Re: Trump fighting losing battle?



If you are going to participate in a "big store confidence game," it is far better to play the role of one of the low paid shills than to be one of the trimmed marks (i.e. a lop eared mark or otherwise). In the end, the always ironic W. C. Fields was quite correct when he said, "you can't cheat an honest man."


You can, however, offer a pitch to millions of suckers who once sincerely believed they were getting something for nothing because someone else, other than themselves would end up paying the final bill (ref: The Sting, 1973, w/Robert Redford, Robert Shaw and Paul Newman)
