Unpopular opinions

Go ahead. Pile on.

  1. I think the Grateful Dead is one of the most overrated bands of all time.
  2. I think there should be a special place in hell for mean people — on Earth.
  3. I think folks should stop worrying about how offended they are at every little thing, and try to concentrate more on enjoying life, because it’s too dang short.
  4. I think the bad guys win way too often.
  5. I think mega-churches should render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s.
  6. I think people who refuse to see the evil of Common Core State Standards and its high-stakes testing are deliberately, willfully (and therefore unforgivably) ignorant.
  7. I think a lot of discipline problems at school would go away if a big ol’ alligator-arm principal was allowed to throw a kid or two up against a locker, like in the old days.
  8. I think all political parties should be disbanded, defunded, and prohibited from ever forming again. And go back to popular vote for the presidency.
  9. I think deregulation of the airline industry was a bad idea. Say it with me: ol·i·GOP·o·ly
  10. I think that before anyone complains about anyone else’s profession, the complainer must first spend a year at the job in question.

Bring yer own! Set, go. ;-)

I wonder how many of our economic problems would be solved if such entities were taxed as corporations, just like the rest of us poor souls. #6. One has to question if these pro-CC people aren’t on the payroll somewhere. I will add my own list, but at another time. It’s my birthday and snarking is forbidden. PK- Stoking up on the oxygen so I can blow out all those candles! ReplyRat Fink Reply:April… Read more »

This one should be especially popular: I think people who are parents should be banned from telling people who are not parents that they ‘just don’t understand’ how hard it is to raise a child and that therefore their opinion isn’t relevant. If experience is the key requirement to be able to discuss a topic, most ‘parents’– and painfully so, the most opinionated ones– would find they couldn’t comment on a host of topics, from foreign policy to sports to the energy crisis to evolution to cancer research and beyond, chiefly because they, not being scientists or diplomats or analysts,… Read more »

How much time and space do I have? OK…OK, briefly: 1. I think all PAC and special interest money needs to go away, even then I am not sure American politics can be saved. Regardless of Party affiliation, politics in America has been corrupted by the highest bidder. 2. Regarding politicians, their retirement benefits should match the number of years of their service and no longer be lifetime benefits (including former Presidents). Any crime they are convicted of while in their elected Office would immediately sever those benefits. 3. Those who perpetrate crimes against women and children need to be… Read more »
