Awareness of the danger is to control it. Sometime I will string something in the butt before it grows and gets too ugly. Or just ignore it if it gets really fugugly because generally I'm a lover, not a fighter.
You have to sting arbitrarily some times just to keep the stinger sharp. I don't pretend to be a good boy at all times, and sometimes I just want to slap some of the ignorant people around me, as I'm sure some would love to slap me. But one settles for small victories, so one does unto others sometimes, whether they deserve it or not. We feel guilt for victimizing those close to us, but messing with someone you don't like feels pretty good.
All machinery. Hardly a human being in sight, apart from those hanging from parachutes. Yet behind the scenes are people. People setting the strategies; the designs for new armaments and machines to deliver them; political upstarts; persons who kid themselves they are good christians and doing the right thing by their country; preaching forgiveness and contrite hearts; convincing the youth of the country (-ies) that they must be patriotic and do their duty.
So, what must the likes of "I" do about this? If I am disgusted with the actions of faceless people out there who organize our society for grossly uncivilized purpose, how can "I" make any difference at all?
One tiny little voice amongst millions.
Around the world right now we hear of numerous communities getting up and fighting officialdom in order to get a fairer deal. Those rebelling are of various political and religious persuasions, so we cannot single out one group for criticism. When they have fought for so long, and perhaps routed the corrupt regime, what are they left with? Is it a better society than they had under the former executive? Often I doubt it. Is it because the individuals of society have not changed themselves? Is it because good, strong, honest leadership is lacking? If there was good leadership, would "I" be willing to give my backing to that leadership? There is maybe too much dependence on other people to change, without looking to "myself" for change.
Your in luck, for every tiny voice and every tiny step any person takes, it dose makes some change. Because the other super power other than the military is Global public opinion. It is the small grass root groups that start locally wail thinking globally that really make the changes for the better in the World
We are taking steps towards green living, that might sound too gaylike for a lot of people's thinking for right now, I say, what ever works without harm
It must be my ego gets out of whack when I am talking with these military guys. Because 95% of things I can agree with people.,Or it's this 5% disagreeable part, that becomes very ugly when I'm on the military forum or in person..
Ha ha I've been told I sting like a scorpion, but usually it takes someone to wear my patience over a long period of time. I choose my battles wisely, but you do something that has a big impact on myself or others I can sting hard. lol
More so life threatening situations, or survival. Arguments really not where I sting. Just behaviors offline where people are physically harmful, violent towards others, or over stepping boundaries. Again it would have to be something very major!
A false sense pride can be a weakness. One perceives a weakness (for arguments sake) and attacks the center of the said perception. When looking at a wasp nest, keep your distance. When confronted by a wasp, just be cool and the wasp will go away.
I watched a movie the other night with my sister and brother-in-law called "A Smile Bigger Than the Moon". The movie was about "Special Ed Children" in their teens. Their teacher worked very hard to get these children a trip to "Space Camp". I recommend this movie for everyone to see. Anyway, if you think words can't hurt, you ask thes kids. I can tell you that words do hurt. I grew up being bullied all my school years. I know how they can hurt. Greg
Our lives are like having a bee hive in our home. We live with them because we know the bees and we never get stung. When a stranger visits and we fail to tell them about the bees they sometimes get stung. Then we have to ask ourselves who is at fault. I actually dreamed this and woke up and wondered what the dream was about. The walls in my home were hives but I never got stung and I wondered why? You have to understand the bees if you do not want to get stung.
I'm talking about wasp(insect). But if you look at life in general, all creatures are the same in some way or another. Wasps are quick to defend themselve's, so are we. The difference is, a wasp won't sting for no reason.
I have been threatened, along with others, with eternal damnation from many believers here. They claim they are not threatening me, yet by definition, they most certainly are threatening, even though they are just...
I have been told that my belief in the Bible and God is a threat to non believers. My question is, How is something you don't believe in a threat to you? If I don't believe in something I don't feel...
