I know it's foolish to think of Banks generally as US taxpayers, but in fact, when they pay "fees", to government entities, they are taxpayers. No doubt the money will slush back in from the Government, point taken.

Our military returns to Iraq because we haven't learned from our mistakes, thanks to our deeply flawed world view. that imagines we can impose justice on other peoples. Blaming Bush and his henchmen won't fix that thinking, even though they deserve to be treated as they treated the prisoners in their control. I fear that Hillary Clinton, brilliant though she is, might blunder horribly, might even assist an Israeli invasion of Syria. Bill Clinton's policy led directly to the Iraq disaster. Hillary hasn't changed her thinking.

The rest are plainly cynical or completely insane. Bush doesn't have the anger that now destroys the Republican Party. He isn't a bigot, even if he is not a thinker. He was a disaster as President, but much of the fault should be shared by the nation as a whole. Those who claim to be deceived believed the impossible. We are ready to repeat our mistakes, because we blame the idiot leader, rather than the flaws in our outlook.

We can all agree on one point, George W. Bush remains the greatest mind in the Republican Party. The latest primaries remove all doubt.

The bikes are overpriced and undersized. I ride past them a few days a week, only tourists ride them, and not often. The Kiosk near Chrystal Pier couldn't deface a better location, but they don't rent. The bikes wouldn't be worth $50.00 for sale.

Developers rule this City. Did you notice that Filner's people were fired immediately, before his resignation was final? That was because they were standing up for neighborhoods. First step is firing Faulkner, and replacing him with someone law abiding.

Ambien is often prescribed for sleeplessness, depending on the amount prescribed, this doesn't seem so excessive. Usually they refer to a psychiatrist. We should remember that football scrambled Mr. Seau's brain, as revealed by autopsy. Finding blame after a suicide is normal, but we should remember that the minds of those who do it lack a normal sense of consequences. He might have attempted suicide before he ever took Ambien. Thousands of football players suffered terrible brain damage, while doctors failed to notice. I won't defend Dr. Chao without hearing more, but there is plenty of guilt in football medicine, and this is not the pill party locker room we used to hear about.

She's playing "hide and go seek with" transcripts of her talks, "spin the bottle" with multiple banking firms, and has "hit the jackpot" with gambling proceeds from the rigged game that has U.S. taxpayers backing derivatives gambling. Her feigned ignorance reminds of the famous lines from Casablanca. "I was shocked, SHOCKED to learn that gambling was allowed on Wall Street."...."Take your winnings Ma'am"...."Round up the usual suspects.".

There are those who think Sanders and supporters are hard on Hillary, they will learn how soft they are when they face Republicans. They might actually find a provable crime, there certainly is a pile of loot, and nothing sold except for influence.

Sanders knows these abuses, he contents himself with outlining her horrific breaches of ethics, and stops short of accusing her of crime. He's serious, and the fact that one can gain $150.000.000 for speaking fees LEGALLY after leaving office is the real issue.
