The Paradox of Prayer | Why Praying Is Pointless – YouTube

Filed under: Atheism, Ideas, People I like, Reason, Religion — Scottie @ 18:56

I seen this young man on the Friendly Atheist blog. I was greatly impressed with his clear manner of speaking. I also was impressed by his knowledge of the subject. I find him easy to listen to and he seems thoughtful. I have watched almost all of his videos that are listed on his YouTube channel. In this video he expresses the same thoughts on prayer I have had. I admit he says them much better than I did. I would love to know how you guys see his presentations and his grasp of the material.

People keep talking about the high cost of health care.   Well this is one of the reasons health care costs are soaring out of reach for many people, raising the price of insurance , and causing states to cut back on care for the poor.   There is no need for this much greed.  When the cost to produce a drug doesn’t increase or does so at a minor amount then raising the price of the drug to these amounts is simply greed.   There is too much profit in healthcare.   Health care should not be a for profit industry.   The fact is Epipens are life saving medication for many people.  I have to have them.  I am deadly allergic to some foods, and I can not always make sure I don’t get them when we go out to eat.   Once I was looking at some spanish rice and I was told it had no seafood in it.   I took some.  However it did.  It had shrimp in it.   I when into anaphylactic shock, my air way closed off, my mouth blistered and my lips swelled up.  I did not have my Epipen with me.  Lucky for me the hospital was just down the street and Ron rushed me to the E.R.     So I think the idea of making a much needed drug cost so much that people can’t afford it will cost lives, and lives shouldn’t be traded for profit.   Hugs

Stop right there.

Come Home (Cardinal Pell) by Tim Minchin (with lyrics) – YouTube

Filed under: Children, Dealing With Abuse, Harm, Health, Sad — Scottie @ 19:10

I can’t stop crying even after I heard this song many times.  It seems to never go away.   Even on the good days it is there and at night it comes unexpected and you spend a night without sleeping, again.    Ron just came in and before I could turn all the way away from him, grabbed me and turned me around demanding to know why I was crying.  All I could stammer was “that song” while pointing at my screen.   He was at a loss as to what to say.   It is hard for them, those who love us.   For my friends, I won’t name you, but you know who you are who suffer also.   Many hugs.

Donald Trump Jacked Up His Campaign’s Trump Tower Rent Once Somebody Else Was Paying It

This man is disgusting.  Once the donors were on the hook for the bills, he tries to get as many of the bills owed to himself as possible and then jacks up the costs.   This post makes clear the many things we know he raised the cost of, there must be many things we don’t know about that he pays himself for.   He is going to make his money back one way or another I guess.   Also what bothers me the most I think is that if he is so eager to take advantage of people who donate to him now, what will he do if he was president.  How badly would he scam the people then.   If he could he would suck all the money out of every government program and endeavor to pay himself for it.  I am surprised he is not already claiming he needs a higher Presidential salary.  He is not saving the people money now that they are paying his tab, what makes anyone think he will save the average wage earner anything.   Hugs
