Arizona’s Beauty And Its Senatorial Incompetence

.


.

Arizona; a beautiful state full of beautiful people, but that says nothing about the patronizing right wing demagogues it passes off as its US senators.

I know of nothing these two dimmed down bulbs have done for Arizona, not all of Arizona. As most Republican leaders these days; under their tent grows their version of serving the conserved status elites, while trying to seduce we regular folks to their own one and only kind of view toward Life.  Their projections of fear and insecurity are tailor made for business interest to trump the average citizens.  We citizenry are put into our proper servile place; to stay in the molded mindset of a corporation based government paradigm.

Down with (public democracy) Government! = (Up with Private Dictatorships!)  Hide that last part in parenthesis.  Thanks.

Many a Democratic leader seems to have this same affliction; pandering to elite powers seductive addictions.  I’m not selling the Democrats as saints here.  This post is mostly about mind control tactics being used on populations kept essentially in the dark by a corporation slanted media that follows its own opportunistic calling. (Uh? But didn’t you mean to say a Liberal Mainstream Media?)

The public at large, especially in places like Arizona, are given their view from those getting the most from all the environments; social, economic, earth ecosystems etc, yet pawing off the responsibilities for maintenance, cost and upkeep to all. Wealthiness is socialized economic redistribution after all.  And wealth must be given its narratives of achievement and success, devoid of responsibilities and accountability to The Whole.  Cause what egomania fun is that! For this, the GOP and right wing propaganda machinery is designed for diversion, denial and obfuscation, all buttressed by platitudinal pabulum.

With myopic lenses inserted; why Arizona and America’s interest are all clear as a tax cut. Down with Government, that coincidentally in a Democracy defends us militarily and rights-wise from opportunist with other forms of power, unless they kill Democracy’s dimensional and directional value, and or take it over that is.

Arizona has unfortunately been sculpted to make the positive aspect Appearance Reality of wealth be its Consensus Reality mind-frame as well.  We The People, are to tag along behind the really important to my election people, bearing the brunt of all the negative sides of wealth and its consumption addictions.. Now with corporations being allowed to socialize their own “freedom” to influence Democracy at will, thanks to the ever incompetent conservatives on the Supreme Court, the mind cleaning for corporate conformity will proceed at a picked up pace.

Perceptions (right or wrong) of order in societies functioning, can erode away the rights of “We The People” while being chanted by the misdirected to that very phrase.  The Pharos would have been proud of todays conservatives achievements in skewing reality perception by linguistic trickery and other forms of sophistry necessary to have rationalization trump reason.  How?  Reason (demonstrable cause and effect) is made to be suspicious, while emotional cause and effect undeterred from fact checking is made to be obvious.  Enter Fox Newsiness and all the other right wing propaganda platforms where no full fact base or context need apply.

The Obama Omission Haunts Arizona’s Commons

With Obama taking away the sensible Governor for homeland security, we were left with the sycophants of  predatory wolves free to rule the hen house of the states residents common interest. A biased to hierarchical branded “Freedom” comes packaged with populist pabulum delivered all self righteously and entitled of course… We see all too often how scary John McCain appears, with his dizzy spiraling ideological “common sense”, as he regularly tries to be a spokesperson for the lobotomized right wing base he used to be sensibly leery of.

Now the name of the passion game is; that party virtue is to be as crazy-(accusatory without evidence or honest context–fear merchandising) and intellectually frozen in place as can be. Open minds in Arizona’s leadership? We don’t need open minds here, those are to be loathed.  Stuff just falls through open minds anyway, obviously.

Kyl has perfected his top down view of the publics interest to suit Arizona’s top place (winners) business folks needs.  All goodness and moral quality are known by viewing the self centered needs of wealth and power, as long as they do not help poor people who should be helping themselves after all.  Don’t they see how society works for those who have?  It’s Gods message to them apparently.  We should not interfere with God people.  What are you thinking!  I like how the “Eye Of The Needle” has been engineered to be the freeway to goods and services.  Faith and trust come in real handy as a mechanisms to cover over reality.

Serve those who reward you economically or what are you doing? It seems people of “substance” like to be “framed” grand style, by being told how they are the best there is, and can do no wrong unless caught at certain things. The chamber of commerce Golden Calf Chain is anchored around Republican heads and hearts while the rest of us should be quite, just be grateful for knowing our proper place.  This produces an economic cosmology that grinds down the idea that true and full public interest is the primary one in a Democracy.  We are losing it.

{Here is an article I just came across that reflects upon the state of conservatism.}

Why Conservatism is Disconnected From Reality | The Moderate Voice

.

Propagandist of the right, agitating for self separation anxiety in the public, and so dependency on power structures, such as the GOP does, various Rush Limbo’s, as well as most all of Fox News; portray how fear and loathing are to be ones actionable better angels. And of course! Bring this up to any of them and you will relativised existentially, likely be told that you are the one producing the dissonance, by suggesting one should fear them. Ha!  Caught me hypocrite!  This contrapuntal circular reasoning trick is a mainstay in conservative alleged debunking platforms, it “existentializes” any criticisms, seeming to produce an effect similar to a Thought-terminating cliché.

