Showing posts with the label delusions

Bernie Sanders lost the FBI primary

This is a sentence that was first coined by Donald Trump, but that has been used by other mainstream journalists - for ex. Chuck Todd. Well, they like Trump on NBC and MSNBC, don't they. They have been featuring him non-stop during the primaries and then got all surprised when he won by a huge margin. Bernie Sanders was also booed by House Democrats earlier today. As THIS ARTICLE elucidates, he refused to back down, concede or endorse Clinton and he was on the receiving end of some criticism from the rest of the blue quadrupedal, ruminant mammals in Congress. Chuck Todd, above, even went insofar as to mention that Sanders was close to conceding to and endorsing Clinton. Group delusions... Mrs PP

Ultimately, I am sorry that you feel so worthless that you have to focus on discrediting others in order to increase your self worth, but be aware that it is a temporary solution. The bottom line is - mind your own business and look inside yourself to find happiness.  Do not spend your spare time being jealous of others because they have something you wish you could have.  Recognize this? You're the one wearing the eye patch - ugly, isn't it? Go get your own - dream job, Prince Charming, house, car and so forth...

Poor girl, your distorted vision of yo
