    • Heard on a pod-cast yesterday:   James Commey
    • Trump University? Trump Steaks?   Like not paying your contractors for the jobs they do, citing it wasn't good enough, which coming from Mr.Trump is just a cheapskate tactic to avoid paying. I bet he has more failure to pay dispute judgments against him then most businessmen.   That's the 2020 election in a nutshell.   We'll talk about some candidates, than Trump will say something stupid and our attention will go to him like we were fat kids and he was a hotcake.
    • Ok ok I know we all disagree about Trump and as much as I enjoy arguing about him it's getting to the point that every topic devolves into a Trump debate. This is about Dems 2020 candidates can we talk about that without bringing up Trump any further than whether or not a potential candidate can beat him?
    • "The Trump real estate company was a best a small - and not very good - player in luxary real estate holding. They were really only good at building in places where the ... maturiaty ... of the local economy was ... loose ... enough that they could get away with their quasi-legal sales, marketing, and construction strategies."   His business empire (and that is what it is) although centered on real estate holdings is much more accurately described as a marketing and franchising of the Trump brand name.    As for the his real estate holdings, except for certain allegations concerning discriminatory pracitces which most large real estate developers of his kind have had to deal with his practices and construction strategies along with his sales and marketing strategies have been overall quite successful and no more legally questionable then any other large developer of premium luxury properties.    His only true failures have been in the Atlantic City Gambling Casinos which he has owned. But then again he is not alone in suffering severe losses in that market as most of the Casinos in Atlantic City have proven to be unproftiable over the long run and their are quite a few of even of the largest players that have suffered bankruptcies in that market.
