Bezos, Buffet, Gates, Walton... if that's not aristocracy what is?
Those guys all made their money with the exception of the Walton heirs. Buffet and Gates are giving most of it back.

Maybe it's time to focus a little on the data instead of being ignorant.

I think these qualities in Trump are somehow lost in translation, because I don't see them either. This forum is however very well versed in his thought and politics, perhaps someone could direct me towards the best examples of said qualities? It would be nice to see his best side on display.

You need to study some economics. Look at Venezuela. Is that what you want?

They nationalized the energy companies there and the place is falling apart with millions fleeing like rats from a sinking ship.

Not everybody has the talent to be really rich anymore than all of us can play championship basketball.

I don't know crap about what you are.

How is that?

What I know is how to read. I see what you write. So does everyone else.
Your commentary is quite left. Your views of Reds could change if you
saw the frozen bodies stacked house high. Famine is quite a drug.

Instant compliance. Or maybe you see Reds as charming, fair and
debonaire.

Send what food you grow to the city. Keep none for yourself. Thus
the Kulaks were exterminated. The Russian Kulaks were a class
of peasant farmers who owned their own land. "Kulak" was originally
intended to be derogatory.

Reds in China did it the other way. Deny cities food. Same
results. Instant compliance.

If you are a Red, you should be aware of your tribe's favorite methods.

Read about it in a dark corner of a public library. Nobody will know
unless you speak about it.

For a start on his good qualities, follow his salary. The one he donates to a good cause every quarter. Donald Trump is an egotistical jerk. That doesn't change the fact that we could pool together any dozen AZB'ers over and over and be unlikely to ever find a random dozen that has donated cash or given away what would have been profits on the level he has. When the good times were rolling I gave ten to fifteen thousand a year to charities. All of my giving isn't a drop in the bucket to what President Trump has given and will continue to give.

Things like a half-million for TV appearances went directly to charity. The people bashing him claim that telling people to give his fees to a charity instead of giving it to him and him giving it to the charity isn't the same thing. They are right, the monies aren't double taxed so MORE goes to the charity!

The article I read bashing him took a time period when they acknowledged his businesses were doing poorly, almost all businesses were, and the tight SOB only gave about a quarter million a year average to charities! He had to be prodded to give a million to a charity.

The US and the president can be slammed for many things but failing to help when there is need isn't one of them.

Which isn't even a down payment on the amounts he's ripping us off for in illegal emoluments. If the truth mattered to Trump supporters you'd start with something a little more representative than that window dressing:

Quote:
Trump charity to dissolve under deal with N.Y. attorney general
- Reuters


U.S. President Donald Trump’s namesake charitable foundation has agreed to dissolve under court supervision...

Attorney General Barbara Underwood ... said in a statement that the foundation had served as “little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests”
