HMJC: the occupiers need a spokesperson. Essesntially as I understand them they are protesting the growing disparity between the wealthy and the poor and middle class.
Jimmy, I get that, don't necessarily disagree. My lack of understanding continues to be peaked by the specific focusing on wall street and the banks. My opinion is that this the easiest target to blame. My question is, is that the biggest contributing cause?
If I am not mistaken, it is not wall street's fault that:
- the unemployment rate is so high.
- record numbers of Americans are on food stamps.
- that trillions of dollars flow out of our country to support countries that do not like the U.S., but of course do like the aid.
The list can go on and on. Until we realize we are part of the problem, it will continue to exist. The bottom line is this, we don't want the government to tell us what to do, but we still want it to provide unabated subsistence with out merit. I close with my original suggestion; occupy a job and be part of the solution.
Glad to know that you do Murr... All joking aside, this is a forum where all are entitled to maintain thier own opinions, you included Murr. However, please dont make your return to the pages alluding that anyone that does not agree with you is uneducated or just wrong...Please continue to be a part, just try to be objective and leave the personal attacks for your friends and nieghbors...
Ha know, if your gonna fight, at least make it entertaining. Reposting the same old drivel id hardly simulating. Reminds me ofkids in the backseat, "He touched me." "Na-uh, she touched me."
I didn't know people "get gay ". Anyway that is another blog. The fact you keep dragging up Jimmy 's behavior to justify your own is a bunch of tripe. Jimmy crossed a line and paid for it. He learned his lesson and has been a model poster since then. No one, not me, Seb, IKY or anyone else is responsible for your behavior except you. Stop baiting people and post the intelligent blogs I know you are capable of.
Aww Murr, so nice to have you back. I find the pious comment unfortunete but expected. Murr it would be nice if you would actually have a point. It still seems that your blogging skills are limited to personal attacks and the need to validate your own qualifications to comment. Regardless Murr, I look forward to your demeaning dialouge and lack of perspective.
Murr has a lot of good strenghts Jimmy. It is just frustrating that she wastes her gifts on activities that are beneath her level of intelligence
Murr does indeed have a lot of good strengths.
She however gets brutal at times.
Jimmy Mack, you too have done the same in the past.
You both are well informed and each of you are gifted wordsmiths.
Murr's comment on this blog screen is a very profound assesment and I for one agree with her often but not always.
I am referring to the post of Wed Sept 19, 2012 at 14:51.
sebekm, no personal offence intended but we don't agree but about half of the time.
However I do appreciate the gentalemanly approach you adhere to in your posts.
Murr I'm glad you are back.
Let's all dig a little deaper into this issue.
Probably should have been gentlemanly and I'm really not sure.
I'm not nearly as skilled as most of the rest of you.
Bear with me please.
or...others of us did not have the intestinal fortitude to serve in the military and choose to belittle it due to a complete lack of understanding of the process
Seb as you are aware, most people with am understading of the military understand that serving is not tied to a motive. You dont serve because:
- to affect how one perceives you
- personal gain
- and darn sure not for the money!
I am a disabled veteran and hold no malice whatsoever towards the military. It was and always will be a part of my life. I served because I was something bigger than me. I served because I did and still do believe of the merits of service. I am no better or worse than anyone who did not serve. Just a Soldier that can look himself in the mirror and know that I did my part. I will ask though, that for those that have zero understanding of the military lifestyle, don't comment on something you have no qualifications to assess
that's a whole lot of tyring to say nothing Murr, good on ya though. If that is your objective response, so be it. I am not worried about it Sebe, I know what we have done and expect nothing.
