  •  he's just moved from sociopath to psychopath. (21+ / 0-)

    Strictly speaking, "psychopath" is a law enforcement category for "criminals who enjoy the suffering of their victims", and not a psychiatric category.  

    However last time I checked, Erickson was convicted of attempted illegal wiretap or something along those lines, so that makes him a criminal, and this instance shows him enjoying the suffering of a victim, so the glove fits.

    And we should start using that word on him early and often.

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      cable TV.

      I did two years ago and haven't missed a thing.  The money saved can be used to help others in need.

      Just a thought.

      And, yeah, sure, there were withdrawal symptoms from being to record the programs I like, fast forward the commercials, and watch them at my liesure.

      That TV time is now spent researching on the net when I have some down time.

      Certainly more educational than cable TV

      And comcast is becoming its own beast that I don't think gives a rats ass about any of us.

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

        I gave up cable probably about 5 years ago (at least) which for me means NO TV period.  Live in a backwards place that has no LOCAL channels and NO reception without cable.  Don't miss it one bit.  I spend my free time, much like you on the net.  I do watch movies that I get from Net Flix though, so I can rest a bit before bed time.  LOL
