It simply amazes me why I have so much trouble with Democrats. Maybe I should ask myself what does it take to be a Democrat because I just don’t qualify on so many levels. I don’t understand that they really are so much more wise and better than me. They all are infinitely smart, better looking, more hip, more cool, more aware of all things that are part of our world and they even know much better than I how best to spend my own money. My children are not capable of being educated by me, and more puzzling then all – why do they still permit me to even live.
Well that got me to thinking – something that is a cardinal sin for a Republican to start doing at any age when living under the intensely dogmatic doctrine of the Democrat lifestyle is to question why they do the things they do. It is almost like I am a female living in a Muslim world. Don’t talk, don’t let anyone see any part of you, dress as you are told, and permit democrats to screw you, rape you and kill you if you dishonor them. Gangs have the same rules like “respect me or you die.” I am sure liberal scientists are trying to perfect the talent of turning me into stone if I look at them. They even want to control whether I can apply for a tax exemption, practice my religion, specifically Christianity, or carry a gun for my own protection. And…… Oh, I need to get back to my thinking I began doing without permission.
I have been clueless and in a fog as to where all these elitist character traits come from. But then it began to clear up when I happened to watch, ironically, the TV program “Brain Games” on the National Geographic Channel. The discussion focused on how our brain actually helps us hide the fact that we are incompetent. Everyone knows that a college student, by the mere fact he or she was accepted to undertake classes of advanced learning at a prestigious university, has exceptional brain power and knows, or can reason beyond question the answer to just about anything. They are infinitely more capable of understanding the real meaning of life; far more than anyone beyond the age of 35 years. Their education is clearly so advanced that it debunks anything anyone has learned from the old school, old history, old age or old wisdom anyone claims to have cultivated. In fact, the elites claim everything these old folks know is the result of their “cult” mentality. The elites don’t adhere to cults; they are the epitome of enlightenment. What the program Brain Games surprisingly revealed is just about the complete opposite. The brains of young people are highly defective, deceptive and capable of thought that is infinitely beyond reason. They actually fool themselves. Their emboldened enlightenment is lacking a filament.
As soon as the show began, the program directors called upon a class of what looked like a pretty advanced group of college students. They were mostly leaning back in their seats with a remarkable air of confidence. Then the MC of the program indicated that most of them probably didn’t know how a zipper worked. Like magic, they all started playing with any zipper they could get their hands on starring at it as they pulled it up and down numerous times. The looks on their faces was astonishing. Those expressions clearly showed a heighten, or you might say enlightened state of entranced confusion. But then the MC interrupted them bringing them all back to an awakened state by asking them if they new how to draw a bicycle. That is when the lights of total confidence clicked back on and for the those college students, the light of intelligence suddenly burned out.
They were all asked to draw a functioning bicycle. There were 16 students. The producers, in their infinite wisdom knew in advanced what type of bicycles they were going to get, so they actually built bicycles ahead of time that would reflect the functionality depicted in the drawings that were forthcoming. They went outside and these students actually attempted to ride those bikes that fit their drawings. One person fell down immediately after take off. The front wheel was impossible to turn. What they actually found was that college student could only draw functioning bicycles 10% of the time. That means 90% of these intellectual powerhouses couldn’t do it. Wouldn’t that indicate that they were 90% abstract and 10% reality? Maybe it indicated that they were only capable of realism 10% of time. Or, maybe they had the potential of being unreasonable or unrealistic 90% of the time.
Well, that one example could have been an anomaly. How about two more examples. Next, each person was asked to select a range of numbers that would include the number of books in the Bible making up the Old Testament. They all were not able to come up with a range of numbers that included either the Protestant Version of 39 or the Catholic version of either 46 to 47. Since they didn’t know for sure, they all picked a range but one that was a much smaller range that did not include either of the actual numbers. They didn’t want to let on that they didn’t know the number or could even get close it. But their own brains, under their complete control, convinced them though, that their range of choice would be accurate. There interest in appearing intelligent overpowered their ability to reason. Pick 1 to 1000 and they would have met the test. But that choice would reveal that they really didn’t know something. So they fudged it.
The other example was where students with their advanced brain created an answer that just wasn’t really there. They were shown a train with 8 cars plus an engine and caboose. Each car had a different word painted on it. They were asked to memorize each word as the train slowly passed in front of them. Then they were shown another train with just 4 “different” words on it. The question was, which one of the 4 words was on the first train. Six students, all of them, guessed that the word “track” which was one of the 4 words on the second train was on the first train. It wasn’t. None of the 4 words were on the first train. The test proved these advanced brains take short cuts and supply false information that is accepted by the owner of the brain as true. The moral to this story is pretty interesting.
Our brains, including the most advanced brains in our society, can come up with the wrong answer. They can be manipulated into believing something is there when it is not – that something is true, but it is not. These young people are so confident that they know the answer that they will say they know it when they really don’t know. On the streets of New York, where the most advanced brains in our society can be found, the question was, “do you know what happened in Benghazi,” and many would say yes. Not just yes, but “YES, surely, absolutely, without question with total confidence radiating all over their face. But when asked what it was, they had no clue. They lied about knowing. The question is why do they do that. What is going on in their minds that causes them to lie? The “Brain Games” program called this phenomenon the “Illusion of knowledge.”
