Inside this cynical, sarcastic, curmudgeonly shell is a big ol' caring, sensitive man longing to be free. I have finally found a way to utilize both of myselves by combining my knowledge of and passion for psychology with my snarky alter-ego.

The Death Drive Of MAGA, Trump's Narcissistic Destructiveness

The Death Drive of MAGAs and Trump’s Narcissistic Destructiveness Make a National Nightmare


Reading time: 5 minutes
Why do we have MAGAs showing up in hospitals with #COVID19 but refusing to believe that they have #COVID19? Is it just social support for their continuing cognitive dissonance or is this an example of Freud’s death drive at work? You decide.

Urge Emily Murphy to Sign the Paper

A Quickie: The Pressure @GSAEmily is Under to NOT #SignThePapers is a Sign of Trump’s and the GOP’s Authoritarianism


Reading time: 3 minutes
We all wonder why @GSAEmily doesn’t just sign the papers to ascertain that #BidenHarris are the apparent winners of Election 2020. She is complying in advance with the desires of an authoritarian.

Reading time: 3 minutes
The circular firing squad is back on as progressive and moderate Dems argue over who snatched a squeaker from the jaws of a landslide in 2020. Of course, we can’t just celebrate having won one, right? Much of the debate turns on the role of “Defund the Police.” Unfortunately, the cognitive psychology of it points the finger squarely at it.

Are Political Lies Protected Speech?

Is Knowingly Lying for Political Gain Protected Speech? Or a Solution for Bridging our Partisan Divide


Reading time: 6 minutes
There is much talk about bridging our political divide with lots of talk about reaching for white voters being regurgitated. The real problem is the social support that the lies of Trump and the GOP have. To break that social support, we have to consider banning knowingly telling lies for political gain. Those lies are destroying the country.
