Interesting...

Cipolla’s five basic laws of human stupidity

Law 1: Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.

Law 2: The probability that a certain person be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.

Law 3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.

When confronted with a stupid individual you are completely at his mercy..

Law 4: Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.

Law 5: A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.
And its corollary:
A stupid person is more dangerous than a bandit.

https://qz.com/967554/the-five-universal-laws-of-human-stupidity/

There are no defenses against stupidity, argued the Italian-born professor, who died in 2000. The only way a society can avoid being crushed by the burden of its idiots is if the non-stupid work even harder to offset the losses of their stupid brethren.

So, I guess I won't stop soon posting those anti-Trump posts !!! It's almost a duty !

They try very hard, using journalistic skills/lies. He makes up a fictional file on Hunter Biden:

https://townhall.com/columnists/patbuch ... t-n2559651

Of course there is a file on Hunter Biden, but only the contract for his services, which were to sit at board meetings a few times a year. The board votes on Burisma matters which at this time are internal and do not need to be revealed. But board members do not devise technical things or criminal efforts. They look at finances, annual reports and such. Business! In any case, the president of Ukraine cannot get info on a board member of a company in his country.

Not sure how senators could bring up Burisma, since there is nothing on it in the papers the house dumped on the senate. The crime was Trump's phone call.

"Now Tero, you realize this is not the place for serious discussion?"

Yes I do. But nevertheless, there is new cool stuff in the Wiki article

Wow, more cool stuff appeared!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump%E2% ... ne_scandal
Jump to Giuliani

Quote:
Responding to a motion by the liberal watchdog group American Oversight,[96] on October 23 a federal judge gave the State Department 30 days to release Ukraine-related records, including communications between Pompeo and Rudy Giuliani.[97] On November 22, the State Department released internal emails and documents that bolstered Gordon Sondland's congressional testimony that Pompeo participated in Giuliani's activities relating to Ukraine. The documents also showed the State Department had deliberately deceived Congress about the rationale for Yovanovitch's removal as ambassador.[96]

During his call with Zelensky, Trump said, "I will ask [Giuliani] to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what's happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great."[98] In November, Trump denied directing Giuliani to go to Ukraine to seek damaging information on the Bidens.[99] Giuliani had asserted in September that "everything I did was to defend my client."[100]

Quote:
Naftogaz

Perry with Zelensky at Zelensky's inauguration, May 2019
Since March 2019, while Giuliani was pressing the Ukrainian administration to investigate the Bidens, a group of businessmen and Republican donors used their ties to Trump and Giuliani to try to replace the leadership of Ukrainian state-owned oil and gas company Naftogaz. The group sought to have Naftogaz contracts granted to businesses owned by allies of Trump, but this effort hit a setback when Volodymyr Zelensky won the 2019 Ukrainian Presidential Election.[101] During a state visit for President Zelensky's inauguration in May, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry reportedly pressured President Zelensky to fire members of the Naftogaz supervisory board,[101] but Perry denied this, stating in a press conference on October 7: "That was a totally dreamed-up story".[102] On October 10, Perry was issued a subpoena by the House Intelligence Committee, the House Oversight Committee, and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, partially concerning his interactions with Naftogaz.[103][104][105]


Quote:
Firtash is represented by Trump and Giuliani associates Joseph diGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing, having hired them on Parnas's recommendation. The New York Times reported in November that Giuliani had directed Parnas to approach Firtash with the recommendation, with the proposition that Firtash could help to provide compromising information on Biden, which Parnas's attorney described was "part of any potential resolution to [Firtash's] extradition matter."[112] Shokin's statement notes that it was prepared "at the request of lawyers acting for Dmitry Firtash."[113][109] Bloomberg News reported on October 18 that during the summer of 2019 Firtash associates began attempting to dig up dirt on the Bidens in an effort to solicit Giuliani's assistance with Firtash's legal matters, as well as hiring diGenova and Toensing in July. Bloomberg News also reported that its sources told them Giuliani's high-profile publicity of the Shokin statement had greatly reduced the chances of the Justice Department dropping the charges against Firtash, as it would appear to be a political quid pro quo.[114]

Firtash made his fortune brokering Ukrainian imports of natural gas from the Russian firm Gazprom.[120] As vice president, Joe Biden had urged the Ukrainian government to eliminate middlemen such as Firtash from the country's natural gas industry, and to reduce the country's reliance on imports of Russian natural gas. Firtash denied involvement in collecting or financing damaging information on the Bidens.[112]

I read it and it's disgusting.
Of course, Trump won't be impeached and we all know why.
Those Trump ass lickers don't want us to see the truth. I doubt they want or can see it themselves anymore.
The last hope is the way Americans will react in the next election.

Arkay,

Do you seriously think your bold texted opinionated responses to the FACTUAL information I've presented somehow diminishes that FACTUAL information or proves it to be incorrect?! Seriously?! Because, if that's the case, then you've just TKO'd Tweedle-Dumb-Diane-Bean-Counter and have now won the revered title of, #1 Z Forum Moron.


And btw, there are PLENTY of great jobs that have been created by the Trump Adminstration since late 2016.
