gzt: Education reforms? Obama's education policies were so bad, although i have to say Clinton's were worse, so bad, so bad you would not believe it. America is going to have the best education. It's going to be so good you would not believe it. You will not believe how good it is going to be:

Trump loves his lawyers. The logos are similar, but different enough.

To me, that looks like a mashup of Porsche, Peugeot and Citroen logos.

But his lawyers don't trust Trump. They now go in pairs so they have a witness against his lies.

Having never seen the logo, I immediately thought of Porsche. Maybe that's something for the lawyers to make a meal of.

Quite different from Peugeot (except maybe the 1950s). All are really based on the "lion rampant" from the Royal Flag of Scotland.

 

 

 

Imagine how embarrassing it would be to have this tattoo, and get mistaken as a Trump University alumnus!

Don't miss this piece, it's required-reading. Unless you're a Drumpf fanboy!

 

Especially, scroll down and read the replies.

 

There's a particularly brilliant post by Philip Cohen on 5May2017 6.04 PM GMT+12 (this is the notation alongside his name at the top of the post)

 

From memory, it's about 10 pages down.

 

But there are more and more posts being added every day, so you may have to drill down further.

Well, I just wasted an hour looking for the post. Next time provide a link or at least copy it.

It would not hurt to quote a short part of the article, and the comment. Eg;
article goes here
. If that's too hard just use traditional "quotes". I don't mind, or bold it, or italicise, anything really.

I rarely click on articles without some specific idea of the content. Article links without quotes always look like link spam to me. Don't take this personally, i raise this every so often.

A quoted paragraph from the source makes a better discussion.

I found the article by GeekIT, no problem

It was written by George Will, extreme right-wing Oxford educated writer He's well known as a Laissez-faire capitalist. Here's his Bio from the National Review

George Will writes a twice-weekly column on politics and domestic and foreign affairs. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1977. He is also a contributor to Fox News.

The fact the George Will is writing anti-Trump articles speaks volumes.

Anyhow this is GeekIt's article link again

And an AOL article (They're still alive???

George Will pens scathing attack on 'unfit' Trump for 'disorderly mind,' 'limitless gullibility'.

What can the public do about a President who doesn't seem to know anything? Keep talking about all of his mistakes.

Longtime conservative columnist George Will published an article Wednesday night in which he called upon the public to contact their representatives to express their concerns about Trump, who he says has a "combination of impulsivity and credulity" that makes him "uniquely unfit to take the nation into a military conflict."

"It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about President Trump's inability to do either. This seems to be not a mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of information and married to stratospheric self-confidence," he wrote.

He referred specifically to Trump's recent historical gaffes, where POTUS suggested that not only would Andrew Jackson have stopped the Civil War — even though he was dead for over a decade at that point — but that nobody really asks "why was there the Civil War?"

During Black History Month, Trump also seemed to imply that abolitionist Frederick Douglass was still alive.

"Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice," the president said.

Besides noted gaps in his historical knowledge, Trump also seems to know little about some of the most important issues he has to face while doing his job. Will noted that the president doesn't know the specifics of the nuclear triad (the method of delivering a nuclear weapon), or what has been the long-standing precedent on what to do with the world's stock of nuclear weaponry.

As Will states, not only should Americans be worried about Kim Jong Un in North Korea, but they should be worried about America.

I also found the article. That was easy. What I could not find (after much threading through the endless comments) was the comment that he mentioned so enthusiastically. It would have been helpful if he could have just copied and pasted it so the rest of us could see what he was going on about.

Hey, sorry guys. All I can say is that the link to the George Will article was definitely included my first post. I know this for sure because I edited the post several times.

 

Anyway, I see kingdragonfly kindly provided the link, thanks for that, mate.

 

Here's the text of Philip Cohen's post of 5/5/2017 6:04 PM GMT+1200

 

----------------------------------------------------------------
Right on. Trump’s only constant is his incoherent blustering …

Drumpf is a charlatan; an oafish, blustering, inarticulate, ignorant, incompetent, arrogant, uncouth, unprincipled, hypocritical, malevolent, misogynistic, autocratic, bullying, delusional, thin-skinned, extremely divisive, grossly narcissistic sociopath; a much sued, many-times bankrupted, pathological fabulator and liar, and a political neophyte, with a febrile brain that remains “status twitterus” (a dangerous condition in which twittering fits follow one another without recovery of consciousness between them)—in sum, a classic, “Dunning-Kruger” / “Peter Principle” affectee—utterly unfit to be POTUS.

Drumpf’s sole reason for being is to feed his insatiable narcissism—and bank account. Anyone that thinks that Drumpf has ever had any sense of service other than self-service, or that a man who has spent his entire adult life promoting his vulgar “brand” and the many scams to which he has licensed his name—to the cost of, usually, the “poorly educated”—now cares one iota about anyone else, or that he or his familial/crony parasites will pass up any opportunity to monetise his presidency, is naive—in the extreme.

Drumpf is an ignoramus; had he not been born into great wealth it’s likely he would now be living under an overpass somewhere. Yet the “poorly educated” have elected this “bouffanted buffoon” to be POTUS, making the U.S. the laughingstock of the world.

Drumpf is a man of principles few and flexible; he offers only incoherent bluster and delusionary or naively simple answers to complex problems—we will be lucky if this crétin does not cause some tragedy to befall the country.

The only thing scarier than Drumpf himself is the ~60 million stupid people that voted for this oaf and for whom—some may eventually come to realise—Drumpf cares not one iota.

“The mystery is how anyone finds him acceptable.”—Kathleen Parker (2016).

Had to smile at the post that followed. The guy said something like, "Hey Philip, next time, don't hold back".

You're welcome. Yes, I'm still chuckling over that post. It's worth reading all the entries. But you'd need a couple of days, I reckon. There's around 4000 posts already and they're still pouring in. I hope the groundswell of dissatisfaction over FAKEPOTUS grows to the point where the true bosses of the U.S.- the GOP - get A into G and dump the guy.

 

Every time my wife and I see this drip mouthing off on TV, we look at each other and moan, "This can't be real, we gotta be dreaming."
