Hillary Mocks Us


I was minding my own business last night when it happened. I went to turn on the television when to my dismay the Democrat Debate came on. Before I could find the other remote to change the channel I heard her say it. Then my head exploded.

Hillary: ‘No One Is Too Big to Jail’

Hillary Clinton said in tonight’s Democratic debate that ”no individual is too powerful to jail.”

In the midst of a skirmish with Bernie Sanders over her ties to Wall Street, Clinton insisted, “There’s no daylight on the basic premise that there should be no bank too big to fail, and no individual too powerful to jail.”

Here’s the full exchange:

HOLT: Secretary Clinton, help the voter understand the daylight between the two of you here.
CLINTON: There’s no daylight on the basic premise that there should be no bank too big to fail, and no individual too powerful to jail. We agree on that. But where we disagree is the comments that Senator Sanders has made that don’t just affect me, I can take that, but he’s criticized President Obama for taking donations from Wall Street. And President Obama has led our country out of the great recession. Senator Sanders called him weak, disappointing. He even in 2011 publicly sought someone to run in a primary against President Obama. Now, I personally believe that President Obama’s work to push through the Dodd-Frank, the Dodd-Frank Bill, and then to sign it was one of the most important regulatory schemes we’ve had since the 1930s. So I’m going to defend Dodd-Frank, and I’m going to defend President Obama for taking on Wall Street, taking on the financial industry, and getting results.

Hillary is just mocking us now.

FYI: I found most of the pieces of my head and glued them back together but I don’t know how I’m gonna get that mess off the ceiling.

    I didn’t even think of watching the debate last night. What I am reading about it this morning, leads me to believe I made the right choice. What a waste.

    • Ann says:

      My husband watched. He kept running into the living room with “is she for real?” updates. I could have lived without the live update commentary – or even knowing there was a debate.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        From what I gather Hillary was clinging bitterly to Obama. I guess she thinks all those people that dumped her for Obama will come back now.

        • DandyTIger says:

          I’m actually shocked at how stunningly bad she is at politics.

        • 1539days says:

          It was really amazing. For years, Hillary supporters kept saying she was running her own game and only tolerated Obama to do her important (but undefined) work as SOS. Last night she stood by her man.

          • cynic says:

            Perhaps she’s being blackmailed by the Obama gang. You praise us and build up our legacy any chance you get, and we’ll keep you out of jail.

    This is great. 🙂

    Unfortunately, there are many Americans that believe this bullshit.

    Let’s see what a writer for the NYTimes says about it:
    “Many Americans probably think the Dodd-Frank financial reform law will protect taxpayers from future bailouts. Wrong. In fact, Dodd-Frank actually widened the federal safety net for big institutions. Under that law, eight more giants were granted the right to tap the Federal Reserve for funding when the next crisis hits. At the same time, those eight may avoid Dodd-Frank measures that govern how we’re supposed to wind down institutions that get into trouble.
    In other words, these lucky eight got the best of both worlds: access to the Fed’s money and no penalty for failure.”
    “Dodd-Frank should have been all about contracting the safety net,” Ms. Bair (Sheila) said last week. “But this was a huge and unprecedented expansion of the safety net that provided expressed government support for for-profit entities. These financial market utilities are the new government-sponsored enterprises.”

      Gretchen Morgenson did some great financial reporting during the last crisis. I will have to start looking for her work again, now that we seem to be entering another meltdown.

