I'll take my lock without a ton of complaining

But being locked for posting another DUers post to your locked thread, Verbatim, without adding a word of my own sucks-I was never told repeating someone else's EXACT words-and attributed-made me responsible for a juries perception of them.

OK-I'll put it here-Hillary Lied about coming under fire...

"Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday she made a mistake when she claimed she had come under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996 while she was first lady.

In a speech in Washington and in several interviews last week Clinton described how she and her daughter, Chelsea, ran for cover under hostile fire shortly after her plane landed in Tuzla, Bosnia" snip

"In a speech in Washington on March 17 Clinton said of the Bosnia trip: "I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."

"
She also told CNN last week: "There was no greeting ceremony and we were basically told to run to our cars. Now that is what happened."

video of the trip, showed Clinton walking from the plane, accompanied by her daughter. They were greeted by a young girl in a small ceremony on the tarmac and there was no sign of tension or any danger.

Has dick shit to do with a primary but a ton to do with character...

Hillary Clinton lied about coming under fire in a war zone...

Hillary's E-mail defense...

She did absolutely nothing wrong and the republicans did much more of it...

BLM or M*A*S*H???

Sir, I think the Chinese have captured Major Houlihan.
I see.
So naturally, you shot Captain Hunnicutt.

Where does the rancor and name calling begin?

Before a candidate even announces a run those who support him are called pushers and hypocrites(They're Lying Partisans!). They are guilty of wishful thinking(They're Delusional!) and anyone supporting him is walking into a trap (They're Stupid!).

This tells me much about what drives the division of DU.

NINA-no Irish need apply

How can I, as an man of Irish descent, negate both the overt and covert bigotry directed towards those perceived as "less than white" when in fact just 150 years ago my people were so perceived? As a minority Catholic who has seen discrimination, no matter how mild, how could I ever belittle the slights perceived by another minority group? I cannot...

My life has been so relatively easy and their's so hard it defies comprehension. I am assimilated and accepted. I post this here because as a white guy to post this in any protected group would be presumptive. White privilege exists as does male privilege and I accept i have gained by both.

To those of another race or gender please accept this-I may be mistaken at times, but I am never malicious. I read and try to absorb what I see in your separate forums. I am old but the future I want is better. Please know *I read all that you say.

Deregulation, Lease Truckers, and Uber

It's all the same deal just downsized from 18 wheels to 4. When trucking was deregulated thousands of people bought or leased road horses and made big money for 2 or 3 years...then deferred maintenance caught up to them and they went bankrupt.Back in reality world responsible people running fleets were running programs that changed oil and filters real quick and expensive stuff like injectors, pumps, and turbos by mileage and never waited for them to fail. The numbers showed we won and made a profit. The bankrupt "independent" truckers were caught time and again by equipment failure which was catastrophic. This is going to happen and soon to Uber drivers when their equipment grows old.

This is what happens when you deregulate-it is a republican dream and gives a short term decrease in price. But long term who wants to ride in a junky Subaru? In time, and if you make it cheap enough it will fail. And half of our politicians like it that way...

There was an earlier post titled "Hillary Clinton Called People on Welfare "Deadbeats"

And a response was posted reading "Was this post intended on bashing or smearing Hillary Clinton? I have seen posts saying this is not
happening, maybe I misread this one. Bookmarking for future reference".

The actual quote was actually more damning-“Now that we’ve said these people are no longer deadbeats—they’re actually out there being productive—how do we keep them there?”

Read that again-"Now that we've said"? Imagine just for one moment how you would feel if you were Rhonda Costa and that was how the wife of the President of the United States described you-"no longer a deadbeat"...

On what twisted, bizarre, foreign planet does an exact quote given to the press from the wife of the president after six years of experience with the national press corp become a smear rather than something we call "her record"?

On prisoners and hostages in foreign lands...

...not to be unsympathetic but a large majority of these people put themselves in harms way. From the PTSD ex-marine who crossed the Mexican border with illegal weapons, to Christians passing out bibles in China, and onto "tourists" wandering into hostile lands for suspicious/clandestine/idiotic purposes.

Now every time we seek to free one of these people it seems to involve the valuable time of US senators and representatives or highly placed State Dept. employees and often the use of US Air Force transports and sometimes even the irreplaceable time of our sitting President. Often the politicians on the right wing even advocate war as a response and damn the cost-an American is being held...

My question is this-why is it we can't raise SS benefits to save millions of Americans who have done nothing wrong but we can spend millions or even start a war to save a handful of Americans who put themselves at risk?
