You seem to be taking that to the extreme though and saying that the only reason that he has made many poor life choices is because he listened to Rush. And you double down on it by, once again, flaunting your great lifestyle and saying the only reason that you are doing so well is because you're a left extremist yourself.

Rush did not tell him to crash his Harley. And if he is truly brain damaged and that's not just you insulting anybody who doesn't see things your way again, I'm going to say that the source of that brain damage was much more likely the motorcycle crash than reading books by Rush.

I'm not sure what your point about the Harley was anyway? Are you saying that he bought a Harley because Rush told him to only buy American, and that if he had bought a crotch rocket instead that he wouldn't have crashed it?


You're points are all over the map.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Do people who can’t think listen to Rush? Or does listening to Rush diminish thinking? Yes to both, I say.


Ho boy. Your Libtard delusions are showing.

A typical day at www.rushlimbaugh.com/ will have Rush telling misleading stories and making claims or drawing conclusions he can’t prove. This goes on for hours and tomorrow Rush will do it again and the same listeners will be back. What kind of person would listen to Rush? Do they have all their marbles? No they don’t, but I am drawing my conclusion from a small sample size of Texas Republicans whose personal incompetence in the biggest decisions of life is noteworthy. Where you are from, whatever state, maybe, just maybe, Rush listeners are not a bunch of dumb asses in the real world. You are very lucky. (By "dumb ass" I don't mean Republican. I mean they make dumb mistakes that cost money, jobs, marriages and health. These aren't trivial mistakes. One has two strikes: negligent homicide and accidental poisoning of his wife. She is very dead. I'll add a little moral: pay less attention to what Trump or Rush say and more attention to their own lives.)

A sample from www.rushlimbaugh.com
Phony Penguin Photo Used to Sell Global Warming Lie
Mar 7,2017
RUSH: The picture was a couple of penguins on an anvil-shaped piece of ice in what looked like a rock-strewn, barren landscape.

We’ve Never Seen Anything Like CNN’s Spy Cam
Mar 7,2017
RUSH: Did you see what CNN did yesterday? Have you seen still shots or video of this? They never did this on Obama.

You Better Be Applauding Donald Trump for Turning the Tables on the Democrats
Mar 7,2017
RUSH: This whole Russia-rigged-the election thing is a bogus charge and he decided to pick the grenade up and throw it right back at the media-Democrat complex. And it's working.

In Defense of Jason Chaffetz
Mar 7,2017
RUSH: Jason Chaffetz stepped into it yesterday, and I’m gonna defend him. I know exactly what he was talking about. He may not know what he was talking about, but I do.

Rush’s Famous Quotes for Today!
"Did you see that today is a Day Without Women? Have you heard that? It's something like that, a Day Without Women rally. The organizers here are encouraging women not to shop. Now, how much do you want to bet that idea was cooked up by their husbands?" Maybe a little context will help? Rush is now on wife #4. I predict he will be in the marketplace for #5 by 2020. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rush_Limbaugh

depends on your def. of real liberal. not classical liberal. I'm pretty sure Trump is that. The other thing he is, is President of the United States. Jack is right. It did rub me the wrong, way, a little too derogatory. Like Bush or Chimp, or if someone had said that Obama was not a valid president because he was ... (oh anything, you know that no one would have gotten away with it) but it would have been wrong. Bush and Obama were terrible presidents because of their policies, not because they had big ears.

Props for the Boshe Moi comment. I'm sure that Putin think just that from time to time. Those exact two words. He's not jewish enough for Oy Vey.

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them. Pity would be no more, If we did not MAKE men poor - William Blake


Whenever I did something really stupid, I could hear mom mutter under her breath Matko Bosko ("Mother of God"). For more extreme cases, like if you hit your finger with a hammer, psy krew i cholera ("dog's blood and cholera") would serve, but it flustered the nuns.

