The Clintons rent a new house in
Hamptons this summer because
the one they stayed in for the last
two years was too expensive

Daily Mail [UK], by Meghan Keneally

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/9/2013 12:50:48 PM

The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges. It should be little surprise then that the Lily Pond Lane home

Please. The Clintons couldn´t get a foreign government to pay for it, as a number of them did for Chelsea´s wedding. Hillary received State Dept waiver in order to receive expensive wedding contributions. He & she are pigs at the government trough.

Sorry but security deposits are to pay for unusal cleaning or damage, doesn´t matter what the NYT says. Normal wear and tear is not supposed to be taken out of the security deposit. My guess is they did the same as they did to our White House.

I guess the Brits don´t know that a security deposit only covers damanges, not utility bills unless they turned the A/C on high and then had fires in the fireplaces like Nixon did.

The place was probably so trashed, the owners didn´t want to take a third hit.

As for their `rented` house, they only want us to think they are being frugal. The Clinton`s pay for nothing. Someone is footing the bill, but not them.

Utilities and landscaping and pool maintenance are usually part of the basic rental fee unless there is a special arrangement with the tenant.

There´s something smelly here. Again. Or in trying to cover their opting for a less pricey place (optics, you know) the Clintons have left open the possibility-probability that they were really bad tenants who gave up a fair amount of that security deposit.

I´d have gone for the frugal optic. And a hundred grand a month for a vacation house is not exactly frugal.

According to the article, it is the custom in the Hamptons to deduct utilities and garden upkeep from the security deposit. Renting a house in New Orleans, I was asked if I was going to mow the grass or if I wanted their yard guy to do it; if so, there would be $50/month extra. I paid all the utilities.

FTA:

´It’s a large house, it has upkeep and it’s expensive — that’s a fact,´ the homeowner Elie Hirshfeld told The Times.

He said that he sent the deposit back ´with of course some deduction for utilities and things like that´ and found the Clintons to be ´very pleasant´.

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"?

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.
