Sometimes, Love Trumps Money

Especially when the love is for your land. I'm sure eventually Trump will get what he wants, but it sure is refreshing to see at least one person in this ass-backwards world who isn't foaming at the mouth to kiss Trump's ass.

Real estate speculators and those looking to bottom-feed from them simply don't understand that some people are not willing to give up their land and their homes for any amount of money. I know, I know, it's wacky and baffling in this new age of mercenary interests and raw money-lust, but they still exist: people who value some things more. What is the world coming to?

I particularly love that Trump's trying to play his own family history card here, saying that his mother was born in Scotland and he feels a "deep connection" to it.

Sure, Donald. What better way to show your appreciation for the history of a country that to cover half of it with a golf course? Give us a break. If you really felt such a "connection" to the place, you'd realize that the place you called "disgusting" is actually pretty typical for a crofter's land. Rusty tractors? So what, as long as they run? These folks aren't rich and they don't necessarily aspire to be. They love their homes and they work the land to live and provide for themselves and their neighbors, not to impress you and your useless minions. So take your ugly-ass rug and fly it home.

And stop trying to insult everyone's intelligence with flimsy, pseudo-sentimental reasoning. Ain't nobody buying it.

I love it when the rich realize that they actually CAN'T buy EVERYTHING!

That's when they usually resort to bullying...exposing that stuff used to open a torrent of backlash and outrage, but now everybody's so "outraged out" that hearing about these things just elicits a sad, "eh, whattya gonna do?" shrug...so these swells-n-swills rarely have to own up to their actions anymore.
