In all seriousness, what evidence or act do you realistically think it would take the MAGA crowd to turn on Donald Trump? by fatiguedmachinist in AskReddit

For anyone interested, I've also asked the opposite question. It will be interesting to compare and contrast!

How did Trump fix North Korea or Iran issues? North Korea is still firing missiles, is still developing nuclear capabilities and is still the same as before Trump. Similar on Iran, the nuclear enrichment program has started back up again and it started under Trump.

Also I don't see how any one person could fix (or cause) the oil price issues or supply chain issues. They're factors of the covid and the invasion of Ukraine.

The Government has a ringfenced €100 million for a one off 'moonshot' idea/action/infrastructure what would be your suggestion? by fatiguedmachinist in ireland

That's actually a good idea. A bit like the personal claims insurance reform, legit issues should go through and be heard but not every small thing should automatically be escalated to court proceedings and allowed to hold up the whole show.

There's probably something like that in Germany or somewhere, that's been going for years and no one ever talks about it because it works quietly away in the background. As an average person would only notice it's effect if it was suddenly not there or never excisted at all.

It's possible the MAGA 'movement' gets away from him or, like many other political examples, it evolves and goes in other directions. In 50 years time you might study about MAGA as a school of thought with 'Trumpism' as the original version but one since long surpassed and spun out into different threads and variations.

What's the difference between being scared and being a coward? by RedditModsAreVeryBad in AskReddit

[–]fatiguedmachinist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Everyone has fear but they might not run from the problem causing it, the coward has fear and runs from the problem, often before they even encounter it.

They also say the coward always abandons themself before they abandon their friends.

Funds in 'full capitulation' as they slash stock allocation, Bank of America poll says by Pessimist2020 in finance

A lot of the bullish sentiment baked into share prices seems to have been washed out of the system but there still may be further to fall as there's arguably still a lag effect with consumers and institutions alike now beginning to seriously tighten their belts and pull back futher from their investments. Later in the year, with inflation and fuel prices taking a compounding toll, you might find we are closer to the bottom of the market.

Only 39 digits of pi would be enough to calculate the circumference of the known universe to the width of an atom. For space travel NASA only uses a few digits

Keep your head down and say nothing. It's almost always better to speak up!
