HYPNOTIZED

Some of what goes on politically confuses me.

Actually, most of what goes on politically confuses me.

I don’t like it.

Being disinterested in politics is kind of crazy….but I don’t know how much I really care.

I watch them all on television like I’d watch a bad dog down the road.

I don’t stop to pet him while he stretches his chain to “greet/get” me…..and, at the same time, I need to know where he is so that he can’t reach me.

Politicians….I need to watch them for the same reason.

Good men/women don’t get the attention they deserve….and the calculating crazies rise.

I guess it’s like avoiding the bully on the playground, though….learning the ropes so that you limit your interaction….but never crossing the blacktop to put a stop to the torment.

If you “know”….but don’t do anything to try to shut it down….well, I suppose that you’re sort of an accomplice.

Not fighting to bring the good ones to power is kind of like ignoring a bully.

This election is different than any that I’ve seen before….full on craziness.

It makes reality television look like hard news.

You would think that someone so well versed in reality television would know how to behave in the real world.

Pretty crazy.

The theory that NLP is part of the deal (NLP is Neuro Linguistic Programming….a way of influencing people with the choice of words that we use) makes a lot of sense.

Who wouldn’t expect a master (by his own description) negotiator….manipulator….to be well versed in this technique?

That’s no surprise.

What’s scary is how many people are behind it.

Are we so easily hypnotized that the worst seems like a viable option?

Where’s Jimmy Stewart when I need him?
