They Don’t Get It

They don’t get it. And I don’t get how they can’t get it. There is so much evidence that they SHOULD get, but they just don’t seem to even know the evidence exists. It’s like reality or truth or science or, really, anything they don’t agree with, just isn’t there. How can they not see the truth?

  1. They don’t get it, those people who support Trump for president. And they never will. “He speaks his mind,” they insist. Well yeah, but so does my drunk uncle Louie, and nobody seems to think HE should be an elected official.

  2. They don’t get it. They don’t see the way it engulfs me and suffocate me right in front of them. They can’t see the constant battle that I fight just to be near them.

    They don’t get it, but that’s good; because if they got it, that would mean that they have it as well.

  3. They don’t get it and they never will. First, the adult children are males. Second, their father doesn’t admit the truth. They have a tendency to side with him because he manipulates them. He treats them more as his “buddies” than as his sons. They don’t get it. They never did. How could they possibly understand that he physically abused their mother when they don’t want to hear what she has to say? How could they believe that the final form of abuse involved his chocking her. She blacked out very briefly, but nevertheless!! Had she called the police after that incident their names would have been all over the local newspapers. She protected them. They don’t get it.

  4. They – we – don’t get it. We’re not in a “era of change. We’re in a changed era.” We’ve got to “Think different” as Steve Jobs used to say. No longer can we think literally; we’ve got to think and communicate in metaphors (For instance, Oxford Dictionary’s Word-of-the-year is the Emoticon, “Face With Tears of Joy”). We have to think randomly, laterally rather then literally. We’ve got to move from Gutenberg to the Internet while thinking, planning, communicating. It can no longer be a case of “They don’t get it”. There is no excuse.
