No, but I'm sure you can fight to have the Fed mandate that I buy it from you.

You don't fire a guy you hired last week.
It makes you look like a dufus that you didn't do your do diligence in hiring the dufus in the first place.
These are not easy positions where you dig ditches with a shovel all day.
So you must be certain of whom you put in these positions.

Anyone who can't see that the constant chaos and instability are negatively impacting the administration is hard to take seriously, in my opinion.

Anyone who can't see that it hasn't effected the GNP climbing to a number not seen in decades, durable goods orders at record numbers, jobs climbing , and consumer confidence index numbers beyond any estimate, not to mention the stock market, despite every effort of the media to make it appear to be relavent is beyond logical discussion .

Well apparently you DO, and DID. I fail to see why anyone would find that hard to understand. If you hire a guy that does not do what you want him to do, you don't wait until he makes you regret it. You fire him.
And you are correct. You DO make certain he's the right guy. If he isn't, you fire him and find the right guy. Just like trump just did.

SEE....even though he won't answer my question, this is how I know professionally speaking, he is in charge of less than an m fart. I have fired several people I recently hired. As an employer, one has to be prepared to hire slowly and fire quickly. The length of employment doesn't matter. I fired a guy three days after hiring him. He decided to take a week-long, unscheduled trip to Utah...adios sucka. I'm not in Trump's inner circle but he has every Right to make these decisions whether they appear Presidential or not. I have my policy disagreements with Trump but this is his deal and i'm okay with it.

Sadly, you aren't guy the only guy I know who proclaims his opinions to be irrefutable facts.

Trump's job approval rating is even underwater in Texas, 42 - 51. That's how absurd the Trump reality show has become.

Trump's right wing base may have decided the ends justify the means, but they don't have the numbers to sustain their uprising given the rate at which independents have jumped ship. Meanwhile, Trumpists can't seem to get enough of the continuous calamity and foot-in-mouth statements from the President. Unfortunately, it's possible they can't help it. Peer-reviewed psychological research helps explain why this is.

This guy absolutely CANNOT grasp that I did not vote for Trump. Just can't get it. I should take off this 'I'm A Trump Apologist' t-shirt. I get myself in more predicaments wearing this thing.

Whether you voted for Trump or not is irrelevant at this point. I voted for Trump in the primary and general, although now I obviously wish I hadn't.

Do you see how this works now? Probably not...

Three clicks exposes this about the author of your linked article:

Bobby Azarian is a cognitive neuroscientist at George Mason University. His work has been published in journals like Cognition & Emotion and Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, and he has written for sites like Slate, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and Scientific American. He also runs the website Science Is Sexy. Follow him @BobbyAzarian.

One more click, comments from the author:

"It is wrong to assume that I am an extreme liberal because I'm critical of Trump and point out conservatives' hypersensitivities and negativity biases. I have been critical of the left in other articles. As a scientist, I'm naturally a progressive, but unfortunately some progressives have become regressive due to failing to stay within the "common sense zone." However, there is no doubt that overall, with a huge emphasis on the word "overall", the left values rational thought and logic more than the right, as the the (new) right is fundamentally opposed to science and evidence, in many regards."

Your source is so biased, he doesn't even recognize that his own viewpoint clouds his objectivity rendering his conclusions to be no more valid than DNC talking points. He clearly chastises those on the left who aren't as far left as he is.

Fake news, bud. Author's credibility is zero.

Ok
It's obvious the guy you hired valued a vacation in Utah mute than what you were going to pay him so he went to Utah.
I hire no one with less than a master's degree and 10 years experience and they all are over 100k salary.

The people I hire are consummate professionals

Besides, they are on a 90 day probation period which means no vacay the first 90 days no questions asked (although I do ask them if they have any vacation plans before they accept the offer)

I've never had to fire anyone in under 90 days.
I just don't have those kind of people apply to the positions I hire for.

Maybe it's the industry you're in???

Lastly, my staff usually works from home 40 to 80% off the time and some of them spend two months a year working from their homes in India.

But you just don't get it.
It's not "presidential" to quickly hire a guy then fire him 10 days later. It appears as tho you are making impetuous decisions.
Either the hiring was impetuous, the firing or both.
Just acknowledge that.
You are also forgetting that Mooch and trump are friends and run in the same circle so this isn't like the guy you picked up in home depot parking lot that decided to go to Utah a week after you hired him.

