Two wars started under Bush without legitimacy. Longest wars in US history. Won't be fixed by Trump, either. Quagmire. Cost the US trillions.

Veterans dying while awaiting care. This one is astounding. VA hides applications, bad software, bad processes. $180B in funding is not the answer. Needs a clean sweep from top down and bottom up. Dept of Veterans Affairs has offered solutions? Haven't seen any.

ISIS will continue to grow. No surprise; wars and bombs tend to make people hate their enemy.
I got the golf one wrong. I apologize.
You're blaming Bush just like Obama did. The wars didn't run the debt up from 10T to 20T.
The VA officials informed Obama's transition team about the cooked books in 2008. He didn't do anything about until 2014 when he accepted Shinseki's resignation.
ISIS is on him because he's inept. Reporters asked him back in the 2012 election if he had any plans to deal with them, and he said no. Not bad for a JV team. Any other president would have had the common sense to listen to their generals.

Maybe you could ask to go on the Oprah Show to expound on this?

Or maybe not... https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/244983 Protect Your Brand, Oprah Style: 5 Legal Strategies She Uses (And You Should, Too)
Oprah's brand represents what she believes. The books, shows, network, magazine align with her values.

Trump's brand? He slaps Trump on every gold plated thing he can.

Trump university
Trump stakes
Trump tower
Trump castle
Trump plaza
Trump Taj Mahal
Trump Entertainment Resorts
Trump success (his cologne!)
Trump productions
Trump jets

Could fill the page. Don't have time.

1 word: Narcissism.

Only a fool would not protect their intellectual property.

So, it is right for Oprah to protect her intellectual property, but wrong for Trump to protect his?

You just shot yourself in your foot.

Re: Trumps theater tweet

I am stuck in hospital waiting room and they have the left "news" channel on. They are interviewing that idiot actor. Every word he said was hypocritical.

Just another ordinary person who thinks what he says is important. It's not. You lost. Get over it or see a therapist.

I'd be honored if HRC or BHO came to my show, although i would never vote for them.

Naming your businesses after yourself protects your intellectual property. Learned something new today.

A lot of people who own businesses use their last name as part of the name of the business. This is nothing unusual at all.

So according to you, all businesses that do are run by narcissists.

You know like the Clinton Foundation.


LOL

And here are some other examples

I just realised that I might not have made it clear what intellectual property means. This will help explain it.

He marketed his brand. What's wrong with that? He employed people. Created jobs.

How many jobs did you create? I thought so !

All this smacks of jealously. I'm sorry you didn't work to become a billionaire and build a famous brand. Or become a celebrity on TV. Or be elected President of the United States.

But heck, you have TAM. Trump isn't here. You have him beat on that.

Listen to any speech by Obama and count how many time he says "I".

Now we know why Hillery lost. Funny but its true. Yet the Democraps are still screaming, "How can we be so right on what makes American and Trump's intolerance supported by uneducated, racist, "deplorables" still kicked us to the curb; as their hard leftists members, with a high percentage composed of those profiting from government give-aways, riot, burn, loot and destroy property.
And these cats don’t get it. They keep pushing the same narratives that only the stupid, ignorant, racist, xenophobes and homophobes disagree with their agenda.
I personally hope they continue to harangue, strike, boycott, and riot to show all of us how they "ain't gonna put up with no intolerance".

If you don't embody controversy, what you say will become just another part of the media driven culture of stifling thought and debate about issues.

Not on Trump or anything, but Hillary lost simply because she didn't get the voters with the most power. It's hard to say "Now we know why HillAry lost" when she received more votes. It's the system, and while I have always wanted it changed, she absolutely lost. However, don't give me now we know why other than pointing to the 3 states she should have won, but lost narrowly...

Apparently you are very naive when it comes to business. Here is just a short list of companies that have the founder's name as the brand and company name. Many of these are names that we see plastered all over the place in stores, on TV, etc.

Hillary has more of the popular vote that has been counted so far.

She also got 2-3 million votes from illegals. So we need to subtract those out of her numbers.

Also there are hundreds of thousands of uncounted votes from groups like the US military. The US military usually votes predominately republican. If we went by the popular vote, those too would need to be counted.

To say that Hillary won the popular vote really means very little since we would not really know that until ALL the votes are counted and those that are not legitimate votes were subtracted out.

This is one of the reasons that the electoral vote is a brilliant concept. If we went by popular vote alone, it would take months, maybe years to count and validate every vote.

Re: Trumps theater tweet

I really want to know how many illegals voted. If someone is an illegal immigrant and they voted, they should be deported immediately right alongside the felons.

Go to your state's Corporation Commission website and search last names. You will find dozens upon dozens of companies named after the person who started and runs the company. It is very normal for a person or family to name their business using their name.

If they are illegal and didn't vote, they also should be deported.

I am much more in favor of criminalizing the acts of those that hire them. Put them in jail and the illegal problem will be greatly reduced. Not insignificant fines. Jail the employer.

Then set up better and faster route to increased legal immigration.
