I cannot remember when I've heard
such a prejudiced statement where a person admits to having formulated an opinion based solely on how they already feel and the reinforcement of the musings of others. I'll presume (and I suspect correctly) that you'd not consider Bannon a wealth of reliable information in most cases, but, in this one (because it's reported by others that he echoes your sentiments) Bannon is on target. Good grief. Can closed minds get any tighter than this?
RE: based solely on how they already feel
How they already feel because something THEY observed and heard with THEIR OWN eyes and ears?
Seems a logical way to make a decision.
If you don't believe your own eyes and ears...what can you believe?
Even if I read the book
I would just be reading what that author wrote.
Is it true?......flip a coin.
It does seem to reinforce the many reports that have come out over the past year.
I suppose the book and the many reports over the past year could all be false.
Somehow I doubt it.
If you want to deny all of it that's your business.
"It does seem to reinforce the many reports that have come out over the past year."
reinforce, or parrot?
Telling a lie twice doesn't reinforce anything.
RE:Telling a lie twice doesn't reinforce anything.
There have been many reports from different sources all saying the same thing.
Trump is a vain moron.
Now he thinks he's a genius.
You can watch video feeds of the guy.....he lives on fantasy island.
If you want to deny all of them that's fine.
Many reports from different sources??
Reports claiming Trump is a moron
My short and inconclusive check shows that you are partially correct. It appears that at least one person has called Trump a moron but that multiple news agencies have reported that same person's statement. Shall I presume that Mr. Tillerson is on your list of reliable person's.
Know idea but the statement seems accurate.
Know what idea?...or did you mean "no" idea? If so, I think your timing is very bad when such things are done while criticizing another person for a lack of smarts.
Know vs no
Your like another member we have who will criticize for a typo.
I understand that I'm not fit to be the prez.
Trump does not understand that he's not fit to be the prez.
Listen up, Bob.
"You're like" is correct, not "your".
"Prez" should be capitalized, out of respect for the man, if not the office. Anyway, it was Lester Young who was the Prez.
[Did I get that right?]
It's "will criticize a typo". "criticize for a typo" makes know sense. ['Will criticize for food", maybe?]
Do as I say. This WILL be on the midterm.
That's one of the reasons I'm not fit to be prez (Prez).
Spelling and grammar are not my strong points.
Need more practice.
Don't feel bad[ly].
My own mother, The Adverb Lady, corrected our grammar on the fly all the time. ["It's badly, not bad!"]
Wouldn't even let us write "Xmas"; disrespectful. "But, Mom, X is the first letter of Christ, in Greek!" "I don't care. It's Christmas, in this house!"
I love the Christmas season
no matter how the word is spelled or misspelled. What I really like is what I'm doing now...which is trying to untangle the *&#@!*% wad of lights I took down yesterday.
Aren't you supposed to...
...toss them in the box and let your wife do that next Christmas?
Haven't you picked up that wrapping paper yet?
I call that "cat toys"
why should I mess up their fun?
Don't be offended
If you note the stupid emoticon, it was meant to inject a small amount (very small) of humor and not to call you out. Because you were trying to present the president as a moron based on what others might be saying about him, I saw that small flaw as an weak way to do so. I could have said "Whose calling who a moron?" and done the same but also injected my own grammar mistake. Do you see it?
I suppose we could draw this out by searching for a real definition of "moron" rather than use it as a "catch all" for persons with whom we greatly disagree or think they act oddly. I won't disagree that Trumps media persona does not fit that of past presidents and is even a bit embarrassing at times, but I don't think the man fits the classic definition of a moron. I do think that, at some point, it's better to focus on a person's policies, ideas and performance rather than their presence. Criticizing someone strictly for their personality is, IMO, largely a waste of words. It's not as though you'd like to consider the man to be in your own circle of friends.
BTW, I have deliberately left at least two errors in this post. You're free to find them and jump on me for them.
It did for Goebbels.
And that's why...
Goebbels has Noebbels at all!
Never mind the ********, then?
Sex Pistols as I recall.
Yep, you got it.
"All watched over ..."
The word I typed was similar to "bullocks", and related, I think.
Man, this forum s/w is a ditch!
It was the Sex Pistols' first LP. Got it?
Yep, I got it.
FWIW, I hated that "music", I grew up with '50s and 60s music and this was a load of carp to me. "Theme from a summer place" is one of my faves.
We must be of similar age
Theme music was quite popular. Mancini and others were big names in that genre. Any Bond theme made the charts. I liked the simple stuff stuff as well as some of the surprisingly good voices some singers had. Today's music, IMO, is mostly junk and is played constantly in places I go to shop. It's all electronically manipulated and sounds horrible. There was a song called "Silence is Golden" done by a British group. It was a goofy song done with a falsetto voice in the background but the title suits my desire at times.
all the old heavy metal rockers...
...are now looking at each other and saying, "We thought we needed to put some music in with all the noise, and now we see we really didn't".
Can agree mostly with this James.
But then Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix kick in. One of my fave bands? The Eagles.
Eagles told stories.
"Silence Is Golden".
