Stephen didn't get a lot of sleep last weekend, as horrific scenes from last week's violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol played over and again in his head. It now appears clear that the armed mob, who were organized and cheered on by the president and his GOP backers in the House and Senate, came to the nation's capital prepared to commit acts of violence against members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence.

  • What happened at the Capitol is shameful and wrong. It was the far right and the violent people who tend in that direction and they're behaving exactly like the far left and the violent people who tend in that direction have been behaving all year. So as soon as all these left and right extremists can pull their heads out of their asses and recognize that they are the problem with this country those of us in the middle might be able to salvage things but until that happens things are going to get worse and worse. Now I know everyone on here is an extremist themselves and are going to come back to me spouting that this is not true but they know it is look at the truth it's all the same behavior. A truth that was laid plain as day when the representatives of these two groups (Trump and Biden) had their first presidential debate and behaved like petulant little children who needed to have their butts whipped. they're all f****** morons. So please talk to your friends who don't often mention politics because they're in the middle and don't want to get in the fight. Recognize that is where the answers are and stop listening to people who want to divide everyone.

  • The situation that occurred on Jan. 6 was a cartoon event in real life. As a teenager in the Midwestern US I read an implausible tale of incitement to order detailed in the Marvel Comic presentation written by the late Stan Lee and the late Jack Kirby called "The Hate Monger." The situation detailed, in my mind, could never happen in my country. Now, in my middle age I have witness and event orchastrated by an orange-fleshed leader in the White House known as D______ T______, the 45th president of the USA. Watching this event unfolding in our social fabric over the past twenty years -- in some instance longer; live on TV filled my soul with rage. One individual had taken it upon himself to shred the norms and values of the country BE CAUSE HE COULD. This president took it upon himself to deny he lost an election to have a mob of WHITE PEOPLE - not the feared black and brown waves of 'rioters' we had all be programed to expect. Angry because of the lies of T-------, and the election in Georgia of a black man and a young Jew who shifted the power of the Congress occupied by elderly white men and younger scatterings of racist whites and those passing themselves off as white - because they lost an election that T------- attempted to halt when his numbers began to dwindle as the tabulations were counted from the voters who mailed their votes in. The election was 'stolen', according to him - it was this lie he continued to spread until he prepared to leave office. Washington is now an armed camp, a number of our state capitals are surrounded by troops. This is not the country I was raised - as racist as it is, it is my home. 9-11 was a shock to my system. This was a greater shock than the death of George Floyd and all the other black men and women before and since the passage of time. We have met the enemy, and its the white supremicists and the Republican party who are now being exposed to the same threats minorities had endured since the country was founded - on the blood of the Real Americans whose lands were taken from them, and the black who built this county. Yes, the 'Hate Monger' has had his day, but the stench of his actions remain. Break out the Lysol and bleach - and all the Ultraviolet lights we have to sterilize every inch of the People's House. Kick out some of his hangers on who gave tours of the capital to the rioters the day before. That's it, bring it on - I can take it. I am out. Peace.

  • Yeah, Stephen, "a coordinated act of terrorism". You know, we now have video of the Capitol police ALLOWING the 'terrorists' and 'insurrectionists' into the building, right? And these inhumane monsters--such as a former Air Force veteran and a school tberapist-- walking like dopes on a tour between velvet ropes as the police told them where to go. The lamest act of 'terrorism' in history. But I bet your audience isn't interested in these in inconvenient facts. Nope. Nothing to disturb their moral narcissism and unhinged delusions.

  • 17 million guns were sold in the US during 2020. Tribalism and divide is on the rise, no thanks to one of the Elitist's horsemen, called Corporate media. Media helped fan the flames. Government made sure to allow it to happen and watched the useful tools go to town on each other, as they lost what ever tiny fragment was left of their democracy in the process. All politicians world wide, are mere puppets with major backers, living in a reality show. Talk shows are just another layer of disinformation, to mask the truth.

  • A New Alex DeLarge: It is important in the modern age to not simply enjoy media but instead be a skeptical and conceptual analyst. I do not blindly follow or enjoy everything. Psychological health is both expensive and ultra-refined. It's simply not an option for the majority. Psychological floss is rare in people and runs out after time without practice. Treatment, however, is not about psychological health. It's about eliminating the criminal instinct. It is a world filled with both manipulation and unaccepted dark psychology practices. It is one thing to watch the X-Files and read NWO or Project Beta but another thing to become like an episode. A line must be drawn in the psychological arena. What is appropriate to communicate the traditions and what is dangerous? 'No! No! Stop it! Stop it! It's a sin! It's a sin!' -Alex DeLarge Crying About Beethoven Associated With His Treatment, 'A Clockwork Orange' Note* People want the keys to why behavior manifests and it's simply because psychological health is an expensive daily exercise afforded by few. We can at least be hip to Jung, Hillman, Dark Psychology, and Social Neuroscience, Dark Persuasion, Trivium and Rhetoric. (Hint).
