By asking people to open their heads to new thoughts, I am not requiring anyone to accept or approve of thoughts, I want people to consider the information presented, mull it over, weigh it against the other things they know, then decide what parts to reject and which to accept as valid. Say the word "Israel," or "Republican," or "Occupy Wall Street," and if, in response, a mind shuts down and refuses to hear anything else, then yes, that is a stupid mind.
"Open your sorry excuses for heads to new information and thinking". What you therefore indirectly state is that I have a sorry excuse for a head (I'm stupid) if I reject new information and thinking...despite the fact that most of it is lies, suppositions and half truths. Yet according to you, I'm stupid for rejecting this 'new information' and smart if I do.
Perhaps you may notice that while he puts that statement forth as a quotation, it's not what I said?
All that you are doing is programming people like a computer.
"people who reject new information are stupid"
OK, I admit I'm old. And, true, more than one young lady of my acquaintance has called me a rascal. But sneaky? Moi? I'm as pure and simple as, well, whatever is pure and simple these days (my snow has an odd color about it). Are you implying that there is a touch of the devious in my writing?
I knew that you were up to something, you sneaky old rascal.
BUT C'MON GUYS, BE HONEST. Haven't you seen these problems over and over on threads and between individuals?
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family

Milt, Milt, you must free yourself of this suspicious attitude.
This kink in your personality which leads you to be suspicious of your fellow man.
Crush that wicked spirit! Ask forgiveness from all of those you've have looked at askance. Pardon that turkey, set it free. Replant that Christmas tree. Stuff those Easter eggs back up the bunny's, well, you know where to shove it. Fund a minaret in Jerusalem. Open a Jimmy Dean's sausage plant in Iran. Make all things right again.
(I've failed if i didn't get at least one more smile out of you. Be happy.)
Shamed?!? I'd be proud. And when it comes to kinks, I could give you a few names and phone numbers of .... well, maybe I'd better not, I have a reputation.
Would you feel "shamed" if I added you to my friends list? After all, I do have a... um... you know... um... kink.
