Now, that I have mastered my YOUTUBE channel PSYGERIA, some strange things have come up. First I must say I had a little help from family and the guys at TCTV. I immediately went into an obsessive mode until I perfected getting a I hour of show into a 15 minute slot. WITHOUT ripping it, since no-one ( Not even my PC genius grand children and the Technicians at the Television Station) understands the snazzy new program for that purpose.
This is what I woke up to one morning. From one of my friends:
REMINDS ME OF YOU!
There were actually 2 more pictures, but due to me being so “Naive” as to how to move things around, originally settled for just one. Eventually a man in the UK, through FB, came to my aide and turned it the way I needed it. This little kitty really made me think.
My Grandson Maeson came to spend a couple of days with me to educate me on how things work in cyberspace, my… New-Hang-Out….. and it made me realize how complicated life …. especially to Baby Boomers…. has become.
We can no longer use language from our time.
Historical facts have been “revised” to fit the politically correct language of the 21st Century.
Important events are now off limits, they make some people uncomfortable.
The thinking of the past 40 years have become unacceptable, because it is impossible to fit it into the box we find ourselves in, not even wondering how we got here, it has become a way of “NORMAL” to fit in. We do tell the children to expand their mind, except “DAFUQ” does that mean, we can no longer be descriptive.
We demand politicians tell the truth, yet, we take everything thing they say apart and go on the attack….even when it is taken out of context. It is almost EVERY TIME.
We are unable to use words, pictures and phrases…. they have been used by someone else before us and are therefore patented.
We are unable to play the radio in the background while filming our babies, that is flagged as “THIRDPARTY CONTENT.” AND, the naked baby pictures we use to laugh about, when shown off when we are 40 are now pornographic.
I often wonder if it is harder for young people to navigate their lives, than it is for us older people to curtail ours?
One of my very nice neighbors decided to put part of a Confederate Flag on her truck. I asked why what was she thinking. She said it represented a rebel attitude to her, especially since she builds parts for Harley Davidson. I explained that it made me and many others flinch and why, and reminded her I knew for a fact she did NOT fit the bill of the meaning of such a display. We hugged, she went on her merry way and I on mine. I thought about it at length…Should I lose my friendship because of what I think or for what she thinks?
A Chinese Activist was assisted and welcomed into the United States, while our own Activists are sent to prison.
Current politics are nauseating. The campaigns are sickening and I wonder why people are so numb to the actual FACTS. We all presume to be fair and intelligent people and yet, buy into the hype and crap of what is presented to us on Cable TV. I realize we are all busy with making ends meet BUT I would think we should take some interest in our future. Those of us older people have seen it all before, shake our heads and go on about our business and the young ones have NO Idea what is at stake.
Lynn Buchanan is one of the original Remote Viewers the government employed for many years. I was fortunate to spend time with him on different occasions. We often talked about the fact that so many newcomers, to what all of a sudden became a fad (everyone wanted to be a remote viewer), wanted to present new Ideas and new ways to cut corners on the technique. Lynn would smile at them and tell them they tried the same thing 30 years earlier and it did not work AND he would continue to explain why it did not work.
I suppose the same could be said about politics, some thing just don’t work and it is puzzling to me and many others why anyone would even attempt to repeat it. The other thing, which is puzzling to some of us is that many feel young people are neither paying attention, nor smart enough to comprehend what the hype of the day is, Both, of course is utterly untrue.
A friend from FB lives in Egypt and sometimes we manage to have a conversation. We, in America were all excited about Arab Spring and the fact the people were taking charge of their destiny. We now know that due to the inexperience of the people with Democracy according to OUR definition, that did not play out the way anyone thought. Imagine, for a moment, to have NEVER to be able to vote in your lifetime and all of a sudden you are confronted with many names, no clue what any of the people represent, and you now have to decide who to vote for… no point of reference as to what the outcome of your vote might look like.
