Don’t Follow Blindly!

Much of the world hails Fidel Castro as a hero of freedom.
Here, he is reviled.
Much of the world considers Barack Obama to be a mad bomber – destroyer of people and nations.
But here he is considered a wonderful, intellectual progressive.
See how experience guides decisions?
What if Mr. Obama droned YOUR town?
What if Cuba sent much needed doctors into your town?
Nothing is as cut and dried as it appears on the surface. Or on a bumper sticker.
When American officials and the news media denounced Nelson Mandela as a bloodthirsty communist terrorist, the African continent knew who their friends were.

News used to be called “The First Draft of History.”

Now? News is mostly thought-control which gets spoon-fed to us by multimillionaires on corporate payrolls. People like this, as many have now come to realize:

Do you seriously believe that someone who gets paid $30,000 PER DAY (yes, PER DAY) has even the slightest interest in telling us the truth?
Never forget the old adage:

“Whose bread I eat, his song I sing.”

If an informed opinion differs from my own, I try to find out why.

THAT is why all through the election I posted my objections to electing Hillary Clinton and BEGGED her supporters to correct me. I did this time and again. I even offered to vote for Hillary if anyone could overcome HALF of my objections.

None so much as tried. In place of discussing my objections they merely insulted me in the most vile ways. Then the flew off into the Oppression Olympics, saying a person whom they glibly perceived as a well-off white male can NEVER “understand.” A convenient cop-out. And these are the self-described LIBERALS!

In 1964 humorist Jean Shepherd defined a SLOB as any person who doesn’t know the difference between thinking and believing. Shepherd wisely predicted that in the future such people will shut out all thoughts that do not conform to their beliefs. This is a perfect description of BIGOTRY.  The day which Shepherd predicted has indeed arrived. Political partisans have devolved into fundamentalist religious nuts. When I opposed Hillary, I was treated like a heretic who was charged with spitting on the Holy Books. The Ignorati have discovered politics and now bigotry reigns. You are either with them or you are EVIL.

Rev. Eliot’s Law #4:
Don’t believe what you are told to believe.
