Trump:

Why do we keep letting people in from s___hole countries?

Media reaction:

"O.M.G.  He is deranged!  26th amendment!  I'm meeeelting!"

Typical voter:

"Yeah, why do we?"

Sure but he should use more diplomatic language when discussion other nations.  Something that isn't being talked about, the assholes that leaked this.   Letting the world know that the president called a couple of countries shitholes only harms the US but nobody's talking about the assholes that chose partisan advantage over the good of the nation.  I suspect because the partisan advantage is going to the favored party of the media.

It was an insensitive remark.  The media will get over it.   Eventually.

He's the President, when he wants to use his diplomats to speak diplomatically, he will.

When he feels like mentioning that Haiti is a shithole, he will.

Doubt many in the media care about the word used in private meeting. Got to have controversy to get viewers.

Do you think Haiti is a shithole? I do.

97% of the media want to burn Trump at the stake. They want to latch on to this statement to "prove" that Trump wants  to kill colored people.

Haiti has an average IQ of 67.  In the US. that's considered just below the range for intellectual disability.

The libertarian solution?  Leave them alone.  They will rise as far as their limited intellect allows them.  If a wise ruler were to come to power there and establish a libertarian system, they could happily find an equilibrium as farmers and skilled workers with the upper ten percentile of them taking care of professions.

Really? A "wise ruler" will impose Liberty on them? Whether they like it or not? And the wise ruler already has it figured out who should be "professionals" and who should be peasants?

I believe I said they would find their equilibrium.  People would rise to the levels their abilities allow them to.  Libertarians support that, Jeff.  Look it up.

But yes.  For a country like Haiti, a wise ruler, aka a benevolent dictator, is probably the only way they will ever have a libertarian system.  Their low-IQ's will prevent their ever voting in a system of freedom.

Of course that is not going to happen.  It's hypothetical.  Something else for you to look up.  Along with Sally Hennings, when you have time

What? You said the "upper ten percentile" were scheduled to be "professionals"... You've changed you mind? It sounded planned before, now it sounds like free competition.
