This "genius" is very unstable.

A Warning': Trump Is Stupid, Crazy and Dangerous | DCReport.org

The following is an essay from the New York Times by Matt Flegenheir.  

"President Trump’s self-assessment has been consistent.

“I’m, like, a very smart person,” he assured voters in 2016.
“A very stable genius,” he ruled two years later.

“I’m not a doctor,” he allowed on Thursday, pointing to his skull inside the White House briefing room, “but I’m, like, a person that has a good you-know-what.”

Mr. Trump’s performance that evening, when he suggested that injections of disinfectants into the human body could help combat the coronavirus, did not sound like the work of a doctor, a genius, or a person with a good you-know-what.

Even by the turbulent standards of this president, his musings on virus remedies have landed with uncommon force, drawing widespread condemnation as dangerous to the health of Americans and inspiring a near-universal alarm that many of his past remarks — whether offensive or fear-mongering or simply untrue — did not.

Mr. Trump’s typical name-calling can be recast to receptive audiences as mere “counterpunching.” His impeachment was explained away as the dastardly opus of overreaching Democrats. It is more difficult to insist that the man floating disinfectant injection knows what he’s doing.

The reaction has so rattled the president’s allies and advisers that he was compelled over the weekend to remove himself from the pandemic briefings entirely, at least temporarily accepting two fates he loathes: giving in to advice (from Republicans who said the appearances did far more harm than good to his political standing) and surrendering the mass viewership he relishes.

Some at the White House have expressed frustration that the issue has lingered. “It bothers me that this is still in the news cycle,” Dr. Deborah Birx, the coronavirus response coordinator, told CNN on Sunday, adding, “I worry that we don’t get the information to the American people that they need, when we continue to bring up something that was from Thursday night.”

Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland, a Republican who has been willing to speak skeptically about Mr. Trump’s virus leadership, said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that it “does send a wrong message” when misinformation spreads from a public official or “you just say something that pops in your head.” Asked to explain the president’s words, Mr. Hogan said, “You know, I can’t really explain it.”

No modern American politician can match Mr. Trump’s record of false or illogical statements, which has invited questions about his intelligence. Insinuations and gaffes have trailed former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dan Quayle and Joseph R. Biden Jr., now the presumptive Democratic nominee, among many others. But Mr. Trump’s stark pronouncement — on live television, amid a grave public health crisis, and leaving little room for interpretation — was at once in a class of its own and wholly consistent with a reputation for carelessness in speech.
Still, for weeks, the president’s political team has been strikingly explicit about its intended messaging against Mr. Biden: presenting him as a doddering 77-year-old not up to the rigors of the office — and setting off on the kind of whisper campaign that does not bother with whispers.
A Trump campaign Twitter account on Saturday celebrated the anniversary of Mr. Biden’s 2020 bid by highlighting all that he had “forgotten” as a candidate, with corresponding video clips of momentary flubs and verbal stumbles: “Joe Biden forgot the name of the coronavirus.” “Joe Biden forgot the G7 was not the G8.” “Joe Biden forgot Super Tuesday was on a Tuesday.”

On Sunday, the Trump campaign made clear that the disinfectant affair would not disrupt its plans. “Joe Biden is often lost,” said Tim Murtaugh, a Trump campaign spokesman, “losing his train of thought during friendly interviews, even when he relies on written notes in front of him.”

T.J. Ducklo, a Biden spokesman, called this approach “a distraction tactic — as if anything could erase the memory of the president suggesting people drink disinfectant on national television.”
Carlos Curbelo, a Republican former Florida congressman who clashed at times with Mr. Trump and did not vote for him, said the president’s comments on disinfectants were likely to resonate precisely because he was running a race premised largely on Mr. Biden’s mental capacity.

“Given Joe Biden’s gaffes and mistakes, I think the Trump campaign had a strong narrative there,” he said. “At the very least, that advantage was completely erased.”
Mr. Curbelo said a friend had suggested recently that Mr. Trump’s toxic virus idea was “the craziest thing he ever said.”

“I said, ‘I don’t know,’” Mr. Curbelo recalled. “‘Maybe. I’d have to look back and check.’”

This history, of course, is the argument for Democratic caution. The list of episodes that were supposed to end Mr. Trump — the “Access Hollywood” tape, the “very fine people” on both sides of a white supremacist rally, insulting John McCain’s service as a prisoner of war — is longer than most voters’ memories.

