Trump General Discussion III

I think a lot of the bad grammar and misspellings in what appears to be a disproportionate amount of Trump supporters -- here and elsewhere -- is an indicator of an education system that has failed to give critical thinking skills and a basic knowledge to many students, and this combined with economic insecurity, makes them especially susceptible to an authoritarian demoagogue like Trump.

As I typed this, the news I have on was replaying his speech trashing Ben Carson -- he like hit his mother with a hammer and tried to stab his friend but hit his belt -- and Trump is all "I'm wearing a belt" and "how stupid are the people of Iowa?"

Now, Carson, who himself admitted he had no preparation whatsoever to do anything at all in government, is in charge of HUD.

It's all beyond logic.

Not really when you think about how Ben Carson is black, so he surely knows something about urban things, no?

The job market has shifted. You can't just go backwards because going forwards is scary. If you think there are no jobs, why did you go to college instead of technical school?

There is no "turning around" it's turning backwards, and then what?

Good thing we didn't elect Crooked Hillary and her clearly defined infrastructure plan, and went for the tax cut plan instead. I hear it's gonna be great!

If he turns out to be as laissez-faire as he is claiming, you might see more money put into corporate research and development. That's about the most we can hope for. People with aristocratic stocks will be happy as well, I imagine.

Ben Carson would be the first HUD Secretary to actually grow up in government housing. I wouldn't be quick to underestimate him in what typically the throwaway cabinet position.

I just have mixed opinions of him as an individual. He's obviously very capable. I don't doubt his ability. Much like Trump, I doubt his judgment. Though, Carson is less emotionally driven. He's much gentler and less egotistical. Despite him spewing garbage, I feel he can be rationalized with, and isn't susceptible to ego manipulation.

I also just have a total lack of respect for someone who runs just to sell a book, claims he's my suitable for any of those positions, and then takes one.

Last week, Boeing CEO criticizes Trump with respect to China.

Except for the fact that he didn't.

You sound like one of them saying that.

I'm tired of political correctness in many facets, but you're not being politically incorrect. You're just being incorrect. There's lots of dumb people that are on your side. It's easy to overlook them because they don't bother you. Having the right view doesn't mean you're intelligent. Having the wrong view might mean you're more likely to be less intelligent, that's true (to a numerically measurable but small degree, and depending upon the context of the view), but I'd venture to say if you go to a vast amount of outlets on the internet you can find folks on the left who are simply unintelligent.

Or if you want me to have responded more appropriately, replace incidences of "intelligence" with "bad grammar/spelling." Excuse me.

I do think it's pretty rich for a guy to be railing on getting all these immigrants out in a post that's riddled with bad English.

just a few weeks ago Ben Carson didn't think that Ben Carson was suitable for any cabinet position.

and Trump has him diagnosed: pathological.
