I dunno, I woke up this morning to a board full of Alice threads. Deciding that wasn’t for me I checked into a reasonable sounding thread, started by Spartan only to find that Alice had also spam fucked that out of existence.
Ok in seriousness. The golf? You want to get into Obama’s vacations? Many did. I don’t agree with it, I’m just stating facts. Presidents are still allowed to do stuff they like to do. Maybe you should make an anti golf law or something.
As for Trump’s taxes…. if he did anything illegal I hope they punish him to the fullest extent of the law. I’m serious.
Now, short of that, I’m not going to criticize people if they follow the laws. Make no mistake, Hillary, Joe, Obama…. they pay exactly how much taxes they feel like paying like any good progressive they gotta pay their fair share. This is nothing but a show. Especially if you are a career, life long public official.
You think they aren’t figuring out how to get a kickback somewhere to pay that tax bill? They use this tax stuff on you guys because they understand that you don’t understand that people like this move money here and there and can manipulate their tax situation in any way they like. You don’t know it because you’re a regular person. Regular people earn wages and have to pay taxes on their wages. People like these guys, move money around and have their charity pay for their daughters wedding. Don’t act dumber than you are Fire.
First, this is not a flame. Just an observation. I think you’re not very informed on drugs and hookers. (Not a bad thing, btw.)
On the hookers, a few of my co-workers got caught up in the sting with the Mayflower Madam. (Our D.C. studio shared a parking lot with ABC News, and was next to the Mayflower Hotel.) Even if you’re in a setting like that, “escorts” still didn’t really go much beyond $5K – $10k, so you would really have to try hard, and still wouldn’t sound much on high-end call girls. Tbh, I doubt that importing a soviet catalogue bride didn’t even get very pricey.
On the drug end, Keith Richards used to, and probably still does buy his heroin by the kilo. Again, you’re not really reaching mass spending. You could probably get a direct cartel connection for a million or two per year. Keith Richards even owns his own Jet. Not the little kind. Back when we had mutual connections, he owned a 747.
I seriously doubt that Hunter has more cash / assets than Keith.
I enjoy your true posts where you express insight. We all don’t have to believe in the same ideals. Just please, go easy on the drug references, in linking to celebrities / politicians. They are not immune to the trappings of wealth, and drugs and women come with that package. Both, though, are still signs of someone needing help, and he has sought treatment.
I don’t mind if people to in my gut drug references, much like I rip on OT about LSD. 😎 We all know none of those comments are true, so they are more done with a sense of joking / getting underneath each other’s skin.
I pick on Chron a bit, but I know he mostly posts for shock Value / humour. I’ve seen him skip a few times. I could be wrong, but I’d bet he’d probably a completely different person in RL. This is also why I sometimes blow shit back in his direction. I’m fairly certain most is in jest.
I mean, for the most part, this is an off-topic segment of a Bucs BBS. It’s not like we’re submitting this content for peer review, prior to publication in a journal. Is just a way to kill time and have some fun while the other turns to shit around us. (Just like Chron, I’m sure you and Spartan are the same way, in the reference to just maintaining a persona for the board. (I am somewhat concerned about OT, though. I really hope he doesn’t really buy into all of that Q stuff he posts.)
That said, I’d lay even money that everyone who submits to PC threads, wood probably all be capable of having a beer or two together, and not experience any static from each other. It would probably actually be fun.
A million years ago, SR would hold some viewing parties at Hard Rock. I went to one. It was nice to place some faces to the avatar. From the oriole that were also there that one day, everyone got along fine. It was a fun outing, and even people that never agreed on board postings all got along well at the Hard Rock.
TLDR: IMHO, most everything is fair game in the PC threads. Just try to understand that people in the public spotlight, on both sides of the aisle, may face temptations and make done dumb decisions. I’ve never known an addict that really ever woke up looking forward to a day of drug use. These people are hurting and some do try to climb out of the abyss that they’ve fallen into.
At any rate, just my opinion.
I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.
Ok in seriousness. The golf? You want to get into Obama’s vacations? Many did. I don’t agree with it, I’m just stating facts. Presidents are still allowed to do stuff they like to do.
True that Obama enjoys golf. So do I, although I’m very bad at it.
The one truth, though, is that Trump golfed more in four years than Obama did in eight.
Again, not a big deal for me. Everyone deserves some time where they can shed the daily burdens and just enjoy themselves. I imagine it’s very cathartic when you are tasked with probably one of the most stressful duties on the planet. I do think he should’ve gone richer for some of his outings, though. D.C. has a vast number of very good and exclusive clubs.
I just wish he would’ve played in some courses he didn’t own. (Plus, a lot of Republicans in those clubs. Avenel, once built, had an initial fee of $700,000. In version it’s probably five times that now. (Avenel was built, in part, due to places like Congressional and Chevy Chase not bringing in new members. (Also, there was still a bit of land left to develop in Potomac.) In Congressional, where’s my ex’es uncle belongs, he obtained Clubhouse tix for me to hit the 2011 US Open, someone has to die in order to permit an new member; however, those memberships are handed down from one generation to the next.
I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.
“Mr Trump first tweeted about Mr Obama playing golf on 15 August 2011, when he wrote: “@BarackObama played golf yesterday. Now he heads to a 10 day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. Nice work ethic.””
In one example from 2013, Mr Trump criticised Mr Obama, tweeting: “PresObama is not busy talking to Congress about Syria..he is playing golf…go figure.”
And during the congressional gridlock in 2012, Mr Trump wrote: “Obama should play golf with Republicans & opponents rather than his small group of friends. That way maybe the terrible gridlock would end.”
In a comment from January 2015, he added of Obama: “He may play more golf than any human being in America, and I’m not sure that’s good for the President.”
During a speech in 2016, Mr Trump criticised Mr Obama signing executive orders, commenting: “Everything’s executive order because he doesn’t have enough time because he’s playing so much golf.
“He doesn’t have enough time to convince Congress to do it. This guy plays more golf than people on the PGA Tour.”
THE TRUTH IS GOLF IS RELEVANT BECAUSE THE POINT IS ALL OF YOU POPULIST TRUMPERS WERE CONNNED.
YOU WERE CONNED
THAT CON JOB RESURFACES ALL THE TIME BECAUSE TRUMP LIED TO YOU REPEATEDLY TO GET YOUR VOTE, SO WHETEHR ITS ‘DRAIN THE SWAMP” (while being incredibly swampy himself) or the golf (having attacked Obama repeatedly) or “MEXICO WILL PAY FOR THE WALL” (as he stole $ from the Pentagon and his buddy Bannon conned more people) or “CHINA IS PAYING TARIFFS” (as his trade war faltered) or “ITS ANTIFA” (as his false cries of “law and order” failed) . . OU WWERE ALL CONNED . . willfully . . because you wanted something he was selling. so much so its was no big deal that he coddled Putin, strong armed Ukraine or now that his supporters stormed the Capitol.
“No big deal.” You never once called him on his lies, then or now.
