Your post reflects a political bias and not anything substantial.  But such a post also reflects on character and not a willingness to a nonprejudicial discussion.


Come on, Tex you know once you see "cognitive dissonance" the thinking process has ended and the insult phase kicks in.


And you had to get your insult in.


In reality - "rk's" rather peculiar attempts to insult are rather a compliment....

 

Conservative cognitive dissonance - believing that everything about trump is admirable and wonderful - and that all criticism of trump is misguided and therefore automatically invalidated - is recognized by the mental health community as a thought disorder that's related to psychosis...

 

 

Gottfried von Berlichingen said it 500 years ago - now it is entirely appropriate and deserved for trump...

I have a hard time even knowing what he's talking about sometimes!!!  But after looking the definition up, there is no doubt you're correct.

Is this question directed to any of the posters here on these boards OR is it a bit of SELF-REFLECTION?...............@NCtarheel..........your response is a perfect example of what I see a poster do to turn something negative toward the original poster. I have been called guilty of this also. I am willing to debate with good reasoning and good manners if this group could do so. I think that I post and something in your bodies that dislike me so much goes ding- a -ling and you hurry to send something negative toward me. This in some way gives you the satisfaction that you get from coming darn close to being a bully. When I worked with abused women, many times they could learn that this behavior comes from someone with low self-esteem. I am a white, female, Christian conservative. Those of you who dislike this type of human should learn to accept us. We are part of the USA. Now, don't you think I would be petty if I came back at you with what so many of you are angry about? If I did this, I would be making a negative remark about your former black President. Instead of concentrating on his skin, hair, fingers, or wife I have only said I didn't think he was an effective leader and he said, "Uh, Uh" too many times when he spoke. The ball is in you court. You posters can continue with the negative, bully remarks, but keep in mind there is a lot of proof in Epster's post. You are hurting your well being much more than you hurt mine.


Why should anyone accept you for who you are when you refuse to accept anyone else who doesn't agree with you?

 

You have made nothing but negative, insulting posts and wonder why you get that back in return. Maybe if you tried to find something positive to say occassionally you wouldn't get so many negative posts in return.

Out here in the real world - if it can't be proved - claiming that it's true is lying - you know - like liddle donnie does twice as often as he tells the truth...

 

 


So can that sentence be proved?
