Oh dyslexia is just a type of brain. You can be a genius and dyslexic. Of course Einstein

was dyslexic and even his colleagues who admired him were frustrated with his lack of study of details. But it is all relative. If you have a 140 IQ and are dyslexic you work for NASA. Look at it like pattern recognition. They pay attention to form not language. And if you have the 3D type brain it takes lots of brain power. So often you are describing the shape of something in your mind, how it relates to other things, not the details of it. It is called dynamic reasoning. Looking at patterns of the past to come up with patterns in the future. Why dyslexics are good at sciences, business, acting, and politics. And yes public speaking in many cases. (I am not).

That's why the GOP keep nominating dyslexics as their Presidential candidates. The Bushes,

Reagan and Trump all dyslexics. They speak in generalities and from the heart...making them seemingly presidential to those who read too much into those generalities. They are good at the big picture and bad at details. Good at sussing out the concrete and great at tearing down the fictions of others as they are good at the concrete not social constructs. Perfect political puppets.When Democrats elect dyslexics they are not puppets but the smartest: Kennedy and Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt. Eleanor Roosevelt was dyslexic too and played a major part in FDR's administration as his eyes and ears. Churchill was dyslexic too.

I alerted on a few Russians at the Discussionist. Does that count?

I think I even resang that 1970s hockey era chant: "Da Da Canada, Nyet Nyet Soviet!!!" But that was to Russians on the DU I think.

Well they want the ceos to have all your creativity and that is helped

by anxiety. If you smoke pot you are less anxious about everything including work. I mean the ceos want even your dreams to be focused on them and making them more money. People who are high focus either on their hands or the universe. CEOS can't monetize either.

I'm dyslexic like Trump and I sometimes say something I shouldn't

because I talk by seeing pictures and then describing them. I can't judge what I or someone else is saying at the time. But I know it so try hard not to get baited into situations where I say something before I think about it. Trump needs a plan for intelligence. Like maybe a pat answer of the day on all daily military issues that he practices before he goes out in public.

Total dyslexia move. Dyslexics love raw primary data. Then they

find their own patterns. In fact they can't process other's analysis with any fluency. Why are good at the sciences, politics, business, acting and other fields where finding simplicity in complex raw data is a virtue. But it would take Trump 30 years to have enough of a background in foreign affaires and espionage and war to be doing his own analysis of raw intelligence.

HOT HOT HOT! Did someone turn the heat up in here? Because the

Republicans just introduced the AHCA and it is about to get very hot in places where one finds rural older voters. They lose out. And then gerrymandering is up and coming. It does not bode well for the GOP. I noticed in the Discussionist the right is warning people not to get all pretentious-like and show publicly their interconnectedness to others. You know. Feelings. Because everyone knows feelings only belong in commercials where ceos can make money off them, or in elections where the GOP use feelings to fool people into voting for the them when the GOP's sole real agenda is to make rich people richer.

I wonder if this is why Obama is under attack this week.

Obama said he wanted to be deeply involved in the issue of gerrymandering. That would make the GOP go after him. And Trump who thinks he'll be running as far along as 2022. Maybe that is the real reason for Trump's lie about Obama this week. They need to kill the leader with the 60% approval who wants elections fairer and where the voters pick their politicians and not the other way around. Like the GOP need to destroy the old king before the new one can garner the loyalty of the masses.

Don't forget speculation that Trump will build health

savings accounts into his new health care plan. That would put money into the stockmarkets from every household in the USA that could afford it. Bidding the price of stocks up. This is speculation and the stocks would likely be quickly over valued. Hurting the very public who invest their health savings accounts in stocks. But hey the already rich would make a killing. Proving once again that markets don't work when the rich are exploiting the markets themselves using government.

Watch Harari talk about the two ways the world

could go: hyper nationalism or internationalism. He wrote "Sapiens" and "Homo Deus". This may explain why the rich in the US backed Brexit and Trump. Internationalism would mean that bigger problems like robots replacing humans and climate change could be fixed or solved.


(My thoughts) Some of the rich don't want those problems solved. With pollution and climate change there will be lots of people dying at 55. Not bad if you are some rich *** planning to live to 120. Not enough room on the planet otherwise. rich people can always move to clean climates like the Americas or southern africa. The rest of the world is over polluted if you look at climate maps of pollution. Also solving robotics taking jobs involves a basic income for all those unemployed. No wonder they don't want immigrants in the USA. In 20 years there will be high numbers of unemployed in the west as there is in the third world now. So it will be temp workers to fill the gaps now and a wall. Scary bunch of mother****ers.

And here is an bit on how Mercer backed brexit.
