Can Trump’s taxes show he’s not a grifter? Either way, America needs to know. The last national candidate who didn’t reveal his taxes was Maryland Gov. Spiro T. Agnew. It was later discovered he’d accepted bribes for issuing state contracts. In place of trial and prison, Agnew agreed to resign as Vice President. The entire affair tied up national government for many days, contributing to the fall of President Richard Nixon.
We cannot afford not to be sure Trump is not a crook.
463 was a powerful K-27 “Mudhen” locomotive for the old Denver & Rio Grande Railroad in Colorado, pulling loads that pushed America’s economy. Trump shouldn’t sully that image of 463. He should release his taxes today.
A Trump foundation gave $100,000 to Fisher House, a charity. Will Trump’s tax returns reveal he illegally deducted this as a contribution from his own bank account? Is that why he won’t release his taxes? Washington Post image
We've been soaking in the Bathtub for several months, long enough that some of the links we've used have gone to the Great Internet in the Sky.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right. It's a blog for science fans, to promote good science and good science policy. It's a blog for people interested in good government and how to achieve it.

Some of your views are reflected there.
When people go to Trump’s rallies, the atmosphere seems just like the circus has come to town. The older white male version. They go for the demagoguery, rather than for content. Just like the colosseum in Rome.
There is a common belief that the major problems that the next President will be even more involved with will focus on National Security. Since Trump has offended just about everyone, and he says that he knows more about ISIS than the generals, acts like our Law Enforcement System is in bad shape; he now says that Democratic New York Mayor Bill de Blasio knows nothings about “policing”. He’s Mr. Know-it-All, from “Rockey and Bullwinkle.”
No wonder that the only experts in any field–National Security, Science, Law Enforcement; Public Health, Human Rights, etc–who would have anything to do with him are other ideological demagogues. Besides, who would sign-on to advise someone who doesn’t listen to anyone, cannot comprehend complex issues, and has the attention span of a very young child?
Real estate in Canada, anyone?
