• Scott "Dilbert" Adams perceives the onset of Trump Act III

    Aug 24, 2016 @ 2:18 am - Maynard

    Adams has long argued that although Trump is fallible, he is not and has never been a loose canon or out of control. Adams has perceived a meticulous campaign of persuasion throughout, and this has propelled Trump to victory thus far. But now Hillary has a persuasive line too, going sharply negative on Trump, and scoring hits that have let her pull ahead. If this were a movie, Adams observes, it's time to segue from the “fun” of the second act to the “serious” third act, in which the protagonist — good-hearted but flawed — changes himself for the better, and proves himself worthy of the happy ending the audience wants. In expressing his “regret” for his past excessive rhetoric, Trump is making the dramatic pivot that the moment requires of him. Adams predicts Trump will stay true to that pivot, and this will work in Trump's favor. Adams offers an interesting way of looking at it, and not one to be casually discarded.

    Aug 14, 2016 @ 1:31 pm - RedMoonProject

    “Anonymous Conservative” is a blog site that I have been spending a fair amount of time reading in recent days and which I would recommend to all conservatives. In this series of essays he makes the case that liberals have a radically different psychology than conservatives and that when interacting with them we need to be aware that their goals in a debate have little to do with logic or reason and everything to do with protecting their very delicate and precarious emotional state. This fact can, and should, be used against them at every opportunity and in this series of posts he shows how conservatives can learn to do just that.

    Prior to the 1928 Olympics, the President of the USOC died and MacArthur was put in charge. He tied sports to American exceptionalism and the U.S. Olympians were very successful.
