These returns must really have something bad in them.

"Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney joined those critics in a post on Facebook, calling it “disqualifying” for a nominee to a major party not to release returns. “Tax returns provide the public with its sole confirmation of the veracity of a candidate’s representations regarding charities, priorities, wealth, tax conformance and conflicts of interest.”

Romney said the fact Trump is being audited doesn’t prevent the release of those returns."

The lemmings aren't listening. They are ignorant and in denial. They will do anything he wants them to do, believe anything he tells them to believe. He's a Moron King leading his legion of mindless twits.

I think Mrs. Obama's speech was terrific as expected, but it was as expected and that's why I think Bernie's speech was the best of the night.

"And William Inboden, who served on the NSC during the George W. Bush administration, said Trump's comments were "tantamount to treason."

"Trump's appeal for a foreign government hostile to the United States to manipulate our electoral process is not an assault on Hillary Clinton, it is an assault on the Constitution," said Inboden, who now teaches at the University of Texas at Austin."
One former Bush staffer said Trump's comments were "tantamount to treason."

Donald Trump casts himself as a protector of workers, but a USA TODAY Network investigation found hundreds – carpenters, dishwashers, painters, even his own lawyers – who say he didn’t pay them for their work.

Whitehouse hacked. Pentagon Hacked. IRS and Social Security hacked , draining out millions of dollars. FBI begged Apple to open terrorist cellphone. Government server or internet was/is never safe. Forcing Clinton to use private server because it is more safe.

This is certainly one theory. My personal theory is a combination of his returns documenting a lower net worth than he has claimed combined with debts to Chinese banks. But it's the same idea, in principle. His returns are a personal and political embarrassment and this is the reason they have not been released.
Will suggested that is the reason Trump won't release his taxes.

I don't understand why nobody is talking about the fact that Trump is clearly bi-polar. As someone has has represented countless criminal clients who did what they did because they were bi-polar, I'm telling you that Trump is suffering from bi-polar disorder.

That's the next step, really. Bills like California's SB 277 (co-sponsored by a pediatrician, even - but still contested by parents believing they're protecting their children) will become commonplace.

Simply put, I don't see how anyone, let alone a woman, can vote for this guy.

"Trump’s response to the question was simply jaw-dropping. Trump stated that he felt “very badly” for Ailes (not for the women, though). Trump also praised Ailes as a “very, very talented person,” applauding the way he built Fox News into a media powerhouse.

Then Trump started attacking the women who had come forward. “I can tell you that some of the women that are complaining, I know how much he's helped them," he said.

Think about that comment for a moment. Trump is basically saying that since Ailes had helped these women with their careers, the alleged sexual harassment was okay because it was the price to pay for his help.

And then Trump did what he has done for years—he attacked the female victims as liars: “I can tell you that some of the women that are complaining ... when they write books that are fairly recently released, and they say wonderful things about him.

“And now all of a sudden they're saying these horrible things about him.”"

His reaction is no surprise at all.  Rather typical, in fact.

Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
