#1 (I hope) its kinda like when a head is moving in one direction, stops suddenly so that the brain inside sloshes forward, then the head rebounds in the reverse direction from the impact and strikes another surface causing the brain to slosh in the other direction.

#3 I read this on Insty earlier. The underlying assumption, mistaken IMHO, is that these people will ever recognize that Trump is defying their predictions.

Their predictions are gospel and nothing he could possibly do, other than surrender totally to the socialist ideal, would ever be recognized as being anything other than proof of his r,s,h,a-s,s-d dictatorial evil.

You can, IIUC, be subject to congnitive dissonance if you are capable of recognizing reality outside of your hallucinations. They can't.

There "reality" is impervious to anything external to their mental constructs.

#4 Have you ever had someone tell you that Socialism is fluffy bunnies, rainbows, and dancing unicorns? Any Real Life counter example is waved off as being something other than True Socialism(c).
