if you have read any of my posts.. you will see that i engage in poking and prodding and being over the top… all with a purpose though… make you think. make you angry.. make you react.. make you laugh…

actually.. i do like to offend.  i am very imposing per my wife..  cause i exude aggression and intimidation and my frown and scowl not only stop my kids in their tracks but grownups too…  (poor waitress at pf changs… could barely make eye contact… after making us wait 15 minutes before taking our order).  i just wear my emotions on my sleeve and i am going to let you know if i am not happy about something. yeah.. sometimes it is over stupid stuff.. or road raging.. actually… i call it aggressive driving.. to prevent people that have maybe slighted me on the road.. or not following proper road etiquette… i will block speeders in.. and hold them from passing..

it is like one of those w.w.j.d moments… what whould jesus do? what would jesus blog? what would jesus rant about?

are you conforming to whatever is pushed at you from both left and right sides?  do you conform to your safe church going habit?  do you just pray your 3 sec prayer before you eat?  do you get offended because it really offends you.. or because society tells you that you should be offended?

i poke fun of my race, my people, our culture, our speech… cause i think that more over the top you go.. it brings the median line up a bit… on what is commonplace and acceptable.

i am in it to offend.. and if i have not offended you.. then i am not doing a good enough job… then you think like i do.. just afraid to say it…

i generally try to follow up with people that leave comments that are contrary to whatever i have posted… a lot of times.. i have the same viewpoint.. but want them to be able to justify their position….   i have had extended exchanges with some… but a lot of times.. they reach a point where they can no longer fight back… again.. even if i agree with them.. i want them to do the research and have an informed viewpoint.. and i will toss them the opposing side.. as that helps me form my options as well..

be offended.  but know why you are…