The president can register as more time-bending than Teflon. Plenty sticks to him; it just tends to be buried quickly enough by the next stack of outrages, limiting the exposure of any single one.
But if most Trump admirers have long since made up their minds about him, recent polling on his handling of the crisis does suggest some measure of electoral risk. Governors and public health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci are viewed as far more trustworthy on the pandemic, according to surveys.

Lily Adams, a former aide on the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris, who is now advising Unite the Country, a pro-Biden super PAC, said that swing voters in focus groups were especially dismayed at Mr. Trump’s refusal to listen to experts.
“Any person who has ever done a load of laundry, or installed a childproof lock on a cleaning supplies cabinet, or just looked at one of those skulls on the label, knows it’s an idiotic idea,” she said.

Even some of the president’s reliable cheerleaders at Fox News have not tried to defend him. And recent visitors to the Drudge Report — the powerful conservative news aggregation site whose proprietor, Matt Drudge, has increasingly ridiculed Mr. Trump of late — were greeted with a doctored image of “Clorox Chewables.” “Trump Recommended,” the tagline read. “Don’t Die Maybe!”

For Mr. Trump, such mockery tends to singe. Since long before his 2016 campaign, few subjects have been as meaningful to him as appraisals of his intellect.

It is a source of perpetual obsession and manifest insecurity, former aides say, so much so that Mr. Trump has felt the need to allude to his brainpower regularly: tales of his academic credentials at the University of Pennsylvania; his “natural ability” in complicated disciplines; his connection to a “super genius” uncle, an engineer who taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
When Rex Tillerson, the president’s first secretary of state, was reported to have called Mr. Trump a “moron” in private — one of several former senior administration officials said to have rendered equivalent verdicts — Mr. Trump challenged him to “compare I.Q. tests.” A favorite Trump insult on Twitter, reserved for Mr. Biden among others, is “low I.Q. individual.”

“He doesn’t want to feel like anybody is better than he is,” said Barbara A. Res, a former executive vice president of the Trump Organization, who recalled Mr. Trump bragging about his college grades. “He can’t deal with that. I can see it now with the doctors, and that’s why he dismisses them. He used to be intimidated by lawyers. Anyone who knows more than he does makes him feel less than he is.”
Steve Schmidt, a former Republican strategist and prominent Trump critic, said the president’s meditation on disinfectants stood apart from a trope that Mr. Schmidt came to recognize as an adviser to conservatives like Mr. Bush: “that the conservative candidate in the race was also always portrayed as the dumb candidate.”

“But a caricature is distinct from a narrative,” Mr. Schmidt said. And Mr. Trump’s reckless medical fare, he reasoned, had given adversaries a narrative by confirming a caricature.

The president’s own attempts at damage control have been scattershot. First, his new press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, accused the news media of taking Mr. Trump out of context. Shortly afterward, he undercut her case by saying his comments had in fact been a sarcastic prank on reporters, an explanation even some supporters found implausible.

He left his Friday briefing on the coronavirus without taking questions. By Saturday, when Mr. Trump tweeted that the events were “not worth the time & effort,” his opponents conceded this much:
The president had probably done something smart." [Source]

"I'm like a very smart person"

Mr. trump, how smart can you be if you don't know that the prestigious Swedish prize awarded annually to outstanding individuals in various fields is spelled, Nobel, after the person for which it is named, and not Noble? 

He will never get one ( a Nobel prize) now for sure. Not that they were going to give him one in the first place.

Just another reason to hate Obama.

https://www.alternet.org/2020/04/trump-was-given-more-than-a-dozen-secret-briefings-on-the-coronavirus-threat-early-on-report/

"According to the Post, Trump seems to have somehow missed the “more than a dozen” briefings placed in his President’s Daily Brief (PDB), which covered the wide range of political, economic, and public health crises that a global pandemic might create. This isn’t a single session with the Centers for Disease Control, but a prolonged attempt by many in the government, worried about issues of national security, to try and impart crucial information to the dumbest man to have this much power in the history of the world."

A longstanding Trump tactic has been that whatever fault or flaw he has, he tells lies to make it seem like his opponent is even worse on that account. Or at any rate, just as bad. He cannot build himself up, so his only option is to drag his opponents down by defaming them.

