Are you* angry about arguing, or arguing about anger? Or maybe angry about anger?

Seems like there are multiple definitions of "hijack" and they have been argued about, perhaps with some anger.

From the Dep't of Psychobabble: My opinion is that anger is justified when you are treated unfairly. Obviously some people are angry all or most of the time (displaced anger). Forums seem to give angry people a therapeutic outlet. Maybe that prevents dastardly crimes. Argumentative people are probably angry about something. And if angry people are told to stop being angry, no matter whether their anger is justifiable or displaced, they will certainly argue with that. Example of that thought: "Don't tell me to have a 'Nice Day'!"

There's something strangely heartening to see how this thread immediately went off the tracks.


*"you" means anyone you want it to.

Listening to the simulcast (provided from Post #29 LINK from this thread)of the Treasurer's Report, during questions and answers from members, member Mary Potter of the Pensacola Unit asked about the 437% of budget used towards the Ethics and Grievance committee. Response, was "confidentiality" What kind of answer is that??
Not knowing the circumstances, and not being schooled iin Law, why does the IBT-EC-7 need to seek council for a grievance against a member in a provate club?
Do they think they are thin ice, and need to develope leverage?

Brian, the old Malthusian doomsaying just never gets old. To quote the wisdom of "Kay" from Men in Black:

"There's always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet...."

For the neo-Malthusians like Paul Ehrlich and Jared Diamond, the alien "battle cruiser" is always population growth, diminishing natural resources, "peak oil," etc.

The most succinct riposte to Malthus is by science author, Ron Bailey,

"'Two centuries after Malthus,' notes Bailey, 'it is now clear that the exponential growth of knowledge, not population, is the real key to understanding the future of humanity and the earth.'"

Relax, Brian. I think we're going to last long enough as a species for you do whatever camping you want.

Well I watched the Slap Chop commercial and Vince certainly makes it look easy. I bought my wife one of these things. Took it apart to clean it and never could get the cheap thing back together, so I threw it away.

Moral of the story- It doesn't pay to clean stuff.

Here's what I do when I'm angry and I saw this on a vintage movie that I can't remember to title to, you simply stick your head out the window and shout "I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT TAKING IT ANY NORE!"

Try it, it works!
Courtesy parking-- water, elect. and wi-fi.
To those who are about to Stream-I salute you!

More Wag, Less Bark!

"I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me." Dave Barry

"A person is just about as big as the things that make them angry." Winston Churchill

"I drink, therefore I am." W.C. Fields

"To Air is Human, but it feels divine." Mae West (quote modified)

"The art of diplomacy is to say nothing. Especially when speaking." Will Durant

Come to the dark side - we have cookies.

Don't let yesterday take up too much of today.

Everyone is beautiful if you squint a bit.

Everyone leaves the world a little better - some by leaving.

Everything is always okay in the end. If its not okay, then its not the end.

For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.

Friendship is like money. Easier made than kept.

"I would never join any club that would have me as a member." Groucho Marx

"I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?" Tom Clancy

"When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend." The Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verse 16


Would you rather have a mansion full of money or a trailer full of love?
