Be Prepared

Here’s a letter to the Washington Post:

The top headline this morning at WashingtonPost.com reads “How Donald Trump retooled his charity to spend other people’s money.”

Give the man credit, for he’s preparing himself in advance to excel at one of the chief missions of the successful politician: spending other people’s money.

Of course, it’s also true – as a Facebook friend points out – that politicians excel also at taking other people’s money.
