Reblogged on The Theory of 3 Personality Types and commented: It took a number if officers to arrest this gentleman for no reason. While he continually asked why he was being arrested he couldn’t get a single answer. What cowards and what a waste of taxpayers money. No doubt they were needed elsewhere instead of harassing someone for apparently no reason.

“In war, the first casualty is the truth.”

Where were you on the morning of September 11, 2001 when you heard The News?
I was finishing breakfast and listening to Peter Boyles on KHOW 630 in Denver. I vividly remember him interrupting the conversation and saying something like “We have just received word that an airplane has crashed into one of the World Trade Center towers in New York.”
I turned on the TV set and saw a massive cloud of black smoke emanating from near the top of the first tower. And then – WHAM! – the second tower was hit. I couldn’t pull myself away…

Breed Specific Legislation is happening all across the country. Targeted dogs included American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, “or a dog that is a mix of the two breeds.” (http://stopbsl.org/)
Please share this link http://julieborowski.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/first-they-came-for-the-pit-bulls/ to raise awareness to stop BSL.
My favorite thing in the entire world is dogs. That’s why I deeply care about stopping Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). BSL restricts or bans certain types or breeds of dogs, most often pit bulls. I’ve been following the issue for quite a while but I haven’t seen it talked about within libertarian circles. So, I decided to make a video to hopefully spread awareness.
(Here’s a link to adopt Leah– the girl at the end of video: http://www.bullypaws.org/animals/detail?AnimalID=6109859)
I was thrilled to see comments from people who were not previously aware of BSL. It’s a liberty issue and a great way to reach animal lovers. There is already an active community against BSL. These people don’t like the government telling them what kind of dog they can or cannot have.
The argument against BSL is very similar to the argument against gun control. Pit bulls are the AR-15s of…

Is Obama the problem or the sympton?
A truly enlightening (as always) look at how the American public holds the key for change.

Please don’t feel sorry for me, but Obamacare has wrecked my business. Not entirely, mind you. I am still licensed to sell medical insurance, and I will keep that license and service my current clients. However, there is very little financial incentive for me to actively solicit new business in 2014.
I am on to better things, though. I have come across two very exciting opportunities elsewhere in the insurance industry and am actively pursuing them. (I wish I had found them sooner.) I can provide pretty much any form of insurance except disability and bail bonds.
It is so easy to sit on Facebook…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
OK folks… the 4th of July has come to an end. The fireworks have quieted down. Well maybe. I’m sure some of you are still being annoyed by the guys down the street who decided that one night wasn’t enough.
Anyway, here are a few things you may have noticed:
-Eating and drinking to excess
-Outdoor sports activities including chasing frisbees, being dragged behind a boat
-The use of explosive devices that were it December instead of July, a visit from Homeland Security would be the immediate result
-Atomic grills being lit
Yes? You did? What? You were scared??!! Oh come on…
They were scotts! Nothing to worry about there (as long as you weren’t standing too close to the grill or launch area). You see, the 4th of July is one of the most celebrated holidays by scotts. You know, those wacky, fun-loving ones who never slow down. The ones you can’t not notice. No sparklers for these guys. Hell no. Rocket launchers, Roman Candles… the bigger the better. These would be in the arsenal of scotts on the 4th of July. Oh yeah, ground spinners too. They just love to watch other people trying to run away from them and have been known to create a contest complete with boundaries. Run out-of-bounds and you lose. So who are the last ones running in-bounds? SCOTTS!!!!
So there you have it. The scotts on the 4th of July. They’re sound asleep now after a non-stop action-packed 24 hours. But not for long…
“You need to accept that other people see the world differently from you. When you accept that, you will be ready to see it ‘through their eyes’ and get your message across more effectively.”*
Sounds like it came straight from the Wakefield Doctrine. In fact, the Doctrine is predicated on perception. The perception of three different personality types and how they each view the world in one of three distinct and characteristic ways. Once you have grasped these three different views of reality (piece of cake… check out this, this and this) not only will you be able to see the world through their eyes, but even be able to predict their behavior in any given situation.
This lends itself exceptionally well when it comes to persuading others to get the result that you want from them for your benefit. Sounds selfish and underminding. I know. But let’s see a raise of hands of who would relish the ability to do this. That’s what I thought. Whether it be negotiating a business contract, trying to establish a repertoire with someone or positively influencing a relationship I’d be willing to bet that you will get your way 99.9% of the time. Seriously! Here’s the deal:
1. Look at the situation through your eyes. This would be normal for you.
2. Look at the situation through their eyes. Imagine you are the other person to see and feel as they would about themselves. Look at yourself as the other person would see you.
3. Listen to yourself and the other person talking to one another.
Simply put, with the understanding of the three types, you have a lot more information about the other person’s perspective just from understanding their perception of any situation. This, in turn, gives you the most effective way to get what you want from the other person without them even being aware of the fact that you know more about them than they know themselves. Powerful stuff. The Doctrine will enable you to positively influence your relationships with others. And in doing so, you will be able to use this influence to your advantage. It is important to note that the intention of having this understanding of others is not meant to be used in a derogatory manner. So go try it. Have fun with it. I guarantee that in no time you’ll be saying to yourself “Wow! This is great! Now I can finally understand why people behave the way they do. I could’ve really used this a long time ago.” Well now you have it and now you can.

Where to start? How would a scott answer that question without hesitation or reservation? OK then. No need to elaborate…
Alright then, moving right along. Bright squeaky balloons that are alive are a source of fun for a scott. But when they die, we (yes, I’m a scott) are sad for a moment (make that a fraction of a second). “Hey look!! There’s a shiny red ball!” And just like that we’ve forgotten about the dead balloon. It’s on to the next and the next….
- You know those captions in cartoon pictures? Live balloons.
- Men watching hot chicks on T.V.? Expanding balloons.
- And we all know this one: “went over like a lead balloon”
- How about those animal balloons that clowns make? A lot of children are afraid of clowns. And, admit it, some of you reading this are still freaked out by clowns. What if a clown sent you a balloon of a dead man? Of course they can do it! They make animals. Why not make serial killer death balloon threats?
- Hot air balloons? You never want to be in one when it starts to deflate.
- Ever take acid? I did once when I was in college (oh lift your jaw back up already) and everyone I saw had a balloon-shaped head. AND my fingers looked like balloons. I kid you not. What a trip that was!! Kind of reminds me of the lyrics to Comfortably Numb* (Pink Floyd) “…my hands felt just like two balloons…” Talk about psychedelic. All of you stoners remember.
Just a few of my takes on balloons. Now tell me that they aren’t a blast!!
*this song sounds even better now not being under the influence of anything mind-altering. David Gilmore is a genious.
See? It doesn’t have anything to do with personality types. But it’s a hell of a lot of fun. Plus, you can be part of it! Here’s the low-down. Over at the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) there is a Post Writing Contest going on. The only requirement is that the title must contain the phrase “a dead balloon is a dead balloon.” Yes, you read that correctly. Other than that anything goes. For details visit the link above. Send me your entry by this Friday the 13th (yes, I know) and it will be entered in the contest. Not only that, but your Post will be linked back to your site!
