    After all, being realistic it's going to cost me personally, at the very highest estimate, not more than $5.00.
    Being the leader of the most important country in the world, a country that has a highly divided political landscape, with sequesters, nagging about even the simplest things and turning them into a partisan hate fest, I can understand the president would want to enjoy his vacation with his family and the family pet.

    Every president takes holidays and for every president this costs money, that is just the reality of it.

As long as somebody wants to spend money lavishly I just hope they do it here in the USA.
    I don't think Martha's Vineyard is hurting. It's a really rich community. Good point about spending it in this country though.

    In 1972 the first vote I ever cast was for Nixon, and yes, I have a chip on my shoulder
    when it comes to him- he let me down with his criminal behavior.

    Huh? Where did I compare Nixon and Obama?

    Accessory after the fact is a felony, and no felony is ever a "mole hill". That should be obvious
    even to a European, and an American really has no excuse.

    Maybe someone else could chime in, did those serving in the military back then have special tax exemptions ?

    When I first joined the Corps we were paid in cash. On pay day the pay officer would show up with a .45 strapped on his side along with a SNCO with a .45 strapped on his side holding a box full of greenbacks. Except in Nam and it was military script. So you never saw what was being withheld from your pay. Some months later they switched to a pay check and you could see what taxes were being withheld and it seems it was only a few bucks back then.
    Google tells us the lowest 1960s tax rate was well over 10%:

    Maybe the military paid different, lower rates.

    That's why I asked in my post if there were any who were serving in the military during the Vietnam War era to chime in if they remembered if we had any exemptions or a lower tax rate ?

    A PFC making $90. per month would have noticed he was having 10 % of his pay taken out. $10 back then was a lot of money back then when on liberty. That would be two cases of beer and a whole lot of burgers and fries.

    If I was having $30. taken out of my pay every month back in 1970, I'm sure I would have noticed. Maybe I just don't remember ?

    Hillary pulled some illegal crap trying to take down a Presidency and was relived from her position.

    Back in the 60's and 70's Hillary Rod Rodman had her ties to the radical "New Left" which included the Students For A Democratic Society (SDS) and the terrorist organization Weatherman (Weather Underground) who were behind taking down Nixon and ####### up America.

    The impeachment of President Clinton may have had more to do with payback of Hillary's connections to bringing down Nixon than cum on a dress.

    Kenneth Star was suppose to be investigating illegal contributions from Communist China to Clinton's reelection campaign and the naturalization of tens of thousands of convicted felon aliens so they could vote the Democrat ticket in 1996. Some where Kenneth Star was side tracked over a lie about a blow job.

    I have no midea what this is about, but it sounds like something that originated
    in the mind of an extremist partisan hack.

    See above.

    Starr didn't strike me as the kind of guy who you could sidetrack. If he concentrated on
    one line of attack then it must have been the only one offering a good chance of success.

    .
    It comes right out of the Congressional report on Watergate. Don't remember the title but can be found in the reference section of almost any decent public library in America. It's all there, the evidence, who was involved and who was involved in bringing down Nixon. The name Hillary Rodham keeps popping up in the report.
    In 1973 and 74 Hillary Rodham was extremely involved in taking down the U.S. government. I forget exactly what she did that was illegal but she was fired.

    I suppose back when the act of fellatio was still considered to be a sexual act, committing perjury under oath was also considered to be a crime.
