I'm just worried about the kids futures. These unions are pure evil teaching our kids lies. Here's the American Federation of Teachers, one of the biggest unions. This is what Weingartner's proposing for these 1 1/2 million union teachers.

Now what to do?

Interesting that she was also the singer on Kookie Lend Me Your Comb, which going from memory sounds right. Also the voice of Pepsi Generation ads. She had a long career singing with "jazz greats" (not sure who but I'll look it up on discogs later) but was pigeon holed by that one hit.

Trump called out Fauci.

Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000. If we tested less, there would be less cases. How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG!

OL--

What if I told you that this statement--

America is a land of innovators and hard workers. Today, our lives and livelihoods are being destabilized and, tragically, destroyed on a massive scale. As we rush to recover, there is a danger of stopping short, of missing the big picture, and fooling ourselves that getting back to normal is good enough. This is a legacy moment, when the full force of our values and all of our assets are needed to escape the trouble we are in. We created this Springboard to leverage the immense resilience in America’s communities. It describes how we see the current situation and what we could do, together, to organize local and nationwide action around a single, unifying—and measurable—expectation: All people and places thriving—no exceptions.

comes from a document launched last month that turns out to be backed by the CDC Foundation. Does everything going on make far more sense?

Good afternoon! We had a "dirt road" garage sale today with our neighbors down the road. Wow, it is amazing the sh*....oops,I mean nice stuff people will buy. Some really great people stopped by. A family from Mass. who have a place on a nearby lake were curious how someone with an Italian name lived in northern Maine. Hubby has his Dad's old office sign hanging in the garage and they noticed the name. Hubby explained the story of his grandfather. Scout was a big hit with everyone, he was very well behaved. We had a laugh when a young woman with a baby came into the garage and the baby started crawling on the garage floor. Hubby said,"he'll be walking soon." She said, he walks,but he decided to crawl on every garage floor we've been to today."
One woman said that people just want to get out and do something and the perfect weather today brought them out.

Teaching marginalized kids taught me orderly classrooms, Western canon keys to liberation

by Sohrab Ahmari

"...I was 20 years old, self-righteous and half-erudite (which is worse than being illiterate). Having read my Michel Foucault and my Judith Butler, I regarded moral order, beauty, human nature, even truth itself as the impositions of power — specifically white, male, “heteronormative,” colonialist power.

Do you know what would have happened if I’d told my Mexican-American students’ moms, “You know, ladies, I’m not teaching your children grammar, because grammar is an integral part of the white, phallocentric structures of ­oppression that keep you and your community down”?

They would’ve slapped me with their purses and called me a pendejo — and rightly so."

DeSantis just gave us his Hurricane presser.

Nothing in it tells me our world will end. I agree. Mostly a palm tree shaker and soaker.

Old Lurker

Hrts, to me the great unknown is how big the wave of "too scared to say what they think" is.

Even if Biden heads his ticket NOBODY thinks he will be POTUS inside a year so whomever is VP is really the person running against Trump.

hrtshpdbox

OL, Trump should use that logic and insist on debating whoever Joe picks, instead of Joe. Trump can say he refuses to fight an unarmed man.

The two girls who live in the Section 8 apsrtments 2 blocks away came to do yard work, as agreed upon, and I had forgotten to get money!! Yikes!

So, while they pulled weeds and swept the porch and driveway I ran to get money at the bank. Only, the dang bank machine wasn't working. So I had to run to Kroger and buy something in order to get change.

The cashier misunderstood me and thought I wanted coins (not allowed) and I almost had a panic attack, but when she realized I wanted bills, I got my 2 $5 bills and came home. The girls did a very good job and will come back next Saturday.

WHAT IS SCIENTOLOGY?

Developed by L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being.

Scientology addresses the spirit—not the body or mind—and believes that Man is far more than a product of his environment, or his genes.

Scientology comprises a body of knowledge which extends from certain fundamental truths. Prime among these are:

Man is an immortal spiritual being.

His experience extends well beyond a single lifetime.

His capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized.

Scientology further holds Man to be basically good, and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself, his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe.

Scientology is not a dogmatic religion in which one is asked to accept anything on faith alone. On the contrary, one discovers for oneself that the principles of Scientology are true by applying its principles and observing or experiencing the results.

The ultimate goal of Scientology is true spiritual enlightenment and freedom for all.

I read his book, Dianetics, as an impressionable young adult. The first half was quite interesting and made a lot of sense, and recent reading I've been doing on the brain make me think back to Hubbard's engram idea. The 2nd half of the book veered into pseudo-religious explanations for things brought up more disinterestedly in the first half, and I didn't actually finish the book. I guess Tom Cruise did.

You may be right, Captain, but I tossed the book long ago so I can't test it right now. The engram, though...

Engram, in Scientology, a mental image of a past experience that produces a negative emotional effect in an individual’s life.

The idea is that the inputs from all five senses are stored together in memory as a sort of connected bundle after a traumatic event. Say you're eating a hotdog as a little kid while looking out the window and you see your friend get run over by a truck. Later in life, the smell of Gulden's brown mustard is a downer, but you never realize the connection, just the downer.

L. Ron Hubbard (1911–86), the founder of Scientology, believed that the basic principle of human existence is survival. He argued that actions that support survival are good and yield pleasure, while actions that are destructive, which he called “countersurvival actions,” perpetuate negative states. Each individual, he believed, possesses a mind that under normal conditions operates analytically to make survival-oriented judgments. However, when the mind is not fully functioning, a part of it that Hubbard called the reactive mind takes over, storing images of experiences, or engrams, which contain not only strong negative emotional content but also unrelated elements of the experience. A later encounter with these unrelated elements may bring forth negative emotional reactions from the stored engram and lead to countersurvival actions.

To help people bring engrams to their consciousness, to confront them, and thereby to eliminate them, Hubbard developed what he called “auditing,” a one-on-one counseling process in which a counselor, or auditor, facilitates individuals’ handling of their engrams. A key aspect of this process is the use of an instrument called an E-meter. According to Scientology teachings, the E-meter measures the strength of a small electrical current that passes through the body of the person undergoing auditing; the strength of the current indicates changes in emotional states that allow stored engrams to be identified. The goal of auditing was to become “Clear” by ridding the mind of engrams completely.

Their egocentric world view can be the only one according to the new thinking. China is becoming a respectable nation according to Dianne Feinstein. Nike is hosting slaves in their camps but black lives matter.

Blackwater is hauling innocent Antifas (who don't exist) off the streets of Portland. But holding a thousand person funeral for John Lewis and banning church services is just Jake by them.

Obviously the ending of that with the e-meter and eliminating the engrams is the cult stuff, similar to the pseudo-religious second half of Dianetics I mentioned, but I still think the first half was interesting and would probably read it again, especially now that I have a better understanding of the brain.
