    What if the key to be rich is only that you keep people down. When there is no new frontier, then there is no new money, I think, so the whole innovation race is to pocket as much as possible of what is left around. I observe innovation in these fields. For example banks trading secrets for automatic underwriting in government, totally new and innovative concept, never happened before.

    . Your right that Trump is but one man, however he is trying to convince us to break the chains that bind, and for us to become an America that works again. Now this is not to suggest to merely work in the physical sense, but rather to use all of our senses to help ourselves, and this nation to be all that it can be. First we must identify, and work to break the mindset of those who still operate with the same mentality that the old plantation owners of the old south had. That mentality still exist to this day, and constantly empowering it is a problem, and a serious road block to progress or foward thinking.

    This would require that somehow Trump can allocate many billions of taxpayer dollar to scientists and their antarage to "lose". The free student loan money printing machine has been bypassing the scientific community totally so far.

    Have any of you been around people who except no new thought or ideas, and so it's their way or the highway regardless of how good an idea is or how it could actually save thousands of dollars in the long haul ? Depending on how many of these types exist in the controlling aspects of our society, it then determines the stagnation that will occur as a result, and determines how rampant it runs in many areas.... It also can determine the amount of abuse that does occur in these areas of life just as well.

    The problem within any of this stuff, is found within the tolerance of these things that hold us back, and how people become lost in the swamps of life within these areas... Then they end up slaving away for their masters in thought that they will never be able to free their minds from the bogg in which they have been placed in all depending on the circumstances of life.

    If have ideas, there should be a way that they can be expressed freely, openly, and also submitted freely by a simple meeting of the same types of minds in unity, and then to have open ears willing to listen, to ponder, and to explore the many possibilities once again.

    Class warfare, and regs implemented to protect classes of people, and their special interest has killed so much progress in America. That is a shame and disgrace is what it is or has become.

    We as a nation can do better, and we should always be in search of that diomond in the rough no matter where or what level it lay upon. Trump spoke of modern airports, and a renewal of the minds in order to graduate many parts of our nation into the 21st century.

    I was raised to be a free thinker, in the schools I attended. My own children have very encountered a broad range of views themselves. I can't say their schools have brainwashed them in any way. I'm a centre left, my son is a hard right and my daughter is a leftist. Schools have enough to do without being nefarious political operatives, lol

    They did that when I was a kid, and none of us were fooled that we had achieved anything. Kids aren't stupid. I doubt receiving such a thing would warp the initiative of any halfway sentient child

    . Nothing wrong with participation trophies for all, just as long as they don't take away from the value of the winning trophy or the second place trophy. When participation trophies drag the winners down, then we all fall down in the end. Otherwise it's like at work where you are busting your butt, yet others are figuring out every way that they can to stand around gossiping at the water cooler, and in the process getting out of work every way that they can, and then getting the same pay as you are getting ? Bad situation that is. There are so many situations, and so many abuses.