    I despise her. Try and pull the gender card on me. She is everything I do not want my little girl to be. Hell I enjoyed Madonna in the 80’s early nineties. I do not want to see her camel toe in leotards at 55. I don’t think any man or woman of a certain age should masquarade as a teen. It’s gross. Grow old stop grasping for youth. It’s tragic. I believe in my little girl. Hollywood stop sending mixed messages. Pull a Kate Winslet say yeah I’m fat I just gestated a human being in my belly. Suck it. Women perpetuate the beauty myth by subscribing to Hollywood wierd youth I remember watching Friday Night Videos in 1984 and this old woman came on. She exuded sex. Old lady my ass she was 45 Tina Turner. For an 18 year old gay boy she was raw. I didn’t know about Ike or Proud Mary. She was an old lady(45 ha ha) that kicked ass from a real place. Individuals that build shallow careers based on youth get bitter when they meet time. Blame sexism. No it is you stuck on a persona of being a kid.
    Hillary and her Lena Dunham crush is repugnant. Her show glorifies eating ass. Wow how avente garde. Pathetic. Juvenile. Girls is available on Prime. I gave it a shot. Gross. I fear aunt Flo stopping by but I love my kid. I so never want to ever deal with sexuality. I will face it I never want her to know shame. I don’t want to hear about dick size but i rehearse all scenerios. I owe her so much. Huge respnsibility I will have to step out of my comfort zone. I want . her to be. My mom and sister were prego at 15. Not gonna happen. Her mom was 18. I have talked to pros. I so want to deny but she is 9 and 10 is when it happens. I have so many fears I have to be open.
    I never want her to be Lena Dunham. My dad is 72 he has COPD he drives evernight for the railroad so he can provide for this little girl. He carries an oxygen tank but he coaches girl’s softball. Many nights baby girl crawls into his bed to sleep. I have wept looking in on them.
    Sunset knows she is loved by many a guy. My brothers are so good to her and then she has me.
    No vacancy for Hillary’s vile war on women pathetic meme anywhere near my brat and Lena Dunham is an insult to women and anyone who cares about an individual that happens to be a girl.

  6. cynic says:

    Isn’t it funny that the Dems are demanding that Michigan’s Rep. Governor resign over the Flint water problem. Meanwhile, nobody in the media or blogs seems to be asking for Gov. Jerry Brown to resign over the disaster in his state. Oh, that’s right, his sister is linked to this story, and the Gov. is a Democrat. I hate the hypocrisy.

    Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency in the Porter Ranch area due to the continuing leak.
    The ongoing gas leak is one of the biggest environmental disasters in the United States since the 2010 BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.


    “California’s governor on Wednesday declared a state of emergency in a Los Angeles neighborhood where about 2,000 residents have evacuated after a nearby natural gas storage facility began leaking in October.
    Methane began leaking from the facility, which is owned by Southern California Gas Co., on October 23. Southern California Gas Co. is a subsidiary of Sempra Energy of San Diego, a company that Brown’s sister, Kathleen Brown, a former California state treasurer, sits on the board of. The California Public Utilities Commission will see that Southern California Gas Co. covers costs related to the leak, the governor’s office said.

    Los Angeles county officials declared a local state of emergency in December, and the Federal Aviation Administration instructed flights to avoid the area, a 3,600 acre expanse, according to The Wall Street Journal.
    Porter Ranch residents have complained of headaches, bloody noses and nausea, …

    • leslie says:

      Yes. The hypocrisy is breathtaking. And most not only do not see it, but when it is pointed out to them, will vehemently support it.
      Great comments, cynic.

  7. elliesmom says:

    Poking around on the FB feeds of young folks I know this morning, I was surprised how many of them had watched the the debate. One comment that struck me was, “Hillary Clinton is irrelevant. In just a few weeks or so she’ll be kicked out of the race just like she was in 2008. Then we can get down to getting Bernie elected. When she talks, I don’t even bother to listen because nothing she says matters. She’s already out of the race as far as anybody who knows what’s important cares.” I asked if she’s “too big to jail”. The responses pretty much asked why would anyone suggest sending her to jail? She just needs to go home.

    I don’t get attacked by most of this group because they know I worked for Hillary. They assume I’m still supporting her. In a condescending way I get a pass because it’s “understandable an older white lady would want to see Hillary win.” They aren’t concerned that Bernie is an old, white guy because he “understands them better than Hillary does”. They aren’t worried Bernie doesn’t have much support in the black community because black people will vote for any Democrat over any Republican. The things Bernie wants will be good for them, too, after he gets elected. This election, for the young folks I know, is an opportunity for them to kick old folks to the curb and get things for themselves. They really don’t see the irony that it’s Bernie Sanders they support.

    • leslie says:

      And when Bernie Sanders says, “I’ll tax the middle class because that’s where the money is”, it is their way of life that will ultimately suffer – IF they become middle class. Of course, these young people may still be reeling from the knowledge that middle class will be unavailable to them. And that may be driving their decision-making.

