Apparently there are limits to #Trump’s ability to create his own reality …
Washington (CNN)House Speaker Paul Ryan is at the White House to tell President Donald Trump that Republicans don’t have the votes to pass the GOP health care bill.
Now for more of #Trump’s #bully tactics …
Bannon Tells Trump: ‘Keep a Shit List’ of Republicans Who Opposed You
The only “gift” i get from Trump is a grand example of what not to do … but i have plenty of those already.
Sorry, but no #thanks Mr #Trump. too bad about confusion lurking beneath the monkey see monkey do happening for the rest of you lovable blokes.
← which, of course, you can believe or not just according to your own biases.
If you want to talk about the gift to you of Trump as President, or why you are in a reality where Trump is present, you are welcome to do so over there at How to really TRUMP Trump.. If you want talk “about what Trump is doing”, about “Turmps limitations”, or talk “about” Trump in any way, including Trump Bashing. Please do that here or elsewhere. Those are not the topics at How to really TRUMP Trump.. Over there please talk about yourself, not Trump.
#BTW, i do not believe i have a choice not to be i a reality where Trump is present … even though your #VooDoo imagines that i do. Or said differently i can choose not to be in such a reality, but then i would be choosing to live in #LaLaLand … but i choose to live in a world in which i can trust my senses to inform me objectively regarding that which is not me.
I have always respected your and Mark’s such requests.
I will not have you putrefying the quote of someone I value like this.
You have not such say in the matter.
I would not want to do that. And this is the first time anyone here has broken that stipulation. I am willing to forgive. But in the future, if someone requests that you remove, or change, content from their curated thought … it is your responsibility to do so. This is not open for discussion.
Both of you at times have requested that of me, and I have compiled. I expect the same human courtesy from you. Thanks.
There is no love in your message. That “” is a lie.
In posting here, I have always trusted that “the owner has ultimate say in his content” … and that by the way is the rule both you AND Mark put forward from the start.
That rule is still partially on the honor system here. You fucking broke it and you have the nerve to call me black?
That thought in group politics garnered that honest response from me. You suppressed my initial response. Okay fine … that was reasonable. You can even shut off dialogue if you must preach your peculiarities in that open group with no interference from others. That is the way this site is working … and you even designed it to work that way.
You trying to force my action against my will under threat of consequences, will not work, my friend.
I think we have said enough on the subject.
I have followed the rules of honor and good behavior in public dialog in this matter. You have simply been a brat in this. Accept that and move on and in the future, be honorable. Thanks.
but i will not unthink that which i have honestly and authentically already thought and still #RingsTrue to me in that context. that would be telling a lie … a lie that you would be forcing me to tell.
Your content is safe and sound and even still in group politics where you can do anything you like with it. I only don’t want it associated to my thought where it is not realted. That is all.
In the future, the finial feature will work just like tags do now. You will be able to delete anything from a thought you own and no one will be able to see it except the author. The tag system for that was a test of that protocol meeting the 3 Laws, and it has worked well, so when I get a chance I will port that ideaology to comments.
1) You broke the honor system giving me the right to do as I will in this matter.
2) What I did still complied with the 3 Laws so I, or you, would have had the right to do it anyway.
We just could not have done it in page, yet.
All that is left is to get #SeriTD to fully apply the 3 laws via code and we will have a perfect system.
However, if he ever added you in the past as a member, then by the rules of #TD space you have equal right to change anything in it as he does, unless you and him made a specific agreement otherwise … so in that case, just look up the password and log-in and change things. Recovery of a lost password that was not intentionally changed to remove you from the group is honorable.
but anyway forming a consensus re how to introduce a common group between dueling parties is fraught with a lot of difficulty … i was waiting until there might might be a time of good will when we would have common motives to introduce the group … otherwise whatever i did would be a tug of war of negative feelings.
the only thing specific to an author, and not author rights in a group, is control of own comments.
If this gossip is true, it sure is not a good example of creating one’s own reality … blaming others for one’s failures.
#Trump is no “gift” and no example for Americans to follow.
Let us not be confused !
as in the follow quote that nathan is touting ...
First, I did not say that quote. I made it very very clear that one of my close friends said that quote to me. It was an epiphany for them. That is the whole reason I didn’t want things associated to it that don’t relate to it. Please remove my name from it.
Second, I have never ever said Trump was good at creating “his own reality”. In fact, if you had ever asked, I would have said he appears to be rather horrible at that.
What I said was that Trump was good at getting people to think about what he wants them thinking about, no matter if it is positive thoughts or if it is negative thoughts. Look it up. That is exactly what I always say. And that goes to collective reality, not Trump’s own reality.
#LOA is very simple. Most likely the simplest systems there is. IMHO your wanting it to look bad or fail somewhere and lately that has been causing you to misread a lot that I say.
I guess we could call it “Modern Politics”.
But really, why have more than one? Why are you so staunch on people doing Politics “your way”? How come you are God and Sayer of what Politics IS?
So why are you slandering our views which are simply reflective of the changes?
[thought 22829] – is the guiding light of this group.
The slander is “May I suggest the group name [Mary Poppins Politics] or perhaps [Bozos Leftist Rag] as possibles”.
Even though I would be honored to be associated to Mary Poppins, I know that when you say it, is is slander, because you think Mary Poppins is not a good example of something to strive for. So, as with the thought of a $100 bill yesterday, the energy you are sending out is that of false representation (slander) or a put-down. Or I often just lump all those together and call it a shitting upon, but I didn’t say that this time.
So I will still call it slander and I think most would agree.
For me politics is the art of getting things to happen among people …
an art that is near and dear to my heat
I will contribute to this group no more under your banner.
cc mark, nathan
is that in talking about politics any opinion is as good as any other opinion. There is no authority nor proof worth any more than any other …. politics levels out equality as the vote. In math & science there may be other things. I think Trump proved in part quite a lot by becoming president.
1520s, "science of government," from politic (adj.), modeled on Aristotle’s ta politika "affairs of state," the name of his book on governing and governments, which was in English mid-15c. as "Polettiques." Also see -ics.Politicks is the science of good sense, applied to public affairs, and, as those are forever changing, what is wisdom to-day would be folly and perhaps, ruin to-morrow. Politicks is not a science so properly as a business. It cannot have fixed principles, from which a wise man would never swerve, unless the inconstancy of men’s view of interest and the capriciousness of the tempers could be fixed. [Fisher Ames (1758-1808)]
Meaning "a person’s political allegiances or opinions" is from 1769.
No #RWGBoomerang s on this please!
ask: if you were in a real f2f group, would you shout so very loud?
I suspect it is Trump that is taking more action than his predecessor & that is why the lazy politicians object the upsetting of their comfortable, easy job security & swamp.