However, trying to paint himself as “the smart one” by comparison to Biden, through pointing out Biden’s various gaffes, was never going to work. Biden is a poor public speaker; he always has been. But I think people can tell the difference between misspeaking, like Biden has a habit of doing, and being a complete idiot.

Trump is self-evidently an idiot. What financial success Trump’s had has come from a huge inheritance from his dad and from a total lack of ethics, not a prodigious intellect. He is not a smart man, and cannot even pretend to be — except to his most hardcore followers, who are even dumber than he is.

Yup, I know exactly what. A voting base of infinitely reprogrammable meatbags who are so addicted to the propaganda they consume that they don't care if this hour's lie completely contradicts last hour's lie just as long as it arrives in time to keep their entire worldview from collapsing and forcing them to face the hideous truth that the liberals have been right all along.

They would rather die than face up to that, and that is what they've been doing all along anyway (~15K/year mostly Pig People in Republican controlled states that refused to expand Medicaid under the ACA) so it's not as shocking to them as we surpass a Vietnam war's worth of dead in six weeks as it is to the sane people who haven't been voting for candidates who overtly try to kill them for twenty years.

When Patrick said that there are more important things than living, that's what he was talking about, escaping a reckoning for the brown firehose of bullshit they have been spewing to their idiot followers since at least 1994.

Harvard professor Ken Rogoff has a book called The Curse of Cash, which calls for the complete elimination of cash. Many Bitcoin groupies say the same thing. Central banks and the IMF are all working on new digital currencies today.
The reasons for this are said to include attacks on tax evasion, terrorism and criminal activity. There’s some truth to these claims. Cash is anonymous, so it can’t be tracked.
But the real reason is because the elimination of cash would allow elites to impose negative interest rates, account freezes and confiscation.
They can’t do that as long as you can go to your bank and withdraw your cash. That’s the key.
In other words, it’s much easier for them to control your money if they first herd you into a digital cattle pen. That’s their true objective and all the other reasons are just a smokescreen.
And now, predictably, the latest attack on cash comes courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic.

So you think making money and IQ are closely related - not so.

Trump's billions exist only on paper and in Trump's imagination. If Trump has so much money, why is he borrowing so much money from foreign banks?

And Trump's current money if he truly has any left came from the money he inherited from his father.

Trump has declared bankruptcy at leas three times. That doesn't seem like the behavior of a smart businessman.

Look at the list of failing businesses he started. https://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-businesses-failures-successes-2016-10

"So you think making money and IQ are closely related - not so."

Income and IQ are correlated. In general, people with higher IQs make more money.

Of course there are lots of other factors - circumstance, parenting, education, training, work ethic, appetite for risk-taking, ambition, aggression, and luck.

This is why the correlation is only moderate, but it's there.

There is much less of a correlation between wealth and IQ. You can inherit wealth directly, but you cannot inherit income directly (most of the time).

Six times. Business genius declares bankrupcy 6 times and refuses to release his tax returns. This is the same crowd that thinks Tucker Carlson is smart.

Um, okayyyyy.

It’s bizarre for wingnuts to somehow be drawing comfort from a Michael Moore documentary.

From the sound of it, Michael Moore isn’t arguing that the battle against climate change is already lost, so hey, why not all drive SUVs and fire up the coal-burning power plants. Hell yeah! Trash the planet! Who cares?

Moore is actually arguing that the Left isn’t demanding change that is radical enough. So the solution is, I guess, instituting socialism and abandoning all technology? Returning to living in thatched huts, making our own clothes, and driving horses and buggies?

Basically, the movie doesn’t support anything Andrew Bolt believes. It promotes eco-extremism — the exact opposite of the wingnut “climate change is a hoax” point of view.

Good point, Ralph. I stand corrected. I should have said there was only a mild correlation between IQ and wealth. Many people with high IQ scores have no desire to accumulate wealth. And many who are wealthy accumulated their wealth through unethical means or dumb luck.

Ralph said...

There is less correlation between IQ and wealth than IQ and income because its easier to inherit money than it is genius.

The descendants of a smart guy who makes a fortune are likely to regress toward the mean of IQ. Plus children of wealth are often less driven to succeed. This is why family fortunes are usually squandered.

Trump actually grew his inheritance significantly. This doesn't mean he's a genius, but he was smart enough not to blow it.

Yes.

I really have to wonder if these meat processing plants could have done more at the outset to change the working conditions in order to reduce virus transmission, and then maybe they wouldn't now all be having outbreaks that force them to close.