The fear and loathing, wrapped in pseudo scientific proof for science claims of likely facts, or psychological and social ones, get associated with their opposite side of the coin energy by claims of moral superiority.  Now a rabbit can come out of knitted cap; specially delivered with much smiling and wincing for confident Appearance Reality sake in the confirmation bias enabled Consensus Reality show.  No really!

Exhibit A; Fox newsiness entertainment shows.  It is all about manipulating and contorting how things seem, and not objectively how they are in full context or perspective.  Perception of cause and effect are highly truncated and convoluted. Here is where faith, trust, and party loyalties cover over the landscapes of ignorance with ideological certainty of purpose and rightful cause.  The faithful trust Fox to give them their fix.  This enables Evil (ignorance) to go right under their radars and into their policies.

We see all accusation from these conservatives, but no real answers, except to recite a business, or an alluded to certain kind of Christian model identity as The People’s. For the self defined religious conservatives, one religions imagined superior moral value currency is decreed as the only viable one in our nation, and ultimately the world.  No pluralism and diversity. No freedom, real democracy, nor liberty need apply.  This sort of a priori surety of foundational concepts, insulates unstable and dependent identities from the ambiguities and nuance at Life’s table.  –It is my way or the highway with you.  My God or my version of The Constitution are making me get you.

Suffering The Fools

Speaking of highways; I personally know if you come to Arizona from Mexico or New Mexico, better go to the bathroom there before coming into AZ, cause the rest stops are closed at their first stops on the Interstate here.  Budget cuts for beautiful AZ that somehow Texas And New Mexico seem to survive with intact.

This is what the Republicans, along with the hugely private funded “think tank” version of focus grouped dimmed down conservatism we have today, has done to Arizona.  Once brimming surpluses were eroded away by tax cuts for the wealthy.  You know; that whole strangle government from interfering with your personal income; the grander the income the more responsibility for the state and nation one seems to reject.  This is contempt for The Commons– the connectivity of Life in society and all other environments.  It requires philosophical mindsets of separation; of us and them, a compartmentalized and segregated consciousness, to explain how one is fundamentally better than another and intrinsically at odds with their interest.

What goes around comes around in the real world however; the greed–(self entitlement without acknowledging consequence) of the wealthy comes to curse the majority who made the wealthy wealthy.  Yes, like the economy, the wealthy redistribute the nations and states wealth to themselves, with society allegedly providing the winner narrative, as one envied by all.

This can transfer the wealthy’s skewed alienated perspective as one we each should desire and pursue.  Now the detached, and in some respects, deluded individual, finds “death taxes” and certain tax cuts as coming to them rightfully, when it is actually an issue for 1% or so of the population.  Better than smoke and mirrors, it is conservatism’s need to not check facts, to have contempt for them, unless they are cherry picked ones that suit their confirmation biased world view.

This is conservatism’s profound incompetence; its truncated spiritual and cosmological world view.  It preserves the conservatives fear and insecurity dependency based delusions of grandeur, while blaming those without for not being go getting, or good enough; The Commons be damned, or better yet, kept completely off the perceptual radars.  Pollution? Poverty? Vast common interest?  I just don’t see it! Get a job! Get a life!


Watch What I Pull Out Of The Liberals Hat!

These two senator guys, like most Republican leaders and their ideological string pullers, have to figure out how to sell the wealthiest interest as all our own.  Language must be commandeered, and it has been over the last several decades.  A word and idea such as taxes, or responsiblity for Freedoms maintenance in a Democratic nation; the way a Democracy addresses major issues affecting it, is reduced to an impingement on your right to have everything you can get and give back only what you decide–(actually, Representative government already is this by vote).

But from the demonization of concept campaign; the public interest; that Big Side of every citizen, is to be taken care of by nothing, as if we are actually detached from this world and Creation we live in, a delusion.  But by focusing on negative tag frames of reference, an ideological identity emerges as a kind of freedom loving “common sense” mandate prerogative I have; that government is best that non exist.  Oh. Its popular to say we need a military to protect our dumbed down concept of our “Vital National Interest”.  This is suicidal for a democratic republic, not to mention the connectivity of Life and its vast interplay of system dynamics integral to all our existence.

It, the consequences of ones actions beyond the self, will clean up automatically after my life and business somehow.  It is magical thinking after all!  I know of some conservatives (certainly not all) who resent recycling; must seem a bothersome, imposed new change, or a do-gooder suspicious conspiracy to make my life hard.  Fixing infrastructures is now–a big tax on your children!  But how else are common things done?  Your church or the company you own or work for going to do this for itself?  As I said; fear and insecurity grounded delusion’s of grandeur they want us all to bear for them.

This is how tax cuts can become a state and a nations deadening weight.  That Democracies with the highest tax rates are considered to be quantitatively and qualitatively most free, is against the individualist alone narrative being offered as the supposedly only one for the freedom loving citizen.  Even the libertarians hat can be stuffed with baloney instead of rabbits.

