My Two Cents #Cowardice and #Bullying

 

Cowardice is certainly not a topic I write about often, but it seemed appropriate given the times that we live.

Following social media reminded me just how misguided some people are.  Launching vicious attacks on “public figures” under some pseudo name.

Those actions my friends are gutless cowardice. That gesture Does nothing to heal this country.  In fact, it further exemplifies just how fallen we as people are.

We do this with our driving as well, as we are autonomous in our cars.  We think nothing of cutting people off or driving carelessly.  We can hide behind our sunglasses and know that we can escape those that we piss off. We use our horns as weapons to berate those that don’t drive aggressively enough to suit us. We use our vehicle as a weapon slowing everyone else down riding in the left lane because we have taken on the role as “road nazi.”

It is all wrong folks. 

It is not your job to force others to comply with your version of how to drive.

The horn is not a cattle prod!

The horn is to warn of imminent danger IE you have drifted out of your lane “wake the hell up!”

When in line at the bank or movie theater or grocery store we are much more polite.  Why?  Because the person or people that you piss off might take you to task.

That is how you should be while driving or on social media, pretend like those that you are talking with are sitting next to you.  Healthy debates are one thing, four letter name calling is juvenile, cowardice and flat out being a bully!

Don’t you find it interesting that millennials are driving this whole narrative about not bullying but in fact on social media are the worst perpetrators of it?

Maybe there is a disconnect in the terminology.  Maybe they have not figured out what being a bully is?

Possibly they are bullied in “real life” so sitting in their mother’s basement in their underwear calling others names under the pseudo name “Morbius, or Death Eater” is their way of dealing with their real life.

“I can bully this person as long as nobody knows that it is me.”

Is that why geeky people escape into role playing games where they can suddenly “be someone?”

Are the bullies behind the wheel or the keyboard the bullied in “real life.”

Read the stuff on twitter or feedback on some of these forums.  If you espouse an opinion such as on this piece, and someone takes some objection to it, heaven help you.

You cannot control the actions of others.

What you can do is lead by example.

State your case in a manner that would lead others to follow your example.  Ignore those that are helplessly lost in their world of four-letter words, and ethnic diatribes.

  • Ignored behavior goes away.
  • Leading by example teaches.
  • What is it that you wish to teach?

I for one want to leave this world a little better than I found it.  That should be the goal of everyone.

We can do that in our day to day discourse with fellow travelers on this road of life.

To my geeky friends out there, take heart, the meek shale inherit the earth.  In this life, I have found that the geeks also make the money and control those jocks who stole your lunch money! If this is you, stop pushing this agenda down the road.  Those that bully you today will grow up “mature” and those that cower in the basement will either learn to deal or become twisted internally spending lots of money on therapists or doing something stupid as in Sandy Hook or Aurora.

I would add…act…Before you “act…take an action, Think!

 

The bullying must stop at all levels, and we can start with our day to day discourse online.  Everyone alive has some “shit” that they are dealing with.  Cut them some slack!

The Millennials have the right idea.  If they can arrest the bullying and learn that we all have talents either with physical prowess or with intellectual prowess it would be a much better place.  If I were a jock, I would befriend the geeks as assistance with calculus from them would go far.  A symbiotic relationship between the strong and the meek is nature’s way if you study it at all.

Why II or, Gods and Insects II

Why II or, Gods and Insects II

I asked myself, why anyone would put this kind of hatred in a public space and on display for the secular and non-secular world to witness. I am of course talking about new signs popping up touting the killing of Jews as worship.

  1. If you want to conquer a country you must first divide it. It would be much easier to conquer a country divided and fighting itself.
  2. You take control of the media so you can keep control of the narrative.
  3. You divide the folks through propaganda, provided by the media and other outlets like sitcoms and movies that attack conservative values from notable people who we see in movies and sitcoms.
  4. You keep the people distracted through sports venues, 100’s of TV channels and other internet distractions which disseminate a narrative that is in line with an agenda.
  5. Silence dissenting views through arms of the government and you distract with issues which demand your attention through outrageous acts of barbarism.
  6. You pull out a page from a “magician’s handbook” by causing the world to look at the other hand and not the one containing the next “trick.”
  7. You allow or instigate actions which are so heinous that the government is forced by its citizen’s to call out to its government to come in and revise those rights that we hold dear to protect us from the bad people in the world and finally we disarm the citizen’s making them helpless and unable to care for themselves both with armory and even through the control of their ability to fend for themselves if the infrastructure were to break down.
  8. You destroy any candidate from either party that might actually do something to stop this train wreck from happening. Make no mistakes, there are people on both sides that want this country to change and fall in line with the rest of the world.

