When ideas come to you that may be different, are you going to be open to receive them and apply them to your life?
Most of us here have forgotten about smiling. Who has the time to care and share? We have gotten so lost in the un-necessities and urgencies of life, that the truly important values have been forgotten. Our mental state is clearly reflected on our faces. Why has this happened?
You don’t have to drink and drive to catch a DUI nowadays. You just have to beJessie Thorton, apparently.
The 61-year-old retiree was arrested and charged with a DUI, even though his blood alcohol level came back a 0.00. And no, there was no glitch in the Breathalyzer test.
The reason he was arrested? The officer told Thorton:
“I can tell you’re driving drunk by the look in your eyes.”
Here’s how it all went down. Thorton was pulled over around 11 p.m. on his way to pick up his ER nurse wife. Officers in Surprise, Arizona said they witnessed him crossing the white line in his lane. That’s when this happened:
“He (the officer) walked up and he said ‘I can tell you’re driving DUI by looking in your eyes,’” Thorton told ABC 15 in Arizona.
Thorton, who had been working out at a nearby LA Fitness, told the officer his eyes were bloodshot because he’d been swimming at the gym’s pool.
“He (the officer) goes, ‘Well we’re going to do a sobriety test.’ I said, ‘OK, but I got bad knees and a bad hip with surgery in two days.’”
The officer then made Thorton take a sobriety test.
“At one point, one of the officers shined the light in my eye and said, ‘Oh, sorry,’ and asked the other officer if he was doing it right,’” said Thornton.
Thornton said he was then placed in handcuffs and told to sit on the curb.
“I couldn’t even sit on the ground like that and they knew it and I was like laying on the ground, then they put me in the back of an SUV and when I asked the officer to move her seat up ’cause my hip hurt she told me to stop whining,” said Thornton.
At the station, his BAC test came back with all zeroes and a drug recognition expert was called in to examine Thorton. Of course, the expert determined that Thorton was completely sober.
“I would never have arrested you.” The expert wrote a statement, saying, “…in my opinion Jessie was never under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”
But it was too late. Thorton’s car had been impounded and the Arizona MVD had been notified. His license was suspended and he was ordered to take a drinking and driving class.
Thorton was eventually released from custody to his wife. The DUI charge was later dropped, but Thorton has filed a notice of claim against Surprise for $500,000. ”This is a case of D-W-B, driving while black,” said Thornton’s attorney Marc Victor.
Damn, sure is! These cops should be ashamed!
One should not be confused as this is 100% intentional and not some casual accident. The goal is to alter the way the kiddies think about things in terms of feelings and to convey their feelings via the written and spoken words they use. The goal is social-emotional lexicon. The goal is to boil down all emotions to a few pictures and then force the kiddies to point to the picture that represents their feelings at that moment. If little Johnny picks the wrong emot-icon, he will require remediation and meds…
In the novel 1984, the lexicon is whittled down to a few words that are used to describe most things. Example: Instead of using a complicated word like excellent or wonderful, it would be replaced with the statement double plus good.
The goal is to create the bee hive mentality (group think) which is based on seeking acceptance and approval of others for every facet of one’s life…
Make them happy! If you make them angry they will attack!
How can someone be disappointed or frustrated? In order to be disappointed one must have some expectation of a future event. Folks are attempting to plan and determine every facet of their lives on a daily basis and then they will be disappointed when one of their master plans does not materialize as expected. Expectation > frustration > disappointment > anxiety > sadness. It is a race to the bottom of the emotional chasm.
Mom and Dad should be appalled at what their kiddies are being taught at the cost of 15-18K per year per child. No child will be left behind, because all of them are being dumbed down to the LCD. They are all being left behind!

Smart people do not always do things in a smart way; sometimes smart people can do confoundedly, irrational things like gambling away all their money on the stock market, or forgetting to take adequate clothing for a back country hike in the middle of very changeable weather. Whatever your background, training, Intellectual Quotient, or experience, common sense can be learned and applied in everyday situations. And while it may seem provocative suggesting that smart people don’t use common sense, this deliberate association is merely to highlight that everyone has lapses in common sense. The more we’re trained to think one way (by our workplace, family, culture, etc.), the greater the chance that sometimes we allow sloppy or auto-pilot thinking to take the place of common sense. Common sense isn’t a one-stop-destination; it’s a way of thinking that needs constant nourishing and application, and this article provides one way of looking at developing your common sense a little further.
