Don't Bother with Blundering Blusterers

A     L     O     H     A    !
An Idiot Sings by White Town on Grooveshark
"Strange as it seems,
 no amount of learning
can cure stupidity,
and higher education
 positively fortifies it. "

Stephen Vizinczey

" A fanatic is 
one who can't 
change his mind 
and won't 
change the subject. "

 Sir Winston Churchill

Navatek "Swath Hull Technology"  LINK
" He who establishes 
his argument 
by noise and command, 
shows that 
his reason is weak. "

Michel de Montaigne

" Never wrestle with pigs.
You both get dirty
and the pig likes it."

George Bernard Shaw

" If your enemy is hungry, 
give him bread to eat;

And if he is thirsty, 
give him water to drink;
For so you will 
heap coals of fire 
on his head,

And the Lord 
will reward you."

Bible, Proverbs 25

[ Sounds more satisfying
 than arguing! ]


Every issue has two sides to it.

Through discussion & debate
we all arrive at a 
better understanding.

That's how it's
Supposed to Work!

I no longer 
argue with,
- or long listen to -
aggrieved loudmouths
who do not yet
understand this.

They do not care 
to learn
possible flaws
in their lack
of reasoning,
but believe 
what they often hear,
and hear only
what they believe.

I agreeably refuse
to take notice,
to engage or respond
to their tirade
while remaining
and open to
other topics and

I'm simply 
"Over It"

How about YOU?

Don't have enough hair left to pull out, to not be over it.

Life can be so more meaningful than to argue with fanatics. They're in their niche, and admit no other.

Hard to imagine you arguing, but I avoid it too. Life's too short.
Hawaii has sailing schooners again? Isn't that the inter-island ferry boat?

Soooo over it :) you can't win with some people and it's a waste of precious time and energy trying oui :) It must be wonderful looking out at the many different sailing vessels coming into your harbour.

No it doesn't!

Charles Gramlich said...

Most issues these days seem to have a lot more than two sides to me.


Yup, over it too! I do love the way those first two quotes capture things...and the dreamy images again, sigh...

Brian Miller said...

Have a nice and restful weekend, Cloudia. Let's hope the vog will blow away. I got quite a lungful last night. Ugh.

Elephant's Child said...

I listen to fanatics. Once. And then quietly tiptoe away if I can. I can't change anyone's mind but my own.

Happy Valentines

William Kendall said...

Gorgeous images.

I've known too many aggrieved fanatics....

Myrna R. said...

I'm so over it. I don't use energy to argue or listen to fanatics. Time is so precious. Hope you had a happy day.

There is a certain friend who I've had to really be patient with during his rants and ravings about the Democratic Party and President Obama. I can listen to arguments, but not when they become offensive and mean. Then I have to tell him that I'm going to have to back away to my happier place, because he's not making me happy.

That quote about higher education does not bode well for me... Love your views about being over it. The quote about arguing with pigs is priceless. Pics are wonderful, too!
