You wrote as a comment on my blog titled 'personal responsibility':

"Consider the words you borrowed from someone you didn't acknowledge:

As long as we are living the only power over us is that which we allow."

Tom, The idea is hardly new but from whom did I plagiarize?? I take it seriously, and I looked online to double check and found no quote that I failed to attribute.

Hey Tom, you said I borrowed words without acknowledging their source. From where??

I'm asking here instead of bumping an old post. I only just read the comments.

Thanks Tom. 

I have lost whole, complicated, entries due to the damn system selecting something and deleting it.  Didn't know about the control-z, thanks.  Since initially posting that, I submitted to the  Borg, and was assimilated into Win 8.1.  So far I don't see a difference from 8.0 except now it screws up some links.  How much fun is that?

Thanks, Tom, for your comment on my blog post. I like the "sheriff" bit!

I know what you mean about how the responses can make you sad. It's disconcerting to see how many people are so wrapped up around utter bullshit. I also wonder why they're so afraid of anyone questioning what they believe that they have to deny that we even exist. Their "argument" that it "takes more faith" to believe in the big bang or evolution than it does to believe in Jesus, THEREFORE there are no true atheists is just pathetic. It's not all, "Oh these poor victims of bad programming" though. I'm reading a pretty disturbing book titled Religious Right - the Greatest Threat to Democracy by A.F. Alexander. There are tons of unscrupulous people out there raising billions of dollars and stealthily plotting to install old testament law that wouldn't be all that different from sharia law. If we don't collectively watch it, the dark ages could be back with a vengeance.

Hi Tom,

I didn't know "Hi. You perhaps know of the Vallejo Navy League's raising money to make the Iowa a museum. They didn't succeed and the ship went to SoCal.

I'm all for making ship monuments where their history can be told about the vessile and war.

It's a shame that Vallejo didn't aggressively persuade the museum. I don't know what's wrong with Vallejo and it's terrible handling of Mare Island.

Thanks, Tom.  About Nappy, I know I'm a controversial writer with views not everyone agrees with.  I take it all with a grain a salt.  We need a thick skin since we're the minority.

Yeah Tom, I admit to laughing at Foxworthy's spot on humor. I could learn from that way of "attacking" the other side.

You actually lived through the depression years! I've learned many things on how NOT to act from my father, but lessons on money isn't one of them. (if that makes sense)

Tom, I am very glad to see you in this group.

Fishwrap! Good one. I felt obligated to take the newspaper and "be informed". No more. And oh what a relief it is!

Thanks for the friending.  I will make every attempt to keep my posts friendly yet uncompromising.  You've provided good mental exercise.

From one geezer to another, and to all:

Happy Chinese New Year

It's about which pays off for people, making (such as planting or throwing a pot) or taking (such as taking another person's cropsor pots) by force. Once weapons technology became so efficient, with metal blades, those who were physically stronger (men) and willing to dominate by force were reinforced. The flip side of the technology/human culture coevolution is that Dominator culture is now destroying the planet permanently. We're taking and taking from nature, without regard to natural limits. So Partnership Culture is likely to be the only kind of culture which supports long term sustainability on Earth. Taking was a short range optimum but it's not a long range optimum for a species utilizing all of a planet's resources. My impression is that you're focused on blame rather than stepping back to see how humanity has been molded by technology.