What I found interesting was that for as anti-Semitic as most Poles were "back in the day" a lot of Yiddish found its way into "kitchen Polish". If it was drizzling, for example, the weather was schmatzy (pronounced schmutzy in Yiddish/ German). A person who was ineffective was called a "putz", a real big a-hole was called a "schmuck".

Ahh... the past! I should tell you about duck blood soup someday. A very fond memory for me!

One of my uncles used to say "God Blessit!" whenever he'd get pissed off. I don't know where he got that one from. It's even funnier that he named the dog Satan and my grandparents kept the dog after he left home. Really was strange since they were old school religious and used to pray with the rosary every night after dinner when I was a kid.

I worked with a guy, bartender, who was all the girls' dream. Leather jacket, a bit wild, dark and mysterious. Drove his motorcycle home once from work on the main street without a helmet. Crashed, was in the hospital, people who visited said his head had swollen to twice the normal size, some couldn't look and left his room. He died days later, some said thankfully. Helmets is good.

I regret ever insinuating that Trump voters/Rush Limbaugh listeners ride for "Freedom!" which is why they are most of the motorcyclists riding without helmets. Turning back now to "Is Trump Nuts?" I have this:

A rule disqualifying anyone who said mean things about Trump during the campaign bars far too many people from staffing the administration. At the same time, Trump remains concerned about leaks and loyalty and doesn’t seem to want to drop the idea entirely. Consequently, nobody is exactly sure who they are allowed to put forward for what position or why.

Does this seem like Trump is nuts in his rules for running the government?

It is from an article "The White House is scrutinizing job candidates’ old social media posts for criticism of Trump". I read it. I'm convinced Trump is nuts.

The White House has important work to do, work far beyond making Trump look good, but kinks in Trump's personality prevent that work from getting done.

Can't do that because Trump's nuttiness (Remember this "Is Trump Nuts?") rubs off on everything he touches. For example of Trump being a murdering sociopath there is Women and Children in Yemeni Village Recall Horror of Trump’s “Highly Successful” SEAL Raid. You can read the article about the subtle differences between psychopath and sociopath after you read what Trump had done for his amusement and self-glorification in Yemen, but Trump is impulsive and doesn’t plan ahead
Can be prone to fighting and aggressiveness
Has little regard for the safety of others
https://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2015/02/12/differences-between-
a-psychopath-vs-sociopath
/

Nesma al Ameri, an elderly village matriarch who lost four family members in the raid, described how the attack helicopters began firing down on anything that moved. As she recounted the horror of what happened, Sinan tapped her on the arm. “No, no. The bullets were coming from behind,” the 5-year-old insisted, interrupting to demonstrate how he was shot at and his mother gunned down as they ran for their lives. “From here to here,” Sinan said, putting two fingers to the back of his head and drawing an invisible line to illustrate the direction of the bullet exiting her forehead. His mother fell to the ground next to him, still clutching his baby brother in her arms. Sinan kept running.

His mother’s body was found in the early light of dawn, the front of her head split open. The baby was wounded but alive. Sinan’s mother was one of at least six women killed in the raid, the first counterterrorism operation of the Trump administration, which also left 10 children under the age of 13 dead. “She was hit by the plane. The American plane,” explained Sinan. “She’s in heaven now,” he added with a shy smile, seemingly unaware of the enormity of what he had witnessed or, as yet, the impact of his loss. “Dog Trump,” declared Nesma, turning to the other women in the room for agreement. “Yes, the dog Trump,” they agreed.

According to White House press secretary Sean Spicer, the al Ghayil raid “was a very, very well thought out and executed effort.”

"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" Trump wrote as part of a series of tweets Saturday morning.

It certainly seems to be rubbing off on you. Then again, I never had any sober conversations with you before Trump was elected, so I can't say if you were always insane or if that is a recent phenomena.

