How do you know their IQ? I don’t believe you - do you know the proportion of IQs over 160 in the US?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I found one of Tom's high IQ Trumpers.

Video

Story:
Quote:
PARKER, Colo. — A Parker mother has been arrested and is accused of plotting to kidnap her child — who had been removed from her custody — in a "raid" with help from a far-right conspiracy theory group, according to an arrest warrant from the Parker Police Department (PPD).

Cynthia Abcug, 50, was arrested in Montana on Dec. 30 on a charge of conspiracy to commit second-degree kidnapping, a spokesperson for the PPD said.

The warrant for Abcug was issued in September after a caseworker alerted authorities that Abcug's daughter, who was living with her in Parker, reported that her mom had "lots of weapons in her home" and an "armed man was living there," the warrant says.

The daughter also reported that the man had a "plan to kidnap Abcug's other child," who had been removed from her custody, according to the warrant.

Abcug's daughter said her mother "had gotten into some conspiracy theories" and was "spiraling down," the warrant says.

She also said that Abcug was "planning a raid" where they "intended to kidnap" her other child, according to the warrant.

Abcug's daughter believed the raid would be carried out by members of the QAnon group. According to the warrant, QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory detailing a supposed secret plot by an alleged deep state against President Donald Trump and his supporters.

These are actually not relevant. The intention of democracy is to give power to the powerless.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Is America now a better place to live, or a worse place to live, for Americans, after 4 years of Trump?


Has he made any progress for the population? Is there more employment? etc etc

You need to define what you mean by "Americans" like white/black, rich/poor, young/old, Christian/other religion.....

One in almost 42,000 people has an iq greater than 160. The chance of you knowing “several” is nonsense. Forget that though, you can have an off the charts iq - but if you don’t have reasoning skills, etc, it matters not at all.

The admittedly biased sample that I consult says no.

It doesn'tmean they function well in the society, though.

Talking of IQ is a bit like talking of shoe sizes.

Economically:
Economic growth has been steady since 2010. Tax cuts didn't stimulate the economy in any appreciable way, except in stock prices (via buy backs). But, are estimated to add ~ $2 trillion to the debt - the budget deficit grew by 50% under Trump and the vast majority of the tax cut benefits went to the wealthiest Americans.

American consumers, not china, are paying for the import tariffs (a study estimated $3.2 Billion a month). And we've further socialized farming with Trump's $28 Billion political bribes supporting mostly the large Ag companies.

So, if your priority is bankrupting the US to benefit billionaires, we're doing great. Otherwise, Trump's agenda has been terrible.

Morally:
The US government is pardoning and celebrating war criminals (literally someone who proudly killed innocent women and children). Approximately 5,500 migrant children were separated from their families, and put in cages for months on end. A version of Trump's Muslim ban is law in the US - disturbing for any non-bigoted American. Our president has consistently blocked sanctions on Saudia Arabia, which chopped up US resident & WaPo writer Khashoggi with a hacksaw while still alive and is enabling the starvation crisis of 20 million Yemenis. Trump turned his back on some of our most loyal and longest allies against ISIS - the Kurds - when they faced genocide and his business partner Erdogan wanted a favor.

Corruption:
The President pays himself with US tax payer money - every weekend at a Trump hotel or golf trip! It amounts to at least of 10s of millions of dollars. Trump obstructed justice on multiple occasions. He very clearly abused his powers by withholding congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine, to get them to announce an investigation into a political rival.

I could do this all day. His presidency is littered with political, moral, and economic failings. He's making a mockery of our country.

His only redeeming quality is he's highlighted who among us find these things acceptable. So we can see them too for who they are.
