Things that are bullshit
 
In your opinon what things are bullshit, I'll put some options but be free to add your own. By bullshit I mean just totally not true, full of pointless waffle that means nothing etc etc. Note, let's not talk religion as that is a different thread that has been gone over many times - and disscussing it will run over all discussion of other things that are bullshit.

Oops, I meant to make it so you could vote for several things, but unfortunately failed, you'll have to vote for what is the most bullshit.

I voted new age / spirituality

Why would psychiatric medication be considered bullshit?

xeberus 11-27-2009 04:05 AM

I went with politics.

But there were a lot of others on there as well. Like business management, which is what I do. Completely unnecessary unless you work with socially under developed immature people or "sheep". Sure your employees need a direction, updated information and effective communication but I think for the most part its bullshit and far overdone.

Why is global warming on there? For completeness. Unless anyone else thinks psychiatric medicine is bullshit - I'm not going to argue it on my own...
Alright it doesn't do anything good, I've known crazy people, they are worse on the pills. My cousin in law (but I know him quiet well) tried to kill himself while on medication, he is worse on than off. Most counselors, and others I've known who work with the crazy/unhappy say the medication doesn't work.

I should have put criminal rehabilitation in the list too.

you could actually have some fun with this thread and every week have a new poll where you can list off 5 to 10 things that some people may think of as BS and have them forum vote on which one they think is the most BS ..just a thought

I voted for Affirmative Action. To me it is bullshit because it simply causes people who don't have the necessary skills or expertise to be put in high rank positions. The direct result is chaos, because these people don't know what they are doing.

I am referring to high profile positions in the public and private sectors.

I have seen a company go under, or at least struggeling to provide a service due to Affirmative Action.

It is just BS. And it is just another form of racism IMHO.

Damn, I missed global warming.

Toxie 11-27-2009 11:16 AM

I chose Global Warming, not because it is by itself b.s, but because of the b.s it generates. It forces civilians to spend more money to fatten large companies' pockets. I'll take for example the whole plastic bag issue in Canada. My family eats a lot and so every time we go grocery shopping(which is about once a week, depending), we usually fill up mama's v70's trunk. Up until a year ago, plastic bags were complimentary from whichever store we used. Now, we have to pay 0.10$ for each. Not a considerable sum, but it adds up. Everywhere, people are bitching about going "green" (not the kind of green I'd like :P) and this plastic bag thing was part of it, yet grocery stores leave their lights on all night. Isn't that contributing to global warming? Why not penalize the large companies that actually have an impact on the environment instead of civilians who already spend way too much on taxes??? /rant

I had to go with Global warming...do I think we need to take care of our environment? Of course, but this is just a way for companies to gouge the average citizen when they do more to destroy the planet than any group of people do... :thumbsdown:
