The Gentrification of Greed

One must be politically correct to avoid micro-aggression when speaking of greed:

What used to be greed is now referred to as enterprise.

The capitalist pig of yesterday is now referred to as a venture capitalist to preserve their self-esteem.

The corrupt aren't bad people, but merely ethically challenged.

Greed, more properly referred to as profit, is a reaffirmation of self-worth.

Referendum

Was the Trump election a referendum on the government or the voting populace?

Did an entitled population choose one who feels entitled to hold office over one with the skill-set and experience to hold office?

The question gets murkier with a CEO cabinet staff of people with little government experience outside of lobbying for corporate influence or bailouts during the 2007 economic meltdown.

Trump thinks he can turn a profit from exercising his presidential power. What he doesn't get is the likes of Putin aren't about the money; they are about power. Is this a case of ignorance - being too dumb to know better, or arrogance - too blind to the truth of being used?

It's difficult to know if Donald Trump's Twitter tantrums are braggadocio or bold fa├žade of someone in over their head.

What's for certain is that things will be different after January 20, 2017.

Jackie O style redux

How will America, and the world at large, endure the sight of overweight women who feel entitled to ape the style of a first lady with the supermodel looks of Melania Trump?

At least there will be someone there to defend their self-esteem from being cyber-bullied.

The Trump Brand

The voters have spoken.

They invested their votes in Donald Trump.

What remains to be seen is the kind of value the Trump brand brings to America.

Engaging the Millenials

Engaging the millennials in the job place is a popular management scheme. They must be allowed to have fun and be creative on the job.

Do they come to their job to to work or be entertained?

Is the performance aspect of managers' evaluation reviews based upon how efficiently he managed the department, or how well he entertained the staff?


What about the investors? Do they measure the profit on their investment in terms of efficient management, or entertained staff? Would they say of a failed company that it lost their money in an entertainingly creative way?

The Trump voter species

What makes a Trump voter?
People who think their uniqueness entitles them to superiority over everyone else - especially anyone who dares disagree with the omniscience their uniqueness confers upon them.
Their life experience reinforces the infallibility in the entitlement of their self-esteem. Helicopter parents and video games they play reinforce their sense of unlimited immunity to the consequences of their actions. There is no conflict they cannot settle in their favor:
An opponent may be persuaded by bullying.
A favorable test score may be obtained by cheating.
A coveted job may be obtained by lying on a job application.
For them, there is no such concept as a breach of ethics.
These are the people entitled to a Trump presidency.
America deserves Donald Trump
