Do you believe in Reincarnation? I do. The Dodo bird is EXTINCT. But lo and behold, it has reincarnated in human form.
The phrase “dead as a dodo” means undoubtedly and unquestionably dead, whilst the phrase “to go the way of the dodo” means to become extinct or obsolete, to fall out of common usage or practice, or to become a thing of the past.
This thread is my first and last post on the Dodo Bird, for it HAS indeed fallen out of common usage or practice. (YAWN)
If you don’t believe in reincarnation, one cool fact about it is that the returning Soul always returns in ascending life forms, for example, minerals, rocks, animals, humans. Another cool fact of reincarnation is that Soul gets to choose in which form it wants to return. Energy is neither created nor destroyed, only transformed.
Why chose to return at all, you might ask. Well Earth is just one great big school-house, and Soul has got a whole lot of lessons to learn, and it’s just not possible to learn them all in one lifetime.
If you’ve gotten this far in the thread, congratulations! You’re probably asking yourself, where the hell is she going with this?
Well since the Dodo bird has returned in the form of Maureen Dowd, I thought we’d take a peek at how evolved the bird has come since it’s reincarnation. Dowd has been on a complete tangent lately regarding President Barack Obama.
I will not post links to the previous drivel. If you’re interested, link up to the NYT Op Eds. But here’s a sampling which indicates that the Dodo bird remains FLIGHTLESS, and its attempts at staying alive and relevant in this lifetime are proving to be another MAJOR failure. Source here if you want too read the rest of this nonsense and do your own translations. LMAO
Going Mad in Herds
By MAUREEN DOWD
How can a man who has written two best-selling memoirs and been on TV so much that some Democrats worried he was overexposed be getting less known and more misunderstood by the day?
*TRANSLATION: Some White folks, including fellow Democrats still ain’t buying what you’re selling Black man. You’ve come in and messed with their game. We thought you was gonna be our Nigga!
The president who is always talking about wanting to be perfectly clear is ever more opaque. The One, who owes his presidency to the intense feeling he stirred up, turns out to be a practical guy who can’t deal with intense feeling.
*TRANSLATION: No matter how much you take your message on the road, we in the media can yell louder. You got some of us (* ** looking at you, Dodo Bird ***) all hot and bothered, all aroused and now you won’t pay any attention to me!
He ran as a man apart — Joe Biden was enlisted to folksy him up — and now he must deal with the fact that many see him as a man apart.
*TRANSLATION: Joe Biden was enlisted to whiten up the ticket and make white folks except the black man, but Barack Obama still remains Black and a swath of white folks still can’t DEAL!
“Too lofty to pay heed to the daily bump and grind of politics, Obama has failed to present himself as someone with the common touch. And to the extent that people don’t know him or don’t get him, he becomes easier to demonize. “
*TRANSLATION: Politics is sexy and gutter. Why aren’t you whoring around with other women?” I want to be your Michelle! Get common, Barack, touch me!!!
“Obama is the victim of the elevated expectations he so skillfully created in 2008.”
*TRANSLATION: “Obama isn’t kissing our asses and bending over to take it up the ass for all us white folks who voted for him!
In “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds,” a history of such national follies as England’s South Sea Bubble and Holland’s Tulip Frenzy, the Scottish historian Charles Mackay observed: “Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, one by one.”
*TRANSLATION: We in the media and newspaper industry know how the masses think, and will write and say whatever is necessary to get the masses or herds to buy into it.
“He also concluded that people are more prone to believe the “Wondrously False” than the “Wondrously True.”
TRANSLATION: “I too have my own delusions and illusion of being with you Obama, and I choose to believe that you really want me!”
Let me add this message for the Dodo Bird:
From a commenter: “The country is going mad because they are being lied to, by the far right commentators, by the republican congressional leadership and candidates, and by the large corporations who will peddle any kind of snake oil if they think it adds a dollar of profit.”
So you see Dodo Bird, you’re part of the crowd who feeds the maddening herd. Your hind feathers have yet to evolve, you remain flightless, and therefore your and the MSM’s message is being used just like the days of old to entertain, incite, irritate, divide and conquer.
You and the rest of your ilk can STOP pretending that you don’t know who is Barack Hussein Obama. He’s just not who y’all want him to be. He’s not your Mandingo, your slave, your boyfriend.
He’s the President of the United States of America. And yes, he has made mistakes. Your attempts at painting him a failure, only serves to paint you and the media as failures. Because you are NOT reporting from a balanced perspective, nor is this your intention to do so. Lies, drama, and half-truths sell papers and makes the few rich and keeps the masses all stirred up in a frenzy.
Getting back to the premise of reincarnation: Why keep returning to learn lessons? What lessons do we need to learn? Have no fear, if you don’t learn the lessons, karma will teach you.
The lessons of life remain the same. The real reason why we’re here and why we return is to learn how to LOVE(divinely).
Here are some words of wisdom for you, Maureen: Get a love of your own, Boo.
