Negatory.

Children who follow their parents into the family business is not nepotism.

This has been going on since the dawn of time.  

 

Hunter, on the other hand, got a 3 million dollar job.....for doing nothing.

Why?   His last name was Biden.  And that gave Ukraine access to the highest,

and most powerful, office on Earth.  That is nepotism.

That’s the definition of nepotism...

 

nep·o·tism
/ˈnepəˌtizəm/

Which part?

The BORROW AND SPEND economy crashing and burning"

Were you asleep in 2007-8?

It's OK, they will be doing a replay of it.

And the BORROW AND SPEND economy will go on forever,

or,

until the rest of the world adopts the Chinese currency.

DO YOU SEE THE UNDERLINE? IT IS IN MY ORIGINAL RESPONSE

 

THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN!

Unless the BORRROW AND SPEND economy reverts back to Capitalism,

that is exactly what will happen.

You do realize that Capitalism

DOES NOT NEED GOVERNMENT SUPPORT.

Capitalism died in America about the time that G W Bush was elected.

Look at the history of dividends.

Democrats have 500+ bills.  This is what gives trump the fodder to say the “do nothing democrats” bcus mitch won’t take up any dem bills.  He’s only adopting repub legislation.  Ergo:  mitch allows trump to perpetuate his fallacious narrative.  It’s a trump/mcconnell circle jerk.

Masturbatory Democrat fantasy bills with no bipartisan support.

Sooooo…….

If I start a ranch in my 20's, build it up for 20yrs., teach my children everything I know about ranching,

and then hire my 2 daughters, as 'Range-Bosses'...………..have I done something wrong?

 

What is that family pawn shop business on cable?  With the bald-headed guy?  Is that wrong?

Who remember the old TV show, "Dallas"......and the South Fork Ranch.....J.R. Ewing?

Was that wrong?

 

I remember now.  Pawn Stars.

71% of americans want the eyewitnesses to trumps crimes to testify under oath and tell us the truth,

.that is not surprising but what astonishes honest americans and people of good will is how the trump cult does not want the truth to be told. one can only surmise that they are exceedingly dishonest and want the truth to be hiodden because they know he is dirty and they don't want to

be embarrassed by the truth. and so they lie to their children and to the rest of us.

and now that evangelicals have served notice I don't see how some republicans can possibly deny us the truth for the sake of the minority of dishonest people.

I want the truth to how Russian disinformation made it into a FISA application to spy on Carter Page.

As I said ... nepotism.  
 

Why does the son of a criminal (jared) and the step-son to another shady real-estate developer get a gov’t position?

 

Why does a purse designer (ivanka) get a position as adviser to the potus?

 

All three are privy to nepotism.  I don’t see the distinction here.

If you follow logic beyond what needs to be explained to you... donald j trump is not a stable genius.  He, like most elites, are products of inherited wealth.  donald has lost more net worth than he’s ever created.    If any of what trump purports to be true concerning his net worth, he’d flash it all over TV.  That’s his personality.  That’s who he is.  He’s lived off the name of his father and the wealth generated by his father.  Trump, since the early 80’s has lived off credit. 
 

A study done by a brown economics professor once tallied had trump invested conservatively in stocks & bonds without ever getting in the hotel & casino racket... he’d be worth around 3x’s what he purports & brags about.  
 

Every perceived image or notion republicans have of trump if off by a factor of 10.  How do I know this?  History.

The Kennedy’s history is Americana... From triumph to tragedy.

 

There is nothing in the trump story that pays homage to American culture.  The trumps are much more aligned w/ the underbelly of corruption like the mob.
