Trump's Taxes Revealed: Nearly $1B Loss In 1995 Means He Probably Paid $0 For At Least 18 Years Comments (0)

Donald J. Trump is such a terrible businessman that he claimed an over $900-million loss on his 1995 income taxes, a loss that independent expert assured The New York Times meant he probably avoided paying taxes for at least 18 years.

From the piece:

“He has a vast benefit from his destruction” in the early 1990s, said one of the experts, Joel Rosenfeld, an assistant professor at New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate. Mr. Rosenfeld offered this description of what he would advise a client who came to him with a tax return like Mr. Trump’s: “Do you realize you can create $916 million in income without paying a nickel in taxes?”

Mr. Trump declined to comment on the documents. Instead, the campaign released a statement that neither challenged nor confirmed the $916 million loss.

“Mr. Trump is a highly-skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to his business, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required,” the statement said. “That being said, Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes.”

The statement continued, “Mr. Trump knows the tax code far better than anyone who has ever run for President and he is the only one that knows how to fix it.”

The three pages were mailed anonymously to the paper with Trump Tower in NYC as the return address. Trump's own taxman from the era emphatically assured the paper that the forms were legit.

*widget boy cultureAfter playing nice in Mexico—and lying about what was discussed!—Trump reverts to Hitler territory on immigration.

Bill Cunningham, NEW YORK TIMES Fashion Street-Shooter, Dies @ 87 Comments (0)

6a00d8341c2ca253ef014e602458a6970cBill Cunningham: March 13, 1929-June 25, 2016

Bill Cunningham, long a fixture in New York, where he would dash (and bicycle) around to take photos of real people in real fashion for the paper, has died at 87 from the effects of a stroke he suffered earlier this week

I was so proud to meet and get a picture with the out shooter (who did not take a picture of my outfit) a few years ago.

From that write-up:

I was most excited to meet and chat briefly with Bill Cunningham, the octogenarian fashion shooter for The New York Times. A new documentary on him (Bill Cunningham New York) is getting lots of good press, something he seemed a bit shy about when I mentioned it. “I haven't seen it,” he told me, “but I understand the filmmakers deserve a lot of praise.” He remembered my name when thanking me. It was fascinating to watch him work the line; so many of the queens had no idea who he was and seemed bemused when he would hand them a pad to write down their names. (This old-school method is fail-safe, though, if you want to avoid being Miss Identified.)

If you never saw Bill Cunningham New York (2010), do yourself a favor and see it.

Trump Has A Long History Of Treating Women Like Hookers Comments (0)

The New York Times has published an exhaustive account of Donald Trump's none-too-surprising mistreatment of women ... but will this change even one mind? I can't imagine any Trump voters find sexual harassment and/or frank misogyny to be concerning, unless it's to try to blacken Hillary Clinton's eye regarding her marriage to Bill Clinton.

NEW YORK TIMES Urges: Gun Control Now Comments (0)


The New York Times is running its first front-page editorial in 95 years—and it's not to indict Islam, or to suggest the president is soft on terrorism, it's to urge our representatives to stop sucking on the NRA's teat and do something meaningful regarding gun control.

There is no reason a citizen needs an assault weapon. At all. No matter how small their dicks, that type of gun is not necessary. There is no fathomable reason why Republicans should be so concerned about the supposed Second Amendment rights of people on terror watch lists.

Guns should not be easier to get than lawn darts.
