CNN Exposed

First heard about this video on Rush Limbaugh’s show. Definitely worth a look-see.

Make sure you check out the comments too.

Cry and Howl

Hey folks, check out this little tid-bit! Now, anyone with any sense can see the stunning amount of bias and hostility towards President Trump. I mean the guy can’t catch a break from fake news, lies and negativity from the major media. It really chaps my ass when I see the media report stuff like 22 million people will be left without health care and thousands of people are going to die. These are nothing but out right lies and they know it. But what it does is create doubt and fear in the people because they aren’t going to research anything for themselves, they’ll just believe what’s told them. Anyway, didn’t mean to get off topic. Take a few minutes and check out this video and you’ll realize that CNN among the other news outlets are using President Trump for ratings and $.

Letter from a farm kid

This is a reblog of an old joke with a new twist, an Elly May Clampett ending (=> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donna_Douglas).
😆

After I wrote a comment, I decided I may as well reblog the joke. It is funny! Anyway, please read the joke, and then read the rest of my comment.

I was still in school 1962–1971 when The Beverly Hillbillies (=> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beverly_Hillbillies) first aired. One of the show’s big jokes was the notion that Elly could beat up strong as an ox Jethro. Such was obviously not meant to be taken seriously, but it seems some people now insist that we do.

The new version of the “joke” is still funny, I suppose. What has changed is the nature of the butt of the joke.

Every joke has a butt. We laugh at someone. If we laugh at someone else, that is ridicule. If we laugh at ourselves, that is as it should be. When we laugh at ourselves, we share an admission of humility.

When we laughed at the antics of Elly and Jethro, we laughed at the ridiculousness of our own prejudices. Yeah, we had prejudices about the Appalachian country folk. Dumb and as strong as oxen, we liked to think. The mythical strength of Elly poked a gaping hole in that prejudice.

So what did we do? What humility did we learn? What grand wisdom did we gain after receiving further decades of instruction in our public schools and from the mainstream news media? In our greater omniscience, we now expect Elly (and city girls too), the wonder women of our age, to out-wrestle Buck Jordan from over in Moonshine Gulch. For real!

Might work, I suppose. Put Elly in a Wonder Woman outfit, and I bet Buck would swoon with delight at the prospect of wrestling her. Perhaps that is how she won once.
😉

Funny thing is I think we are still laughing at the ridiculousness of our own prejudices. Unfortunately, they have just grown stronger and more intractable.

Anyway, let’s thanks the bluebird for the new twist on that old joke.

Dear Ma and Pa,

I am well. I hope you are too.

Tell Walt and Elmer that the U.S. Army beats working for old man Doggett by a mile. They oughta join up quick before all of the places are taken.

I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m., but I am getting so I like to sleep late. All you got to do before breakfast is straighten up your bunk and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay … practically nothing.

We go on “route marches,” which the sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it’s not my place to tell him different. A route march is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city boys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

I keep getting medals…

Ye Olde Plagiarizers….

Here is a great post!

There is an “old saying” in the computer age. Garbage in, garbage out!

If we do not make a conscious effort to survey the news from various sources, we don’t have a complete picture of what is going on. We only see the world as we want to see it. That is biased data and garbage.

Much of what we know of the world depends upon our perception of people. If we don’t watch/read some of the news the “loyal opposition” is seeing, we cannot understand why the “loyal opposition” is so opposed to us. Then they become the enemy.

In a free society, we can brainwash ourselves. We can choose to avoid unpleasant content that denies our world view, or we can try to see things from multiple point-of-views. Digesting the news from multiple viewpoints makes it easier to put ourselves in other people’s shoes. It gives us a better understanding the people and the problems we confront. Then we can propose and defend better solutions. Then we are prepared to convert the “enemy” into the loyal opposition.

See, there's this thing called biology...

ONE FACEBOOK, TWO WORLDS, THREE PROBLEMS link here

alice2I jest. This particular kind of plagiarism is actually the highest form of flattery. The plagiarism of ideas, as in yes, somebody else actually gets it! I really appreciated the above article which begins, “…you might have felt like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole.”  You don’t say?? Imagine that! Am I not the Girl in the Blue Dress?  I have no less than 45 posts tagged “Alice in Wonderland Logic.”

Indoctrination. Brainwashing. Perception is not reality. Algorithms, ideology, cultians, and facebook, oh my. People are actually being brainwashed on the internet, our behavior and perceptions of the world, manipulated. Fake news, biased news, confirmation bias, the molding of public opinion and we are the lab rats.

rabbitYou can’t really protect yourself simply by avoiding facebook or turning off the news, although those are good ideas. But you sure can protect yourself…
