Political Bullshit and FB...
« on: November 07, 2013, 04:39:19 PM »
I can't help but cringe when I look at what people (my family) say and post on FB (go figure right!) when it comes to politics and pictures of "jesus and the flag" and how all the bad things that are happening (terrorism, school shootings, <insert bad stuff here>) are because god is sad that we are taking him out of our schools and Obama is the "anti-christ" etc...

Anyways, I just posted this for fun but I don't think any of them will get it...  :-\



It's always good to see people working together, our natural instinct that our survival would be improved if we all just found common ground and work to together for the greater good to build a solid foundation for the future.
 
Oh wait... No I'm sorry those are just ants...  :-\

And here's a newly released science article about ants for the inspiration.

How simple minded people are to think that if there was only prayer in schools all would be ok.  And what has Obama done that is so bad?  Start 2 unfunded wars?  Destroy the middle class with tax breaks for the rich?  He is black but only half...kind of hard for him to correct that.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Back when there was school-led prayer, everything was just perfect. Everyone knew their place. For some people, that place was the end of a rope hanging from a tree. And everyone involved considered themselves to be Christian, and prayed to god for guidance. Send this to your FB folks and watch the denials begin....

As seen on Facebook ...




When all else fails, roast Kathy Griffin. I read her autobiography and it has both hilarious and disturbing stuff in it. After reading the book, you would know that if Kathy were to ever Find JesusTM she definitely would have found him by now.

When I saw the 2nd law of Thermodynamics mentioned in the same breath as Darwin, I knew it was a winner. Geology mixed with genetics and biology and physics and botany and animal husbandry, oh my! This reminded me of those "garbage omelettes" where the hairy-armed diner cook squinting through his cigarette throws a bit of everything they have in the fridge into the frying pan. Heaveola!  :P

It was a disaster of quote-mining, real science, pseudo-science and wtf? I could not even follow the argument for all the random stuff in there. I think the takeaway here--and remember, I only skimmed the thing because I don't want to ruin my palate for Prof. Gould's Wonderful Life book--is that you can slam science and make fun of it, but still benefit from it everyday. And praise your religion.

But they don't hate all blacks... they quote the great Bill Cosby

Quote
Bill Cosby "I'm 83 and Tired"

"I'm 83 and Tired" Worth reading.....

"I'm 83 and I'm Tired"

I'm 83. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National
Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some some serious
health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly
40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my
income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as
though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who
don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take
the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy
to earn it.

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I
can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and
daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight
offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't
"believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning
teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the
genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and
Shari'a law tells them to.

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let
Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques
and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand ,
UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to
fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other
Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global
warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help
support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ
rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses
or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all
parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful
mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting
caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and
actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination
or big-whatever for their problems.

I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and
early 20's be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making
themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I'm not
going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for
my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not
on the way in.

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us
sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference.

" I'm 83 and I'm tired. If you don't agree you are part of the problem!

Except Bill Cosby is not 83, was not in the military, and did not say that!

Even when I was a Christian it pissed me off to get threats on Facebook that I if I didn't share a particular post I didn't love God or Jesus.  I would never share it and always leave a snarky comment that my faith was not dependent on which Facebook posts I shared.

Did you even read what is stated by snopes. Apparently not. It says Bill Cosby didn't write it, and also states who did; some state Senator in Mass.

Did you not read MY quote? I was verifying what she said, NOT denouncing it.

EDIT: Gender fail

EDIT2:
It's also kinda hard to miss the red bullet and big text saying "INCORRECTLY ATTRIBUTED"

I read your quote and I also took that to mean you were saying Bill Cosby really said all that and Lori was mistaken.  To be fair, your comment was not very specific and could be unintentionally misleading.  Clicking the link just added to my confusion.

It is not a big deal though, so let's all settle down.

Honestly, I took Antidote's statement the way he said he meant it the first time.

Just an example of how easy it is to misunderstand on the Internet, I guess.

I had assumed that since the text "INCORRECTLY ATTRIBUTED" was one of the first things you saw when clicking on the link that no further clarification was needed, that was my mistake.

I mainly smited you for your aggressive tone toward me more than anything else. My initial comment wasn't aggressive, slightly rude, but not aggressive.

Your problem is it can be read both ways. Yes, you quoted Jag but you link to snopes saying, "It's absolutely true!" -- which said to me, "Jag's wrong, I'm right! and here's my evidence!" So, I clicked the link to see if Jag was wrong, and you were right and thus replied in the fashion I did. Anyone else responded that way, I would have responded the same.

This is over, on my end.

1: It wasn't Jag I quoted.
2: "learn to be coherent, fucker." You smited me for my aggressive behavior? I'm not one to believe that based on the smite message.
