Thread: Trump

  1. #4041

    I do wonder, listening to five live just now, whether liberal leftism is a core ingredient in the rise of far right. The caller epitomised intolerance, shouting down, bawling at, accusing and inflaming what sounded like a far calmer person who simply didn’t share his views on Trump. It was a classic how to make things worse, there was no attempt to understand his views or even acknowledge that like it or not MILLIONS of Americans voted for Trump. It’s was a bit like starting a negotiation with ‘right, you’re a c****...’ with a red face to boot. And what is the point, we don’t even live there, we have no say in the matter.
    “Everything about this looks wrong. The run-up is too long, too straight, and you know it’s going over the bar ... it goes over the bar, and Brighton have stolen a trip to Wembley! That is an absolute burglary! And that is the FA Cup!”

      Good point.

      However, once the Mail had reported it, would it be right for the ambassador to stay in that role?
      Given that he is right in his judgement, yes it would.

      He doesn't work for Trump.


      IMO!

      That"s one example of worthless degrees. There's more out there.

      Going to college doesn't make you more intelligent than those who didn't.

      As the recent college scandal has proven, there's a system of nepotism where kids are getting in because of who they know, not what they know.

      There also needs to be a break down of what subjects are favoured by Democrats and what favoured by Republicans.

      If the Democrats are churning out basic teachers and the Republicans are churning out Engineers then as an intelligence based subject Engineers are smarter than Teachers.


      As Mark Twain said "Lies, damned lies and statistics".
      What other degrees are "worthless" and how do you decide which degree has merit and which doesn't?

      "Going to college doesn't make you more intelligent than those who didn't" On what basis do you make this statement ( beyond personal prejudice). College entrance relies on a minimum academic achievement in secondary education. People who achieve higher grades at school are generally cleverer than those who don't. Now other issues affect academic achievement and college attendance ( primarily poverty and social class) but what evidence is there to refute the reasonable assumption that those who attend college are in general more intelligent than those who don't?

      Of the 1.9 million degrees awarded what percentage are achieved by people who gained their place through questionable means and what is their pass rate compared to the general population?

      "There also needs to be a break down of what subjects are favoured by Democrats and what favoured by Republicans." Imo this is your best question, it could well be that one group favours degrees which are harder to achieve. Unfortunately you haven't proffered any evidence of what that breakdown may be.

      What is you basis for assuming engineers are smarter than teachers?

      On the basis the scores required to get into an Engineering degree are higher than that of Teachers.

      Teaching is easier to get into than engineering.

      He was right in his judgement (IMO). It doesn't matter than he doesn't work for Trump - the question is whether it's important that our ambassador to the US has a good relationship with the US. I don't know about these things, but I'd guess that it is important.
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      Do you have any data to support that? Also what about the other three questions and any luck with finding anything on the types of degrees democrats and republicans have ?

      I think it would be less important if we weren't so constrained by Brexit. The timing of this leak is hugely significant with Johnson coming in as PM.

      Farage also jumped on this extremely quickly, which tells you all you need to know. Someone wanted him Darroch and the police need to find out who did this.

      That is a good question and perhaps the answer is 'no.

      The Mail knew that so this was a deliberate act of anti-British treachery (with the only winner being Trump).

      Good old Mail. But it would be wrong of me to bring up their past support for Hitler. Very wrong indeed.
