Status Updates People Need To Stop Sharing On Facebook.

Posted by Zman

We have all seen them and we have at least one friend who shares them.  I'm talking about status updates on Facebook that just make you cringe and wonder what the person was thinking when they shared that status.  Here are just a few things that people need to stop sharing on Facebook.

1.  Guilt Trip Posts.  Any post that says, "since no one reads my posts" or "most of my friends won't share this" or "let's see who really cares about me." etc is a guilt trip post and is a good way to get your post ignored.  The reason most of your friends won't share that post is because they don't care to be guilt tripped.  Most people I know myself included just skip right over those kinds of posts.  so if you're wondering why your friends are not reading your posts it is because you are trying to guilt trip them.

2.  The old Facebook is going to charge a fee unless you post this status update.  This one has been around so long I am surprised anyone still falls for it but at least once a year some ding dong on my friends list shares this one and yes they get made fun of for falling for it.  Hee is the scoop.  Facebook has not plans and never has had plans to charge a fee for their service.  and even if they did do you really think posting a status update to your wall is going to keep them from doing it?  This hoax dates back to the days of Myspace so why people are still falling for it just makes me shake my head.

3.  Memes that tell you to pray for people after a tragedy.  Instead of folding yyour hands and talking to your imaginary friend here is an idea.  Do something to help those affected by whatever happened.  donate blood, send food, clothing, etc.  You know, actually do something.

4.  click like or type Amen posts.  Those are just like farming scams the only ones saying Amen are the scammers who put up the page to gather likes and shares so they can sell the page and send you junk posts

5.  Memes that say if you click like or share something good will happen.  I wonder if people realize that something good would happen weather they share or like the post,   Those tend to also be like farming scams as well so they should also be avoided.

6.  Status updates complaining about people sending game requests.  I know those can be annoying but the person does not send those out.  The games themselves do.  Your friend who plays the game more than likely has no idea the game sent you a request.  You have to go in and block the game.

7.  pictures of what you are eating.  Remember back before social media when we took a picture of our food and went door to door to show each of our friends and family the picture of what we ate for dinner last night?  NO, Me neither because it did not happen so let's not do it on Facebook.  Now I'm all for sharing directions on how to cook something and even a picture to go along with it but I really don't need to see a picture of what you are eating.

8.  Pictures of you child on the toilet.  Now I am all for updates on my friends kids mile stones and many times a picture is nice.  but please, no one wants to see a picture of little Betty on the toilet.  I don't know in what alternate universe that parent lives in who thinks people want to see that but they don't.

9.  Posts that shame people for what they should or should not be wearing at a certain age.  How about we stop judging people.  If someone is comfortable wearing something then that is their business.  If you don't  like the fact that kids wear baggy pants then don't look at them.  No need to shame people based on what they wear.  Also while I'm on the subject.  your kids don't care if you think their music sucks.  They have their music just like we had ours.  They are allowed to like their music without our input.  When you complain about someone's music you sound like an old fart.  Knock it off.

10.  Vaguebooking.  If you have something to say just say it.  People don't have time to play twenty questions. If you can't tell the whole story then don't say anything abut it.  No need for the vague posts.  

I'm sure there are more but those are the big ones that annoy most people.

Marriage Equality Was Legalized One Year Today In The U S, So Where Are The Disasters That Were Predicted

Posted by Zman

One year ago today the U S celebrated a great day as the U S Supreme Court ruled five to four in favor of marriage equality.  It should have been a 9 to 0 vote but at least it was made legal.  If you recall the far right was prediction how god was going to send his wrath against the U S if gays were allowed to marry.  Some goof balls were even predicting that this would lead to people marrying their dogs.  Yes, silly as it sounds, there are people who actually think that.  Also some were saying how it would taint the institution of marriage.  The list of dumb predictions goes on and on.  So, it has been a year.  Where is gods wrath?  Where are these preachers who said they would set themselves on fire to protest same sex marriage, how about all the civil unrest that these preachers said they were planning in the wake of he supreme court ruling.   I have not seen or heard anything from these nuts or their god.  If god exists I would think he has more important things to worry about then who gets married to whom.   With all the problems going on around the world think a supreme being would have better things to do than send storms and other disasters after people just because of their sexual orientation.   Seems that god if he does exist is not really that concerned about it.   So right wing nuts, when is all this bad stuff supposed to start happening?

Donald Trump Tells Drought Stricken California "There Is No Drought"

He claims the drought is being manufactured by state officials who are actually diverting water in to the ocean to protect a three inch long fish.  Of course he has no evidence to back up this claim.   It just saddens me that there are people who actually take this "man" seriously and are actually going to vote for him.  Telling Californians there is not drought would be like gong in to a cancer hospital and telling cancer patents that there is no cancer.   If he actually has the chance to carry out his plan that will make the situation much worse.  Although Trump would never admit that if it did happen.  He would just deny it is happening.  He says he is drawing big crowds.  Drawing big crowds of racist, homophobic, science denying morons is not something I would be advertising.  Hitler drew big crowds too.  Just because someone draws "big crowds" does not mean it is a good thing.

