    tea cups at Disneyland.  Complete with vertigo.

    The most violent element in society is ignorance.

      It's like cricket:  Mitt hits the soft shiny ball pitch as far as it will go, and then runs back and forth between extremes till somebody throws the ball back in.

      Real plastic here; none of that new synthetic stuff made from chicken feathers. By the morning of 9/12/2001 the people of NYC had won the War on Terror.

    •  Riding the Wild Teacup: (0+ / 0-)

      Crazy rides set you up for a deep purge (usually, whether you like it or not!)  We have real problems in this country -- but its usually not shown in the dog and pony show propaganda the networks put forward for ratings.  

      They're concerned with keeping us busy with nonsense, so we don't take our power back, by changing the laws of the land to what's sensible.  The want us mesmerized with their "show politics," their party soap operas, their celebrities, and whatever other shiny lure they can bait you with.

      But you don't have to watch or listen to them.  Focus on what's the problem ... where was it working; what laws kept everything balanced; what laws were passed that broke it down, or network of laws; and work to restore the good laws.  Form petitions at Change.org.  Network with others.  But get active.

      The worst thing you can do is nothing ... turning on the TV and watching the political circus is deadly.  The great thing about taking action is, it'll clear the vertigo out of you quick.
