Why do people feel the need to comment on topics they know nothing about and how do I shut them up?
One of my best friends is beautiful, funny and loyal but the downside is she is ignorant she doesn't seem to understand that the majority of refugees are in this country ie Scotland because they have no option and are unsafe in there own country! She seems to think that all or these as she calls them "foreigners" come into this country sponge our benefits and steal our jobs how can I make her understand that this isn't the case 99% of the time? I love her but I hate her views on this issue and she knows I do but she always thinks she's right! Any advice?? Thanks ????
She's right - it's not Scotland's job to take care of the world and its true, refugees go to where the best benefits are.
It's been my experience, in a situation such as this where you have no control over events, it's best NOT to get into a heated discussion about it — especially with someone you value as a friend.

I blame Hilary Clinton for this. Hilary created the benchmark for political female "hotness" or "not-so-hotness". And when Palin crashed the scene, everyone suddenly thought she was a supermodel. Thanks Hilary. I have a sneaking suspicion that under Palin's pants...

Why do people who know little or nothing about guns feel compelled to comment on them anyway?Those who don't know the difference between a Glock and a glockenspiel, a .45 ACP and a 45-RPM record, an automatic bank draft and an automatic firearm still think they have all the answers to solving the...
