Irony

Postby jadegil6 » Sat Apr 29, 2017 8:47 pm

I think it so ironic that a former poster on this forum who would rave on and on about religion has abandoned the forum because I posted a derogatory comment about Duterte. To date he has approved the murder of more than 8,000 people in the Philippines. All were extrajudicial killings...no arrests, no trials and immediately executed in the streets by death squads. I read a news article a few days ago about a hidden room in a Manila police department that held several captives. Apparently the police in many jurisdictions around the Philippines are holding captives for ransom now, and all is ignored by the government powers because the police are immune from proper laws. I have heard stories that if one has a grudge against someone else, kill them and leave a note on their body that the dead person was a drug user or drug dealer, and nobody will look into what transpired. The Philippines is becoming a very dangerous place in this world when crimes against humanity go unchecked as they have been for the past 10 months. But hey...the love of Duterte far exceeds God's laws or civil rights...right? How ironic! :o

The irony is not lost on me.
An accusation should not be seen as a conviction.

I agree that the crime problem needs a more productive solution but the death squad approach never works in the long run.

Here in North America we have been seeing a deterioration of common sense as well.I never thought that I would see colleges and university students protesting free speech but it is a common thing now.
There is a growing segment of the population that will gladly attack anybody they disagree with and justify it by calling whoever they attack a "nazi" Most of these idiots could not define the word nazi but they use it to justify their ongoing tantrum.All they have to do is vilify someone and no one will dare speak out when that person is attacked because if you speak out you will also be branded a nazi and be subject to attack.

The world is becoming a very disturbing place. Here in the US the political campaign brought out so much hatred, especially from Donald Trump. I still have a hard time believing that this monster won the election. Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie. I don't know what paths he will lead the nation and world down, but I know that the days ahead are going to be a challenge for the entire world.

Although I personally have problems justifying the actions taken by the President of the Philippines, I do not have any say in the matter. He continues to have a strong following and lots of support from many Filipinos. I have a bigger problem with the man who was elected to the US Presidency since I am a US citizen and live in the US.

I posted something on my facebook about 6 weeks ago that I am going to share here. If you can think of someone who fits this description, then kudos to you ;)

Below are 17 of the 20 checklist items on the PCL-R (Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised) which is the test used to determine if a person is classified as having a psychopathic mental disorder. The other three questions which are not listed are for persons who are incarcerated, so they are not included here. This is the checklist used in the US since 1998 by psychiatrists evaluating those individuals being diagnosed.
Although no psychiatric or psychological organization has sanctioned a diagnosis titled "psychopathy", assessments of psychopathic characteristics are widely used in criminal justice settings and have important consequences for individuals assessed as psychopathic.
The PCL-R provides a total score that indicates how closely the test subject matches the score that a classic or protoypical psychopath would rate. Each item is given a score of 0, 1, or 2 based on how well it applies to the subject being tested. People with no criminal background normally score around a 5. A psychopath would score 25 or more. (A score of 75%)

Psychopathic disorders have three distinct and observable characteristics.
(1) Boldness. Low fear, including stress-tolerance, toleration of unfamiliarity and danger, and high self-confidence and social assertiveness. Psychopaths are notorious for their lack of fear.
(2) Dis-inhibition. Poor impulse control, including problems with planning and foresight, lacking affect and urge control, demand for immediate gratification, and poor behavioral restraints.
(3) Meanness. Lacking empathy and close attachments with others, disdain of close attachments, use of cruelty to gain empowerment, exploitative tendencies, defiance of authority, and destructive excitement seeking.

PCL-R Checklist : Rate test subject with a score of 0, 1, or 2 for each item. Score zero if it does not apply. Score one if it somewhat applies. Score two if it fully applies.

1.
– smooth-talking, engaging and slick.

2.
– greatly inflated idea of one’s abilities and self-esteem, arrogance and a sense of superiority.

3.
– shrewd, crafty, sly, clever, deceptive, deceitful, underhanded and unscrupulous .

4.
– uses deceit and deception to cheat others for personal gain.

5.
- no feelings or concern for losses, pain and suffering of others, cold-hearted and un-empathetic.

6.
– limited range or depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness.

7.
– a lack of feelings toward others; cold, contemptuous and inconsiderate.

8.
– denial of responsibility and attempts to manipulate others.

9.
– an excessive need for new, exciting stimulation and risk-taking.

10.
– Intentional, manipulative, selfish and exploitative financial dependence on others.

11.
– expressions of negative feelings, verbal abuse and inappropriate expressions of anger.

12.
– inability or constant failure to develop and accomplish long-term plans.

13.
– behaviors lacking reflection or planning and done without considering consequences.

14.
– repeated failure to fulfill or honor commitments and obligations.

15.
– brief, superficial relations, numerous affairs and an indiscriminate choice of sexual partners.

16.
– lack of commitment to a long-term relationship.

17.
– diversity of criminal offenses, whether or not the individual has been arrested or convicted.

Now who do you think this profile describes?

In my last post to this topic, that list perfectly describes Donald Trump. I am definitely not one of his supporters. I hope that he gets impeached and all of his cronies wind up behind bars where they belong, but that ain't going to happen because he is going to pardon them all. Sad state of affairs.

For another ironic thing going on in the Philippines, have you heard about the case against President Duterte's own son? He is linked to a drug ring that has made 125 million dollars from the sale of methamphetamine. Uhhhhh, is it me, or what is going on here?????? More than 11,000 other Filipinos have been murdered in the streets for being allegedly associated with USING drugs.....not sales....USE of. They had no arrest, not trial, nothing....plain old MURDERED in the street by Duterte's men.
But his son gets a case against him? Wahahahahahahahah...... we all know that nothing will ever become of that.

Now that is IRONY, ain't it?

cheryz,

I have to admit that there is a sense of vulnerability to everyone living in the Philippines because of the extrajudicial killings under the Duterte administration, and everyone there is at risk of being murdered.
The reason I say this is because if a dead body is found with a note on it that the dead person was a drug user or drug dealer, then there is no investigation into the death or who did it.

If somebody has a vendetta against some person, and they kill them or have them killed, then all that needs done is to pin a note on the body claiming the deceased is a drug user. What kind of society would continue to allow this sort of behavior? Murder is legal in the Philippines, as long as the killer pins a note on the dead person....no investigation follows. This is insane! And EVERYBODY there is at risk of being murdered.
