For the tenth time, if the Clintons had actually broken the law, they would have been jailed long before now. All the machinery of government and the legal system is at the disposal of Trump and the Republicans. Either the Clintons are completely innocent, or their enemies are totally incompetent, possibly both.

The last eo is the one that concerns me because their is so much potential of abuse by a Democratic or a Republican Leader. This eo concerns me the most. It would be easy to become a dictator under this type of proclamation. I was trying to keep with the spirit of this forum's title.

Gcomeau bite me. I have maintained for many years that Hilary and Bill deserve to be in jail. Quit trying to link me Q Anon so you can marginalize me. I can discredit myself very easily. Thank you very much. Please go back to your home grown herbs because you get awfully angry when you are not lighting up.

You are the typical and willing victim of Project Alamo, in other words an useful idiot.

Ironic, of course, given the Alamo's connection to slavery.

Not the way I'd want to do it but plenty of people run successful companies that way.


In my 30+ years in a business career, I came to the conclusion that one cannot run a successful company without being a petty, vindictive, amoral son of a bitch.

All those descriptions where more or less apt for Bill when he ran the company.

CEOs put on a public image of benevolence because it's good for the business.

First rule of being happy in your job: If your boss can't handle criticism, look for a better boss.

So apparently Trump and Kim Jong Un are now officially friends.

Trump makes a LOT of dictator friends who he really enjoys the company of and speaks praisingly of and deliberately props up the legitimacy of in public.

That is something that really, really, really actually matters as much as the GOP and Trump's supporters try to pretend it doesn't.
