I have to say, I am appalled at the ignorance of Walmart Workers.

I am truly at a loss.

I came to realize that the ignorance is based in their perception of the causes of certain stuffz n' things.

Someone walks through the door?

"Hello, welcome to Walmart."

Shut up, I don't even know you!!!!

Someone's just browsing through the store. No particular goal. Just having a nice day.

"Can I help you with anything?"

Can't a person just browse in piece!!!

Someone's shoplifting that one kind of cheesy chip things.

"Hey you! Stop that!"

It's a recession!!! What do you care?!?!

Someone just gets used to where the shelves are located.

Moves them around.

Going through the check-out.

Puts two gallons of milk in one bag.

Finally leaving the god forsaken place.

"Have a nice day."

GODAMNITSHUTUP.

Bag with two milks rip when putting it in the car.

Kills everyone.

The point is, everyone has there opinions because they believe they're right and others are wrong, otherwise they would have the other opinion. We all came to our opinions based on how we were raised, what our genes are, what we have experienced and what information we have taken in during the course of our lives. In other words, it's pretty damn pointless to blame someone for their opinions and it's just rude blame them for expressing it. It's a lot easier to sort out information and live peacefully with all the other people who will inevitably have different opinions from us when their every attempt to communicate their position is not filled with ad homs. Liberals, conservatives, Christians, or atheists are not the problem in a community meant for rational debate. The problem is any time someone feels the uncontrollable need to point out how stupid and wrong the other person is.

Grow the fuck up.

This is the politics section on a debate website.

People need to stop bitching about other people attacking other ideaologies.

Please, stop floating this pious baloney about everyone getting along. The point of debate is disagreement.

If you've ever been in a debate club, or anything similar you'd know that the first thing they teach is to separate the debate from the person. In other words, to have respect for your opponent and to treat them as your equal. The purpose of debate is to share perspectives, and you can't share if you're close minded and spiteful toward those with different opinions.

Ya, the thread that this thread was making fun of did not attack any person. It attacked an ideaology.

So, that is entirely appropriate.

1. This thread attacks nothing. Its just calling for some civility.

2. You called LIBERALS ignorant,...you did not call LIBERALISM ignorant.

frankly, the latter isn't okay either as it's characteristic of people and thus insulting to whoever qualifies under that description. Calling liberalism ignorant = calling liberals ignorant. No matter how you slice it, you insulted people,...and everyone is aware. So you're not convincing anyone with that argument.

Yes, you are correct. Do you see this Jimtimmy? Reasoning agrees that your thread was an attack on liberals. :)

I love a good FREEDO thread...

How about, everybody stop being stupid and ignorant, stop being conservatives/liberals, and we can all live happily ever after in a self-regulated communal society with no bad stuff ever.

I've seen too many discussions on this forum derailed by petty bickering and personal attacks. People need to learn to stick to the issues being discussed, and more importantly, to turn the other cheek. The "Ignorance of Conservatives" topics should have never been made, because two wrongs do not make a right.

A matter of fact, the majority of active users here ARE capable of discussing their disagreements without demeaning each other. And they are more persuasive for it.

Yes we are all aware that Jimtimmy hates liberals almost as much as he hates treating people with respect....

Me or him?
It really depends on how drunk you are. For example, right now I can type fairly complex sentences, like this one, with several clauses, which one can only assume would be a bitch to translate in Latin. Cicero style.
