And to wipe out their lobster supply. Sounds Legit. Glad we’re paying for it.
A ridiculously high percentage of Obamacrats appear to suffer from attention-seeking personality disorders. And by “suffer from”, I really mean “make us suffer because of.”
The “victim” form underlies Rachel Dolezal’s antics, including the latest revelation that she sued Howard University in 2002 for discriminating against her because she’s white.
Her lawsuit claimed school officials blocked her appointment to a teaching assistant post, rejected her application for a post-graduate instructorship, denied her scholarship aid while she was a student, and removed some of her artworks from a February 2001 student exhibition because the mostly black Howard University was “permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult” for her whiteness.
Shorter Rachel: “I didn’t get what I wannnnnt so you must be raaaaaaaaaaaaaaacists!”
The courts did not agree and, a few years later, Rachel transitioned herself into a “black” person making a lifetime career out of her “victimhood.”
An article in Psychology Today says, “Excessive attention seeking is not a character flaw. It is a brain wiring response to early developmental trauma caused by neglect.”
Oh. So it’s her mommy and daddy’s fault she’s a serial liar?
Pbblt. I’m sorry, but that just doesn’t fly with me.
Obviously, childhood helps shape a person’s character, but from the age of reason on up, a person’s own choices are what matter most.
My daughter once repeated that self-esteem mantra her generation was steeped in. “Just because he did bad things doesn’t mean he’s a bad person.”
I told her, “That’s only true until you’re seven. After that, you’re capable of knowing right from wrong and the things you do begin to shape the person you are. So, if you consistently do bad things, knowing they are bad and not caring how they hurt people, then you become a bad person.“
Sure, a childhood marked by neglect can leave a person feeling excessively needy. But so too can a perfect childhood leave a person feeling excessively privileged. Either of these conditions could lay the framework for a sinful life of attention-seeking. But they could also lay the framework for a holy and generous life.
- A person who knows how awful it is to feel unloved can become a person who either demands constant approval from everyone OR is deeply empathetic to those who feel the same way.
- A person who knows how wonderful it is to feel loved and nurtured can become a person who either demands that every desire be fulfilled OR is committed to providing the same love and nurture to others.
The real problem with Rachel and the other disordered Obamacrats ruining our nation is not a mental disorder, but a spiritual one.
God calls it sin.
And He sent His only Son to fix it.
All we have to do is ask.
“Mrs. Obama uses her private feelings as evidence of a certain public reality: Because she feels discriminated against, she is in fact being discriminated against. … Just as the elevation of public reason over private feeling always threatens to bury the individual, so the elevation of private experience above disputation threatens to impose upon the community the pathologies of an individual, or group.” – Ian Tuttle
I am reminded of a discussion I had once with an aggrieved teen-ager who announced to me that everybody at school hated her. (For the record, this girl was not one of my daughters.)
I asked her for the specific reason she had come to this conclusion. It turned out that one person had said something mean to her in school that day.
Now, I don’t know if this one person had actually been mean to her. I’ve had many occasions to talk through hurt feelings I’ve experienced or caused, only to find that nothing bad was intended at all.
But even if the other person had been mean on purpose, it did not follow that “everybody at school” felt the same way.
Nor does it follow that Michelle Obama’s personal pathology is proof that we live in AmeriKKKa. You gotta wonder if she’s NOTICED that she’s the wife of the President?! Sheesh.
This is an expansion on Grunt’s post from yesterday. It serves a twofold purpose…. it allows me to display the continuing outrage good people have over this contemptible gaggle of miscreants and it allows me to dodge having to come up with a catchy title for this post. After a couple days I have about a thousand items bookmarked.I’ll try my best to cull some of the better stuff. (If it wasn’t good I wouldn’t bother with it in the first place.)
