Why are so many women low esteem masochists?

Be forewarned that I am putting on my satirical hat for this post so don’t take it too serious even if it does ring of truth. The title of this post may shock some of my readers but that is what my Aspie side sometimes thinks when I sees some women. It just looks to me that too many 21st century women will go through … Continue reading Why are so many women low esteem masochists?

The Forces That Bind Us Together..

One thing about America is that we have always had some hidden forces that bind us as citizens together. Something that we all agree on that makes us what we are as a country.  Are those forces being torn apart during these time? That is the question for this post. Total bipartisanship is a myth especially in our country.  From the very beginning we have … Continue reading The Forces That Bind Us Together..

Science Is Not The Enemy Of The Church..

Being an engineer I consider myself a scientist and I can tell you first-hand that I felt very much attacked whenever I brought up science in my weekly bible classes. In that church the word “scientist” and “liberal” seemed to have an equally negative bias and I was both! I could never understand why so many were threatened when I asked questions based on scientific … Continue reading Science Is Not The Enemy Of The Church..

Perpetual Motion..

  I thought for this mid-week post I would again visit the Museum of the Appalachia. This time I want to concentrate on Asa Jackson and his perpetual motion machine.  It looks like Asa spent many hours working on his machine, twiddling this and that until he got it just right.  He was convinced that he accomplished what Leonardo Da Vinci couldn’t do even if … Continue reading Perpetual Motion..

The Soul of America?

Red America sure is a strange place to me. They wave the flag with such vigor and then go about trying to prevent those who might vote differently than them from having their say. In the 60s it was primarily African Americans who had their attention, now they have expanded way beyond that group. Red America makes no sense to me. Every gun tragedy that … Continue reading The Soul of America?

Privatize Snail Mail…

Our current president seems determined to completely erase any evidence of his predecessor. There are a myriad of opinions why he fixates on this task. But that is not the subject of this post.  If he really wants to do something productive that won’t harm his personal businesses, which is a top priority for him, he needs to privatize Snail Mail. For anyone who has … Continue reading Privatize Snail Mail…

Writers Should Make People Uncomfortable..

One of the axioms of  writing is that it should make people uncomfortable. If it doesn’t then you are not stretching the horizons of those reading your words.  Even before I heard this it was in my heart. One of the foundations of RJsCorner is that I try to get people to think outside their boxes to other possibilities.  I am constantly looking for ways … Continue reading Writers Should Make People Uncomfortable..

Religiously Powerful…

Jesus had some very stinging words about the religiously powerful of his day. The Gospel of Mark 7 is one of those places.  Let’s study some of those words. He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written:” ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are … Continue reading Religiously Powerful…

Having No Religion or Faith..

Britain is becoming an increasingly faithless society, according to a new survey that has found 53% of Britons now describe themselves as having no religion. The proportion is the highest ever, up from 48% in 2015 and 31% in 1983 when the British Social Attitudes survey was begun by the independent National Centre for Social Research. The trend is evident across all age groups but … Continue reading Having No Religion or Faith..

Aspie Traits – Assets vs Liabilities..

  It has been a while since I talked about my Aspie traits. I have decided I won’t call myself an Aspie but will state that I have many of the characteristics of one.  Asperger’s Syndrome is part of the Autism Spectrum and the breadth of the syndrome is wide indeed.  Some, like myself live a pretty normal life while others struggle with day to … Continue reading Aspie Traits – Assets vs Liabilities..

I Don’t Have Many Friends — By Choice..

Maybe I should explain the title some more before I continue with the post.  Yes, because of my Aspie traits and my isolation as a deaf senior citizen I don’t have as many friends as I had when I was in the corporate world. That is a fact that can’t be denied but it is not the point of this post. The point I am … Continue reading I Don’t Have Many Friends — By Choice..

My View Of The Bible – Part 6 Closing Thoughts…

This six part Sunday series was about looking at the Bible as a human document. That is, it was written and assembled by humans with different life experiences, viewpoints, and passions.  Much of their thoughts and words were believed to come from divine inspiration. Many believed they were writing what God wanted them to write. When I study the Bible I try to understand the reasons why some of … Continue reading My View Of The Bible – Part 6 Closing Thoughts…

Tongue In Cheek..

I am going to do a little ‘explainin’ on this post about the foundations for RJsCorner. Everyone knows that a good house has to have a good foundation in order to survive. Since RJsCorner has been going on for almost nine years now and has over 3,000 posts it must have a pretty good foundation, even if it is not mentioned very often. I started … Continue reading Tongue In Cheek..

Red America & Blue America (after the divorce)..

If you haven’t already read the first two posts in this series I would highly recommend you do that now because this one won’t make much sense if you don’t. Red & Blue America – Part 1  Red & Blue America – Part 2 Last time I promised you a settled map of what Red America and Blue America might look like under the “My View of … Continue reading Red America & Blue America (after the divorce)..

My View Of The Bible — Part 5 Summing It Up..

This is the fifth post on this series about the Bible. If it is not obvious by now I want you to understand that I put my Christianity on Jesus Christ not on a book about him. I will try to keep this brief as it is really a wrap-up of the past posts. About the Literalists: Panic – In some cases I see almost total panic in … Continue reading My View Of The Bible — Part 5 Summing It Up..

It’s Time For A Divorce Between Red America & Blue America..

  This is a continuation of yesterday’s post about a divorce between Red America and Blue America. This time I will start putting forward my rather warped view of how that might happen.  If you missed yesterday’s post that started this discussion I would recommend that you click the “Home” button at the top of this page and see the post from yesterday directly below … Continue reading It’s Time For A Divorce Between Red America & Blue America..

I Think It’s Time For A Divorce..

  I imagine the title at got a few of you to click it.  No, although I have sometimes thought about it, it is not about me divorcing my wife of 32 years. I kinda think it is time to start thinking about a divorce between Red and Blue America for irreconcilable differences. I am just not sure if we’ll ever listen to each other … Continue reading I Think It’s Time For A Divorce..

In Case You Wondered…

Being a regular viewer of the cable TV show American Pickers I am very aware that people collect just about everything in the world. Being as how the USA is driven by consumer spending it’s not surprising that we have some of the biggest collections in the world. In case you were wondering there is even a museum in Madison Wisconsin dedicated to a mustard … Continue reading In Case You Wondered…

“Don’t Confuse Me With The Facts”…

I am becoming more and more convinced that the title of this post should be the theme of the Trump base.  Their hero continues to lie, attack and poison everything he touches and they just ignore it.  Don’t confuse me with the facts… yeah that fits. Fake news is often the topic with the liar in chief so I’m sure he has seen the article … Continue reading “Don’t Confuse Me With The Facts”…

My View Of The Bible — Part 4 .. Misguided Beliefs?

This, the fourth post on the Bible centers around where I see some others may have gone astray in regards to their beliefs surrounding  the Bible. Some have replaced the Holy Spirit with the book called the Bible… They put so much power in the Bible and so little in the Holy Spirit. Compared to the others in Trinity studies there is very little in-depth … Continue reading My View Of The Bible — Part 4 .. Misguided Beliefs?
