“Ignorance VS Stupidity” A Rant in of Itself

DISCLAIMER: To be perfectly honest, this is not going to be one of those blogs for the faint of heart and soul. Nor is it going to be appealing to those of you that are bleeding heart liberals. I never want to be considered to be on one side or the other when it comes to politics. Yet I do not now, never have, and never will, side with those that wish to take the worlds problems onto their shoulders and then babysit them. I am more of the “let’s figure out the problems and get them solved to strengthen the worlds resolve” type. I have mentioned sometime ago that I do not baby myself, nor do I intend to do so with anybody else. I would be the doctor that may get questioned on his bedside manner while being revered for his great results.

Now that I have that out-of-the-way here goes.

I was at work the other day and it appeared to me the question of the day should be; which is worse ignorance or stupidity. Just because I was at work does not mean I am indicating that I believe all my co-workers to be either. It is, however, a thought that comes to me while trying to do my job. Not so sure what that should tell you about me. I do seem to have higher expectations than most. Not considering myself to be God’s gift to the working class, I do have a problem with the work ethic of others. Not all others mind you, it is just more and more that list does appear to grow.

So, which is worse ignorance or stupidity. Ignorance it would seem breeds stupidity. The more ignorant a person is the more stupid he/she seems to get. For the record I view stupidity as: “the act of learning anything and not caring enough to let it soak in.” Whereas ignorance is: “not having learned anything in the first place.”

Disclaimer II: For the record nothing gets on my nerves more, and makes me angrier than my own acts of stupidity or ignorance.



About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
