…for suggesting your theory of planetary destruction is far fetched?? If you say so!
Haha are you ignorant?
Oh really? Then why are we worried about age caps if we’re all going to be dead soon??
Soon the planet will be unhabitable for humans because of radiation.

It's an observation, he clearly doesn't know much about the world.( He asked the definition of black flag and he is on ATS? Is this a social media site?)edit on th2014-04-10T11:53:03-05:0020143030-05:00Thu, 10 Apr 2014 11:53:03 -05002014p11 by ScottProphhit because: (no reason given)
A black flag is and I'm quoting here;
covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.
He asked the definition of black flag and he is on ATS?
Anyway, I'm probably wrong about the age thing, but I dont think people should be able to have political seats for so long if they aren't improving our lives.

some of the most innovative ideas the world has ever seen comes from the minds of people older than 35.
young folks think that they know every thing, which they don't. knowledge and wisdom come with age. i would not want someone young that has not been alive long enough to have seen and experienced enough of life to make decisions on laws that effect the well being of a entire country.
sure there have been some mature younger people, those have been the exception not the rule. just let me ask you why do you think the military wants young people, and it's not just because that they are more physically fit, it's because their minds are more easily manipulated than older peoples minds. this is a quote from my drill instructor when i was in the Corps. " you will be amazed at what a 17 year old can do, with a M16 in their hands" and how you can motivate them into doing it". that has stuck with me all my life, mainly for the fact i was 17 when i heard it. i didn't fully understand it until i was well into my thirty's. i knew what he meant by training them to fire and attack, but the fact that someone that young is more easily brain washed, or should i say fooled into a ideology. now don't misunderstand, i think every young person older than 21 should serve, that gives them a little time to grow and mature.
no one should be allowed to serve in a public office, military, or anything thing that has to do with the serving the public,in a authoritative type position until there is some sort of maturity test to see if they are ready to hold that kind of postilion, and are well past the age of 30.
it's true that young people are the future, but if they are going making a bunch of dumb a@@ laws what does good does that do. of course it would be compounded more with all of the lobbyist that are throwing money at them.
another thing, have you ever watched those worlds dumbest videos, the majority of the people in them are younger than 30. ever wonder why.
i know that i didn't become shorter than ten foot tall, and vulnerable to bullets, until i was almost 30.

You dont understand Buddhism, it's a philosophy not a religion! That's probably the only misunderstanding you'll probably have had. You can be Christian and follow the path of Buddha.
I can see how I've spoke ignorantly, I just dont see many other solutions being thrown around.. I also agree there shouldn't be an age gap like how I first mentioned, I just want politicians that actually care about the people and don't have their own agendas.
