What a Minute ... Why Doesn't He NEGOTIATE????

Fired by Panama condo owners, Trump demands $75 million

WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump is demanding as much as $75 million from hundreds of condo owners in Panama City's Trump Ocean Club, alleging that its directors wrongfully fired his company as administrator managing the luxury building that is the tallest in Central America.

The Republican presidential candidate and celebrity businessman filed his claim confidentially with the Paris-based International Chamber of Commerce court of arbitration, The Associated Press has learned. The court organizes arbitration over complex civil settlements, often involving business deals that cross continents.

3. Trump's the One

that's been screaming for months how he is the greatest neGOtiator
emphasis LOUDLY on the second syllable

So this is how he does deals?

Sues in world court?

I still think Jeb! will be the nominee. Party leaders won't let this buffoon
get past March.

5. How would the Republican party stop

 

Trump or Carson or any of the current applicants for the job of Republican nominee if they start winning the party primaries and caucuses? Keep in mind that most of theirs are winner-take-all. Ours aren't, which is why we can go a heck of a lot longer without the nominee being certain. 2008 being a good example.

I suppose the various Republican primaries and caucuses could simply be won by at least four different candidates, ensuring a brokered convention, which could be both scary and interesting. Given how thoroughly the extreme right wing is in control of the party now, I'd guess that if that actually happens, the most extreme candidate still standing would be the one to get the nomination.

Jeb, in comparison, does appear quite sane and reasonable, almost a moderate Republican. My concern about him is that he's remarkably incompetent. I wonder what kind of a governor he actually made.

6. Jeb is the sane one of the bunch.

 

He believes in Evolution.

However, he de-funded Planned Parenthood in Florida. De-funding is not as bad as outlawing, though he claims to believe life begins at conception. Maybe that is survive the primary. However, he said he will not sign a federal ban on abortion that defines life at conception. So maybe he is moderate.

Kasich says he is OK with early abortions, but he also raised penalties on all crimes in his state, a strong arm of the prison system.

I'm still voting for Bernie Sanders.

2. I can just imagine him getting into an argument with someone like

Angela Merkel and insulting her appearance. Then, he might drop bombs on Berlin, just to show he can.

Of course, that is a bit extreme. But I think the best way to start WWIII is to elect this fool.

4. He would definitely do the first thing you mentioned,

 

but I'd hope that if he tried the second our military would not follow his orders.

Which would actually make an interesting near-future thriller. Wish I were a better writer, because I'd try writing that novel.
