They are already out on a limb due to falling oil prices. Trump is a civil war among the billionaire class. Nice change of pace since they divide us via gender wars and race baiting routinely as class warfare on steroids.

Trump is not exactly my cup of tea. The Casino business is not exactly a bastion of good values and production. He is also part of the FIRE sector, allbiet the least bad of them being a builder. However his good parenting and no alcohol or drug position I find admirable. I also like the fact that his assets are in this country. Anyone more internationally minded with mobile assets should not be trusted any more than you can throw them.






Ah, ya sentimental sap..

This year its more like Old Yeller. Lots a yeller and Hydrophobia.
Trump's assets are in this country?

Forbes Welcome

Under “Our Hotels” on the Trump Hotel Collection website, it lists six domestic hotels and six international hotels. Is the problem Ford is building something in Latin America? Well, there are Trump hotels in Panama and Rio de Janeiro. The other hotels abroad are in Toronto, Doonbeg, Ireland, Vancouver, and Baku, Azerbaijan. (Toronto and Vancouver also have a Trump Tower.)
On the website for the Trump Real Estate Collection, nine international properties are listed, including two Trump Towers in India and one in Istanbul, another in Uruguay and another in the Philippines, as well as a Trump World in South Korea, among others.

far cry from what Michelle said.
I guess she could have if she was writing a dissertation on the history of the White House, but she wasn't.

Pretty soon she'll be back in a house built by illegals.

For your reading pleasure........PROOF: @MegynKelly Caught Lying About Judge Gonzalo Curiel's La Raza Membership to Bash @RealDonaldTrump - GotNews


Caught in yet another attempt to smear Donald Trump, Kelly claimed that Trump hating Judge Gonzalo Curiel wasn’t a member of La Raza.
“First of all, people are saying that this judge is a member of La Raza, the group that’s been protesting Donald Trump. He isn’t,” Kelly said. “He’s a member of a Hispanic lawyers’ association that has no partisan stripes whatsoever. They support Hispanic lawyers and judges. That’s it. So let’s be clear on that.”
But Kelly is wrong. It isn’t a nonpartisan association; it’s a pro-illegal immigration outfit that funds scholarships for illegal aliens! And yes, it also endorses candidates.
How do I know that? Well, it has a list of all the candidates they’ve endorsed ON THEIR WEBSITE. Does Kelly not have google?


One would think instead of moving a few houses away, the First Lady would move thousands of miles away........

By repeating it over and over (not just Michelle, but others as well) we are forced to repeat a piece of history that we played no part in. As I stated earlier, it's like re-living my mother passing away. I sit and watch it, knowing that there is nothing I can do to change the outcome.
The bold made me go

I am VERY empowered and inspired by the fact that I live in a country that once felt that all black people were inferior to other people based solely on skin color and it is inspirational that today, in 2016 we have a black family living in our nation's home so to speak and that those ideas of race based inferiority have diminished substantially.

As I mentioned in my previous comments, I am an astute history nerd with a particular focus on black history. I LOVE discussing slavery and indentured servitude and genealogy and even modern history in relation to housing discrimination and institutionalized racism of our criminal justice and education systems primary due to the FACT that by all accounts, our country and black Americans as a sub group of citizens have DRASTICALLY improved in all fronts.

That is something to be discussed and acknowledged and something that ALL people can feel empowered about. I find it odd as an American that you would rather ignore and not take inspiration from the enslaved persons in our past. I am greatly inspired by them and empowered by them. Due to their lives and example, I know that I can do anything.

I'm not biased against Michelle. I'm offended by all of her past speeches, and her past of trying to organize black people to be against whites. Just as I am equally offended by Trump's determination to keep that alive and poke at white people to try and make us believe that all other races are inferior to ours. What good does it serve? It isn't true, and none of us should feel that any one race is superior to another. We are all equal.
IMO just based on your comment above, you are biased of Michelle Obama. If you are offended at ALL of her past speeches, you are just biased. Everyone has biases and there is nothing wrong with admitting them. I am biased against illegal immigrants and I have a bias in general about men in particular (I am a female). I am not going to lie and say I don't because I do and my biases aren't huge, hate filled sorts of biases, I just have certain things I think about both groups and I'm not planning on changing my opinion.

On Michelle "organizing" black people against white people, how in the heck has she done that! That one is just fantasy IMO. I am black. I actually very much admire Michelle, much moreso than her husband BTW and I have never gotten the message from her that I need to be "against" white people.

Yes, I understand that you think Trump is the victim. Trump thinks he is the victim. Isn't that the definition of playing the victim card?

Nothing you wrote in your post demonstrates that Trump is the victim of an unfair Judge.

Same here. I am very inspired by her and grateful for her and Jill Biden's concern for military spouses in certain professions. Her efforts have made a difference in the lives of people like me. That people want to make her out of be some racist person is contrary to the work she is doing for others. They can have a universe of seats.

Michelle still has major guilt because she was never a slave.. she has a much better life that 99% of the population.. it must be her black guilt to have to mention the slaves. I have no white guilt.. I had to make my way and I didn't have much of a launching pad in this world to help me out.

Kelly lies and manipulates the truth.. fact is on the LaRAza web site is both LA RAZA.... they are very connected. Kelly doesn't even know what she is saying.. La Raza means THE RACE.. and they oppose deporting illegals.. they also spend millions of tax dollars protecting illegals who break the law, with phony id's, stealing id's. driving without a drivers license.. driving without insurance and those are the typical crimes they do. Hit and run, dui and driving under the influence of drugs. What do they have to lose.. nothing.. they are deported... come back and commit more crimes.millions to protect the rights of illegals.

Donald Trump .. they have put up on their website that Trump is a bigot..I get their drift.
