A year ago, America was spared the presidency of Bill Clinton’s wife.

So, what are some of the salutary effects of not having Bill Clinton’s wife as president? Not having the SCOTUS stacked with Ruth Bader Ginsburgs and Sonia Sotomayors is one. Not having ICE handing out voter registration and welfare forms at the border is another. Not having environmental regulation and policy set by collusive “sue and settle” actions between the EPA and radical Eco-nut groups.

What else?

  1. How about someone in the White House trying to lower taxes instead of making us pay “our fair share”?

    Comment by dThomas Dell — November 8, 2017 @ 10:26 am - November 8, 2017

  2. Incoming-Gov. Frank ‘Goldman Sachs‘ Murphy (D-NJ) has been advised by his progressive allies to raise the State Sales Tax from 7% to 10-12% and double the State Income Tax to cover the short-fall in the State Union pension funds, …and to H*ll with the residents or taxpayers of NJ. ** Surprise!! **

    …Meanwhile the GOP “brain trust” on Capital Hill wants to end our local and state taxes deductibility. !!Yay!!

    “Fair Share” my a**, let’s drive all the wealth-producers away, that way everyone can be on the Dole.

  3. A $15-minimum Minimum Wage and even-more gun-control are “progressive” no-brainers, and State and public employees’ pension benefits are “sacred and can’t be touched”!

    Apparently Murphy thinks he’s been elected governor of Puerto Rico.

  4. In NJ, you can go to prison for moving an unloaded rifle from your old house to your new house. How many more “common sense gun laws” do they need?

    Comment by V the K — November 8, 2017 @ 12:57 pm - November 8, 2017

  5. There can never be too-many “common sense” gun laws, especially if you only selectively-enforce them with inappropriate logic.

    And Heavens-help-you should you actually defend yourself with “self-defense rounds” in your handgun; they’re hollow-points and hollow-points are ILLEGAL to actually shoot-someone with. **snert** “Full-metal-jacket, lead-nose or wad-cutters-only, …we’re in New Jersey.”

  6. What else were we spared?
    1. A coherent foreign policy
    2. Wisdom and principled action in governance
    3. Sensible economic policy
    4. Boredom

    It has been a very interesting year to date. 🙂

  7. The entertainment of seeing the left disintegrate into a frothing mass of paranoid lunacy.

    Comment by Karen — November 8, 2017 @ 3:50 pm - November 8, 2017

  8. Cas, yes we were spared all of those things with a missed Clinton presidency.

    1. The coherent foreign policy of embroiling ourselves ever further in Middle Eastern conflicts, always backing the faction who destabilize the region even more so

    2. The wisdom and principled action of Democrats doing whatever the hell they feel like

    3. The sensible economic policy of deals that favor geopolitical rivals and enemies, and domestic donors

    3. The boredom of Hillary Clinton always getting her way.

    Yes, we were spared a lot of things this election.

  9. Contrary to my usual practice I did read the bile that Cas wrote. Nothing but demonstratable lies as usual I don’t know why people even bother to respond to her. She only knows what her Democrat media tells her.

    Comment by Hanover — November 8, 2017 @ 5:39 pm - November 8, 2017

  10. We were also spared having to watch the Clintons go through the motions of pretending to be a happily-married, devoted “couple next door” when we all know they live separate lives. At this point, they each have all the money and ersatz-adoration they could possibly need, independent of one another. She does her thing, and he does his [pretty young] thing[s]. If she had won [/shudders], they may have felt compelled to revive the kabuki theater exercise that was their public marriage.

  11. I think a fair amount of the DJT drama is created by the media (and the fact that Trump can’t just it go sometimes). A Clinton presidency would be boring in that the MSM would look the other way most of the time and GOP opposition, as is the case so often, would be ineffectual.

    A big part of the problem is that POTUS has become too important. Too many on both sides see POTUS as a king (queen) and too many presidents see themselves as rulers, not CEOs of a gov’t limited by the Constitution.

    Having a Congress that has abdicated its duty to govern contributes to the disaster. It’s easier to snipe from the halls of congress than it is to govern responsibly and do things that involve accountability.

    The swamp is dark and deep.

  12. @ KCRob: Fans of a certain books series/tv show might rephrase that as, “for the swamp is dark and full of cronies.”

  13. Cas, what part of Secretary of state HRC’s Syria policy was coherent? Or her ukraine policy, or her Libya policy?

    Because it amuses us.

    If you want to make Piss Cas vanish, all you need do is to point out, for example, how Piss Cas and its Hillary supported and endorsed Obama ordering the CIA to spy on political opponents and then lie about it, which violates all the laws Democrats are shrieking about around “hacking”, the law preventing the CIA from spying on Americans, and the law against lying to Congress, not to mention the entire concept of separation of powers in the Constitution.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/01/world/senate-intelligence-commitee-cia-interrogation-report.html

    Once Piss Cas has to acknowledge that, Piss Cas runs away, because it exposes how Piss Cas’s Hillary is a malicious liar and a criminal who believes in the abuse of government power — and that Barack Obama, Piss Cas’s idol, has a long and extensive history of wiretapping and trying to have arrested political opponents like Trump.

  15. For one, we were spared Mrs. Clinton’s supposed legitimacy, i.e. her expected election would have essentially sent the Clinton machine the message that no one except a few fringe kooks really care what they did over the several decades of crime and complete lack of ethics — just that a woman would be elected POTUS and one for which the media would spend its likely 8 years telling non-deplorables that the economy is wonderful, etc. Just like they did with Obama, a series of photo ops, carefully crafted speeches that say nothing, and opinion pieces that recycle the shopworn phrase that the US has finally entered the 20th, let alone the 21st, century. We were spared congenital corruption made palatable to many by a dishonest media intent on a saccharine agenda, laws be damned.

  16. Coherent foreign policy: champing at the bit to go to war with Russia after selling them 20% of our uranium. Turng Libya into a dumpster fire. Creating ISIS, and the resulting refugee crisis.

    Wisdom and principled action: illegally using an unsecured private device to handle classified information.

    Sensible economic policy: taxing workers, and giving the money to able-bodied young adult welfare recipients in exchange for votes. Cutting veterans’ hard-earned benefits, while providing benefits to illegal aliens.

    Re: New Jersey, if someone shoots a mugger, justifiably in self-defense, and the round nose full metal jacket bullet over-penetrates and kills an innocent bystander, can the victim’s widow or widower sue the state, because they required the citizen to use dangerously over-penetrative ammunition?

  17. Hi Aerinyes,
    I don’t have to defend HC. She wasn’t elected. DT is your guy, not mine, Aerinyes.
    Hi Hanover,
    If you can state the “demonstrable lies” have at it, sport.
    Hi North Dallas Thirty,
    Miss you, big guy.
