    Some people are ignorant by choice. I had a couple Jehovah Witnesses drop by here a week or so ago. I engaged them in conversation about why they believe and why I measure empirical evidence and come to conclusions that are provable facts. These two older men did not know the difference between a hypothesis and a theory. They admitted to being content with getting knowledge (hahahaha) from their scriptures while I said No I want to know everything and even jokingly asked Do you guys even science? when discussing scientific errors in the Bible. They were scientifically illiterate by choice as well as having very little understanding of history, sociology, psychology etc.... Basically it boiled down to they love the high their neurotransmitters give them when they're doing their gawd thing and are content with their ignorance.
    You shoulda seen the looks on their faces when I brought up Lot mwahahahaha

    American media is controlled by a handful of old dicks.Its a psyops type campaign to maintain the current power structure. The house of representatives has turned into fucking dinner theater.  The republican party is tearing itself apart from the inside.Poor John McCain with the tea party is like the old man yelling at rowdy kids to get off his lawn. Its a motherfucking disservice to the American people for one side to consistently offer up fucking retarded candidates.WE are being ripped off every time some scientific illiterate goes to Washington. There should be a science test required before you can run for office and politicians need to leave their fucking religion at home. 
    I like to read about our politics from the perspective of the UK India Aljazeer etc. You cant count on what is here to get the whole story because there is too much smoke and mirrors. What you can do here is find actual journalists to follow, just like picking different politicians to follow. I like Rachel Maddow and Richard Engel but I read articles all over the place.

    Good points.
     
    This actually reminds me of an article from NPR:
     
    http://www.npr.org/2010/11/10/131216486/in-israel-when-is-a-jew-not-jewish-enough
     
    In Israel, they don't consider moderate Jews to even be Jewish. Its an interesting read, because all these people that think they are Jewish and contribute money, time and service to their beliefs are considered second hand citizens and not Jewish according to their religious laws. Which more of less throws their cherry picking beliefs back at them because they don't follow every orthodox law.
     
    Many people pick and choose what they believe and then call the other people in the news "Religious extremists".. Its not that they are extremists, these are the people that are following their scriptures. Everyone else only believes what they want to regardless of what is actually portrayed in their holy books.

    I'd love the full separation of church and state.. but what I'd like just as much is the separation of church and everything. I have never gone 1 day in my life without someone referencing something religious. Whether its the local news talking to some priest that had a prayer vigil for a murdered teen, or anything on facebook. Its always there. Its not as bad as in Pakistan or some of the muslim countries where they broadcast over loud speakers that its time for prayer. But still, we have the right of religious freedom in the US. But its more like we have the right to not have a religious affiliation, but not the right to be protected from it.
     
    I know I'm not being accosted by people that want to hammer me in the head with a bible. But what I would like is not have it pushed on me. Some people want to shield their children from violence or graphic scenes on television and there are warnings for it. But in terms of religion its up to the person presenting the news or the director of the movie / tv shows and there are no warnings for it. I can only assume that the people pushing their religious beliefs in these programs, news, movies, internet images, etc. know they are emphasizing their beliefs. They are not ignorant of that, but the true ignorance is like what you said.. they pick and choose their beliefs. If they pick and choose their beliefs they should consider themselves agnostic and stop slamming the cross image on everything especially considering that the more orthodox people of that same religion are the people that are spearheading the very arguements many self proclaimed christians are against.

    Youtube is really pushing the "Use your real name" option every time I log into youtube. No youtube I do not want to use my real name at this point. Anyway, I think it would be really funny that someday all the trolls out their will accidentally click that option and all their FAP posts in the past would then show up as being posted by their real life name. And if connected into their facebook accounts all their friends can graph search their friends name with videos they liked just to see all their FAP comments show up in their results. Whats really disturbing is that some ppl are using their real names and posting FAP comments. Disgusting individuals.

    Wow so true. I laughed pretty hard because of how sadly accurate that video is.  Its amazing how people can act when they are veiled by internet anonymity. Chances are presented with a real world situation these same people would not spew these vulgar sexist and/or hateful comments in fear of getting punched in the face, or not even that, the fact that they'd be looked down upon for their socially unacceptable behavior.

    There is no room for a civil debate or even a practical discussion on youtube, or any article on the gawker network. What little youtube videos I have are game play to share with friends. I turn comments and voting off just because I don't have time for trolls.

    There are plenty of women out there that could out shoot male shooters any day of the week. Glock employees a lot of them on their shooting teams. Of course some of them are held as "sexy oddities" because they are attractive, and they indulge their 'fans' likewise.
     
    The perception of women shooting guns has shifted over the years... a little slower than it should have. But as far as the retail market goes, Manufacturers like Glock, Ruger, Kimber, Bersa, Smith & Wesson, and Taurus have designed small concealable pistols that can easily fit into purses, concealed body hostlers, or simply in a pocket. They've definitely come a long way from the 2 shot derringer that has terrible accuracy. I know 3 of my female friends that carry. Grandma may not be able to handle a .45 but that .380 or 9mm in hollow point will take any man down, especially with 6-10 shots in the mag.  

    With all the crazies and rapists out there, sometimes mace or tasers just wont cut it. I've seen videos of people hyped up on some bad shit and 3 cops not able to bring him down with tasers. That crazy ex-husband may not care about a restraining order, or that homeless guy desperate for the pills that landed him there may lurk in the corner eyeballing that purse. It shouldn't be socially weird that a women or the elderly carry, they are both viewed as "easy targets" for sick people looking for a victim. Sometimes just pointing a piece at an unsuspecting foe is enough to get them to back off... if they don't? Their demise is a result of their own foolishness.

    I carry because I like to target shoot, and because of dumbshits that can't drive, don't follow the rules of the road, and then act like you are in the wrong when they perceived that you have wronged them. I don't do road rage, and ill drop anyone that thinks they need to get out of their vehicle to assault me because I didn't let them in front of me when they broke the law in trying to do so in the first place.
