    Trump has been criticized for Trump University and Hillary has slammed for-profit schools as "predatory".
    Except, once again, here comes those darn pesky facts messing up Hillary's version of the truth.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/hillary-blasts-profit-colleges-bill-took-millions-one-n636786

    "....And some two dozen former and current students at Laureate's flagship school in the U.S. -- an online, for-profit school called Walden University -- told NBC News they feel victimized by the kind of practices Clinton has promised to fight. A 2015 study found Walden students had compiled the second-highest debt load of any school in the U.S."........

    Ok quietwolf - let's hear your rant and name calling about this Democratic Senator's daughter:
    http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2016-08-24/the-senator-s-daughter-who-raised-prices-on-anti-allergy-epipen

    ".........If lawmakers follow the usual script, Bresch could get called up to Capitol Hill next month to explain her company’s justification for raising the price on the life-saving allergy shot. But that could be awkward, since she’s the daughter of Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
    While Bresch’s family ties may mute the ire of some lawmakers, others are already asking the company about taxpayers having to foot the bill for these price increases -- particularly after Bresch and the company successfully pushed legislation to encourage use of the EpiPen in schools nationwide"...........

    Hey troll, you are just like the frog that will stay in the pot of water as the water is slowly brought to a boil and it is cooked. Your hate is unbelievable.

    What was done to you personally that has caused you to hate a group of people so much? Please don't say it's about your love for the abused and downtrodden, with all of the hate you show there can't be much love in you.

    I think you should have a new name, like frog, to describe your total lack of understanding of what is happening all around you.

    quietwolf must be losing what little sanity she had. Her arguments are flat out wrong.
    Still - it's all very entertaining.
    Trump's campaign disavowed the David Duke robocalls.
    Hillary kissed Senator Robert Byrd, known KKK member, congratulated him for his work.
    Snopes says true: http://www.snopes.com/clinton-byrd-photo-klan/
    David Duke is not part of the KKK although he is involved with other white supremacy groups.

    “Mr. Trump has continued to denounce David Duke and any group or individual associated with a message of hate,” the Trump campaign told Politico."
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/08/29/trump-campaign-disavows-robocall-by-david-duke.html

    Once again we see the hate-filled liberal, trying to accuse one party of something her own party has done for years and years.
    Obviously, she doesn't care is Democrats are racist or have a stated goal of keeping minorities down while claiming to help them.


    Hillary's still out of sight. As much as I don't like her I wouldn't wish ill health on her.

    This is another Democrat, idolized by some on this forum, who has stated the same things Trump has stated. They commended the liberal and condemned the conservative. 

    Clearly demonstrates the goal is not to improve America but to use public opinion to gain power and control. 

    Kudos to quietwolf for her support of corruption, deception, and what's wrong in America.

    Corruption did you say? CORRUPTION?

     

    I'll give you corruption supreme by Don The Con Trump, KingOf The Scammers. He is also your typical Con/Repub Hypocritical Low-Down Hyena.

     

    Trump is going to make China Great Again (as well as Russia):


    Nearly, if not all, of his new furnishings and whatnots at his Trump Hotel are made where? Not the USA. Hypocritical Trump ships all his jobs overseas and uses foreign workers in the U.S., whenever he can.

     

    All the new stuff in his deplorable hotel is made in CHINA!

     

    Not to worry, this hotel will probably go bankrupt just like about everything else Trump The Chump touches.

     

    How many small businesses did Corrupt Republican Trump screw over this time in building this monumental piece of garbage?

    Hey, dipstick - trying finding stuff made in America that can supply a hotel or large project. We have run manufacturing out of the country. That's the reason there are 90+ million people with no jobs.
    Thanks to the party you support.

    You really need to stop playing the fool.

    More Actual Corruption!

     

     

    The idea that we need a “successful businessman” as a President at all is very concerning. Businessmen only care about one thing – their profits, and increasing those profits. A nation-state is not a business, nor should it be run like one. The leader of a nation-state must care for the well-being of his people and balancing complex international relationships with other nation-states, concerns that don’t have anything to do with the single-minded obsession with profit.

     

    And of course, Trump is not a good businessman. He started out with a “small loan” of just a million dollars after being handed all the opportunities a straight white male needs to make it in America. He then lied, cheated and extorted his way to the top, and still managed to rack up four bankruptcies and over 3500 lawsuits. He is nothing but a con-man, and he will run our country into the ground just like he’s done his businesses.

     

     

     

    America is not one of Trump's failed hotels. Let's keep America Great as President Obama has made it.

    This is your corrupt candidate's legacy while you whine about Trump having 5 businesses out of over 500 go bankrupt.

    BRAIN TRANSPLANT

     

    A family member lay gravely ill, the relatives gathered in the waiting room. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

     

    "I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces. "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, very risky, but it is the only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain."

     

    The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news.

     

    After a time, someone asked, "How much will a brain cost?

     

    The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a Democrat's brain; $200 for a Republican's brain." 

     

    The moment turned awkward. Some of the Democrats actually had to try not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the Republicans. A man unable to control his curiosity, finally blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the Democrat's brain so much more than a Republican's brain?"

     

    The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to price the Republicans' brains a lot lower because they're used."

