    One might guess selling used cars or renting apartments to hard-to-convince tenants from the polished salesmanship and public speaking skills we've seen.

    I seriously doubt you'd want to BE one of them, even so.

    Anyone know if by this date HM Passport Office has for-sure used-up the "UK-EU" blanks and moved-on to UK-only ones?

    Lehman Brothers triggered the global financial crash in 2008.
    The US EU UK were all relatively stable politically at this time.
    If Deutsche Bank imminently crashes with all the political fragility, what could happen might make 2008 look small fry...

    Actually yes.
    Girls sports are subsidized.
    Title IX - Wikipedia

    The result is that schools need to make sure the money is there for girls athletics.
    Prior to that there was very little girls sports.
    What’s more athletic scholarships now go to young women too.

    From my POV I see very little of their life I’d want.

    Hear yah. Far more profitable to have been McKenzie Bezos, yah?

    Mind - you might have had to work harder at getting the job.. but at least yah have the boolsheet skills well-developed, and "right here on PM".



    Anyway.. while the entire Trump "empire" is small-change as global "players" go... it makes no never-mind to us chickn's, does it?

    I never HAVE figured out how to spend some other Pilgrim's paycheck without doing the most unthinkable of pre-versions.

    Voting Socialist!

    . so as to gain the promise.. be f**ked out of the actual delivery (as usual) ... but be rewarded with the right to don the garb of a perpetual loser so I could whine for the rest of eternity that I'd been screwed out of life itself by "the rich".

    Think I'll pay my own damned grocery bills and stick to Virginia wine. In bottles.

    Doesn't cause cancer as Kalifornikyah wines proudly claim to be able to do.

    Then that one man would need to STEAL the excess of those labors for his own benefit in order to full meet the definition of capitalist.

    Anything less is socialism, communism or altruism.

    And to the romantic notion of the "industrious child". Merely a family member, indentured by birth. Sure there is love respect and mutual benefit, but the "capitalist" comes to play in that the childs contribution is "excess production" out from the family unit. This excess is then taken from the youthful individual to the benefit of the Matriarch or patriarch. Call it natural socialism if you want. I mentioned that I thought as much when the societal unit is small enough. Like a family
    Owning the means of production is capitalism.
    Whether it’s 10 thousand shovels and a legal system, or a backhoe.

    If a worker is not allowed to keep at least a portion of the surplus the system stratifies and becomes feudal.

    More profitable to have called a decent broker and just faded into the woods.

    Just check for the "Lego" trademark... and the "Three Little Pigs" fairy tale.

    Based on whom it houses, it would have HAD to have been built to stand high local winds, so the brag is just a cost reallocation scheme.

    You are showing your lack of knowledge of the English language,there is no letter T in the compass point you are referring to. It is Souf Eas Lundun.
