According to polling, it seems a majority of the US still agrees with POTUS' travel ban as well as a number of other policies including the wall.

 

No doubt the wailing and gnashing will die down soon enough, as it did post-Brexit.

I don't think so. Brexit was a decision made by the people in a vote, as was Trump. But Trump is a human, Brexit isn't. Trump can live and breathe his ways each week, and its only been 3 so far. Plus we haven't seen his other policies in action yet. Trade for one. On that, beats me how the US is being ripped off in trade, re FTA's. You would think they have the most pull to negotiate a good deal. US involvement in international hotspots is another. Lots to come still.

I heard one of his new policies is to get bathrobes in the WH, change all the lights, and new towels for Air Force One.

I've written two BSc final essays for people and they passed... I don't have one myself.


And Ms Conway seems as intelligent as my dog. Bowling Green massacre, Ads for Trumps daughter on TV.. real effing intelligent.


Again degree /= intelligence, as much as you want it to.



Do you see the irony in a thread that is currently discussing honesty, that you admit to being complicit in someone fraudulently gaining a BSc?

CNN alert just received. Next week he will be announcing new security measures to keep the US safe.

 

So, he has lost his ban battle. Or, he actually got some proper advice for a change. Or, he will now take heed of the proper advice he got before, that he ignored.

 

A good plan is to take measures that are constitutional, legal, and non racist.

People can find polls and statistics to back up whatever they want to believe. My sister lives in the States and her reading is that most people are thoroughly fed up with the Trump circus. Some quotes from her email:

 

'Much of what's being talked about or printed is in the vein of - can you believe he did this idiotic thing? The latest thing is that he supposedly phoned his national security advisor at 3 am to ask if a strong dollar or a weak one was good for the markets.'

 

'No doubt, there are a lot of people with a lot of influence over what gets into print that don't like Trump and wish he hadn't been elected. However, knowing that many people internalize their own beliefs based on what they hear that they *should* believe, I think the overall opinion is negative.'

 

'Other headlines I've noticed are companies discontinuing carrying Ivanka Trump something or other, I think it was related to some fashion line she had that a store decided not to sell anymore to distance themselves from her? I'm not sure, just that it added to the sense that everyone wants to be as uninvolved with the Trumps as they can.'

 

'CNBC and Bloomberg seem to try and discuss things in a more rational manner. CNBC reports on things like how the business and tech communities (since Silicon valley is relevant to the stock market) are responding to Trump's travel bans, since many of their employees come from the nations Trump wants to block travel from. And of course, there is lots of concern about how new trade rules will impact companies, and talk about NAFTA and Dodd-Frank and other things I've heard of but don't know anything about.'

 

And finally, a link she sent me:

From the above link:

 

 

This is a time for serious people to face our most serious problems, and meanwhile this guy signed the order to appoint Steve Bannon to the National Security Council without knowing what he was signing.

 

That's what political scientists call "bonkers-level horrifying."

Interesting Trump Article with a slightly less hysterical liberal viewpoint than many here.
