You Can't Teach an Old Dog........

........They have to teach themselves or they will always just be somebody's bitch.

Well, this seems to be the case for me anyway.  I have had a lifetime of sensory input that was slanted, tipped, and worked me to favor one fact, view or notion over another.  Teachers who taught me the accepted history, which conveniently left out almost all the back story and what I had accepted as truth was in fact not very close to the truth, the whole truth.  Spiritual and political leaders did their best to mold me into one of the lock step faithful.  The fact I briefly considered the priesthood as a teen and remained a Republican until 1980 proves they almost had me in their clutches forever.
