Midweek Musings…19 October 2016

Just a few of my random ramblings and myriad musings, midweek:

1. I’m going to watch tonight’s debate, because it’s necessary. I won’t do a drinking game, however, because I think that I would be completely plastered after about 15 minutes! Knowing who the moderator is, and the ‘special guests’ who will be present, this debate will probably go down in history as the absolutely worst one ever…and the first two were bad enough!

2. Speaking of debates, I wonder why some people convince themselves that they engage in ‘debates’ on their blogs, FB pages, or Twitter feeds? There is no way to ‘win’ a debate online, even if you actually utilize a proper debating forum. A ‘proper’ debating forum, to me, is one which contains two people with opposing views, and one or two moderators, taking turns with their statements and rebuttals, face-to-face…with no interruptions or commentary from the respective audience until after the debate is over. Also, a debate should reach an audience with a basic interest, and knowledge, of whatever the debate topic is, it would seem. Making an argument in an echo chamber defeats the purpose of said argument, no? Online, presumably, a proper debate would be done via Skype or whatever other live-video-feed program exists out there. Still, Loki’s Wager will prevail in the long run!

3. I’m personally debating whether or not to pursue legal action against the company that put my computer together, or just not worry about it. I’m beyond done dealing with those clueless asshats, and I’m not the litigious sort – I’d rather just put my money into a brand-new rig and forget about those pricks. That’s the simplest and most cost-effective solution, I feel.

Finally, here are a couple of select clips for your enjoyment…have a great rest of the day and evening, everyone!

      The good thing about this debate is…it’s the last one! I watched it, and it met my low expectations. I’m glad that it’s over – down the home stretch, now.
      *sigh of relief*

    The art of debating is almost lost unfortunately. It calls for being well read, well informed articulating full sentences, with the deepest
    respect for the opponent. Quite a challenge these days.

    It’s much easier to hurl insults at each other on FB with very limited vocabulary.

    hurling insults at each other on FB.No intelligent life there

    I would of had both of them in sound proof booths.The mics would be turned off after the 2 minute period & that way nobody (Trump) could interrupt!
    The biggest impact will be felt in years to come.I see a three party system on the horizon.
    Good luck!

      There is already a three-party / multi-party system in the States…unfortunately, most people in said parties don’t participate enough in the political process to get any notice or attention from a person such as myself. If a no-talent nobody like Kim Kardashian can get millions of followers, than I think that any serious third-partier could do the same. It used to be called “Grass-roots stumping” – getting out and earning votes by actually going out and speaking with people, not pandering with timed photo-ops.

      Otherwise, I don’t give the third-partiers much serious attention, since they don’t give politics any serious attention – they just jump out of the woodwork every four years, demanding votes because, “hey – I’m the alternative to the lesser of two evils!”
      They deserve as much consideration as they give…which is virtually nothing. Just my opinion on the matter!
