Pavlovian or classical conditioning refers to a learning procedure in which a biologically potent stimulus (the greater evil, a/k/a Donald Trump, or el Donald) is paired with a previously neutral stimulus (elections). It also refers to the learning process that results from this pairing, through which the neutral stimulus comes to elicit a response (voting for Hillary Clinton) that is usually similar to the one elicited by the potent stimulus. This was studied in detail by Ivan Pavlov through experiments with dogs.
El Donald was a lifelong Democrat until 2009 and after a rather long conversation with fellow pervert William (“a/k/a” El Bill) Jefferson Clinton, he announced his candidacy as a Republican, and then proceeded to do a reality show impersonation of a candidate, making wilder and more ridiculous pronouncements by the minute in order NOT to be elected. However, because of the ongoing problems with human nature, he has run a very tight race with La Clinton, or La Hillary, because of the aforesaid Pavlov reflex.
All of you lovely people who are voting or have voted for La Hillary are salivating like the Canis studied by our friend Pavlov (another Russian!) and you will forgive me for telling you that a) if La Hillary is elected or crowned, and b) declares war on Russia or c) bombs someplace within 100 days of her term and d) sacks Social Security and any other number of sundry disasters, you are NOT to complain, here on Facebook or elsewhere. You stood still while the DNC cheated and tore apart the electoral process, continued with business as usual, and you have shown that you salivate whenever you are properly stimulated, à la Pavlov, by the corporate mass media. I, in the meantime, have cast my vote for the Green Party, and when the country finishes going to hell or we are in the throes of another war, don’t come to me to complain.
This has been a public service message and a test of the emergency broadcast system. Silvia out.
