The Senate Corporate Bailout Package Is a 'Robbery in Progress,' Warn Critics

Psychopath doesn’t mean the same as psychotic.
Definition of psychopath:

The definition of psychopathy can be challenging as depending on the researcher, psychopathy is defined slightly differently and often many psychopathic traits are taken into account. That said, a simple definition of psychopathy is provided by the Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy. Psychopathy is:

  • “A constellation of traits that comprises affective features, interpersonal features, as well as impulsive and antisocial behaviors. The affective features include lack of guilt, empathy, and deep emotional attachments to others; the interpersonal features include narcissism and superficial charm; and the impulsive and antisocial behaviors include dishonesty, manipulativeness, and reckless risk-taking. Although psychopathy is a risk factor for physical aggression, it is by no means synonymous with it. In contrast to individuals with psychotic disorders, most psychopaths are in touch with reality and seemingly rational. Psychopathic individuals are found at elevated rates in prisons and jails, but can be found in community settings as well.”*

Definition of psychotic:

[Psychosis] is a condition that affects the way [your brain] processes information. It causes you to lose touch with reality. You might see, hear, or believe things that aren’t real. Psychosis is a symptom, not an illness. A mental or physical illness, substance abuse, or extreme [stress] or trauma can cause it."

The two words are confusing because each comes from the Greek word, “psyche” which literally means mind. Medicine uses many Greek and Latin terms.

We’d be better off with a psychotic president than a psychopath president. Trump appears like a madman but he’s not psychotic- he’s worse than that. It would be easier if the most we had to worry about was Trump hallucinating during his speeches. That would just be like Trump on acid instead of Trump the monster. Maybe someone should give Trump acid for entertainment. I don’t think anyone would notice his speeches change that much if he dropped acid.

Lets just pretend that there was a very simple little issue that America needed solved, something minuscule and uncomplicated. Lets say, for example, a regulation to prevent poisoning the public water supply. Something that every person in the country requires to maintain good health and safety of their family. The absence of such legislation is a hundred times more dangerous than Al Quaida and ISIS combined, but does it exist…no it does not. At the end of the day, all that is required is an obviously necessary little document to be signed by a majority of politicians. This has not shown to be possible in the USA. Take for example the situation in Flint Michigan, or the preponderance of Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), a deadly chemical related to teflon manufacture in every drinking water supply in the nation, now found in every human in the US. Such obvious and simple requirements are far beyond the capability of the US political system. It seems pretty clear that under such conditions, resolving complex and difficult problems like climate destruction, Pandemics, economic decline, overpopulation, delicate international negotiation, crime and corruption, etc. etc. etc are also far far beyond the ability of American politics to even comprehend much less address. At the end of the day the political players are only as intelligent as the buffoons who vote for them… Oh yes radical change is common, and coming, but it is a destructive force, not the miracle of actual representative democracy to a needy public.

sadly, the neolibs running the DNC do not care that olJoe is a loser. He is THEIR loser and they have too much to lose (their monetary hold over our lives) to allow BERNIE a chance. And really, should 45 win again, the lib elite will still be doing just fine, and they will not have to help us at all except to moan about how the gop have let us down. It boggles.

Boodee, I guarantee you: “45” WILL win again if this site and others don’t do more coverage of the sad state of Biden and the primary!!!
