Re: “Get Ready for Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention

Hahaha well well well DNC has obviously been exposed for the frauds they always were. All you political types time to wake the hell up. What drives politicians to do anything. It isn't your causes or their morals. Its straight up $$$$. If your denying it then continue on your ignorant journey. EVERY politician is corrupted. Proof you say. Look at every bill they passed or cosigned on or went against. Then cross reference it with companies they own , own stock or family friends that own stock or own. Their finances are undeniable truth of the conflict of interest and corruption. This is because we have no term limits and let lobbyists corrupt our country. Why do you think a Congressional member that makes a salary of $174,000 can increase his net worth minimally by $1.5 million a year?

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

Thinking Aloud

Hillary is every bit as calculating and mendacious as her husband. Or do we simply overlook the millions she has "earned" in super-secret speeches to Goldman Sachs and a host of other Wall Street supporters? People aren't buying into the Perverted Bill scenario; they do see how he has extorted hundreds of millions in speaker fees and favors from the same slime that now support his wife and that's enough. Oh and Trump (despicable as he is) insults women with his moronic diatribes?

The least offensive comment from Hillary while standing by her man was actually a threat to those accusing him of sexual harassment: " “I think we’re going to find some other things. And I think that when all of this is put into context, and we really look at the people involved here, look at their motivations and look at their backgrounds, look at their past behavior, some folks are going to have a lot to answer for.”

Re: “Get Ready for Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention

Clinton does not support TPP "in it's present form." TPP will be signed by Clinton within a year with cosmetic changes and unenforceable restrictions.

Re: “Trans-Pacific Partnership: Grijalva, Kirkpatrick Oppose, McSally Supports

So disappointed in Congressman McSally, this pact is a tool for the corporate elite to take advantage of our own citizens and working poor around the world only to benefit global elitist. Stop TPP at any cost, and get out of other trade deals like NAFTA asap.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

Bill Clinton is and has been an opportunist, most certainly profiteering after he held the office of President. He can get all the money he wants from speaking fees as long as people want to pay him, but I do not like anyone who considers education funds as easy money. Bill's wife Hillary is and has been calculating, methodical and very patient in her own pursuit of this same high office. They have shared interests politically, but they are not the same person. She is not a vain and stupid sexual guy who from time to time considered adult females as perquisites. If Trump targets Hillary because of Bill, it is a false equivalence. But Trump probably will, because Donald Trump is and has been a nasty piece of work.

Re: “Martha McSally Is Not Endorsing Donald Trump, So You Can Stop Asking About It

As far as lie cheating what happened to all the primary in 2008. Where the DNC threw out all of the votes in Florida, Michigan, Ohio. Giving out Obama the nomination. Look at the primaries of this election who voted and if they did what did it matter.

Debra Wasserman Schultz

These previous posts now tell me who todays Archie Bunkers are. Is this our system, mad because the Democrats have done a well terrible shit job in managing. Fixed elections hide administrative directions and point fingers. Finger pointing gives bad media a purpose and reason. And media always goes for the buck to slant corony capitalism to if you have a cause media have a support group. All make money for media who's brand of soap do you use is it green ?

Re: “Martha McSally Is Not Endorsing Donald Trump, So You Can Stop Asking About It

Awkward, considering the Koch Brothers, to whom McSally owes so much, are now backing HRC. Expertise in lobbying for the Military Industrial Complex, to whom she also owes a lot? She has that. Does she represent me well? No.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

The government has always contracted out for services. The private sector does most things more efficiently.
As long as the contracting is properly done and with proper oversight, I don't see any reason to damn it out of hand just because it's got that dirty "profit" word in it.
That said, for-profit education has been anything but well regulated and abuses are rampant.

Sorry Meg P, Hillary has earned nothing but well deserved disrespect.

She's BARELY a better choice than Chump.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

"Yes Clinton should not be involved in this stuff. But Trump University..."

Look Francis (and all Clinton apologists) this is a fifth grader's excuse for ignoring the truth ("I was wrong but Jimmy was worse"). Bill Clinton took $16,500,000 to "trek" to foreign countries supporting a for profit education scam taken down by Obama. That is more, for this single engagement, than most of us earn in 5-10 lifetimes of actual work. Start adding the hundreds of millions in speakers fees and we're talking real money, more than our families earn in the same time period.

There are none so blind that those who will not see.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

Yes Clinton should not be involved in this stuff. But Trump University was obviously set up for the benefit of the students, yeah right. And the Arizona legislature continues to funnel money to on line school crooks, in the name of choice though. One company has billboards all over the state discussing the wonders of on line, for profit, schools.

Re: “Martha McSally Is Not Endorsing Donald Trump, So You Can Stop Asking About It

These are probably the smartest things McSally has said since she's been elected, minus the part where she said that she might vote for Chump.

P.S. to Larry McNeil: I'm sure there are plenty of conservative teabaggers that can teach even HRC and other Dems a thing or two about how to secure their "lying, cheating system rigging emails".

P.P.S. to sgsmith: I could not possibly agree more with your post. It's as if you're reading my mind.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

Of course, my "You think?' was directed at Captain Obvious's struggle to recognize that yes, the Clintons are deceitful, manipulative and hyper-venal. But I agree with you.

The only issue I'm struggling now is my write-in choice or for the first time since '68 sitting this one out. The struggle with the write-in began last night when my favorite senator, Al Franken did a stand up routine while expressing support for Clinton. I had planned on writing in the Franken-Stein ticket with Jill as my choice for VP.

With just over a hundred days until the election I expect to see more surprises: the August Surprise, the September Surprise, the October Surprise and the November Surprise that collectively take out Clinton and leave us with who?

A loathsome maniac taking the oath of office while pundits shake their heads and the Clintons parse the meaning of "landslide."

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

The Clintons have gotten more passes on prosecution than any political figure in history, except maybe for Ted Kennedy. Why are they allowed to break our laws? She is the Democratic party and now they have tampered with federal elections. Bernie should have sued, but now he crawls in bed with them.

Come on voters, put and end to this nightmare.
