About Me

I am interested in politics & history, and social justice.

GOP is ginning up a phony war between

men a nd women. They do this to make sure single women, who voted for Obama, do not find a place to discuss issues of the day unmolested. So they feel more apathy and maybe don‘t vote. They do it to alienate men from women. So men will vote for the GOP. A fake war between the sexes works for Republicans in numerous ways. I am surprised that they would stoop to online violence. Actually, when I think about it, I‘m not so surprised. The GOP is the party of psychopaths. I‘m so sorry this happened to you BB. Vibes to you. And don‘t fall for the war.

The right wing don‘t want forums to

exist where a single women may sign into. Isolating their pray is how psychopaths try to change the thinking of a coveted group. In this case the GOP want a greater percentage of single women to vote for them. And how can that happen if single women log on and get to discuss actual issues unmolested. After all healthy people get lured into a cult when the psychopath takes something away from them to destabilize them. Looks like isolating femminists is how the GOP is going to roll this election season.

Makes me wonder if Obama's sudden passiveness on ISIS isn't

to flush the rich countries in the middle east out to be more involved. By standing back Obama may be letting the Saudi Arabias of the world feel a good deal more fear at what is going on. So they will put their money and their armies on the front line. Which they should because, well, it is happening to them. Was Obama's tan suit to make him look like a laid back southern gent? Who knows.

Is creating desperate poor a self reinforcing cycle? Cause when I was at my weakest

as a teenager I would almost do anything to garner favour with a someone I followed. I wanted so much to show loyalty. I gave up almost any other friendship I had. Do weak people attack their leaders enemies be in African Americans, Liberals, etc. more often to show loyalty and belong? Are middle class people less likely to attack the so called 'other'? So by keeping the red states poorer and attacking the security of the middle class across America, the GOP is getting more bang for their buck in terms of partisanship, hate, fear and votes. And this results in more inequality and more power at the top.

Maybe congress will function like it has three parties anyhow.

It is unchristian for the GOP to turn social norms back to what they were

before Christianity. Where people were suspicious of each other and thrived on conspiracy and scapegoating. But they've done it. And it looks intentional. I guess they were having no luck with an educated populace. Or a judao-christian one. Does the religious right answer for this? Where their values are actually under attack from the right, not the left that is always blamed.

Does the existance of a robust and healthy

middle class cause inflation, and thus erode the wealth of the rich? Is this why the GOP attack the foundations of middle class existance? Cause I read somewhere yesterday that constant inflation didn‘t exist until the 20th Century. And neither did robust middle classes. So with inflation the rich have had to invest really hard to beat inflation over the years. And, by going after all social programs that create middle class folk, and all regulations that grow the middle class, the rich won‘t face inflation and get all of their stock growth as pure profit. What narcissism. To go about such drastic change to make life even easier for themselves.IMHO

And they don't meet up with the educated teabaggers because the educated live

somewhere else. So they reinforce each others prejudices about each other. Unlike during WWII generation when people with money fought along side people who came from nothing and learned from each other. Here the educated and the uneducated could learn from each other's experiences but that doesn't occur so they end up both voting against government: the first because it helps the poor and they don't care for that, the second group because government is filled with pointy headed intellectuals telling them what to do. And all the rhetoric is vague enough about 'big gubment' that they both see what they want to in the tea party candidates. So because they don't meet up they don't realize they are actually voting on issues that are against each other.

I see this issue as being less about guns and more about the right inventing red meat

they can throw at their base as a wedge issue. A completely manufactured by the right wedge issue.

Because the psycopaths in the republican

party have been telling them lies about their prowess and importance. So all their secret narratives about being ‘masters of the universe‘ has been seemingly actualized. Because they have life so easy that they might get that empty feeling unless the interconnect to greater world and happily be a little cog, all in it together with all of America, they have been toldu instead things like they ‘are the job creators‘. Which is a lie. It is psychological piracy of one political group over another. The middle class are the job creators. That is the engine. So these rich are fed lies and their heads get big, their hearts small. And then the middle class comes along and says ‘hey, we create the jobs and that is what we should be doing here‘. And the rich feel their big heads, and the accompanying rights to be call job creators, attacked. They feel like they are losing territory. So they go tribal. And it is war. The basic thing is that the psychopaths in the GOP took something from the middle class and gave it to the rich which grew their egos and made them feel extra connected in a way in which they want others to fawn over their brilliance. And the middle class, by doing what they are good at and just being themselves, has seemingly attacked. And it all started with psychopaths spreading lies to the rich that made their heads swell. They truly feel their person was doing nothing different when out of nowhere middle class people and their politicians attacked for no reason. It is about the territory/narratives of people‘s brains.
