This page is under construction but I will devote my entire time adding what I consider to be Jedi Mind Tricks that keep American citizens in the dark. For instance, did anyone ever ask the question why our Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, was able to pay only 15% in taxes while making millions, instead of getting angry about the information? I say that Mr. Romney knew something that most Americans don’t know and he makes use of that knowledge very well.
I define a Jedi Mind Trick as truth that you don’t see or can’t see, even though it is right in front of your face, like a very good magical trick. You see it, you saw it, it’s still hard to believe what you saw even after you saw what you saw! So it is dismissed and we all go about living life as we knew life just 10 minutes before the WOW factor.
I consider taxes a JMT because most Americans, believe it or not, are not aware of how the structure of taxes are set up on a yearly basis. This is why if you ask your average friend what was his or her tax liability for the previous year, mostly all of them will tell you they did not pay any taxes, in fact, they received a refund! PROOF that they did not pay any taxes, when this couldn’t be further from the truth! So I ask you, what was your tax liability last year? If you know the answer, you are not fooled by the Jedi Mind Trick! You will be able to make plans and strategize for the coming year. If you could not answer that question, you are more than likely a prime suspect for the use of JMT on a large human scale.
When I was growing up, America didn’t teach me things like, the benefits of owning a business and tax brackets and FICA. These were things I sort of picked up along the way. I am sure that this might sound strange to the young people of America but there is no doubt in my mind that there are plenty of young people in America that haven’t a clue about this country. I say this because I see more and more young people with no direction, no visions, no dreams, no education. How easy it will be for them to revert to crime, because only the strong will survive. So what was the Jedi Mind Trick played on these young kids? I must assume that one was, no accountability. When people do not have to be responsible for what they say and how they treat others, there’s a no accountability factor that sets in and take up residency within the individual. Now all one has to do is blame the other one for whatever failure might be going on in their lives. How do we correct this? By unveiling the Jedi Mind Trick (no accountability), by correcting the thought process (be accountable for what you say and what you do) and then by changing course to better ground, better ideas, better pay, better education, etc.
I will continue this discussion because I think it is important to unveil as many Jedi Mind Tricks as possible. Here’s one for you to think about. The 30 year mortgage. This is a serious Jedi Mind Trick because people love the fact that they can deduct a part of their interest. I stayed in a house for almost 30 years! I know it is a JMT! What are some of your Jedi Mind Tricks?
