I'm still amazed anyone still thinks this asshole is fit to remain in office. Fox Fucking News? Somehow a meat cleaver needs to be put between that corrupt network and those corrupt politicians.

Typical mob boss behavior seen again and again from this administration.

Kennedy, who has experience working at investment and consulting firms and was planning to take the LSATs, said he declined the assignment, explaining he knew nothing about disease modeling.
Why the hell would a 26 year old even be asked to serve on this task force? Is he friends with Kushner?

There you go with the thinking that education and training are required to be successful in certain roles. That is just so elitist. As long as you can make decisions based on your feels that’s all you need. One opinion is just as valid as every other opinion (something that has been argued in more than one occasion by conservatives in P&N).

What you are describing is the nature of fear. Fear is the mind killer. It overrides reason and logic and replaces is with fight or flight panic, an intense hormonal response designed to enhance the chances of survival. This is the life of animals, not of people in the process of thinking and reasoning. The conservative brain in the throws of panic and fear, told, say that the if you stop to reason they might die, will regard any call to rational thinking a death sentence. Picture reasoning with wildebeests in full stampede. Long ago the first Republican leaders learned to herd them right off cliffs. It isn't easy at all to bring conservatives to reason. They need long long long walks in very safe and orderly parks, the kind of places only progressive Democrats know how to build and only those among them who are lovers will share. A god who walked the earth not so long ago said: "Relax and be happy.!"

Everything is perfect just as God commanded and always has been. The devil came into being only with the invention of language and abstract thinking. It is thought that is fear. Let go of it

You're right. Feels beats science and intelligence any day. "Art of the Deal" trumps everything.
