You are what you eat. So true mayne.
Cows + multiple stomachs = one heck of a digestive tract. But as far as people go....Let's just say that people tend to easily digest whatever they're fed in the news, or by other people for that matter.
Now it's not just the "turban-wearing boogeyman chillin in a cave" concept they throw at you. (You see, I really think there's a numerically organized manual somewhere that they use to re-direct people's attention from what's really going on.So for example, midterm elections roll around, let's use #456: "Ground Zero Mosque is a National Security Threat"; or how about #237: "The Democratic Presidential Candidate is really an African Muslim"; or what about #339: "Mexican Immigrants Threaten America's Cultural Heritage". And then, there's my personal favorite, #842: "Al-Qaeda and Saddam are Homeboys". I'm almost positive that one of these days they'll come out and say that Hamas killed off all the dinosaurs.)
In fact, I'm starting to think that all of those crazy conspiracy theories were actually put out their on purpose to keep everyone quiet; just another way to keep peoples' confidence down, and attention diverted from what's really going on.
I mean..aliens interbreeding with humans....really?
Now I know what you're thinking...and yes, there really are people who believe that.
But even if is true, I’m not too concerned about E.T. coming down and rummaging through my fridge.
I’m more worried about how dumb we’ve gotten (and I mean that in the nicest way possible). Hasn’t anyone wondered why they have referred to the situation in Egypt as “protests” for the longest time, instead of calling it a “revolution"? The former definitely sounds a lot more chaotic, and a lot less significant, no? I know the regime has not officially changed yet, but let's be real about this.
And I'm not going to be naive here, because I'll acknowledge that the politicizing can go on in both camps. The trick is to use your brain to see past all that fuzzy stuff, and recognize the real stuff. You know...like truth, justice, equality, fairness..etc, etc.
So at the end of the day, best be careful; because Halal or Kosher, the beef might just all be the same.
"O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against)rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts) lest ye swerve and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice,verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.” (Al-Qur’an, 4:135)
Any goodness in this post is from The All-Knowing, The Just, and you should be thankful to Him for that. Any weakness or shortcoming in this post is from me, and I ask The Eternally Besought, and the people, to forgive me for that. Ameen.
