Does anyone actually believe in hypnotism..? I was at an event once with a Hypnotist (not the party kind, the serious I have a business in hypnotizing type) and I told him that I didn’t believe in hypnotism, and he said to let him try, he did… He failed…. He tried for about 3 hours in all… Nothing…
I didn’t see anyone get hypnotized, and to this day, I still know it to be non-sense…
What people see as hypnotism is just weak-minded fools who are prone to external pressure and influence…
Think for yourself, and you can’t be hypnotized… (aka: Use your own brain, and don’t let others tell you what to do)…
I’m ‘on the fence’ on this one. I think there might be something to it, but I don’t know enough about it,
Please check out this short video called “Are You Hypnotizable?” and try what she says. You may be surprised at what happens:
You can't be hypnotized against your will. There are also a small percentage who can't be hypnotized, though they're usually low IQ and you seem intelligent. I'd say you were probably resisting the hypnosis, since you stated that you don't believe in it. My dad was a physician (GP, anesthesiologist, and county coroner for 20 yrs so he also studied forensic pathology) and I have a degree in psychology. Most people routinely enter light trance states without even realizing it, while watching TV or reading. You can become hypnotized while riding in a car under certain conditions. If you listen to the rolling cadence of a lawyer addressing a courtroom, they're using the techniques of hypnosis to put the jury into a light trance to make them more susceptible to the lawyer's case. Hypnosis has nothing to do with being weak minded; most of those who find it easier to enter a trance state are usually on the upper end of the IQ scale. Usually, it's just a state of hyper-concentration. Only about 10% can enter the deepest level of trance where they become unconscious, and it's very common for those people to be habitual sleepwalkers. And hypnotic suggestions won't work if someone tries to make you do something you're morally or psychologically incapable of, such as murder. The majority of people who are hypnotized feel they're wide awake. If this guy who tried to hypnotize you wasn't a physician or psychologist, he probably didn't really know what he was doing.

Whether or not you believe the “conservative” Republican non-sense or not…. He obviously was NOT a conservative.
I don’t know a single conservative who wants to harm or kill innocent people… The fact that he did this, proves he was no “conservative”…
We believe in a “right to life” (that’s why we dislike abortion), and it’s clear this fool did not…
Conservatism means there is no compromise. Conservative Islamist and conservative christians, are those that destroy in the name of their God. The guy was a conservative protestant, that was looking for Catholics to murder, out of the fear, his church has spread about the Catholic churches New world order.
Do you see how warped some of you guys are? You think that a conservative cannot harm other people? You are WAY too emotionally invested the the word "conservative."
Newsflash: Radical Islamic terrorists are literally some of the most conservative humans on Earth.
Dylann Roof was a conservative.
The White Supremacist that shot up the Jewish center in Kansas was a conservative.
Timothy McVeigh was a conservative.
Crazy people can be found on left, the right, and everywhere in between.

Is it just me, or does anyone else just want to walk up to that kid, smack him upside the head (which you know will make him cry) and then just look him in the eye in full seriousness, and just scream “SUCK IT UP LIKE A MAN!!”
Rinse and repeat as necessary….
And not stop until the message sinks in??
I don’t fully blame the child, his mother facilitated this (obviously) but I have this feeling the child has never seen the “firm guiding hand” that some young men need in order to KNOW that they ARE young men…
As much as masculinity has been discouraged lately, I have NEVER once heard a woman say that “she wanted a girly man who wears makeup or dresses” (honestly, I doubt some would appreciate the competition)… And since we all know the species ONLY propagates with the joining of a male and a female, I’d say that Men should be masculine, and women should be feminine.
But hey, what do I (and all of human history) know… Clearly the “sissy” crowd know better…

You can pick your friends, your rear, your ears, or your nose… But NOT your gender…
You can change your way of life, your hobbies, your habits, and your oil… But again, not your gender..
Genetics are what they are… Hormones may change the outward appearance, but YOU are not “changing”…. You’re only fooling yourself…. Eventually reality will catch up to you (it always does), and as they say… Reality can be a B*tch….