A VERY expensive getaway:
The First Family’s Valentine’s Day apart cost the taxpayer at least $2.5m as Barack golfed in California while Michelle went on secret ski trip to Aspen
President Barack Obama flew to California for a fundraiser and a speech
He then spent the next three days playing golf at an exclusive resort
At the same time Michelle and Malia and Sasha were skiing in Aspen
Figures show that Air Force One costs $228,288 per hour to run
As a result, the ten-hour return trip to California would cost almost $2.3m
It is estimated that Mrs Obama’s skiing trip cost a further $100,000
With accommodation and car rental, the weekend break would cost $2.5m
I TRULY BELIEVE THEY ENJOY RUBBING THEIR PRIVILEGE IN EVERYBODY’S FACES
Michelle’s Secret Ski Trip Revealed by a Smashup
Promoting a stay-at-home-for-President’s-Day charade, Michelle Tweeted an ‘all you need is love’ Valentine message to her hubby featuring a picture of what appeared to be a homebound Michelle kissing Barack adieu.
Now, three days after the fact, we find out that after sending Dad packing for the weekend, Michelle and the girls quietly boarded an expensive Air Force jet and headed to the Tiehack home of the owners of the Aspen Skiing Co., Jim and Paula Crown.
YOU PROBABLY HADN’T HEARD THIS….THATS WHY I’M HERE
Michelle Obama Plans Spring Break In Japan With Sasha And Malia
According to the Asahi Shimbun, the First Lady and her daughters Sasha and Malia will be traveling to Japan for a visit in March.
The trio will visit Tokyo and Kyoto, according to her schedule.
During her visit to China last March, Michelle Obama explained to a group of students that it was “very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States” with her daughters.
OH,REALLY????? HOWZABOUT SPAIN, ENGLAND, AFRICA, MOST OF THE COUNTRIES IN THE FREE WORLD (FREE FOR THEM,OF COURSE)
“It is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China,” she explained at the time.
The Obamas have never been known to think for a microsecond about the impact of their sporting lives on the public, whether it’s in Hawaii or the continental U.S. or on other continents. This is befitting the de facto royalty that they have become, really. Barack’s golf outings, of which there are many, are legendary for displacing entire islands, towns and villages at the busiest possible times, ensuring that the maximum number of people are deprived of the vacations that they have planned for months – sometimes years. Even the unprecedented habit of spending family Christmases off-continent, in Hawaii, is startlingly expensive, not just for the treasury, but for the hundreds of White House staff forced to work away from their families over the holidays. This Presidents Day weekend is no exception.
As winter refugees flood southern California to hit Disneyland and other entertainment destinations on this precious mid-winter three-day weekend, President Obama is right there in the thick of it with his dozens of flights and hundreds of golf-support vehicles to shut down traffic as far as the eye can see through the light smog.
His wife and daughters, not to be outdone, are in Aspen today on the busiest ski-day of the year. This is a weekend, incidentally, when most Colorado locals avoid skiing altogether because the traffic up the mountain from the tens of thousands of extra out-of-state visitors overwhelms the roads. Add to this the First Lady’s motorcade and all the extra DHS activity, and the family therapists will be busier than ever this year.
It’s funny, though, because Michelle Obama has complained in the past about how she doesn’t have a paying job. The girls attend private schools that are very accommodating to Presidential daughters. She could take the girls skiing in Aspen on any day of the year when there’s snow. Why do it today? That’s a good question; one that will not be asked by any reporters allowed within earshot of these monarchs.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared February 2, 2015 “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas.
He got a lot of thumbs up for honoring a true American hero and a lot of thumbs down for honoring “a murderer & a terrorist & a coward.”
My fave tweet:
It’s a brilliant and honest story that demonstrates the truth of the following:
How do you get conservatives angry? You lie to them.
How do you get liberals angry? You tell them the truth.
Last Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama PRAISED American Sniper:
“[It] reflects those wrenching stories that I’ve heard — the complex journeys that our men and women in uniform endure, the complicated moral decisions they are tasked with every day, the stresses of balancing love of family with a love of country, and the challenges of transitioning back home to their next mission in life. … The vast majority of Americans will have never seen these stories or grasp these issues without portrayals like this.”
American Sniper opened at Baghdad’s Mansour Mall theater earlier this month.
It was pulled after a week, but before that, one Iraqi man named Gaith Mohammed said that it played to full and enthusiastic crowds. “Some people watching were just concentrating, but others were screaming ‘Fuck, shoot him! He has an IED, don’t wait for permission!!’”
THIRD week-end box office record!
American Sniper set a new Super Bowl week-end record and has the highest box office tally for a war movie. It has been nominated for six Oscars, including best picture and best actor.
This is what passes for “foreign policy” under Barack Obama.
