War On Cancer

It’s about time!
I have been saying this for years... There is way too much emphasis by the medical community, on the screening and treatment of cancer. I lay it at the door of greed but maybe it has something to do with the alarmism practitioners’ practice, which gives them an All Knowing Power over our lives. We thus live in fear between physicals, afraid not to go for that yearly event that they guilt us into. Afraid that we will find out that we may be faced with our mortality a little too soon for our liking.  I know of a woman who went for her ‘yearly’ medical ritual and was told she had developed lung cancer. I don’t know what else her physician told her about this prognosis, but I’m sure it had overtones of the medical torture that lay ahead for her. She went home overwhelmed with apprehension, so crushing that she had a stroke and died shortly after.  I wonder how many others had succumbed to such a fate.  In this society, we give far too much power to those who brand themselves The Experts. We really need to start acting like adults and not frightened little children when it comes to sickness and death. Please watch the NBC video. thinkingblue

PS: The Experts can't touch me with their Fear Wand but when I had small children I was vulnerable. I lived with (Doctor Induced) phobias that if one of my children came down with the sniffles they would surely die if I didn't get them to the doctor and get them on a prescription of antibiotic. I raised them on the stuff, until it became known that the "family" pediatricians were prescribing antibiotics for all colds (which are viral infections) for no good reason, except that it helped line their pockets and it did more harm than good because it created the Superbug that became resistant to these miracle drugs due to over prescribing.

Critical Thinking - Facebook Image

Critical Thinking: The GOP, Tea Party and those who enjoy Fox News and Rush Limbaugh... HATE IT! thinkingblue

Concept and Definition of Critical Thinking
Why Critical Thinking?

The Problem

Everyone thinks. It is our nature to do so. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed, or downright prejudiced. Yet, the quality of our life and that of what we produce, make, or build depends precisely on the quality of our thought. Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.

A Definition

Critical thinking is that mode of thinking — about any subject, content, or problem — in which the thinker improves the quality of his or her thinking by skillfully analyzing, assessing, and reconstructing it. Critical thinking is self-directed, self-disciplined, self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking. It presupposes assent to rigorous standards of excellence and mindful command of their use. It entails effective communication and problem-solving abilities, as well as a commitment to overcome our native egocentrism and sociocentrism.

To Analyze Thinking

Identify its purpose, and question at issue, as well as its information, inferences(s), assumptions, implications, main concept(s), and point of view.

To Assess Thinking

Check it for clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, significance, logic, and fairness.

The Result

A well-cultivated critical thinker: Raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely
Gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively
Comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards
Thinks openmindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing, as needs be, their assumptions, implications, and practical consequences
Communicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems

Your Country On GOP

On which side would you like to live?
Another one of those 1000 word pictures: The Right-wing side gives us the mountains of private garbage dumps, the hypocrisy of religion, guns and corporate pollution, payday predatory loans and senseless shootings, your world according to the GOP. Left-wing side needs no explanation.

GOP Rolls Out The Guerrilla Warfare Map To Stop Justice For Trayvon Rally

GOP Rolls Out The Guerrilla Warfare Map To Stop Justice For Trayvon Rally
Justice for Trayvon Martin Rally on, JULY 20, 2013. OK here we go again, the GOP Tea Party, out in force to warn people not to go to the Trayvon Martin Justice Rallies. Listen to the nasal White Southern Boy try to pretend he cares about your safety. It’s just another ploy to keep us from exercising our rights as citizens of a “Free” country to use our Freedom of Speech. Voter suppression didn’t quite do it for them so they resort to Guerrilla Warfare, nothing new here folks. thinkingblue

GOP Tea Party Guerrilla Warfare - THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!

Uploaded on Oct 15, 2011
Have you ever noticed how the GOP TEA PARTY'S nasty comments (against liberals and democrats) are EVERYWHERE on the Internet? They spread their hate like they butter their bread. Well, Thom Hartmann has discovered what it's all about, GUERILLA WARFARE. Unfortunately, Hartmann's video had been deleted from youtube (most likely due to Tea Party requests) but I found this film that is the real McCoy, about what the GOP and its TEA PARTY are up to, and it ain't nice. What else can you expect from these dishonorable, corrupt people who want to win at all cost?

