Congress / courts / constitution.

He chafes at these restrictions.

In his business/mafia world he was the Don.....the boss.

No one said No to what he wanted.

Trump persona. He 'handles' staff turmoil by gradually making things uncomfortable for the next deletee [Sanders?], until they leave. 'Doesn't like confrontations'.
Now confronts heads of friendly states.
Then, the Trump meme: "You're fired!"
What if people from Saturn replaced Trump in 2016 ...
Just a thought. I'm apolitical. Saturn, and Trump, are your problems.

Sounds like an employer

I once had - most of the substandard folks he ever hired were *not* fired by him, which made it hell on those of us who actually knew what we were doing. They either left for better pastures or we had to practically ostracize them into doing so. One particular guy performed well enough to do well in "the numbers" but was almost universally disliked by twelve other co-workers. One of the few people I've actually hated with a vengeance - and it took about a year before he was out of our hair. Our dislike of him seemed to only boost his ego : he was one of those kinds of people, trying to climb over other workers backs, "corporate style" in an industry that was not.

Anyway, like President Trump, he was reared on the notion that if you are not "winning" than you are losing. Zero-sum game for *everything*, literally. I've rarely met such naked avarice face-to-face. At least Trump is bare-faced about it, this guy tried to act like he actually cared about others, like most narcissists.

Politics, IMO, are best debated
Jun 26, 2018 2:58PM PDT

when one does not place labels on themselves or others. Sticking to the individual issues rather than identifying them with a party can be difficult but it can be done. When discussing those in office, use their real names and not pejorative terms. To do otherwise diminishes the value of ones own words. I know that a good number of own own politicians are guilty of this including our president but behaving the same way only places you at the same low level as the one you may be criticizing.

I called President Trump by his name. If you research his upbringing you might notice his father instructed him in the "zero-sum game" mentality I mentioned. I'll stand by my characterization of that, avarice and narcissism. Just my opinion, but also shared by *many* in the psychiatric community when asked for an analysis of him - though those are of course tempered by the disclaimer that they have not personally examined him, just from spoken, written, etc. evidence. This alone is almost un-heard of in the community - take from that what you may.

at the final line of your post...that you wish you were apolitical. I believe it's acceptable to consider oneself as such by just not be totally engaged in politics. FWIW, I find myself being swayed more by the behavior of people toward a candidate or office holder than words or actions of that candidate or office holder. If a pit bull is being harassed by 1000 chihuahuas, I'm going to sympathize with the pit bull.

for the clarification - I was kind of puzzled, should have asked exactly what you were referring to. My apologies for misconstruing.

I guess the spectrum of political 'involvement' gets shortened rather than broadened sometimes, to the point of polarity. Or at least it seems that way, sometimes.

I like Neil deGrasse Tyson's "The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it" - too bad so called political science is not a "hard science", eh? :^)

You have a problem with the truth

BO couldn't get anything passed in Congress, except Obamacare and even then Reid had to change the rules to get it done along with bribery, threats, and lies, even when he had both houses in his pocket....he passed more intrusive and destructive EO's than any other president in history. Trump has repeatedly said that he wants Congress to do their work and pass laws, but without Dem support for anything he wants, nothing is getting done....unless the Repubs finally pick up the Harry Reid baton and change the rules again. AND the Constitution/SCOTUS has ruled in FAVOR of Trump as often as they ruled AGAINST BO.

Liberals have a problem with the 3 C'S.....Cooperation, Concession, and Constitution.

Congress has some extreme groups on both sides of the aisle.

Makes it difficult to get any bill passed.

Let's see what happens with the immigration bill in the house.

The repubs have enough votes to pass it......can they?

Ask Bernie Sanders
Jun 27, 2018 8:20PM PDT

how many of the bills HE composed that ever even came up for a vote in all the years he was in the Senate.....Another long time seat bit the dust last nite by another Socialist because as usual the Dem took his position for granted and didn't even bother to show up for one of the debates and sent a surrogate in his place instead. Now THAT'S 'entitlement' for you.

He's too far left for me.
