I Have A Question
March 4, 2014

A friend sent me this from a small town newspaper near Austin.

I’m here to tell you that property near Round Top is expensive and I think I don’t need to tell you that a six bedroom house with a two bedroom “carriage house” ain’t gonna be cheap to build.

So, here’s my question:

How can a man who has never once in his whole adult life held a private sector job get that damn rich? That man has drawn a government paycheck his entire adult life.

Second, if he’s running for President, why would he want to remind people of the Bush ranch?

Third, he's running for President? Really? Has he learned to read or something?

Can you help us out?
