Lightbulb True Test for Trump

I think this where where the tire meets the asphalt - or the Dollar hits the palm (I was going to make an allusion about prostitution)

This is a serious, serious, serious - did I say it enough, serious test of wether Donald Trump is out for himself, or the American people.

Read it for yourself, and comment about wether anybody will have the guts to do something here.

To paraphrase Niman If it smells like a duck, quacks like a duck, tastes like a duck, defecates like a duck, and is defined as a brokerage account - is it a duck - or a brokerage account (I mean duck!!!)

Backing off on the tranqs..... petting puppies instead!

andy - can you give folks an idea of what the topics of the links you post are? Sometimes it's not obvious, and other times (like this one) we have no idea that the article is about. Thanks.

Tax his land, tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.
Tax his tractor, tax his mule,
Teach him taxes is the rule.

Tax his cow, tax his goat,
Tax his pants, tax his coat.
Tax his ties, tax his shirts,
Tax his work, tax his dirt.

Tax his chew, tax his smoke,
Teach him taxes are no joke.
Tax his car, tax his grass,
Tax the roads he must pass.

Tax his food, tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his sodas, tax his beers,
If he cries, tax his tears.

Tax his bills, tax his gas,
Tax his notes, tax his cash.
Tax him good and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.

If he hollers, tax him more,
Tax him until he’s good and sore.
Tax his coffin, tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.

Put these words upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom!"
And when he’s gone, we won’t relax,
We’ll still be after the inheritance tax.
