Media outlets issued panicked reports of being “evicted”, “kicked out” or “exiled” from the cramped theater that used to be the White House’s indoor swimming pool. There was outrage at the thought that they might have to take an equally short walk to the White House Conference Center where they had already worked while the Bush White House spent millions in taxpayer money renovating the room.
“The press went crazy, so I said, ‘Let’s not move it.'” President Trump finally reassured them.
He got as much gratitude for it as President Nixon did for ruining a perfectly good indoor pool and as President Bush did for spending a fortune renovating it. Instead the media began spreading the same conspiracy theories accusing Bush of plotting to permanently banish them from the White House.
And that’s exactly what President Trump should do.
Excellent points, but this is not quite right.
“the main point here is that these people have no concrete reasoning capabilities”
There is a very good reason for this defiance of logic, evolutionary biology.
Resource glut (lots of free stuff) pushes a population toward instinctive r behavioral patterns. Part of this is changes in the amygdala. Your amygdala filters threat stimuli and triggers appropriate action. Like hitting the brakes, ducking your head, catching the ball coming at your face, and fleeing the lion.
When a population goes r , any population; rabbits, wolves or humans, all the free stuff means there is nothing worth fighting over, so the amygdala degenerates into a panic button and just triggers “flee” in every instance of threat perception.
Plenty of smart progs out there. My extended family is full of them. They are perfectly logical as long as no fact appears which threatens their world view, from which they must flee. Run rabbit, run. This is what we are seeing.
At the other end, scarcity drives a population K. You must be conservative, plan ahead, protect your own and evaluate each fact as if your life depends on it, because it does.
This develops the amygdala into an effective threat/ response filter. In addition to flee, you have the choice to say, downshift and steer around rather than slam the brakes. Or to just shoot the damn lion. You have options, it’s not just panic.
Populations wobble between r and K, and individuals do the same but can be anywhere within the spread. Of course humans, gifted with intellect, CAN decide for themselves how they will behave and their amygdala develops according to use. Sadly, a large percentage decide emotionally and then rationalize it. Rabbits by choice. (actual rabbits never go K)
r/K theory is Evolutionary Biology 101. You can find it applied to everything but humans if you look around.
Applying it to humans, oh so not-PC, has only been done by this guy.
The Evolutionary Psychology Behind Politics: How Conservatism and Liberalism Evolved Within Humans
A real feminist on the cat ladies.
On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of women and men converged on Washington to protest the democratic election of Donald Trump, and his barely-begun presidency.
The hat is pink, and has a clever design, so when it is placed on the head, it gives the effect of ears, like a pussycat. It also of course represents a slang and, to many, derogatory term for the female genitalia.
Compare the Islamic-style pussyhat:
I think most of us can agree that there’s nothing fun or clever about that. It is designed to remove women from the public sphere, to remind them and everyone else, that they are the private property of a man, who owns even the sight of them, which only he, as owner, is allowed to see.
The Western pussyhat alludes to a phrase used by Donald Trump in a private conversation with another man eleven…

John Derbyshire was the first person I heard use the phrase “cold civil war” to describe the culture war in American society and politics. His argument, if I recall correctly, is that the Civil War may have ended, but a cold version of it has festered ever since, largely over the issue of race, but other issues are part of it. The result has been the Blue side of the conflict, the good whites, imposing their will on the Gray side, the bad whites, using the “transcendent morality” of racism as the main weapon.
It is a good way of looking at things. The recent hysteria about the bogeyman of racism, for example, is almost all coming from suburban white women, who live in all white neighborhoods. They don’t really care about blacks in a practical sense. Their real concern is the specter of bad whites holding opinions the good whites find unacceptable. It’s what caused them to go bonkers over Bush and then force the ridiculous Barak Obama on us. The bad whites needed to be taught a lesson and put in their place, which is at the bottom of the social order.
To listen to the protestors in the streets or the self-anointed media elites on MSNBC or CNN, you’d think President Donald Trump was the second coming of Adolf Hitler.
On many levels (including the facts of history) nothing could be farther from the truth.
So what motivates Donald Trump to be in the White House? …
