I've been widowed for five years following a 20-yr. marriage. My late wife had dementia for several years. Seek someone kind for dating, companionship, and hopefully leading to a long-term relationship. Am now retired. My politics are very left-wing, Bernie Sanders-type socialist. Partner would have be at least liberal. Dating range is women age 55-70. See my profile questions and answers to find my interests, but I'll list some of them at the end. But first, I'll save some time listing what seem to be the usual deal-breakers with most women

The proof is the pudding.. how about just stitched on the sweat shop clothes.
TomMcGiverin comments on Jul 7, 2021:
No fucking shit..... And some of the blame also goes to consumers, both middle class and above, who voted with their dollars to support this outsourcing of jobs instead of continuing to pay a little more and buy from the American suppliers that were still available early in this outsourcing process. Every spending decision we make as consumers is political, whether we realize it or not....

TomMcGiverin comments on Jul 5, 2021:
I agree with your point. I think that nowadays the site has way fewer active members than a year or more ago, and that the admin. has flown the coop. We no longer get emails from the site with alerts for new posts for groups we are in or responses to our comments and posts. So it appears the site is running on autopilot. I have been thru this before with another discussion site, and eventually that site was overrun by scammers posting their ads on it to the point the site became unusable. I hope that doesn't happen here, but if it does, I won't be surprised.

And if we had a free and fair mass media, instead of the corporate media of gatekeepers and apologists for the ruling class, they would call the Repubs on these fake terms, but we don't. So they get away with using these terms unchallenged, and most of the sheeple fall for it.

TomMcGiverin comments on Jul 3, 2021:
I might feed the tip jar like her, but I would be unable to refrain from calling the customer a Karen and telling her off in every way the helpless employee couldn't, knowing full well that if a manager got involved, I would not be penalized for defending the employee as long as I didn't cuss, assault the other customer, or threaten to do so. The manager would probably privately thank me later and I would not be scolded for confronting the other customer.
Stole this from a friend.
TomMcGiverin comments on Jul 3, 2021:
My late wife was married to an addict before me. They had a long and even sometimes happy marriage, but in the end, she had had enough of the turmoil and struggles, so she kicked him to the curb (figureatively) once she was able to survive on her own. And just as she expected, he died alone and drunk far from home, attempting a geographic cure where he thought he could start over again. The cops found him dead and alone in a hotel room. She found out because her name was still listed as his emergency contact in his wallet, so they called her. By then, he was so estranged from his daughter, that she wasn't listed in his ID papers, and my wife had to call her with the news. She wasn't really surprised either.
Born on the Farce of July: The Lie of MAGA Patriotism
TomMcGiverin comments on Jul 3, 2021:
Good essay. He spells out exactly what I have always hated about what I call rah-rah fake patriotism, the kind promoted by the actual fascists and the country music crowd in their songs. With few exceptions, country music has always blindly supported America's wars and blind patriotism as well. Most of its fans are not exactly the most educated and brightest bulbs.

Those are very valid reasons why some people can't work outside their home. But for right wingers, these are merely excuses, since right wingers see the unemployed as being morally failed people and undeserving of any sympathy or help, that is, until they themselves are unemployed. Then, it suddenly becomes someone else's fault, not theirs. They are hypocrites of the highest order.

TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 28, 2021:
Because there's one kind of treatment for protestors against the status quo and the rights of the underdog, and another for protestors supporting the rights and rule of the ruling class. Why is there a difference? Because the police have always been more about protecting the wealth, property, and safety of the ruling class rather than doing the same for the peasants.
Good, very good.

Black Christian Stockholm Syndrome
TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 27, 2021:
Reminds me a little of that scene in Cool Hand Luke where the prison warden tells Luke he is only being cruel to Luke " for his own good". The difference here is that, for the black Christian, they really believe their slavery to the religion is for their own good. In the movie Luke, instead, knew the line was BS, and told the warden, sarcastically, " I wish you'd quit being so good to me"... Of course the warden, being the sadistic MF that he is, hits Luke twice and yells at him to never talk to him that way again, "Nevah, nevah!"....

