The Value of Common Sense

How to define common sense can be somewhat of a mystery. It varies with the individual attempting the definition and that leads to as many disparate opinions as there are people 'inclined to define.' 

Common sense is defined by Merriam-Webster as, "sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts."Thus, "common sense" (in this view) equates to the knowledge and experience which most people already have, or which the person using the term believes that they do or should have. The Cambridge Dictionary defines it as, "the basic level of practical knowledge and judgment that we all need to help us live in a reasonable and safe way."

"Living in a reasonable and safe way" is good for starters. Being safe could mean that we don't fall prey to those who would do us harm, those who would take from us what little we have-physically, mentally and even spiritually, and that we don't become what we intrinsically have a revulsion to. 

Common sense depends a lot on trust. Trust in ourselves, trust in others and the ability to see through deceptions. It's not an easy task. 

To see Clinton on a podium marked 'the value of common sense' is an affront to our sensibilities. To hear most politicians or those in the controlled media speak their brand of common sense reveals an agenda that only money can buy. To feel the effects of the so called elite's so called common sense is to feel pain. 

Maintaining the pain for many for the profit of a few is but one example...

As individuals we can have all the common sense in the world but without action it is of little use. The elite see their version of common sense as a tool for control and as long as we remain paralyzed our lack of action seems to prove to them that they deserve to dictate our destiny.

Collectively we do have the common sense to overcome the mass manipulations that ail us. Perhaps the first step is to reject the divide and conquer techniques that envelop us? After that it's just one small common sense step at a time.


  1. What a cold son of a bitch. Marijuana helps me as well. I have to risk my ass on the streets and spend more than I should on pot just to ease some pain. Alcohol is poison but its legal. Big Pharma has so many pills that are as bad as heroin that I could easily get but I refuse. Legalize pot now. Its the only humane thing to do.

    1. Yes, yes and yes!

      Sometimes even the elite come around. Former Vanderbilt University first lady Constance Gee tells her story of marijuana use and her call now for legalization.

      “Higher Education: Marijuana at the Mansion”

      A lite ridicule of those who make up the rules.

    2. I sure hope so kenny. It helps me in numerous ways that other miedications just cant. With very little negative side effects. So I eat a little more. Big deal.


    4. "Can You Smell It? Marijuana Legalization Coming In 2012

      2012 Election Is The Most Important In Marijuana Law Reform History"

      "How Will The Feds React If Colorado Passes Marijuana Legalization Measure Amendment 64?"

      "One Month Before the Election, Colorado Marijuana Legalization Still Up Ten Points"

      The Colorado vote is not complete legalization but regulation. We don't regulate tomato plants, neither should we regulate marijuana and hemp.


    6. I have seen a few election adds for a referendum on the legalization esp of medical marijuana here in the Pacific Northwest. It is long over due... like never should have been due!

      Bill Hicks and the best marijuana rant ever:

      Yanno we need to ask Rubme/Robme the important questions! Does he wear boxers or briefs? Or is he in Mormon undies?

      Now THOSE are the things inquiring minds are asking.

      Silliness aside, what a friggin robot! A Mormon robotic ex Bishop. Dangerous critter. Believe me, him together with Stephen Harper are the NAFTA leaders from hell.

  2. Is "The Matrix" real? Some real down the rabbit hole shit here, fun to read and think about if nothing else:

  3. One person's 'common sense' viewpoint. A Sunday hippie sermon.


    1. Gosh he does bring the hippie days full circle doesn't he? I liked the part about the seeds that we planted. Reminds me of the parable of the mustard seeds only more relevant to our current situation.

    2. Yep, many of the ideas from those days are still relevant.

  4. Meet the Clintons...

    "Shameless liars. Committed globalists. Inveterate womanizers. Unrepentant drug runners. Unconvicted money launderers. Fake humanitarians. And two of the most popular politicians in America."

  5. MoMA has not returned any such artwork since 2001, when it says it started looking into various claims that pieces in its collection for works that might have been stolen from victims of Nazi terror.....REALLY !!!

