About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Trump's real-estate empire pays the price for poisonous politics: Yahoo finance

(Reuters) - Former U.S. president Donald Trumpís slashing rhetorical style and divisive politics allowed him to essentially take over the Republican Party. His supporters are so devoted that most believe his false claim that he lost the 2020 election because of voter fraud.

But the same tactics that have inspired fierce political loyalty have undermined Trumpís business, built around real-estate development and branding deals that have allowed him to make millions by licensing his name.

Trumpís business brand was once synonymous with wealth and success, an image that now clashes sharply with a political brand rooted in the anger of his largely rural and working-class voter base. His presidency is now associated in the minds of many with its violent end, as supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Those searing images, along with years of bitter rhetoric, are costing Trump money. Revenues from some of his high-end properties have declined, vacancies in office buildings have increased and his lenders are warning that the companyís revenues may not be sufficient to cover his debt payments, according to Trumpís financial disclosures as president, Trump Organization records filed with government agencies, and reports from companies that track real-estate company finances.

Prospective tenants in New York are shunning his buildings, one real-estate broker said, to avoid being associated with Trump. Organizers of golf tournaments have pulled events from his courses.

Places to dream about going to...right here in U.S.A.






I learned a new word today..........."flibberdigibbets" ........from a fellow DU poster....

.....A fellow named ...........Max.......You never know what you will learn at Democratic Underground......

My hat is off to this DU poster..........................


..................WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE SEEN IT ALL,,,,THERE IS ALWAYS MORE...!!!!!!!...............



Here it is:..totally absurd...maybe funny??.. "I had a talk with the Poop Police" (very weird).....

......................................The "Poop Police monitor ..."Poop"........................................................


.I talk to them, they never talk back. These fellows monitor, regulate, and make sure that "Poop"....................
............. ...is regular, not constipated, or liquid, right size, easy to "come out", not bad or good, just ." plain poop"...
....You buy these in a food store, they are very cheap, (less than a quarter a piece) ...(yes, one for a quarter)...??
They are short objects, 6 to 8 inches in length, curved, and they do regulate "poop".............................. .....................................If you eat one or two a day,..........................................................................
....................................YOUR POOP IS OK... !!!!!.....................................................................
.....................................What else can one say?..On this very day??.................................................

...Well, these fellows are not real .."police"... but they regulate the .."poop"..They are not new.....
..These items have been around a very long time...Are grown in other countries, also they lower blood pressure, they are curved, yellow, easy to open and you eat them..... Peal the skins off and they are ready to eat...no cooking, and they
never talk to you.....................................................................................................................................

............So, now you know what I am talking about..Don't You?..

.......I have been eating them for over 65 years, these guys are known by their other name:..........bananas .............
...I am sure you figured that out by now. What I like about them is: that they are sweat, easy to deal with, and if you have one or two a day..............................................................................................
......................You are OK........and yes....... THEY HELP TO CONTROL.....POOP....................................................

One last sentence...I told you that this would be absurd, ridiculous, and weird..&.Yes,..YOU WERE WARNED!.........

................Oh....at least this isn't .....dirty.....perhaps it is......so again...it is time to hide...

.............Maybe you laughed, and maybe you didn't... and if you did?........That is good. It is very, very, good.................

..........

Warning: It is coming: Most absurd, ridiculous topic ever posted..Right Here in Weird News..

Maybe tonight, or early tomorrow...Too weird to describe...

Why the Internet is Addictive For Me.... (An Opinion)

...You may not agree, that is OK, but this is an opinion only....Back in the 70s and 80s I played video games over
and over...I studied gambling and I went to the casino occasionally. Also, I played cards with friends and won some of the time, and lost some of the time..Yes, it feels like gambling, it plays the same as gambling, and yet it costs nothing but... time.....Lots of "time"....Sometimes, I come for 5 minutes, and stay for 5 hours or more..

....If hit a jackpot...(that is a story or article I really like and enjoy or is of great interest) then, I hit the net again.
That jackpot costs nothing but."time". Guess, what? Time is One ofThe Most Important of All Commodities We Have

....And it is clear to me, (my opinion) that the internet is truly addictive....Not a little, but a whole lot..

....When I get some information, or make a connection with someone, or get an answer to something I was wondering
about, I get the ..gambling buzz...and it feels good or great. ( that is my opinion)... And that.buzz...lasts a while...
..and then I need another "buzz"..and another...and another...Way different than going to a casino....Why?

...The distance from my bed to the computer is about 15 feet.I don't have long to walk, and I don't have to get dressed at all & I don't have to drive a car. I can sit there in my underwear and go from spot to spot on the internet. Here there and everywhere....All kinds of places....from animation (A) to ...zebras ..(Z) and everything in between. And the cost?...some electricity..and the long range cost of the computer...Mine is now about 10 years old..and totally paid for...

...The variety on the internet is totally incredible:....from Art....to Baseball....to Fall ...to Games...to Leaves...to Leave It To Beaver .. to Movies......(full length and other types),...to Nudes....to Rodeos...to Sports...to Underwear.. ...to Violins........to Winter... ..... to X rated stuff.........to Yellowstone National Park.........to Zoos.


....If you want to buy something, you can buy it on the internet..(if you have an active credit card) or if you contact the seller. the seller will often come to your place to sell it to you...And you don't have to leave your home to buy it...(providing you have enough money in your account). .And, the internet can tell you that too..Maybe you will need a phone next to your computer to talk to someone about the buying and selling....And all of this without leaving your home/apartment/or living space.

...So if I am not buying or selling anything, and I just want to go from place to place...well it doesn't cost a thing but time...
You can also gamble on the internet, if your credit is OK,,but that is risky for anyone...It starts and never stops

.............I know that some may not agree with all of this, (or some of it) ... but this is the truth for me .................... .

............ Also....Soon.... I have to decide if I need to shut the computer off for good...

....If I want information about most things...there is something called.....the ..radio.. that gives lots of information, and
many stations & spots to turn to. It worked in the past and still works...if you are patient, and don't want to buy and
sell stuff..........

...........But the internet is dangerous in its own way, and I have described some of it in the essay above.................. ...........Yes, it is dangerous for me, and I guess this is enough for now.......................................... ..
