DOUBLE THINK





Oh it's fun
to take the truthy truth,
turn it upside-inside out
and down,
make righty-right stuff
wrongy-wrong.



Think:
     Sanford -- newly elected congressman -- North Carolinians can count on.

     John Boehner, speaker of the house -- he is helping the country solve its problems.

     Obama -- race-prejudiced President whom we trust, just can't be trusted. 

     Womens' issues, gay issues -- they're just about solved.

     Gun control and immigration -- they are going to be solved.

Other reversible truths abound. My favorites: There's no real problem with the weather,  Automobiles have been vastly improved   If you're not sure about a symptom, call your Doctor, and... 

There's Time Warner's brain-washing "enjoy better" when you can't get your favorite channels anymore; daily-nightly sexual potency pills that you MUST take if you want to be sure you can "do it," and, my goodness of course, two pain killers are better than eight, and...

The latest new AB exercises, butt exercises, lose weight, and rub-in creams that guarantee comfort for up to sixteen hours.  Click the link, and buy -- you might cry when you realize it's mostly a lie, but you won't die -- with double think, trouble is solved, dissolved.      

Take a look at this video -- these two guys -- are they telling lies?  Will you rush and buy it, apply it, with a roller brush?

I had to bite my tongue with my response on this one, especially for the cream placed on body parts which one wants to accelerate the growth :)~

Critical thinking needs to be taught in our educational system. Making judgments and giving opinions are okay we all do it but understanding clearly just what your opinion is based is important too. Em, this is a thought provoking article you've written. Love and Hugs, H. xxxooo

I'm just standing on the rock waiting for the wind to blow, seeds to grow and I won't quit. I have hoped anyway, even if it's false hope. The delusion of that can help me towards the infinite silence; or, The Cadillac Ranch at least; maybe? What I've learned is that nobody is interested in what is true. They like a good story but the bare bones and hideous facts are to turn away from and just ignore, for the most part. It's not all too much is it?

BRILLIANT, Em! Oh yes, the "truth" is in the presentation, isn't it?

Kind of makes me think, "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" from "The Wizard of Oz."

Again, you have illustrated why artists are so important--we stop to look at things, and then share our observations with others. Hopefully, they will then look for themselves.
