An Explanation Why Most People Don't Want To Hear The Truth

By Doreen Hannes
February 13, 2008

Now, more than in the past 100 years or so of our nation's history, we have a great number of people who sense that something 'just ain't right'. So what is one to do? First of all, you begin a quest for the truth about any particular topic. Pick one. Currently, you can choose from the NAU, Real ID, NAIS, the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" that aren't in Iraq, the Law of the Sea Treaty, the water boarding issue in Gitmo, the legality of the "income tax," the effects of the 'free trade' agreements on our nation, the "Clean Water Restoration Act," the "Military Commissions Act", Agenda 21, the "CFR" or heck, for some real light study, how about the institution of central banking and fractional reserve banking systems? There are a lot more, but this should at least give the idea that we have a problem. A very, very, big problem. "It's like that infamous elephant in the living room that no one wants to talk about and most don't want to see.

Yet those giant piles of elephant excrement keep getting on everyone's shoes, so many have no choice but to begin to contemplate that where there is crap, there is a crapper. And before one can get the elephant out of the room, you have to admit that there is one. Some people will sit with brown stuff running down their faces and look at you with a blank stare saying, "What elephant?" They don't even notice the manure."

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

I especially liked the end paragraph...

"Sometimes the furniture is part of your immediate family. You give them articles, places on the internet to visit, links to government documents on the topic, and endless reams of documentation and mainstream news articles, and they toss back a flippant accusation that "You're just a conspiracy theorist. None of this is that bad." Usually you'll ask, "Did you read what I gave you?," and they'll say something like "I scanned some of it, but didn't really have time to spend on it. My kid had a soccer game and then our favorite show was on, so we got pizza on the credit card and just enjoyed the entertainment." They just told you they don't know, don't care, and asked that you please stop confusing them with the facts…When you find that you are engaged in conversation with a coffee table, stop. Save your breath for those with questions. No impassioned plea ever moved a couch. Don't talk to the furniture."

I must have a furniture store for a family!! hahaha

rotf

lmao

you and me

about 50% of the people on

about 50% of the people on the daily paul fall into this catagory. Those who accuse others of wearing tin hats is what this is about.

While that may be true---you must admit

that a little bit of education goes a long way here, and some of the naysayers will research subjects and minds can be changed.
(Unless the naysayer happens to be a troll!)

very true..

very true..

The demoralized are immune to truth

It's hopeless if they don't know how to think.

Bbbb

bump

Thanks for posting!

Then there are those folks who notice

the elephant feces, and ask about it, and when you begin to show them the elephant, they disdainfully say, "How preposterous! That cannot possibly be!! I know that is indeed elephant manure, but still….I'll acknowledge the tail and leave the rest to my imagination, thank you. Dismissed."

so true

How true!!!

I have an ongoing battle with an old college friend who is also an Obama Zombie.

The said friend, says "Atlas Shrugged" is his favorite book, but then defends the gov't at all costs.

He is pro-bailout, thinks NPR is great, etc.

I have had him smell the big pile o' elephant shite, and he still says "how proposterous."

Why do I even bother?

Cheers,
