Why can’t sociopaths see consequences that any of the rest of us could? Let’s ask Chris Lee and Heidi Jones

Married GOP Congressman Sent Sexy Pictures to Craigslist Babe

“. . . i’m a very fit fun classy guy”

[I tell ya, personally, I, PW, put my foot down and told my mistresses that we were just going to stick to the blue light special at Kmarts, none of this high tech stuff.  Am I smart or what?  . . .  Oh my god, did I just write that down?!! . . . Just entertaining the readers, dear. . . .  Put down that frying pan! . . .  Aaaaaaah!]

Back to the post at hand [Just checking who’s paying attention.  . . .  yeah, that’s the ticket!], Chris Lee also failed to follow his own advice.

Craigslist Congressman warned teens about dangers of the internet

“. . . responding to what may seem like a friendly e-mail or an appealing marketing offer can have serious consequences. Private information and images can so easily be transmitted to friends and strangers alike.”

Oops, that’s two sociopathic thinking pattern flags for our Chris Lee.  Public positions and statements have nothing to do with a sociopath’s life.  It’s not even hypocrisy, it’s their nature.  Words are lifetools for them, to be used strategically and politically, not as an expression of themselves or any serious truths (which don’t exist in their world).

UPDATE: The Craigslist Congressman and the Crossdressing Prostitute.  According to Gawker, Chris Lee was also interested in “passable TS/CD”s (transsexual crossdressers).

Sociopaths are pansexual for the same reason they seek multiple partners (often hundreds, sometimes thousands) — sheer boredom.  The act of sex means no more to them emotionally than sex with an inflatable doll would mean to us.

WABC-TV weatherwoman Heidi Jones told cops, even NYPD Commish Ray Kelly, fib to get protection

WABC-TV weatherwoman Heidi Jones was given ’round-the-clock protection by NYPD detectives before fessing up to sending cops on a wild-goose chase for her phony Central Park attacker, a police source said.

WABC-TV’s Heidi Jones suspended after filing phony cop report on Central Park attack

WABC-TV weather forecaster Heidi Jones was suspended Wednesday for filing a bogus police report about a phony stalker and a Central Park assault.

So why?  I think the answer is simply that consequences are those boring things grownups are always talking aboutSociopaths want what they want, when they want it, just like all babies.  It’s just one more trait of their arrested development and lack of psychological development.  Stupidity is not the issue, IQs can still be quite high.

One thought on “Why can’t sociopaths see consequences that any of the rest of us could? Let’s ask Chris Lee and Heidi Jones

  1. Or, we could ask Dr. Milton Wolf, a Kansas radiologist and U.S. Senate candidate. (Read the story and watch the journalist’s interview with Wolf here: http://cjonline.com/news/state/2014-02-22/doctors-x-ray-postings-unsettling)

    Some time prior to his Senate campaign, Wolf had uploaded a series of graphic x-rays of gunshot fatalities and other injuries to his Facebook page and, along with others, made mocking fun of the victims. Among the x-rays was one of a patient who had been decapitated by gunfire. About this fatality, Wolf wrote, “One of my all-time favorites… From my residency days there was a pretty active ‘knife and gun club’ at Truman Medical Center. What kind of gun blows somebody’s head completely off? I’ve got to get one of those…” and the even more chilling—if that’s possible—“It reminds (me) of the scene from ‘Terminator 2’ when they shoot the liquid metal terminator guy in the face at close range and it kind of splits him open temporarily almost like a flower blooming. We all find beauty in different things.”

    During the interview, Wolf said, “You know, there are real consequences to some of the evil out there in the world and some of the tragedies that are out there in the world. Do you think there would be so many of these tragedies if people saw the consequences of them?” But seeing the consequences apparently didn’t deter Wolf from wanting a shotgun of his own capable of blowing someone’s head off. (And note Wolf’s bizarrely evasive answers to Tim Carpenter’s questions in the video.)

    Wolf has tried to sidestep the negative attention by claiming the media fracas is merely his political opponent’s attempt at character assassination: “The attack will not only target me…but will, through its implications, cast a wider net to vilify all doctors.” Oh, really?

    A spokesperson from one of the medical centers involved said that what Wolf did was not a violation of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), a collection of rules that, among other things, protect the privacy and security of individually identifiable health information. I looked through HIPAA’s definition of protected health information and found that appropriately de-identified health information is in fact not protected, and, according to the Federal Register, “[A]ny inadvertent or unauthorized use or disclosure of such information will not be considered a breach for purposes of this subpart. [74 Federal Register 42743]” I’ll be interested in seeing what an ethics committee would conclude, however, because Wolf nevertheless has demonstrated an egregious lack of professional judgment. (And I’m wondering a bit about Melissa Ring-Pessen, too.)

    I suspect Wolf carefully ensured that he adhered to the letter of the law while blatantly sneering at its spirit, imagining all the while that he wasn’t revealing what he really was. When called on his gruesome display, he said, “It’s an educational thing for people…I take my charge of being a doctor very seriously.” Juxtapose this with his comments above and come to your own conclusion.

    Oh, and his book is titled “First, Do No Harm: The President’s Cousin Explains Why His Hippocratic Oath Requires Him to Oppose ObamaCare.”
