I don't really know which side to pick, but I'm not against zoos. The purpose of a zoo is to inhabitant animals and rehabilitate and raise them so as to not go extinct. Considering, most animals in zoos are endangered species, and if you put them back in the wild, they will be wiped out. Plus, the letting people see the animals part of a zoo is probably to make the situation a win/win for the zoos. Meaning, the people that go to the zoos and pay to get in and who donate money within it, the money gets used to help the animals. So, in a sense, it's like fundraising for the animals. And no one would really wanna just give the people $30 if they can't at least see the animals. The zoos are just the foreground to making the general public more aware of animals in the world, and it WORKS... it makes us more compassionate towards them and wanting to help them... and it leads people to give money to random animal preservation charities.
Therefore, they are not primarily in zoos for human entertainment. Because there actually is NOTHING entertaining about watching an animal locked in a caged home. In fact, zoos make me sad more than happy. But I love seeing the animals at the same time because they're more beautiful than the average human being. :-)
stereotyping helps produce statistics. A statistic of approx 45% of all married couples divorcing someday, is a statistic based on a stereotype. In 2005, 57% of illegal immigrants in the US, are from Mexico, is therefore a statistic and a stereotype that at least half of illegal immigrants are Mexicans.
Partly because I wasn't raised to. Partly because I see no reason to. And partly because I don't want to.
I don't like the way religious people act, whatsoever. I don't like churches. They idea of worship is obnoxious. The belief that Jesus is suppose to be my role model, sounds like bullshit.
Therefore, if there is a God, he's not worth my time, mind, or energy. I'm a perfectly decent person without religion and God. And best of all, I'm not a hypocrite! Woot!
Well, you have no better grounds to know if that was a racial issue or if those black guys are perhaps, listed fugitives.
It does sound racist, but blacks DO have a higher rate of unlawful behavior. There have even black men admitting to it.
Therefore, I think cops, (not all, but some) use the facts to determine what they might have to deal with when they come in contact with a white man, vs. a black man, and even vs. a Mexican. I mean, shit, blacks may be more likely to pull a gun on you and drive off, but Mexicans are more likely to start running like hell (back to the border, hehe). Like, I said, this doesn't apply to every cop or every man of any race or color, but it's pretty much statistics.
Here's why: there's this one quote in the movie 'What happens in Vegas' that I effin admire... the judge declares that it's not gays that ruin marriage, but people that go to Vegas (or a place similar to it, or no where really) and get married on impulse, and then go on and get divorces... therefore, treating marriage like a bit, fat, joke.
Seriously, marriages should be banned in places like Vegas, places loaded with alcohol and immature behavior, banned for people that have known each other, perhaps, for less than a year, people that treat marriage like a piece of shit. At LEAST gays are fighting for the goddamn thing out of respect, integrity, and love.
So, yes, gays should have the right to marry because they're more serious about it than the common straight couple is. I don't care what's in between someone's fucking legs, it's the motives, desire, commitment and love that counts.
No one is ever hated by everyone as a whole. Therefore, just in today's world, there are a handful of people that dislike me, maybe even hate my being, but there's also a wider portion that like/love me. Therefore, I would rather, and I will, die being hated (and loved), than forgotten.
I become more annoyed and annoyed seeing men say women are so irrational as if we accept "2+2=5." That's not irrationality, that's lack of education, and it sure doesn't apply to the majority of women.
I think there's been a misconception... women aren't irrational, we're rather seen as "emotional." Emotional to the point of "don't fuck with me." Which I guess I can see how the emotions can lead to a sense of irrationality, but do you men also realize we're mainly only really emotional one awesome week a month? At least, that's how it applys to me. I don't become irrational through it, but I do become an emotional "fuck off."
Therefore, I do think this 'women are irrational' statement being made by men is ridiculous and sexist and flawed. Men are seriously just as irrational a species.
Otherwise, I'm interested in hearing what you men find so hard to understand about women. So, we, women, can sit here and bring you enlightenment and solve all your problems.
You forgot to mention the huge rise in obese Americans... another major result of American's laziness.
Plus, it doesn't help this country when useless junk keeps being invented that just allows you to be lazier. Or that crappy processed food is being more and more produced and American's aren't educating themselves that they can still eat healthy on low income. I mean, no one can seriously blame the producers of processed foods, lazy inventions, and all the other junk resulting in obesity and laziness. Lots of Americans really are JUST lazy.
