This is very weird, coming from you. You know what I wonder? Whether I should tell others about the stuff you do, or just not bring you suffering.
Need more input. What do you mean??? There’s no such thing as bad press, so share away. That’s what it’s all about. If it’s not worth sharing, it’s probably not worth your time. 😉
Carlin is saying he does not vote. What does that mean? He is an outsider. He is way on the outside of things. I am closer to him in age, if not exactly his same generation, Are you trying to be popular? If you are trying to be noticed, that is whole different strategy from being a freaky outsider like Carlin. There’s a difference.
I know what Carlin is saying. You don’t have to explain for him. You’re the one that leaves me wondering what you’re getting at sometimes. My goals are not of a personal nature. I don’t want to be ostracized or idolized. I just want to share information; get people thinking, critically, for themselves.
Yeah but what then are you exactly suggesting by putting up this George Carlin thing? I just thought it was weird coming from you. I tend to think that you will eventually need to think of the implications of the things you post… more fully. That is what I tend to think of.
Ask a clear, specific question, and I will give back an answer on the same level. 😉
I adore George Carlin. And honestly, I can’t stand people telling other people what their rights are. Everyone has the right to vote or not to vote, to worship or not to worship, and to eat or not to eat, at least in this country. And everyone has the right to complain. You also have the right to disagree with how others live or how others exercise their rights (or the right not to exercise those rights), but just because you may disagree, you do not get to take away a person’s right (to complain or anything else). Nobody is superior or inferior because they choose to exercise or not exercise a right.
Teeni has spoken! So it was said, so it shall be done! 😉 I am of the opinion that people should worry less about their “rights” to do this and that, and less about what “you” should or shouldn’t be doing, and concentrate more on respect. Actual respect, not “fear”, which some people seem to think is respect. It’s not—not even close. However, even respect has its limits. I don’t think I should respect someone’s belief that they can fly like a bird by jumping off of a tall building. 😛
Yes!!! could not agree more. Fear and respect are often confused. I respect someone disagreeing with me. I don’t respect that they think I deserve or don’t deserve something just because we don’t agree on something. And I fear that many people are afraid of being different or questioning things or questioning why we do the things we do. Tradition is not necessarily a good reason to continue on the same path or to accept what we are handed from infancy. These are my opinions but I am glad I can have them and that I can make my own decisions to a certain extent in this country. Thx for listening, Peter! 🙂
You are always very welcome, Teeni, and thank you for commenting. Two thumbs up on your opinion of tradition. I wish someone would have shared such thoughts and ideas with me a long long time ago. 🙂
