Posted on 09/12/2018 8:10:12 AM PDT by chief lee runamok
The Oval Office is in chaos. Donald Trump is mercurial, scatter-brained, given to changing his opinion every few minutes. Talks all the time. Doesnt listen. Is opinionated. Often wrong. He is interested only in today, not tomorrow. He lacks caution. It all adds up to a president who clearly is mentally deficient insane even.

Stupid slow people can think this about smarter and quicker more delusive people.
I guess chaos is what it looks like when he can nimbly dance around all of his obstructionists, keep the media in a chronic, confused frenzy and get more stuff done more quickly than any President in U.S. history.
To the rest of us it looks like progress.
In before people that didn’t read the article.
Posted to save the no-click folks from having a conniption. From the article (it’s pro-Trump):
Donald Trump may be a genius! Dont laugh. He may be the real thing. He jokes about it, which suggests he doesnt realize that he really is (see the Dunning-Kruger effect). His career record certainly suggests he is a major creative talent and a gutsy one at that.
Actually a complimentary article on the prez.
“Whatever the truth, the simple fact is that Donald Trump is, thus far, perhaps the most productive president in American history. Only Teddy Roosevelt is a productive rival, and chaos surrounded him, as well. How can Trumps purported chaotic insanity produce such positive results?”
“Creative people understand chaos. They especially understand it if they have collaborated with other talented people on a difficult problem. Creative chaos is the norm in such an environment. Without that chaos productivity can vanish.”
“Trump faces a problem: the Government. The Government is not, by its nature, a creative institution. When it tries to be it almost invariable gets it wrong. Just consider all the failed social programs if you doubt this.
Government is good at routine. Routine minds are repelled by the kind of turbulence that surrounds Donald Trump. Which, of course, is the reason they have routine minds in routine jobs. Government is process oriented and rule bound. Once a routine is established things tend to go smoothly for a while. Unfortunately routine breaks down in stressing situations. Then, creative thinking is required. But the creativity is usually not there. Creative people just dont fit comfortably in a process oriented organization. “
“In time the mix of the people around the president will have evolved to be a buffer between the productive conventional thinkers and their highly unconventional boss. In engineering terms, Trumps senior staff should serve as an efficient impedance matching device. Given Donald Trumps major talents, and with such a mature staff around the president, we can expect this administration to go down as one historys greatest.”
very much so if posters take 5 minutes to read it...
The government is populated by bureaucrats who have a process oriented mindset. They love rules, conventions and hierarchy. The more laborious and tedious the the process is, and the more layers there are, the more their empires are protected.
Trump is results oriented, not process bound. There was bound to be a clash.
Way back when PDJT was a child, schools actually gave IQ tests. He probably knows his and it is probably very high. He amazes me with all he can get done.
BTW...thanks for posting this article.
Two of the history and social studies teachers came up with a pilot course to teach Government by having members of the class role play actual congressmen and senators then serving, basing selection on surveys of our actual political leanings, and literally go through the process of legislating according to actual congressional rules. My girlfriend ended up being Gerald Ford and I was John Stennis.
One exercise we did before the actual course began was to role play a group of students whose plane has crashed on an island, all the teachers killed but the students survived. How do we organize ourselves to survive? Almost immediately everybody got up and started talking, forming small groups, picking leaders, then organizing with other groups, arguing, debating, but finally by the end of the class we'd formed a workable system. I heard that they tried the same exercise with the class behind us and when they said "OK, go!" no one left their seat and the room stayed dead quiet. They all started writing individual essays on how a government should be organized. The teachers just couldn't believe the contrast.
Reading this article really struck home. Creativity requires a certain amount of chaos. Thinking "outside the box". There's a reason, besides climate and geography, that Washington is called a "swamp". It's a quagmire of dullness and reaction to anything that could upset the gravy train and their phony baloney jobs. Donald Trump is creative chaos, something they simply cannot comprehend or understand, which threatens their world while saving ours.
That’s the second biggest vulture I’ve seen this week.
Preach it, Brother!
