Blacks, even ivy-league blacks, just not very sharp.

I know, i know... but still true.


What an idiotic statement but I am sure you have stats to back it up, otherwise you would not said it.

Of all the people that have been public officials and you pick Michelle Obama? Really? She's leagues more competent than her husband and is one of the few sane public officials we've had in the past 60 years, and something from 33 years ago won't change that.

Not necessarily. The buffoon in chief has enabled acerebral racists the world over. He probably made said idiotic statement because he's an idiotic racist. Sometime's Occam's Razor has its moments...

I got about half way through the first paragraph before my brain said 'done' and vacated the premises.

I don't dislike Michelle; she has done many good things but this was not one of them, i mean, c'mon, I have. A. High. School level of education....i'd throw an ampersand in there but i'm too busy trying not to facepalm.

When is the OP going to attack Trump for every idiotic thing he writes or says.


Never.

Because Trump doesn't claim to be something he is not, nor does he pretend to be some psuedo-intellectual "better than you" horse's ass like Michelle.



Not to sure about that


Donald J. Trump
‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump

Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure,it's not your fault


At a press conference in New York on Wednesday evening, Donald Trump said that China respects his 'very, very large brain.'

Oops, looks like he does make psuedo-intellectual "better than you" comments

Wrong answer. If it was President Trump you would be all over it like a bad rash. Again answer the question with an answer not another question.

If you want to find intelligence, obviously you got to go to the top



“Look, having nuclear — my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart — you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world — it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican they try — oh, do they do a number — that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune — you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged — but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me — it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are — nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? — but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners — now it used to be three, now it’s four — but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years — but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.”

The left is hanging her out to run for President. Why can't you see that this Marxist charade needs to be outed. The Bill Ayers connection. The ACORN connection and socialist movement it represents. We have a full on assault on our Constitution. It includes Democrats and many Republican rhino idiots.

It gets nauseating when our President gets hammered for just walking and Michael Obama causes lightheaded giddiness and butterfly releases. GET REAL. You are the product of extreme social engineering plain and simple.

And yes Trump is not perfect but has the proper personality to take on this Globalist assault on our country.

The fact that this thread is 2nd on the front page of this website speaks volumes about the quality of content and the majority of its members. Then again my current post pointing this out really is just as useless and sad as this thread and the members I called out in the first sentence so ........... Yeah I got nothing here.

Except she is the same racist piece of garbage now that she was then. No that's not right, she is an even bigger piece of racist trash now.


You used the wrong punctuation in this sentence. It should say " No, that's not right, she is an even bigger piece of racist trash now." You forgot the comma.

No, I wouldn't.

Trumps college thesis is meaningless.

That doesn't make Obama's thesis


Maybe you replied to the wrong person?

I never said anything about obamas thesis.

I personally think anyone who cares about this is silly.

I had a chemistry professor in college that would hand out applications for McDonalds and Burger King to people that did poorly on tests. He'd staple them to the test so the whole class could see who got them as he handed them back.
Best professor I ever had.

She would've gotten an application.

I don't think you can use college as an active measure of intelligence...it's basically a club where you can do little to apply yourself but given enough money you will pass regardless. No college wants a high failure or drop out rate as it's bad for business. With that said I don't think she's a moron because her thesis was less than well written. I'm not a huge fan of the left but I also can say that she is clearly not a moron...grammar is not that great but that should not be the measure of a person..Henry Ford did not graduate high school but he seemed to do ok...

OK, this is obviously something that bothers you, so now that I've sobered up since my last post, I've read through it and made some comments below. On top of the experience of being an English teacher for roughly a decade, and a magazine editor for roughly a decade, I've also written a Masters thesis and a PhD thesis, and had a handful of books, chapters and articles published - I only mention that last part as during the course of the research I would estimate I've read somewhere around 200 theses and dissertations, judging by how many I have saved on my computer here.

My thoughts on her thesis are:

1. The language, syntax and grammar is fine. It is an academic writing style consistent with a whole bunch of other theses I’ve read from that era. The liberal use of commas might seem clunky, but they are used correctly. Writing styles do evolve over time (such as the use of the Oxford comma, which I absolutely still use, and obviously so did Michelle). The main errors are spaces in the wrong spot (such as before a comma or inverted commas) – more on this in point 4 below.

2. There’s a few other stylistic and linguistic things which point to the thesis being 33 years old, such as the use of double hyphens, indented paragraphs, double-spaces after full stops, and words like “predominately”, which is correct but “predominantly” is more commonly used today. Again, this is stuff that evolves over time.

3. It’s important to remember what this was written on. In 1985, people didn’t have the clean layout of MS Word which put squiggly red lines under all of your errors. It would have predated Windows 1.0. If it was written on a PC, it would have used a DOS-based Power Menu or similar, and using WordPerfect or WordStar or similar. These were brutal word processing programs. Editing was hard work on them.

4. There are a few things which suggest to me it may have been written on an electric typewriter. For one, it’s not printed with a dot-matrix printer. Second, most electric typewriters would pick up spelling mistakes but not things like spaces before a comma. Anyone who has used an electric typewriter knows they usually showed a couple of lines on an LCD panel only – they were horrible for proofing on. You usually only found errors when proofing the printed copy, and it meant that fixing something like a space in the wrong spot could often mean re-typing an entire page, or even a chapter in some cases. Even if they found the mistake, most people wouldn't correct something like that. Only glaring errors were worth the time.

5. The main gripe for me is the use of first person. I hate it, and if I need to refer to a personal experience I believe it should be in the form of “it is the experience of the author that…”. But I also know that the use of first person is something that has gone in and out of fashion many times over the years. It could have just been in fashion at the time.

6. For those suggesting it’s not a worthy topic, remember – thousands of these things are written every year. The odds that every one is going to be breaking new territory are tiny. I’ve read some cracking theses before, but I’ve read some absolute garbage. A thesis or dissertation is really just a demonstration that you know how to undertake research, though. Nobody reads them except for other researchers looking to support their own topic.

In short, I have no problem with the way it’s written. It’s entirely consistent with other theses I’ve read from the same era, and would have been written on some pretty primitive equipment compared to today. If you want to hate her, that’s fine, but calling her a moron, etc, based on this alone is way over the top in my humble opinion.

No matter how you slice it, she’s far more literate the the current illiterate that is occupying in the White House. And you don’t need a smocking gun to know that. a reply to: Dfairlite

Whoever thought it was a good idea to comment on Michelles intelligence while the man who is dumber than a fifth grader is in the white house has some huge cojones.
