    Lesson- You can get more customers for a book hating on someone than you can for a book about making deals.

    are any of his supporters buying the book?
    if so, will they be influenced and change their vote?

    That's exactly what I said. To more people hating on someone is more interesting than reading about making deals.

    Maybe they're waiting for the graphic novel instead? :scratch:


    At this stage I suspect there's very little chance of anything influencing them to not vote for him. :wave:

    only if you think the word "hating" is synonymous with "interesting" would those two statements be "exactly what was said". :wave:

    To many people the only interest they seem to have is hating.

    I'm not buying that book and I'm fine being a Republican. The only book I like is the Bible.

    Lot of that going around apparently, because some people seem to mistake "interesting" for "hating". :)
    tulc(much like "honestly pointing out when someone isn't doing a good job" somehow becomes "why do people have to be haters?") :scratch:

    Hating and finding interest depends on who you ask.

    ...uhmmm...okay...but isn't that sort of one person deciding some other persons motives for doing something? Kind of like "I really feel I should point out the things where the person who's supposed to be representing me to the rest of the world is doing a very bad job at that." somehow becomes "Why are you being such a hater?"? In other words someone doesn't so much look at what someone is saying but rather simply assigns a motive for why they said it? :scratch:

    That has to be in the top 10 of dumb things posted anywhere on the internet. Do you honestly believe we’re nothing more than amoebas, stimulated by random emotions? Do you think that people writing detailed biographies of disturbed people who arrive in positions of power only do so because they ‘hate’ them? Is that really how basic your ideas are? I find it hard to believe that is what you actually think, so presumably you are dismissing the book because it threatens your ideas about the world, and you’d prefer to just stick your fingers in your ears.

    I don't understand why you mentioned a good portion of that but okay. You mentioned the "hater" thing to another person so why bring it up with me? You contradict yourself anyways. You say clearly that one person should not be "deciding" the motives for someone but yet you state that Trump is not doing a good job but clearly half of the country or more likes him. Sounds like you're just a hater and you have "decided" his motives in little more than a short paragraph. I stated that one person will have difference of opinion but clearly you say that there is an objective opinion (to hate him) and that is subjective, not objective. I can say that Trump is the best thing since sliced bread and I wish I lived when Regan was president as I would say great things about him as well. Look at Trump's many accomplishments, look at his approval rating, some people are just finding excuses to hate him because he doesn't have his heads in the clouds and he's not bending over backwards for Congress, the swamp, and the alike. He has a backbone and I enjoy that. He's brash, but I don't care. That's the honest truth.

    I understand, it's lot's easier to file what someone says under: "He's just a hater!" than to try and understand/refute what's being said. That's why I don't take it personally when people say stuff like that to me. :wave:

    The comment wasn’t intended to be taken out of context. And still isn’t.
