    That's fair enough

    I think at this point the only way to stop this is war and that could trigger a war with China and perhaps start WW III. No thanks.

    To be fair, you can have massive tax losses without business failings. I don't know the specific code and how it impacts casino's, hotels and golf resorts.

    But for car washes and auto shops, as an example, you can pretty much write off everything but the land the first year you put it into operation, and then carry that forward or backward. I think he would have done better just to release the schedules without the attachments.

    He could say, and rightfully so, "those are partnerships and LLC's, and it is not for me to disclose that information without consent of my partners." That would be legitimate.

    He should have just put out his 1040, schedules A, B, C, D, and E, with no supporting schedules, and called it a day.

    Better yet, he should have put everything into trust and let his kids run it while he was POTUS.

    Certainly you can have losses without businesses failing, but the reported trigger for the refund had to do with failed businesses

    He has had a lot of failed businesses , yet the "Trump brand" is based upon him being a billionaire. In some bankruptcy hearing or another, Trump stated that the "brand" alone had a value of 3 billion dollars.

    Now we know that is just part of his inflation of his finances, but his brand is important to him. He does make money just by licensing that name to products and projects

    Examination of his taxes and really forensically understanding his finances would lead to a loss of luster on that brand. People outside of New Jersey are just now forgetting many of his business failures and for him, that is jus the position he wants to be in upon exiting the White House.

    You think Biden did well making 7-10 million dollars between himself and his wife after the White House? Trump is thinking that he and his entire family are going to rake in 10 times that in easy money.

    Oh and if anyone thinks that he isn't running his own company while in the white house, they are just nuts

    Trump was doing a rally in Florida and was trying to tell people that Biden's statement about phasing out oil was the "worst mistake in presidential debate history"

    Uh no, Trumps performance in the first debate and refusal to participate in the second debate are the worst,

    Yes Biden made a statement that his campaign is probably losing sleep over, but Trump lost the first debate just by being the crazy uncle, got clobbered in the ratings on the town hall that replaced the second debate and didn't gain ground on the third debate, except thru a mistake by Biden.

    and more people have already advance voted in some states than voted for Trump in the 2016 election

    It's three states.

    Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania

    Trump wins those, he more than likely wins the Presidency. But, he needs all three.

    I think Florida and Pennsylvania he's got a good shot at. Michigan, not so much, unless he really makes in roads in the black vote.

    538 shows one path for him to win without Michigan but its a squeaker. He would need Penn and Ohio and Florida and North Carolina. There is no path without Florida.

    but since he lost so many votes after the first debate, he is slowly creeping back up. He owes Welker a big apology ( fat chance of that)


    One thing I find amusing Trump has cast his vote for himself in Florida. He claims Maralago as his address. Maralago is NOT a legal residence, It is a business

    in 1993 Trump wanted Palm Beach to give him certain tax breaks for the property which required him to agree to not use the property as a residence


    Hello voter fraud. I wonder if his vote will be rejected.

    I looked it up because there is no way that could be said as anything but a joke, right? NOPE she said it. In her defense, at least she didn't delete it.

    For those who do not know, Kendrick is an attorney and is a member of the Georgia House. She is the legislator who introduced a bill as a counter to an abortion bill that she opposed ( that bill was later declared unconstitutional) but it banned vasectomies and required men to get permission from their significant other before getting a prescription for viagra. It got a lot of attention at the time.

    I guess I could see her unfamiliarity with the term coyotes, but damn....GOOGLE girl. This is the problem with twitter. You can instantaneously blurt something stupid that the world hears and shares. Gosh I long for the days when you could just be stupid in private
