It doesn't take a behavioral psychologist to figure that one out. Farmers & ranchers and communists have been doing that forever.

I’m reminded of the scene from ‘Crocodile Dundee’ where he says hello to all the people as they walk by and they…well, just walk by.
There are great people everywhere, but in a crowded place like NYC, you’d where yourself out noddin’ and sayin’ ‘howdy’ to everyone you walk past.
However, with all the hustle and bustle you learn to tune things out. You don’t look strangers in the eye because they might hit you up for a smoke or for some change, so you have the reputation of ignoring people.
This happens in every big city. Big cities make you hard. In the 30′s the early Progressives railed against cities. Their vision of the future was small areas of ‘x’ amount of people with open spaces to recreate, much like the suburbs. However, they thought the school should be the center the town was built around, not the church.
The modern progressive has scrapped that idea in favor of cities because it’s easier to control a population completely reliant on the government for food, water, transportation and protection.

Relax everyone! No need to panic! The mayor cordoned off an area for people to let off a little steam…she just figured she wouldn’t tell anybody this time because of all the flak she got last time.

Actually, I receive many rewards in this life as well.
What you call ‘good luck’, I call a ‘blessing’.

It’ll never pass – he claims it is ‘common sense’. The only thing that has any hope of passing has to be described as ‘fair’, ‘equal’, or ‘anti-discrimination’…

Slippery slope? What slippery slope?
I guess we’re going to find out if all of those ‘quaint, old rules’ that societies have put into place over the millennia actually serve a purpose…unfortunately I have to go along for the ride.

True! I slipped into fantasyland for a minute and forgot the elections are rigged.

If Jeb, Rubio, Perry, Huckabee, or any of the other tepid Republicans get the nomination, this country will finally take SOY’s advice and vote third party.
This would ensure the D’s win, but it will finally destroy the Republican party.
We will have a rough time for the following four years, but we will rise from the ashes.
There will be no rise. America is like an elk shot through the heart by a high powered rifle...it will still run around for a while, but it is already dead...it just doesn't know it yet.
I'm with you!
Let Hillary win. Maybe the GOP will get a clue.
I already think the republicans will lose the senate in 2016, and they should.
and where do you reside?
4thuth……I was born and raised in the US of A….and I have spent the last half century watch America commit slow suicide, (with a brief repose in the 80s) but Saint Anthony and the rest of what is supposed to be a “supreme court” just fired the shot that will bring down the elk. Look around you, do you think this current generation possesses the Constitutional knowledge, the cultural pride or patriotic heart become a Phoenix?
Marriage is dead, and by extension so is the family
We no longer even accept the differences of the sexes
Perversion is praised and patriotic pride is looked down upon
You have open borders with no one having the will to close them
The Constitution has been abandoned and you are now governed by men – not laws
People are being publicly lynched simply for not being PC
You have a massive government with unheard of debt
There are not two parties anymore just one…the ruling party in Washington
Our enemies have been emboldened through our weakness, do you think that will change?
Sorry, I wish it were different…but alas it isn’t.

Thanks!! I love that movie!

I actually almost feel pity toward Hillary.
She has been used by the NWO her whole life…promised to be made rich and powerful if only she would bow out of the election to let BO be president, stay in a sham marriage to protect Bill, give favors in exchange for charitable donations, etc.
In the end, the promises made were false, the riches were a pittance, and her power sterile.
Like any deal made with devil, pain, emptiness, and loneliness are the only things received in return.
I will save East some time... LOL
Thanks!! I love that movie!

J-mo is spot on!
It is a contrived deception campaign waged against PP…what sting operation isn’t?
In this modern society, where every movement is tracked, every keystroke recorded, and every comment saved, those whose (once) private life don’t reflect the image implied by their public life will be exposed as the hypocrites they are.
This will upset and disappointment many due to the heavy emotional investment they have in their leaders and institutions. This may even turn into rage against those who expose it.
Mark my words, the right will not start the fight (as much as the left is accusing them of wanting to), the left will snap because their pretty puppy dog illusion of life will be shown to be false. They won’t blame their leaders for failing them – they will blame those that ruined their dream by waking them up.

Good for them!
However, since those in control never let a good crisis go to waste, Californians have now let the government know what their monthly allotment should be.

They can always revise the figures downward in a couple of months…the important thing is the numbers are out and they support the narrative.
Oh, sorry, my bad, I thought this was a story on the economy!

She dodged the question because: A) She didn’t want to offend Bernie’s followers, B) She doesn’t know, or C) There is no difference.
Of course, those that know, know there is no difference…so no answer was the best answer.
Actually, I think it shows how far removed we are from being able to recognize ‘honest talk’ if we think ‘honest talk’ needs to mimic reality TV.
Somehow I can’t picture Hayek or Friedman acting like Trump.
We used to reach for high ideals…
I spoke with you in truth and honesty and you got all pissed and angry... how long ago was that ?, and I just asked you a simple question on a recent story, and your reply was that I was unworthy of a reply. The story is gone now ...so I'll do this again ... my apologies for my offence, except for my honesty and scriptural truth. Honest talk does not always agree.
"better the rebuke of a friend" ...etc ..

I’ll second that.
I gave him a ‘thumbs up’ just to counteract the -1 he had showing.
Good job zappa!

That’s why I could never be s libertarian, no ethics.

That the mantra of “we care for (fill in the blank – women’s rights, gay rights, the middle class, black lives, transparency, etc), will be shown to be false.
The problem is, the ‘grassroots’ people who actually DO care about these issues have so much emotional investment in this – not to mention that they have been completely duped that ‘we’ don’t – that they may never believe it.
