Imagine a World

Filed under: opinion, You Tube, Questions, Religion, Atheism, Reason — Scottie @ 13:30

YouTuber Godless Cranium did a collaborative video with the idea of “Imagine a world…” Where other YouTubers added their ideas of what a better world would look like without religions or superstitions.  It is a great video with no swearing or violence or even hatred.    Simply along the lines of the John Lennon Song.  Well of course sad hat god followers who can not stand to discuss their ideas sensibly kept flagging the video and YouTube responded by restricting it, and causing lots of trouble.    You can see that video here where he talks about it.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYmIT6OXPBo .  He asked everyone to mirror the video but I will be danged if I can figure out how with additionally downloading a bunch of software.   But I have this Blog and can mirror his post here.   So below please watch.  Hugs

I am glad you are happy today, sir.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, Reason — Scottie @ 11:00

I am starting to venture out in the van to do errands now that I can walk again and I am feeling better.    This morning I had planned to fill the van with gas for Ron as he works tonight, make a deposit in the bank , and then a quick trip to the grocery store to pick up some pork meats for supper the next three days.   

I left the house very happy, I felt good and felt free, independant.   I have not felt that way in a long time.  It is hard when you have to ask someone else for everything.   So I was in a good mood.

Filling the van with fuel went well, got right in and did it, got right back out.   The roads were pretty clear as it was after morning to work traffic but before morning shoppers.   

I got to the bank about ten after 9 and there was only employees and me so I went right up to the counter.  A wonderfully nice young woman began to help me with my deposit and I mentioned that I needed more deposit slips but no checks as I don’t use them.  She was working away on the things I needed and we were chatting about stuff.  

Then I heard an angry voice beller out “Hey knock it off you two , there are people waiting in line here”!   The tone was belligerent.    My temper began to soar. 

 I should explain something that most wouldn’t know about me.  I have a dangerous temper that when triggered I can lose the ability to calm back down and to rationally deal with a situation.  It is a defence mechanism from my abusive childhood.  Fight first, protect yourself first , regret it later if need be.   I do not like that, and over the last 27 plus years Ron and I have worked hard for me to be better able to deal with my childhood and to control the volcano eruptions of fury.

Feeling my angry rising and realizing I was very close to losing control I had to do something fast.  I had already spun around to see an older man fuming with two ladies behind him.   I locked eyes with the man and pulled my self in hard.  In the same volume of voice I replied to him ” Well hello to you also sir, so great to see someone else so happy this morning”.  Trying to keep my rage out of my voice and myself under control I continued.  “The lady is working, she is handling my transaction.”  “That OK with you, it is alright for me to get my stuff done right”?  The man started stammering and looking around.  The woman behind the counter spoke up and said she was working to assist someone.  I finished with “Now if it is OK with you I will continue with my banking needs and when the machines are done and the nice lady finished I will move on, in the meanwhile it is so wonderful to see someone so happy and joyous in this holiday season”!    

With that I turned back to the counter as I had myself under control again but I knew if the man started again or said something stupid I would totally lose control and one of us wouldn’t be happy at the end of it.   I continued chatting with the lady behind the counter as she worked and she gave me a big thank you smile.  

She finished and I thanked her and wished her a happy holiday and turned again to the man.  His face was very red and I could see he was seething, wanting to say something back to me.  I knew I would blow up if he said something rude or insulting.   So as I was turning I stopped and addressed him directly.  “And you have a very enjoyable rest of your day and a great season”!

At this point the lady behind the red faced man began to laugh and the woman behind her winked at me as I walked by her.   My good humor was restored and my bad temper firmly put away where it wouldn’t ruin mine or anyone else’s day.  I again felt good.  

One last note:   It is hard to see ourselves as others do, as we appear to those around us.    On my drive from the bank to the grocery store I got into a bit of traffic.  The problem was the van ahead of mine was wobbling in their lane and was driving slower than the speed limit.  The van kept hitting the brakes, dropping speed, then speeding up , then tapping the brakes again.    I started to get closer than I normally do hoping the person would get the hint to drive and not fart around.  As I start to mutter to myself, the face of the man in the bank came to my mind and I heard the anger in his voice again.   I Quickly checked myself and backed off, giving the van some space.  I realized I did not know if there was a problem, maybe a medical one, and I figured the person was not doing it to just irritate me on my nice day.   Shortly after the mystery was solved as the van was looking for a particular street and they did not seem to know the area.   

I hope everyone has a wonderful joyful day and a great season.   Hugs.

Debunking the Uranium one lie

Filed under: News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 11:54

Here are some excerpts below. Please read the entire article for a better understanding of what happened. However know this, tRumpsky’s insisting on the justice department to investigate this is simply a political attack on a former political opponent. That is something the USA is not supposed to be involved in doing. This is a distraction as tRumpsky thinks it will divert attention from his campaigns true collusion to a fake charge of one. it is an attempt to get his base to think something happened that did not so as to take the heat of himself for what did really happen. Please do not let yourself be tricked. Learn what really happened. Hugs

. First, the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction. It could do neither.

First, the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction. It could do neither.

Further, neither Secretary Clinton nor the committee as a whole could stop any deal of this kind. The committee members evaluate a sale of anything potentially related to national security. By law, if one member objects, the president and only the president can veto such a transaction. No committee member of the nine objected

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved the sale on November the 24th of 2010 and in doing so, stipulated that no uranium produced may be exported.

So where does the uranium go? Well, the Energy Information Administration or EIA reports that unless special permission is granted by the Department of Energy or other governmental agencies, Uranium One sells the uranium that it mines in the United States to civilian power reactors in the United States.

Even so, the accusation is predicated on the charge that Secretary Clinton approved the sale. She did not. A committee of nine evaluated the sale, the president approved the sale, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and others had to offer permits, and none of the uranium was exported for use by the U.S. to Russia. That is Uranium One.
