Ken asks…

do you think that people who marry young are scared to make a life for themselves on their own?

do you think people who marry young are happier being married than those who had a life before getting married?

admin answers:

In some cases I think they didn’t learn the value of having their own identity….and they are codependent…..then they complain because of jealousy issues, guilt trips, etc.

Mandy asks…

What do you think about those two young brothers?. Who have been jailed today for torturing and nearly?

Killing .two other boys
and what could be done to stop it happening again?…

admin answers:

I think it is tragic that 10 and 11 year old boys have been so abused by their parents and so ignored by society that they think it’s okay to torture other children.

What could be done to stop it happening again? How about parents taking responsibility for their children? How about society taking responsibility for dysfunctional families? How about people thinking more about helping their neighbour than helping themselves to money?

It is my considered opinion that our society cares more about money and material possessions than it does about people. Then ‘society’ throws up its collective hands in despair when poor people fail to meet up with the expectations of those better off.

I’m not saying money is the solution – I’m saying our materialistic society is the problem.

I pray to God with all of my heart that those two brothers will come to know the love of God, and that their victims will be healed.

Edit: Thumbs up to ‘in the truth’ for pointing out how those boys were abused and neglected by their parents. Also, they did not commit murder – they tortured two other boys for 90 minutes and showed no remorse afterwards. The real tragedy is that social services, the police and the courts failed to take action to prevent this from happening – and this has happened many times in Britain. Vulnerable children should be protected from sadistic and evil parents, and those parents should be held accountable for their neglect.

Your Questions About If You Choose To Pull The Trigger

September 11, 2012

Lisa asks…

This article from the Dallas Morning News about “DIVERSITY” was in the paper a few days ago. What do you think

By Trey Garrison / Special Contributor

When I made the hard decision to forgo buying a house in Dallas (and the easy decision to avoid the Potemkin village of DISD), I knew I was gonna get it. The thing is, I really wanted to live in Dallas, but we just couldn’t do it. So we chose Plano.

Once we pulled the trigger, the judgments came a-flyin’. Mainly it was from friends who are, well, urban yokels. You know the kind – hipper-than-thou provincialists, for whom where you reside in relation to a municipal taxing boundary defines you. (Fine, guys, you take the trendy bars and the home invasions; I’ll take the bland corporate sports grill and the gated community. We’ll split the teen heroin problem.) This was fine. Friends tease you like that. But then I started getting comments from readers at one of my other publications about “diversity,” whatever that means. Apparently, in choosing a house in one of the top school districts in the country, in a suburb where the poverty rate is low and the median income is high, I was guilty of the high crime of white flight.

My humbled, guilty reaction consisted of two words: “So what?”

I mean, what the heck does diversity mean? Some of my new neighbors in Plano include people from Thailand, Armenia, India, Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Colombia and the Ukraine, but apparently that doesn’t count. And when a school is 85 percent white, it’s not diverse, but when it’s 85 percent Hispanic, it is?

I was scolded that my daughter, by being in a Plano school, would be sheltered from – nay, ill-equipped for – life in the real world.

Well, yeah. Probably. The real world is a lot bigger than Dallas, bigger than (Sam Houston, forgive me) Texas, and bigger than the United States. The majority of the real world is dirty, violent, poor and absent indoor plumbing and two-ply toilet paper. More than half the world’s people live on something like $1 a day.

I don’t think attending Woodrow Wilson High equips you any better for that kind of outdoorsy, back-to-nature lifestyle than Plano West, but I admit I don’t know much about Woodrow’s elective courses. I want a school that will prepare her for living in a professional, high-paying world so Daddy won’t have to pound out columns in his dotage.

I was also told, most oddly, that by subjecting my kid to suburban life and suburban schools, she’d get no exposure to people from other cultures. That’s when it got silly. So I’d harrumph in my best Ted Baxter voice that’s crazy – why, the lady who does her nails is Vietnamese, and our lawn guy is a Mexican from Costa Rica or Panama or someplace.

