My relationships with my adult children are the most valuable things in my life. Nothing is more important to me, and I have worked for decades to make sure they are warm, reciprocal, and healthy. If mental illness and the cynical scams of Rightwing grifters were to steal them, and turn them into someone capable of this, I can't imagine a greater pain.

The most terrifying part of it all is that it's clear that those who invent the conspiracies, and most of those who promote them, don't actually believe them. Sociopaths who don't care how much harm they do as long as it gets them a few bucks, or a little fame or power. Pure evil.

It's interesting to me that whatever McGann Jr.'s mental issues are, he obviously knew killing his father was wrong. It's not like he waited for the cops to claim he killed a clone or a zombie or something, so he didn't think his beliefs shielded him from blame.

That Mohn dude is obviously not in touch with consensus reality though.

Ta, Robyn. Are we targets because we're vaccinated? I really don't care because I don't relish dying of a preventable illness. Or anything else, for that matter, but eventually old age will get me.

This is disturbing. Especially the guy that decapitated his father just because he had worked as a federal employee. Is somebody at USDA doing some traitorous soil surveys?

The only good news here is that the Nobel prize committess now have excellent reason to remove him from the short lists for the Physics, Medicine and Peace prizes.

I urge them to do this without delay.

You left out the incident where a RWNJ shot and killed 3 people at a Planned Parenthood, a couple of days after a Republican convention where Carly Fiorina was babbling about "aborted babby parts being sold on the internet." The loon was babbling about that "issue" when he was arrested for murdering 3 people.

I studied abnormal psychology, case studies of these sociopaths would fill volumes.

My ex-temporary housemate believes that if he got vaccinated against COVID, it would violate the Born-Again Contract he signed with Jesus, and end all hope of his salvation. I asked him why, then, he was well known at work before the pandemic for boasting of his Flu vaccination every year, and he replied "That's different [𝘰𝘧 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘦 𝘩𝘦 𝘥𝘪𝘥], because the Flu vaccine was not invented by Chinese communists and does not contain a magnetic tracking 5G chip" [𝘋𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘪𝘤 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴, '𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘯𝘦]. Meanwhile, his cell phone hardly ever leaves his hand and is never turned off, so if the Satanic Freemason Illuminati Zionists Communists want to track his every move, he's making it very easy for them.

Jesus is asking for a written contract now?

Just as well that he does that too!

Look at the people who he is signing a contract with! Do you think they're gonna honor a mere VERBAL AGREEMENT? Fat chance that is going to happen. Nope you cannot trust the word of any christian! And Jesus knows that!

Funny how all the mentally unbalanced people seem to be on the right side of the aisle, huh?

We on the left have our share. Difference is, ours use placards instead of weapons.

From that MSNBC interview:

Maybe one day, one of these guys will turn out to have led a successful life, with fulfilling careers and great family and other relationships. But that day never seems to come.

Trumpian stochastic terrorism.

Pure and Simple.

Trump revs up the cult and does not take personal responsibility at all.

He has never taken responsibility, does not take responsibility, and will not willingly take responsibility in the future for anything that he has done or will do.

AND that folks is the person that MAGAts admire and want to be like.

Republicans are a threat to Democracy and this country. They are each free to denounce their Republican affiliation and choose a different one.

How far does this have to go before the GOP is put on the terrorist watch list?

From my time in the world of stimulant abusers I can tell you that they really, really do not.