Terri Conley: We need to rethink casual sex | TED Talk
TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 26, 2021:
Usually, I don't watch TED talks that are posted here on Agnostic, as they are normally an hour long or more. Fortunately, this one was shorter and to the point. One thing I got from this is that Americans are very irrational about sex, which I already knew. And I bet that the more religious they are, the more irrational they are about sex. Secondly, the talk makes it clear that the myths are all about morality that is imposed on sex and those that practice it in non-conforming ways. Nothing new there either that I hadn't already known. We would all be better off if we took morality out of our attitudes about sex and kept it focused instead on just two things, which are, whether people are honest with others about their sexual practices, such as cheating, etc. and secondly, that sex should be between consenting, informed parties who are not exploiting others. Lastly, the main value imposed on sex should be practicing it safely for the protection of self and others from disease, but abstention should not be the primary method for achieving that.

Who else identifies as an introvert?
TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 15, 2021:
Not me, but I generally prefer one on one interactions rather than a group social situation. I am more comfortable and relaxed in the former situation where I can go with the give and take and concentrate better on the conversation. As I understand it, a true introvert would prefer alone time to even a one on one social situation. I enjoy some alone time, but I enjoy time with a friend or partner more.
Genesis of Homeless by Mr. Hefferman (?
TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 15, 2021:
None of this surprises me. We would have little to no homelessness if we had socialism instead of bare knuckles capitalism. Any liberal who chooses charity over socialism as a way to combat homelessness and poverty is being selfish and willfully in denial.

TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 11, 2021:
I have never had the looks to be a sugar baby, boy toy, or gigilo, and even if I did, I wouldn't try it. I don't have enough money to be an attractive sugar daddy to a woman, and even if I did have the bucks, I wouldn't agree to it. I take a lot of pride in my personal integrity and also in seldom allowing anyone to use me in a romantic relationship. I still get fooled by women from time to time in the dating game, by them standing me up or convincing me they are interested when they are not, but nobody is able to use me in a dating relationship since I was in my early 20s and wised up from the experience. In dating or an LTR, if a woman is working or has her own money, I insist that she pay her own way on expenses, so that way there is no ? or chance of someone being used financially. If they're too poor to do that, then maybe they aren't at my level financially, and we aren't compatible. I have heard it goes both ways, and plenty of women have told me they won't date a man who is too poor for them and requires them to have to continually "level up" the finances so that he can afford to go on trips or other expensive things with them.

TomMcGiverin comments on Jun 2, 2021:
The Repubs know the difference too, they just constantly lie about who the fascists and terrorists are and aren't. And the corporate media is glad to play along with them and never challenge their lying, since the corporate media hate and defame anyone from the left who challenges the status quo.

TomMcGiverin comments on May 21, 2021:
I'm at an age and stage in life that I have little interest in marrying again, but am open to it if the right woman is really interested in adding that step. But to answer the ? in a general manner regarding how I felt when I was younger and interested in marrying for the first time, I would say the answer is B, Six months is just not long enough to know if someone is right enough for you to marry, esp. if you have not lived together yet. I really think most people need to live together for at least a year or two before they can realistically know if they are compatible enough for the long haul. Living together is a whole other experience from living apart, at least in my experience.

How do you feel about unvaccinated people singing (maskless) along with every song at a concert, ...
TomMcGiverin comments on May 14, 2021:
I make an exception for one anti-vaxer, that I will sit with her at karaoke, because she lives a very isolated life, her job is a home business and other than going shopping or being around her kids, she has little chance to get Covid except at the weekly karaoke show I join her at. The other people I sit with at karaoke are all vaxed and I feel safe with them. As far as singing at karaoke shows, I seldom sing from my table while others are singing, esp. if they are really good. As a karaoke singer, I really resent it, because I'm actually pretty good and usually serious about my songs, when people at their tables sing loudly along with me during the song. Esp. if they are sitting right in front of the stage area. It's very distracting and some people have done this so loudly I could barely hear myself during MY SONG. In those cases, I have always informed the karaoke host how much this pissed me off and how rude this is. And in case the host doesn't follow up with the offender, I have always shared my feelings with them and made it clear that I will be singing as loud as I can when THEIR turn to sing comes up, assuming they have the guts to sign up and sing. I have found that few karaoke hosts have the balls to confront these jerks, so I take it upon myself. If I sing from my table at a karaoke show, I keep my volume down and make sure I am sitting far enough away so that the singer on the mic can't hear me. As for audience members singing at a concert or live music at a restaurant or bar, I generally refrain from singing along with them, unless it's clear they are inviting a sing-along.

I wasn't surprised at all, the same way Obama not even trying to pass card check for union organizing when he started out with a supermajority in both houses, told me that he was a liar and a sellout on everything he said in the 2008 campaign.
