There is an old saying that goes “don’t do as I do, do as I say.”
This seems to be the case with the revelation that former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton plans on charging 200,000 per speech.
Her husband, former President Bill Clinton's fees are also in the six-figure category.
Could these speeches reveal what really happened in the Benghazi scandal, or will they be centered on her potential run for the Oval Office? Will she address the U.S. debt crisis or just offer more fluff and gloss over the real threats facing not only the county but our culture as well.
What is at issue here is the overall hypocrisy of the elite and disregard for the working middle class who suffer the burdens of their decisions.
Another glaring example was Bill Clinton’s office which was located in Harlem, NY. According to most who were interviewed he was never there. A facade or a game of hide and seek.
President Obama wants gun control and will pull out all the stops to achieve his goals. My question is why you were so crafty in eluding one of the most egregious lapses in our nation’s recent history with the Fast and Furious scandal? In the end how many lives will these automatic weapons take?
The hypocrisy continues. Promises were made to crack down on the evil Wall Street types and yet the largest financial scandal in the country’s history did not lead to one indictment.
This practice of the government elites enjoying double standards is not limited to the federal branch but can be found in our local environment of political decisions.
The recent vote on the school board issue reflects the voices of the people are not being heard. Despite the county delegation asking for a delay it appears no one heard them. The hybrid concept was voted down.
Then there is recent revelation of Section 8 issue in the eastern section of the county along with the 500% increase in the use of food stamps according to Elaine Hutchison from the Office of Human Resouces.
Then there is the sequestration issue that seems to be something the president wanted, at least in the beginning. This is what famed reporter and journalist Bob Woodard is saying. The president voted for the sequestration.
Could this be a sign of things to come? It seemed everyone thought the rich would pick up the tab, however Walmart (the store for the lower income working class) was in for a rude awaking when they reported their most recent sales figures.
As gas prices continue to rise while the tax hit on the working class will take its inevitable toll, the stock market continues to rise to an inflated high. The Wall Street Journal predicts a 10% correction by this summer.
Jeff Immlet, the CEO of GE (whose company paid no taxes), once the president’s job czar who by the way sent many of his work overseas was a hypocrite, as was Google not paying any taxes – zero, zilch, none – this year.
Santa Klaus is not real and neither is the money ($17 trillion) the U.S. is spending, but don’t ask this woman. Sonner or later we will have to pay the piper.
