Top 12 Reasons To Vote Democratic

August 28, 2012

Top 12 Reasons To Vote Democratic

Psychopathology can be defined as ways in which individuals behave that are chronically self-defeating or self-injurious. Similarly, behavior that does not increase the likelihood of reaching ones cherished goals can be defined as self-defeating, self-injurious or irrational. Also, focusing only on short-term goals to the exclusion of important long-term goals is irrational behavior.

I have been perplexed by the various odd, even bizarre, American-Culture-defeating and damaging initiatives spun, in rapid-fire sequence by the Democratic Party over the past four years. How could a political party be so irrational?

I have concluded that the Democratic Party is specifically appealing to the increasing percent of individuals within our population that are chronically self-defeating and self-injurious. The Democratic Party has an impulse control disorder in that they will do anything to retain power in the immediate future, with no regard to the deferred–long-ranged– consequences of their actions.

As the wise old saying goes: “Birds of a feather flock together”.

The Democratic Party, at this point in its evolution, is a largely psychologically disordered entity that appeals to a largely psychologically disordered electorate. It does this by enabling and positively reinforcing these individual’s psychologically disordered behavior patterns, in return for their votes. 

The Democrats are able to get away with this because the immediate culturally debilitating consequences of their actions are very difficult to detect. However the long-rage consequences, when they arrive, are as clear and painful as they are debilitating.

As a registered Republican, it pains me to know that many in the Republican Party have also fallen into this aberrant behavioral trap

America had better wake-up to its own psychopathology before it is too late.

As a Professor Emeritus of Psychologist (36 years) and a still practicing cognitive behavior therapist of  nearly 40 years; This is the way I see it.

Thanks to John Plume for sending me the following grim and weirdly humorous list of Democratic actions, that are self-defeating and self-injurious to all Americans.

Top 12 Reasons to Vote Democrat

1. I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.
2. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a   gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of   gas at 15% isn’t.
3. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job   of spending the money I earn than I would. 
4. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it. 
5. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and  I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. 
6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius. 
7. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive. 
8. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it. 
9. I voted Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.
10. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
11. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions for their oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.
12. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my @#*, it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.
 
 

The Most Self-Defeating Culture: America

August 27, 2012

The Most Self-Defeating Culture: America

SAYING AND DOING THINGS THAT MAKE US FEEL LOVING,  CARING, COMPASSIONATE, NOBLE AND NEEDED CAN FREQUENTLY BE DAMAGING TO ALL CONCERNED.  THE FOLLOWING FOUR PROPOSITIONS WILL CLARIFY MY MEANING.

1.   THE PARENT WHO GOES TOO FAR IN LOVING, PROTECTING, AND DOING FOR THEIR CHILD IS LIKELY TO REAR AN INDIVIDUAL THAT IS, SELF-CENTERED, ANXIOUS, FEARFUL, DEPENDENT, AND HELPLESS. THERE ARE OTHER POSSIBLE OUTCOMES, TO BE SURE…BUT NONE OF THEM ARE VERY GOOD.

2.   THE NATION THAT PROVIDES ITS IRRESPONSIBLY UNEMPLOYED, DESTITUTE, AND OVERLY-FERTILE CITIZENS WITH FREE MONEY, FOOD, CHILD CARE, TRANSPORTATION, COMMUNICATION, HOUSING, MEDICAL CARE, AND ENTERTAINMENT WILL RAISE A RAPIDLY INCREASING PERCENT OF THE POPULATION WHO ARE AS DESCRIBED IN PROPOSITION # 1.