Seriously, if the only exposure to other people your kid gets is when she’s sitting in a place where you move about like cattle at the sound of a bell and have to ask permission to go to the bathroom (i.e. school), what kind of sheltered life are you giving your kid?

It’s weird. We’ve made “diversity” into some kind of totem, an end to itself, and we haven’t even defined what it is. Do I learn more about a different perspective chatting with my Ukrainian neighbor (whom the census counts as white), or from a guy brought up five miles from me who happens to be black?

And I’m not entirely sold that diversity is automatically good.

Look, diversity is great when it comes to nightclubs, workplaces, cultural experiences, restaurants and all that. But I don’t want diversity in my neighborhood.

Now, put down the pitchfork. I don’t mean the superficial diversity of skin color. I mean diversity of values. That’s what I don’t want in my neighborhood, or my neighborhood school.

I want uniformly boring neighbors with uniformly boring, middle-class values who spend Saturdays working on their lawns and whose kids know to stay off mine. I want neighbors with Home Depot on speed dial. That’s how I choose to live. Your mileage may vary.

And isn’t that diversity, too?

admin answers:

This is one of the things that concerns me. We are the United States of America, not the Diversified States of America. Dearborn Michigan has become the middle East of America. Garden Grove, Ca. Is the Vietnam of America. What has happened to assimilation. “Press one for Spanish”, “Your child needs to learn to speak Spanish”. The first thing that units a country is a common language. The root word of “Diversity” is “Divide”

Nancy asks…

If you were at gun point and had to choose between 2 men…..?

One good on the inside, good heart, good person, would truly love you until the end of time, but mean on the outside, afraid of people, skeptical, like Oscar the grouch because he fears getting close to people, the other good on the outside, nice looking, good personality, fun to be with, exciting, yet on the inside he’s rotten, he decieves, cheats, lies. The grouch is difficult to get along with but means well, the nice guy is easy to get along with with selfish horrible intentions. Which would you choose. You can’t say neither because you‘re at gunpoint, and if you do, they’re going to pull the trigger.
One more thing, you‘re truly in love with Oscar the grouch, the other one truly loves you, the best way he knows how, you could probably have a half ass decent life with him because at least he’d be nice to you. Both of them would marry you, who do you choose? Oscar would be mean to your friends and family forever, the other would look like a shining star to them, but would probably be screwing other women within the next ten years.
And one more thing, for weird whoever, no one is being held at gunpoint to answer this question. If you don’t like the question, go away!!!!!

admin answers:

Depends… The one i would pick is the one that i love and loves me bak.

But since one loves me and the other one i love…

Personally… I think it is hard to force loving someone jus because they love you. And its easy to love someone you really love.

However… In the long run… If u pick the one you love and they don’t love you… Its even harder and hurts.

So i’d say… The one the love me !

Your Questions About If You Choose To Take This Mission

Michael asks…

Help find a news article for American Government?

So I’m doing an American Government assignment on foreign affairs. Just a brief description of what I’ve done so far: I’ve chosen the Department of Defense and the mission I chose was “protect the security of our country”. Three actions the department has taken to accomplish the mission of protecting the security of the country are container security initiative, criminal investigation, and small vessel security.

The next part is to choose one of these three actions and find a news article about it. I’ve been having trouble with this seeing as how i don’t pay attention to the news very often. So if any of you could help me find a news article about any of those three actions, it would be greatly appreciated. thank you!

Your opinion on the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 controversial, “No Russian” mission.?

Call of duty modern warfare 2 hit stores last night, and already they have drawn a lot of fire from the media for the controversial, “No Russian” mission. before this mission, you are given the choice of playing it or not due to graphic images. if you choose to play this mission, you are placed in the shoes of a terrorist. When the mission starts, you step off of an elevator with 6 other terrorists and open fire in an airport at hundreds of innocent civillians. if you wish, the youtube link is at the end of this page. This scene is being scrutinized as “innapropriate, and highly controversial” given today’s situation in afghanistan.
However, this may be overdramatized. while the scene itself may be innapropriate, you must take these factors into your consideration-
1. This scene is no different than if World at War came out in world war 2 and people would respond the same due to the N@zi’s and the n@zi zombie game.
2. There are other games such as grand theft auto that may possibly be worse than this one scene.
3. the player is given the option to refrain from playing this scene.