    It had signed a deal saying it would seek a “just and fair solution” for disputed art, but advocates say it has fought Jewish claims to pieces in court. Other top museums have also resisted claims by former Jewish art owners, perhaps out of fear of opening a deluge of new you gotta axe yoself...seriously

    As he fled for his life with his family, Simon, a top collector, consigned ‘The Scream’ to a Swiss gallery. It’s not known if he was compensated and the artwork wound up in the hands of a Norweigian family.

    Simon and his family escaped to Paris and eventually to Brazil, where he died in 1950.,7340,L-4292178,00.html

    Despite the murky history, Cardoso believes it is self-evident that the looming Holohoax prevented Simon from the painting...of the future of the braindeadgoy.

    It is my purpose on behalf of the Jewnited Snakes to commemorate this magnificent museum, meeting as we do among memorials within the site of the memorial to Thomas Jefferson, the author of our so-called freedom to worship the "Jewish" narrative.

    Near where Abraham Lincoln is seated, who gave his life so that our nation might extend its mandate of freedom to worship the 'Jewish" narrative to all who live within our BOLSHEVIK contrived "borders".... We gather near the place where the legendary and recently departed Marian Anderson sang songs of freedom, and where Martin Luther King summoned us all to dream and work enable "Jewish" perfidy...and unbelievable HIGH POCK KRISSY...!!

    one small common sense step at a time...

  6. Kenny "Collectively we do have the common sense to overcome the mass manipulations that ail us. Perhaps the first step is to reject the divide and conquer techniques that envelop us? After that it's just one small common sense step at a time."

    I agree and yet why do we not?
    Even in your own comment section Kenny
    What is the point of it all?
    In my comment section?
    We don't have to agree with the minutiae
    But we all know we are humans, we all know we belong to the human race and most of us should know we are being preyed on by psychopathic elites who have slithered to the top, Mr & Mrs Clinton being perfect examples of how scum rises to the top
    It does so because the scum is supported by what it floats on. The masses.
    Stop supporting the scum. Pull the plug.
    It is that simple, that is really all there is to it.
    Elections are illegitimate, don't participate
    Cancel your cable, your satellite, your cellphone
    Use your money to influence the outcome you want. Support the businesses that will support you. Local farmers etc
    Skip the newspapers
    So many little things that if we did them collectively could alter the reality that is shoved down our throat

    etc etc rant over

    1. Love the rants. Yes, we should focus on what we can do as individuals and hope it adds up.

      For those who do watch some TV I'll add..."Don't buy anything they advertise." That's an easy one.

      One of the current issues is GMOs. Although I've been doing it for a good while, I'm trying to increase my own awareness and not buy anything containing them by reading every label and looking for alternatives. Hit 'em where it hurts.

    2. Hi Kenny,

      Have you noticed that if you want to read the labels, you have to bring 20-30x magnifying glass at the stores? That happened to me at the Target. Since it was Target, borrowing a magnifying glass wasn't a big deal. Can you imagine doing that at grocery stores?

      All the Campbell soups come loaded with MSG, except for cream of broccoli. I wanted to make sure that they didn't switch around the recipe behind my back.

    3. Actually I've been carrying around a cheap little jeweler's loop for years. It comes in handy for the small stuff.

  7. A new video "Romney Exposed" explores his drug trafficking connections and more.

  8. Here is the truth about Hillary and Benghazi September 11, 2012:

    "by blaming the Stevens murder on a video instead of Al Qaeda terrorists, she and the president deliberately deceived the American people and the world.
    Hillary paraded this falsehood in two very public speeches on September 12th after the attack, and again on the 14th–even though the word was out within 24 hours that the killings in Libya were the result of a terrorist attack.
    Her own State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research dubbed the murders acts of terror from the start, and never considered the online video a factor. 'That was never our conclusion,' officials now say.
    It was not until September 21st–more than a week after the truth was known–that Hillary abruptly changed her story to 'what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.' By then the video story was so transparently false that when she trotted it out one last time at a Congressional briefing on September 20, the reaction was one of disbelief and disgust. 'They’re trying to cover their behinds,' Congressman Ted Flores of Texas seethed, and he was right."

