Trump is pulling down all kinds of human created systems like dyslexics do because

dyslexics only get the concrete. Obviously what truth Trump holds to be self evident are different than those of career constitutional lawyers or diplomats or political operatives. It is going to be a long and bumpy ride. I just hope that Trump tries to be the type of dyslexic leader that thinks for himself with advisors who have the country's best interests at heart (Woodrow Wilson, Churchill, Kennedy) rather that a patsy dyslexic (George W. Bush, Reagan) who gets spoon fed by 'reality' by the right to help only the rich or those with stock in military corporations.

Intellectually he is a dyslexic. Emotionally a narcissistic celebrity. Politically a liar.

Someone who thinks America is on the brink of discovering how to

stop aging. Thus people could live 200 years. Thus the usa would have to double, triple, quadruple, quintuble the population. There would literally be no room. Unless not everyone gets the drug or scientific breakthrough. Which means only rich people. Which means medicare has to go. And Obama care. And there needs to be lots and lots of pollution. To kill more people....antidotes would be available for people who could afford it. Making sure only a small portion of the population survives to 200. But cancer research, funded by government, that doesn't get rolled back. So the science is not rolled back, just the ability of all to afford science. Makes a lot of sense if you think about it like that. I have not talked to Paul Ryan or read anything where he talks about why he does what he does. So I'm guessing. Would also explain why every GOPer thinks they absolutely need tens of millions of dollars. If you and your family live that long you do need that much money. I know that if they figure out how to stop ageing not everyone could get it - there is not enough room on the planet. I just think the right to live till 200 should go to people like the late Maya Angelou if it is scarse. You know, people who really have something important to say.

OPEC agreement. Drop of 1% of global oil markets but will raise the price

to $60 a barrel. Russia agrees to cut too. Putin must be thrilled.

So Carrier and Trump made a deal that did not include tariffs. Isn't Trump just

letting the cat out of the bag on this? Will it not make other corporations fake a deal to move to mexico in order to get like concessions? I thought Trump was against the enemy knowing what your plans are? That is why there is a system of laws...so nobody can take advantage of the system.

Why wouldn't other corporations fake a move to Mexico to get the same deal. Why

there is a system of laws and regulations...so corporations can't game the system. But Trump doesn't know that. Cause he doesn't understand systems.

Still. Trump is president for now. The Dems should learn from what happens

when and how Trump is attacked. Trump went ballistic. Pence was gracious. I wonder if this is not a new underground presidential race between Pence and Trump....where Pence plays the sober second thought and tries to attract those that are afraid of Trump to him. So that when the great impeachment of 20172018 happens, people will feel relief Pence is the most famous adult in power and mistake that for an attachment to Pence.

We should reach out and interconnect every time Trump, or his followers, do

something divisive or racist or hateful or mysoginistic. Every single time donate or call the victim or join a group or reach out to your neighbours, shovel a driveway, buy a coffee for a homeless person. Every single time we should react to hate with love. If all liberals did that the USA would be the best country in the world in no time.....and all to spite Trump and weaken him.

Trump is dyslexic so he is all about form in his brain.

Not language. And he pulls down human created fictions (like the constitution, diplomacy, the law, democracy, that the GOP claimed to not be racist) because he cannot learn them (he lives only in a concrete world). And he then replaces the system with something simpler he can understand that comes from the gut. So by pulling down the old, he endears himself to people who are afraid of all the complexity.

(I have not read the whole article as i cannot print it off. I will get back to it once I have fixed my printer).

I am so upset. I am looking for a forum to discuss

evolutionary psychology. Seems many are labeled as liberal, conservative or objectivism. This is not science (well the liberal one probably is). I can just see the perspectives of the non scientific ones trying to prove that we humans do not have so much in common. Or that sadism and hate are equal emotions to love and cooperation. Same as they talk about in political forums. If the split starts right at the scientific forums what hope is there for bridging the divide politically. I am guessing the climate forums are equally divided. And we are just supposed to lay back and take it as science is destroyed so that people will follow the psychopaths who are after power (when the psychopaths have proven to be the worst leadership in the history of the world). Love and cooperation are better than sadism and hate -am I right

He wants oil prices to go back up.
