Random subjective observations of what's on my mind

Uncomfortably Numb

Leave a comment

I’ve been asked about my views on the gun control and Disney debates. I think this Mark Twain quote sums it up pretty well:

“Don’t argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”

That’s my way of saying I have better things to do than spend time on what should be non-issues. The gun control debate in the US is about as sane and fact based as the health care debate. Both plagued by strong lobby influences for a status quo. In regards to the Disney debate I simply cannot comprehend, with everything else going on in the world, how anyone can find time to commit to such nonsense. Let alone be upset about it.
