Waiting For the Other Shoe To Drop

Posted on December 13, 2017 at 5:06am 8 Comments

Being someone who has the capacity to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the Democratic victory in Alabama seems too good to be true. 

Roy Moore declined to show the good grace of conceding the election to Doug Jones.  He cites uncounted military and rural votes.  Roy Moore lost by 1.5 percent of the vote.  Had all of the 1.7 percent that went to write-in candidates gone for Jones the margin would have been over 3.2 percent.

There will be no automatic recount.  A…

One Sentence for Discussion on Adam Smith's Philosophy

Posted on December 12, 2017 at 6:00am 15 Comments

If Adam Smith were to appear today he would be distressed to find that, while his work, “The Wealth of Nations”, significantly affected the course of history and supported the development of what later came to be known as capitalism, he would be distressed to find that his earlier work, “The Theory of Moral Sentiments”, has been largely misunderstood or completely…

I Finally Understand the True Meaning of Midwinter Solstice

Posted on December 10, 2017 at 12:37pm 18 Comments

 

As I lay in bed last night I understood for the first time the meaning of winter solstice; the reason for prehistoric astronomic calendars.  I understood why Saturnalia (Yule, Midwinter) got usurped by Christmas.

It’s been a hell of a week.

This past Monday I came down with some intestinal affliction that had me sleeping…

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
