Davis, you're exactly right. If you don't like the way some people act differently in this country you should get the hell out. I think you would do well a place like Iran where girls can't wear skirts that show thier vagina, there's no need for birth control pills in highschool cause you'd get stoned to death for getting pregnant without being married, there is no freedom, and everyone shares the exact same superstitious beliefs about god.

Sorry kid, that's not how this whole 'freedom' thing works. I think people should stand and at least respect the flag BUT its their right not to and I'm not going to become 'Mr Fascist' and force them to do it "or leave"Originally Posted by granby140
If you don't like the freedoms given to people in this country, then WHY DONT YOU LEAVE?!?

Wisdom here...Originally Posted by toughchick401
Age DOES have a huge effect on maturity and immaturity... Why? Because your perception of maturity changes as you get older, you begin to understand WHAT maturity really means. At 17 years of age, you havent had enough life experiences to even understand the definition... hell at 20-21 most people are just starting to understand. I'm about to hit 25 and I know I've got a long ways to go
There are always those that ARE mature at young ages... my sister is a great example. 22 years old, married to someone she's in love with (and he's a great responsible, intelligent guy)... she got her Nursing degree with a 3.5GPA at the #2 nursing school in the USA, got married a week later, then bought a house 1.5 months afterwards with her own money. But she's immature in other ways... there are lots of different types of maturity. Some about fiscal responsibility, emotional maturity; hell getting up on time in the morning and getting to work is maturity... Its a lot more complex than young people think (I'm sure there's lots more to know, because I'm not exactly old myself )

I believed this up until about my 20th year. Then I took an objective look at the adults i know and then I realized maturity is a trait, not a characteristic earned with age.Originally Posted by Bean
Almost as if maturity is synonymous with civility and ignorance. Some people are just never civil, some can never accept the truth, and some a combination of both.
Yes, there is a small positive correlation between maturity and age, but, when you're basically an adult, it should NOT be the deciding factor. Not by any means. I know plenty of 18 year old kids who are more mentally "mature" than their so called "elders".
You show maturity in your decisions, your ability to accept the truth, and your ability to treat other civily. Based on that criteria, I would say there most certainly IS NOT a large enough correlation between age and maturity to say the generalization holds true once a person is at or near his/her adult years.
And, dont let yourself be fooled into thinking being seasoned to life is a prerequisite to maturity. A total spaz can have dealth with, for example, trying to make the bills while living week to week. A person can have dealt with that situation, and done so wrongly, and in an immature fashion, whereas if you stuck some 18 year old kid in the same situation, he may handle it much better.
Point..if your entire argument is based off of someones age, its not only weak, its baseless and entirely embarassing.
10-26-2005, 02:00 AM
My entire argument is not based off someone's age I never said it was a requirement... but most of the time >age = >maturity... ESPECIALLY between ages of 18-21 vs 25-30... at this point people get out of college, they finish their masters, and/or they start a family, etc... things that 'normally' go along with a certain age range that add up to the potential maturity factor.Originally Posted by kwyckemynd00
But the point I'm trying to make, is you're not really qualified to call yourself mature... I'm sure at 20 years old you thought you were pretty smart because you could reflect on something and no one else couldnt.
I dont think you understand HOW 'baseless and entirely embarassing' a child sounds when they claim they're 'mature'. Mature people don't care enough about it to really give two ****s. And they definitely don't go around trying to justify their maturity either.
I'm not going to start slinging mud here, but I could.... It's quite tempting, actually.
But I'm mature, and I don't let people get to me like that
My biggest point, is a person is very immature if they think someone should 'get out' of a country if they are merely acting out their rights written in by law.

#1 : why do U mr. beano think that you are "qualified" to label kwyche as mature or not? please tell me . i can tell you by my personally knowledge that he is older than his years and has achieved alot in his life mentally, acedemically and eventually finacially. im extremely proud of him! EVERYONE that meets him soon realizes that he is a very knowledgable and put together individual. if you havent noticed, even his posts around the boards, are well constructed and usually have ample references, unlike most people who argue and have no idea what they are arguing about!Originally Posted by Bean
#2 kwyche NEVER said that he thought it was mature if someone said "'get out' of a country if they are merely acting out their rights written in by law." i know he doesnt believe that at all SO DONT SHOVE WORDS INTO HIS MOUTH
#3 get off your high mr. powerman box and quit thinking you are so much smarter and mature than people. thank you and have a nice day!

