iddee; I generally choose my words carefully and infrequently, at least in these pages. I also sincerely 'believe' what I say, and say what I mean, despite being accused of the opposite from time to time, otherwise what's the point? Am I able to get a point across 100% of the time? Hardly, but it greatly depends on some interesting factors and of course, the location. In this case the COFFEE HOUSE.
Some around here are labeled as a 'trolls' or worse for choosing an 'eyes wide open' approach to the universe, I suspect that doing so takes too much away from sporting events and other such things designed especially to 'distract' us from 'what's really going on behind the curtain' but None Dare Call It Conspiracy………….
This place is a Forum, at least in name, the definition of which includes the words 'an opportunity for open discussion' and TBH this place, the COFFEE HOUSE ain't always very open :(. too often descending into ridicule or open contempt and denigrating comments toward anyone with an alternative, usually misunderstood viewpoint coming primarily from the major contributors, sometimes getting pretty ugly, pretty fast and then some folks just disappearing, never to return. :-\ Perhaps that's what's behind the behavior, I DON'I KNOW :-D Our mammalian brains still maintain a reptilian brain at its core, which when examined can explain some things but not all.
Has humanity become the most fearful, fear-driven life form ever to have lived? I can only say …yes :'( :'( Is it an accident that we've become this way? NOOOO!!! BUT- because it was no accident, that means 'we' can change it. "WE" can change the direction were on whenever we choose…………….Do you see where I'm going with this?
Unfortunately, Its 'All in fun' becomes the standard proclamation, but rarely seen is any accountability (too many of our citizens are parroting our politicians and pundits instead of the other way around IMHO), Just fun, just a joke, is that what it is? I 'believe' it is something else (a very human disorder, the 'need' to always choose sides) and honestly, the evidence substantiating it, that's freely thrown around these pages is kinda overwhelming if looked at objectively and honestly (I probably respond to about 5% of what I read, and resist the temptation to offer anything, trying to keep the Blood Pressure in check).
Regardless of the writer, It is always the responsibility of the reader to resist the temptation to, as has been said by many before me and for good reason, 'read between the lines' ;).
Sorry to drone onnnnnnn….
