This is going to be a fun couple of years...

The [Clinton's] foundation has enabled the Clintons to write off more than $5 million from their taxable personal income since 2001, while dispensing $1.25 million in charitable contributions over that period.
....
Among the institutions receiving grants from the Clinton Family Foundation were Yale University, where both attended law school; groups named for deceased heads of state in Israel and Jordan; and a charity connected to the Arkansas businessman who helped Hillary Clinton make $100,000 on a commodities trade that stirred controversy a decade ago, Internal Revenue Service reports show.

Other than the fact he died in 1997, an excellent choice.

Maybe still an excellent choice.

Nixon, Disney and Presley have been rumored to hang around a 7-11 near Whittier California, not far from Disneyland.

"If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open sewage canals that open into the Ocean just south of Los Angeles.

He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a President. Nixon was so crooked he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning.
Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin."

Complete article on the funeral, from Rolling Stone:

This from the side of the aisle that champions individual rights?
I am agast at the vile tenor of your remarks. If a conservative wrote similar crap about ___________ ( insert name of liberal here). the media would demand removal from office, an apology, and then execution.

He was just quoting Hunter Thompson. Hunter wasn't conservative or liberal, he was.....Hunter.

JimB. a liberal?

Please say it isn't so.

He has a standing invitation from me to go to a Cuban restaurant anytime he comes down to see Enrique.

Ay dios que outrage es esto....

I should have clarified I was quoting Hunter Thompson, who I always liked, he is funny and vicious with what he wrote, the Gonzo style was oft imitated.

My views are a mishmash of liberal and conservative I think, so it kind of balances out to a middle of the road POV in the end.

Ernesto, I still hope to get down there, for the car, and visit with you, I consider you a valued member here, like a friend with good advice ready, like Curtis, Paul S. and the other MB fans down Southern Calif. Especially now, it is snowing here.
