A well sourced @emptywheel examination and question: Why does an accountant making over a million a year need to cheat on his taxes? Why did his huckster boss and immediate family support this criminal ecosystem rather than pay and deduct larger salaries?…
The Brokeass Billionaire: "In 2014, (Trump) paid a combined $79.7 million for large golf courses in Scotland and Ireland. Since then, those clubs have lost money while Trump renovated them, requiring him to pump in $164 million in cash to keep them running"…
I met a yacht broker who told me a great story. A wife "renovated" a yacht using hubby's money for $12M and divorced him when it was done. The contractor secretly kicked back most of that money to the wife and just looked busy. Does Trump hire people who kick back money?

Palast gives feminist trailblazer @LilaGarrett her award from @KPFK. Lila was the first American woman to write, direct and produce a TV series, and wrote your favorite episodes of #AllInTheFamily and #Bewitched.
@LilaGarrett @KPFK At 93, @LilaGarrett's still the passionate radical "Katie Morosky" that @BarbraStreisand portrayed in The Way We Were — the true story of Lila's college years, and is still fighting the "a**hole fascists" via her @KPFK Radio broadcast #ConnectTheDots.
@LilaGarrett @KPFK @BarbraStreisand Lila also stood with my uncle Oliver Crawford (#StarTrek) on the Screen Writers' Guild board fighting the Hollywood Black List.

1. A personal story, and some historical analysis inspired by last night's #AllInTheFamily. From 1975 (age 7) to 1979 (age 11) I watched almost every episode, and often in unique circumstances.
2. I have vivid memories of sitting on the floor beside my grandfather watching All in the Family. He would be smoking his cigar in *his* chair to my left. My grandmother would be knitting (and probably dozing off) in *her* chair to my right.
3. My grandfather was a Republican in the 1970s. My parents kinda resembled Mike and Gloria. They had been in college in the late '60s, embraced the counterculture, were decidedly not Republicans. Like many young viewers, I lived the generational tension that the show depicted.
