Somehow, somewhere, people have come to think that they are, individually, in charge of gov’t, what others say, what they do and what they are allowed to think. It’s like everyone has a Napoleon Complex.

@bradenslen As usual, I blame the internet. 😉 I grew up in a world where being a narcissistic butthead would get you fired, dumped, and/or punched in the jaw. Now? That behavior gets you an enthusiastic fan base and few real world consequences. 🤷🏼‍♀️

@Cheri Well said. There is always somebody higher up than us as individuals, that we have to answer to. That used to be common sense, but some people have never quite figured it out. Also it's one thing to rant online, but when it bleeds over into people acting out their online craziness in real life, in stores, on streets, when they drive, it gets dangerous. Things were supposed to improve once we got more than 4 TV channels, but once we got Web 2.0 on the internet things sure went South.

@Cheri @bradenslen For some people, it can even get you elected as a (former) President that still is acting like a complete donkey’s ass.
