The ironic thing about being conned is that you don’t know you are being conned until it is too late.

    Article in a Dallas newspaper about how the Texas consumer protection division was about to sue Donald Trump for $5.4 million over Trump University’s multiple fraudulent business practices. Half the money would be used to refund money bilked to students who had been bilked. Attorney General Greg Abbott abruptly stopped them and closed the case. Later, Trump donated $35,000 when Abbott ran for Texas governor.

    Are those corrupt enough powers for you, Hassan?

    IK, I immigrated from very corrupt and semi-dictatorship country. It breaks my heart when I see corruption and authoritative tendencies here. By God, if Obama declares today to do something that may be very dear to me yet he does it by not following laws and process (constitution), I would be against it being done.

    I did not see much of president clinton’s time, but when I got politically aware during GWB time, I was very glad to see people speaking against him for not following constitution in many matters, and I saw Republicans (mostly) justifying it one way or another. So I thought republicans are just like that, but when Obama became president and during last 8 years, I saw most democrats doing same thing, justifying his good or bad. Now same people are turning blind eye to Hillary corruption and entitlement mentality and incompetence, just because she is Democrat. Also establishment of both parties try not to go against each other, otherwise Bush and Cheney should have been jail.

    So unfortunately corruption is bipartisan, and turning blind eye to those matters are bipartisan as well.

    I could care less about Greg Abbott, if he broke the law, he should be in jail, period.
