Christmas. Let it Go.



I really like the Christmas season. I know that some may view that, because I’m an atheist, as being unusual. But, really, I enjoy the season. Yes, we decorate the house, inside and outside, as well as do things like making “Christmas cookies” – sugar cookies, cut in holiday shapes, and decorated.  Some atheists I know think that’s a waste of time or even that somehow, as an atheist, I’m actually giving credence to the myth of Jesus’ birth. I’m not.

Walking Back Stupid



I think this happens to everyone at one time or another: being in a conversation or an online dialogue with someone that, no matter what is said, evidence presented, will not concede that they may be wrong. In fact, it often happens that the person will double-down, and that will usually end any attempt to resolve whatever the issue was to begin with, No one’s perfect and we can all find ourselves being unable to climb out of a hole we ourselves have dug. For some reason, it seems to be easier to keep digging than just to admit to being in error.

Better, Worse, or No Difference?



A little while ago, I wrote this piece about everyday products, in this case burgers, going vegan or at least vegetarian, Meatless burgers. I wrote that I had tried one brand and that they were actually tasty. Not that I want to give up meat for these, but that there was in fact, nothing wrong with them, from a carnivores perspective. I haven;t bout anymore , mainly because when we go to the store, and I think about it, my daughter gives me a “scrunchy face” which indicates “No”. I asked her why and the response was simple: They’re not meat. None of these products have or even claim to have the protein in a simple four ounce serving that meat does.  Also, as I discovered while doing an Internet search on the subject, that none of these substitutes were healthier than just eating meat.

Sometimes, It’s Not As Bad As You Think



I would have to say that in general, I’m not a patient, or positive person. I look at a situation, that looks bad, and it’s not so much that I panic, but I tend to look at it negatively and then attempt to avoid resolving it for as long as I can. Of course, the time always comes when I have to address whatever the problem is, directly. that’s something that recently happened t me.

I’m Sick of the “Impeachment” Circus


I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m sick of all this Impeachment stuff that’s going on in Washington. Why? It’s an investigation in search of a crime, which, so far, the Democrats haven’t been able to show. Yeah, it may be early, but in history, that’s not how impeachment has ever been applied, to anyone. There’s be some 60+ impeachments in our history, two of them being Presidents. The remainder, were people like Federal judges. In every case, there were specific charges voted on by the House of Representatives before it went to the Senate for a trial.
