When you hear the term “Mind Game”, it wouldn’t be difficult to think of some type of trick being played. When I decided to use this term, it had nothing at all to do with illusions.
Mind Game is a reflection of my introduction to politics. In 2008 I passed my time behind bars listening to the radio. I was scanning the AM stations trying to find a song I heard someone singing (“Heart Shaped Box” from Nirvana). By accident, I discovered conservative talk radio.
My initial response was shock because, having an adequate understanding of the English language, I interpreted the messages as racist and full of bigotry. However, the hosts I encountered were dropping gems!
I perfected the technique of filtering out the veiled bigotry I detected from Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity in order to take home precious knowledge and education. This came during the Obama campaign so I got in on Politics 101 at the most interesting time.
It dawned on me that even the commercials on conservative talk radio polished my brain. I learned how to invest money, run a business and protect my identity from commercials alone. I was always used to hearing commercials about clubs with free alcohol and where to take an AIDS test.
During this time, I was fighting for my freedom and teaching myself the litigation process. It was a time wherein I gave my brain a bath and a deep cleansing. “Mind Game” here means “Game for My Mind to Hunt”. This is why the brain is in the tube with the binoculars, soaking up the entire game.
