Is there anything left to say about the unsuitability of Donald Trump as a presidential candidate? Even senior figures of his own party have disowned him. The latest revelations about his sordid attitude and behaviour towards women only confirm what was obvious to many from the very beginning: Trump is a demagogue not fit for high office, or for the responsibilities that come with it.

There are many people who disagree vehemently with your views that will never say a word in public. You don't win arguments because you are right, you win them due to fear.

I'm not one of those people.

Nah. If anything its the opposite when politics comes up in public. Usually its me verse three or four trump supporters who have no issue expressing their views.

Also the whole SJW stuff never really comes up. Us old non college educated folk dont really go there much.

Liberals are cheap.

Um....but seriously, an MIT grad not picking up the tab and not capable of thinking for himself. Ruh-roh. Maybe we're worse off than we thought.

Why are there editorials in science journals? I don't care about STEM's opinions, I care if they can build bridges or rockets or whatever. I'm sure there are a lot of nutty ideas from STEM folks. Steve Jobs had weird ideas too...

Do you not think measuring the US education system based on the top universities that 0.1% will actually go to, is a bit flawed?

The best part of this is that you seem to have no idea how pathetic you look when you have to invent people to win imaginary arguments against because every page from your beta cuckbook gets destroyed on this forum.

Then I have to wonder why you floated out the idea that STEM guys are all Trumpers in the first place.

So you'd rather we have whole bunch of average universities with much less of the top ones?

Think about what you are suggesting. No, I don't agree. We do cutting edge things here exactly due to the draw. It's not a magical force that brings the best minds across the planet here. It's the environment and the resources and the institutions. I couldn't disagree with you more.

Re: President Trump

I'm an extreme right wing fascist now? Maybe I should turn off the food Network and stop playing with the baby and put on my Nazi uniform and goose step around the living room.

Right after she's done making these macaroons.

Wil, by your definition the world is full of leftist that misshape the data. The STEM field is full of leftist, my guesstimate would be somewhere around 80-90 % of all European STEM majors are under your definition, don't know much about the US field. I don't think you should trust the code this website or forum is running on; it is most likely written by a leftist.

That pay gap between genders has been debunked multiple times in different countries my multiple research. How is that even leftist and how does that article support anything you claim?

To be clear, your position is that universal healthcare and good public education are bad things?

This is wrong.

America operates based on the average views of its people, sure, it's just that the average is a weighted one. Weighted by wealth.

Wouldn't we then be paid more by the companies since they don't have to shell out that money for benefits?

I guess I just don't understand why everyone is so against everyone having healthcare available to their fellow citizens.
It's mostly because of stupidity.

It's no where are easy as you make it out to be. And to be honest I don't think we will ever have single payer in this country. The costs come from somewhere. Someone has to pay, and there's enough people who don't want it to be burdened by everyone.

That's just the reality. Again, I don't see why you people can't see this. The political will is not there. If it was, it would be a done deal already. We know how the ACA passed - Obama said it himself that's the best they could get.

We will not have single payer in the foreseeable future. Period.
Lol the backtrack.

You gotta look at who calls everyone but themselves leftist. That's the far right where fascism dwells.
