Sacramento Bee asks: Why so many Hillary Haters?

The cartoonish author of the Sac Bee piece thinks he has people like me figured out. Too bad he is wrong. There are many very good reasons why thoughtful people do not want Hillary to be our next President.

I don’t hate Hillary, nor do I hate women. Nor do I only like women who are “10’s.” That’s not it at all. But it was a nice attempt by the cartoon man to paint with a broad brush those he disagrees with politically as being bigoted sexists.

Here’s what I emailed to the author of the Sac Bee piece and his boss:

“We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.” –Aesop (620 BC – 560 BC) Greek slave & fable author

Dear Sirs,

She was Secretary of State while raking in millions from foreign interests to the “Clinton Foundation.”

Wall Street banks paying her $150,000 – $200,000 for an hour speech – who is worth that? It’s obvious those banks expect to get something in return – they didn’t get rich by wasting their money now did they?

Routing her official emails through a private server in hopes of maintaining control over information that might be used to incriminate her.

No, nothing fishy about the way she operates!

What scares me is not that corrupt politicians exist, they always have. It’s that the American people have become so confused about what is in the best interests of their country, thanks in large part to the liberal-progressives in media.

I could have gone on about Hillary’s bad behavior, but didn’t. Either you see Hillary for the corrupt person she is, or you won’t.

Not long ago, I sat with a liberal Democrat at a dinner gathering. When asked if he thought Hillary is corrupt he did not hesitate – “Of course she is,” he replied emphatically. This, after expressing disbelief that my wife would not vote for her. “You’re a woman – how can you not be voting for her?” he wanted to know. Eiye yigh yigh. Hey, at least he was honest about corrupt Hillary.

Meanwhile, many of Hillary’s cheerleaders try to convince the rest of us that she is actually an ethical, good person, who has merely been lied about and misunderstood – as if we are too stupid to make up our own minds about her even though we have been observing her bad behavior for well over 20 years.

Truth In Advertising

“We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.”                   Aesop (620 BC – 560 BC) Greek slave & fable author

Why are politicians exempt from the truth-in-advertising laws they created? The Federal Trade Commission Act mandates that:

•Advertising must be truthful and non-deceptive;

•Advertisers must have evidence to back up their claims; and

•Advertisements cannot be unfair.

President Obama and most members of Congress would be serving time behind bars if the FTC laws that apply to everyone else also applied to them. The next time a politician tries to sell you something or asks for your vote ask yourself if they meet the advertising standards enforced by the FTC. If the answer is no, then it’s time to replace them with someone who has integrity.


Think About It!

Where you find the laws most numerous, there you will find also the greatest injustice.

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
–Aesop (620 BC – 560 BC)

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
–Aesop, The Lion and the Mouse

What an absurd thing it is to pass over all the valuable parts of a man, and fix our attention on his infirmities.
–Joseph Addison

Content thyself to be obscurely good. When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, the post of honor is a private station.
–Joseph Addison, Cato

Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.
–Lord Acton, Lecture, February 26, 1877

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
–Edmund Burke (1729 – 1797) Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents

A man who works beyond the surface of things, though he may be wrong himself, yet he clears the way for others and may make even his errors subservient to the cause of truth.
–Edmund Burke, A Philosophical Enquiry Into The Sublime and Beautiful

When ancient opinions and rules of life are taken away, the loss cannot possibly be estimated. From that moment we have no compass to govern us; nor can we know distinctly to what port we steer.
–Edmund Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France

You can observe a lot just by watching.
–Yogi Berra, US baseball player, coach, manager, businessman, Berra’s Law

A smile is the shortest distance between two people.

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
–Sir Winston Churchill

Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
