Holy crap that web site sucks. Can't read the story because some advertising animation totally obscures it, click "Exit X" to stop it, a popup appear, close that, some little screen appears with a choppy video and annoying music. Never got to read the story. I guess it said something about Trump getting fired.

More Money = Better Than


By that logic, Trump is pretty much the worst person on the planet. He's so continually financially underwater that he's had more bankruptcies than you've had hot meals.

The only reason he has expensive shiat is that there are a lot of ways to avoid actually paying debts once those debts are measured in billions of dollars instead of thousands.

Kim could just bend over in a thong and all would be forgiven.

He was fired on Tuesday as the management company for Trump Place, a high end condo place in NYC.

Call me when Donald is selling a sex video where he's filmed getting pissed on. Until then, his dignity is a bit higher than Ms. Kardashian. Not much, but... there must be a clearly defined line.


/had Donald done a sex video, he would sell it with gusto.

fta: The Trump Organization claimed they were unaware of the change in management companies.

If that was in an attempt to try to make themselves look less pathetic it failed.

And this guy was a GOP frontrunner at some point?

Wow, they got nothing.

Oh great, more of the fake "war on women". How about the real war in Libya or Omen or wherever with the thing where the ambassador died and Obama lied? It wasnt even until 28 days later he called it an act of terror. In the isles of Tripoli there are Americans who died martyrs and Obama didnt call it terrorism, which added insult to their injuries. Candy "Manface" Crowly lied saying otherswise. From what I saw in that debate, Obama is a creep, showed his true colors (black) and all he had were lies. This war on women is more lies. Theres a chain of politicians that know there are a lot of "rape abortions" going on right now that were from illegitimate rapes. John Cornyn and the rest of the Texas chain saw massacres of babies that were gifts from God and spoke up, and Im sure all of the children of Cornyn appreciate that he thinks that way and didnt abort them. See, a lot of women just get pregnant so they can get "the ring". John Doe gets Mary pregnant but then doesnt proprose. Marys baby then goes bye bye after she screams "rape". From personal experience girls always complain about making them have unsafe sex or cysts on there cervix or whatever, but if we start giving girls birth control or cervical cancer vaccines, they will loose there innocence and just start banging whoever. And then cry rape so they can get an abortion. Girls are psychos. The GOP is NOT hostile toward women, except for Obama who is literally a woman. He bows to Tony Blair which projects weakness to are enemies. When important meetings happen he is literally a ghost. Ships in the navy have fallen to there lowest level since Spanish armada whom we are now vulnerable to. He is an illegal alien and the most leftist candidate since John Karrey and is destroying are society. These are the real issues, not women and people who arent braindead know it. So Obama better enjoy Halloween next week because thats his last week in office and we will let the right one in. He has failed his audition and will not be missed, the dissenters are now ready to put Romney inside the White House and try to forget the horror of the last four years.

I'm not sure which is lulzier the fact that you think Obama is a socialist or the fact that you think he's not gonna win re-election handily.

Keep whistling past the elephant's graveyard, sunshine.

The Great EZE: Skarekrough: sendtodave: Wow, lot's of Trump schadenfreude in here.

When you watch something like "Intervention" it's easy to point and say something like "Wow...I'm glad I'm not addicted to heroin" or "I'm glad I'm not chugging a bottle of vodka to get out of bed" or "I'm glad I'm not doing something I will regret later in life just so I can make a quick buck to feed my addiction."

When I see Trump I realize that I'm happy being who I am and that even if I were blessed to possibly have that volume of wealth and notoriety it would be very unlikely that I could possibly ever be that big of a douche.

It's life affirming to see someone fall from grace who has demonstrated repeatedly that they're a terrible human being. And what's better is that it keeps happening with him over and over again. Every time you turn around you're seeing one of the grand pillars upon which he has built just to demonstrate how great he is being pulled out from under him.

I'm too lazy to find and link the Mr. Show clip right now but I will never stop being shocked at all the people who think money alone makes one a better person. How little respect do you have for yourself to revere another human being just because of his bank account?

I've made my education and career decisions and have a pretty good idea where those decisions should take me. I'll never have the money that Trump has, not even close. Yet at half his age I know for a fact that I am and will be more than person than he ever will. And I can say the same for a lot of people who will show up in this thread.


That Puritan work ethic everyone reveres so much is to blame. Puritans believed that one's success in life was due to God's favor. Work hard and if God approves you will get material rewards. If God doesn't approve, you do not see success. In church they would sit ranked by wealth, the wealthiest closest to the altar.

Social darwinism is deeply ingrained in our country's DNA.

You know Examiner.com isn't a real news site, right? People have said this numerous times here, yet links from it keep being greenlighted.

Examiner.com is a media company based in Denver, Colorado, that operates a network of local news websites, allowing "pro-am contributors"[1][2] to share their city-based knowledge on a blog-like platform, in 238 markets throughout the United States and parts of Canada with two national editions, one for each country.[3][4][5][1]

I can't find this story on any legitimate news site. It's mentioned on HuffPo, also. I'm not even saying it isn't true, but I can't find a good source for it.

Zen in a Beggar's Life

Tosui was a well-known Zen teacher of his time. He had lived in several temples and taught in various provinces.

The last temple he visited accumulated so many adherents that Tosui told them he was going to quit the lecture business entirely. He advised them to disperse and to go wherever they desired. After that no one could find any trace of him.

Three years later one of his disciples discovered him living with some beggars under a bridge in Kyoto. He at one implored Tosui to teach him.

"If you can do as I do for even a couple of days, I might," Tosui replied.

So the former disciple dressed as a beggar and spent a day with Tosui. The following day one of the beggars died. Tosui and his pupil carried the body off at midnight and buried it on a mountainside. After that they returned to their shelter under the bridge.

Tosui slept soundly the remainder of the night, but the disciple could not sleep. When morning came Tosui said: "We do not have to beg food today. Our dead friend has left some over there." But the disciple was unable to eat a single bite of it.

"I have said you could not do as I," concluded Tosui. "Get out of here and do not bother me again."

Get a life.

Jealous? Of Donald Trump? I've always been a fan of his antics. Love the fact he makes...excuse me...knows how to maneuver money. But that dumb*ss politically-agended ploy he pulled yesterday, the dumb*ss crap he told both A-Rod and Jeter about moving out of his property, and the fact he doesn't recognize his own stupidity has made me lose all interest in him. Kinda like Rosie O'Do...fark...can't even remember how to spell her name.