It's unconscionable for Trump to just order people to risk death, or else lose their jobs, without making any effort to try to make their jobs safer. Then again, people who work at meat-processing plants are pretty much all poor and powerless, so their lives are expendable, apparently.

BTW, the people who ate the fish tank cleaner were liberals.

A Fish called Wanda said...

"BTW, the people who ate the fish tank cleaner were liberals."

And they are back in the news today:

"The Mesa City Police Department's homicide division is investigating the death of Gary Lenius, the Arizona man whose wife served him soda mixed with fish tank cleaner in what she claimed was a bid to fend off the coronavirus. A detective handling the case confirmed the investigation to the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday after requesting a recording of the Free Beacon's interviews with Lenius's wife, Wanda.

Gary Lenius, 68, died on March 22. Wanda, 61, told several news outlets last month that both she and her husband had ingested a substance used to clean aquariums after hearing President Donald Trump tout one of its ingredients, chloroquine phosphate, from the White House briefing room.

News of the police probe comes after a series of Free Beacon stories raised questions about the portrayal of the couple in the initial NBC News report that vaulted the story onto the national stage.

Though that report and others suggested the couple mindlessly followed the president's medical advice to disastrous results, friends of Gary Lenius told the Free Beacon they were skeptical he would knowingly ingest fish tank treatment.

Rather, they described Lenius as a levelheaded retired engineer and recounted a troubled marital relationship that included a previous domestic assault charge against his wife, of which she was ultimately found not guilty. The Free Beacon also reported that Wanda Lenius was a Democratic donor whose most recent contribution went to a "pro-science" super PAC.

"What bothers me about this is that Gary was a very intelligent man, a retired [mechanical] engineer who designed systems for John Deere in Waterloo, Iowa, and I really can't see the scenario where Gary would say, ‘Yes, please, I would love to drink some of that Koi fish tank cleaner,'" one of his close friends told the Free Beacon. "It just doesn't make any sense."

Campaign finance records show that Wanda Lenius has given thousands of dollars to Democratic groups and candidates over the past two years, most recently to the 314 Action Fund. The group bills itself as the "pro-science resistance" and has criticized the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, holding up the Lenius case to slam the White House.

OK, the coincidence of Fergus' order to open meat processing plants, thus shielding them from liability lawsuits with McConnell's "price" to be exacted from any aid to state and local governments tells you just what has come down: Fergus, frantic that the stalled economy will cost him the election, asked his friends who run corporations what they need to open for business again, and they told him "Well, first off, protection from lawsuits from the families of the workers who will die from working in the unsafe conditions."

THE REAL REASON WHY THE POTUS IS FORCING MEAT INDUSTRY TO MAKE COVID WORKERS STAY ON THE JOB:

U.S. Meat Export Federation | Sep 12, 2019

China’s beef imports continue to soar, but obstacles for U.S. beef increase.

Total import duty on U.S. beef is now 47%.

China has solidified its position as the fastest-growing beef import market in the world in 2019, with Oceania and South America the dominant suppliers. Last year, China’s imports topped 1 million metric tons (mt) for the first time at 1.07 million mt, up 50% from 2017, while value climbed 56% to $4.9 billion.

This remarkable rate of growth has further accelerated in 2019, as imports through July


China has solidified its position as the fastest-growing beef import market in the world in 2019, with Oceania and South America the dominant suppliers. Last year, China’s imports topped 1 million metric tons (mt) for the first time at 1.07 million mt, up 50% from 2017, while value climbed 56% to $4.9 billion.

This remarkable rate of growth has further accelerated in 2019, as imports through July already reached 871,429 mt (up 57%), with value up nearly 60% to $4.1 billion. For perspective, China’s full-year imports first topped $1 billion in 2013 and broke the $2 billion mark for the first time in 2019.


As other suppliers scramble to meet China’s surging beef demand, barriers for U.S. beef continue to mount. Since mid-2018, U.S. beef has been subject to a 25% retaliatory duty in China, raising the effective tariff rate to 37%. On Sept. 1, China imposed an additional 10% duty, raising the effective rate to 47% - nearly four times the standard 12% duty imposed on most imported beef.

Huh. Imagine that. Maybe Trump shouldn’t have started a trade war?

That’s probably what ranchers are thinking as they are unable to sell their beef to Americans, either, due to processing plant closures.

