Cognitive Dissonance

A Very Concise Explanation Of Why The Democrats Lost (And Will Keep Losing)

"Think of the arrogance of their mindset - vote for our candidate because she is not good, but less bad than the other fellow, and once again you really have no other choice...

Trump Terrors - A Lesson In Cognitive Dissonance

Civil War II - Fourth Turning Is Intensifying (Part 1)

As we enter the final stretch of this vitriolic, deplorable, venomous, propaganda saturated, deceitful, rigged presidential election spectacle, it becomes painfully obvious this Fourth Turning is careening toward bloodshed, bedlam, confrontation, and civil war.
