Why Do Smart People Send Nudes?
Atlantic, by Amanda Mull

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/9/2019 5:12:02 AM

In so many ways, Jeff Bezos isn’t a relatable guy. As the CEO of Amazon, he’s the world’s richest man. He lords over much of the internet’s infrastructure. He turns the municipal governments of America’s largest cities into slavering lapdogs at the prospect of his company’s arrival. In at least one way, though, Bezos is exactly like a huge number of Americans in 2019: On at least a few occasions, he apparently has dashed off explicit texts and some predictably composed nudes to a romantic partner with little apparent regard

First of all, Bezos isn’t the world’s richest man. He just allows we lessers to think so. That right there says volumes about the little creep. Second, he sent pictures of his naughty parts to a woman whose bedroom acting he believed. Now Bezos (owner of the WAPO) is claiming he was blackmailed by the National Enquirer. Know when to shut up, Shorty. Buy yourself a big Montana ranch, build a house in the middle and just shut up.

Pride and arrogance will get you every time. The culture is decaying as we witness when seemingly reasonably intelligent people believe that pictures of their junk will enhance a relationship. Who in their right mind does this when the evidence is clear that nothing you do with your technological devices is private? In the instant it takes to push a button to send, you have opened yourself up to the public. Whether it is through hacking or even having the recipient of the pics of your glorious body decides to share them, you are no longer in control.

For most of us, the price is humiliation and for the rich and famous, it very well may come with a very high cost monetarily. Who does this to themselves? There has to be some deep seated subconscious hatred that drives you to put yourself in jeopardy like this.

The moral to these stories is to turn the camera away from your private parts. Put on some clothes and if you must send a picture, choose one that you would not mind your grandmother viewing. Have some class and respect yourself. Leave the porn shots to the professionals. My goodness, how do you explain such rancid behavior to your children? We lost a lot when shame left the public arena.

Why do you assume someone is smart just because they are rich, or can get elected to office, or can be in an arranged marriage with Hillary´s girl?
By definition, anyone who photographs and sends a picture of their nude body in the current social media environment....is a moron that should not be hired to flip burgers.

Unbridled lust. I believe it is in the same vein as porn addiction. Smart has nothing to do with it. I knew a guy who was in the microchip design industry who lost a job due to viewing porn at work. I can´t fathom it. Anything done on a company computer is the same as having your manager look over your shoulder...

What I would REALLY like to know, as a female, is why "smart" men think "dick pics" of an erect penis are a turn on for woman? Maybe smart and idiotic can co-exist? In any case, rumors abound that the mistress shared these pics with her friends and her brother was the one who leaked them to the Press and eventually the Enquirerer. So Bezos is not only a twerp who is an idiot re: females but also a rotten judge of character.

The Bible says that "there is no temptation that is not common to man." Bezos may be rich and smart but he is a man. Hubris is a powerful trait but can get one into trouble. Shakespeare would love this age. It also doesn´t sound like his mistress has any morals either if she likes the pictures he sends. I think his wife is the lucky one.

So Bezos sends pictures of his naughty bits to a woman he´s not married to but he is in the process of divorcing his wife. Those pictures somehow get hacked from his cell phone and are given to the National Enquirer. The National Enquirer takes the tawdry photos and uses them to blackmail Bezos and make Bezos make his WaPo write an article saying the National Enquirer is not partisan. Because Trump knows the owner of the National Enquirer, it´s Trump´s fault. The press and the Blue Marx House now has a new meme to impeach Trump. Some psychiatrist tells Amanda Mull from Atlantic that sending pictures of your crotch to your mistress is now perfectly normal and that everybody does it.

I used to think that men did this in order to get a picture of the woman naked in return. It´s disgusting! I´ve gotten my fair share as a single woman and I can tell you that some are from what I thought at first were really nice guys. I immediately block all of them on my phone. Yuck!

A friend sent me this article from Commentary Magazine the other day that I think actually explains a lot about this subject and many others.

Zero for all actors and rock stars don´t even count for my blessings. They are just humans like me and if I don´t count to them except that I fork over my money then let´s keep it all business.

