Anger

February 21, 2008

You know what pisses me off? People who have a brain in their fucking head and don’t use it. You see that in political debate more than anything else. Idiot partisan would rather play gotcha politics that have a reasoned discussion.

“Oh, no! You disagreed! Wah! Wah! Wah!”

What pisses me off more than that is that I try to get idiot partisans to enter into a reasoned discussion and they’d rather assume that I’m attacking them, or take the most inane comment as an offense rather than having a real discussion.

As a human, it offends me that so many smart people refuse to use the brain that they were lucky enough to be born with. I can’t think of any greater waste.

    “As a human, it offends me …..”

    Um….you’re human? LOL, who knew.

    Seriously, I understand what you are saying I find it totally annoying. The answer is not always, in fact hardly ever, black and white. Those who think that way, especially when they make everything partisan, are myopic to their own detriment and to the detriment of good, honest, and free debate.

    I just don’t get it.

    The shear willfulness of the ignorance is certainly astounding, but sometimes you even get to see entitlement to said ignorance — that the only thing that is important is to have an opinion and since all opinions are created equal, well, there you go!

    I worry about these peoples’ kids. Math and science skills and knowledge are still crucial to the economy and we are importing more individuals in some fields than we create. How the heck do you maintain a knowledge-based economy with so many grownups so completely hostile to knowledge?
