The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
Hypothetical Situation #1 - Someone is giving a wedding toast, it's HIGHLY inappropriate at one point. The person giving the toast is stopped politely and seated. Now there is a mild clapping of hands because it would be impolite not to clap at the end of a speech.

The wedding continues on as normal.


Hypothetical Situation #2 - the exact same thing as hypothetical situation #1 with one exception. I stand up and say "Quit being an asshole you are RUINING this beautiful day for this Wonderful couple. Now sit your ass down and don't say shit for the rest of the wedding or you'll have be thrown out. Not one more damn word!"

Then I would talk to him in private later and tell him how inappropriate it was, how he needs to grow up, learn some fucking manners, and get with the program or get LOST!



I've had it with this PC shit, everything has to be politically correct, you can't tell someone they are being an asshole, or that someone is doing something STUPID. You even have to applaud when a performance was horrible. I'm putting an end to this shit once and for all and I'm going to tell everyone if they are being a douche and should shut the hell up. I refuse to applaud for any performances I see that I don't like. I'm going to call em as I see em. And if people don't like it, so fucking what. Of course you won't like it, they won't like it, nobody wants to be told they are doing something STUPID. They just want to ignore it and act like it didn't happen. It's time for Americans to once again have some HONOR in their lives. Or face the SHAME of having been a total dolt and moron. And finally if you can't say anything nice, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL ASSHOLES!

Re: The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
But i dont think you would need to yell at someone with such conviction and verbal abuse. Do you really find that necessary?

Maybe its just your example, but it was a little lame.

Now i totally agree with PC keeping people from discussing real topics as to not offend anyone.

Religion, Politics, Spitituality, Unusual Topics UFO, Conspiracy(Truth), Income, Sexual Orientation, and so on are all NO NO Topics.

Well all these taboo in a way. I find you can learn alot when PC is taken out of the factor. When I meet with my group on Tuesday we dont have much of a holds barr and everything is on the table. You can learn alot that way.

Re: The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
Speaking out got me poisoned, mind controlled, watched by every secret society, and who knows what else.

I wonder what else they have stuck in my skull when I wasn't looking!

Why am I alive..?

I love how government agents and secret society members give me winks and funny smiles. I know you guys fucking watch me like I'm a show from time to time.

They even had someone try to influence me to be more entertaining, told me that if someone did such and such, it would be a movie... I don't care anymore. Showing out and acting a fool(not that I have to try hard) has gotten old...

I don't know what to do with myself.

I think I'll eat crayons so I can poop in funny colors.

Would food dye do the same thing?

I couldn't agree with you more. Nobody fucking seems to CARE anymore!

I was driving down a local road but one I don't go on much, it was what I would consider a medium sized traffic road. A main road though. Now its by no means perfect, but there in the road is a HUGE piece of some kind of a water main cap. It's almost a food wide, and a foot long, and made completely of heavy metal. It's also painted dark. I swerve because I was paying attention, and I miss luckily. Before me there must have been 20-30 other cards who probably also had to swerve who went along the same road not less than a minute or two before me. I could SEE them before I stopped.

So my girlfriend is freaked out, it's dark, and that big hunk of metal would have fucked the car up bigtime, I can't even imagine hitting something so heavy and thick. It might have weighed 70-100 pounds. It was heavier than it looked even, half the size of manhole cover. I think it was some kind of water main cap, but nothing was leaking. no water pouring out of anywhere I could see. Maybe it fell of a truck.

But the point of this story is, I got out of my fucking car and went and picked that shit up! I dragged it to the side of the road and left it there. I was in a hurry somewhere, but I wasn't going to let anyone else hit that shit.

That is a good summary, yes. Sometimes I have my girlfriend get out of the car, if it looks dangerous to run over, but safe enough to move. I have her do this because sometimes we stop in the road, and if someone comes behind me, I want to be able to move the car. So again I am aware of my surroundings, trying to go on about my life, and not going to stop anyone else from going on their lives.

Re: The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
The funny thing is, that often when you speak up you find out that everybody agrees with you anyway. For instance I'll say, "I want all those fucking pakies out of my country." I wait a second and all the sudden everybody is agreeing with me. Or maybe they're too cowardly to speak up and call me an ignorant racist nazi blah, blah, blah.

I've noticed that the more I, and people like me say supposedly unpopular things, the more often others are inclined to screw up the guts to say what they're really thinking. Speaking up is contagious. No doubt about it.

I am speaking to all adults. If you can't see it by the time you are, I dunno, let's say 21. If you are getting drunk before you understand how to speak up and not succumb to really basic fears. Then you are FAILING in life.

I've known since I was a child. I realize it takes others longer, but seriously, 21 years, you are WAY ready. Even if you aren't, that push is still what you need. I always GET help when I need it, and I always GIVE help when I can. I live my life by my philosophies, day to day, DAY TO DAY. I'm doing it, I am being free, and I just feel sorry for the millions out there who are not living theirs. I feel bad for them as well.

And so you can read something into it, and because I am not afraid, I am a Leo.

Hypothetical Situation #1 - Someone is giving a wedding toast, it's HIGHLY inappropriate at one point. The person giving the toast is stopped politely and seated. Now there is a mild clapping of hands because it would be impolite not to clap at the end of a speech.

The wedding continues on as normal.