      • elliesmom says:

        A lot of the young people who I connect with on FB are former students. I remember a conversation I had with one of them when she was still in high school. Her goal was to become an English teacher, and her heart was set on attending Boston College. I cautioned her about the starting salary of a teacher being the same no matter where you went to college, and a highly respected state college or university would allow her to start her career with less debt. She followed her dream of going to BC. She graduated 3 years ago and has yet to find a teaching post. She works in an admin position for about $25,000 a year, and lives at home because the student debt is killing her chances of moving out. Starting salary for a teacher around here is closer to $40,000. She’s convinced if Bernie gets elected, her student loans will be forgiven, and he’ll pump more money into education so she’ll be able to find a job teaching. The students who are married, and at least one of them is in a high tech job, mostly support Trump. They’re living pretty comfortably, but live in fear of someone with an H1B visa taking away the job with the larger paycheck.

        • leslie says:

          They sound a little like those who believed bronco would pay their mortgages, make the price of gasoline less than $1/gal and give them cell phone service for life.

        • DeniseVB says:

          em – I copied this FB post from an old high school friend (and retired h.s. principal) having a similar discussion on this topic and thought of you 🙂

          Indeed, all the little fragile snowflakes are busy living off parental money, and being brainwashed by liberal professors who only present one side of any issue or argument. When I was in high school in Fairfax County, Virginia, I had NO idea what my teachers thought politically. Pro’s and con’s were presented on BOTH sides of arguments, and prepared me to THINK in college. My college professors did the same; if you thought you were going to get points by agreeing with them on an issue, they would immediately play “devil’s advocate,” and argue the other side. All of this kind of discussion was done with FACTS, no FEELINGS. Oh, boo, hoo- these people want to curb the First Amendment. They are truly idiots who cannot think for themselves because they do not have the gumption to use facts in any argument of any kind.

          The topic was comparing past generations on how 18-yr-olds were prepared for their futures.

          • taw46 says:

            I have thought about that a lot. I was the same, could not tell if my teachers/professors were R or D. And, it did not matter! Never believed this country would get to the point of brainwashing children to the extent it has. Those of you have children or grandchildren in school, do you see it? Do you think it is widespread, or just in certain areas?

          • elliesmom says:

            One of the classes it’s hard to find on a high school course listing these days is anything with the word “economics” in it. Whether it’s how the world money markets work or how to shop for your family at the supermarket, it’s glaringly missing. TBH I don’t think any of the history or political science teachers I knew had enough of a grasp of either micro- or macro- economics to teach it without even considering whether they’d be biased in their approach. On the other side, we’re too worried about getting all of the kids prepared to take calculus to have room in the curriculum for kids to learn how to take learn the basics of how to take of themselves and a family. So while I agree it’s important for teachers to keep their political views to themselves, the national curriculum standards already lean so far left, they fall over. A teacher who wants to be “fair and balanced” is already at risk for being perceived as biased. It’s all part of No Child Left Standing.

          • DeniseVB says:

            em – civics is another class sorely needed. We used to get extra credit for volunteering for political campaigns handing out flyers at the polls or going door to door. To this day I don’t know what party our local candidates were a member of. We also did a mock Presidential campaign (at the time JFK and Nixon). Of course it turned out to be more Catholics vs. Protestants because that was a yuuuuge issue with Kennedy 🙂 I still remember our victory chant “Hail Mary full of grace the Masons are now in second place”. And no, the Pope didn’t run our country after all.

            My friend, who I quoted above, is convinced our high school education was much better than most colleges are today. She also thinks the DOE is a worthless piece of sh*t that needs to be eliminated along with teachers unions, give that money back to the states and the power back to the parents (PTA). School Boards feared the parents wrath 😉 I believe that’s how Sarah Palin’s political career started, saw problems with the school, became a PTA president to fix them. Easy peasy.

    • DeniseVB says:

      They haven’t seen the headlines of the WalMarts closing because of the mandatory min.wage ? Those are the jobs young people depend on and they’re disappearing. Also, other companies will simply work with smaller staffs, so teens and other inexperienced people will be losing the opportunity to build their resumes from entry level positions.

    • votermom says:

      My concern is that Bernie is personally weak – I can’t forget when BLM bullied him right off the stage. As the Dem candidate he would be anyone’s puppet.
      May be that’s what the kids like about him.
      And the kids that support him scare me – so red brigade-ish.

      • elliesmom says:

        My mother-in-law was a very sweet woman, and she used to say some people are just too nice to be president. A president needs to be ruthless at times. She thought some people were too nice to be parents, too. 😉

        • leslie says:

          It sounds as though “nice” to her might have meant “weak”. Your mil sounds like she was very sweet.

