Yer Ol' Buddy Scotty's rant for the day....

Don't any of you remember Junior High School literature? Geez, we were taught these lessons as kids.....

To paraphrase the lesson: We all want to believe, and as such we assign undue credit to that person, or entity, in which we "believe". A lot of you exhibit this behavior with regard to your Political favorites, or maybe your Religious icon (Obama, Romney, God, Buhdda, the great Spirit, what ever).... so, time for the's a quote to ponder.... 

"It had become usual to give Napoleon the credit for every successful achievement and every stroke of good fortune. You would often hear one hen remark to another, 'Under the guidance of our Leader, Comrade Napoleon, I have laid five eggs in six days'; or two cows, enjoying a drink at the pool, would exclaim, 'Thanks to the leadership of Comrade Napoleon, how excellent this water tastes!'"
- George Orwell, Animal Farm, Ch. 8

Huh..... Sounds normal when someone says an animal thinks this way, doesn't it? Do you realize that almost all humans think this way in one way or another? We give our "God", or our favorite Politician, all of the credit for everything good, even if they had nothing to do with it, yet we give them none of the blame for things that go bad.  And, both the politicians, and most of the churches in this world, do their best to keep you thinking like this. They don;t want you to question, or think for yourself, or look for truth, or reason, or motivation.  They demand you follow blindly, have faith in their ability to make your decisions for you.  "Ignore the facts and listen to what we are telling you." And, sadly, most of us are willing to do this because it is easier.  Thinking for ourselves is just too hard for some folks, so we are all too happy to have someone tell us what we think so all we have to do is agree with them.  
Whether that's good or bad, is up to you.  
Just sayin'... Something to think about.

OK, Friends.....  I had an accident, and laid down my Electra Glide, and was in a coma for a few weeks....... I am back to work now, healthy and alive! I will ask everyone reading to please pay attention to everyone in front of you....every day.....apparently, the waste of human existence that was in front of my Harley completely disregarded me...and cut me off, which caused me to lock up the brakes on my bike and lay it down.  (Hell, even with me bleeding and out cold on the…
