359: Opinion? Everybody’s Got One…..

…and, like most assholes, they are usually full of shit. Yeah, I know the old joke – that really isn’t a joke. It does appear that most people today ardently believe that other people’s opinions (read: other people’s opposing opinions that don’t agree, lock-step, with mine) are full of shit. Scatology aside, it is fair to say that some people are pretty crappy, and you would expect that their opinions would naturally follow suit.

Still, just because someone does not agree with your view of the world and the rightness of things in general does not, ipso facto, make them shit-carriers. It is possible *gasp* that they could actually have the right of things and YOU are the stinky one.

I commented on Facebook lately to a former student, now grown into independent adulthood quite well, thank you, that he was flogging a dead horse by trying to convince a liberal DemocRAT to change their opinions by presenting them with facts and logic. Liberals recognize nothing that is not on their previously conceived and accepted agenda – all facts to the contrary. They call you ugly names for even trying. And the worst part of it is that they are very, very similar to radical Muslims.

Don’t throw rocks at me. I know Muslims who are decent, hardworking family-oriented people. In fact, praise God, I don’t actually know any Muslims who are not reasonable, rational people, but I read about them all the time in the news, unfortunately, so I do know that not all Muslims are the sort I know. And liberal DemocRATS are like the WORST sort of Muslims. They are rabid about their agenda like fanatical Muslims are about any imagined slur towards the Koran or the prophet Mohammed – and behead all unbelievers.

Notice how violently, aggressively and rabidly the liberals and their complicit cronies, the liberal-oriented press, attack and vilify anyone who has any criticism whatsoever of officially accepted liberal policies or leaders – or who has anything to say in support of what used to be thought of as traditional American values. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!! This is fanaticism of the worst sort – that refuses to believe that the opinions (morals, values, ethics whattheheckeveryacall it) of others have any validity at all…not even based on the right to be human and think for oneself. Heck no – behead the unbelievers!!

It is tough enough thinking for yourself without someone who supposedly believes in the sacredness of the individual berating you for doing it. Stand your ground, and persist. Be the boulder in a liberal’s path, and make them GO AROUND. You are important, and so are your opinions…articulated aloud or not.

  1. Hey there, thanks for visiting my blog and commenting and following. I have just read through a number of your posts, and I love the fact that what you write is so real and raw. If that makes any sense to you. No gilding, no glossing over, – the children of the rich and the poor are both poor alike – there is a german word for it “wohlstands-verwahrlost” – loosely translated “neglectedthroughafluence” – re the militant – they are out there in every religion, in every country, the anti-abortionists, and the racists, the sexists – and in some sad and funny way while they berate one another and the other minded – they all end up behaving so much the same in the name of their ideology. And like your students from challenged backgrounds – a lot of militant anything stems from ignorance.

    I disagree though that you cannot open new horizons to people, you may not be able to put something into them that wasn’t there, but if they are young and talented and you can open their eyes you can pull one out. Surrounded by ignorance and a world that only has one option (welfare) in it, it makes sense that that is all they can see and I guess like your crabs alone they cannot make it but I am sure over the years you saved the odd one, even if you don’t know it.

    I loved the story of the sewing machine. I have had a brand spanking new one in the cupboard for 5 years, I have used it once, I would have lent it to you.

    • You go to work every day for the ones who you can SEE have something on the ball, and you work for them all, even the ones who need it most, the most unlovable. I used to have a lot of stuff – and then I sold everything and moved country. Sometimes the memories of things I had brings a pang, but overall, I am glad I did what I did. I miss the people and some of my stuff, but I don’t miss the job or the government.
      I’m glad you like my writing ramblings…they are good for insomnia!!

  2. Impressive on all fronts – truly. You’ve done what many have dreamed about – very courageous – and drawn personal consequences, also very courageous, I think as I look at my new sewing machine and all my stuff…which I find easy to accumulate but hard to let go of.

    • I gave some of the important things to family, and I hope they like them enough to keep them, too. My daughter has all the family Christmas ornaments now…passing the torch! Thanks for commenting, and for the follow!
