Top Ten Life Lessons

#1 - People need to know the difference between the BIG picture and the LITTLE picture

For example,

this is the little picture - this is the picture everyone gets to see.
little picture: Apr 10, 2017 - A German court in the western city of Cologne on Monday convicted a 16-year-old Syrian refugee for planning to carry out a terror attack.

this is the big picture - no one's ever going to understand it:
Half a million Syrians killed in war. No one really knows why or who is doing it. Actually we know, but no one wants to talk much about it. because the sheeple aren't supposed to learn stuff. That's why they are sheeple.

this is the little picture - this is the picture everyone gets to see.
Vicious Attack in Bangledash leaves devout Muslim BC woman blind. See how it works. We get to learn about Muslim terrorists and Muslim acid throwers, and Muslim vicious attacks.

this is the big picture - no one's ever going to understand it:
CIA funds extremist Islam. See the pattern? We don't get to learn about how the CIA pays for ISIS and extremist Islam.
sheeple shouldn't learn stuff. That's why they're sheeple. The really big things in this world are not talked about.

So what's more important? The big picture or the little picture?

Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

I don't understand the video. Kermit seems scared of the bigger monster and when the monster touches Kermit, Kermit says that the touching was unnecessary. Kermit sure seems to be discriminating against big monsters and that's offensive.

Welcome to Thinktanks mind...
You have to keep an open mind until it is proven one way or the other. You just can't take the T.V. or internet word on it.

9.) Never eat anything bigger than your head.

8.) Pet the Sweaty Stuff. Never Sweat the Petty Stuff.

7.) If they're blue and suede, don't step on them.

6.) If you pick it, you gotta eat it. That goes for your nose and butt too.

5.) Before setting out on the ice, send a friend.

4.) When planning a backpacking trip, always take a friend with a bum-knee. If you need to know why, you will.

3.) Never look down the barrel to clean your gun. Any gun. Any gun-like object.

2.) Never tell Mom to shut up, especially in ear shot of Dad.

and the number ONE Life Lesson is:

1.) NEVER call yourself Mayor Sugarplum if you expect to be taken seriously ever again.

Those who use sheeple are typically conspiracy sheep. The posted articles are just on their approved thinking list.

#2

The TRUTH is not meant for most people.

Just sit back and watch the sheeple, and don't worry about them. It's not going to happen anyway.
The majority of people don't get it .... and never will.

#3 - never watch something on TV you don't like over and over - it's a waste of time when one could be doing something constructive

There has to be an animated half hour news program somewhere that's better than the news hour.
