The Pathology of Liberalism

Major HT to Let Freedom Reign

This may explain why SillyS**ts still doesn't get why Empress Nancy is a living, breathing, double-standard espousing, hyprocrite:

From the inception of psychology over 100 years ago, conditions such as autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, narcissism and Tourette’s syndrome were thought to be psychological in origin – and that with enough therapy, enough blaming inadequate parenting, enough talk, enough delving into “feelings,” the sufferer could be treated successfully or even cured.

We now know – thanks to tools like PET scans, MRIs, and pharmaceutical advances – that these condition are all biological in nature, more receptive to medications, augmented with behavioral techniques, than to any of the other “therapies” that were inflicted so ineffectually on millions of people over the past many decades.

The scans, in fact, have revealed the specific areas of the brain that give rise to anger, revenge, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, stuttering, pathological lying, cheating, manipulation, obsessive-compulsive behavior, depressive disorders, even cravings for chocolate!

How do we know these conditions are biological? Because in addition to the fact that medications have treated these mental disorders successfully (for example, Haldol for psychoses, lithium for bipolar disorder, Wellbutrin for depression, and Xanax for anxiety), they have identical symptoms (albeit some more severe than others) in people who are raised in luxury high-rises in Buenos Aires, slums in Los Angeles, kibbutzim in Israel, huts in rain forests, and penthouses in Manhattan. And also in people raised in both happy and dysfunctional homes.

What we also understand is that most intractable mental conditions seem to be genetically driven, rooted in centers of the brain that are still not fully understood. Perhaps this is why political affiliation – with exceptions, of course – seems to run in families.

Read the rest…


A great excerpt here:

"Liberals, like children, live in a world of utopian dreaminess, clinging to a narrow, circumscribed reality and believing that if everyone would just be nice to each other – let’s talk, let’s chat – all the noisy death threats and pesky suicide bombings would go away, and all those grumpy grownups in the current administration would see the light."

And you still haven't explained how the story you cited in your previous post supported your claim that Nancy Pelosi is guilty of a Double Standard, as you initially implied with your post title, citation and follow up point...

...or that she's a hypocrite. Instead, you throw an insult at me and in this new post, take another jab at me, still don't back up your previous claim about Nancy Pelosi, and then for whatever reason, cite an article that has nothing to do with you or I, provides no support to your argument about Nancy Pelosi, and serve otherwise simply to redirect away from that fact.

The really ironic part if that you're now acting as if you've won some kind of argument and are now wiping your hands together in glory when you still have failed to even provide a slightly sensible explanation for your previous post when asked about it.

That's like me saying "Bush lied, people died" and then when you ask me to back that claim up, I say "Look over there!" and then as cover, insult you and then cite an article about Bill Frist and Terri Schiavo and give a "H/T" out to someone.

I'll give you credit on this, though, since it's so fitting here:

"Stating the Obvious to the Oblivious."
