Questions:

Do guns protect people or kill people?  Or both?

Guns kill. Too me, that’s the whole function of a gun. It’s there to kill, whether it’s because you’re hunting an animal, or shooting at an intruder. The point of a gun is too kill. Even if you’re shooting at an intruder to protect your family, and you shoot and they die. They still died. The gun didn’t talk to the intruder to put it on a better path. They’re dead…Stone cold dead. You may shoot at someone to protect your family, but that gun that you are shooting at another human being with, can still kill them. That’s what they’re for…To kill.

Is it more important to be respected or liked?

Respected.

Is having a big ego a negative or  positive trait?  (yeah I know.  Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile)

Sometimes it could be a positive trait, a big ego, you think you’re unstoppable. I do think there’s a difference between a huge ego and a narcissistic personality disorder though. I think there’s actually nothing wrong with a big ego, as long as you’re not harming others with it,lol

Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning? 

I love the movie “The Mummy” and one of the quotes in there is when Imhotep says “Death in only the beginning”. I think it is, to an extent. I do think that there are such things as Guardian Angels, Angels, rebirth. I do believe that we come here to learn lessons, and then far later on we are reborn as someone else. That’s why I believe in soul mates. I believe that we meet certain people, in each life.

It’s tough right now to count the blessings we have.   Being grateful for being confined to our homes and having reality skewed out of kilter for some is depressing.   So if there is something positive or uplifting or something you’re grateful for that you’d like to share (pictures, memes, images, thoughts) please!  Do share!  Thanks!   🙂

We’re waxing philosophical in our questions today:

  1. Can we ever experience anything objectively?  Why or why not?  (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise):  Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions). I think we definitely can. I think sometimes, depending on the circumstances, it can be hard or easy. I think it also can depend on how you were brought up. Yeah, it can definitely done be done. I think at the moment, it’s a bit harder to do. I had a conversation with someone today where because Trump said he wasn’t aware of the “phone call”. Then it must be true. So I showed him a whole lot of articles showing where Trump lied, including one today that involved Apple. So he may not be the most objective when it comes to telling the truth.
  2. Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul? I think we do all have a soul. Including animals. I’m not necessarily religious, but I do believe we all have a soul.
  3. Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”) I actually have no idea. I’ve been around some really horrible people who’ve passed away, or like famous “paedophiles, murderers” etc. When they die, people suddenly have a bad word to say? I don’t understand it personally. My mama did teach me though, “when you’ve got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all” So while others may speak well, I just try not to say anything.
  4. Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.  Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating.  While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence. I honestly just miss seeing a kind leader. I see someone like Jacinda Arden and I can’t help but think “What went so wrong everywhere else?”

QUESTIONS:

Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?

You know, I have no idea why. Someone can be this really horrible person and yet when they die, people insist on only talking about the good things they had done. Except for the people who had nothing to do them with anymore when they had died. In a way it’s a good thing, because just because they were horrible, doesn’t mean we are. If that makes sense?lol

Why is beauty associated with morality?  Or not?   (a few weeks back I asked a similar question, but the key word was MORTALITY, not MORALITY).  

I know a lot of people like to do this. But it can also depend on the person, like how some people dislike Michelle Obama, a really wonderful person. Whereas they think Melania is really gorgeous, despite her face being stuck in the same position and joining in with her husbands bitherism.

I absolutely adore Michelle Obama and to me that makes her beautiful. I literally cannot fathom what “beauty” people see in Melania, she’s not a beauty to me, at all. I used to feel sorry for her and could see a sad beauty in her, but once she wore that jacket…She could get lost for all I cared and whinged “I’m the most bullied person in the world”. I even thought her birtherism comments were because all she had in America, was Trump. Nope, I think she’s just generally an ugly person, how else can you explain her getting married to Trump to begin with?

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?

Oh, they definitely can do that! It’s all about learning about a nice balance.

Is there a perfect life?  What’s your version of a perfect life if you care to share?

