T.I.C.* -- or Torture-ette Syndrome?

T.I.C.* -- or Torture-ette Syndrome?

A fine example of an ancient GOPwarts family value, T.I.C. [*Torture Is Cool] probably begins before potty-training. We should feel sorry for parents whose baby-Neanderthals become first-class button-pushers to all the easy targets by kindergarten -- besides giving a whole new meaning to the term, “pusher-man” -- but we don’t.

Somehow, mini-society rewards T.I.C. behaviors -- the easy targets earn more ridicule from a larger audience over time, because the perps create and maintain the target’s negative rove. . . uhhh, role. Eventually, height-intimidated teachers begin their customary appeasement by looking the other way.


And today’s lesson is. . .so what? Making others look bad makes the perps look goo’oood! Rii’iiight! Perps just wanna-become “bad boys” that every popular girl (or boy -- Down, Gannon!) will lust-forever-after. Fortunately, most T.I.C.-ers end up as adults seeking control-freak careers: Doctor, Lawyer, Congressman, Thief; Banker, Broker, Halliburton Chief! Only a “chosen” few become President.

Future GOPwarters (why does their name sound like a German beer?) probably graduate to full-blown Torture-ette Syndrome (T.S.) in college -- what kind of Neanderthal doesn’t mind being tortured in order to join a club whose sole mission is allowing new members to freely torture rival Neanderthals and newer members, for 3-1/2 more years? Talk about groupstink!

Even their drinking games are a post-barbaric-ritual holdover -- wine was not a new product in the Old Testament -- and why would “popular” Laura marry a drinkin’, tokin’, and cokin’ man unless she was a party-er, too? Curious. More GOPwarters from the beerbong, anyone?


Scoppertop fiend-ly remembers two older boys in our neighborhood using T.I.C.-niques on mice and lizards -- our “bad boys” informed us that members of the animal kingdom can’t feel fear, which made us question why said members run like hell when anybody tries to capture them.

We moved to a nicer neighborhood when I was 7. T.I.C.-boy #1 grew up to become a cop (Controller Of People). We found out T.I.C.-boy #2 chose “male witch” as a profession (but don’t you dare call him a warlock!) when a local journalist saw fit to interview him for the paper’s Halloween edition 10 years later.

Said journalist somehow neglected to relate how #2 would hide on his roof and throw down a life-sized “dangling stuffed corpse complete with noose” on top of unsuspecting trick-or-treaters. I’m sure #2’s mother thought his “Halloween Surprise” was funny -- at least he didn’t grow up to be President.


GOPwarts might have a bunch of Forbes 400 billionaires and old party-ers in their club, but there isn’t anything Grand about them, except maybe their compensation-per-second. Then again, all control freaks look alike to Scoppertop -- it’s in the eyes, which always appear habeas corpus-less and cold as a male-witch’s tit. (Down, Gannon!)

Since GOPwarts’ torture bill has “nothing” to do with national security, here’s an ancient toast to protect all Americans from our past and future T.S. sufferers-in-charge:

May Bush never explode your frogs, may Dr. Frist never perform surgery on your non-anaesthetized cats, and may only the sulfurous-smelling devil find out what evil lurks in the hearts of Cheney and Rumsfeld -- and may you never become the easy target “who gets in their way.” Amen.

Hello Scoppertop and all,

The time has arrived to think outside of the box, or else...

Understanding and fixing the failings of politics and democracy for the benefit of everyone, everywhere

Politics is little more than greed, arrogance, falsehood, hero-worship, and injustice taken to extremes and organized into teams (nations, parties, interest groups, etc). It is the struggle for your group, hero, and viewpoint so you can profit at the expense of others. This forces others to do the same in self-defense, causing an endless loop, downward spiral, and no-gain effect. When money, religion, and politics are intermingled, they form a true inescapable trap or bottomless pit. It is the opposite of compassion, cooperation, justice, and wisdom and causes you to expend dramatically more effort, time, and resources than necessary to achieve lesser results than are possible when you simply cooperate and have compassion, empathy, and charity for each other. Harmony and cooperation are on the perfect path, while politics, religion and money are ignorance, strong lies, strong delusion, and utter folly.

The primary, though hidden purpose of politics is to effectively divide and conquer populations who support and participate in these great delusions. Politics serves to dramatically slow and confound progress towards common and common-sense goals that most people want to achieve. This is one of the reasons why major problems persist for centuries. When people finally cooperate to solve problems for the good of all, problems will finally be solved and stay solved. On the other hand, participating in and supporting politics causes problems to persist and even to reappear later, though they were apparently solved previously. Because of the ability of those who also control money and religion to reverse past progress and prevent true cooperation, politics is a great deception and a trap and the opposite of truth, wisdom, and justice.