According to Merriam Webster, common sense is about exercising “sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts”. This definition suggests that common sense depends on not over-complicating the situation (simple), applying experience and general knowledge to the situation (sound and prudent judgment), and implicit in this is self-trust that your considered experience is valid for future situations. Karl Albrecht calls common sense practical intelligence. He defines it as “the mental ability to cope with the challenges and opportunities of life”. He explains that common sense is situational, dependent on context, and that your common sense in one aspect of your life might be excellent while failing abysmally in another aspect of your life. As to the purpose of common sense, it is basically thinking that prevents you from making irrational mistakes or decisions, a thinking approach that may open your eyes to the possibility that insisting on being right prevents you from seeing the bigger picture.
We’re human; we’re fallible. And our brains work in certain ways as a means of providing shortcuts to ensure survival in a world where being chased by predators could end your life. In a modern world where caves and saber toothed tigers are no longer a constant companion, some of that reactive, split second judging can land us in hot water as we react instead of reflecting, assume instead of teasing apart the realities, and follow habit instead of challenging its continued utility. Some of the things our amazing mind is capable of doing to override common sense include:
This isn’t an invitation to insanity. This is a request to consider that your sense of reality isn’t real. What you see is what you’ve programmed your brain to see. And once you start down the slippery slope of self-confirmation that reality is only ever what you see it as, you’re open to the possibilities of bigotry, selfishness, intolerance, and prejudice because you’ll constantly seek to make everyone and everything else conform to your standard of reality, and your standard of “what’s right”. By divorcing yourself from this one-sided reality, and learning as much as you can about how other people perceive the world and our place in it, you begin to make room for common sense to grow because your sense is built on “common” experiences, not just your own.
This is the part of your thinking where true common sense resides. The part that takes a bit of time out from the cleverness, the brightness, the importance of everything rushing at you right now and suggests that it’s time to add a dose of cold water to the excitement. Reflective intelligence is about being able to stand back and view the bigger picture so that you realistically appraise the situation or environment directly around you rather than forcing yourself to conform to its suitability or practicing wishful thinking. After an accurate appraisal of the situation, a reflective mindset enables you to set goals that are realistic given the parameters you’re working within, and to take sensible actions toward meeting those goals. Daniel Willingham cites examples of people who throw money at the stock market, or people who choose unsuitable life situations as people who made decisions or took actions without using reflective thinking. Rationalizing that external signs seem fine while ignoring complete mismatches to the person you are or the beliefs you hold is a denial of common sense. In other words, just because other people do or use something effectively isn’t a sign that it will suit you too; you need to put your own reflective mind to work on each situation to decide whether it will be a fit for you, your lifestyle, and those around you directly impacted by your decisions.
The previous step has just suggested that you need to reflect more before you take decisions or act. But the obvious flipside to reflection is the reality that some things need very fast thinking and rapid decisions that will produce sound results. Rapid cognition is the type of thinking that tells you that you’re not going to connect with a person the moment that you meet them, or that a poorly placed ladder is going to fall sooner rather than later and needs to be shifted pronto, or that you need to quickly jump out of the way of an out-of-control car now. How do you marry rapid cognition to reflective thinking under the rubric of “common sense”? It’s simple – spend your reflecting time wisely so that you will react wisely when quick thinking is required. Common sense builds on your reflection over past experiences, enabling you to refine your understanding of the world and how it works time and time again. This is in contrast to a person who only ever reacts on gut reactions, biases, and has failed to reflect on prior experiences. Reflection will bring about sound “gut reactions” or fast assessments of situations because your reaction is based on having taken the time to work through errors and successes of past experiences.
There are things that every human being should know how to do and not leave to another person, things that go to the heart of personal survival, self-knowledge, and long-term health and safety. In this way, you can learn common sense through practical knowledge and application, informing you accurately when times are harder or when you must react quickly. Some of the common sense basics that every human should know include:
Knowing how to be resourceful. Resourcefulness is the art of “making do”; it’s about taking small things and making them go a long way with a little imagination and elbow grease. It’s about being able to thrive under difficult conditions and still prosper and not feel deprived. Resourcefulness is a key part of using common sense, and again, it’s a skill that liberates you from consuming to live.
