DUmmie FUnnies 03-22-06 ("Are 'they' planning on closing down DU before the election?")

As regular readers of the DUmmie FUnnies know, my DUmmie Ants, although highly entertaining, are severely short on any kind of reasoning ability whatsoever. They see absolutely NO cause and effect springing from misguided legislation as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Are 'they' planning on closing down DU before the election?" The "they" that DARE NOT MENTION ITS NAME referred to here is McCain-Feingold of the infamous McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance "Reform" Act. Meant to (unrealistically) control the flow of money in political campaigns, the RESULT is a SEVERE restriction on our free speech as you can see in this ARTICLE. The problem is that any criticism of the McCain-Feingold Act, the WORST piece of legislation in years, by the DUmmies would mean criticism of their favorite loon, Russ Feingold. Therefore the DUmmies have to be content with merely criticizing a vague "they" which in their tiny minds must be EVIL rightwingers. Let me assure my DUmmie Ants. I have NO INTEREST in shutting down DUmmieland. Without your site up and running, I have NO comedy material for my DUmmie FUnnies. Therefore I place the blame squarely where it belongs, which you WON'T do, on the authors of the legislation that threatens the FREE SPEECH of all Web blogs and forums---JOHN McCAIN and RUSS FEINGOLD. Of course, I don't expect the DUmmies to blame their icon, Feingold, at all but his name is on that HORRIBLE legislation as its co-author. So let us now watch the DUmmie Escape From Reality once again in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who plans on slamming John McCain no matter what restrictions his dopey legislation (with Feingold) permits me, is in the [brackets]:

Are "they" planning on closing down DU before the election?

["They" are McCAIN-FEINGOLD but we dare not mention it because that anti-free speech legislation contains the name of our blessed icon, Feingold.]

I heard something yesterday that "politically active web sites" are being targeted by a bill now in congress to close them down for 60 days before the election. "They" want to make sure things are fair. It was on Air America and NPR .... Anybody know anything about this little act on our road to a dictatorship?

[That bill in Congress is already a law. It is called McCAIN-FEINGOLD. Please thank the authors, John McCain and Russ Feingold, for that piece of incredibly crappy legislation.]

How will "they" be doing this if the servers are located overseas?

[Don't forget to thank RUSS FEINGOLD for the necessity of getting a backup server in the Bahamas. And I'll send a thank you note to JOHN McCAIN for the same.]

I think "they" see the blogs as real threats to their control of the media.


What does closing down websites have to do with fair election....

[Why don't you ask McCAIN-FEINGOLD?]

Well, we'll just have to start a knitting forum over at Yahoo
...and talk about anything other than knitting!

[Why don't you talk about how wonderful your icon, Russ Feingold, was for being the co-author of a piece of legislation that forced you to start that Yahoo knitting forum?]

They still couldn't get away with it. Let's not loose touch with reality. Something so bold and so obvious would not sit well with the public-- the Bush Admin. is quite good at taking hacks at our liberty when it's subtle.

[I do blame Bush in this case for signing a piece of CRAPPY legislation co-authored by McCAIN-FEINGOLD.]

They're getting away with these things, which is why we must keep an eye on them always. But I don't think they'd ever get away with shutting down political sites- it would be impossible and it would be too blatant.
But I could be wrong.

[Russ Feingold will prove you wrong by siccing the anti-Blog Police on the bloggers.]

So the plan is to ensure freedom by stopping the flow of information? That's... bullshit. The flow of information is essential to the democratic process.

[Why don't you whisper that into Russ Feingold's ear?]

The only way they could get away with this is by imposing
a total news blackout of the election, also. Somehow, I think this is a pipe dream by all those Freeptards who think they're thinking deep thoughts when they try to come up with ways to shut down anyone who points out the obvious--that they're all WRONG. There would be an ACLU suit and an injunction overnight. If all else failed, I'm sure there are a lot of us out here in internet land who would be overjoyed to hock whatever we have to pay for that foreign internet server. I can think of no better use for the few pieces of jewelry my mother left me. She'd be proud.

[Blame Russ Feingold (and John McCain) for having to hock your Cracker Jack Box rings.]

We're dealing with fascists. The idea itself isn't even the point - it's not going anywhere. Even if it does, you're right - of course the ACLU will sue, and of course they'll win. The very fact that the freepers want to legislate political websites - of which I would imagine a strong majority are liberal - means that their idea is to move closer to state control of the media, which is one crucial step along the road to one-party rule and a dictatorship.

[Let's see... A piece of incredibly CRAPPY legislation co-authored by John McCain and RUSS FEINGOLD threatens your free speech rights so it MUST be the fault of those EVIL Freepers who are universally OPPOSED to that law. It must be FUn to have a scrambled brain.]

That can't be constitutional, and I can't believe even most repukes would support that. This sounds like a pure neocon idea

[Actually it is a pure Mc-Cain-FEINGOLD idea.]

If you believe that campaign finance laws are a bad thing, and some people do, I can understand being upset by the FEC extending those laws. But if you think campaign finance laws are in the public interest, then the idea of extending them to the Internet shouldnt' be upsetting.

[Actually I DO believe that the McCain-FEINGOLD campaign finance law is a BAD thing which is restricting FREE SPEECH rights on the Internet. Unfortunately the DUmmies are too DUmb to realize that there is a connection between the two. Cause and Effect.]

it's a scheme to treat blogs the same as prohibited paid ads
by various interest groups

[Send a thank you note to McCAIN-FEINGOLD for dreaming up that scheme.]

