Donald Trump, SUUPER GEE-NIE-US!

From The NYTimes:
In fact, year after year, Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners. His core business losses in 1990 and 1991 — more than $250 million each year — were more than double those of the nearest taxpayers in the I.R.S. information for those years.
Go read the rest.

"I am legit confused about the rules... If it's wrong to publish stolen info embarrassing to a Democrat political candidate's poorly-protected server, why is it OK to publish stolen info about a Republican candidate when the govt promises by law to keep that info private?"

"While The Times did not obtain the president’s actual tax returns, it received the information contained in the returns from someone who had legal access to it. The Times was then able to find matching results in the I.R.S. information on top earners — a publicly available database that each year comprises a one-third sampling of those taxpayers, with identifying details removed. It also confirmed significant findings using other public documents, along with confidential Trump family tax and financial records from the newspaper’s 2018 investigation into the origin of the president’s wealth." - NYT

BTW, an ad hominem on Kurt Schlichter because why not:

"5. Schlichter giving would-be terrorists advice on how to shut down the trucking industry:

“A few guys shooting up big rigs along the interstate would shut down the entire trucking industry.”

6. Schlichter explaining how right-wing militias could invade and conquer San Francisco and Los Angeles:

“For example, San Francisco is a hotbed of treason, but the populace is largely unarmed and is trapped in a confined area. You put a brigade on securing the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, then put a brigade on the San Francisco Peninsula to cut off the I-280 and US-101 corridors. Next you go to the Crystal Springs Dam and cut off the water. Then you watch and wait as the tech hipsters run out of artisanal sushi rice and kombucha. After about a week, they surrender. After all, you can’t eat and drink smugness. LA is just bigger in scope – more corridors to cut off, but in the end the population concentrations in large liberal urban areas that are their strength also make them extremely vulnerable to logistical pressure.”
