Before this conversation continues its descent into Punch and Judy, tit for
tat, let us review what is on the table.
Omar says *qualified for killing." I , too, wonder what specifically he has
There is a conventional sense in which "qualified for killing" applies to
everyone with military training, my daughter, for example. I know of no
evidence that Hillary Clinton has had such training.
Has Hillary Clinton participated in decisions that involved people being
killed? Of course. We have, for example, video of her being in the war room
when Osama Bin Laden was killed. It is hard to imagine that she was not
involved in the decision to go after Ghaddafi. That said, it is equally
hard to imagine that she was involved in deciding the way in which he was
killed and the treatment of his corpse.
There are, of course, old accusations of her arranging for particular
deaths for political purposes. Bearing the production of new evidence,
these are only gossip and slander.
And none of these points speaks to the central
political/moral/philosophical issue at stake, that in every nation in the
world the individuals who head the executive branches of government are
empowered to make decisions that get people killed. They are the ones
chosen, by election, fiat, politburo or coup, to exercise the power that is
the very definition of sovereignty, the legitimate use of lethal force.
Given the opportunity to choose such individuals, one would think that
"qualified" and what counts as qualifications are highly pertinent

I you have evidence of crimes against Hillary, it's imperative that you
come forth with it or forever shut up. The world would be very interested
since the FBI and the billions spent by the Republican Party could not
produce any evidence.

Mike is on something good and now trying to convince us to vote
Democrat even though the election is over, also blissfully ignorant of his
candidates activities as Secretary of State. Is this called trolling or

Lol it is not about which server she used, the server was used to
conceal the content. I give up

Those emails? What about those emails? Dear God, you fret over
which server Hillary used, but a crook who founded a phony "university"
cheating people out of as much as $35,000, who started and bankrupted 5
businesses leaving his business partners holding the empty billion dollar
bags. A man who wouldn't release his tax returns because he had not paid
any taxes, because he was "smart" and used his failed businesses to write
off all taxes. So, this dishonest, corrupt, xenophobic, misogynistic,
psychotic man with his finger on the end-of-humanity-button doesn't phase
you at all. But Hillary's use of an unsecure server make you apoplectic,
even though the FBI says there was no crime committed. Well, OK, it's
going to come to an end one way or another, eh? So why not at the finger
of a rude, crude, mentally challenged megalomaniac?

Heard anything about those emails ?

Omar writes, in re Hillary: "Qualified at killing ? Yes." Please
tell me who Hillary has killed. I'm sure Trump would like to know as

Amen. Amen. Amen.

Hillary is definitely not a movie star, and I found her speaking
voice a bit grating, but she was far more qualified than any
male candidate willing to go to bat for America and Western
against the Fuehrer in waiting. In addition, the election of
President would have been a powerful rejection of the
misogyny of Trump. But that was not to be the case. This corrupt,
misogynitic, xenophobic,"nasty" man now stands at the helm of the
powerful nuclear armed nation in the world. Good luck to us, one

We will see. The Democrats should not have allowed a woman like
HC to be their candidate. It may be that the bulk of Trump
be brought to reason, with some guidance.

Yes, at last! the long awaited anarchic rhymer has arrived.
Hereabouts anarchy has been a response to Trumpery. That, by
the way, is pretty much how I dance—which doesn’t happen often.
