This, This, and That.

Well, OldNFO called for the old me to come back. Here I am...and here is a chance for all those who disagree or wish for a more profound stance...to burn me down. I'm ready.

My homeland was faced with a dangerous situation. In Gotham city, our brothers and sisters in blue had to deal with this yesterday.

On social media, gun control advocates are out in full force. For quite some time I chose to ignore them. Then I proceeded to engage because the stupidity of some was just too much. I had some good civil discourse, some great conversation, and in some cases I am sure I was on an alien invasion thread. Sigh.

The stupid is strong in many.

Sadly it is easily fixed with education. However, most cannot enroll in that notion because it might open their eyes and change their position. Wow. What a concept.

Over the years, my position has changed on many platforms with time and knowledge. People are driven by their own fears and skewed intakes rather than intelligent, all encompassing data.


I cannot help it if I have had a dose of the real world to help me form my decisions.

Academia is not reality. However, it is necessary. But still, not at all reality.

Come back in 20 years after you have entered the real world. Then talk to me.


But then again, the world keeps disclosing these really evil people and things and conspiracies. Maybe the wingnuts are right. Or left. I guess it depends on which side you come from. That was a punny.

>>>THAT. >>>>>>>

Welcome back, and agree. The real world is not easy, nor is it clean and black and white. With the 'education' you get in the real world, you can and do change positions on certain thing, based on reality.

Herein lies the problem: “Sadly it is easily fixed with education. However, most cannot enroll in that notion because it might open their eyes and change their position.“

I’ve had several social media exchanges over the last week or so that came down to “agree to disagree” or “you won’t change my mind with the facts”. I actually had someone ask me if I had read the second amendment and then proceed to tell me that it was only intended to cover muskets which would have been kept under lock and key guarded by at least 2 men. She has since taken down the entire exchange but not before I screen captured the entire thing.

There are none so truly blind as those who will not see.

Well said, but truth and facts just don't seem to work with the left.

Momma Fargo:
---Very well said on ALL points.
We definitely have an "education "gap" these days in that schools are beset with state and federal "standards" they have to meet (or loose that golden goose of grant monies).
How does that REALLY impact the kids?
(not as much as we're led to believe).
---It's a whole different ballgame out there in the real world...whether it's in education, or LAW-ENFORCEMENT.
And you're just not gonna hit a hardball homer with a damn NERF bat.
---I also agree that the REAL world is NOT easy, but it IS a learning experience (until you take the big dirt nap),
And it takes the ability to choose to PAY ATTENTION.
Maybe these newer generations would be better served if they took a little time to figure that one out.

Good post (and excellent comments).

Roll safe down there, Kiddo.