Islamophobic Jackass kicked out of Ice Cream Parlor After Making Racist Comments.

I'm guessing he is probably a Trump supporter.  Love how the Ice Cream Parlor employees handled this.  From the article it sounds like this "man" was causing problems at at least one other store.  How miserable this mans life must be if he has to be so hateful.

These Bathroom Laws Need to be Flushed Down the Toilet

Posted by Zman

As we all know by now North Carolina has a law that requires people to use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex.  In other words if they were born a male they have to use the Men's Room or if they were born female they have to use the Women's room.  The law puts trans gender people in the position of not being able to use the bathroom of th sex they are now.  This missguided laws claim they are "protecting children from those who change their sex to prey on children and women in public restrooms.  These laws assume that people who are transgender are perverts who prey on children and women which is in fact not true and a baseless fear being spread by ignorant people who probably have taken a piss next to a transgender person more times then they realize.  Look,   Let me put this simply so even an idiot can understand.  People who are transgender are born one sex but feel they should have been born the opposite.   They are not transgender because they want to go in to the opposite sex restroom and molest your daughter.  You are probably more likely to get gang raped by a heard of moose while walking backwards on your hands blindfolded  in Arizona then you are to be assaulted by a transgender person in the bathroom at Sears.  Now the Department of Justice is suing North Carolina and they of course being idiots, are suing back claiming they want toe courts to rule that HB2 does not discriminate.  They must have a pretty weird view of discrimination.  "On Monday A North Carolina school system adopted a policy allowing high school students  carry pepper spray this fall, a policy one board member said may be useful for students who encounter transgender classmates in the bathroom.
The Salisbury Post reports (http://bit.ly/1TzmUGY) the policy was adopted by the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education during a work session on Monday.
Board member Chuck Hughes said using the sprays was purely defensive, and he referenced the North Carolina law that limits LGBT rights, saying such sprays could help female students if they go to the bathroom and don't know who's coming in after them."  Full article here.  Now I'm all for students carrying pepper spray for defense.  but it should not be used to attack someone for simply using the bathroom.   It is both sad and scary that people like Chuck Hughes is allowed to make educations decisions about children.  Honestly with his attitude, I wouldn't hire him to pick up my dog poop.

If you are the kind of person that is that obsessed over who is taking a dump in the stall next to you, then maybe you're the pervert.  Most people don't care.  Most rational people go in the bathroom, do what ever they need to do and get out.  Not a big deal.   We don't care what the person next to us is using to go to the bathroom.   If these people who love to spread fear would actually put their efforts in to actually doing good, just imagine the progress we could make if these fearful hateful sad excused for human beings would just change their ways and stop using hate and ignorance to discriminate against others.

WATCH: Woman Confronts Man for Using Food Stamps at Walmart

So many people who use food stamps are hard working individuals who just want to support their families. This man just wants to buy food and necessities for his child and the fact that this woman has the nerve to cause a scene over something that is quite literally none of her business is disgusting. She doesn't know this man's story and it's not her place or any of our places to judge. I hope one day this man doesn't have to use food stamps as a means to provide for his family and this woman pulls her head out of her ass.   This woman is an ignorant, judgmental, nosy piece of trash.

Ignorant Parents at School Board Meeting Who Don't Want to Hear the Facts About Transgender Teens Break in to Song to Drown Out The Facts.

I Guess when you have no argument against the facts, the go to response by ignorant, fear mongering morons is to break in to a religious song.  Very happy this one mother stood up to defend the rights of Trans Gender students and shame on the ignorant "parents" for sticking their fingers in their ears and going lalalalalalala 

From the article.

"One lone parent stood up to the hundreds in the room asking why trans students don't deserve the same rights as all the other students. Melanie Moore "argued that transgender people should not be lumped into the same category as pedophiles, rapists or other criminals. She also tried to explain how transgender students are born one sex, but feel as though they should have been born the opposite gender – though she was shouted over by many members of the crowd," The State reports.
“Everybody is concerned about their children. The transgender parents are concerned about their children too, so I thought it was important that somebody stand up for them,” Moore said.
After more than six minutes of defending her position, Moore was silenced when parents broke out into song to drown her out. "Jesus love me, yes I know, for the Bible tells me so," a popular Christian hymn, they chose to end discussion."

How these "Bathroom Laws" Affect Children with Special Needs

One of the many issues with these so called "bathroom Laws" is they discriminate against children with special needs.  These laws do contain an exemption if you are a care giver but they do not allow lets say a parent with a special needs child over seven years old to accompany an opposite sex parent in to the bathroom if the parent has to use the restroom but the child cannot be left unsupervised and wait outside.  I was thinking about this the other night at work as I saw a parent wheel a child in a wheel chair in the the restroom for this very reason.  I had to use the restroom myself at work and noticed this was what was going on and wondered how this would work in these states that have "bathroom laws" turns out my fear was justified.  Here is an article that talks about this very thing.
