GuyKeith comments on Mar 3, 2019:
If you have really studied the Bible, it is not surprising how Christians behave. The "good stuff" is cherry-picked (or just made up), but the overwhelming majority of the Bible is hatred, violence, intolerance, misogyny, and just downright craziness. I have read and studied the Bible, and analyzing...

@GuyKeith, @DharmaBum50 The other part of that is pastors are trained to be motivational speakers. Just like effective drill sergeants, sales people, cheerleaders, coaches, and the like. I realized this when I worked in sales, same type of spiels from the sales managers as from my drill sergeants and my pastors. I read the bible 3 times cover to cover and once in chronological order. Yeah, god is messed up. After reading the story of David's daughter Tamara, no woman should ever be a xian. The contradictions in the bible, they need to make up their damn minds. Never again, and I will fight the indoctrination of my grandbabies as well.

@indirect76 Questions are good, and I appreciate you providing the opportunity to clarify my thinking and for your response. In most places I don't see a need for anyone to carry a loaded weapon. I have grandbabies that I would die for. I'd rather not die for them needlessly because some dolt stuck a loaded gun in his pants and it went off.

HippieChick58 replies on Mar 3, 2019:
@indirect76 Ya know, I took a few minutes to think about this. I am one of the most compassionate people you could ever meet. What this guy did not only endangered himself, but other innocent bystanders as well. I am a proponent of gun control. I spent six years in the Army, I have fired and cleaned an M16A1 rifle. I have an expert badge. I got that badge the year you were born. Guns need to be regulated, gun owners need training and safety courses. Guns should be insured just like cars are. And NO ONE ever dies of embarrassment. I want this man used as an example of really stupid decisions and the need for gun control. I want him used as a horrible example of what can go wrong. I want him used as a warning to others that take the care and handling of dangerous weapons so lightly. I have NO sympathy for him, no one jot, tittle or iota. Jot used as a noun means very little amount. A tittle is a tiny amount or part of something. And iota means an extremely small amount. So no, he does not deserve sympathy or dignity. He lost his dignity when he stuck that weapon in his pants. Do you have any further questions?

I remember walking on top of the snow in my yard. It didn't last long, but it was inconvenient while it was there. I also remember not having AC in my house, we really didn't need it. Sometimes I wish I still lived there.

What is "420"???
HippieChick58 replies on Mar 2, 2019:
Various urban legends have grown up around the meaning of 420 and its connection to marijuana, but the true story behind it is surprisingly prosaic. In the early 1970s, a small group of hippie stoners at San Rafael High School in California used to meet at a designated location every day at 4:20 p.m. to smoke weed. They did this so regularly that members of the group—who called themselves the Waldos—began using the expression "420" as a euphemism for toking. The catchphrase spread beyond their immediate circle, beyond the high school they attended, and ultimately beyond California. Within a decade or two, pot smokers across the country were using it.

HippieChick58 replies on Mar 1, 2019:
My recipe is more complicated than that. It does have coconut oil, but also shea butter and beeswax. The beeswax will keep it from melting off right away. I don't use baking soda but Diatomaceous earth and arrowroot powder. Mine has worked well through the years, but I don't live in Arizona and usually manage to stay in climate controlled areas.

@Jk1960 I don't know if it is education, because I also saw it in Japan and Korea, and I know it happens and happened in Germany as well when I was there. Germany in the 80s had "gastarbeiters" guest workers from Turkey. The discrimination was brutal, much like the Jim Crow era in the US. I don't "need" to know why it exists, I know it does exist and it is wrong. It is also hard to change.

HippieChick58 replies on Feb 25, 2019:
I like to go to definitions when there are disagreements just so everyone is on the same page. RACISM: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. "a program to combat racism" synonyms: racial discrimination, racialism, racial prejudice/bigotry, xenophobia, chauvinism, bigotry, bias, intolerance; the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. "theories of racism" I agree that racism is not tied to a political party, however it seems to be thoroughly entrenched in the Republican party, notable exceptions being Ben Carson among others. And yes, Racism is not limited to white folks. Japan and Korea have some issues with racism, they don't like mixed race babies especially if they are mixed black babies. At least that is they way it was when I was in the military and stationed in Japan. I do agree that those who make a living off of racism or promote racism are racist. How can they not be?

Fascinating! And way to accurate. Most medical treatment is developed for men. Signs for heart attacks for women are different than for men. What gets advertised. Medicines are calculated for men. Surgical equipment built for men. It goes on and on.
HippieChick58 replies on Feb 24, 2019:
@DiegoDonJuan My location is mentioned, all you need to do is hover, I am in the middle of the US, just north of you. Most medical research has been done on men. Yes, women are a major consumer of healthcare, especially younger women, that comes from having babies. Yes, studies now are looking for women, because studies for the last 50+ years were done on men. I work in the health care field, I am a mother and grandmother, I have children your age. The fact that studies have been done mostly on men has been established for most of my lifetime. Women are chronically undertreated by health care. If a man complains of pain he his medicated to the gills. If a woman complains she is seen as a whiner and left to suffer. It is well established and well documented. Things are now changing, but it is coming slowly.

@Janiesuper I don't know if there is an average novel, and I'm horribly bad at keeping track of time. I am guessing that this novel took about 7 hours, and I read pretty fast. I started reading it Thursday evening and stayed up too late, then Friday night and a couple hours this morning. I was reading Circe. https://books.google.com/books/about/CIRCE.html?id=Vu8vDwAAQBAJ=frontcover=kp_read_button#v=onepage&q&f=false My oldest daughter had read it or was reading it, so I checked it out of the library.

@demifeministgal I live with two kitties, they're both under 3 years old. They are wonderful, they make me laugh, they make me get out of bed. The younger kitty is a "fetch" kitty. I can toss one of her toys and she will run after it and bring it back to me to throw again, it entertains us for hours. I am definitely a loving cat mama. However, SamSam is at that wonderful age where everything is new!!! And as her mama is my daughter, if you know your biology, the egg that became SamSam was formed in her mama when she was formed in me. Therefore SamSam was actually part of me. I have two grandchildren, SamSam's cousin is Austin. SamSam is two, Austin is 10 months. I'm crazy about him too, but he's not quite as interactive as SamSam yet. But that they were both part of me is just so encompassing, I am overwhelmed with the love I have for these babies. I loved all my girls, being mom was my thing. But to be Grammy is so much more than being mom was. Yeah, I love my kitties, but I definitely don't love them as much as SamSam or Austin.