Take the philosophy, the psychology, and the popular theories behind how we think and add this understanding to the active ways in which you can use your common sense. Read How to think “outside of the box” to get some great ideas for restoring your sense of relying on your own innovative thinking processes. And Karl Albrecht suggests that the following methods will help to keep your practical intelligence (common sense) in top shape (and it’s recommended that you read his book in its entirety):
If you put in the constant hard yards of thinking things through carefully for yourself as well as learning all that you can about the world and other’s thoughts about the world, you’re well placed. You don’t have to be highly educated; you do have to be open-minded and curious. And realize that this is a process, not a destination. You will have to make the mental effort throughout your life as to which messages you absorb and which people you allow to influence your thinking. Even this article is but one source of guidance on common sense â€“ analyze it, critique its applicability to your own circumstances, and cherry pick, discard, or adopt those things that suit you or don’t fit with you. After all, doing so just makes plain common sense.
A decision handed down by an Indiana jury in late April 2013 has concluded that outright fraud put both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the ballot in that state in 2008.
Two Democratic operatives in the state were convicted of the illegal scheme.
A Fox News report provided the details:
Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.
Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.
According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race.
Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.
If the scheme was exposed during the election it could have lead to Obama being removed from the ballet.
The scheme was hatched in January of 2008, according to affidavits from investigators who cite former Board of Registration worker Lucas Burkett, who told them he was in on the plan at first, but then became uneasy and quit.
He waited three years before telling authorities about it, but if revelations about any forgeries were raised during the election, the petitions could have been challenged during the contest.
A candidate who did not qualify with enough legitimate signatures at the time, could have been bounced from the ballot.
The case raise questions about whether in 2008, then candidate Obama actually submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified for the primary ballot.
“I think had they been challenged successfully, he probably would not have been on the ballot,” Levco told Fox News.

Authorities never have “issues with authority”
by Jon Rappoport
May 21, 2013
It’s simple. Authorities invented the idea that other people have issues with authority.
Psychiatrists rank right up there among the elitists setting the standards. They, for example, have concocted a little fictional doodad called Oppositional Defiance Disorder. And magically, they never accuse their professional colleagues of having it. No.
Why should they? They amuse themselves by deciding when civilians are overly defiant and need pacification (drugs).
But we’re also talking about character structure here, because psychiatrists turn out to be exactly the people who want to slap labels like ODD on others. They like that. So they labor in universities and hospitals and earn their degrees and state-issued licenses, knowing that soon they will have that power.
Having gained it, there is nothing to be defiant about. They’re sitting on top of the heap, which they call science.
Don’t let the comical tone of this excellent animation fool you. This topic is deadly for all of us.
The forces behind GMOs are so well-funded that resistance seems futile. But it is not. Countries such as Hungary, Russia and many others have already banned their use, based on the findings of doctors in those countries who are concerned about public health and nutrition.
All that remains is for the US to do the same – and to uproot these beastly Franken vegetables, wherever they can be found.

General Wesley Clark is the former Commanding General of U.S. European Command, which included all American military activities in the 89 countries and territories of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Additionally, he was Supreme Allied Commander in Europe (SACEUR), which granted him overall command of NATO military forces in Europe 1997 – 2001.
Clark was awarded awarded a Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Purple Heart for his service in Vietnam, among numerous subsequent medals and citations. He graduated Valedictorian of his class at West Point.
Flashback: At a Democracy Now! event held on March 2, 2007, former presidential candidate and Four-Star General, Wesley Clark (Ret.), described a memo he was shown that the Bush Administration planned to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran between 2007 and 2012.
Although these alleged plans appear to be moving slower than initially intended, Bashar al-Assad’s days as the Dictator-for-Life of Syria appear to be numbered – and the plans noted in the memo cited by Clarke would appear to be on track. [AB: Or is it?]
(As an aside, there appears to be a strong occult connection with the date, March 19. The invasion of Libya via the UN and the 2003 invasion of Iraq were both done on March 19, as with many other military conflicts, cited in the video, above).
Newsflash: On March 26, 2011, it was reported that “scores” of protesters in Syria were murdered by the security forces of President Bashar al-Assad. Bashar was forced to make concessions after these murders failed to quell the uprising – but even his concessions have failed to stop the protests. His days as the Dictator-for-Life of Syria appear to be numbered – and the plans noted in the memo cited by Clarke would appear to be on track.
Flashback: On ABC’s ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos,’ which aired on March 5, 2006 Wesley Clarke is quoted as saying:
“I think when you look at this country, right now, we need a 2-party system that works. We need Congress to do its job. We need a real investigation of some of the abuses of authority that are apparently going on at the Executive branch…We’ve never finished the investigation of 9/11 and whether the administration actually misused the intelligence information it had. The evidence seems pretty clear to me. I’ve seen that for a long time.”
