We are a nation withOUT checks and balances.

That's my thought on what occurred yesterday when the FBI chose not to charge Hilary Clinton for her gross negligence (intended or not, but well she is was the Secretary of State) in handling classified materials. One would think she had an understanding of handling materials that are classified.

Go about your day, it seems no one really cares.


Update on myself

Yep, I'm still working in my research position. I'm still volunteering at DCF. And my views on children and families connected to both sides of maternal and paternal biological kin has not changed.


  1. One thing, little noted, is that Ms Clinton was an original classification authority.  Turns out that just because you come up with something that is new and we don't want "the other side" to see it you can't classify it.  You can do so if it is derivative of something already classified.  But, if it is "original" you have to go to Madame Secretary to get her determination.  So, she was the person at the top.

    The other thing is that this suggests that no one at State was willing or able to say to Ms Clinton that she was doing it wrong.   That doesn't bode well for the future.

  2. What I don't see anyone discussing is how all the little fish beneath her got away as well. Simply handling classified material in an improper manner is illegal and they all skated. There must have been over 100 people who saw and knew what was going on, none of whom follower proper procedures.

    LOL. Nothing matters.