knowing this, please give your opinion on whether or not you think this game is being blown out of proportion, or rightly criticized.

this is the youtube link. THERE IS GRAPHIC CONTENT
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6m6XXcnDJCI

admin answers:

I think its a great idea, now let me explain b4 you call me a cruel bastard and a apathetic jerk.
1. This scene is NO worse than the “Miracle at St. Anna” where you see a group of jews getting slaughtered, yet that movie was providing the truth.The truth that WW2 killed 50 MILLION PEOPLE! Bringing me to my second fact.
2. Terriorism IS NOT fake, this STUFF happens! But how many times do we hear about this and just “go on” with our live, satisfied that it wasn’t here? It’s time we got shocked into how bad it is. This really brings out how horrible it is, to everyone. Do I agree with some of its material? No. BUT like you said its no worse than GTA where you can lock someone in a hospital and slaughter everyone in just inhumane ways, and if you pay attention to the scene, it shows you that your actually undercover. “A few must be sacrificed, so the majority may live.”
As horrible as it sounds, its true.

Richard asks…

Confused on what college course to take up?

Confused on what college course to take up?
I’m really confused on what course to take up next semester. I have to choose between Medical Technology (science) & accounting (mathematics/ business). Both are my own choices.

I’ve always wanted to take up a business course, but since Accountancy is the only one that has board exam, that’s what my parents recommended to me, which is fine. However, I just realized that Iwanna take up a pre-med course too coz I wanna be in a medical mission someday & cure the poor, sick people from different parts of the world like Kenya.

I really don’t know what to choose. This thing bothers me every day. I need advice.

& if you were in my position, which do you think you would choose & why?

BTW, you have to dissect cadavers if you’re going to take up med. Tech. So, it’s like Numbers vs. Zombies.

admin answers:

Definitely the medical course! Prepare yourself for a recession proof career!

Good day you fine people…

I have a mission (which I’ve chosen to accept!) that mission is to consult you, yes you, the general public for information, advice and feedback on a list of potential band names..

..Bit of background – We’re a 3 piece band from the UK (although we make more noise than a 3 piece should!), we’re fairly new but have first gig booked. Genre is rock/grunge/punk, kind of Nirvana meets Biffy Clyro with a bit of Fu Manchu thrown into the pot for good measure!!..

So we would be most gracious if you were to chose your top 3 names from the list below.. Thanks for your time in advance and watch this space

Zen Brain
Binaural Beats
Sona
Makari Pilots
Alien Warehouse
Versus
Tides of Tomorrow
Folding Stars
Youth Overrided
Out of Exile

Turn Zen Brain into Zen Brian and you’ll be onto something.

Jenny asks…

Howcan I get back together with my love?

OK, here is your mission, if you choose to accept it… My girlfriend of 3 years and 8 months told me last week that she had to make some important decisions in her life, and needed her independance. We were both very upset about it. After a long conversation, we decided to take a break for a while, and I put everything in her control; she doesn’t want to make the wrong decision. The problem is that this is killing me, more than I ever thought it would. I call her every other day, and she will talk… but not about us and will get mad if I mention it. I really want this to work out; I’ve never wanted anything more. What should I do to show her this? I think she just wants to feel independance, and is not seeking another boyfriend at this time… now what?

admin answers:

Well friend, all you can do for now is respect her wishes. I know it is hard to do, but sometimes after being with someone for so long, we loose sight of being an individual. Your girl might just be going through a phase, that she sorta lost herself along the way. Give her her alone time, and stop calling her so often. She needs time to miss you, and if you are always there it will seem as if nothing has changed. If you truly love her, summon up the courage to let her be. Let your girl call you, and allow her to bring up the issue of getting back together. If she gets angry because you are pushing her, then by all means do not discuss it, follow her lead on this one. Best wishes.