And at least thirty women have accused Trump of sexual assault. So I guess you'll be voting third party in November?

You too said...

No one has credibly accused Trump of sexual assault. He is definitely someone who has exhibited boorish behavior and loose talk, but as far as established facts go, he never did anything like Biden is accused of.

Biden's accuser immediately reported his assault, and this has been corroborated by multiple witnesses. There is even a tape of a 1993 interview of her mother by Larry King.

Could it be exaggerated? Perhaps. But just note the contrast to how this woman has been received by the press to how Christine Blasey Ford was with her allegations on Brett Kavanaugh. Ford couldn't even specify the year or the location of her alleged assault, and had zero corroboration from any witnesses. In fact she had negative corroboration, as everyone she said could back her up denied ever being there or hearing anything about it.

You can't say "believe all women" one moment when it's politically convenient and then dismiss someone when it's not the next. Unless you're a democrat.

Politico retracted the entirety of an article published last week reporting that President Donald Trump owed tens of millions to the Bank of China from a real estate deal brokered with the Trump Organization in 2012.

“Politico received a statement from a representative for Bank of China USA, which had not been contacted beforehand, that the bank had sold off, or securitized, its debt shortly after the 2012 deal.” Politico wrote in an editor’s note. “A spokeswoman said the bank has no current financial interest in any Trump Organization properties.”

In Biden's case, there is is corroboration.

Does a 27-year old allegation make a difference in deciding whether Biden is fit to be President? Not to me, but how the media is covering for him shows just how much none of this is about justice or character, it's strictly about power.

Hardly "fake news," just sloppy journalism. Trump (along with his partners) DID borrow quite a lot of money from China. But Politico should have verified that China still held the loan and hadn't already sold it off. I'm guessing they were so eager to get the big scoop that they didn't complete all the necessary fact-checking.

China is still listed on the real estate deal which is open until 2022, so it appears China is full of drumpf grade shit.

Politico changed the headline as soon as China informed them, which they had not done earlier, that they cashed out right away. Politico upheld journalistic standards which stoopid fucking wasicu wasteys, drumpf and fake noize outlets refuse to.

If Trump is tied with Biden in Texas, of all places, then his re-election prospects are well and truly fucked. You can expect him to respond with more smearing of Biden.

Trump started with claims that Biden is corrupt (and Trump then tried to strongarm Ukraine into manufacturing evidence to support those claims), before cycling through videos that suggest Biden is senile.

And now he seems to be going with: “China sent coronavirus to America as part of their evil plan for world domination, and Joe Biden likes China!!!!”

Study: Compared to whites, blacks are 1.75 times more likely to believe that there is no wrong way to make money.

It is a common belief in sociology that the source of our greed is the market. Our economic system turns us into unprincipled money chasers.

If that were the case, then the people most integrated into the market would be the most unprincipled. Compared to whites, blacks are more often at the margins of the system, so they should be more likely to retain the natural, biological desire to earn an honest dollar.

General Social Survey respondents were asked if they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: "To make money, there are no right and wrong ways any more, only easy and hard ways."

Here are the percentages listed by race of those who agreed (sample size = 4,376):

Percent agreeing there is no wrong way to make money

Whites 22.8
Blacks 39.9
Other race 33.3

Blacks are 1.75 times more likely than whites to feel there is no wrong way to make money. This helps explain their greater involvement in illegal money-making.

The hypothesis that is consistent with this data is that integration into the market makes one more honest about how to make money, and the data here contradict the Rousseauian view that innocent human nature is corrupted by social institutions.

Just going by its budget, the federal government looks like an insurance company with an army. Its budgeting process is convoluted and ridiculous because it can be: it can run deficits and borrow in its own currency, so the only time it shuts down is when it wants to shut down.

State and local governments, on the other hand, are required to balance their budgets year to year, and what those budgets mainly fund is the infrastructure of society. Water, sanitation, education, law enforcement, fire fighting, hospitals and EMTs. Stuff like that.

When crises happen, state and local governments are at the same time as they are called upon to shoulder the brunt of the crisis, starved of tax revenue, with no recourse other than cutting essential services to operate within their budget constraints.

Which is why the federal government needs to step up and use some of the massive pile of money they've decided to borrow to underwrite the functioning of state and local governments before they roll the massive layoffs and furloughs out.

