TABACCO: I got into a heated Argument with a good friend this morning about whether or not Jamaicans are considered “West Indians”. This is a Factual Assertion, which can be LOOKED UP!
You may bet on whether a “Fact” is True or Not, but you should NEVER ARGUE PROVABLE FACTS – it’s POINTLESS!
I hung up first; then she returned the call to call me “Evil” and hung up on me. Whether or not I am Evil is open to debate – I’m certain she can find lots of folks, who would agree with her. Whether or not I am Evil is Argumentative and “Fair Game”! But I looked the disputed “Fact” up, and this is what I found:
There is NO SIN in being Wrong or Incorrect once in awhile. We are ALL Guilty of that including Tabacco! I could have been Wrong in this instance. It just happens that in this case I wasn’t. But arguing won’t settle an argument like that.
The SIN is in arguing FACTUAL ASSERTIONS, which can be looked up!
I was wrong to hang up the telephone. But we were wasting time arguing, and I responded in an inappropriate manner. For that I apologize to my friend profusely! I was Wrong to hang up!
I already published on this subject but apparently my Wyandanch Readers don’t hop over to my other Blog? Maybe this time you will.
Arguments, Disputes & Debates – When To AVOID Arguing Because No Debate Is Necessary Or Sufficient! Arguing That Which Can Be “Looked Up” is Pointless And A Waste Of Time! If You Argue Foolishly Or Argue With Fools, What Does That Make You?
Argue things, which are open to dispute! Don’t argue things, which can BE LOOKED UP!
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!
