    of course it is but i was able to show it doesn't matter when liberals decide they are going to vote for their guy or woman (ick) if that is the case
    its as real a story as people wanting to call Trump racist all day long
    like i said before Trump isn't something i'd hope for but no way should either of the democrats get anywhere close to that office after BO
    20 trillion in debt and counting enjoy the future

    I like the 3 billion dollar money laundering operation (largest in US history) and slush fund for gifters that is the Clinton foundation.
    The Clinton's would kill their mothers for money...they will do anything. And pretty much have.

    When Bush took office he was handed a very favorable debt trending in the right direction. In fact it was first time in decades that a president took over with such a favorable debt. But he fucked that up with two unpaid wars and handed Obama a debt trending in the wrong direction fast!

    It's unfair to blame Obama for a debt truly fucked up by his rebublican predecessor.

    This debt should be blamed on chasing weapons of mass destruction. All by the hand of a beady eyed Texan.

    Serious shit.^^^^^ that. Of course they arent. What she has done doesn't matter to them at all. As long as there is a repub fuckup at sometime, somewhere, to use as a response.
    It's like Hilary has said, and I quote " Look, the average Democrat is stupid. They are easy to manipulate. That's the easy part".

    Honestly, I just started looking into that the other day. Trying to stay as far away from Hillary as possible. I can't see myself voting for Trump or Cruz though, no way. It really is a shame that these are the "best" people we have.

    Im not even sure that it has named the Clintons but its obvious w the Clinton foundation they are grabbing w both hands just like every president probably has for more than 200 years
    It basically implicates nearly every world leader stashing their ill gotten, sold gains in off shore accounts
    That should infuriate everyone
    They are selling off our interests to the highest bidder like the fucking pigs they are
    And they make all the laws that guide their behavior and will never turn on each other
    When you ask yourself "why would anyone run for president or public office?" its because its incredibly lucrative and its a small club
    There are only two people in this race that live on the fringe of it and that is Sanders and Trump
    Sanders still takes lobbyist money and Trump uses the system to buy them off
    But no matter what anyone says socialism is a failed plan everywhere it has been tried
    And we are 20 trillion in debt and Sanders answer is lets spend MORE!
    Someones going to pay that bill and if you want to know who take a look in the mirror
    Us old farts are going to be gone and what you earn...well feel the bern!

    I'm not sure that it named them either, but I was reading that article that Irish shared about them potentially being involved. Hillary is shady as hell. Bottomline though is that it's politicians doing shitty things, is that really surprising at all? Bernie is just the lesser of the evils for me, but there's a shit ton of evil in this election no doubt.

    Bernie is undoubtedly more earnest and trustworthy on a human level than Hillary, but from a political perspective she'll almost definitely just be an extension of Obama policy wise, while Bernie's entire economic platform seems unfeasible and I can't have capital gains taxes shoot through the roof, as it's directly correlated to my financial future.

    I really don't understand the hatred for Obama here. If we step back, he's done an objectively solid job. Not all of his foreign policy (e.g., use of drones) or domestic policy (e.g., continuation of NSA spying policies) are popular with either the left or the right, but the economy has recovered well under his administration (jobless rates are down to 'full employment.' Even if we don't believe this, the U-6 rate (total unemployed, plus all marginally attached workers plus total employed part time for economic reasons) is currently at 9.8%, which isn't much higher than the average under Clinton and Bush pre-crash; the S&P500 has recovered; the US equity markets are fairly strong despite global economic turbulence; the continuation of the bailout and QE saved the economy, and the former in particular made taxpayers money) and we've seen some positive change in his time (gay marriage, new anti-inversion rules just announced by the Treasury, FCC standing behind net neutrality, passage of the ACA which the nonpartisan CBO has projected has helped to decreased the deficit). Sure, there are still problems with the economy (the median household income hasn't recovered, but it has been on a decline since 1999: https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/MEHOINUSA672N). The labor force participation rate has still been declining, but demographics play a large role here. The latest jobs reports have even seen an uptick in the rate (https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/CIVPART). If you want to see an objective view of job growth over the years, then read 538's job reports: http://fivethirtyeight.com/tag/jobs-report/.

    Clinton is likely to be a continuation of many of these policies, and that can't be all that bad. I know I won't convince anyone with this post, but it's a little ridiculous seeing all the world is ending rhetoric around this.

    I just started flipping a house with my step dad. He's an electrician but a jack of all trades really, does a little plumbing and framing, I do a little contracting work and have done probably just enough tiling to say I can do tile lol. But yeah this is our plan long term so I'd prefer them to stay put (or preferably decline but that's unrealistic and selfish)

    I reactivated Facebook for the sole purpose of watching people cuss each other out due to their political stances. Great entertainment.

    Thanks, yeah it's really time consuming but a lot of fun actually. We're a little over 5 weeks in right now and it's going well. I'm taking a lot of pictures along the way and plan to set up a portfolio or something afterwards, I'll show you guys the results of our work when it's finished.
