  •  The idea of "resistance" (0+ / 0-)

    seems very important to you.

    Sometimes people are contrary just to be contrary. But when it is a repetitive behavior then it's more likely they are being contrary because they want to beat the other person down and gain power over them. It is rarely as benign as you make it sound.

    The warmongers didn't recognize something in themselves when they ignored those resisting the calls to war. You're projecting the mindset of those who resist senseless wars onto those driven by power and profit who beat the war drums. The motives for these behaviors come from very different places.

    And the CONS aren't recognizing Obama as one of their own when they accuse him of being lazy. They'll say and do anything to demean the POTUS and weaken his influence. They just hope that some of their desperate shit-flinging sticks as they chip away at his character.

    The CONS aren't in "resistance mode." They're in active obstruction and sabotage mode in an attempt to regain power and control. To suggest they're sitting around doing nothing, frozen in an attempt to remain unnoticed, is absurd. The people who believe this and peddle it are the ones not paying attention or who have other motives.

    People are not dogs. There are any number of reasons people are mean. Being abused is just one of them.

    This diary reads like a shiny object for squirrels.