And Faith Makes Objectivity Irrelevant

The program to attach economic well being to Gods grace flowing upon you, is now well under way in America, sometimes called “Prosperity Christianity”, but it is actually materialism’s guise as Gods grace.  You are poor cause God is punishing you. Jesus had the loaves and fishes, not us.

Fear and insecurity are the leverage points for unstable identity’s who’s egos are “naturally” always seeking to be the bride for various absolutist mind-frames. The national (corporate now mixing with theocratic) narrative is filled with paying attention to stocks, and wondering what kind of Nirvana we all will pursue with all the money and morals we would have if liberals were not around.

This completely ignores the pyramidal and predatory nature of unregulated capitalism, as it has been allowed to disintegrate into a dominator mindset without Democracy’s thoughtful oversight.  With your money or your life as the “Life” paradigm, we are literally saying that human beings only deserve what they can afford.  That money is an abstract symbol actually detached from rules of true merit, honesty or achievement, is conveniently not to be considered.  The new God is Coin, or was that the old Golden Calf?

That is what is destroying a true national community of cause, and polluting the American Spirit.  That Spirit is reduced to, who gets the most income wins the most from life; achievement, heredity, hook or crook,– is now the one and only American Way.  I heard a Republican representative pontificating against the socialist nature of a healthcare system, (like an optional medicare), while then saying he stands for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

.

United States Declaration of Independence – Wikipedia, the free

that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

.

Notice Life comes first in this grand rights abstraction.  If it is as it is–your money or your life ( some 45,000 die each year from lack of adequate health-care), how then is Life the presiding unalienable right?  Is it really; Well. It’s what they would have said was the case, if you have enough money, you then can have Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit Of Happiness?  This is the kind of self retardation being created by fear and paranoia’s myopic identity framers, and not the USA’s Founding Fathers and Mothers.

In the name of Freedom, Liberty and, Death To Taxes!, America is being undone by deluded intention.  They will end US up in the Singapore model of economic prosperity, the same one China is idealizing; no criticism of the economy or the cultural narrative, then money’s Golden Light will shine its graces upon thee.  Know thy place my child. There be free.

No!  It’s You! Na, Na, Na, Na, Na.

Conservatives make a seemingly unavoidable perceptual error; the fallacy that liberals are themselves as dogmatic as they themselves are.  The colored lens of absolutism produced this fallacy for conservatives; that liberals are not self correcting.  Liberalism is by its very nature, a self correcting theoretical framework, where “higher truth” is allowed to win out if it produces a superior objective logical case.

This does not mean that liberals “know” they are right as conservatives do.  Liberals and conservatives are likely nearly equal in their actual lives regarding fact and fiction.  Liberals, or that open nature toward Life that all humans have somewhere within themselves, adapt to changing situations, instead of insisting that situations cannot or should not change.  As it is; Life does intrude on the best laid plans and beliefs.

There Are Diverse interest With A Varying Places On The Continuum Of Connection And Responsiblity: This Is The Way Of Life And Of Democracy.

A Way that is actually abstract and emotionally detached from all things, except those supporting the economic paradigm which controls its own self affirming philosophical tenets, is a scheme.  You can get angry, get greedy, or lust for the “good life”, then “succeed” mightily.  The more you make seeming to define the more you wish not to contribute back to the actual systems you are taxing by your success.  Magically, society and other environments take care of themselves somehow.  Not my problem!  Make a liberal angry; succeed and be happy!

Yet that paradigm says you are a success; the income proves it!  You are no longer a loser but an achiever; one being responsible for oneself.  You were kept down by liberalism’s lack of expectation and provision of entitlement.  Now you are a self made success, having overcome liberalism’s depression of your spirit.  However, in this new success schemes self fulfilling prophesy, you are also set up not to see where everyone else really is if you could ever achieve such an awareness.

You do not see nor likely no longer accept the dissonant reality, that some are not every actually in your position for a rebirth into a self reaffirming material mindset.  Some do not have the ability or the emotional makeup that you do.   Some may not be spiritually aware as you are, and depriving them of basic life ingredients may well only make your “tough love’ a formula for an others death sentence.  You may now believe that the physical can force moral value enlightenment, but it may well end up defining materialism as the worshiped goal, and materialism detest critical awareness of its spiritual impacts.  Yet “value” and “moral” votes think they can force goodness into people by preventing them from doing things by force.

Conservatives Without Conscience: Christians and Earthly Authority

Aug 2, 2006 I’ve just finished reading John Dean’s new book, Conservatives Without Conscience, and have found much fuel there for examining conservative

Leaders Without A Conscience Of The Real

Herein is the ground to manifest the mental and spiritual illness affecting much of conservatism today:  Responsibility and accountability to a Whole system, can seem to conservatives to be an unjust imposition upon their own particular amputated conceptions of freedom and individual self realization.  They fall under the spell of alienation and its attendant fear and insecurity; seeming to constantly complain about the weaknesses “out there” in the world.  They see others as lacking in their own self confirmed bias and faith in a system designed to exploit individuals and environments while being itself psychologically backed up to adding brick and mortar to a wall of denial toward The Commons, or if you will; Creation.

