"J.P. Hart, no heart, or like the grinch just too sizes too small?  Or is this your way of making a joke? Did you never listen to George W. Bush?  It's a newclear family and a new-cue-lur physicist. I once was a member of the NRA (and…"

How an Eighteen Year-old Bought an AR-15 in Florida

Posted on February 16, 2018 at 3:00am 25 Comments

The following article is not about gun control, per se, as a means of stopping school shootings.  When nothing changed after the shooting of first graders at Sandy Hook most of us despaired of anything meaningful ever happening because of the hold that the arms industry has on Congress.

This is about Florida laws that restrict the sale of pistols to those over 21 while allowing an 18 year old to buy an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle.  Note that the ammunition fired by…

Hope Hicks and the Dark Triad (Prequel to the Temple of Doom)

Posted on February 12, 2018 at 3:00pm 25 Comments



Hope Hicks has had a meteoric rise within the Trump organization. Now, she is in a precarious position because of relationship with one of the men close to Donald Trump.

Who is Hope Hicks, how did she make this rise to fame and notoriety, and how has her position been compromised?



Hope Hicks is a 29 year old…

My father’s older sister, Nellie Roe, was according to my father, who was several years younger, pretty, kind, smart and probably the best of the seven kids.  When Nellie was fourteen she was stricken with typhoid fever and died.

Who knows what Nellie might have accomplished? Given that her grandparents were immigrants, the family lived on a farm in Oklahoma, and that she was a girl born about 1903 probably nothing more than most of us do, but we’ll never…

Bare Soles

Bare Soles

Exposure can be very liberating I’m told. 

However, exposed seldom seems the best state of being.

Going bare leaves one vulnerable.

I got up this morning, barefoot, walked into the kitchen and the cold coming through the tiles on the floor reminded me that, whether souls or soles, we need a little protection.…

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
