"Sometimes you got to go to that extra level, take another step, step back, and get a running start on it. See right now I have to get to a point, a point most people won't go because it's a little bit to close to the truth, and the truth isn't something that's gonna benefit them in the way that the want it to be. See my dad taught me a long time ago, it's not what someone does it's why they do it that really matters.
And that's what you should judge them for. People can be the nicest person in the world, but that's only to get you to think they're nice, so they can let down the guard a little bit in your door and then you go in there door and they mess with your mind. Anyhow, too many people trying to get you to think the way they want you to think; what we say, is trying to get you to think, whatever way that may be, but to realize the way you're thinking may not be the right way and give it a little extra thought.
So with that in mind, the question is, what do we do why we do? Everyone's got a motivation and sometimes you got to judge that to see where their power's coming from or where they're trying to throw it. You see most people think they think but they're not really thinking so they start thinking cause they thought they already thought, but they never did in the first place so it's their own little safety level. So I sit down and said, if there's all these people so smart thinking so good, how come every day of my life there's so many damn stupid people doing stupid things.
See a wise man once told me, he said, Mike, there's two clubs, there's the stupid people and the smart people. There ain't nobody blocking the door at the stupid people entrance, anyone can go there. But the smart entrance, it's a little more exclusive. So what you wanna belong to? The country club, or the cardboard shack? The penthouse or the outhouse? Seems like an easy decision to me.
So what we're all thinking about right now is what we're talking about, what we're talking about is what we're thinking about, and that's the whole point: you should think before you talk. So where we're at right now is a place that we want to go: a little bit of help. See: everyday, everywhere you go, people do stupid things. Three hundred and sixty five days out of the year, people not thinking. People that have the ability to think, that aren't thinking.
So what we should do is nominate one day. Call it International Don't Be Stupid Day. Now what this is gonna do is be a little reminder, maybe we could wear a pin, maybe you could send a tape to somebody, and when they start to do something you say, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on there partner. Today is Don't Be Stupid Day, so you can't do that. So what we want you to do is just take a twenty four hours out of your life, think about all them dumb things that you just go right ahead and do, when you know damn well you wouldn't want anyone else to do it, if you really cared about them. So start caring about yourself, start using your mind, and as we say, start your brain."
