Why do certain people in democratic societies have a "bromance" for Vladimir Putin?
Former KGB officer,totalitarian, homophobe and all-around despot bent on creating a new Russian empire: everything about Putin screams anti-democracy (and don't forget the alleged political assassinations of critics and reporters as well as various invasions and intervention in proxy wars throughout Eastern Europe and the Middle East). Yet, strangely enough, some people in America on the right side of the political spectrum adore him. Why is someone who hates America and democracy getting so much "love" from people who claim to love this great country?
I don't know much about him. This photograph made me laugh. I had a strange dream of him this morning (not a clue of why) and in the dream, I had a date with him. Not a 'romantic date' but a meeting and then I was shown his limousine with very dark windows. Not sure what all that means...haha but possibly I am attracted to him and don't know it? Who knows. I liked his limo much more than his horse here. LOL
It is a real mystery why one of the world's biggest capitalists would have a lech for one of the world's biggest anti-capitalists, but the answer may be money. The Washington Post says that Trump has profited greatly from Russian money pouring into his investments, however, he denies receiving Russian money. Quite the contrary, his son, Donald Trump Jr. in 2008 said
“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.” Donald Trump Jr. added, “we see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.” (interview with Washington Post)
Trump is also said to have made millions from moving the Miss Universe Pageant to Russia in 2013. So it appears that Trump has $ signs in his eyes when he buddies up to Putin. Apparently Trump believes that money will buy him anything, including the U.S. presidency.
Why are Hillary Clinton's emails more important than accusations that Trump asked Russia to hack them? Do we really feel safe with Russia hacking into our emails -- regardless of whose emails they are. Would we feel safe with a president who got a foreign government to hack our into emails? That very subject needs more investigation, and those are questions we need to ask ourselves.
With current events this question now takes a scary turn. Now all the trumpsters are doing rhetorical acrobats to make the intrusion of Putin as being ok. Who knew the level of cognitive dissonance was so strong with them.

I was just wondering why foul language (obscene language, profanity, cursing, swearing, expletives, bad words, dirty words) is being tolerated in certain cases, and in the case of certain individuals. It is especially embarrassing when it comes from a woman. Should she not be counselled by a...

Do you think certain people are more susceptible to belief in a deity?Do you believe there are certain types of people that are more likely to believe in a god? Are there any reoccuring themes? Different brain functions? Are just some people more likely to believe it than others? Or is everybody...

Greetings all, check out this article and if you are so inclined share your thoughts. I think that this Trump guy is a bull in a china shop and is the reason the GOP has so little credibilty with Hispanic and, in general, minority voters. They keep on bringing the same clowns to the big top!...
