaging and shut-out conflicting perceptions with the erronious notion that the 'love' is stronger and little things can be tolerayed or overcome. Later, as the fantasies beging also 'falling' we find another wrong notion to 'save' what was thoight to be so wonderful called 'working on the relationship'. I liken it to proverbial 'hanging of wall paper with one arm' in a room with two different sets of wall sizes. Relationsjips, as they ate called, like this are never more importamt than the people comprising them. Genuine bonds can be formed if the work is done on the front end, patiently, with love of self and the other and two sets of eyes wide open . No substitute for time exists for some processes. Ask any good cook.
Acupuncture
Silver1wun comments on Jun 14, 2018:
More effective for some problems, like most modalities; including Western Medicine orthodoxy that is symptom focused. When and if a unified approach ever develops most illness will vanish by having been deprived of development fostering conditions. Aberrations will be corrected by an equally unified approach that treats mental, emotional and somatic imbalances together.
I need some advice.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 14, 2018:
At first meeting or before gives the other person the kind of trust that will be vital to anything worthwhile eventuating. If the information 'wards off', so be it. Sooner the better to save time and emotions. I start right out revealing as many potentially 'negative' facts about myself as possible at first meeting or before. (as in bio) If people have a problem with you being you to begin with, that is good! One less set of problems down the road. Healing and reconstruction of psyche take time. One might believe damage to have been overcome but proof is in how you reach out to others. Most aren't going to be forthcoming anyway, unfortunately. Lead by example and just 'spill it'. Love yourself for it.
Psychologist warns Trump's mental state is rapidly deteriorating -- and he may be 'on the boundary ...
Silver1wun comments on Jun 13, 2018:
My concern is that the alleged psychologist is not connected with reality; along with the ignorant, unhinged Social Democrat sycophants for whom nothing is right. The only thing that would make Trump's achievements right with them is if they'd been accomplished by an Obama or Clinton; which history has shown to be an impossibility. If they could have, they would have and all of the whining and sucking of thumbs in 'safe spaces' can't change the fact.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 13, 2018:
The greatest consumption of anything here in the USA isn't of what comes out of faucets OR bottles. It is consumption of the toxic products of television; 'news' in particular. Our whole population is afflicted with Bovis Scatagenetic Syndrome. It is a form of acquired immune deficiency of the ability to reason. Theological fanaticism and Social Democrat Fantasyism are its most lethal and terminal stages.

Astonishing how many people think clearly enough to see through the nonsense called religion while on the other hand fall prey to delusions induced by those controlling news and entertainment media.

Silver1wun comments on Jun 13, 2018:
Who knows about lines, etc..? One can love completely and still find that love alone cannot fulfill what is necessary for sexual intimacy. Feelings like admiration, 100% trust, unconditional respect for their autonomy, physical attraction, unquestionable honesty, self-love and more are necessary to eliminate barriers to sexual sharing and surrender. We can dearly love people who don't love themselves; who hold themselves in less than the highest esteem; who are damaged so that they are incapable of trusting another human being and more. Those kinds of deficiencies don't make them evil, unlovable or undeserving of love sympathy or compassion, but they certainly CAN disqualify eligibility for sharing a sexually intimate bond. In those kinds of cases, love indeed, is not enough.
Weird morning.
Silver1wun comments on Jun 13, 2018:
I'd answer 'Which translation'? There are quite a few and they do differ in subtle ways. Also would answer yes and that I'm grateful for the Bible because by knowing it one can easily see how theologians misuse what is contained in it to advance their counterfeit theological doctrines and values. Most of all how grateful I am that the Bible revealed for me how false, evil and corrupt men who hawk religions are. But for the Bible showing up religions and the sick men who promote the hypocritical institutions they are, I might never have become atheist. I'd say YES by all means read the Bible and ignore theologians twisting of it and you too can ascend to the level of atheist. Have a nice day. :)

Silver1wun comments on Jun 12, 2018:
Does anyone here have the slightest idea what an idiot is? Words DO mean things and misuse of them ought to be as embarrassing as misspellings and grammatical errors; but nooooo. I'd like to say that there are idiots commenting here but that would be impossible because the classic definition would make necessary reading comprehension of moronic remarks impossible. Originally, before rampant misuse, idiot meant a person who'd arrested developmentally between ages 1 and 3. An equally legitimate archaic term 'imbecile' was applied to arrested development between 4 and 7. A moron was a person arrested between 8 and 12. This means the worst insult and misuse of a term one could apply to Donald Trump would be moron, because he is both literate and educated. Since he is a stellar achiever with a great education that he's used to advantage, even moron misses the mark. Morons, however, are capable of many things that surviving in the world require. An adult arrested in their development between 8 and 12 would be reasonably literate; able to pass basic trade licensing exams and drivers' license tests; be capable of driving, breeding and yes, ha ha, VOTING. Morons are adept at sports, gardening, holding down relatively simple jobs in everyday careers and most interestingly, are capable of making asinine comments on the Internet. :)

They can't stand it Terry! He wins at everything he does and they are growling and chewing the draperies and carpets with foam billowing from their mouths. No matter what he does or how he WINS!, they are going to whine and piss and moan. He plays them like an organ grinder allowing them to make monkeys out of themselves. I just hope he has plenty of his own security people working with Secret Service because he is dramatically diminishing their options and they are DESPERATE! I'm neither Repub nor Demo, but am seriously enjoying the way he's turning them into a huge, hilarious animal act. It isn't lost on the general public and the booming economy should result in a bloodbath in November. There will be a 'blue trickle'...

We chose him as president. Not Republicans and certainly not Democrats. The electorate of our Republic chose him and our leaders are ALWAYS determined not by partisans comprising about 85% of the electorate, but folks in the non-partisan mainstream. Thanks for the arse view. The USA has been 'bent over' on trade for decades. Now it is the turn of others. If you want our markets the price just went up to parity; as in fair trade. Don't like it? Sell your mineral resources and manufactured goods elsewhere. We do, all the time.

Jealousy. Is it a lack of self-esteem on the part of the jealous person?
Silver1wun comments on Jun 12, 2018:
Jealousy is very destructive to loving, trusting bonds. It is symptomatic of distrust and lack of thorough understanding of another person primarily. Secondarily, it is proprietory; disclosing a sense of 'ownership' of another person and requirement that the other person's joy in the living of life isn't acceptable unless it comes from the title holder. I'm not talking about sexual or other kinds of infidelity as defined between people, even though that might cause deep disappointment and painful regrets. Disappointment can be equally painful upon discovery that one you trust implicitly in all sitiations doesn't have reciprocal trust in you or doesn't feel joy at your happiness unless it comes only from them.
