TRUMP (oops, BMT) is Half-a-Loaf (actually, half a pyramid)

My graduate degree concentrated on organizational psychology, and one “thing” of few that stuck with me all these decades since, is Maslow’s theory of motivation model.  BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude, aka that which occupies the Oval Office) is clearly unable to break out of the bottom half of the model.  He is and always will be trapped in an infantile state, sad to say, and to me that was pretty obvious during the 2016 campaign.

If you can’t make out the smaller image above, here is another larger one:

BMT’s entire life and now his political existence can be explained very simply with the model as a framework:

  • Green:  He is all about comforts, easy living, stuffing his face with burgers, and of course groping women’s privates.
  • Safety:  OMG the caravans are coming!
  • Belonging and Love:  his close family, inner circle and having eye candy hanging onto his hand (and she with that blank look of “is it over with yet?”).
  • Esteem:  Article 2 gives me supreme power, and you better love me and not ever let me see you laughing behind my back.

Beyond this, he is a shell of a human being.

Sadly, his type can only attract persons who also are trapped in the bottom half, easily explaining people like Pence, Pompeo, Barr and the obsequious minions of the GOP.

But sadly, given his appeal to a large sector of America, it is evident that our very Nation is trapped in a mass psychosis of underdevelopment.

Ok, I feel better now.

If it WALKS like a Duck, QUACKS like a Duck & POOPS like a Duck…..

It’s Bottomless Moral Turpitude (BMT) in a DUCK SUIT!

(For any new readers:  BMT is that which occupies the Oval Office.)

How much more DUCK POOP is America going to tolerate?  It’s already so slippery that many of his own base are deciding to stop following his ass, like little ugly ducklings all!

But on the other hand, there are so many others who would sell their souls to the Duck Devil and keep sliding in his mess, rather than admit they have made a grievous life mistake.  Even Ducks appear to have egos (or, eggos?).

 

Substitute “WHISTLE BLOWER” FOR “somebody”

Who could even fathom in this BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude) dystopian civil war we are living through, that such an incident as titled above could actually happen.  Trump has threatened the lives of the Whistle Blower and anyone who gave WB information, openly, and its all on tape.  Given that he cannot be arrested for any crime while in office, he could – and I would not put it past him given his mental degradation – arrange to kill the person himself in the middle of Fifth Avenue, and then give a thumbs up.

And his base would cheer!

So my reading of all this is two things:  BMT is just literally crazy; and, most of his supporters are quite ok with domestic political terrorism to maintain their White status quo, and could care less about the Constitution other than the “right to bear arms.”

This Nation is in dire straights.  What this Presidency has shown us is that the Constitution could never have fathomed a lunatic in office, supported by a large segment of the electorate.  Of course IMPEACHMENT proceedings are the path required by the Constitution, but UNLESS Republicans in the Senate come out and actually uphold their OATH of OFFICE, he will not be impeached.  I pray I am wrong that they will not.

Without impeachment, BMT does have a good chance of re-election, especially playing dirty as we know he will.  And, even if he lost the election, he will find every way he can to tie up the election in court – his SCOTUS.

While we know that at least in five years he will be gone, I cannot even imagine the further ruination he will foster on America in that period.

But I still have faith, and I know “God don’t like ugly.”

Neo-Nazis (Nazis) Claim to be ARYANS. Huummmm.

I watched an excellent documentary film two evenings ago, titled The Aryans, by Mo Asumang.  Mo is a German of mixed parentage, her father being from Ghana and her mother white German.  Her mother was in the Nazi “SS,” and her father was a German officer.  Mo decided she had had enough of neo-Nazi racists in her own land, so embarked on making a film about Nazis, Aryans and hate groups, including the KKK in the US.  She even went to Iran, in search of “real Aryans.”

Prior to watching this film, then doing some research on the web, I had always believed that yes, Aryans were “Caucasians” who at one time lived somewhere north of India, and many thousands of years ago had migrated into the Indian continent, eventually changing India’s complexion, religions and instituting the caste system.  From what I have read, although many Indians themselves cling to this theory, probably helped along by 19th Century British and other European “scholars,” the truth may be far from that.

Moreover, it appears that Iranians, Persians, have a claim on being the original Aryans, although that in itself appears to be very contentious.

Mo bought a ticket  and traveled to Iran, then went out in the countryside and found some folk to claim to be real Aryans.  Who am I to doubt them, nor did she.  Who really knows?  The real Aryans seem to be almost mythical, like so much of world history that we have been taught as fact.  We forget how old civilizations are, and each having its own origins story, which have been played over and over through time, rewritten, enhanced and offered up as nationalistic rhetoric each time the land passed into new powers.

So, basically Mo proved what she already knew: that the Nazi and “German fraternities” claims about being “real Germans” and rooted in “Aryan stock” was basically bullshit created by one little mustached, dark haired, dark eyed idiot (at least he could have bleached his hair to emulate what “Aryans” are supposed to look like, blue-eyed (as I am) blondes (I am not).

What was an eye opener in her film was just how pervasive these hate groups and quasi-hate group “fraternities” are around Germany.  There are even areas controlled by neo-Nazis…..small villages….where “non Whites” and Jews are told not to tread.  A bit scary, for sure.  I guess my father in his B-25 and his outfit of the 57th Bombardment Wing missed a few of these guys granddads when he was bombing their asses in Italy.  But then, you can’t kill an idea, good or evil, with bombs.

Mo boarded another airplane to wing the pond, to interview a creep whose name I shall not repeat, as he doesn’t deserve any mention, but his words were so vile and wrong that I cannot even find my own words to comment.

What Mo showed, as I already knew, is that generally these “Aryans” are nothing more than men (and sometimes women) who are losers in our society:  losers with getting friends who aren’t losers, getting girlfriends, ones who likely were bullied in school, ones who had poor parenting or none at all, generally guys looking to blame their shitty existence on.  So if you can do that and wear Halloween costumes, whoa, now that’s life, right?

As for the KKK, I will write about them another day.  The origins of the KKK are amusing, but not what they did over the next 100 years.  Aryans? No.  Scottish like me.  Yes.  Sadly.

Anyway, I am still looking to find the real Aryans, and if I do, I will let you all know.

An Earth Extinction Event?

So this week, BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude, aka “that which occupies the Oval Office”) decided he would play Weather Channel guy.  People in Alabama, need to be prepared!  He even came with visual aids to validate his prognostication that made both the US and the European hurricane models hang their virtual heads in shame (or to hide their mirth?) Here is his little show & tell:

hurricane

My oh my…….stay tuned for BMT taking the lead on informing Earthlings of the coming extinction! (What a marvelous deception BMT! Wow, you could really buy up some great real estate if you even got a few people to believe you, right?)

This President….is just plain Wacko!
