    Yet, cars kill more people than guns. Leave your baby in a hot car. When he dies from the heat, blame the sun or the car . Blame anything but yourself. And we all know who is responsible regardless of intent.

  • So, if the driver of a car decides to drive through a crowd of kids, it's the car's fault. It must be tough to be a lib loon.

  • The gap between the rich and poor shrinks significantly. Perhaps the lib loons can tell us why we are better off.

  • we get them to focus on climate change.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New orders for U.S. manufactured capital goods unexpectedly fell in May as demand declined broadly, suggesting business spending will remain a drag on economic growth in the second quarter.

    The Commerce Department said on Friday non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft, a closely watched proxy for business spending plans, decreased 0.7 percent last month after a revised 0.4 percent drop in April.

  • Durable goods orders fell 2.2% in May, according to the Commerce Department

  • Bill Clinton was disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court over the Lewinski incident.

    He also paid a $25,000.00 fine over the Lewinski incident. He also paid an $850,000.00 settlement over the Lewinski incident.

    He was also fined $90,000 for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones case.

    So Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who was fined for lying under oath, asks the American people to believe him when he says the best thing for the country is 4 years for Hillary.

    If you want to know how bankrupt the Democratic Party is today of pro-growth ideas, check out Hillary Clinton's latest speech on the economy. She has absolutely nothing new to offer that obama hasn't already tried.

    Clinton admits in her speech that things aren't all they should be in the economy after seven-plus year of obamanomics. "The challenges we face are significant," she said. She even took a couple subtle digs at obama, complaining about "long-term neglect" of poor communities and the fact that the unemployment gap between blacks and whites has been widening, whereas it was narrowing when her husband was in the White House.

    So what are the "big, bold" ideas she said she'd implement that will "drive growth"? Spend more money on infrastructure, raise taxes on the rich, impose more mandates on businesses that raise the cost of labor, make college cheaper and saddle the economy with more regulations.

    Is Clinton really not aware that this is exactly what obama prescribed, and that his policies have produced the worst economic recovery in history?

    Her campaign is based on the premise she’ll narrow the gap between the rich and the poor and understands the plight of the average working class.

    “For the factory workers and food servers who stand on their feet all day. For the nurses who work the night shift. For the truckers who drive for hours and the farmers who feed us . For everyone who’s ever been knocked down, but refused to be knocked out,” Mrs. Clinton said during her presidential kick-off speech last year, vowing to fight for the middle class.

    But this is a tough needle to thread, considering Mrs. Clinton is part of the top 1 percent of the 1 percent, and got that way profiting off of public service.

    When Mrs. Clinton emerged from the hospital after the birth of her grandson this week, all eyes were on her $3,500 Ralph Lauren calfskin purse, being carried by an aide. New mom Chelsea Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, paid upwards of $1,700 or more per night to stay in the Lenox Hill hospital in Manhattan, the same one where Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their daughter.

    The executive birthing suite is more like a five-star hotel, with “flat-screen TVs, lushly upholstered gray and cream sofas adorned with silken throw pillows,” the New York Daily News reported.

    A far cry from your average hospital room.

    There’s no doubt, Mrs. Clinton’s had trouble connecting with the people she’s trying to reach.

    In the latest Quinnipiac poll in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, more than half of the respondents said Mrs. Clinton doesn’t “care about the needs and problems of people like you.”

    They also judged rival Donald Trump as more “honest and trustworthy.”

    Emails uncovered by Judicial Watch show that the State Department at one point turned off some of its own security features so Hillary Clinton's private emails would get delivered. (AP)

    Not only did Hillary Clinton's unsecured private email system risk exposing sensitive and at times highly classified information to outsiders, it forced the State Department to compromise its own security to accommodate her.

    That's according to a new batch of emails uncovered by Judicial Watch, which had asked for them to be released after a scathing inspector general report referenced them.

    As the AP reports, "the emails ... show that the State Department technical staff disabled software on their systems intended to block phishing emails that could deliver dangerous viruses."

    The staff members did so, the emails show, because "they were trying urgently to resolve delivery problems with emails sent from Clinton's private server."


    WASHINGTON (AP) — Television cameras rolled when CROOKED Hillary Clinton appeared on the central balcony of the New York Stock Exchange to ring the opening bell — just minutes after she attended a private breakfast in September 2009 with influential Wall Street and business leaders.

    But the identities of her breakfast guests would be left off of her official State Department calendar — omissions that are among scores of names and events missing from Clinton's historical record of her daily activities as secretary of state, an Associated Press review found.

    Now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Clinton met that morning with a dozen chief executives, most of whose firms had lobbied the government and donated to her family's global charity, the Clinton Foundation. The event was closed to the press and merited only a brief mention in her official calendar, which omitted the names of all her guests — among them Blackstone Group Chairman Steven Schwarzman, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi and then-New York Bank of Mellon CEO Robert Kelly.

    The AP review of Clinton's calendar — her after-the-fact, official chronology of the events of her four-year term — identified at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors and loyalists, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were either not recorded or listed with identifying details scrubbed. The AP found the omissions by comparing the 1,500-page document with separate planning schedules supplied to Clinton by aides in advance of each day's events. The names of at least 114 outsiders who met with Clinton were missing from her calendar, the records show.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Secretary Crooked Hillary failed to turn over a copy of a key message involving problems caused by her use of a private homebrew email server, the State Department confirmed Thursday. The disclosure makes it unclear what other work-related emails may have been deleted by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
