Looking at IMDb, she has had a very long career. She is of the age to retire if she wishes.

Shoot the message, not the messenger. She may be a winger, but that is no reason to mock her acting. What have you accomplished in your little life?

I am the uncounted

Unemployed for going on 2 1/2 years, exhausted all standard unemployment, extended benefits ended in Dec 2013. I have exhausted all of my personal savings and live day to day, month to month, not knowing if I can scrape out enough to keep the water/power on and the rent paid. No real job prospects; lots of resumes, job applications, smiling faces, and closing doors. I do not show up in any labor statistics and do not count toward the stated unemployment rate, though I do not work or have any prospects of work. There are 10s of millions of others just like me.

I am the uncounted.

Should America work towards becoming a gun-free Country?

Should we be passing legislation to remove items that serve no purpose but causation of death from our great Nation?

I know, right?

Just the other day someone came and attacked me, even though I had not ever said anything to or about them. They basically claimed that everything that I said, everything that I believe strongly in, was not worth shit - just because I did not stand in an occupy encampment a couple of winters ago. This particular attacker, knows nothing of the place I live, whether or not we even had a occupy movement of any regards here or any personal happenings in my life at the time. All that mattered to this "holier than thou" persona, was I did not occupy, they did. I needed to shut up and kiss their feet.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said she is not sorry she voted for a resolution authorizing President Bush to take military action in Iraq despite the recent problems there but she does regret "the way the president used the authority."


Hillary Clinton Defends 2002 Iraq War Vote On Meet The Press

Moderator Tim Russert pointed out that the title of the resolution was the "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002." Clinton responded saying, "We can have this Jesuitical argument about what exactly was meant. But when Chuck Hagel, who helped to draft the resolution said, 'It was not a vote for war,' What I was told directly by the White House in response to my question, 'If you are given this authority, will you put the inspectors in and permit them to finish their job,' I was told that's exactly what we intended to do. "


Hillary Clinton backs using drones in Pakistan

Hillary Clinton's Business Legacy at the State Department (leading part in drafting TPP)

She’s pressed the case for U.S. business in Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other countries in China’s shadow. She’s also taken a leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the free-trade pact that would give U.S. companies a leg up on their Chinese competitors.
