Last week, Carl Grimes-Purrkins (Dweeze) and I got into a super important debate on GT about whether or not lizard people run the government. The debate got quite heated but still remained mostly civil in the spirit of GT.
I still believe our biggest threat is Free Masons working with the Illuminatti in conjunction with space cats,
and of course, this guy.
I have, however, reconsidered my position on lizard people.
Over the weekend, I got a lovely if depressing conversation with Una Bear Dog and Perry Downing regarding the recent reduction in SNAP benefits. This particular comment by Una Bear Dog about the Tea Party got me thinking about what is often referred to as our lizard or reptilian brain:
The left tends to be better educated and more comfortable with nuance & ambiguity. The right is more prone to black & white thing, unable to deal with ambiguity, and also more driven by the fear centers of the brain.
They be angry & afraid
Much has been written about the lizard brain. In Linchpin: Are You Indispensable, Seth Godin states:
The lizard brain is hungry, scared, angry, and horny.
The lizard brain only wants to eat and be safe.
The lizard brain will fight (to the death) if it has to, but would rather run away. It likes a vendetta and has no trouble getting angry.
The lizard brain cares what everyone else thinks, because status in the tribe is essential to its survival.
The lizard brain is the reason you're afraid, the reason you don't do all the art you can, the reason you don't ship when you can. The lizard brain is the source of the resistance.
This is the exactly the type of fear driven brain Una Bear Dog attributed to right wing tea partiers.
So after much deep thinking (aka a good nap), I have come to the conclusion that the lizard people Dweeze was referring to are these assholes.
Holy fuck!!! There are just too many to post pictures of them all!!! And while they don't yet run our government, they are certainly trying to do so.
