Slap In The Face

Warning: This post is NSFW. For more on the current Hillary scandal winding down go here. ¶Recent email exchange with an Old Friend got a bit heated, dear worst-reader. Thought I’d share it with you as I tried to do with similar posts here and here. The subject at hand is the recent revelation that Hillary Rodham Clinton, the speculative current front-runner for the 2016 presidential election and former Secretary of State, might have broken some laws/rules regarding her use of emails. Yeah, baby. This scandal is starting to emerge as another Clinton doozy. Which is cool. I find almost any type of scandal involving the Clintons to be hi-larry-us. It’s not so much what the scandals are about but more who the people are that try to turn these scandals into something they are not. Seriously. What really turned me into a Clinton fanboy is the scandal-doozy of them all. The blowjob, the stained blue dress, the cigar! Mr. Bullet-Proof himself pulled that one off like nobody could. Hat’s off to ya Bubba Clinton. Alone the money spent on trying to convict Bill Clinton for perjuring himself for a personal transgression that took place between consenting adults should be the ultimate message as to how low a nation-state can sink. Or? Or let me put it another way. I think Bill Clinton is one of the greatest professional politicians ever (accentuate the word professional, please). At the 2012 democratic convention he gave one of the greatest political endorsement speeches ever! Does that mean I love this guy? Does that mean I think the Clinton’s are perfect? Of course not. These people are (accentuate) professional politicians. As far as their policies go, I hate the fact that Bill was unable to prevent the incorporation of the US government–that is, prevent the merging of big corporations and government. Nor was I a fan of Bill’s foreign policy. Yet if one considers the record, that is, comparably speaking, considering economic and domestic policy, Bill really wasn’t all that bad. Without Bill Clinton there probably would not have been a tech revolution. And while everyone bitches and moans about government, is it anywhere noted that the largest government expansion since FDR happened after Bubba–thanks to a republican nutjob prez? Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t want Bill or his wife on a pedestal. But within the context of where America has been and is projecting to go, and how complacent US voters are, seems to me there should be a lot of Das Volk out there thanking there lucky stars there’s still a Clinton around. Or maybe not. Whatever. But I digress.

Rant on. -t

Note: The email exchange below took place within the last few days. My dear old friend no longer lives in the US–like me, albeit a bit late, he’s found a way out of the nuthouse–and now he lives somewhere wonderful in Asia. The timeline of this exchange starts at the bottom and moves up. Good luck.

Yea, right dude, I think every government head of every department should also get a slush fund to farm out their own little fiefdoms, server farms, private plane, and why not make sure they have a few “non-profits” on the side run by their family members to take in the slush money coming from the corporate sector for favours coming from their inside connections and little clans and oh, yea, why not give them private communications devises and why stop there, they should have their own private security, I mean yea, we should pay for that to, fuck the secret service… they can’t be trusted, small armies are better… And why stop there…

Dear Old Friend, 

The Clinton email scandal has already taken a turn, old friend. Can’t wait to hear your… reaction to this one. Clinton set up her own personal email servers at her friggin house! The only thing holding me back from doing the same thing is the fact that my current internet connection’s upload speed is too slow. When my better-half and I finally move, though, and we can get a connection that’s fast enough, I’m hosting my own email servers and my own website servers. 

I want a prez and an elitist that is this ontop of technology, dude! No laws broke. Smarts prevailed. This is badass man. Clinton rocks!

FUCK HATE FUCK

So, like, what are we talking about now? Ok. Whatever. Since you ran a business you should know best how America is a business. It’s not a country. Why would you expect politicians to do anything on your behalf? ( Assuming that’s what you want?) The constitution protects money-interests (period). You do know that, right? Are you part of those interests, Old Friend? What fight do you think you’re fighting with FUCK HATE FUCK and complaining about library donations? Clinton pulled the wool over conservatives and I hope she continues. Yeah. Hillary for prez! May The Clinton family reign–until your bitchin’ has something better to offer.

FUCK HATE FUCK

I HATE to think that H. Clinton would ever be president!!  What the FUCK.  Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton (Oh yea the obligatory minority thrown in there).  Do you hear what you are saying, Dude?  What the FUCK?  Besides, I am not about the politics behind this email thing.  I ran a company, I run organizations, I understand how many levels what she did was crazy and I would fire dozens of people over this and basically put her in jail.  The $500,000 “gift” from an African nation to the Clinton “library” or whatever is just a tip of the iceberg.  This is one corrupted family. Remember, Bush Sr. said Mr. President Clinton was “like another son” to him.  Yea, you go for that complete bitch and the legacy of 1/2 of our adult lives run by a couple families and look in the mirror and tell yourself that there is any kind of democracy left in that country.

