I've been thinking about this, periodically, ever since it was first reported, which was quite awhile back. I don't know if the Gov't. has followed through with it, but I've come to the conclusion that it's not a bad idea, as far as I can see. I'm not an Expert on High Finance, by an stretch of the imagination, but this might go a long way toward solving the Corrupt Banking System.

I kinda doubt it, don't you?:)
This is a classic example of what I've been saying, two extremely intelligent People that don't have common sense enough to water out of a bucket.

If any Man had emailed me the kind of childish "love talk" stuff that she went ga-ga over, I would have thought he was some kind of a Nut. Yet, she fell for it like a ton of brick and then, was stupid enough to threaten some Women, four months after Petraeus dumped her...and thought nothing would become of it. Now, how nuts to you have to be, to do stuff like that?
Maybe, they are both have "Risk-Taker" Personalities, because the way they went about it, was almost like they wanted to be caught...and they both had so much more to lose than a Spouse and a Marriage.
And speaking of that, I can't believe that neither Spouse has said, "I'm outta here", either. Both of them have been Nationally humiliated and they're still hanging in there. Blows my Mind!

Positioning for the next presidential election has already started. Jindal and Rubio are trying to get out front of the pack by throwing Romney under the bus. I have to wonder if what is left of the Republican party will sign on to a kinder gentler Republican party or if they will double down on the "makers" vs "takers" message that has served them so well in this cycle. Christie is well positioned to be a (slightly) more moderate voice for Republicans, having won once and almost assuredly twice in a historically blue state. The old southern strategy which delivered the White House for Nixon is all but dead and Tampa has ticked off the Ron Paul wing, so if Republicans are to be successful in 2016 and beyond, some new ideas will have to be incorporated in their strategy and the party platform. Putting Rubio on the ticket will NOT automatically deliver Hispanics for Republicans without a sea change in the Republican base regarding non-white Americans...something that has not happened since the Dixiecrats found the welcome mat out for them in the Republican Party in the mid 1960's.
Obamacare will be implemented in 2014 and 40 million Americans will finally have access to affordable health insurance, provided for them by a Democratic President. This program has the potential to become as popular as Social Security and that helped to propel the Dems to victory in 5 consecutive presidential races and cemented Democratic majorities in congress for many years. In the next year or two, if the economy rebounds and unemployment continues to fall, the Republican party will have little left of their usual issues to run on. Obama has neutralized their advantage on foreign policy and the military... supporting the rich helped to erode their numbers in this cycle and the social wedge issues did more harm than good. The GOP COULD be on the verge of a big reinvention that will move them into the 21st century or they can double down on what worked for them in 1968 and 1980...I suspect they will double down ....or at least I hope they do.

If the Republican Party doesn't separate themselves from the Tea Party and make some major changes of coming into the 21 Century, representing ALL of the People instead of just the Wealthiest, advocating moving the Country ahead instead of back to the Stone Age, recognizing that Women are People, too, entitled to the same rights as Men, and learn that honesty is demanded and expected from our viable Political Candidates, as well as full Political Disclosure...then, in 4 years, the Republican Party will be as irrelevant as yesterday's lunch and almost as obscure. And it's Candidates will not be seriously considered for any Political Office. It's "Make or Break" time for the Republican Party and it's Leaders need to recognize that Fact! Whether they will or not remains to be seen!

In the case of the Kelly woman, I think of the husband more as a pimp rather than a cuckolded husband. There are children in both marriages though. The Broadwell husband probably wants the least collateral damage. And what does the Kelly socialite's husband want?

Honey, you're asking me something that I can't answer. I can't relate to any of their actions or their thoughts, as far as having a cheating Spouse is concerned. If I were the Spouse of any of the Guilty Parties, having to look at them everyday would be much more painful that divorcing them, and moving on with my Life and away from them. But you know, that may still happen because I just can't imagine that something that publicly humiliating can ever be forgotten or forgiven...and to top it all off, the Broadwell Woman just can't shut up about it!

Why do you care what the republicans do? You will never vote for them - your best candidate is the socialist Bernie Sanders.

I love all the suggestions you have for the party you would never vote for.

Let's face it, as another poster commented just before the election, there are more workers than bosses in this country. In addition, there are more takers, lazy, stupid, and drug addled people than bosses. And our schools are indoctrinating the kids in getting that which they think they’re owed, without having paid the price. Two plus two equals five will get you a gold star for trying.

Free food. Free rent. Free contraceptives. Free abortions. Free heat. Free college. Free everything without achieving anything.

The republicans will never govern again, because too many people are used to getting without having done anything for it.

Your problem will be paying for all of this. History has shown that when achievers are penalized, they stop working or they take their ball and go somewhere else.

The problem is that Republicans have no other loyal constituiency left except for the tea party. I will go even further, I submit for the most part the tea party IS the Republican party. Driven from the ranks of Republicans are young people, unmarried women, gays, blacks, Jews, Hispanics, those with advanced degrees and the Dems have even made inroads with married women. No amount of lip service will move these constituiencies back into the Republican column. That will take an effort to move toward a platform that is not just less hostile to minorities, but one that is welcoming to them. One that is not just less demeaning to women but acknowledges their equality with men. A platform not riddled with social issues that most Americans thought were litagated long ago. Can you see any of the remaining Republicans on this thread becoming welcoming to any constituiency that is not white as white bread, southern, evangelical, male and heterosexual ? Not a chance.
It isn't that I don't think Republicans can win a few more elections the way they are because they can, but the trend is not their friend and with each subsequent loss comes a chance to evolve or lose a few more members. The party that does not believe in evolution is being called upon to do so or they will become a regional party of the Old South and an ever shrinking middle west. Right now, my bet is on the latter.

Because I am an East Tennessean, I have voted for MANY more Republicans than Democrats. That being said with each subsequent election I have found fewer and fewer that I could in good concience cast my vote for. The party of Lincoln is fast becoming a party of idiots and if some of them had any less brainpower they would have to be watered twice a week. Keep up the good work.
