Things that bug me Rant!!! (join in the fun)

By Ciderick ·
Ok, after just being shouted down in the street by a preacher who I told 'I am not interested', I am now going to off-load on you guys (& gals) because even if you disagree with me you are intelligent & thought provoking...

Here goes...

1) Religion.

I do not care what religion you are, I have already decided for my self which one I am following & I do not ram it down your throat now do I? please don't ram yours down my throat.

2) Intelligent Design.

Ummm... people, this is not the dark ages, wake up & smell the primordal ooze.

3) Abortion

A woman has a right to decide on her own body, I really have nothing to do with that - However, I would like to see a decrease in 'vanity' abortions - I don't care about your figure or any stretchmarks that may appear - neither should your other half - & incidentally, if you are working on building a career then you should have been more careful (& if you are really serious then you can work out a way to have both).

4) Drugs

Yes please

5) Same sex marriage

If you love someone then why the **** not???

6) Divorce

All good with me. If you have fallen out of love with someone then why suffer?

7) Iraq/George Bush etc etc...

George is a moron, war is wrong. But you voted him in, get over it.


Just plain wrong - we're all equals here.

9) Racism

Same thing.

10) Smoking in public places.

Give bars & restaurants a choice. I am sure there are some who make money out of the non-smoking thing & equally sure there are some who are loosing money & would like to let people smoke.

Ok, that covers it for now - thank you for letting me vent a little steam. I look forward to seeing your replies - (Jardinier, that means you too - I actually like your reasoning even if I disagree with some of the things you say. Maxwell, you're invited too)

You HAVE been subdued

by M_a_r_k In reply to too true

Wierd things is an understatement! LOL If that was the best rant you could come up with--you being the rant mistress that you are--then I won't be surprised if it snows in Texas in July. Let's see if my laughing emoticon is back yet... :^O

Wow - I think I agree with all of it

I agree with you

2) Alien origins. There is more evidence for that than there is for evolution. If humans had been designed "intelligently," we would have found better things to do with our time than repeatedly killing each other off in wars.

3) Abortion. My views exactly.

Sexism. Men and women are different physiologically and psychologically. There should be equal respect, but not identical roles.

9) Racism.

10) If you don't like it, don't go there.

And a few of my own:

1) Unsolicited advice -- especially from people who know nothing about me.

2) Being told I am wrong when I am know I am right -- I am not talking about opinions here, but events -- being told: "Such-and-such happened" when I know jolly well that it didn't.

3) Gross stupidity as in trying to have a conversation with someone who is incapable of rational thought.

I'm with you on alot of those.

Speed cameras - we actually did away with photo radar - I witnessed lots of near accidents when people hit the brakes too hard when seeing a van on the side of the road. Speed doesn't kill,its the sudden stop at the end that gets ya.

I just came back from Birmingham Alabama, I liked the people, didn't see much of the city but it seemed green and pleasant.

I HATE COVERS by stupid young bands of classic songs that I cherish. Darned few of them are an improvement, or even an alterative take.

Muzak is audio wallpaper and not the nice wallpaper but the cheap cover up your mistakes kind....

Have you read "Eats, shoots and leaves"?

In a similar vein.

Remakes of classic films, and films that are gross misrepresentations of the books they claim to be based upon.

I liked Sahara.

by X-MarCap In reply to In a similar vein.

But I loved the Clive Cusler book...

Dirk Pitt Fan #13...

I liked the movie but....

by JamesRL In reply to I liked Sahara.

I bought it knowing that it was not the book(haven't read any Cussler in years). I bought it knowing it wasn't Oscar material. What I thought it might be is an adventure my 12 year old boy would enjoy, and voila, it was bang on.

Suspend your Disbelief and enjoy an extra Cheezy one.

I am not talking Pizza, but it is almost a buddy picture of Road Picture quality...

Don't get me wrong, the Road pictures were CAMP, low brow humor, mediocre writing and laced with sidebars,cutaways, breaking the third wall etc. but these pictures were carried by the personalities of the stars, in particular Hope & Crosby...

McConaughey may do another one, but I suspect that it isn't this week... My kid's 21,20,9,7 watch it almost weekly... It made my daughter read the book. the deleted scenes really make it a better movie...
