Once again I encounter that "All American" anti-intellectualism that starts w/the fact I actually use my PhD as a title instead of pretending I don't have that credential at all, assuming that a PhD means nothing. You wouldn't find that attitude in Europe

--at least, nowhere near as predominate as it is in the USA.

Some time ago I developed a policy of refusing to respond to willfully ignorant #MAGAts who won't read any information I provide when I DOCUMENT my POV w/links. It rarely happens w/true #resisters▶️
...but it happened just now

[she provided no resources of her own--I would have read them if she had, at least if she provided me w/same courtesy]

What she sees as "overbearing" is my insistence that I won't waste time w/people who don't at least▶️

The only thing keeping us from a full blown #TrumpRecession is your consumption. The consumer is strong while all else fails. If you limit your spending until #Election2020 you're helping to get #Trump out of office. RETWEET

Tariffs have increased prices on large appliances and other big purchases. It's in your best (#resister) interest to hold off on any big purchase until after the election. You'll ensure Trump can't boast about the economy, and you'll save money after #Dems are back in power.
You may think interest rates are low, so it's a good time to spend, however as the #TrumpRecession gathers steam the fed will need to lower rates. New #Dem prez will reduce tariffs. That will increase your buying power in 2021 and help @thedemocrats economy flourish.

1/ A project: to stop using country names as culprits. I will elaborate on this.

Today, it's mostly accepted among folks on the "democratic side of the picture" (I'll get back to nomenclature later) to use "Russia" or "the Russians" as a synonym for
2/ "agents from the Russian government" or "political agents from Russia". Let me start with something shocking: we, the folks on the only right side of the picture in Latin America during the 1960s and 1970s referred to "the Americans" or "the USA" as the "great historical evil"
3/ Why? Because the American government, after WWII, actually financed the local political agents that DESTROYED our countries. The American government was the headquarters of the global RIGHT WING.

Someone asked "Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?"

Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England, wrote this magnificent response:
"A few things spring to mind.

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.
For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility,
no honour and no grace - all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable,

Late last week, I received a message from I can only hope was from am MAGA umm.. idiot. He wanted to know why I,a Canadian was getting involved in something that wasn't any of my business- meaning becoming a part of the #Resistance . I had no right to offer my 2 cents in US ...
politics. That your 'commander in brief' was the best thing happen to the country in generations.
Of course in true cowardly fashion- he blocked me so I couldn't respond to him directly. So please- be patient #Resisters while I babble this is going to take a couple minutes-
Yes, I am a PROUD Canadian- for that I'm not going to apologize. I live about half way between Buffalo NY and Toronto. Like almost 90% of the Canadian population- I live within 250 miles of the US Border. I have friends in relatives living the US- and enjoy visiting them.

1 / @RubyFishbone , Hi Ruby, this is the "overly polite" #resister on Trump's threads. This is electoral strategy: we have until the 6th to close some gaps. Analyzing the polls, we conclude that this can only be accomplished by penetrating and opening a line of conversation => 2
2 / with social segments that have remained out of our reach up to now. Two examples for TX: "white"+"woman+"Christian". I'm trying everything, even inserting very polite comments on mega-church accounts. Why "very polite"? =>
3 / Quantitative public opinion studies show that one of the chief drivers for undecided people to shift to conservatism is fear. If we use hostile language on their threads, we push them away, instead of pulling them to our side. There is no time left to try anything new.
