Goebbels New How to have Blinders on other Folks!

Henry Wilder Foote IV 11:54 AM - +1'd on www.nydailynews.com - Public

YES, the Nazi propaganda leader, Joseph Goebbels, did show the World how to PROPAGANDA, to a high level in order to keep the "blinders" on for many folks, in many countries! One of his thoughts was to say it loudly, and enough, that it makes it a "true" thing for many "folks"!

We have that "problem" everywhere in our Earth Planet, and certainly in our USA! It's interesting to me that "we" use "liar" in our "propaganda" as if it was OK - when "WE" really want the "truth", but do not "THOUGHTFULLY THINK IT THROUGH!

Perhaps, it is simply a "short-cut" to deny the "truth", that needs some more work with their "own minds", in order to go to the "best goal" for everyone!

California Democrat John Burton calls Paul Ryan a liar, comparing his tactics to those of Nazi propaganda director Joseph Goebbels � GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has been called a liar, but that pales in comparison to what a top California Democrat said about him on Monday.

Scanning: Everyones Waiting!

Henry Wilder Foote IV 5:46 AM - +1'd on www.telegraph.co.uk - Public

"Over There" in Britain, and "Everywhere Else" in our Earth Planet, there "always" SHOULD be "Balance" in "Thoughtful Thinking" - UNFORTUNATELY , too "many", still can't "see beyond their own noses" instead of scanning for everyone's "future", that "waits" for "us"!

Of Course Not!

Henry Wilder Foote IV 6:28 AM - +1'd on www.usatoday.com - Public

Of Course Not, our President is a "straight shooter", with one of the "best leaders" in our USA "history"!

Emphasis on "this snippet" here:

"... Was he offended? "One thing about being president or running for president — if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession." Obama said with a smile. He said there would be no effort to counter with a similar stunt at the Democratic National Convention, which opens in Charlotte Tuesday. "I think we'll be playing this pretty straight," he said..."

Can Find The Key?

A New / Old Simple Thought!

08/19/2012 In the middle of the night, I woke up to "think" again about "stuff" - I do this frequently, since my 81 years wants my Old Goat's mind to try to get down to the "basics", with "simple" concepts! So now, I will try to "re-tool" my thoughts about "Good vs. Bad" - so it's titled "Earth Planet in Space" vs. "Humans on Earth", instead!

08/25/2012 - A Little More Comes Out:
I'm "not" thinking about "anything" from the "past"; I'm "not" thinking about "anything" from the "future"; I'm "just" thinking about "everything" that "is" in the "present"! The Earth Planet was here before "humans" were! So, it seems to be the "truth", without argument, at least from my own mind! If that is correct, the Earth Planet must be the first, and most concerned, about humans living on it! But, for many "folks", nobody seems to "care" about anyone except their own, individual "thinking" about "whatever"!

08/29/2012 - A Little more Comes Out:
There is "power" and "BIG money" too spend, without a "doubt", in order to keep "some" leaders "IN" - so, the "trickle down" concept continues from the "top-down", where the "rich folks" from the "high" level live! There is "power" and "LESS money" too spend, without a "doubt", in order to keep "some" leaders "IN" - so, the "regular folks" from the "low" and "medium" level live!

Now, here is this simple concept that needs to be thought through:

Conservative "Thinking" STARTS from the "Right" of the "Middle", and goes way out to the very END of "VERY" CONSERVATIVE THINKING - each, focusing only on their own "whatever"!

Progressive "Thinking" STARTS from the "Left" of the "Middle", and goes way out to the very END of "VERY" PROGRESSIVE THINKING - each, focusing only on their own "whatever"!

Balanced "Thinking" STAYS in the MIDDLE, because that's where nobody can know, until they "try" something new, or rebuilt to fit better for "everyone" - because "we" are on the "expedition" to the Future!

THESE THREE BASIC CHOICES ARE AVAILABLE - "EACH" INDIVIDUAL'S MIND HAS TO WORK IT THROUGH, WITHOUT ANY "OTHER INDIVIDUAL", TRYING TO CLUTTER-UP THEIR OWN "THOUGHTFUL THINKING"!

THERE ARE MANY GOOD MINDS FROM THE "PAST", INTO "OUR DAYS", AND INTO THE "FUTURE" - THE "PROBLEM" IS THAT WE DON'T HAVE "ENOUGH" OF THEM!

SO, GET UP, SQUARE YOURSELF, AND TRY AGAIN - UNTIL ENOUGH OF "US" CAN FIND THE "KEY" THAT "WE" NEED FOR A "BETTER WORLD"! Good Night,

Farmer Insurance!

Wilder Foote (PapaFoote) wrote:

Insurance "spreads" out "risk", but "most" will "pay" for that risk, by the "premiums" instead of taking "their" risk themselves! The "Insurance" will "gain", not "loose", if the "actuary" does their Job properly!

Therefor, as in this case of "farmers", the government (through the taxpayer) needs to "balance" each "category" in order to know whether the "government" insurance risk, or the "farmer" self-insured should be the correct "choice"! This "category" risk has to be "monitored" - in order to know if the "choice" needs to be "adjusted" differently!