      • Somebody says:

        A lot of the younger generation supports him. I don’t consider people in their mid to late 20’s and early 30’s to be kids. We have failed an entire generation, they simply don’t understand what socialism is.

        • elliesmom says:

          I don’t think they’re kids either, but they are “young people” to me. Careers that are just beginning to take hold, getting married, having kids, and entering into the housing market. While my generation did all of those things mostly in our 20’s, to me they are the first real trappings of adulthood. Whether young people today are delaying those things because the world we’ve given them requires a delay, or whether part of the world they have has been caused by prolonged adolescence on their part is up for debate.

          • dm says:

            I rationalize the young adult support for Bernie in that they are young to the realities of life, taxes, politics and still hold their ideology as the one true thing that will “save” the world. When my son and the girlfriend were home for the holidays, it was quite clear. He is less liberal than her and he describes her as ultra liberal and by his own admission that is somewhat annoying at times. The border was discussed…she says it is racist. I inform her the law for that was actually passed years ago, but our spineless congress refuses to fund it. I mention the 700 million we spent last year promoting gay tolerance in places like Africa. She says that is a good thing. I agree, except I can’t justify that when our VA is completely broken. When talking about illegal immigration, the son says “well, I can’t legally smoke pot where I live either, but that isn’t stopping me”. I said that’s fine, we all have a choice, just don’t come crying to me if you get busted. If you don’t like the law(s), then work to change them…just don’t go blatantly breaking them. I can remember when I was young being vehemently opposed to the death penalty. Now, after years of being a parent and hearing stories about murderous pedophiles, the thought of someone’s skin sizzling when they are put to death doesn’t disturb me at all. It’s evolution of sorts. What disturbs me the most is their dismissal of other points of view…they have completely given up on the constitution and all that it stands for.

            That’s why you see Obama focusing on high schools and colleges.
            Talk to a college kid vs. one of the same age that is serving the Country in the armed forces.
            You will see a major difference.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I’m wondering how the Democrats plan to unring the bell they rang in the black community when they painted Bill and Hillary as racists. Did working for Obama for one term purge her of her sins and make her worthy of black votes?

      Or will the black community realize they were hoodwinked and bamboozled?

            I saw that! It was myiq’s trigger warning of bamboozled and hoodwinked that made me think of her. Was surprised her name popped up so fast with obama pay my mortgage 🙂

      • leslie says:

        That thought has been plaguing me for months.
        My son’s best friend was on Clyburn’s staff during the time Clyburn initiated the “racist Clinton” meme. Now, son’s friend is out of DC and living nearby. I don’t know what his stance is, but I know his family (and possibly he) strongly support HRC. There must’ve been a miracle that occurred to facilitate that shift in ideology. Did they say “just kidding”?
        My sister is among the “converted”. She now says that HRC is the “best” candidate with the most experience to be the chief executive. she still doesn’t like HRC, but will vote for her anyway.

    I am feeling quite British
    I do not get gay. I don’t comprend why I am supposed to be committed to a group. I spiritually, intellectually philosophically have no inclination to align myself with men in thongs in a parade. That’s me. I do not presume to judge. I am one small person that presumes to own my own thoughts. I am conservative in the sense that I am responsible for my choices. I do not dictate to others. I am pro-life and I make no apologies I think sex clubs are a threat to health. A gay 18 year old runs away to Pittsburgh gets tossed around like a rag doll. Help me I am a self hating homosexual because I don’t think an 18 year old lonely kid should be abused by popper snorting old meth heads.
    I care not about labels. I never took to that button your leap theme. I have so many opinions. My friend Bill scribed to thine ownself be true. I am un pc. I am against gay people creating a kid. I am a hypocrite in away as I got a brat. I got stuck with her. I didn’t go to a lab and say make me a kid. There are millions of neglected kids. Adopt. Argue gay is natural. Fine I have reservations but Ill concede and say god made you gay and then say artificial kids are natural.
    I am too old and tired to fight. Because I struggle with same sex attraction has no bearing on anyone else. I am allowed to believe what ever I want. Gay Nazi’s do not scare me. Gays do wield some serious power in cities. I am such a freak in 1987 I was having a drink near the bus stop. I met this guy who had a ton of banking money. I saw him many times over years. I’d just smile and buy him a drink. Nice guy who bought pros. We chatted one day I went to his home. Schizophrenic sister in his home. She was like a child. I sat with his sister til dawn. I have known this guy since 1987 always spoke and joked. He is sick wealthy but was always into buying the go go boys. I don’t judge. We have spent almost 3 decades talking. I met him n 1987 waiting for a train. His sister died. He asked me to clear out some of her stuff because it would feel better to have someone as whacked and sensitive as my sister donate her stuff. I am whacked but take offense at sensative
    Anyhow my mom facebooked I was going to campaign for Trump. The hate piled on from the gays but my friend wrote simply stand by you.

