When I got my stimulus check a few months ago, although it seems like ages ago, I promised that I would send it to Biden to help him remove, with force if necessary, the current Oval Office occupant (#CO3) from the White House, otherwise known as “The People’s House”. No, Trump can’t keep it when he leaves. I want to let you know that I … Continue reading Promises Kept
This is a continuation of my look back on my blog RedLetterLiving before I activate it again. It has pretty much been in hiatus for six years now but I think it is necessary to resurrect it in order to do what I can to counter the current White Evangelical view that is destroying the true messages of Christianity. In my mind they, they have … Continue reading If God Is Love
For this Saturday post I give you my now completed µRV. It is a 1992 truck with a cargo cap on the back that was used in my furniture making business at the beginning of this millennium. I started changing it to my one-person RV about six years ago. For those who don’t know the letter µ is Greek for micro so it is my … Continue reading My µRV
The first thing I noticed about the latest Pew Research data was their view of the current Oval Office Occupant (#CO3). 77% of Gen Z disapprove of him. Millennials were slightly below that number at 69%. Meanwhile, we Baby Boomer approve his time in office at 48%. I, a baby boomer, can’t even fathom why Boomers don’t see what is so clear to later generations. … Continue reading What About Generation Z?
What about the Republicans, especially McConnell who have enabled the idiocy of our times? Continue reading Snippet – What To Do With The Republican Party
I too often take one of my most valuable blogging resources for granted. So I thank them for periodically bringing that fact to my attention. That happened just now as I was preparing a post. A screen came up thanking me for my past contributions and asking if I might make another. I still remember those days in 1970 where I as a recent college … Continue reading About Wikipedia…
One of the primary reasons for RJsCorner is to show you that not everyone is the same. I know we all like to be with people who think as we do but it is equally important to be around people who might think differently and especially those who might see the world through a different lens of experience. For those of us who embrace learning … Continue reading Embrace Diversity
He will do ANYTHING to prevent voters from exercising their most fundemental right. Continue reading Conflict Of Interest (One Among Many)
As mentioned last Sunday, I am putting here some foundational posts from my blog at RedLetterLiving here before I resurrect it in September. From RedLetterLiving Blog – Feb 2014 The church frustrates me. I was once asked by a wealthy church what they could do to help end homelessness. I looked around and saw the thousands of square feet that lie empty every night, the … Continue reading Not Taking Jesus Seriously
It’s been an active week for backyard critters, so I thought I would give you a sampling for this Saturday post. We had a rare daylight siting of our friendly groundhog. He took up residence under our house until we closed off his path. He definitely saw his shadow but I don’t think that means anything now. My wife recently opened up a nighttime restaurant … Continue reading Backyard Critters
I know that America is one of the few first world countries to never have had a king. That is one of the things I am proudest about my country. We don’t give people un earned privilege just because who they come from. Or do we? We might not have dukes and earls and princesses, but we do shamefully have a landed gentry in our … Continue reading American Aristocracy
Do you really want to vote to keep this person as your president? Continue reading Nasty Woman!!
I remember writing my first real essay in high school in the early 1960s. I don’t remember what the topic was, but I was determined to do a good job of it. To do that, I needed more information about my subject than the small rural high school library had. In fact, it didn’t have anything about my subject. To get the info I wanted … Continue reading Some Much Information, So Little Use…
You can think of my battlefield snippets as ammunition stored away in the battlefield trenches. They are primarily pieces of information and opinions that will be fleshed out in my later posts. I imagine these coming months will be very much like the gas-filled trenches of WW I. Lies and falsehoods will be lobbed into the trenches and it will be up to us to … Continue reading Battlefield Snippets
It’s been four weeks now since I have talked about that despicable person who currently occupies the Oval Office. That is about to drastically change. Starting September 1 I am going into the full battle mode. I will say up front, that I am more fearful for our democracy than I have even been in my lifetime. It is precariously perched on a knife’s edge … Continue reading Battlefield Diaries
I’m going to jump in here with some thoughts that are unrelated to the current series. These thoughts were spurred by a quote on the side of my mini-RV that I am prepping for the coming season. I put the sticker along with many others on my trusty vehicle several years ago. I don’t know why it spurred a thought now? All of us think … Continue reading We Pray To The God Of Our Mind…
I have been contemplating just what I want to do with the Sunday’s posts here on RJsCorner. I keep coming back to my religious studies of about a decade ago that are recorded in my blog RedLetterLiving.net. That is where I spent five years trying to figure out where I was in my spiritual life. A lot has changed since then especially in the religious … Continue reading We Pray To The God Of Our Mind
For this “chill out” Saturday post I thought I would give you a gallery of some of my furry friends in my life. I have had pets all my life. They just seem to be better friends to me than the humankind. They accept me for who I am and give unconditional love which is rare for us human beings to do. Continue reading An Ode To My Furry Friends