This mindset intentionally will ignore corporate, as well as all of our, responsiblity to the vast Commons—all that connects the relationships of the life we each possess.  Instead, the idea is to turn the table in the temple over, expelling God, or if you do not accept that God is a reality; all the integral associations of Life in Creation that we are all immersed in together; the air, the earth and so very much more.

Instead, they leave only vendors selling the necessities of a parted out Creation, where money is the determinate whether you literally live or die.  Your survival value is–how much you have.  Some see this worshiping of materialism as the grace of God being bestowed upon them–how convenient a rationalization. Not unlike the one humankind has been burdened with for ages– the haves validating themselves while distancing themselves from the have-nots’.  The cultural scheme rewarding with circular logic; the design of the scheme professed as destiny.

It is emotional and spiritual voodoo made to seem like Divine Respect and Sanction.  The unbridled exploitation mindset has the same functionality as cancer; it will destroy its commons (the individual’s body of cells interconnected in this case) while consuming all it has to survive eternally. Today’s materialism actually denies spiritual realities, and can so claim to not be destroying anything—Why.  Do you think I would destroy this planet where my family lives!  You are crazy!  I just don’t accept the science. there’s just to many unanswered questions… etc.

Ways To Control What Is Left Of Democracy

The intentionally designed, lobotomized right wing requires thought control to keep the vast and varying interest of life on earth, including its people, unawares of manipulation of self identity scripts and narratives. Instead we get purity test for conservative “credentials”.  This is how fascism is made from Democracy; eliminate church and state boundaries, eliminate state and corporate boundaries, eliminate abstraction and reality boundaries, then control the detached individuals fear and imagination parameters.

Now people can be organized and manipulated by providing them with fear and insecurity projections toward what you wish.  Right wing think tanks spend good money on figuring out how to say things to you so that you will think like they do.  This is best done through faith venues; such as church and business economic interest click’s. Otherwise; stress in the population is to be tagged to liberal ideas and diverted from conservative ones–the ones that provide thought control automatically.

.

Consider those who say we all must contribute a fair share to maintaining the health of this earth and its inhabitants–these must be portrayed as taking from your now castrated view of the self identity and awareness of realities principles of union.  A wealthy person may use this earth a million times more than I do, yet essentially only want to give back what I do; Why that is only fair!  Cut (my) taxes!

The detached individual can easily feel that taxes take from them and give to others.  It is a “No Brainer”.  It is no stretch for an imagination devoid of the deep connection in the realities of Being.  These folks are actually slaves to a profit–(corporate/individual levied tax) which is separation centered and not interested in maintaining the health and wellbeing of The Commons.  It is instead; interested in maintaining the separated individuals ego as an achiever or winner of goods and services that no one has any business minding themselves about–(cancer to The Commons).

They (conservatives in general and the right wing especially) must ignore and deny or reject their accountability to The Commons, except in abstract cognitive dissonance avoiding generalizations.  And this is what we are left with; people who must deny science and those interested in the health of the whole society or the whole planet.  They will cherry pick facts, usually calling them the real truth!, often needing only one to “prove” their own confirmation bias, with a shame and blame narrative for those liberals, (to assist in the cognitive dissonance mitigation of those with truncated identities).  They are then left with the passion that besets Appearance Reality designer facts that prop up the emotive narrative for the Rights Consensus Realities frames.

The likes of Arizona’s two “conservative” senator ideologues, one somewhat coherent and the other maverickly mixed up, these are wed to a truncated world perspective; including the mind, heart and soul contamination of fantasy that goes along with it.  They seem detached to their worlds of isolated consciousness, where the value and moral ethos to life here in Arizona and the USA is; Your money or your life;  Your money is your value; Your money is your worth. Your money depicts you moral and ethical worth. Your money decides your life; your health care, your food, your shelter. Your money defines whether you live or die.

This is why the Dry-rot Of Civilization Is Conservatism; for in the mistaken attempt to conserve a one way thought pattern, it actually cuts off the fully integral nature of Being, of Existence, claiming there is nothing new nor nothing real of value outside its singular cosmological and or spiritual perspective.

The blood of Life becoming stagnant.  The fungus of fear and insecurity nesting throughout perspective and cognition, leading to heart hardening, while blood is reduce to thought. This problem made of itself to its life, now taken out on others, unable to address how they themselves were seduced to the position that they know it all, and need not hear you or I.

And so we have the hate and fear mongers of this day; They are serving the life of the fungus and not of the Spirit.

From Arizona With Love

What Climate Change? It’s Snowing! Ha!

When its cold or snowy; does that mean Climate Change is in error?

Well why not then?

If one thinks cold or snowy winter extremes prove Climate Change is a farce, one is likely measuring a confirmation bias, and not the earths weather system as a whole.  For instance; major parts of the northern hemisphere have just experienced a record warm January(*).  But if there’s a snowstorm such as just happened in the eastern US, God is proving Al Gore wrong! — Not my idea; propaganda directives from the conservative mind meld machinery.

The right wing demagogues are out to “prove” truncated context, ie, a snowstorm or a record cold weather event, is evidence of a Climate Change  (global warming) fallacy.

Where do these disconnects in reason come from?

And why?