I mean, if they really want the economy to work again, that's what they'll do. Also, if the goddamn Republicans want to win an election again anywhere ever, they'll quit playing stupid games and provide the funding that will keep the trash pickups happening and the sewers working.

The partisan breakdown of this issue at the state level will almost certainly ensure that this happens because the red states operate mostly, or for some, exclusively, on sales taxes, which are taking a much more significant hit right now than the income taxes that tend to fund the bluer states, so Mitch will no-doubt be hearing from Florida and Texas about this in the very near future, if he hasn't already.

The Chinese are excelling over Americans in Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing.
Such a threat that universities tried to hatch a scheme to make admission criteria based in part on their "personality" which in itself is a laughable joke because everyone knows that a person's personality is subjective. Of course they sued.

I see a quiet takeover of America being sold out from underneath Americans to the highest bidder and it looks like CHINA is up for the grabs.

Americans spent 50 years moving their factories and industries to China for cheap labor to avoid American labor laws, and fair wages etc.

Now the Chinese are buying up historically American icons and Companies (Smithfield Meats, and AMC Theaters just to name a few) and also buying up American farm land from children of farmers that don't want to be farmers like their parents . Farms consisting of thousands and thousands of acres across the country are owned by China.

Some states have no laws in place to protect land from being purchased by foreign entities.
...and they call themselves the 'United States." HARDLY

Those that claim to be patriotic and loyal to America are long gone and never to return. One would argue that the only thing corporate giants and politicians worship is the "ALMIGHTY DOLLAR."

They pledge allegiance to $$$$$$

~Selling off your American soil (thousands upon thousands of acres of American farm land) have been sold and continue to sold to foreign entities (without government limitations.).

~Historically American meat plants (such as Smithfield), farms and historically known American brands sold to the Chinese.

~Taking loans from foreign enemies and potentially being blackmailed, thus putting national security at risk.

And you think that "rednecks and working class whites" are your biggest threat?

...Then I've got a candidate to sell you in Joe Biden.

Trump is the only politician in a half century who has pushed back against the globalist agenda of selling off American jobs and resources and driving down wages for the benefit of corporations. He's the first President in 40 years not to start a war.

Wall Street has supported Democrats for the last 30 years. Trump has at least slowed the transfer of wealth from the bottom 95% to the top 5%. Put the dems back in power and we'll go back to business as usual.

Guess again. The facts say otherwise. Here are two websites for you to review.

No one is forced to deal with anyone. Well even if you did that you're still 4 times more likely to be assaulted violently by a fellow white than a Blah person so it wouldn't do much to keep you safe. But hey, keep on racisting.

Desegregation
Affirmative Action
Racial quotas

Well, yes in a free society it's not legal to discriminate but I'm sure you can find a way to self-segregate. Or you can move to Iceland. See ya.

Wyoming is nice, is much closer, and I've heard it's pretty white. LOL!

Just kidding, Pilot.

If it's not legal to choose who you interact with, then it's not really a free society, is it?

I have no current plans or desire to "self-segregate", but if I chose to, I'd be prosecuted by the 'free' society we live in.

"If it's not legal to choose who you interact with, then it's not really a free society, is it?"

Wait, you don't choose with whom you interact? Wow, sounds like a personal problem. Maybe you shouldn't have committed a crime and you wouldn't be locked up.😂

W. Virginia sounds like more to his liking. And I hear they don't have manditory negro interaction laws either. 😂

"Being willfully obtuse is a bad look."

Um, so you're being forced to interact with negroes? Really? And a country that segregated its inhabitants by race is a free country. Your ideology is very interesting, insane but interesting.😂 Good luck dodging all the negroes being launched at you.😆

The General Social Survey is a U. of Chicago thing.  It's astonishing that someone who claims to have been in academia doesn't know this.  Or perhaps you knew it once, but senile memory loss y'know....

"The General Social Survey is a U. of Chicago thing."

And it only took you two days to find a "study" that is even close to what you allege.😂😂 Sure kid, EVERYONE knows the general society survey. 😆😆

PilotX said...

See Gambler, they do "surveys". He didn't post the specific data that showed what he alleged but just general information about the organization that does "surveys". 😂😂

Soooooooo, this is the superior mind at work.😂😂😂

Still not Gordon Gekko said...

I didn't post anything about the specific survey questions because I'm not the Gordon Gekko who posted above.  What part of "Not Gordon Gekko" didn't you understand?  That's an even bigger fail than not having the brainpower to type "General Social Survey" into a search engine.  And you think you are the one with a superior mind....

