"Trump has never had a personal bankruptcy."
And that is supposed to mean what? He is using US corporate law to hide his personal assets from being part of a bankruptcy. The government itself can't do that. He can talk big about growing the military but that takes tax money and he doesn't pay fedral taxes or have you forgotten?
"Any clown can stand up and promise anything"
The orange clown has already done that proving your point? After all, he has promised a wall across the southern US "a great wall" paid for by Mexico. If you believe that promise, PT Barnum was right. He promised to round up 15 million or so illegals, but doesn't say how, and with the debt you are worried about, doesn't look like that promise will take place either. He promises to make America great again but can't tell you when it was great or what it will be like. He promises manufacturing jobs coming back here while he himself and his children are busy buying their products overseas. "Where's the beef?" Trump steaks? Trump airlines? Trump wine? Enjoy the comedy show.
I also see two different paths. We have one candidate hyping tax cuts when he himself doesn't pay federal taxes anyway, so how do you cut his any more? I have been through tax cuts before, and there is no doubt in my mind that trickle down is a failure. We are at the lowest federal income tax rates in most taxpayers' lifetimes. The rates are so low that I pay a lower % of federal income tax now than I did when I was eighteen years old working at menial job. We can't stand having a govt. with little revenue. What looks like the govt getting loads of revenue such as corporate tax high rates turn out to be very low, as after deductions are applied, little to any corporations pay that much. The figure there is only to fool the masses of wage earners thinking corporations pay a lot. Compare the total revenue to the feds in 1960 from corporate taxes to what they receive today in corporate taxes as a % of the whole. Eisenhower warned us against a military industrial complex, and Trump wants to make it even bigger. I do know that when Bush loft office, unemployment was well over 7% and now it is far lower. Gas prices were far higher when Bush left office than they are today. Oil imports were far higher when Bush and his buddies left office than they are today. Teen pregnancies are far lower today than they were when Bush left office. It goes on and on. Where was the stock market when Bush left office and where is it today? Have a great week.
It is an election between two unpopular people. One candidate has a sleazy public past in service, but has generally wanted what was best for the majority of Americans, not just for one American. She has worked hard on social issues, wants banking controls, wants a public option in healthcare to reduce cost drastically for Americans and their healthcare cost and to remove most of the profit driven healthcare system we have that has resulted in poor care for the highest dollar with no end in sight., She is smart enough to realize that the rest of the industrialized world made that jump in healthcare and not one of those countries wants our system, because most had it at one time and saw its failures. There is a reason that she is supported by a far greater majority of educated college graduates than her closest rival. Her rival, on the other hand is a thrice married (smallest form of govt. is marriage) six times bankrupted megalomaniac that believes he is smarter than the generals and is the "only" person capable of fixing govt. He has made money and stiffed many in the process, but it was all about himself. He gets riled in tweets and requires all sorts of spin doctors to interpret what he says, but those won't be available when he talks directly to world leaders. He has a dictatorial mindset that wants to jail political opponents much like Duterte in the Philippines. I likes loud boisterous crowds and loves to incite. It feeds his ego. He convinces the uneducated that he will bring jobs back, but it won't and can't happen and eventually jobs will be replaced through automation anyway. He is a vulgar, four letter word diplomat, that has many of the pseudo christians known as evangelicals to condone and back is hill behavior. He has offered little other than to make an unwarranted claim he would build a wall across the southern border and have another country pay for it. Big difference. I support neither
chugmy isn't a woman. Wikileaks already let me know. Otherwise, why would be say bite me or chugmy10. Identity crisis he has. I don't need to toot a horn at what I do for poor and disenfranchised, but I will just leave it as I do stuff. DT is a con man. He says how much he cares for various entities such as veterans, but if there was any truth to what he said, he would have paid taxes to insure their salaries and benefits. Instead, he chose to dodge any payment of taxes to support things required by citizens of the nation. He lands at airports paid for by taxes he didn't pay. If he has gone to a national park, he shouldn't be let in, as he hasn't paid any taxes that keep it operating. Chugmy likes that kind of person. One who takes, takes, takes, takes and takes and then pumps out their chest that they provided jobs. Every slave owner provided jobs and help insure low unemployment figures. No kudos for chugmy.
Liberals were for considering slaves as human beings. Liberals were ones who thought that women should be able to own property and vote. Liberals were the ones that thought burning people at the stake as witches was not a good thing. Liberals were the ones who wanted to outlaw child labor and have minimum wage. Arch conservatives like chugmy are part of the reason the world is falling apart. They become narcissists and their love for money is their downfall. Conservatives wanted no safety laws, no pollution laws, no voting rights laws, but rather they preferred owning and controlling.
The professed freedom, but it was only for themselves. Sad.
Poor Mr. chugmy1.0,
"There is no global warming. Period."
That is OK...At least in America you can think what you want. Of course you are at odds with the vast vast majority of scientists. The ice caps are melting the global water temps are rising and you are in denial (and I don't mean the warming river in Egypt.) Of course you don't care what the newspapers printed in Hawaii regarding Obama's birth 50 years ago, but you can't defend DT's claims and yet you worship him. You can deny climate change and global warming or join the Flat Earth Society. Whatever makes you high...go for it chugmy1.0. In the meantime, have a papaya, a few rambutan, mangosteen or longan and enjoy the day shorting FRO. Let us know what you gleaned at the next Flat Earth Society meeting.
