Extensive Experience In Foreign Policy Failure

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

After the last Democratic debate, Hilly Clinton surged ahead of Bernie Sanders in the polls.  The main reason given?  Her years of experience in foreign policy.  Amazing.

Bernie was one of the few voices of dissent over 10-years ago against the war and occupation of Iraq. Hilly the Hawk was  all gangbusters about killing Saddam Hussein and “liberating” that country.  She now admits that was a mistake. She refuses to admit that killing Gaddafi in Libya and occupying Afghanistan are mistakes too.  But one look at those shambled countries shows she might not have a firm grasp of non-spun reality.

America is not far behind her.  53% of Americans favor US ground troops in the Mideast.  They don’t seem to mind that the US continues to stick its nose into the affairs of foreign nations at the expense of putting America first.  They continue to believe the bullshit that we have “vital interests” in every goddamn country in the world and we’re constantly under attack.  These days all I can do is laugh at them.

There was a time I took it all seriously.  I predicted we’d lose the war in Vietnam – and I was right.  I predicted the wars and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan would be total disasters – and I’m right. I now predict Syria and most other Mideast countries will drown in sectarian Muslim violence taking American lives and treasure with them.

If I were a gentleman, I would not say, “I told you so.”  But, 

I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO!

I’ve Looked At Blots From Both Sides Now

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

A psychologist holds up the 1st image of the Rorschach Ink Blot Test.
“What’s this?” she says.
“2 people having oral sex,” says the client.
She holds up the next  picture. “And this?”
“A couple having anal sex,” he responds.
“This?” she asks with the 3rd image.
“A woman masturbating.”
“You seem to have sex on your mind a lot,” she says.
“ME!?” shouts the client, “YOU’RE the one with all the dirty pictures!”

Do you think the Rorschach Ink Blot Test is a good indicator of mental health? If you said, “yes,” you’re probably nuts.

The Rorschach test is only the best known of hundreds of projective technique exams that have been used since the 1800’s. Besides ink blots, clients have been shown pictures of clouds, trees, leaves, sand, water, and just about everything else. An unidentified “something” is held up and the testee says what he thinks it is.

Rorschach is better than most tests because it’s standardized – your responses  can be compared to the responses of thousands of others – but what it measures is relatively insignificant.

Not surprisingly, the more bizarre your answer, the more accurate the test.  If an ink blot is held up and you say, “Looks like golden space aliens knifing each other while having sex,” the psychologist is going to be scribbling as quickly as she can move her pen.