Almost to a one, the confusion oriented right wing is seeing a Big Lie in the snow angels being made across the Northeast.  I may make one tonight at my house! Climate Change, however, is not a specific weather event, though any may relate to it in some manner–stronger, weaker, depends on things like whole context and worldwide data.  Climate change is based upon correlations with chemical changes humankind has and is introducing to the environment.  This does not mean there are not other drivers for climate change historically, and possibly concurrently.

Yet for some reason, some folks are quite sure that most of America is full of the self retarded, unable to grasp nuance in scientific theory, while claims of scientific hypocrisy come very cheep; a cold spell, some devious researchers etc.  As I often claim; conservatives usually require one seemingly contradictory idea or fact to debunk an entire liberal, and, or, scientific concept.

The opposite however, does not apply; to debunk conservative or right wing rationalization paradigms, one would need to “prove” all of their ideas wrong.  Anyone who claims to prove them wrong, or a perponderance of debatable conclusions, will be demeaned, demonized or otherwise cast into a negative tag/frame.  This is an emotional requirement in many to avoid cognitive dissonance from disturbing a dubious Consensus Reality wed to many an Appearance Reality error.

Beyond the surity of conservative superiority complexes regarding their character or moral/value presumptions, insecurity rules identity in the conservative with its iron fist of attitude as refutation of the reality based rules of critical thinking.  Science is demonize, except where some data or a pseudoscientific theory “proves” the prevailing scientific notion “wrong”.  The unhinged from fact or context requirement of this trust in their own unquestionable convictions, makes faith into the conservatives life raft of identity constructs. Trust, faith, and allegiance/loyalty are allowed, even insisted to trump Gods laws of nature and of Truth.

In America, it seems powerful forces bank on Americans being unplugged form critical thinking.  We all, and this planet we love and live on, will continue to pay the price of ignorance instituted for the status and security needs of the few.

Ignorance is the demagogues prime capital. This is why they must insist on its rightness, and propagate it throughout the culture to control Democracy; manipulating and directing fear and loathing.  “The right wing echo chamber” is term given to this disseminating media phenomenon that constructs an Appearance and Consensus Reality of manufactured truths made into false idols, then called, “The Truth.”  Circular Reasoning at work.

This deception of the public, and attempt to deceive “We The People”, caries all the trademarks of the charlatan, with sophistry made to the order of ideological propaganda.  That ignorance is worshiped as if the word of God, and nature called into question, is unconscionable.  This is perhaps why the manipulation of perceptual truth by leveraging ignorance, is actually the worship of darkness in the name of The Light.  This requires much attitudinal energy to overcomes ones own doubt, and perhaps awareness of incomplete logic being called fact.

The right prosecutes the outer world for its own error in judgement.

January 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update +0.72 Deg. C « Roy

C in January, 2010. This is the warmest January in the 32-year satellite-based data record. The tropics and Northern and Southern Hemispheres were all well

Why do people in positions of authority seek to mislead or misrepresent the truth?  Power and status are the same motivators they have always been to profit from intellectual and emotional seduction.

Now some very relevant observations by the philosopher Bertrand Russel, who saw through many of the mind games played for perception and social control.

“Man is a credulous animal, and must believe something; in the absence of good grounds for belief, he will be satisfied with bad ones.”


“The essence of the liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held,
but in how they are held: instead of being viewed dogmatically,
they are held tentatively, with a consciousness that new evidence
may at any moment lead to their abandonment.”

“The opinions that are held with passion are always those for which no good ground exists; indeed, the passion is the measure of the holder’s lack of rational conviction.”

“Dogma demands authority, rather than intelligent thought, as the source of opinion; it requires persecution of heretics and hostility to unbelievers; it asks of its disciples that they should inhibit natural kindness in favor of systematic hatred.”

Christmas Christians Say No To Canadians?

No Canadians For You This Christmas!!!

I received this in an e-mail.  It does put forward the staggering contradictions and cherry picking that goes on in the blind “conservative” Bible following opportunism rampant these days.
I trust they know not what they do.

Subject: Can I own a Canadian?


Why Can’t I Own a Canadian?
October 2002


Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It’s funny, as well as informative:


Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:


When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?



-I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?


I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.


Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?


I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?


Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?


Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?


I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?


My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? – Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)


I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.
Your devoted fan,
Jim

Wouldn’t you know it.  There they go again. Those secret socialist are trying to fool you.

First they suggest that the poor deserve the same rights that the rich have!

Absurd!

The Founding Fathers intended that money would determine your place in society as it always had!  No money?  No life!  What part of success do these secret socialist not understand!

Contradiction must be imbibed as if it were good sense.  Enter the domain of cognitive dissonance; where what you think you are is not what you actually are!

We are gifted with the human mind ladies and gentlemen.  The concept of reality is a construct, a kind of opinion. With our ability to exert excess influence upon the cultural narrative; we frame of define what words and concepts are.  Their parameters are in our hands to mold to our need.  This means science must be overridden and faith based dialectics encouraged as moral and ethical truths.

Global warming a fact?  What warming? What fact?  That’s your opinion!

Checkmate!

