    Do you have anything but conjecture? Did you look at their tax returns?

    Or are you, like Grant, going to argue from positions of sheer ignorance?
    The fact that you have blind acceptance that the "Clinton" foundation - with Billie, and Hill, and Chelsea all on the payroll and promoting themselves - is anything but a vanity project to stroke the Clinton narcissism is laughable. Again, naivety is comforting, isn't it?

    I take it you didn't bother to read or understand the law in question, nor did you even bother to read the foundation's 990 returns?

    Furthermore, with the 2% itemized phaseout, the tax expenditure amounts aren't as big as partisans like to claim they are.
    You seem to be portraying yourself as an expert on the foundation so I'll ask you, I've been trying to determine how much the Clintons donated to start up the "Clinton" foundation and how much they have personally donated to the foundation since its inception and I've been unable to find any references - any information? I ask because I note that Bill and Melinda Gates donated $26 billion to start their foundation and continue to donate so I assume the Clintons do likewise.

    And you got this were?

    I read the 990. I cited numbers from it. I also have experience with other non-profits. And I know where to find comparably large non-profits.

    And I have good working knowledge of the 501(c)3 code.

    Where did you get the notion of blind acceptance?

    Or is this your sole pathetic way of avoiding an argument on technical and legal grounds?

    that the "Clinton" foundation - with Billie, and Hill, and Chelsea all on the payroll
    Really? Page 7 has Chelsea receiving zero compensation. If you did any research whatsoever, you'd know this. If Biill or Hillary are recieving any compensation, it's less than $100,000 as they are excluded from reporting requirements. So where is your evidence that Bill, Hillary and Chelsea are all on payroll? It's pretty obvious you did zero research at all on this.

    and promoting themselves
    Which is not illegal.

    is anything but a vanity project to stroke the Clinton narcissism is laughable. Again, naivety is comforting, isn't it?
    Did you read a single thing the foundation does?

    I never said I was an expert on the foundation. I said know a hell of a lot more than any of you do about non-profits. You should be ashamed that Sangha read the return and you didn't.

    How is this relevant to the topic?

    Do you or do not have any actual evidence for your claims?

    Also...let's not kid ourselves. Centrism in the US is typically socially liberal and fiscally conservative. It's the Wall Street folks or big business folks that don't care about gays getting married but man....don't regulate their derivatives market.

    If you think all Democrats are leftists then you obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

    I watched much of their convention, witnessed BHO's programs, etc. Are the Dem's for or against, for example, socialized medicine?

    Couldn't even get 60 votes for a public option in health insurance, let alone socialized insurance, let alone socialized medicine...

    The end ambition is single payer, which is what Obama has wanted and which is socialized medicine. No Republicans voted for it - it was all Democrats.
