TRUMP DONT JACK AROUND. - matlock - 01-23-2017

I THINK THE ESTABLISHMENT IS FAST FINDING OUT "THIS MAN IS SERIOUS"
THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT...
THE MEDIA DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT...

HE SAID IT
HE MENT IT
HE'S DOING IT
HE IS GOING TO REPRESENT IT!

THIS GUY, OUT OF NOWHERE... HAS CHANGED POLITICS, THE ELECTION PROCESS, THE MEDIA, AND THE PROTOCALLS OF THE PRESIDENTCY... BEFORE EVEN TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE!

YOUR NATION AND THE VERY WORLD JUST CHANGED FOREVER...


RE: TRUMP DONT JACK AROUND. - diverdown - 01-24-2017

Exactly right, Matt.

During the campaign, someone noted that the average Trump voter took him seriously but not literally.

Whereas the media (and the Left in general) took Trump literally but not seriously.

And they would focus on some little faux pas or other, pronounce that this was not at all Presidential,
and write him and his campaign off as insignificant.

They did this time and time and time again.

And they still do not have the measure of the man.

Their dearth of thought (or, quite frankly, even their ability to think) is quite telling, in that beyond the
hyperbolic use of ad hominems (racist, homophobe, misogynist, Islamaphobe, bigot) when encountering
things they simply don't like (even if they happen to be true) or that conflict with their ideological
world-view shows them to be the utter and complete blanks that they actually are, and how bankrupt
their ideology really is.

They have some preconceived notion of how Trump is and how he should act according to the straitjacketed
straw-man lingering in their heads, and when he fails to do so (confounding them further) he throws them
completely off-kilter and into sheer confusion.

Which, of course, I find delightful.

But I notice that you seem to be enjoying rubbing that schadenfreude salt into their open wound quite a bit.   Big Grin

It sure seems to be starting out that way.  


Quote:Trump kicked off his first official week in office meeting with some of the country's largest technology and manufacturing companies...

And he immediately doubled down on a few of his biggest proposals.

In the meeting that included executives from Dell, Dow Chemical, Ford Motor, International Paper, Lockheed Martin, Tesla, Under Armour, U.S. Steel, and Whirlpool, among others, Trump promised "massive" cuts to taxes and regulations.
He again said he would seek to cut the top corporate tax rate from 35% to 15%. And he said he intends to slash regulations – which he said is even more important to business leaders than tax cuts – by "75%, maybe more."


From Reuters:

Quote:The new president told companies that they were welcome to negotiate with governors to move production between states, but said those businesses that choose to move factories outside the country would pay a price.

"We are going to be imposing a very major border tax on the product when it comes in," Trump said. "A company that wants to fire all of its people in the United States, and build some factory someplace else, and then thinks that that product is going to just flow across the border into the United States – that's not going to happen," he said.

During the campaign, Trump mentioned on several occasions that the only way
to achieve full assimilation into the American culture was by learning and speaking
America's dominant language  --  English.

While speaking multiple languages is certainly admirable (and usually desirable) refusing
to learn the primary language of the country in which you reside is not only stupid but is
something that should not be encouraged and in fact should be actively discouraged.

But catering to those fringe elements who refuse to do so seems to be one of the hallmarks
of Progressivism.  (In point of fact, appealing to fringe groups of all sorts seems to be
the main thrust of most of the Left/Liberal platform, while mainly ignoring the vast majority
[and even large minorities] of the population).

For example, during the Obama administration, if you went to the White House web site
and couldn't read or understand English, you had only to click on a button to have
everything rendered en español:

Not quite the case in the Trump White House.

If you try to do the same thing now, here's the Error Message you get:

No multiple languages.

Just English.

EBONICS

ANY attempt to teach REAL English instead,
is met with ATTACKS.


Quote:Quote:A School Administrator Corrected a Student’s Spelling on Twitter. She Was Fired.
The student, "Nathan," tweeted "Close school tammarow PLEASE" at Frederick County Public Schools. Katie Nash, the district's social media director, replied "but then how would you learn to spell 'tomorrow'? [Image: smile.png]" from the FCPS account.
District officials were not pleased. First, they instructed Nash to stop tweeting. Then they called her into a meeting and abruptly fired her, according to The Frederick News-Post:

and don't stop there,
ALL the stuff we knew was bad years ago,
we NOW GLORIFY

Of course everyone should learn English, but there are many people here (even legally) who haven't managed it yet.  I don't see the harm in having sites available in multiple languages.  Why stop at Spanish?

As John Howard (Australian PM a couple of decades ago) said:

"In order to come to Australia you've got to want to become Australian"


RE: TRUMP DONT JACK AROUND. - StingingNettle - 01-25-2017

Obama: Change!

~8 years later~

Trump: Oh yeah? Hold my beer. Watch this.
