    Family is vastly more important than money!
    Being loved is being successful.

    • Is that Chump’s problem? Daddy didn’t love him enough? None of his wives really loved him, they were all about the benjamins? But surely the daughter he lusts after loves him? Ivanka is the only one of his children (inc. Barron) that I think Chump would actually fall on his sword for.

      Mostly, you can have my family.

    • Make Racists Afraid Again If you’re lucky enough to have family, that is. I have no spouse, no parents, no kids, no siblings, and no job. Not a lot of reasons to live. My cat doesn’t even like to be held. You are more fortunate than you realize.


  3. This is how Trump see success.
    Trump: “Yeah, that’s her, with the gold. I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do whatever you want. ”  “Grab them by the p. You can do anything.”

    If anyone’s ever seen the old movie “The Heiress”, one can be very wealthy, yet incredibly poor in that being unloved, used, lied to, cast aside. Sometimes “success” brings living nightmares. :/

    My 3 yr old will say, “We love the trees. We love water. We love the toys. We love the puppies. We love the table. We love the wall. We love the colors. We love the swing. We love the sky. We love the bugs. We love the toons. We love the sun. We love…..etc.”

    We take our lives for granted. Just being alive — is a very rich privilege.

    The anxiety and stress that Trump has brought has almost killed me!

  6. It has become abundantly clear to me that the evil Republican leadership in the Senate (and those in the House who are not in leadership positions) promised to reward their corporate donors/owners many years ago and finally kept that promise with the tax gift that they pushed through in 2017.

    They knew all along that their corporate donors intended to destroy the middle class by pushing us down into the poor class, leaving us with no power at all to demand decent working conditions or a livable wage. Their plan was to revert this country to a system of slaves and slave owners. As long as they continue to feed their proles with lies via the far right media that has become all-powerful in this country, they will be able to control the slave class’ thoughts and actions. They have found out how easy it is to lie to their followers/voters and maintain their positions of power that constantly rewards them with even more money.

    The corporate executives finally achieved their goal of having absolute power in this country. They were elevated to the title of Slave Owners after paying the sums demanded by the majority of the members in Congress.

      If only working people had some kind of organisation that banded them together so they could collectively negotiate for better wages and conditions. Ah well……..

    • That’s why u go into business for yourself instead of being a tool for someone else, at their mercy. I learned this from friends and it’s done me well. Depend on yourself, not politicians

    A person is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much

    • Mignon Simpson That’s all three is to it 👏🏼

      @David this comes from a poem read at my 92 years old grandmother s funeral Into 1972. I’ve tried to live by that ever since. I’m old poor in money but happy and still loving and laughing. Compared to others I consider myself a success and at peace. Oh yes I’ve lived well.

  11. Marmalade Mussolini is the worst most CORRUPT potus in American history!.

  12. Saginaw MI. What about Detroit where people actually live. Wow what does that tell you about what you should do when it’s time to go VOTE….GO VOTE

  13. America is a moral nation. When not a single person votes for Trump.
    ” It’s not Trump. A country that elects a Trump is already in serious trouble.” E. Warren

  14. Oh, God. 15.4% for character in the best scenario? We are doomed.

    It’s so much easier to be good when you have a full belly and a warm roof over your head. Strange how that works huh ?

  16. We should be able to vote on who qualifies as a news station.

  17. remind them dumpy’s stand on climate change and remind them of the recent natural disasters.

    Success is being the polar opposite of everything that 45* is.

  20. We may not all know what “success” looks like these days, but looking at Donald Judas Trumpsky I know what a stinking hunk of failure looks like.