Cash that check from your “polluting”–not. = Successful! industry stock returns keeps flowing.

Why that is the American way.  Are you against us or for us?

See.  It’s about controlling the parameters of the narrative.  Our corporate sponsors do this continuously without even being asked!

.

The right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. What part of that does health care have to do with it?!!!

No money?  No health care! No option!

Over 40,000 a year die from lack of adequate health care.  We need death to have nothing to do with Life! Contradictions must be thought of as being consistent with a coherent abstraction based conceptual matrix. This must seem natural!  That way the Founding Fathers words can be detached from reality and interpreted the way we wish.

Secret socialism defeated!

Sure the poor drive on public highways if they can afford to have a car and pay for gas and insurance.  This helps to return the general population to dependency modes on the wealthy, removing that living off the land ethos that let people survive essentially on their own merit.  We decide what merit is! Not nature! Not God!

Irritate a liberal; succeed and be happy is what I say!

We love that the same tax that they pay helps keep the roads for our use.  We must ignore and deny public projects that we require as being socialist or socialism.  They are for our Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness after all!

Police, the military, disaster relief, bank and too big to fail industry bail outs for the supper rich, all these secret socialism agendas must be made invisible!  Keep your government hands off of my Medicare is what I say! This is how we steer minds to our viewpoint; BY INCAPACITATING CRITICAL THINKING!

Remember folks, this is Darwinian evolution plain and simple, make no mistake about it!  We stay on top by making sure self centeredness triumphs over the Public Good.  This is the challenge predators always faced; making the public fall in line for status based schemes of control.

Remember; each time we defer to private control over public governmental control, we erase public imput over our actions.  This defeats the secret socialism endemic to human survival.  We place the individual over The Commons.  Thusly, we put Democracy in its place—as the servant of status and control hierarchies.  Now you and I can be the actual government, while our propoganda machinery defeats the secret socialism of Democracy and The Public Good, and The Commons.

Damn government interference in my life is what we say!

Say it louder!

There you have it!  The individuals identity codified to subjective interest over societal and environmental connection. Now we can connect the dots we wish for our servant/success individualism paradigm.  This subdues the individuals interest in interrelationship and connection to “The Whole”, making that whole something to dissect and sell off.

Now was that so hard!

We are in a battle over hearts and minds. A battle we win by controlling the dialectic and using our preexisting advantage! We will use all avenues of subjective vs objective impressions to win this fight.

Defeat critical thinking ability in any objective sense. To do this, favor faith over science! This places unverifiable tenets and theory beyond public analysis or objective inquiry!  Secret Socialism undone!  The Public becomes the servant of the Private.

Now we have the time tested tricks over the human mind at our disposal; create disenfranchised notions for those we find objectionable to our belief structure.  Paint “The Other” as against you;  Its quite easy. “The real America” vs?–not real Americans! Add your own confirmation biased presumption. “Real Christians”, whatever you like. Well, actually you won’t have to.  We have propaganda outlets doing this day and night 24/7.

Its all about manipulating the appearance reality of good vs evil, attaching the conceptions to identity, then making it clear our target audience is painted in as the good. Now this establishes operational consent. This is divide and conquer for taking Democracy down to service our needs!  Its our corporate welfare state, and not the public one!  And don’t you forget it!

Attack critical thinking with Thought-terminating clichés.  Invoke buzz words, with their identity tag negatives and positives, as conceptual king pins of perception.  And; deny, detract and convince as deceptive, the ways of science to suggest and infer objective insight as deception itself.

Why its scientific opinion against my solid faith!  No contest!

Presto! A big, fat rabbit out of the anti-socialist hat!  By keeping the socialism/fascism/communist/atheist threat as intrinsic to The Public Good, we turn that Public Good into our servant, as well as all the faithful followers of our ideological take on Creation itself.

This is how we defeat socialism, or public anything we wish, while we strive to institute the unregulated individual advantage that will make the new feudalism a permanent ruler over religion, Democracy, and that great mass of public losers who serve us as their natural masters.

And don’t forget to thank both political parties, but particularly the most extremely “conservative” one, for making all this so easy.

Give a shout out to China as well.  For their fake socialism, world dependency loops through globalism, the appearance reality of a healthy economy and a “lifestyle” sense of achievement.  We could not do this without them!  They make America what we sell it as!

Remember people!

The ultimate public option is Democracy itself!

Contain it! Undermine it! Reverse its reality matrix! Make it all about wedge issues, for they wedge the individual from the generic Public Good, and make it all about propaganda and idea control which we have the numerical advantage over! The empirical numerology of wealth!!!  Use its blessings.  Heck.  Make money and blessing appear to be the same thing in the publics mind!

Right!

It pretty much already is!

Success people!

Success!

Defeat Democracy’s inherent socialist agenda!

May the God of Success be with you all!

Billionaires For Wealthcare Video

Seemingly in response to Fox News and Freedom Works apparent intention to have your health regulated by corporate bottom lines above your own life lines, this group, Billionaires For Wealthcare, presents what the invisible elephant in the health-care room cannot see.  What?  The 9-12 diverted frustration tagged onto those not actually causing their ills.