These folks are allowing themselves to be influenced by the power of persuasion. They pretend to know something when they didn’t. They use what is called a survival mechanism to make them feel like they are in control. They used their own brains to deceive themselves to the point where they created a state of overconfidence. They are confident their brains can come up with the right answer so much so that they don’t really need to use it that much except to seek out pleasures, to have fun, to enjoy the wonderful life someone else created for them. They want to take advantage of the intellectually advanced technical creations of others. But they do not have the time or the interest in pushing their brains to be productive in the same way. They are quite comfortable using their brains to seek out pleasure and folly. Why should they when they have all they need to have an amazingly pleasurable life. Creating things on your own is really hard. “If those others didn’t want us to enjoy their inventions, then they shouldn’t have invented them.” These brains want to escape reality. It is so much more fun. These brains are even so advanced and in control that they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can use drugs or binge drink without experiencing any adverse consequences. They are totally in control. It is like they are playing the card game called “Twenty-One and have an ace and king showing and they tell the dealer, “Hit Me!” Pun intended.
Then there are those who will vote for a person because they are certain he or she is the right person for them. So if a man says he is a Democrat, then I am convinced I am voting for the right person because I consider myself to be Democrat and Democrats always know better. But if I told you I was a Democrat but I really was a communist or socialist or born in Kenya or all three, then my advanced knowledge of life as I know it, would figure that out. So since I have no evidence to the contrary emanating from my brain of infinite advanced knowledge, I am totally confident I am voting for the right guy. And I am also totally confident that the word “Track” was on the first train and that I can draw a totally functioning bicycle. Well if that is the case, then you could be 90% wrong about a person you chose to be our president. By the way, is global warming really real? Do you really know for sure?
These same folks on the streets of New York, infinitely confident in themselves to come up with the right answer, couldn’t name who the Vice President of the United States was but were absolutely confident that the President was the absolute best choice beyond question, absolutely. Now that is scary. Many of them hadn’t even heard of the word Benghazi, didn’t know what happened there, didn’t kn0w that their own government-run IRS was targeting religious groups, individuals who contributed large sums of money to a conservative candidate of their choice, Tea Party applicants setting up organizations for nonprofit tax status and many other conservative entities who happened to voice dissatisfaction for our current president. The IRS asked some of these folks what books they read in their book club, who their donors were, and they even asked for a complete list of all their Facebook pages from all their members and their members’ families. The IRS can do that to normal citizens but it is a violation of privacy for our government to look at the Facebook page of a visa applicant who turns out to be a terrorist. Business owners who had only one audit in 30 years, were subjected to 3 audits and investigations by the Department Labor. Yes, their beloved government was doing this to its regular citizens. These folks on the streets of New York were not asked but I bet they were deathly against invasion of privacy as much as they are against the death penalty, and for the death of unborn children in the womb; which happens to be the exact same place they came from. If they were given a choice, they would not agree to their mother aborting them.
With the IRS scandal, the implication is that it is OK as long as Republicans aren’t permitted to do it. Or, it is OK because that is what Nixon did. Or, it is not OK and Republicans are just making that up. They don’t realize that Democrats, after the Nixon debacle, came up with numerous laws to make sure “this never happens again.” No one realized, you know, “Who knew” that those laws would only apply to Republicans; that Democrats could do it because it was best for our country, an even though we have existed for 200 years as a two party system, it would be best to be totally controlled by one party; my party. That way things would be just fine. No problems, no worries and I could then enjoy life texting and face-booking, drinking and drugging; to my hearts content. That is the kind of government that is best for us all. Isn’t it ironic that it was the IRS that leaked Nixon’s tax records so he could be accused of tax evasion. By the way, in case you didn’t know or couldn’t infer, Nixon was a Republican who also was accused of using the IRS to harass his opponents. Now that is not cool.
It really is necessary for college students to take history in the “progressive” classroom so they can be made aware of all the twisted history created out of whole cloth. The course should naturally be mandatory to support the advancement of perfected knowledge beyond illusion. These courses will finally correct all those misguided historians who fabricated tomes of misinformation for all the centuries of mankind’s existence. After all, we need the proper information that will set us all free from all the lies from the past. You know, so we are set free to be delusional, illusionary, in tune with our ultra-simplistic universe and as overconfident as is inhumanly possible. Reality is only real as long as we have clearly defined it as imaginary.
I am a Republican and I know who the Democrat Vice President is, but those Democrats who are most advanced in knowledge and wisdom, do not. I could be wrong here, but I am not smart enough to figure that out or even know better. I guess that is why I used to be Democrat and converted to being a Republican due to a complete lose of insanity. Let me thing about that!
By the way, free speech is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. And Democrats constantly claim that free speech is sacrosanct. But when someone went to the Yale campus with a clipboard and asked those passing by if they would help him out by signing a petition to do away with the First Amendment to the Constitution, he got many signatures. You see, if you are on a liberal campus and someone asks for help getting rid of something by signing a petition, they automatically assume it must be a great cause. The students could not connect with what that amendment was for. If a Democrat says we need to get rid of that amendment, they will follow like sheep. I guess there really is a degree of smartness so advanced that understanding “stupid” is be beyond them.
But how should I know, I am too old to be of any value at all in discerning what reality really is.