We, on the other hand, have the opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the candidates, providing we don’t get swept away by misinformation, we should rather come to our own conclusions. Either way, someone will be unhappy in the long run because their person of choice did not get elected. However…. not caring and complaining in hind site is very uncalled for. Our old people are wise and our young people are educated. They may lack experience, yet, with cooperation there is no reason why we, as a people, should be unable to make good and caring decisions for the whole country.
Newt Gingrich was asked about his fascination with Zoos, by Chris Mathews. What I understood it to be was that reptiles were his, Mr Gingrich, favorite. He explained the family and structure of the reptile family. His favorite was a cobra, and Mr. Mathews assumed it would have been a Black Mamba. In some circles some are very familiar with Reptilians and were NOT surprised at the way the story unfolded.
What DID surprise most of the country was Vice President Biden. When addressing a group of Military families, of which many had lost loved ones in the war, he went off script and allowed us to look into his heart, when explaining his own experience with the death of part of his family, his thoughts on suicide and the solutions he offered to the grieving crowd. I had never witnessed anyone speaking from the heart in such a fashion, he was a real Mensch. http://video.msnbc.msn.com/the-rachel-maddow-show/47572971
It appears society moves at such a pace that many things and circumstances have become disposable and out of date. As soon as we master an new APP, here is the next one.
In an interview in 2004 a Historian, Marie Oberg said that in the “OLDEN DAYS” we were taught to allow the past to be the past and when talking not to “BRAG” about our accomplishments. As a result, unless….as a Historian…. she showed pictures to people when inquiring about people, places and things from times gone by, people recognizing the pictures would recall what it was, or who it was they were looking at and asked about. It was a TAUGHT behavior. Now, we find ourselves in a position where the brain and our memory-banks act much like a search engine, we put in a key word and get many choices of interpretations, we pick the one closest to what we want or relay and that is how we come up with, at times, incorrect information. Yet, it is our truth as we understand it.
The pyramids around Cairo have a fence around them and are temporarily inaccessible to the people, the ones in the East of the Country are open to tourists. It has been discovered the heads on Easter Island have actual bodies beneath the sand. As we continue to dig up these sacred places… like grave robbers… we notice just how many things, people and places are a repeat of a former time.
My friend Mike and I went for a drive. We left Izzy’s and drove down Martin Way. Normally, driving north, regardless where you are, MT. Rainier is right in front of you. I noticed the mountain was not there, instead there was a mountain range, which resembled the Olympics
NOT the Cascades. I did not want to alert my friend, instead I was trying to get him to reach into the back seat and get my camera. As he struggled with that task he asked me where Mt. Rainier was, it seemed to have disappeared and was replaced with smaller mountains. So he also saw it. We never did manage to take pictures, the camera was inaccessible. Later that night someone from Omak, WA., called and ask me had I heard Mt. Rainier had disappeared for a small amount of time that day. Question is, what did we witness??…or NOT.
We stopped at Goodwill. I had to use the bathroom. As I turned to open the door, a young Mother with a double baby carriage Approached.
She looked up and read the sign: DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING IN THE BATHROOM. She removed a little girl,about 2 years old, I would say, and told the little boy sitting in the front compartment of the stroller to stay there and wait for Momma. I guess he was about 8-10 month old.
She and the little girl disappeared behind the bathroom door. I was unable to find my friend to ask him to watch the baby, so I took the stroller and the baby into the restroom with me. I announced to the mother I had rolled the stroller there. It was not until I was on the way home did I realize that in this day and age this was the wrong thing to do, I rolled the baby about 12 feet, which could have been mistaken for me kidnapping a child. The young mother wanted to be a good citizen and obey the “do not bring anything in here” rule, the old mother wanted to make sure the child was safe, What a confusing world we live in!
No matter how I, personally, would love to put our world back together the way it was, I am not at all sure it will happen that way. We were rebels, hippies and adventures when young, wanted to change the world and now it is us old fogies trying to take us back to the days of our parents. We have to be careful so we don’t succeed. Unless we ALL pull together, we could find ourselves following a GPS and end up back at Suffrage, or worse, the Twilight Zone.
Love and Light