Let’s see, we have this imaginary war on women, we have racial strife, and we have a division between the law and the people.  Now all cops are painted with the same broad brush that a few power hungry cops have used, overstepping their boundaries.  We have millions of illegals in the country that the tax payer is supporting through taxes that are burdensome and unfair to say the least.

We have a media that is complicit to the left (far left) calling any kind of criticism of the current regime or the far left established empire of the Clinton’s just foolish talk.  We have smoke and fire and a lot of the dots depicting these folks as a dynasty who clearly thinks of themselves as Gods and the rest as insects; being protected by the far left media.

You enlist Hollywood to get familiar faces to speak to its base and against those who see the Wizard of OZ for who he /she really is, just a power hungry money grubbing entity whose agenda is gaining more money and more power, damned the consequences. Even if that means giving control of our Uranium to Russia, though backdoor deals!

The little people, you and I are kept in the dark by this media and when we listen to or hear talk that is of a nature that is diametrically opposite of the far left they we are painted as Tea Baggers and far right loons.

“BTW a Tea Bagger is a very offensive term which means one who puts their “balls” in someone’s mouth during sexual acts, which many find offensive but yet the left really does not care if they are offensive.”

Bill Maher-20111102-4

Most of the people have little time to study current events so many don’t spend their precious TV time watching the news.  The newspaper is mostly liberal so if they read it they get the progressive point of view.  Objectivity does not sell papers or subscriptions and let’s face it, they are left leaning.  To further that, a majority of people only care what is going on in the world if they are directly affected.  If someone comes to their house and demands their guns or else, they might care then, of course by then it would be too late.

Silencing the opposition through coercion, corruption, bribes and or by destroying their credibility by having people of distinction publically attack them in malicious manners, much like Harry Read lying about Romney not paying taxes to dissuade voters from voting for him.  I find it interesting that he had no remorse for his lies and felt that the ends justified the means.

And finally through free speech you allow hate mongers and or other groups to sew seeds of discontent that are so malevolent the people rise up and demand that it be stopped which the government then has a free pass to modify your rights in such a way that you give them up.

That is how we got the patriot act, porn scanners, groping of grandma and children and strip searching of anyone that they like, and the government’s ability to spy on you without a warrant.  Do you feel safer now?

The hateful speech in question would require a change in the 1rst amendment which conversely would affect all law abiding citizen’s ability to speak out against those things which they found offensive.  By pushing the envelope by allowing these Jihad signs in New York; they are hoping to get enough people  to cry out to their government to do something about it. 

Top Down, Bottom up, inside out!

no-free-speech (1)

Do you really want to forfeit more of your rights, to stop those with hateful rhetoric from offending you?

“A word regarding the second amendment.”

We as people are lulled into a false sense of security. We have the NRA lobbying for the legal gun owner of this country to keep and bear arms.  If it came down to a firefight between you and a criminal the odds are good that the criminal would already out gun you as they might have Russian made automatic weapons or even American made automatic weapons as they are not restricted by laws.

If it came down to fighting our government “you know the real reason that there is a second amendment” to stave off a tyrannical government, I know for a fact that drone strikes would not be off the table, much like we are seeing in Syria today where the government uses poison gas on its people.

So, if you are under the illusion that owning a handgun gives you some modicum of protection from anyone other than the common thug, you are dreaming.

If the NRA wants to ramp up the conversation, how about my ability to own an RPG or two?

The bottom line is to vote intelligently and get your news from something other than the liberal left or the loonies out in Hollywood who have some lollipop idea that the world would be great if we all fell in line like the rest of the countries who limit your speech, force PC speech and oh yes, limit your rights to guns or religion and keep you all working for the “common good” thus destroying capitalism.

The only wealthy people are the Gods, and the rest are insects!  The insects work for the Gods; or they are exterminated, which one are you?

You don’t need the government to stop idiots. You just need yourself and a few friends who also think outside the box.
