Trump not only can purchase Gail Howard's lottery system, he also has the financial ability to hire clairvoyant Beti Schulz for her expertise.  Obviously with this combination lottery wins will be great, thus the building of the "Great Wall" can be accomplished.  Also, as a backup, Trump can redirect lottery profits from education to the "Great Wall Fund".  In this manner the wall will benefit from the front end of the lottery as well as the back end. 

The money trees are his alone, grown on the family farm, and consumption is not for use by constituents, or non-constituents for that matter.   However, public funds may be utilized to study their growth and develop hybrids.  The Grant $50 can be cross-fertilized with the Franklin $100 which will likely result in a tenfold Trump $1500 bill. 

You mention increased suicides, let's hope not, but hopefully the $255 burial cost benefit will stay in place as a safeguard.

You also mentioned lower taxes.  I think you misunderstood how the context of the word "lower" was meant.  I believe it was meant in the manner of 'muffle', which can also be equated to 'envelop', which can also be equated to 'shield'.  So, taxes being lowered really means taxes being shielded, i.e. protected from being lowered.

This is BS.  (The parts I can comprehend, anyway.)

    Sorry you can't see it.  But just because you personally have trouble seeing it does not make you correct.

    Congratulations on not paying taxes for 12 years.  I and everyone else paying taxes is footing the bill for you.

    Especially on lottery winnings-Should be TAX FREE LIKE IN CANADA...

      Whoa. That was just nasty.  The poster says he is on SS disability which they probably got because they worked and paid into social security and then had some life changing disaster befall them.  They do not pay taxes because they make so little money on a payout on what is a form of disability insurance.  I didn't even get the sense that they were bragging on not paying taxes just that lower taxes wouldn't be enough to influence their decision.

      Unfortunately this is becoming another place I will probably avoid until after the election. No Nod

        Nothing nasty about it.  We all have our crosses to bear.  I think the idea of putting a strongly-worded argument out there, combined with a sympathy-garnering statement is passive-aggressive. 

        If someone wants to debate a point, that's fine with me.  Just don't combine it with a "woe-is-me" statement to try and prevent anyone from disagreeing.

              After Trump is in the White House it may be more advantageous for you to stay:  taxes will be lowered.

              I Agree!

              Trump may even open up opportunities for him to make more than the $13k he currently makes while keeping him safer. If that doesn't sound appealing he can always start walking to Canada as he should make it there before the elections.

                If people really think the nation will be horrible economically and totally inhabitable under a Trump administration they should immediately seek another country to call home. I have heard a large number of folks from Hollywood as well as half of the Democrats who are currently employed by the federal government planning to move to Canada if Hillary doesn't win.

                I just saw "Hillary's America" and it is an eye opener, I would suggest everyone especially Democrats to see it. Many things never taught in school or mentioned by our beloved media.

                   Our government has no shame on how it tax people, how many ways it tax people and how much it tax people.  They are in essence parasites.

                        Euromillions will cost 2.50 euro the combination. Poor people don't spend on 50 combinations twice a week at that price. We have full system forms.

                        Eventually people owning businesses are the biggest players. They use their black cash to play. Drug money also plays gambling.

                            Yes, but like Samuel Clemens' "The Adventure of Tom Sawyer" and "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", the works contain just enough truth and personal experiences to keep people wanting more.  Naughty

                              Keep drinking your party's Kool aid.

                              Fact: Democrats were opposed to freeing the slaves while Republicans had compassion and wanted to abolish slavery.

                              Fact: The KKK was an arm of the Democrat party.

                              Fact: Democrat Andrew Jackson was a racist, had numerous slaves that were subject to repeated lashings. He also fathered children through his slaves.

                              Fact: Hillary Clinton was mentored by Saul Alinsky (also did her college thesis on him), a radical community organizing con man who Obama himself tried to emulate. 

                              Fact: Margaret Sanger the founder of Planned parenthood main objective was to severely reduce black babies through abortions.

                              The only fiction that exist is the thought process inside your head.
