Anyone here who is a Trump supporter is suffering from extreme cognitive dissonance. Not that Trump is particularly relevant to this thread.

Can't resist making some snarky political comment can you.

Overall, Americans could expect to live 78.6 years at birth in 2017, down a tenth of a year from the 2016 estimate, according to the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. Men could anticipate a life span of 76.1 years, down a tenth of a year from 2016. Life expectancy for women in 2017 was 81.1 years, unchanged from the previous year.

Drug overdoses set another annual record in 2017, cresting at 70,237 — up from 63,632 the year before, the government said in a companion report. The opioid epidemic continued to take a relentless toll, with 47,600 deaths in 2017 from drugs sold on the street such as fentanyl and heroin, as well as prescription narcotics. That was also a record number, driven largely by an increase in fentanyl deaths.

Since 1999, the number of drug overdose deaths has more than quadrupled. Deaths attributed to opioids were nearly six times greater in 2017 than they were in 1999.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... edirect=on

While Trump was President in 2017 he wasn't from 1999 to 2016, and from 2008 to 2016 you had your man Obama in the White House.

In May 2016, a group of national health experts issued an urgent plea in a private letter to high-level officials in the Obama administration. Thousands of people were dying from overdoses of fentanyl — the deadliest drug to ever hit U.S. streets — and the administration needed to take immediate action. The epidemic had been escalating for three years.

The 11 experts pressed the officials to declare fentanyl a national “public health emergency” that would put a laserlike focus on combating the emerging epidemic and warn the country about the threat, according to a copy of the letter.

“The fentanyl crisis represents an extraordinary public health challenge — and requires an extraordinary public health response,” the experts wrote to six administration officials, including the nation’s “drug czar” and the chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The administration considered the request but did not act on it.

I couldn't resist noting this contrast in personalities between the two:
Donald Trump: Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!

AOC: (tears of laughter emoji)


(originals)
Donald J. Trump on Twitter: "Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!" / Twitter
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "(tears of laughter emoji) https://t.co/W1q9zzgnN1" / Twitter

Also while DT angrily denounces "fake news" and supposedly failing newspapers like the New York Times, AOC has a different attitude: MSNBC on Twitter: ""I didn't expect them to make total fools of themselves," Rep. Ocasio-Cortez told @MSNBC's Chris Hayes. "I expected a little more nuance, and I expected a little more 'concern trolling.'" https://t.co/h0pclRdAI4" / Twitter In the video, you can see her grinning as some Fox News clips on her are played.

The two have in common that they both appreciate being loved, but DT gets very angry when someone doesn't love him as much as he thinks they should, and AOC doesn't.

Glad to see the anti-Jewish sentiments of the four socialists are once more front and center and the Dem presidential candidates are fully endorsing them. Trump did all that with a single tweet. Trump is the Godzilla of the troll world.

What "anti-Jewish sentiments"? Not hating Palestinians? They aren't exactly shouting "Jews will not replace us!"

Also, AOC was welcomed in a Jewish center in her district last December, where she lit a Hanukkah menorah. She described there how she likely has Jewish ancestors.

Thats an interesting video in the link, but neither the video nor the rest of your post have anything to do with the title you selected for this thread.

What exactly is it that you want to talk about? Try to be coherent, please.

Sure...

The New York Times is the boy who cried wolf too many times. So its current message is diluted. The New York Times and the rest of the fake stream media should lay off the big lie crack.

Ironically all these Trump derangement afflicted self-appointed shepherds of the proletariat are giving Trump lots of cover to roll back the policies and regulations they claim to be precious. As for the pollution chickens, the are coming home to roost already and no amount of corporatist denial will make them invisible.

... All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. - Missionaria Protectiva, Text QIV (decto)


Chapterhouse: Dune by Frank Herbert

http://www.systemsthinker.com/interests ... racy.shtml

----------------------------------

Pathological Power: The Danger of Governments Led by Narcissists and Psychopaths

https://phys.org/news/2019-09-pathologi ... paths.html

... It's not really surprising that people with personality disorders are drawn to political power—narcissists crave attention and affirmation, and feel that they are superior to others and have the right to dominate them. They also lack empathy, which means that they are able to ruthlessly exploit and abuse people for the sake of power. Psychopaths feel a similar sense of superiority and lack of empathy, but without the same impulse for attention and adoration.

But pathocracy isn't just about individuals. As Lobaczewski pointed out, pathological leaders tend to attract other people with psychological disorders. At the same time, empathetic and fair-minded people gradually fall away. They are either ostracised or step aside voluntarily, appalled by the growing pathology around them.

As a result, over time pathocracies become more entrenched and extreme. You can see this process in the Nazi takeover of the German government in the 1930s, when Germany moved from democracy to pathocracy in less than two years.

Democracy is an essential way of protecting people from pathological politicians, with principles and institutions that limit their power (the Bill of Rights in the US, which guarantees certain rights to citizens is a good example).

This is why pathocrats hate democracy. Once they attain power they do their best to dismantle and discredit democratic institutions, including the freedom and legitimacy of the press. This is the first thing that Hitler did when he became German chancellor, and it is what autocrats such as Trump, Vladimir Putin and Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán have been attempting to do.

... In the US, there has clearly been a movement towards pathocracy under Trump. As Lobaczewski's theory predicts, the old guard of more moderate White House officials—the "adults in the room" – has fallen away. The president is now surrounded by individuals who share his authoritarian tendencies and lack of empathy and morality.

It seems as if the UK is also, closer to pathocracy than ever before. The recent exodus of moderate Conservatives is characteristic of the purges which occur as a democracy transitions into pathocracy.

... the danger of democracy transitioning into pathocracy is always real. It is always closer to us than we think, and once it has a foothold, will crush every obstacle in its way.

just like Warren has Cherokee ancestors.. :roll:

It is guilt by association. She likes to be seen with Tlaib and Omar who are both very vocal wingnut anti-semites and has supported them on several occasions. AOC has also said Palestinians should be rioting and violence is OK. She has zero friends amongst the pro-Israeli groups in the US.
