"I used the A-word when I came-out to my mormon family, but if I had it to do over, I would not.  They are good people, and so I still care that they are wasting time & money on a cult, as well as indoctrinating children into the cult. I…"

"I can't remember who it was who said it, I think it was Sam Harris, but the term atheist is just the noise people have to make when surrounded by theists. You don't have to announce yourself as a non astrologer. "

Daniel W commented on Donald R Barbera's blog post The “A” Word
"What I say depends on the setting.  I'm obviously atheist.  But since I can't discuss such things in the workplace, which is 95% of all of my social interaction, when it comes up I say "I'm not religious" or…"

Donald R Barbera commented on Donald R Barbera's blog post The “A” Word
"Freethinkers--I'm inclined to take the same stance as you. I just attach no importance to whether or not there is a god. To me, it isn't worth the breath it would take to make a point that will never be accepted by religionists unless they…"

The “A” Word

I have long ago grown weary of euphemisms used to blur, mislead or hide actuality. For instance, once I am dead, I died. I did not “pass on;” “go to a better place” or “transition.” I died. Although, I have a personal euphemism that I like, some people would not like hearing that I “croaked.” My thoughts about using the word…See More

Emotion Commotion, Agh!

Posted on March 22, 2015 at 5:19pm 6 Comments

A few years ago, I am sure that someone slipped into my house and drugged me. I don’t know what they gave me, but it has turned me into an emotional wreck. That has to be the case. Simply said, I was drugged because the person I am now would be despicable to my former self. It may not seem a big deal to some, but lately…

The Biggest Part of Me

I'm a joker

I'm a smoker

I'm a midnight toker . . .

Some people call me the space cowboy; some call me the gangster of love . . .

I'm none of those, although I might just be a bit of a joker. If you must choose how to label me, I made a short list. I am a published author, a million dollar sales manager, a musician capable of playing woodwinds, brass and keyboards, a marksman, a journalist, a teacher, a…

Okay. I tried to sucker you thinking this was going to be about prostitutes or at least the ones familiar to all of us. However, this about the so-called red-light traffic management systems used around the country and how they are full of whole for legal challenges, but to challenge the accuracy and effectiveness of…

Thanks, Donald, for the link to the music. I like the way you phrased the music appreciation via education. I always seek out your posts.

Thanks, Donald.  Needless to say, I'm the guy with the Brooklyn accent.  Rev Jones is the cowboy and the pompous bombastic asshole is the imam.

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!
