As opposed to the morons who just back tax cuts vote.  The Ayn Rand vote?

But what does Art Laffer think?
 
2020-09-22 7:42:27 PM  
Smart people should stop endorsing him.  It feeds the reds.
Biden voters are going to vote for Biden.
Trump voters are going to vote for Trump.
Undecideds are obviously stupid so they will fear and hate people smarter than themselves.

It does seem like there's a better way to manage the economy than the conservative method of saying "it's not my fault shiat is all farked up."
 
2020-09-22 7:44:30 PM  
I mean, sure, Nobel Prize winners endorsed him, but has he ever been nominated for a Noble Peace Prize like Donald Trump?

On the downside, Americans are not interested in facts.
We only use the opinions of personalities and stars to make decisions now.
 
2020-09-22 7:48:37 PM  
Oh yeah?!?  Well Sir President Donald J. Trump, leader of the kick-ass United States of America, not only has the endorsement of a Medal of Super-dooper Freedom winner, but he's personal friends with him!  Ain't that right, Rush?  Rush?  Um... Mr. Limbaugh?  Oh shiat, get the Oxy away from him...
 
2020-09-22 7:48:42 PM  
Can't we just hold the election now and get it over with? At this point, doesn't everyone already know who they're voting for?

Economists are a step below astrologists, at least they can probably figure out that an economy doesn't work if people can't afford things they need to exist between sessions of deciding what to do based on where mercury is.

Well golly, if only Biden had been president for the last four years, making hundreds of controversial decisions he could be asked all that scary trigonometry too. I mean, all those lame reporters do is ask him questions about his platform and policy and he already knows the answers to those. How is Trump supposed to answer those questions when he doesn't even know what he intends to do with his next term or even have a party platform to follow since the RNC didn't seem to come with one this year? Clearly, the Media set this up.

They aren't afraid of people smarter than them.  They have guns and an imaginary friend and street smarts.

I recall a time i was lost in my thoughts in middle school and a sister farking bible humper took me as an example as someone with book smarts, while he had street smarts.  I remarked "you live on a dirt road and would shiat your pants if you found yourself on a city street "

Well that was a lie, but i totally would have owned him with that twenty five year old come back.

Alebak: Economists are a step below astrologists, at least they can probably figure out that an economy doesn't work if people can't afford things they need to exist between sessions of deciding what to do based on where mercury is.


The social sciences have been belittled and disparaged to the point where arguing out of ignorance is treated as equally sound. It's partly why Trump won, as people are led to believe that those who lucked their way into wealth are somehow more informed about economics than actual economists.

"The financial crises of the past two decades, and our failure to predict them, have wreaked havoc on more than just the global economy. The bursting of the dot-com bubble in 2000, the Enron scandal and the global financial crisis of 2008 have led to a loss of faith in economics itself.

But these crises and scandals do not mean that the science of economics is inherently unreliable. Most of them occurred because we ignored what we knew.

Perhaps most obviously, we deputized - and continue to deputize - the wrong people as authorities. For instance, many assume that the real experts on the subject of money are those who have a lot of it. But the opinions of wealthy tycoons are often dissociated from scientific evidence, out of touch with reality and all too plainly wrong. Amassing wealth as an individual is not the same thing as building and sustaining broad economic growth across nations. Often, making a private fortune is a matter of luck. 'Fortuna' is the Latin word for luck, after all."

It has been demonstrated conclusively to be the case that if major economic decisions were made according to a completely fabricated astrological economic chart (i.e random) then the results are better than taking the advice of major economists.

The same is true to a greater extent for stock market predictions and to an even greater extent for horse racing betting.

Anyone who predicts anything is making it up and their own biases make them overall worse than random.

Even the predictions in this post are fabricated and biased. Who CAN you believe?

Still don't understand this line of attack from the Reich as Dotard is the biggest moron ever in office and forgets what he says 1 second after he says it...Hell he cannot even pronounce his only name.

Then again, I guess when you cannot tout accomplishments or anything, you resort to childish attacks.

The funny thing is that Donald probably would get tripped up by the "orange" question.

Or at least spend 15 minutes on a nonsensical tangent while trying to dodge answering it.

Trump is an objectively stupid person. Pretending he isn't is a show of loyalty to those who value loyalty to an arbitrary cause over common sense.

Anyway It doesn't take a genius to see that Trump's economic plans are not sustainable, just having eyes should do. It seems that eyes are a thing that the GOP can't spare with their head firmly up Trump's ass, waiting for the next quivering payload to bless their lips.

I get it now, the bubbles go with what the candidates hear, not what was actually asked. So when Dumpy is asked what color the sky is it comes across as a rocket science question to him and when Biden is asked about his policy it's about as mundane as asking him about the color of the fruit because he knows what he's talking about.

And here I had you pegged as a MAGA. Congrats on proving me wrong.

You got it backwards, dumbfark.

"Why do you want to be president?" is the new GOTCHA question.
Because "to grift and stay out of prison" isn't what the rubes want to hear.

I wonder how many trig functions it takes to describe "Why do you want to be president" to the dumbest sociopath in the world.

That's the thing I find interesting about Trumpanzees - how they address those of us who were so much smarter and righter than they were.
We TOLD them what would happen if they elected this clown, and nevertheless, they persisted.
And now, everything we predicted happened.
And nothing they predicted happened.
Four years of Trump and unemployment is 15%, all our international credibility is gone and we have no allies, our country has been ravaged by what would have been an easily controllable disease.
And yet - they are still telling us how dumb we are, and how smart they are.
It is total disconnection from reality - a true cult phenomenon.
