    A Psychopathic Friend Indeed, Part 2 

    To continue our experiment, I just left another mean message on a Facebook advert for Tina’s fundraising initiative. We’re testing to see if “abusive messages” by a known psychopath are enough to sway potential sponsors into rebelling against the abuse and pledging money to the No Psychos cause. I have hopes that this latest stream of nastiness and apparent betrayal will result in an increased interest in donation. Tina was extremely skeptical when we last spoke, so we’re just waiting to see who’s right. If these experiments do work, then it could be something we’d roll out and use more often. The Gofundme initiative has floundered in recent months, failing to attract anything like the donations Tina had hoped for. If you’re reading this and are interested in this experiment, or just want to take pity on the unloved ‘Donate’ button, please do go to https://www.gofundme.com/psychopath and give $5 to an extremely worthy cause. Donations in other currencies are also accepted.

    The post.

    The ugly troll sets to work.

    A Psychopathic Friend Indeed 

    Some people can NEVER be trusted. There are roughly 12 million psychopaths in the U.S. alone – could be your family, friends, coworkers, or politicians. They do not belong in policymaking positions. I am running psychopathy awareness campaigns to teach people how to quickly spot a psychopath.

    WHY???

    Psychopaths do not care about the consequences of their actions on other people. If you are unlucky enough to be associated with one, you have a good chance of being stomped on. A psychopath has no problem smearing your name, slandering you, abandoning you, cheating you, tricking you, or otherwise causing your downfall.

    As if to prove my point – here is an example of my “friend” James posting his disordered drivel to my ad on Facebook.

      I might point out that We can’t keep Them out of the corporation Most call “government…” Psychopaths OWN that corporation (and ALL the “governments” on Our planet), and WE have no say in who THEY SElect for the offices of that corporation. They create the ILLUSION that We have any say. This is why I advocate not consenting to Their rule. As long as We have top-down controlminds, psychopaths WILL find a way to be in control of Us. Far better is to reclaim Our personal sovereignty on OUR planet (stolen from Us by the psychopaths in control through “trusts” and deceit) and consent to ways of operating Human society that promote the CARING Ones to take care of things…

      You CAN trust psychopaths — to be psychopaths. That said, I expect politicians to act on their own self-interest. Let your representative know you won’t vote for hir unless s/he votes the way I want. The problem is people who vote against their own self-interest like working-class folk who voted for Reagan. Since working people outnumber the rich, if we all voted our self-interest, we’d be better off.

        Even if We ALL “voted” for a good Individual, THEY (the owners of the corporation They indoctrinate Us into thinking is Our “government”) will TELL Us We “voted” for the One(s) THEY SElected. Just saying…

      They can’t indoctrinate us unless we let them. Psychopaths are very hard to brainwash or indoctrinate so we are likely to vote more rationally than most. I know they have the whole system rigged but our votes still count as long as we can stop them from gerrymandering too much. With Citizens United, deep pockets have an enormous advantage of financing campaigns. Still, those of us who are still capable of rational thought are not going to zombie-like vote for whoever has the greatest number of commercials. Too much television and a tendency to allow emotions to rule is one of the biggest problems. Of course, the Democratic Party is also partially to blame. The stupid, cynical politicians are their own (and our) worst enemies. They don’t have the guts to trust their own ideology and they keep coming on like Republican-lite. And voters are too hung up on personalities. How else could intellectually bankrupt slogans like “crooked Hillary” have so much power? If Bernie Sanders had been the candidate of the Democratic Party, he would be president today. But Democrats are too busy wresting defeat from the jaws of victory. Sigh! Just don’t trust psychopaths for that.

      Liked own comment to try and keep it here. My rationale is that when I try to approve others’ comments, and it doesn’t let me, liking and replying seems to override the system and approve the comment by default.

        Shite, it didn’t work.

        Pasted from before:

        I am hopeless at computers, but does anyone know why my comments keep disappearing?

        This is my fourth attempt:

        Did I do this right, Tina? I agree with what you said; it will be interesting to see how people on Facebook react. My theory is that the negative attention from a known liar and deviant individual (myself) would work as a kind of reverse psychology, and spur more people to click the link, and donate money.

    Dear Kentucky, Mitch McConnell Might Be a Psychopath 

    Mitch McConnell Contradiction in facial expression - a smile with a frown - smirk and dead eyes

    Contradiction in facial expression – a smile with a frown – smirk and dead eyes

    McConnell: ‘Winners make policy, losers go home” and more quotes on “Stuff Psychopaths Say.”

    “No majority leader wants written on his tombstone that he presided over the end of the Senate,” the minority leader said.

    He continued: “Breaking the rules to change the rules is un-American. I just hope the majority leader thinks about his legacy, the future of his party, and, most importantly, the future of our country before he acts.”

