Pavlov’s Dogs 2010 – Or The Conditioning of the American Public

Not much difference between us and our four legged friends. We too are products of conditioning, we are marketed to on a 24 hour a day basis, we are conditioned. Some conditioning is good, I am the first to agree. I remember when I was in fifth grade (yes in am a fossil) and we waited with much anticipation because the public health nurse was going to bring in human lungs – to show the difference between a smoker’s lungs and a healthy pair of lungs. We were not disappointed. I also remember those commercials showing a Native American with a tear in his eye, the message of don’t pollute. To this day when I reach for the Alka Selzer that little ditty runs thru my head..plop, plop, fizz, fizz ..oh what a relief it is. Yes, I am a product of conditioning, and so are you.
One of the best examples of marketing and conditioning is Marlboro, remember that handsomely rugged Marlboro man? You’re in Marlboro Country. Did you know that before Marlboro was a testosterone oozing cigarette, the motto was “Mild As May”. In a matter of month’s that image completely changed. Nobody thought of Marlboro as a girly girl cigarette.

As we grew up we learned that some of those things we were conditioned to believe in, may not be exactly accurate or realistic, and may be down right lies… We learned that if you wore Old Spice, that did not make you a man of the sea, and that McDonald’s motto “You deserve a break today” may in fact not be such a good idea, and that indulging in Marlboro country was a walk thru a health minefield.
We continue to be conditioned – in particular since 9/11 – does the phrase “Islamic terrorist” ring a bell? Islamic radicals? Jihadist?
When President Obama came into office, he “declared an end” to his predecessor’s “war on terror”. He understood that there is a well embedded association that the war on terror, means Islam. I have this time before, and I will continue to hammer it home, it was not Islam that attacked the US, it was extremist, who hijacked the religion of Islam, twisted it, perverted it for their own use. It isn’t the first time a religion has been hijacked. We could also say the same thing happened during the Christian Crusades. Killing in the name of God is obscene, but if there is one thing mankind has proved time and time again through out history is when we put the idea that God supports “us” it is a dangerous thing. There is nothing like an attack to solidify people. It is instinct, survival, close ranks. We let the media, the government, think for us. That is understandable. We were a nation in shock, in mourning. We have had years to explore, ask questions, and yet we continue to be led. We have become lazy, and complacent, letting the media entertain us, give us news in short doses because we don’t have the attention span for a more complex story. We don’t have the attention span to look at facts. It is easier to turn to the mob mentality, just be part of the herd and be led.

Fox news is a prime example of getting people to foam at the mouth.

Then of course Glenn Beck weighs in with… Let’s Have ‘Militia Day’ In Response On his radio show, Glenn Beck said, “What we’re arguing here is maybe Muslim Day with all of the kiddies and the, you know, the dragon, you know, floaties around them going to the water park might be in bad taste on 9/12.” In a long and rambling segment, Beck compares “Muslim Family Day” to a day celebrating Pearl Harbor or Timothy McVeigh. He calls for a “militia day” in response and suggests he will open an amusement park in Saudi Arabia. “Come to our yak park. The rides are so wild, your kids will be yacking at our yak park, the Yemeni yak! Don’t talk back! That would be great! We’ll have a jingle: Yemeni yak, don’t talk back. I’m opening it in the sands of Saudi Arabia.”

I find it ironic, that Glenn Beck is organizing a “Restore Honor Rally on 8/28”. From his site… Throughout history America has seen many great leaders and noteworthy citizens change her course. It is through their personal virtues and by their example that we are able to live as a free people. On August 28, come celebrate America by honoring our heroes, our heritage and our future.

Join the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and many more for this non-political event that pays tribute to America’s service personnel and other upstanding citizens who embody our nation’s founding principles of integrity, truth and honor.

Our freedom is possible only if we remain virtuous. Help us restore the values that founded this great nation. On August, 28th, come join us in our pledge to restore honor at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

Our freedom is possible only if we remain virtuous..mmm..I don’t like Glenn’s virtue.

I find it humorous to look at what Glenn has said not to bring to the rally…
NO signs (political or otherwise) as they may deter from the peaceful message we are bringing to Washington.
• Firearms (either real or simulated)
• Ammunition
• Explosives of any kind (including fireworks)
• Knives, blades, or sharp objects (of any length)
• Mace and/or pepper spray
• Helium balloons
• Sticks or poles
• Pocket or hand tools, such as “leatherman”
• Packages
• Large bags (anything larger than a backpack)
• Duffle bags
• Suitcases
• Weapons of any kind
• Aerosols
• Laser pointers
• Animals other than service/guide dogs
• Structures (i.e tents)
• Alcoholic beverages
• Other items that may pose a threat to the security of the event

Then we have the Tea Party weighing in ..
Annie Hamilton: Muslim Day at Six Flags is inappropriate for a multitude of reasons and I’m saddened and shocked by the ignorance of the Corporate folks and by the action that now must be taken by the rest of us.

First, Islam is NOT a religion, it is an ideology – the religious portion only encompasses 11 % (the qur’an) the rest is the Sira and Hadith and the closest parallel to Islam is the Ku Klux Klan – if that is Six Flag’s idea of ‘appropriate’ then by all means, hold your day on September 12th but don’t plan on expanding any time soon because not only will we ensure that you don’t grow, we’ll make sure that your parks become a thing of the past.

Islam is dying in America because Americans are learning (finally) what Muslims are about, what their ‘faith’ is based upon, how they’re recruited, how they prey on the weak, their idea of ‘rights’ how they cannot ever respect our constitution because it’s in direct violation with Sharia and how they must abide by a set of laws called dualism, compelling them to lie to others.

It is becoming WELL KNOWN that ISLAM IS DYING IN AMERICA, despite what you might be hearing from CAIR and others – the more it dies, the more frantic they become and the more they put out press releases about how ‘fabulous’ things are, new mosques, etc…(except they are broke and hitting others up for funds)

STOP placating them – in addition, there is no such thing as a moderate muslim, regardless of what you’ve heard – from the mouth of the son of a well known Imam. Islam is as Islam does. And Regardless of what you might think, there is no such thing of a ‘mild’ muslim, even the ‘quiet’ ones who live on the street corner, drive the BMW and work in the dr’s office…they go to mosque, satisfy the pillars, pray, etc…and the money they are giving, that is funding terror.

it is funding terror – and by your silence, YOU are funding terror. YOU are funding terror.

STOP THE SILENCE. STOP THE NONSENCE. STOP THE MUSLIM DAY – THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS. THEY DO NOT ABIDE BY OUR CONSTITUTION – THEY ARE NOT ONE OF US – YOU ARE EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US – MAKE YOUR DECISION.

Annie, you are the reason I am defending Islam. That is why I as a Catholic American woman defends a religion that is not my own. Not because I want to convert, but because I fear that if we do not stand up, this time around it is Islam, next time around it is Christians, Buddhist, Jews, gays, (insert your group here) we are all in peril of losing those things we take for granted. It is whatever group that does not agree with the “Conservatives” the “Tea Party” and Fox News. It is a witch hunt, get ready, you are next on the list.
