I always like to bring new insights to the blog to get people thinking “more.” To think about things other than the, who’s on first, that the controllers what you to constantly obsess on!!! Sociopaths are a subject I know a little about as the study of human behavior was something which became part of my skill set as an officer in Prison. You quickly learn that you are at an extreme disadvantage when dealing with them as you leave to be decent with compassion and they truly have no clue what that “Feels” like!!! A researcher interviewing a psychopath, a murder, showed him a picture of a frightened face and asked him to identify the emotion.

. He said he didn't know what the emotion was but it was the face people pulled just before he killed them."
Another psychopath interviewed said that to him, killing people was like "squashing bugs."

Now it is easy to find them to interview in Prison as that just breaks up their day but to find them in Politics, in Business, in Law Enforcement is a whole other story. You see that is how this all has to do with every one of us!!!
"Sociopaths love power. They love winning. If you take loving kindness out of the human brain, there's not much left except the will to win." "Which means you'll find a preponderance of them at the top of the tree?"

?" "Yes," The higher you go up the ladder, the greater the number sociopaths you'll find there."
But surely stock-market psychopaths can't be as bad as serial-killer psychopaths??? "Serial killers ruin families." "Corporate, political and religious psychopaths ruin economies. They ruin societies."

They’re the Bernie Madoffs, the Benjamin Netanyahus, the Dominique Strauss-Kahns, and the Hitlers and the Stalins that wreak havoc on entire economies and societies. Or, if they never get that far to the top, they're the impossible bosses, the abusive husbands, the corrupt lawyers and police officers.
If you could climb inside their brains, you would see we aren't all the same. We aren't all good people just trying to do good.

Some of us are psychopaths. And psychopaths are to blame for this brutal, misshapen society. They are the ones who lead us around, who pull our strings and go against our “God given unalienable rights” granted to us by our Constitution!!

They are the ones who destroy our economy, devalue our dollar by the “Trillions,” looted our Treasury and given the money to Goldman-Sachs and the International Bankers. “AND” they are ones who spread murder and bloodshed across the entire planet all the while trying to convince “YOU” this must be done!!!

They have attacked our ships or they have attacked our buildings, they will build a bomb or they are about to use poison gas on their own people.

We know all this because “THEY” said so “AND” of course we know it is all true as “THEY” would never lie to us!!! Why would they do that!! Why would they want to see people die, suffer and be tortured!!! They are people “JUST LIKE US!!!!”

Sounds a little like some of the hypocritical republican senators. Is there an ounce of conviction in any of them?

The update on the status of a fiscal cliff deal is that there really is no update but, Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama did meet over the weekend to at least talk about their differences in the matter.

Both the White House and Boehner’s office declined to describe the meeting, putting out identical statements that said, “This afternoon, the President and Speaker Boehner met at the White House to discuss efforts to resolve the fiscal cliff. We’re not reading out details of the conversation, but the lines of communication remain open.”