It's NOT millions of individual Tea Partiers commenting on Liberal Links, it's only a handful spreading their GOP/TP hatred upon millions of Liberal Links. Honesty and integrity is not in their vocabulary, try to imagine an honest Karl Rove. They don't possess scruples, so they try to cheat their way into the winning circle. They are an abominable lot and if they manage to win we are all in for another BIG FALL. Probably worse than the one we took in the 8 years of George W Bush.

Latest Right-Wing Hate on Trayvon Martin

Latest Right-Wing Hate on Trayvon Martin
I was originally going to blog about - ALEC's Stand Your Ground and Zimmerman's Criminal Record.
But after checking out the latest on Current TV and finding some right-wing Internet Troll trying to spread a rumor on the murder of Trayvon Martin, I had to back-burner the post and put this sick right-wing meme in front.
First, here is what the right-wing troll posted to begin his hateful propaganda stunt and my comment back:
Then he went further to prove he KNOWS of what he speaks about the murdered teenager and the (innocent) perpetrator.
My comments back (I know a waste of time)
Attn: Idaho, You are a typical right-wing pathetic fool who only uses the Internet to search for right-wing propaganda BS, to prove you are an “informed” citizen. Also, no doubt, you watch Fox Fake News and tune in to right-wing HATE talk radio like Limbaugh. (Oh yeah, facts are there alright… made-up, pulled from the anus facts.) Well, I search the Internet also, not to find like-minded propaganda but for reality and truth and guess what? I found the 'RIGHT-WIND' site putting forth this crap on Trayvon Martin, it comes from a screwball site called The Conservative Treehouse. (I would post the link but I don’t want to give this CREEPY CRACKER site any publicity)
I know you won’t read what I’ve posted below for fear it might make a CRITICAL THOUGHT pop into your closed mind and that would scare the bejesus out of you. But perhaps people, who THINK, would like to know where you get your "FACTS". Republicans have been bringing shame on our country for some time now… Many of them are hateful bullies (even in high places) and I am not going to sit ideally by, while they make our America (that’s right it belongs to ALL of us) look like a pack of moronic imbeciles!

Right Wing (nut) Lie of the Week- Trayvon Martin had
Ingredients for DXM Abuse
Posted on July 16, 2013 by drugsandotherthings

Oh the ignorance coupled with hatred…

Good old Wingnut News Daily is gleefully reporting on the “serious investigative work” of the racist far right wing nut blogger “sundancer”‘s The Conservative Treehouse who claims that the Skittles and iced tea Trayvon Martin was carrying when murdered are essential ingredients in the Dextromethorphan (DXM) concoction called “lean”.
He further claims that the autopsy shows liver damage consistent with DXM abuse, and that DXM abuse causes psychosis and aggression over the long term.

Now…where to start?

Well- first off- sundancer either ignorantly or intentionally as it fits his view, ignores the fact that the candy Skittles is NOT an ingredient of the concotion. Skittles in this sense is
simply slang for Coricidin Cold Pills which contain DXM.

Ok- now that the whole underlying premise is blown out of the water…

The autopsy does not show any signs of liver damage and indeed clearly states “normal”. And never mind that both the physical and mental damage claimed from DXM would take years of sustained abuse to manifest. And abuse at levels incompatible with someone of Trayvons age. And
abuse at levels which surely would have manifested in both social and legal knowledge of the abuse.

The hate, fear, and irrationality in our society must stop. It is especially alarming coming from those who wrap themselves in god and religion. http://drugsandotherthings.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/right-wingnut-lie-of-the-week-trayvon-martin-had-ingredients-for-dxm-abuse/

Bigotry In A Box, CHEERIOS!

