Scotties Toy Box

We are a progressive nation being held hostage by a regressive minority.

  1. I’m convinced a lot of these people’s behavior is basically primate dominance displays (it’s curious that people who don’t believe in evolution behave so much in ways that parallel ape behavior). Shoving an opponent and then pulling a gun when the person defends himself fits that pattern. They have to feel that they’re intimidating others. The fetishistic display of guns and vivid vocal fantasies about using them that is so common in that subculture is the same kind of thing. Intimidation.

    As for being a minority, look at how they tend to react when challenged about the injustice of the Electoral College system delivering the victory to a candidate who got fewer votes. They say it has to be that way “or else California will always get to decide”, or “so the coasts don’t dominate just because they have more people”. It’s openly defending minority rule. And that’s what they’re doing with the gerrymandering, suppression of the black vote, and so on. I posted about this on my blog last week. Even if they keep “winning” that way, all they’ll accomplish is to entrench a system of blatant minority rule, which will have to get more and more flagrant since they’re a shrinking minority. That didn’t work out so well in South Africa. Is that what they really want?

    • Great thoughts. Thank you for adding to the discussion. I had not put it together that way.

      About your blog. I can not auto follow you because we are on different platforms, so do you have an email notification for new posts? I did save a link to your blog, but unless reminded I tend to forget to check the link. Hugs

      • Thanks! It’s also struck me that even with all those gimmicks they use to cling to power, Trump still probably couldn’t have won without interference by Putin, which means we have an unpopular minority government imposed by a hostile foreign power. Maybe now people will understand how the Iranians felt in 1953.

        A few people have asked me about e-mail subscriptions, but unfortunately the template my blog uses doesn’t seem to be set up for that (it’s 12 years old). I’ll keep looking into it and let you know if I find anything. I only do three or four posts a week, so you won’t miss anything if you only remember check every few days. The particular post I was referring to in that comment was this one.

        • OK thanks. Yes I had forgotten what we did with the Shaw of Iran deal. We had a bad habit of meddling in other countries leaders. Still now that the shoe is on the other foot, I can really see how it sucks to be on the receiving end of that. Hugs
