Re: Will Trump be a Good President?


I guess this is typical for how Trump regards himself - grand, luminous, beautiful, compared to the other presidents. The other ones are somehow pale figures that only preceded the light that was to come....I think it's funny, although not a totally bad painting - artistically. I'm sure it's enormous in size too.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Fact: Warren listed herself as a minority teacher at both UPENN and Harvard. Why exactly? Answer that Marton as I am curious... She was caucasian and she changed ethnicity ..WHY? If it did not suit her?? Of course she benefited! Maybe it would not suit one living in the UK but believe me, it does in the US...

Because she only claimed her "supposed" ethnic background some years after her employment by both UPenn and Harvard

Maybe the review committees had a time machine to look at her future claims?
Quote:
US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren ... was listed as a minority professor in American law school directories for nine years before she landed at Harvard, documents show.

The Association of American Law Schools desk book, a directory of law professors from participating schools, includes Warren among the minority law professors listed, beginning in 1986 and continuing through 1995. The years include time she spent teaching at the University of Texas and the University of Pennsylvania, before she joined the faculty at Harvard Law.

For the record, the Boston Globe got the math wrong...So why would I believe their statement regarding the other references that Warren received her law school employments but they just happened overlooked her ethnicity. How naive are you exactly??
The math is not relevant, the Cherokee have no minimum blood (quantum) requirement.

You might be onto something here.....but I can't understand the feeling though. As if white (as in of Anglo-Saxon and German apparently... heritage), heterosexual, rich American males are "on the outside" or something. Any explanation for that? (from our armchair psychologists wisdom.. )

This has been discussed at great length by psychiatrists and psychologists.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

... and finally, from as close to the horse's mouth as we're ever going to get, an article from the Harvard Crimson magazine from 1996:

Quote:
Of 71 current Law School professors and assistant professors, 11 are women, five are black, one is Native American and one is Hispanic, said Mike Chmura, spokesperson for the Law School.

Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.
Now, where on earth could Mr Chmura have possibly got that idea?

Well, you can't get much more minority than the "one percent", can you?

Sorry STIRB, but how exactly do you know that her "supposed" ethnic background was not a consideration in her employment by both UPenn and Harvard? Were you on the hiring committee at both schools?
You literally debunked your entire argument in your previous post. If you cannot deduce that from what you wrote, I think there's a box you need to check on your next job application that will give you a special leg up, too.

One of many similar articles
Quote:
Trump Doesn't Want to Take Down the Elite. He Wants Their Acceptance.

Trump may exploit hatred of the elite for political advantage, but he is desperate for them to like him and welcome him into their ranks.
Source

Basically the theory is that Trump keeps people at arms length because of his fear of rejection.
Which is the driver for his one to one meetings with world leaders.

He also keeps ex US Presidents at arms length whereas predecessors were more collegiate.

No. Trump compared the Kashoggi case with the Kavanaugh case. How dumb is this guy.

I wonder from where you got "Mexico/Peru/Colombia"?

Relevant part of the actual DNA test result

Attachment 134696


Quote:
For Native American references, we used samples within the 1000 Genomes project of Native American ancestry; these samples come from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia. (It is not possible to use Native American reference sequences from inside the United States, since Native American groups within the US have not chosen to participate in recent population genetics studies.)



Did you even read the test report? or just the parts that satisfy your self-affirmation.


Advice #1: Read.
Advice #2 (if reading is hard): Open the document and press Ctrl and 'F' simultaneously, then let go. This will open a search window and you can find whatever you need to know.

I suspect we will never know, everytime you think the bar is at the bottom he manages to lower it. For me the worrisome question is 'how dumb are his supporters?' so far there seems to be nothing they won't swallow.


The president of the US is now speaking up in defence of the perpetrators of the murder and dismemberment of a journalist I wish it was a foregone conclusion that his supporters wouldnt fall for this 'rogue agents' BS.

I would have thought all you clever chaps would have learnt from Brexit that calling voters stupid doesn't result in much success in encouraging them to see your point of view.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

why the sideshow over Warrens dna results? the story is Spanky made a bet and didn't just welch on it, but denied ever making it


"I didn't say that," Trump told a reporter. "No, you'd better read it again."


please, just the tiniest bit of character, show just a sliver of backbone.