3.   THOSE NATIONS THAT OVER-PROTECT OTHER CULTURES BY SPENDING THEIR OWN RESOURCES TO SAVE THEM FROM THE PAIN OF FAMINES, PLAGUES, OVERPOPULATION, AND WARS CAN ACTUALLY RETARD THEIR DEVELOPMENT AND INCREASE THEIR LONG RANGE SUFFERING.  ALL CULTURES MUST LEARN TO RESPOND INDEPENDENTLY TO THE IMMEDIATE CONDITIONS THAT THREATEN THEM OR THEY WILL PERISH.  TO OVERPROTECT CULTURES FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR OWN ACTIONS HAS THE SAME PREDICTABLE EFFECTS AS THE OVER-PROTECTION OF CHILDREN.

4.   CULTURES LIVE IN A DARWINIAN, NATURALLY SELECTING WORLD, AS DO INDIVIDUAL ORGANISMS WITHIN ALL SPECIES.  THE FEEL-GOOD CONCEPT OF A “WORLD CULTURE” MUST ACCOMMODATE THAT FACT.  CULTURES THAT ARE CURRENTLY “FIT” (IN THE EVOLUTIONARY SENSE) CAN DESTROY THEMSELVES BY SQUANDERING THEIR OWN PRECIOUS AND DWINDLING RESOURCES TO TEACH OTHER CULTURES TO ALSO BE HELPLESSLY BLIND TO THE IMMEDIATE CONTINGENCIES OF THEIR OWN SURVIVAL.

THE CLEAREST SINGLE PROTOTYPE OF ALL FOUR OF THESE LEVELS OF MALADAPTIVE AND SELF-DEFEATING BEHAVIOR IS THAT CULTURE WHICH IS CURRENTLY NAMED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

SUCH A CULTURAL ORGANISM CANNOT LONG SURVIVE.

What Is The Truth About America’s Oil Supplies?

August 26, 2012

What Is The Truth About America’s Oil Supplies?

I would be very surprised if you learned the truth about America’s oil supplies from me. The same goes for global warming. These are not my fields of expertise.

The “experts” don’t agree on such matters and the battle lines are drawn. With regard to oil, it is clear that if we do not have ever-increasing supplies for an ever-expanding American and world population (at least in the short-run), there will be local and global hell to pay.

Given that there is a finite supply of fossil fuels available on planet earth, there will in fact be hell to pay someday. Just when that day arrives is the issue and I doubt that anyone can tell us that.

Can you imagine a modern society under conditions of very scarce and prohibitively expensive energy supplies? If you will think about it for just a few minutes, you will become very uncomfortable…particularly when you consider that all of the old agrarian, pre-industrial, pre-information technology age self-maintenance skills are gone…or at least very rare.

Take some time to read and consider the following two items. You need information on this topic, though it will not be comforting.

Remember: The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.

The first source of information is pro-oil development in nature, and it promises heaven-on-earth in oil.

The second opinion is from my friend, Darrel Bostow, Ph.D., who has studied the world’s energy dilemma and its likely effects upon civilization for many years. Rather than simply “admiring the problem” (as he puts it), or just talking about it, he has moved to a farm and is developing a largely,refined-energy-independent life-style.

Darrel argues that if we do not prepare adequately, we will be in for an inevitable world-of-hurt when the increasingly difficult-to-retrieve energy supplies become so costly as to become unaffordable. He warns that we should expect major social/cultural upheaval when this occurs.

I have tried to educate myself regarding these issues.  From all that I have learned, Darrel’s perspective is spot on.

The only question that remains for me, is exactly when the economics of energy  production will crush the status quo developmental trajectories of civilization. I will venture a guess that is will come gradually, like the infirmities of age…slowly dibilitating and eventually incapacitating as we sadly habituate to the process.

Of course I could be wrong about such matters, after-all, I’m only a psychologist, etc.,etc,….

Please read the following and see what you think!

