A Lot to Take In

Posted on May 26, 2018 at 6:00pm 11 Comments

Georgia Democrats made history this month.  We chose a candidate for Georgia governor who is not only a woman, but a black woman.  Stacey Abrams won easily over Stacey Evans.  She was unopposed for Lieutenant Governor, but our choice is also a woman and married to an immigrant, Italian, but an immigrant, nonetheless.

That all happened on Tuesday, and then we started coming back to earth on Wednesday when we found that the number of Republican votes cast statewide far exceeded…

Something I Found Looking for a Blue Snowball

Posted on May 19, 2018 at 11:13am 15 Comments

I've been shopping for a computer webcam and microphone.  It's been an interesting adventure spurred by the finding that my accessibility software now allows one to use a webcam with a flexible stand in place of a separate closed circuit television for looking at documents, prescription labels and a lot of other things.  The company sells a package of a pretty good webcam and stand with the option of a couple of different bases.  However, i would like a webcam suitable, also, for recording…

It Was Never About the Economy, Stupid

 This is what White Evangelical Christians would like to think they believe in, but is it really? 

  • Following the victory of Donald Trump in 2016 one criticism offered in the postmortem analysis was that Clinton and the DNC made the mistake of engaging in identity politics when the real issue was the economy. Bill Clinton’s…

SBA/RR Challenge, Music, "The Music of Vietnam, 1970-71

Posted on May 14, 2018 at 5:00am 31 Comments

I had hoped to record something that I had performed for the Music section.

Unfortunately, I got a new laptop last week with Windows 10 and I haven't been able to make a video using it.

So, here is a musical memoir of my Vietnam experience.

A recent conversation with an old friend in which she didn’t know the meaning of, and had never heard the…

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 ...

Nice to see you and so many of our O.S. friends here!

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
