He's one who is leaving....now, if only Mitch McConnell would skedaddle off to retirement. I don't care who they are—I'd vote a two term limit in the Senate in a heartbeat.

He'll never disclose his returns. He ain't who he says he is, that much is for certain. Voters would be very interested in reading them, I'm sure. In an interview with the Associated Press, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump revealed that he will not release any of his tax returns http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/05/11/ap-interview-donald-trump-says-hes-narrowed-vp-shortlist.html before election day. Previously, Trump blamed an ongoing audit for his failure to release returns, an excuse that was questioned by tax experts http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2016-02-27/trump-excuse-for-not-releasing-tax-returns-puzzles-experts. As recently as Sunday, Trump pledged to release the returns “as fast as the auditors finish http://www.cnbc.com/2016/05/08/reuters-america-update-2-trump-changes-tune-on-tax-hikes-for-wealthy-americans.html.” Last October, Trump said he would release his tax returns once Hillary Clinton released her emails http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/week-transcript-donald-trump/story?id=34187405. Now, Trump adds that he’s not planning to release them because “there’s nothing to learn from them http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/05/11/ap-interview-donald-trump-says-hes-narrowed-vp-shortlist.html” and voters aren’t interested in the information. The announcement is a sharp break from historical precedent. Although the number of years for which they’ve released tax returns vary, every party nominee since 1976 has released some. Fifteen years of Hillary Clinton’s tax returns are available online http://www.taxhistory.org/www/website.nsf/web/presidentialtaxreturns. In January 2012, Trump told Greta Van Sustren that Romney “was hurt really very badly http://www.foxnews.com/transcript/2012/01/19/trump-gop-stop-playing-president-obamas-hands/” by his initial refusal to release his tax returns. He advised Romney to “release them now.” ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : If he's done anything illegal in regards to his tax returns, it is up to the IRS to prosecute him. If he hasn't done anything illegal, technically, it's none of anybody's business. But not to worry, the Washington Post has twenty full time people assigned to dig up dirt and that's just the W.P. And of course Hillary has The New York Times to cover her every mistake. Should be an easy victory ofr Hillary... you'd think. From: "awoelflebater@...

Venezuela has a single component economy, oil. Naturally with the oil markets in flux due to capitalist manipulation, the Venezuelan economy has suffered greatly. The only solution in the US is to break up the big banks, and create a structure where the 90 percent now reserved for the ultra wealthy will be redistributed to the 90 percent who need it, with taxes to match. Let's reward a hard day's work with a decent wage. Even if Clinton somehow wins the election, this issue will only grow stronger. It is unstoppable. With the advent of instantaneous and pervasive communication, the days of those who have increased their wealth on the backs of the middle class are coming to an end. 40 years with no increase in income is more than enough. For decades the unprincipled capitalists have been playing a game with the American workers - How far can the golden goose be exploited and still lay the golden eggs, while starving? The wealthy now have their answer. The goose is dead, and the people want their country back. We continue to be a country of unimaginable wealth and resources. People have figured out that the crumbs under the table, are just that. Fuck the greedy bastards. Yes, but do you not find it the height of irony that it is Donald Trump who is promising the peasants a change of fortune on his watch? He will never come down from his rococo towers willingly. I wonder if we will ever get to see his tax returns. I predict he will never make them public, and I think he needs to disclose at least 5 year's worth, because he certainly won't do it before the election and after the election he will not be President so many of his dirty little secrets will never come to the light of day. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : Looks like another Socialist experiment is failing www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-usa-idUSKCN0Y42MT http://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-usa-idUSKCN0Y42MT U.S. concern grows over possible Venezuela meltdown: officials By By Matt Spetalnick The United States is increasingly concerned about the potential for an economic and political meltdown in Venezu... http://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-usa-idUSKCN0Y42MT But at least everyone can share the misery equally!