So, since the stats aren’t on the boys side, how long until depression, isolation, then possible suicide will set in for this child who was clearly raised by horrible parents?
To be so confused at such a young age…. I can only imagine how hard his life will be (should he not end it, when he realizes the reality of his situation in a few years)…
These people never become “accepted” by the collective, and that ruins most all of them…. Shame that this mental disease is affecting this child at such a young age…. Even bigger shame that his parents seem to facilitate it….
The sad part is that the way we are going, these people may very well be accepted into the collective in 20 years. The collective may look very different.
I often think of the story of Jonah. Jonah did not want to bring the "word" to Nineveh because he knew that if they heard and repented, that our merciful God would stay his hand; and that is exactly what God did. Nineveh was not wiped out for another 500 years. They repented and got a "stay of execution", so to speak, but God's promise still happened much later.
I have been hoping for a resurgence of God fearing men and women in this country - for a "stay of execution" - but all I see is that we are spiraling down further and further.
"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear." - 2 Timothy 4:3
God help us!

While I don’t doubt that P.P. has some employee’s that are “in it for the right reasons” and that some facilities MAY in fact be women’s health centers, that doesn’t change the truth about what was caught on those videos..
Everyone keeps saying that the videos have been doctored, but if I am not mistaken, didn’t the orginazation release the FULL unedited videos? And aren’t they like 6 – 7 hours long each? So, you could end this whole debate by having the congressional panel (with the P.P. reps and people from C.M.P. ALL sit down in the same room for a week and watch all 7 unedited videos TOGETHER…
Wouldn’t that solve ALL the questions?
So, why isn’t this done? Because something or someone wants this charade to continue… P.P. will NOT be shut down, or defunded… It’s a government program and has all the rights to life that it loves to deny to not-yet-born humans…
Sick people… Abortion is MURDER, no matter how you want to justify it…. If you don’t want to be a murderer, either have your baby, or don’t get pregnant to begin with… It’s called personal responsibility… If you can’t have sex responsibly, or deal with the consequences, then you are too immature to be having sex to begin with…

No offense to Mr. Root, but when his articles are about Obama, it always seems as if he has a chip on his shoulders.. I don’t usually like reading his stuff about Obama (plus, I don’t need anyone’s help deciding I am not an Obama fan or that Obama can’t be trusted.), but on his stuff about others (like this on Boehner) he is dead on…
Boehner was as flaccid as a 95 year old, when it came to being a leader… Inept at every level… His biggest talent seemed to be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory…
He cut his deal… He will give away all he can before he leaves, and then he will disappear to a cushy well-funded (by both sides) position where he will make more than any of us, doing half the work (if not less) on the backs of other people and their money….
He’s a typical politician… In that regard, party doesn’t matter, they’re all the same filth….

Just another LEO who doesn’t deserve his badge…
Too many of those these days…. It’s a shame… Jerks like this moron make the few good cops looks like fools… If he didn’t read her her rights, cuff her, or tell her specifically that she was being detained, then I believe she has cause for “assault” charges.. Sounds like he grabbed her arm pretty hard….
My thought is, Captain needs to be busted back down to deputy or maybe Janitor, to make some room on that ladder for some of the folks in his dept. that actually deserve that title… There ARE good cops, and there are even a few GREAT cops…. But this guy seems to be neither (or at least proven by these actions…).
@OniKaze -- "Jerks like this moron make the few good cops looks like fools." Excuse me...the *FEW* good cops? The vast majority of law enforcement officers are decent, courageous men and women who put their lives on the line DAILY so that you and I can sit peacefully in our offices or at home and not have to worry inordinately about the wolf at the door.
I'm sorry: you have a pooint about this *one* cop -- from what I've read here (and in all fairness, we're only getting her side of the story), I'll agree that *this* cop was way out of line. However, I will NOT agree to paint all cops with such a broad brush as the one you're using.

While he’s here, his staff will be under Obamacare, so he will be forced to provide them as their employer, but if they are following their religious dictates (and if they won’t, why should anyone else) they won’t be using them, and should have them to spare….
Only makes sense right?
 September 22, 2015 at 11:35pm
Why should I care about what you think? You’re a man appointed by other men to a position that some feel is special… But at the end of the day, you are nothing more than a fellow man. Why does your belief in foolish notions like “man made climate change”, or the evils of capitalism have any more weight than facts or history?
Since when did a priest (no matter how over glorified) become something greater than any other normal man?
Your title does not earn my respect… Only your deeds can do that, and I find this Popes to be wanting, so far….

