Scare Adds to Fears That
Clinton’s Work Has Taken Toll

New York Times, by Mark Landler

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/5/2013 11:45:29 AM

WASHINGTON — When Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton fractured her right elbow after slipping in a State Department garage in June 2009, she returned to work in just a few days. Her arm in a sling, she juggled speeches and a trip to India and Thailand with physical therapy, rebuilding a joint held together with wire and pins. (Snip) But after a fall at home in December that caused a concussion, and a subsequent diagnosis of a blood clot in her head, it has taken much longer for Mrs. Clinton to bounce back.

Unless, of course, this last "accident" didn´t happen at home, but rather in a plane headed for Tehran to negotiate some abysmal nuclear agreement with Ahmadinejad...just saying...it´s still out there.

Ohhh, poor baby. I certainly won´t waste any time worrying about her. I just hope she falls again and get some sense knocked into her. Like, DO NOT run for president. After obama I cannot imagine her sitting in the WH. But the American voter is so damn dumb I can see it happening.

What a load of crap. Works hard, yeah right, and look at the trail of chaos and destruction she leaves in her wake as she jets around the world at taxpayer expense betraying our allies and cozying up to the muslim savages in the Middle East.

This pantload is really the Secretary of Disgrace. She has the blood of our brave Seals who were murdered on that rooftop in Benghazi. She should be in prison.

On the face of it it sounded like she contracted a stomach virus (usually called "Montezuma´s Revenge") which left her dehydrated - diarrhea can do that - and weak. She fell. The blow caused a subdural hematoma behind her ear.

Not very zingy but it does seem fairly plausible.

Perhaps there IS something Americans can agree on after all.

Hillary has done enough. She has suffered enough - and we have suffered enough. It is time for her to retire and concoct her memoirs. Give the lady a gold watch -a cigar, too, if she likes- thank her for etc. etc. etc. and let her go.

Pay her a generous stipend to go away and stay away, to be quiet and leave us alone. It would be worth millions. Who could begin to put a figure on such a thing? It would be a bargain at almost any price.

And it just might start a trend: Americans could buy out annoying politicians and public figures, i.e. pay them to go away and keep quiet.

Hillary-haters and bashers always ask: What is the big deal about this woman? What has she ever actually done? Why does she matter? Why should we care?

They miss the point. The point is that she is Hillary Clinton. That is why she matters. That is what she has done. That is why we should care.

Hillary Clinton is Hillary Clinton in the same way, for example, that Kim Kardashian is Kim Kardashian. They are celebrities. They are who they are. Who they are is what they are and why they matter - or why they should matter.

It is quite useless and beside the point, therefore, to grumble and rummage through her record demanding proof or documentation that she has ever actually DONE anything significant or meritorious. What she has done is to be herself.

She is Hillary Clinton. That is enough. (It may be too much - but it is certainly enough.)

Makers of a film on abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell say the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter singled out their project for special objections. They have ankled the massively popular platform in favor of another crowdfunding site. Ann and Phelim Media have raised nearly $200,000 in five days on crowdfunding site Indiegogo for a planned movie about Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted in 2013 on a host of charges including multiple illegal late-term abortions, hundreds of violations of Pennsylvania’s informed-consent law, and three counts of murder.

While researching how public libraries became a popular spot for weirdos to go and watch porn (especially child porn) on free, untraceable WiFi, I discovered something truly hideous. There is an entire community out there who film themselves masturbating in libraries (usually while watching porn on publicly funded WiFi) and then upload these videos to porn sites. People are making porn in public libraries. Don’t take my word for it; go to any porn site and type in “library” in the search function (preferably on your own WiFi at home where there are no children present). But I warn you, it’s

When my mother was my age, she was working full time while raising three small children, and she spent every spare moment studying to finish a graduate degree. My father was working extremely hard as well. Between the two of them, they were able to provide their kids with a solidly middle-class life. But it wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t always fun. So now, as a childless professional in my mid-30s, I often reflect on the sacrifices working parents make to better the lives of their children.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
