The Ghoul said:I know exactly what to say.
He is a fucking moron for thinking that people are actually dumb enough to buy it. Yes, we do have our idiots in this country. So does the UK. So does Russia. So does the Congo. Big fucking deal.
He thinks that because he shows a few minutes of people that are more concerned with making enough money to pay their bills than watching current events, or people who ditched 3rd grade geometry, that we ALL are idiots.
The fact that he can take a handfull of people (not even a handfull, but a select few that he uses the media to make it seem like that is our whole country) and ASS-U-ME that people are stupid enough to buy it shows several characteristics about him, including but not limited to: stupidity; apathetic behavior; lack of patriotism (details below); blind faith.
Now, when I say he lacks patriotism, I mean it. If someone is truely proud, beyond a shadow of a doubt, then they want to let others know. Now, why is another discussion, but we'll do that later. So, he lacks patriotism. Why? He tries to make a country look more worse off than hist so that he can be high and mighty. That means that he can't really feel good about where he comes from if he places both countries on the same pedistal.
If he sees this, I hope for him to pay me a visit. My address is 5641 Cathy Lane, Cypress, CA, 90630. I'm usually home between the hours of 3:00 AM and 9:00 AM.
I'll be waiting.
in HS, i sat at a computer in the library. i dont think once did i ever intentially speak with a librarian, or refer to a book on the shelves unless required for the lesion.Janq said:NN,
I grew up with libraries and a circa '71 set of Funk & Wagnalls encylopaedia (sic) that my grandmother had bought for me after I was born. I read every book of that set (IIRC it was 18 books total) cover to cover multiple times up to and through college, along with my parents college books and any other book and newspaper I could get my hands on. We had a globe too that I'd asked for my 7th birthday that I referenced many times and is the reason why I know the continent of Australia is not the country of 'Korea'.
it depends how you look at it. somoene of my generation might view reading books for information as limiting. your restricting yourself to a vastly limited number of sources. even assuming you could procure every book on a particular subject, it would still be less information then what the net could provide.For the longest I never understood why folk at OT would say/suppose I looked crap up on and/or am powered by Google.
Then I came to discover that now days that is what people and kids my age and younger largely do and source for their 'knowledge', which to me was a completely foreign concept/idea. As foreign tome as it seems to them for one to spend hours in a library or their room reading actual books or learning & remembering/memorizing stuff for real.
I wonder how this paradigm change will affect people through the coming generations.
your father in law is seeing it plain as day, im afraid. our overwatchers are playing there hand well and achieving exactly what they want. a subservient uneducated mass that makes them money.BTW I sent this link to some friends, my wife, and my father inlaw.
