I am retired from working as a social worker/counsellor for 48 years. I am an atheist very involved in political economics, social action and politics. A friend once described me as an iconoclast -- smasher of sacred cows -- because of my tendency to see a different point of view.

I used to be a credible athlete and still can perform in some sports at a credible level. I am handy with tools and home renos. I am a voracious reader of many subjects. Last summer my ex-wife, kids. and grandkids went to a resort together where we had a wonderful time on the beach, skiing, boating, tubing, canoeing, and eating!

Lier lier pants on fire, there is NO self checkout for Food Stamps 😂😂😂
ToolGuy comments on Dec 13, 2019:
I never self-checkout. At any store. If I go to that section, I ask the attendant to check me out. S/he is always pleased to do so.
Teach children about the real world
ToolGuy comments on Dec 13, 2019:
I know this is for laughs but it is actually about the Libertarian-inspired Neoliberalism designed to reduce our confidence in politicians and other public servants. Voter suppression through humour.

ToolGuy comments on Dec 13, 2019:
Now the challenge will be to stay out. If you are able to get some counselling it might be valuable.
Not all men, but, why are so many men rude online, and do not have basic manners when messaging ...
ToolGuy comments on Dec 13, 2019:
Not all men. But I guess when you have such experiences you wonder about everybody. Too bad. I have NEVER behaved that way and most men I know do not. Many here do not. And @Castles is also wrong. Everything from a man’s point of view is NOT about sex or money. Anymore than it is for women. Some yes. But these kinds of generalizations are very sad.

Blood Now 2 Percent Of Total U.S. Exports — Surpassing Corn Or Soy

I doubt he said that. The internet was not known in his lifetime.

ToolGuy comments on Dec 12, 2019:
So much for the bible followers’ claim of 6000 years old being our species age! The evidence continually mounts to contradict that.
Sexy and Classy?
ToolGuy comments on Dec 11, 2019:
Artistic and classy. Not really sexy! Maybe I am too old! Lol

ToolGuy comments on Dec 11, 2019:
Still struggling with it but much better. I suffer fools more gladly now. I am no longer optimistic about humans.
About time! [montreal.ctvnews.ca]
ToolGuy comments on Dec 11, 2019:
This is a bad idea. Churches are community centres and those of us fighting climate crises and other social ills use their space for meetings because the fees are affordable for us. If the prices go up it will be harder to organize against oppression. Governments have already banned charitable donations to activist groups or organizations as income tax deductible. It is yet another furthering of the economic society in which we live.
Happy Hump Day all!!!

ToolGuy comments on Dec 10, 2019:
Orange. And then noticed @ProudMerrie's response. So not to repeat hers I will add that my political party uses orange for its colour! I also like Pantome 3272 which is a form of turquoise or aqua blue.

Police Chief Tears Into Ted Cruz, McConnell For Caring More About NRA Than Gun Victims
ToolGuy comments on Dec 10, 2019:
It seems to me that there is another element to this sad story that is being overlooked. Presumably when the deceased sergeant responded to the call, he arrived armed. His weapon was of no use in defending himself yet he was a trained experienced officer required to keep his skills up-to-date. It belies the argument that having a gun is defence against criminals.
Hopefully this isn't a repeat question, but what are your thoughts on the Elf on the Shelf? My ...

What album had the biggest impact on you as a teenager?
ToolGuy comments on Dec 8, 2019:
No album but Blues In the Night and It has been a Hard Day’s Night by the Beatles. I used to work the night shift as a teen-anger in a 24/7 gas bar.
This is good advice. Plus a basic truth.

ToolGuy comments on Dec 7, 2019:
What is the purpose of the tax? This is one of the problems. People do not understand the purpose of taxes. They are NOT to raise revenue except maybe municipally or stateside.
What are your objections to the fine tuning argument for the existence of god

No argument from me about that.
I just came across this. Too good not to share. Totally something I'd do..... [dangerousminds.net]
ToolGuy comments on Dec 7, 2019:
This is really old news. No longer current. We have changed our printed currency to be harder to counterfeit and there is a different picture on the 5 dollar bill. And @Athena I doubt if we would be going to all the trouble of changing our currency if a cashless society were that close to being in the works. The banks would hate it because there likely would be demonstrations and protests unless the poor and homeless had free debit cards and accounts. At least I would try to mobilize that. And I am sure you would march with me! Lol
Could it be that humanity is missing its sense of community; from being around campfires and at ...
ToolGuy comments on Dec 7, 2019:
I belong to several communities aside from my disparate family. Politics and social action groups. We meet often and socialize together. Today I will attend a Xmas celebration with a members of PACA which is about taking action on climate change. My role is usually to point out the political-economic factors that most cannot or will not understand.

ToolGuy comments on Dec 6, 2019:
Not mentioned is that my pix with my 35 mm DSLR when loaded onto my Mac are shared with my iPad and my iPhone. I found it easy to use so never took a course or had anyone show me. There are how-to magazines some of which are called things like iPhones for Seniors. Lol

ToolGuy comments on Dec 6, 2019:
In the late 60s and 70s whenever the micro mini skirts were happening, I was a lusty, single, young man in an office with over 60 people and three males. The temptations were huge and numerous not to mention the clothing — or lack thereof! — was very provocative I never tried. Somebody once said not to dip your pen in the company inkwell. A Disney movie?
