Connecting Dots: Mean People Suck

Yet another Alaskan politician has put our own special breed of elected gerrymandered representatives on the (national stage now) map of vulgar stupidity.
“You have individuals who are in villages and are glad to be pregnant, so that they can have an abortion because there’s a free trip to Anchorage involved,” Eastman said. - Alaska Public Media

Now if, like a lot of folks who are inundated with the daily stream of disheartening news, you ever wonder how and why it is that there seems to be an unheralded tsunami of heartless bastards unleashed on every aspect of government and society... here’s a real big clue:

Of all the stunned moments of “WTF is wrong with people” (so far... as it’s apparently a bottomless well at this point), this one is the single most indicative insight to just how little some people think an feel. Not to put too fine a point on it, they just don’t care, about anybody else. Exhibit “A” for inhuman monsters.
As the crowd laughed, Ross added: “The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”
Lacking the fundamental capacity to care, these War Pigs ("pro-life" no less) will have absolutely no compunction pushing buttons to kill as many people as possible for their private fucking entertainment + profit. Then they will willingly send other people's children out to die. They look at inflicting pain + suffering as part of their jobs. And for many of them, in order to hasten the end times they will consign everybody else to a literal hell on earth.

Gettin' real tired of this shit

I mean, seriously... just what the hell is their problem? Is it part of the job to not have a conscience, to not possess any sense of morality or basic human empathy? This mentality relates to every other issue currently consuming our news feeds ( as per the screen grabs from just one recent morning posted above) because the very same callous and sociopathic behavior behind joking about raining death on other countries means they sure as fuck don't give a shit about whether or not fellow citizens starve, are poisoned, beaten, imprisoned, destitute, murdered etc. This transcends partisan issues: it is malignant stupidity coupled with naked corruption.

Meanwhile, back in Alaska, this reprehensible behavior is by no means restricted to any one particular district, and it occurs throughout all levels of government from federal (especially there) to the local level. Indeed it is a hallmark of the Alaska Republican Party apparatus, and given the endemic and epidemic of racial and bigoted sentiment shared by just barely enough of voters. And it's well worth remembering that this attitude is shared by many politicians (Kelly, Coghill et al) who have learned not to say such things aloud and on the record - though their voting record sends a message, loud & clear.

And finally, not to lower the bar even further on civil discourse, but I for one am personally looking forward to when Alaskan politicians start slapping around cartoonists, as they evidently have started deeming acceptable to reporters.
JUNEAU, Alaska (KTUU) - The political reporter for Alaska's largest newspaper alleges in a police report that Sen. David Wilson, R-Wasilla, slapped him in the face in a stairwell at the State Capitol one day after a story was published that cast the freshman lawmaker in an unfavorable light.
