The Angry(War) President.***** Bush uses "Anger" as a Tool to
control/dominate.

His Mom or Dad, prolly shook him a lot during hana buttah days(drippy nose) causing his prefrontal cortex to be damaged. Or, he might have fallen off a horse or tree causing a bump.

The PF Cortex is where control over anger(emotions) is located. If damaged, then that control is minimized if not eliminated... allowing anger to quickly surface.

The War President? He is proud of his Anger is what he is saying.

We need a filter for all Presidential Candidates to prove they are not brain impaired. A simple cat scan is what it takes. It shows which parts of the brain are ON and which parts are OFF.

I have to suspect, given numerous and extensive signs, this President is on OFF

1. he's regressed to age 10, is what ...
His dad was never around, and his mom didn't want to take the trouble ('cause of her beautiful mind?) to raise * and his siblings. So she appointed * as her "enforcer". He set about doing this, probably the hardest he's worked at anything in his life ... he even shot Jeb in the rear end with an air gun to punish him for some minor infraction, in the house, and she didn't complain. So poor warped little * grew up thinking that THIS is how a "real Man" ran the world.

He was a prefect or something like that at Andover, and when he got older he was the enforcer on his Poppy's campaign team. Nothing scarier than a bully who thinks people approve of him ...

So, now he's doing it for the whole world, with Rumsfeld/Cheney/Perle/Wolfowitz egging him on. The difference is, he KNOWS that nobody is ever going to come home and make him sit in the corner for going too far. If he wins that election, he will laugh at Poppy if the old man tries to stop him.

2. We can use anger, too.
We can use it to organize, and get * out of office and into a jail cell.

3. Problem is
Almost all Americans, left, right or center use 'anger' and their 'feelings' instead of rational argument to advance their political agendas. You can see that at FR and you can see it here as well.

4. Bush represents a segment of our people far larger than first thought
Brain impaired: that affect perhaps 15 to 20 % of our population. Its called brain impaired from Drugs, trauma, or congenital.

Trauma, plus the other 2: accidents, including "shake the baby time" resulting in the prefrontal cortex area of the brain being damaged permamently, taking away the ability to control emotions such as Anger, revenge etc, The Primitive Emotional side of ourselves deep inside the brain.

I think a lot of people have this affliction and don't even know it.

This would explain the Milgram Results (Stanford) where "normal" people could do evil given certain circumstances.

Are we "Infected" with people who are not aware of something wrong with themselves? From the present Public evidence of our Society and its President and how we accept this bizzarre behavior as OK, we can only now realize... OH OH wait a minute, its worse than we thought.?

Shaking the baby, causing the babys head to go to and fro can do it, damage the kid forever. This and other causes can add up. When will we find the time/money to cat scan every student to find the ones that need help to improve our Society to a new level of Reason and Sanity/Prosperity

5. Hard to say what it is
For instance, 85% of all babies born, according to a study done in the mid-90s, were born with hypoxia -- abnormally low oxygen levels. In other words, strangulation by the process of birth, and suffering subtle brain damage.

Compare the feelings of emotional anxiety with the feeling of strangulation, asphyxia, or just plain old prolonged breath-holding.

But it's difficult to say exactly what damages whom and where. Trauma to the developing system can occur any time from conception to early adulthood; it's likely that significant changes can happen during adulthood, too.

Unfortunately, while Mr. Bush may need therapy, that does us no good. Most all of us need therapy. But we don't go around making a wreck of the world in the process.

6. A second thought
Remember Dr. Arthur Janov, who wrote The Primal Scream back in 1970? He continued his research with Primal Therapy and joined forces with several neuroscientists over the years. His recent books are excellent sources of information for the intelligent lay reader about the life-long effects of infantile trauma.

Find, and read, these books especially:

Why You Get Sick And How You Get Well

The Biology of Love

While you may not agree with everything Janov has to say about neuroscience and human development, they are excellent places to continue your reading.
