I know a lot of Bernie supporters are upset/disappointed/angry about the way that things have turned out. I know Bernie himself doesn’t support the “Bernie or Bust” movement. It’s stressful. But let me share some advice with you.
Now, I’m a big supporter of education. I believe that the more we know about diverse subjects, the better off we are in our personal lives, the relationships that we hold, and our careers. I’m also a huge fan of learning for fun. Some people collect figurines, some people collect coins, I collect knowledge.
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
– Mark Twain
I’m not sure why this quote was categorized as business, but I liked it. Being on the side of the minority, in any situation, can put you in a tough spot. No one chooses to be an outcast. On the other hand, being a part of a majority is by far the easiest way to go. You won’t get judged as often, and you have more people to back up you opinion. Therefore, when you take the easy path, you have to question whether you are there because that is what you truly believe, or because it was just easier. Don’t be afraid to take the path less traveled, you never know who you will meet along the way. If you’ve ever seen the movie Big Fish, that’s a perfect example of what I’m trying to explain. Not to mention Tim Burton did a fabulous job on it.
Anywho, if you ever find yourself siding with the majority, ask yourself if that’s really what you believe. Sometimes, it will be. But you have to be able to see it from other points of view. If you can’t see what the other side is saying, then how do you really know that your way is whats right?
N is also for not a very long post.
The other day I was watching some of the old videos on a vlog that I enjoy. It’s called Gays of the week. Before you roll your eyes, hear me out.
So I was watching a video and reading some of the comments. Most of the comments were legitimate comments on the video. Then I come across one marked as spam. I usually enjoy reading those because its usually some idiot with a comment like, “wow fags lol.” First of all, I hate the word faggot, or any form of it simply because people don’t use it properly. And how petty is it to go around calling people names? What? Are you in second grade? UGH
Anyway, I like reading the comments marked as spam because I’m amused by the amount of people that will watch a video of an openly gay person and still make obnoxious comments.
So the other day I was watching one of the videos and saw a comment marked as spam. Just like all the other spam comments, I read it anyway. This moron decided to post a quote from the bible IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. It was the one about if a man should lay with another man the way he would lay with a woman blah blah blah…
First, your little quote isn’t going to change anything. Gays aren’t going to see that and be like, “Oh shit! the bible says I shouldn’t! let me go have sex with every woman I see, then god will love me.” No one in the video, and no one else watching the videos give a flying fuck about your bible quote.
Second, gay men don’t lie with men the same way they lie with women, so your quote means absolutely nothing.
Lets face it, because it’s in the bible means nothing to a lot of people. I, and most other people respect that you believe in the bible and take some, if not all of it seriously. All we ask is that you respect that the rest of us don’t have the same beliefs as you.
And on a side note, if heaven is full of the people that tried to push their beliefs on me, than hell it is for me! The people you say are going to hell are more fun anyway..
Okay, so this post wasn’t that short…
