Human behavior tends to be like water and is drawn to its lowest level and I have a tendency to fall into that trap too.

I think I'll stay away from this thread awhile until you goofballs hash this thing out.


I don’t actually care so much about being right. I’m fine with agreeing to disagree. What annoyed me here was being told that I’d changed my argument when I clearly hadn’t.


I was probably too harsh on you guys, but Haysoos Christo, you guys can gnaw on a bone.

Three is multiple? More like a few. . .

But I suppose we can argue about that too.

Watching Japanese news tonight where the Wolff book is news and one point apparently in the book is that Trump never expected to win, that he only ran to get the Trump name out there. Upon hearing this tonight the penny dropped for both me and my wife. Duh. Thing is, I must have heard this angle before but somehow knowing now - for sure - that he was only running for a goof and whatever PR benefit he'd get, well, the chaos in the WH now makes sense.

Haven’t you heard? The book is all lies. Wolff is a loser and so is Sloppy Steve who cried when he got fired. The President is a very stable genius. Try to keep up. ;)

A magnificent business man too, don't forget that. Not everyone was capable of running casinos the way that he did. ;)

Oh man, this just keeps getting better. He just called a presser at Camp David to talk about how smart he is!

Everybody knows you'd rather sell your sisters into the white slave trade than ever concede you're wrong, Davey. :lol:

As if I care what “everybody” thinks about me. :lol:

The point is, the subject at hand IS of interest. If I want to talk about my personal failings, I’ve got a wife, kids, family and friends for that.

Do you have anything interesting to say about whether Trump is an authoritarian, or are you as dim as you seem?

Pretty sure I said something like that a bunch of times! :lol:

Who the fuck calls a press conference to tell the world how mentally stable they are? Surely that is pretty good indication that someone is barking mad.

And complaining about the Anti Reagan play book? Reagan was fucking gaga for most of his second term at least so that doesn't seem too bright.

But then this guy is a genius.

You ever see this? Sure, I expect some artifice, some phoniness, some scripting but this level surprised me.





Not Bernie!



And Trump … yeah, well it's Trump.