Check J0's campaign page. I'm sure there's a link to the language there. It actually is really interesting. I wasn't poking fun at it. He's also got a lot of advanced mathematical stuff that is way over my head. I'd be comfortable in saying that J0 probably is the smartest person on this board by a wide margin.

Still doesn't mean that I agree with a lot of his far left political ideals though.

I used to be smart, until they cured me of it. At the moment I can only be worried about being alive. Smart again, that will have to be at a later date.

Looking at Nooalf. I think Jo, you should talk to Haken about the unicode mishap. Thorn and eth etc are available chars. Diacriticals used in eastern europe are available as well. First though is that ng is not enngah except in rare instances like ingot, most of the time, it's ing, which spent most of its life as one character, and is one sound. I use j. Looks like you've assigned j, maybe "n" is not in use, in your LANGwej or (LAnwej)

Con lang is a hobby of mine as well. This is con-alf, I've done three myself, a script, a block letter and a stenotype method. But many quesitons remain. readability is an issue. Some people can scan thousands of words for minute, from eye to concept skipping the fenetix entirely. It might convey meaning if not sound, in a world where we all information is typed.

Then there's my brother's argument: why not write everything in Chinese? It's a valid question, and would save a lot of translation time. I have issues with that as well, but I figure that all issues can be worked out. Similarly with Korean, for SuMXin(g) MOR FeNeTiK, or Japanese, which has a lot of advantages.

I saw no math. I see some neat gagets. So I believe math was consulted. And Serenite, GuD

About 5 years ago J0 and I were talking almost every night with Wish. I had started a thread about buying my house and the repairs I was making there and the three of us talked a lot in there. Somehow we found ourselves in the RWED and then I had my problems and they got to witness me basically drink myself to insanity.

I remember J0 showing me some math stuff he was working on and trying to explain it to me. My brain just doesn't work like that, unfortunately, so I couldn't keep up with him on that. Put me in charge of your accounting and taxes for your business and I'll have that ship running tip top, but ask me to design the ship for you and it will sink before it ever leaves the dock.

Me growing up: 2 parents, 1 grandparent & 5 kids.

Over the years, I saw that all of us were intelligent in our own ways.

Example: My Dad was genius level in math & mechanics. But socially, he
was a dork & couldn't spell for beans. He could draw very well.

My Mom was smarter about social matters & spelling, so she taught Dad
to look up the words in the dictionary. She never let herself see that he
was a dork.

My older sister was smart about most academic work, & had a knack for
computers, programming. In high school, tho, she had me proof read all
her homework, 'cause not only was her spelling poor, but she'd become
blind to her common errors.

I was smart academically, dumb socially, & very good at art work.

& So on: my younger sisters & brother all had different abilities.

Of the 8 of us, I know 4 of us have OCD.

I grew up believing that Intelligence is not just one thing, it's many
things. I think it's good to appreciate & develop our gifts, and not
worry too much about the things we don't grasp easily.

As for Sanity vs Insanity ... that's the emotional part of the brain, a
whole different department. But people who live primarily to serve their
egos indulging anger over objectivity ... will be Nuts.

No, no, I am totally nuts, while Trump is perfectly sane. I'm the nut talking to myself in public and you are unfortunately overhearing my mutterings and beginning to wonder if security guards should be called. But I've got another article about Trump's clever ways to make a straight forward massacre that he ordered look like a military success story:
https://theintercept.com/2017/03/09/new-evidence-contradicts-pentagons
-account-of-yemen-raid-but-general-closes-the-case
/

The Pentagon’s top Middle East commander told Congress on Thursday that he found no signs of “poor decision-making or bad judgment” in a January raid in Yemen that killed 10 children and at least six women, as well as Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens.

“I made the determination that there was no need for an additional investigation into this particular operation,” said Gen. Joseph Votel. Votel was investigating his own role when he commented on his own decision-making and judgment. Who but himself would know more about himself and what a fine job he had done?

