    Either that or he's lying to voters.

    In Ossining, N.Y., home to a Trump National Golf Club, town officials say that a tax break being sought by the company would cost their coffers more than $200,000 a year.

    In seeking the reduction, Trump’s attorneys have claimed that the club is worth far less than the roughly $15 million value assessed by the city.

    Trump’s attorneys have filed papers with the state claiming that the “full market value” of the property is $1.4 million. The same golf course appears on Trump’s new financial disclosure form released this week as part of his presidential campaign — valued by him at more than $50 million.

    Trump attorney Alan Garten did not respond to questions about the discrepancy.​

    As Trump himself pointed out, he can shoot someone and his supporters will not care. Such is the power of the Cult of Personality.

    That depends on your perspective. If you're Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, or any other humongous defense contractor then Hillary is much better than Trump or anyone else.

    not true.....you've obviously missed Trump's statements about increasing spending to rebuild the military. There are YUUUUUGE profits to be be made by defense contractors

    I don't know, I imagine some of defense contractors had a serious hard-on after Trump immediately called the downed EgyptAir flight an act of terrorism without any actual proof.

    Hillary's policies can kill 1000's/displace millions and her supporters don't care

    Indeed, and that is incorrect policy. Increased defense spending is the last thing we need. However, Ronald Reagan also increased spending to rebuild the military but he didn't start wars or intervene in every rat**** Middle East **** hole.

    I didn't say Hilary was better. Both of them are going to continue the endless wars. Both of them are going to keep rigging the system in favor of themselves. Both of them are completely undeserving of the presidency. And yet people are going to vote for them, even knowing that. It's a wonder I have any sympathy left for my fellow man.

    but unlike Reagan, Trump has said he'd bomb the sh*t out ISIS so those defense contractors can also expect YUUUUUGE reorders to restock on an ongoing basis

    (at least you're right about increased defense spending being the last thing we need)

    I didn't realize Hillary made policy. Can you link to some of Hillary's policies that have killed and displaced millions?

    Really? That's all you have? At least it's exactly what I expected.

    Isn't the Republican mantra to expand the military? For what? To make things more peaceful? How many of the Republican candidates openly said "We will bomb them"?

    Said vs actions. A democrat is the one bombing the M-E currently , please overlook the fact Hillary voted for the initial conflict and has had no problem supporting both Libya and Syria.

    Are you saying that Trump will reform the tax system to help all Americans?

    Actually, all you're saying is that Trump isn't a traditional politician because he's sidestepped tax laws - just not in ways like how numerous "pols" in the past had, regardless of which political party's banner of preference they wave? Wouldn't that make Trump less of a less traditional "pol" than what you're thinking he is?

    I'm not overlooking crap. I just think it is freakin' hysterical how you guys jump around with your hands in the air screaming about what one person does, especially when the other side is doing it even more. This has been pointed out to you on numerous occasions with all your NAFTA/TPP posts, that it was very heavily a Republican vote, but you still call it a Democrat thing.
