Apologies for the title, but it was the only thing my tired brain could come up with on such short notice. I wasn't finding much in the Freeform Discussion thing, so I decided to make my own and thus here we are. Talk about whatever comes to mind first and don't worry about it sounding lame or too philosophical. Trust me, my brain will come up with some crazy stuff for us to talk about and you will commonly have a WTF moment as to how or why my weird brain came up with such ridiculous nonsense. So have at, my fellow Hubbers...why does that word make us sound like the ultimate couch potatoes?
I wear a luchador mask and $5 poncho. Do I wear the mask because I am embarrassed by the idiocy around me? Do I wear it because I am embarrassed by my own idiocy? Or do I wear it because it was on sale and I would be an idiot if I didn't buy it?
Because at the time that I made it I was a full time student, working full time, with a part time chaser, plus I was writing, selling Mary Kay, and being a mom to 3 boys. And Wonder Woman has some uhhhh.... (looks around for a moderator) assets and, of course, Bracelets of Victory
I can only post this as i'm in the Uk, & it's bedtime so i'll get back to yer another night.....Anyway Mankind aren't idiots, & to prove that look at technology etc....I know what you mean though, because look at what they do with the technology!....Mankind are "weak" that's what they are, & in general do exactly what their told.....Governments are the idiots, & that's what the idiocy of mankind is.....WTF? have the various Governments around the world, been doing for the last few hundred years?....Lining their pockets killings 10's of millions & their mates pockets & the Royals pockets etc, whilst shafting us all at the same time.....So there's mankind, but there's 2 kinds, there's us, & there's them.....Their the slave masters, & we're the slaves.....Where was your land to farm when you was born?, your relatives "must" have had one at some time in history....Mankind is exactly how the Governments want them to be, so if the USA is like the UK, & turning to shite, who do you blame?.....You can't blame the masses they haven't been running the show, it's the Governments show so their obviously to blame for everything....The only thing i blame the masses for is for being weak, & the majority are failing lifes test.
I must say that you have made some excellent points, but even a single individual can effect change...even if it is one person at a time. As for governments, they are ruled by greed and the lust for power. And to be honest, it will take an idiot with more courage than they thought they had to change the idiocy that is governments.
PS: Yes, the US is going into the toilet at an alarming rate, forcing people like me to do Hub Pages because we can't get 'normal' jobs.
I beg to differ buddy, a single person has never changed anything ever (maybe slowed something down, or outed something/someone)....Whatever is happening now, has bee planned well in advance....I say the governments are idiots, but i know their very clever people that just pass themselves off as idiots....You've got a 2 party "system" in the USA, just like we have now in the UK.....So it doesn't matter which one you vote for, the same exact "planned" shite will get rolled out behind the scenes.....Politicians are just puppets mate, their ran by the power mad people who ever they are.....Why are our 2 countries buying everything from China?, a country with zero human rights....Then we go around the world, posing as the worlds "policemen"!lol
A single person creates the spark. In the words of the Doctor 'Great men are forged through fire, it is the duty of lesser men to light the flame.' So initially, you may not see results but given time, it can turn into a roaring flame. How do think the whole Women's rights movement got started or the abolishment of slavery occurred. It takes a single person to get the ball rolling.
The right to vote is at the top of the list. Not to mention, being able to pursue careers that were completely male driven for a long time. Women have come a long way, but there is still much that could be changed. A woman I may be, but my only desire is to leave something positive behind to help guide future generations. Thus the reason why I am now pursuing my dream of becoming a novelist.
*raises an eyebrow* He's learning how to putt on a toilet. That definitely implies laziness since the act is taking place while sitting down when the original act that he is honing the skill for requires him to be standing not sitting.
No need to apologize it does reflect my opinion too. Who would still believe that capitalism works for the people's happiness? Who would still believe that our governments (mainly westerners) or any corporation have our interests in mind? Who would still believe that Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Syria... were more dictatorships that our "sweet" West? Who would believe that the IMF, the UNO ... work for the interests of the world versus ours? Who would still believe that the elite and the corporations will pay in the future as many taxes as the lower classes? Who would still believe that our national natural resources don't believe to the people versus private interests? Who would still believe that the overexploitation of our ground without environmental consequences?.... Who would still believe in a rosy future?
Those who wear rose tinted glasses. Hm, sounds like something from Depeche Mode. I have probably stated this before somewhere, but the world has gone mad! To quote one of the characters of the Sherlock series, 'Why can't people just think?' There is a reason we have that gray squishy stuff between our ears. It is not there as a place holder.
I don't believe it for one minute maxoxam41, & the trouble with most peeps is it's too far fetched to be believed.....I live in the UK, & i know i was born a slave....They stole the land then they stole the gold etc, now i can work for them for 40 years to get a piece of my land back....My house is my prison cell, & my town is nothing better than an open prison....If someone has 100 grand in the bank, congratulations, they have 100 grands worth of paper, while the bankers keep the gold....People can't think anymore the governments seen to that, & most people worship celebrities money power & greed....It's not all doom & gloom though as the Brazil World Cups coming up, so that's another 20/30 billion wasted!lol
The economy is in a ditch. Should governments be spending or cutting to help get it out?Much of the focus recently has been reducing government debt. But if the weak economy is on the verge of falling further, should government be spending more in the short term? What would you do?
Have we reached the maximum human population carrying capacity?If you refer to the picture, this can be observed when viewing population of bacteria growing in a petri dish. If Earth is the petri dish, where do you think humans are on this chart? Is our population about to crash?
By the whinging on the forum. As time's gone by, I've felt less and less inclined to use the forum, help out, participate etc.Maybe I'm alone in my thinking but the p*ssing and moaning that goes on is cringe worthy and pathetic. Do folks ever read back before they hit 'submit'? There are some...
Whilst talking with some other Hubber's we were disscussing new technologies, and i thought it would make for a good disscussion here! So what technological, scientific or engineering advancement do you think will cause man to advance the most and why?Nanotechnology, Quantum computing, the...
Is Internet creating a new religion ?There was a time when communication was limited and a few people could travel to the different corners of the earth and that too with spending a lot of time. Spreading and exchanging thoughts in the matters of religion was limited to a narrow circle. But...
I am still new at writing field, and I find some hubbers to be RUDE. Is it actually right to say that your ideas is IDIOCY? Have you encountered some hubbers who have this level of intelligence ? A level that don't accept ideas from fellow writers, and the worst is, they tell you that your idea is...