OIL – You  better be sitting down when you read  this  !!!!!!
As you may  know, Cruz Construction started a division in  North Dakota  Just 6 months ago.
They sent  every Kenworth (9 trucks) we had here in Alaska to North Dakota  And several drivers.
They  just bought two new Kenworth’s to add to that  fleet; one being a tri- Drive tractor and a new  65 ton lowboy to go with it.
They also  bought two new cranes (one crawler & one  rubber tired) for that Division.
Dave  Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last  6 months in ND than Cruz Construction moved in  Alaska in the last 6 years.
Williston is  like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40  man camps Down there since there are no rooms  available.
Unemployment in ND is the  lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent last I Checked.
See anything in the national  news about how the oil industry is fueling North  Dakota ‘s economy?
Here’s an  astonishing read. Important and verifiable  information:
About 6  months ago, the writer was watching a news  program on oil and one Of the Forbes Bros. Was  the guest.
The host  said to Forbes, “I am going to ask you a direct  question and I Would like a direct answer;
How much oil  does the U.S. Have in the ground?” Forbes did  not miss a Beat, he said, “more than all the  Middle East put  together..”
The U. S..  Geological Service issued a report in April 2008  that only Scientists and oil men knew was  coming, but man was it big.
It was a  revised report (hadn’t been updated since 1995)  on how much oil Was in this area of the western  2/3 of North Dakota ,
Western South  Dakota , and extreme eastern  Montana ..
Check THIS  out:
The Bakken is the largest  domestic oil discovery since Alaska ‘s Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to
Eliminate  all American dependence on foreign oil. The  Energy Information Administration (EIA)  estimates
It at 503 billion barrels. Even  if just 10% of the oil is recoverable( 5 Billion  barrels), at $107 a barrel,
We’re looking  at a resource base worth more than $5.3  trillion.
“When I first briefed  legislators on this, you could practically see Their jaws hit the floor.
They had no  idea..” says Terry Johnson, the Montana    Legislature’s Financial analyst.
“This  sizable find is now the highest-producing  onshore oil field found In the past 56  years,”  reportsThe Pittsburgh Post  Gazette.
It’s a  formation known as the Williston Basin , but is  more commonly Referred to as the  ‘Bakken.’
It stretches from Northern  Montana, through North Dakota and into  Canada ..
For years, U. S. Oil exploration  has been considered a dead end.
Even the  ‘Big Oil’ companies gave up searching for major  oil wells Decades ago.
However, a recent  technological breakthrough has opened up the  Bakken’s Massive reserves,
And we now  have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And  because this is Light, sweet oil,
Those  billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16  PER BARREL !!!!!!
That’s enough crude to  fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years Straight.
And if THAT didn’t throw you on  the floor, then this next one should – Because  it’s from 2006 !!!!!!
U.. S. Oil  Discovery – Largest Reserve in the  World
Stansberry  Report Online –  4/20/2006
Hidden  1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky  Mountains lies the Largest untapped oil reserve  in the world.
It is more than 2 TRILLION  barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush Mandated its extraction.
In three and a  half years of high oil prices none has been  extracted.
With this motherload of oil  why are we still fighting over off-shore Drilling?
They  reported this stunning news:
We have more  oil inside our borders, than all the other  proven reserves On earth.
Here are the  official estimates:
8 times as  much oil as Saudi Arabia
18 times as much  oil as Iraq
21 times as much oil as  Kuwait
22 times as much oil as  Iran
500 times as much oil as  Yemen
And it’s all  right here in the Western United States    !!!!!!
HOW can  this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this?  Because the Environmentalists and others have  blocked all efforts to help America become Independent of foreign oil! Again, we are  letting a small group of people dictate our  lives and our economy. WHY?
James Bartis,  lead researcher with the study says we’ve got  more oil in this very compact area than the  entire Middle East, more than 2 TRILLION barrels  untapped.. That’s more  than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in  the world today, reports The Denver    Post.
Don’t  think ‘OPEC’ will drop its price even with this  find? Think again! It’s all about the  competitive marketplace, it has to.
Think OPEC  just might be funding the  environmentalists?
Got your  attention yet? Now, while you’re thinking about  it, do this:
Pass this  along. If you don’t take a little time to do  this, then you should stifle yourself the next  time you complain  about gas prices,
by doing NOTHING, you forfeit  your right to complain.
Now I just  wonder what would happen in this country if  every one of you sent this to every one in your  address book.By the way,  this can be verified. Check it out at the link  below !!!!!!
http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911 
Cruz  Construction: http://www.cruzconstruct.com/services.php Version: 10.0.1411 / Virus Database: 2092/4033 – Release Date: 11/22/11
The following is Darrel Bostow’s succinct reaction to the preceding article.
Read the book “The End of Growth” by Heinberg.  Read every page and word. He isn’t God, but he is the most articulate and level-headed writer I have found about all of this.  He is an outsider, not a member of government, nor the energy industry. 
 
