    My niece is still trying to immigrate to the USA so she is extremely interested in our culture but the more she learns the more she is concerned and asks things like "Why is every television episode and every movie there is always an example of homosexuality? Is that what it is like there?"

    Anyway, she sent this to me as it is flying around Russia and other Eastern European and Asia parts of the world. It's basically is a parody on Political Correctness and pretty much shows how ridiculous things have become in America. It's quite funny but also...strangely disturbing. Oh well! Enjoy!

    Yep. America is not the same country that all the world looked up to years ago. What it has become,, I’m not really sure.

    This country suffers from a mental disorder, it's a whole series of lies based on the notion of "Not Offending Someone" and being all inclusive, even if it means being forced to accept things that have always been taboo! Interracial relationships, gay relations, race baiting, gender fluid, drug use, prostitution, and over the top gun violence portrayals in media and hyper inflated hyper awareness of stupid things we don't need!
    I am constantly bombarded by the whole Gay is Ok message, and that really pisses me off, I find it sick and disgusting and do not wish to see it, hear of it, or be forced to accept it. PERIOD! I'm also sick and tired of this whole Black Race thing, that I owe the black's for something some one else did over 200 years ago! Or the whole "My Feelings Matter more then your rights" thing, or "My Rights are more equal then yours" or, My Freedom of speech is the only one that counts, and because I disagree with you, you don't get to speak! Or, my all time favorite, Common Sense Gun Control, or Compromise, as if ether is actually an open discussion where negotiations take place, NO, instead they TAKE and never give anything in return, and then tell us it the right thing to do, and that they are doing what is best for me! Fuck You, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED, I decide what is best for me, and i'm sick and tired of all this bullshit being shoved down my throat and then told to swallow it or else! Red Flag my ass, Come and take them, bring a lunch and lots and lots of yellow tarps, shit gonna pile up quick!

    I actually had a boss do something similar. He couldn't understand that if you increased something by 50% then decreased it by 50% you didn't get the original number, so I wrote this on the white board:
    100 + 50% of 100 = 100 + 50 = 150
    150 - 50% of 150 = 150 - 75 = 75

    He told me (seriously not joking) that I was wrong and because he was the boss he was right. He's no longer my boss since Me - Zero = Me working for someone else.

    [winkthumb] [winkthumb] I couldn’t have said it better. I’ll say basically the same thing when people ask me about this or that,, and I’ll start getting pretty emotional about it, just as you do ,, and they start trying to calm me down,, and change the subject. But it still takes me a while to calm down. I usually end up breaking out a few beers and shots of likker and head home to the back yard and the fire barrel.

    I'm hanging out for the 'alternative science' short film where the dumb@ss parents complain to the school board that their child's science teacher failed their child for writing in the science exam paper that Earth is only 6,000 to 10,000 years old.

    I do believe that something similar happened in Dayton, Tennessee in 1925. It was hilarious.

    Then there is the 'alternative geography' short film featuring flat Earther parents, and so forth.

    Don't do that! Just bury a shotgun, rifle, handgun, and what some folks incorrectly call an assault weapon out in the woods. Don't forget the ammo or how to find your cache. Then you will be both pissed-off and well armed. Be like those two ole boys in the song "Wildwood Weed"... just smile and wave, sitting there on that sack of seed.:sneaky:

    Self deception is often the most difficult kind of deception to overcome...it requires a certain amount of skepticism, and the weighing up of factual evidence to arrive at justified true beliefs. Accepting truth claims uncritically on mere faith, is not a very effective way of navigating reality...hence people believing 2+2=22, and that the earth is flat etc because it has an intuitively truthiness to it.

    As to your dilemma with reality apparently not being as you have believed it be for your whole life? Sounds like you may benefit from reading Alice Through the Looking Glass which is full of the kind of paradoxes you seem to be presently experiencing. ;)

    Paradox or not, I believe there are really 9 planets. All the mouth music, alternative science, and new math in the world will not dissuade me from that belief.

    Interesting view of education and also a possible reason so many of our engineering and programing jobs are filled either with people educated in other countries or by minorities who still value education in the old sense. While the film was an extreme, the actions of the child and the reactions of the adults are no different than I have observed in local shops trying to get some productive work out of late teen, early 20's employees. Telling them that certain procedures must be followed with meat slicers, french fryers, lathes, welders, etc, seems to be limiting their freedoms, but it seems that they have a local rob em and rape em law firm on their speed dial phone that is attached to their ear if they do get hurt for not following instructions..

    Yes, I hear you, as I also hear geocentrists who are similarly unpersuaded by all the mouth music, alternative science, and new math, that the Earth is not the centre of the universe: They too are unconvinced, even though the scientific consensus has moved on.;)

    And here lies a great example of not taking responsibility for your own actions . You have been told , and taught not to put your fingers in the meat slicer , but you do it anyway ,, and then blame your employer for your own stupidity . And then get paid for it . Why work ??

    All I can say Is WOW! What the hell has happened in this country? When did "special People" get all the rights and every one else had better fall in line or else? @Bandit99 this is exasperating to say the least! My own bride is always asking me what to do, She knows the right way ( the way it should always be) but isn't sure how to respond when these new things pop up!
    We were at a store a few days ago, and she noticed the restroom markings were changed to be genderless and she commented that she would not be using ether one, as she feels it improper and a breach of personal privacy! I told her I would go in with her and stand guard and keep every one else out until she was finished! Should have seen the people who came in while I was standing guard, they were not happy when I told them to wait outside until we were done! One place had a store manager ask us to leave, to which I told her I cared for my bride and would not allow some freak access to the restroom while my bride was using it! I also asked here if she was comfortable sharing with trans people! We were asked not to return anyway, and thee is no reason for us to do so now more then ever!

    I have no answer for you on this . I have no answer , because I can not even make sense of it to myself . Common sense has been replaced by stupidity . If you want to be called something other than what you are , then prove you are what you want to be called . You pay for your own chromosome test . I'm sorry Bandit . Are you sure she should come here ? Sometimes I wonder why other people would really want to come here , unless they're just looking for the free ride the democraps are trying to hand out . Looking for that American Dream has been replaced by that American Handout .

    In time those that choose stupid may wake up or prove them selves even more stupid much like the hippies did in the 60s.a lot died off due to drugs and stupid things they did on drugs.
    Death has a way of dealing with stupid, it just takes time.
    There are people that find ways to exploit the willingly stupid and they make millions on them and walk away. that's just the way it is.