Wonderful accurate expose'
Mr. chugmy 1.0,
You failed to answer the questions. Nice try though, and I certainly think that with your doctorate in environmental science along with your doctorate in business from Harvard certainly should give you some good business and scientific acumen regarding global warming. Trumplestiltskin may have conned you, as he did many of his money lenders, but that doesn't change facts. You are entitled to your opinions but that doesn't entitle you to alter facts. You are correct in that you don't know about Obama's birthplace, but doesn't it seem kinda funny to you that two editions of newspapers announced it when it happened in Hawaiian papers over a half century ago, and his birth certificate, other than the dates and names is identical to every other birth certificate of the men and women who serve in the military from Hawaii? If you think there was a conspiracy over 50 years ago to have somebody's name printed in the Honolulu papers trying to hide a Kenyan birth, because it would prevent this person from running for president, you need some serious mental help.
"And I'll tell you something, every time Trump makes an allegation or states a position it is true OR comes to fruition."
What a joke. Let's see....Did it come true that Obama was born elsewhere and not legally president? Let's see, did it turn out true that Ted Cruz' father was working with Lee Harvey Oswald with the Kennedy assassination? Those are just two of Trump's allegations and they didn't either turn out to be true or come to fruition. Let's see, Donald Trump stated that global warming was a hoax and invented by the Chinese. That didn't turn out either. I think brother chugmy1.0 likes to talk "ATTRO". After the truth runs out. He is very similar to Trump. Hot air. After all, his 3 weeks have passed and FRO just isn't where chugmy predicted. OH MY!
How have you been? Sure would be nice to have the old "normal" board back. Isn't it amazing these "big" traders with all their money waste their time here on this board. This board was designed for us low lifers....not the uber billionaire traders.
Then why vote for Trump. He is for corruption. He believes in telling people to work and he will pay them and then defaults on the bargain. He is corrupt to the core. I think the Trump Taj Majal just is laying off near 3000. Maybe he thinks he can retrain them to build a wall and get Mexico to pay for it....lol
Go ahead and vote for Trump. Also, please tell us how Trump addressed his own corporations' personal debts (since corporations are persons now) in the past. On several occasions he just declared bankruptcy. Is he going to do that for the US?
The only thing that will come from that is you won't be posting the next day, and neither will I.
"And Keembodakine, HITLER WAS NOT ELECTED."
Yes...I learned plenty of basic world history. My mistake was thinking that you perhaps understood the difference already between the German governmental system in the early 1930's and today. Carefully read the below paragraphs which are quoted and especially the second paragraph. You might learn something, but with a personality like Trump, I doubt you will ever admit anything except that you are great and are making a great world again. Enjoy the read. I have to go play. Again..enjoy the last paragraph.
"It turned out that there is yet another way to govern without a majority ? in March 1933 the german parliament passed what is known as ?Erm�chtigungsgesetz? (Gesetz zur Behebung der Not von Volk und Reich), a law that allowed the #$%$/Deutschnationale Coalition to govern without the consent of the parliament. That this was in fact an unconstitutional law is a mere technicality ? it was passed with a vast majority that would have allowed to change the constitution in any case, so the parliament skipped a step.
So,since Hitler and the NSDAP had more votes than any other party during the Republic of Weimar and governed on the basis of a law that had been passed by the absolute majority of the parliament is seems reasonable to conclude that he was indeed democratically elected."
You were given links to the comments Mr. chugmy 1.0 but you failed to respond. This isn't like you, as you seem to have an answer to everything. Cat got your tongue?
No...it sounds exactly like Trump. After all, if Buffet thinks Trump is a bad businessman, I will tend to go with Buffet. When Trump said one of the reasons he divorced his first wife was that her breast implants didn't feel right, and when he claimed the present president was not born here and he had "proof," this should pretty well make an "educated" person realize he is a gas bag. When he claims he loves veterans and yet didn't pay taxes to support them, that sounds a little hypocritical, but apparently you don't see that hypocrisy. Don't worry Dan, Trump still likes your wife.
The real problem with Trump is Trump. Even when he tries to claim it was "locker room talk," put it in perspective with his age! How many 59 year old men do you know that are in a prominent position hoping to be role models in a leading role talk about women in the way that 59 year old man spoke about women? At least NBC is firing the Bush boy. They are approaching it correctly. The RNC should say "You're fired" to Trump and let him go it alone while the republican party puts up somebody else as a write in. The vitriolic hatred for HC is amazing. I am not voting for her, but contrary to what one might think, Secretary of State and President is a very difficult job. I am afraid that if Trump is elected, those uneducated folks that put him in power may soon get to witness....momentarily I might add, what a nuclear weapon detonated above their cities might look like. Trump was an unguided missile from the get go. As the old saying goes, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." It is quite understandable to see how Hitler was elected in Germany.
Trump was correct in that he could probably shoot somebody and it wouldn't affect his supporters. Trump's behavior about women is deplorable, and what he said in that big bus was not about anything consensual.
Trump is quite hard on Hillary's reactions to BC's womanizing, but that old old saying that says "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," results in nearly all women who have found out about their husband's infidelity are not real gracious to the women who were part of the liason. That is normal behavior. Men are usually not to congenial to somebody with whom their wife had a liason and was caught. HC's behavior was typical, although she eventually reconciled with her husband. That is unlike what happened in Trump's marriages where they left him one after another, but with tapes like what was divulged recently, his previous wives made the right decision. Trump has made loads of promises and has failed loads of times. He promised to pay contractors and failed and went BK stiffing them and banks which he had promised to pay. He promised each wife a marriage vow and tossed that. He promises making America great and he is destroying it. This election has number one and number two as totally out of favor by the vast majority of Americans. Trump lies more often and Hillary lies plenty. Write in your choice on election day and be proud of what you write.
