I don't trust Google to keep it around once it's no longer in Google's best interests to do so and since social networking isn't Google's focus or primary source of revenue, I can't trust that.

It's not that I begrudge them the decision to do what's in their own best interests but I have that same decision to make and Google+ doesn't align with them.

Unfortunately, this is largely the natural progression of society. Back then, we didn't know how to handle these kids, thus we ham stringed them from the get go. They had the unfortunate luck to be born at a time when we're just awakening to the idea that we should treat children differently than adults, and with absolutely NO awareness that different children require different rearing techniques.

The good news is that, despite all the bullshit,we really have progressed quite far. I doubt, 80 years from now were you to quiz a similar group of kids from today, you'd get the same response. No, instead you might hear how society let them down, that they always felt society always failed to live up to their expectations.

Ah, progress!

You got an proof with that? Because what I hear is the same old bullshit I've hear republicans say since Clinton was in office.

This bit of information came to the public's attention because of a Democrat. Dick Morris spilled the beans when the Clinton's let him get pilloried in the court of public opinion.

And I don't actually care much, because the sex shit with Clinton was no fucking big deal at all, it's like when you are arguing with someone and they start picking on your grammar.

Of course you don't care. No one who cares about decency or the rule of law would consider voting for Hillary. It's nothing like picking apart someone's grammar. Hillary Clinton was involved with denying due process and justice to women who were sexually assaulted by her husband.

You have nothing else on the Clintons, 'cept this one minor sex shit and it's blown out of proportion.

Out of proportion?

Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick. Bill Clinton sexually assaulted Kathleen Willey. Bill Clinton sexually harassed Paula Jones.

When deposed in Paula Jones's civil case, he committed perjury. He instructed people that if they lied, the investigators would have nothing. He suborned perjury. He committed Obstruction of Justice. These are all felonies that would get you or me incarcerated.

Fuck, the VP is way the fuck more creepy then Clinton ever was, at least Clinton has the decency to not hit on women during their husbands speech.

You call it decency for Bill Clinton to grope Kathleen Willey's breast and forcibly put her hand on his penis while her husband's dead body was being recovered?

Joe Biden is a crazy asshole but he's nowhere near Bill Clinton in terms of sleaze.

I don't care about Bill Clinton's consensual sex life.

I'm not talking about Monica.

I'm talking about Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick, not to mention the other women who recanted their allegations after Hillary's forces put pressure on them.

She victimized women who were assaulted by her husband.

That's far worse than Bill's hanky-panky with an intern.
