Today’s Inspirational Quote:
“Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don’t matter,
and those who matter don’t mind.”
— Bernard M. Baruch
Recently I read a variant / pseudo version of the above phrase and I was thinking – LOL ! 🙂
Poke Fun AtMeaning:Making fun of something or someone; ridicule.
When you lose your originality, you search the web. When your borrowed phrases exhaust and your plagiarism is exposed, one chooses to get back at people by twisting, twirling, modifying, stretching, shortening Quotes to misuse, abuse and put to disuse in order to Poke Fun At people who reveal your Truth but hold back due to professional secrecy.
Elephant in the RoomMeaning:Ignoring a large, obvious problem or failing to address an issue that stands out in a major way.
People who skirt, deflect and avoid issues while taking stances which are aggressive, abrasive and false pretenses but when they are exposed, their falsehood is open they still do not have the courage to see the Elephant in the room and behave like blind, deaf, mute people showing off their ‘Handicap'(as in Golf) to save the Facepalm moments.
- Beating Around the Bush
- Someone who is beating around the bush is someone who avoids the main point.
- This is Self-Explnatory.
The people I am talking about have three distinct qualities.
First, they are willing to disagree ferociously, but talk civilly, (writing blasphemously with full blown profanity when challenged) about nearly every meaningful subject: religion, abortion, immigration, the nature of consciousness.
Second, in an age in which popular feelings about the way things ought to be often override facts about the way things actually are, each is determined to resist parroting what’s politically convenient using memory of convenience, logic of convenience and in the end wanting to make you see their TRUTH as your truth. Some of them are Pseudo-intellectuals and at last count someone said there are 150 of them in Delhi alone who are peddling some media house plan asking for Rs.5 Crores and finally willing to settle for as little as Rs. 5000 !
And third, some have paid for this commitment by being purged from institutions that have become increasingly hostile to unorthodox thought — and have found receptive audiences elsewhere – which includes Commies, pseudo-Marxists, pseudo Nihilists, Maoists and Wayfarers who wish to overthrow the government by hook or crook – they are seditionists who indoctrinate people into being brainwashed under the influence of Drugs and fake Love.
