    We pay their salaries whether they are doing this research, prosecuting actual criminals, or colluding to further the swamp rot.

  • And is looking 12 years back in a nominee's record normal for a Deputy Attorney General?

    I'm sure the cost will never top the 30 million dollars tax payers were stuck with for the fruitless investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and Benghazi.

  • Fruitless???

    Who is the current president?

    Money spent to save much more money at a future time is money well spent.

  • Yes, fruitless because she didn't get sent to prison. And speaking of emails, did you notice how coincidental it was that the Russians hacked the DNC right after the speech of candidate Trump where he wondered if they had the emails.

  • You mean right after the FBI repeatedly warned both parties to take further steps to secure their computers, but the DNC decided they knew better?

    Why can't I find the crossword puzzle in the T-G Online? What am I doing wrong or what is T-G Doing wrong? That is the only reason my wife buys the T-g and they can't get it delivered to Bell Buckle any more at least not on time.

    All the Demo-rats are so concerned with what Trump read while standing next to Putin, and the whole wide world is upset because trump said one word they didn't like in his speech he read,YET none of them are the least bit interested in all the classified information Hillary gave to Putin and his merry band of criminals who are spies that do spying on all the countries just like we do.

    Just what words did Putin get from Hillary's emails? No one is willing to say what Putin got off Hillary's server and the DNC server.

    I wounder why the US Intelligent Agencies are NOT investigating what was stolen from her server?

    It's like it doesn't apply to Trump, so they don't want to know what Putin has that he can use against the United States Government! I double we will ever know because the intell agencies are smart enough to get the information out of Putin. It is his secret and Hillary Clinton's secret. Then again, she probably don't know what was on her server either, because everyone was using it, even Anthony Wiener.

    And since it was cleaned by her lawyers, she gave them access to all the classified documents on her server in cluding the emails from the DNC. I doubt her lawyers had security clearances for the information they had to read before deciding what to save and what to delete. Since Hillary was under investigation, she wasn;t suppose to keep her security clearance, so how did she get security briefings while running for POTUS? Oh yeah, the corrupt security intell agencies gave her the briefing too against all security laws on classified briefings. Did Putin get those briefing documents also from Hillary's server?

    I would be more worried about what Putin got from Hillary's server than what Trump said about our brain dead ignorant intelligent agencies who spent over a year trying to find something they could say was collusion. The Demo rats are throwing the word "Treason" around but that word would apply to Hillary and eXpotUS. Obama. They are the real traitors not trump.

  • We too have delayed delivery in BB area. Don’t know if this will be the new “norm”, if they are stretched thin from vacations or something else.

    Not being an employee of the paper, I have no inside connections. We will probably call or send an email to Circulation@t-g.com

    Who pays the expenses? Everyone knows that answer. It is the Taxpayers! But... You have to ask yourself, Which Taxpayers? Remember, over 50% of the American people do not pay taxes, and many of the people who do pay the taxes get a huge discount if they go to one of those Tax places that get you off the hook for pennies on the dollar.

    So, just who is paying the Income Tax? Here is who is suppose to pay taxes: All Government Officials, Officers and employees, 14th Amendment Citizens (AKA) Federal Citizens, big corporations, everyone who voluntarily pays taxes and anyone who purchases a license to do business in the United States. However, it all comes down to this. The government is bankrupt and doesn't have the money. You will see shortly just how bankrupt the government is when they threaten to shut down the government if they don't raise the deficit again that will cover all those taxpayer bills the government has run up. So the US Government and the States must pay the taxpayer taxes not the people, (except for the government employees, businesses, federal citizens and people who volunteered to pay taxes).

    Pretty cut and dry, huh?

    We've been broke for years. And the SOP for both parties is to just kick the can down the road. I can hear unreal, RV, and laz now: "if only people would pay their fair share"! And they have a point. They just think they have a different point. If everyone had to pay taxes, an awful lot of people would pay a whole lot more attention to who they vote for to spend that tax money.
