Good Bye President Ford
Autism traits of President Ford and Jack Paar
I often see President Ford and the old Television host Jack Paar on the same plane and I wonder if BOTH were not autistic to some degree. Everyone admires Paar and Ford for the ability to bring the best out in people and yes, even less than perfect public appearances. In a time and space well beyond the grasp of modern Autism these were honed autism traits. Autism Thoughts and the deep thoughts and the logic in Paar and Ford present as "wonderful" for the viewing public but in terms of an autism thought they are simply normal and logical. Autism WAS at one time calm useful if not a bit odd and strange thoughts as personified by President Ford and Parr.
Both figures were very logical and honest and had a way of opening up people. Their honesty and fairness could easily have autism roots. I have seen over the years as I not only learned Autism but took my autism thought to the threshold of Normal thoughts I had to learn how to be unlogical to be seen as normal. Please note honed Autism Thoughts are very complicated and need to be toned down quite a bit before traditional people get a grasp of them and us. It seems Paar and Ford also had that natural "autism" thought process but they were able to make it work for them. They knew just when enough was enough and what the general public would stand for. Paar was a pioneer in many things from the radical people he had on his show to the subjects he talked about. Only someone aspie would make sure all sides at one time or another were represented. Some of Paar's radical combination included Gay and Black people on the same show that was pretty radical stuff in the early 1960's. Paar even interview Castro in Cuba.
If the autism Anthropology ever gets discovered and admitted to people will be shocked and impressed of the natural logic of autism thought. I know the autism students of today present as HORRIBLE but, it is only because modern autism (unintentionally, I hope) took away our very best chance at overcoming. While we barely made it and done our experience on the sly modern Autistic don't even get the slim chance we had. Modern Autism has made a mountain out of a molehill and today Autism is too big of a powerhouse and monster in it s own right to ever be seen as what it really was. What a shame we have figured out man's mind and here we are too little too late.
Good Bye President Ford , may history be kind to you.
