Tina Gray Russell Wins The WV Democratic Primary...Making History on Today's episode of Backwards & In High Heels!

Interview with Author Sam Ray: We talk Women, COVD-19, Trump, Racism and Narcissism. Tune in!

Traveler, writer, businessperson In the 2000s I found out a very good friend needed rescuing from a bully so I spent 2+ years of full-time studying Cluster B mental disorders to help defeat the sociopath (A term I don’t use lightly). After, I discovered through everyone I spoke with that I had accidentally became an expert on the subject and types of abuse incurred by so many victims like my friend. It still boggles my mind how little society knows about these walking predators who live among us. I have also since discovered that what makes my perspective fairly unique is I was observing the behaviors from the outside but still very close-up & have been very fortunate not to have ever been a prime target of one of these master manipulators. Once my rescue work was completed, I was working on a lifetime project book to explain America to my Euro friends. In 2014, I was forced to realize that the psychology I had studied so deeply also explained so many unanswered questions about American politics, business, failing institutions etc. and since I’m not in the psych profession, I am more free to say things people in the profession can’t or won’t say. My Book - title has a funny story The happy result of merging America's issues with psychology is an updated version & homage to Thomas Paine's "Common Sense", de Tocqueville's "Democracy in America", Mark Twain's "Gilded Age", Machiavelli's "The Prince" & further explains Orwell's 1984. Most other books about America explain the "who", "when" & "where" but this book answers the WHY & HOW stupidity, greed, authoritarianism, lies, evil & Trumpism all come from the same source. "Are All Americans Stupid?": The Unifying Theory Of Stupidity, Greed, Authoritarianism, Lies, Evil & Trumpism $0.00 "Are All Americans Stupid?": The Unifying Theory Of Stupidity, Greed, Au... Most of this book was completed long before Trump's surprise election in 2016 & the strength & power of The Unif... This has been a SAG-AFTRA production.
