We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Jim: Obama planning to attack Russia to stop further Hillary disclosures
The U.S. has a responsibility to protect private and government emails from espionage, and to prevent a foreign power from intervening in U.S. elections. There's a real concern the Russians will attempt to manipulate voter registration records, leading to chaos at the polls, or to tamper with vote tallies, undermining confidence in the results. It's a danger to the very heart of the democratic process.
But even if average voters had the TV on 24/7, they still probably haven’t heard the news about Hillary Clinton: That the nation now has proof of pretty much everything she has been accused of.
False. For instance, CBS News (most recent evening news broadcast): "Clinton aide's hacked emails keep pouring out." Every major news source has provided stories on the Clinton leaks on their evening news broadcasts.
But even if average voters Kimberly Strassel had the TV on 24/7, she still probably wouldn't have heard the news about Hillary Clinton — because she doesn't have her listening ears on. Strassel is supposed to be a journalist and a newspaper editor, but she can't be bothered to check her facts before publishing.
