Stupid stupidity the simpsons

All The Money In The World Wont Cure Your Stupid. 

It is not a disorder which even 1.8 million pounds can treat, something which Roger Griffiths proved after winning the lottery on October 22nd 2005. He quit his job, reformed his old University band ‘FMB’, then once that fell apart started a another called ‘The French 75’s. He bought a health spa, went on holidays, bought extravagant cars and homes and generally enjoyed his millionaire lifestyle…until he found he had no money left. He has now split from his wife, moved in with his parents, is repaying debts and has gone back to work as a Recruitment Consultant.

I have no personal problem with Roger Griffiths, nor is this blog post an attack upon him,  he is merely an example I am using to warn myself and the world of an epidemic which I am most concerned about. He is not alone, there are millions in the same stupid boat.

stupid people

See, rich or poor, whether you started at the top  or bottom, silver spoon or spoonless, give someone a pot of gold and the result will  reflect who you are as a person, (Social Injustice to a side, that is a huge topic which I wont delve into on this post). This story really emphasised the point that common sense has indeed become a super power. From Actors and Singers to Lottery Winners, stupidity has taken them from rags to riches…back to rags. Why?

Well because Stupidity is on the rise! When will we have concerts to cure it? when will there be PSA’s on TV to warn about it? Where are the health campaigns?  The screening tests? Are we closer to a cure? Why is there no vaccine for it when it infection rates are soaring? How can we prevent the new generations from catching it? Why is no one panicking!? PANIC! PANIC! PANIC!

‘Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever’  -Judge Judy

This is just a warning from me to me, me to you, you to all of yours. Money can’t cure stupid. Neither can a Private School. Nor can a Life Coach. A Religion can’t do it and neither can a Scientist.

Only you can.

albert Einstein stupid quotes

Open your eyes, close your mouth and use your brain. THINK about every single thing in your life. Then THINK some more. You don’t have to come up with answers initially, just start off by thinking. And once you have thunk extensively, start thunking for answers. They will come once you have come up with the right questions.

Everything you need to succeed is already within you, provided you have cured your Stupidity. Cure THAT and you can tackle the rest. If not you will suffer the same fate as poor Roger Griffiths.

Kim Kardashian’s Ass Is Keeping You Poor.

 

Kim Kardashian’s ass is keeping you poor. Poor and Powerless.

 

‘Is her butt that powerful?’

‘Sigh…You better believe it!’

 

Why? Well because it has a history and lineage. It goes out on tour. It takes up a lot of inches (literally) and column inches in magazines and newspapers. It makes appearances and does signings. It promotes products and has become a personality and brand. So whilst it may not be using your ATM card to take cash out of your account, it is keeping you enraptured…blind to everything else going on around you.

It is a distraction.

And it is these distractions which keep us, the 99%, from being as powerful or rich as the 1%.

It is the 1% who created these things to keep us from being equal to them. They have always done so.

When there was civil unrest in the Roman Empire, the Emperor would declare a week of Games, handing out free food and drink, as the citizens watched the entertainment. It is an age old ploy.

For as we lost ourself in distractions they staked claim to the oil fields, gold and diamond mines, to buying up land and then setting up banks to control the money. Once they had the money they then set up Governments and employed their friends and family to run Countries.

As immense a distraction as Kim Kardashian’s butt is, they knew it could not distract everyone for every minute of the day. An observation which many hormonal teenage boys may disagree with. But you see the 1% take NO chances. So they had to create more, and more…and more. Enough distractions to keep us enslaved to.

So the blame must be laid at the door of Football; Euro Cup, World Cup, Champions Cup and Egg in a Cup. Let us deliver the blame package to the NBA League, Cricket Tour, Rugby, Baseball, Hockey, Tennis and the other 1589 sports which are on constantly. Keeping you absorbed in their sporting glory.

 

Who is being signed by who? How much has this players worth risen to? What latest scandal is rocking the sporting world? When is the next tournament on?! How will you raise the money to buy your season ticket to watch each game? Have you bought the new kit? Are you spending your weekend playing the sport, pretending you are your favourite sports star.

It keeps you engrossed…and therefore oblivious.

Don’t think that the movie and film industry is getting off scott free. If I am going to blame Kim K’s butt then I have to blame them too. Err it is called fairness and equality. The big budget blockbusters full of robots and heroes. Sitcoms with damsels in distress or damsels kicking ass. There is never a week where a new movie isn’t being released…never a minute when a TV show isn’t on. There is an endless churning out of films and shows to keep us distracted. A few come along and hit a poignant, thoughtful and provoking note. They end up making £8.50 at the local artsy picture house and being forgotten, or being aired at 3.40am on a Thursday.

For the most part it is gooey unrealistic false hoping giving romance flicks, or high octane testosterone loaded mind numbing action films or leave your brain at home and lets escape from this world fantasies.

All of which keep us wrapped up in sparkly cellulose, following the silver screen stars most intimate life details, bidding for their used Q-Tip ear buds, scrambling through magazines to become informed on what is going on with their hair, what they wore to a event and who is going out with who.

The music industry is as bad. I’m sorry Lady GaGa but please answer your door, I have a package for you, please sign and accept… its blame. Its Kim K Butt type blame. Artists have become more than just people with beautiful voices singing to ease our aching hearts.

No, now they have become Prophets. Their songs are memorised like Gospel, pilgrimages are performed to them, their homes become Meccas after they die, their names and faces are being tattooed on bodies, everything from what they say to what they eat and what they wear is duplicated. They command a following that could easily storm any keep.

‘Hear Me Obama! Let my people go!’

 

So whilst we are busy finding out whether Kim Kardashian’s butt is real or not, they are working tirelessly to find the next Armenian Butt Princess to keep our lives bound to.

Whilst we are clutching onto club scarfs or waving huge foam hands, jostling about with other fans, shouting up our lungs, urging our team to victory… they are trying to invent another stupid sport to keep our hope in.

Whilst we are bawling our eyes out to the latest ‘love is everything, high school is so important, ok lets dance,  omg I can sing so listen to me, I can stick my neck out like a ostrich so make me a model, I hoard things, I drink things, I beat things, I own things and am a housewife with attitude‘ tv shows, they are thinking of how clever they struck gold by inventing the TV.

Whilst we are standing, in sub-zero temperatures for hours, to see some stick insect to walk down a bit of red carpet to premiere a new film or for some woman dressed up in salami to belt out songs about disco sticks, they are inside pleasantly warm rooms, seated on antique arm chairs, smoking a cigar and drinking a scotch, congratulating themselves on their cleverness.

Am I saying never listen to another song again?

Boycott movies?

Never play a sport or watch it?

No! 

I listen to music, I watch movies, I watch tv and like tennis. We all need some down time, we all need some escape. 

But I dont bury my head in the sand. When I escape, I come back. I turn the ipod or TV off after a while.

Dont let it become your life, for once you do, you lose your life.

Because you are allowing truly evil people to rob you of your future. Robbing you of rights you didn’t even know you had.

 

You need to look at what is going on around you.

You need to pay attention.

You need to ask questions. You need to demand answers.

You need to connect the dots.

You need to, before its too late. You need to break the cycle.

It has gone on for way too long.

We all have a right to this earth. To all it contains and to having a say in what goes on in it.

But do not think you’ll get that without a fight. 

 

 

They dont want to give it to us and they are working harder than us to keep it for themselves.

Awareness is Power so Tone Down the Distractions and Get Aware!

I Blame You Kim’s Butt

Your Thoughts?

Yours Sincerely
