Smoking Big Cigars

0

I imagine at some point a politician in this day and age, with perhaps the weakest press corps  known to man, realizes they can do anything short of murder in broad day light and get away it, as long as they can push the right emotional buttons in the people that vote for them.

They stop worrying about getting caught and just start enjoying the champagne, cigars, and caviar; a little smooze here, a little quiet payoff there, nothing to lose sleep over.

15-0308 Clinton Email

You may have seen that Hillary Clinton is running for president and I am sure you are shocked. About six weeks have passed since the email scandal broke,  and the general public is starting to lose interest.

Hillary is going to run for the little people this time, by the way, the disenfranchised folks, the ones who have had it tough.

I ran a very unscientific poll on my Facebook page and it seems as if democrats don not want to look too closely at their presidential candidates; I know you are shocked again.

It may also not be a shock that  Democrats and Republicans in this country, with the help of a media that has nothing better to do than stir up drama, have learned to hate each other with passion. Hate of Republican’s alone is going to get Hillary half her votes.

A friend of mine summed up Hillary and the Clintons with one word: cunning. It fits most politicians these days, and maybe since the beginning of time.

This email thing, I guarantee you, did not catch Clinton by surprise. Her team researched the laws on this for weeks I imagine before they decided they could get away with setting up a private email, then deleting anything that may have got them in trouble.

 Clinton said there were 62,320 emails on the server, of which 30,490 were work-related. The other 31,830 were deleted after being deemed personal, the  New York Times reported
But you know what, I may be wrong, maybe she just got to cavalier. Everything else bounced off the Clinton’s why would she think it would be any different this time?
 The Associated Press has sued the State Department several times recently. Once over the lack of transparency in the Obama Administration, they seem to have a tough time filling record requests, and recently over the Clinton’s emails.
President-Elect Obama Meets With The Transition Economic Advisory Board
“After careful deliberation and exhausting our other options, The Associated Press is taking the necessary legal steps to gain access to these important documents, which will shed light on actions by the State Department and former Secretary Clinton, a presumptive 2016 presidential candidate, during some of the most significant issues of our time,” AP General Counsel Karen Kaiser said in a statement.
Iowa Senator Charles Grassly who heads the Senate judiciary committee, has also stated that Clinton, “probably broke the law.” and I imagine will have some pretty sharp people look into it.
It is easy to get cynical looking at politics and I know for sure that I do. But I also trust God, and from that perspective, “What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.”
Anything not done with integrity, in other words, will collapse, because it has no light in it. So the Clintons may be eating caviar and drinking champagne, but they too will weep…eventually.

Hobo John here, I am a fifty year old man currently living in a small town in Idaho, this is also where I grew up. Like any Idaho boy I love the outdoors, and am a sports enthusiast. But I also love the arts and paint a little myself. In Proverbs it says, "A man's pursuit is his kindness, " and that is my only true mission in life. I like to write about just about anything; songs , children's stories, politics, short stories, however, I have not attempted a novel yet. I also consider myself a bit of a philosopher, after seven years of living the homeless life I actually started to enjoy it. I started writing little phrases that I hope contain some wisdom. I call them Hobo Metaphysics. "Gentle beats the shit out of aggressive," being one of my favorites. Peace to you folks, "I love you with everything that I have." That is my motto and the truth of things.
