I didn't have a thought about that at all. My only focus has been on the New York Times airbrushing that paragraph. You have been talking about all kinds of other things in an effort to distract me from the main point. That's because you're a dishonest scumbag.
Guys. TRUTH MATTERS. Absolute. Fucking. Truth. Not 90% truth and 10% lie. Not 95 and 15. Not 99 and 1. 100% truth. Needs to be our goal. Without that as our goal, society will crumble.
Since when did Ben Carson have a first class intellect? I mean ok he became a doctor, but he seems to have shut off the thinking circuits since then.
The takeaway from Trump's first 100 days in office isn't a list of accomplishments or failures but rather a nugget of hard-won knowledge about the president himself: He is so comprehensively ignorant of policy and history, so thoroughly lacking in a core of settled beliefs or convictions, that the Oval Office might as well be unoccupied.
Myth 3: The Country Should Be Run Like a BusinessRelated to the above two myths is the idea that the best person for the presidency is not only a political outsider, but one with experience running a business. Again, this is pretty bizarre. Businesses and governments do very different things to create jobs, providing mandated services is very different from serving voluntary customers for profit, and the federal government can print money and run debts over a very long time period while that might prove fatal to a business. But this, too, was one of Trump's rationales for running for office; he made money in the private sector (at least in some years), so he'd be good for the government's bottom line.If anything, Trump seems, instead, to be importing some of the private sector's worst features, including secrecy, nepotism, self-dealing, and unaccountability. The thrift and efficiency one theoretically needs to survive in the business world are nowhere to be seen. He's spending on personal travel at a rate more than eight times that of his predecessor, who had no business experience.It's too early to know whether Trump's business experience will make him a good job creator as president. The early evidence isn't great, but presidents don't actually have a whole lot of direct control in this area anyway.In some ways, Trump isn't a very fair test for these myths. It's certainly possible a different politically inexperienced corporate leader with a temperament more suited to politics might be running the executive branch considerably better at this point in a presidency. But he's doing some real damage to these persistent myths, and we may just end up better off for the experience.
"It's kind of ridiculous how they are preparing to deal with Trump," said one source briefed extensively on the meeting's preparations. "It's like they're preparing to deal with a child -- someone with a short attention span and mood who has no knowledge of NATO, no interest in in-depth policy issues, nothing," said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "They're freaking out."
