I was thinking about "Trump True Believers" (TTB®).

"Why did all those Economically Anxious™ Trump voters reject policies that would have helped relieve their economic anxiety?

Maybe they believed any Big Government expansions would disproportionately go to the “wrong” kinds of people — that is, people unlike themselves."

Where BELIEVING starts, THINKING stops!

The believing mind is resilient to change - beliefs are crystallized structures (sorta like a tumor). Yes, the believing mind is a diseased mind!

In recent years, though, we have started to better understand the neural bases of states like happiness, gratitude, resilience, love, compassion, and so forth. And better understanding them means we can skillfully stimulate the neural substrates of those states—which, in turn, means we can strengthen them. Because as the famous saying by the Canadian scientist Donald Hebb goes, “Neurons that fire together, wire together.”

"Trump True Believers" (TTB®) need a long trip to Tibet. Or at least a long trip.

Andrew Leonard's piece in Rolling Stone, “How LSD Microdosing Became the Hot New Business Trip,” is a good start.

When I went to Chico State College (in the late 1960s), we called Jesus freaks "Jesus FREAKS." And we, it turns out, were correct. (The "right" is seldom correct.)

Besides, it turns out that "Jesus IS a mushroom."

It's not the wafer, it's the shroom!

And for followers of the Qu'ran, it's 72 white grapes (or raisins).

"Will Muslim Martyrs Get 72 Raisins?"

“Insha Allah”

Wait, and see.

this is the end...

in some circles, temperatures that are 50 degrees (F) or 20 degrees (C) above normal raise more than eyebrows. These temperatures raise sea levels - by a lot!

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes, again

If the temperature is 20 degrees higher in Tempe, AZ, or the upper mid-west this summer, we will see "climate refugees" swarming to cooler locations.

French-speaking Indians who live deep in Louisiana bayou, some 50 miles south of New Orleans, became the United States' first official climate refugees when the federal government awarded them $48 million to relocate.

It's high time (or high tide) to steal that $48 million!

Donald Trump plans to change Veterans' Health Care that will push the VA toward privatization. A $3,500 annual voucher should cover all your war injuries, soldier!

Trump knows what is good for Amerika - more homeless! The Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) Program provides VA with a way to reach and assist homeless Veterans by offering them entry to VA care. Trump, and the republicans will END THAT! The outspoken veterans were shouted down by ignorant bullies (e.g. trump supporters).

Mother, it's cold outside! Besides, the homeless have nothing for trump to steal.

What can WE do?

Stay warm and dry. With 7,400,000,000 people on the planet, 5 billion have to be culled out - one way or the other.

Trump wants to restart TESTING.

Ask the "Downwinders" what they think of the idea.

Here is a typical Trump supporter, ask him.

At first, he will stand his ground.

And then he will say: "Are you talkin' to me?"
