    Very true, real estate is a cutthroat business.

    Trump is proof that the spirit of PT Barnum is alive and well in America.

    I don't see where he was trying to sucker anyone, I think his general idea is good, expose those transcripts. I think he should just offer the 5 mill as a reward to someone who could "acquire" them.

    Would you release your college records if 5 million were to be given to your favorite charity?

    Only if Trump would pay for the shipping; stone tablets are pretty heavy and take a lot of postage.

    Come November 1st, Trump should sign that check to a charity either way. To me it feels like a pretty dick move to wave something like that around on the condition that your "enemy" does something. Your throwing yourself out there saying you've got this money that you can do good with, but your not going to do anything with it if someone doesn't dance to your toon.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    That would certainly be a nice gesture on his part but he couldn't hit towards doing that now or there would be no incentive for Obama.

    How do you know Trumps not going to do anything with the 5 mil if Obama doesn't rise to the challenge. Here is an excellent opportunity for Obama to do good with "Someone elses money" for basically nothing.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