You truly have toxic levels of self-esteem, none of it justified.

PilotX said...

Um, so you posted a "general survey" that didn't answer a question you weren't asked while lobbing insults. Uh, ok. Carry on.

A country that doesn't disallow its inhabitants to segregate by whatever criteria they choose is a free country.

PilotX said...

"A country that doesn't disallow its inhabitants to segregate by whatever criteria they choose is a free country."

You are free to segregate yourself as much as you want. There are several anons here that segregate themselves. I could introduce you to them so you can learn how to do it but you guys choose to remain anonymous. Darn. Oh well, maybe you're smart enough to learn on your own.

Still not Gordon Gekko said...

"Um, so you posted a "general survey" that didn't answer a question you weren't asked"

Wrong.  Gambler2 asked "Gordon, how about telling us who did this study under what conditions? Also a source where we could look up the study details, methodology, and credentials of the researcher who conducted the study would be necessary in order to evaluate validity of the conclusions."  http://www.gss.norc.org/ is where those answers will be.

"while lobbing insults."

I got this from Gordon Gekko's post where he said "General Social Survey respondents".  That's enough to tell anyone who can pay attention what to go looking for.  Yet Gambler2 was STILL clueless.  She's not reading for comprehension, and neither are you.  You both have to have the bleeding obvious explained to you like little children.

My answer was not directed to you, unless you have somehow become a retired university employee.  Why did you even respond?  Do you just like to see your words on the screen?  That fits with black narcissism.

PilotX said...

Yes, Gambler asked Gordon Gekko a question. You stated you are not Gordon Gekko. Sooooooooooooooo why did you even respond? Do you just like seeing your words on the screen? That fits with white male narcissism.

Still not Gordon Gekko said...

"Sooooooooooooooo why did you even respond?"

Because Gambler2 asked, and I already knew how to find the answer.  She should have known that answer already or had no trouble finding it herself, which is why I mocked her for her ignorance.

And I wanted to see just what you'd do if somebody actually gave you what you asked for.  She's silent and you're being an asshole.  Some gratitude.

The General Social Survey, University of Chicago Is not something a person living across the country would readily recognize, especially when the reader is not a sociologist. However, it is customary to post sources when citing a study if you want to be taken seriously. Blaming me for Gordon Gekko's failure to follow custom is ludicrous.

So that's what you do - mock someone for asking another to follow standard protocol? This is typical of right-wingers. They tend to blame others for their own shortcomings.

As for my ignorance, I will make you a bet that I have learned more than you will ever learn even if you live to be a hundred.

Hey, Not Gordon, I was silent last night because I was watching The Last Kingdom on Netflix. I am an fan of British history. But although silent last night, as you can see I'm up and running this morning!

Bonus Quote of the Day

May 1, 2020 at 9:45 am EDT By Taegan Goddard 63 Comments

“From the very beginning, this administration made the decision that there was no legitimate role for the federal government to play in responding to this crisis. It wasn’t an accident they didn’t request any money in the early days. They really believed, as they believe today, that this is a problem states and local governments should confront.”

— Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), quoted by Vox, on the coronavirus pandemic.
-----------------
Our country has been invaded by the CV19 virus. Is it not the first duty of the president of the United States to protect the people of the country, even if the invasion does not involve troops or bombs? Trump's behavior in the face of this crisis is the worst dereliction of duty by an American president in the history of the United States. Only woodrow Wilison's failure to act during the Spanish Fly pandemic in 1918 comes even close.

Here are some of comments coming from Trump and his administration regarding the pandemic:

A. "We are not a shipping clerk."
B. "The notion of the federal stockpile was it's supposed to be our stockpile. It's not supposed to be states' stockpiles that they then use."
C. “We started off with an empty shelf,” “We didn’t have very much in terms of medical product."

So we are not one country in the eyes of Trump and his minions We are red states who support him and blue states that do not.

We are on our own, folks. Thank God for the Governors who have stepped up to the task and acted responsibly.
Vote straight blue right down the ticket in November. Vote these son of a bitches out.

PilotX said...

Conservatives want to dismantle the federal government so I guess we as states might just be on our own. Forget the fact that a "national emergency" means just that. We don't leave Florida on its own when hurricans hit or California when earthquakes or Oklahoma when tornadoes hit. Reagan started this shit and it should end now.
