Re: A president, communicating his agenda (promoting it, implementing it, or bemoaning how it's not bein' realized)...

...along with a whole whack of info on the personal, local, regional, national, and global levels moves folks to make & sell & buy, to spend or save, to risk or play it safe(er), daily, weekly, monthly, yearly. Trends (habits) form, nuthin' too concrete but firm enough for folks to make long(ish) t...

Re: what? no comments on, or pushback against, my brilliant analysis of, and snark about, the psych today piece?

Am I being accused of actually quoting you out of context, or you pulling a trick beacuse everything everyone says is always within a greater context than anyone could possibly present? I'm just saying this is a thread where he is being compared to the nazi, or something like that. I don't know tha...

Re: Trump's insane spree of destruction

So what is the supposed mechanism for a president directing the economy by pronouncement in both the immediate and long term? Day one, trump tweets that unemployment is really great and some small business owner in Utah panics at the prospect of unemployment hitting zero so he goes out an hires some...

I refer you to my previous on that one

"Only rubes believe presidents have much real time influence over the economy" But they do, if only by way of actin' as a steroid to economic confidence. Without implementing one policy, Trump inspired a whole whack of folks, bolstered their economic faith (not on the East or West coasts, of course...

Re: OUGHT from IS is Possible

Age you worthless hump. He just told you off for a straw man argument, and then showed you why his own argument is a straw man. If you were competent you would bury him. The pair of you are absolutely useless bastards.

Re: "He said he was going to get Obamacare repealed and replaced imediate upon taking office"

A promise predicated on the telegraphed intention of Congress to do just that once a friendly President was seated. A friendly president 'was' seated and Congress fell over itself backtrackin' and makin' a big show of 'repeal & replace', a construct that curiously didn't figure into the nearly 60 H...

Re: what? no comments on, or pushback against, my brilliant analysis of, and snark about, the psych today piece?

^[snipped]^ That's not giving the proper context for why I said that; For one, this is a thread about how his destructive ways are reminiscent of nazi germany and, well..saying stuff just doesn't make the grade for that, in my opinion. Am I being accused of actually quoting you out of context, or y...

Re: what? no comments on, or pushback against, my brilliant analysis of, and snark about, the psych today piece?

I think I should remind you that you wrote this yourself... It might not be terribly fair, but nobody focuses on Obama's minor legislative actions to assess his presidency, same goes for all presidents, current ones included. The thing is, very few seem to be focusing in on what trump is doing, at a...

Re: Quadrant Model

By the way, how do you know that that 'nutter' is younger and madder than me, I could be much more younger and much more 'madder'? No, you are stale and boring, your routine has played out. All you are good for is another round of RANDOMLY CAPITALISED outrage and a repetitive dose of "clarifying qu...

Go on tell us, we know you're dying to. We need to implement a queueing algorithm for these guys. Technically Ryan here is pushing in front of Woodster who is surely due to drop his second magnum opus any day now.

Let's be honest, he hasn't actually done an awful lot has he? I don't think he really has, either. However, I also believe this is pretty incompatible with the amount of trump-hatred in the world. It might not be terribly fair, but nobody focuses on Obama's minor legislative actions to assess his p...

Re: what? no comments on, or pushback against, my brilliant analysis of, and snark about, the psych today piece?

But the hallmark of populist policies is the simplification of complex issues; the presentation of easy looking solutions as "common sense"; and typically without aknowledging any downside to them. That would discount Corbyn, as his Brexit policy seems opaque, and is ridiculed as fence sitting. In ...

Re: what? no comments on, or pushback against, my brilliant analysis of, and snark about, the psych today piece?

Because Trump is a populist. There is no room for debate on that at least, no media outlet of any stripe presents him as a man with complex and fiddly solutions to any issue at all, Trump always says every problem is simple and he always promises a simple solution, often one he won't even describe ...

There are for this reason very few readers of that publication who view ANY populist political firebrand with approval, not ours (neither Corbyn nor Farage), not yours (not Trump, nor Bernie or AOC), not Bolsonaro, nor Duterte and so on all the way down. I do not think you can seriously lump Farage...
