CONSERVATIVE SOCIOPATHS

LIBERAL HYPOCRITES

  1. California is America's largest and wealthiest state, by far, with an economy the size of South Korea or Italy. It is a blue state with a Democratic Party supermajority. In American terms this means it is entirely controlled by the more left-wing, socialist-friendly party 'looking out for the people not big business'. That's the sales pitch, anyway. Reality is another hypocrisy paradigm.
  2. Flint Michigan has unsafe drinking water. It's been that way since 2014, under Democratic President Obama and has continued into the Republican Presidency of Donald Trump. It's a useful case study of corruption, negligence, confidence trickery, false assurances and corporate responsibility. [1]

CORRUPTION INFO

  1. Watch out for "perception" or "polling" or "public opinion about" presentation. These are invariably bullshit: propaganda or filler misdirection. Data is not a matter for opinion. Perception is of interest to politicians trying to get elected but it's no way to derive facts from data.