And THIS ladies and gentlemen is why significant others shouldn't be posting at the same places where their counterpart belongs.Originally Posted by Mrs. Gimpy!
Let kwycke agrue his own battles (not that there WAS a battle) and stay out of it.
10-28-2005, 03:54 PM
its okay baby
I don't think he was referring to "me" as saying "I" support kicing someone out of the country. He was referencing davisville...he said that.
10-28-2005, 04:03 PM
im just a tad defensive when people are rude to the person who i love more than anything and everything. i know kwyche can argue his own, i dont need to be told that.Originally Posted by houseman

Chill. She didn't say anything mean, bad, wrong, etc.
You being an ass isn't fixing anything. All it does is make you an ass.

And I said, yes there is a correlation, but it’s a lame excuse for an argument.Originally Posted by Bean
When I said that, I was referencing “toughchick401” who refused to say anything else other than “you’re young and immature”.
I never called myself mature. But, if I was asked to label myself, I’d say that I’m damn mature. I’m defined by my actions and there are few I’ve made that I’d regret for many years.But the point I'm trying to make, is you're not really qualified to call yourself mature... I'm sure at 20 years old you thought you were pretty smart because you could reflect on something and no one else couldnt.
I don’t know if you understand how ridiculous it sounds calling someone 2 years younger than yourself a child. Who is trying to justify their maturity? I just said that determining someones argument is worthless based on their age is lame and in most cases, I’d assume it was just a method of dodging the argument because that person had no retort.I dont think you understand HOW 'baseless and entirely embarassing' a child sounds when they claim they're 'mature'. Mature people don't care enough about it to really give two ****s. And they definitely don't go around trying to justify their maturity either.
Sling away…I mean, if its so tempting, I’d hate to see you blunt your temptation for poor defenseless kwycke.I'm not going to start slinging mud here, but I could.... It's quite tempting, actually.
Something I agree with. However, that was ONE post by davisville. And, that wasn’t necessarily a case of immaturity, but rather one of lack of education on the matter. I see some people have a hard time distinguishing the two. How did he respond when people said “you can’t just go kicking people out of the country for things like that?” His response in that situation would be a better indicator of his maturity level. As I said before, you show maturity in your decisions, your ability to accept the truth, and your ability to treat others civilly.My biggest point, is a person is very immature if they think someone should 'get out' of a country if they are merely acting out their rights written in by law.
He made a few other posts, some of which were pretty good, and some people decided to write him off or ignore his posts because of his age. That’s ridiculous.
Hell, this whole maturity thing is irrelevant. An immature person can bring a good argument, too. And, if they do, the argument should be treated as it is…a good argument. It’s the fact that an argument was ignored because of someones age that is just absolutely ridiculous.
Point (to all): if davisville makes a good argument, please respond with something reasonable. He a good kid.He may have ideology issues with some of us, myself included, but I don't ignore what he says because of his age. Rather, I'd recommend doing the "mature" thing and educated him on the issues. From there, you can sling "mature and immature" around like there is tomorrow based off of how he responds to "facts" and how he interacts with you.
If he lied about his age in his profile, this issue never would have popped up...think about it. If that's the case, then age is an irrelevant issue.

This reminds me of the past 2 elections that were almost both 50/50. Its sick that the nation is that divided.
A nation that is divided cant stand. Is it her right not to stand for the flag, sure. Is it her righ to drop out, sure. But, if more and more people start doing this, we will (as a country) fall apart.

She didn't add any value to the thread with that post she made! She got defensive about someone (apparently) taking shots at you. She got defensive because she is your fiance. NO OTHER REASON.Originally Posted by kwyckemynd00
You can handle your own arguments without your fiance trying to "have your back".
10-29-2005, 03:17 PM
They can but the problem comes in when a pattern has been established in that said person has shown their arguments to be flawed because of their immaturity, lack of education or any other factor which would was used originally to discredit them.Hell, this whole maturity thing is irrelevant.

It's called living in the real world and not many people have the ability, at first thought, to look past the person's previously lacking arguments to acknowledge that their current argument is worthy. Apparently you have that ability. Cudo's.

i guess you are adding "value" as you like to call it to this thread by being a complete ******* and yell at me for taking shots and then by showing by example of how i should act, you take shots at me. riiiiggghhtt.....