          Here in Florida, unfortunately not. The mindless have been pandered to by Debbie for so long they vote depending on what MSNBC tells them and who showed up at the gay pride parade. I think Trump would be excellent for the gay community. He’s not evangelical and would make the Republican party tent more welcome for everyone.

          That is good to know.

        • votermom says:

          Thanks Anthony that’s good to know. My gut feeling is that he would get support because he’s, well, he’s Trump, you know? But I wasn’t sure.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Thanks for sharing that info Anthony. I do think Trump is under-polling his actual support because people don’t want to admit they support him, especially in liberal bastions of our communities 🙂

    • jeffhas says:

      well, I for one just think humans are drawn to other humans, sometimes it’s the opposite sex, sometimes it’s the same sex and sometimes exclusively one for sexual contact and sometimes not.

      I just don’t care if you have friendship bro/sister relationships or sexual relationships. It’s pretty clear you can’t procreate without a man and a woman, but why does that mean two men or two women can’t show affection for one another on any level (surface friendship, one-night stand or lifelong marriage).

      So in this area I’m less about calling people ‘gay’ or ‘straight’ or ‘LGBTQ-?’ And just accept that every human is an individual that is drawn to different things, and at different times…, sometimes I like pizza and sometimes I like steak – other times I like milk chocolate and sometimes I crave white chocolate… and sometimes I settle for what is handy.

      I’m just not going to get hung up on a label or put people in a box, and hopefully people will feel free to not be in a box and accept that maybe today they are affectionate with one person and tomorrow they can be affectionate with another – in the same way that I have some friends I’ve had forever, and some friends that cycle in or out, or I haven’t stayed friends with at all… To me the gay/straight thing is more about emotion (affection) then evolution, and you can’t choose the race of being you are, you’re either a Hippo or a Dog or a Human, but not all dogs get along so why should we expect all humans should get along. Every person is unique and that is wonderful in itself – so let them be allowed to freely choose at any time who they want to friends or more with.

      Now, having said all that – when you decide to get married or commit to someone, that is a ‘box’ that you are choosing to place yourself in – you agree to whatever you agree to in the marriage/commitment and if you have kids you have a deeper obligation to carry them through to adulthood… and you better know what you’re doing before you agree.

      I hope I didn’t offend anyone with my opinion, but as they say, “opinions are like a*******….” etc., etc.

      • dm says:

        I completely agree…

        • jeffhas says:

          Why can’t people on BOTH side of the issue just NOT CARE.

          • elliesmom says:

            It’s easy not to care about an issue where one person’s rights don’t infringe on someone else’s rights. That’s sort of where the country was easily headed with same sex marriage. Most people realized the rights of same sex couples to marry hurt no one else, and it was nobody’s business. Then the gaystapo went after small town bakers, photographers, jewelers, and folks who rented out their barns for weddings. I call them that because most same sex couples just went ahead and planned nice ceremonies using vendors who were happy to have their business. But a small group decided those who didn’t want their business would be made to want it no matter what it took to get them there. They got a lot of people who didn’t care before to start caring, and not in the way they wanted. So while I’m all for “Why can’t we all just get along?”, there’s always the question of who goes first?

          • jeffhas says:


            One side says ‘you shouldn’t care what we do’

            Then they turn around and ‘care’ about someone else baking a cake, etc.

            Both sides shouldn’t care… Then everyone can move on to more pressing issues.

    Big happy news today is that the left got Scholastic to yank a book titled “A Birthday Cake for George Washington” because it showed GW’ s cook and niece smiling as they bake the cake. Doncha know they were slaves and therefore never smiled in their lives, oh no, they spent their life weeping and wailing in manacles as they drudged through the President’s mansion.

