    Now what? Pretty clear she broke the law in an attempt to disable FOIA inquiries and hide whatever she was hiding from public view. Did I mention she had the Ambassador to Kenya fired during her tenure for doing pretty much the same thing? I like that little detail. Shows real determination on her part. But what now? If she isn't indicted, we have moved into a totally new dimension where outright and provable corruption is permitted by high officials. On the other hand, if she is indicted, we are in banana republic zone where candidates for President are under...

    A predictable consequence of the move to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour will be the hastened transition from human to a more robotic work-force. A photo that went viral this week showed a robot "manning" the take-out window at McDonald's. You can expect to see more of this. Employers will, of course, be pilloried by the usual cast of economically-challenged Marxists in the political and chattering classes as heartless, sexist, homophobic racists, etc., who put profits before people. But the non-economically challenged among us realize that the increased use of robots is a completely rational response of...

    I can remember for years a lot of the talk radio people saying that liberals were "well intentioned, but misguided." That may have been true once, but if it was the case years ago, it is not anymore. Just look at the anti trumpers and their rioting or the black lives matter filth storming the stage at a Yiannopoulis event and you can see what liberals really are today--viscious, fascist, thugs trying to shut down free speech with violence and intimidation. Is there any way that these people can be thought of as "well intentioned?" The answer is clearly NO.

    It's not that she lies, though she does about her Emails, Benghazi, Whitewater, Enabling Bill Clinton, etc. It's not that she's and anti-American socialist worse than Bernie Sanders - she is. It's the thought of hearing her screechy voice on TV, every day for the next 4 to 8 years that I cannot abide. That voice preaching why she is ruling American with a Politically Correct Rod of Iron. It is that mouth taking away our freedoms (like Obama's) almost on a daily basis that I dread. Wake up American or you'll wake up to hear her daily screach.

    This may be getting ahead of things but how would Obama be able to sabotage a Trump administration before he leaves office. Keep in mind that I'm just thinking like a leftist here.

My goal here is to simply brainstorm with the many great minds at FR to thwart this plan that is obviously a foregone conclusion. I think that the leftovers from the Obama administration are a big threat. Although, I think that...

These fanatical women would be willing to inflict great suffering on women, so long as men suffer a great deal more than men....

    Now that Hillary said, if elected (ugh), she would appoint her husband Bill in "charge of revitalizing the economy, because you know he knows how to do it," one has to ask if Bill did indeed create a booming economy when he wasn't chasing interns. Seems to me the Republican Contract With America was enacted during Clinton's tenure, welfare reform was passed after Clinton vetoed it, and the "dot-com" explosion sent the economy soaring. So, then, what exactly did Bill Clinton do to get the economy rolling so he continues to get media credit for his role?

    America is an exceptional nation, and there are some things that can only happen in America. An American couple became so gay, that they ended up straight. First, some background. It is often said that, if you become too left-wing, then you are going to end up as a right-winger. The best example is Caucescu of Romania. Romania was a nation that allowed tax-payer funded abortion in 1945, without restrictions. This made the economy and military power of the country weak. Caucescu later criminalized abortion and contraception in the 1960s, and this improved the economy, so far as communist standards...

    I'll start out with a few facts as I know them. First, that men who undergo sex reassignment surgery or that label themselves as transgendered but haven't begun the procedure, are overwhelmingly attracted to women. Second, that men who have undergone the procedure are no happier as women. Third, that behaving as a transgendered male will dramatically decrease the likelihood of getting a date with a woman or becoming intimate with a woman. So, if you allow a confused, perhaps embittered, sexually frustrated male easy access to the ladies' room, will that increase the likelihood of sexual assaults? I think...

It's getting to the point now that not believing this will make all that oppression, misery and death an absolute inevitability. Whatever you think about Obama and his origins, he has weakened America significantly. He has piled on 2 trillion dollars in debt to an economy that is being artificially propped up. If it were...

    Anyone else think Kasich must have had a gentlemen's agreement with Trump? Why else would he stay in the race for weeks/months after it was obvious his polls weren't going much higher? Though he didn't have much hope of winning, his staying in divided the "not Trump" vote, siphoning valuable votes and momentum away from Cruz. Just my two cents. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Kasich as the VP nominee, especially since he could deliver Ohio in November.

Perhaps, but (look them up) his stances on the issues have a big overlap with conservatism. More than Romney or McCain ever had. "He doesn't mean it" When the media went after him for his positions he still stood by them steadfast. Most republicans would have caved under such pressure. Trump did not. "His past is...
