    @johngordon so details of election beside the point.

      @johngordon randomness which picks particular people but underlying tensions driving conflict. Had HRC won (as she easily could have) the conflicts would still be present just take different form.

        @johngordon surprise this isn't getting more press. Why would anyone use Wells Fargo?

          @johngordon I'm not sure that's quite what he said - but it's also a short quote

            @cgiffard what is behavior tracking?

              @duerig @cgiffard @jnm Used to be the great thing about the internet was finding answers to these things. People enjoyed answering questions.

                @duerig And from the other side It’s amazing how much you can learn when you don’t mind looking stupid.

                  @johngordon Likewise a lot of Trump supporters were rural non-college educated but often reasonably to quite wealthy. Culturally Trump has a lot in common with them despite his going to college. & Trump never was accepted by NYC elites.
                  clarkgoble
                    @johngordon No Trump backers are elites who were accepted by main elites (who really cover cross section of right and left). Similarly Bernie & company are elites not in mainstream. When there are too many elites you have fights within elites for position.

                      @duerig I doubt Trump will change that. At best he *might* get a few tarrifs in place before the WTO starts judgments against him. He’s far more constricted than press is portraying.

                        Goes to show politics is mostly about identity not ideas. → "The free market has been sorting [the economy] out and America’s been losing" % Agree: Democrats: 33% Republicans: 57% https://twitter.com/williamjordann/status/806255450693992448/photo/1

                          Thought this about GOP for years - interesting seeing Ds pick up their bad habits → It’s fascinating to see what infuriated partisans define as “fighting dirty.” http://natl.io/knpyWU via @jimgeraghty

                            → No. American consumers are taxed even if no companies move. Tariff increases production costs & limits competition. This is basic economics. https://twitter.com/scottadamssays/status/805610534955401216

                              @jws @erikschmidt But bigger issue is enjoying short term fun over long term ‘investment’ (whether financial or more importantly skill based)

                                @jws @erikschmidt I’m not sure it’s due to nature of school although that’s a part. It’s hard for people to understand why unenjoyable learning is so important for a base for later learning in college.

                                  @johngordon In some ways, but I think it should have been obvious we’d see rise in autoimmune diseases which are pretty broad. (And not always well diagnosed)
