"i had a dream were I was being chased by some menace that I believe to be military police. at some point I they caught up to me and tackled me to the ground and held me down. one of them took out a knife and started carving a word on the back of my neck. it was the word happiness"

Tom: This is an Alex Jones rape fantasy

Dreamer @awesomecanada:

"Alright, so I had a doozy of a dream last night. After scoring some weed at my old HS, that wasn’t really my old HS, I was walking home in the snow when the night sky was filled with spinning UFOs, all alight and humming melodically.  Some celestial beings transported down... 

And we went sledding down hill.  One of the beings, in female human form, got badly injured from sliding into a tree.  We took her to my old church basement, where a preteen dance party was underway, where she changed into her true form.  A 2-headed octopus creature. Then I woke."

Tom: This dream is about your mother. You want to fuck your mother. You need help.

Dreamer David:

I once dreamt about two bread sticks after eating bread sticks and two bread sticks is 11 so I pretty much predicted September 11....... sorry I would have warned you guys but it happened in 2010.

Tom: This is also am Alex Jones rape fantasy

This week on Cognitive Dissonance, Tom and Cecil cover more disturbing articles from recent news. The first story on the block, Pakistan bans Valentine’s Day for being Un-Islamic. No more heart shaped burkas for your sweetie. Faith-based organizations from Christian News express opposition to a St. Louis proposal adding Women who’ve aborted to the Non-Discrimination Ordinance. According to these groups:

“This horrible piece of legislation will now force city residents to be unwilling participants in the abortion business by requiring business owners and individuals to tacitly approve any ‘reproductive health’ decisions made by their employees or tenants.”

Did you know that pregnant women’s bodies aren’t their own because they are “hosts?” Oklahoma lawmaker states, “pregnant women’s bodies aren’t their own because they are “hosts.” Yup, we are still having the argument in 2017 that half of us are people. The cognitive dissonance that comes out of this story is astounding:

“I believe one of the breakdowns in our society is that we have excluded the man out of all of these types of decisions,” he said. “I understand that they feel like that is their body,” he said of women. “I feel like it is separate — what I call them is, is you’re a ‘host.’

More disturbing stories from the news:

  • Malaysia opening endorses “Gay cure” therapy through fasting.
  • Serial pedophile priest Raymond Cheek gets his three-year sentence reduced to two years, so it was not a “life crushing life sentence.”
  • Dave Daubenmire says “Public schools are engaged in The Spiritual Raping of Children...whatever that means…
  • Lance Wallnau: Donald Trump evicted witchcraft from The White House
  • Alex Jones: Lady Gaga is 'The Goddess Of Satan.'
