Oh, Trump’s tax returns.
So far reflect he has been a loser his whole life. He has lost millions, if not billions of dollars. I give him credit, however. “Credit” a key word.
Overall, Trump screwed people and banks. The bank portion the most interesting.
Trump did it with the Atlantic City casinos. He will do it again if he reaches a point where he cannot meet the $300-400 million in bank obligations that come due in the next 3-4 years.
This time it will be European Banks. Like Deutsch and HSBC. When the American banks refused to loan any more money to Trump, he turned to Europe. Actually Putin and other despotic leaders. The government controls the banks in such countries.
Never complain when a bank loses money. They steal enough on their own. They cause pain to many persons every year. Think back to 2008. The banks caused the recession with their mortgage games. The people paid. Millions lost their homes in foreclosure.
You have to admire Trump in one respect. He screwed the banks big time, yet lived royally. In a huge gold apartment on Fifth Venue. His own private jet.
Pays no taxes! Impressive with all the money running through his business enterprises. A mere $750 in 2016 when he took office. Seven hundred fifty dollars again in 2017. In 10 of the 15 years preceding his rise to the Presidency, he paid no taxes.
His write offs will do him in. Where he took too much for a deduction or failed to be honest re the deductions claimed. Reflecting he failed to be honest in the preparation of his returns.
Trump will do jail time at some point. Unless…..My suggestion is he resign before January 20 so Pence can become President. Pence can then pardon Trump for all his sins.
I want to write a bit about an honest man. Yes, there were and still are some in this world.
On this day in 1941, he was close to batting .400. No one had since Bill Terry in 1930.
It was the last day of the season. A doubleheader. Williams had to have a real good day to reach .400. He had 6 hits in 8 at bats that day. Ended up with a .401 batting average.
He did what he had to do.
It was another September 28. This time in 1960. It was Williams’ final game. He was retiring.
He went out in a blaze of glory. At his last time at bat, he hit a home run. Number 521 for him.
He retired with a .344 batting average.
There is still more to the Ted Williams story. He took 2 years out of baseball in both World War II and the Korean War. He left baseball to fight for his country. Returned each time to play more ball.
Williams was a Marine combat aviator.
Interesting is Trump avoided military service by claiming he had bone spurs in his heel.
Williams was a fisherman. Loved the Keys. Bought a home on the water in Islamorada in 1960. Fished just about every day for 19 years.
Word is he sold his home when he had to wait for traffic to pass before crossing U.S. 1. Too many people for him.
Two stories. Two men. Both American. One a good guy, the other a bad man.
Enjoy your day!
