If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.
As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water.



After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result ... all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water.


Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.
Now, put the cold water away.
Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.



The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs.


To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat him up.


After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.
Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one.



The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked.


The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment... with enthusiasm.
Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then the fifth.



Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked.


Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.



Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.
Why, you ask? Because in their minds... that is the way it has always been!



This, my friends, is how Governments operate... and is why, from time to time, all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.

Donald Trump! Is this like a Disney comedy?

When do the primaries(?) get underway?

And and go Hilary!

Trump is just entertaining himself the same way he has in the past. In internet parlance he'd be a 'troll' who has the time & money to get a chuckle by playing the media.

I say its time we pulled back from world domination and start concentrating on our own. We bleed money and tolerate leeches, even inviting them to our own lands. I say, next natural disaster let the rest of the world provide relief. Let distraught nations rebuild themselves. Pull our corporations back to the motherland. Make our national defense be a defense and not an offense. We have the education, technology, money and resources to be independent. Stop the Pussification of America. People need to see the state of our nation and stop concerning themselves with world news. Its a more powerful message to lead by example than to try to lead by ideas.

If you think about the reason why The United States became a nation you will see that we did not like the way we were being told to live. The Revolutionary War was Britian trying to force us to their moral and social standards. We won our freedom from their oppression but we now oppress other nations in exactly the same way. Trying to force our concepts on people that don't want them.


Americans in the United States see no issue with the concept of Freedom. What we call freedom is not actually freedom but our impression of freedom.
We see a future where the whole world celebrates freedom. We fight the societies we think are oppressive and try to force freedom on them. To us, It makes perfect sense.
What most of us fail to realize is that some societies, societies that are hundreds if not thousands of years older than ours, see our concept of freedom as oppressive. They look upon our standards of living and can't see an appeal. We call them backward thinking, forced traditional or even irrational. What we fail to take into account is that they might like their way of life and when we try to force our ways upon them we become the aggressors.

The problem isn't the government. The problem is the person. 'We The People' is every citizen, from the President of the United States to the 18 year old welfare momma. 'We The People' is not the mega corporations, interest groups or the Grand Old Party (GOP). The DOD, DOA and DOJ are not 'We The People' either. Government departments are not there to TELL US what to do, they are there to be TOLD what to do, by 'We The People'. The problem is that 'We The People' set our government in place and set the cruise control and decline to steer anymore. The government barrels down the road at high speed and 'We The People' are just riding along, even when the road twists and turns, we fail to steer. Once every four years we grab a hold of the wheel but soon let go. Then we climb into the back seat and complain about such a rough ride. Most of us watch our hands, oblivious to the ride, some of us are scared shitless and grip the seat white-knuckled, while a few of us reach for the wheel but can't get a good grip on it to steer. 'We The People' needs to get behind the wheel and start focusing on the task before us. Its time to crawl over the seat. The barriers are not insurmountable. Yet...

Be Careful about what you take from the news.
NEWS = North East West South
Thats what News is. It is supposed to be a report that comes from everywhere to inform us of what HAS happened.
Speculation is not NEWS. Speculation is opinion. It should not be part of the news.
Speculation is deceiving when it is included with the news. It drives actions, sways votes and confuses the actual news reports.

Right now We The People is programmed to complain and point fingers. It's my policy that if you complain about something you need to at least offer up a suggestion to fix the problem. Eventually, If enough We The People offer up enough suggestions someone will have a solution that will work. If enough Ideas are generated someone will use the ideas to forge new ground. To a creative mind, "Wow, I never thought of that." might cause someone to unlock a fix that just needed directionalized.

The wording of headlines, the sequence of TV commercials, the types of programming and the 'going fads' cause We The People to be distracted not only personally but publicly. We are surrounded by nudges to support wealth and power. Buy This, Buy That. This is wrong, This is right. Sheeple have no idea they are being manipulated. Deep down they sense the conflict and it manifests in personal stress. Most people have no idea why things are like they are and rather than try to find out - its easier to just go with the flow. Well, The flow is leading to a garbage disposal.

The twist is that We The People are not taking steps to assure those we hire to represent us is worthy of the job. We seem to think that just because there is a term that we must endure whoever is in the chair for the duration. We can't afford the old 3 strikes you're out adage anymore. One strike and you are fired buddy.
If politicians were held accountable for their actions, banned from public office for violations and jailed for fraud we would see less riff-raff running for office and those that do would know they are accountable for everything we give them control of.


If we want to be 'We The People" we need to step up to the plate and put our names on it.