Hypothetical Situation #2 - the exact same thing as hypothetical situation #1 with one exception. I stand up and say "Quit being an asshole you are RUINING this beautiful day for this Wonderful couple. Now sit your ass down and don't say shit for the rest of the wedding or you'll have be thrown out. Not one more damn word!"

Then I would talk to him in private later and tell him how inappropriate it was, how he needs to grow up, learn some fucking manners, and get with the program or get LOST!



I've had it with this PC shit, everything has to be politically correct, you can't tell someone they are being an asshole, or that someone is doing something STUPID. You even have to applaud when a performance was horrible. I'm putting an end to this shit once and for all and I'm going to tell everyone if they are being a douche and should shut the hell up. I refuse to applaud for any performances I see that I don't like. I'm going to call em as I see em. And if people don't like it, so fucking what. Of course you won't like it, they won't like it, nobody wants to be told they are doing something STUPID. They just want to ignore it and act like it didn't happen. It's time for Americans to once again have some HONOR in their lives. Or face the SHAME of having been a total dolt and moron. And finally if you can't say anything nice, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL ASSHOLES!

Stop bitching like every other god damn sheep, over a stupid hypothetical. The reason no one speaks out, is because they are silenced by the masses on soon as they do.

do you have a wedding on your mind, or a more weightier topic?

Re: The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
The funny thing is, that often when you speak up you find out that everybody agrees with you anyway. For instance I'll say, "I want all those fucking pakies out of my country." I wait a second and all the sudden everybody is agreeing with me. Or maybe they're too cowardly to speak up and call me an ignorant racist nazi blah, blah, blah.

I've noticed that the more I, and people like me say supposedly unpopular things, the more often others are inclined to screw up the guts to say what they're really thinking. Speaking up is contagious. No doubt about it.

I would probably now tell you to shut up and quit being a bigot.

They are too cowardly though, and probably afraid. It is fear that seems to drive people. Fear of speaking up. Fear of backlash. Fear for life, etc.

Re: The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
Everyone is a coward.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23145898


That is simply not true. There are many things I am not, and many things I am, but a coward is NOT one of them. Therefore your "Everyone" statement is simply incorrect. I know there are others, yet we seem to be few and far between.


For example, recently in our state there was a guy who got convicted for child abuse, he put his two kids in a bathtub with SCALDING HOT WATER! SHIT Right? He was not guilty of the torture charge, but still got maybe 15 years? This douche, at the reading of the guilty verdict, is crying and whimpering and his chin won't stop bouncing. I swear ya almost feel sorry for the guy, until you realize he gave 2 of his kids 3rd degree burns all over their bodies.

Now this guy, is a coward. First he does something so horrible I personally want to kick his ass. Then he's crying at his trial, like, "How could this happen to me? I can't believe it!" Well fucking BELIEVE it buddy, you BURNED your children and almost killed them. No mistake here, this wasn't a small accident, this was on purpose. Did you think it would be fun? That they would die and you could say it was an accident? I can't even FATHOM what went through this guys brain, and that is the point. He obviously wasn't thinking and resorted to some sort of psychopathic possibly animalistic behavior. And then at his trial he's sobbing like a child. Just pathetic, seriously. What a piece of shit.


Here I found a link from a paper around there.

You do realize the same folks that clapped for the lame performance and said nothing during the inappropriate toast will use their pent up anger to demonize you as though your outspokenness is many degrees worse than the offense itself. Seen it and experienced too many times.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27240475


Yes I ABSOLUTELY realize that. But I must take it, and deal with it. It is no longer my problem that these people are so brainwashed and stupid. If they can't understand my reasoning, if they have no honor or ethics themselves, fuck em. No longer my problem. That is my declaration.

I am going to tell a lot more people, a lot more often, that they are not my problem. Not if they are going to continue to act as they do, treat myself and others so disrespectful, and think they are the center of the whole damn UNIVERSE!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39969021


I hear ya big time. Like you, I am direct and don't mince words and will confront a wrong in a heartbeat, hence the phrase, "stand up guy". That being said I've been stabbed in the back and hanged by the 'silent pc's' so many times that I reached a place of asking myself a question when feeling the need to 'stand up' ...do I need to be the messenger here? Do they not see the same wrong I do and if not why not?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27240475


You're my kind of people! Live anywhere near Michigan??
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 39969021


No doubt.

Lol, I live in probably the worst, most out of place, state/region to be a stand up guy; NE Atlanta / the south - 40 years, where politeness is so thick you can spend a lifetime thinking you know someone only to realize they were "just being polite" while you extricate the knife from your back.

Don't get me wrong, some folks are real and their kindness is real. But most will smile and throw your ass under the bus if they see the majority not agreeing with you (truth by popularity). But I suppose that's human nature...with a smile in the south.

Re: The Ultimate #1 problem with society. Nobody speaks up!
everyone speaks but nobody acts

too much fear of losing their precious system/matrix/attachments/possessions/....

why they don't fear the abyss and selling out children's souls i'll never know
 Quoting: Xeno00000


I've been thinking about what I would do if I was in charge. My conclusion is that no matter what I did, nothing would significantly change. I'm not Jesus or anything, best I could do would be to conquer the world.

That's never been done before..

If it has, they don't advertise it. It's smart.