I don’t think there is a “perfect life”. I think that there are definitely perfect moments though.

If you’d like, please share something uplifting or for which you are grateful.

Respect

Recently I got into a “discussion” on The Fitness Marshall Instagram page (love him) He is kissing his partner near the lawn of the White House and said “Here you go Pence” or something similiar…Oh my god…The haters! People who follow him, they know he’s gay, calling him disrespectful.

One of them they said though “Pence hasn’t changed anything to the LGBT (which is true, he’s done nothing…because he actually can’t). Also though they said “Just because Pence doesn’t agree with you, doesn’t mean he doesn’t respect you”. Which would normally I would totally agree. You don’t have to agree with someone to respect them.

HOWEVER

When someone is actively trying to make your life harder, try to make Laws that forbid you from getting married, trying to put Laws into place that make it easier for people to discriminate against you. Laws that make it virtually impossible for you to adopt…That is NOT respect.

Bye Bye Haters!…

I really feel like this year has become the year where I stopped giving a …

I would like to just say that I love these little Beetles, they are so determined with something so gross,lol

I feel like this has been the first year where I really stopped caring so much. Every now and then I’ll have to take time off of social media, because my anxiety plays up. But I feel like I actually have spent a year truly respecting myself. Sometimes respecting yourself does mean to take time to yourself.

It’s interesting because it was thanks to my three ex “best friends” and what happened at the beginning of the year. I was in shock for a while, maybe a week and then after that I just got annoyed and I’ve been annoyed for a while now, but I still didn’t miss them. I don’t even think for an hour. Too myself, if I can let go of them, and be alright…Because it was right…Then I can do it with anyone! Especially if it’s right and that’s when everything go easier for me.

That is something I want to focus on more next year. Walking away instead of hanging around and hanging on for sentimental reasons. If it’s not right, then it’s not right.

Watch out for the Storm!

Can I just say that I LOVE Stormy Daniels and her Lawyer, Michael Avenatti (he is freaking brilliant!)

Trump supporters are the worst though! They don’t have respect for Stormy because how dare she have people pay her for sex…Because we all know that she has to put a gun to their head to do it, right? Yet…Just completely turn a blind eye to the facts that Trump paid to have sex with her, to begin with…While married.

The one comment that cracked me up was “Respect is earned, not given” which they are completely right about. However, they keep saying because she’s a porn star, she has no respect…Hey, if you are stupid enough to have to pay for sex, especially when you’re married…And hey, isn’t he the one that said “When you’re famous they’ll let you do anything to them”…Yet, he STILL had to pay for it…But she’s the one with no respect? She’s gotta be doing something right! Yet, to them, Stormy’s the problem.

I don’t know why I try to get some common sense into their brains.

Why is Trump, the President of the United States, not being held at such a high standard?

Echo, Echo, Echo

Sometimes I feel like they are repeatedly being told this, but they are just choosing not to listen…So I’m done retelling them…Over…and over…and over again…

White People! Yo!

I keep seeing all these Repbulicans white folks suddenly agreeing with a African american (ie Kanye West) who has clearly lost his mind.

Unless we are with African Americans and POC in general, then we just need to shut up! I know, I know…Freedom of Speech and all that…But we do not understand at all. We need to listen.

I have literally gotten into SO many arguments lately over really stupid things and I am so annoyed with myself I got involved.

  • The first was the NRA advertising a gun that looks like a cell phone. In this particular post, the headline picture was of an actual gun. Of course the 2A “defenders” were saying that Liberals are stupid…That’s what they got out of the article…So I told them to look up Stephon Clark and they should be ashamed of themselves trying to #whataboutism from the actual topic.
  • The second argument I got into was about the new Obama’s Netflix Documentary. How all these people are cancelling their Netflix accounts (a big whoopdie do) All these white folks saying how they can’t wait for Obama to be arrested…For what? I’m not exactly sure, since they still have not been able to answer us. Far as I know, Obama is not being currently investigated for anything and hasn’t been charged with anything. Kind of hard to get arrested (although it is America…no offence) for not doing anything.
  • The third argument I was getting into was about Trump and how he’s not a racist. The funny thing was when the Trump supporter brought up Melania…He called her Melanie, just like Donald…He has so much respect for Melania, he can’t even get her name right! I didn’t even realise until a couple of comments in.

