You won't last long here.
"Entitled to a $15 hour wage"? Are you serious? Someone obviously works for Walmart.
Let's have a discussion about that "entitled $15/hr wage" shall we?

Tell us why you are against it. You are against people working FT and actually making a living from their job? You sound like a corporate puppet spewing crap, a staunch defender of the anti labor movement and how people should pull up their boot straps and work for pennies so the man can make a profit.

Guess what? Wages have fallen over time and it's BOTH Dems and Republicans fault. You're candidate, Hillary, has always been in the pockets of the 1% and as such, can't even defend a living wage.

You're no Dem when you can't even defend a Dem ideal and instead have to chastise people who are struggling like hell to make it in this country because of people like YOU.

Of the investigation into her email server and the Clinton Foundation. She was arrogant, and reckless with our national security. She will never be allowed to be President.

This is an FBI investigation and a State Department audit that essentially found Hillary to be a liar, and someone who refused to follow proper protocol. And it was initiated by John Kerry. If he believes there is something to this, I trust his judgement.


What we know for certain:

Hillary used an insecure Microsoft server

For a long time, it failed to use basic security measures such as encryption


This means that there is no doubt it was hacked by the Russians, Chinese, Israelis, and God knows who else.

We also know that Hillary lied about it, told the rest of her staff to lie about it/not discuss it, and she carried on doing it even after she was told not to.

This is serious and it's not going away. Hillary is finished.

With all due respect, if you're "bored" of hearing about the emails or think this is like Benghazi, it's because you lack the technical expertise to understand what this is really about. Either that, or you're just a True Believer who will defend Hillary no matter what.

And I've read the articles. Some say it's a huge deal, and some say the equipment was old and everyone did it and it isn't a big deal.

I don't think it's going to amount to anything. That isn't because I am a "true believer." I'm not anti-Hillary, but I'm not a fan either. I prefer Bernie. It's because I've seen this kind of thing before and it rarely amounts to anything.

It's a big deal. "Everyone did it" is not an excuse, and it's not even true. Only Hillary thought the rules didn't apply to her and therefore she needed her own private email server in her home.

She shouldn't have done it, but it's very unlikely that it will affect either the primary or the general election.

And the backing of their own party. They're the ones pulling the strings.

Whether Trump should be allowed isn't my call to make. Personally, I want Bernie.

When you are posting that your candidate beats the other one because she won non-binding primaries...the prior held belief in "inevitability" seems shaky.

It may even be the depression stage though- depressed over probable loss of bonus check.
