Ok, so I though I would get you fellow temps opinions on Irrelevant Issues In Society (I.I.I.S.). I got this idea from seeing other fellow tempers rage over currently political/ideological discussions and though 'hmm I wonder what everyone else things on these issues'. These are the top (I.I.I.S.) I don't fully understand why people debate so often. 1. Marijuana Legalization - This debate has been going for over 30 years. Personally I don't give a dam what other people want to do with this drug, as long as they don't sell it to kids, or do anything exploitative with the drug I'm fine with it being legalized. Current states like Colorado are facing trouble in the Marijuana business sector because banks will not except money from these types of business. So they literally store millions of dollars underground, where no-one will (hopefully) find it, as an alternative to the bank. 2. Gay Marriage - I don't know why people would have any issues against this. In my opinion, whatever two men or women want to do with each other, as long as it is consensual and no one is getting harmed I feel like it shouldn't be an issue. Mind you, I am completely against, PDOA, (Personal Displays of Affection) regardless of what your orientation is. I don't think it should ever be right for someone to stop you in the middle of the street to tell you "hey please sign this paper to support gay-rights" or scream out their love for xXx (which unfortunately a lot of gay activist do and it makes them look like idiots who are disturbing the peace). There are so many more problems civil rights issues than this, like women and minorities. 3. Environmental Destruction - Let me speak on this, the only reason I've posted this here is because it shouldn't be a question of "Are we consuming more resources than the Earth can produce?" the fact is WE ARE CONSUMING MORE RESOURCES THAN THE EARTH CAN PRODUCE! But I don't know why the government lets it slide. Mind you, I've just recently become aware of this issue and have started significantly minding my energy consumption at home and purchased energy smart light bulbs. On top of that I've started recycling everything I possibly can that would otherwise go in the trash can. I even started gardening (you know worse case scenario their is a food shortage later on [which I hope there'll never will be]). Let me know: 1-Do you smoke? How do you feel about this? (I don't and I'm neutral) 2-Are you gay/or bisexual? How do you feel about this? (neither, as long as people keep their sex lives private I'm fine) 3-What do you think the future holds for our environment and resource consumption? (I think we're doomed, but you can see awareness now in order to not suffer as much later on) Let me know your thoughts on the above matters and your own. Lastly; please be respectful of other people's opinions.