    In all fairness he shouldn't be putting stipulations on that as the tax return submittal is independent of any conditions. All candidates are required to do so regardless of circumstances or what other candidates are doing. Just becomes his opponent doesn't want to be transparent doesn't allow him not to be.

    October 3, 2016 1:24:43 PM PDT

    A careful review of Eric Trump’s charity revealed the eponymous foundation spent large sums of money at fundraising events on Donald Trump’s golf courses—$881,779in total. In 2013, $100,000 went directly to Donald Trump himself. He received a further $88,000 in 2014.

     

    “There’s nothing necessarily wrong with contracting with businesses you own,” says Law Professor Philip Hackney. An ethical problem emerges, however, when such a “charitable” organization touts a 95 to 100 percent donation ratio, as The Eric Trump Foundation does.  “There’s a question—maybe not of the legality, but of the ethics of it,” Hackney tells The Daily Beast.


    The foundation does not disclose these expenditures to donors. The Who We Fund portion of the ETF’s official website simply lists the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a beneficiary, suggesting donors to the foundation are under the false impression that they’re directly funding the hospital.

    FACT ONE – There Are Major Overlaps Between Clinton’s Campaign Donors And Her Foundation Donors, Raising Ethical Red Flags:

    According To The Washington Post, Nearly Half Of The Major Donors To Ready For Hillary And Nearly Half Of Her 2008 Campaign Bundlers Have Given At Least $10,000 To The Foundation.

    The Foundation “Has Given Contributors Entree, Outside The Traditional Political Arena, To A Possible President.”

    The Washington Post’s Review Of The Foundation’s Seven Biggest Donors Found “That There Is Strong Overlap Between The Family’s Political Base And The Foundation,” And That A Substantial Number Of Its Donors Are Based Outside Of The U.S.

    The Wall Street Journal Headline: “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties”

    “Among recent secretaries of state, Hillary Clinton was one of the most aggressive global cheerleaders for American companies, pushing governments to sign deals and change policies to the advantage of corporate giants such as General Electric Co., Exxon Mobil Corp., Microsoft Corp. and Boeing Co.”

    “At The Same Time, Those Companies Were Among The Many That Gave To The Clinton Family’s Global Foundation."

    “At Least 60 Companies That Lobbied The State Department During Her Tenure Donated A Total Of More Than $26 Million To The Clinton Foundation."

    “At Least 44 Of Those 60 Companies Also Participated In Philanthropic Projects Valued At $3.2 Billion That Were Set Up Though A Wing Of The Foundation Called The Clinton Global Initiative…”

    I know some of you don't like the "M" word, but we now have more proof of Hillary's Marxist agenda:

    Via The Mises Institute,

    “Hillary Clinton Proposes 65% Top Rate for Estate Tax” blared a headline in The Wall Street Journal. Since the current top statutory tax rate on estates is 40 percent, Clinton’s proposal is nothing if not audacious. I can’t recall Barack Obama, our most left-leaning president, ever calling for a 65 percent increase in tax rates for the rich.

    Going after inheritances and estates is textbook Marxism. That is not an exaggeration. The third plank in Karl Marx’s 10-point platform for achieving socialism through democratic means — see his 1848 textbook to communism, The Communist Manifesto — was the abolition of inheritances. To repeat: it was point three in Marx’s 10-point plan.

    Hurricane Matthew to Cause Catastrophic Loss of Life in Haiti

    The Category 4 Hurricane set to devastate Haiti with 145MPH winds, 40 inches of rain, and 12 foot storm surge looks to be an unprecedented human tragedy with the country failing to recover after the 2010 earthquake with many in Haiti faulting the State Department, Clinton Foundation.Two weeks ago the former Senate President of Haiti Bernard Sansaricq told a crowd of Donald Trump supporters that the Clinton Foundation stole "billions" from the Haiti relief fund following the tragic earthquake that left some 316,000 people dead due to the cascade of weakly supported structures and an outbreak of cholera.

    The Clinton Foundation has been much maligned in the years that have followed for alleged malfeasance in their relief work following the 2010 natural disaster as Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State at the time and decided to contract with the Foundation, despite the obvious conflict of interest, to provide for the relief effort.

    The has always been an inheritance tax and estate tax. You get taxed on your IRA when you start to withdraw money from it and you get taxed on your pensions when you start drawing retirement from them. You even get taxed on your unemployment earnings. Taxes have always gone up and down, doesn't mean we are turning into a Marxist nation. Even our own states are inconsistent on taxes and how they are collected, levied and rates set. Some states don't even have an income tax. Every single govt. on earth utilizes taxes, some higher than others some more efficiently than others. As I said before, I can make a better case for religion being a Marxist or Communist based institution. If for no other reason the skip out on paying taxes altogether so by your definition I could label then legal anarchists.

    How can Donald Trump talk his way out of this one?

     

    Trump’s company did business with an Iranian bank that has been linked to terrorist groups, according to a report from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

     

     Public records obtained by the ICIJ show the Trump Organization rented Bank Melli several floors of New York office space from 1998 to 2003. The bank remained a tenant of Trump’s for years after the U.S. Treasury Department declared it to be controlled by the Iranian government in 1999.

    You are so foolish. IRAs and pensions are taxed because that money has been tax-deferred income for many years, not because the gov't is taxing your inheritance and estate.
