Ya know, instead of listening to what the politicians *say*, we could look at what the politicians *do*.

The two biggies I can think of are job outsourcing and civil rights. Let's see what Hillary has been doing for the last few years:

Voted YES on reauthorizing the PATRIOT Act. (Mar 2006)
Voted YES on establishing a Guest Worker program. (May 2006)
Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security. (May 2006)
Opposes illegal immigration, but doesn’t vote to follow up. (Jun 2007)
Sponsored bill funding social services for noncitizens. (May 2006)
Voted YES on loosening restrictions on cell phone wiretapping. (Oct 2001)
Rated 60% by the ACLU, indicating a mixed civil rights voting record. (Dec 2002)

Overall, a mixed bag of non-caring of our jobs and rights.

Do we want yet another president that doesn't care about the people?

Considering that ISIS was trying to scam them, it seems more like a situation where they managed to take the bait without springing the trap. It's just like the pool hustler. He lets you win one for chump change to get you hooked. If you see it coming and say that's enough for you, he's out the money fair and square.

I think most of us recognize it when we see it, but keep stirring up that mud! In fact, I did set a few parameters for it.

As for the world comment, the cost of living in the area matters a lot as well. In some places, that $10k would get 3 or 4 months living in an apartment that barely meets code but wouldn't pay for utilities so you'd be put on the street anyway.

I would say though that wanting to live somewhere around the median for one's region isn't greedy. Wanting enough in a single year to be able to retire on with a median lifestyle is.

You will lose an important tape file.
