It is the speed of communication on the Internet—not just the anonymity—that makes it such a dangerous place. Rumors that would have taken weeks to reach the public consciousness in the pre-Internet age can rouse the Twitchfork-wielding rabble in an instant.
There’s a quote attributed to psychology pioneer William James that voices the principle at work here: “there’s nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it.”
That kind of mass-repetition can now happen on social media in a matter of minutes.
Steve travels this beautiful country of ours as a Long Haul Trucker. He stops from place to place and must have quite a bit of free time on his hands to Cyber-Bully. We can see each of these posts are from somewhere out there. Can only stand to reason he must be Long Haul Trucking. Right?
This is just a sampling of what you can find “from the road” as one of Steve’s “Friends” on Facebook and Twitter…
Well folks, this is the house that was found, as a diamond in the rough by the family, not Steve. Situated on the beautiful south side of Kailua Beach, HI. Months of filtering and searching, phone calls, late nights and long days for just the right place with just the right room count, bathroom count, separate accommodations for Steve and Kelly (if they chose) in their own house next to the main house. It was perfect for the group that was intending on going. Under construction, but if you could see the vision of what and where the house was … Continue reading →

You probably know someone, after reading the Narcissist Check List, that will meet some, most, or all of the Criteria on this list. The Muto Family has a number of members that this could be their manifesto.
Narcissist Check List:
Two faced, putting friends and family down behind their backs.
Tendency to blame their lack of success and failures on others.
Sometimes bullying, especially in families, is more covert.
If you call out an adult bully, they reply with incredulity, “I was just asking questions! I can’t believe you took it that way,” putting the blame back on you. And then you start to wonder if you’re the crazy one. Yet even if you turn yourself inside out to try to please the bully, you never will, because bullies thrive on the feeling of instilling fear. Meet one demand and they’ll come up with another.
Accidents between tractor trailers and passenger vehicles are on the rise and so are injuries and fatalities connected with these crashes.
Since many businesses depend on trucking companies to deliver their merchandise to customers, truckers face deadlines for hauling cargo to specific destinations. While most truckers follow the rules of the road in the course of their job, some exhibit bad driving behavior and pose dangerous risks on the highway.
Steve’s Over-the-Top Cursed Hawaiian Vacation “Countdown” has to go down as one of the most ridiculous displays of narcissism ever witnessed.
The time and energy it took to try prove something to everyone, what we don’t know, but it is quite a body of work when you assemble it all into a single list. This took hours mind you. By the way, he did all of with the knowledge of having destroyed the relationships and family vacation that had been worked on so hard by other members of his family.
Recently, I found myself sitting with a patient Elsa, who was crying inconsolably in my office. It turns out that her sister had stolen her inheritance out from under her. It wasn’t the loss of the money that was making her feel so devastated, though; it was the shocking betrayal by her only sibling.
Elsa’s sister Joyce had gotten their dying mother to change her will at the last minute, leaving everything to her. Their mother had been ill for a long time and Joyce had found a way to convince her … Continue reading →
