That's funny, I never said anyone was lazy. I said that we all have lazy tendencies and that's a fact. For example, if a person works at their job for however many years and builds up a couple of weeks vacation and they take that vacation. At the end of the vacation the person says "Man, I don't want to go back to work". Why do you think that is? What do you think would happen if the person were allowed to take a 5 year paid vacation? How ready do you think that person would be to go back to work after 5 years? Why do you think jobs with the most paid time off are the most attractive? Why do you think jobs that give perks that their employees don't have to pay for out of their salary are the most sought after? Why do those jobs advertise those perks and not how satisfying the work is? People have to work at not being lazy. The more you work at it the easier it is to not be lazy. The less you work at it, the more apt a person is to be lazy. It may not fit your "It's not your fault your life didn't turn out so great" liberal way of thinking but that's the way it is. Your post simply twisted my words to demonize me and make people see the quote in a way you want them to see it and not the way it was actually typed. Don't worry, I expect it.
I'm not slamming you but, I think that by you're being pretty much self-employed you might not have a insiders knowledge into the work ethic of most blue collar workers.

My experience, covering over forty years in the workplace, most work hard and then play hard when off and take pride in providing a decent living for their families. Sure there's always going to be slackers, they exist in every profession, in every trade.

Seldom are slackers well thought of, seldom do they gain the confidence of of the hard working majority....that's why so many of them worm their way into lower management, they are the stooges that offset their laziness by becoming sycophants.

I agree with this voice. Lots of us are talking like we're going to war and need to arm ourselves as if in Afghan; we're sounding like blowhards who weren't gutsy enough to head to Afghan with those who truly are brave. All this endless BS about absolutely NEEDING hi-cap mags just in case 35 Narco Cartel thugs are banging on our doors, and what if we get in a protracted gun battle with three thugs out on the streets and we've only got four 10-rd clips? What will we do? Well, we might stop watching those damned warfare, assault and attack video games, that's the first thing. The second is to carry for defensive purposes only, quit talking like freelance soldiers and do everything possible always to avoid or exit scenarios that either don't look or feel right. The best shot you could possibly take is the one you never have to take. I carry a 10-rd 9mm because it's an easy carry, has never malfunctioned on any of the first 1000 rounds, and it cleans easily. Sometimes I'll carry something far more powerful. I practice a lot; ammo is expensive. I don't leave home with an attitude nor do I look for confrontation of any sort; I'll walk away first, but if it should suddenly come my way ... that's why I'm licensed.
"All this endless BS about absolutely NEEDING hi-cap mags just in case......"
....is our individual choice.

"I carry a 10-rd 9mm because it's an easy carry, has never malfunctioned on any of the first 1000 rounds, and it cleans easily. Sometimes I'll carry something far more powerful."
Good for you! You made YOUR choice for YOUR reasons. That's called FREEDOM.

<quoted text>if your a responsible loving parent your going to do those things anyways, do you even know what head start is? i think not. The Head Start Program is a program of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. The program's services and resources are designed to foster stable family relationships, enhance children’s physical and emotional well-being, and establish an environment to develop strong cognitive skills. that is not considered brainwashing as perfect examples have been illustrated by fox news so by all means feel free to watch that joke of a news channel if you wish to be brainwashed. if you do not wish to have your kids or grandkids brainwashed then by all means HOMESCHOOL them as well. if headstart is not good enough for your child then no public education should be, and i would rather not pay for someone who thinks the way you do than have their kids go to public schools;which yours probably did, and then complain about the services and come up with conspiracies that if your kid goes to a public school then they are being brainwashed. before you think the government is against you why don't you actually learn how it works and how much it has probably HELPED you, your family, and friends OUT, instead of comming up with wild conspiracies and using thoughtless fearmongoring to express and impose your beliefs and opinion, despite the facts, onto others with no reliable information to support your thesis.
"The Head Start Program is a program of the United States Department of Health and Human Services that provides comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families."
Thank you for telling me about what the Head Start Program is. It wasn't necessary though, as I am fully aware of what it is.

Tell me, do you really think people need a government program to teach people how to raise their kids properly if they are poor? Is there a problem with the elderly people who grew up poor and never had this program at their disposal?

Do you cheer when you walk into a bathroom and see the poster on the wall that explains in detail the proper way to wash your hands, with a phone number to call at the bottom if you don't fully understand?

BTW, I hardly ever watch Fox News. I saw nothing on that channel about this program. I will always maintain the best upbringing any child can have is Mommy at home teaching and nurturing; not throwing kids at strangers for half a day.

If I had kids, they would have likely been homeschooled. Though I went to a public school, my Mom stayed home with her children throughout the years. We never went to any programs as babies and we turned out fine.

"Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does Not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes." yah it's in there alright about number 16 out of 23 executive orders given by the president and proves just how truely ignorant you are. and i'm tired of hearing about this giving into the debt ceiling BS. we raised the debt ceiling 18 times under Reagan and 7 times under bush, so why is there all of a sudden this huge dissagreement about paying for laws that were enacted the PRIOR year? it is because people like you and the republican held house that believe the same BS that Mcveigh did and commiting treason in the process. and you really should comprehend a little better. 1. we as a nation got ourself into this debt so we have to pull together and get out not by putting it on one person 2. the law says assault weapons and will keep any prexisting guns before the enacted law so get it straight, it says nothing about shotguns, bolt action, lever action, or handguns. so still if some ignorant ass wants to come in my home i will gladly ablige him or her with a 44. mag and make it very clear they are not welcome. lol and i love how you changed it to know nothing instead of don't know nothing. i must give you cudos on not making the same ignorant mistake of misinterpreting the meaning of my post name. but other than that you are just as ignorant as every redneck hillbilly inbread word that comes out of that low life hole you call a mouth.
"we as a nation got ourself into this debt so we have to pull together and get out not by putting it on one person"

No, >WE< did NOT get ourselves into this mess!
THEY got THEMSELVES into a mess with THEIR spending!

I live on a tight budget and must sacrifice because I can't spend money I don't yet have. I will NOT pay for someone else to be irresponsible when I am expected to be.

And I am against ANY politician who votes to raise the debt ceiling.

WHAT A JOKE! if a doctor determines you have cancer and tells you, you inturn do not look at the doctor and say no i do not.well in all reality you don't have to give charles manson a gun and have him break into someones house because he will just brainwash people into doing it for him since he was not directly involved in the murdering of anyone. and let me tell you unless your preparing to be invaded by terrorist or the mob or a rival gang you have NO use for ANY firearm that holds more than 7 rounds. and just WHAT lady are you talking about and be specific, and i bet that same lady did not use an assault rifle to get the job done either did she? yah i know that you Tim Mcveigh guys would love to start another civil war but i'm hear to tell you that your crazy ignorance is not going unnoticed and will soon be put into law against such crazy thinking.
WELL REGULATED MILITIA means regulated by the PEOPLE, NOT the government. The second amendment was written to prevent the government from having too much power! Read the words of our founders on this issue!

"unless your preparing to be invaded by terrorist or the mob or a rival gang you have NO use for ANY firearm that holds more than 7 rounds."
I'll bet you said, "unless your preparing to be invaded by terrorist or the mob or a rival gang you have NO use for ANY firearm that holds more than 10 rounds" when they made the limit 10, didn't you! LMAO
Talk about being easily brainwashed!!!! I hope you have no contact with Charlie!!

BTW, I don't have any clue WHAT the scenerio could be, but it's my gun, my clip, my choice!! Even if the clip holds 10,000 rounds, nobody has anything to worry about if they aren't a threat to me.

"WHAT lady are you talking about?"
The lady in this story. Notice the guy didn't steal anything and leave....he looked for the woman and her two daughters......WHY? Note also, she ran out of bullets....
What if there had been two men?

And you want us to have fewer bullets? Get screwed!

But the man eventually found the family.

"The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver," Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.

The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

Now We Know – It’s the Door!



Thankfully someone has tracked down the cause of this terrible malady. Whew! What a relief to learn this.

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was? Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.


Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.

It's not aging, it's the damn door!


Thank goodness for studies like this!

You "demonize" yourself with your own words.
Only a liberal would see it that way. You will slant any truth and distort any information to fit into your ideological box of thinking. Like I have said before and you continue to prove over and over, there is no level liberals won't stoop to get what they want. To get one class of people to hate another for no better reason than to gain power and push an agenda that, if displayed out in the open, would never be accepted. Now you were just simply displaying a characteristic of this tactic. You weren't trying to get anyone to hate anyone. You were just trying to make yourself feel better about your obviously wrong position. If that makes you happy then go right ahead. It doesn't change the fact that the situation is what it is reguardless of how you twist words and intentions. You can take heart that there are many who have been manipulated by these tactics into thinking they share your views as was shown on November 6, 2012.

Who did I call lazy? I didn't say there was no such thing as laziness. I said I didn't call anyone lazy, and I didn't. If I were to say "that Barney guy is lazy", that would qualify as calling someone lazy. You are plenty adept enough at the English language to know the difference but that liberal ideology keeps getting in the way. It causes you put words in someones mouth or expanding the meaning of their comments to mean something not intended in order to demonize someone. That is a fault you would do well to get rid of. I must warn you that it will mean droping your liberal ideology. You are so infected with liberalism that I'm not sure you could survive the cleansing.

Redd, I was simply saying that everyone has lazy tendencies that must consciously be suppressed by a decision to work hard. That includes you, me, and everyone else who has ever lived. Of course those that seem to work all the time and are willing to help anytime someone has a project to do are the ones that are labled work-a-holics and go-getters. The lazy tendency is still in them but they have simply made a decision not to let it take hold. Much like a runner gets addicted to running but it takes a tremendous amount of hard work and discipline to get to that point. It's in all of us if we just decide that we want to be runners and are willing to make time and keep pushing forward through the pain. Please understand that I was not calling anyone lazy but rather speaking towards tendencies and what it takes to replace tendencies instead of letting them take root.

It's an opinion of years of observation and life experience. You do realize that the majority of results of scientific studies are directly in line with preformed opinions of those funding the study don't you? Those who fund studies mostly have a result they believe to be true. They set out to find "scientists" to perform the study to get each scientits hypothesis of the outcome. Rarely does the scientific grant go to those scientist's whos hypothesis is contradictory to what the person or group that is funding the study already believes. I'm not saying it's rigged but the scientist know who they are working for and who is paying the bills. Whether you admit it or not you realize what I'm saying is true.