Right Wing Sophistry; Ambush at MSNBC

Well

Lawrence O’Donnell, sitting in for Chris Matthews on Hardball, (which I do not normally watch), let loose onto some US Representative he was interviewing; Rep. John Culberson (R) of the Appropriations CMTE.  Apparently, this Representative thought tough questions should not be asked. You know, as in the manner it is done on liberals on Fox news.

The Rep. did the usual diversionary tactics; going his own way instead of answering questions.  He went on to paint it in conceptually; that unfair to me way the right does if you do not completely agree with them.  Hello.  It’s an interview where you answer questions and not just spout your own plans as the answer.  Seems we are used to softball politics when questioned.

O’Donnell was seemingly perturbed at this guy;  you know, like they do on Fox News to libs.  It seems the host wanted to cut to the chase on all this government is bad and evil in health care that the right is fueling their blowtorches with.  Mr. O’Donnell wanted to know if Rep. Culberson would stand up against the socialist(*) programs of Medicaid and Social Security.  It seems the Rep, although hedging the concepts, would have said yes to them back in the day.

But today, as far as being interviewed?  A new kind of don’t ask so I don’t need to tell. The Reps sense of being abused seemed as tough he was insisting on the way he likes to “answer” questions.  Kinda; Why don’t you like and respect me cause I’m smiling, and just ask me what I want you to?  You’re so unfair!  And again; ‘You don’t know me, so how dare you call me a liar!’

The host was wanting a direct answer on this socialism issue; where this Rep is allegedly–as in agreeing with the anti government health care reform; all about it being all bad, then claiming to be actually for socialism where it is popular.  Seems something is wrong with such ideological dualism as if fuels confusion and propaganda campaigns to induct the naive.

(I have a new respect for Fox news and the grilling of interviewed liberals; without mutual respectful dialogue, certain demands need be expressed to get something like an honest answer.  Otherwise it seems; avoid, avoid, divert attention from questions.  Am I really saying this!  Hurray Fox News!)

Back to this interview I witnessed a half hour ago:

A yes or no was being asked; are you for socialism’s usages as now long manifest in the USA, or against it?  The Rep. went back to his explanations of not quite knowing the history.  But he thought that in the Great Depression some people needed help, seems his father did.  It was not perfectly clear if he thought other people may need help if they are elderly or whatever today?

But then Rep. Culberson did the ad-hominen stuff, kinda like the woman at a health care meeting whom he called his new hero, which had just been played on tape to him on Hardball.  The Rep. accused the MSNBC host of being unfair, of not knowing him, ‘This is why MSNBC is so pathetic and not liked’ as I paraphrased the Rep. again.  Good argument?  Liberals mad=bad, so called apolitical folks saying reforming health care=socialism=good.  So OK to be mad.

It is amazing, how whenever one seems to turn these guys own tables on them, (town hall  attacks dialogue supresing information exchange in the name of free speach), it degenerates to mobish name calling and personality failure “characteristics”.  Why?  Why do the facts on the table disappear and ‘The trouble with you people’ become the focus of consciousness?

Once this was called sophistry, using substitutes for truth in context in argument as if these devises were still legitimate.  In the liberal context our society presumably still exist in, where free speech is allowed, community standards of respect are thrown out and allegedly trumped by propaganda dialectics being directed by right wing media sources.  How quickly some of these so called conservatives become the opposite of what they were just a year or so ago. After all, we do fall for a good bias leading argument, even where many a fact or connecting concept may be intentionally withheld, if it feels good to our ideas proofiness. I am touching it a bit here myself, by using personality and attitude in places as if they were actual fact.  Right wing radio, about 90% of political talk radio, uses this inherent manipulation gimmick/trick most all the time.

And that is the trouble with faith mixed into politics; it ( ones beliefs) seemingly beg to be told what and how one wishes to hear. This moves us out of the present moments relationship context, Its fullness, and overlays ideological lenses as the means of “seeing clearly”.  Some folks know how to turn our ignorance into social, political and economic capital.

Wow!  Now I see so clearly!  It all makes sense!

One can lead and manipulate in darkness by pretending to be the light.  To represent the unabashed truth in context favors no one per say; for It leads us.  Not the kind of insight manipulators nor predators would wish to see, nor have we see.  So divert attention and blame.  Hiding the darkness (ignorance and confusion) with attitude and illusion.

That is how you succeed at getting seniors to be against any government run medicine, when they are on Social Security and or worried if their Medicare is going to be effected by changes.

The power of sophistry? Allows ignorance and confusion to be used against oneself while not knowing it.  To some this represents a kind of winning, of getting their way.  When manipulation succeeds, it is seductive to some.   But when called on it—unfair to me!

But Mr. Rep, the show is called Hardball.  There is perhaps a hint there?

{My take on much of the ideological conflict below}

* Note

On the right, many words, like socialism, tax, government, etc. are used as Thought-terminating clichés.  Hearing some of these folks speaking up at the town hall meetings is often an exercise in a conglomerated list of fears, suspicion and innuendos put out by the right wing propaganda machinery. It is the words tag frame that is directing the question being professed, like “death panels” or “government bureaucrats between you and your doctor”.  Do you really think there are “death panels”? or that there already are not corporate bureaucrats standing between you and your doctor?

