Popeye's Grocery Store Coercion: subliminal slavery and mind control

Popeye's Grocery Store Coercion: subliminal slavery and mind control
Going to the grocery store and paying attention can lead to a bit of frustration and confusion. If you have half a brain, know the value of a dollar, and don't like to be played for a sucker, the experience might make your blood pressure rise. How would Popeye react?

How many of us have seen meat on sale in that special bin, with a sticker on a sticker to indicate it is discounted, and found it to be the exact same price on the regular meat rack? What about the price of roses doubling during a holiday, or a sign that says "dollar off", and you find out the price was inflated for the sale.

You don't buy it, but most all would. You say to yourself, "My daddy didn't raise a fool!" and yet you continue plowing through the store, a market scientifically designed to separate you from your money, from end cap to end cap. What choice do you have? How can you win? You push the thought behind you, justifying it to be a business tactic... but deep inside you grow more and more resentful, and in the process, un-trusting.

As you stand back, it all starts to make sense. They care little or nothing about you as a shopper, but everything about their bottom line. When you realize this, you will start to wake up.

Suddenly you will trust nothing at face value. You see, there is a reason your grand-kids are crying for sugar-rich cereal, candy, and toys. It is all sold at their eye level... There around the cash register, while you are busy bagging your own groceries, they bet we are too weak and distracted to say no, and a candy bar is wrung up. Oh, you thought this happened by chance? 

Strange that you will find the glue, the paper napkins, the batteries... just the things you searched for all around the store, what you originally went for, within easy reach around the register. Is it possible they knew you would forget as you were bombarded from every side to buy anything else? Pretty smart of them? You bet. But what happens to trust when your eyes suddenly open to this? You start looking around, and you start to question.

Surely, they are not doing anything illegal. But you wonder: are they spraying something on the vegetables to keep them fresh? If that is true, is that good for me and my family? How about the meat? Seems like those rotisserie chickens don't move very fast. What keeps them fresh? It hits you: When something is on sale, is the date of expiration covered by the sale tag? And then, the more you look, the more you see. What are those red lights doing above the meat rack?

Is good business practice both an art-form and a scientific form of mind control? One might consider that, and speculate too just what the word, "subliminal," actually means. But isn't that what these methods of selling is all about?

The layout of the market is a case in point. To get to your main staples you have to go through a maze, something like a mouse going for the cheese, and along the way your eyes catch bright and sparkly items that get you thinking subconsciously. It is called subliminal advertising. Halloween candy displayed in September, Easter candy for Mardi Gras, are taking advantage of our most basic instincts, and we fall for it. They know you will nibble on those candies for months, and just before the holiday be back to restock. Very clever.

Huge chain markets spend a lot of money researching and testing, and they also have the ability to see exactly what your buying habits are. Ever wonder why they ask you for your phone number, and then tell you how much you saved by belonging to the club? Oh, you thought that was for your benefit? This information is valuable. Not just for their own knowledge, but for those advertising firms who purchase this from them. We are something akin to a gunny pig at times, mice running a maze in another, and sheep to be sheered too, and when you realize this your blood pressure will rise. What have we become?

Your senses are being used against you. Fans that pump the aroma of fresh-baked bread into the store, music designed to keep you walking slow and in a shopping mood: Your mind is so controlled you don't even hear the subtitle advertisements that fill your head with shopping ideas.

You are so frugal you actually cut out a coupon to buy a product you have never tried. Your effort was so time consuming and thought provoking you decided to buy it long before you compared price, or quality. Yes, you were set on a mission, and that mission had nothing to do with an original thought. That mission was instilled in you by them.

To win, you must reign in your bargain-hunter instincts, and use your conscious intellect, and that is not easy when you are hypnotized, mesmerized, and bamboozled.

Pause for a moment when you are pouring that little cup of freshly made Louisiana coffee that just happens to be your favorite, and ask the true reasons why it is there. Remember also, that the manager to the bag boy are only doing their job, and have little to do with company standards. If you are able, even for a moment, try to wake up from you subliminal indoctrination to see something lucidly, and point it out to the manager in a nice way. When you get home, however, call the main office and tell them you have figured out their tricks. They might seem shocked, in denial, and have a myriad of excuses. They know, however, that you are indeed their bottom line, and the possibility of losing that is their primary concern.

