We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm not sure if it's the same, NJ. This one seems...different. The difference is that with previous derangement syndromes - including Clinton Derangement Syndrome - the person would seem okay until the hated politician's name came up in conversation. Then they would lose it.
With Trump derangement Syndrome, people seem to be doing a lot more of what psychologists call "responding to internal stimuli" (that is what they call crazy people talking to themselves on the street). People are spontaneously and hatefully bringing up Trump is a frequent and spiteful way. This is a self-starting, self-motivated derangement syndrome and people are really into it.
It's also really unpleasant. The other day, out of the blue, a friend said "Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds are no doubt incredibly happy to be missing the Trump Administration". What? Where did that come from? These women are dead, Carrie Fisher was relatively young, please try to have a bit of respect.
The hysterical McCarthyism is something new as well - the constant accusations of treason and invoking The Russians at every turn. It's making me tired of my friends.
It's a con. It's a con that the left has gotten away with hundreds of times in the past 50 years or so. They all show up in front of cameras and accuse, race bait, cry victim, call names and it wears on the national psyche. We forever remember the names and the accusations and all the other horrible things that were said but forget that it was all made up. Just like all the cons we have seen where Muslim women's hijab was pulled off or someone mysteriously heard someone say the "n" word but a hundred cameras and microphones failed to pick it up. This is just part of the con. We enable. Our Rinos benefit from it. The left benefits from it. The common man pays through the nose for it.
Trump may or may not do good things for our country and our citizens but the left wing con man will win and when they do they will take paybacks. The left will gladly destroy America rather than let the deplorables win.
You Know Someone Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)?
Know the signs, spot the symptoms, and save a life.
TURD is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.
Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.
People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.
TURD is caused by the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite.
Research is ongoing, but TURD appears to correlate closely with the following environmental and behavioral factors:
Membership in the Democratic Party
Identifying as a Feminist
Currently enrolled in college, and/or Possession of a Liberal Arts college degree
Living in a densely populated metropolitan area
Massive student debt
Spotty or non-existent work history
Patients with TURD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality.
If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TURD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge, and Make America great again
I think it really is different this time. Trump is a real threat to the house of cards the Left calls reality. Bush wasn't a threat to all the media, academy, Hollywood has created. Trump is calling their bluff, and you can see how frightened and desperate they are. If Trump can show the younger Americans what the US economy can accomplish once unleased, it will be a real education to a lot of people who have been living through Bush, Obama economic doldrums.
