He does have a BSC(Economics). I don't think he is insane, marketing is second nature to him and he knows what his supporters want to hear and he uses that very well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having a BSC doesn't make you any smarter than anyone else, or sane.

 

 

 

It just means you had the time, opportunity, and money to go to uni.

 



I agree really sanity but as for the rest , no I don't agree.

 

I don't care if you agree or not.

 

You make no sense at all.

 

I know many stupid people with BScs. Most scraped through and some even took 8-9 years, but it's still a BSc.

 

Hell, even I got offered a full scholarship to UNE in the 90's but my need to actually have a job meant I couldn't.

 

I also know a hell of a lot of really smart people that have nothing more than a trade. Some with not even that. Many run successful businesses. 

 

 

 

And then there's people like Lindsay Fox

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow, aggressive aren't we. I let let you play by yourself. Have fun.

 

 

Having analyzed this, the TL;DR goes like this: seems you are kindof saying to him that he doesn't have a degree so he is definitely an inferior class of society.

 

As for Blakamin, Mike tends to type what he thinks and what he thinks depends on how much back pain he has. Apparently.





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

More nukes eh? Great, I feel safer already.

 

 

 

 

Nukes are like dogs. One incurs expense and time. Two or three do not incur two or three multiples thereof.

 

 

 

Personally I feel no more safe with n+x% where n is how many we have today than I do with n.

 

I do feel safer where n is more than zero on our side though, especially nowadays.

 

 

What? Nukes are nothing like dogs.

 

Our safety isn't determined by how many nukes 'we' have. It is determined by how many nukes 'they' have, and they have enough to turn us into glass.

 

This nuke escalation talk is insane. Anyone who advocates nuclear escalation is insane.

 

A nuclear war can't be won.

 

 

 

 

Who cares? You nor I nor anyone much else will ever do anything about it. No point in worrying at all. May as well worry about the sun imploding.

 

 

I do care!

 

There is still time.

I have to say that is a unacceptable as well.

 

Just because you are 70 years old, doesn't mean you will necessarily develop dementia.

 

Btw, i am nowhere near 70 :) so no conflict of interest yet!

 

So, what signs of dementia is he now exhibiting?

 

Personally, I thought he was always crazy.

Absolutely. He is narcissistic, but way too much stuff has been pre-emped. The media is so opinionated, and they are not reporting the facts anymore.

 

Look at facts, Trump will flip-flop on a lot of stuff he promised basically because its not possible to achieve it all. As for the whole nuclear weapons debate, the problem has already been there, and Russia are talking about strengthening their arsenal because there are a LOT of problems in Russia at the moment, and Putin is worried about losing his power.

 

Do some research from somewhere that is not going Trump is going to start WW3 because he is a narcissist and wants to grab women by the p***y.

 

https://geopoliticalfutures.com/forecasting-russia-in-2017/ 

 

AS for Trump like any president I don't think he would use them unless he had no other options. He is just saying they need to modernize their arsenal, do I like it, not particularly. And yes it is somewhat concerning, however I believe he doesn't want a nuclear war of any sort.

 

He is going to shake up China though, and I wouldn't be surprised if we are in for a volatile economy for at least the next 4-6 years, so I would start winding back any risky investments.

The way I see this: US installed many dictators in foreign land. Now Russia installed Trump. What goes round comes around.

They don't need to... He just puts his random thoughts on twitter, which will probably cause an international incident if it's not stopped before he gets power.

 

His picks for cabinet show that he's completely dangerous. 

 

He might not start ww3, but he might cause a lot of riots and maybe even a revolution, depending on how badly he treats "minorities".

 

 

 

When he asked African-Americans "what have you got to lose", a lot replied with "everything".

Actually, I think his picks for cabinet show that he is, and will be, controlled by the Republican Party after all. He's shown that his anti-establishmentarianism was just unsupportable rhetoric.

 

In which case, I don't think the WW3 risk is as high as it could have been, because an annihilated world would play hell with the stock market.

Trump won't start WW3 deliberately - he will do it accidentally, due to his incompetence, his arrogance, and his total lack of diplomatic skills.

I'm pretty sure even the GOP aren't fans of the KKK and maybe even entirely not supportive of the head of Exxon having any power. They're happy to take their lobbying money, but when someone else has the power.....

Just because you are 70 years old, doesn't mean you will necessarily develop dementia.

 

Woah, slow down buddy - I did not say that because he was 70 he has dementia. I said he is 70 and shows signs of it. It is well known that the older you get the higher the likelihood you have some cognitive impairment. There are people who will show signs of dementia at half Trump's age and those that will have near perfect cognitive function at 100+. 

 

About 3% of people between the ages of 65–74 have dementia, 19% between 75 and 84 and nearly half of those over 85 years of age. Long-term studies suggest that 15 to 20 percent of those aged 65 and older may have at least a mild cognitive impairment.

 

 

So, what signs of dementia is he now exhibiting?

 

 

The following is a passage from Wikipedia on Alzheimer's disease - the cause of 60% to 70% of cases of dementia. I've bolded the symptoms that I see in Trump. As someone who has seen family members go through significant cognitive decline, I see many similarities in his behaviour - but I am of course not a doctor or an expert, it's just my observation and opinion. 

 

Subtle problems with the executive functions of attentiveness, planning, flexibility, and abstract thinking, or impairments in semantic memory (memory of meanings, and concept relationships) can also be symptomatic of the early stages of AD. Apathy can be observed at this stage, and remains the most persistent neuropsychiatric symptom throughout the course of the disease. Depressive symptoms, irritability and reduced awareness of subtle memory difficulties are also common. The preclinical stage of the disease has also been termed mild cognitive impairment (MCI). This is often found to be a transitional stage between normal ageing and dementia. MCI can present with a variety of symptoms, and when memory loss is the predominant symptom, it is termed "amnestic MCI" and is frequently seen as a prodromal stage of Alzheimer's disease.

 

If he does indeed have some sort of age related cognitive impairment, this is likley to get worse during his presidency. And with this other personality traits could be very problematic.

Check out some recent clips of Trump shown on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. 

 

In those clips, taken on Trumps "Thank you" tour.....Trump is seen musing on the various strategies and slogans that he saw as helping him win. He makesit very clear he was just saying things to gain advantage and didn't have any prior - or even real - commitment to them (or clear understanding of what they actually might mean in practice).

Like "drain the swamp". His advisors told him to say it. He said it. Wow! A reaction. He said it again....and again...and kept saying because of the reaction. He obviously had no idea what it might mean in practice. Hadn't given it a moment's thought. He goes on about other elements.....just manipulative marketing slogans. 

He's telling the audience he played them......and it's all rubbish. 

They clap......

This is bad enough if you're selling a hotel development to investors.....but for the elected head of state to be a liar and cheat....well....you can defend that if you like, but you'd be one more fool among many if you did.
