I'm 78. I remember my first time at the playground by myself. I'm minding my own activity when I'm approached by what today would be called a bully, "hey, give me your apple; no I say." The next day the same scenario; time passes; I'm bigger and stronger; the apple taker learns to find someone else or develop one or more strategies. A team is formed by the bully to still use physical controls or means of controls are developed that include; verbal abuse, use of control thru other means or tools i. e. you can't ride on my swings or use my slide, unless.
This game played will remain with the bully thru out his life. Blaming a loss, whatever the loss is, on the other who does not play by the bully's rules will remain throughout the bully's life. As an adult he or she learns to use whatever is in his or her command i. e. threaten to talk to the boss, use of equipment to make ones job easier is not available to you. Moving up the job ladder, the bully gets control of amenities as part of the position. The adult bully will always fall back to a blame game i. e. find a George Bush; it's my survival.
Now I ask you do you know anyone who has done this? A little hint he proposed sequester but blames the problems create on the other party. He lives in a house painted white. He states he is for the little guy but his actions and words are to make one pay thru use of Departments of the Federal Government. These agencies are now at his disposal and he uses them to produce regulations, regulations, and regulations; consider Obamacare infancy of thousand pages or so has become 50,000 pages. After all, this individual is probably a multimillionaire and will never experience the needs of someone striving to exist in a changing economy.
Nor in his future will he come in contact with those who are still falling off the ladder of success.
