I'm not so sure about that being a universal message. My father never said that to me nor any variation of it. Instead of fear tactics he used positive affirmations and encouraged me to embrace lifes challenges. 

I’m going to bet that your father wasn’t an incompetent leader who bungled a pandemic and caused the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, and that your father didn’t call other people losers in order to try to hide from himself the sad fact that history would regard him as one of the biggest losers of all.

You would win that bet Tim even though I wasn't really commenting on DJT. I was commenting on the validity of KD's "universal" claim.

I too am guessing he is not the son of President Jinping.

Take a couple of Tylenol to try to break that fever

Good call. I wouldn’t want to stand in line with a bunch of Trump supporters either.

Bungled the pandemic by creating Operation Warp Speed and getting vaccines available quicker than anyone believed possible?  Okay sure.  :lmao:

This whole “alpha” thing is always so fascinating to me.  As a trait in leadership it’s common (therefor not special), it’s the easiest to have or exhibit as it requires no real skill or talent and it’s really one that carries more similarities and commonalities to bad leaders/leadership then good ones.  Every bully, dictator, cult leader, gang leader, etc etc we’re/are alpha’s.  It’s simply not special.  

It’s honestly the least admirable trait of a leader as it’s the easiest to acquire.

If it’s so easy to acquire why did Trump struggle so much to do so and never succeeded?

Being an Alpha has nothing to do with success.  It’s easy to act dominantly as a leader but that has nothing to do with the decision making process you are acting upon.  Being an Alpha doesn’t mean your effective.

Guy issues a statement about Georgia purging 100K from its voter rolls. "If they would have done this before the November election we would have won! Rigged election!".

Not one of those 100K voted in the November election. That's in part why they were purged.

Could not make this stuff up if you tried.

Alpha is counterproductive IMHO.

A previous teammate who was voted out last cycle came up to me before a meeting last night and opened me with the line "When are you going to grow a pair and vote ..."

It is astounding me to that some folks believe alpha is how to influence others.

Yet the usual group desperate for a father figure just lap it up.

Will be a talking point regardless and absorbed as fact by team Maga.

Classy.  Calling an entire city 'not good people'.....be better.

From a first time visitor a few months ago, I enjoyed the city including areas adjacent to those that are often seen on the news lately. I will be visiting friends there again next month. It's a wonderful city.

I see the Alpha trait as not being near as prevalent in the business world as it was 20 years ago.  The world has changed to intelligence and empathy over bravado.

To be fair, the housing crisis has tarnished what was just a few years ago a very clean, very safe, very beautiful US City.  It's going to take years to clean up the messes left behind and damage done to the area.  It sucks, but this is a crisis that plagues the entire west coast (and other cities I'm sure, but this one is IN. YOUR. FACE!).  

But the spirits remains high, progress is and will be made (slowly) and for my money, it's the best city in the country to raise a family.  

Oh, and let's get that beer(s) next time you're here.  We'll grab @urbanhack

We see the same types of things in Tampa too, but it’s not quite as polarizing. It’s a scaled issue everywhere imo. I’ll be there 7/30-8/2 and a beer sounds great.

Well, if it's not 230 degrees here like it is today, this new spot a little south of us would be fun to check out:  https://www.topwirehp.com/

It’s from The Daily Beast….

This is all you need to know:

"Two sources told the outlet"

"Sources told the outlet"

The same anonymous BS that the left believed EVERY word of, never questioning.  Any allegation, rumor or tweet was greeted with 100% authenticity by the left.  This article by the Daily Beast continues the fine tradition.  They still reel in the rubes.

It's unbelievable that anyone would say this and not think that they will be mocked.  He is so obtuse.

"It's truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of 'the other side,'" he said.

"Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this? There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia!"

Maybe read the article first.  The source is a direct tweet from Trump.

Trump tweeted in March 2019 that he wanted federal agencies to investigate "SNL."

It's like you made something up out of nothing, twisted it to fit the narrative you wanted to sell and then blamed it on me.

Maybe think next time before you knee-jerk. :doh:

Or, better yet, don't post at all.  Seems like it's a forum win when you don't post.  :thumbup:

Uhm, yeah, I know.  I read the article.  :shrug:

Why is this news again, BTW?  And why quote two "sources" if this was already tweeted by Trump?

I think the unknown sources were saying that Trump actually took it one step further then the tweet, and actually tried to have them investigated.  He was told it wasn't possible.

Do you know who the source is for a lot of these stories about the inner workings of the Trump camp?  Tucker Carlson.  100% true.  Because things just couldn't be more insane.
