    And maintaining his other commercial properties. Makes for many paychecks every month.

    Perhaps Trump like making something of his own as opposed to betting on someone else.
    As has been recently documented, a computer handling your portfolio does better than people.
    I think Trump enjoys the process and he's not hurting for money.

    If you had bothered to read anything I posted you would understand that Trump makes money off his going bankrupt while others, especially the working man, loses.

    As to his other properties, Trump is not the one creating the jobs there. Others are doing that, and Trump is taking credit for it.

    In any event, I have to wonder why anyone with half a mind would support a clown who urges his followers to attack those who oppose him, and then says he will pay for their legal fees. Do you think he will pay for the legal fees of the guy arrested today for attacking a Trump protester? Just what does that say about his character, or lack thereof, or even that of his supporters?

    You don't seem to understand the real estate biz. It's ok, many people dont.
    Enjoy not voting for Trump.

    Actually, I understand it quite well since I own many properties myself. Then too, and as usual, you provide nothing to prove me wrong. In that capacity, you and Gnostic Bishop have quite a bit in common.

    I notice that Ben Carson, another good "christian" is going to endorse Trump. Well, liars, and cowards, must stick together.

    You might read this even though I am quite sure you won't since it is beyond your comprehension:

    You do love being a curmudgeon Trap !
    So, did you develop these properties of yours ? If not I could see that you might view real estate as not producing jobs.

    Looking at Trump's TV shows, casinos, etc.., it leaves little doubt he isn't a Christian, at least not to the degree to brag about it. The news interviews where Trump is interviewed about Biblical knowledge look like some skit off some late night comedy show. :rolleyes: Generally speaking, the move to actively endorse Trump seem to rise from the fact he's the only strong right wing candidate left.

    I'm not trying to judge people, but Trump seems like a "Burt Reynolds playboy" kind of guy. The kind of guy you see promoted on Maxim magazine. What use would he have for religion? However, I sort of admire people like that because normally they aren't using religion to make a buck, rather they ignore the issue. You can at least give them credit for that.

    Boatloads of men like that are in my family. They're tobacco using, card playing, heavy drinking womanizers.

    Funny though, that the right is now electing a Bill Clinton type personality, considering they bashed Clinton so much back in the day.

    Wasn't what I said, however, it is not unusual for you to not grasp the intent of what is said.

    As to my properties, I actually have lost money on them since the Bush recession crashed the value of the properties from 20-30,000 an acre to 1000-1500 an acre. Well, I actually have not lost money since I only paid 50 an acre to begin with. It is an investment. Do you know what that is?

    As to my being a "curmudgeon", I do have a low tolerance for stupidity I do admit.

    What you say is Trump (or anyone else for that matter) is an awful fault laden bum. This allows to not have to support anything or any one and risk people being human.
    I have no issue with this. You enjoy it and diversion is what chat boards are all about.
    50 bucks an acre huh ? Was this your end of the Louisiana Purchase ? You really would be an old trapper ! : )
    Should have sold at 20-30k. That bubble was obvious.

    Actually, I wanted to sell, but my partner would not. We lost about $700,000 on the deal. As to the "bubble" one line of thought was that it would affect homes, not bare land. Should have known better with Republicans in control. Then too, you once again show your lack of knowledge. Check out some of the prices for raw land in Az. in the 70's, and 80's.

    As to supporting others, I support honest people, not liars and cowards. I would suggest you do the same, however, you would not care to do what is best for the country no matter what I have to say. The only thing that is going to change people like you is a complete disastour that will destroy the country, and then we can hope something better might come up from the ashes, if it is possible.

    You don't consider Ted Cruz a "right wing" candidate? He's certainly further to the right than Trump is, it seems to me.

    Cruz is of the religious right, while Trump is more of a Shwarzenegger Republican. Trump would leave people's personal lives alone generally. Anyhow, either one of them is bad news.
