Zarqawi Murdered?

Susan Turnbull, Vice Chair of the Democratic Party, officially "misspoke" when she said on the Bryan Suits Show on KVI earlier this evening that Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was murdered*.

*The unlawful killing of one human by another, especially with premeditated malice

In response to the comments about Liberal Larrys use of the word "ChickHawk" to describe Bryan Suits, please check out Larrys site to understand where that is coming from. I would personally recommend reading the post, What Part of "Safe House" Doesn't Bush Understand?

I tuned in a bit late to Bryan's show tonight. Was she being interviewed? Or was it a taped piece?

The amazing moral equivalence from the democratic leadership is amazing.

I listened to the whole thing, she mis-spoke. Yes she initially said murder but it was obvious that it was a mistake.

No, I'm not a commie loving Murray voting liberal, but want to extend the truth.

I listened to Chickhawk Suits and heard her comment. She obviously did not intentionally mean to say that Al Zarqawi was murdered. Be realistic. The president's poll numbers aren't yet low enough for her to get away with saying such things in public. Since "It was all a stunt" didn't go over very well, the official party line is now "Al Zarqawi's death doesn't mean anything" and we're going to stick with it.

Al Zarqawi was the head of the Democratic Party in Iraq and that is why it was wrong to hurt him. He was only giving neckline adjustments to conservatives and that is no offense worthy of punishment. As soon as he was done over there, Pelosi had a seat for him here in Congress where she was hoping to introduce him to her friends across the aisle.

Liberal Larry's use of the term Chickhawk to discribe Bryan Suits, has me scratching my head.

Liberal Larry,
Can you explain how Suits is a "Chickenhawk"?

LiberalLarry said ChickHawk, not ChickenHawk, which most certainly would not apply to Bryan Suits. I think he was saying he thinks he's cute.

Thanks, but I still think Larry should explain. I assumed he just made a typo. Either way, I am questioning his use to the term.

Liberal Larry is a conservative who writes a satirical website as an uber-liberal. Follow his link and have a few laughs.

I heard her. Honestly I thought she was oblivious to the word usage until Brian said, "Do you mean murder?" And she spent a minute backpedaling and saying that of course she didn't mean murder.

Brian also referred to the readers of Daily Kos in a way that implied the were fringe nutters and she mentioned she was a Kossack as a way to redeem them as mainstream.

I think she did mean murder. Look, most of the Kossers think that the war is illegitimate and illegal. A premeditated death which is illegal is murder.

She may have shied away from the word because it would be politically bad. She may have not thought out the implications of her rhetoric and the use of the word "murder" brought her face to face with it.

Murder, as opposed to killed, is a charged word implying wrongfulness on behalf of the US Military. I think it was a slip but one that is a logical meaning flowing from the train of thought espoused by the Kos crowd and the Democratic party. The mouth speaks from the abundance of the heart as the proverb goes.

Neurolinguistic Programming

In the early 1970s in America Richard Bandler, then a young college student studied the work of Fritz Perls and later Virginia Satir and found that he could reproduce their high-level therapy skills to a degree that even surprised him. Bandler seemed to have a natural ability to mimic (model) the language patterns by Virginia and Fritz.

At the University of California at Santa Cruz, Bandler who was well versed in the teachings of patterns in mathematics and computers teamed up with a college professor, John Grinder to help him understand the processes that were at work. Soon Bandler and Grinder, who used what he knew about patterns in linguistics, created a new model for personal growth called NeuroLinguistic Programming.

Bandler and Grinder had set out to model the hypnotic skills of Milton Erickson. They had astounding results. They built a communication model about human "thinking" and "processing" and used that model of how we see images, hear sounds, reproduces smells and tactile experiences in our mind to track and model the structure of subjective experiences.

Sounds very complicated but really it works very simply. Here is an example as used by Paul McKenna - probably the best & most successful hypnotist in the world.

Close your eyes and think of a negative memory. Become involved in the situation as best as you can. Feel the emotions that you felt, see the things you saw and hear the things you heard.

Now take that memory and project it onto a mental screen seeing yourself in the picture. Put a frame around the picture and view it as if it is an old photograph. Next drain all the colour from the picture and shrink the screen to the size of a matchbox.

Have the feelings associated with the picture decreased in any way?

Another good example of NLP involves Anchors. Have you ever smelt a certain perfume or aftershave and had it remind you of a certain person or situation? Gone to a certain place that brings feelings long forgotten flooding back? Or been in any situation that creates emotional responses that would not normally be associated with it? Well if you can answer yes to any of these then you have experienced anchors. Some anchors are associated with positive feelings and some with negative emotions. However, you should be aware that anchors can be consciously installed or already existing ones altered. Here is an example:

Think of a time when you were really happy. If you can't think of one then imagine something that would make you feel really happy. See what you would see, hear what you would hear and feel what you would feel. Really get into the picture and try to experience it as though it were happening now.

Now brighten the colours and make them richer. Increase the volume. Make the picture bigger, brighter, louder. That's it and more and more....

Now press your first finger against your thumb and fully experience your happy feelings. Do this everyday for 2 weeks and you will create an anchor that will instantly recreate these feelings. Whenever you want to feel like that again just press your thumb and first finger together and wham the feelings will come flooding back! Don't believe me? Just try it and see!!!
