Cheyanne's Campsite ...Where The Money Meets The Rubber of The Spirited Road in America Today !!: America has Battered Wife Syndrome. Or, in this case, do we call it Battered Citizen Syndrome?=== You know the script: “All’s forgiven. Again. But look how good he’s being! We’re pretty sure he’ll be better from now on. He promised there won’t be a next time. He’s actually a really nice guy. He didn’t mean it. He kind of apologized. It was an open fist. He really does care about us. We’re stuck with him. It’s better to work with him than against him. If we treat him nicely he won’t hurt us. We have no where else to go anyway.” Sound familiar?
