My son, who hates talking about politics sent me this email

Disclaimer: It pains me to have to make big statements like this about such a large group of people, but they have shown absolutely no evidence to contradict what I am about to say.

I donít think Trump is necessarily the problem.

Heís just a leading political figure who is finally saying out loud what his supporters were already thinking anyway. He is capitalizing on the problem, but heís not the source.

The source, I feel, is an ugly truth that has been bubbling under the surface for a long time; a truth that we now must confront. That truth would have shown itself sooner or later. If not Trump, it would be somebody else.

That undeniable truth is, go figure, a whole lot of Americans are hateful, violent people.

All Trump did was light a match in a room that was already drenched in gasoline.


I'm glad he's a voter, and a progressive. He's just too sane not to be.

This list doesn't include the people that were executed, and found to be innocent after the fact. Nor does it list the people that were executed that we will never really know if they too were wrongly killed.

But Hillary says the issue is "complex". How can her reasoning that we keep the death penalty be any more "complex" than the government sanctioned murder of innocent men and women?

I wonder what HRC supporters think about this 'complex issue"?

I don't think I'm in the minority - please read.

Why is truth, fair play, and #1 - HONESTY a liberal value?

That is a question that I would LOVE to hear the answer to from every presidential candidate from both parties.

Why do republicans rely almost totally on falsehoods, and intimidation?

Sorry if I ruined anyone's evening!

Holy Cow! MSNBC: DOJ grants immunity to tech worker for HRC email system.

Lawrence O'Donnell reported this.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/in-clinton-email-investigation-justice-department-grants-immunity-to-former-state-department-staffer/2016/03/02/e421e39e-e0a0-11e5-9c36-e1902f6b6571_story.html

The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clintonís private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official.

The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clintonís 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.

As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents are likely to want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how it was set up, and whether any of the participants knew they were sending classified information in emails, current and former officials said.

The inquiry comes against a political backdrop in which Clinton is the favorite to secure the Democratic nomination for the presidency.
