    Fascinating reading. It's a long and riveting article, especially the bit about how he held Atlantic city hostage as he went down in flames.

    A quick preview:

    And my personal favourite part:

    lol this poor woman.

    lol I totally missed that about poor Meredith being the multi-scapegoat. That's pretty funny. Yeah Trump's tax returns would be a hoot.

    Hilary recently called the parents of benghazi soldiers liars.
    When they said that she came to their sons funeral and she told them that they were going to arrest the people who drew that cartoon about muhammed, Hilary recently came out and said that they were remembering incorrectly.

    I guess proof that she lied about sending classified info through email confirmed by the FBI director and proof that she lied to the American people and the parents of soldiers about the real cause of the attack to hide her Libya failures just isn't quite as interesting as Trumps billionaire status is it @JosephDredd ?

    My favorite park is liberals thinking having some failed businesses means you're a failure as a businessman. It makes sense since the vast majority of liberals have never created a job in their lives, so they don't realize pretty much every single successful business owner in existence has had failures prior to reaching the success they have now.

    He had some failures but his successes far outweigh them. It's a testament to his tenacity and skill as a businessman that he didn't give up and he overcame adversity. It's why, despite some failures, he's a billionaire today instead of some drone making $42k at a mind-numbing desk job. Keep scraping the bottom of the barrel to criticize him, guys, it doesn't look desperate at all.

    What about a thread on clintons many shady business dealings.

    like selling nuclear material to the russians, or using distaster relief funds to line her freinds pockets.

    That sounds like a thread you should start. See if you can write it up without the crazy creeping in that so often seems to go along with anti-Hillary writings.

    I'm not even joking. @Big_Chief_Stove and @Kafir-kun have done a great job of providing legitimate sources for allegations against the Clinton Foundation. Write it up and start a real, non-crazy discussion.

    Or you can sit here whining about my thread on a factual and relevant article.

    What are his successes?

    Liberals don't have the heart or tenacity to start their own business. They have no idea how many times successful businessmen have failed.

    They don't have the ability to be successful anywhere but in a University where they can be protected from any opposing views that might upset them.

    One of the most successful and intelligent businessmen in the world was a liberal until 2015. Maybe you've heard of him... his name is Donald Trump.

    Good idea. Just getting last minute stuff together for a vacation so not a lot of time today.

    But the constant ignoring of Hilarys actions by everyone on the left while attacking things that are comparably insignificant gets annoying.

    Will try to put that together by tonite.

    I'm looking forward to reading it. No snark, no sarcasm, I'm legitimately interested. I think a lot of people are.

    Ha :D
    Donald has always been an independent and still is. Regardless of what he might have labeled himself for business purposes

    His ability to agree both with dems and Republicans on different issues is one of the reasons I like him.

    But in no way is he the stereotypical library that I was referring to.

    I stand by my statement that most of them don't have the fortitude to become a successful entrepreneur.

    Of course there are exceptions, but in general..

    He seems pretty damn successful to be such a failure.

    He is pretty rich regardless. Not saying he didn't have luck, like being born rich but he didn't really crash and burn and ended up as middle class

    Well, for one, he's the Republican candidate for president of the United States of America. That's pretty good, right?

    Are you defining successful in a way I don't know about? Both Trump and Hillary are insanely successful.

    What's really going on here?
