There's a foolproof way to establish someone's Scottish bonafides: If you never hear them say "I need more time, Captain!" then you know they're not a Scot.

The Clinton Foundation Shuts Down Clinton Global Initiative

"But as soon as Clinton lost the election, many of the criticisms directed toward the Clinton Foundation were reaffirmed. Foreign governments began pulling out of annual donations, signaling the organization’s clout was predicated on donor access to the Clintons, rather than its philanthropic work. In November, the Australian government confirmed it “has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than $88 million.” The government of Norway also drastically reduced their annual donations, which reached $20 million a year in 2015."

I guess it's tougher to whore yourself out to foreign entities, once you no longer have access to the power & influence they want to buy.

I've worked at sites where some of the routine maintenance/cleanup was outscored. Occasionally shite would happen and the service provider might not show. Rather than let things fester, we always took the initiative to handle things until a permanent resolution was found. The picture accompanying this article could never have been taken any place I've ever worked; everyone took enough pride in our jobs to never have permitted our workplace to look like Section 8 housing. One of the differences between the private sector and the public teat, methinks. Could be among the reasons the PO is something like $15 billion in the hole.

Hmm. I've never heard anyone suggest that bacon is hip, trendy, or cool. It's just... bacon. In the same way that sex is... sex. Both are among the more satisfying experiences life has to offer. So go forth and live!

So let it be written, so let it be done.

"...this is Trump; there's no need to make stuff up."

Except that you do, lol. I suspect my loathing of Donnie Douchebag exceeds yours, yet I don't find it necessary to "bear false witness," as our Christian friends might say. Heathens like me just dismiss you as a prevaricator at best, and a liar at worst. False news, anyone?

Or the racist/eugenist Margaret Sanger. Or dodging sniper fire in Bosnia. Or scapegoating Benghazi on a youtube vid, and jailing the filmmaker for a year.

Tis the season when the Dems eat their own: Harry Reid blasts 'worthless' DNC in blistering critique of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

On the bright side, the front runner for DNC chair is an anit-semitic, homophobic, anti-American segregationist with documented ties to jihadi scum. So they've got that going for them.
