    Wasn’t that a bit spooky when this troll ran for President? At least Willard has a nice haircut.

    Trust Funder with nothing new, just Captain Obvious telling us what we already know.

    Just a globalist lap dog yapping in the breezes of a world passing him by.

    Love Forbes Magazine. It’s so dynamic and inspiring. They celebrate small business, the engine of our free enterprise economic sector, the people who are innovative, take risks, create the over 80 percent of the country’s jobs–a number that has shrunk from over 90 percent of the jobs created by small business, thanks to the growth of the bureaucratic, unaccountable, wasteful, and arrogant government sector.

    You folks who cast aspersions on a man because he’s rich, not because of what he stands up for, remind me of the cops in Star Wars saying move along people, move along, nothing to see here.

    Martha, he is rich b/c of his birthright, not because he is some messiah on business. He has said nothing in this short interview I have not been yelling for the last 8 years. Without being born to the right parents he would be flipping burgers at Mickey d’s.

    He may have started off rich but he has remained rich which means he has made the right decisions. If you dont think that means anything, take a look at lottery winners. Most end up poor again because they dont know what they are doing. We need people like him in govt who know how to run a business because in business you make sure you are not going to lose money, like hum uh this stupid state that thinks it has an endless supply of money to spend on an endless supply of stupid hand outs.

    Why do cubicle workers love yacht owners and country club groupies. Maybe Stevie can sell you some AIR FORBES in pink or vermillion, so you shoot hoops at the local Ann Rand municipal gym.

    California is in a deep hole, with nothing but more taxes, regulation and union dominance of the government workforce and schools, as far as the eye can see. Good luck with that Greece and California.
