Donald Trump would like to apologize to anyone he has not yet offended. Please be patient. He will get to you shortly.

Just kidding. Donald Trump, don’t apologize. Every time I think things can’t get any worse, there’s an election.

One candidate tells us how good things are and the other tells us how bad things are, and we know they are both lying. While Trump wants to go back to unregulated, “too big to fail” Wall Street banks, Hillary wants more regulation. Lots of luck to both of them in finding the bank accounts of the wealthy to give the tax cuts to, or to tax them more. Most of them have offshore tax havens and inverted company offshore non-taxable bases and haven’t been taxes in years.

Tax cuts for the rich won’t create jobs or bring them back to the U.S. The rich loves “get-rich-quick,” “cheap,” “no rules,” “no liability,” “slave labor” -- they can fire at will or if injured. If the students of Trump University who are deep in debt and have no job or incomes win their case, will all college students with big student loan debts also be able to recoup costs if they can’t get a job?

Anyway, be sure and vote. Eight years of a hung Congress is enough.
