    Steeltoe What's my move?

    I don't think celebrity Presidents are a good idea.

    Resident Plarp Just here for the memes, lulz

    I’ll never forget my then-girlfriend browsing through the stack O magazines in the breakroom at university. Never mind that someone saw fit to bring that trash to work. Every_single_cover has Her on it. The contents she said, “offer nothing of value” and that she couldn’t imagine reading the magazine as a forty-year-old mother.

    Well, I married her and she still says the magazine is garbage. She’s my fucking Nostradamus.

    Yep, any notion that she is not a top rate business person is hog wash. Building a brand from nothing aint easy. Maintaining it is even harder.

    Oprah for President. Shit, why not. We have a blow hard in the White House now. Why not another one?

    I guess she may be a good choice if people do not think Trump is narcissistic enough...

    Top rate business person'?? I disagree....kinda....But not for the reason you may be thinking. Did she build herself into a CONGLOMERATE? Absolutely!

    What company did she actually build though other than her own brand? How many people does SHE employ/pay annually? Not really talking about the investments that she's invested in after all her success and wealth either, that may have resulted in her owning a business....ie. her current diet co. business and or current tv channel/personality.

    Without question, she IS successful in what she's done for HERSELF.....but that's not the same IMHO, as creating a business model, employing thousands of personnel, managing it, dealing with the competition, etc. etc... All characters of what I believe is helping him run this country.......BTW.

    If Mrs. Walmart decided to run, I'd give her more cred than some sole TV personality.

    She's a successful business person, she's a celebrity, she build her brand, and her name. Not sure there's a difference. She's just as narcissistic as Trump. She also has no political experience just like Trump didn't.

    I admire the hell out of her. I also cannot stand listening to her or watching anything she's on.

    Not sure how many people she employs directly but it's a ton.

    The Walmart kids currently running the business are good but they didn't build it either did they? I think that was the last generation.

    The Waltons are at least one generation removed from the founder, if not two. Oprah started her own. With no family money.

    I know their name, but if I put Walton these fools would think I was talking about an old tv show :crackup:

    I was pretty sure you did, but there might be more people out there thinking that there is a Mrs. Walmart. :D

    If that happens it would just be a repeat of the last election where most of the country dislikes both candidates. I know I would stay home again. Why can't these parties get their shit together and find quality people? Obviously most politicians are terrible but there has to be a couple of smart ones that we can at least agree are qualified.

    Watching her, Cuban, and Trump would be hugely entertaining, though. :D

    Hell, I have a feeling unlike Trump, Oprah could look at any country messing around and warn them to stop or she'd buy them and shut them down :crackup:
