Are you stupid?

I am a person of fact. I always verify my information. I do not believe someone when they tell me something, until I can find facts to prove it. I rather have someone tell me flat out what their opinion of me is, rather than pretend and just act like every thing is good. I can always tell when someone is lying because of their eye movement and theri behavior. I hope you all find what ever it takes for YOU to be in charge of your behavior. YOU have a voice. YOU count. Just listen to what your persona is telling in. Rest. Think. Meditate. GET SMART.

With this background, here are the 9 basic rating scales from the PBCAT that will allow you to detect when you’re being told a lie:

” Leaves out sensory details. A liar skips many of the little flourishes that embellish stories told by honest people. These are harder to keep straight later, so he or she just leaves them out. Someone telling the truth might mention what music was playing in the background or what color the flowers on the table were. A liar will try to be as incomplete as possible on details, including time, because these are difficult to construct and then keep consistent to in later renditions of the story.
Admits frequently to faulty memory. People telling the truth don’t have that much trouble remembering a true event, situation, or occurrence. They lived it, so it comes pretty easily to them. Liars, however, will give themselves the “excuse” of having a poor memory when, in reality, it’s only the lies they’re having trouble recalling.
Makes spontaneous corrections. Because liars have to backtrack so much, they will edit heavily their stories: “Her name was Lily, no it was Lisa, wait, maybe it was Linda.” You don’t have to keep an exact count of how many of these occur in a person’s speech, but if they happen often enough for you to notice, the individual is probably covering something up.
Keeps it short and vague. The longer, more complete, and spelled out a story is, the more likely it is to be true. Again, telling a lie or a string of lies takes more effort because it means that you have to create an entire scenario out of your head. Brevity may be “the soul of wit,” but it’s also the soul of a lie.
Doesn’t make sense and is full of contradictions. By now, if you’re catching on, it should be clear that a true story will hang together better than a string of lies. Returning to the case of the shirt, it’s quite likely that clothing from a more expensive store will look more expensive. If what you’re seeing doesn’t fit with what you know to be the case, it’s very likely that you’re not being told the truth.
Seems to be thinking hard. If your speaker seems to be unsure or, worse, to be putting a great deal of effort into coming up with a plausible account of events, this is a cue that the his or her cognitive load is mounting. Obviously people telling the truth may have difficulty remembering past events, but especially if an event wasn’t that long ago, and was of some significance, they should not seem to be sweating over every sentence they relate. If you ask your partner how his or her last relationship ended, that person should be reasonably sure. As time goes on, a partner who’s lied about that breakup will have to work even harder to keep the details consistent with other things you learn about that past relationship.
Is nervous, tense, and fidgety. It takes a great liar to be able to pull off a string of falsehoods without looking at least a little anxious. (In fact, that’s one of the cues to suggest that someone might be a psychopath.) Someone telling the truth will seem relaxed—maybe not happy, but at least not especially uncomfortable, assuming the story they’re telling isn’t a painful one.
Makes few complaints or negative comments. This seems counterintuitive, but it makes sense that someone trying to create a good impression would want to be positive. People high in the desire to impress others try to cover up their own negative reactions so you’ll like them (and believe them).
Talks unusually slowly. The speech of a truth-teller is reasonably normal, but people who are lying tend to take quite a bit longer as they self-edit, try to be consistent, and leave out negative commentaries. We hear about “fast-talking salespersons,” but rather than lying specifically, those characters may simply be trying to confuse you. Besides, a salesperson may be able to talk quickly when reciting a well-rehearsed lie, but a lying lover will probably proceed with greater caution in retelling fictional tales of his or her past.”

What the HE** just happened?

