Now, some states have laws protecting private sector workers against action taken for political FB posts and my friend lives in one of them. Also, if I was the former employee and knew the BoD directed him to do this, I'd be at an employment lawyer looking into hostile work and board malfeasance. I don't know if there's a case there but holy shit don't let your board drive your personnel decisions!



I think the universal truth here is that people are dumb

Is that what we've come to define as "political"

Holy fuck. Please have your D&O insurance paid up.

Not sure how one can see Trump support as anything but political. I guess YMMV.

I think he's talking about the BoA incident, not the incident about your friend.

He knows that but it wouldn't support his basis for an argument

I'm sure it was in the circumstance you've mentioned, but I think there are plenty of contexts where it could be seen otherwise.

Data point:

Contexts matters, of course.

My basis for an argument? Okay, you got me on that one as I'm lost now.

Apparently, Trump's goal with the Trump University business was to make money, and not just to help people? That is appalling.

Nothing, obviously. What's good for Madoff, Triangle Shirtwaist, Inc., slavers traders, and street dealers of heroin and bath salts should be good enough for him.

No mention of the Hillary email that told someone to strip classified headings from a document before sending?

Heroine dealing, in my opinion, is better than fraud, but I'm a crazy person. 

 

I think it goes something like this: Selling state secrets > lying under oath > fraud > selling drugs to consenting adults

It's kind of fun that Trump is a billionaire and still feels the need to use his name to run a real estate seminar scam. I guess that's how you get to be a billionaire, never pass up the next opportunity to make money.

That your  post  on my post  

was a post on a post I hadn't posted on. In other words you posted regarding my post  but my post wasn't about that post .BC then posted pointing that out and I posted back that you probably knew it wasn't about that post but given your usually argumentative nature you posted it anyway  just to farther the petty bickering . An assumption on my part to be sure and seemingly in error . If so, sorry and never mind. :puzzled:

He also didn't seem to anxious to donate that personal contribution of $1,000,000 to the Vets.

Maybe Trump is a frugal billionaire. Or maybe he's a full of shit wannabe billionaire.

What is ironic is that he is the one most concerned about his net worth.

If he had released a detailed report showing that he is worth only "$900,000,000", who would care.

What's also ironic is that when Trump voters like myself are close to being disgusted, more crap comes out about the Clintons. Look up Laureate U, and Bill Clinton's $16,000,000 in compensation. Trump may well be a 100% lieing crook but. he doesn't compare so badly to the Clintons.

I suppose I'm trending toward not voting at all versus voting for Trump. I absolutely would not vote for Hillary. Nor would I waste my time with a 3rd party or write in vote.

Those post-post posts can be confusing.

I thought that this was an interesting article on trump:
http://www.vox.com/2016/6/1/11690238/wayne-barrett-donald-trump

It sounds like he was actually quite good at building big buildings. He could play the political game to get subsidies and permits. He was on site every day paying close attention to all of the details. His dad did this on the scale of middle class brooklyn housing, and he took those lessons to big manhattan projects. Sure, some of the political dealings and processes are pretty shady, but who doesn't think developers are shady? He got it done.

But he didn't actually build that many of those big projects. The later stages of his career have been about loaning his name to shit that is financed and built mostly by other people.

That and running his own "get rich quick" schemes and reality TV shows.
