If tRump wasn't born into a family of mega-millionaires, he'd be living in a trailer court and selling used cars.

And grateful for his food stamps.

California is the most successful state in the country despite the extra taxes and regulations. This just makes Republicans heads explode because it goes against everything they were taught to believe. I love it!

I can see why that would make you dislike Hillary (I can't stand her either), but why does that mean liking/approving of Trump ?

Because of its mid town, Tulsa is believed to be more hip than Oklahoma City, like 15th St., Utica Square areas.

Mountain Brook is nice. My point is this. Statistically, Alabama as a whole looks bad on paper. California has alot of issues too. Political party be darned.

That statement makes no sense. Does 'successful' mean the way the state tells me to open my wallet and drop my pants at the same time?

I worked for that money.

i don't think Trump is worried about that.

Are Democrats in Cali worried Trump could win the state now? That seems to be only reason to pass a law like that all of a sudden.

perhaps Democrats in CA should focus on making California a more sanitary place rather than Trump's tax returns.
one has to wonder how much extra time & money & lack of problems the legislatures and AG offices in various dark blue states have on their hands with their rushed through legislation crafted to address Trump, and lawsuits for any executive order applied.

I worked for that money too...but I don’t live in a bubble, I live in a civilized society. I want clean air, safe food, safe drinking water, security, road safety, good schools, social safety net.....good public infrastructure which doesn’t pay for itself. And I want this under control of government by the people because I don’t trust private corporations who follow the profit motive and take short cuts and are not democratically accountable to the people.

I'm not rich but came here over 50 yrs ago and learned good work habits and on how NOT to be a spendthrift. I would not go anywhere else. I have a rich spirit. And speak the truth.
