That didn't stop me from getting a diagnosis. I told the Dr. up front about my anxiety and if anything it only further added to my getting the diagnosis.

IMHO the difficulties of autistics are caused by a combination of misunderstandings/discrimination causing or Autistic strengths not to be realized and autism caused weaknesses. If it is a pure disability or pure difference it would be a lot more manageable and the community would not be nearly as ...

Not necessarily. I think it depends on which part of the spectrum a person falls. It also depends on how the person defines disability. For me it's not a disability, but I can't speak for others.

Currently, I'm reading Christopher Hitchen's Why Orwell Matters

I read "Arguably" which is just a collection of Hitchen's essays. I swear he mentions George Orwell in nearly every single essay, and the book is over 700 pages long. It's was actually kind of funny.

It is only logically possible to be one or the other. Those two attributes are mutually exclusive. If you know what will happen in the future you won't be able to change it, or else you didn't really know. I wouldn't want to be either regardless. One of the great joys in my life is learning and I co...

Stupid strategy based on revenge by the Dems. They should have "magnanimously" confirmed Gorsuch based on his qualifications. That would just get us back to where we were before Scalia died. If as likely one of the liberal justices croakes that is when the balance of power on the court re...

It's not a hive mentality, it's peoples that are smart enough to see what should be obvious. To be perfectly honest, that's exactly the type of thing I'd expect to hear from Scientologists or whoever. Have you watched the video I linked, because it show well how I have seen the Trump election even ...

Ezra,
That just seems to be your go to response to an argument.

And people protesting always chant. Whether it's let wing or right. It takes more than that to be cult like.

I was just listening to the radio on the way to my knitting meeting and I must say that Syria is not our fight. If Trump decides to send troops over there, that is one reason I would not vote for him again. I voted for Trump because he said he would not send our troops to fight. America First! http...

Trump spoke about Syria today at the press conference with King Abdullah and said that he has been affected by the attack. Thank God.


It affected him? Apparently not enough to prevent him from trying to score political points from it.
