orangetom, You're exactly right here. The dialectic is imposed regularly on racial, religious, political and sexual issues. It is exhaustive and
distracting to the 'affected parties'. I refuse to be baited any longer by any of these props. My real concern lies in what is actually going on
while we're collectively distracted by the 'circus'. People can't be left to their own accord, they might begin to see their fellow Americans as
men, women, fathers, mothers, bankers, architects or even soldiers. This would be disasterous. America being a true melting pot of a like minded
respectful and decent citizenry would mark failure for tptb.
Yes, That is the correct word to describe what is happening "dialectic". And correct again when you say .."distracted by the circus." Somewhere
long the line of events years back I caught on to the distraction technique. IT took the form of being diverted to debating and arguing what I term
Placebos..so that you never see the bulls eye. YOu constantly get your view deflected at a tangent from the bulls eye. Where most people are aiming at
is not the target.
This is a regular diet in politics and not just in this country. I too weary of this type of spoon feeding.
I work in shipbuilding with people of colour. It matters not to me their colour. What does matter on certain of the most difficult jobs is
Character. Do they have the right stuff to go the distance and not get you killed or injured. I know who can cut it on certain jobs and who cannot. I
have on occasion told a foreman I dont want so and so ...get me someone else. It is not on the basis of colour ...it is on the basis of
Like that blond bimbo who recently passed away..I am so tired of this Don Imus drivel...I have turned off my radio ...shouting "Shut the H-ll up."
THe "Usual Suspects " have that immediate effect on me anymore.
I turned off my radio or turn the channel on the blond bimbo stuff too.No thanks..not for me!! I can spoon feed myself..thank you.
I am not intrested at all in political masterbation techniques/emotional hijacking by anyone. I find it insulting. Pardon the crudity but I find those
expressions appropriate to describe this type of low life deception.
And you are correct when you say..left to their own accord....most people dont want to bother anyone or be bothered. I dont have a problem with people
banding together to live. TAke Chinatown...that is their buisness. Or the Vietnamese.
On my fathers side they are Phillipinos from Hawaii. On my mothers side they are German/French. Neither of them hang around their people much. They
are loners. I have no problem with this and I do the same for the most part.
I dont give two hoots who likes or approves of it. Like many I dont want to bother anyone or be bothered. Especially to be bothered and insulted by
the "Usual Suspects." I find this highly insulting. Particularly when you can see it coming.
YAIWETA..What I dont like is when I detect that something or some issue is STUPID!!! That is where my real prejudices come out. That is where I apply
my "Stupid filter."
I used my "Stupid Filter " at Wal Mart last night. The lines were long and the service poor..I left my shopping cart right there with two half
gallons of chocolate ice cream, a box of dreamscicles, smoked sausage, bacon and some other perishables. I just walked out. I dont have to put up
with poor service on my valuable time. It is the same with the " Usual Suspects." They too give poor service. No thanks!!!
THanks for your reply,
