The Right To Bear Common Sense

After reading some comments following an online news story I had read, I realized how suprised ( should know better by now) I was how quickly it turns into a hateful back and forth that turns into personal attacks against people that rarely even make sense.
Its reminiscent of the daycare play circles of my younger days.
So.... my point. I, like an idiot, tried to interject my own insight on the news article and was quickly the center of attack. Which doesn't bother me, but the hate we distribute does. So on a lighter note I have a proposal......

I believe you should be required to obtain a Carry Permit, showing you understand what it is, how to properly use it, and when, before you go out in public and attack someone with a Bible.
The reason for this is basic safety. The worst thing that can happen if untrained is that your rhetoric may be taken away from you in the struggle and used against you, causing you painful lasting embarassment.
I have read the Bible several times and I always appreciate the words that lead to deeper thinking as my perspectives change.
But I would never try to go out and beat someone to death with it verbally. I am suprised how radical some of these individuals are, like the ones you see on the news. One major difference of course. The ones on TV don't have computers, hi def TVs or electricity in some cases, so they take to the streets to vent. Where as here people park themselves in front of big screen TVs with tablets on their lap, sitting in chairs they are quickly growing to fit, believing that a trip to the local box store constitutes exercise.

So in short, debate is fun. Not hateful, we exchange views and opinions about the issues. Not each other. When I am attacked I sometimes type out a personal quip, read it, delete the personal part and send. I win with the facts. It is tough to resist, but it starts with you.

Hats

So I'm sitting here @ the DMV, a thriving microcosm of ones local society, and I'm noticing that I was the only one who has taken his hat off. I understand the beanie for your dreads and all but baseball caps should be off indoors. This is Florida. The state where I learned my manners. And this guy next to me is like 50, and has on a hat. Am I being ridiculous? I understand that society evolves and changes its norms, but some things are permanent, right?? Like the Constitution of manners or something?
Sadly, once again I realize I am not living in the 50's, never did live in them, but still miss them when I view some of the decay in the fabric of our society. End trans.lol

Evolution

I am beginning a blog to document the randomness that bounces around in my head. It will be open to all and I will entertain discussions that are cerebral and basically remain calm. If you feel compelled to lash out at individuals or be mean and stubborn on your opinions, then please find another medium for it. It drives me nuts when harmless comments on blog sites I visit turn into vicious personal attack and degenerate to a grade school recess discussion level. Don't want it here. I will turn this into my own crazy mans notebook if I have too, but I enjoy sharing thoughts and opinions with others. More to come........