    Imagine the truth about New York and Washington September 11, 2001:

    "by blaming the murderous attacks on a CIA/Mossad created Al Qaeda terrorists, Bush and Cheney deliberately deceived the American people and the world.
    Bush paraded this falsehood in uncountable public speeches directly after the attack, and again for years – even though the word was out within 6 years that the killings on the East Coast were the result of a CIA/Mossad false flag/inside job.
    The Government's own truthful critics have identified the attacks as an act of terror on its own people for years now, and do not believe the Muslims or Osama bin Laden were a factor. 'That is not our conclusion,' honest citizens now say.
    It is now long after September 11, 2001 – several years after the truth has been known – that Bush and Cheney still haven't changed their story from 'what happened in New York and Washington was a Muslim terrorist attack.' By now the video story is known to be so transparently false, that when they trot it out again and again at a every opportunity, the reaction is one of disbelief and disgust. 'They’re trying to cover their behinds,' Congressman Ron Paul has seethed, and he was right."

  9. few memories of clinton time:
    terrorist warnings almost weekly.
    monthly quality-job lossses - 50,000 to 100,000
    (not sure how he got his surplus. maybe stole from the entitlements)
    photos with the poor. last time any would see him.
    bringing jews into govt in enormous numbers. the first jewish pres. not obama.

  10. Can Marijuana-based drugs make you smarter?
    I can't vouch for the veracity of these claims but I am HIGHLY interested - thought you may be as well

  11. Here is an interesting point of view on an aspect of mythology and religion:

    The Entheogen Theory of Religion and Ego Death
    by Michael Hoffman


    The main origin and ongoing wellspring of religion is the use of visionary plants. These plants include Psilocybe mushrooms, Henbane, Cannabis, Opium, Peyote, Salvia divinorum, and Amanita mushrooms.

    Visionary plants have been commonly used around the world throughout the history of religion and culture (Hofmann, Schultes, & Ratsch 1992), including in the various forms of Western Esotericism (Heinrich 1994). Greek and Christian mythic-religious systems often refer to visionary plants (Ruck, Staples, & Heinrich 2001). Leading mystics throughout the history of various religions have used visionary-plant sessions on-demand, with mystic-state experiencing that was largely rationality-oriented (Merkur 2001).

    Meditation, shamanic drumming, and liturgical ritual were developed as activities to do in the plant-induced dissociative state, not as methods of inducing the dissociative state in the first place.

    Wasson and Allegro on the Tree of Knowledge as Amanita
    by Michael Hoffman


    The entheogen theory of religion asserts that the main source of religion by far is visionary plants, including Psilocybin mushrooms, Peyote, Ayahuasca combinations, Cannabis, Opium, Henbane, Datura, Mandrake, Belladonna, ergot, Amanita mushrooms, and combinations of these. Religious myths are, above all, metaphorical descriptions of the cognitive phenomenology accessed with a high degree of efficacy through these plants.

    Religious myths are descriptions of visionary plants and the experiences they produce. Visionary plants are incomparably more efficacious and ergonomic than meditation; they are historically the source and model for meditation, and meditation was developed as an activity to do in the midst of an entheogen-induced mystic cognitive state. There is abundant and plentiful evidence, in various forms, for the entheogen theory of each of the major religions, including Jewish religion and Christianity.

    I do not necessarily agree with everything stated on any site that I link to. No one is always correct in every particular, and no one can possibly be knowledgeable about every element of something as complex as myth and religion, in which there are kernels of truth and layers of deception, the esoteric and the exoteric, allegories and insight into the depths of the human condition, as well as astronomical and astrological elements. Only by keeping an open mind and comparing the insights of various writers can we begin to understand the scope, influence and importance of myth in our daily lives.
