The dossier didn't meet the Democrats' standard and Hillary discarded it, but it more than meets the Republicans' because they embraced it and took it over from Hillary.

Did Hillary pay a foreign agent who engaged with Russian officials to draft a dossier on her political opponent?

Care to answer?

They admire rich people who are failures - Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, etc. And despise rich people who actually got there by achievement, even if they are Republicans - see Mitt Romney.

I'm not right wing but how did tech ceos 'earn' their wealth?

By manipulating financial markets and innovating ways for marketers to reach consumers?


All rich people are frauds and thieves. There are no 'good' ones.

Then you guys should have a field day making fun of right-wingers who hold signs up that say: Keep Your Goddamn Government Hands Off My Medicare!

Or right-wingers who rile against socialism but happily accept subsidies.

Yes, because Donald Trump has deep Russian ties. You make it sounds like it's her fault that Trump is deeply connected to Russia. She didn't pick her opponent, you guys did. You guys selected a Russian mole as the candidate so of course Hillary had to dig in Russia. Duh!

If her opponent had been Jeb Bush, she'd have had to reach out to Saudi Arabia to do her opposition research.

If your party's next candidate is O.J. Simpson, then the Democrats will have to do their opposition research with prison inmates. The Dems have to get their hands dirty because the GOP is dirty. Is this so hard to understand?

Liberals, "Impeach Trump for colluding with Russia to win the election even though it was Hillary who actually did that. But what she did was justified because Trump is not a liberal. Yeah, sure it was her husband Russians paid $500k for an hour long speech while she was SoS making decisions about Russia that went favorably for them, but Russians stay in Trump hotels making him dozens of dollars a night that he would have made anyway from the other people who would have booked that room. The point is he should have lost; therefore, he should be removed by any means necessary."

Has that changed? Is that yet another hypocrisy of the Right? Is it only Coal and Real Estate and Oil/Chemical Barons that they love now?
