  1. I believe the pithier question is, does it matter? Or have we reached the point where right and wrong, legality and illegality, morality, ethics or even practical results have any bearing. It would seem that the Clinton’s response to any of this is “Well who do you think you’re going to get to prosecute us?” knowing full well no one will. The political class tends to its own and the voters, citizens and others are unperturbed by all of this. In fact you get the distinct sense from Hillary voters that they’re almost proud of Hillary’s nose tweaking, trolling and daring others. There were, after all a few instances where the Roman army sold the Emperorship to the highest bidder. We’re approaching that.

  2. I’m back at “greater fairness and shared sacrifice.”

    AKA “more government programs and higher taxes.”

  3. $2.5 billion divided by the US population, est. 325 million, = $7.69 per person. What could go wrong?

    $2.5 billion divided by 2012 US actual voters, est. 129 million, = $19 per person. What could go wrong?

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    Hillary is just a minor variant of Will Rogers. She never met a filthy-wicked-evil deal… she didn’t like!

  4. It reminds me of the various gangsters in history that have garnered populist appeal by handing out turkeys at Thanksgiving. Robin Hood – sell “steal from the rich and give to the poor” but in practice, steal from everybody and give to me. I don’t think Alinsky had this in mind for his fledgling socialist reformer but admittedly, my knowledge of history is not comprehensive.
    It’s ironic that Clinton quotes Julius Caesar, the man who put the final touches on the fall of the Roman republic.

  5. Why Hillary doesn´t provoke an enormous laugh in United States is beyond me.

    All her contradictions are big rippe fruits wainting to be picked up by the cartoonist.

    Hillary, ma chère, tu me fais rire, mais rire……

  6. Overpopulation,Immigration,unemployment,debt,unbalanced trade, the southwest running dry, the European Union splintering, China and Russia imploding while they arm to the teeth. Is there a forced “” western spring”” coming for the USA and Europe? With the nature of Power to divide and corrupt, the solvable problems facing the Globe are unsolvable. The wheat and the chaff…

  7. 2006 China corporate debt: 4.3 trillion. 2014 China corporate debt: 18 trillion. USA debt from 8 to18 trillion in 8 or 9 years. From “” Lawrence McDonald convertbond twitter””.

  8. i’m old enough to remember when ” liberals ” called nixon a crook. they’re not liberals anymore. and this country is in serious danger.

  9. Back in ’92, the Clinton’s ran for President on the meme of correcting the “greed and corruption of the ’80s”. Of course, they were well versed in the “green and corruption” back then as well. Hillary was smack-dab in the middle of the S&L mess too. The only difference is that this time, they get to run as omni-millionaires. Of course, another promise of “the most transparent administration in the history of the republic” will ring a bit more hollow this time, but as Hillary would say, “What difference – at this point, does it make?”
