Re: How could a "moron" win the Presidency of the United States?
Trump is not a moron. He is however a reckless individual who has no qualms about rushing headlong into the fray. The way he spends his companies' moneys erratically, hedges his fortunes on stupidly risky ventures, and then expects the banks to bail him out....that kind of crap is what scares me about him.
Frankly, I don't think Trump is any more devious or immoral or aggressive than any other head of industry. I've done constructions projects for billionaires in Arizona, California and Texas, and they are all, to a man, aggressive, competitive and arrogant. They have to be. To exert that kind of control over big corporations you have to be slicker and stronger than your competitors.
Right now I'm building two restaurants for the owner of the Houston Astros, and while I do like him, he has a ruthlessness that scares me sometimes. And he's what?...one out of a hundred or so billionaires here in Houston?
One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