Smart in business does not translate to smart in all areas. Bezos may have more money than any one else on this planet but he is still a flawed human and not immune to hubris, narcissism, the lust for power, flawed morals, and in this case thinking through his pogo stick instead of his mind like a lot of other men have done in their lives.

Having a lot of money does not automatically translate into being a superior human being.

The writer of this article has a lot to learn about people.

Is this really that difficult to understand? Let´s start with the eternal basics.

All men are are stupid when it comes to sex. And all women are smart when it comes to sex. Even men who have a great head on their shoulders let the little head below their belt do their thinking for them when it comes to sex. And the little guy takes total control when it rises to speak.

In particular, when a man of Bezos´s age and buttugly looks finally gets a sexually cunning woman to pretend to like his little guy, his little guy wants to send her a "selfie" in appreciation. So Bezos complied.

As for women being smart about sex, is there really any question about that? They know. They know. Billions of dollars spent on cosmetics. Billions of dollars spent on clothing that pushes up, reveals, strategically emphasizes. And lately, trillions of dollars on boob jobs. All for...yup, the little guys out there to stand up and take a look.

Bezos didn´t take those pictures. His little guy did. And for Sanchez...mission accomplished.

I am reminded of so many promising careers ended by Trump hatred: William Kristol, John Podhoretz, Jeff Flake, John McCain, George Will, Eric Erickson, Cal Thomas, Rich Lowry, Ben Shapiro, Mona Charen, Hilary Clinton, Sally Yates, Huma Mahmoud Abedin, Susan Rice, James Comey, McCabe, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, James Baker, Bruce Ohr, and all the #MeToo guys.

State Department email records show that environmental activists who have denied operating as foreign agents in response to congressional inquiries partnered with Obama administration officials to advance climate change policies that were beneficial to China and detrimental to the United States, according to energy policy analysts and attorneys who have reviewed the electronic correspondence. The World Resources Institute, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit devoted to curtailing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainable development, was one of several environmental advocacy groups that received letters from the House Natural Resources Committee in 2018 inquiring about their relationship with China´s government and the impact

9/11 compensation fund to slash

A federal fund created to assist victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will slash payments by at least 50 percent as it struggles to deal with a surge of new claims, officials said Friday. Victims with existing claims will have payments slashed in half while claims filed after Feb. 1 of this year would see deeper cuts of up to 70 percent, they said. September 11th Victim Compensation Fund special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said the fund received a “record number of claims” last year and that she’s “painfully aware of the inequity of the situation.”

And now it’s time for the rest of the story about crooked G-man Andrew McCabe. This is important as we prepare for a weekend of unctuous oohing and ahhing in the alt-left media over the fired FBI director. Sunday night he’ll be treated as a conquering hero on “60 Minutes,” that perennial destination for dodgy Democrats down through the decades. He’ll be portrayed as the greatest lawman since Wyatt Earp, because after becoming the head fed in May 2017 he immediately opened the phony-baloney Russia “investigation” of President Trump. “I was very concerned that I was able

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff. Donald Trump might be crazy. More subtle examples of hypothetical news are: there is “widespread concern on Wall Street” that Donald Trump might fire

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

If there were a state that could educate Americans on politics, and what happens when virtue smacks up against raw political power, you’d have to say it’s Virginia. Illinois is broken. People flee Illinois for the same reason they flee New York: taxes. But they don’t run from Virginia. They gravitate to Northern Virginia, home to some of the wealthiest counties in the country, and all those rich lawyers and lobbyists and journos and politicos and equestrians work in Washington. These are the rulers and the palace guards, the gatekeepers and peddlers of influence. In another age, another place,

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

“The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year. Let’s call the President’s tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%.” — Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), in a tweet, Feb. 11, 2019 Harris, who is running for president in 2020, attacked President Trump’s tax law after the Internal Revenue Service reported that preliminary data shows that the average tax refund check is down 8 percent ($170) this year compared with last year. Boy, talk about a non sequitur that turns out to be nonsensical and misleading.

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
