What I enjoy most is the cheerleading for each side.

Both trying to sell me poison.

If only ISIS would take them both out.

On my screen it's like ink blots.

Lots of people like to read your posts.


Hey buddy , sorry man i dunno what the deal is it shows up fine on my screen? And even though a lot of my conservative bretheren are Trump supporters and I dont agree lol Still love you guys....

Just a bump to WhyAmIHere's post..The dark blue of your text to the left seems to meld with the black on my monitor. It requires some squinting. I only got thrown a little cuz you recently changed your avatar image which I previously used to recognize you. My visual memory has you filed again with the new image, but for the average joe, you might change the text of your handle.

One of his golf courses.

Ahh I see...A 20k life size painting of Trump at one of his golf courses...I am trying hard to imagine the explanation of how that helps veterans or feeds hungry children...

To me, if funds that are raised for charity are spent on charity there is nothing illegal. He is not paying off his mortgage with the go fund me account. That would be fraud.

To you, it's legal? Well, to the IRS and the laws of this country, it's illegal for the officer of a charity to use their charity funds for the purchase of an item for themselves. It doesn't matter if the money goes to another charity or not. It's stealing the donor's money!

When challenged by the auctioneer, Melania doubled her bid to $20,000. That sum was paid by the Foundation, according to the Post. The Trumps also used Foundation funds to buy a $12,000 helmet signed by Tim Tebow.

Both of those actions are prohibited by IRS rules, which forbid officers of charities (such as the Trumps) from using charity funds to buy items for their own benefit, according to The Hill.

Trump claimed that in the past 5 years, he gave $102 million to charity, which can be deducted on his taxes, as we all know. Problem is, these "generous contributions" came from the Trump Foundation... Other people's money.

The largest items on the list were not cash gifts but land-conservation agreements to forgo development rights on property Trump owns.

Trump's campaign also counted a parcel of land that he'd given to New York state - although that was in 2006, not within the past five years.

Some beneficiaries on the list are not charities at all: They included clients, other businesses and tennis superstar Serena Williams.

When asked about The Post's analysis, a top Trump aide acknowledged that none of the gifts had come in cash from the billionaire himself.

I am not playing games which is why I prefaced it with not sure how much you may give to chaity

An estate sale is not a 'charity'. That is what I was getting at. If you use foundation money that goes to another charity where is the issue?

Your example would be wrong. You are taking money from a charity/foundation and using it to pay a private person that would not benefit anyone else but the estate.

If this was the case I would be pissed....

Oh ... did I forget to mention, the proceeds from the estate sale all go to the county orphanage ... you know, after reasonable administration costs are deducted.

See what I did there? I kept moving the goal posts and spinning my responses ... just as you are doing in defense of Trump.

Where's the hat, I mean, helmet?

Trumps taxes were audited no? IRS audits look for nefarious financial activities no?

Did the IRS find anything?

Aren't we talking about the Trump Foundation???

And as far as Trump's taxes ... how would we know???

Does Trump own the Trump foundation? Is Trump ultimately responsible for the the record keeping of the Trump foundation for tax purposes?

I don't know much but I was under the impression this was the case.

I was also under the impression Trump was under audit.

It is his foundation. Saying he gave it is not incorrect. The Clinton say that they saved lives but it was not them it was their foundation. Even Obama said it.

Why one way and not for both? It must be the hate....

The issue is...49.2% of American's receive a monthly check.

Theses same people know the Gravy Train will end with Trump.

Their candidate ran a criminal enterprise from the State Dept.

Arrest him, lock him up, he's a criminal...

Translated means: Oh crap, there goes my free money.

Funny how many of those Americans receiving checks are seniors collecting SS, government pensions, veterans disability and retirement checks. People who technically, have actually put in their fair share of blood, sweat, and tears. The actual number of "useless welfare leeches" is pretty damned small.

Is Trump a criminal? The various lawsuits and investigations against him will determine that, not I. Is Trump a tap dancing BS artist with some seriously questionable and shady personal and business connections, as well as an overall questionable person? You bet.

Translated means: "I, who is not currently privy to said free money, will use facts and critical thinking instead to determine the heart of the matter." And the heart of this matter is Trump and his windbag mouth writing checks his fat ass can't seem to, or down right refuses, to cash.
