    We wonder why kids keep going 'columbine' on their peers, and this is why. They have no form of release anymore. It just builds and builds and builds and eventually, a few snap.

    i'm not one to usually go on this enviroment and movies/video game shit
    but i think people have always considered or thought about going postal or columbine
    but it was just pushed to the back of the mind
    but when you can jump on COD and have the time of your life literally killing other people in a multiplayer enviroment, or GTA, shoot outs with cops etc, or the movies
    the society, as advanced as it has become, still glorifies violence
    and people who have no where else to turn, and want to leave a mark instead of just offing themselves... this is the path they choose to take

    i remember back in the day kids used to bring shotguns to school in their trucks and shit
    but it was just a different time
    nothing ever came from it, and they'd be out hunting after school, or before school

    our society is being fucked of its values, and its just getting worse and worse as the ever eroding morals are passed on from generation to generation, with each generation getting a shittier version that the generation before

    you would think this whole recession/depression might make some people think about the values that some of us got from our parents, who got them from their parents who lived through the great depression
    dont waste food or energy or money, dont throw things away if you can fix it
    recycle in its most basic form of reusing items and containers that still have some sort of value beyond which they were originally intended.

    and as much as i am not one to thump a bible, i think the decline in values, morals and principles goes hand in hand with the lack of religion...
    no more scary god to send you to hell if you are bad, so why should you treat other like you want to be treated? why not just be all about yourself, be greedy, ship jobs overseas, make that dollar, who gives a fuck right... its all about you being #1

    I disagree with the religion aspect. You don't need to believe in a higher being to be an ethical person.

    I do agree with you... although it doesnt hurt.
    I myself don't really throw faith into my corner, but i don't discount the possibility that there could be no god, could be a god, or could be aliens or a flying spaghetti monster.
    I was raised in a religious family, but i would have the same ethics I have now regardless because my parents taught me right from wrong, and there were always consequences for bad behavior, and I had to work for what i had or received.

    so religion can help people get that ethical basis if they did not learn it from their parents
    but without religion, its pretty much up to the parents to teach their children morals and values, and you see how well we can count on that happening.

    the trash is out breeding the educated out of pure ignorance
    and that ignorance is going to be multiplied and passed on to their children and so on and so forth until there's nothing left worth fighting for.

    I can't make the same correlation. Look at all the rappers/etc who 'thank god and jesus christ' every chance they get, yet talk about blunts 40s bitches and murders all day long....

    completely off base on this
    wiffle/kick ball is not a release that is going to keep anyone from going "columbine"
    if anything... the ridicule, stress, and embarrassment involved in games like that would add more fuel to the fire
    wah!!! i got picked last
    wah!! i suck as sports so no one likes me
    wah!! everyone picked on me for not making that run/out
    wah!! im to fat and slow to make to to base
    wah!! that ball hurt when they threw it at me
    wah wah wah wah f'n WAH!!!


    no... this is simply one more piece in the Pussification of America

    If you grew up on home cooked meals, you rode a bike with no helmet, your parents house was not "child-proof" , you got a whippin' when you misbehaved, had 3 TV channels you got up to change or went outside to turn the antenna, school started with the Pledge of Allegiance, stores were closed on Sunday, you drank water out of a water hose and still turned out okay, you survived....

    America has been officially Pussyfi'ed!!

    this is a bigger issue. kids these days all get trophies and certificates of participation. it's too much to get your kid to WIN, parents encourage their kids to "just try hard". it's bullshit. the only thing that ever got hurt in a fist fight was your pride. but you get up, dust your self off, and become a man afterwards.

    america is too much about warm fuzzies and not enough cock and balls.


    all fucking true

    talk the talk vs walk the walk

    i think they should be raising their eyes to allah vs god and jesus if they're rapping about murder.
    apparently thats a ok to muslims

    i must have missed the pussy line afterwards, lol
    all i usually had left was a broken finger, or blood somewhere

    I went to a rec center in nyc with a friend and some thai pads. They told us to get lost.. if we practice muay thai and then go jump someone, the state doesnt wanna be liable, even though I was the one instructing.

    Kids are suppose to get into fights, get their ass kicked, break bones, do dumb shit, and get in trouble for it.

    My house wasn't child proof. You fell down the stairs, you're more careful next time. You get shocked by an outlet, you learn not to do it again. You pull your sister's hair, your dad smacks you on the ass.

    There needs to be consequences and rewards for some actions and none for others. Win, get a trophy. Come in 4th, nothing. Be jealous of the guy in 1st and work harder to excel.

    As far as germaphobes, they'd have a heart attack watching me.

    I broke my leg in 4th grade playing kick ball. I turned out just fine. Fucking whiney ass bitches. I got picked on all the time because I couldn't do shit for sports. I learned to stand up for myself and tell people to fuck off. Everyone thought it was real cute standing around me in a circle and shoving me until I grabbed one of them and threw him on the ground. Gym class sucked. No reason for it to get turned into yoga with big gay Tim though.
