    Umm, is there a useful link somewhere there ?

    Am I supposed to believe that oil companies and charities are the same ?

    The Washington Post is racist!

    No, wait.....Bush did it too!

    No, no....I got it. "It's old news."

    Just wondering.
    Are you concerned about the guidelines or whether it's true?

    If it's not true, than what are they defending?

    The Clinton Foundation on Wednesday defended its practice of accepting donations from overseas governments, amid concerns from some ethics experts that such contributions are inappropriate at a time when Hillary Clinton is preparing to run for president.

    A Wall Street Journal review of donations to the Clinton Foundation in 2014 showed the charity received money from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Oman, among others. The donors included Canada’s foreign affairs department, which is promoting the Keystone XL pipeline

    I don't see any charities in there but certainly big oil interests and outright lobbying.

    I wouldn't say that.....Conservatives aren't so much for Bush nor are the Tea Partiers. But they do have a choice.....they either go with someone who leans to the Right. Or not show up and let the Demos win.

    There wont be any independent winning. So thats the dilemma. As the left ideology of today.....just doesn't work.

    If the GOP primary's another Bush, and the democrats primary another Clinton, then either of them may as well be crowned.
