I think this is a far worse problem now because a lot of people feel the need to keep up with the Joneses and look good on social media.

Hasn't made one substantial point but I respect his effort.

Hell,I understand where he's coming from...I voted for Walter Mondale as a college student.

What's your excuse for having the politics of a college student?


I dunno. Various successful professional experiences including military, corporate America, and running 2 successful businesses. Growing up with serous impediments to success but ending up in the top 95% of earners in this country. Hiring the kind of men that so many would love to write off and helping them flourish and seeing them lead teams of their own. Spending time in 15 different countries and living in 12 different states.

Maybe it's simply that I'm educated, actively anti-bias, and caring about my fellow individuals. Maybe it's that I look to identify my own bias critique & laugh at that of others. Maybe I'm interested in truth instead of confirmation. Maybe I like facts and hate liars. Maybe I look at the march of history and learn lessons I'd like applied today.

Maybe I'm naturally skeptical, so when those inside your bubble tell you to trust nobody but them I looking for and find their BS more easily. Maybe I like math, so when someone tells me 1+1=3 I think they're an idiot or a liar. Maybe I like to be on the right side of history. Maybe I like the idea of egalitarianism and equality of opportunity. Maybe I'm just a fricking free thinker.

Maybe I look at this and say the idiots who are fooled by this moron have to be on the wrong side.

Take you pick of those or take this one: Maybe I'm just smarter than you too.

The medical excuse covers 2 areas. 1) they lost income during the medical duress. 2) the bills are still there from the medical duress. As deeprig said, medical bills are nowhere near as damaging/suffocating as credit or installment debt. The root cause of the issue was the lost income on an otherwise maxed out lifestyle. The "medical bills" catch the reason in those pretty surveys, though.


That's the problem. We have professionals who spend their entire lives doing something, and some dude (it's actually a lot of people from many political camps - but in America it's more on the right than anywhere else) comes by and says I'm not going to listen to you because I don't like what you found.

It's counterproductive.

Go back to UGA, become an economists or statistician, spend time learning the macroeconomics undergirding medical finance, then come talk to me about why they're wrong.

OR tell me where this number came from and why they're biased and show me who has the right information and why they're right instead. Also, just in case we need to state the obvious, "I don't know shit, but this guy is on my side," is woefully fricking insufficient.

You realize that the context of this is that people are telling him he must be perfect for his detractors to not to be able to criticize him, right?

Listen to the context in the first 10 seconds. He's talking about process crimes and Mueller coming after him. Meaning people that are judging him for minor BS like "process crimes".

His friend told him he "must be perfect". "Must be..."??

How do you not understand that context? If he "must be" something, it means that's an expectation, when used in the context of people judging him.

He wasn't "bragging that he's perfect". He was saying that his standard for people judging him seems to be the level, "perfection".


See, this is the problem. You claim you're intelligent and unbiased, but you can't even get this correct.

You want it so bad to be him doing some absurd self-congratulations, that you can't even process the proper context.

And you got bamboozled by this video and didn't question it because YOU are the one who lives in an echo-chamber/bubble.

Yes, everyone on the interwebs is a multimillionaire with a stellar resume and some type of military background but I do love the part about hiring men that "many would write off"
This is an added bonus.

So if someone disagrees with your opinion they aren't educated,unbias and don't "care" about people?

Do you have one ounce of self awareness? Do you REALLY think you're unbiased about anything?

With time, reality will dawn on most cult members. SARS-2 is a wildfire in heavily populated states governed by Trump cultists. Those governors are having a come-to-Jesus moment. Hospitalization curves are climbing. November is approaching. Trump knows he fricked up.

Stop! You are saying unpopular things and the alt-right cannot accept the fact they and their views are NOT the majority.

That's probably where the sense of grievance comes from. Democracy is founded on some fairly lofty principles. These people simply cannot tolerate democracy. There's a core 35-40 percent who are still closeted racists, history deniers, people living off Facebook news, those with no concern about social issues (only their own little family bubble) and others in that big basket of deplorables who keep talking about "their country."

One more generation and these folks will shrink to about 20-25 percent and it's only going to go down from there. Hence the desperation. They are fighting the future.

Trump is the last gasp of this but the comical irony is that like them, he's about himself and his family - not about them. Even if not in office, you better believe he will figure out a way to bilk millions of dollars out of his idiot base through some club or a Fox show.

The devoted followers will learn what alums of Trump University learned but, unlike those hapless suckers, the followers will have no legal recourse.

WTF, dude. Nobody ever said that about him! You really can't see that? Really? Or are you just being dishonest?
That is not a thing people say to each other. Period.

He was OB-VI-OUS-LY lying right out of his slack-jawed, moron mouth because he believes (correctly I'm now learning) that his followers aren't smart enough to catch it. He used the 'my friend said' BS to say that about himself. It's blatantly fricking obvious.

Even Hannity rolled his eyes.

You really can't see that? My god.

You're completely bypassing what I said about context.

Again, he wasn’t saying he is perfect, he was saying that people’s expectations are so unreasonable, the standard he is judged by is “perfection”.

In other words, he feels like he must be absolutely perfect in everything he does, because if he does even the most minor thing wrong, he is admonished for it.

Why else would he go from talking about Mueller’s team trying to hang him for process crimes to saying people tell him he “must be perfect”?

Whether there’s a physical person who said that or not is irrelevant. The point is he believes he is judged at the unreasonable expectation level of “perfection”.


But again, you claim to be smarter than everyone else and unbiased, but you’ve got this nonsense monumentally wrong and are now making an arse of yourself because you’re either too stubborn to see your mistake or you’re just being dishonest to try and deflect embarrassment.

Dude lives on page 1 of Google. If that's your definition of smart and informed then sure.

Porn star: "Don, I think I'm pregnant."

Idiot Trump: "Make sure you don't get a pregnancy test."

Porn Star: "... huh?"

Idiot Trump: "If you get a test it might come back positive. As long as you don't tested we're good."

Porn Star:

Idiot Trump: "Thanks! I love that palm too the forehead salute. Everyone does it when I talk. Jared told me it's the salute people give stable geniuses. That facepalm thing you see on the internet is completely FAKE NEWS! George Soros started that lie. SAD!"

Speaking of...the latest meme from the MAGA crowd is that George is paying protestors $1000 a day to protest. Some 75-year-old dimwit from East Tennessee claimed that a protestor in an airport told her that...as usual, it has become fact to the red hats.

I'll protest every day and twice on Sunday for only $500 per day. Give me a call Mr. Soros.

y'all can laugh all you want, there were actual craigslist ads for protesters during the 2016 election cycle that our corrupt and dishonest media ignored

protesters are being paid

$1000 a day? no, I don't believe that for a minute
