This is one crazy stinkin’ photo and the post almost gets the signature “CT” for the picture alone!! But moving on.
This picture represents certain people trying keep the mouths of the people shut but the people not letting it happen. The people are still speaking up and voicing their opinions despite whatever form of mouth-shutting tactics are being used.
Interestingly enough, the photo indicates or form of physical torture in an attempt to keep the mouths quiet. However, most of the people in the west are not publicly known for being physically tortured or tortured at all. I say, “known” because I suggest that there is definitely a component of physical torture happening daily right underneath our noses that we’re either not aware of or do not acknowledge.
The types of mouth-shutting techniques used in this country is the type of “INACTION” and “COMPLACENCY.” People are worn out and feel that what they have to say doesn’t matter and therefore don’t speak at all. I understand. I can definitely identify with that. The bigger thing is that we tend to speak via complaining to each other or in our own homes but not to others outside for the fear of “judging” or some other bull crap. The point is, say something. I’m not saying to preach on the mountain tops but at least say something on this site. If this site alone can be a small sounding board for you to get something off of your chest then make it happen. When I’m finished with my magic and pointing out any craziness I may see, drop a line and add a word.
As I watch this state of the union address these folks are sitting and standing enough to make a Sunday Mass Catholic church member chuckle. Do they even know why they’re standing? Strange. Nothing wrong with the picture par se, just human behavior and pressure being this visual in a room of ‘leaders’ is interesting to watch.
Very patriotic speech about how we’re the leading nation regarding productivity with over $14 Trillion and the next closest country at less than $6 Trillion. He wants to out-build, out-innovate, and out-do everything against other countries. Interesting thoughts. What’s the plan? I’m not saying that it’s his job to come up with the plan but what I am saying is that the theories are great and what country doesn’t want to out-do another country. This is like a football prep speech getting the team pumped to beat the other team knowing that the other team is going to clobber you. I just have this underlying feeling that he knows, like many other people, that the actual plan is causing the economy to weaken to actually crumble on itself.
What is my proof of this self-destruction? Not much. Just the subtleties of where the economy has been heading over the past years and realizing that the actions taken are not improving this ability to take over the world. Paying attention that this capitalist country is selling to countries that do not have us in their best interest just to make some more money. All of the money in the world is not going to provide security for this country. All of the money in the world may pay for some military toys but if you keep letting the enemy in your bed then the money won’t protect you.
Take a look at the countries like Iran and Iraq and Turkey who are not even ranking on the radar of productivity, education, etc. etc. and are a huge threat to our country and our safety. Besides the complaint what is my solution? Talk about it just like this. Try to take people’s eyes and minds off of taking over the world with inventions, but still inventing while understanding what really matters in this world.
I’ve said it before regarding unity and peace the best way to do that is communicate and for as people as possible to understand the other person. I don’t want to get on a side topic but I’ve got to say what I’m thinking as I’m watching this video.
I’ll be honest. It sounds REALLY GOOD. But I have to get out of my heart and emotions and realize that all of the pep talk is ok but at the end of the day there are going to have to be some actions that have some TRUTH in them.
I get an overall feeling that this whole talk is one that says, “I’m not as bad as it seems I am.” It feels like a talk that is saying, “Don’t pay attention to the man behind the green curtain.” Ironically, that green curtain is a green curtain of money and power. That man is hiding behind the speech of success and money so that you won’t notice the charades being put on daily. Like this beautiful state of the union address with power-point presentation.
Uh oh. Here we go. The topic of illegal residents living in this country. Interesting. The children of the illegal residents should be able to stay in this country because they had nothing to do with it, huh? Right. Looks like once that bill is passed the truth about Obama’s residency may come to light.
To be honest, I don’t really care. But what I do care about is the fact that there have been rules set up and it seems a bit strange how he was able to super-cede them while other people have to abide by them.
Now we’re talking about connecting every part of America to the digital age. You know what it’s really all about? Tracking every single American and knowing where we are and what we’re saying at any moment. It’s like the car coming out where you can unlock and start the care remotely. Right. Don’t speed or don’t miss a bill because before you know it that capability will be in the hands of your bill collector’s and any other government section you’re disturbing and they’ll track you down and stop your when they feel like it.
Solution? Should you not buy the car or have the phone? No, not really. The solution is simply for you to understand what is really going on and to not simply listen and nod your head. As long as you’re aware you’re ahead of the game and if something turns sour you’re not shocked and may be more prepared to adapt than others.
Ok. So we’re talking about the Asian-Pacific trade and encouraging and making that a huge priority. That’s my point. You’re providing huge revenues to all of these countries and if they’re the ones building our products than how are we promoting any form of growth, out-doing, out-inventing? What about Iceland? We’ve got a lot of resources within this country to sustain ourselves and if we focus on that perhaps we can “out-do” these other countries. THAT being said, I’m personally all for trading with other countries. So how do we out-do these other countries? Perhaps some secret method of instilling patriotism into our public could help. How do we do that? We’re starting in a deficit but even though I don’t believe the sincerity and believe there is an intentional decline of this country, “taking care of the people” is one good step in the right direction.
There is a lot of talk going on and a lot of angles to look at on this topic. I’m going to need some help on this one. LEAVE A NOTE AND LET’S GET SOME TRACTION ON THIS TOPIC.
I’m tired of listening to this CRAZY TALK! I’m outta here. Hopefully we’ll have some dialogue and continue from there.
