The scots are bunch of pansy's.
Even your independence referrendum was so that you could try to become moronic communists.
Thank goodness my ancestors got out of that dung heap when they did.

But the liberal media complex told me he became president so he could advance his business interests.

Yeah, a lot of that video is from that Documentary actually. But you're right, it's his hypocritical and arrogant way he approaches those issues which make it worse. Not only does he do these things but then tries to sell himself as some kind of hero for them which pisses people off so much.
It's like having someone sh*t on your birthday cake and get away with it. Which alone is bad enough. But then having them try and convince you to eat that cake with a smile on your face because they want to somehow take credit for something good they've done for you.
It's insult on top of injury.
The enthusiasm Spence, Henderson and others have for the project doesn't appear to match the reality of what's on the ground. According to planning documents, public accounts and his own statements,
Trump promised to invest $1.5 billion in the project. He has spent $100 million. He vowed 6,000 jobs. There are 150. Two golf courses were promised. There's one.
Instead of a 450-room luxury hotel and hundreds of time-share apartments that Trump pledged to build, there is a 16-room boutique hotel and a small clubhouse with a restaurant and shop that sells Trump whisky, leather hip flasks and various golf paraphernalia. Financial accounts show the resort lost over $1 million last year.

Hate Hate Hate Hate .... I see we have all the usual players here. A few are missing but I am sure they will pop in soon to call Trump a turd or say he is such a crummy businessman he is losing money. Right?

I didn’t serve in the military.
On the other hand, my son just left the military after 11 yrs of service. When he left, he was an instructor who was teaching the most failed class in his field. Although he originally planned on making it his career, he left the service because he didn’t want to be the cannon fodder for the lunatic currently occupying the White House and I’m damn glad he did.

I also don't take issue if anyone else takes issue with them for legitimate reasons either. I don't consider them to be Hero's of our military either. But I don't recall them faking an injury to avoid the Draft or get out of serving. If they did then I'd be saying the same about them.
I'm not the one here making excuses for anyone. I'm here wondering why so many of you are when it comes to Trump when it really only makes you look foolish for doing so. Because it's not just a single thing. It's compounded by multiple things he's said and done that makes it what it is.
Summer 1968 - Political and family influence keeps Clinton out of the draft. Robert Corrado -- the only surviving Hot Springs draft board member from that period -- concluded that Clinton's draft statement (the long delays) was the result of "some form of preferential treatment." According to the Times, "Corrado recalled that the chairman of the three-man draft panel ... once held back Clinton's file with the explanation that 'we've got to give him time to go to Oxford,' where the semester began in the fall of 1968.
