“Delusional.

You know, it's been at least 20 years since a conservative candidate for anything came to my door to campaign. Liberals and greens make the effort, but conservatives make the party faithful come to them and try to keep the non-faithful out. It's no wonder they are so out of touch.”

“One of my regrets about cancer treatment is that I didn't get a photo of myself with one of my brothers while my hair was growing back. It came back in the exact reverse of his male pattern baldness, and for a few weeks, we looked like twins.”

“I think Stephen was talking about clinical depression there, but that's still a good point. This article does not take into account that some people are down because of a chemical imbalance in the brain and need more than cheery music and positive thinking.

On the other hand, one can keep ordinary grouchiness at bay by doing something to relieve tension and taking note of the good parts of each day.”

“And really let them go. Not just physically, but don't give them any head space either. One of the most unhappy people I know separated from her husband, but spent the next 8 years fuming about what he'd done to her.”

“Yes. Happiness is something that tends to turn up when you're healthy, just busy enough, and can appreciate little things.”

“I fear you're missing the point, MJinCanada. The point is that happiness is a practice we can choose to cultivate. It's not just something that "turns up" in a manner that's outside of our control (though that can happen as well).”

And who was measuring cold snaps specifically more than 2000 years ago? Climate data from tree rings, ice cores, lake sediment, etc., can estimate a general average temperature, not the daily highs and lows.”

“That's so very true. Some states depend on boom-and-bust resource economics. Some have bigger infrastructure costs. Without the federal government, there wouldn't be major hydroelectric dams and interstate highways or major ports -- all of which are vital to the economy. Or, for that matter, a means of tracking dangerous criminals across the country.

If the extreme right undermine the federal government, the US would disintegrate because there'd be a theocratic confederation running up the middle from Texas. And a lot of the rest of the country would be ruled by dominant corporations.”

“Actually have you heard of "alec" I don't remember right off had what the letters stand for but it is a club that big corporations and companies pay to belong to. State legislators also pay to belong to this conservative club. I just heard of it today on NPR because leaked documents outed them to the american version of the Guardian. What do they do and what happens there? Well apparently it is a 40 year old organizations that allows these business interest to get together and come up with legislation to present to their member legislators. They then get to vote both the legislators and the special interest groups on what legislation to bring to their states houses for a vote. So in effect any strongly conservative states could be governed by these corporations already. With resent legislation passed in Kansas I am starting to believe the government of Kansas has already sold their sole to them.”

“So, how many generations did it take before your family was American?

George II might have been born in Germany, but his grandson George III was born in England, and so were George's children, including Edward, Victoria's father.

If Victoria was German, not English, then Ronald Reagan was Irish, not American. He was only 3rd generation too.”

“I think the reference was to the shepherds camping out overnight.

In those days the pasture land wasn't fenced, so shepherds had to be with the flocks day in and day out. Even in medieval England, shepherds would be buried with a lock of wool so that God would understand why they'd so seldom been to church.

It was traditional to take sheep (or other livestock) out to higher land away from the villages in summer, and keep them closer in sheltered valleys for the winter. People still do this in places like Nepal.”

“I cannot imagine Martin Luther being so jolly as to put candles on a tree. The man considered giving charity almost sinful, because it could look like one was trying to win brownie points with God, instead of relying on belief alone.

“The more we grow as a people and a nation the more social help we will need. We are supposed to be the United States and with the economics of today there is no way any states could stand on its own. Europe has had terrible problems as individual nations trying to weather the storm of he bad economy. If they were truly one nation instead of a loose group bound by a currency maybe they would not have fallen as hard.  We must be a united states, we must be a untied people, and as the pledge goes "indivisible with liberty and justice for all."”

“We are now on our THIRD generation since McDonald's and TV dinners were both introduced in the 1950s. A lot of people have never learned to cook. My sister worked for a community centre doing hot lunches for moms and toddlers and so many were amazed that soup, stews, chili, meatloaf, and simple casseroles could be made from scratch and be delicious. They started a cooking program too, which also led to a class on shopping. There were people who honestly didn't know that bread and milk from 7-11 were so much more expensive, because they didn't have vehicles and the supermarket was so far away. They didn't know that they'd save enough on food to take a taxi home.”

And the produce season itself lasts from mid-June to October. It's preserves, baking and quilts the rest of the time.”
