503. March 11th…Opinions are like appendix…or tonsils…not everyone has them…

“Outside of Season” 2011

“First, let me make it very clear, poor people aren’t necessarily
killers. Just because you happen to be not rich doesn’t mean you’re
willing to kill.” George W. Bush

she had a root exposed…and due to her sensitivity…any breath in or out…caused…excruciating pain…so her only option to avoid the pain was simple….”don’t breath”….

today…you can no longer have an opinion…or at least one that doesn’t conform to the guidelines that ensures everybody within impact won’t be bothered by what you think…so keep your mouth shut…your opinions to yourself and smile more…nod your head in agreement…and hope…your head nodding is not misconstrued as perhaps placating…mockery…disrespectful or worse…words are added to the head nodding…and now you are what you are not….and everybody knows it…

Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct; both forms commonly abbreviated to PC) is a term which denotes language, ideas, policies, and behavior seen as seeking to minimize social and institutional offense in occupational, gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, religious belief, disability, and age-related contexts, and doing so to an excessive extent.”

I didn’t write this…thank Wikipedia..”Thank you Wikipedia”…and I have to say I’m a little pissed that there was no mention to eye color…past lives…possible reincarnation…or people that eat mostly soup…

you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time“…there is a debate as to who originally said this…some say Honest Abe…did…others think P.T. Barnum…did for Honest Abe…and still others think Mark Twain did…so who the hell knows…and really who cares but…the point behind this statement…much like anything these days is the level of possible interpretations…and how you get enough people believing in something and shit happens…look at the guys in the Hale Bopp comet cult….space blankets and bunk beds…mass suicide…all because somebody had an interpretation that somehow made more sense than the other guys…

“what are you getting at”…you ask…well…I think it’s terrific…we have arrived at a place where no one will overtly say…seem…look…smell…appear…write…act… gesture… or even remotely indicate anything offensive to anyone else…on the planet…yet covertly…our conversations are very different…we talk among those who share our views about the injustices of situations….people and how things really seem to be revolving in and around our worlds …yet make sure we can smile in a nano second…in the event…we have to…just in case…

it is not only unrealistic but absurd…to think our opinions are pasty and bland like oatmeal…there are certain people…groups of people…types of people…political people…religious people…genders…colors…races…people’s accents…their geographies…who they sleep with…jobs…earnings…their spouses…medical conditions… their ages… abnormalities…differences…the food they buy…cars they drive…clothes they wear…hair styles…music…who they love…and for what ever reason somebody…somewhere doesn’t like something about them….and they don’t like something about somebody else…who doesn’t like something about somebody else….and they too don’t like something about somebody else…and it’s valid…maybe not true…but true enough to be valid to someone…and enough so…probably more than one person aligns themselves with that thinking…

The law of expectation says: What we believe to be true, we expect to receive and dismiss alternative realities…in other words…you are what you eat fundamentally…once we have seen a perceived truth to be completely untrue…we have the choice to believe it is a new truth or an alternative reality…and adopt it or dismiss it…but that’s kind of like molding dog food into the shape of a turkey for Thanksgiving…and expecting something different than….dog food…yet with practice and constant new truths presenting themselves and negating anchored beliefs we can make different truths reality…

so next time you’re having a Bbq…don’t just invite your like-minded friends…rent a bus…a big bus…put a sign on the side that reads…”Giant BBQ and beer at me house…drive all over your town…and pick up anybody who’ll get on and get to know them a little…have a few beers..some bbq…a few laughs….you never know…this could be your new daughter in law…or husband…or business partner…or crime fighter…or…………..hero….

“Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.”  Albert Einstein

  1. I understand your point of view. But many have become so polarizing in their views I’m tempted to run them over with the bus.

    As for the appendix remark, I think their resemblance to actual opinions is this: perhaps they once served a purpose but now are completely useless except for creating excruciating pain. And when one explodes inside you, it can kill you.