Earlier on Thursday, The Intercept published its own investigation of the raid based on eyewitnesses, including a 5-year-old who described how his mother was gunned down while trying to flee what other family members said was indiscriminate gunfire from a helicopter.

The White House has tried to shame the raid’s critics into silence. Last month, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters “anyone who undermines the success of that raid owes an apology and does a disservice.” In a series tweets the next day, President Trump said criticism from Sen. John McCain, R.-Ariz., “emboldens the enemy.”

Media coverage has largely focused on Owens, the fallen Navy SEAL, and whether the raid produced intelligence — not on the massacre or village, which is now mostly abandoned.

After Owens’s father told Trump “not to hide behind my son’s death,” Trump invited the SEAL’s wife to the Capitol for his first joint address to Congress. Trump insisted the raid was a “massive success,” and was showered with praise by media pundits for paying tribute to the widow.

When I see the pictures of the town in Yemen I think of Jayne’s line “What are we hoping to find here that equals the worth of a turd?” Mal replies, “We are here to gather intelligence by seizing Al Qaeda electronics.” Then after, when they are counting their bags of loot, White House spokesman Sean Spicer says that the mission "gathered an unbelievable amount of intelligence that will prevent the potential deaths or attacks on American soil." He got that right when he said unbelievable. "When you have women and children killed, loss of (a) $70 million aircraft, you do not capture anyone as was part of the mission, that mission is not a success," said Arizona Sen. John McCain. Senator McCaskill also questioned the administration's claim that the raid yielded valuable information. "I think there have been mixed signals about the value of the intelligence that was gathered."

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them. Pity would be no more, If we did not MAKE men poor - William Blake


One of the problems that I have with liberals in general is that they have convenient morals which are just as subject to "tribalism" as conservatives.

I see that SECOND is heartbroken about a woman's death ... which was no less tragic, no different than the women who died from Obama's drone strikes.

Quote:

Obama’s covert drone war in numbers: ten times more strikes than Bush

Obama embraced the US drone programme, overseeing more strikes in his first year than Bush carried out during his entire presidency. A total of 563 strikes, largely by drones, targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen during Obama’s two terms, compared to 57 strikes under Bush. Between 384 and 807 civilians were killed in those countries, according to reports logged by the Bureau.



Or, when you think about it, no less awful than the bombing which destroyed Libya (to cheers and applause from democracy-promoting liberals everywhere). If the key characteristic of being "nuts" is not recognizing reality, there are a lot of prizes on that score to be handed out.

Does this sound bitter? If course it does. The key flaw in liberal AND conservative thinking is the ability to give a "pass" to heinous activities when "your tribe" does it, as opposed to when "the other tribe" does it. Which is why nobody speaks up when THUGR is being a clearly-identified troll.

This mindless tribalism, which is a key propaganda point in everything from sports to politics, will be the death of us.

Per your usual, Signym, you are understanding nothing. Why would I care when General Votel kills two dozen women and children on Trump’s orders, if Trump had good reasons? But Trump’s “reason”, while sitting down to dinner with guests, was to demonstrate to those guests how he would quickly solve terrorism when Obama could not. Trump totally failed and can’t admit failure since he is nuts. But he enjoyed the meal and impressed his guests for a few minutes. What more could Trump desire for that delightful evening in Florida when he approved the raid on Yemen?

What I do care about is General Votel found no signs of “poor decision-making or bad judgment” after he investigated himself. That was very convenient for Votel. Too convenient. The whole system of correcting errors must be completely broken when people and Signym accept when General Votel says Votel did no wrong. It is the same old crazy nonsense when President Trump says Trump did no wrong after Trump looks at his own actions.

