"“Bust out joint?” That actually sounds like a pretty good description of Bain Capital. Not that Romney would have done that to the government itself. "

Best Description of the Trump Presidency Yet; A "Bust Out Joint"

Posted on June 18, 2018 at 7:14am 7 Comments

I got an email from the Dailykos recently with this story.  The person who wrote it is from Chicago and claims to be very familiar with mob terminology.

New York lawyer’s description (on MSNBC) of the Trump presidency: "The Trump Presidency is a bust out joint."

For those not familiar with mob terminology, it works like this.  The mob – through coercion or loan shark debt – takes over a business.  They then buy, using the business’s good credit, as much as possible.  When the…

One Question for a Saturday Morning;

Posted on June 16, 2018 at 9:24am 15 Comments

Given the fact that Trump has told blatant untruths at the rate of 6.44 per day (as of May 1, 2018) since entering office, and given the fact that the intent is to destroy America’s trust in the media (a fundamental pillar of democracy) should Trump’s untruths not be called lies?

The Queen and Megan Markle Go Out in Public

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 9:17pm 14 Comments

This morning’s news included a feature about Queen Elizabeth II taking Meghan Markle on her first Royals excursion.  Her Royal Highness seems to be charmed with Prince Harry’s choice in a bride.  That’s good.

Approximately a month ago both the Washington Post and the New York Times ran articles…

What If We Cast Lots to Choose Our Representatives in Government

Posted on June 12, 2018 at 6:58am 10 Comments

Humans as a species seem to enjoy complaining about what is, more than they do addressing the problem.  Perhaps it is because there are so many problems and that many of these problems seem to pose insurmountable obstacles to change.  Complaining is easier, and there is a certain comradery that comes from being fellow sufferers.

Five hundred years or so ago a Roman Catholic priest proposed changes in the way things were done by the church.  Martin Luther’s demands were not met because…

Rodney, I don't quite understand who all can read a  comment wall.  I'm glad we friended just in case you ever want to comment on my posts because I have had to limit comments on my posts to friends because there are some non-friends here who cannot respect my notice to them that they refrain from commenting in my posts' comment section and i will not not comment in theirs.

And oddly I cannot at moment find your comment to me to which I am now responding.  Anyway, I'm no longer young in body either, though not too much vision impaired yet, I make plenty of typos and ommissions.  I had thought we were already friended but when I went to msg you, saw we weren't.  

I wanted to bring this sentence you wrote in "Something Happening  .." to your attention thinking perhaps spell check had put in a word you didn't intend.

"Flake joins a growing number of Republicans voiding (voicing?) outspoken opposition to Trump."

That's as far I got reading the post so far, will read later in evening.  I like how you write and usually what you write about.  I too am a science major, chemistry and taught high school biology, chemistry, physical and ag sciences.  I sort of minored in philosophy and religion and though went through college without ever taking a history course, have since for decades been enchanted with such.  I'm not a mediator I'm pretty sure, especially when it comes to politics, and, when it comes to economics i'm no fan of capitalism, Wall Street or land speculation.

Thanks for your reply, see you in the line up, 

mokii

(the name moki ikom has no meaning that i know of other than what one may make of it, but i've used it in some form or another for many years on line,, i do know someone named moki and that's how it started for me)

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
