True Brain Power

After watching the movie ‘Lucy’, which I thoroughly enjoyed even though I was a bit disappointed at the ending, I started thinking…yes that is rare.  I also watch ‘Big Bang Theory’.  Has there been a study which shows a difference in brain usage in people with greater and lesser intelligences?  It becomes obvious, even in the real world, that Sheldon Cooper lacks common sense and the social graces, even with an idetic memory and apparently knowing everything about everything. My belief is that most of us know a little about most things, where it appears that geniuses know a great deal about a small portion of knowledge, but may know very little about everything else (less than the average person).  On the other hand, people who we may call stupid, may know even less about anything but something about everything.

With these examples, are we all exhibiting the same mental capacity, and brain power?  It’s just distributed differently between individuals?  Do we all have the capacity to redistribute our brain power, and will we lose brain power from some areas as we increase brain power in other areas?

The general thought is that humans use 10% of our brain, though I’ve discovered many websites that state that this is a myth.  I’ve also discovered that the myth websites can’t tell you what percentage we use, but state that we all seem to use all portions of our brains.

A final thought, why do people in politics appear to only use that potion of their brains that make them greedy?  Does an excess of money have a direct correlation with the lack of common sense, or ability to understand all but the wealthiest of humans?  Is money and greed to them, like baby talk to the rest of us?

The Public Against Crime: Police Informants

As sent to the Governor of North Dakota:

Why the police shouldn’t be required to go out of their way to train informants?
1. The criminals are adults and should have known what they were getting into…and should know right from wrong.
2. They committed a crime, and whether they go to jail or become an informant is their choice.
3. Once you start selling drugs, or become a mule for smugglers, you know the consequences–Jail, Death or Both are the only ways to get out of it.
4. Here is an important note, The informant didn’t go to the police to get training on how to deal with the drug dealer before they started dealing drugs for them, so why should the police be required to train them in on dealing with the people that they are/were already dealing with.
5. The adult informants parents should only be allowed to get involved with the situation if the parents had their adult child deemed mentally incompetent to comprehend such dealings, otherwise, keep your nose out of the police business. Your kid is a criminal and must be dealt with.
6. If the parents want to blame someone, they need to look at how they raised their kids, and determine what they could have done differently, and why their kid turned out the way they did. Your teaching may be flawed. Your kids education starts at home.

If a police department wants to give some training, they should be allowed to, but not forced. You may ask yourself, where is my forgiveness? I’m not the one who the criminal needs forgiveness from, until they do something to me personally. The people who have died from an overdose, get hooked on drugs and need some type of therapy for the rest of their lives, and can’t get a decent job or finish college are the ones that need to give forgiveness. And yet, even if the dealers may be forgiven, they must still take their punishment for wronging the public, as crimes are committed against innocent bystanders for drug money.

Let’s increase the punishment every time a parents whines about their criminal adult children getting a bad deal.

As far as States claiming that they are legalizing recreational marijuana, even though it is still a federal offense, doesn’t that make the Governor of those states, a drug lord? I believe it does, and they should go to jail for their crimes!

Who Am I?

Who am I?

This blog post is for the purpose of answering other people’s questions about me and who they should strive to be in their own lives instead of pretending to be someone that they are not.

I don’t have a mullet, pony tail, a mun, or any other odd hairdo.   I don’t have stupid crap carved into my hair to support anything (though I support different hair styles or going bald to support those with cancer or other health issues). I don’t have the beard of a sultan or a lumberjack.  I don’t have Javaman ears using gages to give me enormous holes in my head or any other piercings on my body.  I don’t have tattoos, I reserve the right to hold off on tattoos until I need permanent dots for radiation treatments for some form of cancer, and I don’t want to look like a drug dealer with tattoos crawling out of the collar of my shirt, or like an addict with my arms completely covered with them.  I don’t wear a boom microphone or any other Blue Tooth device mounted on my head to show my self importance.

I don’t carry a murse or wear a bro (or manzier as the Seinfeld show debated the two terms).

I don’t wear ear buds while I’m driving since headphones are illegal to drive with, without a medical need.  I use the turning signals on any car that I drive (appropriately:  turning corners or changing lanes) at least 99.999% of the time, if not more.  I don’t have smoked lens covers on any of the safety devices on my vehicle or any vehicle that I drive, which is also a sign of self importance.  None of these traffic safety items are used for the purpose of avoiding the police because they like to inconvenience me, these rules are followed to protect you, and to protect me from you.

I don’t smoke because I don’t do unhealthy things to impress anyone and I don’t do electronic cigarettes which also appears to be a sign of self importance.

I have a flip phone and I’ve decided to block texting, and it doesn’t have Internet.  I don’t have a smart phone because I don’t want to be addicted to a phone (if that’s what you can call them, since most people won’t actually talk on them anymore).  I don’t need to be permanently connected to a world that allows me to be connected to everyone except those standing in the same room that I may be in at any given time.

I’m not gay or bi for a few primary reasons…have you seen a woman?; if it becomes normal, than the opposite sex will only be for depositing cells in a Petrie dish in a lab, to create more gay people; gay men do to other men that which most women do not want a man to do to them, and lesbians do to each other, things that women want men to do to them except they use accessories.

