  2. From Google+ Special bonus for conspiracy freaks: Day 125 - Hillary's Henchmen, Tracking Your Assets, Part 2
  3. You can't make this up... Some people are just clueless. Michael
  4. Crisis actors! A warning? Lol, that's funny. Depending on your point of view, it can be funny peculiar or funny sad. What can happen is you being put under moderation, limited in your daily posts, or otherwise confined or disciplined. I'd say it is best to figure out just what is the trolling behaviour -- get a bead on it -- and scrupulously avoid the defined behaviour. Sometimes, if there are enough valid complaints about a topic, Michael sends an offending OT to the Garbage Pile. I don't know what intervention is looming if you do not change your bad-for-the-forum behaviour. Michael is normally better than this, in the sense of being able to articulate clearly what an offence is ...
  5. He's baaaaack... Michael
  6. Today
  7. For later readers, this meme is about the blunder of announcing the wrong winning movie in the 2017 Academy Awards. Michael

  9. A warning? Lol, that's funny. When you actually take the time to look at that video you'll see it has nothing to do with Trump being a narcissist or sociopath, which I very clearly stated in the original post. When you do, get back to me.
  10. For the reader, these two posts reference something that got moved to the Garbage Pile here. Tony's post is a bit of collateral damage. Sorry about that... (btw - The documentary that got moved has been posted to OL at least two times in the past. Probably more.) Michael
  11. Trump is not a sociopath. That video had nothing to do with him being a narcissist or sociopath. Like I said, the title was clickbait but the video was a good documentary with the title, "Trump - What's the Deal" from 1991.
  12. Yesterday
  13. "A True Narcissist Sociopath". Nah, I don't think so. I made something of a research into both types several years ago. Trump doesn't quite fit the bill, but anybody in our "Humble Businessman with a Social Conscience" age who is loud and brash in his financial dealings has been rendered unpalatable by dripping anti-capitalist sentiment. Go back to 19C USA, by today's standards every tycoon then would be 'narcissistic'. It's the "self-less" type who dazzles you with charm, you more want to look out for and avoid. Ironic that, his accusers who've been taken out of the warm spot light are closer to narcissists than Trump. They have lost their "Narcissistic Supply".
  14. As an addition to that last post, if anyone wants to look into the emotions further, I came across this on Rush Limbaugh after I had posted his advice above. The Combination of Hatred and Victimhood Is Killing the Democrats It's an excellent analysis. Michael
  15. I've moved this to where it belongs, in the Garbage Pile. Michael
  16. Korben, I'm not going to do any more pissing contests. If you want to post anti-Trump stuff, OK. If you want to be sassy, OK. If you want to disrespect OL readers by trolling behavior, I'm going to have to intervene. This is a warning. Michael
  17. Gonna take a guess that you didn't watch the video. But I agree that the OL readers are not idiots, they can watch the video and use their independent judgment, unclouded by Trump Worship. Enjoy!
  18. This one is for OL readers in general who are reading this thread. Here's the deal: Life is good. Fake news is bad. And that is much truer than it seems. Fake news will bring you down. Their emotional tone is non-stop hatred, victimization, self-pity and attempts at gotcha shaming. When you wallow in material that is soaked in that tone long enough, even if you don't feel that way yourself, you start getting irritated and wound up inside. Rush Limbaugh has some great advice on this score: If You’re Gonna Watch the Drive-By Media, Don’t Take It Seriously From the article: That's profound advice, even for me. I'm going to see if it's possible for me to look at happier stuff for a few days. But I'm probably going to fail miserably... Michael
  19. Korben, Tony Schwartz? Really? You're going to start presenting stuff that's been discussed over and over on OL during the election as if it's new? Dayaamm! That's a lot of hate... I mean, OL readers are not idiots... Michael
  20. So how did Trump build those 'buildings that don't fall down'? This 1991 Documentary, "Donald Trump - What's the Deal," provides some illumination. The Youtube title is clickbait, but the documentary itself is the above title. And guess who appears throughout the video multiple times? None other than Tony Schwartz. Enjoy!
