When it comes to jumping the gun, American prosecutors are apparently well practiced. In the case of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, this may turn out to be a case of itchy trigger fingers.
Lets face the facts, each and every one of us has had less than wholesome thoughts from time to time. After all we are only human. Having such thoughts is by no means against any law in any country.
Sometimes we let our imagination get the best of us and we see things that do not exist. Sometimes it comes from stereotypical beliefs such as all ‘x’ are something. A case in point in Texas the state removed hoards of children from their parents citing a variety of charges based on religious beliefs that the children were in danger.
Connecting the Dots has written at least 2 posts on this. One was called Modern day Witch hunts As that is the most direct example.
So getting back to the case of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, It is starting to look like all Rod had thus far was some less than wholesome thoughts when it came down to assigning the Senate seat vacated by president elect Obama. No money has been exchanged, and most of all the seat as not been assigned. So that leaves the prosecutors with a dilemma. They have arrested Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich for having less than wholesome thoughts. One gets the sense this is tied to political correctness running amuck. However Rod is a politician and so perhaps it applies.
At the most there may be some tainted thoughts that Rod is not wholesome pure and perfect. And that can lead to his downfall. After all politicians must be as close to Godlike as possible. That is what political correctness demands of politicians. That is why impeachment proceedings are being launched.
So now each reader is sizing up what was said, and your opinion will be based on your personal beliefs and hidden preadjusts. Some may side with Rod, and others will condemn him for having less than wholesome thoughts. Still others may be angry at Connecting the Dots for somehow involving you in this debacle of morals and ethics.
Actually all we wanted to do was make you think about how this is all tied to many things we write about being sheep mentality, witch hunts, political correctness and so on. We want you to take a moment and reflect on yourself as to where you have been, where you are, and where you are going before judging Rod or others. When you can do that, you will have taken the first step in making accurate predictions as we work at doing.
Confused yet? Well don’t worry. We just wanted to take the moment to open a few eyes as to how society operates and how the pain and pleasures of life surround us. It would seem we are all part of a huge lab experiment that offers pain for wrong thoughts, and pleasure for right thoughts. The question is who decides what is what, and what will happen to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
