But I speak from the heart in this blog about poltics and violent games in our society.
Ease up on the anger and hatred there, pal. You'll die young.
"You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive." - Van Wilder
Too much anger, yes, but also there is much truth in what he speaks. I share most of the same views as you, with the exception of a few things. I would like to add though that not all lawyers and politicians are selfish, cruel and egotistical. Though most are, there are a select few around that lack those negative and ultimately self-destructive qualities. I think that more folks would be more apt to listen to an individual who is cool, calm and collective about the matter, not to mention highly educated with facts about on the matter at hand.
Good points about the parenting. I don't agree with the whole violence thing. I think people learn how to deal with things through experience and that is whre we pcik up our violence. My daughter is a good example. She is a great girl, never went to hit any child until she SAW another kid hit someone to get what he wanted. She always shared with her sister until she hit Pre-school where she picked up the "it's mine" philosophy.
I can understand your hate for Politicians and lawyers, but Doctors? 'splain Lucy....'splain. Doctors typically charge more because of the malpractice insurance they have to carry because of the lawyers and politicians that make it easy for people to bring suit against them. But, then again, they are dealing with people's live and should be held accountable when they mess up.
Good article. I whole heartidly agree with you.
Violence is in on TV, in movies, in the News in real world wars being fought right now.
The best thing parents can do is educate their children. And yes they can make rules for what their kids are allowed to play and view at home.
What gets me are parents that are never there or are never involved with their kids and allow their children to be raised on TV, movies, video games alone. And then turn around and try to blame these mediums for their kids rebellious behavior. Its a cop-out for bad parenting.
People will not listen? Of course, were they even listening before?
There you go, let it all out do you feel better now You would do well to read many George Orwell books 1984 being one of my fav and Animal Farm is very good insight into politics.
Those books were written mid 1940s but thats exactly how it is. DoubleSpeak is whats used in politics. You have Bush a "Christian" that prays to the price of peace andis pro life but is pro war and pro death penalty. Welcome to the real world, you have no freedom now, Only freedom comes in death
Have a nice day guys
Yes i am a Genius, a self proclaimed Genius but genius non-the less
AMEN Video XPG... AMEN
I share the exact same views as you with same level of disdain and frustration over the ignorance of Americans. The ones who get so upset or tell you that this view is wrong or too harsh are usually the sheep that won't take responsibility for themselves.
I love my parents. That being said, whenever I did something wrong or talked back my dad would spank me with a leather belt. When I was a kid I didn't like it but now I appreciate the discipline. I am a 3rd year college student with three scholarships, no diseases or bastard children. I love life and am very nice to everyone, even when others are not. I feel that my parents helped shaped me into a productive and caring person with a strong soul and concience. Violence was used as an example in my life to teach and give direction.
What America needs is a balance. Don't eliminate violence, but don't over-glorify it. Use it to teach, and when appropriate, entertain.
My parents didn't exactly hit me with anything, but they did practice authoirity over me nonetheless. If they grounded me for a week, it would be the whole 7 days, not letting me go the next day.
BTW, I did read Orwell's 'Animal Farm.' Fine read it was.
