I feel so strongly … that you need to do something! This makes me The Leader, and you the do-nothing whatever could have been a recession but impending depression … blah, blah, blah…
The ostriches, as they say, are all “deeply dug in” … in fund-raising. Mean while, here’s the latest Big Ben Clock Ticking “Warning”, about Taxageddon.
Do you feel mad or sad about this? Well then, let’s ignore it all, or blame ‘them’… and Dream or Stimulate ourselves into Glad. Then, “take a vacation from our problems!” [A "What About Bob" movie reference - it 'worked for' Bill Murray.]
So, you minority of abnormal Americans…what to make of this climate, or culture of What Is Going On [ WIGO ]?
First, Uncle Ben’s $310B Taxageddon Warning is like watching Venus traverse the Sun…without eye shielding, so that by the time that timeless Siren of [true, honest] Love has crossed, you are totally blind. This means, ‘cleared to fantasize more’. Or pass on Dreams of My Father, Dream Acts, or Comedy Acts at Fundraisers. But for real entertainment and popularity, listen to Bill Clinton. He NEVER ‘rises to the level’ by saying whatever, so there’s no need for ‘pivoting’ and ‘push back’ …and Billy can keep his War on Women… ‘personal’.
So is this “oh, the hate” for Bill Clinton? What if Bill Clinton isn’t doing anything… you & I aren’t doing? And you aren’t doing anything…leaders aren’t doing? We’re all just doing the best we can, we’re all suffering, we’re all… blinded by our stimulations into outrageous feelings.
1-Go help a local human service agency, or a hurting person… personally. FIRST, help another who’s worse off than you AND trying to help him or herself. Conversely, do NOT help someone who WILL NOT TRY to help himself. You cannot help such a person, only enable him to keep hurting himself and probably others. And, lead with YOU – your personal time and skills, first to LISTEN to recognize such a person. THEN… contribute materials. LAST, consider giving money. In other words, help by helping… EXACTLY backwards to what marketing and fundraising in organizations want you to do. DO NOT help organizations community organize you. YOU… help individual people trying to help themselves. DO NOT FOCUS. Rather, get your focus OFF your SELF, by finding and helping someone worse off than you. THEN, you can help them… and they can show you by example, ways to value… selflessness.
2-Do NOT give a cent, a dime, or your time to ANY candidate for office until October 1st. If you want to be lied to, manipulated, charisma-ed, promised whatever, poled… just keep giving to liars. LYING ALWAYS… rises to the level …of being in water over your head. Who ought to know that…better than you, who have lied even to your self? If you give a Liar campaign money to lie to you… what on this green earth besides your stupidity makes you feel that they will DO THEIR JOBS? As in… ‘govern’ [for incumbents], or develop principled, clear, specific, prioritzed, implementable plans [for candidates]?
3-To all Veterans. If you “served”, then you know there’s a difference between “serving” and a job or a career or your ‘success’. If you served, you know the value of setting the example – of walking the talk. You also know that people that tell others what to feel, say, think, and do are like teachers who indoctrinate instead of educate. So, Veterans who served, and understand teaching instead of telling… consider government benefits available and… apply only for what you NEED. Do NOT apply for whatever you can get, by whatever you can do. That’s… simply… selfish. A Nation of the Selfish… will not long endure. Servers… will ever be an “oppressed minority”. Servers just make the unnatural choice to … not look at it that way.
4-Entertain Your Family or Friends. Just do what Leaders & Superior People do… change the definition of “entertain”… like we’re busy changing the definition of “marriage”. Remember, it all depends on what “is…is”. So, invite them over for a meal, a BBQ, a casual party…. Ask questions and listen… practice NOT TELLING others what to feel, say, think, do.
5-Meet Individuals as you go about your daily life. Develop 3 basic questions to ask or substantive comments, to invite comment. NOT… ‘have a nice day’ and so forth. IF you start LISTENING to and observing another person… you will find that that person is ALWAYS revealing what is important to them, or how they feel.
6-[advanced entertainment]. Tape a 1 minute or less segment of any ‘leader’ or ‘personality’ you strongly like… and critique it until you ‘feel uncomfortable’ or a simian urge to ‘just move on’. Do this until you decide to look in a mirror and ask your self “why do i feel this way”? And, “does feeling this way make common sense?” If not… why not? Imagine – if ordinary people practiced this – would the country need over 2,200 Federal Pogroms to… “raise your awareness”? Shock & Awe = critique what you like, not blame what you don’t like. Maybe Someday… you can even critique Your Dearest Leader Ever – your self.
7-Put a thought or a question into EVERY tweet, unless you want to be a twit… or a birdbrain.
8-Do not watch ANY TV program or internet video unless you write at least 3 sentences critiquing the content in a journal for your self. At the end of each month, read your entries.
Wild Guesses at What…Could…Happen, by October 1st.
A. There would be frightening & outrageous catastrophes of millions of individual hangovers from a life of stimulations…at every slightest of withdrawals… one at a time. Oh…the humanity!
B. By October, when you hear some clown tell you some whatever will “change your life”… your response will be good-natured laughter… and flashes to a hundred other sayings that once you felt good about… but now recognize as …stupid is as stupid does. ”
THEN… you will be half as prepared as a child to… ask questions of our Dear Leaders… just trying to …get elected.