      Most southern slaves led a more comfortable and safer life than most new WHITE immigrants arriving in the northern cities. I hope this book banning makes it a bestseller !

      I’m so confused, muslims continue to support slavery, yet these same people who want to white wash our history support muslims ?

      • votermom says:

        It’s the banning that annoys me.
        Hercules, GW’s chef, sounds like a talented guy who did long for freedom (he eventually escaped). And Washington acted like a jerk, intentionally circumventing a law because he knew no one would challenge him.
        But now, instead of having a book that might make kids curious about actual.slaves in Washington’s household, he gets erased.

        There was slavery, indentured servitude (for the White people) and there were the poor saps who weren’t under anyone’s control and therefore faced death if they couldn’t make a living. Now, people think freedom to fail is so unthinkable everyone is a slave to the government.

      The reviewers on amazon hate the book–83 percent gave it one star. It’s about “making a cake for Massa.” I think I’ll buy it.

        The first banned book of 2016! Maybe it will become a collector’s item. 😉

        • DeniseVB says:

          Maybe you should do a “very special review” and sell it 😉 This could be a whole new market for you …. heh.

          Speaking of book reviews, dh read Kilmeade’s Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates in almost one sitting, he said it was that good. (he’s a historical non-fiction buff, mostly civil war and other military). And yes, the muslims were sh*theads back then too and very much part of the slave trade. Hey let’s be tolerant!!! Heaven forbid we should ban a book on baking a cake.

    Scathing editorial by Mike Lupica on Ted Cruz. Boy he has ticked off a lot of NYers.


    • dm says:

      Here’s my take…every politician lies, especially when campaigning. I really don’t expect anything less. Every politician has to raise money – except maybe Trump. Read an article by one of New York’s reps – Israel I think – who was describing how from his first day in office, he had to constantly worry about raising money, calling potential donors, blah blah blah. He complained about all of this shit, calling for reform. Interestingly enough, he completely failed to mention Obama – his master no doubt – who initially agreed to rely solely on public funds with McCain, then totally backtracked, had foreign donors, donors named Mickey Mouse, was under investigation by the FEC for his funds – BTW, what ever came of that investigation – who raised a record setting amount of campaign cash…talk about a hypocrite. I realize Cruz is pretty much reviled by everyone both Dem and Repubs – I personally consider that a good selling point, but that’s just me. I don’t agree with everything that he says or any candidate as far as that is concerned. They all have their secrets. He has stood up against the party elite whether that was to garner attention or whatever, he has openly spoken out. So has Trump, which is one of the reasons people are flocking to him. I like Cruz because of his constitutional creds and beliefs. Our current Prez has been referred to a constitutional professor, scholar, etc – he doesn’t understand the first thing about it. He would be the first in line to rewrite it.

      The Daily News hates all Republicans. They must be tired of going after Trump.

    Good 2016 advice from Don Surber (a retired journalist)…Keep your mind open and your purse closed 🙂 Also a shout out to Scott Adams….

    I love this part, “an anonymous benefactor paid for her makeover”. The new and improved Linda Tripp.

    • lildoggy4u says:

      Maybe her benefactor was the generous Donald Trump. We know he hates to see ugly women.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I remember that, I do think it was a cosmetic surgeon who donated his services after the beating she got in public on her “looks”. I even thought it was horrible SNL used John Goodman to play her in sketches….multiple times. War on women indeed !

    I may have to go back to Disney World. They have filed with the FAA to use drones all over the park, Soon you might see Dumbo fly for real. This dragon was not a drone but imagine what they could do if it was. I think we should fly a few around the border area. Might not seem so welcoming.

      Is there a youtube video of the event? Just wondering how DJT addressed a captive, young evangelical audience that also has Bernie supporters? 😉 My bargain Toshiba lets me only watch youtube.

      • leslie says:

        MSNBC covered much of it live. They are getting much mileage from Trump’s events. trump, OTOH, is benefiting amazingly from free coverage by all those news/entertainment channels. It sounded pretty positive when I actually paid attention to it.