Right now this country has Bannon and Trump trying to bring down and circumvent all of our democratic institutions. That leaves a completely unchecked president calling all the shots. It's called a dictatorship. Most recently, today, our State Department was unware a Mexican government dignitary is in this country. They had not been informed. Normally, not only would they help plan the visit, they would attend the meeting. By excluding them Trump and Bannon are enabled to consolidate power. That is the unarguable reason why Trump should not be president. Either he is clueless as to how this country works, or he just plan wants to destroy it. Take your pick, they are both disqualifiers.

And SIG defending him disqualifies her perspective as well.

Let's jump back into the territory of Trump being mentally ill. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was only a little devious about his goals for healthcare; he is not mentally ill. On the other hand, Trump is betraying every promise he ever made on that subject by endorsing Ryan's plan.

Trump’s embrace of the American Health Care Act, authored by Paul Ryan and other House Republicans seemingly in collaboration with establishment-minded members of his administration, represents a massive betrayal of his own clear and repeated promises to the American people. It would be a mistake to simply gloss over this breach of faith.

Trump’s false embrace of more centrist positions on health care and retirement security was a crucial aspect of his campaign, and there was enough campaign-season tension between Trump and the GOP leadership that a voter could be forgiven for assuming Trump meant what he was saying. He did not because he is nuts.

Trump ran and won promising to cover everyone, avoid Medicaid cuts, and boost funding for opioid abuse treatment. He is now lobbying Congress to pass a bill that does none of those things. Instead, millions will lose insurance and Medicaid spending will be sacrificed on the altar of tax cuts for the rich.

It’s not a surprising result, but in many ways it is a shocking one.

Also IIRC Bush admin was able to keep a lid on the torture scandal long enough. People reading the muslim news knew that something was amiss, but most americans were gulping down that MSM.

Obama, also, a semi-friendly media helps. When he was re-elected, the only continents we weren't at war in were Australia and Antarctica.

I was simply embarrassed by him. We, the people, had to be crazy to elect him.

But ... we have an impeachment thread on this board. Maybe the answer is there.

The answer is very straight forward:

Comey Elected Trump
www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2017/03/say-it-me-again-james-comey-ele
cted-donald-trump-president


Engagement Labs is a company that tracks "what people are talking about." Brad Fay, one of their executives, tells us that during the presidential campaign people were talking very negatively about everyone. They were more negative about Donald Trump, but they were plenty negative about Hillary Clinton too. However, the gap between the candidates changed from time to time based on external events:

"Most decisively, there was a sudden change in the net sentiment results that followed immediately after FBI Director James Comey released his Oct. 28 letter to Congress about a renewed investigation of Clinton emails. Immediately afterwards, there was a 17-point drop in net sentiment for Clinton, and an 11-point rise for Trump, enough for the two candidates to switch places in the rankings, with Clinton in more negative territory than Trump. At a time when opinion polling showed perhaps a 2-point decline in the margin for Clinton, this conversation data suggests a 28-point change in the word of mouth “standings.” The change in word of mouth favorability metric was stunning, and much greater than the traditional opinion polling revealed."

Of course, a picture is worth a thousand words:


In late October, Clinton leads Trump by 24 points in the Engagement Labs survey. Two days after the Comey letter is released, Trump is ahead by four points. Trump kept that lead until Election Day.

Once again: Hillary Clinton did nothing particularly wrong in her campaign. She didn't ignore working-class whites. She wasn't too cautious on policy. She didn't overestimate the impact of educated voters. She wasn't complacent. What happened was simple: 12 days before the election, the FBI director released a letter saying he had found a brand-new trove of emails and implying that this might finally be the smoking gun about her private email server. That's it.

We'll never know for sure if James Comey did this because he's terminally stupid and didn't realize what impact it would have, or if he did it knowing full well what impact it would have. But he did it. And that's why Donald Trump is president.

Srsly? I thought it was a disaster. She could have reached out to Sanders, and his supporters, or taken an actual stand on any issue, defended her record instead of endlessly saying on camera that she didn't say the things that she had earlier also said on camera. That struck me as a pre-information age level of stupid. She didn't really campaign in blue states. I think she thought Smartmatic was going to hand it to her.

