STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES.
We are all born stupid, but one must work hard to remain stupid. Benjamin Franklin
There are a few things about dealing with stupid people that can really take some of us to a dark place, especially me, but I have a little more patience when it comes to the ignorant and even more when it comes to the retarded.
The problem is some of us are prone to label a stupid person as being ignorant and or retarded. The truth is, the ignorant are lacking in education and the retarded have some type of mental disability, so that cancels out stupidity. In other words, they can’t help it.
Stupid people are lacking in knowledge by choice, often refusing to change their outlandish thoughts in the face of the truth. In most cases, this can easily be corrected if the choice is made to do so. Instead, the stupid most time makes the decision to be or pretend to be uninformed and or unaware, including those who don’t give a damn. The sad part is most times its to fight a cause that has no basis except for personal gain and or putting others down.
For those who want to fight us on everything, Webster’s Dictionary explains stupid as dull, foolish, senseless, and lacking meaning or sense: insane or pointless. It goes on to explain ignorant as lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned, misinformed or just plain old unaware. And the retarded as having a delay in mental development or progress. At times I believe it better to be retarded or ignorant than to be stupid.
Bertrand Russell tells us, The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt; and may I add the fact that stupid people are brief and artless, with intelligence that hides inside of them. In my opinion, that’s stupid, but I will continue to try to help the stupid with what I know, although I feel as though the ignorant need me more because the stupid really don’t care what I think or say.
To say the least, I have issues with stupidity including, Stupid is putting our most important decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.
Some of us may try to act as if we don’t know these people, but denying what we do know to be true is really stupid; What can I say other than that’s what stupid people do. Sooooooooooooo! To be fair, let’s just acknowledge the fact that most people do stupid things, but if we don’t regret or show some type of remorse for the worse of the stupid things we do, then we are really stupid and on course to remain that way.
We can help ourselves if only we would stop being stupid, stupid and Forgive, but a word to the wise is to never forget. But more importantly, Stop following stupid people, they are not built for leadership…
Now that we know there are all types of stupid, the one that really irks me is when others want to shut the stupid down. I want to know who they are so I can have a heads up on what they are saying, or enough sense to run like hell if needed… But the worst kind of stupid, in my opinion, is trying to be what society wants you to be instead of being yourself; that is if you’re not a menace to society. If you’re clean, then I say go for your personal best.
I hate to admit this, but oftentimes I don’t answer questions because some people’s level of ignorance leaves me speechless. To prove my point, add stubbornness. Stupidity and stubbornness are obstacles that are almost impossible to overcome as if life isn’t tough enough, but it gets tougher if you’re stubborn and you know it. That attitude only makes life more complicated for those with intentional stupidity.
Take for instance you know God is Real and Reading is Fundamental, but for you, Books are as useful as a mirror is to a blind person, and God is to be used only as an accessory, with a cosmetic makeup undertone. Something is wrong and maybe you should take off that clown mask and start believing in something that’s not as stupid as your attitude, and stop changing the wording from something that’s true, just to make it fit some unintelligent outlook without regards to the facts…
To be honest, I have a feeling most stupid people believe in God to a point, (the problem) so once they sign off on something they will stand their ground regardless of a wrong or right position. It seems as if in their mind, change is just too much, and loyalty is used as an excuse to remain stubborn while defending false information and Pride is at the helm, making it almost impossible to back down. Grit up your loin and do it anyway.
I don’t know about you but I have always been a leader. So I say let the stupid be stupid, then maybe I can lead them around using a nose ring. At lease I would lead them straight to the truth. ; )
Look, being stupid is one thing but staying stupid sounds like a lot of missed opportunities to me. If I am as stupid as I know some tend to be, I may have to rethink all the stupid thoughts I know are stupid in order to obtain a better life, but that’s just me, you do you.
It’s Something To Think About.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