    I don’t think there is anything called a gay vote. Marriage is legal a few states have adoption rules. I worry that the Sisters of Mercy might open the door for Sharia. I also think Obamacare was code for privitized Social Security. Imagine the trillions filtered through greedy pricks.
    I was raised Catholic it will always be a big part of who I am. Never going to be dancing half naked on a float screaming look at me.
    I do not want to be judged as a person because others will use my history to inflate themselves. I have a mother, a sister, dozens of aunts, grandmothers,nieces, a grand niece, friends that are female. Hillary represents none of them.
    I pop in to a gay bar if I’m in the area. I will be 49 next week. A shirtless actor boy of 21 doesn’t excite me. I am so old or have been around a kid so long that my urge is to protect. The older I get the less I care about how someone else sees me. I am intrigued by the twins from Desperate Housewives. One of Lynette’s children came out I think it was Charlie Carver. How wierd to be an identical twin and half is gay.
    I am not looking for universal acceptance because of one trait. I am an asshole. I can be blunt. I like Trump. I bet my thoughts on marriage are more to the right than his.
    He has never hid his association with Roy Cohn.
    I am thrilled to go to North Korea or is it New Hampshire to campaign for him. Seriously New Hampshire lacks transit. Place has no big hub. I am excited I hope there are hobbits.

    I’m sad to hear my Congressman (R) won’t seek re-election. He’s really the definition of self-made millionaire (janitor to car dealership owner) and turning down his federal retirement benefits at the of his term. I’ll just repost his email here ….

    An Open Letter to the 2nd District of Virginia

    I write to share with you that I will not be seeking re-election this November as your representative in Congress. With my family in full agreement, we are confident that my season of public service is to come to a close when my term expires next January. When I make that trip home from Washington for the last time, it will be bittersweet. We have been on a remarkable six and a half year journey; a year and a half seeking office and five years serving what I’m convinced is truly the best congressional district in America. Consistent with the pledge I made when I first asked for your support in 2009, upon leaving Congress I will refuse all retirement benefits for which I qualify.

    You might ask, “Why is now the time to leave?” The answer is found in why I set aside all else and sought the office: to build a strong House majority that would check and balance the party that then controlled both political branches of the federal government. With your help we did just that. We have been the driving force that has reduced discretionary spending. Regardless of which party is in control, reducing spending is tough to do and I’m proud of the progress we made on that front. The graph below shows how discretionary spending has come down since I went to Washington.


    I mention that accomplishment because the five-year point of service is, to me, a point of decision: has a meaningful difference been made and it’s time go home, or is serving in Congress a career and the hope is to serve much longer. Given the two alternatives, my belief in term limits, and in reflecting upon what my team and I have accomplished, I am at peace about coming home.

    I’ll miss serving VA-2 and seeing the many friends I’ve made across our district. What a high privilege it is to serve this region, which includes the highest number of veterans, active duty and retired of any congressional district in the country. Our district reflects what to me is the essence of America: diverse, filled with self-reliant, hard-working patriots, committed to community and inspired by faith and love of country.

    Of all whom I’ve met along this journey, none have impacted and meant more to my wife, Teri, and me than our Gold Star families; those who have lost a loved one in service to our country. To each of them, I respectfully say, thank you. Thank you for helping me grasp, as best one can, the profound sacrifice that your loved one and your family made for our freedom. Teri and I will always stand with you in honoring and remembering your loved one.

    It is in the sacrifice of our veterans, and the duty each one of us has to the next generation of Americans, that I find the inspiration needed to fight for a better future. That inspiration, that core unshakable belief in our country and in you, my fellow Virginian and fellow American, will not end with my time in public service. I’m going to keep fighting for our country.

    A full year remains in my congressional term and I want to assure you that my team and I will continue our commitment to providing you with exceptional constituent service. In Washington, I will continue to advance and fight for the solutions that I am convinced will strengthen our country and benefit all Americans.

    I also want to express my heart-felt thanks to my staff. I am so proud of them and I am grateful for their service to you and our country.

    I close this letter thinking of all the times that I have been stopped in the grocery store, at the airport or on a visit to a house of worship and so many of you offered words of encouragement and said, “Scott, thank you for serving.” For that, and the amazing and high privilege to serve you and your families for six years, I will forever be grateful.

    Mindful that I work for you, I remain

    Yours in Freedom,
    (Scott Rigell)

      The Birther movement was started by Team Hills 2.008 and mostly about Obama’s school records sealed because of getting a foreign student bye and loans for Columbia and Harvard. Too bad the media didn’t flesh that out. There’s our “missing link” in the horrible politics of Obama.

      I agree, should have been defined and sorted out with Barry Goldwater but Cruz is an even better case.