    Are these the words of Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) as the Republican majority changed Senate rules this week to do away with filibusters of Supreme Court nominations?

    Actually, they were uttered in 2013, by then-Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), when Democrats pushed through a similar filibuster change for lesser nominations.

    That McConnell did a 180 on the topic — going from the institutional defender of the filibuster to the man who destroyed it — is unsurprising. He has frequently shifted his views to suit the needs of the moment. But in this case McConnell was correct in 2013, and what he just did this week was even more ruinous than what he accused the Democrats of doing then.

    By rights, McConnell’s tombstone should say that he presided over the end of the Senate. And I’d add a second line: “He broke America.” No man has done more in recent years to undermine the functioning of U.S. government. His has been the epitome of unprincipled leadership, the triumph of tactics in service of short-term power.

    After McConnell justified his filibuster-ending “nuclear option” by saying it would be beneficial for the Senate, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said this: “Whoever says that is a stupid idiot.”

    McConnell is no idiot. He is a clever man who does what works for him in the moment, consequences be damned.

    Back in 1994, McConnell lamented to the conservative Heritage Foundation that Republicans hadn’t used the filibuster enough: “I am a proud guardian of gridlock. I think gridlock is making a big comeback in the country.”

    For the next quarter-century, he made sure of it. Back then he was fighting all attempts at campaign-finance reform and spending limits, championing disclosure of contributions as the antidote. But when the Supreme Court allowed unlimited “dark money” in campaigns without disclosure, McConnell reversed course and has fought all attempts to enact disclosure.

    McConnell famously declared in 2010: “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”

    ProPublica’s Alec MacGillis, author of a McConnell biography, “The Cynic,” reports former Republican senator Robert Bennett’s account of what McConnell told fellow Republicans after Obama’s election: “Mitch said, ‘We have a new president with an approval rating in the 70 percent area. We do not take him on frontally. We find issues where we can win, and we begin to take him down, one issue at a time. We create an inventory of losses, so it’s Obama lost on this, Obama lost on that.’ ”

    And that’s what he did. By 2013, for example, 79 of Obama’s nominees had been blocked by filibusters, compared with 68 in the entire previous history of the Republic.

    After Justice Antonin Scalia’s death was confirmed last year, it took McConnell less than an hour to say that the vacancy should be filled by the next president. He called keeping Obama’s nominee off the court “one of my proudest moments.”

    While other Republicans have at times been willing to criticize President Trump’s outrages, McConnell has been conspicuously quiescent. Although his predecessors at least attempted collegiality, McConnell practices no such niceties (recall his “nevertheless, she persisted” silencing of Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren). But most characteristic of McConnell is his tendency to shift his views to suit current exigencies (on the minimum wage, withdrawal from Iraq, earmarks, abortion, labor and civil rights) and his adroitness at gumming up the works: forcing clerks to spend hours reading a bill aloud on the floor; opposing immigration legislation he’d encouraged; asking for a vote on a debt-ceiling proposal and then trying to filibuster it; urging the Obama administration to support a bipartisan debt commission and then voting against it.

    Now comes the filibuster’s demise. In the current cycle of partisan escalation, it’s only a matter of time before the filibuster is abolished for all legislation, killing the tradition of unlimited debate in the Senate dating back to 1789. The Founders did this so minority rights would be respected and consensus could be formed — and McConnell is undoing it.

    Two years ago, when a Democrat was in the White House, McConnell said he would only abolish filibusters of Supreme Court justices if there were 67 votes for such a change. This week, he employed a maneuver to do it with 51 votes. It suited his momentary needs, but the damage will remain long after McConnell’s tombstone is engraved.

      Much as I hate the GOP, I have a grudging respect for them because of their ruthless pursuit of having their way. At the same time, I have a reluctant contempt for weak-kneed Democrats who let them get away with it. Perfect case in point, when the Repugs refused to do their jobs in the process of confirming (or denying) Obama’s Supreme Court appointment. They just don’t give a damn. They’re like Honey Badgers. Everyone shakes his head and says how wrong it was and the GOP just goes ahead and does it anyway. Result? They now have that seat. Too bad the GOP agenda is everything I’m against. I would love to see that ruthlessness used in favor of an agenda I would like.

      As for the nuclear option, I wanted Obama to use it to pass the health care bill. I’m glad someone finally got rid of the filibuster although I don’t like what they did it for. Maybe now, when our idiot country finally wakes up and kicks these fascists out of office and we have a Democratic Congress, they will be able to actually pass legislation.

      Don’t Psychopath test politicians. We need a good progressive psychopath in government to make his ideas actually work.

      All high-up politicians are psychopaths. Maybe a few are puppets of psychopaths. Maybe. The psychopaths in control do NOT let Any get high up in politics unless They are on board with the psychopaths’ agenda.