I guess this is a message to who ever is out there listening and reading about what is going on these days in this world of ours. It seems like we, the general public, are always allowing some of our strings to be moved if we consider we are just some kind of puppet in this society of ours. We seem to fall into the trap of just surrendering and just agreeing with what ever every one else is saying. Well, that bothers me. I was raised by 2 Italian parents who immigrated here, became citizens, and kept their Italian culture alive in their home and also kept the rules of the USA in their heads, and ours! My dad was always telling us to be proud to be AMERICANS, but do not forget where your parents were born. I listened. I went to college, working 2 jobs and paying for it MYSELF. I got a BA degree and then immediately starting working 2 jobs. I eventually got married and had 2 children. They both went to college and are also working 2 jobs. So, I feel very blessed. Our hard work and our prayers do count. You just have to keep focused on YOUR goals, not the other guys! YOU COUNT!

Weekend Funnies

Did you hear about the constipated accountant?

He couldn’t budget.


A little boy is walking down the country road one day when he comes across a man who has a truck load of cow manure.

The boy asks him what he’s going to do with all that cow poop.

The man says, “I’m taking it home to put on my strawberries.”

The little boy looks up at the man and says, “I don’t know where you come from, but where I come from we put cream and sugar on our strawberries.”


A man was sitting at a bar one day when a pirate walked in. The pirate had a wooden leg, a hook for one hand, and a patch over one eye.

Feeling sorry for the pirate, the man said, “Come over here, my friend. You look as though you’ve had a tough life and I’d like to buy you a drink.”

The pirate gladly went over to the man who ordered him a rum.

Then the man asked the pirate, “I’m curious, how did you lose your leg?”

“Arrrgh!” said the pirate, “I lost that timber to a tiger shark in the Caribbean when I was thrown overboard for stealing a man’s rum.”

“Wow, that’s awful!” said the man. “And tell me, how did you lose your hand?”

“Arrrgh!” replied the pirate, “I lost that fighting cannibals on a treasure island.”

“Oh my word!” the man said, “How awful! And tell me, how did you lose your eye?”

The pirate said, “Arrrgh! A seagull pooped in it!”

“A seagull!” The man was surprised. He asked, “Is seagull poop dangerous?!”

The pirate said, “Nay, matey, it was me first day with the hook.”


People say love is the best feeling ever.

But I think finding a toilet when you’re having diarrhea is better.


I went into a public toilet for a poop the other day. I’d just sat down when I heard a voice from the next cubicle say, “Hi, how are you?”

I was a little embarrassed but I replied, “I’m fine thanks.”

Then the voice asked, “So what are you up to?”

I replied, “Just doing the same as you, sitting here.”

Then the voice asked, “Can I come over?”

Annoyed, I said, “Actually, I’m a little busy right now.”

The voice then said, “Listen, I’ll have to call you back, there’s an idiot next door who keeps answering all my questions.”


If you do not recognize what is going on, what can I say?
If you do not see the wrong that is shining, what can I do?

If you continue to live in your own little world, what of others?

If you fail to see the BIG agenda, what can be done?

Listen and learn ON YOUR OWN.

Do not always fall prey to the gossip.

Do not alwats surrender in weakness.

Hold strong to the facts.

You have an opinion that counts.

Words I looked up and would like to share

You can formulate your own opinion as to why I posted these definitions. Have a great weekend!


firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.


the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.
“we had every confidence in the staff”
synonyms: trust, belief, faith, credence, conviction

the state of feeling certain about the truth of something.

a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.


behavior that shows a lack of good sense or judgment.

a person who has lied or lies repeatedly

Simple Definition of common sense

: the ability to think and behave in a reasonable way and to make good decisions

When you finally do make a decision, you may not be confident about it, or you might change your mind. Another definition for indecisive
is not definitely settling something, like when election results are too close to call or some result has been called into question

A statement of FACT can be proved TRUE or FALSE. A statement of OPINION is what someone believes or thinks. There may or may not be a good reason to think this way. Words that give you clues that a statement is an opinion are believe, like, and should.

There comes a point and time in our lives where we are not really sure exactly what the hell we believe in. I hope that you have all found a place in your life where you can say you have achieved some type of peace with things. We all need to find that balance in our lives where we can actually not get annoyed when we look at ourselves in the mirror. I can honestly say that I have reached that blessing in my life. I have fought hard and strong. I have stayed focused. I have stayed true. I have not injured anyone along the way. I can say that I am at peace and can accept any challenge., Can you?