Digital television is a fraud committed against the people of the U.S.  by the government making it mandatory for all television to be transmitted in a digital signal.  The government gave out discount cards at the beginning of this program and the discount was purchased by the government with money borrowed from China.  The digital converter boxes are still made in China, the digital TV’s are made in China, so are the DVR’s, DVD players, game consoles, modems, digital antenna’s, and all of the rest of your digital everything’s.  As consumers, part of your purchases go toward building the Chinese nuclear weapons program, and the rest go to the rich people who run the corporations that have your purchases made in China.  If you go to military base/post/naval exchanges, most everything that they sell are made in Chinese and other communist countries.  Our government has figured out how to support Communism by having the United States consumers spend all of their money on communist products.  You complain about the government turning into a socialist/communist government, but with every purchase, you support socialism/communism yourself.  I check labels, and leave things on the shelf that I don’t need, that support our political enemies.

I don’t follow political parties of any sort and when I try to figure out the party that I would belong to, I find that I’m what is called, a centrist.  I’m at the converging center of all political parties since I believe in the best parts of every party, and leave the extremes alone.

I don’t eat spicy food because I want to taste the food, not feel the food.  I don’t eat weird flavored potato chip or other odd foods simply to show that I am willing to do that, though I will try things that I may not like.

I don’t watch sports on television, at all, and don’t care to see most sports in person (especially pro sports or college sports) because they are overpriced for what they are worth.  My philosophy: without cheerleaders, there wouldn’t be a need for sports.

After reading this short list of things about me, can you answer the question, Who am I?…One hint, I’m not trying to be you, or someone famous for good or bad reasons.  I don’t do things to imitate anyone under the guise of being an individual.  When you do the same things as a large group who say that they are individuals, you are not an individual.  You have become a clone of that group.

 

The final answer to Who am I? is…I am ME!

Welcome to the real world!  Not the one the you live in.

Worst of Two Evils…

Are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, as our only real Presidential Candidates for 2016, a punishment from God for the greed and corruption that our nation and people are inflicting on ourselves?

Posted in U.S. Government | Leave a comment

Why didn’t I think of this before…

Everyone: Write in your vote in November 2016, whether you are for Trump, Clinton, Sanders, or any of the other previous candidates or someone who isn’t running for president (including yourself). They need to count all of the write-ins by hand, so…if enough of us write in our vote, it may have a strong effect on future elections, and it may bring many of the rats out of the wood pile.
Reasons: 1) We may be able to cripple the Electoral College who places votes for us (and in many cases, aren’t required to vote the way we want to). The Electoral College is basically made up of Electorates that are voted into their position by the political parties that ‘We The People’ don’t trust anymore. Our votes don’t directly count anymore, so too many people don’t vote at all since some political party (possibly not their party) will make up their minds for them anyway. 2) If enough people write in their votes on the East Coast, their states polls won’t be final until Alaska and Hawaii polls are closed. This prevents people and Electors from the western part of the nation from ‘voting for the winner’ which could sway the final election toward someone that will do more harm to our nation, than good. 3) We can show the government how We want the country to run, and we can stop the bullying from Congress and bad presidents when they decide to give themselves a raise and benefits that don’t apply to us, when everyone else is losing money and jobs.
If all goes well with this plan, it could take weeks or months to count all of the write-in ballots, which would be the First Action of the People (Citizens), will have been able to take against a rotten apple (Congress) in decades.
If you have other thoughts as to why this would work, please comment with initials or your name and city and state, so that I can give you the credit for your ideas (or if you don’t want to be identified, tell me that also please include your city and state with anonymous). I will update this next week if we get some good ideas!
Thank You People of the United States of America for helping me to drive out the bad seeds before the weeds take over!!! 🙂

$15 per hour minimum wage is a failure for our nation…

If you raise minimum wage to $15 per hour, everyone who was making $7.25 (National minimum wage today) to those who were making $15 per hour, will all be making minimum wage. If you were making $20 per hour because you started at minimum wage and worked your way up (that’s almost $14 per hour difference), you will NOT be guaranteed to make more than $7 above minimum wage. Right now in North Dakota, for the working population, $20 per hour is very high wages. My next job will be closer to $12 per hour instead of being close to $20 per hour, and I have been working for 35 years, so a national increase to $15 per hour should bring me up to minimum wage. Now my own government wants to increase my soon to be wages to minimum wage and those who worked hard and increased their wages over time, will also be making close to, if not, minimum wage.  This brings everyone that was making up to $20 per hour down to the poverty level.  Social Services should increase exponentially.  Nice??? 😦

Job Seekers and the Employer

Based on the Article from J.T. O’Donnell J.T. O’Donnell is a LinkedIn Influencer
CEO of CAREEREALISM & CareerHMO | Recruiting | Employment Branding | Job Search | Career Development Training | Coach

Recruiters need to seriously consider how they are rejecting candidates this year. It could be damaging your employment brand…http://bit.ly/1OohWjM

My Thoughts: If you only drop off an app, and don’t get an interview, you maybe don’t need to be notified, but if you’ve had an interview, it shows bad taste on the employers part not to notify you of your status, whether you remain under consideration after a month, or if you were not selected for the current position, but will remain on their radar, or if they didn’t think that you would be a good fit whatsoever.
Also, there should be employer protections from a bad employee for giving an honest reference of their work. Why do you think that the work ethic has gone down the toilet? If I’m running a business, I want good people to start with. Good employers and good wages are also built from responsible employees. If employers can only trust that the employees will be there for them on payday, the employee gains no value in the eyes of the employer, and the employer has no recourse against a bad employee without reams of documentation. This leads to the employer not caring for the employee, the employee under-performs and the viscous cycle begins. Wages go lower for the same work, higher education levels are expected for the lower positions with the same crappy wages. We are feeding the poverty monster by creating employers that don’t care and employees that aren’t going to work hard because the phone is more important, or they are just plain lazy because the next employer can’t hear about bad performance. (Big part of the Corporate World also).

Now I’m looking for work again, and a smooth talker with a texting fetish is more likely to get the next job than I am.
