Schedule X? George Will, a well-known Republican oracle, claims that Donald Trump will not release his tax returns because they would show his close ties to Russian oligarchs. Is there a separate tax schedule where you list this sort of thing?
Das Auto: In the US, VW is offering up to $10,000 to those who fell victim to the company's emission level cheating. In Europe it is offering sincere apologies and not a pfennig more – because they don't have to.
Revelations: Under their new head, the DNC (Determined to Nominate Clinton) will avoid emails in order to avoid embarrassing ethical problems. Note that the behavior behind the ethical problems isn't going to change, they'll just try not to leave any traces. Sure the emails that showed the DNC conspiring against Sanders are bad, but worse are those that explain that the state committees got less than 1% of the money raised by the Clinton “joint fundraising” project while the Clinton campaign – either directly or indirectly – got the bulk of the funds.
True To Form: At a campaign appearance at the Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke, VA, Trump was unhappy with the air conditioning, so he has threatened not to pay for his use of the hotel.
Shoe/Foot: The same Clintonistas positive that the unsecured email server in Clinton's basement was never hacked by anyone, much less the Russians, are equally convinced that it was Vladimir's team that managed to hack the DNC server. That's why it doesn't matter that Clinton exchanged classified emails with subordinates on her server.
Noted: The problem with conspiracy nuts is that their limited imaginations.
