Odd assortment

We sure do have an odd assortment on here!
We have people who click when they walk to keep from falling down, or over; people who are absolutely sure that what they profess as religion is all there is; people who like to indicate their ability to use all sorts of fancy words; people who obviously are better than some of us; ignorant people, or so it appears to some; rassler fans, real rassler believers; non-assimilated; assimilators; democrats; republicans; independents (the worst kind); power addicts; military types (what does that mean, says Denise and Muddle); many computer-chair warriors; NASCAR noise and power lovers (also beer lovers); many alcoholics. who don't even know they are; and, of course, git real, who is anything but any of these!
There are no deep thinkers on here (a few copiers); no people of status, it seems; people who don't like to be confused--they all are easily confused; there are no people on here with much of a sense of humor. Too bad.

You remind me of Pooh Bear, who said, "I am a bear of very little brain, and big words bother me."

Or there is my student from several years ago. A black male, he approached me after a class (Intro to Philosophy). He explained to me that blacks would not want to take my classes because "The white man invented words like 'epistemology' and 'ontological' in order to keep the black man down."

That was one smart black student considering those two words!
Both words mentioned have to do with speculation, not facts.
It would teach more to simply say that educated guesses are helpful towards the progress of man, instead of floating out someone's probable doctoral dissertation to confound the issue.
Teaching is for those who can't do, just teach.

Here's another bothersome word for you.

Words like "epistemology" and "ontological" (I'll leave it to you to not look them up) have Greek roots. They gained acceptance because they were descriptive of their respective subject matters.

My student dropped out of college. You, apparently, would follow suit.

You are our resident anti-intellectual. Your distaste for any attempt at thinking through important issues--as opposed to spouting off with top-of-the-head nonsense--counts against you.

You don't even really have opinions--just reactions, akin to what happens when the doctor taps your knee.

Why do you post?

Better: Why do I reply?

You didn't mention them.

I only know one, Boortz.
Then there is that congressman, a republican, I think, who runs as a republican and says he is a libertarian.
I don't know what they are; I think they think if it feels good, do it!

Why is it, Dollar, that every time I read one of your posts, I can tell it's YOU before I even get to the bottom and see your name? You always seem to have this hateful, ranting, sometimes non-sensical sound to your writing. Are you that miserable in real life?

I feel the same way about Shakespeare and George Bush!
