They insist that it's their right and if the other patrons don't like it, they should ignore.... That is until the opposing views pile up, then the hypocrites complain about all the hate. Good blog, Usha!
For a moment there Usha, I thought you were talking about Robert and Peter Putter.
Usha..Just an observation here...I am not too wrapped up into politics all that much.But, I do watch both MSNBC (more Democratic viewpoints) and I do watch Fox (more Republican viewpoints) from time to time....now, I just try to avoid both as much as possible. Anyway, back to my observation. What happen to the Russia scandal? I don't hear much about that anymore. And now, it is about Epstein...or however you spell his name. It just seems like whatever the Democratic viewpoint can dig up...maybe possibly even imagine , they try and throw it to see if it sticks. Now, the Republicans are no better. I remember all the anti-Obama stuff that Fox was throwing at the Democrats....same thing...see if it sticks. The bottom line.....it is all politics. For those of you who don't know what the term politics means, look it up.My 2 pennies anyway.
Reminds me of a pub I used to go to sometimes they'd have live entertainment so I'd meet all my mates there, a lot of the time it was just frequented by football hooligans shouting about there team but when the entertainment was on the place would really fill up with normal people problem was at weekends they had a bartender who was deaf dumb & blind so whenever the football crowd started a fight this bartender would just grab the closest to hand & chuck them out, not realising, due to his impairments, that he was actually chucking out the entertainers we all went to see for a while we all went to the pub across the road where you could watch the hooligans from a safe distance but of course that got to be really boring so we all went off to a pub on the other side of town & lived happily ever after You may need to clean the windows on this blog quite often, people looking through them tend leave marks when they view but on the plus side I doubt you'll need to wash the floors much as not many will actually enter
Before this gets written in stone you need to clarify that this is your opinion onlyBiff commuted suicide by challenging the mods Harbal was a sarcastic pratDon't raise either of them to sainthood And that's just my opinion
Some people go to the internet to argue and fight. They don't care much what they fight about as long as it is going. This is how they vent frustrations from everyday problems. It's a sort of a stress relief. The boss made you angry? So, let's go to some FB group or a forum and fight with strangers over anything. Let's "show them" the way you must never do to your boss. (Change BOSS with whatever you want - a spouse, a child, a parent...). That's one reason for ENDLESS political/religious/historical/whatever discussions. The other one is:I HAVE AN OPINION AND IT MATTERS AND I WANT TO BE HEARD AND RECOGNIZED.They have no one to talk to in real life. They have no one to fight with in real life. They are lonely. Their family doesn't care for them. They don't have many friends (if all). They don't matter. To anyone. So, they start controversial topics and threads, that will get some attention, that will give them the illusion that their opinion counts, that will provoke others to respond. It will both make them feel important and give them that human connection they so much crave for.I was busy and haven't been online much lately. Yesterday I visited a local forum I used to spend some time on every now and then. There's one man there, always ready to fight, always provoking people, always opening controversial threads about anything (politics, God, women, homosexuals...). So, yesterday I saw him hysterically opening thread after thread, name calling people (including me - and I didn't log in for more than a month), acting like crazy in order to attract people's attention... Other members seem to be ignoring him and his silly threads for a while. Nobody wants to argue with him any more. Some even started blocking him. So, he started to panic. THERE'S NO ONE TO TALK/FIGHT WITH ANY MORE. He's gone virtually mad and will soon virtually die. People who want to fight and come here (or on any other social network) just to fight - they fulfilled their purpose and they won't stop doing what they want just because someone else doesn't like it. People who want attention and fight is the only way they can get it - will continue doing it no matter what anyone says.JUST IGNORE.
I noticed something about people who enjoy discussing politics. It seems that it makes them feel important. As if they become politicians themselves while doing it. It's like a sport for some people. They cheer their team up and - for a moment - they ARE that team and they feel the connection and belonging to something bigger than themselves.I think it's one of the reasons why political discussions are so popular and passionate.
Bella, Nice way you have put it. I don't engage in anything other than laughable matters. I can't be bothered with people's anger and misery they have brought upon themselves. I usually ignore all of it. Good to see you around.
Yes Usha, you should be more politically correct and refer to these two men as "a couple of mongs" or "there were two spazmos" Shame on you girl!
Nice, I hope you attend the canonization of St. Harbal on 27th July at St. Paul's cathedral. I didn't read Biffs blog challenging mods. I read when she writes her own stories. I read your watch blog. But what could I say. Buy a digital watch. Anyway in British schools they teach digital time telling in grade four or five. Did you attend Kiwi school or British school ?
Don't give me homework Naughty. I have to Google those words.Shame on me twice now.
I want your homework done by 2 pm, Usha, or you ´ll be punished
Zman, I always miss the weekend bartender who is deaf, dumb and blind. Most of the time I miss his actions. But come on. People like us who don't do club hopping are stuck here in eternal hell. where is this Happily ever after? I don't have to find a man for that right?
Naughty, I'd rather take the punishment later darling.
It's all politics Johnny. I know few Russians submariners lost their lives and the submarine was nuclear powered. Politicians are not shedding tears but the parents of those kids who died are. I don't know the other story. Will Google later. I flip through the channels in the morning just to find out if the world is still spinning in BBC. Then I sing, we didn't start the fire, it was always burning since the world's been turning and get on with my life.
Johnny, Robert and Peter are same. I think he is being smart lately. Disassociating himself from himself by creating a Peter putter.
I'm on holiday at the moment, so I'm chilling out and checking various websites and applications I haven't visited for months. Greetings to all!
Badly, I find it funny when the deaf and the dumb makes fun of the blindness of the blind.
Great blog, Usha But, using Z's example, it is the regular people at the bar, the oneswho go to the barman to complain about the troublemakers, are the ones who get thrown out. Not the troublemakers.I have practically given up drinking in that particular bar anyway. The clientele has deteriorated.
As much as I admired Harb’s wit and Biff’s word skill, there are plenty of others missing from the bar we once likened to “Cheers”Not wishing to sound like a misery guts, but what’s left is akin to tip toeing through a graveyard. It’s rarely entertaining and just not funny.I gave up politicking on here eons ago. As Bellana suggested, it’s for those who have nothing else or no-one particular in their lives to gripe about.I rarely frequent this bar now. Frankly, it gives me the shits Sorry Usha. An otherwise good blog
