Irish people don’t get offended


Irish people just deal with things. They don’t make a fuss about much. Can you imagine if an Irish person would complain to management of a store over racial stereotyping because of this costume? They would get laughed out of the store. Then again, if this were a slave outfit and it were sold as such how long do you think it last on the shelves? There are ethnic groups that are safe to ridicule because there is a history of  suffering and tolerance. If you are a Irish Christian, then your tolerance levels must be off the charts.

Are you pro or anti gun?

I’m not pro-gun or anti-gun, but rather gun neutral. I don’t care if people own guns and I don’t care if you choose not to purchase. I do think that we need to keep quiet about it. What I mean is, not brag about it or put a million stickers on your car. I don’t care if you hate guns either, and you should keep quiet about it.

At one point in history there were no guns, just people stabbing each other. Before we figured out how to stab each other, we beat each other to death. You won’t fix the problem by removing objects.

The problem is not guns, but people. Just as there is not a problem with rocks, but people again. Do you think if God banned all rocks then Cain wouldn’t have killed Abel? Certainly not, he would have found some other way to kill him. How do you remove human depravity? Simply put, you can’t.

Resist or Coexist?

I’m assuming this person is pro-choice because of the two options of resisting or coexisting. It’s a tough decision for sure.

If you really think about it logically, you can’t resist the urge to coexist. It’s a nice thought, but all religions don’t essentially teach the same thing. They all contradict each other.

You can’t resist to the point where you don’t pay your taxes. You can’t really resist arrest. Unless you like jail.

Do people still litter?

Pennywise will come eat you if you litter.

Yes they do, and I’m not sure why. Well, for one it’s easier to throw your garbage out of the window for someone else to deal with. What’s not easy is putting your trash in your map pocket of your car, or God forbid you have small trash bag in your car, and then emptying it out at the next destination.

The worst litter job I’ve ever seen was a man throwing entire bags of McDonald’s drive through out of his window. Not sure if he didn’t like the food or maybe his family didn’t appreciate all the hard work he performed that week and he disposed of their dinner in protest of their ungratefulness. Nonetheless, I saw the car rock back and forth and then three large bags of food went flying. They were full bags too, fries burst out and went everywhere.

 

You don’t own words

I watched an exchange on YouTube between two entertainers. One used a “ethnic slur” and the other called him out on it. However, the other person claimed they could use that word because they now owned it as a “people”. I’m sorry but I don’t know how certain groups of people can own words. Especially if they have a root negative connotation.

I understand that words have meaning based on their context. To be fair, if they make you upset when others say it to or about you, what about how it makes others feel when you call your own people the same thing? 

How about we expand our vocabulary and stop being stupid idiots? 

On being a contrarian…

Do you know someone who is always on the opposite side of your opinion. I’m not talking about your spouse, it’s supposed to be that way. But someone who always starts out their response with “Well, actually…”

Star Wars vs Star Trek, DC vs Marvel, Republican vs Democrat vs some weird 3rd party, Christian vs Pagan (Don’t even get me started on the Religious sub cultures, that’s and issue that loses more friendships than any)

Some people just like to hear your opinion first so they can play “devil’s advocate” and just get on your nerves. It’s tough to be friends with people like this. How do you deal with it? Well, you can always ask a bunch of follow up questions if they are the type of person that makes statements. The best way is just to keep quiet and not share your opinions. Someone can’t shoot you down if you don’t give them any ammo. Read twitter posts, Facebook status and just grin and move on. But you can’t can you? You must be right all the time, so unleash your best with no mercy and enjoy no friendships. I should delete this blog…