It seems to me to be a "basic" concept - what do "You" think?

Vote for Conservative?

WHY "SOME" VOTE "CONSERVATIVE" - STILL?

In the "olden times", we had Kings, and Queens, and Noblemen, and Noblewomen, and Other "Rich" Persons that did "Count" - BUT, NO VOTERS EVER VOTED FOR ANYTHING!

In the "olden times", the others were only Servants, and Serfs, and Other "Poor" Persons that did not "Count" - AND, NO VOTERS EVER VOTED FOR ANYTHING!

Now, in "present times", we have Powerful Persons, that "Count" - AND,TRY TO GET "OTHERS" TO VOTE, THE WAY "POWERFUL PERSONS" WANT, FOR THEIR "OWN PURPOSES"!

Now, in "present times", the others are Low, and Middle level Persons that "Can Count" - IF THEY WANT, SOMETIMES FOR THEIR OWN THOUGHTFUL THINKING; OR BECAUSE THEY THINK SOMEONE ELSE WANTS TO, FOR THEIR "OWN PURPOSES"!

A thoughtful, thinking "Conservative" will balance their progressive vs. conservative thinking, when going to "VOTE TIME", weighing their thinking carefully, before "VOTING" - WITH THEIR OWN "MIND", NOBODY ELSE'S, TO CLUTTER UP WITH IN THEIR "BOOTH"!

Why?

Henry Wilder Foote IV 7:45 AM - Public

Everyone SEEMS to UNDERSTAND about this STUFF - WHY DON'T "ALL" THE VOTERS GO TO THE "PROGRESSIVE" SIDE (LIKE ME)! I am still WONDERING, and WAITING for a "GOOD" ANSWER - perhaps, their are really "BAD" folks, with really "BAD" thinking, THAT WILL NEVER "CHANGE"? If this is true, it will take "Us", the Progressives, years or decades, to CLEAN "THEM" UP - but, "we" WILL! The Old Goat

Revolution?

Henry Wilder Foote IV 1:31 PM - +1'd on www.washingtonpost.com - Public

"This" reminds me of "our" own Civil War, and "like" what starts a "Revolution" - sometimes, it gets BETTER, like the "French" did, BUT, the "embers" from our own "Civil War" are STILL "smoldering" with "conservative thinking" about many "things" that should be "swept away for ever" - The Old Goat!

Worth Reading!

Papa Foote http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/lawrence-summers-the-reality-of-trying-to-shrink-government/2012/08/19/0e786b40-ea00-11e1-a80b-9f898562d010_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

Worth Reading, and Thoughtfully Thinking!

Every day, year, decade, century, from the "past", through the "present", and into the "future", "we" continue to choose between these options - "IGNORE" everything that doesn't seem to be apt for each person, or "TRY" to figure out where each person might thoughtfully think it best for everyone!

This simple "chose" cannot be ignored by "anyone" - "TRY" or "FAIL", that is the "way it is"!

Better Trying!

I'm now checking out "London" as a comparison - the arguing, bickering, and hate, seems to be about the same as in the USA! Perhaps, it is now time for "action" from the "people" that have the "power" to "vote", if they want to "thoughtfully think" about the "future", for better "trying"!

Power to Others!

Papa Foote My own "thinking" has gone down to the "basics", about "this" major problem of our Earth Planet, and the living humans that want things to be better - but, usually "do not use their own minds to thoughtfully think" about it! Instead, "they" just go for the "leader(s)" to tell them what to "think" - so it's only the "leader(s) that "think", instead of all the other "voters". So, the "power" stays with the "leader(s) instead of spreading out to all the "others"! We can change this - but, it needs the "others" to "think thoughtfully" with their own "minds"! Perhaps, "we" are ready, with our own "minds" - that would be wonderful for everyone - The Old Goat!

I "Agree"! From my "scan" of political scenes everywhere, it's too bad that "thoughtful thinking" always gets overwhelmed by the "Jokers" - who try to "steal" the "show"!

Actually, from "The Old Goat's" own mind - I have always wanted "serious", over "frivolous" every time!

Where Do Sentences Come From?

http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/08/13/where-do-sentences-come-from/?smid=fb-share Where Do Sentences Come From? By VERLYN KLINKENBORG

Nice thoughts - The Old Goat is 81, got a stroke about 5 years earlier, started learning about "my mind", that had to "start up" again, learned to "read", learned to "verbally" speak (not as good as I want to), BUT over these last 5 years, "my mind" has become "clearer" than ever, even during my "earlier years", when I used to think I was already on the "fast track"!

Somehow, the "little switches" in my mind seemed to be "reset", in a better order, so I good see into the "future", just over the next hill - and it is GOOD, for ME, to be "balanced" as I look to each day with "interest", and sometimes find myself finding a little"part" in this "play" that are Earth Planet spins around or Sun!

    About Me: "The Old Goat" Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of live" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagles Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner-self!

Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self "Facts" Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand! Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more! Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand!
