    How much and how far do people think? How much is taken for granted or influenced by credentials or peer pressure? Rolex is famous for the self winding Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Just. So what does perpetual mean. Nothing. There is nothing perpetual about the watch. If it isn't moved it runs down and stops. The date has to be manually changed a few times. Nothing perpetual. Who cares?

    Why does a jar lid takes more effort to remove than to put on? Who cares? It is the difference between kinetic friction putting it on and overcoming static friction taking it off.

    Is there a level of acceptance that isn't to be challenged?

    I say no and don't take anything for granted. The other side is to accept credentialism. The fault with credentialism is the biggest credential is money. Money is power. A lot of money is a lot of power. Dutch makes a good point about vetting. Trump would not have passed a logical thinking vetter. He certainly wouldn't be President if he didn't have wealth. Trump got elected because he wasn't subjected to a logical vetting and Trump got elected because of wealth. Money was the biggest factor because it got him past the point of no return. Without money he is irrelevant.

    How does anyone know if trump is wealthy? He's never released his tax documents. For all we know, he doesn't have two nickels to rub together.

    Bing search: bing.com/search?q=trump%27s+estimated+n...

    Illinois' incoming governor JB Pritzker estimated wealth: bing.com/search?q=jb%20pritzker%20estim...

    Should we believe everything we read or hear?

    He could be dead broke but it would be years before it would show. People like that say things like "If you dont loan me another million you'll never see a penny of the hundred million I owe you".

    Big money is power but big debt is even more powerful.

    Mean powerful people with nothing to lose can say anything.
