Losin’ Our Shirts

Barney Brantingham’s latest piece about Donald Trump brought up an important point — other than the main idea — that Trump has filed for bankruptcy four times. He owns casinos. I would rather have a president who used to sell drugs — at least when you have a rad hangover from them, you still feel like you got your money’s worth. Owning a casino is like being a robber. At least a drug dealer gives you something. Of course both drugs and gambling are bad for you. Do you think the people who promote them make good leaders for your country? If so — Trump 2016!
