President Trump's (fill-in-the-blank) is nothing short of treasonous!

Trump's (fill-in-the-blank) was one of most disgraceful performances by a US President!

So the leftists are outraged at President Trump again, and I am supposed to care?

If the amount of caring about something could be quantified and categorized in degrees on a geometric ray displayed horizontally from left to right, whereby the left endpoint 'A' represents a total lack of empathy dedicated to a subject, and every successive point traveling to the right along the ray towards the arrowhead symbolizing infinity is a measureable increase in the amount of concern I feel
- I am never quite able to reach a "full capacity" of caring, as there is always a possibility for additional solicitude. If I were to declare, "I could care less" as my position on this ray for a certain topic, it would mean that I was dedicating some degree of burden, albeit potentially just an infinitesimal sliver('B'). If "I could care less", then by definition, "I care more than nothing". Maybe a lot more, in which case I could specify by stating "I could care tremendously less" which implies a simplified version as "I care"('C').

However,  with regards to the media and their "outrage at Trump" -  I am located at endpoint 'A', it means my level of "care" is a black void of total and utter indifference. That is to say that "I couldn't care less".

Tomorrow's lesson, a pie graph of "not giving a sh*t" and  "People who claim to give 110%". Please remember to bring your protractors. Class dismissed.


  1. My money is on Trump. I couldn't care less what the MSM says.

  2. WOW. The presser in Helsinki was badly handled, and ridiculously received....

    Were I Trump, I'd have said “..the Helsinki talk with Putin went well, I don’t care what some of you think. I will not reveal what was said in private, but I will say that I wasn’t going to stand up there and lambaste Putin in public. And, if I had, I’d have had horrid criticism, too, bet on that. It went WELL, people. Stay tuned to what could come next. Stop the hate, stop the conjecturing. God bless America.”

  3. Dang, I knew I shoulda paid more attention in geometry class.....

  4. Cube, You have to play the streak. I will put your marker on the "A"A.

    Z, Great advice. Nobody (that I've heard) has even mentioned the fact that they spoke in private. My best guess is that Trump had Pootie poot in a head lock and gave him repeated noogies.

    Kid, My professional graphs are a bit intimidating.

  5. I've met a number of people who have always confuse me by not knowing the difference between I could care less and I couldn't care less. I'm glad you've made yourself clear on the subject.

  6. DaBlade: You said, "Cube, you have to play the streak. I will put your marker on the "A"A."

    Should I know what that means?

  7. Ed, I admit I have misused the phrase myself in the past. That is why I keep a folded up copy of that chart in my pocket.

    cube, Another case of fat finger double key stroke. The second "A" doesn't belong and is probably what threw you. The fist "A" is the plot on my graph indicating your lack of empathy toward the media hysteria. I will try harder in the future not to double key strike my commentssss.

  8. DaBlade: Got it now. Thanks for the explanation. Asking questions is why I was never one of the cool kids in high school but one of the stars in college.