  21. Merlin and William, Thank you both for the link. Stephen Boydstun's opening post gives the date of Teresa's death as September 6, 2016, but doesn't say the cause. I hope it wasn't some horrid protracted illness. So sad that she's gone, and at only age 60. I can imagine her filling the bill of the Wise Old Woman archetype if she'd lived into her 90s. Ellen
  22. When I log in at RebirthofReason.com, that is the page returned. She was a lovely woman in many ways, and was quite kind to me. She could laugh at me and laugh with me. Here is the RoR thread started by Stephen Boydstun, Ellen: http://rebirthofreason.com/Forum/GeneralForum/2077.shtml

  24. William, I see you keep trying, but it just ain't working. But here, let me give you a bone. I've given a straight answer several times. I'm honestly surprised you haven't understood my plain English. Let me give it another try with other words. I think the Pizzagate affair was a set-up gotcha (probably by Podesta & Co., but no one knows what the shadow knows) to divert attention from other pedophiles and pedophile cliques, and human trafficking in general, including Epstein & Co. The expression they like to use (at other times with other topics) is "sucking up the oxygen in the room." The set-up gotcha Pizzagate affair was engineered to suck all the oxygen out of the room, meaning there is no space left in the mainstream media to discuss those more widespread sinister things. And, I believe there was probably some serious monkey-business run through that Pizza parlor based on the guy's closeness to Podesta. But not like the setup gotcha was. Just normal hidden shit nobody finds out if the sleazy dudes are careful. These are not good people. That's my opinion and I'm fine if they don't like me, either. btw - I love the sound of: "The Truth of Pizzagate." It sounds like a book title by a preacher or recipe book or something. Also, nobody's talking about it, but I still think young children victimized (in the past, present or future) by pedophilia rings need to be protected. Michael
  25. Rush Limbaugh is hitting on an insidious part of fake news In persuasion, this media image Rush refers to is called the bandwagon effect. It is one way crowds work--people increasingly jump on a bandwagon and a lathered up crowd appears. Except the corporate media has been trying to jigger this natural happening with a barrage of one-sided coverage. And those geniuses still pretend to themselves they are the gatekeepers of the bandwagon. They imagine it's like the old days when people would logically assume the media was presenting what the American people in general were thinking and feeling since so many stories leaned in the same direction. Unfortunately for the fake media, the Internet and social media (despite all kinds of monkeyshines going on right now) presents a direct contradiction to the image these fake-ass elitists are trying to convey. What's more, Internet and social media users are getting hammered with stories pointing out this very discrepancy. So the fake media is looking like a bunch of lying dorks to a huge chunk of the population. It's hard to argue with stats (unless we are talking about fake polls like those we saw for a year-and-a-half during the election ) . Michael
  26. Thanks for thinking of the readers. You are normally better than this, Guy Two. The thread is a bizarre clusterfuck. We cannot get a straight answer out of Guy Two regarding The Truth of Pizzagate. Who are the Pizzagate! criminals, and what is wrong with people misinterpreting his remarks at the Listening Session? Why is the mainstream media ignoring Trump's pedophile arrests? And why can't you tell the difference between Guy One and Guy Two?
  27. This isn't on topic but instead is about the RoR screenshot William included in the post above. William, When is that screenshot from? It isn't current. I just checked (first I've looked at RoR in a long while, maybe more than a year). I'm sad to see on your screenshot that Teresa Summerlee Isanhart died. I knew her distantly years ago via emails she'd contribute in a small friends list run by Karen Reedstrom/later Minto. I liked Teresa, thought she was kind and wise and with a fun sense of humor. I want to read the RoR thread for details on her death but I don't know how to find the thread. Ellen
  28. Ellen, If that's the case, I'm more than happy to be wrong. If for nothing else, just for the sheer pleasure of seeing another way William can be wrong. Michael
