The Republican Brain works Just like a Tree.
So we have just sat through 11 hours of Stupidparty prosecuting Hillary. Once again they showed their hand, and once again they literally had nothing. They were literally making stuff up with no coherent purpose other than to look good to the morons who voted for them. These are the Stupidparty reps handpicked by Boehner and able spend $5m -$20 and counting, to find ways to embarrass Hillary Clinton.
Then I got to thinking. How does a stupidparty disciple brain actually work –and when I say disciple, I am really thinking about the people who voted for these new seven pillars of stupidparty.
So let us start at the beginning. How did we get a brain in the first place and why do we even need one? I mean plenty of living organisms get by fine without a brain. Well there are two theories; either God gave us a brain or our brains evolved. If one accepts the first answer, then I would ask why would God be upset when Eve ate the apple –because if she had demurred, then why would one need a brain in the first place.
Now if we have a brain as a result of evolution – then the question would be why. Trees do not have brains. Did you know that there are three trillion trees on the planet?
An Alaska red cedar can live up to 3,500 years. Giant sequoias can last over 3,000 years and at least one Bristlecone pine is estimated to be almost 5,000 years old. If you look very carefully through this multi trillion haystack you may happen to come across one or two of the mere six billion human inhabitants who have an average life span of a mere 71 years.
So why is it that Trees do not need a brain? Well they have one big advantage – to thrive they do not need to move. They can drink all the nutrients they need through their roots, they can procreate by dropping seeds and letting the wind or other naturally occurring event, do all the heavy lifting. They can thrive by staying planted –not moving. I think that much can be said for most other brainless organisms–like bushes, flowers, vegetables fruits and weeds.
Now let us look at the words that tend to describe those people who are not Conservative. Independent means free to wander around in numerous directions. Liberal –means free to move around. Progressive — the need to get from Point A to Point B. Socialist—free to mingle, Communist —free to mingle as long as each person can mingle to precisely the same degree— and even Libertarian— freedom for the powerful to create a fascist society.
So that would leave us with our conservative friends. conservative means to conserve, to maintain the status quo (or an idealized historical version of it). conservatives have an overwhelming need to stay planted. They plant their roots in caves (with Fox news and or hate radio zones in the basements or in their cars). Why have passports, why travel outside their tribal forest –their three foot high intellectual horizon, can never peek above their self imposed canopy to see the sky. So they are planted –spoon fed, bible sacred bread, State is Red, easily led, early to bed, next to gun shed—brain dead.
So yes conservatives are born with a brain. Either God wanted them to have a brain for the purpose of using it , i.e. any such God has the same fundamental requirement as evolution – to use the brain to get nutrients (information) and procreate –outside of the tribe (healthy DNA). So however one actually got ones brains –the rule is, use it lose or lose it. An un exercised brain will atrophy and lead to thoughts so shallow that all one needs is a bumper sticker to be able to share them with totally disinterested strangers – as one listens to hate radio on a final trip to hell.
So why has this not always been a fairly obvious observation. The fact of the matter is that since the mid 1990’s the Stupidparty brain has shrunk by 50% -by a lack of use. How do we know this? Well here is just one example – take the selfish, cowardly, ill informed notion that having a gun makes you safer. The reverse is true – guns actually make the owner and every one they come into contact with less safe, the neighborhood less safe—but that is another story. Once you believe gundermentalist gibberish, it is only a short irrational leap to conclude that more than one gun will make you even safer. Perhaps twice as safe? So having established that – we can now understand the meaning of the below graphic.
Yup, they have gone and gotten themselves twice has stupid. I wonder how that happened?
