What could possibly drive people to refuse to wear masks, social distance, or stay at home as much as possible? It just defies all logic and reason, right? Here are the three psychological factors that combine for the perfect storm of conservative resistance to containing the #COVID19 pandemic

I KNOW, how could it be longer than, “He’s a narcissist! ‘Nough said.” But that’s not much of a blog post, though. I explain why narcissism makes him more likely to blunder into treason and be manipulated by Putin into committing treason than doing so as a result of blackmail.

I KNOW, TL;DR.
The degree that the Black community is free and equal is the degree that America has achieved a more perfect union. Our Black community has borne our systemic racism with grace and humility.

If you are as worried sick as I am about the fate of our democracy, then you’ll want to read my review of Masha Gessen’s 2016 article, Autocracy: Rules for Survival that was published in The New York Review of Books. When we compare her six rules to the sorry state of affairs, real despair sets in. It’s like watching one of those slasher horror films, you know what’s going to happen and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. Even though the character is being extremely stupid and doing stuff no one would ever do outside of a movie, you still gotta sit there and watch it.

How far has the press fallen into the news-tainment trap? Was Biden’s “war story” gaffe a lie, a sign of senility, or a common memory error? It was a common memory error. Why wasn’t it reported and defended as such?

It’s been a big week with Notorious RBG’s health scaring all of us, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber freaking out all over the world’s stage, the world literally burning, and tariffs. We cover it all here in this week’s weekly call list. It gives you something positive you can do to help, which at least will help you cope with your stress and nerves.

Every now and then someone — usually the Ol’ Pussy Grabber — from the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s regime says the quiet part out loud. And, then there are those that make it so very clear and plain and obvious what the quiet part is by their asinine statements that they needn’t bother either saying it out loud. Of course, I’m referring to Ken Cuccinelli’s comments about the Statue of Liberty and immigration. We already knew that they were going after all immigrants except the pressed and white ones. We he made clear was that they were working hard to gaslight us about it. Don’t let them gaslight you! Know the poem.
By chanting “send her back” every attendee at Trump’s campaign rally in North Carolina has branded him or herself as a racist fascist. Make no mistake, there is a dangerous escalation of the fascist tendencies of the GOP.
In our ongoing sometimes series, Fascification WATCH in which Ye Olde Blogge documents our seemingly irrevocable slide into fascism. Today’s issue: the threat to put the citizenship question on the census in spite of a Supreme Court decision preventing it.
It’s another American presidential election, which started more than 18 months before the actual election! American politics are crazy. But, the Dems are debating tonight and we all wanna know who won, who zung, who clung, who hung. I’ll be live-blogging the debate as it is live-streamed in Paris at 3:00 AM. Join me here for a snarky, sarcasticky, profaney good time as we all watch together!
Being a woman and a candidate for major office is fraught with difficulties. Expectations, perceptions, and judgments are all very different for women than men. Elizabeth Warren may have some advantages that the other women for the Dem nomination don’t have.
I’ve been home sick with a nasty cold or flu thing that has been going around. It’s that cold-flu that leaves you anxious… or maybe it is just the times that we […]
As a part-time blogger and a full-time citizens not only do I have difficulty keeping up with all of the mishegas overflowing the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s enormous immoderate sibaritist gut, I have […]
Scott Pruitt’s EPA is as clear of an example as you could hope for when groupthink takes over an organization and a psychopath is in charge.
I’m reviewing Katy Tur’s “Unbelievable” in three parts! It’s that good! Fantastic treatment of the campaign, covering a campaign, being a reporter, and being a human being caught up in the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s gaslighting narcissistic abuse meat grinder. Katy comes out on the other side stronger and better for it… and you will, too.
Clinton’s book is about sexism and intimidating women. Tur’s book is about sexual assault. How many women have experienced sexual aggression? How many men have committed sexual aggression?
We are rightly worried about what the Ol’ Pussy Grabber will do in response to North Korea. He is just narcissistic enough and poor enough executive functioning that he could nuke ’em on a whim or he could figger it is a clever political ploy to win the 2018 Congressional elections. North Korea is predictable and stable by comparison.
How you viewed the condition of the country probably determined your vote. If you saw the country as doing OKAY, you probably saw the Ol’ Pussy Grabber as too big of a risk. But if you saw the country has going in the wrong direction, you were tempted to take a chance on the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. What does behavioral economics, loss aversion, and risk seeking tell us about 2018?
It is clear that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is ginning up reasons to dismiss Robert Mueller. But only a narcissist would believe that a six year old dispute over a golf fee would be a conflict of interest. #Resistance
