The Right to Use Bullshit

by James Jett

In conversations in the pass, when someone say something incorrect or have no benefit in the discussion, I would answer Bullshit. Meaning your words have nothing to do with the conversation we are having presently. Many times, someone in the group will take issue with the word, and tell me that intelligent people know better retorts.

The word was never used loosely, just when I would need an answer to better understand the speaker and instead of answering my question they utter more bullshit.  Like all words, the word cause change in the meeting, people become more exact in the statements and answers and the people and the organization reaped the benefits. The need to use the word decreased and “stop dodging the question” will get the discussion by on track. And I feel good about that, although I only used the word twice in my life, I only needed to think it, and the meeting provided a better understand.

Years later,   justification came when a Professor (I don’t  remember her name) was on TV promoting her book and she said the word, talked about how a man in Germany or England had asked her to debate him because he argue that the Holocaust did not occur and she said she refused to debate that Bullshit. (I agree) She said she talked with another Professor, a man, and he told her to use the word when it applies. And oh-by-the-way the book was selling well, but she had already promised all proceeds would go to the college.

Bull-shit: The American Heritage Dictionary: B.S.  1.foolish, insolent talk, nonsense v.

When I listen to the politics  to-day and media trying to get the answer they prefer, not the answer the person give, its make me wonder, is this helpful or just bull-shit?

Bill O”Reilly rebutted Spike Lee when Mr. Lee said that violent crime in America is the worst in the world, by sighting the eight years stats. For two-day, I search the media to  hear anyone questioning Mr. Tavis Smiley who said that Christian kill people everyday, implying  that the death ratio is the same between Christians and Muslim. Geraldo interview Tavis, but asked him nothing about that statement. It seem people can come on TV and make statement and no one will challenge them if the statement is untrue. unless you are listening to The O’Reilly Factor, on at 8pm, weekdays here in Shaker Heights, Ohio.

My conclusion, it’s a lot of bull-shit
