@8: My sweet summer child. You really think it takes a "genius" to think "maybe my influence as a former POTUS would help my wife in her upcoming investigation?"

Please, this is not a conspiracy, this is garden variety shady dealings, the hallmark of all career politicians, especially ones cut their teeth in political climes like Arkansas. Does not really take a "genius" to set up a meeting. I mean, it is not like Bill Clinton has ever lied. Would not dream of it, I am sure. He is not a doofus, nor is he smart enough to never get caught doing crap like this. He is in the middle, as history has showed us repeatedly.

But a quick thought experiment: Let's say Trump was under investigation for some shady real estate deal and his lawyer was caught on tape having a private off-the-record meeting with the DA or judge overseeing the case. Would you believe they just talked about golf and grandchildren? Or would you think maybe there was something else there?

So shocking to see Lynch and Bill Clinton having a secret tarmac meeting during the investigation into Hillary's email practices. I am sure they were just swapping potato salad recipes. The Clintons would never try to game the system or cheat to avoid consequences for their actions.

Stuff like this is why people judge Bill and Hillary as a package deal. They do it to themselves with stuff like this. If Hillary is going to use Bill as a campaign prop and secretive negotiator when she is being investigated, she brings it on herself.

@3: There is a reason the birth control pill was such a big deal to the women's equality movement way back in Sanger's day, and making sure women have easy access to abortion services is so important. It is not just an issue of abstractions such as freedom and bodily autonomy. Family planning It is a huge part of economic mobility and economic security.

@6: Did I mention cognitive development? The answer is no. The articles you linked actually agrees with me when it mentions economic struggles. Read up on your own link!

To Mudede, willingly entering into a legal contract is "slavery."

What I found most eye-opening was that only a very slim majority of black people think that Black Lives Matter will do any good for race relations, and there is not as much support for it in the black community as one may expect.

Also surprising was that a healthy majority of people of all races see individual racism as a worse problem than institutional racism. Perhaps the idea of institutional racism is not really that accepted outside of liberal bubbles and academia.

The most stark data is when it comes to birthrate and fatherless homes. Blacks have twice the birthrate of whites, and over half of black children live with a single mother. Until that issue is fixed, I really do not see how anything else is going to get better.

Broken homes lead to worse economic situations, and increases in criminal activity/worse educational outcomes, as well as severely limiting the economic and professional mobility of the mother. You just can't get ahead when all you have time to focus on is feeding kids.

@70: Jesus tap dancing Christ, stop telling "us Americans" what to do. Shut the fuck up for five minutes, and stop lecturing.

You are not nearly as smart or wise as you think yourself to be, nor are you as interesting as you see yourself. No one could care less about your choice for the president of a nation you are not a part of, and your "insight" is just mealy-mouthed word salad with zero meaning and says absolutely nothing but how awesome you think you are. Your repetitive scolding is getting old as hell, and you know nothing about American politics.

Posting refutations of something one insane person said, or one anonymous online commenter said while claiming an entire group of people feels this way is about 60%-70% of the "Investigative reporting" that happens here. Oh, and getting fooled by every internet hoax from 2007 to present over and over.

Just have to let it go and ignore it. One may as well report on what the insane person on the corner has ben yelling.

It is amazing how angry Clinton supporters like Dan get that Sanders actually put a small bump in the road to Hillary's inevitable coronation. God forbid she have to work for the nomination, maybe earn a vote or two.

I mean, she won, just be happy. You got your way. You don't have to go out of your way to make the other side seem insane because you got one angry email and are pretending it applies to thousands of other people.

It is that same crap TV networks do where they get one angry letter from an old person and assume it means 500,000 other people MUST feel the same way. It is transparent, complete bullshit.
