Likes MATH ------ V.S. Trump?

dcarch7 d c f l a s h 7 @ y a h o o . c o m

Met with Bloomberg's team to discuss talking points for his debate tonight.

These talking points may be too late for the debate ------ Can't tell you now what they are, because you never know who is on this Forum. May be after the debate.

I can tell you part of the closing statement:

Bloomberg, "---------------------- I am the only one who can remove Trump, I am a short Jewish guy who likes MATH."

May be I will explain after the debate, it depends.

Enjoy the debate.

Cool, dcarch7!

I am glad to hear Bloomberg is taking debate prep seriously this time. I hope it shows.

MATH —-

Acronym for some ? Entree? Foods? Policy? Don’t let us down, dcarch.

ETA —-

“MATH blank 6 Versus Trump”

blank I am the only one who can remove trump.”

? Like a stain remover? Buy him out with a few billions?

Uncle Joe was lucid. He probably shook himself up last night. I heard the following summary about the debate, from a friend:

It was AWFUL, moderators sucked, Bernie didn't helped himself, Bloomberg did better (but he only had one way to go.), Buttigieg did OK but didn't shine either, Joe did his "I WROTE that bill!" "I WAS THE ONE who did that!" "I GOT THAT DONE!" speeches, Steyer wore his weird tie, Klobuchar should not have said she wasn't boring (that reminds people you're boring).

I was frankly surprised that Warren pulled out the old "fired because visibly pregnant" story again, and no one said anything. We know it's a lie.

It was entertaining, though.

Our talking points didn't get to Bloomberg in time. Otherwise he would have totally demolish Warren. Still possible for the next debate.

But I can explain the one I feel is OK to discuss here, the title of this thread.

The one big difference between Bloomberg and everyone else on the debate stage that no one has discussed, not even by the media is that, everyone is either a lawyer or a liberal art graduate. Bloomberg is in fact, besides an incredibly successful business man, a well respected politician, is also a graduate electrical engineer. So when the hot topic of health care that everyone claims that he/she has a way to pay for free for all,

Bloomberg is supposed to argue that, " Listen, Listen! you have a bunch of lawyer, who are professionally trained to be great debaters and who can defend that 1 + 1 = 5 so convincingly that you actually believe them. Well I an an engineer by training. I don't have the debate skills to fool you. I can only tell you that 1+1=2 and in physics you can't make something from nothing.

Speaking of engineering, two most successful nations in the world, China, the president of China is an engineer, and Germany, Chancellor Merkal is a scientist.
Besides medical care costs, in fact, Andrew Yang, the guy who likes MATH,
is absolutely right in telling you that it is urgent for our country to catch up with robotics, A.I. and 5G technology. If we don’t, never mind the world will end in 12 years, our country will fail forever in 5 years.

On this stage, no insult intended, not one single person knows what they are talking about when it comes to the exact business math of finance, and in robotics, A.I. and 5G. I am the only one. Would love to talk MATH with that guy in the White House.

I am a short Jewish guy who likes MATH."

Bloomberg is a double e, who would have guessed? Cool.

Great debate points. As a lawyer married to an engineer, I really like the bit about lawyers versus engineers debate skills.

Perhaps. Contrition is not the same as contribution for sure. Bloomberg has given more than $ 10 billion away, many for support to minority and female organizations.

I was a math major. Don’t remember the bulk of what I studied as my practical usage has been primarily algebra and geometry. I remember inequalities: 15>3.


But speaking of contributions my question is, should Bernie become the nominee will Bloomberg really offer up all that money and resources to support him?

Bloomberg has said he would regardless of who the candidate is. He said he will leave his organization in place in every State and fund it.

Yes, that’s why I asked the question. Bernie? That might be a hard buck to let go of.

Would be a hard pill to swallow but I think his incredible dislike for Trump and what he is doing would win out. Let's just hope he doesn't have that choice to make.

I think that's a good question, foodonastump. I know Bloomberg said he would, but if it came to funding a democratic socialist...I'd be really surprised if he followed through. My bet would be that Bloomberg believes in capitalism more than he hates Trump.

It doesn't help one bit to be able to understand mathematics if you're talking to people who can't balance their checkbooks or make change.