What you forwarded to me is profoundly biased in favor of commerce and continued growth.  A rosy picture not taking into account many things.  The Bakken reserves are two miles underground and are of relatively poor quality. There is no infrastructure for shipping the oil.   This oil is a long way off. The “tremendous reserves” elsewhere in the country are not “sweet crude” but dirty stuff.  We have picked the low hanging fruit.   In the 1930s we got 100 barrels of oil for every 1 we used to get it.  That ratio is now down to 14 to 1 and falling every year.  One day we will reach 1 barrel to get 1 barrel and we will still have “lots of oil.” The issue is not the amount of oil, but where it is and the energy necessary to get it.  (I share oil rights with relatives on land near Williston and none of us have been approached about drilling yes, BTW.)
 
Read the counter side of this story by getting THE END OF GROWTH.  He has fewer contingencies inducing him to present a biased position.
Best,
Darrel

She Shoots The Bad Guy!

She Shoots The Bad Guy!

People, this is the way it is supposed to work.

The lady is sleeping in her home with her two young daughters. She hears a loud noise as an intruder breaks into her home. She tells her girls to arm themselves with whatever is at hand and then she confronts the intruder with her gun.

The intruder ceases his intrusion….

Way to go Mom!

Enjoy this good American Second Amendment outcome!

Kill the Crackers!

Kill the Crackers!

Reality will set you free, but first it will make you miserable!

I am asking you to do something that you will find most unpleasant: And that is an understatement.

The New Black Panther’s appear to be recruiting, organizing and gearing up for a civil war in America. Oddly, we do not hear a word about this from our Federal Government. Perhaps this is out of fear of sparking that civil war.

But that is a very positive construction of the facts, a construction that does not fit with the vast majority of the decisions made by the Obama administration. These decisions clearly and consistently move in the direction of destroying America.

Brace yourself and then go to the second video in the article below and force yourself to watch it to the very end.

P.S., And, yes, we  also need to beware of the America’s white racist groups!

Targeted By A Mass Killer? Run, Hide, Fight!

August 18, 2012

Targeted By A Mass Killer? Run, Hide, Fight!

Mass killings are a strong indication of the deteriorating health of our American Socioculture. 

Educated folks often argue that mass shootings by deranged individuals are not new. They argue that what is new is the intensified news coverage that artificially inflates the viewer’s estimates of the probability and danger of such events to them personally. In psychology, we call this phenomenon the Availability Heuristic.

I think the increase in rates of occurrence are real, driven by increasing rates of untreated severe mental illness; broken families; abandoned, neglected, and abused children; the great dearth of financial and employment opportunities; and the terrible strain that our unending wars have placed upon our individuals and families.

I would also be remiss not to mention the loss of God’s precepts and rules for moral and ethical behavior that America has stupidly expunged from public life.

Whatever the causes, do not look for improvement in the rate of these horrible events anytime soon.

In Boy Scouts (what a marvelous example of traditional American culture that was–and still is!) we were taught to always “Be Prepared!”

I am not interested in spreading hysterics, just a cold and hard assessment of what anyone should do if they are ever caught in such a horrifying situation.

Learn the following and teach it to your loved ones!
