I would never use Chase Bank for anything, that's why I go to a bank which is independently owned, out in the country, and they have a sign on their front door saying "concealed carry welcomed!"

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

That's your read of the situation. My read is that the guy has made billions of dollars during his lifetime. Have you ever seen someone do something like that without being able to work with other people? We know oh so little about what really goes on in politics. Basically everything we get comes ...
