A Very Brief History of the Civil War Courtesy of President Trump

Posted on October 13, 2018 at 6:39pm 7 Comments

 

There are a host of things about the president that are objectionable, but perhaps the greatest is his disdain for education, history and factual accuracy.

In this address at a rally in Ohio Trump explains that Robert E. Lee was a great general, that he was so great that Abraham Lincoln had a “phobia” about the problem. …

Monday Night:

There weren’t a lot of choices of motel rooms that would take pets. This one would take pets and seemed safe. I left the clean, but somewhat rundown old motel room and headed toward the dark shadow at the end of the back row of rooms where I had been told there was an ice machine. To my left a voice told me, “It’s…

The three bedroom house I grew up in had one bathroom, a living room, a dining room and kitchen.  The house was cooled in the summer with an attic fan and the only heat in the winter came from a space heater in the bathroom, one in the dining room, and the gas range and oven in the kitchen.  The living room had a wood fireplace that seemed to make the room colder.  Consequently, the living room stayed shut off from the dining room in the winter. The bedrooms in winter were…

What Brings You Peace in the Midst of Storm

This morning I was looking for President Trump’s statement that the FBI could investigate anything about Kavanaugh.  I found several related videos on Fox News, CNN and CBS News, but not the one I wanted.  The specter of Kavanaugh’s confirmation haunts me day and night.  I can’t seem to let it go.

 

In the mix of those videos was this.…

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
