Yours is the percentage (38) reported here as being for the Scotts. For all British it's been 51.9%. i'm so sorry.

Would the "No" side of "Should Scotland be an independent country'? with 2,001,926 (55.3%) voting against independence and 1,617,989 (44.7%) voting in favor; also, be correct?

I think about this thread from time to time. Like on the half hour. . .

I just can't keep up. It would be easier if it were a ticker or the crawl at the bottom of your screen.

My OMFG meter keeps breaking. Words fail me.

It is all a little surreal.

It is like some strange sci-fi dystopia come true.

For too long we watched our politicians sitting around doing nothing. We felt that we weren't getting anything for our money. Now we watch them running around like chickens with their heads cut off ... doing nothing. We're still not getting our money's worth; but, if we don't find our politicians enlightening, we should at least find them entertaining. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was closing its doors just as the Trump Whitehouse was opening its. We Americans have impeccable timing.

The idea behind this thread has long ago been swamped by the antics of the thread's subject. Still, he manages to surprise, surpassing his own dubious records with comically juvenile statements like this:

Yes, yes, Mr President. We *know* you have a button, it's the one the leader of the DPRK is jumping up and down on. You can't be shamed, but you damn sure can be baited.

Unfortunately, this is the kind of coocoo horseshit a segment of his base wants. As much as you and I enjoyed No Drama Obama despite his failings some folks prefer bluster constant fucking bullshit. They wanted a disgusting individual and we all get him.

You're shortchanging those who just wanted to see more of Ivanka.

An excellent short read on the Decline of Anti-Trumpism.

Quote:
The anti-Trump movement suffers from insularity. Most of the people who detest Trump don’t know anybody who works with him or supports him. And if they do have friends and family members who admire Trump, they’ve learned not to talk about this subject. So they get most of their information about Trumpism from others who also detest Trumpism, which is always a recipe for epistemic closure.

David Brooks remains one of the great analysts of his industry. His conclusions routinely include interesting twists in what must always exist to have knowledge - the reasons why.

Having said that, he forgets to mention an example of his first point:
Quote:
First, people who go into the White House to have a meeting with President Trump usually leave pleasantly surprised. .. They generally say that he is affable, if repetitive. He runs a normal, good meeting and seems well-informed enough to get by.
So did Hitler. First impressions (also called emotions) are deceiving. Hitler was popular because he did what Trump does. He was a raving maniac to his less educated supporters. And he carefully manipulated the informed with effective spin and reasoning combined with strategically appropriate and well practiced insults. That has always been a Trump trump card.

George Jr's administration did same. But did not have to learn how to work around their president. George Jr rarely made decisions. He could not even get out of the child's chair in FL as planes were crashing into the WTC. He waited to be told what to do.

Trump would not do that. He would recklessly strike out unless his subordinates told him how to think before he could have an emotion. That is David Brook's second point.
