Hillary-Smart, or dumb as a rock

The last few days the liberal news media has been extolling the virtues of the Clintons for paying such a high tax rate. I'm just wondering what the general consensus is in the group. Does a high tax rate show some great quality we want in a POTUS, or does it show she is dumb as a rock and not qualified?

    In the first place...it's free money to them...the real money, stolen, is in the foundation.

    I would say they are clever, foxy and devious is not a measure of "Smart: Just further proof of no conscience.

      Agreed - devious, clever and calculating are not the same as "smart"- and after Comey's cave-in and Lynch's willful blindness re: the deluge of hard evidence indicating illegal misconduct, Hillary seems just naive enough to believe she's the smartest guy in the room. She isn't, as the uproar over dereliction of duty by Comey/Lynch suggests.

      Eventually the "foundation" will finally get them caught. Any charitable foundation that gives 15% (under 80%) of their income is a scam. Rich people should run foundations and do it for free. I've always liked the idea of one dollar a year CEO pay system for charities, that equates to no scam. Remember a guy named Romney?

    Like everything else the Clintons do, they use the tax payment as a ploy to indicate their patriotism, and generosity, and to point out how Scrooge-like the opposition is for taking advantage of every deduction possible.

    She is conniving. Always thinking to the next election. Get tht tax return you want to share, pay a bit now, hide the real stuff in the Foundation. Buy a few million dollar estates and good to go. Then, invite Khan, with whom she had connections as Sec. of State, but when it gets hot, keep silent. Finally, pick a VP who has taken more money from Soros than anyone, and who also has the same Muslim ties Hillary does, and you know the money will flow and flow. So what's one tax return.

    One would have to describe her as intelligent IQ-wise however as with a great many of "intelligent" people, she lacks an ethical underpinning (even when she was on the Watergate committee going after Nixon) without which, intelligence is negated!

    In addition, she has an over-abundance of; 1) Ambition, 2) Arrogance and 3) a lack of respect for individuals she deems below her stature!

    For these reasons and based upon her years of past performance, one would have to conclude she is a functional idiot because she never weighed the ramifications of her audacity and disdain for the law and the people she supposedly professes to champion.

    Between her being an obvious hypocrite and her arrogance she is now suffering what most pathological liars suffer, exposure for what she truly is and even her lapdog, Mainstream media is having trouble covering for her audacity and stupidity!

    In closing, I think that she has made herself into a total, functional idiot who appeals only to others like her! For what its worth!

    It shows a degree of paranoia, in that investment, as the rest of us think of it, is a game of skill aimed at maximizing return. Our current tax system is set up to encourage and reward investors. Hillary is used to playing with a deck stacked in her favor, with everything rigged. She doesn't believe that anyone who plays by the rules can make money, especially when her money-laundering machine is working so well.

    It is easy to pay zero tax. 1. Lose a lot of money; 2. Make huge investments (creating tons of jobs) and take the interest deductions, business expenses such as depreciation and tax credits; 3. Make huge donations to charity. But each of those require the spending of lots of money. In her case, paying a lot of taxes is brilliant. First the money was given to them and second, it is done to get her elected - liberals are not the generous kind!

    Let me get this straight. It's patriotic to pay exorbitant extortion to a bunch of crooks, theives and traitors along with allowing them to use insider trading to retire off their tainted earnings

    instead of and having little other choice

    attempting to use their rules to keep as much of your honestly earned money and wealth as possible.

    Hillary Smart has it's followers ....SUCKERS!

    Well let's see how generous they really are. They donated almost $1M of which over 90% went to the Clinton Foundation, which unlike most legitimate non-profit foundation operates on on 93% of proceeds in salaries and expenses and only about 7% to charity they claim to support. They, as well and many of their chronies, receive salaries for whatever work they do in the Foundation. So, from one pocket to another, how much of their generosity actually goes to charity? Sounds like the Florida Democrat Congresswoman, Corrine Brown, indicted recently for taking funds for a non-profit organization, giving out two $1200 scholarships and spending the rest of the $800K collected on herself and two other co-conspirators. The biggest difference in addition to being caught, is that Brown dealt in thousands of dollars and the Clintons in millions. Otherwise, they both share the same kind of generosity.

    Hillary and Bill have accumulated so much money with their speaking fees and clinton foundation that it doesnt matter how much she sheds back to the US government. She is pretty crooked as politicians go. But then again, the higher ups in socialist societies are the ones who accumulate the wealth taken from the masses.

    Well, last week we all learned that Hillary and Bubba tried to pull a fast one with their income tax releases: They “contributed” more than a million dollars to charity, and at first glance, seemed quite admirable. One wonders “why would they do that?”

    Now, as we get into the weeds, it appears that Crooked Hillary and Bubba contributed $ 1 million to their own charity, The Clinton Foundation !!!!!!!!!!! No kidding, folks. They claimed a million dollar deduction, but basically recycled a million smackaroos back to themselves, which obviously, is quite illegal…..let’s see what the IRS decides to do on this, and if the Trumpster can make some hay on this. There is no shame to the Clintons, none…………

    You just can’t make this stuff up !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Regards

    Really where I was going with this is why would anybody with a room temperature, or higher IQ pay such a high tax rate? Warren Buffet makes way more than Billybob and Hitlery and pays a substantially lower rate. That being the case, do we REALLY want someone that stupid to be POTUS? Or, is there an ulterior motive?
