He spends a lot of time bragging about his intelligence. He has in the past said he knew more than his advisers, his generals, pretty much everyone around. A truly intelligent person does not need to brag about their intelligence. Trump attacks everyone who dares suggest he might not be that smart . He is so defensive it tells me he is not that intelligent. He may be crafty, he may be devious and he is at least of mid-level intelligent, but really intelligent, I doubt it.
He likes to say he graduated top of his class but the graduation announcements from Wharton shows he did not graduate top of the class or with honors. So he spends a lot of time lying about or exaggerating his intelligence. I will match my wits against his anytime. I graduated from one of the top Liberal Arts/Engineering colleges in the country, The Virginia Military Institute class of 1981. I was not top of my class, matter of fact I expect I was near the bottom, but I did graduate. I then earned a Master's Degree in Education from a very good school, UNCC. Currently I am one math class shy of finishing a 2nd Master's Degree in Psychology. If I can find the money, I hope to go after a Doctoral Degree.
I don't spend time bragging about my education or intelligence, I also don't spend time inventing new words and threatening people that I feel threatened by--oh wait, I don't feel like anyone threatens me except my sons lol. Not only did I graduate from a more prestigious college I never got anywhere because my daddy started me off with several million in my pocket. I never slept around on my wife and was only married once. When people pick on me because of my name which is pronounced "blow" I laugh back and usually crack a few jokes myself.
I have had 8th graders I have taught that spoke better and more coherently than Trump usually does. I have taught college students who are more intelligent.
Now if someone is Christian I say Merry Christmas, Pagans get Happy Yule, and so on. Remember the Puritans who originally settled this country did not celebrate Christmas. They did not celebrate anything, nor did they sing or dance because they were all sins. So tell me how it is an attack on Christians? Christians love to attack everyone else. I have lost several jobs I was very good at and had excellent reports. The last one looked me right in the eye and told me it was because I was being fired because I was not Christian even though I did not talk about my religion in class or to students or to teachers. The guidance office had me talk to some of the students that needed help that were from Pagan families but I was fired for being other than Christian.
So who is attacking who?
Do boys get to join Girl Scouts? If so then just do away with the "Boy" "Girl" parts and call it scouting. I can see parents all gung-ho for mixed sex weekend camping trips or the Jamborees that last a week. Ought to be fun.
Why does everything have to be all inclusive? Putting a bunch of teens of both sexes out in the woods together for a few nights of camping away from the parents-sounds great, now they can start getting merit badges for
1) Birth Control
2) Safe Sex
3) Sexual Etiquette
I was an Eagle Scout, God & Country, OA, spent a total of 28 years in Scouts including some as assist. district commissioner and recharter commissioner in the Gemstone District. Let boys have something that is just for them and Girls something that is just for them. However if girls are now allowed in the Boy Scouts, then I demand the Girl Scouts open ranks to the boys. And be prepared for sex in the woods. By allowing the sexes to mix like this, you are inviting it.
H brought sex into the light. People started talking about it openly. I think helped get things like rape, STD's and other subjects out in the open as well instead of something only whispered about behind closed doors and nothing being done, research started being funded and people started getting treated. Instead of sex being something dirty and laughed about in bars it became something a topic that could be discussed openly and honestly.
