Who will apply the law to her? Her political allies in the DOJ? Who will look into it? Her political allies in the press?

When someone can never be held accountable, aren't they above the law?

Tomorrow: Everyone who wants her to follow the rules: sexists. They just don't like women in power.

Hello there. Nice to meet you. We don't know each other, but I own a Galaxy S2.

I don't automatically get a new phone every two years and I know quite a few people who own smart phones and are like me - use it until it's worthwhile to upgrade.

The new S6 phones may very well be worth getting, though. :)

I'd like to hear a good explanation why this isn't just self-reinforcing groupthink. For every 10 genuine facts, you'll see some widely quoted falsehood like "1 in 5 women on college campuses is sexually assaulted" promoted by Google as a fact. These kinds of bogus statistics are very common.

Many things may be possible at some time in the future. But I was responding to a post that specifically mentioned "50 years from now".

Exaggerating climate change to alarm people isn't working. Stop doing it. If you want people to take the threat seriously, be honest.

If you just want to troll people, divide people, and score petty political points for your side until the next issue gives you a new opportunity, then keep it up.
