Being a Critical Thinker

Here is an e-mail from my Friend and Mentor, Michael Dlouhy.

August 03 2008

Hello Critical Thinkers,

Michael Dlouhy here with Mentoring For
Free with a "Thought" about how Critical
Thinking works in Your Life, or NOT.....

Mentoring For Free Teaches You HOW
to Think NOT WHAT To Think...correct ?

This story from Jay Leno ( Not Verified)
is a perfect Example of HOW the media
is Brainwashing people on "WHAT" to

I did a coaching call the other day with a
brilliant lady that told me that "Everyone"
was doing "Cash Gifting", my response
to her was >>"That's a LIE"<<..........

The Cash Gifting people said it, so she is
Repeating it just like CNN does without
ever "THINKING" Through the Process.

EVERYONE is A BIG Number,and people
just puke this nonsense on anyone that will
Listen and give their Puke Power.

I told her that I did NOT know ONE person
personally that was in Cash Gifting, She did
NOT have any Proof other than Repeating
what some web-site "Told Her To Think"

There is a 20 year old Network Marketing
that is saying they had 60% growth last
month and any "Critical Thinker" knows
that this is Mathematically Impossible.

They Don't have to prove it, all they need to
do is say it then get everyone to repeat it.

The article below is NOT about Your belief
or Disbelief it's about how people "Believe"
what they are told without the first thought
of "Critical Thinking" coming from them..

Please DO NOT send me Your Political
views because that is NOT what this is
article is about.........

You can sharpen Your Thinking Skills when
You Stop The Chatter In Your OWN Mind,

Jay Leno on President Bush (Surprising)

Jay Leno on President Bush (Surprising)
Jay Leno wrote this; it's the Jay Leno we
don't often see....

As most of you know I am not a President
Bush fan, nor have I ever been, but this is
not about Bush, it is about us, as Americans,
and it seems to hit the mark.

The other day I was reading Newsweek
magazine and came across some Poll
data I found rather hard to believe.It must
be true given the source, right?

The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent
of Americans are unhappy with the direction
the country is headed and 69 percent of the
country is unhappy with the performance of
the President.

In essence 2/3 of the citizenry just ain't
happy and want a change. So being the
knuck le dragger I am, I started thinking, '
What are we so unhappy about?''

A.. Is it that we have electricity and running
water 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week?

B.. Is our unhappiness the result of having
air conditioning in the summer and heating
in the winter?

C.. Could it be that 95.4 percent of these
unhappy folks have a job?

D. Maybe it is the ability to walk into a
grocery store at any time and see more
food in moments than Darfur has seen
in the last year?

E.. Maybe it is the ability to drive our cars
and trucks from the Pacific Ocean to the
Atlantic Ocean without having to present
identification papers as we move through
each state?

F.. Or possibly the hundreds of clean and
safe motels we would find along the way
that can provide temporary shelter?

G.. I guess having thousands of restaurants
with varying cuisine from around the world
is just not good enough either.

H. Or could it be that when we wreck our
car, emergency workers show up and
provide services to help all and even send
a helicopter to take you to the hospital.

I.. Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent
of Americans who own a home.

J.. You may be upset with knowing that in
the unfortunate case of a fire, a group of
trained firefighters will appear in moments
and use top notch equipment to extinguish
the flames, thus saving you, your family,
and your belongings.

K.. Or if, while at home watching one of
your many flat screen TVs, a burglar or
prowler intrudes, an officer equipped with
a gun and a bullet-proof vest will come to
defend you and your family against
attack or loss.

L.. This all in the backdrop of a neighbor
hood free of bombs or militias raping and
pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods
where 90% of teenagers own cell phones
and computers.

M.. How about the complete religious,
social and political freedoms we enjoy
that are the envy of everyone in the world?
Maybe that is what has 67% of you folks

Fact is, we are the largest group of un--
grateful, spoiled brats the world has ever
seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S. ,
yet has a great disdain for its citizens.

They see us for what we are. The most
blessed people in the world who do nothing
but complain about what we don't have, and
what we hate about the country instead of
thanking the good Lord we live here.I know,
I know.

What about the president who took us
into war and has no plan to get us out?

The president who has a measly 31 percent
approval rating? Is this the same president
who guided the nation in the dark days after
9/11? The president that cut taxes to bring
an economy out of recession?

Could this be the same guy who has been
called every name in the book for succeeding
in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful brats
safe from terrorist attacks?

The commander in chief of an all-volunteer
army that is out there defending you and
me? Did you hear how bad the President
is on the news or talk show?

Did this news affect you so much, make
you so unhappy you couldn't take a look
around for yourself and see all the good
things and be glad?

Think about it............are you upset at the
President because he actually caused you
personal pain OR is it because the 'Media'
told you he was failing to kiss your sorry
ungrateful behind every day.

Make no mistake about it. It's time you
realize the President doesn't do one thing
without Congressional approval. So don't
blame the President blame your
congressman or woman..

The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have
volunteered to serve, and in many cases
may have died for your freedom. There
is currently no draft in this country. T
hey didn't have to go. They are able to
refuse to go and end up with either a ''
general'' discharge, an 'other than
honorable'' discharge or, worst case
scenario, a ''dishonorable'' discharge
after a few days in the brig. so why
then the flat-out discontentment in
the minds of 69 percent of Americans?

Say what you want but I blame it on the
media. If it bleeds it leads and they
specialize in bad news. Everybody will
watch a car crash with blood and guts.

How many will watch kids selling lemon
ade at the corner? The media knows this
and media outlets are for-profit corporations.

They offer what sells, and when criticized,
try to defend their actions by 'justifying'
them in one way or another. Just ask why
they tried to allow a murderer like O.J.
Simpson to write a book about how he
didn't kill his wife, but if he did he would
have done it this way......Insane!

Turn off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use
the New York Times for the bottom of your
bird cage. Then start being grateful for all
we have as country. There is exponentially
more good than bad. We are among the
most blessed people on Earth and should
thank God several times a day, or at least
be thankful and appreciative.' '

With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of
control, mud slides, flooding, severe
thunderstorms tearing up the country
from one end to another, and with the
threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks,
'Are we sure this is a good time to take
God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?'

Jay Leno

Please keep this in circulation. There
are so many people who need to read
this and grasp the truth of it.