Ben Carson is right….
The question was not “would you support a muslim running for POTUS”? The question was “COULD a muslim become POTUS?”….
I believe that answer is NO… Why? Because the American people (I believe) would never elect a muslim.. I have no problem if a Muslim wants to run, but just don’t start crying when the people don’t support you…
I also agree with Carson’s take on Sharia…. We already have a code of laws in the U.S., we can NOT allow for a 2nd set of laws that only apply to a specific group of people (which is why we need to get rid of ALL of the special group laws… Everyone is supposed to be equal under the law, Muslim’s may THINK they’re special, but I don’t think they’re special at all…
To me they are like the “gay lobby”, they clamor and cry for equal treatment, but when you actually treat them the way you treat everyone else, it’s never enough…

Of Course, some advanced people live in D.C.
I mean, someone has to be smart enough to pick up the trash and clean the toilets in D.C…
Did I miss something, did “Dirty” Harry become the Senate Majority Leader again? Did I miss an election? I went to sleep last night, and woke up this morning, and I am pretty sure it was only like 7 hours I was out… Did I miss an election, Vote count, and Victory Lap for DemocRATs in the Senate? Since when does the Minority Lose.. I meant, Leader get to say what the Senate WILL and WILL NOT do?
I know Mitch McConnel (I misspelled that, but for him, I don’t care) isn’t fond of proving he has any balls, but I must have missed him giving his last set to Harry “Got-my-Butt-Mugged-for-messing-with-the-wrong-people” Reid (cause you don’t get that screwed up from a simple fall)…..

While I feel bad for the “Migrants” that really are fleeing war (not just using it as an excuse to “invade” another country), I can’t help but cheer at this video..
A country that takes a firm stance at enforcing it’s boarder laws… I wish maybe we could learn a few things from them and try it on our boarders… But maybe instead of water cannons, maybe use real ones (or at least real guns with rubber bullets)…. After a few illegal “invaders” see some compatriots get hit by artillery shells or injured by rubber bullet, I bet the people stream flowing across our boarder would slow down….

Those days are over. The days where people would actually fight for whats right, and not tolerate the slaughter of innocence have passed and are likely to never return again. People have been desensitized to all the violence.. People like to blame arbitrary things like Video Games or Rap music, but lets be honest, video games and rap music (not rappers or people in rap industry, yeah they have) have never killed anyone.. PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE.. It’s just what they do.. If not by gun, by knife… If not by knife, by club. If not by club, by hand… Violence is in our base nature. We try our best to rise above it on a personal level. But some fail. Now, when you have a 24/7 news cycle we “see” that failure more often and rather that see the tragedy (like we did maybe 20 years ago) its so common now that we just chalk it up to “just another person killing someone”…
And that is the shame….
We see death so often reported now, that one story is indistinguishable from another… Sure this is different, because it innocent babies being slaughtered for Money by the closest things to Demons that exist, but the end result is the same… Just another dead human, killed by another human..
I hate it, but our reality is not what it once was.. The Murder-Lobby (democrats) will never let “Abortion” die… But your baby? Of course… Cut it up, and serve it on a platter (for compensation, of course)..
How many people were at Ole’ Joe’s little speech (that were not required in some way to be there)? Now lets say, compare that to the 20,000 people that were at Trump’s little shindig the other day (not sure, was that a pay event, or a free one…? Even better proving my case if people had to pay to be there…)
I like Trump, but as the C.O. of our country? I am still unsure.. I like his attitude, and maybe a term as V.P. would be better, but I would bet more people would want Trump to run, than want “ole’ Joe” to run…
But boy, a Biden Presidency would be amusing (from a comedic stand point…) providing he doesn’t train wreck our country more than The Current Fool has….
You are right… My Mistake.
But paying a game here. We could just create a new word group. Everything is up in the air these days.
– But people don’t realize how important the things they take for granted everyday. That actually have allowed civilizations to prosper. And allow some many people to have time to complain about things. When some are just surviving. especially since burning books is no longer needed. They can be changed on the fly. And no one will be wisher. Unless they compare with the original. If they can.
Soon, we may need sea shells for currency. ..lol
– That what happens with using recycled IBM hardware on the go!
Again, thanks. And have a good weekend. And hope the electricity never goes out. Because one day. All the “How To” digital books will not be available. And the ones who did are gone. And know one wanted to remember the basics of the old ways.
Maybe, some point in the future. A book, or a “How To” book will be worth more than gold. Along with a slide ruler.

If only 6% of people get it right, I was expecting a trick question, or maybe something hard…
But no, another 12 / 12 here…… That was silly easy stuff…
