The Five “Things You Don't Understand the Fuss About” Challenge…

Hmm, the five “Things You Don't Understand the Fuss About” Challenge…

Blame this young guy for lighting my fuse – actually I quite like the way he writes too… clear and concise even if I don’t agree with some.



So, first up has to be the “BJ BJ”. Who the h3!! gives a monkeys!!! The mistake was lying about it. That said far more than did the BJ or who performed it.

The second has to be “celebrity press”. You know, the industry based upon who is bonking whom in Hollywood, who has just got a zit on the end of their nose, the papparazzi… Who the h3!! gives a monkeys!! The saddest thing is the number of people who buy it.

The third has to be religion. I mean, how can you separate blind faith from indoctrination? It IS very personal. I am NOT a religion hater. As far as I am concerned there is just no point to it. No, I have already had the hell-fire and damnation routine several times; I have already been committed to several different forms of retaliative karma; I have already been promised a short life as an ant. Who the h3!! gives a monkeys!! The saddest thing is the number of people who buy it. At that point I will say this – to all those of you who profess a religion I respect both you and your beliefs. I understand that your belief can be as strong and as well founded as can my own “disbelief”. I just can not see why it should generate as much fuss as it does. Now when you talk “morality” – that is totally different…

Having put religion into the mix, I have to insert politics as well and for exactly the same reason. There is only one problem – running counter to the “Don’t understand the fuss…” idea – with including it. To my chagrin I have to admit politics as being a necessary evil. Yep, there is my cynicism shining bright. I can not for the life of me though get my head around the vindictive and childish behaviour that seems to accompany the process of “government”. There are all the labels. There are all the attitudes. There is all of the pedantic and hypocritical "morality". There are all of the “meme”s (and I do intend the dreadful pun there) that are dragged into the daylight every time opposing views are expressed. Do I have an alternative? Yep. It is called “DO EVERYTHING MY WAY”. And at that point – Who the h3!! gives a monkeys!! The saddest thing is the number of people who buy it.

So, there goes four.

The fifth? Getting harder, but sexual orientation must run close. I have no problem with the practices that any other member of society might use to get their rocks off (with one exception - see below). The application of or adherence to those practices on or by me is not compulsory. I do not see an “agenda” of any manner kind or form coming from those who prefer homosexual rather than heterosexual relationships any more than exists the reverse. I do not see any denigration in the marriage covenant from allowing people to express their own relationships in their own way or their own terms. As I have pointed out so often – to all those who oppose the “Civil Unions Act” in this country and outside – prior to that law change if a couple of the Hindu faith wanted their marriage recognised by the State in NZ they had to undertake a second “civil” ceremony based in law on the Christian ceremony. Without that little piece of State-sponsored ritual they could not get the “piece of paper” to prove their relationship. So, what is so different about same-sex relationships. In my book – NONE. Having said that, I exclude entirely and completely that small section of society both hetero and homo that use the weaker, the younger, the trusting, and the disadvantaged members of our society so that they (the users) can get their rocks off in ways that are unacceptable in any system of civilised morality. With the exclusion of THAT small group (whom I believe should not form part of “society”), who the h3!! gives a monkeys!! The saddest thing is the number of people who buy it.

There’s an extended and thoughtful discussion of this at the enlightened caveman.

Who the h3!! gives a monkeys!!

I’m not familiar with such a phrase, can you explain?

Explain "Who the h3!! gives a monkeys!!"?

The politest I can give would be to add perhaps "tit" on the end. Get in the dirt and think just a little... Then go wash your mouth out.

The first guy already responded to this. I just want to say I support his response, especially his use of Hume. To believe anything in this world requires faith, from the round earth to the existence of atoms. I don't see why religion must be singled out as irrational.
