On Monday, Trump doubled down on his comments telling Fox News “I’ve been right about a lot of things, frankly. … I was right about many, many things.”
No he hasn’t. He has been wrong about everything.
From thinking that the US government can pick up his bill, when he went bankrupt in his entrepreneurial adventures, to thinking that Obama is un American.
Of course, the US government did pick up the bill when he went bankrupt in some of his capitalistic deals (and you Mr. Trump and the other corporate welfare clients are also welcome), but I think Obama has time and again proved himself an American.
The problem is, for Trump, Obama has been hiding behind some kind of camouflage.
What that camouflage structure is, I can only guess.
Donald Trump’s Twitter war for the White House continued Saturday with an attack on Mitt Romney and perhaps one of the boldest declarations of his presidential campaign thus far.
From the above photo, it looks like the “Red Hats” have gone camouflage. I am not sure what that means. Camouflage is used to make structures, human or human technology, blend into the environment. So my guess is that Trump doesn’t see race (or is racist) as long as its structure is hidden (camouflaged) from view.
So Trump probably doesn’t see the Mexican help he hires at his hotels, as long as they stay camouflage in their workspace. If they come out of their workspace and, let’s say, sit on a court bench, then I guess the camouflage is off, and they become Mexican.
I think the Republican nominating convention is about to get a lot more interesting, as the Red Hats come off and the camouflage goes on.
It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin’ cotton and my brother was balin’ hay
Nothing captures the mood of a place — the heat that penetrates, the dust, the humidity — like the Ode to Billie Joe:
Although Ms. Gentry was born in nearby Chickasaw County, the song has long been associated with Greenwood, where the Tallahatchie and Yalobusha come together to form the Yazoo. It’s where she started school and learned to play a variety of musical instruments. As an aside, “Greenwood” doesn’t appear in the lyrics — the only actual places mentioned are Tupelo and the “Carroll County picture show,” neither of which are in the Delta.
To get to the point, Greenwood is also where my wife, Ginger, was born. So the song has always had a lot of significance to us.
Strategy, then, is simply finding the big a-ha and setting a broad direction, putting the right people behind it, and then executing with an unyielding emphasis on continuous improvement. There’s no mystery to it!
Jack Welch is being kind to suggest that there is no mystery to strategy. But in a way he is right. There is no mystery in how to execute strategy–the mystery is in the strategy itself.
The mystery can be defined in questions asked by every strategist: what is the strategist vision that the person such as Jack Welch sees, what is the means the visionary has available to get to strategic end imagined, and what is the way forward from the end (from where everyone started at) to the end (where the visionary was working towards)?
So Strategy is easy, but still a mystery–finding the strategist is hard.
But unlocking the mystery makes the strategy a winning or losing process, and Jack Welch is a winner and a successful strategist.
Successful strategists (Jack Welch) are those people who are able to unlock the mystery for us all and they should be rewarded for the mystery unlocked.
From Max, one of the commentators: “They are fighting PKK (Kurdish ISIL).”
I am not sure I understand. I mean I believe all Kurds want to set up an Islamic state, but they want it to be a Kurdish state. Also I don’t understand why bother to call one ISIL and the other ISIS, as if linking them and separating both ISIL and ISIS into something completely different.
I too believe that Turkey is under appreciated by the West, but Max’s comments seem strange to me in its alignment. The difference between a Kurdish ISIL and ISIS is not in area. Both want to be in the same general area (the Levant). The difference is in how to align family boarders within the location of the area they want to control.
The Kurdish families (which include both Sunni and Shia) want to set up a Islamic state whose borders align with Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria, the places where they live–ISIS wants to set up an Islamic State where everyone else in the region lives, but without boarders. But then ISIL has declared much the same intentions as ISIL has, in forming a Caliphate. In fact some people might say that ISIL and ISIS are one and the same.
That point would be hard to argue.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department and Pentagon ordered the families of U.S. diplomats and military personnel Tuesday to leave posts in southern Turkey due to “increased threats from terrorist groups” in the country.
The only thing I am sure about is that neither Turkey nor ISIS will ever join a so-called “Kurdish ISIL”, but there may be a little ISIL in all of them, and leftover from the good-old-days of the Turkish Caliphate of the Ottoman Empire.
