David “Mitch” Sotelo: Thoughts Dumb Enough to Print
I don’t know if it’s better to know answers in a world unable to hear them, or to be ignorant and surprised like everyone else.
It’s rather nice to just fit in, but when you know nothing is fitting and everyone is standing around smiling like heaven has come to earth, you really want to run away from all of them, screaming, but if you do, you’ll look like the craziest one of the group. Suffer.
Two kinds of people say that humanity is crazy, the ones saner than society, and the ones crazier than society.
Ignorance might be bliss, but you can’t fake it, and you have to watch when the ignorant become surprised by reality.
Those that talk about the ignorance of others have forgotten all their own ignorant ideas they were too dumb to know about in the first place.
Saying something is crazy is just an admission that you are too crazy yourself to understand it.
You don’t know what famous people of the past really said, and you don’t want to remember what politicians have said just yesterday.
Thinking about the craziness in other’s faces I looked in the mirror and saw a frightened face I would have avoided on the street.
When I think I understand things I get nervous. Should I trust a proven fool?
Republicans today don’t hate black folk, they just don’t want one of them to be president and make them look stupid.
Copyrighting your words on today’s internet is like placing your expensive watch on a park bench with a sign that says “you can’t legally steal this”.
When you can’t sell yourself, hide behind something else that people will buy, and when they do, take credit, just like famous politicians.
When you’re looking in someone’s closet for skeletons, make sure the ones you find weren’t borrowed from your own.
When a good comedian tells a joke, it can be missed, because it will sound so much like the truth.
When a politician has a follower praise them, look around to see who paid who.
When a big business executive says he isn’t a politician, stand back in case lightning strikes.
When joking around makes you feel depressed, check to see if you haven’t added too many facts.
When we criticize politicians in the glaring light of the media, we have to realize that such light can make them appear as blind as they are.
Be kind to politicians, they work hard. They have to convince you that they can change the world without you’re having to change, and do that with thousands and still look honest.
Decide to have a bad day, you will lighten the load of those that deserved one, that you were told to bless by the last preacher you met.
I can’t say enough about how crazy life seems, every day I help to create more of it, and it’s really hard to keep up with myself.
