Realities Created, Maintained and Destroyed, WHILE-U-WAIT!

I think Dennis Kucinich is the last politician I have any respect at all for.

Here's the sort of thing any decent public servant should be saying.

(I hope Obama is paying attention).

Rule #1 applies

Someone (Named Timothy, Thanks Dewd) Mentioned  that my last post referenced "Sword of Truth".

I have to allow that I didn't know what he was talking about, so I did a bit of quick research (I love Wikipedia!) and discovered that "Sword Of Truth" is a series of books by Terry Goodkind the first of which is called "Wizard's First Rule". I had not in fact read these books, having come to the realization of Rule #1 all on my own by the simple expedient of watching my fellow humans for quite a long time, as well as examining my own inner workings. But I have to say, Goodkind's take on Rule #1 is pretty good, and more to the point, perfectly explains the situation in America today (on ALL sides).

So here is Terry Goodkind's read on Rule #1, taken from the book "Wizard's First Rule".

"Wizard's First Rule: people are stupid." Richard and Kahlan frowned even more. "People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."

 Pity the poor human. The main quality that makes us human is not speech, or tool making, it is the near infinite capacity for self delusion. Understand this and you will understand the greater part of history, politics and religion.

Rule #1 Applies!

Say goodby to the State of Michigan

Say hello to the new corporate Territories.

I try to not feel too bad about it, people here were gullible enough to elect someone like Snyder, even knowing what happened to Gateway Computers. So when they get what they deserve asked for, we should remember Rule #1.*






But I hate to see this happening. We have given up any semblance of a democracy, and when Snyder starts giving the State over to his buddies I hope the Tea Baggers are happy with their new corporate overlords. (Bunch of F^*@#*G idiots)

Flow

I am becoming quite the media personality (HA!)

I was invited back on the Diamond Hour to discuss the idea of flow, what it is and how to find it with my friend Steve Barnes. We were having so much fun we ran overtime. Take a listen.

The Latist Political Meme

"A public union employee, a tea party activist and a CEO are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it. The CEO takes 11 of the cookies, turns to the tea partier and says, "Watch out for that union guy he wants a piece of your cookie."