If I ever hired one of my friends they'd know to "not make me look bad" so they wouldn't give crazy interviews their first week on the job.

#1 - You only hire consummate professionals.
#2 - Those people, dont apply to work for you anyways?

After all this time, I FINALLY understand what forms your ideology. Do you realize how out-of-touch, arrogant and condescending you are?? Holy crap. So, you don't have to burden yourself with the likes of janitor scum and the maintenance crew and are only taxed with managing a small room of bean counters does not make your point. Quite the opposite. You act like we are all idiots and cannot follow a directive until someone like you points. You're not the only one with a Masters degree, homie. Down here in the projeks, some of us live in the REAL WORLD bro. We deal with all of it; from the top to the bottom and everything in between. The guy that ducked out to Utah, did so on a $70K a year job. By the way, he also had a Masters degree. Not everyone can live in Obamacare Utopiaville. Some of us have to actually produce tangible products. You are asking yourself, "Who in the HELL would degrade themselves to that level?" Well, Captain Arrogance, I am proud of the companies I have built, the second-to-none products I produce and the relationships forged over these years. If people like myself had your mind set of looking down their noses at people and "eeew yucky!", you would be living in a tent.

Really though, between you and I, I get where you come from about being around such deplorable persons. Those landscapers, electricians, concrete men, all of them. WOW, Am I right?!? Heck, once I stooped so low, I actually spoke to the plumber that came to repair the water heater in my office. THAT'S slummin' it!!!! You live an acute little uninformed life and believe others do so as well. If you haven't learned yet, you are the one who out of step. These ideals were born through experience and it becomes more and more evident, you have little. You ought to apologize to every person you have encountered in recent memory and beg for their forgiveness. Get a hold of yourself and learn to respect people. All people.

If polls mattered as much as you think, Clinton would be sitting in the chair trump is in right now, probably signing some executive order to close gun shows. Trump has never been favored in polls. Not once. But he's the potus now, so thinking polls are accurate and a deciding factor is ignoring recent history.
Those millions that came out and voted for trump don't care who he fires. Go out anywhere and ask them. The only people paying attention to this "drama"and yelling about this are media hacks and democrats, and I'm including those rhinos too. Ask someone who just saw their 401k figures today how they feel about trump firing a guy they never heard of until he got fired. It's only news because it give ammo to the "trump is evil" crowd. To the people going back to work, it's a non issue.

That "moron" was a major player in getting trump elected. He was highly regarded by political movers and shakers on both sides as a guy that could get things done. He quit the campaign but trump rehired him. Then he appointed general Kelly as COS, and he didn't like him, so he had to go. It's just personal. And if your COS wants another guy, you let him hire another guy.

Yeah, I'm sure everybody that knew the Mooch was shocked that he turned out to be a huge embarrassment once he was given such a visible and public role. He'd been such a classy and well-spoken guy up until then, I'm sure.

What's the big fuss. If you hired someone for a position and than that person did something wrong you would fire them.

Not firing him would give reason for concern.

Nope. If you are in the position of hiring and firing you are bound to hire the wrong person from time to time.

Trump is incapable of poor judgment. Everything he does is brilliant, because he did it. Therefore, it is brilliant. Even if it appears to be a dumpster fire, it's brilliant, because Trump did it. And that is exactly why we elected him - because everything he does is brilliant.

Stop questioning and reasoning. There is no evaluation needed. It's all brilliant.

Not much reason to have a discussion with most. This blind faith or whatever you want to call it is hard for me to grasp. I guess we can just wait until the flames stop pouring out of the dumpster....then we can go see what is remaining of conservatism in our country. Looking ahead I'm afraid trump may be the last "republican" president for many moons. I'm working on putting together my scratch to grab some good deals when the bubble bursts. Maybe that will get me through until everyone forgets about this fiasco. I hope I'm wrong but I don't see this ending well.

I hope it doesn't get that bad. I'm definitely rooting for him. But I won't ever understand the blind loyalty, or whatever it is. I didn't understand it when it was directed toward Obama, and I don't understand it now.

