Bloviating Zeppelin: Reality = Kabuki Theatre

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Reality = Kabuki Theatre


Anyone besides me wondering what the Hell happened to reality?

Anyone besides me wondering what new abortion will occur day-by-day?

Anyone thinking that, daily, our lives are becoming true extensions of a version of an actual Kabuki Theatre?

Me too.

Where did we go wrong?

And when did we lose control?

Or, a question: has control truly been lost?

Or is "control" only subject to discussion when times are "bad" -- or, perhaps more significantly, when times are perceived as "good"?

Does your reality change day-to-day?

And, moreover, does perception rule reality?

I think the world is nuts, but hey, that's just my opinion. the spiritual restlessness you feel is real enough, and is rapidly growing in power. some humans desire light, some desire the darkness. I think humanity is becoming aware of the choice that will soon be upon us, time to decide, sheep or goat? tare or wheat? choose ye this day!

Do db and Deaconbleau waste everyone's time when they open their pie-hole?

It's a matter of education, and some folks aren't trainable.

Mark, waking up every day, thinking the world is just the same but it changes far beyond my control into a shape I mostly cannot recognize anymore -- my country into a shape I most cannot recognize anymore --

Greybeard: you don't see it. They brought their friends and their trolls and they permeate on a level you cannot dream. You don't see them because I now don't allow it.

I finally learned something about destructive, personally-baiting comments. Although sometimes I wish it weren't quite so.

Sometimes I wake up and I don't recognize my blog, I don't recognize my planet, and I don't recognize my country.

These days, I'm predominantly "glad," in a way, that my grandparents and even my parents aren't around to see what it is they and their friends, literally, fought for. It's such a shame. It sometimes embarrasses me.

Different take, maybe.

My reality hasn't changed. I am still the same person I've always been, my values are the same, what I believe is still the same.

There are people out there, however, who have changed, and who want to change reality for everyone to suit their twisted needs/desires.

There are also those, like me, like you, like GB and the others here and at my blog and elsewhere, who do not like those changes and will not accept them.

Unfortunately, it's them that currently have center stage. But... I believe we're holding the line, those who think like we do. Holding it and maybe getting precious inches back.

Things are bleak and if you listen to the loons, you'll think there's no hope.

But, this is America. There are more of us than there are of them and we're beginning to understand that.

Day to day and trends I used to think I understood. In the past two years not so much. The world is changing much faster and, thanks to this medium we use, more people have more information faster. Me, I'm not smart enough to figure it all out.

Honestly, after the 1950's the world went completely insane.

I believe we can get back control but it will a large amount of conservatives to fight for traditional values and help men become men again and women to be more feminine?

It's sad, but it's also true... Perception is NOT reality, I don't care how hard people try to force that down my throat! Reality is reality, and your perception is just that, a perception... sigh...

Reality remains the same.

Income cannot be larger than outgo without a high cost attached to it.

There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. Those are the most expensive lunches around.

Government is an organ of society, it does not rule society nor create society. Blood follows when government forgets that.

Save up during good times to weather the bad ones.

Your liberty is exercised in your labor. What you get for that is satisfaction. Payment is negotiable as value is in the eye of the beholder.

Those who will not defend themselves are serfs, those that will defend themselves are free.

These fundamentals do not change.

Ever.

Anyone who believes contrary to them are misguided in their outlook and will come to no good end. Make sure you identify who it is that is deluding themselves as they will not sustain a free society.

And never, ever, let others rule you through your emotions. Never feel anger towards them as it clouds your reason. Plus when push comes to shove, it also spoils your aim. Never, ever let that happen to you as emotions over-ruling good sense is the path to unreason and tyranny.

I know exactly what I see looking out at the rest of society.

Only the fundamentals will set us free.

Don't mind the horror between now and that point as it is necessary, though unwanted.

I have held off on commenting because my 1st reaction made no sense when I re-read it...

My realities have NEVER changed, but the world, and what is thought to be RIGHT and WRONG as well as what is socially and morally acceptable has changed...

Thank the Liberal mindset for ALL of that, but thank those that sat back, said nothing and allowed the Dems and Libbers to foist off their godlessness and immorality upon us...

My faith is unshakable, my beliefs have not veered off course, but sadly, much of America has gone to HELL in a hand basket...

Once that ACLU was formed in the late 1940's by an underground communist organization in the name of helping Americans, and in the early 1960's with then Prez. Kennedy signing off on taking prayer out of school, this nation began to fall apart with the culmunation of Roe v. Wade - abortion being passed nationally,which ironically was not her intent, but it happened and of course then the advent of Rap. These are seperate events culminating in the decaying of this nation, but lets add homosexuality, which was the downfall of Sodom and Gomorrah or the Roman Empire...beginning to sound familiar?

So many things and events have contributed to the downfall of mankind and the morals in the United States. I responded to your comments at my blog and ended with this, and now so fitting that I quoted it to leave on my blog, but also fitting here to this post.

"Sorry for you lady like individuals that I insult from time to time with my brash words and opinions, but my rose colored glasses came off in the ’70′s when rampant sex and lovins’ were in and I saw the nonsensical behavior taking people down low beyond the gutter back then. The thing is – I am willing to get out there and start cleaning the mess up. The problem is most people just turn their heads the other way and pretend it does not exist." ~Layla Gonzalez
