You would probably try that, but I've never tried it. Sorry it distresses you so much that someone agrees with me. Earlier I was accused of being sanrene, and now teatime.

Of course I have a problem with it. If every musing was made public, how would anything get DONE? Do you even THINK these things through?

OK, every musing and consideration is made known. So, everyone knows that the governor is considering a certain action. The lobbyists jump into action; protests start; people start spreading rumors and begin campaigns to try to sway all of the players to their POV. Good people are trashed and hurt. Relationships are torn apart. Nothing gets done.

All because the governor was CONSIDERING an action in its preliminary stages. How on Earth could a government function that way?

I would only demand that all politicians, including Obama, not circumvent the law this way.

Her personal email is hacked and she is circumventing the law. Yeah, right!

Don't worry. I fully understand, as space aliens, republicans are peas in an (alien) pod.

I don't care to convince you. She was using her yahoo account for government business so that it could never be subpoaened. The Bush White House does the same. I think that's wrong. You can use moral relativism all you want.

You are completely missing the point, I really don't think you are that daft but maybe I'm wrong. The point is not that government officials instantly make all communications public, but that they are stored on GOVERNMENT servers to be recalled and inspected if needed. ALSO to protect any sensitive information that might be in the "consideration" stages. You don't mind being kept in the dark and if that's what works for you then God Bless.

I don't really think that was the reason she was using it, SINCE THERE WAS REALLY NOTHING IN THERE THAT AMOUNTED TO ANYTHING.

The Bush White House does the same? Uh...where is your proof of that? Never heard of that. This sort of attitude "it's okay if it was a Democrat kid" is ridiculous. You people think it's okay that the kid hacked her email. If it were a Republican's son hacking Obama's emajl you'd be calling for his head on a platter. HYPOCRITS!
