    Etymologically narcissism and narcotics have a common origin thousands of years ago. Narcisissus got drunk with self-love so delirious that it killed him. Narcotics are mind altering substances that can be so damaging that they are illegal. Is there anything more narcissistic than terminating life within you as a method of contraception? (NB some terminations are like this. Not all of them. The decision to terminate is not always narcissism.) How is spending money you dont have and thereby crippling future generations with debt anything other narcissim? Some people like to slam Donald Trump as an alleged narcissist. There is...

  • Signaling virtuous victimhood as indicators of Dark Triad personalities.

    -- abstract -- We investigate the consequences and predictors of emitting signals of victimhood and virtue. In our first three studies, we show that the virtuous victim signal can facilitate nonreciprocal resource transfer from others to the signaler. Next, we develop and validate a victim signaling scale that we combine with an established measure of virtue signaling to operationalize the virtuous victim construct. We show that individuals with Dark Triad traits—Machiavellianism, Narcissism, Psychopathy—more frequently signal virtuous victimhood, controlling for demographic and socioeconomic variables that are commonly associated with victimization in Western societies. In Study 5, we show that a...

  • Firms start work on 'freedom passports': Documents allowing people who have tested negative for Covid-19 to enter pubs, schools and workplaces are under development

    Work is being carried out to develop coronavirus freedom 'passports' that will allow those who have tested negative to enter pubs, schools and workplaces. Two firms have been awarded Government contracts for exploratory work on a new app that would allow people to prove they do not have Covid. The Department of Health said no decisions had been made on introducing the passport. The contracts envisage a system under which people are assigned a QR code on their smartphones linking to a digital passport that includes a photo of them. After a Covid test, this would be updated at the...

    New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks ignited a wave of backlash after insulting rural Americans who have no contact with the “expert class.” SNIP “Look at how much more Republicans are affected by conspiracy theories than the Democrats, so it can’t just be the internet, there must be some demand,” Brooks said, pointing out the “two core problems.” “A lot of people in the expert class live in blue cities who are thriving,” he claimed. “And a lot of people left behind in the rural parts of America, they feel threatened economically, culturally, socially and they have no contact...

    I know Nancy Pelosi's white roots have already grown out since her infamous visit to that hair salon. But thanks to Donald Trump bringing it up at every awesome rally, it's not stale news yet! The whole incident would've blown over in a jiffy if she'd had the humility and Erma Bombeckesque sense of humor to say, "Sorry, my bad. I just wanted to look my best for my voters." But no! Nancy herself blew the incident into A Thing by projection, by attempting to gaslight the American voter by blaming the hair salon for setting her up. Basically a...

  • A playbook for combating QAnon

    08/14/2020 7:19:00 AM PDT · by MNDude · 58 replies
    QAnon can no longer be ignored. What internet companies could do to stop its spread. Just describing QAnon — a sprawling, false theory that there is a “deep state” of child-molesting Satanists in charge of powerful institutions — makes me confused. But we can’t ignore QAnon, even if we find the conspiracy bizarre. QAnon supporters are co-opting advocacy efforts in areas such as anti-child sex trafficking, believers are poised to get elected to office and followers are committing violence. Elements of QAnon are popping up everywhere. “I don’t think anyone realized how big it would become,” said Zarine Kharazian, assistant...

    A 17-year-old employee at Sesame Place in Bucks County was punched in the face and required surgery for his injury after a dispute with a park visitor over wearing a mask, police said Monday. Shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday, the employee was working at Captain Cookie’s High C’s Adventure ride when he was attacked by a male patron who was accompanied by a female, said Detective Lt. Steve Forman of the Middletown Township Police Department. The employee had encountered the pair earlier and had reminded them that they were required to wear masks while in the park. When the male...
  • Biden slams Trump for promoting false COVID-19 claims from 'crazy woman

    Joe Biden on Wednesday excoriated President Trump for promoting on Twitter the dubious claims of Dr. Stella Immanuel, the Houston doctor who’s claimed to have effectively treated hundreds of COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine, who the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee called a “crazy woman.” In a virtual event with the UnidosUS Action Fund, a nonprofit advocating for Latino political power, Biden was asked to respond to Trump having repeatedly pushed for public schools to reopen this fall without putting into place effective measures to keep teachers and students safe. Biden replied that Trump should “stop tweeting and start doing something about...

    According to video shot at the center, teenagers, none of whom appear to be wearing masks, begin knocking items off counters and throwing items behind the counter. One of the girls involved is seen pulling the plastic screen, which is used as part of COVID-19 safety policy updates, from the counter and throwing it at staff. In the same video, she picks up a metal stand and throws it. She also later spit on an employee, witnesses claimed.

    Love and Brandon Gwaltney's gender reveal party started out like any other. The couple from Akron, Ohio, wore matching outfits of pink and blue. There was a cake decorated with pink and blue sprinkles and a big question mark on top. And then, of course, there was the big box that typically contains the pink or blue balloons that serve to reveal the gender of their baby. But as they counted down to one, what popped out were balloons of yellow, white, purple and black -- the colors of the nonbinary flag -- followed by their 17-year-old child, coming out...

    Once upon a time in Realville, there were people who rationally evaluated evidence, avoided using confusing language, and reached conclusions that made sense. Sorry. Never happened. Realville is as fictional as Garrison Keillor’s Lake Wobegon, where “all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." This leaves us with a problem because many people won’t look at the evidence. They react emotionally, and never seem to be concerned about confusing language. They’ve forgotten that “for every complex problem, there’s an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” (H.L. Mencken)Today we are inundated...

    NASCAR’s only black driver Bubba Wallace on Monday denounced “HATE from the POTUS” after President Trump suggested that Wallace apologize for saying he was the victim of a hate crime. Wallace’s teammates this year reported an apparent noose in his garage stall that the FBI later determined was not a hate crime and had been in place there since October 2019. He was not the source of the original claim. Wallace’s response to Trump came in a tweeted statement that he addressed to “the next generation and little ones following my foot steps.”

    On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ordered the removal from the Capitol Building of four portraits of former Democratic House speakers who had ties to the Confederacy. Robert Hunter of Virginia, James Orr of South Carolina, Howell Cobb and Charles Crisp of Georgia. The removal of the portraits is the latest meaningless gesture from the speaker and Democrats following the death of George Floyd. Pelosi sent a letter to House Clerk Cheryl Johnson ordering the removal of the four portraits in observance of Juneteenth, an unofficial holiday commemorating the Republican's emancipation of the last slaves in the Confederacy....
