“The Idiots are getting far too big
a Voice in Social media.” ~ Joe Tessitore, ESPN
Sad but true. I have already written a few pieces criticizing the use and abuse of social media (especially facebook) and a few Op-Eds about the psychological damage caused by it on the populace in general. It is as if you can spit in someone’e eye without any fear of retribution whatsoever. Almost a pseudo-attitude of pure narcissism.
There are a few online tests which can be used for a somewhat eye-opening purpose if you or someone you know may be dealing with a psychopathic condition or a degree of narcissism which could be classified as “unhealthy.”

My intent in writing this blog piece is NOT to stir the pot or make back-handed criticism, rather, I hope that people might consider looking at themselves a little clearer. Sometimes we cannot see ourselves when we have strayed afar from our original personalities and it takes a “Friend” to jog a person back on track. Please scroll back and see the blog entries which I had begun using upon this same theme starting in April of this year 2015. Nothing particularly earth-shattering – except that to the people to whom it regards and consequently offends.
Sorry about that, Chief.
