Several days ago, Hillary Clinton spoke at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV) about the rising cost of higher education. Her speaking fee was $225,000. Could someone explain why she is charging a six-figure fee when talking about how the cost of a college education is increasing? Doesn’t that sound hypocritical?
Hypocrisy also revolves around Kentucky’s Secretary of State Alison Grimes, who is the Democratic challenger in the Senate race against incumbent Mitch McConnell (R). Grimes has stated that McConnell treats women badly, yet Grimes has Bill Clinton (a philanderer) campaigning for her.
According to the latest poll, McConnell has a three-point percentage lead. Grimes had the lead earlier this summer, but that lead disappeared by August. Reasons are 1) McConnell got a jump start on the television ads, 2) Grimes hypocrisy and her “war on women” tactic, and 3) Grimes’s scare tactics and emotional appeals (both revolving around an ad criticizing McConnell for opposing the expansion of Medicare) are not having the impact she anticipated.
Meanwhile, in the midst of a possible Ebola outbreak, Obama claims that travel restrictions to several countries in West Africa (where the virus originated) would only make things worse, i.e. allowing the virus to spread by not bringing in medical supplies. Travel restrictions would not worsen the situation, because anyone from outside the region who is delivering medical supplies could deliver them to an area outside the quarantine zone, in which designated individuals would then deliver them to their destination.
And speaking of Ebola, now a cruise ship with a passenger who might have contracted the Ebola Virus has docked in Galveston, Texas. Doesn’t it seem strange that all the cases of Americans having Ebola are taking place in Texas? One has to wonder if there really is a biological warfare conspiracy targeted at Texans (and perhaps other Red States). Such conspiracy theories include suspension of elections, martial law, and FEMA camps.
And will sending in the National Guard to West Africa result in any progress, or will it wind up a disaster?
In summing up my thoughts about Clinton and Obama, I would say that although Obama is the worst President in the history of the United States, Clinton is the dumbest President we have ever had. And given the current situation, it is likely Republicans will take control of the Senate after the mid-term elections (contrary to what Debbie Wasserman Schultz has said).