I have to stop “arguing” with these morons,lol

The Future…

Heavygrinder

I found this on the Facebook page HeavyGrinder … I have also since unliked the page, because this “post” is so stupid and so wrong.

I hate pictures like these…Just be grateful that we are not in a War…I wouldn’t want a Nazi defending me anyways! It’s pretty disrespectful as well, since that is what they fought for, for us to be safe. So that there are no more Wars

Also…the guy on the left is actually a Nazi solider…

There is SO much wrong with this comparison,lol…People can’t have fun anymore? I know plenty of young people in the Army who use snap-chat…It’s a good way to have some fun…We don’t know this boy, and you know what they say about assumptions!

The IRONY of someone posting about the young people being “weak” because of social media…While posting this picture on a social media platform, via a social media Facebook page … Oh the IRONY!

The solider is a German solider…So they want their children to be a Nazi?…We are VERY lucky in Australia…The kids in american are facing a battle right now. They don’t know when the next mass shooting will take place, but they still have to go…I’d call that extremely brave! Let alone all the cyber bullying that has just exploded these days.

Yes to a “Fair Go”

I wanted to start this post off by saying that I will be voting “Yes” for Marriage Equality is Australia.

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks regarding this topic, there are lot of people who feel like they are being pushed into saying “yes” so they are voting “no”. Which I honestly think is the LAMEST reason ever to vote for No for anything. Have a backbone, think for yourself. For all those people who are saying they are voting because they feel bullied into voting Yes…

How little respect do you have for yourself? I mean, truly, honestly?

You are really admitting that you care about what others/strangers thing? That you don’t have the respect for yourself to stand by what you think and believe. If these “libtards” and “left wingers” told you NOT to jump off the edge of the cliff and kept telling you not to do it…Would you do it, just to spite them?

I don’t really understand why someone would vote “No” and especially since I have seen no reason, legal or common sense wise, that has made me go “That’s a good point”. However, I do respect those people who are voting “no” and not because they were just trying to spite other people. They are actually standing to their own ideas, rather than following a crowd.

Think about it this way…If you’re voting “No” because the “yes” side have made you feel ‘silenced’ or are ‘mean’…Guess what genius…This is what homosexual people face EVERY SINGLE DAY! Except it far more extreme than you feeling attacked by strangers on Facebook. Gay people being discriminated and having to hear no every say, they face being kicked out by their families, possibly killed by a family member. Most gay people are killed by someone they know for being gay.

So sorry if I don’t feel sorry for you if you feel you are being attacked by the Yes side.

I have seen none of these attacking from the Yes side…Only once recently and I was so embarassed for them…Apart from that I’ve seen people who are trying to understand why people would think it’s alright to Vote No…All I’ve seen from the No side is that stupid video that actually had nothing to do with same sex marriage and more to do with safe schools…Which are two completely different subjects. I have had a tonne of  vote no pamphlets in my letterbox. Let alone the disgusting hate speech through by the very far right Christians who are wandering up and down malls telling them that they are going to hell.

Gay people are attacked every day…Not once in a while…EVERY SINGLE DAY…They are literally dying by the hands of others, because of bullying and for fear of being outed.

So no, I don’t feel sorry for those who feel attacked on Facebook because people don’t agree with them. This is what gay people deal with every single day…Get over yourself, if you want to live in a country where gay people can’t get married. Go live in North Korea, or Russia. Since you seem think it’s okay to continually discriminate while crying “victim” because someone doesn’t agree with you.

Fair Go!
