re: Kristol & #NeverTrump's Presidential Candidate wants to run (update) - NWHoustonTiger
Trump sold the pageant business last year. I was not able to find any information about price, terms, etc., but there was a NY Post piece indicating that [link=(http://nypost.com/2015/10/10/donald-trumps-sale-of-miss-universe-actually-fell-short/)]it wasn't that great of a deal for OrangeMan[/link]...

So I think what your trying to say here is that a REIT may not be a good benchmark for comparisons to the Trump Organization. You would be correct - Trump has [link=(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-donald-trump-left-13-billion-on-table-2016-03-01)]massively underperformed REITs[/link] over his...

re: Paul Ryan "trump could win but I'm not betting on it" - NWHoustonTiger
Paul Ryan is the only one who could stand between Trump and his dreams of Universal Healthcare, economy-crippling trade wars, a Putin-dominated Europe, tax increases, and speech controls. Yeah, I can see why Trumpkins believe Ryan has to go....

re: Kristol & #NeverTrump's Presidential Candidate wants to run (update) - NWHoustonTiger
My model is not "very speculative." Back of the napkin - yes (I'm not going to spend all day building a valuation model for the purpose of arguing with Trumpkins on the Internet) - but I used two objective data points - market capitalization of comparable Real Estate Holding Cos and the sale price o...

re: Kristol & #NeverTrump's Presidential Candidate wants to run (update) - NWHoustonTiger
Your post cut off, but I think I get what you are saying. I should have been more clear in my original post that, while we don't know what's income and what's revenue in those disclosures, Fortune Magazine's analysis pretty well demonstrates that most of the big numbers he's reporting are likely rev...

re: Kristol & #NeverTrump's Presidential Candidate wants to run (update) - NWHoustonTiger
No, the $500MM he reported is likely gross revenue, not net income. See my [link=(http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/display.aspx?sp=63350773&s=2&p=63348930#63350773)]prior post[/link] for an analysis of his FEC filings and what they likely mean in terms of his actual wealth. If $500MM were a n...

re: Here they come for the free speech..... - NWHoustonTiger
That's the great thing about the Internet - everyone can be a hard-ass. I support your right to say dumb shite with which I disagree. It's what separates us from the banana republics and authoritarian states that Trump considers "strong."...

re: Trump just locked up the Hispanic vote - NWHoustonTiger
The "Poor" currently pay zero income taxes and most qualify for refundable tax credits (which I don't necessarily oppose - unlike welfare, and least the earned income credit has a work requirement). Is Trump referring to payroll taxes? If so, is it fair for lower-income workers to access social secu...

For someone with "DrGiggles" as a handle, you sure are a sad, angry piece of shite. Perhaps you earned your doctorate at Trump University? You may be new to this, or perhaps Civics wasn't in the curriculum at the "Special School" you attended, but the United States Constitution contains 27 Amendments...

re: Anyone on here join Bill Kristol's "Renegade Party" on Twitter? - NWHoustonTiger
Not me. I think Kristol, Romney and Erick Erickson are way off here. A 3rd Party candidate (1) has no shot at electoral success and (2) will only give the Trumpkins an excuse for why The Orange Combover gets schlonged in the General Election. I'd rather let this election play out and have a great...

re: Trump made over $500M last year - NWHoustonTiger
1) It's not clear if this is some kind of top-line revenue or net income figure. My understanding is that these FEC disclosures can include Gross or Net figures. 2) If these numbers are so good, why not release the returns? There shouldn't be that great of a book-to-tax difference. Fortune M...
