Everyone mentions Narcissism, so who are they!
Most of Congress, the current administration could easily be diagnosed with Narcissism.
Is this a general personality trait of elected officials? Hopefully not one that is required.
I would be doing a disservice here if I didn’t mention one potential 2016 presidential candidate that has all the below SYMPTOMS of this personality disorder. HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON: You knew it was coming!!
Symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder
In order for a person to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) they must meet five or more of the following symptoms:
- Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
- Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
- Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
- Requires excessive admiration
- Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations
- Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
- Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others
- Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
- Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
THOUGHT FOR A DAY
Remember the Hippy days in Haight Ashbury?
Make peace not war! Where have all the Hippies gone?
At least they had a cause. We could use some voices from the people in the USA today.
If Obama uses a speech writer, he should fire him or her. If he doesn’t use a writer, he either should or have someone review his speeches to possibly avoid exhibits of stupidity.
Obama stated the ISIS, ISIL or IS terrorists, whatever you refer to them, are not Islamic. Everyone has quoted Obama on his description. So what exactly are they to him, they are not Christians or Jews? Plenty has already been said on this now infamous quote.
Obama also stated the air strike strategy to destroy ISIS will not be a combat mission, no boots on the ground. Would someone please explain to this moron that fighting an enemy whether by ground forces or striking by air is combat. This isn’t a damn chess game. He can say this in the same breath that there is risk?
Does the POTUS hear what he is saying?
Obama really is in over is head, he is like a little league player showing up to play in the major leagues. Or he really does know what he is doing, and it is not in the USA’s best interest.
It’s the first Sunday of the 2014 NFL season. I haven’t had many visitors or viewers today on my blogs………too busy watching games I guess.
Are people more interested in National League Football than they are with what else is going on in the world or their country? This is an unofficial survey. I have only been blogging for 2 months, but, this is my first Sunday during the NFL season, and my blogging numbers have dropped off significantly. I was just curious, what do you think?
Why do you keep coming here?…… Mom ask. Without giving a seconds thought I replied “This is where you are.” She just smiled, as much as she could, like it was the most meaningful thing she had heard in a long time. I was glad I said it.
I saw her in the cafeteria of the Lutheran Senior Services Center at the dinner table. I walked up behind her, took a chair on the end next to her, just her and me. She looked up, recognized me just as she always had; she didn’t look the same to me. A “that isn’t my Mom” thought came to mind. Her eyes were sunken a reddish pink color. A hollow look ……..my real Mom isn’t there anymore. It’s the first time I ever felt that. She looks lost, defeated.
Just a few days earlier she was ready to go home; but she has more days of rehab., to gain strength back from a short hospital stay. Maybe she was just having a bad day. She was tired from rehab. She couldn’t hold a fork in her hand…..there was silverware on the floor underneath the wheelchair. What a difference a day makes.
We spent some time talking, only bits and pieces made sense. I really didn’t want to leave her. After awhile I got up, rubbed her back and told her I loved her. As I walked out, all I could see was her face, lost, lonely, but this was a different loneliness than what she has felt since we lost my dad. I feel helpless. Maybe tomorrow she’ll be back, I can tell her I love her.
There is no love like a mother’s love. If you are fortunate enough to still have yours, give her a hug and tell her you love her. What a difference a day makes.
Why does bad news always out weigh and out number good news? Why do we rush towards the bad and disasterous? Is it our makeup?
We give the bad and spoiled too much attention. I thrive for good news, lets make good news-together.
I haven’t written about Obama being on a 2 week vacation, until now. What is all the fuss? Let the man have some time off, Lord knows he can you use a little relaxation. Haven’t you seen the stress he is under? Is Michelle with him….I don’t think she plays golf?
King Obama can still make executive decisions from the golf cart, then go hit that next shank. I have seen his swing, it can use some work. I would also advise the President to walk from tee to green, it gives him more time to think, or in his case plot.
Please Barry, take all the time off you need. Shanks for your service, but why not take a permanent vacation. Does Joe play?
