Oklahoma. The only good part of MS is the southern part and a couple college towns. Jackson is a s***hole, and the rest of the state is just a whole lot of nothing. As for Alabama, I'd keep my distance from Birmingham and Montgomery and most of the rural southern part of the state. Oklahoma does get tornadoes and has a lot of nothing as well, but whatever.

The Jackson suburbs in Madison County and the like are nice enough, just boring and sometimes white flight-y. And the only decent college town is Oxford - Starkville is a sh**thole.

Damnit, reading the thread title I was ready to break out the champagne at 7:52am.

No, recognizing the fact that Trump is a traitor is not equivalent to being a racist knuckledragger who questioned the legitimacy of a president merely because he was black. (while never sufficiently addressing the fact that his mother was a US citizen, making him a natural-born citizen no matter where he was born...)

Horrible, but Trump supporters aren't going to have any sympathy for her, for the most part.

Democrats only sympathize with her because she is attractive.

As agreed upon at the latest Trump-Kim summit, the United States lifts sanctions against North Korea in exchange for Kim Jong-un flattering Big Donnie's ego.

Had Donald Trump been president during the 1930s, he would have liked Hitler too.

For like a week, until Hitler betrayed or humiliated him, sure.

Mountain Brook is the "nicest" town in Alabama, but also full of morons and assholes.

It's 97% white and the median income there is north of $130,000.


Gross.

Yeah, that's what I mean by assholes. Someone like ExtremeFatso would fit in just fine.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump exaggerated his net worth by $2 billion to get loans from Deutsche Bank on: March 22, 2019, 11:58:18 am
This is just good business

It is bank fraud. People go to prison for that. Bankers do not lend to gamblers or cheats if they can avoid doing so.

A debtor has no right to cheat a creditor by offering something worthless, nearly-worthless, or blatantly overvalued as collateral.

Borrowing money is a privilege, and creditors need some protection. If the slum that I offer as a 'luxury apartment' as collateral for buying more property, then I cheat the bank. This is not to say that I cannot upgrade a slum apartment into 'luxury apartment' through renovation.   

You clearly have no idea how debt finance works...

So, today Kazakhstan's capital, Astana, was renamed into Nursultan (Nazarbaev). Brezhnev's vibes right here

The legitimate capital will always be Almaty anyway.

Nope, never have been to one and probably definitely never will go to one

Quote
Others named in the lawsuit include GOP operative Liz Mair, Mair Strategies, “Devin Nunes’ Mom” (@DevinNunesMom) and “Devin Nunes’ cow” (@DevinCow), two parody accounts that mocked the Trump ally and California Republican.
I see that Mr. Nunes got his legal advice from James Woods.

Incidentally, James Woods is a known cocaine addict.

Why is this a problem?

LOCK HIM UP.

While net-worth is a very volatile metric, claiming 2 billion out of thin air is something else.

After Trump made his financial assertions to DB, they evaluated the risk against the opportunity and they decided to move forward with providing him finance. You can't lock someone up if the counterparty conducts independent analysis and accepts the risk.

 Lying on a financial application is against Federal and State laws. Getting the mortgage or loan doesn't matter. Is it a prosecutable case for a NY Prosecutor, I don't know. But I'm in favor in any actions that leads to scrutinization of Trump's assets and relationship with Deutsch Bank, a bank that is notorious for money laundering.

Trump forging documents, claiming to own assets he did not, or asserting a value on an asset that is grossly unreasonable (we're talking like an order of magnitude off a hypothetical independent third party's valuation) is fraud. Business principals obviously have a tendency to be biased towards favorable valuations of their assets, while a bank's risk department's job is to be conservative. Trump's valuation of a real estate asset being 70% higher than the bank's risk department's valuation is far from unusual and far from financial fraud. On the contrary, it is literally just another day in alternative assets finance.

The Republican Party would be wise to take notes from DB. They're heading down exactly the same path. Nobody has come out of a long-term relationship with Trump for the better. He is a Category 5 moron who cannot be relied upon to act in any way even vaguely resembling reasonable.