Hillary was senator-not-from-here in New York. She had a residence she had never been to. The only night in her life she spent in New York was when she was stuck on a layover. The democratic party machine delivered her unto us, so it was personally embarrassing to see her name and New York written there, as she talked about all of the dumb neocon warmongering she wanted to do as Senator. I thought she was a disaster as Senator and as Secretary of State.

If dems don't like Sanders, fine, give us Elizabeth Warren. But don't pretend HRC isn't what she is. because people aren't fooled. That's why she lost. Because she's basically George W. Bush.

For many Trump voters it was simply a matter of economics, and for others, pay back. He did win though because Hilary was awful and the democrats stopped speaking to the white working class many years ago.

According to Aunt Alice who read about these things, Joe Kennedy was a monster,
sorta like Trump, but smarter if not richer.

We elected his son, John F. Kennedy president; he was one of the most popular
presidents ever; even many Republicans liked him.

So he got shot. They say we all remember where we were & what we were
doing when we heard of it. I know I do.

Bobby Kennedy came up to bat. He got shot, too. No coincidence; an
inside job.

If Joe was as bad as my Aunt said he was, were John & Bobby as
wonderful as we wanted to believe they were? NM the sex scandals;
I'm just concerned with their politics.

The thing is, they were pretty. John & Jackie were glamerous like
movies stars, and we fell for that.

My conclusion: Americans have been childishly gullible about politicians
ever since I was a kid. It might take some real hard times to wise us up.

If Trump is crazy, those who elected him are crazier.

I just watched a documentary on Joe the son during WW11. He volunteered to take off with a plane full of explosives and then when airborne jump out. Then the plane was to be piloted remotely. It was supposed to take out a large gun emplacement in France that was actually reaching England. Well, the plane exploded. Instead they invented the first bunker busting bomb. Guess what, it worked.

His father had said publicly he son Joe was going to be president. Apparently one dead son wasn't going to deter him.

Before the election, Comey said that there was no new evidence and they would not be going forward with criminal charges. If anything, this would have garnered sympathy for her.

Clinton lost the election when she did her "Basket of Deplorables" speech. I truly believe if she never went there that this would have ended a lot differently.

If we take the definition of insanity as trying the same thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result, than voting for Clinton on so many different levels was the insane choice.

Those who voted for him may agree that it was a mistake in the future, but it was not the insane choice, at least by the textbook definition.

See? This is the problem right here: tribalism.

My side versus your side, and nobody caring whether or not if what they're saying is true, or just alienating. SECOND is a MASTER of dehumanization and alienation. That seems to be her whole purpose here: She just throws shit against a wall to see what sticks, no matter if it's a lie or unimportant, to make "the other side" sound completely whacked and inhuman. WIN BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE. What does that say about how she sees "the other side"? Not worthy of consideration?

OONJ, if Hillary had won, I'm sure that we would be on-track to be signed, sealed and delivered to the free trade tribunals.

Quite possibly we would be bombing Syrian troops directly, and even a hair's-breadth from war with Russia (which G and THUGR seem to want so desperately). I would be beside myself with fear, and feeling an awful dread about what was going to happen next, wondering just how under the boot heel were were about to be.

But I would HOPE that I would have more decency than to say that all Hillary voters were "crazy".

I know why people voted for her, and while I don't agree with those reasons I know that people DO have their reasons. If we could just TALK about those reasons and start to reach some common understanding of what it is that we all need, and start to reach a consensus about how to get there, we might just prevent this society from tearing itself apart.

---

Back in the day, I used to go after conservatives with a hammer and tong. The board would divide up between two sides, and go after each other for all we were worth. There was a very long thread about "dehumanization" ... and how it was the first step to civil war, massacres, and ethnic cleansing. I'm sorry to say that I participated in that dehumanization, and I'm sorry to see it continuing.
