Hey, gun nuts and others on the right: do you hear yourselves talking?

Of course not. These are scared, petty people who pretend that they aren’t the pawns of the oligarchs for whom they (unwittingly) bid for.

These are people stewed in Ronald Reagan’s denial. Not only do they support politics which is harmful to themselves, but they are actively ignorant of their narcissism. Participation in democracy to them is staging Lord Of The Flies without any other players’s consent. They have been ponerized to erode our commonwealth. They have been trained to despise people by demagogues who have turned in to abstractions (consider how the words liberal and socialist are used as epithets and used as synonyms by right-wing extremists while they lack the capacity to explain the difference between the two), so there for they worship inanimate objects that give these scared people power - the firearms that give them the power to inflict pain and death if they chose to use them.

For them to admit a mistake, to truly engage in dialogue where they may have to contemplate a new idea, to show regret, remorse, compassion, empathy, etc. would be the destruction of their raison d’etre and to have to face the identity crushing truth that they are as powerless and as vulnerable as anyone they have repressed with their ideology.

They are not born psychopaths but they have been ponerized. They have been so heavily influenced by psychopathic thinking that they now also act psychopathically too. For many, it’s join the club or be forever excluded. In a pathocracy, NOT acting this way will get you in trouble or broke.

He seems too dumb to be harmful, but don’t let looks and a lack of talent fool you.


Burnett says on the video that he is worried about the debt. It seems that the only debt that he worries about is his own. If you doubt me, look at his website.

If Burnett was trying to make the world a better place, it’s evident that he gave up and came up with a plan to con and chisel people in Vernal instead.

Oklahoma in The 2010 Census

Look at it: it’s one big retirement community. Barely more than 8% Latino.

No wonder Inhofe gets elected over-and-over. When you’re old and white, you can afford to be solipsistic.

An ad hominem is the best you can muster? Did you forget the rules of English composition or did you mean to omit the comma that should have come after “wait”?
But enough of giving you twice the dose of your  own snottiness: show me how you profit from the likes of Rothschilds calling the shots - like where you do your offshore banking. Else, just get use to being labled a another conservative American living in denial about his status and place in the American economy and society.

What? BJ Upton signed to the Braves for $75 million over the next five years. His signing bonus was $3 million. Why should anyone give a shit about multi-millionaires paying 4% more in taxes? This is weak, even for y’all.  

I like that they’re so concerned about one of the highest paid players for this example. I mean they aren’t poor, but they could have used someone making league minimum (like $500,000 I think) or someone that’s signing an arbitration contract.

Which is it that makes political conservatives who don’t have the means or motive to do off-shore banking identify with those who do or could?
Stockholm Syndrome?
Narcissism?
Sociopathy?

Wouldn’t one more accurately call that the decline?

    Scalia’s cafeteria constitutionalism, in which he picks and chooses the laws he ideologically agrees with and ignores the ones he doesn’t, was never on better display than in Monday’s SCOTUS decisions. In the world according to Scalia, Arizona has the rights to patrol its own borders associated with a sovereign state, but Montana must bow to federal power when it comes to obeying Citizens United (the state’s 100-year-old campaign finance law was enacted free its citizens from the corrupt control of mining interests). Or as Harold Meyerson put it in the Washington Post, “You’re sovereign when Scalia agrees with you; you’re nothing when he doesn’t.”
