The world really isn't as bad as you think it is old chap.

Switch off Fox, stop reading media that sells itself with fear, and you'll be much more relaxed.

Yeah. We are living in the longest period of sustained peace in all of human history. People act way too melodramatic about issues facing them today than they should be. They just lack historical context though.

Would like to but they say to much media and reading will make me go blind, sometimes it not the media or reading its all the advertisement, selling you drugs with side effects a mile long (kilometer) or Automotive insurance commercials telling me I can save if I bundle, or this Medical Insurance commercial telling me why I should choose them, or life insurance commercials, even those are getting just as bad as the rest of the media

a reply to: Krazysh0tThey just lack historical context though. that's another item, lets get ride of the confederate flag, take down statues, get ride of Columbus day, why are we trying to erase the history of this country to make the few feel good about themselves? I commend the German people for they did not destroy all the concentration camps, instead they kept them as a reminder, for all that perished there, been to a few while I was there, you would never known they were there driving by one but they are. And Americans find the flag offensive

I have gotten to the point in my life that even turning on the TV , computer or radio is disappointing, with all the news and BS going on in this country on who is to blame or who can we blame, what wrong with these people today?


In a word politics.

A cancer that has rotted out the soul of this nation, and the world IF it ever had one.

People have always been screwed up.

Pick any era of world history and you will find numerous examples.

I'd reason that the people defending leaving those monuments up lack the real historical context. Let's start with an easy one. Exactly why do you think Christopher Columbus is important to US history and should be remembered with a national holiday?

to answer that without looking anything up he was an adventure trying to discover the new world, even though everyone thought it to be flat, for an Italian, his own country and Spain did not support him though the English did, he did not believe the world was flat and wanted to discover a new world which he did, may of not been the first but his records and returned opened the new world up for exploration so he is the first on record, he believed in something and if not for his conviction to do so Columbus day may be name after someone else that Discovered the new world, its no different than having Martin Luther King day, he was an explore in civil rights and he as well did not give up.

Most of those things you just said are historical lies. Columbus was never trying to prove the world round. He was actually well to do and went with Spain because Italy thought him a lunatic. Plus, even if he was trying to prove the world round, he never succeeded since he found the West Indies instead.

he believed in something and if not for his conviction to do so Columbus day may be name after someone else that Discovered the new world

He believed in making money. That's it. How else do you explain how he was a slaver? Amerigo Vespucci was a FAR more interesting explorer and for having had two whole continents named after him it is unfair he should only be a footnote in history books these days.

The only people who should be honoring Columbus are the Spanish for jump starting Spanish colonialism.

like I said I was going off of memory from a long time ago, and yes Columbus was trying to find a way to the indies by going west but never made it since he founded the Americas instead.

This is the problem that everyone see "slaver" but correct me if I am wrong because I did not live back then, but wasn't most of the worlds population Slavers at one time or another, it did matter what skin color you had, it did not matter what continent you were from, it was just the way things were, its history that none of us should forget or be blamed for since it has been centuries since anyone was a slaver, unless you want to call everyone who has a job working for the man, is that not a form of slaver.

This is the kind of stuff I am talking about the past is the past, its like telling your kids don't touch that hot stove, they learned their lessons the first time and the scar on their hand reminds them of the past, same goes for History and all those that are named in it, we can't erase what has been done but to make sure we don't repeat it again

Right, but he wasn't trying to prove the world round. That is history revisionism. Just want to make sure that is clear.

True, but that doesn't mean we should be honoring them even if it was the norm of their time.

Let's get back to my original point. Now that we have discussed Columbus and identified certain lies about his history and contributions, why is he important to US history? Why can't we instead celebrate Amerigo Day?

Some are well off, living behind gates in affluent communities, nothing bad has ever happened to them. They just don't get how anything can be wrong with the world.


And some are living behind gates in affluent communities and know darn good and well that things are bad for others and don't care because they made sure it was that way. Less competition for them you see. It also makes them feel all superior to make sure there are always little people to feel superior to.

Most of them/us are only one paycheck away from the guy under the overpass.

I think it breeds complacency and whiny behavior.

Naw. The people I'm talking about never have to face that. They have their equity, their principle earning interest, their gas tank is always full, their insurance is paid up so they never have to pay a penny for medical care.

Every problem they might encounter is a 911 phone call away. Angels descend from heaven, sirens blaring, to rescue them, lest they dash their toe against a stone.

I am that guy under the overpass, I know whereof I speak. People should be more grateful for all they have to protect them from the void.

They aren't.

Yeah, well, we have some of that stuff you mention, but in order to have it/build it, we have to compromise ourselves in some other ways. Those weeks where you know you only have a limited amount in the bank so you better hope there aren't any big problems.

But the guys you're really steamed at are the ones who really broker power, not the ignorant and complacent middle who haven't really yet begun to feel the bite.
