Manipulation or Domination?

Manipulation or Domination?

“If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.” They call this the “engineering of consent” and proposed that “those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. . . . In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons . . . who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
What do you think?

I have been UN-FRIENDED on “FACEBOOK”…. OH DEAR!


FACEBOOK is now taking over in more ways than one, although I have been on facebook since 2009, I have come to know many things about these “CLIQUES” of social butterflies, (In the social sciences, a clique is a group of “persons who interact with each other more regularly and intensely than others in the same setting.”) that has made me become more and more disgusted with the mentality of many.
I absolutely hate to hear that kids are committing suicide, but I understand why. Everyday you see updates on how wonderful everyone’s life is…This friend just got married, that friend that is in rome, that person that just received a check for a million dollars, that woman who just lost 20 pounds not doing anything at all, and that family that always takes vacation together and are so happy….meanwhile you are in a horrible position in your life with no support and feeling depressed which makes it almost impossible to be happy for someone else. The only support your “FRIENDS” give you are cyber hugs or posters of inspiration.
Then you get those people that copy and paste other peoples quotes, and thoughts. Telling you how to live, giving you wisdom and knowledge, meanwhile not applying any of it to their own lives or forgetting them all together.
Facebook is creating problems in society and taking away our personal space, because we LET IT! Most workplaces require access to your facebook page and most accounts such as Linkedin, Google+, Elance, and more link to your account making everything completely public. Which is okay if you are promoting your own business, book you are writing, websites or other work related things, but you should definitely be careful to not mix work with personal life due to all the unnecessary judgements that could be made against you. Of course there are ways you can fight this and live a normal happy life.
First of all before I continue… You must know these important definitions: Friend: a person of whom you Like, Trust, and Respect. Acquaintance: a person of whom you know, tolerate, and watch closely with precaution. Loved one: a person of whom you may rely on, love, completely trust, is loyal, honest, selfless and unconditional.
So Facebook “Friends” are not necessarily your real friends!
I thoroughly enjoy keeping up with people in my past, family that have moved away, co-workers from that job way back when, friends from church were I grew up, and that Big group of followers in all the games I need help on.
BUT, you get those occasional “Friends” that you feel bad if you don’t accept them on your list, then creeps that seem to like every photo your in with scary comments that make you feel like it is necessary to block your location at all times or post things two weeks after it happened so they don’t end up accidentally meeting you in a public place someday!
Then you have those people that post T. M. I. (To much information) STUFF, Such as “I am on the toilet right now updating my status!” (REALLY, like I wanted to know that?) …Shortly after uploading a photo of what they left in the toilet bowl. Yeah, that is when I decide to block them!
I absolutely hate when facebook recommends people you might know and show you numerous facebook accounts of half naked selfies or porn like photos!
I love (Being Sarcastic) how you get BLOCKED when you friend too many people, that you KNOW! Yet they DONOT block VULGAR activity!
The really frustrating thing for me personally, is when someone close to me becomes offended when I do not “LIKE” a picture of theirs, Comment on their status or Answer their inbox message fast enough… (BUT, THEY SEE THAT I AM ON CHAT) Sorry folks, I have a total of 5000 friends and, YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY FRIEND!!!!
I know what you’re thinking: “She has three accounts, say what?”
Account #1 is strictly CLOSE, Trustworthy friends and family
Account # 2 is strictly Business my Music, social contacts, university and work acquaintances. 
Account # 3 is strictly Anonymous…. Explanation, If I want to join groups, local pages and or check up on my kids….this is how you do it!
I am not telling everyone to do this, but for me personally this is a healthier way for me to keep my life personal, due to all the changes occurring on facebook regularly, safety is a priority for me. I tell a lot of my friends to be careful when on Facebook, your location is automatically shown to everyone if you do not shut it off… on every message you send out, on every photo you upload and on every place ‘Friends” tag you in.
The real reason I am writing on this subject, is that Facebook WAS a really nice idea in the beginning, now it is filled with nosey, gossiping people, stalkers, porn, annoying advertisements, viruses, hackers, bullying and more. To think my children are on Facebook (Without their real info. of course) I do everything in my power to protect my children and family, but sadly things slip by.
Lastly, (Because I could go on and on) people un-friend me all the time and guess what…
I DON’T CARE!!! If you let things like that affect you then you are going to have a lot of trouble in your life my FRIEND!
The secret: DON’T TAKE FACEBOOK TOO SERIOUSLY!!!

Trapped in Reality of Hell

How FAR is TOO FAR?

It seems like the world has no limitations to what is DONE, SAID or SHOWN.

Nothing is sacred anymore, as if it ever was in the first place?

Celebrities are the worst at this, craving attention to the point of naked “SLIP UPS” so to speak,

because we all know they do it on purpose! To vulgar activity and shameless acts of adultery.

Stunts from showing breasts, to way to much camel toe!

Embarrassing?

YES, but for them it’s another day of fame on the way up,

as their reputation plummets to an all time low.

Do they care?

NO!

Reality shows of comparing the size of their #2’s in the bathroom, to shaving their private areas right in front of the camera man….ANYTHING for RATINGS!

Disgusting behavior of farting, burping and vomiting can be found on almost every reality show out there.

It’s not just the reality stars sad to say it’s on T.V. shows, movies, HBO series, magazines, internet, and music videos!

This just didn’t happen over night it has been reoccurring for years, progressively getting worse as the time goes forward.

We seem to do nothing about it, just roll our eyes around and say: “OH WELL!”

Obviously I can’t block my children from the universe (even though I would LOVE to!)

We have to live with it, I guess, or do we?

The thing that aggravates me the most, is that NOT ONE PERSON OUT THERE IS STANDING UP FOR THEIR MORALS!!!

There is an easy fix to all of this…. stop watching their movies and TV shows, stop attending their concerts, stop buying their music and stop letting them WIN!

But, why would we do that? We crave gossip, were bored and want to fill our minds with garbage instead of something useful and educational.

Why not watch Documentary’s, SCI FI, Myth-busters, Antique roadshow, National geographic, Animal planet, Hallmark family channel, Old westerns, and Discovery channel.

Why not listen to music with inspirational messages, classical, blues, jazz, or modern, but with taste such as Kelly Clarkson, Celine Dion, Adele, Matthew West, and Peter Furler.

Why not invest in REAL reading materials such as Encyclopedias, National Geographic Magazine, Health and fitness, Style, Languages, Travel,Technology, DIY, Recipes, Art, Crafts, Sewing and knitting, Child care, and Pets.

Are there really no other options in life, other than falling for GARBAGE?

We can change the way our kids view the world, we can make a better future and create a less VULGAR existence…it just takes a few steps and a moral mind. The people of this world will never change how they operate if not forced by a union of strong willed individuals.

Blog of the Year Award 2013

Thank you Sage Doyle for mentioning me in this award… I am beyond grateful and so happy to have made your acquaintance!

"The Journal of Wall Grimm"

I have been given the Blog of the Year 2013 Award from http://publictransituser.wordpress.com/  Thank you so much!

Blog of The Year 2013 Award

I haven’t been accepting awards officially on my Sage Doyle blog, but once you see my acceptance here you may understand part of the reason why.  The hardest part is nominating other bloggers.  I don’t have much time for the process.  My process entails sorting through every single blog I’m following, and I’m always concerned I’ll leave someone out.  Well, I never bothered making my Wall Grimm blog award free because, to be honest, I never expected it to receive any awards.  But now that I have received my very first award for Grimm, I am intensely honored and I have to accept.

When it came down to the blogs that I wanted to award, again I was afraid I’d forget someone.  There have been a lot of invaluable people who have supported…
