MORE TIGERS; FEWER DONKEYS!
By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, July 30, 2022
The donkey told the tiger, "The grass is
The tiger replied, "No, the grass is
The discussion became
heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they
approached the lion.
As they approached the lion
on his throne, the donkey started screaming, ′′Your Highness, isn't it
true that the grass is blue?"
The lion replied, "If you believe it
is true, the grass is blue."
The donkey rushed forward
and continued, "The
tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him."
The king then declared, ′′The tiger will be
punished with 3 days of silence."
The donkey jumped with joy
and went on his way, content and repeating, ′′The grass is blue, the
grass is blue..."
The tiger asked the lion, "Your Majesty, why
have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?"
The lion replied, ′′You've known and seen the
grass is green."
The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish
The lion replied, "That has nothing to
do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is
because it is degrading for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste
time arguing with an ass and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that
question just to validate something you already knew was true!”
The biggest waste of time
is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but
only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on
discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence
presented to them, do not have the ability (or the desire) to understand.
Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that
they want is to be right even if they aren’t.
(Such people choose to put their head in the sand and ignore all the
signs around them and then act like nothing has happened at all.)
When IGNORANCE SCREAMS, intelligence

The above story was sent to
me by a friend. The story is right on
the money! In the America world of 2022,
people are at odds with each other for a myriad of reasons, mostly political in
nature. Political differences or
indifferences should be able to be resolved unless as the story goes, “There
are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, DO NOT have
the ability (or the desire) to understand. Others who ARE BLNDED BY EGO,
HATRED AND RESENTMENT, and the only thing that they want is to be
right even if they aren’t. Many
if not most of these people have made the decision to be closed minded when
presented with evidence and reports that are contrary to what they have come to
believe or what they have chosen to believe, right or wrong.
I am going on the record to
make a statement that some people will obviously argue with me while others
won’t have a clue as to what I am referring to when I use the phrase – ALTERNATIVE
I have done my research on
the main stream media. You don’t have to
look very far to realize how the story-lines as discussed all seem to be the
same no matter which television news outlet you watch or newspaper you
read. If that is true, and I believe it
is, why do YOU suppose it IS true? There can be only three reasons that I am
· They ALL share their stories BEFORE they are
aired. As viable as that may seem, I
don’t think that is what has been happening.
· They are merely repeating the story-lines and agendas that were
taught throughout a college education in journalism. I KNOW that this part IS true. The media seems to talk with just one voice
that advances only one narrative.
· They are being controlled by a small group of individuals that
tell them what they can and cannot discuss on Television or write about in the
news articles. BINGO! Not only has this small group of controllers
been educated by the same failing and very biased educational system as the
journalists who work for them, there is also another controlling group that
heretofore has been unseen and whose power has been under appreciated – ADVERTISERS.
Let’s take the last one
first – ADVERTISERS. It is
impossible NOT to have an opinion.
Everyone has thoughts about every subject and therefore either
consciously or unconsciously have agendas that match those thoughts. If a corporation is going to spend millions
of dollars on advertising on the various news outlets, it goes without saying
that the heads of those corporations paying for the advertising, would want to
see stories that most benefit them the most.
Therefore, if these news outlets want the advertising dollars to
continue to flow, they would tend to bow to the wishes and desires of these big
advertisers and run with the stories that would benefit them the most. It’s Business 101 – NEVER PISS OFF A
POTENTIAL PAYING CUSTOMER, EVER!
Then there is the small
group of news media controllers. I have
seen reports that there are only 6 individuals that own all of the main stream
news outlets – just six. Again, given
that they earned their degrees in our corrupt educational system and given that
they MUST tend to follow the wishes and desires of the corporate
advertisers, it is no wonder that all of the actual televisions broadcasts use
the exact same words and phrases in explaining the current news of the day.
Still there is yet another
controlling factor and this one is the most dangerous one of all because their
goals and ambitions are not so obvious – OUR GOVERNMENT! One need only research the term Operation
Mockingbird to learn that the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in the 1960s and maybe even before, discovered
how easy it would be to mold the minds of people (Americans and others around
the world), if you can control the message that is being shown on television
news broadcasts and news articles in newspapers. The most obvious case involved the news of
the day regarding the Vietnam War. The
War was definitely NOT going in favor of the allies fighting it. The CIA made the determination that it was
more important to gain the approval and support of the American people so they
manufactured news stories that would air on the nightly news that would
indicate that America was winning when it wasn’t. As it turned out, we lost the Vietnam War in
disgrace. Another example involves
Hunter Biden’s Laptop from Hell. The
major news outlets and all but one newspaper REFUSED to cover the story
immediately preceding the 2020 election.
It was later discovered that upwards of 10% of the people who voted for
Joe Biden would NOT have done so had they been aware of the contents of
Hunter Biden’s laptop. That may not be FAKE
news but it is definitely news suppression.
Check out Operation Mockingbird:
But why would a television
news broadcaster present news that was not true, what incentive did the
broadcaster have to put forth fake news about the Vietnam War? MONEY!
News corporations in general and news broadcasters specifically were on
the payroll of the CIA so they simply did what they were told to do and paid to
do – put forth the news stories that the CIA wanted you to see and hear. Your opinions and your beliefs were being
formed based upon false information.
Going back to the story about the donkey and tiger, one was trying to
change the mind of another to accept the obvious (the donkey) but the donkey’s
mind was made up, the grass was blue even though the Tiger and the Lion knew
otherwise. The real question is why did
the donkey BELIEVE the grass was blue.
There could be only two answers.
The donkey was either color blind and didn’t know it, OR the
donkey was fed false news and was taught (educationed) about the color blue vs.
green. If the information being fed to
the donkey repeatedly reinforced the idea that the grass was in fact blue, the
donkey had little choice but to believe the grass was blue.
People tend to believe what
they see and hear on the news albeit a television news broadcast or a newspaper article or
opinion piece. What is NOT so
obvious, are the words that are slipped into the broadcasts or articles that
reflect the OPINIONS of the people giving the broadcast writing the
article. These words and phrases can and
do make up a huge portion of the lies that are being told on a daily
basis. I challenge everyone to not just
listen to a 30-minute nightly news program, I challenge you to STUDY the
broadcast. Analyze every sentence
used. Throw out the personal words and
phrases announcers insert to embellish a storyline. Suddenly, you come away with an entirely
different point of view.
I am NOT saying that
the hundreds of INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS don’t use some of the same
techniques to discuss a story line, they do, but to my knowledge they are not
on the payroll of our government or influenced by advertisers to carry only the
stories our government or advertisers want covered. You can very easily find evidence of just how
much the government dislikes the work of independent journalists by the number
of journalists and contributors who are censored and even banished like I have
been when I was PERMANENTLY banned from Twitter. Then, one story after another over time that were
presented by Independent Journalists have almost all been proven to be
true. Yet we never see the correction or
the apologies appear on the televisions news programs and if they appear in the
newspapers, they are buried deep within the paper where most readers will never
Another way of deciphering
the above story would be to:
Never fight with a
pig! You both get dirty and the pig
Choose your battles wisely. Some battles are not worth fighting. Others are definitely worth fighting
The world needs more Tigers and fewer Donkeys!
