Telling others not to talk to each other.

    I have just run into two situations where the parties were told not to talk to each other about something.
    Personally I understand that concept, both in business and in personal life. Sometimes we just do not want people sharing information.

    But just lately I saw it happen in both business and personal where it was done to cover up basic falsities.

    Has this happened to you that you know of? Or have you done it?

      I am watching the insurance business be told to shut up by the "administration". 
      They are being told to not tell the public what is really happening.

      By next year 66 percent of small companies will have dropped their insurance followed by 44 percent of large companies.   The design of Obamacare makes it so complex for them to keep in force without violating a zilliion rules or getting enormous fines.  This is an effective way for "O" and company to get to "single payor".  So the insurance companies are told not to talk.   The insurance companies are actually so greedy they think they will be rewarded under O care.   They will for a few months.   Then when the executive order for single payor comes, forget it.

      Eric--I see what you are talking about all around.   People call up on AM radio talk shows about it every day.   Media people at NBC, CBS, ABC are terrified of telling the truth because the ones who tried or were working on a breaking story were either killed or hacked.   

      The crooks are everywhere.  The NSA has about 20 people (WND.COM) ready to come forth and spill all the beans.  We are on the brink of a dictatorship.   People at all levels are being told not to talk.

    I believe one of the greatest damages that has been done by our nation, and in the world, is what people SAY.  The Bible is correct that the tongue is very evil.

    Many People just want to be right and bicker and argue about it...and God help them if a person disagrees.  They want to be in charge of what someone says to others.

    I think one of the biggest wastes of time is arguing.  Or trying to tell others what to say or not to say.
    Our world is in the condition it is in because of WORDS.

    In my whole lifetime, I have seen people vote for a President of the United States, then criticize, criticize, criticize...even to where the word, "hate" is used.  "the president is ruining our country," blah, blah, blah.  THEN, he finishes his term, people can't wait to get rid of him, vote for someone else to criticize and hate.  THEN a few years later the one who finished his term DIES, and oh, "what a wonderful man he was!"  People THEN rave about what a great person he was.

    It all comes down to one thing: keep still, listen, thank the person for his/her opinion ...then do what your inner/spiritual intuition tells you to do...

    For myself, I choose to be a peacemaker, as I have made mistakes with my mouth in the past...I would like to think I have learned valuable lessons from these errors.  Words are powerful.  Words have destroyed me more than any physical illness or surgery I have had.  Nasty words are like a tube of toothpaste...once the toothpaste is out, you cannot put it back in the tube.

      Sparklea,

      That is very heartfelt. Thank you much. I will think on this.

    You are told this because the person telling you not to say a word to another has an agenda which is definitely not in your favor. I have had a personal experience at work involving a similar situation and believe me I was surprised at the outcome. So heads up!
