My two cents on Trump, the USA election, the American Society and the crazy world we live in today

After the Washington Post released the disgusting audio yesterday with obscene remarks on woman by Donald Trump, many people was shocked. I was too, very much, but not as much as to see that EVEN after that audio was open to the public to discern the kind of person Trump really is, the polls still set Trump very close to Clinton to win the USA election. That is even more shocking to me, because it shows that Trump supporters (and that is at least 4 of every 10 Americans today, perhaps even more after November-hopefully not) support Trump DESPITE his clearly mesogynist, racist, discriminant and repugnant remarks. THAT is THE true shocking part to me: The state where American society stands today. I know, not all society, perhaps just the White-Supremacist part of it, but yet 4 of every 10 Americans anyway. The thought of it is really scary, if you think deeply about it. Very, very disturbing...and may be even more repugnant than Trump's recent words on woman. It is very clear the World is changing in sooo many ways very fast and that it is a crazy, crazy World we live in today.  It is up to us (well in this case to USA citizens, to go the "crazy way" or to get back to being a bit more human. ¿Or...perhaps Trump is "too human" and he is just showing the real nature of "some" US citizens and the way they want it to be?.

So, we all know now who Trump is, right?. In Robert De Niro's words (watch video below) he is a punk, a dog, a pig, an idiot. Well, in about one month the World will know the truth about USA, the truth about their society and the true nature of their people. Time will tell who they really are. And the voters and election results will tell.

Or in other, plain words: Trump only wants to become president, so he can change the laws and legally commit incest with his daughter.

2016 UCI Mountain bike World Championships - Val di Sole (ITA) / DHI Course preview

Two legends in their late 40's, Steve Peat and Rob Warner join Claudio Caluori for a spin at the Val Di Sole Italy course for the DH World Champs 2016. A must see! Warner & Peaty comments while riding this gnarly course are hilarious!

Some sections are actually quiet similar to the Cofre de Perote DH course where I broke my shoulder ligament two years ago...

EPN es un genio...de la incompetencia / EPN is a genius...of incompetence

Excelente artículo de Genaro Villamil en la revista Proceso que describe perfectamente a Enrique Peña Nieto y sus más recientes estupideces.
Excellent article by Genaro Villamil in Proceso magazine perfectly describing Peña Nieto and his most recent stupidities.

Proceso- EPN-genio-la-incompetencia

La parte sobre el síndrome Dunning-Krugger es genial!
Reproduzco aquí un parrafo:

"En los años 90, dos psicólogos de la Universidad Cornell, de Nueva York, sin conocer a Peña Nieto ni a su gabinete, describieron de manera extraordinaria el “síndrome Dunning Krugger”, que describe como pocos el estilo de gobernar del peñismo.
Este síndrome tiene tres principios esenciales:
  1. a) Los individuos incompetentes tienden a sobreestimar sus propias habilidades.
  2. b) Los individuos incompetentes son incapaces de reconocer las verdaderas habilidades de los demás.
  3. c) Los más incompetentes no sólo tienden a llegar a conclusiones erróneas y tomar decisiones desafortunadas, sino que su incompetencia les impide darse cuenta de ello.
El síndrome, según estudiaron Justin Krugger y David Dunning, es común entre personas con escaso nivel intelectual y cultural. Tienden sistemáticamente a pensar que saben más que los que saben y a considerarse más grandes de lo que son. Una megalomanía basada en la ignorancia persistente. La genialidad de Peña Nieto radica en que su “síndrome Dunning Krugger” no sólo convirtió a México y a su sexenio en rehén de su incompetencia, sino que está demostrando que su daño puede ser global, trasnacional y binacional"