Whatever man,  I don’t need a chill pill, this is not politics, it’s real BS and it is a blanket representation of what is totally wrong with the US government at every level.

Dear Old Friend, 

Ok. Things are getting heated. Just like old times. Right. Btw, I read the article. I understand the seriousness of the allegations. But that is all they are right now. I will not over-react to them. Complaining about the ruling “elites” is also a bit whacked out for me at this point. I will wait to see, like the Benghazi conspiracy before it—and, btw, just like those same nut-bags tried to stir back in the 90s with “Whitewater”–who and what is trying to turn a mouse into an elephant. The way the article is written is suspicious at best and is most-likely one of those typical NYT reports made by moles from ideologue pundits. The article even mentions that private email use is allowed but is not supposed to be used for work because that prevents curators of history from codifying what government officials do. Gee, who would think about looking into Clinton’s private email use as a political tool? I wouldn’t be surprised if Clinton comes out and defends herself on that basic premise plus the fact that she felt this private email account would be safer for her while swimming in a shark-infested neocon government post dipshit Dubya pool! My prediction is this will turn into just another attempt by the rightwing to slander Clinton because she is the democratic front-runner. FYI. I want Clinton for Prez for the simple reason that she would represent a major slap in the face to post Reagan, religious nutbaggery, neocon idiocy that has caused America to be the lead in the race to the bottom of the twenty-first century. Failing upwards, man. There’s not stopping it. Yeah. Fail upwards. And. When was there a time without minions being ruled by elites? When was there a time when power didn’t corrupt? Come to this part of the world. Got a chill-pill for ya.

If you read the article, questions have been asked for a long time about why she was using a private email.  Dude, this issue is all there is to “overreact” to.  This is absolutely crazy, irresponsible and shows at the core how the Clinton’s think of themselves part of the global elite and above even the most basic security rationale and that they have no sense of responsibility to the public they supposedly represent.  I mean there are so many layers of how this is bad there is no place to even start!!  Dude, the total irresponsibility of this alone, let alone the total incomprehensible privacy when dealing with de US foreign policy and corruption all of the world.  You have no idea of the level of self enrichment that can happen with someone in that power being able to communicate completely out of the reigns of public accountability and on top of that, this also suggest Clinton did not want her email to be “read” by the multiple spy agencies that monitor everything.  I mean, the US government is not even able to create firewall’s between departments and to keep political policy out of the reach of idiots in spy or defence?  Dude, I could write a dissertation on how wrong this is, how many levels this kind of behavior speaks to the attitude of Clinton, the attitude of the other people running the country to allow it to happen and the sheer ignorance of allowing something like this to happen in the United States!!  This kind of behavior is expected in ex Colonial countries where the elites run and live in a separate world with complete disdane for their population at large… This is not expected from the Sec of State of the US… Dude, for you to even suggest this is not wrong on every level humanly conscientiously imaginable makes me very concerned indeed.  Maybe a year in a place like (insert place outside US here) will wake up someone to what abuse of power, utter corruption at every level and elitism by those with access to power really is.  I am awake man, and this should be punished at every level and the idiots that run security and who are responsible for the security of the US should figure out this should never happen again!!!

This is NOT about politics.. I have to repeat this a million times… This is about total irresponsibility, elitism, complete lack of control/oversight/accountability…

Dear Old Friend,

No need to over-react. There seems to be a lot of that lately. Be patient and wait and see who takes the reins that will politicise this. If she exposed sensitive material and that can be proven then she might be toast. But here’s the rational question at hand: who, how and why was this info given to NYT?

Dude, this is absolutely amazing.  This is not politics.  This is real issue!  To have the Sec of State using private email like that is absolutely criminal, allows self enrichment, exposes policies to hackers and criminals etc.  You have not idea how crazy this is.

Your Old Friend


Dear Old Friend,

We’ll see what comes of this but my guess is it’s nothing. Or at best another attempt to smear Clinton because she’s gonna run for prez. Remember they couldn’t get her on Benghazi.

Hi Tom,

Talk about everything that’s wrong with everything that’s wrong with everything that’s wrong with a secretary of state of the US using a private email account exclusively for 4 years!!! Dude, there is like everything that’s wrong with everything that’s wrong with everything that’s wrong with this!!!

I mean, Snowden? He is an angel compared to this!!! Shit, so is Wikileak’s Assange. I mean this is sanctioned by the US government? The same one that is spying on every damn person in the world? Who the FUCK allowed this and WHO the FUCK will get fired or put in jail for it?

If not, the US is totally FUCKED and the government is WORTHLESS at every imaginable level one could imagine!!

Your Old Friend