I think Popeye would take a stand...

I Can't stanz no more!

Author's note: A few years back while shopping for a television in Lafayette, I went to a well known department store. While considering the many varieties I noticed some little kids looking at nudity and suggestive dancing from six TVs high overhead. I asked to speak to the manager, and when I mentioned him my concerns he told me that those stations were approved by the "main office."

"Oh, the main office." I said. "So, you are not going to turn this off?"

"No," he said with a real glare of contempt.

"Well," I said. "I'm a very busy man, and really don't have time for this, but I'm going to clear my schedule, and make a prediction here. Within the week you will never be able to play these disgusting videos again, and most likely you will be out of a job."

He looked at me hard, seemingly embarrassed in front of his co-workers, and said, "Go for it."

I was wrong. It took over a month. But when I finally combined forces by email with friends, family, and their church groups, all that was played was Walt Disney theme songs and cartoons from that moment on. I got several letters of apology after that, with promises for change.

I went back periodically, but never bought a thing ever again. A year later Walt Disney was still playing, and Popeye was dancing with Oli girl.

The manager was unavailable to talk with me because he had been transferred. Did we have something to do with that? I hope so. A year later that company went out of business. Most probably, in retrospect, from the competition from another major player across the street. This disgusting immoral advertising ploy was used out of desperation for a positive bottom line, and I'd like to believe it contributed to their demise.

It might be the romantic in me, but I think we can all have a positive impact if we stand and unite. No righteous cause can lose. We should feel empathy for those who are caught up in the mechanics and the science that promotes business, but selling yourself to the company store is indeed slavery, and if you are doing wrong to keep your job, you should fall right along with them. You deserve it. A company who asks you to do wrong on their behalf, owns not only you, but your very soul as well.

Eleven powerful and consistent Conspiracy Theories to investigate on your own by Ken LaRive

Eleven powerful and consistent Conspiracy Theories to investigate on your own 

Let us consider, from the very start, that many Conspiracy Theories are not theories at all, but proven facts we have acquired from Patriot whistle blowers, declassified government documents, and conjectural and speculative stories promoted by "Truthers," that have turned out to be uncomfortably true. The following are links and videos for eleven such hypothesis, that government, corporations/industry, and bankers, try very hard to censor.  Follow the links for further study, and good luck.

My Top Ten Conspiracy Theories...

MK ULTRA: Using unwitting American test subjects for mind control experiments, using drugs like LSD.

COINTELPRO:  This Counter Intelligence Program  in the 1950's, under J. Edgar Hover, created a program of spying and eavesdropping on American Citizens that continues today in direct contradiction to our Constitution's 4th Amendment. 

Tuskegee: 40 years of illegal studies performed on 400 black me intentionally infected with Syphilis, by the United States Public Health Services.   

Fluoride: First added in the 1940's to prevent tooth decay, many adverse effects are documented, including Kidney and liver damage, calcification to the Pineal Gland, Low Immune system function, Infertility, and a lowered IQ, 

Author's note: Just because a theory seems consistent with your world view, does not make it true.  There are many sources of information, and yet, we must be careful that what we deem as truth is not just conjecture and supposition.  Getting to an irrefutable proof, a truth that cannot be denied, takes effort, time, and a research depiction from both sides.  It is hard to admit, but each of us have a hardwired preconceived notion of each of these Conspiracy theories, and so must attempt to keep an open mind, with research from every source available. Indeed history is written by the victors of war, and with time manipulated to promote various new mindsets, attitudes, frames of mind, feelings, instilled in our collective minds by what can only be described as the power elite, who control universities to media.  Do your own homework, and investigate for yourself, and you might find, if both consistent and lucky, the truth of the matter. Never give up, because nothing in this life can give us Liberty from tyranny, but TRUTH.

