Trump’s Razor

October 10, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

You’ve heard of Occam’s Razor, yes?  The principle is based on a theory from Franciscan friar William of Ockham, who lived in 14th Century England.  His principle is quoted as, “Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily.”  Translated into modern language, the theory was restated to, “…when you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”  The principle has been applied to theory for  centuries.

Welp, there’s now a theory that has been postulated, first popularized by Josh Marshall of TPM during the 2016 election.  The theory is dubbed Trump’s Razor.  The principle is this – “ascertain the stupidest possible scenario that can be reconciled with the available facts”; in other words, when Trump or his brood do or say something, the stupidest scenario that explains the statement is the true one.

Case in point (among dozens):  “…calm before the storm.”  Trump couldn’t resist shooting off his mouth during a dinner with military personnel.  He stupidly blurted out the “calm before the storm” comment, and then doubled, tripled, and quadrupled down.  Utilizing Trump’s razor, the statement was simply stupid, and he couldn’t bring himself (as usual) to back away from it.

The fact is, Rex Tillerson is correct – Trump is a fucking moron.  (Sorry, Momma) He simply has no self control; no sense of decency, no empathy.  If he thinks something, no matter how idiotic, he just blurts it out.  When cornered, and pressured to explain himself, he doubles down and says something even more stupid.

Trump’s razor is true –  a reliable tool to analyze Trump’s proclamations.  Whenever he says something, especially when it gets national attention, Trump’s razor is a correct predictor.  He’s just simply stupid and shallow.  He’s not in a 3 dimensional chess game – he’s just hoping to get two scoops of ice cream for dessert.

 

Lord Help Us All!

Okay, so I realize that we need to update our computer technology in government. That’s important now that we know how vulnerable we truly are.

And I think it’s nice that a committee has been formed of 14 members of congress to work on this issue, even though members of congress are probably the least informed people about technology on the whole damn earth.

Their goal?

Their wish lists vary: Some aim to change how agencies deliver services to citizens, others want agencies to be able to purchase bleeding-edge ideas, and few have ideas on how to restructure offices and expand agency missions. And they’re all concerned with government’s cybersecurity stance.

Okay, so maybe if we got some of the smartest ones together … oh hell no.

 

No. Just no.

Here is living proof that he cannot get his ducks in a row.

Thanks to Lydia for the heads up.

img_0383Former Governor for Life and seriously devoted dumbass, Rick Perry, has been named by Cheeto Jesus as Energy Secretary. That’s right, sports fans, Rootin’ Tootin Rick has your energy future in his hands.  We’ve clearly fallen down the Rabbit Hole to Teabaggin’ Screwball Hell. If it wasn’t true, it would be a great fantasy novel.

Jesus save us.
