So now your stating for the record that this was just some kind of psychology experiment on your part either for your own interests or to enlighten
the dull minded population with your Superior intellect.
I don't have a Superior intellect. I wanted a learning experience by argueing a certain point of view, whether I agreed with it or not. And I
learned a lot. No Dull minded posts here. Also, not too many people who truly believe Americans are what makes America from the bottom up. I wanted
to instill just a seed of an idea in a few peoples heads that this country is "We the people ...", or we could just toss out our first official
document of our nation.
1. if that were true and i doubt it very much that is trollish behavior and frowned upon i believe.
I do not think it is frowned upon to argue a point of view with substantiated facts. If people at ATS did not have a personal agenda, then ATS
probably wouldn't need to exist.
2.as you`ve stated in this thread you have learned some great lessons from people with LOW IQ i can only assume you dont know the difference between
intelligence and education.
The people with low IQs I was reffering to were grown adults who have never learned to speak, write, walk, or be potty trained. The people with low
IQs I was reffering to were the adult men and women that I used to change their diapers for them, and slush their wastes by hand out of cloth diapers.
You know, the children that families tuck away at homes, or give to the state to care for, and never visit (at least the 10 years I worked with
3.I believe because you would be the type of person to guard yourself so strongly from being wrong because of your obvious extensive education and
pride of it that you would find it nearly imposable to admit that you are wrong.
I have made many mistakes, and I'll make many more. The worst mistake I made today was posting an email I recieved as a new thread, which got moved,
and then 95% of the content edited out. I didn't mean any harm, but obviously made a mistake because the mods changed it twice. My formal education
is somewhat minimal. I have an associates degree in fire sciences, and some basic prerequisites for nursing finished, along with a few electives.
Not a "higher" education, just an average joe.
Question-has it ever occurred to you these dullish minded people you are talking about maybe the majority just want to get on with their lives,they
are not interested in politic`s education conspiracy theories,they simply just want to live their lives with the least amount of outside complications
as possible,they just would rather live in the ignorance that their Gov has their best interests and the worlds for that matter at heart,and if they
dont believe that they probably cant be bothered worrying about it because nobody wants to listen any way.
Yes, it has occurred to me, and I think if they're bubble is so small, then they are inept and have no inclination of looking at the big picture,
which essentially is why so many Americans are in the position they are in. Empathy begins by being able to see beyond what is most self serving, and
actually care for something more so than just their lives. If all they focus on for a period of time is their lives, it becomes habit, it becomes
routine, it becomes their life to think of only their life, and the lives of those only closest to them.
These are my thoughts on you and i`m arguably one of these people who you would consider LOW IQ its not i`m uneducated and there`s an example,when IQ
has nothing to do with ones intelligence which is why you have learned some great lessons from them.
If I hadn't learned something from you, I would not have spent so much time reading and contemplating your perspective. If I did not respect you, I
would not still be typing.
I judge the intelligence of a person by his/her ability to just do whats right say what right act right in the right circumstances in every day life.
And, there is nothing wrong with the way you view intelligence. Personally, I view intelligence as the ability to integrate new information and use
I have an IE spell checker and it just corrected about twenty spelling mistakes,not that i`m ashamed not having a proper education just wanted it to
be more easily read.
Everyone has gifts. No one is useless. Thanks for your empathy for the total strangers you knew would have a better reading experience by you
choosing to use your spell check.
If your last post was your first i`d think different of you,but now you say it was your little experiment.The only thing lacking is your abillity to
be true to yourself for your own good and i would rather have not had to express this.
Sorry to have upset you, or taken you a little out of your comfort zone. But, This is the first of over 30 of my threads to make it to page 5, and I
seriously doubt it would have made it to page 2 if my last post was my first. I also would not have had the real arguements. I'm not saying I did
not believe what I was posting entirely, I just chose my words to meet my objectives. I wanted to learn something, and try to deny ignorance.
Have a nice evening, and thank you for your contributions.
