All you can do is shake your head. For all viewers know watching TV stations, there are no Democrats running for anything. Henry McMaster vs Catherine “Buzzsaw” Templeton plus Todd Atwater, John Warren, Yancy McGill, etc. They all try to out-Trump each other by shooting guns, rattling snakes, and throwing mud. Buzzsaw (a woman) is called “Buzzcat” by her opponents, and those ads show a saw cutting through boards of “ethics” and “integrity.” Since politics is a game, and they all love Clemson, (where debates were held,) they have to demonize their opponents because that’s how you, as Trump put it, “win, win, WIN!” They brag about being supported by the NRA, stopping sanctuary cities, fighting illegal immigration, abortions for any reason, stopping the legalizing of marijuana, resisting Obama’s legacy, deregulating all industries, all while loving God and sports barbecues. (Oddly, they decry cock fighting or bunnies being left by someone near a railway, but have no problem eating grain fed beef, slaughtered lambs in factories (one caused a stench that closed down a nearby school, but there was no followup: they accepted the factory “response” not allowing any cameras inside or explanation. They moved on to Clemson sports. Follow the money (and the lies.) Third party? Coffee Party? No one ever heard of that. Mission Impossible. There are never three teams on the killing fields. It’s all about EGO, which is delusion anyway. Rinnnnnng. Just got a robo-call from Catherine Templeton’s office asking how I’ll vote. Do Not Call list doesn’t matter: they are above the law. Meanwhile a televangelist wants to buy another jet. No problem for these clowns calling and airing endless ads. They “win” by shooting their mouths off, and denying science. The result? Lose/lose.
“It’s time for an upgrade. I need $54 Million. Plant a seed of faith!” Use your lotto money. Or ask Kim to ask Trump for a pardon. Or money to drain the swamp. In downtown Miami after the 19th named hurricane this summer. Hurricane Stormy.
Narcissism is viral in America especially. We value audacity and power, while “success” means money. It really doesn’t matter how you “earned” your money: on the backs of others is fine. Slave labor, like Nike. There are scenes about this in movies, and it is the theme of Blade Runner 2049. Also watch The Rundown movie: great film, with satire, guns, a slaver with whips, and good ole American Greed. Tom Cruise played an amoral hit man in Collateral, and summed it all up nicely. See HERE for quotes. We voted in a narcissist President, believing all the Fake News spread by InfoWars and Facebook. Both had ads saying Hillary was dying, and had something to do with murdering children. Whatever Hillary did or didn’t do, supporting the torture and murder of kids while eating pizza was not one of them. Now Assad is in denial, as is Putin, for doing it. Denial and counter-attack is a tactic of sociopaths. Narcissists are charming liars, too. They manipulate other people, the media, and actually believe their own lies. So some might even pass a polygraph! “Worship me,” is their message. The entire world is their stage. No trick is left unlearned. Goal? World domination, like Stewie on Family Guy, his head the shape of a football. Trump is attacking Comey for his new book. He said Comey should be jailed. Comey (a Republican) got Trump elected in the first place by making his last minute statement about Hillary’s emails. Now he says Trump should not be impeached: “People voted their values, and we should let this play out.” WW3? We shall see. Alex Jones of InfoWars, who also helped Trump get elected (and whom Trump called to thank him) went “ballistic” over Trump firing missiles at Assad, and said “F—-Trump!” many times over on his show. Jones, also a narcissist (and Sandy Hook denier) said WW3 is coming soon, adding that Russia and Syria were trying to fight ISIS in “a good fight.” He too waves flags, despite Einstein once saying that “Nationalism is the measles of humanity.” (Who are you going to believe: a college dropout selling male enhancement products or the Pulitzer Prize winner in Physics who was named “Person of the Century.”) Olympics and the Spartans, who forced kids to kill each other? We could go on and on, here. The point is that narcissism is delusion, including self delusion. No one is King of the World or universe, or will ever be. Other narcissists and sociopaths won’t allow it. Or as Vincent in Collateral said, “We’re a dot in the universe. Who cares?” The Vincent character is a sociopath, not a narcissist. He has no delusions. He wants no one to know who he is. His past is unknown, never mentioned. Which is why he’s so fascinating, and why I wrote a prequel.
According to Lt. Col Dave Grossman, violent video games are partly to blame for Newtown, Sandy Hook, and others like Parkland.
