Problem: Gut!

It’s undeniable that intuition plays a big role in decision making. Subconscious mental processes that bubble up in the mind as emotion creates awareness of a feeling. That feeling plays a part in decision making. How important is it? “It” depends upon the action to be taken. “It” depends upon the awareness of context in which the “It” is surrounded (including the “It” of the “Id”). The problem is results (or facts) are often counter-intuitive. Example: not looking both ways before you cross the street! The problem with going with the gut is reality is often COUNTER INTUITIVE. Example: The car came from the direct you did not see. Clearly, the correct path was counter-intuitive. Life, money and more time wasted could have been saved by taking a moment to look both ways, before crossing a street.

It Is

Khashoggi: It’s not even a question of who ordered him murdered, granted the permission to utilize resources and assets, or even what happened to body parts (because they flew out of Turkey and over open waters) on the return trip. Do you think any ordinary Saudi could cook up the scheme?

The real question, in my mind, is “Why?” More specifically, “What did Khashoggi know that was such a threat to the House of Saud, that the Crown Prince and his ilk resorted to such subterfuge in assassination?”

Last night, a Negro came to me in a dream:

Uncle Tom, I may be. Uncle Tom, you call me, despite kneeling on knee. But, you know the White man did and always will sell his mama for a dollar. I guess his hope is in the saying, ‘now more of my friends won’t see squalor.’ White man saying one should die for the greater good, particularly in my greater neighborhood.  The place where love, morality and truth once stood.

Not to worry, there’s no debate: It is what it is, that was his fate!

I’m Just Sayin ….

When Cubans risked their lives, fleeing Castro’s take over, before and after he did so, were the beaches of Florida and U.S. territorial waters ever barbed-wired, militarized and absolutely blockaded to fleeing migrants?

When a person is evidently irrational to the  a reasonable law enforcement officer who suspects access to a weapon of mass destruction could result in harm to that person or the public,  should not removal of access to the weapon of mass destruction should be the law?

So, N.R.A., there were those who did have guns last night at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. Did that mitigate the carnage?

Why can’t politicians get real?* Why can’t the N.R.A. and say what’s right and true? What say ye, Justice Kavanaugh?
