So who out there makes Donald Trump (#15 FCIL) look like a cuddly puppy? Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but there is one man who gives “The Donald” a run for his money. He’s now Special Advisor to the Managing General Partner and Chairman of Basketball Operations for the Philedelphia 76ers, and his name is Jerry Colangelo, another #15 FCIL. One inside source says he believes Colangelo is capable of coming in and changing the culture right away in Philly, which is desperately needed. It’s his way or the highway, said another league source. He rules with an iron fist. He’s old school. He’s got an ego. When he was with the Suns, you did your job or you were gone. I don’t expect anything different now.
Sounds pretty typical #15, doesn’t it? To be sure, it is what makes many FCILs successful in life, though it can also leave them with only few friends in the end. Yet, some are able to mask this ambitious fire, however, such as Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, or even Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner.
Speaking of Trump for a moment, he is the only candidate so far to speak out against Paul Ryan (#15 FCIL) for compromising on the 2016 budget (allowing $1.1 trillion in spending). The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people, he said late Thursday night. If anyone needed more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker [Paul] Ryan. To avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent President, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.”
Nice to see one #15 calling out another #15. Unless things change, Ryan may quickly become another John Boehner (#7 FEIL).
The real question is … what would Jerry Colangelo do as Speaker?
