    Much appreciated!

    Still trying to figure out what comes after cognitive dissonance for these people.  But the bubble they inhabit seems immune to actual reality.

      anticipate the direction the GOP and the RWNJs will go.  In the election loss context, however, I don't think they will move beyond the Second State.  I hope they stay stuck on the first stage.

      First Stage - DENIAL

      Second Stage - ANGER

      Third Stage - Bargaining (yeah, go McConnell)

      Fourth Stage - Depression (already chronic from fear)

      Fifth State - Acceptance (never, ever happen, too invested in "being right" no pun)

      Am hearing reports of people running out and stocking up on ammo again after this election as the Purveyors of Lies, Fear, & Hate (Beck, Hannity, Rush, Alec Jones, etc.) have their mesmerized followers convinced Obama is evil and Stalinesque, that aliens will be dropping by soon, and that they had better have their cave dwellings, bug out bags, guns & ammo ready so the can survive the destruction of the dollar, the collapse of the Madrid faultline, and that big, pesky Nibiru thingy lurking out there IF we survive beyond 12/21/2012.

      Fear and poverty breed despair, despair breeds stress, stress breeds short tempers and, over time, perhaps insanity.

      I think too many are at the despair stage right now.

      Your thoughts?

      It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
