They think by doing this it releases them from any guilt. Of course you have to have a conscience to have any guilt, but I guess they think they do. It takes away credibility, they don’t have to play by any rules of order. Though they suggest they do. Which means lying is acceptable. We’ve seen that from Adam Schiff and Nadler both. (by Arlin Report/Arlin Luttrell) May Gob Bless America and guide us through a new year!
Who is Nadler without the vote of the people to make this decision? Does he think he is God? Who does he think he is – he has no authority to make this move. No more God in the People’s House. Democrats have removed it from”swearing in” – in front of the House Democrats/Republicans. The […]KOMMONSENTSJANE – DEMOCRATS REMOVE; SO HELP ME GOD – POOF – GOD IS GONE. — kommonsentsjane
Since I am a follower of politics and civics and often write my opinion on the subjects, particularly current events, I woke this morning not really wanting to write or speak on anything political. Why do I feel that way I asked myself. So why? Other than sometimes you just need a break from your daily routine, what other reason could there be? I don’t think in my case it is due to dumbing-down. I believe I am beyond that.
I grew up in a time we were taught civics, current events and studied the U.S. and state constitutions (Missouri) in high school. You had to pass both tests to move on. In college, as a Political Science major, we did have a lot of book learning but got mostly lectured on what the professors wanted us to know, which was their interpretation of nearly everything. Interestingly, my grade point average in my major was lower than the other subjects I studied (C average). Psychology subjects (B+). Yep, I may have missed my calling. Except, I may be interrelating the two. Their is definitely psychology to politics, I see little politics in psychology.
So, is my lack of interest today due to being worn down? I believe today’s government/elected officials on the national level in particular may have a wearing-down process. The current impeachment inquiry hearings is a perfect example. Everything we hear, is repeated and repeated like a broken record. It just keeps spinning as it is never turned off (spinning, two versions of spinning here applies). The American public does get tired of it. Too, if you hear something over and over, you (may) tend to believe it. That’s one aspect of psychology in/of politics………get in your head by wearing you down. It is different than the dumbing-down process, keeping knowledge away/keeping us ignorant.
Just look at many of the young protesters today. They know not what they protest. They have little to no knowledge. Its just what they’ve been led to believe; not an idea, just a person. Hate Trump! Why? They can’t tell you why, except he talks mean. Not bad, just mean, listen to their own language. Where’d they learn it? As my father would say…… “take your bar talk somewhere else!”. Oh yeah, he told me that once……..or twice.
So, lets be blunt, dumbing-down (and it is a designed process, this ain’t no accident) is to keep us ignorant. Now I know many will be “offended” by that word, but it is a meaningful term.
definition of Ignorant
lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man, lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics. uninformed; unaware, due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.
So, it isn’t all your fault. No I am not calling you, the reader of this post ignorant. If your reading my blog you aren’t. Most any way, but they have been dumbing-down our children for decades now. They don’t teach what we from my generation were taught. They only teach what they want us to know now. Its been that way for a long time.
Let us not get wore down. They’ll slip whatever they want past us if we do. To be honest, we’re smarter than they are. Who is they? You know who I am talking about. I said we’re smarter than they are. We now have those dumbed-down in the ruling positions. I avoided saying ruling class.
Take a break when needed. Then return aware. Use your voice………speak up, write-up, keep them in their place, remove them with our votes. We have much work to do. Not all are bad……..but it is overwhelming how much ignorance shows. The scary part, much is by design and some know exactly what they are doing. The Deep State is real.
They’ll never wear me down.
You don’t need to be 6’3″ tall and weigh 250 lbs. to be President of the United States. Being big, strong and physically fit like Arnold can have an intimidating advantage, but it certainly isn’t a qualifying requirement. Other characteristics are more vital, like brains, ability to think logically, sincerity, knowledgeable of domestic and world matters go along way. HOWEVER!
Does appearance matter, yes even size? Last evening while occasionally dropping in on the Democratic debate, one thing stood out to me. Elizabeth Warren with her tiny physic despite her speaking and debating experience looks meek compared to all the others. While Warren may have fared better than the rest on stage with the tongue, her ability to speak may be her greatest asset. Lots of people can speak, ramble on for hours but have little to no substance. Even I can speak (and write) and say absolutely nothing. Elizabeth comes out with a new policy nearly everyday, makes it brief but as most candidates NEVER SAY HOW!
Backing off from interruptions and multiple people speaking at once comes from being an experienced well trained debater. Let the other people shoot themselves in the foot. When it comes down to one-on-one, it will be more difficult even for Warren. Eventually, she’ll need more substance……some substance.
On the big stage, an international stage…… will meekness matter? While Warren may not be meek vocally, that physical appearance (tiny and meek) may be taken advantage of by others. We will see if her own co-candidates learn to take advantage. It appeared she came on strong but then faded (gee I actually agree with something from MSNBC) when others on stage got louder.
This was my impression of Warren, okay she can talk……..but wow she looks small, very, very small. Does size matter?
My thoughts on politicians thinking process …. I can’t see many capable of thinking “outside the box”. I’d just like to see some thinking inside. Just a little common sense would go a long way.
I know right, everything is fake these days, fake news, fake this, fake that. So many lies. For the most part the mainstream news media, even with their political rants, don’t use vulgarity. They’d possibly lose their jobs. Some have off camera used profanity and been caught however. They can say what they wish then…….and nobody really cares. I refuse to mention names. They are attention seekers.
Then there are these people who go on Twitter and other social mediums to rant and rave, declaring themselves as activists for “the people”. They can not do so without using F… this and S…t on/with this and other vulgar words, that were once upon a time forbidden to use on TV and radio. They believe they are clever, and that they put up a great argument for their cause, a cause they can not sit down and rationally explain. These self-righteous, phony activists, always come out of the woodwork when there is a catastrophic event, such as the recent mass shootings. F…k the NRA……they will scream, then, nothing………just F…. the NRA. Really? That is it? These people can not sit down and make a sensible statement, an argument…….they can not debate without being obscene. The vulgarity is their point…….their attention phrase. Like I said, I refuse to mention their names, you’ve all seen and heard them. Some are TV and Big Screen celebrities. Some are just punks who are trying to become celebrities. They are talent-less jerks who think their filthy mouth is the fastest road to fame.
This is where we have come, a vulgar, poorly educated, immoral society. Most of us can carry on serious and even enjoyable conversations, whether about “How was your day honey?” or discussions about gun control or abortion, the economy etc. etc., without being nasty. Many of us can even put up a good argument, one way or the other. But these F…this and F… that people, have no real cause, EXCEPT ATTENTION. Would you want them representing you or your position on social issues important to you? Do you want them on the streets protesting something dear to your heart with a megaphone shouting out obscenities or knocking in your door with your wife/or kids home alone? They can not sit down, and rationally, intelligently present themselves in a CIVIL manner. But hey, a former presidential candidate and federal office holder said it was okay to do just that.
Dumbing down of America! This behavior, has become normal for so many. The education system is part of the problem. Liberal colleges and universities? Go sit in on some of these classes. Even back in the seventies, I had professors who could not get through the hour with out the F bomb.
Society, the decline of…. We can not have civil, responsible, serious conversation without isolating these moronic attention seekers. Unfortunately they are all over, many are in our Congress.
If you have an issue dear to your heart and you want to use your voice to do something about it, present your case in a civil tone. Be sincere, rational and argue/debate in an intelligent manner. You may not reach us all, but you’ll be heard by someone. That’s a start.
