Sorry, I’m totally unprepared for this one.
Ain’t going to happen.
Can he come and have rational thoughts at the same time?
I think I’m ready.
What kind of wacky cult is he following?
Not happening here, indeed.
Wait until the primaries are over and they have to justify their claims to each other. Gonna be a lot of, "Well, that was just for the publicity angle. I didn’t really mean it (only couched in weasel words so they can be “interpreted” to say what they “really meant”).
Trump is leaving ??
Lots of rational thought out there! You just have to know where to find it not listen to the useful idiots.
Rational thought? Some still prefer to believe in a perfect world.
You’ll know a rational thought when you see it …
Everybody will be ignoring it.
Oh, I’m prepared. I’ve been prepared since the early ‘70s. And so far, I’ve seen nothing that qualifies.
This is sort of like the end of the world is near sign. We know it’s going to happen but when is the question.
And the cloning of irrational ideas.
Megalomaniacal thoughts seem to be the essence of the tweetyverse these days
Lets aim for abstract thought and work up from there.
Spoiler alert. Murdering someone to prevent the spread of rational thought was the theme of ‘The Name of the Rose.’
Nah, we’re too busy trying to make sense of Trump’s rambling and rants via Twitter.
“Locke, I Kant give a Fichte”
Actually, millions of the children of our most irrational citizens are falling away from the nonsense, especially the irrational hatreds, every year. Their elders are reacting to that fact even more irrationally.
Time for the return of Megaconglome Corp, The Ekert & the Anti-Ekert – Wiley, When?
I though Rational thought died along with common sense
The trouble with ‘rational thought’ is enforcing the rational decision.
Not in my lifetime!!
Can’t be soon enough.
Obviously, he’s not foreshadowing most mainstream news agencies (the AP is okay, though).
Developing rational thought is a three-step process. 1. No Facebook. 2. No Fox News. 3. No Fox and Friends.
I think that’s highly unlikely!
Sadly, those with binary cognitive processing biases cannot be educated because they will never accept data that doesn’t support their preconceptions, thus it is pointless to try. All one should do is pat them on the head and state “Good for you” and move on.
Coming rational thought? Does that mean that the anti-Trump cult of hate is shutting down and allowing those with common sense and actual facts to emerge again? Well that WOULD be good!
Well a least that’s a positive spin on the usual end of the World scenario.
When I took educational psychology I read that up to 2/3 of adults never reach the intellectual stage of critical thinking. My immediate reaction was that seemed kind of low.
I feel that we’re safe from this fate for quite some time…
Boy, we haven’t see much of THAT since about 1968…except for the 8 years between 2001 and 2009…
After reading the comments so far …. we have a ways to go. But where that actually leads us is hard to tell.
That’ll never happen any more.
You can’t handle the truth.
Sorry, TDS is here to stay!
Nobody can start a heated discussion like Mr. Wiley.
Fat chance that
The middle 40% of the political bell curve, aka – The Moderate!
been waiting most of my adult life …
I like his sunglasses.
To bring rationality we must act and think rationally. Spock on ST had a hard time being surround by emotional irrational humans.
Coming, hopefully, in 2020.
Rational thought!!?! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAah…ahh…whew! You are one wacky dude, Wiley! rational thought! heh heh…
Expecting rational thought from any pol is like expecting careful thought for the welfare of the US from Buttercup. Ain’t gonna happen no how no way.
Mr. Spock is coming?
It’s irrational to pay attention to such bloviators. Though it is a little like taking Ginko Biloba (which, you may recall, is supposed to make your brain work better). I tried it. I worked too: I stopped as soon as I was smart enough to realize it was silly.
