It is interesting to look back on previous posts and evaluate their worth in the light of time passed. The strident claims of those think that foreign money looking for a home have had no impact on the property market and even worse some who worship at the shrine of St. Jude the Obscure who claim it's all a Labour plot should read this...

Of course one of the advantages of having high density Chinese ownership is that they are hardly likely to nuke you.

Lock him up! Lock him up!

In the Trump Tower gift shop.

The man is an abomination.

(a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

These are the deploarables who elected Trump.

This is where you go when you enable and encourage white supremacist fascists.

Hey look what you can buy on Amazon

The Bunbury Baker said...

Yes andrei, on Amazon, not in the gift shop at Obama Tower. Where is the connection to Obama profiting from this in the way that Trump turns a personal profit everyday from the WH?

Straws and clutching.

I think you're needed back in Russia - Putin has new instructions for you.

Andrei said...

I think Bunbury Baker in the scheme of Donald Trump's business interests the contribution to his overall income from the sale gift shop mugs bearing his likeness is not a particularly significant item on the ledger - I doubt the annual profit from this enterprise would come anywhere near to what the Clintons get paid for giving a 20 minute speech

One second of a Clinton 20 minute speech.

The Bunbury Baker said...

Andrei, what laws do the Clintons breach when they give a speech?

Can you see the difference between profiting as a private individual and profiting from an office of government? Of course you can't, your buddy Vlad does both.

Trump can sell as many mugs as he likes, just not with the presidential seal. That is a crime. But the Religious Reich refuses to do anything about it as long as Trump hates women as much as they do.

Andrei said...

So I did a little research Bunbury Baker

It appears the gift shop on the Trump Tower was until Mr Trump's election a new stand selling the usual newstand fare, the New York Times, Time Magazine, Better homes and Gardens and so forth

The news stand is owned and operated by one Roger Sewani, a 58 year old New Yorker who in typical American entrepreneurial fashion saw a business opportunity in the wake of Donald Trump's election combined with the serendipidous location of his business premises in the lobby of Trump Tower and ditched selling the New York times in favour of selling Trump memorabilia.

So there you go

P.S. if you wish to purchase the item pictured the link on your post you don't have to fly to New York and visit Mr Sewani's establishment to obtain one, you can buy it on Amazon for US$19.99

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Well done, Andrei. Bunbury Baker won't be able to afford the price. He's a socialist.

The Bunbury Baker said...

Your research is as faulty as your politics. Sewani does have a little shop, but that is not the Gift Shop referred to above. Even it it were, that does not change the illegality, an illegality that would be endorsed by the landlord.

And you still haven't shown a connection between Trump's illegal activities and the Clinton's speechifying.

Adolf, as you should know, all good socialists spend OPM so I would have no trouble getting the airfare. :-)

Glad to hear you admit to being a common thief.

Welcome to the conversation Mr Bunbury Baker. However your willingness to associate your good self with 'Shillary's' descriptive of the 65m Americans who voted for Trump as a 'bunch of deplorables' is arrogance personified and confirmation that both of you lack a certain generosity of spirit ... seems to go with the territory with Socialists although HRC would argue she ain't one of yours (and her assn with big business would tend to bear that out)##.

For me I like the Catholic theological term 'separated brethren' as distinguishing the good guys from the rest ... others may think the old adage that 'if you ain't a socialist at age 20 you are missing a heart while if you ain't a capitalist at 40 you're minus a brain' has merit.a

Whatever, both POVs deserve respect. Debate on the merits is welcome. Mindless invective less so.

Your choice.

Veteran......I think you commented without looking at the link. They are deplorable no question.

Egbut ... with respect young fella ... you miss my point.

The Bunbury Baker said...

Veteran, when did Hilary Clinton describe ...the 65m Americans who voted for Trump as a 'bunch of deplorables'?

As a matter of fact, she used the term prior to the presidential election, on September 9, two months before the election date. Her exact words were We are living in a volatile political environment. You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people -- now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks -- they are irredeemable...

She was right on the money with that.

You claim that both Clinton and myself ...lack a certain generosity of spirit... and yet find it quite easy to use the slur "Shillary" yourself. Pot, meet a big fucking black kettle.

Whatever, both POVs deserve respect.

How does one "debate" with Nazis who want to burn your shop down? there can be no debate with thugs, only a boot to the face.

Debate on the merits is welcome.

Did you actually watch that video? These are the people who support Trump, the deplorables Trump lends credibility to.

Mindless invective less so.

Then please explain your constant debasing of Clinton as "Shillary".
