SERIAL KILLERS VS. SERIAL LIARS
Oblivious to anyone's feelings but their own
Oblivious to human suffering
Thrives on media attention
A year or so ago I started the website http://www.conmantrump.org showing how Donald Trump was a total con man who only ran for President in order to make money. This was no surprise to anyone who followed Trump's sleazy career through the years. A profile of Trump in a 20-year-old New Yorker piece described him as "an existence unmolested by the rumbling of a soul."
But I soon realized that keeping the website up to date would be a full time job. There's always something! As I write this TODAY Trump is suing everyone from Congress to Deutsche Bank to prevent his finances being revealed to anyone. Hmmm. Why do you suppose that is? We already know that his inept management bankrupted his company 4 times, that U.S. banks wouldn't touch him, and that he had to be bailed out by someone. Russia? Saudia Arabia?
As for being a multi-billionaire...factor in the money he owes and the question is, is he even solvent?
The scary thing is that 40% or so of Americans and 80+% of Republicans support this serial liar, lifelong criminal. The only thing he's great at is being a con man...and nobody has ever done it better.
Trump, like just about every serial killer profiled on the Justice Channel, cares not at all about human life...unless that human happens to be named Donald J. Trump. What's more, he cares not at all about the fate of this planet one second after he leaves the Earth.
I've made a little study of these so-called charities. I've found that many if not most of them exist only to exist. They aren't formed in order to raise money for their stated cause (although some small portion of the money may eventually reach veterans, children, people with diseases...). They are formed as businesses to do business in the fundraising industry. The employees get paid, the management gets paid well, and the executives do very well. For every $10 contribution they get, maybe $6 goes to pay the salaries of the workers and another $2 goes toward operating costs. As long as they don't make a corporate profit they can legally call themselves "non-profit organizations." Even if the CEO is getting paid a seven-figure salary. LUKE W.
Handicap Parking Spots...
...are a genuine convenience for people who genuinely have difficulty getting in and out of their car and getting around with their cane or walker. But it occurred to me today that I see more people park in those spots WITHOUT a handicap notification than I see people WITH a notification who are genuinely handicapped.
Most typically, a car will pull into a handicap spot, the driver (ALWAYS a male) hangs the handicap notification on his mirror, and gets out of his car CLEARLY with no hint of a handicap. I used to assume that they were simply using their handicapped relative's car...but why hang the handicap notification at all? Getting one of those notifications (I have no clue how I would go about it) is just their way of scamming society and not having to walk 20 extra steps each time they park somewhere.
Who's the racist?
Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia is in hot water due to a "racist" photo that appeared on his page in a 1984 college yearbook. The photo showed a man in black face having a drink with a ku klux klan member. The message seemed to be "can't we all just get along?" That's racist? Meanwhile, throughout his political career, Governor Northam has been an unflinching champion of equal rights FOR ALL.
