It's my spiteful way of getting back at clueless judge-its who misjudge the merits of a war veteran who, right or wrong, was trying to protect his men. Has nothing to do with being brainwashed. On the contrary, repetition serves to un-brainwash the brainwashed.
But mostly it's just out of spite. Or stubborn resistance, if you will.
Brainwashing is a deliberate tactic to confuse the masses to achieve a less than honorable end to justify the means. The mainstream media propaganda is all over it and is succeeding to make you - among others - irrational thinkers.
Repetition serves to move you into the category of
Waxm*n with the "its' the ____" from his sixteen trolls.

<quoted text> American middle class wages and income have been stagnant for over 30 years because of Reagan's suppression of labor unions and passing laws to allow American corporations to hide more of their profits in tax loopholes and off-shore shelters, keep more of their profits for top management wages and benefits, push average worker wages downward, eliminate many of the labor union gains in wages, workplace safety, environmental protection, community livability, and worker/owner participatory capitalism

So now you are making excuses for his irrational behavior while a few moments ago it was a sign of his enlightenment? But a couple questions...If his girlfriend is lost...Did anyone go looking for her? And how do you run out of friends? How does one get counted out? I suspect you are more out of touch than he is.

There's a difference, you know.
So, you are denying the numerous U S Constitutional crises caused by George W Bush Administration and his Albert Gonzales -led DOJ by illegally wiretapping and spying on Americans without a U S Court judge authorization or Congressional oversight and using torture as a flawed interrogation method?

Yes, and Rachel Maddow had a segment on it last night; things are going to be shaken up it seems (good news):
The scope of the new clemency initiative is so large that administration officials are preparing a series of personnel and process changes to help them manage the influx of petitions they expect Obama to approve. Among the changes is reforming the recently censured office within the Justice Department responsible for processing pardon petitions. Yahoo News has learned that the pardon attorney, Ronald Rodgers, who was criticized in a 2012 Internal watchdog report for mishandling a high-profile clemency petition, is likely to step down as part of that overhaul. Additional procedures for handling large numbers of clemency petitions could be announced as soon as this week, a senior administration official said, though it could take longer.
Near the end of his first term, Obama expressed his frustration with how few positive clemency petitions were landing on his desk. He began meeting with White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmler and Holder to discuss how his pardon power could fit into his larger strategy of making the criminal-justice system fairer.(In mid-December, Holder followed up with a memo to Obama laying out his priorities for a second term in which he endorsed a more robust use of the pardon power as part of a broader criminal-justice reform initiative.) Over a series of five or 10 discussions, the president said he wanted more recommendations for pardons and commutations getting to his desk. The president complained that the pardon attorney's office favored petitions from wealthy and connected people, who had good lawyers and knew how to game the system. The typical felon recommended for clemency by the pardon attorney was a hunter who wanted a pardon so that he could apply for a hunting license.

“As Clover looked down the hillside her eyes filled with tears. If she could have spoken her thoughts, it would have been to say that this was not what they had aimed at when they had set themselves years ago to work for the overthrow of the human race. These scenes of terror and slaughter were not what they had looked forward to on that night when old Major first stirred them to rebellion. If she herself had had any picture of the future, it had been of a society of animals set free from hunger and the whip, all equal, each working according to his capacity, the strong protecting the weak, as she had protected the lost brood of ducklings with her foreleg on the night of Major's speech. Instead--she did not know why--they had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes. There was no thought of rebellion or disobedience in her mind. She knew that, even as things were, they were far better off than they had been in the days of Jones, and that before all else it was needful to prevent the return of the human beings. Whatever happened she would remain faithful, work hard, carry out the orders that were given to her, and accept the leadership of Napoleon. But still, it was not for this that she and all the other animals had hoped and toiled.”

#14 The U.S. national debt is currently sitting at $17,263,040,455,036.20, and it is being reported that is has grown by $6.666 trillion during the Obama years so far. Most of the burden of servicing that debt is going to fall on the middle class (if the middle class is able to survive that long).
#15 According to the Congressional Budget Office, interest payments on the national debt will nearly quadruple over the next ten years.

#18 There are 46.5 million Americans that are living in poverty, and the poverty rate in America has been at 15 percent or above for 3 consecutive years. That is the first time that has happened since 1965.
#19 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to 47 million.

#21 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the average duration of unemployment in the United States has risen from 19.8 weeks to 37.1 weeks.
#22 Middle-wage jobs accounted for 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession, but they have accounted for only 22 percent of the jobs created since then.

“In a way, the world-view of the party imposed itself most successfully on people incapable of understanding it. They could be made to accept the most flagrant violation, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything and what they swallowed did them no harm because it left no residue behind, just as a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird.”

Constitutional crises?

Spying on Americans?

No US court judge authorization?

His idiotic and by the dishonest remarks while in congress made him a natural for a set on FOX entertainment news programming.
He's a clown! A tea party clown!

You repeat the same post every day as if somehow someone somewhere was going to be influenced by your yarns - repeated.

Soon you may end each post with "its the Kulture"