Isn’t Bernie the one who has refused to accept funds from Bloomberg? Seems a stubborn stance when facing Trump. Advertising can go a long way. You can bet Trump won’t refuse any millions from questionable sources.

LOL!

Zalco,

I get a big kick out of both engineer and lawyer jokes. How about you?

Yeah but no. Bloomberg did not said he’d give money. He said he’d continue his own operations, independent of the nominee’s campaign. So I’m not sure it’s exactly Bernie’s choice to make.

Bloomberg also didn’t put a number on that support. He said it would depend on how much would be needed. So it does leave him the out of saying Bernie (or whoever) doesn’t need his support.

Coincidences? Of course possible.

Read today's news? "

Michael Bloomberg’s Campaign Sought Andrew Yang’s Backing, Floated Vice- Presidential Slot"

After my meeting with Bloomberg's team before the debate:

1. When asked by the moderator "What do you think is the public's misconception about you?" Bloomberg's funny reply, "The public thinks I am 6 foot tall." . Talking point suggestions to Bloomberg's team that he should take advantage of the fact that he is short, that Warren insulted short people the day before the debate.

2. I am a short Jewish guy who likes MATH!!!!!! Read again my second post!!!

I don’t see it as “taking advantage” of the fact that he is short. He’s comfortable with self deprecating humor (see the memes) and is using this to undermine Trump’s attacks. He’s been doing it for a while, e.g. his “measure your height from the neck up” comment earlier in the month.

Actually, its a lot more than that for talking about him being short. As I said, I can't disclose that important strategy here on this forum.

For all the possibilities, A black, a female for VP would be obvious. Why Yang?

I don’t know a ton about Yang but I get the sense many feel he was underrated. He’s Asian, so there’s diversity. Maybe the choice would be looked at favorably by China? Dunno. It seems a few months premature to speculate about veep.

Unfortunately things aren’t looking great for Bloomberg right now. But then, I’d have said the same for Biden a week ago and look where we are. Do you think he’ll stay in the game if Tuesday is a disaster?

I wish the town halls got more viewership. He did MUCH better there than in the debates. Same for Biden. I think they give much better insight than the mudslinging.

Good luck and thanks for your efforts. Go Bloomy.

Have you been to MacDonalds recently? Have you noticed that you can order stuff without talking to a human being?

The biggest promoter for automation are unions and legal minimum wage. Automation is happening at an alarming pace. Very soon, joblessness will be a bigger issue than global warming.

"I don’t know a ton about Yang but I get the sense many feel he was underrated."

I predict in four years, Yang will run again, and his new slogan will not be "MATH",.it will be "I TOLD YOU SO!"

The biggest promoter for automation are unions and legal minimum wage. Automation is happening at an alarming pace. Very soon, joblessness will be a bigger issue than global warming.

The biggest promoter for automation is employee sponsored healthcare costs, regressive payroll taxes, and other employer costs of hiring and retaining employees.

Human beings have been on this planet a minute now, and we have been automating that entire time. Also that entire time people have been forecasting doom as they see their jobs becoming automated, and it hasn't happened yet.

As for the math: I will leave you with a quote from H.L. Mencken, “Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem—neat, plausible, and wrong.”

Adding up numbers that you are given is pretty easy, finding the numbers to add in the first place is a bit more challenging.

I prefer human cashiers at checkout stations. I like to patronize brick and mortar stores, even if they have an online presence. Bed, Bath, Beyond, locally owned grocery stores, even Walmart and Barnes & Nobel.

Does Bloomberg have a BS or MS in EE? Still, beats a reality TV narcissistic con man. However, didn’t MB squelch a lot of bad press by donating to causes, other measures his wealth allowed?

The debates have been lame. Lousy questions and moderators.

Some of the candidates seem to be unable to operate strategically, or to grasp a wide section of their potential voters needs, environment, constraints and pressures. This election is theirs to lose. If my house in on fire, I don’t care about the kindling temperature of Tyvec. Nor do I want Team Grifter and family to “help.”

Please stop with the flailing hands and arms. Serious, a range of competence, an appropriate sense of humor, native intelligence, a minor in street fighting.
