NAACP: Travel To Missouri At Your Own Risk

This is so sad.

Filosofa's Word

You may have missed this story, for it was but a very short story … more of a blurb, really … in both The Washington Post and the New York Times, each of whom simply copied the Associated Press release, word for word.  I found the full story in the Kansas City Star along with links to verify and fill in the gaps.

The AP release:

I am alleging that our president is a full fledged “psychopath.” The republicans in the US Congress who continue to cover for him as enablers will rue the day, they sold their souls, so that they could revel in their real opportunity to legislate their wish list.

Most appear normal and charming upon initial contact. The experts report that about 1% of the population could be classified as psychopathic. It is estimated that 15% of those incarcerated would fit this profile but of those executives in the business world about 7% would qualify.