Work in the oil industry. Offshore oil industry.
Or more accurately, the remnants of the oil industry. Lol

Quite the opposite. You act like we are all idiots and cannot follow a directive until someone like you points. You're not the only one with a Masters degree, homie. Down here in the projeks, some of us live in the REAL WORLD bro. We deal with all of it; from the top to the bottom and everything in between. The guy that ducked out to Utah, did so on a $70K a year job. By the way, he also had a Masters degree. Not everyone can live in Obamacare Utopiaville. Some of us have to actually produce tangible products. You are asking yourself, "Who in the HELL would degrade themselves to that level?" Well, Captain Arrogance, I am proud of the companies I have built, the second-to-none products I produce and the relationships forged over these years. If people like myself had your mind set of looking down their noses at people and "eeew yucky!", you would be living in a tent.

Really though, between you and I, I get where you come from about being around such deplorable persons. Those landscapers, electricians, concrete men, all of them. WOW, Am I right?!? Heck, once I stooped so low, I actually spoke to the plumber that came to repair the water heater in my office. THAT'S slummin' it!!!! You live an acute little uninformed life and believe others do so as well. If you haven't learned yet, you are the one who out of step. These ideals were born through experience and it becomes more and more evident, you have little. You ought to apologize to every person you have encountered in recent memory and beg for their forgiveness. Get a hold of yourself and learn to respect people. All people.

LoL I didnt even read all that but I bet you dollars to donuts I've mixed more bags of cement with my bare hands then you have.
I'm talking hauling buckets of sand and rocks on the second roof of buildings.

I'm no stranger to manual labor in July and August.

But I've learned to work smarter and in air conditioned buildings than using my back getting heat stroke.

I know plenty of guys that will slack off a $15 an hour job.
But the guys we pay Infosys $85 an hour for aren't about to mess that up

I'm like a journeyman on a construction site but of the software world.
I've learned so many languages and worked in many different settings that it's all easy now.
I've built residential homes all the way up to sky scrapers.
I've built cheap mobile homes and project housing for the feds all the way to multimillion dollar and multiyear spec homes for the ultra rich.

My role now is building semi spec hones for the semi rich.
We have a standard home but they get to customize it a bit to make it their own.

I dont hire home depot guys to lay this $22 sq ft hardwood.
My crew needs to be highly specialized with great references.

That's the kinda stuff I work with.
How did they come up with that billion dollar figure?
Math.
That's how.
Lots and lots of math.

You should read it all because you are a pathetic excuse for a man and could stand to better yourself. A lot. You lost your own bet, moron. And, the correct word is than, not then. Idiot.

Not everyone chooses to milk the Government tits to make their living. Enjoy your day off on National Jack A*s Day.

Now, run, hide and continue to avoid conversation like the good little plantation mule you are. Fat, happy and stupid. Just like Obama likes 'em.

It's not blind loyalty in this case. It's a response to posts of negative opinions. Some say this is examples of whatever they think trump is doing wrong. Some don't. I don't think this is the earth shattering event it's portrayed by the media. I see it as removing someone that obviously was not going to work out with his new boss. While people will worry about "how this looks", they will ignore that regardless of how any of it looks, the economy is improving, jobs are up, and the consumer confidence index climbed, again, more than at any time in the last 4 years. As I said, this is not an issue that matters. That's not "blind loyalty". That's opinion.

Lmao! Damaging to who...certainly not you since you are on a plane to Colorado for whatever reason.lol Let's be realistic for a minute here. Someone like yourself who likes to claim they are a conservative but yet fly's to Washington D.C. to see the biggest liberal dirt bag to ever sit as President of the United States sworn in speaks volumes my friend. Uh, well, uh...it was paid for, umm, it was a part of history, uh...ummmm, uh. Come on Oscar, you're better than that! I'm buying you a Trump camo hat for this upcoming bow season.

So some here don't like the man which automatically will have them nit picking crap to say he isn't doing a good job. That's called a blind fold. I'm seeing plenty of good being done...not about to get in a pissing match over it. Fact is, we just wiped 8 years of dog **** off our shoes, respect to the white house has been restored, patriotism is flowing red, white n blue through our veins once again, manufacturing is at an all time high (I know, that's what I do for a living) and life is just plain good! Go Trump!!
