To note, the picture sent to me from this very mature Editor at Minyanville was this. And this is suppose to come from someone who is advocating gun control because he cares about other people? This is a prime example of the problem in America, people think image has a direct effect on the weighting of the quality of someones thought or intellect that they bring to the table, it doesn't.
Apparently the Editor at Minyanville is so shallow he would discount Steven Hawkins merely based on his appearance and that's sad, it's almost a form of a mental health problem it would appear. Is this how we want to have our population to behave, by judging the quality of someone's material based on their appearance, would you want to teach your child these values? Is that the American values we want projected?
Seems more like a personal motive as clearly he has no respect for anyone who doesn't share his view. Again, expected behavior from a website that markets an image and doesn't traffik in factual material (hence the Zerohedge blast).
The mass of ignorance in America now far, far outweighs the intelligence, resulting in a disconnect between her "elected leaders" and the serfs the ruling class controls. This is what is hurting us as a Nation. We have become children full of extreme diatribe and think winning a conversation or debate can only be done by degrading and minimizing the other side.
It is your responsibility to assume the risk of your life, not the States. If you want to watch TV all day, go out drinking at night, and be promiscuous while acting like it's cool to not understand physics or the human brain, then you will be run the fuck over. The point is to gain knowledge so your input can be of some value. Most people absorb the perception that guns are enemy number one, leader of all things death related.
Consider this from the CDC, this next table shows the LEADING causes of death in 2011 in America:
Perhaps it's not the guns but like I hinted at earlier in this post, perhaps the issue is our school system that is stuck in the Industrial Revolution. Perhaps if we all didn't pretend like we know everything because what most of us do know, has been stolen from other people that came before us. We're all wandering through this, going,
- #1 - "You know what you're doing?",
- #2 - "Yes",
- #1 - "Oh, I do, too. I know what I'm doing."
- #2 - "Okay. Good, then."
This all comes back to education. Gun owners know gun safety results from education and Anti-guns people want guns banned because of a handful of mass shooting that took place on school grounds, not realizing the worse school massacre was a bombing.
I leave you with this comment and the following videos and plead with you, dear reader, to be aware of the substance brought by you or anybody else to the debate:
"We risk becoming the best informed society to ever die of ignorance"
