Miles Taylor, an anti-Trump die-hard Republican and former Trump appointed U.S. Department of Home Security Chief of Staff tweeted yesterday, “Donald Trump is a man without character… it’s why me and my colleagues have spoken out against him.”
Taylor has an American University arts degree and scholarship-funded Master of Philosophy degree from Oxford. Given these supposed educational qualifications how is his illiteracy possible?
Surely when writing “me has spoken out…” this would immediately feel massively wrong, but apparently not so.
My (assumption) explanations are first, this four year’s old speech says everything about contemporary university degrees, so many nowadays being a joke in any intellectual or academic sense.
The second possibility, indeed probability, is Taylor is not a reader. No book reader could possibly write “…me has spoken out…” any more than they would hack off their feet and eat them uncooked.
It’s odds on Taylor suffers from cell-phone addiction, a modern day plague only now being appreciated as to its immensely mind-rotting effects.
Consider this incident a few days ago. Strolling past one of my CBD office buildings with two new female employees, we entered the ground floor foyer to look at the artwork.
There we encountered a ferrety looking middle-aged bloke barking into a cell-phone. I told him to piss off and go into the street. His response,
“I had the courtesy not to enter the lifts and use the phone in a confined space with other people.”
To see any logic in that suggests serious mental decay.
First, it wasn’t an issue of options as it’s not bloody compulsory to bellow into those things in public spaces.
Second, as I pointed out to him, I don’t want to encounter him having a crap in our foyer and excusing it on the grounds he “didn’t do it in a crowded lift”.
He scuttled off to the lifts, hopefully a visitor as we try and maintain standards re lessees, such as no fat buggers for example.
Here’s another observation re cell-phones. Newspapers frequently show photos of people leaving courts in which they’re up on criminal charges or taking a beating in a civil matter. Almost without exception they’re shown bawling into a cell-phone.
I have a fairly extrovert nature, live a busy life and enjoy socialising with a wide range of people yet I’ve never once used a cell-phone, indeed I wouldn’t know how to. Despite that handicap I seem to struggle by somehow.
So back to the beginning, I’d wager serious money Miles Taylor is a cell-phone addict.
