  •  It's another example of Rs and "responsibility" (22+ / 0-)

    ... and how like DV abusers ... they don't get the concept at all.

    "My wife makes me hit her."

    "I wouldn't act that way if my partner didn't ..."

    "I don't want to do that ... but ..."

    Same thing here:

    "Don't make us have to kill any more physicians!"

    As I wrote in another recent thread:

    I've noted it here before many times, but the mindset/emotional state of modern "conservatives" seems to exactly parallel that of domestic violence abusers.  I'm not sure why it does, but it definitely does.

    They simply do not get the whole concept of "personal responsibility" ... choices and consequences ... looking inward ...  You just have to keep hammering away at it with them, hoping it will start to sink in.

    The image I always got working with them in counseling group was of a cork bobbing around in the ocean, completely at the mercy of external forces, buffeted about with no inner motivating force at all, completely re-active.  (That is their view of themselves, I mean.)

    And when something doesn't go their way, it must be because of something OUT THERE ... because everything that happens is due to something OUT THERE.
