Yeah, business as usual, my friend. The Super Duper Big Bragging Bullshitter Baby in Chief of the Disunited States of Amnesia* is doing it again. This is how a deal is made by mr Dealfucker:

  1. Shout louder than the opponent;
  2. Make him** look smaller, preferably invisible, but call him a great guy and friend;
  3. Do not give him opportunity to speak;
  4. If any thought of him still comes through, spin it;
  5. Incessantly repeat your own crooked version of reality and deal; keep insisting that all other opinions are fake;
  6. Although the opponent does not agree at all, keep shouting that he agrees-and praise him for it;
  7. A deal is a decision made by yourself, based on your own world view at your own interest, denying the world view and interest of others (you are a winner and you win, everybody else is a loser, they loose).