I have blogged extensively about the evils of McCain-Feingold, which I have called the "Blatant Repeal of the First Amendment".

It's funny that these people manage to come down on the same side as freedom-loving conservatives, and at the same time 1. not admit it, and 2. actually blame conservatives for it.

John McCain is not a conservative. Tits Feingold is not a conservative. George Bush is not a conservative. So how exactly can this be a ploy of the "far right", which is definitely conservative?

Many people know the importance of self confidence and try to boost their own by using many different personal development models. Self confidence to most people is the ability to feel at ease in most situations but low self confidence in many areas may be due to a lack of self esteem. Low self esteem takes a more subtle form that low self confidence. So if you are tired of feeling not good enough, afraid of moving towards your desires and goals, feel that no matter what you do it is just never good enough, then your self esteem could do with a boost.

Every day we make decisions based on our level of self-esteem. We also exhibit that level of self esteem to those around us through our behaviour. 90% of all communication is non-verbal - it is not what you say but ho you say it that matters! Your body language, tonality and facial gestures can all tell a completely different story to your words. It is our behaviour which influences others and people react to us by reading our non-verbal communications. Have you ever met someone you just didn't like although on the surface they seemed polite and courteous, or you met someone who seemed to speak confidently yet you knew they were really frightened underneath and just displaying bravado?

Parental and peer influences play a major part in moulding our level of self-esteem when we are children and in our early years of adolescence. The opinions of the people closest to us and how they reacted to us as individuals or part of the group was a dominant factor in the processes involved in forming our self esteem.

As adults we tend to perpetuate these beliefs about ourselves and in the vast majority of cases they are ridiculously erroneous. It is time to re-evaluate our opinion of ourselves and come to some new conclusions about these old belief patterns.

Ask yourself some serious question:
Is your long-held view about yourself accurate? Do we respect the sources from which we derived these beliefs? Most of the negative feedback we bought into as we were growing up actually came from people we have little or no respect for and as adults we would probably laugh their comments away! Yet the damage to your self esteem was done when you were very young and you still carry it with you to this day.

Is it possible that even those people you respected, who influenced your self-worth, were wrong? Perhaps they had low self esteem also.

As adults we have the opportunity to reshape our self-esteem. Try to judge accurately the feedback you receive from people you respect. This process will allow you to deepen your understanding of yourself and expand your self-image. It will also show you were you actually need to change things about yourself and were you don't. Many people are striving to better themselves in areas where they are just fine or actually excelling and it is only because they have an inaccurate picture of themselves in their minds due to low self esteem!

Setting small goals and achieving them will greatly boost your self-esteem. Identify your real weakness and strengths and begin a training program to better your inter-personal or professional skills. This will support you in your future big life goals and boost your self-esteem and self confidence to high levels you didn't existed!

Learn to recognise what makes you feel good about yourself and do more of it. Everyone has certain things that they do which makes them feel worthwhile but people with low self esteem tend to belittle these feelings or ignore them.

Take inventory of all the things that you have already accomplished in your life no matter how small they may seem. Recognise that you have made achievements in your life and remember all the positive things that you have done for yourself and others. Take a note of your failures and don't make excuses like "I'm just not good enough" or "I just knew that would happen to me", analyse the situation and prepare yourself better for the next time. If someone else created success, regardless of the obstacles, then you are capable of doing the same! Remember everyone has different strengths and weakness so do not judge your own performance against that of another just use them as inspiration and know that what one human being has achieved so can another!

Surround yourself with people who respect you and want what is best for you - people who are honest about your strengths and will help you work through your weakness. Give the same level of support to them!

Avoid people who continually undermine you or make you feel small. These people are just displaying very low self esteem. As your own self esteem grows you will find that you are no longer intimidated by another's self confidence or success and you can actually be joyful for them! Do things you love to do and that make you happy. A truly happy person never has low self esteem they are too busy enjoying life! By getting busy living your life with passion and joy you will not be able to be self-consciousness.

If you find yourself feeling self-conscious in any situation focus on the fact that others can tell and many of them will be feeling the same. Be honest. People respond to someone better if they openly say "To tell you the truth I'm a bit nervous" rather than displaying bravo or fake confidence that they can see right through. Their reactions to you, will show your mind at a deep level, that there was actually nothing to be frightened of and everything is great. If someone reacts to this negatively they are just displaying low self esteem and very quickly you will find others noticing this! Really listen to people when they talk to you instead of running through all the negative things that could happen in your head or focusing on your lack of confidence. People respond to someone who is truly with them in the moment..

Breath deeply and slow down. Don't rush to do things.

Stop the negative talk! 'I'm no good at that' or "I couldn't possibly do that" are affirmations that support your lack of self esteem. Instead say "I have never done that before but I am willing to try" or "how best can I do that?". Which leads us to the last point - the quality of the questions you ask yourself s very important.
When you ask a question it almost always has a preposition in it. For example, "How did I mess that up?" presumes that something was messed up, a better way of phrasing the question would be "what way can I fix this quickly?", as this presumes you can and will fix it. Or "How am I ever going to reach my goal?" could be rephrased as "what way will lead me to my goal quicker" presumes that you are going to reach your goal! Get the picture? Change the quality of your questions and your results will change!

Practise these techniques and watch your self esteem rise day by day. personal development plan
