Bill - Very effectively he draws a line between just stupid versus stupid and violent. If anyone isn't clear why that matters, we can discuss it some time.

25 Things - Priceless! Low hanging fruit, but priceless!

Michael Moore - It's ironic, isn't it. Bill irritates a number of people with his bluntness and his language and his being so opinionated (Republicans in particular despise him), and yet, he demonstrates family values the GOp can only DREAM of. (And as a result he has more money than he needs and therefore contributes generously to Democrats!)

New Rules - This is kind of off topic, but, from an investigator's point of view, a lying witness can be as informative as a truthful one - it's all in the kind of lies they tell and the way they tell them.

RESIST AND PERSIST !!!

Monologue: I'm glad that Bill is going to the Carolinas to entertain the folks there. That's sweet.

25 Things: #3, 6, 15, are the best, imho.

MM: Very heartfelt conversation. I feel bad about Dr. Ford being persecuted like that, how awful.

New Rules: Yeah, "you can call him, but nobody's home', Bill.

25 Things made me laugh.

Michael Moore: I still contend that the best way to vote is to have a law that requires all citizens, voters must vote.

The GOP would never win another election. Let’s get rid of the Electoral College.

Bill #1: For a truly valuable defense of Brettdick, see: https://www.care2.com/news/member/565542931/4120253
Bill #2: Had difficulty seeing it, but liked the "Melt" comment.
Bill #3: Michael is nothing short of wonderful!
Bill #4: "Malignant Narcissism," is not in the DSM, the construct was created by Dr. Eric Fromm, a holocaust survivor, to describe Hitler, and it fits dumpy. perfectly:
Donald Trump's malignant narcissism is toxic: Psychologist
Much has been written about Trump having narcissistic personality disorder. As critics have pointed out, merely saying a leader is narcissistic is hardly disqualifying. But malignant narcissism is like a malignant tumor: toxic.
Psychoanalyst and Holocaust survivor Erich Fromm, who invented the diagnosis of malignant narcissism, argues that it “lies on the borderline between sanity and insanity.” Otto Kernberg, a psychoanalyst specializing in borderline personalities, defined malignant narcissism as having four components: narcissism, paranoia, antisocial personality and sadism. Trump exhibits all four.
His narcissism is evident in his “grandiose sense of self-importance … without commensurate achievements.” From viewing cable news, he knows "more about ISIS than the generals” and believes that among all human beings on the planet, “I alone can fix it.” His "repeated lying," “disregard for and violation of the rights of others” (Trump University fraud and multiple sexual assault allegations) and “lack of remorse” meet the clinical criteria for anti-social personality. His bizarre conspiracy theories, false sense of victimization, and demonization of the press, minorities and anyone who opposes him are textbook paranoia. Like most sadists, Trump has been a bully since childhood, and his thousands of vicious tweets make him perhaps the most prolific cyber bully in history.

I like Michael Moore. I watch, have purchased, his documentaries. They're all on point, but Sicko is my favorite. I've not seen the new one. I will, probably. But I'm a little tired of him. And I am not sure preaching to the choir is an effective technique, and what he has to say is NOT being heard by anyone but those who already agree with him. It's like Al Gore's climate change documentaries. Somehow I want to make them required viewing for everyone because the science is irrefutable but only those who already know that watch them. Both things are sort of the DFL playbook it seems to me. Ineffective. Though younger voices are emerging that will, I think, in the long run change that. Right now, I'm not happy with any of them.

This - I stole. But with good reason. People keep talking about trump as if narcissism is his greatest failing. It's not. I found a couple years ago that sociopath and psychopath have been combined into one more descriptive definition. Antisocial personality disorder. That's trump. This is what that means, from a Psychology Today blog post, 2014, but it's absolutely true today. ht tps:/ /www. psychologytoday .co m/u s/bl og/wi cked-deeds/20 1401/how-t ell-soci opath-psyc hopath I broke it up in hopes of the url surviving, but I searched (Ixquick, a search engine that does NOT track you) sociopath pyschopath +combined. If anyone wants to find it and can't. The 25th amendment is not the answer, read it, you'll see why.

"Many forensic psychologists, psychiatrists and criminologists use the terms sociopathy and psychopathy interchangeably. Leading experts disagree on whether there are meaningful differences between the two conditions. I contend that there are clear and significant distinctions between them.

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), released by the American Psychiatric Association in 2013, lists both sociopathy and psychopathy under the heading of Antisocial Personality Disorders (ASPD). These disorders share many common behavioral traits which lead to the confusion between them. Key traits that sociopaths and psychopaths have in common, include:

A disregard for laws and social mores
A disregard for the rights of others
A failure to feel remorse or guilt
A tendency to display violent behavior
In addition to their commonalities, sociopaths and psychopaths also have their own unique behavioral characteristics, as well.

Sociopaths tend to be nervous and easily agitated. They are volatile and prone to emotional outbursts, including fits of rage. They are likely to be uneducated and live on the fringes of society, unable to hold down a steady job or stay in one place for very long. It is difficult but not impossible for sociopaths to form attachments with others. Many sociopaths are able to form an attachment to a particular individual or group, although they have no regard for society in general or its rules. In the eyes of others, sociopaths will appear to be very disturbed. Any crimes committed by a sociopath, including murder, will tend to be haphazard, disorganized and spontaneous rather than planned.

Psychopaths, on the other hand, are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative and can easily gain people’s trust. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them, and will appear normal to unsuspecting people. Psychopaths are often well educated and hold steady jobs. Some are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature.

When committing crimes, psychopaths carefully plan out every detail in advance and often have contingency plans in place. Unlike their sociopathic counterparts, psychopathic criminals are cool, calm, and meticulous. Their crimes, whether violent or non-violent, will be highly organized and generally offer few clues for authorities to pursue. Intelligent psychopaths make excellent white-collar criminals and "con artists" due to their calm and charismatic natures.

The cause of psychopathy is different than the cause of sociopathy (1). It is believed that psychopathy is the largely the result of “nature” (genetics) while sociopathy is more likely the result of “nurture” (environment). Psychopathy is related to a physiological defect that results in the underdevelopment of the part of the brain responsible for impulse control and emotions. Sociopathy, on the other hand, is more likely the product of childhood trauma and physical/emotional abuse. Because sociopathy appears to be learned rather than innate, sociopaths are capable of empathy in certain limited circumstances but not in others, and with a few individuals but not others.

Psychopathy is the most dangerous of all antisocial personality disorders because of the way psychopaths dissociate emotionally from their actions, regardless of how terrible those actions may be. Many prolific and notorious serial killers, including the late Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy, and the incarcerated Dennis Rader ("Bind, Torture, Kill" or BTK) are unremorseful psychopaths. Psychopathic killers view their innocent victims as inhuman objects to be tormented and exterminated for their own amusement or even sexual gratification.

Contrary to popular mythology, most serial killers are not mentally ill in either a clinical or legal sense nor are they "evil" geniuses. At least 40 percent of all serial killers are unrepentant psychopaths."
