See, I can misquote to make a point about a blog too.
Shame on jesusfreakinco for slapping children. Thank you for speaking up, Valyooo.
Children are our future and slapping our future means that our future is worse than our past. That would really suck, if that was the case.
jessusfreakingco is one of those people who we should get on Nancy Grace show so he can be exposed for his behavior.
No one should be allowed to be slapping children. NO ONE (but they sure can drive you crazy sometimes).
I hope that every child jesusfreakinco slapped will find him when they grow up (and he's like in his eighties) to ask him: Do you wanna dance now you old freak-o?
+1 for Valyooo, and a call to Children Protective Services for jesusfreakinco.
Just for the record, I have nothing against torturing of parrots. Unless they are the kind that can speak.
Bawwwk! DragonLZ tortured me! Bawwwk!
The number of people that torture parrots is probably far less than the number of people that are tortured by parrots. Girlfriend loves birds? Do youhave any idea what it's like to live with them?
Order your earplugs by the case.
Not thoughts on slapping children. Oh yes - here's one. For stopping temper tantrums, chase them around the house with a camera taking pictures and laughing. Let them think you're keeping an album of these pictures. The fits will grow more and more intense the first few times you do it, but it won't be irritating to you at all - you'll be laughing too hard.
You can watch the realization dawn on them that this is just too much fun for you and is getting them nowhere, and no amount of discipline could possibly be anywhere near as effective.
Believe me, it works and it's fun. Unfortunately, it works so good the fun doesn't last long.
how dare you, you rec'd the blog, meaning you DO condone child slapping? A pox upon your household!
Actually, one time I had to feed my neighbors parrot and it tried to rip my eyes out every time...tore up my shirt once...screw it, I rec this post too!
Truth, I knew I could count on you for advice in this field!
here is the real reason one should not slap children:
about 2 1/2 years ago I was at the movies with my son, then 8, his brother, then 6, and other brother, then 4. the 4 year old leans over and says
"chetwist can I tell you sumpin?"
"bobbies sitted on my face" (thats the 6 year old)
"oh wow, that sucks"
"yeah, i was just layingon the floor resting my eyes and he sat right on my face"
"yeah, and hims bootocks was nakkit when him did dat, and it got my face stinky the whole day"
"holy crap that sucks"
about 1 week ago the same kids were over at my house and the now-6 year old, call him Tommy, says to me
"checklist I get my paybacks at Bobby"
"one time him sit on my face"
"yeah, I remember". I have told that story 5000 times, of course I remember.
"yeah, so when I go to bed I can stayup a long time if I want, I don't need to sleep. But I get bored so I usually sleep. When Bobby goes to bed he needs to sleep, he sleeps right away and then sleeps and sleeps. So I just go to bed when Mama puts me to bed, but I stayup and up and up. And then when Bobby is sleepin and mama is sleepin and dad is sleepin I go to bobbies room, and I get on his bed. And I get my buttocks naked and I sit down a little bit, and I wait, because he is lseeping on his side. But I know he will roll over so I just wait and wait. And then he rolls onto his back and I sit on his face"
"yeah, and I nkow his face is stinky after that too"
"I smelt it. Plus I don't wipe that whole day, so its real stinky"
And htat is why you shouldn't mess with kids. Thats the equivalent of a 30 year old waiting 20 years to pay you back for sitting on his face. lol
I am equally tired of dramatized hyperbolic posts from the bearish camp. I don't even think they enjoy any other form of posting, just big drama with as many big words as can possibly be shoved into it to give the air of an intellectual debate.
truth, that camera idea is pretty cool.
don't slap children, they already have bad habits. ruined.
slap babies, before they get bad habits.
as for the parrots... . . . could be a terrorist. we won't know until we get a confession.
It is an interesting sign that this post received 14 recs already. I am guessing Motley Fool is infested with those that believe the ends justify the means. It really doesn't surprise me. It is what is wrong with this country and is what is leading our country down the wrong path. Sorry I wasted your time.
My posts were merely an experiment and the results confirm my conclusions...
Quote from Valyooo "You are missing my point. My point is, how can you call somebody who participated in a bul market an idiot? Money is money, whether or not you think it is "worthless inflated funny money" or not."
all children deserve to be slapped.
pirates torture people and parrots are friends of pirates. I say we torture them all!

No. Your posts were an unveiled, passive-aggressive attack on someone with whom you disagree. The simple fact that you are unable to have a civil conversation, albeit one that exists online, with someone who disagrees with you is what is truly "wrong with this country".
So I had to read through a lot of blogs to get the point of this blog. I rarely read anyones blogs, but obviously I am tracking entries in the chimp contest and saw this at the top of the daily rec's.
Although I agree with Russian that the best and brightest shouldn't be trading stocks and should be building / creating things, at the end of the day we live in a market based economy. Additionally, virtually everyone in this country has the same opportunity to get a solid education.
Those two facts alone put me in your camp Valyooo. I am building homes when no homes are needed in my general location. I also trade stocks that add no value to the economy. I am going to make a $hitload of money in the next 5-7 years. I don't care if what I do adds no value to society and in fact may hurt society. Why?
Because I spent 15 years working in corporate America for 2 dow components, the largest public accounting firm in the world and one of the largest homebuilders in the US. What did I get financially? $hit. Oh sure I received a managers salary and lots of effing hours of work, but I really was no better off after 15 years helping US corporations cut costs, audit the integrity of their books, or set up IT infrastructure.
I don't feel sorry for anyone just small animals and small children.
No one pays me a salary anymore and every day I risk my own money. It doesn't matter if I add value or not. A market based economy is tilted towards rewarding those that take major risks. Just ask all those Bear Stearns traders taking risk with other peoples money.
Sorry your corporate experiences weren't the best, chimp. I am fortunate to make money (incentivized since I'm on a very small base and very high commission structure) and truly makes lives better in addition to saving lives and reducing suffering. I work with a tremendous group of people. Working in small, caring, & innovative companies can't be beat. (Thus, I still advocate beating children & parrots. At least when the beatings stop, they will appreciate how good they have it.)
If one is doing something that hurts society, I am a bit curious how one sleeps at night. (Beating obviously being the exception.)
#12, you make me wish I could rec up comments here.
To add to your point (at least I think this is part of your point), I feel this way: Market based economies are the best form of economies. However, they set up a scenario in which things like stock trading can make one rich. So be it, that is a cost of a better economy than a planned one. I also think that the winners of the "stock market game" balance out the losers at the end of the day. Those that make money "add nothing of value to society", and those that lose money probably have to work twice as hard to pay their bills...one person does zero "economic value work", the other does twice as much...that is a balance. And it keeps markets liquid which encourages IPO's.
If these so called bright minds want to spend their lives trading and investing (which I do, even though I am far from one of the brightest minds out there) then it shows the kind of person they are (this is not good or bad). It is not as if I strive to create something new and was tragically manipulated into investing in stocks...this is what I want to do, I don't see that as a shame.