Traitors on the Right

This is what President Trump has to contend with on the Right, by Ken LaRive 

Neo-Conservatism: another finger on the progressive hand strangling America. 

Neo-Conservative: "A former liberal espousing political conservatism; first used in 1952." (via Websters Dictionary) The "Neo-con" is a "new" conservative who advocates the assertive promotion of democracy and United States national interest in international affairs including through military means. Originally, neo-conservatives were liberal socialist Democrats, and the movement made great gains in the 1960's.

Following World War 2, Neo-conservatism became the new enlightened thread infiltrating the Republican party. However, "Republican conservatism", originally conducive to that movement no longer exists in conjunction with the Neo-cons. Neo-Conservatism is now pro big government, pro big spending, and wholly progressive at its core. Seemingly opposed to a welfare state, the Neo-cons advance redistribution of wealth with government controlling incentives.

Republicans, in order to distinguish themselves from the Neo-Cons, often refer to them as "wolves in sheep's clothing". Holding neither a Libertarian nor Paleo-Conservative belief system, Neo-cons have betrayed the core values of the Republican party. Some Republicans have accused Neo-Cons of furthering communism and socialism, while being controlled by banking consortiums and international big business while sacrificing America's best interests. Promoting a one world order, right along with their liberal Democratic counterparts, the Neo-cons are totalitarian internationalists by nature.

Others suggest that due to unwarranted and inconsistent use, the term "Neo-con" has lost its true meaning. For example: Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Donald Rumsfeld have all been identified as leading Neo-conservatives despite being life-long conservative Republicans. Others argue that socio-economic policies define a Neo-conservative, suggesting both Cheney and Rice, having supported Irving Kristol's ideas, should be considered as such.

Republican ( and former Libertarian ) Congressman Ron Paul, a long time critic of the Neo-conservative movement, has written emphatically that Neo-conservatives attack freedom and liberty while shredding the U.S. Constitution. On the House floor, Dr. Paul commented on the historical roots of the movement, asserting that Neo-conservatism is neither new nor conservative. These speeches can be easily found on YouTube.

According to Wikipedia: "Neo-conservatism is a political philosophy that supports using economic and military power to bring liberalism, democracy, and human rights to other countries. In economics, unlike paleo-conservatives and libertarians, neoconservatives generally support a limited welfare state and "free" trade agreements; the free market, with which they are more than willing to interfere by government mandate and sanctions for overriding social and economic purposes using undeclared preemptive war.

Critics on the right attack Neo-conservatism for involving the United States with wars in the Middle East, promoting of American exceptional-ism by policies in the area that align the United States with Israel."

The book, "The Neo-conservative Revolution: Jewish Intellectuals and the Shaping of Public Policy", is the first defined history of the development of American Jewish political conservatism and the rise of a group of Jewish intellectuals and activists known as Neoconservatives. It describes the growth of perhaps a dozen such figures in the 1940s and 50s, including Irving Kristol, Nathan Glazer and Norman Podhoretz, to several hundred younger people such as Paul Wolfowitz, David Brooks and Charles Krauthammer who have had a powerful impact on American public policy, including driving the US to a preemptive war with Iraq.

Author's note: Disputes over Israel's church/state Zionist movement is in sharp conflict with Paleo-conservatives who continue to argue that neoconservatives are an illegitimate addition to the conservative movement, and that they do not serve America.

Pat Buchanan called Neo-conservatism "a globalist, interventionist, open borders ideology."

This political rift can be traced back to a defining moment in 1981. Ronald Reagan's nomination of Mel Bradford to run the National Endowment for the Humanities, was thwarted by neoconservatives who complained that he had once criticized Abraham Lincoln. Bradford withdrew. This is one defining moment, but to me, a student of history, the ultimate defining moment was the Russian Revolution.  That set the stage for Communism, all around the world, and it originated by Progressives from New York. I suggest you study, what is not taught properly in out Government run schools, from first grade to University. They have rewritten history and definitions,  to fit their narrative. Quite genius.

Though most Americans know nothing of these distinctions, it is the root of many of the policy changes in America that have created an unresponsive top-heavy government.
