Does Trump really have a wig? I always thought it was fake, but multiple people have told me it wasn't.

I suppose that's the point of it. He's just trying to make Obama look bad in some way by randomly demanding that he release some inconsequential documents. If Obama does it, he'll find fault with something, even if it is something completely trivial, or even accuse him of faking it. If Obama doesn't do it, he'll accuse him of hiding something.

It's a bizarre ploy. I'm curious to see what Gloria Allred is trying to top it with, there was some rumour that she had something about Romney. Probably just as nonsensical.

If there have been no scandals, they must be manufactured. We've gotten to the point in this country where we get suspicious if our leaders actually start to look too much like decent people.

I think his point is that all candidates, especially for president, ultimate do run off of the loads of money being thrown at them by rich people. But its in the form of donors to their campaigns. The application of the funds may be different, but both sides are taking the money of rich people in an effort to get them what they want (which is particular candidate to win the election). It has less of a 'gimmick' attached to it, but the concept is pretty similar.

I assumed it's real, only because were it fake I'd think it would look better. But I saw him in an interview once with Megan Kelly I think, and she pulled on his hair and said it's real.

I suppose you could view it the way you describe above, but we're talking about $5 MILLION dollars, and for charity.

For something as trivial as your college transcripts? Really? So I fail to see what the big deal is if there isn't something to hide.

My best guess is it's something like maybe he got a C- in economics and doesn't want people to know, but I think there is something to hide or his college transcripts wouldnt be as protected as nuclear launch codes. The Clintons have some of the best, dirtiest, research people in the biz, if even THEY couldnt get those suckers, aint nobody.

Already leaked that it has to do with the value Romney put on Staples shares for a valuation of estate during a divorce proceeding. Aldred is just a horrible, horrible human being. Worse than Trump. I'd like to see a steel-cage death of those two for charity.

Exactly (which is why I thought maybe he was being sarcastic or funny, but I wasnt sure).

Well, one non-sinister reason I can think of for withholding the documents is because he doesn't want to dignify what is essentially Trump trying to strong-arm him into releasing private records. I know it's ostensibly for charity and all, but I suspect that Trump doesn't really give a **** about charity, he just added that detail to make Obama look bad if he refuses.

And of course, if Obama caves to it and does it this time, some other copycat crackpot will come along and challenge him to release something else and we'll keep having these silly distractions. It sets a bad precedent if the President can be "extorted" like that in the court of public opinion.

I understand he's running for public office, but a college transcript is pretty private. Most people would prefer to keep personal details like that out of the public eye. I don't believe this is something that falls under the Freedom of Information Act, so why should Trump be able to access it because he waves around $5 M?

Except that's exactly how Trump got him to release his long-form birth certificate. So it's not like that hasn't already happened.

Of course. Greg Gutfeld coined a great term for this today, "Philanthropic Extortion". That's the douchebagger genius of it all, because it does make sense. If you've nothing to hide at all as has been claimed, give the $5M to a good charity.

As much as it would be nice to see Obama take up Trump on his suggestion, it would make him look weak. He's not going to do it.

Well, that's what Trump claims happened. I think his ego is causing him to take more credit for that than he deserves. And in the end, the President releasing his birth certificate did nothing to convince the people that Trump represents. Plenty of the "birthers" don't want to let go of their stupid conspiracy theory and think he faked that birth certificate too, even if they are provably wrong.

This is why I think the "birthers" and "secret Muslim bent on destroying America" folks are so stupid: If radical Islam wanted to (or even could) put up a controllable "Manchurian candidate" for office in the US, would his name be Barack Obama and would he be mixed race? Hell no, his name would be Mike Johnson, he'd have blonde hair and blue eyes, and he'd be from Independence, Missouri.

The books or the films? Take it up with Tolkien, he wrote it that way and they stayed pretty faithful to it in the films.

I still find it interesting that fans still provide fixes to the book in small mistakes that he made, and contacts the family, and that the family still has a governing body to make said changes. Shows how deep of a following they have.

That's pretty much how all conspiracy theorists are. If you prove they were were wrong about X, they point you to Y, prove Y is wrong, they point you to Z.... never ends. But the president and his people are also to blame, because they allowed the "birther" movement to grow and intentionally fueled it by not disproving it immediately. They did so because it was "good politics" for them, only releasing it once it became "bad politics" for them.

This spins back to another reason why people speculate Obama oddly refuses to release his college records. Some think that even though he was in fact born in Hawaii, he lied to the various colleges to gain easier acceptance as a foreign student by claiming he was an international, thus abusing diversity metrics.

Playa del Carmen is awesome however. Bumped Punta Cana off the #1 slot by a narrow margin. The fact the resort had it's own water treatment and purification system to take away the water issues swung my vote. Plus the beach was better - white sand and full service not just at the pools but clear down on the beach. Every 5 minutes someone came by asking if you needed anything. Unexpectedly great service.