We Americans are among the most unhealthy people in the world and a big part of that is due to our diet. Poor diet is the leading cause of mortality in the United States, causing more than half a million deaths per year. We will never solve our constant struggle to contain healthcare costs until we address this underlying problem. Yeah, we can tinker around … Continue reading Our Food Is Killing Us…
There are certain people who will drag us into the 21st century whether we are ready for it or not. I liken them to the pioneers of the past. People like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and more recently, Steve Jobs. These new folks will prove to be the giants in their fields who will change everything. This post is about them and one of our … Continue reading Our Entrepreneurial Spirit
Some say America’s independent nature will prove to be our downfall. I can see some logic in that belief. Especially when “independent nature” become obnoxiously self-centered or even narcissist.Will these times be known as a paradigm shift or just a blip on the road to the ideal of American freedom? It used to be, or at least I have read it, that being “American” was … Continue reading Our Independent Nature…
Let’s face it, patience is just not much of a practiced virtue anymore. Proof of that is that so many seem to think that the current lockdown is agonizing. But it is only in its fourth month. Four months is nothing in comparison to most of our lifetimes. It is just a blip on our radar screen. Just look at Anne Frank, who was hidden … Continue reading These Times Are A Blip On The Radar Screen Of Life
Given that much of the church of Jesus Christ has morphed into something entirely different, I feel compelled to bring RedLetterLiving out of its six-year hiatus. So, starting soon I will be posting at least weekly here again. The posts here will appear in parallel over at my home blog at RJsCorner.net but I think it is important that is also stands alone here. It … Continue reading Coming Back to RedletterLiving – Again
I have spent about half my life now in rural America, so I am familiar with silos. But it surprised me when I saw the following words in a recent New York Times post. That’s because A.I. can instantly sort through millions of variables and provide recommendations to doctors, insurers, pharmacies and just about anyone else involved in a patient’s care. And that could be … Continue reading Siloed Data??
A girl I knew came back from Miami so brown I gave here a practical birthday gift — Saddle soap. Take My Wife, Please – Henney Youngman’s Giant Book of Jokes I have never been one to lie around the beach so that the sun could burn my skin brown. I lived about 15 minutes from the beach during my four years in New Jersery … Continue reading Take My Wife – A Miami Tan
My brain seems to always be running a 100mph. I have been looking for yet another graphical representation of it in action and I think I have found it. Of course, I have said that a hundred times in the past, so I will obviously keep looking. Here is the latest version. My brain is like a hundred mosaics that somehow manage to coexist. Or … Continue reading Describing My Brain… Chapter 23
I want to start out this post reminding you that not all hotspots are bad. I know during these pandemic times we all likely cringe when we hear that word. It means that during these times of a totally incompetent White House occupant and a czar in charge of the U.S. Senate, that we are paying the price of more deaths. I pray that none … Continue reading The New Hotspot…
The longer I live the more convinced I have become that the American style capitalist economy is unsustainable for much longer. Eventually, our version of capitalism must merge with socialist type system in order to survive. I know that is a “crazy” statement to make for most of us Americans, but hear me out. Our consumer driven economy demands that we buy more and more … Continue reading The Markets Are Not A Real Barometer Of Prosperity
This is a sister post to yesterday’s. It is for the people who view my daily post from the WordPress Reader, or those who have never looked at my About pages, to get a fuller understanding of where I am coming from. RJsCorner has two fundamental cornerstones It is also about the lessons that I have learned throughout my life that I might humbly pass … Continue reading About My Cornerstones
I have come to realize that a significant portion of my viewers come through the WordPress Reader and therefore have never seen my About pages. Knowing where I have come from is pretty important to understanding my daily posts. So, I am with this post sharing my About bio. About Me I am an Independent thinking highly functional person who is deaf and has some … Continue reading About Me…
I heard the title above recently, although I don’t remember where, but it stuck with me. I will admit that I seldom even look at that site since you know who starting using it to spread his hateful lies. I’m sure that is one of the reasons I boycott it, but it is not the only one. Conspiracy theories thrive there as well as some … Continue reading Twitter Is Like Writing On A Public Toilet Wall
Have you heard of the new insecticide that, while it doesn’t actually kill flies, make them so sexy that you can swat them two at a time? Take My Wife, Please – Henney Youngman’s Giant Book of Jokes Now that’s what I call pragmatic, and I am nothing if not pragmatic. If it works then the elegance of it doesn’t really matter.🤣 Continue reading Two At A Time…?
I am having a pretty moody day today so I thought I would give you a picture that reflects that. It is entitled Shaker Doors and was taken at the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village near Lexington KY. It is one of my favorite places to visit when I am moody. Continue reading Moody Day…
