Scare Adds to Fears That
Clinton’s Work Has Taken Toll

New York Times, by Mark Landler

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/5/2013 11:45:29 AM

WASHINGTON — When Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton fractured her right elbow after slipping in a State Department garage in June 2009, she returned to work in just a few days. Her arm in a sling, she juggled speeches and a trip to India and Thailand with physical therapy, rebuilding a joint held together with wire and pins. (Snip) But after a fall at home in December that caused a concussion, and a subsequent diagnosis of a blood clot in her head, it has taken much longer for Mrs. Clinton to bounce back.

Unless, of course, this last "accident" didn´t happen at home, but rather in a plane headed for Tehran to negotiate some abysmal nuclear agreement with Ahmadinejad...just saying...it´s still out there.

Like so many in Washington, the writer equates travel with work. I don´t buy it.

Ohhh, poor baby. I certainly won´t waste any time worrying about her. I just hope she falls again and get some sense knocked into her. Like, DO NOT run for president. After obama I cannot imagine her sitting in the WH. But the American voter is so damn dumb I can see it happening.

The Left is just scared that she won´t be able to run for president because Hillary is all they got. They will run her if they have to strap her in a wheelchair. If she can fog a mirror she will be qualified.

What a load of crap. Works hard, yeah right, and look at the trail of chaos and destruction she leaves in her wake as she jets around the world at taxpayer expense betraying our allies and cozying up to the muslim savages in the Middle East.

This pantload is really the Secretary of Disgrace. She has the blood of our brave Seals who were murdered on that rooftop in Benghazi. She should be in prison.

On the face of it it sounded like she contracted a stomach virus (usually called "Montezuma´s Revenge") which left her dehydrated - diarrhea can do that - and weak. She fell. The blow caused a subdural hematoma behind her ear.

Not very zingy but it does seem fairly plausible.

Allen West needs to run as a third party candidate since the Repub leadership would never allow him to be their candidate.

65 years old, history of falling, makes her eligible for a lttle rascal scooter.
And I agree - travel is notnecessarily related to work, unless you are an airline employee.
Hillary likes to travel - took a world tour with her brat, Chelsea, during Bill´s second term, and it cost 40 million dollars.

Perhaps there IS something Americans can agree on after all.

Hillary has done enough. She has suffered enough - and we have suffered enough. It is time for her to retire and concoct her memoirs. Give the lady a gold watch -a cigar, too, if she likes- thank her for etc. etc. etc. and let her go.

Pay her a generous stipend to go away and stay away, to be quiet and leave us alone. It would be worth millions. Who could begin to put a figure on such a thing? It would be a bargain at almost any price.

And it just might start a trend: Americans could buy out annoying politicians and public figures, i.e. pay them to go away and keep quiet.

Hillary-haters and bashers always ask: What is the big deal about this woman? What has she ever actually done? Why does she matter? Why should we care?

They miss the point. The point is that she is Hillary Clinton. That is why she matters. That is what she has done. That is why we should care.

Hillary Clinton is Hillary Clinton in the same way, for example, that Kim Kardashian is Kim Kardashian. They are celebrities. They are who they are. Who they are is what they are and why they matter - or why they should matter.

It is quite useless and beside the point, therefore, to grumble and rummage through her record demanding proof or documentation that she has ever actually DONE anything significant or meritorious. What she has done is to be herself.

She is Hillary Clinton. That is enough. (It may be too much - but it is certainly enough.)

Yes, it takes longer for a rummy to "bounce back," particularly with this particular rummy is in hiding, shucking and jiving to keep from exposing herself and Bow-Boy´s responsibility for the rape and murder of the late ambassador.

A fall-down wide-eyed drunk politico and a birth certificate challenged socialist/communist in charge of dismantling the U.S. one trillion at a time.

Over weight and out of shape. Blood clot was likely the result of a botched face lift. Yet at nearly 70 the Dems expect her to be the next president..but of course after Obama the bar for that job is not too high.

The war on standards
comes to college debate
Powerline, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 4/19/2014 8:55:55 AM     Post Reply
Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

What Really Happened at the Bay of Pigs

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

Federal Land as a Percentage

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

Capitalism and the Dalai Lama

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Here´s How Long That Teen Would Have

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
