Rolling In The Dough

February 22, 2013 by  

Hillary will rake in some big bucks. Now that she is officially out of office, look for Hillary Clinton to generate some hefty paychecks on the speaker circuit. Estimates are that the former Secretary of State, Senator and first lady will be able to command more than $100,000 per lecture. Add to that the millions of dollars she will no doubt receive when she signs a contract to write her memoirs, and it won’t be long before she can rival her husband’s earnings. Of course, it will take Hillary Clinton a while to amass the fortune Bill Clinton has banked since he left office. Estimates are that the former President now has a net worth north of $50 million.

Marco Rubio’s so-called “drinking problem.” Isn’t it amazing the lengths the liberal media will go in their efforts to tarnish the reputations of leading conservatives? The latest example is their reaction to Senator Marco Rubio’s admittedly awkward pause for a sip of water while delivering the Republican response to Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech. The next day, MSNBC played a clip of the incident an amazing 155 times, according to The Daily Caller. On CNN, host Wolf Blitzer said the flub could be a “career ender” for the conservative stalwart. Come on, folks. Can’t we be even a little serious here?

Reagan home to become Obama parking lot. Did you hear that Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Chicago will be demolished to make way for a parking lot for the Presidential library of the current occupant of the White House? The University of Chicago Medical Center, which owns the place, says a small plaque will be installed somewhere on the property to commemorate that Reagan once lived there when the Obama Presidential Library is built.

A majority says government threatens our rights. The Pew Research Center says that for the first time since it began polling Americans on the question, a majority now believes that government threatens their personal rights and freedoms. In March 2010, 47 percent of respondents said government posed a threat to personal freedom; 50 percent disagreed. In the latest survey, taken Jan. 9-13, the center reported that 53 percent said government does represent a threat; only 43 percent disagreed. I’m glad to see more people are waking up.

    It’s about time people wake up and realize the propaganda game the govenrment it playing and how our constitutional rights could be taken away. They are taking a little at a time, only enough to keep the wool over the eyes of the sheeple. Only time will tell.

      The propaganda game is played right here too and you swallow every little tidbit Libertarian. Can you honestly tell the difference between what is printed and that of tabloid journalism. Tampico,IL also claims that Reagan lived there for 9 years which isn’t true. Did you know that Prophetstown Illinois also claims that Reagan was born there so how many boyhood homes does a person get? Tampico,Prophetstown and Dixon are within a few miles of each other so I think Chip can be more honest in the facts of the story. Reagan was also a lifeguard while in high school in Dixon and after he graduated. He is credited saving 72 lives during that time period which is impressive.

    Chip is playing reruns and becoming like Ben. Bringing up unimportant issues and turning them into massive conspiracies. LOL! Who cares what Hillary makes on speaking tours for every other political figure has done it. Conservatives too Chip! Does Beck, Reagan,H Bush ,etc come to mind. If people are willing to pay the big bucks to see someone that is their gain or loss. Rubio was as nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof and yes paradies/fun are made all the time in what those politicians do. Biden’s gaffs are always out there and even PLD does it all the time such as with Obama holding a rifle. Why is that so different ? As far as Reagan’s “childhood home” goes he only lived there a couple of years. He was not born there and lived most of his life in Dixon Illinois. Where his home is a tourist attraction. Did you know that Tampico,Ill also claims that Reagan was born there. They also claimed he lived there 9 years which isn’t true.

    How many doners to the Clinton Library got their arms twisted to do so by Hillary during her tenure as Sec. of State?

  • NetSailor

    All elected or appointed government officials, after leaving government and taking a job in the private sector, should have to pay a tax of 75%, for a minimum of 5 years, on any compensation that is above what their government pay was. Kudos to Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit for mention of this idea. Also, “repeal the Hollywood tax cuts!!!”.
