Trump is not an idiot, nor are most of the people around or against him.

 

what are the odds that before the election they all bought stock in CNN, Rachel Maddow show, etc and use the insipid tweeting and coup- ing to add to the way they profit from the gummit?

 

it's a match made in Hell.  Him against Them with the fulcrum of the media in the middle. All  of them win. We lose

I have no doubt that he trump has found more than one way to profit from his time in washington. 

 

I'm damn sure he is not there to make the world a better place for the rest of us, and I agree that he has an agenda that is likely forwarded by the turmoil he causes.

The trouble with going after personalities, and I admit it's easy to do, is that it brings everyone who comes in at their personal levels.  Some folks will be butt hurt that their perceived images are under attack.  We don't know how or why anyone else comes to these images.  It's as plain as day, common sense to us, but it's the same for that other perspective too.  But that's not our perspective.  Is ours the all-seeing perspective?  It's the one we have, so what's that guy's excuse, eh? 

 

So, even with this guy, Trump, at least he's not Hillary, right?

I often find Occam's Razor to be too dull and poorly-suited to use in the context of politics, conspiracies, economic agendas, etc..

 

On the other hand, I also often find that Hanlon's Razor tends to slice and dice those topics with relative ease. The most common version of it is:  Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

 

I would amend it to read "...which appears to be adequately explained by stupidity" since it can be real hard to tell for sure one way or the other.

I just got a used DVD of the Bill Murray version of The Razor's Edge today, so now I have a loaner of this favorite flick.  How are you fixed for blades?

Very well practiced, both in their use and in their forceful removal from the possession of others (mainly rhetorically speaking, but also hand-to-hand).

 

I've noticed that one of the effects of psychedelics that can really freak some people out is that they sometimes reveal with panic-inducing clarity just how sharp the razor's edge that we've all been walking on the whole time really is.
