$$$$$$$$$$$ Neocons? Republicans & Secret Democrats? Could that possibly be why both sides of the aisle didn't want us to pull out of Syria and why we fight Endless Wars that we don't fight to win?

I mainly voted against HRC last time. This time I will be voting for Trump, and this is one of the main reasons why. Maybe I'm aiming too high, but I'm really hoping the swamp (establishment) will be exposed enough to fall. It's going to be the first time I've voted FOR someone in a long time.

I doubt Trump is using the office to enrich himself.

YES, the G7 is staying will be hosted at ONE of his 500+ properties next year. So? Seven or so world leaders plus staff staying for a few nights at ONE of 500-some properties? Any "profit" from that won't amount to even a rounding error in the Big Picture of things.

As I said a hundred <censored>ing times, Trump is invested in these properties. He is not making a profit on individual room rentals any more than he is making money off of green fees on his golf courses. This is a stupid argument but morons who don't know what "investment" means are going to sit on their brains scratch their empty heads and think Trump Properties run like the lemonade stand they started as kids.

They need to see that cartoon where Elmer Fudd was an elf and he had to explain to the shoe maker how business grow.

I didn't vote for Trump last cycle. I will this time, enthusiastically.

Pelosi hasn't left office yet, she started with less than 30,000 to her name. She's now worth 135 MILLION DOLLARS and damning anyone else that wants to make that kind of money. Sorry, no, I don't care if the Obama's make money, as you stated they left office and are raking in. That's good for them, that is until they tell me I cannot make the same kind of money through my own hard work (If I can swing it) I am tired of these limousine marxists telling me that rich people are the devil, except for them, they are the good rich people.

Quote

Former Speaker of the House–and current Minority Leader–Nancy Pelosi apparently bought $1 million to $5 million of Visa stock in one of the most sought-after and profitable initial public offerings (IPO) in American history, thwarted serious credit card reform for two years, and then watched her investment skyrocket 203%

Quote

Throw Them All Out also chronicles the Pelosis’ $100,000 IPO purchase of Clean Energy Fuels at roughly $12 a share. Schweizer alleges that as Speaker of the House, Pelosi pushed several bills beneficial to the company.


These are both insider trading. She knew there were bills pending that would impact these stocks and she "invested" before hand. I own CLNE, and it's taken a bath since she bailed on it. The stock is now worth about 2.20 a share. Good company, just not given the support of the leftists in government because they are done with "fossil fuels" so my 120,000 is now worth about 28K thanks to these scum. She made out like a bandit though.

Come on, $500,00 to bring someone to speak is ridiculous, and I don't care who you are

The blind genuflecting before the sighted once again. When will you STOP giving them a pass for this obviously illegal activities. Paul Manafort was cited because he didn't register as a lobbyist for a foreign government. Why wasn't Biden? He is a son of a father and was lobbying on behalf of this company. No Jail, NOTHING. You are blind because you gouged out your own damn eyes, and then wonder why your "race" gets the short end of the stick. LOOK AROUND It's not Republicans oppressing blacks its your own damn party.

Never. She’s a partisan motivated by hatred of the opposite, not research of the issues.

http://www.rightnation.us/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/yeahthat.gif I haven't voted for someone since I voted for Reagan, and sadly, that includes most of my local and state votes. I have only voted against 'the other guy'. In November of 2020 I will gladly march to the polling place and cast my vote FOR President Trump.

I think you could have easily voted "For" Lou Treadway®,County commissioner Orange Co (FL not CA) early/mid '80s. My mentor, and I was his assistant for a while (my gig was zoning and variances).

What sucks is that everyone *I've* voted "FOR" at the national level has disappointed.

If they arrived at the $$ honestly legally, morally, and via ethical means, then no I don't care. Why would I or anyone else? That could be us one day.

Like many, I voted AGAINST Hillary rather "for" Trump per se. And I've been pleasantly surprised. I know that as soon as I get enthusiastic about voting for him, he's going to disappoint. I seem to be cursed that way. LOL.

This is what the democraps and establishment republicans did against the coal industry.

They all bought lots of shares in the oil industry knowing that the Obamunist was going to outlaw/ban coal fired power plants which forced the power companies to convert their plants to natural gas instead. And who owns the natural gas industry? Yes, that's right! THE BIG OIL COMPANIES.

It had not a damned thing to do with greenhouse gases or global warming. Those are always a ruse to force these scams upon we the people as these slime bag politicians in both parties stuff their pockets with our money that we are forced to pay out for more expensive products because they are a direct result of the very laws that they had passed.