All ballot choices should have a choice for NONE OF THE ABOVE. (Reference Brewster's Millions)

If every citizen votes and the majority of the nation votes 'none of the above', the candidates should come off the ballot in favor of a new set.
Voting could be required in intranet high secure electronic stations and kiosks around the country. One citizen, one vote per ballot.
Issues could be viewable and voted on as well. Every one of them with a 'none of the above' choice.
The kiosks could be located in grocery stores, hospitals, doctor offices, libraries, police and fire stations and so on, Being open all year for your personal voting.
Once you vote on all the issues available your credentials are locked out until a new ballot is added. You can also sign into the secure intranet online with your credentials.
Your credentials are linked to your tax information. Every year you get a new id number with your taxes. No taxes and no social security number - no vote -/- no vote - your citizenship is revoked until you do. Revoked citizens lose their American rights and can be jailed not only for tax evasion but for citizenship evasion unless they leave the country.
Don't want to be a citizen, get out of my country.

Problem is, Him or Hillary will probably get elected because it is how things go.
Realistically I can't see voters putting Trump in office. Yeah, he makes a lot of noise and gets some demographics riled up and he might get some votes with people "trying to send a message" but can you just imagine how much of a joke the US would become in the international arena if he was POTUS?

So it looks like it is coming down to Clinton & Sanders on one side and Trump :wideeyed: & Cruz on the other.

It's good to see Sanders gaining ground on Clinton because for a while there it looked like Clinton was going to get the Democrat ticket with no competition.

On the opposite side it's a little surprising that Trump is continuing to lead the GOP side with not much close competition. Yeah, Cruz is gaining traction but it seems that Trump, no matter what he says, is able to hold the lead.

It'll be interesting to see if closer to the Republican primaries & caucuses Trump continues with the lead or if there'll be a sudden shift to somebody else.

Bush is out as of yesterday, joining Christie & Fiorina who previously exited.

So it looks like the GOP will be down to Trump unless the party hard-liners are able to come up with a 'Hail Mary' pass and get somebody that they really prefer in. The Dems' seem to be leading to Clinton.

I am totally disenfranchised with both parties.All Politicians..and since it is normal and ok now for Politicians to lie cause that is what they have always done, it is ok, so they can do the job of the American People.....Hogwash!
Then I do not vote for politicians any more.

Trump is not a Politician.They Attack, He does not.
He defends himself when attacked,instead of appease to them, which is what they want you to do..submit to their scrutiny
which is to belittle you, , wouldn't you? He says he wants to save the country..who else says save the country?,
that is not a politician that is lying the truth cause he can.

I am for America. Not for a group a party a idea or ideology. Since the Mena Drug Cartel from Lil Rock got exposure,
I have not liked the Clinton's since I first heard those morally bankrupt drug dealing murdering criminal enterprise known as William Jefferson Clinton speak.

What I read, I would say I agree and disagree, but agree overall maybe. <Chuckles>

Political Correctness has to go.And something to try to keep that in check also.
A reporter may ask, so you are all for killing free speech to suppress free thoughts, and trample peoples rights to get your way? Is not what I said at all.But, hey since you brought it up, is that your idea miss reporter?

I have been TV deficient since 2000..and on Restrictive Mobility (means I only walk) and have not owned a POV since 1993.
But, that is not the point.Political Correctness is.It is the most dangerous thing to be ReDefining Words,Terms,Descriptions
and other aspects of a language,,especially based on feelings....Feelings do not make smart decisions.
PC is also a form of Behavior and Thought Modification. Get Rid of it. Example:Pedophilia , its a sexual orientation now?
Wtf is up with that? So you will Accept Pedophiles as Acceptable...which has nothing to with the meaning of Pedophile.




Some Kept Text on my slant if you will...
Briefly...I really am not near decided, if I vote.I voted every year till Obama. <Makes me a racist,,even if I could not make the polls-If they want to slander me..I am a racist and the truth is obscured>

I do not like what I see and hear from our Govt, our leaders,and our media, they have utterly been failures to us, and it needs to stop..they are bleeding this country.They are killing it.
the Planet is fine.We are not.


I am so ashamed of my country and govt....we must flush all this corruption out.The Clinton's,Gore,Obama ( or we his real name is) Boxer and Feinstein,any Bush's too...All of Congress and so many many others who are complicit to treason.I mean the ones in power who call for the need to change our society and Govt all for the sake of fixing the messes you have created.
I apologize to the World and the Dead for America's mistakes.We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, has been corrupted to the point of collapse.Deception is everywhere.The truth gets lost.
Sign,write, inform your Representative that we want answers, We want investigations, we want prosecutions of all our misfit corrupted leaders of the past 3 decades. Off with their heads!


Planet is fine...We are not. -George Carlin RIP

Answers for SEAL TEAM 6 -Extortion 17

From Lil Rock,to Waco,To Benghazi, I have had enough of the established order...keeps wanting more to fix the messes

they themselves keep creating.




Thank you for reading my post....GO America...Let's Get Fired Up!

last note..Reagan won a landslide based on a wave nationalism, I think Trump may be able to capture
the growing dissent.
