When the president does it, it isn’t a crime.

Part of my research is based on figuring out how people lie to themselves. I think that humans use syllogism to slip horse shit past their own logic filters. Thus absolving themselves of crimes, and allowing them to not scrutinize themselves.

I am the president, the president is virtuous, therefore I have not committed a crime…

  1. I hate politics. They’re born manipulator’s. A person at work told me they got advise from the attorney I work with, to never answer a question directly. Give an answer, touch on the topic, however simply appease the person. They advised me that this was 26 years ago and they’ve never answered a question directly since. I looked at him for a few seconds, waited and what he said clicked in his head, he turned and walked away. Point being, the lies people tell themselves serve them and most people don’t want the truth, especially if it’s about themselves if it’s ugly or dark, or they’ve done something wrong. At least that’s been my experience. Especially politicians, they are part of a well oiled machine. In politics if they can convince themselves it’s for the greater good, they can get away with it and they do, never mind those who support it, they can sleep at night. However πŸ™‚ I’m sure the night mares are neatly suppressed in a little box in their head. They’ll bite them later.

      • Hmmmm… some of them can be utter twats. However, I know very nice one’s as well. I have old school family friends who are very well off. However, the difference could be that they are in their 80’s and come from nothing and made something with hard work and grit. That’s good shit right there.

        Actually… my boss can be an utter asshole, I believe he’s very well off, and he’s a generous person, not snobby or stuck up. When he’s not yelling like an imbecile and I have to redirect him but that’s a behavioral issue, not a uh… shit… uhm… you know, brat, greater than though rich I’m better than you mentality.

      • I’ve been lucky then. πŸ™‚ Have you ever read Rich Dad, Poor Dad? (Not that you have to) It talked about how we view money, people who have money and particular mindsets as well. I read it about, geez… 12 years ago? πŸ™‚ It shifted me from viewing all people with money as pure assholes. Basically all I’m saying is, you’ve met the wrong type of people. Cocky bullshit humanz with money are annoying, I hear ya.

      • People don’t give me a chance, they aren’t afraid i will fail they are afraid I will succeed. If they would just get behind me, and support me they would see. They are learning this at work. I keep breaking records in sales. I make my own money, I just want to be put in a position where I am allowed to make lots of value for lots of people and a proportionately correct amount for myself too.

      • Good for you making record breaking sales πŸ™‚
        It’s been my experience that some don’t like another due to the very real fact that they aren’t capable of doing what we are (you are, someone) it makes them feel threatened, intimidated because they’re not doing enough. We have a case at work where a guy was fired for excelling and he was set up by a couple managers and subsequently fired. It was nothing he’d done. Point being, keep it up. That’s literally their problem.

        So… their fear is … their problem then. Yes? πŸ™‚

      • ❀ Well, in your context, I'll grin. πŸ™‚ Point taken (?) We are though. We come out wanting our needs met and that's okay, we're human beings. However there is good and bad, there is coming from a place of integrity and personal responsibility as well. I literally cannot manipulate a person if it is with the intent to harm them in some way. I feel like shit because it goes against the grain of my integrity. There is, however good manipulation, reframing, using the good things I know to help people feel lighter, reframe things and feel better. I like that, that's cool. πŸ™‚ I do that all the time. You know how you read microexpressions, I do that as well (You verbalize it better than I can) and with that and the other things I know, I try and make things better, not only for myself but those around me. It's exhausting. What I do like, is that you do it too, so I wouldn't have to explain it. πŸ™‚ I be all like "IT'S RIGHT THERE ON THEIR FACE" !!! other people be like … whaaaaa lol

      • Srsly. I can’t tell you, how many times some people were all like, “Oh you’re too tough on people, etc.,” I’d be all like WTF!? It’s RIGHT THERE! Gaaah!

      • I tell people exactly what somebody is going to do and nobody f-ing believes me, and then it happens and they don’t even remember I told them. That is why I started putting time stamps on my predictions.

      • Yes! I know those feelz! Cept, sometimes I remind them. Not because I was right (I hate when someone’s hurting and they didn’t listen) more because I would like them to understand I see certain things they may miss and I would like them to entertain what I’ve said more carefully to avoid it in the future.
