Exactly. It is a common knowledge (except to rightwing nut jobs) that 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants enrich the society they inhabit which more than makes up for any difficulties the 1st generation might have.

I've never given a shit about any politician's tax returns, that's an honest statement. What I would like to see is a complete breakdown of the Clinton's charities. I think the pedaling of influence would be quite easy to prove.

What I find funny about Trumps tax returns is if they prove he's a 10-billionaire then you're pissed at him. If the tax returns show he's NOT a billionaire then you pissed at him...

It's a fucking joke. The year that did get leaked showed he paid more in taxes than the New York Times

Yes I believe it, that's why I fucking wrote it. Put the statement back into the context it was written, and maybe you'll understand it.

That's the point I've made, the world is that simple. To go think you can influence the planet's temperature is what is complicated. Where did I say not to be environmentally conscious? That's where you believers fail; you think people who don't believe in anthropocentric global warming care about their environment. I own 40+ acres of forest adjoining the Shenandoah National Park, how about you? You own a 400+ HP economy-class M3, how the hell is that environmentally conscious? Shaaaatuuuppp.

I own 57+ acres. So that makes my opinion 17+ acres more valid than yours!

Good game, thanks for playing! What do I win? /s

This thread is hilarious, and you are the crown price of hilarity!

LOL, right, okay, Mr. Gore

And a 4.2L V8 S4... Did you get the timing case leak fixed, or do you just drip fucking engine oil all over the forest of Orange County?

I sold that ticking time bomb before it became a $13k headache.

Edit: I burned enough oil to warm the planet 0.0001

Wow, what a skewed view of things. Trump was born into money and got started with a 7 figure loan from his daddy. Obama was born poor, had no dad, and worked his way up from nothing to potus. My god put aside the bias and think about what you are saying...

Trump took his (alleged) 7 figure loan, and turned it into 9 figures.

Obama wasn't born poor. He did have a dad. He also had grandparents who footed the bill for at least his schooling at fancy private schools in Hawaii when his mother divorced his second dad and returned to the US. (He then threw said grandparents under the bus as racists, in his book...). Not sure who paid the dues for his drug-soaked "Choom Gang?"

Obama then somehow went to Columbia and Harvard, although won't say nor provide records to show who paid for it.

He absolutely did not "work his way up from nothing;" he was given jobs at fancy law firms and the University of Chicago, which he didn't earn whatsoever. Having family friends like Frederick Marshall and Bill Ayers tends to get you those kind of connections.

THAT'S what I'm saying.

Do you really believe what you wrote?

Uhhh... no. There isn't a "rags to riches" story in either case - you are the one who made up the story about Obama.

Never made up a story. Dude lived in a clay hut when he was a child. Compared to Trump, who was gifted a successful real estate business at age 30, it certainly is a rags to riches story. In the grand scheme of things, not so much, but to insinuate he did so well in school because of connections and not because he was a brilliant student is insulting.

Is it possible you're confusing Obama's brother from another mother in Kenya with Barack Hussien?

You speak about Trump with venom and hate for him because he took some modest family successes and turned them into considerably more?

Isnt that what family is all about?

Each generation stands on the back of the previous?

I honestly have never read about Obama living in a clay hut - do you have a link?

We wouldn't know if Obama was gifted, or simply another Affirmative Action student, as he's never released his transcripts. (Note: I'm not saying grades are a measure of intelligence, etc. - I don't have any reason to think he's not a bright guy). But there's no denying he had very influential connections his entire life.

My problem with Obama is and always has been that he's never created anything and all he has sought to do is tear down existing order/peace

He's never had a job in the private sector

He's never started or run a business

When you throw in his close, formative and influential connections to people like Frank Marshall Davis (Communist Party USA),

Ogletree

West

Rev Wright

Terrorists like Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohn and others

With close associations like the above is anyone surprised by the radical leftism/socialism/communism we saw and continue to see from Obama?

Wtf? Where do you see venom and hate? I simply stated that Trump was gifted a multi-million dollar biz at age 30 by his father, so comparing him to Obama in terms of silver spoons is ridiculous. Quit being so defensive just cause you voted for the guy.

I was trying to find a source for that clay hut he lived in, but I found something more interesting to me

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama

"Obama's parents met in 1960 in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii at Manoa"

Talk about people linking Trump to Russians.