It is about using ignorance as political and other capital.

As for “socialism”, most modern societies are highly “socialized”.  We spread many cost across society, socializing them.  We can even say that corporations socialize their cost across society.  They raise prices just as government raises tax, only in government, we presumably have some say. Most societies always were socializing cost one way or another.  human being and the world are all connected, deny it as one wishes to be foolish.  If there is a fire on the hill, liberals and conservatives expect the firefighters to try to put out the fire.  How different is illness and disease? Of no interest to us all?

This is socialism; the cost socialized to society, just like the military, the police.  If I live in a desert, do I then demand my tax money back for firefighting that I do not need?  What kind of people do that? How about; I might never leave the house, so I don’t want to pay for air and water pollution that I am not causing, being it is not just and fair to me? But what do some corporations (funding much right wing media) now do? Tell us how pollution controls by government mandate will make them raise the price on us, so this equals government bad, for government wants to increase your cost of living.  Government detached from yur real life concerns. How typically callus that government is.  Trick delivered.

Most argument on the right is actually differed to selfishness and self centeredness vs those “others”.  Those others, society, whomever, wants to take from you and give to someone else.  This is then perceived as a kind of theft, while ideals of responsibility to common interest, or to consequence of individual actions upon the whole, are erased from the radar.  Usually these intrinsic connections of consequence are replaced with platitudes of individualism’s nobility and honor.  Except, of course!, when corporate or individual behavior gets us in trouble in the world, and with that worlds competing interest.  Suddenly we are to be for protecting our country and way of life together; socialized.  We differ again, to those with money above the average person, yet claim that average person shares the exact interest of the wealthy.  The reverse does not apply!  How convenient to whom?

This is how our common interest regarding The Commons–the connectivity of Life, is manipulated to have us shoot ourselves in the foot for our alleged best interest, usually construed as saving money. Just as the government does not then give you a bill for the helicopter and air dropped fire retardant to save your families home, society would degenerate into infinite islands of the individual versus the world, then having to pay directly for any use for all this to be perceived as exactly “fair”.  This, if we follow this philosophy of self merit to its honest and principled conclusion.

We have common interest as a nation or world, or we think we do not.  For the right wing’s reactionary list for word/concepts cliché diversions, nuance and ambiguity are enemies to “clear” thinking.  This kind of conceptual divide and conquer can let ideology pick apart any common good and reduce it to rubble, if opportunist can get the access to public ignorance and convince us we know. Since money does have more access to free speech, it has a more than equal opportunity to direct attention.  This is what can lead to Democracies downfall.

Enter right wing alienation propaganda, driven by think tank proved wedge on The Commons issue manipulation.  The Pros. know language can convolve most any concept to become the opposite of what it is. Ignore The Commons; ignore global warming, ignore that the cost will be socialized later and likely at much greater cost than prevention. Ignore, bury, then divert attention to buzz word bagged and tagged conceptual lead weights.

Overall, the modern conservative movement seems driven by manipulators with personal interest to gain at the expense of the whole, yet claiming It as their cause.  They would rather have it be; “Your money or your life”, as the operational paradigm, enslaving society to opportunist driven schemes.  And what kind of culture is that? We will hear it proudly proclaimed that this is actually how America and the modern world has succeeded at so much. Behind the chants of “socialist” and, not an American, and all this other baloney; it is the kind of nation the right will deliver if allowed to; corporatism, with theocratic overtones to direct followers spiritual concerns to those that support authoritarian structures.  And all while ranting and railing against just those creations.

I suggest that the modern world has a major accounting being delivered by our environments.  I would suggest that we do things; not because of “you money or your life”, but because we love life, want to live, and do what it seems we must to exist.  This can succeed, and succeed much more fully, being motivated by Love, instead of driven by fear, for that latter falls victim to ignorance, while thinking it is truth.

The subjugation of human interest to commercial interest has rendered much of the worlds population into a population, not only fiddling as Rome (the planet) “burns”, but worried over where the fiddle string replacements will be coming from.  I am not arguing for blind trust of government.  As long as opportunism is a threat to common understanding, in democracies, even the will of the people can be diverted and subverted.  But in a democracy; if you hate government, you by inference, hate all the rest of us, for we are the government by vote.  Back in the day, some conservatives would tell the protesters of the 60’s and 70’s; ‘America, love it or leave it.’  I guess that proclamation was highly conditional.

The Bigger Issue (You know; the deepest one most of us avoid like the plague for as long as possible.)

Unconditional love, on the other hand, is self proved, requiring nothing of ignorance.  It is where true faith in Life can reside, becoming a threat to darkness; those that would use ignorance as capital.  Love is thus spiritual, in the full sense of that word, permeating existence with light, yet visible only to those with open eyes to see.  An open heart is a requirement for eyes to see greater truth and union, otherwise pain can divert attention, attention that can be lost, and so, misdirected.

We each have the spiritual challenge to be in this Love, agents of this Love, or I will likely be an agent of something other.