In light of the HATE and division our country faces over issues of race, this youtube video is a must see. Please watch children try to explain something they don't quite understand, racism. I wished they had used a more diverse group of kids, like those who have and do walk in the shoes of Trayvon Martin, it would have been educational to hear their opinions but it's still uplifting to hear kids who have hardly witnessed bigotry first hand try to explain it. If the comments hadn't been muted because of ugly hateful troll remarks I would have placed my humble opinion in a reply to TheFineBros youtube channel creators, maybe I’ll search for a facebook membership and post it there.  Thinkingblue

De Ja Vu - Excerpts From The Rodney King Case

"Obama, he wouldn't have been in office without what happened to me and a lot of black people before me. He would never have been in that situation, no doubt in my mind. He would get there eventually, but it would have been a lot longer. So I am glad for what I went through. It opened the doors for a lot of people." - Rodney King
I believe Rodney King's profound quote to be true, which is also why I believe young Trayvon Martin need not have died in vain. I wish he didn't die at the hands of a crazed cop wannabe who saw himself as a defender of justice. But he did die, murdered for no reason. But because of his death there will be changes made for the good of our society, changes in our twisted gun laws, changes that will put a greater emphasis on protecting our kids from gun violence and yes even changes to the election of those who are willing to harm our America for the sake of their own greed and power. Bye, Bye NRA. Bye, Bye Tea Party and Hello Common Sense... Hey we all need some hope after the atrocious injustice of the Zimmerman verdict. The GOP has been destroying our country, albeit slowly but that's what they have been doing; it's about time someone take notice to how serious this is before more children die. Another profound quote from our President, as he addresses this: thinkingblue
“We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis… We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this… That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Pro Gun Update: Zimmerman Had A Civic Duty To Murder Trayvon


GEORGE ZIMMERMAN GOT AWAY WITH MURDER! July 13, 2013 from thinkingblue on Vimeo.

Saturday, July 13, 2013


Every Mother out there, take a good look at this picture... A shot dead teenager killed by a vigilante with a prejudiced attitude toward dark skin people. I don't care if your skin is white, tan or dark brown... how would you feel if this was your son...? Lying in the grass killed for NO REASON except for a crazy cop wannabe who decided this kid needed to die because in his warped mind Trayvon fitted a profile! George Zimmerman got away with MURDER tonight. I feel like Trayvon Martin's mother as all mothers should feel like they are Trayvon Martin's mother. INJUSTICE UNFOLDED TONIGHT! thinkingblue

Florida literally gave George Zimmerman license (to kill)

to make up neighborhood threats and invite violent confrontations, confident in the knowledge that he carried more firepower jammed down his sweaty fat waistband than every army on earth beheld before 1415.
I wish I were a better person than that, but I'm not. People come up short all the time, after all. I suppose it's a good thing I don't have a gun.
Gawker contributor Adam Weinstein is a Florida-based writer and editor. You can reach him via adamweinsteinwriter.com.
I came across this article today with an alarming image linked to it. I don't believe this picture was ever produced during the Trayvon Martin Murder trial, at least not on any of the media coverage. It's a very sad picture and at the same time daunting, if not chilling. When I look at the picture I see a scenario that should not have happened. A tall teenager, who was in existence moments before, laying on the ground, shot dead for reasons that only a very angry man, who saw himself as some kind of defender of justice, could perhaps tell us WHY. No doubt Zimmerman had convoluted reasons conjured up by the state (government) he lived in that passed laws which could only culminate in something as tragic as a murder of a young innocent, (using a Concealed Carry -law- and Stand Your Ground -law-) by a vigilante named George Zimmerman bearing a “LEGAL” (word should be ‘lethal’) WEAPON.  These laws are cockamamie and in reality should be called A LICENSE TO KILL ANYONE WHO ANNOYS YOU, LAWS!  Ya think?

The Ugly GOP Don't Care If Children Go Hungry

Please sign this petition to force them to care:
Hmm, I wonder if these smiling fools ever experienced hunger (not the kind where your appetite craves for a lunch break) REAL HUNGER where you get physically ill and retch with dry heaves. Well I did and I also watched my younger brothers aged 2, 4, 5 and 8 lie around listless all day without food. I hope someday these grinning idiots will get their comeuppance and are forced to feel a little empathy towards those who have nothing. All I can do is hope. Oh, and post my revulsion of their lot on Facebook.
