    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    Though it must be said that it's not -all- electric cars having that problems, but specifically Tesla: the hyperhyped, status-symboled, highly-fanaticized, car that is very interesting but rather normal and if you try to say that in public you get reprimended as if you had insulted God in a...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    LeV, I'll start by saying that on this subject (how to get out of poverty) I have a soft spot for what you say, because it is indeed true for some people and because so many people complain endlessly but than make poor, poor choice. Yet I cannot really agree with you for the same reason why I...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Then talk about the matter at hands and do not ask where the others were. What Trump did was disgraceful, what other people do cannot take away or add anything from or to it. So why talking about that? BTW, kick away that overgrown child. He is making the US look dumb. So dumb they can't agree...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    The first reason is: they had an alliance with the US, not with Europe; the deal was made with the US and was broken by the US. The second reason is: the kurds are a specific group and have more in common, on a cultural point of view, with the West than any of the other ethnic group in the...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Kudos for the US killing Al Baghdadi. This is a political victory for Trump. It is clearly not that great as it would have been some years ago, due to the fact that ISIS is a lower threat than it was back then, and it is clearly a small victory compared to the defeat of the US withdrawal and...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Rationalizations and wildly broad generalizazion do not help. What they do is they allow you to dwell in the delusion that everybody who does not think like you is bad, wrong, envious and their ideas and thoughts are in one way or another unworthy of attention. This is because you don't want to...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    I don't know whether this will result in Trump's impeachment or he will reach the end of his term, but his reputation is already shattered beyond any possibility of repair by the long series of infamous acts and lies he managed to made public himself. There is maybe a need to proof something...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Yes, it smells BS, and yet it is real. Now that we have determined that and you have seen it, do you accept it? And what do you take out of it? Is that ok with you, or do you think that was wrong? Would the answer be the same if the same action was made by someone you don't like (say, for...

    The narcissistic buffoon is at it again. He should be in the lists of social services for mental illness, not sitting in the chair of the POTUS.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Most of the arguments in the Trump debate are the same that were discussed in the Berlusconi debate. Sometimes verbatim. And as I said to the italians, so I say to the americans: look at yourselves in the mirror and try to understand what has gone wrong.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    This is exactly the double standard I was talking about, and it really shows in the difference between him and other people: you could get fired for less than what he has done multiple times, for example if you embarassed the company you work for in public, yet he can modify a map with a marker...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Three years in the Office and he still makes these massive blunders. Is what he has done so far enough to judge him a terrible US President, or does the benefit of the doubt depends on how much people want something to be true and extends indefinitely for the right people? I ask because I...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Turkey's influence has grown, Russia's influence has grown, Iran's influence has grown, the US influence has fallen sharply. This does not only apply there, but everywhere. It is a solid indication of what is happening all around the world: the US are fading out slowly and the long period of...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    If that's the case, it's Turkey winning a war with less fighting and losses than expected. It would not exactly be the same kind of peace as if the war never happened. 300.000 people displaced from their homes do. And BTW, the conflict is way more than 40 years old; the kurds will continue...
