How ironic. Spend massively on GM's top luxury car. Only get performance that was routinely found in foreign cars after 1992. Cadillac performance is equivalent to that in a 2002 Toyota Prius. So what is the point? Intentionally ignoring glaring facts can justify a bogus conclusion and personal insults?

Apparently personal insults (and hate promoted by Nazis, White Supremacists, and the KKK) in the tradition of Donald Trump is now acceptable behavior. Why would anyone have so low self-esteem as to associate themselves with Trump?

That VW engine is simply what should now be standard in all cars. It also says why cars have long not required 6 or 8 cylinders. Today's 4 cylinders are doing that once required big block V-8s. And therefore last longer.

Hopefully the life expectancy of a Trump administration will be worse than the life expectancy of obsolete technology V-8s.

The war is in Syria? Which one? Turkey vs Kurds? Daesch vs everyone? Syrian government vs rebels (a civil war)? Iran verses who? Russians verses anyone who is against Assad and not allied with Turkey or an American/Saudi/Gulf State coalition?

Well, somebody used illegal chemical weapons. So the belligerent party is defined as Syria. So why is Trump warning Russians that "nice, new, and smart weapons" will attack in 24 or 48 hours?

Are Russians the enemy - or Assad?

How to put US servicemen at greatest risk? And compromise the effectiveness of 'new, nice, and smart' weapons? Destroy the element of surprise. How dumb is that?

Well he only tweeted what he was last told - by Fox News. Then later in the day, apparently, the Generals had a pissy fit about his stupidity. And rightly so. How much dumber could Trump be.

So the 48 hour attack is off. Last persons he talked to apparently were intelligent people (still in his administration). You can tell. His attitude is now completely different. Just wait until he is told what to think tomorrow morning by Fox News.

Meanwhile, intelligent administration officials are trying to find cover for The Donald's belligerent ideals. Looking for allies to join in an attack.

How dumb was his previous attack? Well over $60million of weapons were wasted attacking obsolete aircraft and putting a few holes in runways (that were fixed that day). Even shelters for those obsolete planes were not destroyed. Large (complicated) machinery and tanks necessary to mix binary ingredients for Sarin gas - untouched.

That attack was to placate extremists whose penis get big when weapons are launched. It punished almost no one. Well it did kill six people. That would be over $10 million per dead person. And the bio-chemical equipment remained intact - untouched. And obviously observed by Russians also clearly stationed at that base who certified that all bio-chemical weapons had been removed.

How will he top last year's 'big dic' action? Russians have implied they will attack American ships if that missile attack occurs again. Did an 'all talk and little action' Trump back down? Whether he did or did not - on the world stage, he clearly did back down to Russian threats.

Trump weighs rejoining Trans-Pacific Partnership amid trade dispute with China

WOW.

Now, I know we're in the time of Fake News, but this sounds ... well, this sounds fake too, but only because it's 180 degrees from Trump's own position a year ago. Trump saying all things on all sides of all issues at all times isn't fake news, not even news news. But still... wow.

Quote:
President Trump ordered top administration officials Thursday to look at rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the sprawling trade pact he rejected three days after taking office.

The move would mark a stunning reversal for Trump, who sharply criticized the pact as a “disaster” and made opposition to global trade deals a centerpiece of his economic agenda as a candidate.

--snip--

Thursday’s order comes as Trump pushes forward on a chaotic revamp of the United States’ approach to global trade, seemingly veering from trade wars one day to multinational pacts the next. He has gone from assailing Canada and Mexico to saying he’s within striking distance of renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. He has both pilloried China and praised its leader, Xi Jinping.

But no reversal has been more extreme than his new flirtation with the TPP. His comments were so unexpected that White House officials, lawmakers, business groups and others weren’t sure whether Trump had made a calculated overture or if it was another whimsical idea that he would cool on soon.


As to the absurdity perspective, who the fuck would want to enter into a deal with him?!?! His only constant is change. How can you count on anything he says, what will he do? HA! What *won't* he do?

We're watching a narrow minded man, surrounded by yes men his whole life, suddenly being forced to take other perspectives. His brain must be a damn twitchy mess by now.

This is classic Trump. He thinks based upon his feelings in a past afternoon or hour. He clearly has no game plan or objectives - other than to promote himself. Which is why he even went before the Boy Scouts (as President) repeating his campaign speeches and promoting himself to Boy Scouts. (Tillerson was furious.)

More of this thought now come from Fox News. Especially from the morning TV show. You can all but guess what he is thinking by propaganda promoted on that morning TV show. Notice that is where he gets most of his replacements. Clearly not from doing any research.

Hell, he does not even read books. So where does he get intelligence (knowledge) from? From the part of the brain found in children - his emotions. Tillerson had it right. It was like babysitting a kid - who is also a bully.

What did Fox News tell him to believe today?

Opening act.

He's just warming up. "Obstruct justice for me, I make the penalty you suffer go away.". He didn't even know Scooter Libby, and he's willing to do this. It's pure messaging.

Howdy, everybody. [waves]

Trying to tell anybody Trump is not, er, cosmopolitan seems to me a mug's game -- pretty much like any other act of autohypnosis. Twitchy is the very thing I am not seeing. Sure, The Donald isn't the slickly articulate creature we might like to see and hear -- though tonight's speech was a good piece of warfighting rhetorical art, well executed -- but what of it? Does his machinery clatter? -- yes, it does, and a lot. The results, however -- ? Despite all the downtalking from the expected quarters (that these possibly otherwise intelligent people think The Unindicted Felon would have been a better choice is simply appalling; do these people have any idea how stupid they are or sound?), the results keep adding up to favorable. Favorable to the American republic, that is. That's a refreshing contrast with the previous guy, who was a socialist and an anti-American at heart -- with the unstinting support of one American major political party.

Hmm. The otherwise intelligent need to be fully intelligent, not just spottily so -- or too much of the national conversation is given over to idiot-savants.

Well, I stopped voting Democratic a while back. Anyway --

The guys you should be giving a listen to at least occasionally, so your thinking could never be mistaken for tw's unless tw astounds us by coming around, would be Sean Hannity, Mark Steyn, Larry Elder, Mark Levin, and some others. Particularly Levin -- formidable.
