The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.
The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.
On its 2013 tax forms, the most recent available, the foundation claimed it spent $30 million on payroll and employee benefits; $8.7 million in rent and office expenses; $9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $8 million on fundraising; and nearly $8.5 million on travel. None of the Clintons is on the payroll, but they do enjoy first-class flights paid for by the foundation.
I do not care that she won reelection by 67% . That was before the was certified as a liar..

It is the poor who habitually vote Democrat... Yet they are still POOR.
Indiana University Health Plans, which provides insurance to approximately 23,000 Hoosiers, is the latest company to announce it won’t be offering coverage through the Affordable Care Act exchange in 2017.
Earlier this year, United Healthcare announced it was exiting Indiana’s individual marketplace, and last month, Fort Wayne-based Physicians Health Plan of Northern Indiana followed suit.
Fredo, you never cease to impress. I’ll be doggone if I don’t detect influences of major American writers in your prose style. Your use of the term "gentle readers" seems right out of columns by the late, great, twin sister advice columnists Ann Landers & "Dear Abby," plus, my favorite, "Miss Manners." It speaks well of you to channel their graceful styles. Relatedly, I offer guidance from another noted advice columnist, Heloise. It’s for removing stains from hands and nails:
Make a thick paste of lemon juice and baking soda. Using a toothbrush, spread the paste over the stained areas and scrub gently. Be patient, prolonged scrubbing will be needed for deep stains. Rinse with warm soapy water. Repeat as needed. Apply moisturizer generously.
I'm told that this is the preferred treatment by professional cherry pickers.
Small thoughts at large:
• Chuck Berry turned 90 this past Tuesday. Hail, hail rock ‘n roll, seminal Chuck. You're the berries & the cat's pajamas. He announced a new album being released in 2017, his first new one in 38 years; all new songs.
• Speaking of music, I ask myself, "If they were musical instruments, what would Trump and Hillary be?"
Ans: Trump: kazoo – ear-catching and interesting but tolerable only in short doses. Hillary: lyre.
• And what I expect to be music to my ears: I think I’ve found a way to make the election both tolerable and profitable. I’ll be setting up a sanitizing stand at my polling place exit. Lots of hot water and soap, fresh-scented towels, mint and/or menthol candy drops, and Lysol-scented nasal spray. [Cash ONLY] I expect to be wealthy by Nov. 9, you know, supply and demand.
