A Forum

I would like this to be a forum for political and social thought. I would like to try to keep it civil. That can be difficult as people, myself included, usually feel strongly about these issues. I will try not to be insulting though insult is often in the eye of the beholder.

Maybe no one will ever read this but me, maybe it will just turn out to be my private journal. We'll see.

The Clinton Foundation Controversy

Trumpy keeps railing against Hillery and the Clinton Foundation.  I've been reading everything I can find and I don't understand the problem.  As far as I can tell, the Clintons receive no financial gain from it, it is a charity.  Do trumpy and his minions think that no one in government should talk to anyone who donates to the American Red Cross, The National Park Foundation, The Wounded Warrior Project or any of the many charities to which the wealthy donate. 

I don't believe I ever heard any criticism of Bob Dole when his wife was president of the American Red Cross but then we didn't have folks combing through e-mails trying to dig up dirt on the Doles. 
Trumpy seems to be reaching pretty far to substantiate his  claim of "Crooked Hillery" the fact is there is really nothing there.  Hillery and Bill haven't been sued for non-payment of debts nor have they declared bankruptcy leaving others holding the bag for there mismanagement as trumpy has done.  No, if trumpy wants to find a crook he can just look in the mirror.

If you want to know what the Clinton Foundation does you can learn more from this NPR story.
